Incredibly, no one was seriously hurt in Macklemore’s car. Pitcher suffered face and head injuries.

They both benefited from the relationship, but she certainly knew about his bad behavior.”

Lohan Defends Weinstein Again: Perez Hilton claims Lindsay Lohan defended Harvey Weinstein again yesterday with the following statement to Daily Mail TV. “I am saddened to hear about the allegations against my former colleague Harvey Weinstein.

She Tweeted: ”I would also love to get an apology from Ben Affleck who grabbed my a$$ at a Golden Globes party in 2014. He walked by me, cupped my butt.

Like most women in these situations I didn’t say anything, but I have thought a lot about what I’d say if I ever saw him again.”

Tyrese ripped The Rock yesterday for doing a Fast and the Furious spin-off. He told TMZ: “I don’t know what they are doing. Everybody is coming at me like I am hating on Dwayne for the spinoff but I’m not. The truth is I just wish he was releasing it at a different time. It’s not a conflict. ‘Fast and the Furious’ is like a holiday. The ‘Fast and the Furious’ family, the trucks the people who have been with us for 16 years, you know, pushing our release date back. It’s only happened one time in the fast and furious franchise when we lost our brother Paul Walker. You know, so what’s the reason we are pushing the date back for this one? So you know, I just got a problem with the way it appears Dwayne is selfish, it appears he is so focused of furthering his own self-interest. He is making decisions from the seat he is sitting in. Fast and the Furious 9′ is not coming out until 2020.”
