KSI is back in England following the press conference ahead of his fight against Logan Paul in August, just in time to announce the ticket sales and send another dig at Logan and his brother Jake.

The fight was already very highly anticipated, but the press conference has hyped the event even further, as the second YouTube boxing fight.

KSI also took part in the first fight, between himself and fellow UK YouTuber Joe Weller, which drew in over a million live viewers and has been viewed millions more on YouTube since.

With a global affair this time round (the Paul brothers are Ohio natives living in LA), plus the larger subscriber counts at around 60million combined, this event should shatter those viewing numbers.

But it’s not only the online viewers that count, as the organizers are looking to sell out the Manchester Arena for the fight and KSI has announced that tickets will go sale on June 22nd, at 6pm BST.

The press conference itself was generally a success at building up hype, but it was cut short after Logan Paul laid hands on KSI, trying to remove his bandana. A brawl broke out but was almost immediately split up by security.

And, after announcing the ticket sale info, he also discussed the press conference briefly, explaining how “calm” he is ahead of the big fight.

“For the record, Logan’s f***ed. I’m just letting him know. If that mother f***er thinks he can beat me, he’s got another thing coming.

It’s annoying, at the press conference I had such a long speech, I had so much to say, but my man had to piss me off. I get it, cool, I know I [was] getting under your skin, but doesn’t mean you have to touch me bro. Doesn’t mean you have to try to rip off my bandana – what are you doing bro?

Man, I’m so excited for this fight. With Joe, I was just angry and I just wanted to kill him. With Logan, I’m calm. I just already know what’s going to happen. I owe it to the people, I’m doing the world a favor. It’s just a shame I can’t fight Jake at the same time – they’re both just c***ts man”

Jeffree Star sued by Anna Nicole Smith Estate over lipstick shade name

Jeffree Star has been involved in several controversies throughout the years, but now the internet personality has found himself in hot water after being sued for using Anna Nicole Smith’s name in a lipstick shade.

Jeffree Star is a multi-talented internet personality, but he’s best known for being the founder and owner of Jeffree Star Cosmetics.

His cosmetics company reportedly sells more than 100 million dollars worth of products each year. It started with three lipstick colors and expanded into a whopping collection of many different make-up products.

Jeffree Star Anna Nicole Smith SuedJeffree Star is no stranger to controversy.

However, the company has recently been sued by Anna Nicole Smith’s estate for selling a lipstick named “Anna Nicole” in their Velour Liquid Lipsticks line. The estate inherited all the intellectual property rights associated with her name after she passed away in February 2007.

The estate believes the lipstick was clearly named after Anna Nicole Smith. They also claim it’s a very similar shade to the one she wore herself. What’s more, it seems like Jeffree Star Cosmetics never sought out permission to use her name on their products.

This prompted them to file a lawsuit, claiming Jeffree Star Cosmetics used Anna Nicole Smith’s “name, image, and likeness to advertise for sale and sell its different commercial products.”

The estate also claimed the company is selling a lip liner and eyeliner inspired by Anna Nicole Smith. It also happens to be one of their best-selling products.

If their lawsuit is successful, it’s very likely that they could be entitled to some or all of the profits Jeffree Star Cosmetics has made from selling the Anna Nicole lipstick, as well as the additional lip liner and eyeliner. 

Jeffree Star has not made an official response to the lawsuit yet. However, we will update you as more information arises.
