Jared Leto Has Found Himself A New Harley Quinn — Who Is This Younger Mystery Girl?!

Jared’s got a new GF — No joke!

Jared Leto‘s hair might be green, but that’s not gonna stop him from pickin’ up the ladies!

That’s because the Suicide Squad actor was spotted out and about twice over the weekend with model Valery Kaufman.

Plus, we’re hearing that after they were spotted shopping for groceries, the pair linked arms on their way to dinner — definitely sounds like they’re dating to us!

While Jared and the Russian model are both in the entertainment industry, that might be the only thing they have in common, seeing as Jared is 43 and Valery was born in 1994…

But hey, if they’re having fun, that’s all that matters to us!

P.S. Who else could look that hot with Joker-green hair??

Chinx Might Have a Baby On the Way With a Queens Woman

As family and friends still mourn the loss of Coke Boys rapper Chinx, a report has surfaced saying that the late MC has a baby on the way with a woman who is not his wife.

Bossip reports that Patricija Muratovic of Queens, NY is eight months pregnant with a baby boy, and that Lionel “Chinx” Pickens is the father. Friends close to the mother-to-be claim she and the rapper were in a two-year relationship before Chinx’s death last month. Adding fuel to the fire, XXL has learned that Muratovic is registered at Amazing Registry with a posted due date of July 15, 2015.

Muratovic is just one of multiple women who’ve claimed to have been involved with the rapper before his death. Some have questioned whether Pickens and his longtime love Janelli Caceres, were ever legally married, though the 31-year-old MC raised a family with her in his hometown. Janelli and Chinx had two children together. According to reports, Caceres is aware of Muratovic’s pregnancy but instead of dwelling on Chinx’s past infidelity, she is focusing on honoring Chinx’s legacy and finding his killer.

Muratovic is the second woman within a week to be rumored to be pregnant with Chinx’s child; a few days ago, Bossip also reported that a stripper and novelist named Larrima Davis was in a long term relationship with the rapper and was expecting a baby. Davis posted to Instagram referencing an unborn child under a photo of the rapper calling it their last FaceTime conversation. And MStar News has also written that another of Chinx’s alleged girlfriends, Malika Haqq, posted a photo honoring the memories the two shared; Erica Mena, a family friend of the MC, came to Caceres’ side and defended the family. For her part, Caceres has spoken about how difficult the entire situation has proven to be.

Chinx was shot and killed in his car in the early morning hours of May 17 in Queens after a club appearance earlier that night in Brooklyn. He had been a key member of French Montana’s Coke Boys crew who had been active in the hip-hop scene since the early 2000s and was slated to drop new music this year. Chinx was laid to rest in a Queens ceremony on Tuesday, May 26.

Steve Weatherford On WFAN: Life Flashed Before My Eyes During Crash

NEW YORK (WFAN) — New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford is counting his blessings after a hellish commute to Monday’s offseason workouts.

Weatherford, traveling back to East Rutherford after welcoming a newborn daughter on the West Coast, says he crashed into the median on the N.J. Turnpike during the early morning hours, totaling his rental car. But he somehow escaped without major injury and later tweeted a picture of himself at the Giants’ practice facility.

Weatherford told WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” show that he hydroplaned after driving into “a pit of water” at about 65-70 mph.

“There’s no way that I would make it without an intervention from God,” he said. “It was unbelievable. As I’m spinning, my life is in slow motion, flashing before my eyes. It was the craziest thing to ever happen to me.”

Weatherford estimated that he was out of his car for only 90 seconds before another driver spun out in the same spot, slamming into his vehicle.

“I thought the guy was dead,” he said. “I sprint up to his car. I’m trying to open his door, it’s bent shut. I’m trying to open the passenger door, it’s bent shut. So finally, I like rip open the back-right door … I’m trying to gently hit this guy’s shoulder and trying to wake him up, because a third car could definitely, easily come and (hit) us.”

Weatherford said the N.J. State Police officers who responded to the scene drove him all the way from Exit 8 to his home in Hoboken.

“This happened at like 4 o’clock in the morning,” he said. “I got back to my house at like 5:15, still kind of shaky, take a shower and put on some warm, dry clothes and then I came up to work at the facility at like 6:15, had the doctors take a look at me.”

He said he suffered “a bunch of bruises, cuts” and “a couple of burns on my arm and a busted lip.”

“All things considered, man, (I’m) incredibly blessed,” said Weatherford, who added the other driver appeared OK before being taken from the scene in a stretcher. “If it was 4 o’clock in the afternoon instead of 4 o’clock in the morning, I’m dead meat. No question.”

The punter said he’d go out on the field and get some work in despite the ordeal. His teammate, tight end Larry Donnell, was on a plane that skidded off the runway at LaGuardia Airport in March.

“God saved me, and the NJ State Troopers delivered me,” Weatherford wrote on Instagram. “I’m so thankful to even be walking right now.”

Drake and Pharrell Will Be Involved in the Apple Music Launch

The digital music streaming arms race has been dissected to death by fans and observers, but of late, the conversation has wrongly suggested it a two-horse race. Jay Z’s fumbled power play, Tidal, has been analyzed and debated as a competitor to industry standard bearer Spotify. Now, another entertainment monolith threatens to end the fight before it really beings. Apple is expected to launch Apple Music, its rebranding and integration of Beats Music, next week at their annual Worldwide Developers’ Conference (June 8-12). According to a Billboard report, Drake and Pharrell will be involved in the launch, which will presumably aim to usurp Spotify atop the streaming market. At press time, it was unclear what role the artists would play with Apple, though Billboard cited a New York Post report indicating they might act as “celebrity DJs” for the service.

Perhaps most interestingly, the Billboard story also reports that Drake was scheduled to be one of the artists who appeared in the promotional videos that would serve as Tidal’s launch, but pulled out as little as two days before they were to be filmed. It is unclear whether Apple has secured contracts with the three major labels, a problem that has plagued Tidal and threatens to drain millions of dollars in exorbitant advance fees.
