County In Lawsuit According to a new report, <strong>Kobe Bryant's</strong> widow <strong>Vanessa</strong> and other family members may be forced to submit psychiatric exams by Los Angeles Count. The request is in relation to their legal dispute over photos of the helicopter crash scene that took her husband and daughter's lives. Reportedly, the request stems from a legal point: <strong>Did Vanessa Bryant and the others suffer emotional distress because photos of their dead relatives were shared by county fire and sheriff's department employees after the crash? Or was the emotional distress only from the crash itself?</strong> L.A. County argues that the crash itself is the cause. <strong>Vanessa Bryant</strong> is suing for invasion of privacy and negligence after county employees improperly shared photos of human remains at the crash site. The county contends that its employees did not publicly disseminate any accident site photos. <a href="https://thejasminebrand.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/vanessa-bryant-gigi-bryant-kobe-bryant-the-jasmine-brandlogo.jpg" target="_blank"><div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://thejasminebrand.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/vanessa-bryant-gigi-bryant-kobe-bryant-the-jasmine-brandlogo.jpg" title="" /></div> </a>Vanessa Bryant, Gigi Bryant, Kobe Bryant The famed NBA legend and his daughter, Gianna, sadly died in a January 2020 crash with seven others.

In a new interview with Vanity Fair, <strong>Dwayne Johnson</strong> gets candid about their previous feud and the role he played in the conflict. <a href="https://thejasminebrand.com/2016/08/09/rock-calls-fast-furious-co-stars-theyre-chicken-sht/" target="_blank">As previously reported,</a> back in 2016, <strong>Dwayne Johnson</strong> called out his male 'Fast &amp; Furious' co-stars on social media. In the post, which has now been deleted, he said, <strong>"Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't. The ones that don't are too chicken sh** to do anything about it anyway."</strong> <center><a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=uisBaTkQAEs" target="_blank"><img src="http://i.ytimg.com/vi/uisBaTkQAEs/default.jpg" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Many thought he was referring to <a href="https://thejasminebrand.com/2021/09/29/tyrese-influencer-zelie-timothy-announce-theyve-broken-up/" target="_blank"><strong>Tyrese</strong></a>, as the two also had a very public feud but after <strong>Tyrese</strong> denied it, others speculated he was addressing <strong>Vin Diesel.</strong> Speaking on the situation now, <strong>Johnson</strong> says, <strong>"It caused a firestorm.

I shouldn't have shared that. Because at the end of the day, that goes against my DNA."</strong> Elsewhere in another interview, <strong>Vin Diesel</strong> also addressed their alleged beef saying as a producer he had to show Johnson some 'tough love.' He added, <strong>"It was a tough character to embody. As a producer to say, 'Okay, we're going to take Dwayne Johnson, who's associated with wrestling, and we're going to force this cinematic world, audience members, to regard his character as someone that they don't know' - Hobbs hits you like a ton of bricks."</strong> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image3"><img id="bvimg3" src="https://thejasminebrand.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/vin-diesel-guardians-of-the-galaxy-premiere-2014-the-jasmine-brand-396x595.jpg" title="" /></div> On <strong>Diesel's</strong> comments <strong>Johnson</strong> said, <strong>"I've been around the block a lot of times. Unlike him, I did not come from the world of theater. And, you know, I came up differently and was raised differently. And I came from a completely different culture and environment. And I go into every project giving it my all. And if I feel that there's some things that need to be squared away and handled and taken care of, then I do it.

She also claims the couple had an associate offer her $20,000 and later threaten her. Reportedly, this all began after <strong>Kenneth Petty </strong>was arrested in 2020 for <a href="https://thejasminebrand.com/2021/08/09/nicki-minajs-husband-kenneth-petty-agrees-to-plea-deal-for-neglecting-to-register-as-a-sex-offender-in-california/" target="_blank">not registering as a sex offender</a> when he moved to California.

As a result, <strong>Jennifer Hough </strong>is requesting a $20 million default judgment. However, last night (Thursday, Oct. 14th), the couple's lawyer reportedly contacted <strong>Jennifer Hough</strong>'s attorney-<strong>Tyrone Blackburn</strong>-to request an extension for them to respond. <strong>Tyrone Blackburn </strong>replied: <strong>"I said NO!

Yesterday (Thursday, Oct. 14th), actress <strong>Lili Bernard </strong>filed a lawsuit against <strong>Bill Cosby</strong>. In the new case, <strong>Lili Bernard</strong> accuses the disgraced comedian of drugging and raping her in Atlantic City, New Jersey around August 1990. <strong>Lili Bernard </strong>says that, after meeting <strong>Bill Cosby </strong>on the set of The Cosby Show, he offered to take her under his wing and mentor her. He also allegedly warned her of "the sexual pressures of Hollywood." During the late summer of 1990, <strong>Bernard </strong>claims <strong>Cosby </strong>invited her to Atlantic City with him under the premise of meeting a producer to help further her career. However, while at the Trump Taj Mahal (now known as the Hard Rock Hotel &amp; Casino Atlantic City), <strong>Lili Bernard </strong>says <strong>Bill Cosby </strong>allegedly drugged her. After feeling "symptoms of dizziness, an urge to vomit, and weakness", <strong>Bernard </strong>said she passed out. While coming in and out of consciousness, <strong>Lili Bernard </strong>says she saw <strong>Bill Cosby </strong>allegedly undressing and-ultimately-raping her. <strong>Bernard </strong>also alleges that <strong>Bill Cosby </strong>threatened to "erase" her if she told authorities about the alleged sexual assault. In the lawsuit, she says she's suffered mental, psychological, and physical trauma, and she's resultingly seeking $125 million in damages. Regarding the matter, <strong>Lili Bernard </strong>commented: <strong>"I have waited a long time to be able to pursue my case in court and I look forward to being heard and to hold Cosby accountable for what he did to me. Although it occurred long ago, I still live with the fear, pain and shame every day of my life."</strong> She also seemingly addressed the filing on Instagram. Underneath a photo alongside her attorneys, <strong>Bernard </strong>in part wrote: <strong>"Today is the first day of the rest of our lives. God bless us all. Grateful to my attorneys Jordan Merson and Jordan Rutsky for their compassion and expertise."</strong> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://thejasminebrand.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Lili-Bernard-359x600.jpg" title="" /></div> In response to the lawsuit, <strong>Bill Cosby</strong>'s spokesman-<strong>Andrew Wyatt</strong>-stated: <strong>"This is just another attempt to abuse the legal process, by opening up the flood gates for people, who never presented an ounce of evidence, proof, truth and/or facts, in order to substantiate their alleged allegations. Mr. Cosby continues to maintain steadfast in his innocence and will vigorously fight ANY alleged allegations waged against him and is willing and able to take this fight to the highest court in these United States of America."</strong> Notably, <strong>Lili Bernard</strong>'s lawsuit isn't the only matter <strong>Bill Cosby </strong>has to deal with. <a href="https://thejasminebrand.com/2021/10/01/bill-cosby-due-in-court-this-april-to-face-civil-lawsuit-accused-of-sexually-assaulting-15-year-old-at-playboy-mansion-in-1974/" target="_blank">As previously reported</a>, the 84-year-old comedian is due in court this April to face allegations that he sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl in 1974. <strong>What do you think about the new lawsuit against Bill Cosby?

Recently, <strong><a href="https://thejasminebrand.com/2021/09/29/khloe-kardashian-says-her-hair-fell-out-when-she-had-covid-19-tv-networks-turn-down-good-american-ad-because-its-too-revealing/" target="_blank">Khlo Kardashian</a> </strong>opened up about what she does to help keep the damaging effects of insecurity away from <strong>True Thompson</strong>, her young daughter. <strong><a href="https://thejasminebrand.com/2021/09/28/khloe-kardashian-misses-being-paid-to-hang-out-w-family-seemingly-confirms-theyre-filming-for-new-reality-show/" target="_blank">Khlo Kardashian</a> </strong>revealed that one thing she does is correct adults who remark that her three-year-old daughter is "big." <strong>Khlo Kardashian</strong> says that, because she and <strong>Tristan Thompson </strong>are respectively 5'10" and 6'9", <b>True Thompson </b>is also fairly tall for her age. As a result, many well-meaning adults will see <strong>True </strong>and comment <strong>"She's so big!"</strong> However, <strong>Khlo </strong> is sure to correct them by being more descriptive, oftentimes responding: <strong>"Oh, she's so tall."</strong> <strong>Khlo Kardashian </strong>says that being more descriptive helps reinforce that the comment is not at all negative: <strong>"I try to make them be more descriptive. I know what an adult means when they say that, but I don't want her to misinterpret that."</strong> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://thejasminebrand.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Khloe-and-True-521x600.jpg" title="" /></div> Khlo Kardashian and True Thompson Notably, she also dished on how media scrutiny about her own size led <strong>Khlo </strong>to take this stance: <strong>"When it comes to food-I had so many issues. It wasn't from one person, I guess just from society or how people critiqued my body. So, I don't play when it comes to True."</strong> These comments come about six months after <strong>Khlo Kardashian </strong><a href="https://thejasminebrand.com/2021/04/08/khloe-kardashian-posts-topless-video-as-she-addresses-unauthorized-photos-release-this-is-my-body-untouched/" target="_blank">addressed some of the negative things</a> she's heard of herself over the years: <strong>"'Khlo is the fat sister.' 'Khlo is the ugly sister.' 'Her dad must not be her real dad because she looks so different.' 'The only way she could have lost that weight must have been from surgery.' You never quite get used to being judged and pulled apart and told how unattractive one is, but I will say if you hear anything enough then you will start to believe it. This is how I have been conditioned to feel, that I am not beautiful enough just being me."</strong> <strong>What do you think about Khlo Kardashian's revelation, and do you agree with her stance?
