The Le'Nalors News of The Week - Jason Momoa Calls Lobo the ‘Perfect’ DC Role

Aquaman star Jason Momoa has once again declared his love for the DC antihero Lobo, calling it “the perfect role.” Momoa heaped praise on Lobo during a recent conversation with Fandango, during which he promoted what’s likely to be his final outing as the DC superhero Aquaman in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, adding fuel to the idea that he will return to the world of DC as Lobo in James Gunn’s DCU.

"So, Lobo… I used to collect comics and I don't do so much anymore, but he was always my favorite. And I've always wanted to play Lobo because I'm like, 'Hello?.’ It's pretty perfect. It's the perfect role. I mean, listen, if they call me and ask me to play it? It's a f*** yeah. But, I mean, that's a guarantee. So, you don't have to worry about that. But, I haven't received that call. So, I don't want to put any fake news out there but if they ever call me and ask me to play, or ask me to audition, I'm there."

Rumors and speculation that Momoa will leave the crown of Aquaman behind in favor of intergalactic bounty hunting as Lobo have been circulating for some time. The action star is certainly not shy about this love for the character, with some reports even claiming that Momoa is already locked in and that the casting change will be announced once Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom has been released.

James Gunn and Peter Safran’s DCU will begin in 2025 with Superman: Legacy. The reboot is all set to introduce several other recognizable DC characters, with some even suggesting that Momoa’s Lobo could play a part. 

The Le'Nalors News of The Week - Kevin Hart Sues Tasha K For Extortion Over Interview With Ex-Assistant

According to new legal documents obtained by The Blast, Kevin Hart has decided to take legal action against Tasha K. He recently filed a lawsuit against the gossip blogger, accusing her of extorting him for $250K. Allegedly, a representative of Tasha K contacted Hart's team in November of this year, claiming to have a damning interview with an ex-assistant of his at the ready. He accuses her of threatening to unleash it should he not provide her with the money.

Tasha K was eventually hit with a cease-and-desist letter stating that she had no right to discuss Hart's story. He further noted that he wouldn't be paying her. Tasha K later shared a snippet of the aforementioned interview on her blog's Instagram page. Hart's team perceived this as a threat; suggesting that if she wasn't paid, she'd release the full interview.

“You have already engaged in criminal conduct and tortious acts that would entitle Mr. Hart to monetary damages against you should he elect to commence civil litigation regarding this matter,” Hart's suit reads. “To the extent that you do not cease and desist now, your liability for such monetary damages will increase, as will your exposure to criminal penalties.” Hart also argues that his ex-assistant, Melissa Shake, would be in hot water if the interview was released. According to him, she signed an NDA when she was employed by Hart.

In the interview, Shake makes various bombshell revelations about the beloved comedian, including that he's allegedly a serial cheater. She accuses him of getting a steward on his private jet pregnant, fornicating with an Instagram model behind his wife's back, and more. Shake also alleges that Hart struggles with a gambling addiction and that "poker is his game." She claims that it once got out of hand, and he was allegedly unable to properly pay his employees.

 Russell Wilson reportedly expects to be a free agent in the 2024 offseason following his benching by the Broncos. According to reports from Bleacher Report and ESPN, Wilson fully expects to be cut because he refused to defer his injury guarantee to 2025. Wilson's weighty contract includes an injury protection clause if he is unable to pass a physical in March 2024. However, Wilson was reportedly asked to defer that guarantee to 2025 and refused. According to Dianna Russini of ESPN, the threat of benching was leveled at Wilson earlier in the season because of this. At the time of writing, Jarrett Stidham will start the last two games of the Broncos' season.

The Le'Nalors News of The Week - T.D. Jakes Diddy Rumours Are "Unequivocally False And Baseless,"

T.D. Jakes

Since Cassie ripped off the band-aid on Sean Combs' troubling past with her sexual assault and human trafficking lawsuit in the fall, things for the New Yorker have grown increasingly messy. He quickly settled the case with his ex, but any legal action taken since then is being written off by Diddy and his legal team. Try as he might to protect his name, 50 Cent continues to troll the "I'll Be Missing You Artist," and is even promising to donate proceeds from his R. Kelly-inspired documentary about Diddy to survivors of assault.
As the year comes to a close, Bishop T.D. Jakes' name is surprisingly being linked to the former Revolt board member. A viral TikTok video describes the 66-year-old as a "power bottom" who attended Diddy sex parties with other men. Ahead of the weekend, Lil Duval jumped on Twitter to express doubt in the gossip, and according to The Jasmine Brand, the preacher's team is also issuing a statement on his behalf to clear up any confusion and hate. "Recent claims circulating on pockets of social media about Bishop T.D. Jakes are unequivocally false and baseless," it begins.

"What has always been true, in the words of the late Pastor Charles H. Spurgeon, 'If you want the truth to go round the world you must hire an express train to pull it; but if you want a lie to go round the world it will fly; it is as light as a feather, and a breath will carry it,'" Jakes' director of PR and communications, Jordan A. Hora, told the press. "[It's] disheartening to witness the proliferation of numerous deepfake photos and the distortion of words through false, sensationalized misrepresentations, encapsulating purported statements to falsely speculate and attack others, including Bishop Jakes."

As T.D. Jakes joins Diddy in the fight to clear his name, the Bad Boy mogul seems less concerned about addressing the unflattering allegations rising against him, and more interested in spinning the block with a past lover. Earlier this month, social media sleuths noticed he's now following Gina Huynh on Instagram again after the socialite reportedly blocked him following her public spat with Yung Miami. 



Lizzo‘s attorneys have petitioned the courts to seal documents related to the ongoing sexual harassment suit against her, claiming that failure to do so could result in a detriment to her business.

According to court documents obtained by Radar Online, the petition to seal the documents was filed on Thursday (December 21), stating that the “Good As Hell” singer worries that “documents, correspondence and testimony that contain sensitive, confidential information and/or proprietary business information, including employee compensation, contract negotiation, and third-party sensitive contact information” could be subjected to public scrutiny.

“These records, including portions of Declarations in support of the Motion and attached exhibits, should be ordered sealed to avoid any harm to the parties through their public disclosure,” Lizzo’s lawyers wrote in their petition, according to the outlet.

The judge has not yet ruled on the petition, as of this writing.

This is just the latest turn of events in the ongoing saga between Lizzo and her backup dancers.

Last month, lawyers representing Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams, and Noelle Rodriguez filed an opposition filing, saying that anti-SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation) statutes don’t protect Lizzo from facing legal repercussions for their allegations.

They wrote in the 19-page filing: “Can a global celebrity be forever insulated from civil liability because all their conduct is protected as free speech under the anti-SLAPP statute? Defendant Lizzo asks this Court to rule in exactly that fashion. Fortunately for all victims of celebrity malfeasance, the law says otherwise.”

They added: “In an apparent effort to dupe this Court, Defendants either cherry-pick allegations or outright omit allegations inconvenient to their position, instead sanitizing them with euphemisms.”

Lizzo’s representatives responded to the allegations in a statement to Rolling Stone, reminding  them that many of her other employees backed her with statements of their own recently.

“Last month, 18 independent witnesses stood by Lizzo’s work ethic and character,” Stefan Friedman said. “It is clear that since then, these plaintiff lawyers have come up with exactly zero to refute these facts.”

As previously reported, Lizzo’s attorneys filed a motion to dismiss the case in a Los Angeles court on October 27.

In the filing, the three women suing were described as having “an axe to grind” who had shown “a pattern of gross misconduct and failure to perform their job up to par.”

“Plaintiffs embarked on a press tour, vilifying defendants and pushing their fabricated sob story in the courts and the media,” it reads. “That ends today.

“Instead of taking any accountability for their actions, plaintiffs filed this lawsuit against defendants out of spite and in pursuit of media attention, public sympathy, and a quick payday with minimal effort.”
