  • Porsche Blames Paul Walker Crash on Roger Rodas

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 15 mins ago

    Porsche has responded to the suit filed against them in the Paul Walker crash.

    Lawyers for the company blame Roger Rodas, the driver of the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT that was carrying the late actor, for the fatal accident.

    Earlier this month Roger's widow, Kristine Rodas, filed suit against Porsche Cars North America, citing negligence as the cause of death of her husband and Walker. She is also suing for product liability and wrongful death.

    The Fast and the Furious star, 40, ultimately died of "combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries." Rodas's cause of death was "multiple traumatic injuries."

    "Roger Rodas's death, and all other injuries or damages claimed, were the result of Roger Rodas's own comparative fault," lawyers for Porsche said in a response filling on Monday, adding Rodas "chose to conduct himself in a manner so as to expose himself and others to such perils, dangers and risks."

  • Paris Hilton Insists She's Not as Dumb as You Think She Is

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 44 mins ago

    When you think of Paris Hilton, you probably think of a vacuous ditz uttering her catchphrase, "that's hot." But the heiress — who's now 34 — has some words for all of you who think she's an airhead. For starters, she says she's not so dumb (but she gets why you thought she was).

    "I was playing a character on   The Simple Life,   so I don't blame people for thinking I was ditzy," Hilton told DuJour magazine. "People assumed that’s who I really was. Now they meet me and realize I'm completely different. But it doesn't bother me that people thought I was dumb. Playing that character made life easier — I do have a certain amount of shyness, which I'm sure is a surprise to people. And I've never cared what people think about me — I know the truth. I've always known what I was capable of."

    But for all of her claims, are people really ready to embrace this supposedly smarter version of Hilton? And moreover, will the public eye ever perceive her as actually smart?

  • FKA Twigs and Robert Pattinson Are Engaged... According to T-Pain

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 1 hr ago

    T-Pain may have just blown up FKA twigs and Robert Pattinson's spot.

    The rapper gave an interview to New York magazine's Vulture in which he claimed the lovebirds are engaged to be married. After T-Pain named twigs as an inspiration, interviewer Dee Lockett asked if she would be on his next album. His answer is... revealing.

    In a follow-up question, T-Pain also confirmed that he has a dorky-as-hell nickname for Pattinson.

    Oops! T-Pain's probably going to be getting an angry text message or two from ol' Patty here in 3... 2... 1...

    The two have been linked since they were photographed together in September. They were introduced by mutual friends Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge. While neither has spoken much about each other publicly, she told The Guardian in December that dating the former Edward Cullen was something of a head trip for her.

    Yahoo has reached out to reps for both for comment.

  • Floss Up! Beyoncé Posts an Adorable Video with Blue Ivy

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 3 hrs ago

    Consider this your daily PSA for dental hygiene as well as your daily dose of cuteness. Beyonc é posted a video on Instagram of herself flossing her teeth with Blue Ivy. Blue is holding up a peace sign, and she looks like she's picking up some cues from her mama.

    Just try to stop watching that.

    If you've ever slacked off on caring for your teeth, then this should be a good wake-up call. (If you floss, you're that much closer to being like Beyoncé!)

    This is just the latest installment in cute Blue Ivy moments on Beyonc é 's Instagram. Back in February, she posted a bee-covered photo of herself and 3-year-old Blue. It didn't pack a dental health message, but it was pretty cute, nonetheless:

    These two are quite the mother-daughter pair, posing for adorable selfies together, and reminding the Bey-hive to keep their chompers in tip-top shape.


  • Chris Rock Continues to Document Police Harassment

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 5 hrs ago

    The Top Five filmmaker was recently pulled over for the third time in less than two months, capturing the latest incident on social media.

    "Stopped by the cops again wish me luck," he captioned the selfie with the familiar blue lights flashing in the background.

    The 50-year-old comedian first started documenting the traffic stops on Feb. 13: "Just got pulled over by the cops wish me luck."

    And again on Feb. 27: "I'm not even driving stop by the cops again."

    This is hardly the first time Rock has broached the topic of racial profiling.

    In an episode of Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, the two actors were pulled over while speeding in an orange Lamborghini. Rock joked to Seinfeld, "Now here's the crazy thing, if you weren't here, I'd be scared."

    "Were you worried, Chris?" Jerry asked.

    "I was worried the whole time," he joked. "I'm still worried."

    In fact, Chris had previously used that situation as the fodder for one of his best bits from The Chris Rock Show: "How Not to Get Your Ass Kicked By the Police."

  • Milla Jovovich Gives Birth to Baby Girl

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 5 hrs ago

    Early Wednesday morning, Milla Jovovich and her husband, writer/director Paul W. S. Anderson, welcomed their second child, a baby girl named Dashiel Edon Anderson. The new addition was fashionably late, too — Jovovich's due date was March 29.

    "Milla delivered her second daughter Dashiel Edon early this morning. Both Mama and Baby are doing great.," her rep told The Insider With Yahoo . "Milla, her husband Paul, and big sister Ever are overjoyed to welcome Dashiel into the their family and are all spending some quality bonding time together."

    Little Dashiel joins 7-year-old Ever Garbo Anderson, who, apparently, is as excited for the new addition as her proud parents and more than willing to share her wardrobe with her younger sister.

    "[Ever] keeps saying, 'Don't get her anything new. She can wear all my clothes," Jovovich revealed recently with a laugh. "She's so economical."

  • Lorde and Her Boyfriend Have Weathered 'Sandstorms' for 2 Years

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 6 hrs ago

    Goth songstress Lorde recently celebrated a big day: her two-year anniversary with her boyfriend, photographer James Lowe. On Tuesday, she posteda sweet pic on Instagram as a tribute.

    " two years, and sandstorms, and the stars haven't left my eyes," the 18-year-old singer wrote.

    Lorde was pretty spot-on with her poetic caption. The couple has faced some major "sandstorms," so to speak — and not just the typical ones that come with young love. And let's face it: trying to weather the hormonal hardships of young adulthood is enough to break many young relationships.

    Throw in the fame factor, and you've got what could be a very complicated equation. But judging by Lorde's frequent sweet Instagram pics of herself and Lowe, 25, you'd never know that they had been the victims of major trolling in the earlier days of their romance.

    Yeah, these two look like they're gonna be fine for the next couple years, too.

  • Giuliana Rancic Says She and Bill Lost Their Last Embryo

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 6 hrs ago

    The fertility struggles of Giuliana and Bill Rancic are a long and well-documented saga. Sadly, it continues. The couple was recently dealt another devastating blow when they lost their last viable embryo to a miscarriage.

    Giuliana told People that she and Bill learned on New Year's Eve that the surrogate who was carrying their third and final embryo suffered a miscarriage.

    "It was painful," Rancic told the magazine. "We were so optimistic with this last embryo. We thought, 'This is definitely going to work. This is our last shot.'"

    Giuliana chose to freeze four embryos when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011. The first resulted in a successful pregnancy; Bill and Giuliana's son Duke was born via surrogate in 2012. Two more eggs were implanted in a surrogate in 2014, but she miscarried. Rancic calls this latest loss "the toughest blow."

    The reason for her thin appearance, she claims, is those cancer-suppressing meds.

  • Avril Lavigne Reveals Lyme Disease Diagnosis: 'I Thought I Was Dying'

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 8 hrs ago

    Teen punk Avril Lavigne has been notably out of the spotlight for several months and now she's explaining why: she's been struggling with Lyme disease.

    In an exclusive interview with People magazine, Lavigne says things took a turn for the worse last October while she was in Las Vegas to celebrate her 30th birthday. It was shortly after that trip that she was diagnosed with Lyme disease, a disease spread by ticks which can cause symptoms ranging from fever and fatigue to joint pain, neck stiffness, and memory loss.

    "I felt like I couldn't breathe, I couldn't talk and I couldn't move," Lavigne says. "I thought I was dying."

    "There were definitely times I couldn't shower for a full week because I could barely stand," she says. "It felt like having all your life sucked out of you."

  • The 7 Best Pranks George Clooney Has Pulled on His Famous Friends, Plus 1 He Pulled on the Press

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 19 hrs ago

    It takes a special kind of man to be a movie star capture the heart of a brilliant woman convince a friend his cat is dying of constipation. But George Clooney is exactly that kind of man. Over the last two decades, the actor has made headlines not only for his performances, but also for his pranks. In honor of April Fools' Day, we've rounded up some of the best and brightest from the Clooney archives in hopes that they might inspire the next generation of prank legends. (Amal Alamuddin, we're looking at you!)

    1. That time he made Richard Kind think his cat hadn't had a bowel movement in weeks.

    2. That time he gave Richard Kind a hideous painting he found in the trash and passed it off as his own work.

    Poor Richard just can't get a break. Just three years after the infamous kitty litter prank, George's longtime pal got nailed again. It all started when Clooney found an awful, gigantic painting in a random pile of trash, took it home, framed it, and signed it as his own. Then for months, he kept telling Richard he was taking art classes. On Richard's 40 th birthday, George gifted his friend the painting, which Kind dutifully hung in his living room.
