UPDATE: A-Rod, J.Lo, and J-Rod are Fine

A story which, as we noted yesterday, has been blowing up from the bowels of The National Enquirer: A-Rod has allegedly been sexting an ex-girlfriend behind J.Lo’s back, and TMZ reports that sext-ee Lauren Hunter is threatening to extort him for $600,000. Nothing, of course, is going to top the Anthony Weiner story; as far as I’m concerned, until a penis makes the headlines, it’s a non-starter.

Still, Lainey Gossip has published a handy chronicle of a long history of gossip about people cheating on J.Lo, like P-Diddy and Casper Smart, and the rumored time that Ben Affleck went to a strip club.

J.Lo stands by A-Rod, and at this writing, J-Rod survives.

Why tf is Courtney Love hating on Linda Sarsour? Yesterday she went ballistic on twitter, calling Sarsour “a vile disgrace to all womankind” for “collecting money for an incident that never occurred.”


Love is referring to a fundraiser by Sarsour, a Palestinian Muslim-American who helped plan the Women’s March, for a Muslim Somali-American who was allegedly beaten in the face by a white man for protecting another Muslim woman. (It’s unclear whether the crime was racially-motivated, and police haven’t found a suspect because of various conflicting stories, but two women were hospitalized.) Courtney Love has concluded that Linda Sarsour is a profiteering monster.


The Love rant goes on and on until a journalist steps in.


@danielleiat, we also wonder. Two days prior, the alt-right site Daily Caller had run a post headlined “Linda Sarsour Has Raised $80K For Anti-Muslim Hate Crime That Allegedly Did Not Happen.”

Sarsour is no stranger to taking crap on social media from right-wing sites which have previously accused her of ties to terrorists. She’s not giving it the time.

I’m having trouble figuring out why Courtney Love gives a good goddamn - she’s been known to use histrionics to collect money/fame/prestige/royalties/etc (Not saying Sarsour is, I also have no clue what’s up there) so like... What gives?
