We hear there was some backstage drama at the 2019 Golden Globes between “Black Panther” stars Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan. Rumor has it, the actors got into a physical altercation before the Golden Globes when the two were in a staging area getting ready to walk the red carpet with their”Black Panther” co-stars Danai Gurira and Lupita Nyong’o. A source said, “It wasn’t an argument about anything particular, it’s been building up for some time,” adding, “Chadwick and Michael don’t really like each other. Chad is very arrogant and Michael doesn’t like that.” It all came to a point when Michael “put hands” on Chadwick. Security quickly stepped in before it got worse, but the two wouldn’t be around each other for the rest of the night, which would also explain why Chadwick didn’t join the rest of his co-stars on the red carpet. Interestingly, before the two actors shared the screen together in “Black Panther,” Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan both played the same character on “All My Children.” Chadwick was hired in 2003 to play the role of Reggie Porter but was allegedly fired after speaking his mind to producers about his concerns that the character, a teen gang member, was a racial stereotype. Even though producers did take some of his suggestions, they also fired him, replacing the actor with Michael, who was then 16, ten years younger than Chadwick. Chadwick said, “They said, ‘You are too much trouble,’ but they took my suggestions, or some of them. And for me, honestly, that’s what this is about.”
Yesterday, we reported that fans watching the 2019 Golden Globes pre-show on Facebook Live thought Chrissy Metz was caught on a hot mic calling Alison Brie a “b****.” She called the story “completely fabricated,” and now one of the co-hosts from the interview has come to her defense. AJ Gibson has released a statement defending Chrissy, saying she actually said “babe,” not the other B-word. He calls Chrissy an “absolute sweetheart” and added that he “can’t imagine” she would want to put down a fellow actress “on the heels” of the Time’s Up movement. “It’s more important than ever that we ALL support and love on one another,” he said, explaining, “From my position on that stage, a few feet from Chrissy, it was clear to me that she had nothing but love for Alison.”
Kevin Spacey spent about ten minutes in a Massachusetts courtroom yesterday to answer to a felony charge of indecent assault and battery stemming from a groping allegation from an 18-year-old boy. His lawyer entered a not guilty plea on his behalf. Judge Thomas Barrett ordered the actor not to contact the alleged victim. He is due back in court on March 4th. Meanwhile, Kevin couldn’t even make it back to his home before he got into more trouble with the law. He was driving home from Reagan National Airport in Washington, DC when he got pulled over for speeding. Fortunately for him, the cop let him off with just a warning.
