Marc Jacobs, Char Defrancesco We Got Hitched!!! … In Front of Gaggle of Celebs
4/7/2019 7:41 AM PDT
Marc Jacobs got hitched to his longtime partner Saturday night, and a ton of celebs were on hand to celebrate.
The 55-year-old fashion designer tied the knot in NYC with Char Defrancesco … a former model who is now a candlemaker.
The event was a spectacle … Marc and Char arrived at The Grill, where they had their lavish wedding reception, in matching crushed green velvet coats.
As for the guest list … check it out — Anna Wintour, Naomi Campbell, Bella and Gigi Hadid, Bette Midler, Kate Moss, Lil Kim, Rita Ora, Kaia Gerber and Emily Ratajkowski to name a few. Guests scored customized vape pens as party favors.
When he proposed, he organized a flash mob of dancers to perform Prince’s song, “Kiss.”
Marc was smart … he got married the day after Char’s 37th birthday, so he won’t have to keep a bunch of dates in his head.
Beyonce Didn’t Bail on Reebok for Diversity Issues … Shoe Company Says
4/5/2019 12:53 PM PDT
Beyonce did NOT walk out of a meeting with Reebok because it lacked diversity contrary to reports … this according to the shoe company.
A rep for Reebok tells TMZ … “The report that Beyoncé walked out of a meeting with Reebok due to lack of diversity is categorically false. Our discussions with Beyoncé and her team continued for several months after our initial meeting. We are disappointed that false information is being reported as fact.”
It is not yet clear why the deal ultimately fell through.
This is about Beyoncé so you should watch it but also @NickDePaula tells a really interesting story of why Beyoncé walked out of her meeting with the Reebok people and ended up signing with the adidas side of the brand instead.

ICYMI … ESPN reported during a segment on Rachel Nichols‘ show, “The Jump,” claiming Bey walked out of a meeting with Reebok after realizing its corporate structure wasn’t at all diverse.
As we reported … it was just announced Beyonce ultimately signed with Adidas, which will relaunch Bey’s Ivy Park line.

4/5/2019 8:09 AM PDT
Forget being the best DB in the NFL … Jalen Ramsey is gunnin’ for best BF honors — ’cause the Jacksonville Jaguars superstar got his baby mama a DOPE Rolex for her birthday!!!
Of course, JR is famously dating Giants WR Golden Tate‘s sister — Breanna Tate — and for her cake day … he got her some ICE for her wrist.
Unclear which make and model the Rollie is … but similar gold & diamond Rolexes run in the $35,000 range!!!!!
“My Queen gon stay fresher & icier than me I PROMISE,” Ramsey wrote of the gift.
24-year-old Jalen and Breanna have been going strong for a while now … and the two just had a little baby girl together last summer.
In fact, Jalen missed a portion of Jags training camp last season for the birth of their child, writing, “family is among the most important things in my life.”
Listen, all you other NFL BFs out there … STEP YOUR GAME UP!!!
Beyonce I’m with Adidas!!! Sneakers, Apparel Coming
4/4/2019 9:27 AM PDT
Beyonce is now kickin’ it with the three stripes … cause she just signed with Adidas!!
The company just announced it’s inked Bey to a new “multi-layered” deal. Adidas will also launch her signature sneakers and apparel. As part of the deal, Bey’s gonna serve as a creative partner.
Beyonce had launched her own activewear line back in 2016 called Ivy Park — a collaboration with Topshop. Her new plan is to relaunch Ivy Park under Adidas.
The singer says, “This is the partnership of a lifetime for me. Adidas has had tremendous success in pushing creative boundaries. We share a philosophy that puts creativity, growth and social responsibility at the forefront of business.”
Shoe companies signing artists is nothing new. Puma signed Rihanna back in 2014 and Reebok followed suit that same year with Kendrick Lamar. Of course, Adidas started the trend by teaming with Kanye West.
You’ll recall the shoe giant signed Ye back in 2013 to produce his Yeezys … after he bounced from Nike. In 2016, Adidas described its Kanye collab as “the most significant partnership between a non-athlete and a sports brand.”
Sorry, Drake … but for Bey, it’s stripes over checks.
Martha Stewart Freaked Out By Anti-Fur Activist Cancels Book Signing
4/3/2019 6:37 PM PDT
Martha Stewart abruptly canceled her book signing in New York after getting interrupted by an anti-fur activist … and it’s clear the demonstration ruffled her feathers.
We’ve just obtained video from Martha’s book signing at the Macy’s in NYC’s Herald Square Wednesday night, and it’s wild … you see the demonstrator come charging at Martha, holding up a sign about killing animals, ranting about Canada Goose and Martha having “blood on their hands,” as security guards quickly haul her away.
Martha’s clearly freaked out by the whole thing … we’re told the signing was called off shortly after the incident.
It’s unclear why the activist targeted this event … as best we can tell, Martha doesn’t have any connection to Canada Goose.
By the way, tons of fans had flocked to the event to snag a copy of her new book, “The Martha Manual: How to do (Almost) Everything!” Looks like they’re going home empty-handed.
Nipsey Hussle Was At His Store … To Help Just Released Ex-Con Pal
4/3/2019 1:00 AM PDT
Nipsey Hussle was in the middle of a good deed right before he was gunned down in front of his store … where he was trying to help out an old friend who just got out of prison.
Sources connected to Nipsey tell TMZ … the reason he was at his Marathon Clothing store Sunday is because he was trying to hook up his ex-con pal with some new gear so he could look good before meeting up with his own family and friends later in the day.
We’re told Nipsey’s friend had just walked out of the pen after 20 years behind bars.
Our sources say Nipsey didn’t notify his team or his primary security guard he’d be going to the store solo — it was a spur of the moment thing … we’re told no one in his camp was aware he’d left home.
Nipsey’s friend is one of the other two people who were injured in Sunday’s shooting — we’re told the third guy was the friend’s nephew, who drove him to Marathon Clothing.
We broke the story … a man walked up on Nipsey and co. and fired multiple rounds before fleeing in a waiting car. The shooter circled back to shoot Nipsey multiple times, not to mention kicking him in the head before leaving. Nipsey died from his wounds.
Police have identified 29-year-old Eric Holder as the suspected gunman — who they finally brought into custody Tuesday after a 2-day manhunt.
The LAPD believes Holder shot Nipsey over a personal dispute. Our sources tell us Nipsey shunned the guy after he tried approaching him for a convo, because he pegged him for a snitch. Holder allegedly returned shortly thereafter with a gun and opened fire.
