Nicki Minaj has been a trailblazer her whole career and is once again breaking records. She has become the first female artist with 100 career appearances on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

She debuted at number 83 with her new Tyga single ‘Dip’,  and she joins just four other acts with triple-digit totals, including Drake, Lil Wayne, Elvis and the cast of the television show “Glee.”

Billboard’s Hot 100 tallies streaming, airplay and sales data numbers to determine chart position and have been around since 1958. The “Glee” Cast tops the list with 207 entries, followed by Drake (191), Lil Wayne (160) and Elvis Presley (108).

Nicole Kidman has never spoken out in any real way about Isabella and Connor…her adopted children with ex-husband Tom Cruise. That is, until now. In a new interview, she addresses the long-rumored rift between them when it comes to the kids being Scientologists.

The actress says that no matter what her two oldest children choose to believe in, she’ll always be there to love them as their mother.

She also admits that her dedication to being a mother is why she’s been “very private” about her relationship with Isabella and Connor as rumors have stirred over the years.

LL Cool J and Ice Cube are teaming up to make money moves. The veteran rappers reportedly want to purchase 22 regional sports channels from The Walt Disney Company.

What prompted the new venture? Apparently after Disney acquired 21st Century Fox in a multi-billion dollar deal, lawmakers stepped in and decided it wasn’t fair for the company to own all of Fox’s sport networks since they’re majority owners of ESPN. In other words, Disney was forced to sell.

The network deal would include channels like Fox Sports San Diego to Fox Sports Arizona, Fox Sports Detroit, Fox Sports Southwest and more. It also includes the YES channel, which would be a huge money move since the New York-based network broadcasts Yankees games. The initial bids will reportedly happen this week.

Congratulations are in order for Missy Elliott. The MC has become the first female rapper to be nominated for the Songwriters Hall of Fame. If she’s able to make it in, she’ll become the third hip-hop artist to do so.

Also joining Missy as performing nominees in the 2019 class are Mariah Carey, Vince Gill, Mike Love, Jimmy Cliff, Cat Stevens, Tommy James, and more.

Eligible members can vote for three non-performing songwriters and three performing songwriters until December 17th.

We told you before that three years of separation, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner signed off on their divorce with a private judge. Well, according to court documents, the two are now legally divorced.

The private judge reportedly wrapped things up by submitting the final documents in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Wednesday. That was the final step the two actors were waiting on after finalizing the details of their divorce last month.

That means the two are officially single… well, sort of. You may recall that Jennifer Garner has been dating businessman John Miller for quite a few months already.

JK Rowling is reportedly suing her former personal assistant. Although Amanda Donaldson denies the claims, she’s accused of stealing cash and “Harry Potter” memorabilia, as well as using a business credit card to make more than $17,000 in unauthorized payments.

According to the author’s suit, Donaldson was fired last year after three years of employment. She claims the ex-assistant was in charge of fans’ requests for “Harry Potter” memorabilia, which she used to her advantage to steal some expensive pieces including a nearly $3,000 Harry Potter Wizard Collection and a motorized Hogwarts Express train worth around $600, among others.

On top of all that, the author claims her ex-assistant stole more than $10,000 worth of foreign cash from a safe that she had access to. And when it comes to using Rowling’s business credit card, Donaldson allegedly went on a shopping spree – here’s what she’s accused of buying without Rowling’s consent:

The case will reportedly go to court next year.

The London premiere of “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald” was held yesterday, and its controversial star Johnny Depp was notably absent. While the outrage around his role could point to him being a no-show, this also comes days reports that he was axed from “Pirates Of The Caribbean.”

We previously reported that Chris Pratt and Anna Faris signed off on their divorce with a private judge. As of Wednesday, the private judge reportedly finalized their settlement… and we have the details.

It looks like although they’re saying goodbye to their marriage, they’re not completely out of each other’s hair. According to the court documents, the former couple has agreed to live a maximum of five miles apart for the next five years – until their son Jack finishes sixth grade.

If one of them should need to move farther than that limit for some reason, they’re required to notify the other in writing three months in advance. On top of that, they have to give 30 days notice if they’re traveling out of the country with Jack and “reasonable” advance notice if they’re traveling out of state.
