But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it. Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family."

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to Marry in Italy?

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Television, Weddings, Rumors,

Kim Kardashian and Kanye WestKim Kardashian and Kanye West are getting married in Florence, Italy.

The power couple have been rumored to be tying the knot in Paris for months, and even though guests have been invited to a dinner in the French capital on the evening before their wedding, a source close to them told Entertainment Tonight they are flying guests to the historic Italian town afterward.

One of the reasons for this could be that French law requires a strict 40-day residency before they can get hitched in the country.

Kim, 33, recently set straight a number of rumors surrounding the wedding, confirming it will not be televised on her Keeping Up With the Kardashians reality show and that no-one has seen her dress prior to the big day on May 24 and they have not already secretly married in California.

Memorable lyrics include, "I gotta get her, go get her back / I gotta treat her right / I gotta cherish her for life," and "I should've kissed you longer / I should've held you stronger / And I'll wait for forever for you."

And the blonde beauty - who was previously married to Nick Lachey for three years until 2005 - is not planning to walk down the aisle in a traditional white gown. "Jessica is having something unique made. It will be very different from the Vera Wang she wore to wed Nick Lachey," a source said.

Jessica - who got engaged to Eric, 34, in November 2010 after five months of dating - recently admitted her plans have been progressing and she is "very close" to issuing invitations for her nuptials: "We are very close to sending out our invites. I've been very picky on how I want everything to look and feel. Eric's family alone is almost 90 people, so it'll definitely be a big event."

Kanye West and Kim KardashianKim Kardashian and Kanye West are set to make $21 million from their upcoming wedding.

The couple - who have 11-month-old daughter North together - will tie the knot in Paris on May 24 and are reportedly "cutting deals left and right" in order to profit from their lavish nuptials, even though the event won't be filmed for Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

A source told In Touch magazine that the 33-year-old reality TV star is allowing the E! network to capture "everything leading up to and after" their big day. "She's taping everything else so she can get things for free in exchange for the exposure. They realized how much their wedding was costing, so they told E! they wouldn't allow parts of it to be taped unless the network offered them more than $15 million, which is what Kim got for her wedding to Kris [Humphries]. Her mom couldn't help herself either. Kris [Jenner] is trying to get them another $4 million for their wedding photos," the source explained.

iPhone 6 will reportedly sport 1704 x 960 display resolution

iPhone 6 1704 x 960

It's been rumored for months that Apple will launch two larger iPhone models this year, and now 9to5Mac is jumping in with a report on the new display resolution. If correct, we should see the iPhone 6 sporting a 1704 x 960 resolution. That's way up from the current 1136 x 640 resolution found on the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s Retina displays, and would allow Apple to release the phones with a larger display while enhancing the Retina quality of its smartphones. No, it's not 1080p (that would be 1920 x 1080,) but it's close enough that at the rumored screen sizes of 4.7- and 5.5-inches, you'd be hard-pressed to notice.

The number we want to look at here is the pixels per inch (ppi), which will tell us how sharp the displays will be. 1704 x 960 at 4.7-inches results in a pixel density of 416 ppi. On a 5.5-inch iPhone, that drops a bit to 356 ppi. The iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s, comparatively, both have a 326 ppi display, so the new iPhone 6 models definitely will look better than the current devices.

iOS 8 won't be much different from iOS 7 in terms of the design and layout, so instead we can likely expect app icons that are sharper and larger on the home screen, and in-app elements to be clearer as well once developers get their apps updated for the new display. Of course, Apple will have its own first-part apps ready at launch.

Word is that we may see Apple unveil the iPhone 6 at a special event in August, but this info seems solid. If you recall, a couple of years ago we reported that the iPhone 5 would get a bump to a 4-inch 1136 x 640 display prior to it being announced.


Jay Z Extortion Case Dropped

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Legal Issues,

Jay ZJay Z is no longer seeking extortion charges over his old recordings.

Producer Chauncey Magan was detained last month after the "99 Problems" hitmaker's label Roc Nation accused him of stealing master tapes in 2002 and demanding $110,000 for their return, but as the rapper doesn't want to pursue charges, Los Angeles police are no longer investigating the case. However, according to TMZ, LAPD officers will hold on to the recordings until a civil judge tells them otherwise.

Mahan - who was interning at Roc Nation when the recordings were made - previously claimed he had been asked by the record label to keep track of the music because the 44-year-old star was just "a stupid kid smoking blunts" at the time, and was reckless with his intellectual property. The producer also insisted he repeatedly told Roc Nation he had the masters - which include "I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me)" and "Holla" - over the last decade and only requested the money when he could no longer afford to pay the storage fee.
He claims he only asked for the cash as compensation for keeping the recordings for 12 years in Northridge, California.

Kelly Rowland Marries

Tim Witherspoon and Kelly RowlandKelly Rowland has gotten married.

The former Destiny's Child singer and her manager Tim Witherspoon tied the knot in a secret ceremony in Costa Rica last Friday, it has been claimed. "It was a quick, simple ceremony - only around 30 people," a source told Us Weekly. Among the guests were Kelly's former bandmate Beyonce and her sister Solange.

Although the nuptials haven't been confirmed, Beyonce had posted a photograph to her Instagram account on the big day wearing what appeared to be a bridesmaids dressed but was captioned only, "'Good morning."

Speaking last December, 33-year-old Kelly admitted she and Tim had been engaged for some time: "He put a ring on it. It's been a while. We've kept it very, very low - for years, to be completely honest." Kelly also revealed her boyfriend of four years proposed on Skype while she was in Bulgaria. "He put a ring on it! He asked me first on Skype and I was like, 'We're so far away from each other.' But it was so late, I remember we were both just kinda like, honestly, just staring at each other ... and he asked me, and it was just that simple to say yes," she said.

Michelle Williams and Dustin YellinMichelle Williams has reportedly split from her boyfriend.

The My Week With Marilyn actress and Dustin Yellin are said to have separated after a year of dating, Us Weekly reports.

The 33-year-old beauty - who has eight-year-old daughter Matilda with her late ex-fiance Heath Ledger - was first romantically linked with the artist when they were spotted holding hands in May 2013 after the Met Gala. The pair were not spotted together very often and Michelle didn't speak publicly about her romance with the 38-year-old artist.

Though it is unclear when they split, Dustin didn't appear to be with the actress when she and her Cabaret cast and crewmates celebrated the Broadway production's opening night last month, and he also wasn't by her side at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for this year's Met Gala earlier this month.
