Leonardo DiCaprio is Suing a Tabloid That Says He Knocked Up Rihanna
Leonardo DiCaprio is suing a French magazine that claims he knocked up Rihanna and won’t admit he’s the father. The magazine is called “Oops!”, if you can believe it, and they know the story is bogus. In an interview with an American website, one of the owners says, quote, “We didn’t know [if Rihanna was pregnant]. We thought she might be. We were not sure, of course.” Still, he’s shocked Leo is suing, and says he thinks it might be, quote, “the first time an American superstar has sued a French magazine.” Leo might never have even heard of the magazine or its story, except that he was in France for the Cannes Film Festival when it came out. He’s suing for $20,000 in damages and legal fees, the maximum allowed by French law. Get more here.

Here’s her performance. “The Star Spangled Banner” begins, “O say can you see, by the dawn’s early light. What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming.” She replaced the word “proudly” with “prided.” Then during the verse that says, “O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming,” she replaced “watched” with “hailed.” After singing, she admitted her mistake on Twitter.
