With a drastic rise in technology and smart phones, mobile gaming apps are at an all time high and the rich and famous have taken note. A number of these celebrities are jumping on the bandwagon and lining their pockets at the same time by releasing their very own mobile gaming app and others were ahead of the curve.
Kim Kardashian is married to one of the richest rappers in the game, but she certainly doesn’t need Kanye West’s money. The reality TV star has made a fortune alone with her gaming app, “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood.” The app was such a hit that it raked in $1.6 million in the first five days of its release. Free to download, “Hollywood” makes its money through in-app purchases. Players are encouraged to purchase “Koins,” which are used to buy clothes and change how the consumers chosen avatar looks. Many predicted that the app would pull in $200 million in its first year.
When news broke that Kanye West proposed to live-in girlfriend Kim Kardashian, folks knew that it was only a matter of time before footage of the proposal found its way to the Internet. Just like clockwork, not even 48 hours later, media outlets lit up like wildfire with the proposal video.
YouTube co-founder, Chad Hurley, has been credited with leaking the video. Now, as promised, Kim and Kanye are suing. In court documents obtained by TMZ, the couple accuses Chad of leaking the video in some calculating scheme to promote his latest tech venture, MixBit. Since Chad sold YouTube to Google for $1.65 billion, Kimye accuse him of using their proposal in an attempt to find his “second act” since the sale of YouTube.
Court documents also claim that Chad was not even invited to Kim’s birthday bash at AT&T Park and that he somehow manipulated his way in. According to Kim and Kanye, they allowed him to stay, but required him to sign a confidentiality agreement, which they even requested that he take a picture with.
“Hurley proceeded to try to turn the event into one starring himself, broadcasting the images he knew were the exclusive property rights of someone else,” the lawsuit reads.
The suit goes on to say that not only did Chad post the engagement video to MixBit, but he also issued a press release announcing the footage that he recovered. The bride and groom-to-be are suing for unspecified damages. They say that footage of the proposal was supposed to air on cable television—something most of us were already aware of.
We’ll definitely keep you posted as details surrounding this case continue to unfold.
Anybody who’s ever run into an ex unexpectedly knows how awkward the whole thing can be. Whether it’s at a wedding, a club, a family event or just at the supermarket, seeing a former flame always seems to involve increased heart rates, sunken stomach feelings and fake pleasantries. And with celebs it’s surely no different. Although they typically hire schedulers and publicists to ensure that they never have to face or even discuss an ex, some situations are just unavoidable – like these 15 awkward, celebrity ex encounters.
When Drake Accepted The BET Award For “What’s My Name”
Possibly the most awkward BET Awards moment ever – and you know there have been plenty – was when the winner for the Coca-Cola Viewer’s Choice Award was first announced as Chris Brown – then as Rihanna – and then as Drake, who appeared onstage to accept the award. Clearly there was no best way to handle this situation, but Drizzy’s simple comment of “Well, that was awkward” probably summed it up most accurately.
There are some celebrity couples that we all seem to love like Barack and Michelle and Denzel and Pauletta – and then there are those celeb couples that we universally kind of just hate. You already know this list is about the latter, so click on to find out which pairs annoy us the most!
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian
If there were an annoying couple award it would have to go to this pair right here. Kanye and Kim apart were already skating on our last nerves with their crazy gimmicks, statements and PR stunts, but together, the KimYe annoying factor is just way too much.
Have you ever thought that some men were prettier than their women, and if not prettier than at least more high maintenance? It might be their grooming or their mannerisms, or maybe even something you just can’t quite put your finger on, but trust me, you know the feeling.
Before you get to clicking I should probably say that there’s real no concrete evidence that any of these men are prima donnas, but based on appearances – which are sometimes telling and sometimes not – these fifteen celebs seem to fit the bill. Of course “pretty” is a matter of opinion here, but feel free to throw yours about these pretty boy floyds in the comments section below.
Prince and his girlfriend Bria Valente may look a lot alike – thanks to their surgeon I suppose, but I dare say Prince is the prettier of the two, and considering his eccentricity – probably the more high maintenance of the two as well. Prince must not only be barbered to perfection, but also made up to perfection, hair styled to perfection, and clothed to perfection. And perfection ain’t easy, or quick.
I can’t tell if Kanye is throwing more shade on Kris Humphries, much like he did in the ‘Theraflu’ song when he acted as though he could have gotten his boy Jay-Z to throw him off the Nets, or if he’s making light of the spectacle that is his relationship with Kim Kardashian with this tweet he sent out yesterday:
The couple seems to have reached a (somewhat pathetic) milestone in their relationship, 73 days as a couple, which is only newsworthy (term used loosely) because it rivals the 72-day marriage the reality star shared with the New Jersey Nets player. Technically though, the couple is actually still married, though you wouldn’t know it from the way Kim’s been riding, I mean watching, the Kanye West throne, and Kris’s own alleged baby mama drama with an ex-girlfriend.
All I know is if this thing doesn’t work out, Kanye is going to look like an even bigger you know what for taking these shots at Kris and expecting everyone to be in love with Kim like he supposedly is. But sadly, 73 days is longer than most celebrity hook ups last so maybe they are a match made in coordinated clothing heaven. What do you think?
