Kim K. and Tyson get into it on social media

Gossip sites were rumbling about the back-and-forth between Kim Kardashian and model Tyson Beckford on Instagram. "Sorry I don't care for it personally," Beckford commented on a photo of Kim. "She is not real. The doctor (messed) up on her right hip," he said, suggesting that Kardashian got her physique through surgery, something that she has denied. She clapped back, writing, "Sis, we all know why you don't care for it." Some folks on Twitter called out Kardashian and said her remarks were homophobic. Beckford also said that women who have plastic surgery aren't for him and that he's "always gonna pick a Beyoncé over anyone else." 

Tiffany Haddish said she was raped as a teen by police cadet

In an cover story for Glamour Magazine released this week, comedian and actor Tiffany Haddish revealed that she was raped when she was 17 by a police cadet. Haddish said she reported the incident at the time, but doesn't know if that was enough. “That whole experience put me in such a messed-up place for a long time, and I ended up going to counseling,” she told the magazine. In the interview Haddish also said her goal is to be on the Forbes list of richest celebrities like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. "Not for the money," she said. "but to be an example to other foster youths that it don’t matter how low from the bottom you are, you can always rise to the top if you believe in yourself."
