Timothy White/E!(LOS ANGELES) — Khloe Kardashian didn’t bite her tongue when it came to addressing the ongoing criticism of her young sister Kylie Jenner and her rumored boyfriend Tyga.

In an interview with Complex, Khloe argues that Kylie is not a normal 17-year-old and believes her dealing with the 25-yeard-old rapper isn’t an issue.

“I think at 16 I was probably f****** someone that was in their 20s, for sure. I wouldn’t say I was even dating, probably just sleeping with them. But again Kylie is not a normal 17-year-old,” Khloe tells the mag.

She continues that Kylie isn’t hosting “slumber parties” or “going to prom,” adding that she’s more mature.

“Kylie is taking business meetings and bought her first house, or she’s going on a private plane with Karl Lagerfeld to take a meeting. That’s not even what people do in their 30s,” Khloe says before adding: “It’s a rare circumstance, so let’s treat this as a special case.”

Peter Kramer/NBC(NEW YORK) — Shia LaBeouf is involved in a new controversy, this time involving a fight with his girlfriend that was caught on video.

The clip, obtained by Entertainment Tonight, shows the 29-year-old actor fighting with his girlfriend, British actress Mia Goth, 22, outside a hotel in Tubingen, Germany, where she’s reportedly filming a movie.

Shia is then seen talking to a group of locals, who offer to drive him to the airport. “I don’t wanna touch a woman. I don’t want to hit a woman, but I’m getting pushed,” he explains to them.

After he gets into their car, Goth returns and takes Shia’s backpack, begging him not to go. “I don’t wanna touch you. I don’t wanna be aggressive. This is the kind of s*** that makes a person abusive,” he’s heard telling her.

Later, after getting his bag back, LeBouf tells the locals as they drive to the airport, “If I’d have stayed there, I would have killed her.”

During the car ride, LaBeouf apparently makes an unsuccessful attempt to FaceTime his Transformers co-star Megan Fox.

Once at the airport, the German locals offer to take LaBeouf, who seems to have suffered an injury to his hand, to the hospital.

The day after the incident, Goth was reportedly seen with a black eye, according to the German tabloid Pure Stars.

LaBeouf and Goth met while filming Lars von Trier’s erotic drama, Nyphomaniac. They have been romantically linked since 2012, with rumors swirling that the couple is engaged, after Goth was seen sporting a massive ring in March, according to ET.

ABC/Lou Rocco(NEW YORK) — Ireland Baldwin can laugh off the fact that her dad, Alec Baldwin, called her a “rude, thoughtless little pig” in an infamous voicemail that leaked eight years ago.

Ireland, 19, on Sunday tweeted a photo of herself and her father, who’s holding a children’s book titled If I Were a Pig….

She joked, “If I were a pig… I would be a rude and thoughtless one of course!”

In 2007, TMZ posted an angry voicemail from the actor in which he referred to his then-11-year-old daughter as a “rude, thoughtless little pig” and said he would “straighten [her] a** out,” after she missed his phone call.

The voicemail was leaked amid a bitter custody dispute between Baldwin and his ex-wife and Ireland’s mother, Kim Basinger.

Ireland downplayed the incident in a 2012 interview with the New York Post’s Page Six, saying, “For me it was like, ‘OK, whatever.’ I called him back I was like, ‘Sorry Dad, I didn’t have my phone.’ That was it.”

Ireland spent time in rehab earlier this year for what she described as “emotional trauma.”

Paramount(NEW YORK) — Producer and star Tom Cruise, plus Jeremy Renner, Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, and the other stars ofMission: Impossible — Rogue Nation hit the red carpet at the movie’s New York City premiere Monday night.

“It’s such a fun character,” says Cruise, who will be seen as super-spy Ethan Hunt for the fifth time when the movie hits theaters Friday. “As a producer, it’s a blast working on it. We just finished the movie last Saturday at two o’clock, so even finishing the movie was a mission impossible. It was just a nail-biter.”

Simon Pegg, who plays computer geek-turned field agent Benji Dunn in his third Mission movie, said, “It’s always great fun working with Tom, you know, he’s such a good boss. He…leads from the top down. He keeps everything fun.”

Fun was on the mind of Jeremy Renner — the Avengers alum reprises his Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocolrole of Agent William Brant. “You get these guys together — a lot gets done, and not a lot gets done. We have a little too much fun,” he said.

The movie, which was directed by The Usual Suspects‘ Oscar-winning screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie, also stars Ving Rhames and Rebecca Ferguson.

Lifetime(NEW YORK) — The death on Sunday of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s only child, Bobbi Kristina Brown has closed a chapter, but the story is far from over, says Essence Entertainment Director Cori Murray.

“No, it isn’t. I mean, on one hand, there’s no more suffering for Bobbi Kristina, but on the other hand there are tons of questions that still need to be answered, why this 22-year-old girl has left us,” she tells ABC Radio.

Although preliminary autopsy results from the Fulton County Georgia Medical Examiner on Monday did not reveal an obvious cause of death, and no significant injuries were found, the Fulton County District Attorney’s investigation into Bobbi Kristina’s passing remains open. Murray says that people want to know the truth about what led to Kristina being found face-down in her bathtub back in January.

“I think a number of people are gonna want answers,” she says, given Whitney Houston’s stardom. “This is not something that will be swept under the rug. Ultimately will this have been a homicide? You know, those are the things we’re gonna need to know and I think the public is gonna demand that.”

Murray also addressed the rumors that Brown’s partner, Nick Gordon, was somehow involved. “You’re relieved that the pain is gone, but what happened? What went on in that townhouse? What was their relationship like?” Murray says. “I mean, there’s just so many unanswered questions that we all need answers to.”

She adds that Bobbi Kristina never truly recovered from Whitney’s own death. “This was something that, you know, just seemed to haunt her a bit. You know, losing her mother and losing her mother publicly — while most people can grieve privately, she had to grieve with everyone,” she says. “And in the way she lost her mother…I think this wasn’t inevitable, I think it’s just ultimately really sad.”

While Murray predicts that Bobbi Kristina eventually would have “found her place in the spotlight,” she says her death is doubly sad because for many, she was seen as the last remaining link to Houston herself.

“It’s so heartbreaking because everyone loved Whitney so much. Whitney was all of our favorite singer. To see her battle her demons like she did and ultimately lose that battle with those demons, so yes, and here it is her one and only child who didn’t get to fulfill her legacy,” she says. “I think that’s what kind of really makes this painful, that Bobbi Kristina couldn’t live out her days.”

Peter Kramer/NBC(NEW YORK) — In Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation, Tom Cruise is seen hanging from the side of a plane as it takes off as he reprises his role as agent Ethan Hunt. Can moviegoers expect the same high-octane action sequences from co-star Jeremy Renner?

“I don’t know,” Renner admitted on Monday’s Live with Kelly and Michael of daring stunts. “I don’t think I’d go that far to do that sort of stuff, but I’d do it if I had to.”

“I think [Tom] kind of comes up with those ideas to do it. I would do it if it was asked of me,” Renner added. “I think he’s sort of likes coming up with the idea to do it.”

Still, Renner said viewers can count on him to make them laugh in the action film. “There’s a lot of humor to help cut the tension. I usually am the guy that creates tension but this one, I get to like, you know, kinda cut it a little bit,” he explained.

On Kelly and Michael, Renner also revealed the hardest part of working on the fifth installment of the Mission: Impossible series. “For me, it was being on an 11-hour flight from my baby. So that was tough,” he said.

Renner and his estranged wife, Sonni Pacheco, welcomed a daughter, Ava Berlin, in March 2013.

“I did Avengers right before Mission and we both shot in London so it’s a year [of being away,]” sad Renner. “People are like, ‘You’re not gonna miss out on any[thing]…she’s not gonna remember.’ I’m like, ‘What about my memories!’ My memories are important.”

Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation, also starring Alec Baldwin and Ving Rhames, is out Friday.
