Post naked photos of a KarJenner and people will comment. Nude photos of Kendall Jenner leaked online, and the Twittersphere had something to say about it. Photographer Russell James reportedly shot the pictures for an upcoming book, “Angels,” a book featuring some of the Victoria’s Secret Angels. A few of the shots show the supermodel going Lady Godiva on a horse, climbing a tree, lounging in a pool, and running on the beach. It’s not clear how the pictures leaked before the photo series release date, but here are some of the reactions via Twitter; “skeleton,” “built like a boy,” “so skinny,”

Sarah Jessica Parker is being sued by Kat Florence Designs. They’re accusing the “Sex & The City” of not returning jewelry she borrowed in 2016 for a photo shoot. Afterwards, she asked if she could keep some of the items, including earrings worth over $40,000 and a $27,000 ring, you know, just borrow them for a few months. They agreed to a two-month period, but she has yet to give them back. The company now wants SJP to pay for the items to the tune of $150,000. But Sarah’s lawyer, Ira Schreck, said, “This is just plain false. SJP was under contract to Kat Florence and was asked to keep the jewelry so that she could wear it on red carpets and other events when appropriate. Sarah Jessica Parker is as honest and trustworthy a person as anyone I have ever met. She has never and would never hold onto anything belonging to someone else. In fact, she has been asking ever since Kat Florence wrongfully stopped paying her to have the pieces returned, but Kat Florence didn’t seem terribly interested in getting them back.” Hmm….

We told you before that Angelina Jolie is dead set on getting sole custody of her kids with ex Brad Pitt. Although a judge already temporarily granted Brad more time with the kids, sources reveal Angie would do anything to keep them on her side, including spoiling them into choosing her over Brad. Word is her oldest, Maddox and Pax, are already on board, it’s just up to the four youngest now, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Vivienne and Knox, to let the judge know they want to live with mom. So, she’s pulling out all the stops. A source said, “If they ask to go shopping, they go shopping. If they want to go hiking, they go hiking. She’s trying her hardest to spoil them.” As the heated custody battle continues, Angie is already seeing some positive results. Her relationship with Maddox is reportedly better than ever. The source said, “They’ve always had a special connection, but since the divorce their bond has only strengthened. They really rely on each other.” Heck, she working it so hard even MY kids want to go live with her.
