Zoe Kravitz and mother Lisa Bonet at 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Former Cosby Show actress Lisa Bonet has been rather silent about the Bill Cosby sexual assault allegations, but now Zoe Kravitz is speaking out on her mother’s behalf.

In a recent interview with The Guardian via THR, the Mad Max: Fury Road actress said:

“She hasn’t, she really hasn’t [talked],” Kravitz said. “She’d plead the fifth, even to me. I think she’s just staying out of it. She’s just as disgusted and concerned as everyone else is, but I don’t think she has any insight. It’s news to her as well.”

Zoe goes on to say her mother is a very upfront person, and if she knew or had any information to help anyone, she would definitely say something.


In other news, Empire is being sued. Again. This time by a guy who said he faxed a similar show treatment around the industry. According to TMZ:

A guy named Jon Astor-White is suing EPs Danny Strong and Lee Daniels — as well as Imagine Entertainment and 21st Century Fox — claiming he shopped around a show called “King Solomon” back in 2007 … which bears a lot of similarities to “Empire.”

Danny and Lee have made it no secret their show is a hip-hop reimagining of Shakespeare’s King Lear, so it’s already a version of something we know. Plus, anyone who watches the show can tell it takes from people we know in real life. As they say, more money, more problems.

Astor-White is asking for half a billion dollars.

The WWE took over New York during Summer Slam this weekend, but the highlight of it all happened last night on Raw, when Jon Stewart got slammed by John Cena on live TV. The former talk show host was the talk of national media when he hit John Cena with a chair during his match against Seth Rollins last weekend, causing him to lose another belt. Stewart went on TV last night to talk about why he interfered in the match, saying he didn’t want John Cena to tie Ric Flair’s record of winning the championship 16 times. You can watch the video above to hear Jon explain it and see the end result. Ouch!

What do you get the girl who has everything? Kris Jenner.

Jennifer Lawrence had an intimate 25th birthday celebration and ended up in bed with the Kardashian momager.

Us Weekly reports:

“Jen celebrated her birthday with a bunch of her closest friends at a private home in the Hills. Her friends actually reached out to Kris Jenner to invite her to celebrate Jen’s birthday since Jen is such a reality TV junkie and loves Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” the source tells Us.

Kris gladly stopped by.
