How you gon’ hate from outside the wedding? You can’t even get in! Kim and Kanye showed up late to Chance the Rapper and Kirsten Corley’s wedding to find it was standing room only. Talk about embarrassing.
With a guest list that included Fred Hammond, Kirk Franklin, and other gospel staples, it’s strange that Kim or Kanye shared their company. We’re not sure if they decided at the last minute to go, or if it was a purposeful gaffe, but the Kardashian-Wests were unfashionably late to the wedding. Arriving after all the guests had been seated, Kim and Kanye strolled down the walkway only to watch the nuptials from the nosebleed section.
Wearing a garishly colorful 1990s Versace gown, Kim appeared annoyed as she stroked her tangled weave while watching Chance and Kirsten exchange vows. Still, their tardiness didn’t keep Kanye from enjoying himself. Kanye sipped champagne, danced, and posed for photos with the newlyweds at the Pelican Hill Resort in California.
Childhood Sweethearts Turned Newlyweds
In a star-studded event, Chance and his bride Kirsten Corley, were wed over the weekend after 16 years of friendship. Before the private ceremony, Chance shared the story of how he met Kirsten when they were just 9 years old.
Back in 2003, Chance’s mother worked as a real estate agent for a black owned franchise called Re/Max. One night, he, along with his father and brother, accompanied his mother to an office party. An announcement was made that there would be a special performance and then, boom, out comes Kirsten and two of her friends. The trio lip-synced to Destiny’s Child’s ‘Independent Women’, while performing a routine and Chance locked eyes with Kirsten.
Encouraged to step forward and dance along by his father, Chance said it just wasn’t the time. Instead he “shook [his] head with anxiety, moved to the back of the crowd” without introducing himself. Fast forward 16 years and one precious child later, Chance and Kirsten were wed in front of 150 family members and close friends.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Share News of the Loss of Their Unborn Child
Early Thursday morning Chrissy Teigen and John Legend let the world know of the loss of their unborn child. In a heartfelt and heartbreaking post to social media, Teigen described her and husband John Legend’s “deep pain you only hear about.” She went on to talk about how the couple does not typically name their children “until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before (they) leave the hospital,” but somehow they fell on the name “Jack.”
The heartbreaking news comes just days after first being admitted to the hospital for what she described as heavy bleeding. However, two days ago, she assured fans that both her and baby were healthy and doing well. Teigen, no stranger to social media, continued to engage her following, giving brief updates along the way, when shortly after midnight she shared photos of her and John in the hospital cradling their newborn in the immediate aftermath.
While her husband has remained largely unproblematic and scandal-free, Teigen has been the frequent target of scathing criticism – much of which is completely valid. From her ridiculing Black hair, to her seemingly mocking intimate partner violence when she referenced Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez’s incident, Chrissy Teigen has been the focus of such harsh vitriol that she has threatened to quit social media altogether on multiple occasions. Sharing such personal news with the world may come as a surprise to many.
Overwhelmingly, however, the internet’s response has been positive and embracing. Celebrities and non-celebs alike have offered words of support to the couple as they go through this difficult time. See both the model’s post and the heartwarming responses to it below.

Actor Chadwick Boseman, best known for his role as King T’Challa in the box office smash “Black Panther” passed away from colon cancer Friday.
The actor was first diagnosed with stage 3 cancer in 2016, but remained active in his career with much of his work being released post-diagnosis. A statement from his family confirmed that he continued to work despite his cancer progressing, befitting a man who brought America’s first Black superhero to the silver screen.

The tributes continue to flood in as news of his passing continues to ripple through. Read the official statement from his family below.
“It is with immeasurable grief that we confirm the passing of Chadwick Boseman.
Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last 4 years as it progressed to stage IV.
A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much. From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.
It was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther.
He died in his home, with his wife and family by his side.
The family thanks you for your love and prayers, and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time.”
When White Privilege Isn’t Enough to Get Into USC: Lori Loughlin Sentenced to 2 Months in Prison
Actress Lori Loughlin was sentenced to two months in prison today for her role in the college admissions scandal. If you haven’t followed the 10-month-long saga, Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, a fashion designer, plead not guilty to a bribery charge in a college admission scam back in 2019… Because white privilege just isn’t what it used to be.
The two later plead guilty to paying William Rick Singer, the mastermind, $500,000 to guarantee their two daughters a spot at the University of South Carolina.
Loughlin’s sentence came several hours after her husband’s five-month sentence. According to the US Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, Giannulli’s five-month sentence also came with a whopping fine of $250,000 and 250 hours of community service.
“[Giannulli] engaged more frequently with Singer, directed the bribe payments to USC and Singer, and personally confronted his daughter’s high school counselor to prevent the scheme from being discovered, brazenly lying about his daughter’s athletic abilities,” US Attorney Andrew Lelling of Massachusetts said in the memo released on Tuesday. “Loughlin took a less active role, but was nonetheless fully complicit, eagerly enlisting Singer for a second time for her younger daughter, and coaching her daughter not to ‘say too much’ to her high school’s legitimate college counselor, lest he caught on to their [fradulent activity].
