Marvin Gaye’s Family Hasn’t Signed Off On Dr. Dre For Biopic

 

Dr. Dre wants to bring the legend of Marvin Gaye to the big screen, but the late singer’s family wants him to pump the breaks on that.

Marvin Gaye III tells The Blast, “In regards to the announcement that was made in the media on June 18 as it pertains to a biopic about my father, the legendary iconic singer Marvin Gaye, that is being produced by Dr. Dre, I want to say that it was prematurely announced, therefore I denounce these statements.”

He’s referring to multiple reports claiming Gaye’s music had already been secured with Dr. Dre set to executive produce.

Gaye says, “I love and highly respect Dr. Dre, and we are currently in talks about his participation in the film. However, the movie rights have not been granted nor secured at this time from me as an heir. My hope is to have a group of capable and experienced film producers to be involved with the making of a wonderful masterpiece of my dad’s life.”

It’s pretty obvious that the son of the Motown legend ain’t having whatever Dre is trying to serve up.

He makes it clear, “I’m looking for nothing less than excellence in creating a compelling story of Marvin Gaye’s multi-faceted life. We are progressing steadily toward this very goal, and therefore don’t want any premature or false information out there.”

It’s possible both parties will be able to come to an agreement and get the Marvin Gaye biopic in production.

Zara McDermott reveals Adam Collard hasn’t contacted her since leaving the Love Island villa as she reveals truce with Rosie Williams

ZARA McDermott has revealed Adam Collard hasn’t been in touch with her since leaving the Love Island villa last night.

The government adviser, 21, confirmed on Good Morning Britain earlier today there had been radio silence from the Geordie personal trainer, 22, despite him admitting just days ago he still has feelings for her.

Richard Arnold asked Zara if she had heard from Adam since he was booted out of the villa last night.

She replied: “I’ve not heard from him .. I think he needs to pull his finger out a little bit.

“It wasn’t easy watching him kiss someone else on TV so soon after we had separated so I think he has got to pull his finger out a little bit and make some effort.

“The Adam I watch on TV and the Adam I got to know in the villa are two different people. I need to wait to speak to him in person.”

Sat next to her, Rosie Williams, a 26-year-old lawyer, added: “ He has got to prove himself to you, hasn’t he babe.”

The two girls insisted that, despite drama on the show which saw them fight over the Geordie personal trainer, they were fine.

Zara said: “We are absolutely fine.”

Rosie agreed: “We are going to go for dinner and have a little chat.”

The segment got off to a bumpy start when Kate Garraway accidentally fell off a giant bean bag and onto the lap of another former Love Island contestant, Charlie Frederick, live on the show.

The TV star, 51, looked shocked as she ended up getting cosier to the model than she had planned during the show earlier today.

The camera panned across the studio to show Kate sat on a giant bean bag along with co-host Ranvir Singh and Love Island stars Hayley Hughes, Zara and Rosie in addition to Charlie, as well as Richard on an inflatable flamingo.

Kate joked: “When sitting on a giant bean bag, it’s probably best not to actually dress as the bean bag.”


However, as she spoke, the presenter sunk into a gap down the side and onto Charlie.

She grabbed his leg as she struggled to pick herself up off the floor and ended up in a fit of giggles with her head in her hands.

Khloé Kardashian Feels ‘So Loved’ on Mother’s Day After Source Says Family Hasn’t Visited in ‘Weeks’

New mom Khloé Kardashian is being showered with love this Mother’s Day despite being thousands of miles away from her family.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star — who welcomed her first child, a daughter named True, on April 12 — shared photos and videos featuring holiday-appropriate flower arrangements via her Instagram Story Sunday.

“I feel so loved,” she captioned a shot of flowers that spelled out “Mommy.”

She also shared images of gold balloons that spelled out her nickname, “Koko,” and a second “Mommy” flower arrangement.

The social media posts come four days after a source told PEOPLE that Kardashian’s decision to remain living in Cleveland, Ohio — where her boyfriend and True’s father, Tristan Thompson, 27, plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers — in the wake of Thompson’s cheating scandal has “definitely caused friction.”

The family is still not happy with Tristan and they have no desire to spend Mothers’ Day with him,” the insider said.

 

As her first Mother’s Day as a parent approached, Khloé was expected to either stay home with baby daughter True or possibly hit the road with Thompson, who is traveling to Boston for the NBA playoffs, PEOPLE reported Thursday.

“Khloé’s decision to stay with Tristan has definitely caused friction,” the source said. “Her family hasn’t visited her for weeks. It’s been hard for Khloé, but she is doing what she believes is best for her family.”

One day before Mother’s Day, Kardashian shared the first video of True to celebrate one month following her birth.

“Happy one month old, mama,” she said in the video, which shows True looking up at the camera with a flower superimposed over her right cheek. “I love you, pretty girl.”

Kardashian also made sure to give a shout-out to her own mama, Kris Jenner.

“Happy Mother’s Day to the best mommy we could ask for!! Just remember mama ‘you’re doing amazing sweetie!’ You really are!!” she captioned a fabulous photo of the 62-year-old momager. “We couldn’t imagine life without you!! You are the reason for it all!! Thank you for showing us what unconditional love and loyalty is!”

On Twitter over the weekend, the reality star told fans that the baby closely resembled dad Tristan Thompson.

Tristan and True are twins lol it’s crazy,” she responded to a tweet asking which of her parents True looked like more.

But Kardashian hopes that True will have a few features that mirror her mom.

“Everyone tells me they are identical lol it’s wild,” she said of True and Thompson. “Maybe her eyes will stay light and I can get something lol.”

Watch the full special Born Kardashian streaming now on PeopleTV.com, or download the PeopleTV app on your favorite device.

In April, allegations surfaced that Thompson cheated on Khloé throughout her pregnancy. The news broke just days before Khloé gave birth to True on April 12.

“Poor Khloé,” her sister Kim Kardashian West said weeks later during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “Like, I don’t even know how to describe it besides it’s just so f—ed up.”

“We really were rooting for Khloé. And we still are. She’s so strong and she’s doing the best that she can. It’s a really sad situation, all over,” she added.

Iyanla Vanzant Says Torrei Hart ‘Hasn’t Healed, Hasn’t Done Her Work’

Season 4 of “Iyanla: Fix My Life” resumes September 30 and this time around her focus is largely on Black men.

Incarceration, sexual abuse, and infidelity are just some of the issues Iyanla Vanzant will tackle with various groups of men throughout the season, Madame Noire reports.

When it comes to infidelity, Vanzant says:

“I have a different concept of cheating than most people,” she explained during a phone interview with Madame Noire. “Most people think you cheated on me, you hurt my feelings, it’s something they get crazy about. For me, cheating is a broken agreement; it’s a betrayal of trust; it’s a violation of self-value.”

Adding, “For me, when a person in a relationship commits infidelity, it’s telling me something about that person. It doesn’t have anything to do with me. My question becomes, is this the kind of person I want to be with — a man who doesn’t honor his word, who doesn’t keep his agreements, who breaks his commitments, and who doesn’t value my trust? Is that the kind of person I want to be with?”

During the interview, she also touched on Kevin Hart’s marital drama and how his ex-wife Torrei never properly “healed,” which is why she has taken to social media to lash out.

“Talking about your hurt is a very valuable process toward healing; talking publicly about your hurt in a way that damages someone else, that’s a different story,” Vanzant said when asked her thoughts on the matter. “I always say that the only thing that can destroy a relationship is within the relationship. Relationships are never destroyed from the outside in; they’re always destroyed from the inside out. Ex-Mrs. Hart obviously hasn’t healed; she hasn’t done her work.”

Vanzant shared the one question she’d ask Torrei for going public with her past infidelity issues with Kevin.

Instagram Photo

 

“What is her intention for sharing this information and is that about him or is that about her?”

As far as Kevin is concerned, Vanzant says: “He said it, you got a target on your back brother, and you need to be a demonstration and a model for who you are as a Black man.”

Vanzant said if given the opportunity, she’d ask Kevin this very serious question:

“This is what I ask men who cheat: Would you want somebody to do this to your mother or your daughter? And if you don’t want somebody to do it to your mother or your daughter, don’t do it, because the sins of the father befall the children. How would he feel if his daughter’s husband did this? Many men can’t speak to their son-in-laws about [cheating] because they do it. They deliver the same grief upon their daughters as they did upon their mothers, so that’s what I would offer all men, Kevin included.”

“Iyanla: Fix My Life” returns September 30 at 9:00 pm ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.

Nursing Mom Kerry Washington Loves Popcorn But Hasn’t Been Drinking Wine Lately: ‘I’m Not into the Pump and Dump’

While her onscreen persona famously imbibes in fine wines, Kerry Washington has cut back on consuming the beverage while she focuses on breastfeeding her family’s latest addition.

“I haven’t been drinking a lot of wine because I’ve been with child and nursing,” Washington told reporters after the Scandal panel at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena, California, on Tuesday.

She added, “I’m not really into the pump and dump.”

Washington, 39, welcomed her son Caleb Kelechi just three months ago. She and former NFL cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha are also parents to daughter Isabelle Amarachi, 2.

There is one treat that Washington can’t resist, however: “I love popcorn.”

“I am a big popcorn lover,” she revealed. “Popcorn is big in my house. We have popcorn for breakfast, which may not be the best parenting, but it’s fun.”

On the red carpet at the Golden Globes on Sunday, Washington said Isabelle is doing “great” at being a big sister, telling Extra, “She’s enjoying it.”

“It’s good. I’m an only child, but my husband has many siblings, so he can walk her through it,” she added.
