Colin Kaepernick Fires Back At Mike Vick 'Stockholm Syndrome'

7/18/2017 7:47 AM PDT
Breaking News

Colin Kaepernick believes Mike Vick has been "brainwashed" -- and his advice to cut his afro is the result of Stockholm Syndrome.

Here's the deal ... Kaep just posted an Instagram message that's clearly directed at Vick, despite the fact he never mentions Mike's name in the post. 

Vick went on FS1's "Speak for Yourself" on Monday and said he wants Kaep to cut his afro and go with a more clean-cut look to be more "presentable" to NFL teams.

Kaep has remained silent until now ... posting the definition of Stockholmn Syndrome -- "When an abused victim, develops a kind of respect and empathy towards their abuser."

"This syndrome is also called 'traumatic bonding' or 'victim brainwashing.'"

Kaep's post notes that the syndrome was named after a bank robbery -- when victims developed empathy toward their captors.

It seems obvious Kaep views Vick as a victim and the captor is White America.

Julianne Hough My Tropical Honeymoon Is A Whole Lot To Stomach

7/17/2017 8:24 AM PDT

This picture of Julianne Hough proves two things ... her husband, Brooks Laich, is one helluva photographer -- and she's got some of the hardest abs in Hollywood.

Truth is you don't have to be a good photographer when you're shooting Jules in a bikini on what looks like a deserted tropical island with abs that rival The Rock.

The pro dancer and the NHL star got hitched last week in Idaho and jetted off to a tropical destination, and Laich is taking in some of the best views on vacation. Lucky guy.

Mazel.

Ryan Phillippe Thumbs-Up! But My Leg's So Busted

7/17/2017 6:57 AM PDT

9:21 AM -- Ryan just tweeted the injury is the result of a freak accident, NOT an injury he suffered doing a stunt or anywhere near the set of "Shooter."Ryan Phillippe's learning the hard way ... breaking a leg as an actor ain't always a good thing.

The "Shooter" star is laid up in a hospital bed with his right leg bandaged up -- also looks like he has a cast around his ankle. It's unclear what he broke, but based on the hardware fixed on the leg ... we're guessing there was some surgery involved.

No word if it's a work related injury, but Ryan captioned the pic, "I'm going to be ok and I appreciate your concern." A few hours later he changed his tune a bit, tweeting, "this sucks."

More pain meds, please.

Model Winnie Harlow Lashes out at Fat Shaming Allegation ... BUT

7/12/2017 5:30 AM PDT

Model Winnie Harlow is lashing out at media reports she fat shamed the hell out of a passenger on a yacht, because the guy is her uncle and it's a family joke ... but ya could have fooled us.

The former "America's Next Top Model" contestant posted 2 videos and blasted it to her 2.3 million Instagram followers ... showing an unsuspecting shirtless man getting some sun. She overlaid the vid with the text, "Sexy views.. You're welcome."

Winnie -- who has been bullied herself -- also appears to be secretly shooting from a distance, behind some couches.

Harlow -- born with the a skin condition, vitiligo -- has since taken down the videos and fired back at the Daily Mail report ... saying, "That 'random passenger on the boat' is like my uncle and was a family joke. He was actually poking out his tummy for the photo." She calls the outlet "the real bullies for not fact-checking before slandering my name." 

Fair to say ... Winnie certainly had the power to identify the guy in her initial post so her followers wouldn't jump to the logical conclusion that it was fat shaming.

Winne's "uncle" is jumping to her defense.

Kim Kardashian Shoots Down Coke Rumor C'mon Guys, It's Just Sugar!

7/11/2017 11:14 AM PDT

This blows for Kim Kardashian ... she's had to jump on social media to deny a drug rumor based on a video she herself posted.

Kim made a video for her Instagram, and some of her followers noticed two nearly perfect white lines on the counter behind her. One follower flat-out accused her of being caught with cocaine.

Kim tried to put out the fire Tuesday morning, saying ... "That's sugar from our candy mess from dylan's candy shop."

The candy thing checks out. She's in NYC, and Sunday she took North shopping for sweets.

As for the lines? Pixy Stix powder? C'mon ... we were all kids once, right?

Blac Chyna's Side Piece Fires Back at Rob with More Naked Pics

7/6/2017 11:10 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Blac Chyna's side piece, Ferrari, is fighting fire with fire by posting more semi-naked photos of him in bed with Rob's baby mama.

In both pics, Ferrari and Chyna both appear to be naked under the covers in the bed where Rob insists he and Chyna conceived Dream. We're told the pics are supposed to send a message to Rob -- Ferrari ain't broke and banging Blac Chyna ... he's just banging her.

Sources close to Ferrari tell us the photos were actually taken a month ago when Rob had no idea Chyna was hooking up with Ferrari. They are extra insulting since Chyna is wearing both Ferrari's $250k chain and the jewelry that Rob bought her.

We're told Ferrari is retaliating because Rob called him broke on social media ... and Ferrari insists that's just not the case.

Rob Kardashian IG Shuts Him Down for Chyna Nudes ... Moves to Twitter

7/5/2017 1:08 PM PDT
Breaking News

2:18 PM PT -- It appears Twitter has now also removed the nude photos of Chyna from Rob's account.It seems Instagram has had it with Rob Kardashian's revenge porn against Blac Chyna, 'cause they just shut down his page.

Rob tweeted Wednesday ... "Since Instagram shut me down everyone peep my twitter lol" ... and then proceeded to post the same nudes of his ex on Twitter.

As we reported ... Rob's on a social media rampage against Chyna after he allegedly caught her cheating, posting naked pictures of her as well as text messages from her and her alleged side pieces.

It's unlikely Rob will be prosecuted under California's revenge porn law, because prosecutors must show the victim suffered emotional distress ... almost impossible to do since Chyna "liked" the pics on Instagram.

Probably won't be long now 'til @Jack and co. take him down on Twitter too.

Rob Kardashian Posting Nude Chyna Pics Probably Did NOT Violate Revenge Porn Law

7/5/2017 10:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rob Kardashian's revenge against Blac Chyna -- posting pics of her vagina and breasts -- would seem to violate the revenge porn law ... but that doesn't seem to be the case.

As we reported, Rob believed Chyna was cheating on him and he went on the warpath, not only posting the pics but after they were removed ... he reposted them.

In California there's a 2013 law which states ... "A person who intentionally distributes the image of the intimate body part of another ... knowing they'll cause emotional distress" is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by up to 6 months in jail.

You would think it's a textbook case of revenge porn, but there's a rub. Chyna "liked" the pics on Instagram, so it's hard to argue she suffered emotional distress.

What's more ... the law says in order to be convicted there must have been an understanding the images would remain private. "Liking" the pics does not seem consistent with keeping the pics private.

And one more thing ... we're told the would-be victim -- Blac Chyna -- would never go to the cops and file a police report.

Markelle Fultz Forgets '76ers' In 1st Draft Instagram Post

6/23/2017 6:04 AM PDT
Breaking News

Oops.

Seems Markelle Fultz was so excited to publish his first sponsored Instagram post after he was drafted Thursday night, he forgot to fill in the template ... and left out the Philadelphia 76ers

It's not uncommon for sponsors to give stars a template to publish on social media -- Scott Disick accidentally posted the instructions once -- and Fultz made a similar flub at Tissot's expense.

"Excited to head to (City) and join the (team name). @Tissot.us is helping me get started with my (team name) watch. #ThisIsMyTime #NBADraft."

Oops.

Don't worry, Fultz noticed his mistake and quickly filled in the blanks. 

Rookie mistake.

Jeremy Meeks I'm with Bella On Special Deliveries ... You're Welcome, Amber

6/22/2017 9:02 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Jeremy Meeks and Postmates sure know how to market well -- they turned a one-off jokey endorsement from Bella Hadid into a full-on campaign with Amber Rose.

Jeremy got hired by Postmates this week -- at least for Wednesday -- to deliver a plate of deviled eggs from the L.A. restaurant Commissary to Amber.

Jeremy's collab with Postmates isn't a coincidence -- our Postmates sources tell us it's a send-up of Bella Hadid's shout-out to the company back in April. 

Bella posted a shot of herself with photoshopped deviled eggs, saying ... "Postmates is the best!" 

Looks like Postmates is putting all its eggs in one basket.

French Fitness Model Killed by Exploding Whipped Cream Can

6/22/2017 7:54 AM PDT

French fitness blogger Rebecca Burger died after a whipped cream can exploded onto her chest ... according to her family. 

Rebecca, who was popular on Instagram, was killed last weekend in a totally bizarre accident. Her family says the pressurized canister blew up, hit her chest and triggered a heart attack.

The hit reportedly sent her into cardiac arrest, which ultimately led to her death.

The family also posted a pic of a whipped cream canister with a warning about using similar products. They claim "thousands" of defective ones are still in circulation.

Rebecca was 33.

Rev. Al Sharpton If Trump Can Tweet, I Can Selfie ... It's My Nat'l Holiday Right!

EXCLUSIVE

In case you haven't noticed, Al Sharpton's been taking a lot of selfies lately ... and it might be because of Donald Trump.

We got the the civil rights leader Wednesday in NYC, and asked what a lot of people have been wondering about him lately -- what up with the selfie game, Al???

He broke it down for us, and the Prez is only part of it. The other part is about that gym life.

As the Rev says ... back up, haters.

Rob Kardashian's Fake Girlfriend Allegedly Planted Story For Fame

6/5/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rob Kardashian's so-called new girlfriend is playing Internet hoax victim ... but we're told she's the one fueling the rumors.

Rob had a new girl, according to some recent online posts -- 'Basketball Wives' and "Bad Girls Club" vet Mehgan James. But it didn't ring true almost from the get-go ... Rob began posting pics of baby mama Blac Chyna, tweeting that he'd never even met James, much less banged her.

Mehgan then put it out there she had no idea how the rumors started ... re-tweeting Rob's denial.

Now the truth ... Mehgan was the mastermind of the whole thing.

Our sources say Mehgan's "team" contacted a bunch of media outlets planting the story. We're told her goal was SOP ... spread her name, grow her following.

Mehgan's at 806k Instagram followers -- doubling in a week -- so sadly, mission accomplished. 

A little something something since it's Wednesday and all 😏!
