Khloe Kardashian Congratulates Lamar Odom On Making NYT Best-Sellers List

Odom’s tell-all memoir, “Darkness To Light,” landed in the #6 spot.

Former NBA star Lamar Odom spilled all his secrets in his memoir Darkness To Light. Odom shared stories about his drug addiction, sexual exploits with prostitutes, personal failures, as well as behind-the-scenes details of his marriage to Khloe Kardashian. Not everything he said about his ex-wife and her family was favorable, but that didn’t keep Kardashian from showing Odom love on his Instagram earlier today.

Odom shared on social media that his memoir reached No. 6 on the New York Times best-sellers list. Overcome with emotion, Odom wrote in the caption, “Wow don’t know where to begin. We did this! We made @nytimes best sellers list for my first book, Darkness To Light! What felt like a lifetime of writing and working on this project finally came to Light and I am grateful to YOU ALL!”

“Your continued support and love is appreciated!” he continued. “It took a lot of courage for me to get so raw and candid with you all but I wanted you guys to get MY true story! I want to thank the best kids in the world @iamdestinyodom and Lamar Jr. ya’ll are my rock. Thanks for sticking with me during my hardest times. My true fans, my friends and family love ya’ll, @khloekardashian , @benbellabooks and my entire publishing team, my co-author Chris Palmer and last but not least the best publicist in the world @evesarkisyan for always doing your thing.”

Kardashian commented, “Look at God!!! Congratulations Lammy! Keep shining ✨🙏🏽.” The pair have had some rough times throughout the years, but they’ve been able to maintain a friendship. Odom stated in his book that he regretted cheating on his ex-wife and has said in multiple interviews that she was the love of his life.

Drake was boosted by holdings ranging from real estate to his Virginia Black whiskey, as well as a lucrative tour and new residency at the XS Nightclub in Las Vegas

4. Kanye West$240 million

Kanye’s rise to the top 5 is largely credited to his Adidas deal which which is still entirely based on a predicated conservative estimate of that brand’s value.

3. Diddy- $740 million

The majority of Diddy’s wealth is drawn from his holdings, including cable network Revolt and clothing line Sean John (though Diddy has sold much of his stake in the latter, he retains a sizeable piece). But Ciroc, the main driver of his fortune, is growing again after case volumes fell from all-time highs in recent years

2. Dr. Dre- $800 million

June 13, 2019 Kanye West Passes Drake On Forbes’ Richest Rappers List By Nearly $100 Million

Kanye West Passes Drake On Forbes’ Richest Rappers List By Nearly $100 Million

Much of Kanye West’s $240 million fortune comes from his work on Yeezy.

For several years, Drake and Kanye West have been playfully taking shots at one another. They started off as friends, respectfully recognizing the other as a pioneer in the hip-hop business model. Things turned sour though when their families got involved and now, Kanye alleges that he’s banned from speaking about Drake or his loved ones. When either of these two release new music, people will be looking out for any disses that could be directed at the other because at this point, everything is a competition between them. When it comes to finances, Kanye West has Drake cornered, surpassing him on the Forbes list by nearly $100 million in this year’s Richest Rappers series.

Each year, Forbes collects their data to determine who has the strongest net worth out of hip-hop’s businessmen and this year, one man stood worlds ahead of anybody else. Weeks after he was revealed to have become hip-hop’s first billionaire, Jay-Z is at the top of the list. Following him is Dr. Dre, whose headphone business ended up paying off supremely in the end. Diddy comes in the third spot but the competition between Kanye West and Drake maintains the 4 and 5 placements. As reported by Complex, Kanye West’s $240 million fortune was enough to earn him a spot in the Top 5 while Drake, the youngest member of the fivesome, clocked in a modest $150 million. 

With the growth of OVO as a brand and more to come from Drizzy Drake, we can expect the mogul to continue moving up over the next few years. Kanye West is also striving with Diddy, Hov and Dre all working hard on securing their legacies for the last decade. Check out the full list here.

June 8, 2019 Twitter Comes To Amy Adams’ Defence After She’s Put On “Bad At Acting” List

Twitter Comes To Amy Adams’ Defence After She’s Put On “Bad At Acting” List

Some are claiming the site just posted it to elicit a reaction.

We all know Twitter can get pretty worked up over the silliest little thing sometimes, but for once, it seems like they’ve found a worthwhile cause. A list published by Jezebel on “Actors Who Are Bad At Acting” is upsetting a lot of people. Oscar-winners such as Brie Larson, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicolas Cage (who, arguably, actually has a place on that list) made the top the list. Other names listed include Bradley Cooper, Kevin Costner and Gal Gadot. However, out of all of odd choices the author picked out, Amy Adams is the one that people will just not stand for.

The Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice award winner (along with six Oscar nominations and seven BAFTA noms) is being fiercely defended. These are just a few of the comments posted on Twitter: 

One user even claimed that the site was simply trying to get people riled up in the comment section to attract viewers, saying, “this is VERY “post it, people will get mad about it in the comments.” (I know this and yet also I’m ENRAGED that Amy Adams is on it. ENGRAGED.) – J” 

Do y’all think Amy Adams should’ve made the list?
