Hmm. Wonder why she felt the need to clarify this point now.
When Alicia Keys first started seeing her now husband Swizz Beatz, there was speculation that she had gotten involved with him BEFORE he had officially left his wife. Alicia has remained mum on these allegations for a long time, but in a recent interview, she finally admitted that she was never the "homewrecker" people painted her out to be. She explained:
"We didn't start seeing each other until months after they had separated. I was aware of all the false things that were being said about me it definitely hurt."
People talk. The most important thing is that you didn't let the gossip keep you two from creating a life together - or the tirades from his ex-wife, who fueled the gossip fires by telling people Alicia had "destroyed" her family. Of her husband's ex, Alicia said:
"I was sure that if I engaged it would become back-and-forth like some sick entertainment, which goes against everything I believe and would have made things worse."
So, do you guys remember who Wayne Chang is? He's was another person in the failed ConnectU project, and now he's suing them because they allegedly elbowed him out of the $65 million dollar settlement they got from Facebook in 2008.
We would agree that he's entitled to a portion of that settlement, of which he didn't see a penny!
A judge finally said that the lawsuit can proceed for Chang, though it was all the way back in 2009 when it was filed:
The suit was filed back in December of 2009, but a judge just ruled it could proceed, meaning that while the Winklevii continue their doomed quest to re-sue Facebook they will be defending themselves from a lawsuit that claims they basically did the same thing to a guy that Zuckerberg did to them.
That's right, they're re-suing Facebook too.
Not going to lie, we aren't huge fans of the Winklevoss twins. They seem pretty shady/whiny/entitled to us.
Grow up, guys, and just enjoy the now estimated $100+ million your original settlement is worth! (Some of it was paid out to them in Facebook stock.)
Two of the biggest movie-making companies in the biz are at each other's throats over the distribution rights to the movie The Crow.
Basically, Relativity owns the rights to the movie right now, but agreed to hand over the rights to the Weinstein Company so they could distribute it. The Weinstein Company claims Relativity reneged on the deal because they are still upset over what they call the "mishandling" of Nine, the last flick the two companies collaborated on.
So, Relativity is asking for $20 million in damages from Weinstein for Nine because it performed so poorly and they are refusing to hand over The Crow, claiming the studios lacks the $70 million necessary to release the film.
And what does the Weinstein Company have to say about this whole mess? Let's check in with their lawyer Bert Fields and see! Bert says:
"The allegations of the motion are absolute garbage. This claim was about a totally different picture. It should have been made at the time of 'Nine,' not now because they broke the contract on 'The Crow.' It's total hogwash, and I cant wait to get Mr. Kavanaugh on the witness stand."
