Kanye West declares he's 'releasing all grudges' due to the queen's death
Even in death, Queen Elizabeth II may have bestowed one last gift on all of us by getting Kanye West to finally put down his phone. Ye has taken to Instagram to declare that due to the queen's passing, he's "releasing all grudges" and "leaning into the light." Alongside two photos of the queen, the rapper wrote that "life is precious," something he apparently just realized after the death of a 96-year-old woman. This came just one week after West went on a wild Instagram posting spree that saw him share private texts with Kim Kardashian, claim that "pornography destroyed my family," and swipe at Pete Davidson by asking "how those tattoos of my kids doing in the trauma unit." But is Ye now declaring a ceasefire in his one-sided war on everyone in his life? Count us skeptical — though if we spot him in line to see Taylor Swift at TIFF this weekend, maybe we'll believe it.
Kylie Jenner still hasn't legally changed her son's name
Kylie Jenner's son legally remains a wolf in [undisclosed name]'s clothing. On The Late Late Show With James Corden, Jenner revealed she still hasn't officially changed her son's name from Wolf, despite declaring six months ago that Wolf is no longer his name. Jenner welcomed her second child with Travis Scott in February and initially announced his name as Wolf. But the following month, she revealed they changed their mind. "We just really didn't feel like it was him," she said. Half a year later, Jenner now tells Corden her son's name, legally, is still Wolf. "His passport's Wolf," she said. "But that isn't gonna be his name." So, what will it be? Jenner isn't ready to say, and she and Scott are still "waiting and simmering on it," possibly because "one day, [Scott will] be like, 'Oh, this name's kind of cool,' and change it again." No rush, guys, but maybe his wedding day can be a loose deadline?
Emily Ratajkowski officially files for divorce after cheating allegations
Emily Ratajkowski is "thinking about dating," so it's probably time to get around to divorcing her husband. The model and actress has officially filed for divorce from Sebastian Bear-McClard amid claims he cheated on her. The two have been married since 2018, and they have a son together. But in July, Page Six reported they were splitting up because, in the words of a source close to Ratajkowski, "He cheated. He's a serial cheater." Ratajkowski effectively confirmed the rumors by liking a series of tweets about Bear-McClard cheating. The divorce filing comes after Ratajkowski moved out of her home with Bear-McClard and railed on TikTok this week against the "patriarchy" and the notion of men trying to possess women, something she's noticed "as a recently single person who's thinking about dating." On a completely unrelated note, Ratajkowski went on TV last year to discuss why women find Pete Davidson, who is also now single, attractive, so ... you can see where this may be going.
Bill Hader, Mindy Kaling not returning for 'Inside Out 2' over salary dispute
What was going through Disney's head when they low-balled Bill Hader and Mindy Kaling? A sequel to Pixar's Inside Out is in the works and will be announced at Disney's D23 Expo this weekend, Matthew Belloni reports at Puck. But Hader and Kaling, who voiced Fear and Disgust, respectively, reportedly aren't returning because Disney didn't offer enough money. Amy Poehler will apparently come back and be paid $5 million, plus bonuses and additional fees, but Hader and Kaling were reportedly offered $100,000 each without bonuses, which they found insultingly low. "Disney upped the offer," Puck says, "but not enough to lure Hader and Kaling." Inside Out told the story of a young girl from the perspective of the emotions in her head, and the ending teased a follow-up focused on her going through puberty. Hader and Kaling won't be part of that story, but thankfully, it's not like the emotions of "fear" and "disgust" will be relevant in a movie about a teenager, right?
'Morbius' is the No. 1 movie on Netflix
It was supposed to be the summer of Morbius — but now, it's about to be the fall of Morbius. The widely disliked Jared Leto superhero film hit Netflix on Wednesday … and not only is it not flopping, but it's the number one movie on the streaming service in the United States. Released as part of Sony's series of "Spider-Man without Spider-Man" films, Morbius received some of the worst reviews for a superhero movie in recent memory and bombed at the box office, sparking countless memes based on the premise that absolutely nobody was going to see it. Inspired by those memes, Sony later re-released the movie in theaters … and it bombed a second time. Well, the studio may be getting the last laugh thanks to a deal that eventually brings its films to Netflix — where subscribers' standards for films are so low that even one as awful as Morbius fits right in.
