‘Glee’ Cast React To Being Dropped, Plus A Series Spin-off Rumour!
As we reported earlier this week, the names of the actors not returning to ‘Glee’ season four have been announced by series boss Ryan Murphy in an interview with ‘The Hollywood Reporter‘. Among those confirmed to be leaving are Chris Colfer, Cory Monteith and Lea Michele.
Chris Colfer, who received his second Emmy nomination for playing Kurt Hummel on Thursday, says while the news wasn’t unexpected, it was still shocking to hear it.
“I think it was something we all knew was coming, just because Ryan has said from the beginning that people would be graduating, It’s definitely not my choice, but I absolutely respect it and understand why it has to happen.”
He also told Access Hollywood that he heard the news “Yesterday on Twitter”!?!
And probably one of the most interesting stories to come from this weeks revelations is the rumour of a possible Glee spin-off! We have the full story over on rukkle TV here.

Beyonce Allegedly Fires Dad For Stealing From Her
TMZ has reported that Beyoncé fired her Dad Mathew Knowles after Live Nation Entertainment warned her that he “had stolen money on her most recent tour or otherwise taken funds that [he] was not entitled to”.
Following the warning, the 29-year-old allegedly had her Law firm conduct an audit to determine if money from her last tour had indeed been taken by her father and the firm involved concluded that he had.
The singer then terminated her professional relationship with her father in March, saying at the time that the decision was amicable. However, in new legal papers obtained by TMZ, Mathew explains his version of events and denies the accusations made by LNE and Beyonce’s lawyers. He has also requested that a judge give him the right to question various LNE staff, to determine how they came to the conclusion he was stealing from his daughter.
