    After reports surfaced that Justin Bieber and his fiancée Hailey Baldwin had secretly gotten married, Hailey tweeted "I understand where the speculation is coming from, but I’m not married yet." She then deleted that tweet – and now her uncle is seemingly confirming the under-the-radar nuptials.

    On the Emmys red carpet Monday night, Hailey’s uncle, nominee Alec Baldwin, said, "Well, they went off and got married, and I don’t know what the deal is, because I mean, we text Hailey every now and then...we met him one time."

    Asked if he’d give Bieber a talking-to about treating his niece right, Baldwin said, "That’s not my job. She has a dad and I’m sure he has a few paragraphs about that, so I’m not worried."

    Hailey’s dad is Alec’s brother Stephen Baldwin, who’s appeared in movies like Born on the Fourth of July, The Usual Suspects and The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas.

    Drake has filed a lawsuit against a woman who claims he got her pregnant, saying that she made false pregnancy and rape claims in an attempt to extort him. According to TMZ, Drake met Instagram model Layla Lace in Manchester, England during his "Boy Meets World Tour" in February 2017. The rapper said that they has consensual sex and that "Layla also voluntarily and seemingly happily performed oral sex..."

    The lawsuit contains a number of text messages that Layla sent Drake in the following weeks. However, the rapper said that Layla created a "fantasy relationship" with him and, at a point, he didn’t have the "time or energy to respond."

    In April 2017, Layla posted on Instagram that she was pregnant, saying, "So I guess still in this era this is the new thing that after you tell a dude you pregnant they stop answering they phone!!!" According to the lawsuit, she treated to publicly leak messages from Drake and even went on SiriusXM, announcing that Drake got her pregnant.

    In May 2017, Layla hired a lawyer and demanded money for her alleged baby, and threatened Drake with defamation because of a story posted on TMZ, where Drake said he had never met her. The lawsuit claims that Drake asked about a paternity test and at that point, lawyer and her attorney disappeared. He allegedly said, "There is no credible evidence of pregnancy, nor any baby, which would have been born last Fall."

    Layla then switched her story and went to authorities in New York and alleged that Drake raped her during their one-night stand. Drake said that Layla hired a new lawyer who demanded money, or else they would make the rape complaint public.

    According to the lawsuit, the case was referred to Manchester police, who interviewed Drake and ultimately cleared him. However, Layla later demanded millions in exchange for silence. Drake is suing Layla Lace for civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, and abuse of process. He is asking for unspecified damages.

    In other news, according to Page Six, Drake blew $200,000 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City. After his "Aubrey & the Three Migos tour" in Philadelphia, Drake performed five songs at Daer Nightclub on Sunday (September 16th). Insiders said that Drake and his crew were going to head to Scores inside the Hard Rock, but had a change of heard because it was too full. Drizzy decided to gamble a bit at the private high-rollers area, which was cleared out for the rapper and his crew. Sources said that the casino even opened the Sugar Factory restaurant after-hours for the rappers and his friends.

    The last time Harry Styles posed for a Gucci campaign, he was pictured carrying a chicken into a fish ‘n chip shop. In his new campaign for the luxury brand, the animal theme continues, but his surroundings have been upgraded.

In the campaign, Harry travels from the fish and chip shop in North London to the historic Villa Lante, near Viterbo, north of Rome.

    He also poses with more pets – a lamb, goat and piglet – in the Mannerist, Renaissance gardens of the 16th-century Italian villa.

    The outfits are characterized by relaxed fits, as well as the bold prints Michele is known for. The campaign officially impacts across all media in November.

    Meanwhile, Happy Together, the CBS sitcom Harry’s executive producing, debuts October 1st.

    Rita Ora will release her long-awaited second album, Phoenix, November 23rd. The album is available to pre-order and the singer is set to release a new single, "Let You Love Me," September 21st.

    Rita’s been doing pretty well without releasing an album: her latest five singles have racked more than a billion streams worldwide. She just won an MTV VMA for Best Dance Video for her collaboration with Avicii, "Lonely Together," and earlier this year, she scored a hit duet with Liam Payne with "For You," from the movie Fifty Shades Freed. All three of those songs will be included on Phoenix.

    In a statement, Rita says, "This album is a true labor of love, and it was important for me to do it my way. I’m so appreciative of the love and support from those who worked with me on the record and allowed me to create something I’m really proud of."

    She adds, "I am really proud of and grateful for the journey that the making of Phoenix has taken me on. To my fans, thank you for your patience and thank you always for listening."

    Phoenix arrives six years after Ora’s self-titled 2012 debut.

    The Weeknd and Daft Punk have been accused of stealing the beat from The Weeknd’s record, "Starboy." In documents obtained by The Blast, songwriter Yasminah, who is a Somali-American poet and activist, claims that in 2009 she recorded a song called "Jewel of My Life" aka "Hooyo," which became a big hit in the East African community of Western transplants. Yasminah claims that in 2016, The Weeknd released "Starboy," which she says is a carbon copy of her song. She said that The Weekend knew about her song because it made its rounds in the East African Community.

    Yasminah said that she hired a lawyer to go after The Weeknd before, and allegedly reached a settlement, but claims her label allegedly kept the money, so now she needs to take matters into her own hands.

    She is suing The Weeknd, Daft Punk and Republic Records for $5 million for allegedly ripping off her work.
