Nikola founder sues Utah businessman for defamation over tweets about women

Nikola founder Trevor Milton has sued a Utah businessman for defamation, accusing him of a “malicious campaign to harass” and discredit the billionaire by publicly accusing him over Twitter of sexually abusing women, according to the lawsuit filed Monday.

David Bateman, the founder and CEO of software company Entrata, started tweeting about Milton in late September, posting screenshots of conversations he allegedly had with women who said Milton tried to sexually assault them or propositioned them for sex with other men. In some cases, Bateman posted screenshots from women of conversations they had with Milton. One showed Milton allegedly offering to pay a woman $2,000 to “hook up” with a guy in Las Vegas if he could pick out the man. 

The nine-page lawsuit filed in Utah federal court says Bateman “engaged in a malicious campaign to harass and defame Mr. Milton, using Bateman’s Twitter account to publish a series

The Best Black Eyeliners and Eye Shadows to Shop Now

As the threat of a second lockdown loomed in Paris this week, there was little in the way of statement makeup at the COVID-safe outdoor presentations and in the virtual videos that replaced the city’s traditionally packed show spaces. Faces were kept bare for the most part, with one notable exception: Black eyeliner got plenty of traction.

It’s no coincidence. Throughout history, eyeliner has been many things to many people, helping us express a range of era-specific characters. Very few makeup staples can so seamlessly skew sleek and elegant, à la a classic ’60s-era cat eye, and simultaneously subversive in homage to the ’80s-era punks, goths, and the New Romantics, with their messy, kohl-rimmed eyelids. In the shadow of an unusual spring collections season, makeup artists seem to be gravitating toward these humble pencils, pens, and pots for their ability to telegraph all the feelings of the coronavirus era—and offer

Cynthia Bailey’s Wedding to Mike Hill: Face Masks by Jill Zarin

The big day is almost here: Cynthia Bailey and Mike Hill will officially be tying the knot on October 10, 2020. With the ceremony soon approaching, The Real Housewives of Atlanta bride-to-be is taking safety measures to help protect her guests during the special occasion. 

In a recent interview with Extra, Cynthia shared that she and Mike will be putting several safety precautions into place at their ceremony, including conducting temperature checks and requiring guests to wear masks and face shields. And she’s getting help from a familiar face. 

Cynthia enlisted her pal, The Real Housewives of New York City alum Jill Zarin, and her daughter, Ally Shapiro, to make face masks for her nuptials. As you may know, the RHONY mother-daughter duo started face mask company Masks by Jill & Ally amid the ongoing global pandemic, which has become very popular for its tie-dye designs.

Mel Reid hopes to keep the party going at Women’s PGA

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. (AP) — Mel Reid can be excused for feeling a bit sluggish when she woke up for a practice round at Aronimink. The fatigue carried over to the point where she wanted to blow off practice later in the day.

Winning a tournament — as Reid did Sunday at the ShopRite LPGA Classic for her first LPGA Tour title — can take a lot out of a player.

Reid soaked up the championship party, from leaving the course drenched in champagne to turning her Waterford crystal trophy into a keg and chugging beer out of it with caddie Ryan Desveaux.

Philly just might have to extend last call at McGillin’s.

“We obviously partied quite hard on Sunday,” Reid said on Wednesday. “Des, more than me. I was trying to be a little more sensible.”

For good reason. Reid, a 33-year-old from England, is among the contenders to

Everything You Need to Know

Ever look at pictures of a wedding and find yourself blown away by both the details of the space and the intimate, romantic vibe of the event? You have uplighting to thank for that. Though uplighting isn’t a standalone solution for making a reception pop, it is an integral part of the overall lighting design package that will emphasize your décor elements and bring out the beauty of your venue.

What Is Uplighting?

Uplighting is the placement of individual light sources at the base of architectural details or points of interest, typically around the perimeter of a space, to draw attention to those details.

“From a lighting design standpoint, uplighting is the first brush stroke in event design,” says event designer Brian Toner. “Done properly, it gives a sense of depth and background to your photos and videography.”

Before Pence And Harris Debate, Revisit Vice President’s Comments On Women

The internet has plenty of jibes about Vice President Mike Pence debating Senator Kamala Harris, and many of those jokes stem from comments he made over a decade ago. So what did he say about women and married men? Let’s revisit those quotes before their Wednesday night VP debate

In 2017, The Washington Post published a profile on Karen Pence, the Vice President’s wife, and referenced a 2002 article in which the now-VP told The Hill “that he never eats alone with a woman other than his wife and that he won’t attend events featuring alcohol without her by his side, either.”

He called it “building a zone around your marriage.”

“If there’s alcohol being served and people are being loose, I want to have the best-looking brunette in the room standing next to me,” Pence reportedly said of his wife.

Critics took issue, not with his loyalty to his

Bruins second-round pick Mason Lohrei describes playing style, where he can improve

B’s 2nd-rounder Lohrei describes his game, where he can improve originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

With their first selection in the 2020 NHL Draft, the Boston Bruins took 19-year-old defenseman Mason Lohrei.

Lohrei, taken at No. 58 overall, is a Wisconsin native who stands 6-foot-4, 200 pounds. He last played for the Green Bay Gamblers of the USHL and is committed to play at Ohio State.

After seeing his NHL dream come true, Lohrei spoke with reporters about what he brings to the table as a player.

Bean: Ranking the Bruins’ best trade assets

“I’d consider myself a two-way defenseman, pretty skilled. I take a lot of pride in how I defend, how I defend the rush, how I defend in my own zone, shutting things down and making good breakout passes to the forwards,” Lohrei said.

“But then once that happens, then the fun stuff begins. I get

Cynthia Bailey Teases Wedding Plans Amid Pandemic

It was a decade ago that Cynthia Bailey walked down the aisle in her first wedding and said “I do” to Peter Thomas (the wedding was, of course, featured on RHOA; they divorced in 2017). And with her wedding to Mike Hill just days away (October 10, to be exact), The Real Housewives of Atlanta bride-to-be revealed how she feels going into marriage No. 2.

“I feel just as excited and optimistic as I did leading up to my first marriage. What’s different is that I’m different. I’m older, I’m 53 years old. I’m wiser. The only way to learn how to be a wife is to be one, and that was my first experience. I now know what I want and what I don’t want in a relationship, in a marriage,” she told Page Six in a recent interview. “For years, I said very publicly that I’d never
