Adele Postpones Las Vegas Residency

One day before her Las Vegas residency was set to kick off, Adele has announced that she has had to postpone all dates.

In an emotional video, shared on Twitter, a teary-eyed Adele revealed that a last-minute decision was made to delay the show because it wasn’t ready in time.

“I’m so sorry, but my show ain’t ready,” she told her fans. “We’ve tried absolutely everything that we can to put it together in time and for it to be good enough for you, but we’ve been absolutely destroyed by delivery delays and COVID.”

Half her crew tested positive for COVID-19, causing major disruptions. “It’s been impossible to finish the show. And I can’t give you what I have right now and I’m gutted. And I’m so sorry it’s last minute,” she continued.

The residency, titled “Weekends With Adele,” was set to begin Friday, Jan. 21 at the Colosseum of Caesars Palace and run through April 16. Tickets for the 24 shows sold out minutes after they went on sale last month.

Adele profusely apologized to her fans who traveled to see her this weekend. “I’m so upset and I’m really embarrassed and I’m so sorry to everyone that traveled again,” she added. “I’m really, really sorry. I’m really sorry.”

She and her team are already working to reschedule all the dates and more information will be released soon.

“I’m gonna finish my show and I’m gonna get it to where it’s supposed to be,” she said. “It’s impossible. We’ve been up against so much and it just ain’t ready.”

Akon Sued for $4 Million by Former Business Partner

Akon’s former business partner is suing the singer for refusing to pay him $4 million.

Music executive Devyne Stephens, who helped launch Akon’s career, claims he is still owed $750,000 and at least $3 million in royalties, according to an amended complaint filed in the 2021 Manhattan Supreme Court.

As part of the terms of their 2018 settlement agreement, Akon agreed to pay Stephens $3.25 million over the course of four years but he still hasn’t paid the final installment of $750,000.

In documents, obtained by Page Six, he alleges that Akon sabotaged his relationship with Atlantic Records in order to get out of paying Stephens royalties for four future albums while signed to a “major” label.

Akon claims he shouldn’t be responsible for Stephens’ 20 percent of royalties since he is now under BMG Records. However, Stephens argues that Akon is still under obligation to pay the royalties since he allegedly intentionally breached his contract with Atlantic and since BMG “by any objective metric, is a ‘major’ record label.”

Akon has spent the better part of a decade frustrating Stephens’ attempts to obtain large amounts of money which Akon unambiguously promised in contracts to pay Stephens,” state the court documents.

This is the third time that Stephens, the former vice president of Akon’s Konvict Muzik label, has taken Akon to court. In 2017, Stephens sued the “Don’t Matter” singer for $150 million in unpaid fees.

Pete Davidson Finds Kanye West’s Threats ‘Hilarious’

Pete Davidson is laughing off Kanye West’s threats.

Kim Kardashian’s new boyfriend is not worried about Ye wanting to “beat [his] ass,” according to a new report.

“Pete thinks it’s totally hilarious,” an insider tells Page Six. “Not just that — he thinks the whole [tabloid drama with him, West and Kardashian] is hilarious. He loves it.”

On his “Eazy” collaboration with The Game, Ye raps, “God saved me from that crash / Just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s ass.”

Pete has reportedly beefed up security in the wake of the threats. “Pete isn’t worried about Kanye, but he is concerned about the massive fanbase that Kanye has. His devoted followers listen to his songs and act upon them. That’s why Pete is now using security,” a source tells Radar Online.

Jake Paul said he would be joining Ye and coming after Pete, who made a series of jokes at his expense during the YouTuber’s boxing match with Ben Askren last year. “Kanye & I on his ass now. Soon to get slapped,” Paul tweeted.

Despite the drama, Ye’s diss has only strengthened Pete’s relationship with Kim. “The whole craziness with Kanye last week has brought Kim and Pete closer,” another source tells Page Six.

Last week, Ye claimed that Kim stopped him from entering her home with their kids because Pete was there. However, a source close to Kim says that the “SNL” comedian has yet to be introduced to her kids.

Jeezy and Jeannie Mai Reveal Baby’s Name

Baby Jenkins has a name.

Jeezy and Jeannie Mai are introducing the world to their baby, Monaco. In a video posted to her YouTube account, the new mom revealed that the couple’s first child together was named after the city in the French Riviera where they made their relationship official.

“It’s the first place that Jay and I traveled to when we were dating,” Jeannie said, while giving a tour of Monaco’s nursery. “And it’s the first place we ever established what was going on with us.”

On the wall is a framed photo of a bridge in Monaco where she and Jeezy had a three-hour talk about their vision for the future. Jeannie returned to that same bridge by herself and FaceTimed Jeezy, and they had the “best date night talk.”

In honor of the luxurious city, Monaco already has his own Bentley “just like daddy.” “The theme of the nursery is what Monaco is about–family, moments, traveling, discussions…key points in my life and Jeezy’s life that brought Monaco here,” she explained.

On Jan. 11, “The Real” co-host announced the arrival of their bundle of joy. “I asked God for a life of love and happiness. He sent me my family,” she captioned a photo from the delivery room. “Baby Jenkins is here.”

Mai previously said she would not be learning the sex of her child before birth.

“That makes things more exciting rather than defining the baby with pink skirts or blue corduroy shorts,” she told WWD. “I’m getting everything because I want the baby to have options. It’s very awakening to see how much you put your baby into very specific stereotypes, based on whether or not you know it’s a boy or a girl.”
