Apple announced its new iPhones last night in a big event at Apple HQ in California. During the event, some new technology didn’t work as expected. You’re supposed to be able to unlock the phone with your face, just by looking at it. Unfortunately for this guy, it didn’t work the first couple of times. Apple stock immediately began to fall, recovering later. But really it wasn’t the phone’s fault, turns out someone had restarted the phone and Face ID only works after a person has entered their passcode once.

It’s that time of year where we find out how Britney Spears spends her money. Brit is still on her conservatorship where all her finances are monitored and reported. Documents reveal that last year, Britney spent $11 million, up $3 million from the year before. She spent $122,000 on massages, grooming and nails. $30,000 went to pet care for her dogs. She only spent $69,000 on clothing, which sounds cheap.

Got my roots colored today!!! But now I think I want to CUT it!!!! 😉😉😜😜

Jean-Claude Van Damme’s son Nicholas has been arrested for holding his roommate at knifepoint. Police were called to the 21-year-old’s Tempe, Arizona apartment after he punched his elevator. Police found a trail of blood to his apartment, and Nicholas’ roommate opened the door for them. The cops left, but had to come back later when his roommate escaped and said he’d been held at knifepoint after Nicholas got upset he’d let the police in.

My daughter Bianca, son Nicolas and a helpful LAX agent!! ✈️
