Ellen DeGeneres protegee Greyson Chance DOUBLES DOWN on claim she ‘manipulated’ him

Ellen DeGeneres protégée Greyson Chance is doubling down on claims he was ‘manipulated’ by her despite insiders close to the former talk show host denying his story.

Chance, 25, initially accused the 64-year-old comedian of being ‘manipulative’, ‘self-centered’, and ‘blatantly opportunistic’ – alleging that she ‘completely abandoned’ him after signing him at the tender age of 12.

On Friday, he posted a now-deleted TikTok video saying that he stands by his version of events, saying: ‘I stand behind all of it. I’ve been wanting to tell this story now for multiple years and was repeatedly told not to.’

He even claimed that the alleged toxic behavior behind-the-scenes left him suffering from PTSD and trauma.

‘But the truth is, what you saw on TV and what was pitched out to the mainstream just wasn’t what was happening behind the scenes,’ he claimed, adding that what happened to him as a child was ‘not cool’ and led to ‘PTSD’ and ‘trauma.’

Chance continued: ‘I’m sure people will have a lot to say about the article and how I maybe appear ungrateful for [Ellen’s] efforts in the beginning, and the truth is that I am grateful for her giving me a start, but I’m more grateful to myself for the moments when I got dropped and everything went awry when I was a kid.’

Oklahoma-born Chance made the bombshell claims about his former mentor in an interview with Rolling Stone on Thursday, recalling how Ellen vowed to ‘protect’ him and ‘be there for him’ after flying him out to Los Angeles to appear on her show when he was a tween. However, he says that when his career flagged just two years later, DeGeneres ‘abandoned’ him and stopped returning his calls.

His allegations come just months after DeGeneres’ long-running talk show ended amid scandal and controversy over claims she created a ‘toxic’ workplace.

Sources close to the famous TV host then fired back at Chance’s allegations, insisting that DeGeneres went above and beyond in order to support him and his career – and accusing the singer of making opportunistic claims in order to promote his new album.

The sources noted that Chance was discovered by the show via YouTube in 2010, and appeared on The Ellen Show more than a dozen times, including after the timeframe in which he was dropped by his record label Interscope.

Addressing the singer’s accusations about DeGeneres’ cold treatment of him, the insiders told DailyMail.com that this was not the experience the Ellen team had with Chance, insisting that she had nothing to do with the downturn in his career, noting that sometimes, things just don’t take off.

The insiders added that Chance did not make any complaints during that time and continued to appear on the show to launch his new projects.

Chance is currently launching an album, and has taken this time to go after Ellen with opportunistic claims, the sources alleged.

In his interview, Chance said he was overwhelmed when DeGeneres sought to feature him on her program in May 2010, after seeing a viral video of him singing Lady Gaga’s hit Paparazzi.

‘We just couldn’t believe what was happening,’ Chance said. ‘We were so unsure of what we were getting into, and the person that helped cure all of that skepticism and chaotic energy was Ellen.’

Chance said that DeGeneres vowed she was ‘going to protect’ him and be there for him, saying, ‘We’re going to do this together.’ He added that Ellen ‘presented herself as a guardian and mentor’, and told his mother, Lisa, that she would ‘never have to work again a day in her life’.

During his appearance on The Ellen Show in May 2010, Chance performed Paparazzi for the host and her audience, before the TV host gifted him with $10,000 and a new grand piano.

Quickly, Chance’s career took off; he released a mini EP in October of that year and set off on a tour across the US, Canada, London, and Paris – during which time he says DeGeneres became increasingly ‘invested’ in his career, offering him consistent support via the phone and in-person.

However, as her ‘investment’ in his career grew, Chance claims the TV host ‘became domineering and way too controlling’, describing her as a ‘hidden eye’ that loomed over his career.

‘My whole week, my whole month, my whole year could change [with] one text message from her,’ he said. ‘That was horrible.’

He claimed that DeGeneres would make demands about his career – stating that she once made him re-record a pre-taped performance for a TV appearance because she wasn’t happy with what he and his team had done.

And – according to Chance – he wasn’t the only one who bore the brunt of DeGeneres’ ‘controlling’ behavior, with the singer highlighting one incident in 2011, when the TV host slammed his mother for failing to make him watch Justin Bieber’s documentary Never Say Never.

DeGeneres had secured Chance an advance copy of the movie, which saw cameras going behind the scenes during a then-teenage Justin’s global tour, and instructed him to watch it immediately – despite the fact that he was on tour at the time – so that he could model his own career on the chart-topper’s.

Chance said that when he didn’t watch the documentary right away because he was ‘exhausted’ from his performances, DeGeneres phoned his mother Lisa to ‘berate’ her, asking, ‘What type of mother are you?’

He added that DeGeneres then told him, ‘Disappointed isn’t even remotely what I’m feeling right now,’ in regards to the documentary issue. It was then that he says he realized he was nothing more than a ‘pawn’ in the talk show host’s ‘game’.

His mother Lisa also said that the TV host would ‘go through’ her son’s clothes and try and ‘control’ what he wore – including banning him from sporting leather because she was a committed vegan during the early years of his career.

Chance recalled how DeGeneres would ‘yell at stylists’ and ‘berate people in front of him’, stating that his former mentor – who left the air earlier this year, two years after she was hit with a furious toxic workplace scandal – ‘was just degrading to people.’

When Chance’s career began to lag in 2012, amid falling ticket sales and a failed album release, he says DeGeneres ‘completely abandoned’ him and ‘removed’ herself from his life – alleging that she wouldn’t even return his phone calls.

He was then dropped by Interscope and several members of his team turned their backs on him, including his managers, agent, and publicist.

Chance continued to make sporadic appearances on The Ellen Show – which he described as ‘a place of active trauma’ – however he claims that DeGeneres behaved cold toward him when the cameras weren’t rolling.

‘Whenever I would come on the show, it was such a fake smile,’ Chance said. ‘She wouldn’t even ask, “How are you doing? How are you holding up?” It was just like, “Here’s what we’re going to talk about. We’ll see you on there.”‘

Seven years after Chance says DeGeneres ‘abandoned’ him, he made an appearance on her show in 2019, when he opened up to the TV host about how a fan inspired his decision to come out publicly as gay in 2017.

‘She said, “How have you been?”‘ Chance said. ‘And that just killed me inside because I was like, “What do you mean how have I f***ing been? Where have you been?”‘

In the on-screen exchange, Chance said a moment that felt ‘cheap’ was when DeGeneres said she was proud of him after he publicly came out as gay in 2017.

He noted, ‘She had nothing to do with that’ and said he ‘hadn’t spoken to her in years’ at the time he went public about his sexual orientation.

‘That’s so messed up, that you’re now showing the world as if we’re so tight, we’re so good,’ he said. ‘And behind the scenes, you are this insanely manipulative person.’

Chance said he declined multiple invites to return to the series, including one that would have happened during the show’s last two weeks.

‘The first part of my career, I owe a lot of thanks to her and to that team,’ he said. ‘But the reason why I’m here today talking about an album, I owe f***ing nothing to her because I was the one that had to pull myself up. She was nowhere to be found.’

The singer is not the only one to have made allegations about DeGeneres’ behavior, however.

His public accusations about the talk show host come just over two years after she was hit with a bitter toxic workplace scandal that saw multiple former employees making claims about her negative behavior.

The controversy began in March 2020, when a comedian named Kevin T. Porter sent out a tweet asking people to share ‘the most insane stories [they had] heard’ about DeGeneres, while claiming that she was ‘notoriously one of the meanest people alive’ – despite always preaching about the importance of kindness.

Porter’s tweet was flooded with responses, many of which included explosive claims and allegations about DeGeneres’ behavior, with one user writing that the TV host’s former head writer, Karen Kilgariff, was ‘fired’ because she ‘wouldn’t cross the picket line’ during a writer’s strike.

Alleged hostility and mistreatment of writers proved to be a reigning theme in the thread, with one user claiming that her ‘friend’ who had written for Ellen ‘for two years’ was never acknowledged by her.

TV writer Benjamin Siemon also alleged that DeGeneres had an irrationally ‘sensitive nose’ and often picked ‘someone different to really hate’ each day on set.

‘Everyone must chew gum from a bowl outside her office before talking to her and if she thinks you smell that day you have to go home and shower,’ he wrote.

‘A new staff member was told ‘every day she picks someone different to really hate. It’s not your fault, just suck it up for the day and she’ll be mean to someone else the next day. They didn’t believe it but it ended up being entirely true.’

Then, in July 2020, Buzzfeed published a damning report about DeGeneres and her hit show, which featured quotes from several former employees who claimed that they had been mistreated on set by the TV host or her producers.

‘That “be kind” bull***t only happens when the cameras are on. It’s all for show,’ one person said. ‘I know they give money to people and help them out, but it’s for show.’

In August 2020, three top producers on the show – Ed Glavin, Kevin Leman, and Jonathan Norman – were fired as a result of the controversy. An ’emotional’ and ‘apologetic’ DeGeneres announced the decision in a call with more than 200 workers, sources told Variety.

They said the host – who has herself been accused of of fostering a ‘toxic environment’ – admitted on the call she was ‘not perfect’ and that the show’s leaders had not been sensitive to ‘human beings’ as they instead focused on running the show as a ‘well-oiled machine.’

DeGeneres further addressed the scandal during one of the final episodes of her talk show earlier this year, describing the controversy as ‘very, very difficult’.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter the comedian said she had originally planned to stop the show three years ago, just before the allegations of a toxic environment had come to light, but was talked into staying.

‘They talked me into staying a little longer and I did and it’s fine,’ Ellen informed the publication when asked if she had any ‘regrets’ about her decision to end the series when she did.

Referencing the scandal, the veteran star said: ‘There was a lot that happened during that time that was unfortunate but it is what it is — you go through stuff in life and you just keep learning and growing. That’s how I have to look at it.’

    Amanda Holden, 51, admits she confiscates ‘skimpy’ clothes away from her daughter Lexi, 16,

    She’s known for her risqué outfit choices and not holding back when it comes to fashion.

    But Amanda Holden, 51, has revealed it’s not quite the same story when it comes to her 16-year-old daughter, Lexi – admitting she ‘confiscates’ skimpy clothing from the teen.

    Jesting that she will ‘give them back in two years’, the Britain’s Got Talent judge ensures the ensembles won’t go to waste as she takes them to wear herself.

    Talking to The Sun, Amanda recalled taking a top from Lexi’s wardrobe that the teen was planning to wear to Reading festival.

    She explained: ‘There’s this sequinned . . . I wouldn’t even call it a bikini top. My daughter’s 16!

    ‘I went, “No, you’re not wearing that to Reading Festival, but Mummy can have it,” so Mummy’s got it, and waiting for a moment to wear it.

    ‘It just about covers the bits up top that you would expect it to cover, but it was definitely not for my daughter. In two years, she can have it back.’

    And despite the ban on her daughter’s wardrobe choices, the TV personality insisted that her family ‘love’ Amanda’s daring sense of style.

    She is also mother to ten-year-old Hollie, and shares the girls with her record producer husband Chris Hughes.

    The beauty explained that her husband Chris encourages her often bold choice of outfits and says ‘get your legs out’.

    Amanda has preivously recieved a slew of Offcom complaints for her outfit choices when judging Britain’s Got Talent – with plunging necklines and cut-outs getting her into hot water with viewers.

    But earlier this year, she insisted she would not tone down her outfits, adding that she enjoys wearing latex at the auditions and said she doesn’t think anyone should feel pressure to ‘dress for your age’.

    Not letting the naysayers get to her, Amanda told the Mirror: ‘I’m thinking more rubber – I enjoyed wearing latex in the auditions, so I’m thinking more latex, more sweating in the lives.’

    While she also told disapproving fans to ‘get over it’ after recieving backlash for cold weather meaning her nipples have been displayed through outfits.

    She explained to The Sun: ‘I’m just like, “Get over it”. It doesn’t seem to matter when you see boys’ nipples, so I just don’t get why it matters when you can see girls’.

    ‘It’s everyone else that makes the fuss about them.’

    Australian woman stunned by American dating tactic in Los Angeles

    An Australian woman on holiday in America was surprised when a man asked her out on a date by leaving a note on her car windshield.

    Shelby Mills, a former Love Island contestant from Queensland, said this type of approach would never happen Down Under, but admitted she respected the man’s ‘hustle’.

    The 28-year-old shared a photo to Instagram of the note, which was scrawled on a napkin after the man had spotted her in the neighbourhood in Los Angeles.

    The note read: ‘IDK [I don’t know] if you like black guys but your [sic] fine shawty. Let me wine and dine you, no BS. I work two jobs and I drive.’

    ‘Text me if your [sic] interested,’ he added before sharing his number, which Ms Mills covered with her hand.

    She captioned her photo of the note: ‘Hahaha finding notes on your car. I love America. Respect the hustle.’

    Ms Mills, an OnlyFans model, is on holiday in California after a sun-soaked summer in Europe followed by trips to New York and Alaska.

    She surprised fans in August by sharing a raunchy photo from her girls’ holiday in Las Vegas.

    She crouched down in a bathroom in front of a realistic store dummy that was positioned against the wall.

    At first glance, it looked as though Ms Mills was performing a lewd act as she wiped her mouth and looked over at the camera.

    The full-size dummy, which was dressed as a cowboy in a plaid shirt and jeans, appeared lifelike except for the hands and neck.

    Ms Mills captioned the suggestive snap, which was posted on her private Instagram account, ‘Vegas.’

    ‘P.S. that’s not a real guy for the Karens who snuck into my private page – you shouldn’t be here,’ she added, with a laughing emoji.

    Ms Mills is certainly no wallflower when it comes to social media, and is one of Australia’s biggest earners on OnlyFans.

    In September last year, she came clean about her cosmetic work, admitting to having undergone rhinoplasty, lip filler and Botox.

    ‘How much plastic surgery have you done besides rhinoplasty?’ one follower asked her on Instagram.

    ‘Just my nose, haven’t had any other plastic surgery apart from fillers,’ she answered.

    ‘I have filler in my lip and Botox, that’s about it, but that’s not plastic surgery, so.’

    Ms Mills shot to fame in 2018 on the first season of Love Island Australia. Since making it big on OnlyFans, she has bought a $2million waterfront home on the Gold Coast.

    Paris Hilton wows in plunging pink ‘Versace Barbie’ dress as she graces cover of InStyle magazine

    Paris Hilton took to Instagram to share that she is InStyle Spain’s October issue cover girl on Monday.

    Captioning the three-image carousel post, she wrote, ‘Versace Barbie my new @instyle magazine cover is out now! Thank you @MorelliBrothers for killing it with this beautiful shoot. I had so much fun and can’t wait to shoot again soon!✨’ Hilton proudly displayed the scintillating cover featuring her in a pale bubble gum pink body hugging minidress with a plunging neckline.

    The 41-year-old beauty modeled a silky $7395 Versace Medusa Corset Mini Dress that showed off her toned arms and flawless neckline.

    For the cover shot, the beauty accessorized the outfit with a golden hued oversized crystal floating choker with giant Swarovski gemstones.

    Her necklace matched her shiny bracelet and ring as she let her blonde locks fall naturally down her back with a part in the middle.

    The impressive magazine spread showed off her perfect physique in a series of looks, one of which is a striking image of the beauty posing on the side of the Eiffel tower.

    On Sunday, Paris shared a playful and festive video looking amazing in her favorite Halloween past costumes: rising pheonix, playboy bunny, sliving gladiator, raver furby, mrs. aquarius and tinkerbell.

    ‘October is finally here! ✨Halloween is my favorite time of year because I love playing dress up (and because I love eating candy) What do you guys think I should be this year? #ThatsHot #ThatsSpooky #SpookySzn’

    This comes after Paris announced she has spoken to multiple pet mediums in search of her missing dog Diamond Baby. The DJ revealed on Instagram she has enlisted the help of several professional clairvoyants to aid in finding her precious Chihuahua who has been missing since September 14.

    Bad news came on Friday when it was announced that the search for Diamond Baby had ended in tragedy as experts believe the small dog was snatched by a hungry coyote.

    Over the last two weeks, Paris has attended both Fashion Week events in New York and Milan, where she walked the runway for Versace’s Spring/Summer 2023 show wearing a pink bridal dress.

    Last week the runway model posted an image of herself with Donatella Versace at the show with the caption, ‘Thank you @Donatella_Versace for having me close your @Versace runway show in Milan.✨✨ It was such an honor and a dream come true!Such an iconic and special night! Love you, you are such an inspiration to me and I admire you so much. I love spending time with you and I can’t wait to do more together soon! #MFW’

    Paris performed at the event wearing the same sparkly pink dress and added matching rhinestone-studded DJ headphones as she owned the wheels of steel.

    Hilton and her husband, Carter Reum, 41, traveled throughout Europe for much of the summer and spent a considerable amount of time in the romantic lakeside town of Portofino, Italy. Reum used his iPhone to capture stills of the toned, tan blonde beauty.

    The duo who married in November 2021 hosting a lavish star-studded event have never looked more connected and in love.

    The couple is coming up on their one-year wedding anniversary in November. The high-profile duo keeps the spark alive by spending time together as they travel.

    Strictly’s Kaye Adams admits that she ‘blanked’ during her performance as she gets emotional

    She was the first celebrity to be sent home from this year’s Strictly Come Dancing during Sunday’s show.

    And Kaye Adams, 59, has admitted that she ‘blanked’ during her dance-off performance, agreeing that despite being sad to leave, the right decision was made.

    Appearing on Strictly’s It Takes Two, the Loose Women panellist got emotional while discussing the show as she told host Rylan Clark: ‘I’m going to cry’.

    The presenter was paired with pro dancer Kai Widdrington for the show, as they took to the dancefloor to perform a Charleston to Music! Music! Music! by Dorothy Provine for the week two live show.

    But after a dance-off against Matt Goss and Nadiya Bychkova, Kaye and Kai failed to hold onto their place in the competition.

    Recalling her performance, the star explained: ‘I’ve seen a few people saying “she looked like a rabbit in the headlights” and all I can say is, Yes I was. I blanked. I was tired!’

    While the elimination is disappointing for the star, she admitted that she thinks it was the right decision, praising her fellow celebrity pals on the show.

    ‘We knew it was going to be a tough night because everyone is upping their game after week one, the standard this year is so good, there’s seven or eight there that could be in the final easily.

    ‘So we knew it was going to be a tough night and to get through would be difficult,’ she explained.

    Kaye also gushed over partner Kai for his patience and mentorship, adding: ‘It’s been fantastic it really has, I’m going to cry, it’s been a privilege to meet Kai.’

    She also took to Instagram to document her time and departure from the show – admitting she was ‘gutted’ to have left.

    Talking to her 147k followers, the presenter explained: ‘I’m gutted, and I’m gutted at myself in that I just panicked in that dance-off – so that was really annoying,’

    She penned on the post: ‘Finally surfacing after hiding under the duvet since leaving Strictly this weekend. Definitely feeling a rollercoaster of emotions, but not an ounce of me regrets having done it!’

    And while Kaye reminisces on her time on the show, it was back to rehearsals for the rest of the contestants – who were snapped heading into their dance studios on Monday.

    Fleur flashed her toned torso while heading to practice for next week’s live show as she donned a turquoise sports bra and galaxy printy leggings.

    Appearing in high spirits, the Sax singer added a fur-lined leather jacket in camel and chocolate brown as she layered up.

    While soap Star James Bye also prepared to get to work as he and partner Amy Dowden were all smiles as they were spotted heading to the studio.

    Whoopi Goldberg SLAMS critic who falsely accused her of wearing a fat suit in Emmett Till film

    Whoopi Goldberg has slammed a critic who had falsely accused her of wearing a fat suit in the upcoming Emmett Till biopic.

    The 66-year-old actress addressed the controversy live Monday morning on The View as she made clear that she did not wear anything to make her body look bigger in Till.

    Kyndall Cunningham had originally wrote that the star donned a ‘distracting fat suit’ in the review published by The Daily Beast on Friday.

    Whoopi used her platform to call the writer out as she said: ‘A lady who writes for one of the magazines and she was distracted by my fat suit in her review.

    ‘I’m just going to say this, I don’t really care how you felt about the movie, but you should know that was not a fat suit — that was me.’

    She continued by saying: ‘I assume you don’t watch the show, or you would know that was not a fat suit.’

    Whoopi made sure to note that it was ‘okay to not be a fan of the movie’ but urged that the writer not judge the way people look when it comes to critiquing film.

    She explained: ‘Just comment on the acting, and if you have a question, ask somebody. I’m sure you didn’t mean to be demeaning.’

    Fellow The View panelist Sunny Hostin was surprised over body suit comment as Whoopi has been open about ‘health challenges’ that she had endured.

    The star responded by saying: ‘We will hope that she just didn’t know, and now she’ll know the next time you go to talk about somebody, you talk about them as an actor.

    ‘If you’re not sure if that’s them in there, don’t make blanket statements, because it makes you not sound like you know what you’re doing.’

    The Daily Beast review has since been updated with an editor’s note which read: ‘This story has been updated to reflect that Whoopi Goldberg says she was not wearing a fat suit.’

    Whoopi does not only star in the upcoming film but is also a producer.

    Till is a profoundly emotional and cinematic film about the true story of Mamie Till Mobley’s relentless pursuit of justice for her 14 year old son, Emmett Till, who, in 1955, was lynched while visiting his cousins in Mississippi.

    Whoopi potrays Alma Carthan who is the mother to Mamie and grandmother to Emmett.

    The film was directed by Chinonye Chukwu and also stars Danielle Deadwyler, Jalyn Hall, Frankie Faison, Hayley Bennett, Sean Patrick Thomas, John Douglas Thompson, and Gem Marc Collins.

    Till is set to release in select theaters on October 14 with a nationwide release to follow on October 28.

    Oti Mabuse flaunts her incredible curves in a figure-hugging diamanté midi dress at The Woman King

    Oti Mabuse looked nothing short of sensational as she hit the red carpet at The Woman King UK premiere in London’s Leicester Square on Monday.

    The former Strictly dancer, 32, flaunted her incredible curves in a diamanté encrusted frock as she posed up a storm at the star-studded event.

    Oti’s skin-tight outfit featured long sleeves and a high-neck which sparkled beautifully under the lights.

    The Masked Dancer judge teamed the dress with a pair of strappy black heels which added extra height to her frame.

    Opting for a natural make-up palette she gathered her locks away from her face into a high bun.

    The drama which stars Viola Davis, Lashana Lynch and John Boyega follows a group of female warriors.

    The official synopsis reads: ‘In the 1800s, a group of all-female warriors protects the African kingdom of Dahomey with skills and fierceness unlike anything the world has ever seen’.

    ‘Faced with a new threat, Gen. Nanisca trains the next generation of recruits to fight against a foreign enemy that’s determined to destroy their way of life’.

    It comes after Strictly fans were left missing one of the show’s most beloved stars when Oti was nowhere to be seen during it’s launch last week.

    The BBC hit is back for another series with the celebrity contestants being partnered up with their professional dance partners.

    But two-time champion Oti was absent as she previously confirmed she would not be returning for the 2022 series as she focuses on other projects.

    Her absence was glaring for many viewers who quickly took to social media to express their sadness that she wouldn’t be seen this season.

    Oti took to Instagram in February and confirmed that she wouldn’t be returning to the BBC One dance show after seven years.

    Oti shared a selection of photographs highlighting her time on Strictly, with snaps of herself alongside her celebrity partners, and a group shot from the latest series.

    She captioned the post: ‘Never easy to say goodbye ♥️ I have been part of the most amazing TV show, Strictly Come Dancing for the past seven years and it has been an incredible time.

    ‘Lifting the glitter ball twice and having the best journey with all my celebrities, but also meeting and working with the best team, crew, producers, celebs and incredible professional dancers!

    ‘You are my family and I adore you all forever. Thank you @sarahjamesface @jack.will.g and @jasongilkison for truly believing in me.

    ‘I’m honestly so grateful to The BBC and will always remember that Strictly and BBC brought me to the UK – which I now call home and I have learnt and grown so much. Thank You from the bottom of my heart.

    ‘I can’t put into words how difficult this decision has been, but I have decided not to return for the next series.

    ‘Dance will always be my first love and to everyone, my family especially, friends, strictly fans and judges who have been my support throughout my strictly journey, thank you for being incredible!

    ‘You are irreplaceable in my heart and have made everyday unforgettable! I love you. I will always Keeeep Dancing! and I will never forget my amazing Strictly experience! Lots of Love Oti xxx.’

    She left Strictly after winning the Glitterball trophy in two consecutive years with Emmerdale star Kelvin Fletcher. and comedian Bill Bailey.

Showbiz Ellen DeGeneres protegee Greyson Chance DOUBLES DOWN on claim she 'manipulated' him
