    This sparked rumours of a feud between Maura and designer Scott Henshall – with The Sun exclusively reporting how the stylist to the stars supposedly made Maura wait three hours for her gown.
    A source said: “Scott was dressing Maura, Victoria and model Talulah Eve.
    “Maura’s gown was meant to resemble Paris Hilton’s chainmail dress from 2002.
    “Ultimately, it looked nothing like it and she wasn’t happy.”

    A source added to us: “Scott was also supposed to arrange a selection of shoes for her to wear, which he didn’t do.
    “He then left Maura waiting in her room alone for over three hours to go to help dress Victoria.
    “It was mortifying. Poor Maura was so patient and she ended up being totally stood up.
    “To add insult to injury, Victoria ended up leaving with a bag which was meant to be for Maura. It was a mess.
    “Scott’s team have repeatedly apologised to Maura but the damage is done. It was a nightmare.”
    Those around socialite Victoria on the night have claimed she acted like a diva too.
    One added: “Victoria wouldn’t travel with Maura or the others, even though that is what had been planned.”

    Kardashians’ most tone-deaf moments as Kim’s slammed for flashy festive tradition – including ‘forgetting $1.6m home’

    THEY’RE a filthy-rich family worth nearly $2billion, so it’s hardly surprising the Kardashians are sometimes accused of being ‘out of touch’.Some fans have gone so far as to accuse the wealthy clan of being tone deaf – with Kim Kardashian, 42, the latest to be slammed after revealing one of her Christmas ‘traditions’.
    Given their staggering wealth, it’s perhaps not surprising the Kardashian clan are accused from time to time of flaunting their privileged lifestyleCredit: Instagram/poosh
    Kim caused a stir recently when she revealed she has a pianist visit every morning to wake her kids up with Christmas songsCredit: Instagram/kimkardashian
    The reality star took to her Instagram stories to share a photo of a pianist playing in her living room.
    It was captioned: “It’s that time of the year… @philthekeys comes over every morning to wake my kids up by playing the piano while the mad morning rush is happening to calm their little souls and fill it with beautiful Christmas songs.”
    It’s not the first time – and no doubt won’t be the last – the Kardashian family, including youngest half siblings Kylie and Kendall Jenner, have come under fire for bragging about their privileged lives, as we reveal…
    ‘Get your f*****g a** up & work’
    Kim’s ‘advice’ did not go down too well with fansCredit: VARIETY
    Earlier this year Kim was slammed when she gave some pretty harsh career advice.
    ON KARDASHIANS
    Speaking to Variety, she said: “I have the best advice for women in business. Get your f*****g a** up and work… It seems like nobody wants to work these days.”
    She later tried to justify her comments by saying watching her momager Kris juggle work while raising a family had inspired her – which caused fans to further brand her delusional.
    She added: “I also feel like if people understood, that like yeah we grew up privileged and people don’t know the story of your [Kendall’s] dad [Caitlyn Jenner] and mom having to sell their house in the Hills because they couldn’t afford it and they had to move to an apartment.”
    Unsurprisingly the superstar faced huge criticism for her “tone deaf” comments – even presenter Jameela Jamil waded in.

    She tweeted: “I think if you grew up in Beverly Hills with super successful parents in what was simply a smaller mansion nobody needs to hear your thoughts on success / work ethic.” Ouch.
    ‘Forgotten’ $1.6m condo

    Few Kardashian fans can forget the gobsmacking moment momager Kris Jenner confessed she ‘forgot’ she owned a $1.6m Beverley Hills condo.
    In a confessional, Kris laughed: “I have a condo and my mom has one and my cousin has one and we all live nearby, but I kind of forgot it was there. Sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it?”
    Kris is joined at the home by daughter Khloe, who jokes: “I hope to be rich enough someday to forget I own a property.”
    The pair later discovered that the fridge in said property was fully stocked – with Dom Perignon Champagne.
    Kim’s Covid party

    Kim was slammed for bragging about her “conspicuous display of wealth” while on a luxurious 40th birthday tropical getaway – during lockdown in 2020. 
    While most people were unable to see their loved ones, the birthday girl boasted about how “privileged” she was in a series of family photos from a private island, admitting: “I realise for most people, this is something that is so far out of reach right now.”
    The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star wrote she felt “so humbled and blessed” and had been reminded of the “things that truly matter.”
    She added: “Before Covid, I don’t think any of us truly appreciated what a simple luxury it was to be able to travel and be together with family and friends in a safe environment. 
    “After two weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time.” Alright for some!
    Pricey 15 minute private jet trip

    It’s no secret and hardly surprising that the family travel in style with a fleet of private jets – however some trips have sparked outrage.
    For example, according to flight tracking websites, Kylie flew on her $72million dollar plane from Camarillo to Van Nuys, a journey which is under an hour to drive.
    That’s a distance of just 45 miles and a flight time of under 15 minutes.
    It’s also a total of 127 gallons of jet fuel used, and a full ton of CO2 emissions.
    The star also recently received backlash after travelling to the same location as Travis Scott – in separate private jets.
    THAT Pepsi advert

    Model Kendall, 27, came under fire in 2017 for the £40m Pepsi advert she starred in, which was dubbed tasteless and tone deaf for seemingly piggybacking on the Black Lives Matter movement.
    The commercial saw the model use a can of Pepsi to end a stand-off between police and a group of young protesters of all races.
    The ad was swiftly pulled, with the company saying: “Pepsi was trying to project a global message of unity, peace and understanding.
    “Clearly we missed the mark, and we apologise.”
    Controversial diet drink ‘easy work’

    The family owe a significant chunk of their wealth to launching their own products, but they also make a lot of money endorsing other brands too.
    Some of these have proven more controversial than others, with Kim and Khloe opting to promote controversial weight loss and detox teas and shakes.
    In a bid to justify the move Kim said: “If there is work that is really easy that doesn’t take away from our kids, that’s like a huge priority, if someone was faced with the same job opportunities, I think they would maybe consider.
    “You’re going to get backlash for almost everything so as long as you like it or believe in it or it’s worth it financially, whatever your decision may be, as long as you’re OK with that.”

    Mother-of-two Tanja Bage, a former theatre performer from Leeds, had her voice box removed after a throat cancer diagnosis in 2020, and now speaks through a speech valve.
    But through modern technology, Martine’s vocals were transmitted from a recording studio into an Electrospit, a smart instrument, which Tanja was wearing around her neck, and the vocal samples travelled through her throat, allowing her to shape the sounds into Silent Night.
    The performance, which took place on Mia’s doorstep, was the first time ever that the Electrospit has been used to perform a duet with two people in separate locations, thanks to Vodafone’s 5G.
    Martine said she was “blown away” by the technology.

    “To be able to partner with Vodafone to make Tanja and Mia’s Christmas super magical has been a real privilege for me,” the star said.
    “I’ve been so inspired learning about the laryngectomy community and hope this project will educate the wider public on how to help remove any stigmas those with diverse voices may face.”
    Martine wore a pair of skinny jeans for the occasion with a leather and fur look coat.
    The Love Actually actress Martine previously revealed how she had transformed her figure and confessed that she was a fan of the Cambridge Weight Plan diet.

    She said: “I’ve spent so long fighting to feel healthy again, I didn’t want to do anything too drastic that was going to make me feel lousy.
    “But after having Rafferty I found it so tough to lose my baby weight and that does start to affect your self-esteem.”
    The Perfect Moment singer, who gave birth to son Rafferty in 2015, added: “My loss was a tiny bit slower than the average person but to be honest I expected that as many diets/food plans didn’t work for me at all as the lymes disease and me can really play havoc with how your system works.”
    Martine was diagnosed with ME, otherwise known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, in 2011 and later revealed she had been diagnosed with Lyme disease.
    She also suffers from Fibromyalgia, which causes pain all over the body.

    FOR decades, there were few hotter tickets in Hollywood than an invite to the Playboy mansion.Hugh Heffner dropped $1.5million on the infamous 5.2-acre property in Los Angeles in the 70s and spent two years turning it into a party palace that welcomed some of the biggest names in showbiz.

    This week, it was claimed that former glamour model Katie Price took so many drugs during her time as a Playmate that health officials had to be called after she passed out. 
    The claim was made by Stacey Burke who lived in the mansion with the reality star over two decades ago in 2002. 
    Katie, 44, known as Jordan back then lived in the mansion for six weeks shortly after the birth of her first son Harvey. 
    Its not the first time secrets of the house have been uncovered – here we take a look back at some of the wildest stories involving celebrities at the Playboy Mansion.

    Former Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson, 55, has the distinct honour of being the celeb with the most Playboy covers at 13. 
    In an interview with Piers Morgan, Pamela opened up about how wild the mansion parties would often get. 
    She said: “Everyone was naked in the grotto and the girls were downstairs, and they all went upstairs. 
    “I followed them upstairs. I thought ‘What could be going on up here?’ Seven girls, one at a time with Hef.

    Dita’s strip tease

    In 2003, Hugh Hefner hosted the launch of Spike TV at his Playboy mansion.
    The channel, which at the time was primarily aimed at men, knew an association with Playboy could bring in numbers.
    At the party, guests were treated to a special performance by burlesque dancer, Dita Von Teese, 50.
    For her special performance, Dita stripped off and “danced” in a giant martini glass.
    You’re barred!
    In his days as a world champion, Mike Tyson was used to knock outs – but it was a lock out when he made a faux pas at the mansion. 
    The 56-year-old icon apparently fell asleep at one of Hugh’s infamous movie nights, to the annoyance of the tycoon. 
    He was reportedly barred from the mansion and never had a movie night invitation sent his way again.
    Tyson wasn’t the only one. In 2009, actor Jason Statham, 55, was allegedly thrown out of the mansion wearing only a bathrobe.
    He was apparently marched out by security after refusing to pose for pictures with models at Hugh’s annual Midsummer Night’s Dream party.

    Jack’s ‘secret tunnel’
    In the 70s, there were rumours that regular Playboy guest Jack Nicholson, 85, had a secret tunnel to the mansion.
    It was alleged that the tunnel run from his own house all the way to Hugh’s home for quicker and easier access.
    This was also said to be a sly way for the Hollywood superstar to avoid being seen by members of the paparazzi.
    Although many believed this was just a rumour, an investigation by Playboy’s own website appeared to fuel the flames.
    It uncovered old blueprints that suggested tunnels were at least considered, with one staffer remarking: “I heard they were closed up sometime in 1989.”
    Beatles art attack
    John Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono had a good relationship with Playboy – they even did an interview with the magazine in 1981.
    But during one boozy night, it appeared the rockstar was not very amused with its art collection.
    According to reports, the late Beatles legend had too much to drink and put out a cigarette on an original Henri Matisse painting.
    Interestingly, Hugh allegedly didn’t take too much offence to what happened, had the painting restored, and did not have John banned.
    ‘Hollywood orgies’

    Jenna was one of the Playboy boss’ many girlfriends and a former bunny herself. 
    Last year, she recalled a Halloween do at the house which required her to get totally naked for her body to be covered in paint. 
    She also claims she saw a number of Hollywood’s elite having sex all over the house. 
    “In the grottos, in the pool, I even saw one couple doing it in the pumpkin patch. I couldn’t reveal any names of who was getting down and dirty. 
    “You can assume there were famous musicians, politicians, and celebrities there. It was so much fun. If only walls could talk.” 
    The Elvis Room 
    Elvis Presley is said to have visited the Playboy Mansion on a number of occasions in the 60s and 70s. 
    It’s even been alleged that during one stay, the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll had his own slumber party with eight Playboy bunnies. 
    In memory of this, Hugh, who died at 91 in 2017, reportedly decided to call the space of the house where the legendary singer stayed “The Elvis Room”. 
    Quentin Tarantino

    Movie director Quentin Tarantino filmed some of the scenes of his film Once Upon A Time in Hollywood at the mansion.
    He enjoyed the experience so much that he even decided to host the afterparty of the movie’s premiere there in 2019.
    During the party, he was pictured with busty women dressed as The Bride from Kill Bill, one of his most successful productions.
    A-list ‘kiss’

    She said: “I did not think he would do this to me. We had a lot of history and he knew the effect this would have on my life.
    “I didn’t think he would do that as we were on good terms. I trusted him.”
    Bear is accused of making at least £2,181 after uploading the CCTV clip of them having sex in his garden to the X-rated website.
    He doubled the cost of subscribing to his profile after posting the “revenge porn” video, the court heard.

    Georgia added: “It upset me. It ruined my life.
    “After this happened I was in the worst state of my life. I can’t explain the shame. I didn’t want to leave my room.
    “Instead of apologising, he put his subscription price up from £25 to £50.”
    Asked if she wanted a break from the witness box by defending Gemma Rose, Georgia said: “I’m fine, sorry.”
    Most read in Showbiz
    The pair had known each other since 2012 but started dating in 2018.
    Georgia, 27, told the court: “Bear used to say he was in love with me in real life and on the show.
    “You could say it was casual but it was pretty intense as well.
    “I did have a lot of love for Bear when we were filming together but I never once thought we would have something in the real world.
    “I never looked at him as someone who could potentially be my boyfriend.”
    Georgia claimed she was also upset when Bear, 32, “slept with someone else in our hotel room and locked me out of it” before also kissing her best friend at her clothing launch.
    But in August 2020, the on-off couple had lunch and drinks before going back to his sunbed shop where they had sex.
    They then went to his home in Loughton, Essex, to play cards while having more drinks in his garden, where CCTV recorded them having sex again.
    Ms Rose said: “You’d had sex earlier that day and that was just a natural continuation of that, wasn’t it?”
    Georgia replied: “Yes. But I didn’t for a second have any idea there was CCTV in his kitchen or garden where we were having sexual intercourse.
    “It was initiated by Bear but it was consensual. He was leading. I was drunk and obviously not thinking it would come to anything like this.”
    ‘REVENGE PORN’
    He airdropped Georgia the footage afterwards without her asking.
    Georgia admitted they watched it together, saying: “At the time, I didn’t take it as seriously as I should have.”
    She told him to delete it and Bear said he had.
    But she then claimed she saw him send a video to a friend on WhatsApp when they were in bed that night.
    Prosecutor Jacqueline Carey KC said 273 people paid 9.99 US dollars (£8.15) to watch it, in November 2020.
    Georgia warned Bear about revenge porn, telling the court: “I used those words because I wanted Stephen Bear to be clear what would happen if he shared that video.
    “I made it clear to him and his brother that I would go to the police if it carried on.”
    The Towie star’s mum subscribed to Bear’s OnlyFans after Georgia called her telling her about the video, which was also seen by her younger siblings.
    Asked about the video being uploaded to the subscription website, Georgia told jurors: “It’s brazen and he knows what he’s done.
    “That’s so stupid on his part and evil. It was on their for a month. His main verified account that he uses every day.
    “I’ve seen the promotion when he puts me at 50 per cent off. I’ve seen the screenshots.
    “I’m hurt, upset and ashamed. I deserve justice for what I’ve been through and he deserves the consequences.”
    In a series of messages read in court, Georgia told Bear “I’m getting you nicked” and “you’re going to go to prison for this Bear”.
    Her mother Nicola Harrison, who was her daughter’s manager at the time with access to her Instagram and business emails, said Georgia phoned her about the sex tape on August 3, 2020.
    She told the court: “She told me that there was a video.
    “She was upset but she said he promised her he would delete it.
    “She was tearful. She was crying. She said she didn’t know she’d been filmed.
    “She said he’d sent it to someone in front of her so she asked him to delete it so he said he’d unsent it and promised her he’d deleted it.
    “She thought it had gone. She thought it was the end of it.”
    ‘SHE THOUGHT THAT WAS THE END OF IT’
    Nicola next heard about the footage in October when Georgia told her people were saying they’d seen the video and she was going to reach out to his brother Danny Bear.
    In December, Georgia was in Dubai when people – some from the US – contacted her saying they too had seen the clip.
    Nicola added: “She said it must have been online and it wasn’t just people showing it. She said she was going to put something on her Instagram asking if anyone knew where it was.”
    There were 10 replies to her business email, which Nicola operated, on the first day before around 20 more came through the following week.
    One email on December 7 showed screenshots advertising the video with the caption: “Morning everyone, can’t wait for you to see me f*****g in my garden. Here’s a sneak peak. Dropping tonight.”
    Nicola told prosecutor Ms Carey: “I subscribed to his OnlyFans account for $15. It started and then I just didn’t watch it.”
    She went on other pornographic websites to find out if it had been posted elsewhere while Georgia tasked an ‘ethical hacker’ with removing it.
    Matthew Redden, an online enforcement analyst who removes internet content, was WhatsApped by Georgia on December 7 who told him the video was on PornHub.
    He said in a statement read to court: “Due to the nature of the case, I did not charge Georgia for my services.
    “Later that evening, I sent the information to PornHub required for removal. This was subsequently removed within 24 hours.”
    He also found Bear had increased his OnlyFans subscription prices from $20 to $50 and the video was on online forums Telegram and LPSG.
    Bear was arrested around 6am after returning from Dubai at Heathrow Airport on January 15 last year.
    Officers waited for the plane to touch down before flight attendants said he could leave first.
    PC Stephenson said: “Bear went to the toilet and after about five minutes of waiting, he exited.”
    STAR ARREST
    An officer asked ‘where is your phone’ to which he responded ‘it’s in my suitcase’.
    Bear, wearing a bright orange puffer jacket, yellow tracksuit and gold watch and chain, said “It’s my birthday man,” when cautioned and searched.
    He was escorted through passport control to the baggage area. Officers checked every bag until a large pink suitcase with Bear in big writing came round on the carousel.
    PC Self searched the case for a mobile but no electronic device was inside.
    Bear was booked in at Harlow custody where a strip search saw an iPhone sim card removal key fall out of his jogging bottoms.
    Bear answered “no comment” to some of the detectives’ questions, again saying: “It’s my birthday today.”
    Admitting to sending the footage to Georgia, Bear told detectives: “I put in a good performance. So yes, I sent her the whole thing there and then.”
    When told he was being investigated for voyeurism, Bear replied: “What does that mean?”
    In a follow up interview on March 8, police questioned whether he was using his account when it signed up to Gemma Lucy’s OnlyFans and fellow Big Brother contestant Chloe Khan’s page on November 8, 2020.
    He said: “I could have a mad twin brother.”
    Bear denies voyeurism and two counts of disclosing private, sexual photographs and films.
    The alleged offences, which both carry a maximum two-year sentence, took place between August and November 2020.
    He wore a grey suit in the dock while his girlfriend Jessica Smith was sat in the public gallery in a black ensemble.
    The Celebrity Big Brother winner yesterday arrived at court in a luxury Rolls Royce with girlfriend Jessica Smith wearing a pink suit and fur jacket.
    Bear, from Walthamstow, East London, worked as a roofer before making it as a reality TV star.
    He first appeared on Shipwrecked: The Island in 2011 before re-emerging on Ex on the Beach in 2015.
    Since then, he’s been on CBB, Just Tattoo of Us and Celebrity Ghost Hunt Live.
