Even if he wins, Gayle, his whole life has been ruined, toppled, damaged."

She continued, "And whether it's by his own doing or others, that's the fact. And the fact is that no matter what we do ― and we can walk out of that courtroom with a ‘not guilty' and walk him out onto those courtroom steps, and he never gets to be Harvey Weinstein ever again."

REAL LIFE INSPIRATION FOR J.LO’S ‘HUSTLERS’ ROLE WASN’T THAT IMPRESSED WITH THE FILM

The real life inspiration for Jennifer Lopez's role in Hustlers has admitted that she wasn't that impressed with the film. The real life strippers that were portrayed in the film are Roselyn "Rosie" Keo and Samantha Barbash -- who are played by Constance Wu and Jennifer Lopez respectfully. Keo and Barbash were New York City strippers who drugged their wealthy clients in order to use their credit cards to run up large bills at the strip club.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Barbash said about the film, "Everyone has been asking, ‘Did I see the movie?' So I thought, Why don't I just see the movie—because I knew I was going to have a lot of interviews about it this week. I wasn't really that impressed."

She continued, "I was impressed with Jennifer. She was incredible. Her body looked incredible. She had it down to a T, but it wasn't factual."

She added, "She had my birthmark that I have. I used to have a piercing on the top of my lip. She had it on the bottom. She had a tattoo on her finger. I had it on my wrist."

She also revealed that the film's emphasis on her friendship with Rosie was inaccurate, saying, "She wasn't a friend—she was a coworker… There was no sisterhood — it was business and that's it."

BARBASH LOVED CARDI B

One part of the film that she did enjoy? Cardi B! Barbash said, "I love Cardi. Her 10 minutes was a great 10 minutes… It's funny because, when I first heard that the film was coming out, said Cardi would have played me. Even though she is not an actress, she was in the strip club world and she gets it. She would have maybe played a better me. Not taking away from Jennifer. But just because Cardi was in the business."

According to Time, Barbash and Keo were eventually charged with two counts of conspiracy, four counts of grand larceny, two counts of assault and three counts of forgery. Both were sentenced to five years probation.

KEVIN HART SUED FOR $60 MILLION BY SEX TAPE PARTNER

Kevin Hart is being sued for $60 million by his 2017 sex tape partner -- and she has claimed that he and his friend conspired to record their sexual encounters. According to TMZ, Montia Sabbag has claimed in her new lawsuit that her sexual encounter with the comedian in a Vegas Hotel room was all planned by Hart and his friend TJ Jackson -- his friend who was later arrested for extortion.

Sabbag has claimed that Hart was motivated by getting publicity for an upcoming comedy tour and that is why he and JT hid the camera.

The suit claims that Hart allowed Jackson into the Cosmopolitan hotel suite so he could set up the hidden camera.

Sabbag is suing for intentional infliction of emotional distress and invasion of privacy.

KEVIN HART'S SEX TAPE PARTNER CHANGES HER STORY

Meanwhile, the site pointed out the fact that when the story first broke in 2017, Sabbag claimed that Kevin had no idea their sexual encounter was being filmed. At the time, she said she didn't want any money from Kevin, but wanted to find out who filmed the liaison.

Sources say that Sabbag's subsequent lawyer -- her third, recently made a secret financial demand to Kevin, asking for low six figures and Kevin's lawyer rejected it.

A source also told the site that Kevin has been working with the District Attorney for two years on the case. The source said, "Kevin is working with the D.A. a lot because J.T. f**ked him over." The source also revealed that Kevin has no plans on giving Sabbag a penny and there will be no settlement.

MICHAEL JACKSON ESTATE SLAMS ‘LEAVING NEVERLAND’ EMMY WIN

The estate said in a statement, "For a film that is a complete fiction to be honored in a nonfiction Emmy category is a complete farce.

JJ ABRAMS SIGNS MEGA-DEAL WITH WARNERMEDIA

After months of back-and-forth wrangling, JJ Abrams and his Bad Robot production company have signed a mega deal—estimated to hover around $250 million—with WarnerMedia. The deal includes film, TV, games and digital content. He and wife Katie McGrath lead Bad Robot together.

Last Fall, a number of media congloms, including Netflix, Apple and Disney, began competing for Abrams' loyalty, but WarnerMedia emerged as the leader quickly due to Abrams' and WarnerMedia's 13-year history. Of Bad Robot's current roster, three are at WarnerMedia's HBO: Westworld, Lovecraft Country and Demimonde, the first series Abrams has solely created since Alias.

This puts Abrams in the same league as Greg Berlanti ($400 million from Warners), Ryan Murphy ($300 million from Netflix) and Shonda Rhimes ($100 million from Netflix). Unlike Berlanti and Murphy, Abrams did not bring a backend to the deal.

He will honor his previous commitments, including Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which he is currently editing for Disney. He also has three shows in the works at Apple: the Stephen King adaptation Lisey's Story, starring Julianne Moore; Sara Bareilles' Little Voice; and the Jennifer Garner vehicle My Glory Was I Had Such Friends.

First, her sister Bella Hadid followed him on Instagram, then he showed up at her grandmother's funeral in the Netherlands and now, Gigi is helping Tyler look for apartments near hers in NYC.

And they talk all day long, a source tells E!: "Tyler has been looking at apartments that are in the same area as Gigi's in NYC. She suggested a few to him and he wants to be nearby. They are getting pretty serious and it's not slowing down. They text all day every day and see each other multiple times a week."

An insider tells E! that despite their original intentions, things are developing: "Neither of them really anticipated that it would turn in to what it has. For Tyler, it's still pretty casual, but they are spending a lot of time together and really like each other. Gigi asked him to come to the Netherlands and he agreed. He's a very supportive person and someone that's great to have around when you're going through something. He's rock solid and very kind. They didn't put too much thought into it. They are together a lot and she didn't want to go without him."

The source adds, "They aren't talking about the future or what any of this could become, they are just going with it. But he loves being with her and they are really clicking."

Bottom line: neither one is dating anyone else.
