Fyre Festival Cofounder Billy McFarland Admits Trouble from the Start (VIDEO)

Fyre Festival Cofounder We Were Screwed from Day 1 … But We’ll Make Up for It!!

EXCLUSIVE

The cofounder of Ja Rule‘s disastrous Fyre Festival has lots of excuses as to why the event advertised as a luxury experience turned into what looked like a refugee camp.

Billy McFarland tells us his team was in over their heads from the get-go, but things were exacerbated by a mega-storm days before the festival.

Check out the video and see if you buy it. He explains the tents that were ready to go were blown over by the storm, and their only option was pitching disaster relief tents.

What doesn’t make sense … why was the gourmet food 2 slices of bread and 2 slices of cheese?

He does promise a make-good. Refunds for all and a free concert next year.

Ja Rule Apologizes for Fyre Festival Disaster, Says it was NOT a Scam

Ja Rule Apologizes for Fyre Disaster IT WASN’T A SCAM!!!

Breaking News

Ja Rule‘s broken his silence hours after his Fyre Festival was called off following a disastrous start … and he insists it was NOT a scam.

The rapper said Friday his main priority is “getting everyone [off] the island SAFE” and he’ll elaborate on the calamity that unfolded just days before his first ever festival kicked off at the Bahamas this weekend.

Ja Rule also said, “I’m heartbroken … it was NOT A SCAM as everyone is reporting. I don’t know how everything went so left but I’m working to make it right by making sure everyone is refunded.”

The rapper went on to say he apologizes but says, “this is NOT MY FAULT,” but is taking responsibility.

A U.S. State Department official tells us they’re monitoring the situation and “stand ready to provide appropriate consular services to any U.S. citizens in need.”

As we reported … Ja’s festival looked more like a refugee camp and ticket holders who paid between $1k to $12k walked into living accommodations which looked like they had been used in previous disaster relief efforts, empty beer stands and “gourmet food” that turned out to be 2 pieces of bread and 2 pieces of cheese.

Exclusive Details

Aaron Rodgers was spotted at an L.A. golf course Thursday with a very attractive blonde — and we’re told it’s “Baywatch” actress Kelly Rohrbach.

Just a few weeks after reports surfaced he split with longtime girlfriend Olivia Munn — the Green Bay Packers quarterback hit up the Westchester Golf Course. 

Witnesses tell us Rodgers and Rohrbach appeared to be holding hands and looked flirty — until they noticed people watching them.

Both Rodgers and Rohrbach are avid golfers — so maybe it was just a platonic trip to the links.

Then again, maybe not.

Ja Rule’s Fyre Festival Promised Luxury But Delivered Refugee Camp Conditions (PHOTO GALLERY + VIDEOS)

Ja Rule’s Fyre Festival Promises of Luxury Delivers Refugee Camp Digs

4/28/2017 7:03 AM PDT

7:20 AM PT — The party’s officially over.

Festival organizers just announced … “Due to circumstances beyond our control, we must postpone this experience. We are working tirelessly to ensure each guest leaves the island safely and ask for everyone’s patience and cooperation as we continue to provide ongoing updates via email and our official social media channels.”

They added … refund information will be coming.Ja Rule‘s Fyre Festival promised luxury but delivered what looks like a refugee camp. 

The festival — the first annual — kicked off Thursday in the Bahamas, but it’s a disaster of epic proportions. Ticket holders paid between $1k and $12k, and what they got was unreal.

— Living accommodations were used in previous disaster relief efforts

— The beer stands were empty and the “gourmet food” turned out to be 2 pieces of bread and 2 pieces of cheese

— The kitchen looks like what you would get when you’re camping in the wilderness

— Security lockers had no locks

Fyre’s video pimping the festival showcased Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin and Emily Ratajkowski on a yacht as a way to lure fans to a luxurious paradise. Not exactly as advertised.

Blink 182 pulled out Thursday … saying they’re “not confident that we would have what we need to give you the quality of performances we always give fans.”

Pretty clear Ja Rule didn’t see this coming — he posted a pic 2 days ago just before boarding a private jet headed for the festival.

Fyre released a statement, acknowledging “things got off to an unexpected start at day one.”  

Nicely understated.

Katy Perry Blasted for New Single with Migos Over Homophobic Remarks

Katy Perry Blasted for Collab with Migos Over Homophobic Remarks

4/27/2017 12:45 PM PDT

Katy Perry‘s getting slammed for her new single before anyone’s even heard it, because people aren’t cool with her co-stars on the track — Migos.

Perry’s new song, “Bon Appetit,” will be released Friday, but the backlash has already begun when the cover art revealed she collaborated with the rappers. Fans are pissed because they’ve made homophobic and misogynistic remarks … notably, when an ATL rapper came out as gay, Quavo said, “This world is not right.”

Now, Perry’s getting heat  … especially after accepting a National Equality Award last month at the Human Rights Campaign gala.

This isn’t a first for the pop singer … she’s also been criticized by the LGBT community for her songs “I Kissed a Girl” and “Ur So Gay.”

We reached out to Katy’s people … so far no word back.

Scott Baio Says Erin Moran Drug Backlash Really About His Trump Support (VIDEO)

Scott Baio Backlash Over My Erin/Drugs Comments Fueled Purely by Trump Haters

4/25/2017 2:28 PM PDT

EXCLUSIVE

Scott Baio thinks much of the backlash he’s gotten for his comments about Erin Moran‘s drug issues is driven by his ties to Donald Trump.

Scott told us liberals have been attacking him for linking his former co-star’s death to a drug overdose during a radio interview — but says his haters’ political biases are seeping through.

The attacks don’t appear to faze him though. Although it turns out Erin died from cancer — and not substance abuse problems — he says it doesn’t change his strong feelings about the dangers of drugs.

Scott Baio Regrets Erin Moran Drug Comments, Didn’t Know She Died from Cancer

Scott Baio on Erin Moran I Wouldn’t Have Raised Drug Issues If I Knew About the Cancer

EXCLUSIVE

Scott Baio feels terrible for ripping his co-star, Erin Moran, for her drug use and says he never would have done it if he’d known she was battling cancer.

Scott tells TMZ he was wrong to insinuate Erin — his “Happy Days” and “Joanie Loves Chachi” co-star — had died from drug-related problems. He went pretty hard on her during a radio interview Monday morning.

He tells us he went to bed Sunday reading reports she’d possibly died of a heroin overdose, and went into the interview with that in mind. He was upset he’d lost Erin to drugs after she wrestled with substance abuse for years.

However, hours after he went off the air … officials in Indiana announced Erin had likely died from complications of stage 4 cancer. Scott says if he had known, he would’ve kept his mouth shut.

He tells us Erin never disclosed her diagnosis to him — even after his wife, Renee, spoke to her just last month. He adds … Renee has battled cancer herself several times, so losing Erin this way hits close to home.

EXCLUSIVE

David Spade and Naya Rivera ain’t a one-off — they were hanging again, this time on land, and everything about her outfit says he’ll be back for more.

The couple did dinner at Nobu in Malibu Thursday night. It’s the first time we’ve seen them together since the shots of them snuggling in a pool a few weeks ago in Hawaii.

Since then David’s tried to blow off the relationship, telling us it’s NBD. However, Naya’s dress at dinner — cut wayyy up to there — screams it is. Or at least it was that night.

Plus, let’s not forget David’s ex Heather Locklear‘s confirmation … of the BIG deal.

50 Cent Punch Victim Lawyers Up For Lawsuit

EXCLUSIVE

The woman 50 Cent punched square in the chest is now going full bore against the rapper … lawyering up for a lawsuit.

Donnetta Derr has a law firm behind her that will sue 50 early next week. She’ll also sue The Lox, with whom Fiddy performed, and the venue, Baltimore Soundstage.

TMZ broke the story … 50 was performing last week when the woman grabbed his arm and pulled him off stage. 50 retaliated with a vicious punch.

Donnetta later went onstage and twerked … leading people to believe the beef was squashed … nope.

Attorney Warren Brown tells us Donnetta went to the hospital the next day and hired him Monday.

Brown calls 50’s conduct “cowardly.”
