Travis Scott has hired a high-powered attorney to defend him against lawsuits filed in the wake of the deadly Astroworld Festival.

Former Donald Trump attorney Daniel Petrocelli emailed attorneys representing the families of 10 deceased fans, offering to pay funeral costs and other expenses.

In his emails, Petrocelli said Scott “is devastated by the tragedy” and grieves for the victims’ loved ones.

The family of the youngest victim, Ezra Blount, 9, rejected Petrocelli’s offer.

According to the Houston Chronicle, Petrocelli, 68, is known for representing high-profile clients and reportedly charges $1,500 an hour.

Scott’s legal bills will likely top $1 million a month.

Scott and the other defendants face 120 wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits totaling over $1 billion.

Seeing green! Zoe Saldana, 40, shared the tedious process of getting into character as the green-skinned Gamora in new behind-the-scenes footage from the set of the new ‘Guardians’ movie.

They say beauty is pain, but for Zoe Saldana on the set of the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie, it’s all about patience. For the actress, 43, who plays the green-skinned warrior Gamora, getting into character is a tedious process, and getting out of it is just as slow. In a new behind-the-scenes video from the set of Guardians of the Galaxy 3, Zöe shared a candid clip of her process for removing layers upon layers of green makeup. The actress jokingly compared herself to the infamous video of a rat showering like a human, posting the clip alongside a video of her carefully scrubbing off the green makeup. The video had Zoe’s famous pals cracking up; Rosario Dawson, 42, commented a series of raised-hands emojis, while Uzo Aduba, 40, wrote “I can’t!” alongside three laughing-crying emojis.

On top of showing her makeup removal process, Zöe has also shared photos from the set in full costume, including a stunning selfie on January 19th where she joked “Gamora felt cute! #nofilter.” In another post, she lamented her “3:30 am call time,” by sharing a video of her in a robe, skin fully green, drinking what looked to be a protein smoothie.

Zoe has a huge 2022 ahead of her, including more than just her starring role in Guardians of the Galaxy 3. The long-awaited sequel to James Cameron‘s Avatar finally has a release date of December 16th, 2022, and Zoe will again star opposite Sam Worthington as the beautiful Na’vi heroine Neytiri. The sequel will also welcome a host of famous new faces including Kate Winslet, Michelle Yeoh, Jermaine Clement, and even Vin Diesel.

Even with her busy filming schedule, Zoe’s made sure to keep the romance alive with husband Marco Peregro, 42. The couple enjoyed a tropical getaway last October, where photos showed Zoe rocking a Baywatch-style red swimsuit while posing gracefully in a pool. And in September, the couple were seen sharing in a rare bit of PDA at the Venice Film Festival, where Zoe looked glamourous, confident, and happy in a plunging, sequined red gown by Dolce & Gabanna.

Monica Wears Nothing But a Towel To Celebrate Turning 42 In Mirror Selfie: Photo

Monica

Happy Birthday, Mo! The singer strips down both physically and emotionally to celebrate her 42nd birthday as she wears nothing but a white towel around her body.

Monica is coming entering age 42 with confidence. The singer celebrated her 42nd birthday by showing off a sexy mirror selfie on her Instagram Stories. She wore nothing but a white towel loosely tied around her body. She showed off her tats and red nails as she shared a birthday message to her fans. “This year I will be 42… I am a Mother, Daughter, Sister & Friend ! What you see is what you get!! FTR!! MO,” she declared.

Monica recently proved she still has her vocal chops as well as her looks. In 2019, Monica returned to the stage, well the court, to sing at Game 5 of the NBA Finals in Toronto. The Grammy-winning artist slayed with her rendition of the National Anthem to kick off the game. It certainly wasn’t her first and likely won’t be the last time she’s given the honor of singing the classic.

Aside from being a hit artist from the 90s, Monica is probably best known for her beef with fellow singer Brandy. The two teamed up on their hit duet “The Boy is Mine” but the song was about the only thing harmonious about that collaboration. Once they reunited to record “It All Belongs To Me,” they spoke about the rumors and admitted their feud got physical at one point.

However, the two seemed to have gotten past the drama. “I’m not bothered at all,” Monica said of her contentious past with Brandy while on The Real in 2016. “Honestly, the old me and the new me are two different things and this journey of self-progression and self-love and empowerment that I’m on, I can’t go backwards. I think that that was just a test from God for me and I’ve always thought that she was one of the most legendary people and has one of the most amazing voices in her runs and riffs.”

Many think that Brandy attempted to reignite the drama during a performance at the Essence Fest in 2018 when she sang “the song is mine” instead of “The Boy is Mine.” Monica’s response, however, was nothing but classy. “The only time they called a little Black girl from the country to the big stage, an amazing woman, Ms. Brandy Norwood,” said Monica while performing in Texas. “See, the thing is, if we lift each other up, we can do a whole lot.” Since then, the two squashed their drama during a Verzuz battle and even hugged on it.
