A Canadian model claims that she had two sexual encounters with Kanye West while he was dating Kim Kardashian , including one while Kim was pregnant.
Leyla Ghobadi says: “He was aggressive in his pursuit,” and “I admit I didn’t have to do it – I got caught up in the situation. I used to idolize him.”
She claims that she was next to the stage (in Atlantic City in July 2012) when Kanye noticed her and told his bodyguard to bring her backstage. Later, they went to a club. She says they slept together the next night -- and also in October.
Kanye has released a statement through his rep denying the report. Kim has also denied it.
The model tweeted for people that doubt her statements: “Ok I’m out. Said what I had to say. To the haters –u don’t know s**t about the situation. Everyone else who’s being supportive; thank you.”

Kanye West insists he did NOT cheat on Kim Kardashian with a Canadian model/bartender claiming the woman accusing him of being unfaithful is just out for some easy publicity.
A rep for Kanye says: "This most recent attack on Kanye West and his family is totally without merit. It's a blatant attempt by a misguided individual who is clearly seeking publicity, and another in a series of malicious stories drummed up by non-credible 'news' sources."

It would seem Kanye has a 'type'.
Model Leyla Ghobadi has offered little proof of an affair with Kanye West.
She claims in the current issue of STAR mag that she hooked up with the rapper twice in 2012 and that he attempted a third hookup just this past weekend.
It turns out Ghobadi was paid just under $20,000 for her story — and never took a lie-detector test to help prove her story.
Star’s editor-in-chief, James Heidenry, confirms that she was paid but says the number is "way out of the ballpark." As for the lie-detector test, Star "didn’t think it was necessary in this case."
According to the NY Daily News, a news agency (Coleman-Rayner) had been shopping Ghobadi’s story around for a month and that other weeklies passed because Ghobadi had no proof of the alleged tryst..
** Ghobadi claims she ended up in West’s hotel room one night, where “the next thing I knew, we were both naked and having sex."
Not the case, a close Kardashian pal sas Kanye snapped a picture backstage with Ghobadi, along with other fans, and left the venue with Kardashian.
Halle Berry and fiancé Olivier Martinez are having a boy.

“Teen Mom” star Farrah Abraham has gone under the knife for the fourth time.
The 22-year-old single mother has replaced her C-cup saline implants with larger D-cups filled with silicone.
The procedure comes just a month after Abraham released her adult video, “Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom.”
Farrah said, 'I don't think I've done too much surgery at a young age. If someone wants to walk around with bags under their eyes,' that's fine, but personally, I want to look my best. And I'm looking amazing.'
Her latest nip and tuck brings the total cost of her surgeries to $30,000, which she has spent on a nose job, chin implant, and the two breast implants.
LeAnn Rimes was asked (by talk show host Wendy Williams) about her husband’s ex, Brandi Glanville.
When asked about her feud with Glanville, LeAnn said she thinks Brandi uses their spats for her career . When Wendy asked her if she could ignore it, LeAnn said, “I have done that. Both people have to want to change, and you can’t change someone else unless they actually want it.”
LeAnn also admitted that she didn’t tell her first husband about her affair with Eddie Cibrian until she found out it was going to hit a national weekly magazine.
She added, “I called my mom, I called everybody who was important to me and I said, this is what’s happening and there just was no hiding it. I was honest.”

Steven Spielberg predicts an "implosion" in the film industry is inevitable, especially after a half dozen or so $250 million movies flop at the box office.
The legendary director predicts there will be price differences at movie theaters, where "you're gonna have to pay $25 for the next Iron Man, you're probably only going to have to pay $7 to see Lincoln."
He also said that "Lincoln" came "this close" to being an HBO movie instead of a theatrical release.
Director George Lucas added that films may soon take after the Broadway play model of fewer movies being released and staying in theaters for a year with much higher ticket prices.
While that may seem far-fetched, Spielberg added that his 1982 film “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” stayed in theaters for a year and four months.
The movie about Steve Jobs starring Ashton Kutcher has a release date: "JOBS" will hit theaters August 16th.
A statement said: "Open Road Films will release 'JOBS' nationwide on August 16, 2013. 'JOBS' details the major moments and defining characters that influenced Steve Jobs on a daily basis from 1971 through 2001. The film plunges into the depths of his character, creating an intense dialogue-driven story that is as much a sweeping epic as it is an immensely personal portrait of Steve Jobs’ life."
More details will be announced soon.
HGTV, the cable channel devoted to home remodeling and interior design, apologized for a feature on its website that recommended the use of an American flag as a tablecloth for Independence Day celebrations.
HGTV advised, “Drape a large American flag over the table as a bright and festive table runner, use a nylon flag so spills can be easily wiped off and the flag can later be hung with pride on a flagpole.”
After being criticized for the article, HGTV removed it and issued an apology on its Facebook page:
"HGTV Fans, regarding the recent article that appeared on our website ... This was a regrettable use of our flag and it never should have happened," the network said. "We sincerely apologize and have removed the post from our website. We want to assure our fans that HGTV is proud of the American flag and everything it symbolizes for our people.”

But on July Fourth, MTV will have hours devoted to music genres, highlighting artists like Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. VH1 will show videos and performances from the likes of Alicia Keys, Pink and Maroon 5, and telecast a live concert that night from Philadelphia featuring the Roots and John Mayer. CMT will offer a "barbecue playlist" of artists like the Avett Brothers, Carrie Underwood and Luke Bryan.

Jennifer Lopez says Latinos in the United States are starting to realize their power in politics and media, and that makes the timing good for her latest project in finding greater diversity in TV programming.
Jennifer is launching a new set of programming July 18th on the NUVOtv network. She serves as chief creative officer of the English-language Latino channel.
Lopez said: "It's an extension of who I am as an artist. As I grow in this business, I've been in the business close to 20 years now, that creative spark that you have doesn't go away. It keeps growing almost. Singing and acting and dancing and performing live, it's always going to be my passion. But at the end of the day when you're given the opportunities to be more creative, to create things more from the ground up, to really, really do things like NUVO, which is, really for me empowering a community that means so much to me."
"It feels bigger than me. It feels bigger than just a television show. It's something that can change the world, the face of television, the way people feel about themselves, how they're inspired, what they aspire to do and to be."
"There's a big revolution going on, it's like a media and cultural revolution of Latinos here in the United States. We're realizing our power. We're realizing that we matter here. You know, we're not just, you know, the guys working behind the scenes in the kitchens and as a plumber. You know what I mean. We really have influence. We're really growing as a community and we've come into a place where we deserve to be considered and served and catered to and that's an exciting thing for Latinos right now."
Even with her new projects, Jennifer will never stop performing.
She said: "It's a new day when it comes to women. Where before, whatever, 20 years ago, you were written off by the time you were 25, oh she's 28, she's so old. We're realizing, the world is realizing that women are not even coming into their own until they're in their 40s, that they have so much to offer. That you can stay in shape, that your life is not over once you have kids and it becomes only about your kids, that to be a great mother, or great parent or great woman in this world you have to be a great individual first, you know what I mean, and that's very empowering and we're all realizing this. It's a new day for women, it's a new day for Latinos, it's a new day."

According to the National Enquirer, Whitney Houston suffered from a secret heart defect.
Apparently, Whitney had battled a heart problem her entire life and knew she was going to die young.
A source said: “Whitney was born premature and was a very small baby. She didn’t talk about it a lot, but she knew that she had heart problems and her life was probably going to be cut short. So for those who knew her well, Whitney’s death was the result of an ongoing health problem. Whenever she fell ill or looked sick, we’d ask one another, ‘Is this it?’”
Whitney was found dead at the Beverly Hilton hotel in 2012. According to the official coroner’s report, she accidentally drowned in the bathtub. A heart incident and cocaine use were listed as contributing factors in her death, along with other drugs.
The source said: “Some days Whitney mentioned that she was having difficulty breathing. Other times she said that she was exhausted even if she’d just woken up. And she often sweated a lot, even when the temperature was cool. But she never complained. She knew nothing could be done about her heart defect, and she just kept going. Whitney knew she could drop dead at any time. Needless to say, she abused drugs. But whether or not she used drugs, she believed she’d never see her 50th birthday. Still, Whitney knew she was blessed, and she didn’t feel at all sorry for herself. She lived her life her way.”
