Rob Kardashian doesn’t appreciate fat jokes, Johnathan Cheban attacked


Hard times

Ravaged by alcoholism, Deryck Whibley doesn’t look like a young man of 34. TMZ spotted the Sum 41 frontman taking a walk in L.A. held up by two women, and it was a sorry sight. Over the weekend Whibley wrote an emotional post on his website with pictures of him in intensive care. Avril Lavigne’s ex-husband was hospitalized for a collapsed liver and kidneys caused by years of hard drinking, he said.

Reality follies

Rob Kardashian’s weight is a touchy subject. The reality bro took to social media after being snapped at LAX heading to Paris for you-know-who’s wedding looking a bit hefty. “So I found out I was trending for being fat .” he tweeted. “Thank you all, it really made my day :)” Just lay off the croissants. Oops, sorry. Bad joke.

Johnathan Cheban maybe shouldn’t tell the world where he is at all times. Kim K’s pal was at Sushi Couture restaurant in NYC Sunday night and Instagrammed where he was. That’s when a man entered the place with a pocket knife hanging off his belt and began yelling at him, reports E! News. The unidentified man hung around until Cheban and his crew were about to leave, then lunged. A security guard was on site, and punched the dude. Oddly, no cops were called.

    From ‘Downton Abbey,’ Dan Stevens goes to being a most welcome ‘Guest’

    It’s been almost two years since Dan Stevens’ beloved Downton Abbey character, Matthew Crawley, met with an untimely end, and some die-hard fans of the PBS costume drama still may not quite be over it. But for the 31-year-old British actor, Crawley’s tragic death marked a kind of rebirth – or at least a chance to strike out in some very different directions as an actor.
