A representative for Ferrell told TMZ that the comedian was not seriously hurt. The gossip site was the first to report on the crash, which happened around 11 p.m.

Ferrell was among three men and a woman who were injured when a vehicle struck the SUV that the actor was riding in, according to KTLA and TMZ. The SUV spun and flipped over, briefing stopping northbound traffic, KTLA reported.

A spokesman for the Orange County Fire Authority told the news station that all four of the injured people were in the SUV at the time of the collision. Three of them suffered minor injuries while the fourth person, who was not identified, was admitted to a hospital as a trauma patient, KTLA reported.

Authorities declined to identify the people involved in Thursday’s crash to KTLA, but video obtained by TMZ appeared to show Ferrell being loaded into an ambulance. 

Officials do not believe that drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash. Authorities continue to investigate.

Megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar tells congregation don’t criticize Snoop Dogg

Megachurch Pastor Creflo Dollar recently told his congregation not to throw shade at rapper-turned-gospel performer Snoop Dogg.

The California-based godfather of rap and actor recently released “Bible of Love” through his All the Time Entertainment, in association with RCA Inspiration. 

The “Gin and Juice” and “Drop It Like It’s Hot” rapper said he was inspired by his grandmother and pulls in some heavyweight gospel talent like the Clark Sisters and Rance Allen.

Dollar, pastor of World Changers Church International, said the church should focus on grace and not past behavior. He was preaching on the “Spirit of Grace.”

“I’m gonna say something publicly. I don’t know if I’m really correct in saying this but I want to say something publicly,” Dollar said. “Recently, a man in California, he’s a rapper, in fact, he’s known as a legend, they call him, I think his nickname is Snoop Dogg. He just released a gospel album to minister to people ‘cause his grandmamma ministered to him and he had it on the inside of him. Isn’t it sad that he received rejection and flak and ‘how y’all gon’ support somebody like this after what they did and what they said?’ What’s wrong with us?” Dollar asked. 

While Snoop Dogg may have received criticism for going in another direction musically, his album has also received positive reviews.

Here are lyrics from one of the singles:

“I know god is calling me 

I'm not where I'm supposed to be 

Sitting here smoking trees 

When I should be on my knees”

Dollar said the “Holy Ghost police” were wrong to go in on the rapper because they don’t know his heart or spirituality. 

Dollar said he might call Snopp Dogg himself.

Someone should have said “Congratulations, thank you so much, thank you so much for releasing something that can minister to people and encourage people and help people,” he said.

Tristan Thompson allegedly cheating on Khloé Kardashian with multiple women, reports say

Khloé Kardashian is expecting her first child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson any day now, but reports say Thompson has been cheating on her for months.

People reported that Thompson was allegedly photographed with another woman at the PH-D Lounge in Manhattan on Saturday night.

The Daily Mail published video and photos of the 27-year-old Cleveland Cavaliers player with a brunette woman. In some of the footage, Thompson appears to be kissing her.

The same woman, according to The Shade Room, was seen Saturday in New York leaving a day party with Thompson and later met up together around 8:30 p.m. at a hotel where the Cavaliers were staying. The gossip site reported that the woman and Thompson left together for a night party, which may have been at at the PH-D Lounge, and came back to the hotel together at 5 a.m. The woman was seen leaving the hotel alone the next morning, wearing the same outfit she was photographed in the night before.

The Cavs were in New York for a Monday night game against the New York Knicks.

The footage appears to only be the latest in other incidents in which Thompson has cheated on Kardashian.

“Tristan has been consistently cheating on Khloé,” an unnamed source told People. “He’s a serial cheater. And there will be more women to come out of the woodwork.”

On Tuesday, TMZ posted an October 2017 video that appears to show Thompson kissing one woman as another groped him at a Washington, D.C., hookah lounge. Thompson also appears to bury his head in one woman’s chest.

It appears the entire Kardashian-Jenner family has responded to some degree to the reports. The Daily Mail reported that Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, and Kylie and Kendall Jenner, as well as Scott Disick have unfollowed Thompson on Instagram.

Kardashian, 33, and Thompson began dating in September 2016, when Thompson’s ex girlfriend, Jordan Craig was pregnant with Thompson’s first child, a son named Prince Oliver. The Shade Room and People reported that Craig responded to the allegations against Thompson on Instagram.

“If you respect yourself and you respect others, you would never make light of the misfortune of anyone, nor would you feel indemnified when it comes at the expense of others,” Craig wrote. “Wishing peace for everyone.”

Neither Thompson nor Khloé Kardashian have responded to the reports.

Mariah Carey opens up about having bipolar II disorder 

Mariah Carey has revealed that she struggles with bipolar II disorder.

The singer, who infamously had a public breakdown in 2001 on “TRL,” is opening up about her mental illness for the first time in People magazine.

It was that year, when she was hospitalized for a mental breakdown, that she was first diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

“I didn’t want to believe it,” Carey said.

Carey said that for a while she thought she had a sleep disorder, but now realizes she was having manic and depressive episodes.

“For a long time I thought I had a severe sleep disorder, but it wasn’t normal insomnia and I wasn’t lying awake counting sheep,” Carey said. “I was working and working and working … I was irritable and in constant fear of letting people down. It turns out that I was experiencing a form of mania. Eventually I would just hit a wall. I guess my depressive episodes were characterized by having very low energy. I would feel so lonely and sad — even guilty that I wasn’t doing what I needed to be doing for my career.”

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, bipolar II disorder is characterized by “a pattern of depressive episodes and hypomanic episodes,” but short of manic symptoms that require immediate hospital care. Some symptoms of a manic episode include increased activity levels, agitation or irritability and trouble sleeping. NIMH says some symptoms of a depressive episode include having trouble sleeping or sleeping too much, forgetting things a lot, eating too much or too little, having little energy, and thoughts of death or suicide.

Ultimately, the 48-year-old mother of two got help, and is now in therapy. She is also taking medication, which she said “seems to be pretty good” and doesn’t make her feel too tired or sluggish.

Carey is hopeful that revealing her battle with bipolar II disorder will help decrease the stigma associated with mental health.

“Until recently I lived in denial and isolation and in constant fear someone would expose me,” Carey said. “It was too heavy a burden to carry and I simply couldn’t do that anymore. I sought and received treatment, I put positive people around me and I got back to doing what I love — writing songs and making music.”

Royal wedding: Trump not invited, Obamas not going either, report says

Cancel that shipment of monogrammed “Harry & Meghan” towels from the White House.

CNN is reporting that President Donald Trump is not invited to the royal wedding on May 19 in Windsor, England.

Former President Barack Obama and wife Michelle won’t be there either, despite having a close and apparently fun-loving relationship with groom-to-be Prince Harry in particular. Though it’s not clear if the Obamas were invited and just have something else to do that day (though seriously, what could be more important than watching the current fifth-in-line to the throne say “I do” to former “Suits” actress and American Meghan Markle)?

Apparently, the lack of invite is nothing personal where the current president and first lady Melania Trump are concerned. A White House official told CNN that no elected U.S. officials were invited to the nuptials at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

In fact, a spokesman for Kensington Palace (where Harry and Meghan live, along with their neighbors, Prince William and Kate and their kids) told CNN that “world leaders and political figures would not be invited in their official capacities."

“It has been decided that an official list of political leaders — both UK and international — is not required for Prince Harry and Ms. Markle’s wedding,” the palace told CNN.

Hmm … Technically, the Obamas no longer have “official capacities” as political figures, so maybe they did make the cut?

“The royal source would not say whether they had been invited,” CNN said.

“Probably an hour after the last time I picked my drink up, I felt crazy but not drunk. I knew immediately something was different. It was like I was there, but I wasn’t there. I forget who I was with, but whoever I was with, I tapped them on the shoulder and said ‘Something is wrong.’ And they’re like, ‘No, you’re just drunk.’ And then I started hysterically crying.”

Eve said she was placed in a room and was still crying when she heard someone else in the room.

“I heard this really soft voice that's like, ‘It’s OK. It’s OK. I'll take care of it,’ and I’m snot crying and I turn around and it’s Janet Jackson.”

It was the first time Eve met the superstar, and she said she was embarrassed under the circumstances.

“I was like, ‘I didn’t want to meet you like this!’” 

Watch Eve recall the moment in the video below.
