The 40-year-old actor was photographed at Avra restaurant in Beverly Hills, California, on Monday night, Oct. 21, with rap mogul JAY-Z, Irv Gotti and others.

Rapper Drake is looking over his shoulders after a series of threats targeting his California home and OVO store.

Last week rapper Drake's Hidden Hills, California home and Los Angeles OVO store were vandalized. Well, a source tells Hollywood Unlocked that Drake's OVO store in Chicago was hit by bullets over the weekend.

Video footage obtained by HU shows the scene outside the Chicago store. A man is heard saying to the camera, "He's f-cking with the wrong ni--as. I don't do that" before producing a handgun and walking up to the store. In a second video clip, plywood covers the shot out window in the front of the OVO store.

According to published reports, the vandalism on the West Coast occurred after the Toronto rapper sent a private message to Don C's wife, Kristen Noel Crawley, on social media, asking her to intervene in his squabble with her husband.

A video making the rounds on social media last week shows the OVO storefront in Los Angeles covered in red spray paint. The message reads: "Leave L.A."

Drake's Hidden Hills mansion was also vandalized last week.

The morbidly obese rapper also tweeted Tiffany's photo, causing some of her 975K Twitter followers to rebuke her for putting the driver's life in danger.

"Jesus. This poor girl is going to get fired and then hunted down. Come on, Lizzo," tweeted one user.

Another Twitter user tweeted: "So you've publicly shamed someone who works in the service industry… you’ve nearly a million twitter followers… and you've now DMd their employer who will likely sack the individual you shamed publicly after accusing her of theft when you don’t actually know what happened."

Lizzo's followers were supportive after she went hungry, but many believe she went too far by posting the driver's name and photo on Twitter.

According to sources the driver plans to file a lawsuit against the "Juice" singer.

When contacted by MSN for comment, a Postmates spokesperson wrote: "As soon as Lizzo reached out, we looked into the matter and quickly resolved the issue. We apologize to Lizzo for any inconvenience."

A source told Page Six that the delivery person waited the allotted five minutes at the drop-off location but wasn't able to reach the "Juice" singer, so she left.

Following the backlash, the 31-year-old rapper issued an apology to her followers:

"I apologize for putting that girl on blast. I understand I have a large following and that there were so many variables that could've put her in danger. Imma really be more responsible with my use of social media and check my petty and my pride at the door."

Kevin Hart was discharged from a hospital and transferred to a residential rehabilitation facility 10 days after he underwent emergency back surgery.

Sources tell PEOPLE Hart was "in good spirits" after undergoing surgery to fuse his spine that was fractured in three places during a serious car crash on Sept. 1.

The 40-year-old Jumanji star was transferred to a rehab facility for intensive physical therapy to help him walk again.

He was spotted leaving L.A.'s Northridge Hospital Medical Center in a wheelchair before being loaded into a van for the trip to the rehab facility.

"I'm grateful to be alive," he reportedly told an unidentified source who spoke to TMZ.

The comedian was a passenger in his vintage 1970 Plymouth Barracuda when the driver lost control and the vehicle careened down an embankment on the night of Sept. 1.

Hart underwent emergency surgery on Sept. 2. He was said to be in extreme pain and on potent intravenous painkillers.

He is expected to spend up to 4 months in rehab before heading home to continue his physical therapy.

Hart reportedly pressured his team to downplay the seriousness of his back injury because he has movies and TV projects in production.

In a 911 audio obtained by TMZ, a woman believed to be Hart's wife Eniko, 35, told a dispatcher he couldn't walk and he was "not coherent" approximately an hour after the crash.

TMZ reports Hart’s car will be disassembled by the California Highway Patrol to assist in their investigation of the crash.

The results of their investigation may help change vehicle safety laws and require dealerships to install safety harnesses and airbags when selling vintage cars.

Your auntie received yet another demand letter from Janet Jackson's disgruntled ex-husband, Wissam Al Mana. I have a small folder of demand letters sent by him over the years.

The reasons vary from violation of his privacy rights to now violating the rights of his son, Eissa, for posting the toddler's photos on my blog.

He insists the 2-year-old's face should be pixelated even though there is no law in the United States that requires bloggers or publications to pixelate a baby's face in photographs.

His lawyer insists this blog is under UK jurisdiction since Wissam can see my blog from London, where he lives.

"The publication of the Photographs is a gross invasion of Eissa's privacy for which there is no justification," his lawyer writes. "The only reason for publishing unpixelated photographs of our client's son is the notoriety of Ms Jackson. But for that notoriety, you would not be publishing photographs of an infant in the circumstances depicted in the Photos."

A quick Google search brings up thousands of unpixelated images of Eissa Al Mana on thousands of blogs in America.

This smells like a personal vendetta.

John Legend has had enough of President Donald Trump insulting him and his wife on social media. The 40-year-old Capricorn clapped back when the president targeted the pop singer and his wife, former swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen, calling her "John Legend's filthy mouthed wife" in a tweet on Sunday night.

The drama started when Trump went on a lengthy Twitter tirade complaining about high-profile Democrats taking credit for passing new criminal justice reform legislation that he signed into law.

Trump tweeted: "When all of the people pushing so hard for Criminal Justice Reform were unable to come even close to getting it done, they came to me as a group and asked for my help. I got it done with a group of Senators & others who would never have gone for it. Obama couldn't come close. A man named @VanJones68, and many others, were profusely grateful (at that time!). I SIGNED IT INTO LAW, no one else did, & Republicans deserve much credit. But now that it is passed, people that had virtually nothing to do with it are taking the praise."

Then Trump singled out Legend and Teigen, who have been vocal in their criticism about Trump's policies.

Trump tweeted: "Guys like boring musician @johnlegend, and his filthy mouthed wife, are talking now about how great it is. But I didn't see them around when we needed help getting it passed."

Chrissy didn't take long to respond, writing: "lol what a pu**y a** b**ch. tagged everyone but me. an honor, mister president."

She then shared a picture of herself prepping a photoshoot prop board ahead of her daughter Luna's first day at the second year of her preschool, and captioned it: "Luna, remember the night before your first day of school? When mommy was making your sign and the pu**y a** b**ch president had his 9th meltdown of the day?"

Meanwhile, the "All Of Me" singer responded with a plea to Trump's wife, First Lady Melania Trump to spend more quality time with her husband.

"Imagine being president of a whole country and spending your Sunday night hate-watching MSNBC hoping somebody - ANYBODY - will praise you. Melania, please praise this man. He needs you. Your country needs you, Melania."

Legend then posted a GIF of Melania greeting a politician, which he captioned: "Ah yes, Melania is otherwise occupied. My apologies, @realDonaldTrump".

After the White House complained to Twitter.com, Chrissy begged Black Twitter not to send the hashtag #PresidentPussyAssBitch trending on the social networking platform.

She tweeted: "no guys no please do not make this trend, for it is my fight with PresidentPussyAssBitch, not yours!!!!!!".

Legend also pleaded with his followers not to make the hashtag trend.

"Please don't make this foul mouthed hashtag trend #PresidentPussyAssBitch".
