This week’s celebrity gossip includes bad behavior from so called role models, temper tantrums and a loss within the entertainment world. First up is rapper Afroman’s despicable performance at a recent concert where he reportedly punched a female fan in the face after she jumped on stage and started dancing behind him, during his performance. The venue staff then ended the concert on the spot and took him to a local police officer, who then arrested Afroman. According to the rapper’s representative, Afroman performed an involuntary reflex to defend himself from the fan.
As is the case most weeks, the Kardashians are also involved in celebrity gossip as Kanye West recently confessed to having lost some of his friends when he chose to start dating Kim Kardashian. He said that these were friends who didn’t like Kim to begin with, so when he started dating her they stopped speaking to him. Much of the controversy the couple has faced has to do with the fact that Kim is a reality TV star, which many people seem to find trashy. Kanye shot down the couple’s haters by declaring that the two have actually caused improvements in each other.
Not one to be outdone by her sister, Khloe Kardashian is also the subject of gossip this week as her rivalry with Amber Rose continues to play out on Twitter. Amber Rose is once again claiming that Khloe’s biological father is actually O.J. Simpson. Kylie Jenner has also jumped into the war in attempt to defend her sister and tell Amber Rose in no uncertain terms to back off her sister.
Since they are such media whores, the Kardashians are also included in this week’s celebrity gossip after an incident during Fashion Week in NYC as Kim and Kanye’s 19-month old daughter, North West, who was in attendance with both parents, reportedly threw a temper tantrum. According to those who witnessed it Kanye and Kim could not get North under control. Kris Jenner took a picture of the child having a temper tantrum and posted it on her Instagram account.

Proving he has nothing better to do, Justin Bieber has once again made this week’s celebrity gossip. During yet another recent appearance on the Ellen Degeneres Show, Justin prank called a fan of his after stating that he and his friends make prank phone calls all the time (which begs the question, did he just turn 21 or 12?)The fan Justin made the prank phone call to happen to be a student at the University of Massachusetts. In a British accent, Justin acted like he was a University faculty member calling the woman over attendance issues. Before the call ended Ellen got on the phone and announced to the girl that she had just been talking to Justin Bieber. She also told the excited fan that she was buying her a plane ticket to fly to California so she could meet Justin Bieber in person.

Liv Tyler had the shock of her life one week ago when she went into labor six weeks before her due date. Though the family had concerns that the early onset of labor would hurt the baby, Liv gave birth to a healthy baby boy.
It is quite possible that actor Charlie Hunnam is kicking himself for having given up the role of Christian Grey in the much hyped about “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie. Dakota Johnson, who starred in the movie, said in a recent interview on David Letterman’s late night talk show that Hunnam must have gotten confused and that she believed he turned down the role due to scheduling conflicts. Since the movie has already earned $265 million at the box office, it is quite possible Hunnam shot himself in the foot.
That’s it for this week’s celebrity gossip. As one of those weeks where the bad news outweighs the good news it will be interesting to see what is to come over the next several months as these celebrities continue to make gossip headlines, good or bad.
