  • Met Gala 2015: Rihanna 'BANNED' Rita Ora From Her After Party?

    The reported fiery feud between Rihanna and Rita Ora was still burning at high temperatures at the Met Gala, as it's claimed that RiRi refused to invite Reets to her after-party at Up & Down nightclub because the two 'can't stand each other'. The two gorgeous singers are said to have more beef than a large mixed grill at Wetherspoons, with their similar music and fashion styles, and the fact that RiRi is now friends with Rita's former BFF Cara Delevingne apparently contributing towards their supposed feud. Doesn't help that both Rihanna, 27, and Rita, 24, are signed to Roc Nation.

    Nearly 300 years after the pirate Blackbeard's flagship sank off the North Carolina coast, a shipwreck-hunting company and the state are battling over treasure linked to the vessel — but they're fighting with legal filings, not cutlasses, and the treasure is $14 million in disputed revenue and contract violations. The Florida-based company, Intersal Inc., found little loot when it discovered the Queen Anne's Revenge almost 20 years ago, but it eventually gained a contract for rights to photos and videos of the wreck and of the recovery, study and preservation of its historic artifacts.
