Oprah Winfrey was hospitalized for “some kind of stomach thing,” her best friend, Gayle King, revealed on Tuesday.Winfrey, 70, was supposed to drop by King’s “CBS Mornings,” but skipped out on the appearance due to being under the weather.“She had some kind of stomach thing — stomach flu — stuff was coming out of both ends,” the news anchor, 69, explained.“I won’t get too graphic. Needless to say, she ended up in the hospital, dehydration, had to get an IV, it was a very serious thing.”A spokesperson for Winfrey told Page Six that the billionaire “is recovering following a stomach flu and received an IV due to dehydration at the recommendation of her doctor.”“She is resting and feeling better every day,” the statement concluded.Winfrey had planned to introduce author David Wroblewski and his book, “Familiaris,” which is the latest pick for her book club.“I wanted to make it clear that [the book] matters to her and it really bothered her that she couldn’t be here today.

Comedian Bill Burr says ‘I f–king hate liberals’ at UC Berkeley show, calls out hypocrisy
Comedian Bill Burr called out the hypocrisy of liberals during a show on UC Berkeley’s campus over the weekend, reportedly telling the audience that he “f—ing hate[s]” them.Burr, never one to shy away from controversial topics, covered everything from his relationship with his wife and the ongoing Israel-Gaza war, to transgender rights and Biden’s cognitive decline, before wading into his issues with liberals, the San Francisco Gate reported.“I f—ing hate liberals,” Burr reportedly told the audience on Saturday. The outlet said it was clear he was referring specifically to “White liberals,” and that he took issue with their hypocrisy, not necessarily their political ideology.He proceeded to call out people who put “Black Lives Matter” signs in their windows without taking any quantifiable actions.“That’s like if I told you my great-grandmother in Germany had a ‘Knock it off, Nazis’ sign,” he said, according to the outlet.The comic continued, “If you run into a White person who says they’re an empath, run the other way.” Burr said such people “like making other peoples’ suffering about [themselves].”At a different point in the show, Burr seemed surprised at how the Berkeley crowd laughed at a joke about President Biden having dementia, SF Gate reported.This isn’t the first time Burr took the opportunity to air his frustration with liberals in public.

‘Pharma Bro’ Martin Shkreli allegedly copied one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album that sold for $4.75M
$4.75 million for a one-of-a-kind album by the hip-hop group Wu-Tang Clan, only to learn that the convicted pharmaceutical executive made copies and is releasing the music to the public.Shkreli paid $2 million in 2015 for “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin,” and gave it up to partially satisfy a $7.4 million forfeiture order after his 2017 conviction for defrauding hedge fund investors and scheming to defraud investors in a drugmaker.The plaintiff PleasrDAO said Shkreli has, since his May 2022 release from prison, told fans on live streams and social media platform X that he kept and had shared the album, once saying, “I was playing it on YouTube the other night even though somebody paid $4 million for it.”PleasrDAO also said thousands of people tuned in on Sunday to hear the album on a live stream that Shkreli called a “Wu tang official listening party.”Such activity violates the forfeiture order, amounts to misappropriation of trade secrets, and “greatly diminishes and/or destroys the album’s value,” according to the complaint filed Monday night in Brooklyn federal court.PleasrDAO wants Shkreli to destroy his copies, turn over profits from disseminating the music, and pay compensatory and punitive damages.Lawyers who have represented Shkreli in criminal and civil matters declined to comment or did not immediately respond to requests for comment.The plaintiff is displaying “Shaolin” this month at the Museum of Old and New Art in Hobart, Tasmania.Shkreli, 41, became notorious and gained the nickname “Pharma Bro” when, as chief executive of Turing Pharmaceuticals in 2015, he raised the price of the life-saving antiparasitic drug Daraprim overnight to $750 per tablet from $17.50.He was released early from his seven-year prison

Prince Harry searching for a UK home as his friends are not visiting over ‘rifts’ with Meghan Markle: report
something he’s been doing since last year.After being evicted from Frogmore Cottage in June 2023, Harry and Meghan have not had a permanent place to stay on his home soil.According to royal commentator and expert Tom Quinn, the father of two is “sad” that he no longer has a British address to his name.“As time goes by, Harry misses some aspects of his old life in the UK,” Quinn told The Mirror.“Inevitably, the honeymoon period where everything in the States is new and exciting is coming to an end and Harry is looking back at the past through rose-tinted spectacles.”Quinn added that Harry misses his schoolmates and army friends, “many of whom have not visited as they don’t get on with Meghan.”“Harry is determined to find his own permanent home in the UK, which is partly why he’s continuing his legal action to get the British taxpayer to pay for his security,” he added, referring to London High Court’s decision to strip the Sussexes of taxpayer-funded UK security protection.The Post has reached out to reps for the Sussexes for comment.Earlier this year, Harry was ordered to pay 90% of the UK Home Office’s legal costs for defending the court’s initial ruling.In February, Sir Peter Lane, the judge of the High Court, ruled that there was no unlawfulness in stripping Harry and Meghan of their security in Feb.

Former UK pop star Gary Glitter ordered to pay sex abuse victim $650,000
Former British pop singer Gary Glitter was on Tuesday ordered to pay a woman he sexually abused as a child more than $637,000 in damages.The 80-year-old, whose real name is Paul Gadd, shot to fame in the 1970s as a “glam-rock” star before he was later repeatedly convicted and jailed for child sex crimes.Gadd was sentenced to 16 years in prison in 2015 after being found guilty of indecently assaulting three girls in the 1970s.One of those three victims, who said she was 12 when Gadd raped and sexually assaulted her, sued the singer at London’s High Court for damages caused by the abuse.Judge Amanda Tipples on Tuesday awarded the woman $647,730 in damages after a hearing in March at which Gadd was not present or represented by lawyers.The damages awarded to the woman, who is now 60 years old and cannot be named as a victim of sexual abuse, included $485,400 for loss of earnings.Gadd could not be reached for comment. Earlier this year, he lost a bid to be released from prison on parole.Gadd was first jailed in 1999 for possession of child pornography and later moved to Cambodia, but was deported in 2002 due to suspected sex offenses.In 2006, a Vietnamese court convicted him of committing obscene acts with two girls aged 10 and 11 and sentenced him to four years in jail.
