Actor Charlie Sheen has also appeared in the entertainment news headlines; several unconfirmed rumours claim that the actor is HIV positive.

Finally, CBS have announced that they will pull down new episodes of their new series ‘Supergirl’. A statement on the TV network official website stated that another popular series ‘NCIS Los Angeles’ will also be pulled down. There is no official reason given. However, unconfirmed reports say the action was taken following the terrorist attacks in Paris.
Kanye West finally reveals that he is not cool with the Kardashians family for secretly filming Lamar Odom while still in hospital. “Even though Kanye loves his wife Kim Kardashian, along with the rest of her family, he is not happy with the violation of privacy,” reveals Radaronline.com, an entertainment news website.
Kanye has always been reserved and usually puts up with the KUWTK series, but not this time. He describes the latest stunt by the Kardashians as crossing the line, and believes that the show should have given the Lamar’s family some privacy.
It is not exactly defined if Kanye West is blaming his wife’s family or if he is pointing figures at the organizers of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians TV entertainment show. It doesn’t matter though because the filming involved members of the Kardashians family, who probably should have stopped the filming.
A source close to the Kardashian family reveals, “Kanye West was so furious and completely unhappy when he realized that cameras had been sneaked into the hospital.”
The source goes further and points out that, “Kanye really believes that her wife’s family hit a low filming Lamar Odom in hospital. It was insensitive for them to pull off the stunt.”
Kanye West has always been reluctant to make appearances on the show, and maybe finally this would be an end to his children appearing on the show.
According to the source close to the family, “Kanye West does not want his new baby and North to make appearances on the KUWTK show and that he would like them to grow up away from the limelight.”
“Kanye believes that Kim, Khloe and their mom is exploiting Lamar, and he feels that Odom should be left alone to recover. This stunt was completely out of place and simply outrageous,” states a renowned entertainment news article.
Kanye West is standing up for Lamar’s family members, and for his son and daughter.
