Are KENDALL AND KYLIE JENNER feuding? That's the tabloid buzz! It supposedly all started when Kanye West asked Kylie to walk in his Adidas show at New York Fashion Week in February and she complained about the outfit she had to wear. An eyewitness told OK Magazine that Kendall tried to comfort her, saying the weird clothes are just "art." However, it didn't help, and the Jenner sisters have been fighting ever since. Kendall thinks it's grotesque that Kylie has had so much work done at her age, including butt injections and jaw surgery, and Kylie is jealous of Kendall's modeling career. They also say Kylie even pulled a knife on Kendall. However, the Gossip Cop website says the rumors are "all BS. They get along great."

This probably won't come as a big surprise, but that pregnant woman who was fired from her job as a Popeye's restaurant manager in Louisiana after she refused to reimburse them for the $400 taken in an armed holdup, is suing the company. Marissa Holcomb is seeking $5.5 million in damages from Popeye's. In a letter to the company her lawyer wrote, "Even though you have offered to give the job back to her only to save face after experiencing bad publicity, the damage from your egregious conduct has been done and continues as long as her extreme financial hardship forces her to accept your offer." They called the demand that she reimburse the stolen money 'obscene.'

Police in Naples, Florida have arrested 40-year-old David Durham in connection with a series of vehicle burglaries. Durham was caught on surveillance video smashing the window of one car and walking around a parking lot and attempting to open car doors.
