BABY NEWS: Cardi B, 25, and Off­set, 26, wel­comed their baby girl, Kul­ture

Kiari Ce­phus, on Tues­day. Off­set’s real name is Kiari Ce­phus.

EN­GAGED: Justin Bieber,

24, con­firmed Mon­day on In­sta­gram he’s to wed model Hai­ley Bald­win, 21. They’ve been dat­ing a month but dated pre­vi­ously in 2015. LE­GAL NEWS: A film crew mem­ber says in a law­suit that Johnny Depp twice punched him on the set of the movie City of Lies, about the killing of the No­to­ri­ous B.I.G. Lo­ca­tion man­ager Greg “Rocky” Brooks is also su­ing the di­rec­tor and pro­duc­ers, say­ing he was fired when he re­fused to prom­ise not to sue.

NOT PREGNANT: Amy Schumer, who briefly sparked ru­mors af­ter an In­sta­gram photo with hands on her ab­domen and “@leesae­vansstyle and i are cookin some­thin Up.” She then posted a video sip­ping on a mar­garita clar­i­fiy­ing:

It’s a clothing line.

DAT­ING: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’s Chloe Ben­net, 26, con­firmed ru­mors she’s dat­ing disgraced YouTube star Lo­gan Paul, 23. Af­ter a Twit­ter fan asked why, she re­sponded: “It doesn’t make sense to a lot of peo­ple, but it doesn’t have too. He’s changed my life for the bet­ter and I’ve done the same for him.” PRES­I­DEN­TIAL NEWS: Dwayne “the Rock” John­son con­firmed he’d like to run for pres­i­dent but not right away. “Un­for­tu­nately I don’t see it hap­pen­ing in 2020,” he said at the premiere of Skyscraper. He then told Stephen Col­bert: “I need that thing, ex­pe­ri­ence. So if that were to hap­pen in 2024, 2028, I would have to go to work and get some ex­pe­ri­ence.” Well, who could have seen this com­ing? (We did.) For the fifth time since 2013, Chicago rap­per Chief Keef has can­celed a Tampa Bay con­cert. This time, he was sched­uled to per­form at a party dubbed “Bay­chella” to­day at the Ritz Ybor. On In­sta­gram, the venue said Thurs­day that the per­pet­u­ally legally troubled rap­per’s man­age­ment said his en­tire Florida tour was can­celed due to “travel is­sues.” Tick­ets can be re­funded at point of pur­chase. Fool us once, Chief Keef, shame on you. Fool us twice, shame on us. Fool us three times, is it something we said? Fool us four times, we’re kind of get­ting used to it. Fool us a fifth time, and c’mon, man, why even bother pre­tend­ing you’re ever go­ing to come to Florida in the first place?

Glass An­i­mals show off for bet­ter rea­son

Glass An­i­mals’ July 24 con­cert at the Ritz Ybor has been sold out for weeks. But it won’t be hap­pen­ing now — and the rea­son why isn’t pretty.
