Paul Allen

Paul Allen, the multi-billionaire who co-founded Microsoft alongside Bill Gates in 1975, died on Monday afternoon at his home in Seattle.

He was 65 years old.

Allen, who was worth around $20 billion around the time of his passing, lost his battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a disease he announced had returned two weeks ago.

“Some personal news: Recently, I learned the non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma I battled in 2009 has returned,” Allen Tweeted on October 1, addingat the time:

“I’ve begun treatment & my doctors are optimistic that I will see a good result. Appreciate the support I’ve received & count on it as I fight this challenge.”

The wildly successful businessman’s Vulcan Inc. confirmed the sad news today, writing on Twitter:

It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of @PaulGAllen, our founder and noted technologist, philanthropist, community builder, conservationist, musician and supporter of the arts.

All of us who worked with Paul feel an inexpressible loss today.

Allen’s sister, Jody, also released a statement.

She said Paul was “a remarkable individual on every level,” adding in full:

While most knew Paul Allen as a technologist and philanthropist, for us he was a much-loved brother and uncle, and an exceptional friend.

Paul’s family and friends were blessed to experience his wit, warmth, his generosity and deep concern.

For all the demands on his schedule, there was always time for family and friends.

At this time of loss and grief for us – and so many others – we are profoundly grateful for the care and concern he demonstrated every day.

Allen and Gates were both college dropouts.

They came up with the idea for Microsoft in Albuquerque, designing software together for the nascient personal computer revolution.

Microsoft moved to Bellevue, Washington in 1979.

He was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 1983 and resigned shortly thereafter, but still was an active member of the board …read more

Jenelle Evans Attempts to Get David Eason Re-Hired Amidst Abuse Allegations

David eason picture

It’s been almost a year since David Eason was fired from Teen Mom 2, and saying he hasn’t been missed by viewers would be a massive understatement.

Judging from reactions on social media, most TM2 fans are glad to be rid of David, and they wish Jenelle would follow him out the door.

Evans, however, remains committed to her goal of forcing MTV to rehire her husband.

Needless to say, that campaign is going very poorly so far — especially since Jenelle couldn’t have picked a worse time to try and rebuild David’s public image.

1. A One-Income Household

Jenelle’s motives for trying to strongarm her MTV bosses into rehiring David are quite simple. After all, it’s not like she’s the type to selflessly accept the role of sole breadwinner.

2. Doubling Down

Jenelle earns upwards of $300,000 for each season of Teen Mom 2. David was never paid nearly that much, but no doubt his income served as a nice supplement to Jenelle’s.

3. Even Angrier Than Usual

Jenelle is currently filming the upcoming season of TM2, and she’s made no secret of the fact that she’s very pissed off by her husband’s continued unemployment.

4. One of Her Famous Rants

Jenelle recently bit the hand that feeds her in a major way, unleashing a full-blown social media rant against Teen Mom 2 producers.

5. Boring, Boring, Boring

Jenelle informed fans that the show’s new season will be painfully boring, largely due to the absence of Eason.

6. Really Going In

It seems Jenelle’s bosses aren’t crazy about her attempts to torpedo ratings, but she’s showing no signs of holding back …

Bill Cosby, Enraged, Fires Yet Another Attorney from Appeals Team

Bill Cosby in Action

Bill Cosby is in prison at last. But he doesn’t intend to stay that way.

While Cosby furious compares #MeToo literal terrorists, he has saved some of that anger for his attorneys.

He’s reportedly fired one of his lawyers

RadarOnline reports that Bill Cosby has fired attorney Joseph Green from his legal team.

Green was the lawyer who represented him during the sentencing process.

Cosby is said to have made this decision while “in a fit of rage.”

“He’s had it,” an insider tells the tabloid about why Cosby chose dismissal.

The disgraced former comedian apparently believes that he can find other, more capable attorneys end his incarceration.

Court documents suggest that Cosby has hired two new lawyers out of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to assist with his appeals.

Cosby is said to have referred to his own legally blind status when using a common turn of phrase.

“Mr. Cosby said he can’t have the ‘blind leading the blind,'” the source reports.

“And” as a result, the source says, he “told Mr. Green to take a hike over the phone.”

So what brought on this termination? Apparently, Cosby wasn’t satisfied with Green’s work ethic.

The source explains that Cosby gave Green the boot “when he found out he wasn’t working around the clock to get him out.”

“Mr. Cosby told his legal team that the Pennsylvania groundhog could’ve done a better job,” the insider says.

Cosby, whose net worth has been estimated to be in the hundreds of millions, is hoping that his fortune can provide an incentive for other attorneys.

“He’s offering $250,000.00, cash,” the source claims.

This alleged offer is available “to anyone who guarantees his freedom and follows through.”

To be clear, we don’t think that Cosby means a literal jailbreak. He wants to walk out a free man, not a fugitive.

In April, Cosby was found guilty of three counts of …read more

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson: Will They Get Back Together?!

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson at the VMAs

Star-struck millennial heart throbs Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson made ALL the headlines with their whirlwind romance this year.

They were head over heels in love, no doubt about it. But all good things, as the saying goes, must come to an end in a matter of months.

No one saw it coming … okay, not the case.

We all saw it coming. But does that mean it’s over for good? Or is it a break that will do them some good, and lead them to a better place?

That’s the million-dollar question THG’s staff debates below. Read our hot takes on this hot couple and then hit the comments below!

NO by Hilton Hater

Neither Pete Davidson nor Ariana Grande were involved in THE MOST DRAMATIC ROSE CEREMONY of all-time… but their relationship has still followed the trajectory of those who get together on The Bachelor.

The comedian and the artist were never dating in a traditional sense of the term.

They went out. They goofed around. They got all silly on social media. They were almost, literally, a walking Saturday Night Live skit.

It was all cute and fun and we’re sure quite enjoyable for Davidson and Grande, but then real life interjected: Mac Miller died of a drug overdose.

Sources have all indicated that Grande (understandably) took the death of her ex-boyfriend very hard. Ariana’s been in a dark place for about a month now.

Such a trauma could spell the end of many relationships, but especially one such as this; one essentially built on partying and cosplay.

There’s simply no sturdy base here for anything as dramatic as a loved one’s death. Mix in the awkwardness of that loved one being Grande’s previous serious boyfriend… and here we are.

Davidson may be equipped with a 10-inch long penis, but he simply isn’t equipped with the …read more
