Following news that fashion photographer Terry Richardson has been barred from working with brands owned by Condé Nast, singer Rita Ora opened up this week about working with the controversial photographer in the past and said she would have reconsidered her decision to collaborate with him if she'd known about allegations of sexual misconduct. The "Body on Me" singer collaborated with Richardson on a photo shoot last year for French magazine Lui in which she posed topless. Speaking with the Guardian for an interview published Tuesday, Ora said: "If I was aware of any of the accusations against Terry I would of course have rethought my decision." "I loved his collection of photography, I loved his book with Lady Gaga, the shoot was my choice and it was totally my suggestion," she said. "I can only talk about my experience of working with him: it was a relaxed day and I had the time of my life.
The NBA 2K19 player ratings are coming at a rapid pace now that Team 2K has been revealed. This week, we learned Boston Celtics guard Jaylen Brown would be an 84 overall when the game launches on September 11, and Miami Heat 3-and-D spark plug Josh Richardson is at a 78. A lot of fans have raved about the Golden State Warriors lineup, and with good reason, but the Celtics are shaping up to be quite the squad in 2K19 as well. Second-year star-in-the-making Jayson Tatum will be rated an 87. He is perhaps the most-overrated player thus far amongst the early reveals.
Since Richardson's announcement, rapper and producer Sean "Diddy" Combs and professional Golden State Warriors professional basketball player Stephen Curry have expressed interest on Twitter in buying the team, bringing on free agent Colin Kaepernick – the football player who instigated the NFL player kneeling protests against social injustices in 2016 – as "competition" to the Panthers starting quarterback Cam Newton. But Richardson said he will not "entertain" any buyers' interests until the season is over.
Earlier this year, Richardson appointed a special House panel to investigate Greteins after media reported details about Greitens' extramarital affair in 2015 and his use of a charity donor list for his gubernatorial campaign. Under Richardson's leadership, the Legislature had convened a special session for the House to consider whether to impeach Greitens in a quest to oust him from office. That ended when Greitens decided to voluntarily leave.
