Brad Pitt and eldest son Maddox finally met in person on Wednesday for the first time since their now infamous plane altercation more than a month ago.

The two reportedly sat down with a therapist present as part of the temporary custody agreement between Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

  • On Tuesday, the FBI interviewed Jolie over the plane incident after the case was forwarded to the department by Los Angeles DCFS.
  • Jolie and her children were interviewed for hours by officials trying to determine if a formal investigation is necessary. The supervised meeting between Maddox and Pitt comes just after it was reported that the teen refused to join the first reunion between Pitt and his other five children.
  • However, it's now being reported that a therapist for the family also felt the timing wasn't right to bring Maddox along for the meeting.
  • Tensions are said to be so inflamed that he "doesn't really see himself as Brad's son."

Five suspects in the Paris robbery of Kim Kardashian appear to have been caught on camera fleeing the scene of the crime.

Three alleged thieves are seen pedaling away on bicycles and two others walking away on foot in the new CCTV security camera footage.

  • At least one of the bicyclists is seen carrying a backpack in the blurry video taken from about 50 feet away from the group.
  • The camera faces onto a street a few feet away from the entrance of the exclusive hotel. A timestamp on the video is labeled at 2:19 a.m. on October 3rd, shortly after the time Kardashian, reported being tied up and robbed at gunpoint of $5.6 million worth of jewelry.
  • Authorities previously stated that nothing was caught on surveillance cameras, as the hotel where Kardashian stayed is known for a lack of cameras placed in the surrounding area.
  • Police have not shared any information following the release of the new video.

Donald Trump has claimed for years that the Emmys are rigged, and Hillary Clinton referenced his claims during Thursday's presidential debate.

"There was even a time when he didn't get an Emmy for his TV program three years in a row and he started tweeting the Emmys were rigged against him" she said, referring to The Apprentice, which was nominated for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program in 2004 and 2005.

  • Trump responded, "Should've gotten it." Now, two actual Emmy winners have responded. Julia Louis-Dreyfus, winner of nine Emmys over the years, tweeted, "The Emmys are NOT rigged," and tagged Clinton, Trump, and her HBO show Veep.
  • Her former Seinfeld co-star, Jason Alexander, also joked, "Dammit! Seven losses! I KNEW the Emmys were rigged!"
  • The Television Academy also made it clear that their voting system is not rigged, and offered up a tweet explaining how it works.

RZA has responded to Azealia Banks' claim that he didn't defend her when she was 'attacked' by Russell Crowe.

"Azealia threaten to cut a girl in the face with a glass, then actually grabs a glass and physically attacks for no logical reason," RZA said on Facebook.

  • "Russell blocked the attack and expelled her from the suite." He said he was embarrassed by Banks' behavior since she was his guest.
  • "There was nothing funny about her behavior," he wrote. "Seeing is believing and I saw her behave as an obnoxious erratic individual and in the circles I frequent this was unprecedented. I was totally puzzles by her and thought maybe meds or booze or something had her zoned out."
  • RZA said the incident was not about race or gender, as Banks claims. "I have a wife, daughters, sisters and females on my staff so I protect women everyday. I pray none of them ever behave the way I witnessed Azealia Banks behaved that night."
  • As for the record deal that he was working on with Azealia, he said, "I’m not gonna pursue that with Azealia." He added that she tweeted about it prematurely and they were only in the negotiation stages.


RZA on what happened between Azealia Banks and Russell Crowe:

  • "Azealia was insulting a lot of people in the room. Then she started threatening this girl about she’s gonna smash her face in her glass. Russell said it wasn’t gonna happen . . . Then she actually grabs the glass, attacks. Russell blocks the glass and then it spills off in the room. We get outside the door, I get in between them. She’s trying to get back inside the room. Russell does spit at her. The spit didn’t get on her, if anything the spit would have got on me because I was in between them. She tried to get back in the room, I said, ‘Yo AZ, chill! You’re zoning out.’ I don’t know what overcame her. She attacked. It was like illogical to me."

RZA said he tried to talk to Azealia and made sure she got home safe, but he was embarrassed by her actions:

  • "I got love for AZ, but she definitely zoned out. . . I never heard Russell calling her no n-word. She was using that word all night. . . What about choking? .. . . RZA: "He didn’t choke her. He grabbed her but he didn’t choke her. ... I seen him pick her up though. I seen him carrying him out ... and I jumped up as well."
