Sophie Simmons is married! The musician — who is the daughter of KISS rocker Gene Simmons and actress Shannon Tweed-Simmons — and her longtime love, James Henderson, tied the knot at a Los Angeles courthouse on Friday, exchanging vows in front of 50 friends and family members at her mother’s Malibu home on Feb. 22.

Adam Levine just got ripped off when a classic car dealer sold him a FAKE MASERATI. Adam did a vehicle swap in 2021 with a guy named Rick Cole.  He gave Cole two cars worth almost a million bucks, and in return, Cole gave him a 1971 Maserati Ghibli 4.9 Liter Spyder. Apparently, only 25 of these were made, and they’re worth about a million bucks. Unfortunately, Adam found out his wasn’t real when he had it looked at by an expert . . . and he claims that Cole knew that when he sold it to him.  So he’s suing.

Zach Bryan’s social media accounts vanished yesterday.  A similar thing happened earlier this month, and when they did come back Zach said it was because he needed to step away when his tour tickets went on sale. But this may have been caused by some interactions he had with his fans.  Zach tried to bypass Ticketmaster by using a lottery system.  He was thrilled with its success. Unfortunately, his fans weren’t.  Seems a lot of them tried to score tickets, but couldn’t, and they were so frustrated they whined about it on social media. Zach tried to reason with them, but eventually gave up and his accounts went dark. This didn’t set well with a singer named J.R. Carroll, who’s been opening on Zach’s tour and he plays in his band.  He hit up Twitter with a few choice words for those fans. “Respectfully, the way some of y’all act so entitled is genuinely so discouraging.  Like a bunch of spoiled little kids complaining they didn’t get what they wanted for Christmas.  Embarrassing.” Most of the replies to the post stuck up for Zach.  This one said it best . “People will never be happy.  There was zero chance everyone was going to get tickets, but at least everyone who did was able to NOT get ripped off.  The real ones appreciate everything you do.”
