Is it a little too late?

On Monday, it was reported that Kelly Ripa was issued a formal apology from Disney and ABC executives for "blindsiding" her with Michael Strahan's announcement that he's leaving Live! With Kelly & Michael for Good Morning America. Well good!

As you may know, the blonde beauty was PISSED when the network's head honchos revealed that the former NFL star would be leaving his co-hosting duties with Miz Ripa for a prime spot on GMA. Not to mention, rumors also began circulating that Live! may be cancelled in order to extend the other morning show by an hour — which resulted in the former soap opera star leaving her show for some vacation time a day early.

North Carolina Has No Future Now With Nick Jonas & Demi Lovato! They Cancelled Their Tour Stops Because Of That Anti-LGBTQ Law!

Way to go, you two!

Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato have decided to cancel their upcoming tour stops in North Carolina.

The pop powerhouses were supposed to play shows in both Raleigh and Charlotte, but have decided to pull the plug on those performances because of the state's anti-LGBTQ legislation.

About a month ago, Governor Pat McCrory signed House Bill 2, which states that local cities and towns can no longer create their own rules banning discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

HB2 also says that transgender individuals must use the bathrooms that match the "biological sex" on their birth certificates in public schools, government agencies, and public college campuses.

In light of this terrible piece of legislation, the musicians announced on Monday that their Honda Civic Tour: Future Now will not be stopping in NC, sharing their joint statement on Instagram.

Prince Reportedly Faced Extreme Money Problems Before His Untimely Passing

Filed under: R.I.P.PrinceSad SadBusiness Blitz

Get details about Prince's supposed financial issues.

Prince may have had an estimated net worth of over $100 million, but it turns out the singer struggled with money issues before he tragically passed away.

This could explain why his memorial service was so inexpensive.

Sources who advised the music icon are revealing that the late legend almost always turned down offers to sell or license his music catalogue for things like TV, commercials, and movies, which is how singers consistently make money.

So, the insiders explained that the way the artist earned his dough was through concerts, but they admitted that he was very impulsive when it came to scheduling shows, and would often put on performances spur of the moment.

Apparently, there were enough concerts that weren't super successful, and ultimately cost him a lot of cash.

But that's not all. Confidantes are also confessing that the hitmaker would tend to spend more than he had, and money had been an issue with him for years before his untimely death.

Less than a week before he died, the 57-year-old made an emergency landing due to a reported drug overdose, an according to audio from the plane, he was unresponsive while on the aircraft.
