What a horrible week for Katy Perry!

In addition to having "tough conversations" with Capitol Music Group CEO and Chairman Steve Barnett, the Teenage Dream singer is reportedly "always late" to the set of American Idol!

Sadly, the 33-year-old is involved in another controversy, where she is being accused of stealing an artist's work!

On Wednesday, Dom Sebastian shared a post on Instagram saying the Santa Barbara-native flat out stole his 2012 artwork, and used it for the single cover of Chained To The Rhythm, the Hot Chip remix.

To make matters worse, Miz Perry is allegedly trying to profit off of Sebastian's piece by selling it as a $35 print.

The artist wrote:

"@katyperry has stolen my artwork (this piece is from 2012) and used it on her single cover - I was never contacted by her or anyone from her team or label @capitolrecords. What's more is that Katy has been selling my artwork as her own, as merchandise on her store, and through other outlets, as a $35 print. I'm shocked that @katyperry and @capitolrecords think it is acceptable to lift my work directly from my website and use it as they please without paying me or even contacting me. #exposed"

We bet Raven-Symoné didn't predict this!

On Thursday, former That's So Raven star Orlando Brown allegedly got into a loud argument with his girlfriend and her mother in Barstow, California. After the cops were called, they discovered there were active warrants for both him and his GF's madre!

As we reported in 2016, the Disney star was arrested for allegedly hitting his girlfriend in a police station parking lot while having meth on him. It's unclear if this girlfriend is the same one previously mentioned.

He was taken to jail for battery against a spouse, resisting arrest, and possession of a controlled substance.

Despite the drama, Brown appears to be in good spirits, as seen in his (above) smiley mug shot.

He was previously charged for drunkenly threatening a woman and her child back in 2014.

Heathers is a comedy classic, but you could never make that movie today.

So when we heard the salacious satire of all things high school — including suicide, date rape, and homophobia — was coming to the small screen in 2018, we had some questions.

The answers… are unexpected, that's for sure.

First off, each season will center around an entirely new group of Heathers (à la American Horror Story), starting with an unexpected trio including a genderqueer boy.

Also, the return of lone survivor Shannen Doherty AND some very politically incorrect language for basic cable.

Ch-ch-check out the NSFW red band trailer (below) to see what we mean!

Are the days of the Grammys numbered?

If the televised ceremony can't get the biggest names in music to attend, what chance do they have??

In previous years, Justin Bieber and Drake have both elected to skip out on the show because in their view it didn't accurately represent what's going on in music.

But this year, the sheer number of A-listers not attending is STAGGERING.

Justin Timberlake has reportedly already RSVPed a firm "no" ostensibly because he's too busy preparing for his Super Bowl performance. But he supposedly hasn't been on the best terms with the Recording Academy since they failed to show The 20/20 Experience as much love as he felt it deserved.

Now Hits Daily Double is claiming to know more artists who will not be in attendance — and some sketchy reasons why!

First, insiders say Taylor Swift won't

Disgraced Gymnastics Doctor Larry Nassar Begs Judge To Stop Victim Impact Stories — As McKayla Maroney SLAMS U.S. Olympics For Ignoring 'Red Flags'!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersOlympicsGymnasticsControversy

Deplorable convicted sexual predator Larry Nassar would rather not hear about all the times he sexually assaulted his patients.

The former Team USA gymnastics doctor wrote a letter to the court begging to end the witness statements, saying the unsettling stories about his abusive actions are bad for his mental health. We shit you not.

As we reported, 100 women are set to give victim impact statements to the court before Nassar is sentenced for his conviction of seven felony sexual assault charges.

50 women have shared their stories so far, detailing how Nassar broke them emotionally and, in some cases, made them consider suicide. But with 51 allegedly abused women still on deck, Nassar doesn't think he can take anymore.

The man actually wrote a letter to court officials, pleading to make it all stop — calling the court case a "media circus" that was "detrimental to his mental health."

Thankfully, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina silenced his pathetic ass in open court. Reminding Nassar he agreed to hear the witness statements as part of his plea deal, she said:
