George Washington’s hair found inside New York library book

Categories: celebrities

A New York state college said an inventory of its library’s archival collections led to an unusual discovery — a lock of George Washington’s hair.

Union College said archivists going through materials at Schaffer Library discovered the first U.S. president’s hair in an envelope tucked inside a leather book titled Gaines Universal Register or American and British Kalendar for the year 1793.

The envelope was labeled: “Washington’s hair, L.S.S. & (scratched out) GBS from James A. Hamilton given him by his mother, Aug. 10, 1871.”

James A. Hamilton was the son of Alexander Hamilton and his wife, Eliza Schuyler Hamilton. The book was inscribed to Philip J. Schuyler, brother of Eliza and son of Gen. Philip Schuyler, a friend of Washington’s.

“In an era when people frequently exchanged hair as a keepsake, it’s quite probable that Martha had given Eliza some of George’s hair, which in turn was given to their son, James, who later distributed it, strand by strand, as a precious memento to close friends and family members,” said Susan Holloway Scott, a scholar and author of the historical novel I, Eliza Hamilton.

Categories: celebrities

Beyoncé put to shame the woman who dared to brazenly flirt and touch her husband Jay-Z, according to the star’s new friend actress and comedian Tiffany Haddish.

In a preview for TV One’s UNCENSORED, the Girls Trip star recalled the moment Queen Bey shut down an actress who had put her hands on Jay-Z’s chest after his concert.

‘I was talking to Jay-Z for a little bit,’ Haddish recounted. ‘And there was another actress that was there who was also talking to Jay-Z.

‘[The actress] touched Jay-Z’s chest and Beyoncé came walking up like…’Biitttchhh!’ But, she didn’t say that,’ Haddish made clear.

‘But her demeanour, her body from the way she walked up on them said, “Get your hands off my man’s chest”.’

Haddish didn’t disclose the name of the actress, but hinted that a conversation went down between Bey and the unknown woman.

Lenny Dykstra says Charlie Sheen admitted to causing assistant’s overdose death

Lenny Dykstra says Charlie Sheen admitted to causing  assistant’s overdose death

In an explosive interview with The Hollywood Reporter, former Mets player Lenny Dykstra said Sheen casually confessed to being the mastermind behind the overdose death of personal assistant Rick Calamaro.

Calamaro, a nightclub owner who worked as Sheen’s right-hand man during the “Wall Street” star’s 2011 public meltdown, was found dead in his apartment in 2012 from what the Los Angeles County coroner ruled an accidental overdose.

Dykstra was in jail when Calamaro died, serving time for auto theft and lewd conduct.

When he got out, Dykstra reportedly asked Sheen, “What the f— happened to Calamaro?”

“You mean Dead Rick?” Sheen replied, according to Dykstra. “What f—ing happened is the mother—-r tried to blackmail me just like you said, wanted $5 million. I had him f—ing iced.”

Dykstra said Sheen bragged he had a hot dose — a lethal drug mix added to Calamaro’s stash.

Sheen’s lawyer Shane Bernard denied the claims to THR and challenged Dykstra’s credibility, citing the former MLB player’s “laundry list” of criminal convictions.  I’ve heard the guy on Howard Stern and he is truly vile and seems very much off his rocker. Still, I put nothing passed Charlie.

Timbaland claims a man is staying in his Miami mansion illegally

Timbaland claims a man is staying in his Miami mansion illegally

I’m fascinated by squatters.  How ballsy!

Timberlands been having trouble selling his Miami mansion, which was most recently on the market in late January for $3.39 million.

The hit-maker reportedly found a buyer in William Zamora, who was allowed to live in the home during escrow. However, the sale apparently fell through, and now Timbaland has apparently filed a lawsuit, claiming Zamora is staying in the home illegally.

According to news reports, Timbaland, whose given name is Timothy Mosley, has been attempting to sell the home since his recent divorce. Now, he argues, he can’t sell the home if there’s someone already living in it who refuses to leave.

Zamora reportedly countersued, claiming that he can’t buy the home because there are liens on the property.

Timbaland purchased the home in 2004 for $3,475,000. In January 2017 he listed the home for $4.4 million. Last summer, he cut the price to $3.39 million, where it remained until just last week, when the listing was mysteriously pulled from the market.

In case the home bounces back on the market, here’s what you need to know about what’s inside.

The 10,689-square-foot home on 1.51 acres has seven beds and five baths. The layout includes a living room with gas fireplace, a game room, formal dining room, home theater, den, family room with flat-screen TV, built-in wet bar, a room-to-room aquarium, chef’s kitchen, staff quarters and a three-car garage. Outside, there’s a pool, covered barbecue and a tennis court shared with a neighbor.

Apparently the reported drama around the home hasn’t cramped the 45-year-old’s style. He was recently reported to have purchased a pair of “sky homes” that will be combined in the luxe Aria tower, which is currently under-construction, in downtown Miami.

Things may be looking up for Timbaland, who recently released “Filthy,” a collaboration with Timberlake.
