Gwyneth Paltrow Sues Back Over Skiing Incident - We previously reported that Gwyneth Paltrow is in a legal battle over an alleged skiing accident. Terry Sanderson sued the actress for more than $3 million, saying that she crashed into him and kept going even though he had the right of way. Now, Paltrow has filed a countersuit against him, saying he’s the one that skied into her. The court docs counter many of Sanderson’s claims. Paltrow says she was downhill, not the other way around, and the Sanderson apologized after dealing a full “body blow” to her on the slopes. “She was shaken and upset, and quit skiing for the day even though it was still morning,” the docs continue. In his original suit, Sanderson said that Paltrow left him on the side of the mountain after knocking him over and causing multiple injuries including “a brain injury, four broken ribs and other serious injuries.” But Paltrow’s suit says otherwise, that a Deer Valley Resort employee was there, saw the whole thing, and determined that Sanderson had “taken [Paltrow] out from behind.”

Gwyneth Paltrow Leaving Marvel Universe - Don’t expect to see Gwyneth Paltrow as a regular in any more Marvel movies. The actress has appeared in “Iron Man” and “Avengers” movies as Pepper Potts, Iron Man’s secretary/girlfriend. But in a new interview for the cover issue of this week’s Variety, the actress says she’s planning to exit the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After the upcoming “Avengers: Endgame,” she’s saying goodbye to the character. Why? She says it’s an age thing. “I mean, I’m a bit old to be in a suit and all that at this point,” she notes. “I feel very lucky that I did it, because I actually got talked into it [by friend and ‘Iron Man’ director] Jon Favreau.” But that doesn’t mean she’s done with the franchise altogether. Paltrow seems open to making cameos if she’s asked. “I feel honored to be a part of something that people are so passionate about,” she adds. “Of course, if they said, ‘Can you come back for a day?,’ I will always be there if they need me.”
Trolls Flooding “Captain Marvel” With Negative Reviews: It looks like someone sent the trolls on the upcoming movie “Captain Marvel.” The audience reviews for the film on Rotten Tomatoes are flooded with negative review – a lot of which seem to be aimed at star Brie Larson. The actress recently called for more diversity among film critics and journalists, and that seems to be where much of the hate online is coming from. “Why Marvel decided to cast a very vocal racist and sexist aimed at white males, I’ll never know,” reads one review. “Tired of all this SJW [Social Justice Warrior] nonsense,” writes another hater.
The Supreme Court Says No To Cosby Defamation Suit - Bill Cosby got a little bit of good news. The Supreme Court said no to hearing a defamation lawsuit brought by one of his many accusers. Kathrine Mae McKee claimed that his lawyer, Martin Singer, defamed her in a letter and press release in December 2014. McKee, a casting director, came forward to say that Cosby had raped her in a Detroit hotel room in 1974 when she came to pick him up for a yacht party. She sued because Singer called her a liar in a letter to the “New York Daily News.” Two lower courts ruled that his words didn’t rise to the level of defamation because McKee had become a “limited purpose public figure.” Since the Supreme Court wouldn’t hear the case, they obviously agreed with the lower courts’ ruling.

Kimmy K Slams Knockoff Fashions: Kim Kardashian is coming out swinging against those fast-fashion knockoffs. “It’s devastating to see these fashion companies rip off designs that have taken the blood, sweat, and tears of true designers who have put their all into their own original ideas,” she said. “I’ve watched these companies profit off my husband’s work for years and now that it’s also affecting designers who have been so generous to give me access to their beautiful works, I can no longer sit silent.” This rant comes two days after she wore a vintage Thierry Mugler design that got copied and listed on Fashion Nova’s website for $50 bucks.
