During his heyday, Kanye West’s stated goal was to become ‘one of the biggest real estate developers of all time’, but shocking new photos of his construction empire – including bizarre, futuristic domes – reveal the true extent of his crumbling legacy.
Just four years ago, West purchased sprawling ranches in California and Wyoming, and his shared mega-mansion with ex-wife Kim Kardashian was the envy of LA.
But ever since Ye spiraled out of control, beginning with a series of outlandish antics and erupting into vile antisemitic rants, his billion-dollar career has crumbled.
His world-conquering status as a fashion and music mogul vanished, and his real estate aspirations – including bizarre building developments inspired by Star Wars – have turned to debris.
Stunning new images captured by DailyMail.com reveal the full extent of his property decline, where his ‘Monster Lake’ ranch in Wyoming and his huge California estate have fallen into disrepair. Now, only the bones remain of his once-bold goal to become to real estate ‘what Howard Hughes was to aircraft and Henry Ford to cars’.
From Calabasas, California, to Cody, Wyoming, several real estate holdings owned by disgraced rapper Kanye West have been abandoned – leaving merely the skeletons of what was once a bold goal to become a construction titan to go along with his flatlining career
The Calabasas ranch where his ‘Yecosystems’ dream collapsed
After buying a sprawling ranch in Calabasas, Los Angeles for an estimated $3 million in 2019, West got to work constructing a futuristic dome development that left architects scratching their heads.
The 50-foot ‘Yecosystems’ were structures he hoped would help house LA’s rampant homeless population, while also serving as a backdrop for Sunday Service, the gospel choir performance project he eventually took to Coachella.
West constructed the domes through the architecture branch of his Yeezy label, dubbed Yeezy Home, which he launched in 2018. ‘We’re looking for architects and industrial designers who want to make the world better,’ he said at the time.
In an interview with Forbes a year later, the rapper showed off the early versions of the domes, which he had conceived with a team of designers after being inspired by the fictitious planet of Tatooine from Star Wars.
He planned to build droves of the prefabricated structures as housing for the homeless, and even voiced ideas to sink them into the ground with light filtering through their roofs.
The perplexing rapper believed that he could build entire cities with the pods, and felt his ‘inspired’ plans would allow them to spring up across America.
West became so obsessed with the idea that despite being booked to headline music festival Coachella in 2019, Billboard reported that he pulled out at the last minute because organizers wouldn’t build him his own giant dome in the desert for him to stay in at the event.

The disgraced rapper built the domes, pictured in July 2019, to house the homeless, and he even envisaged constructing entire cities with the Star Wars-inspired lattices
When DailyMail.com visited the sprawling ranch this month, all that was left were the concrete foundations
As recently as October, West still reportedly planned to expand the outlandish communities, believing that ‘Yecosystems’ would become a regular feature of communities across the US.
Despite being dropped from almost all of his collaborations, including lucrative deals with Adidas and Balenciaga, the rapper has forged ahead with his own business plans, filing trademark applications under the Yecosystem name.
Included in the filings were business plans for a home design service, residential buildings and even retail stores, ostensibly intended to supply services to his future tenants.
But not long after he first constructed the domes in California, in September 2019, West fell foul of California’s housing regulations after he failed to get a building permit. After failing to ever obtain once, the domes were set to be torn down – signaling the start of his real estate woes.
West had even claimed that the structures were only temporary, but inspectors suspiciously found he had laid concrete foundations first – which new images from this month show are all that are left after the wooden structures were raised to the ground down for good.
Ye once reportedly believed that the California domes, pictured in August 2019, would spring up across America, and could help solve America’s homeless problems
Neighbors also reportedly complained numerous times about the construction noise, where workers would hammer away at the lattices through the night under his instruction.
Before their demise, photographs of the ‘Yeezy Home’ project showed several of the looming structures huddled together on his dusty Calabasas ranch. But now, almost four years on from their initial construction, the rapper’s domes in California are nowhere to be seen.
His hopes of re-financing their construction have also vanished, as Forbes estimates that his net worth, which was once valued at $2 billion, has disintegrated to a mere $4 million.
And while his futuristic structures have vanished, the rapper has seemingly given up all hope of restoring the Calabasas ranch to its former glory, with March 2023 images revealing his other structures nearby have also fallen into disrepair.
Scattered garbage, torn down paper walls and a disused four-wheel dune buggy are dispersed around the property. Overgrown greenery and unused building materials border the buildings, which are a far cry from the ex-mogul’s lavish former lifestyle.
The site had reportedly been used to host the rapper’s cryptic ‘Donda Academy’ school, which was shrouded in mystery after parents were forced to sign non-disclosure agreements to keep its secrets under wraps.
Several props from the doomed institution, including drums and trikes, had been left at the scene, while shots from the eerie campus nearby from last fall showed no signs of being a bustling hub of education.

The rapper’s abandoned $14m Wyoming ranch
In his trademark bombastic style, West tried another architectural experiment in ‘affordable housing’ after purchasing a sprawling Wyoming ranch, which he snapped up when he reportedly became ‘obsessed’ with the Midwest state several years ago.
Bought for an eye-watering $14 million in 2019, the rapper set about hedging his bets for success in his bizarre contraptions. Over 1,100 miles from his struggling Calabasas estate, West saw Wyoming’s wide-open plains as the perfect setting to stretch his unorthodox real estate aspirations.
Again aiming to erect the outlandish constructions, the rapper mimicked his prototypes in California – except this time appearing to use concrete-like walling instead of the wood and material lattices he tried on the West Coast.
Images from July 2020 showed the ranch to be a bustling hotspot of development, with numerous vehicles on the site while laborers hammered away at the structures.
But now, following the collapse of his fortune and shattered public image, new shots of the ‘Monster Lake Ranch’ show it to be essentially stranded.
While his divorce from Kim Kardashian was stealing headlines and his antics, including strutting through Paris in ‘White Lives Matter’ T-shirts, ruined his legacy, West saw both his career and his real estate plans flatline.
Stunning aerial shots from this month reveal that although his decision to use a hardened surface has left the structures still standing, they have been abandoned under a thick blanket of snow with almost no signs of life for miles around.
Several other buildings which were once surrounded by cars and construction materials are now seemingly deserted, while the grey domes are the standout eyesore among the stunning Wyoming scenery.

In new images from March 2023, West has appeared to build his Wyoming domes out of a concrete-like material, causing the structures to remain standing on the abandoned ranch when DailyMail.com visited the scene

West’s marriage to an architect as his plans fall apart
Ye’s empire imploded in dramatic fashion in recent years after he launched into several antisemitic rants, which were the last straw after decades of outlandish behavior and embarrassing meltdowns.
And while his expensive plans clearly fell apart, he ironically flew into a new marriage to an architect, wedding Yeezy’s head of architecture Bianca Censori in January.
Known for his show-stealing conduct through the years, his spiral has worsened since he launched into several offensive rants, including a public social media ban notably fueled by a post vowing to go ‘Death Con 3 on Jewish people’.
Yeezy products have been pulled from shelves, professional athletes associated with his ‘Donda Sports’ label sever ties, and fashion houses such as Balenciaga and Vogue are avoiding their past collaborations with him like the plague.
The decline has been seemingly unending, with one of his more recent tirades seeing him begin raving about the ‘Jewish underground media mafia’.
The woke-slamming rapper has even hinted he may attempt yet another improbable run for president in 2024, boldly hoping to have more success in a campaign for the White House than he has had at using pods to house America’s homeless population.
Now, without a clear route back to reclaiming his former fortune, the skeletons of his real estate empire and one-of-a-kind ‘domes’ may be all that is left of his legacy.

Smiths frontman Morrissey has listed the beautiful seaside home he bought his beloved mother.
The Victorian four-bedroom home features exceptional views over the harbour in Cobh, Cork, but is being sold for less than the cost of a one bedroom apartment in central London at just £510,000.
The house was built in the 1850s and still includes the original shutters, sash windows, cornicing and doors from when it was first built.
The singer, known for Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now, bought the house for his mother, Elizabeth Dwyer, in 2002.
He credited her with his ability as a lyricist, his animal rights activism, and being ‘the sole reason for all the good and motivational things in my life’ when she died in 2020 aged 82.

Another view shows the rear of the house with original features and a small conservatory
Estate Agents Sherry FitzGerald, who are selling the property in the seaport town, said: ‘The Manse is a superb 1850’s Victorian property which is set on beautiful, manicured gardens and has magnificent uninterrupted views over Cork Harbour.
‘This family home is in good condition while retaining all original features including shutters, sash windows, doors, architraves, cornicing, picture rails, ceiling roses and fireplaces. Whilst this home is in good condition it needs some upgrading.
‘The Manse has a south facing aspect with exceptional views over Cork Harbour.
‘The property is accessed through a gated entrance with the garden laid out in lawn and mature planting.
‘There is also a pedestrian entrance from the property down to the high road.
‘The well-appointed rooms extend over two floors offering four bedrooms, bathroom, two ensuites and dressing room on the first floor.
‘Located only a short distance from Rushbrooke Lawn Tennis and croquet club, primary and secondary schools, creche, train station, bus stop, cross river ferry and the town centre of Cobh, which offers all the conveniences of contemporary family living.’
Now unfurnished, the house is filled with plush wallpaper, curtains, chandeliers and intricate tiling.

And outside is approximately 0.6 acres of manicured lawns on two levels, including a pond and a small wendy house.
Morrissey bought the house for his Dublin-born mother in 2002.
When she died from gallbladder cancer, the Smiths frontman blamed the NHS, claiming doctors missed the disease so they couldn’t treat her.
In a statement on his website, Morrissey Central, he said: ‘Following a stroke, her recovery was remarkable.
‘She had three extensive head-to-toe examinations by the NHS who could find nothing amiss.
Morrissey’s childhood home in Manchester
‘Four days following the third examination I was told that my mother had three weeks to live.
‘Nine days later she had withered and died without any attempt by the NHS to save her life.
‘Once the NHS waves you off with paracetamol, get ready to meet your maker.
‘The official cause of my mother’s death was not the trendy and unquestionable – ‘Covid’ – but, instead, cancer of the gallbladder.
‘How I wish to all gods that my mother had expressed no faith in the NHS.
‘She might still be alive today.’
It comes as Morrissey this week announced he would play two huge outdoor concerts this summer.
The singer is also embarking on a European tour, including a sold-out date at London’s Eventim Apollo on March 19 before heading to France and Belgium.
Steven Patrick Frances Morrissey launched his solo career in 1988, a year after the dissolution of The Smiths.
The singer has been widely credited in the emergence and development of indie rock and Britpop.
In 2006, he was voted the second-greatest living British cultural icon after former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney.
London is a powerhouse for football with one of the highest concentration of teams per city in the world.
There are 13 professional men’s clubs in the capital, ranging from League Two’s AFC Wimbledon in the fourth tier of English football to Arsenal, who sit at the top of the Premier League.
Yet while which club you support remains deeply rooted in where you live, some fans could soon be priced out of their beloved patch.
Rivalries between London’s clubs stretch back generations and fans are proud of their turf — location matters.
Perhaps the most well-known clash in the capital is the North London Derby between top-tier sides Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspurs.
While which club you support remains deeply rooted in where you live, some fans could soon be priced out of their beloved patch. Pictured: Every football club in London that plays in a professional league
Another fierce rivalry is the Dockers Derby between Millwall and West Ham, whose fans gained infamy from the 1960s and 70s during the reemergence of football hooliganism.
As Londoners are further squeezed by the cost of living crisis and property prices steadily edging higher, many will wonder how long supporters can live in the same area as the club they support.
Here, MailOnline has broken down how much an average two-bed flat and three-bed house would cost you around each London football club’s stadium so you can decide for yourself…
Arsenal (Premier League, Emirates Stadium, N7 7AJ0)
Arsenal, or the Gunners, are the most successful club in London in terms of trophies won. The team have played at the 60,000-seat Emirates Stadium since 2006.
The stadium in Holloway, north London, is home to some of the most expensive properties in the capital.
While the average price for a two-bed flat is £689,935, a three-bed house sells for an average of £1,027,005.
Many of the team, which combined earns more than £97million, reportedly live in areas in the north of London, from Highgate to Hampstead Heath.
Two-bed flat, £675,000
Arsenal have been at the higher end of the Premier League table for most of the season. This two-bed flat is just two streets away from the Emirates Stadium
The tiled sky blue exterior gives way to a stylish interior with a slick modern finish. This flat will set you back £675,000
It is on the seventh floor of the ten-storey apartment block and includes a balcony as well as two bedrooms and a kitchen crossed with a living room
Three-bed house, £1,200,000
Mirroring the club’s place in the league, the average cost for a three-bed house in the area is at the higher end compared to other parts of London
This four-storey house costs a whopping £1.2million and even comes with its very own roof terrace. It hardwood floors have been paired with wooden doors to create a more homely feel
The gorgeous house is a short 15-minute walk from the home of the Gunners and on the same road as a modern gastropub, perfect for a post-match pint
Brentford (Premier League, Gtech Community Stadium, TW8 0RU)
As Brentford were only been promoted to the Premier League in 2021, the side are relatively new to the top tier.
They beat Swansea in the Championship Play-Off Final that year, ending their unfortunate national record of nine play-off campaigns without a promotion.
The club moved to the Gtech Community Stadium, a mile away from their old one of Griffin Park, in 2020.
The Bees’ main rivalries are with Fulham and QPR, especially after the latter tried to take over the club in 1967.
In the past decade the area of Brentford has been regenerated, although average prices for the area have remained around the £600,000 mark.
Two-bed flat, £640,000
Brentford are relatively new to the Premier League, having only been promoted in 2021 after a 2-0 win against Swansea in the Championship Play-Off Final, which is often called the most lucrative game in football since it paves the way to the top tier
This two-bed flat is worth £640,000 and is an average cost for the area. With a total area of 831 sq ft there is plenty of space to relax in
The flat comes with a balcony, two bedrooms and two bathrooms, one of which is an en-suite in the master bedroom

It spans two floors and is less than a 20-minute walk from Brentford’s new home, the Gtech Community Stadium
Chelsea (Premier League, Stamford Bridge, SW6 1HS)
As one of the fanciest places to live in London, it is perhaps unsurprising that homes in Chelsea are some of the most expensive in the capital.
The average price for a three-bedroom house in this exclusive part of London is an eye-watering £1,299,370.
Although the area boasts rich homeowners and a wealth of luxury shops, the club has struggled this year and are currently sitting in the middle of the league.
Chelsea’s stadium of Stamford Bridge has been the team’s home ground since the club was founded in 1905.
Two-bed flat, £820,000
This luxury flat lies in the heart of Chelsea and is just a short walk from Stamford Bridge stadium, the home of the Blues
Graham Potter’s men might be struggling this season, as they languish in 10th, but you’ll need a pretty penny to afford to live here
For any of Chelsea’s players the flat is likely to be within their means — even the poorest paid member of the squad, who according to Spotrac is 18-year-old goalkeeper Gabriel Slonina, earns a reported £20,000 a week, or £1.04million a year
Three-bed house, £1,295,000
Yet even some of Chelsea’s own players might be priced out if they want a three-bed house like this one worth £1.3million
A mere 15-minute walk away from Stamford Bridge, this is the perfect place to be if you want to nip to a match
Of course, if you’re in the market for a Chelsea season ticket as well, you’ll be looking at shelving out up to another £940
Crystal Palace (Premier League, Selhurst Park, SE25 6PU)
Crystal Palace, who are known as The Eagles, are currently playing their tenth season in a row of top flight football.
The club’s supporters largely come from south London, Kent and Surrey. It was only after the London Government Act 1963 that the club’s ground of Selhurst Park was included in Greater London rather than Surrey.
Previous managers of the club have included Manchester United legend Steve Coppell, Steve Bruce and former England gaffer Roy Hodgson.
The average house price around Selhurst Park is markedly cheaper than in the rest of London. An average two-bed flat goes for £300,017, while three-bedroom houses usually go for around £370,000.
Two-bed flat, £300,000

Fulham (Premier League, Craven Cottage, SW6 6HH)
The area of Fulham borders Chelsea and shares the same postcode as the home of the Blues.
Fulham’s 25,000-seater stadium Craven Cottage sits surrounded by terraced streets while also backing onto the River Thames.
Properties in the area sell for an overall average price of £1,139,792. An average two-bed flat is around the £850,000 mark, while a three-bed home goes for around £1.1million.
Fulham was founded in 1879 and as such has staked a claim as London’s oldest club in the Premier League, although Crystal Palace changed its founding year from 1905 to 1861 last year after a controversial new take on the Eagles’ history.

West Ham (Premier League, London Stadium, E20 2ST)
The London 2012 Olympics transformed Stratford, providing a new stadium for West Ham United and thousands of new homes and a hub of new bars, restaurants and businesses around Westfield shopping centre.
The club had previously been at the Boleyn Ground, often referred to as Upton Park.
Although east of Stratford such as West Ham are sometimes described as in the East End today, the traditional definition does not cover the area, which before 1965 came under the county of Essex.
The club’s main rivals are Millwall as historically the two clubs came from shipbuilding yards on opposite sides of the Thames.
If you were to buy a home in West Ham you might be pleasantly surprised to find out that the average price for a property there is £435,875.

Millwall (Championship, The Den, SE16 3LN)
Millwall Football Club are the first club on our list not to play in the Premier League.

Although the team last played in the Millwall area of the Isle of Dogs in 1910, the team have kept the name.
They currently play their home matches at The Den in Bermondsey, where house prices average at £669,483.

Queens Park Rangers (Championship, Loftus Road, W12 7PJ)
QPR played home games in close to 20 different grounds before they settled at Loftus Road.
The team has entertained at the stadium since 1917, aside from two spells at White City in 1931 to 1933 and the 1962/3 season as they tried to garner larger crowds
The area of west London around QPR’s home ground of Loftus Road has steadily got more expensive over the last two decades.
Since 2003, median prices for terraced homes in Shepherd’s Bush have rocketed by a whopping 159 per cent, while properties overall have shot up by 117 per cent on average.

Charlton Athletic (League One, The Valley, SE7 8AN)
Charlton was created by a group of teenagers who played football together by the Thames in East Street, which is now known as Eastmoor and is no longer residential.
The gang of 14 and 15-year-olds founded the club on June 9, 1905, and the team, which had an average age of 15-and-a-half, started playing their matches at Siemens Meadow.
They moved to The Valley in 1919 and currently sit mid-table in League One, the third best professional league in England.
The area of southeast London boasts slightly cheaper average house prices than in the centre of the capital.

The area of southeast London boasts slightly cheaper average house prices than in the centre of the capital. This two-bed flat is on the market for just £400,000
However, while this house may be on the cheaper side for London, it is still almost double the average price for a house outside of the capital
The first floor flat offers a charming interior and a gross internal area of 720 sq ft. It is less than a ten-minute walk to The Valley
Three-bed house, £550,000
This three-bed house in the heart of southeast London is on the market for just £550,000 and remains below the average for a house of its kind across the entirety of the capital
It’s especially good for children with its massive square footage of 1,236 sq ft, three bedrooms and a large reception room
For the avid Charlton Athletic fan it is a little further from the stadium compared to the two-bed flat, but shouldn’t take longer than 15 minutes door to turnstile
AFC Wimbledon (League Two, Cherry Red Records Stadium, SW17 0NR)
Two-bed flat, £450,000
Property prices in Wimbledon have increased massively in the last two decades.
Yet while prices increased by a whopping 190 per cent, the club has gone from strength to strength.
AFC Wimbledon was miraculously re-founded in 2002 after Wimbledon FC was controversially relocated to Milton Keynes, 53 miles away, and renamed MK Dons.
They started in the ninth tier of English football and have risen as high as League One, although they were relegated last season and currently sit in the middle of the table.
However, while fans will no doubt be delighted to have their club back, and in the hands of the fans this time, property prices may start pricing out die-hard supporters from around their beloved Plough Lane.
This two-bed flat is selling for £450,000 and is part of an apartment complex in Wimbledon just an eight-minute walk from the club’s Cherry Red Records Stadium

Don Lemon delayed a CNN commercial break on Tuesday to awkwardly heap praises on his co-host Kaitlan Collins for her interview with Republican Rep. James Comer.
Lemon was apparently so incensed by comments made by Comer, a Kentucky Republican who serves as the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, in his interview with Collins that he stopped outro music signaling a cut to commercial.
He also hit out at the New York Post, claiming it is not a ‘credible source,’ after Comer praised the outlet for breaking the news about Hunter Biden‘s laptop.
The awkward exchange came amid reports that Don Lemon has fallen out of favor with his female co-hosts, and even made Collins run off crying.

In the interview with Comer on CNN This Morning, Collins pressed the Republican on upcoming House investigations into Hunter Biden’s laptop and suggestions from the Twitter Files that the FBI tried to suppress those stories.
Comer said he was grateful for Twitter revealing how the FBI worked with social media companies to suppress stories related to Hunter Biden’s laptop, saying: ‘Thank goodness for Elon Musk.
‘We wouldn’t know that the government was involved in censoring conservative speech were it not for Elon Musk being transparent and not disclosing the Twitter Files,’ he said before praising the New York Post for breaking the story.
The congressman called the paper a ‘credible outlet’ and ‘the fourth biggest newspaper in America.’
But when the interview concluded and Lemon was left to transition to a commercial break, he seemed stunned by Comer’s comments as his co-host Poppy Harlow praised Collins for ‘fact checking in real-time.’
‘That’s the time that we’re in, where facts are sort of flexible and you just throw things out there — citing uncredible sources like the New York Post as a credible source and saying that facts are — it’s just… I can’t believe that we’re here,’ Lemon said.
Harlow then looked directly at the camera, seemingly taken aback by Lemon’s comments and said: ‘That’s why we got Kaitlin Collins on the Hill fact checking in real-time.’
Still, Lemon continued his rant even as the outro music started to play, signaling a cut to commercial.
‘Hold on, please with the music,’ he told the crew, who immediately shut off the sound.
He then went on to claim there is no ‘shared reality’ with people like Comer, saying: ‘American people are going to have to suffer through all of this stuff from election deniers to people who don’t believe in facts.
‘We don’t have a shared reality, and now it’s center stage.’
Lemon was supposed to transition to a commercial break following Collins’ interview with Rep. James Comer
The two discussed the upcoming hearings on Hunter Biden’s laptop, when Comer praised the New York Post for breaking the story — much to Lemon’s chagrin
At that point, Harlow tried to interrupt again, as she continued to praise Collins for pointing out that special counsels for probes into Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump were both appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland.
She called it ‘critically important’ to fact-check in real time as the show finally cut to a commercial.
When it came back, Lemon praised Collins’ interviewing skills, saying: ‘As I was watching that very good interview by Kaitlan Collins with Comer, and I had to come out and say something because he is citing sources as credible that are not credible.
‘He is talking about facts of something that’s kind of flexible, and maybe you believe one thing or maybe another, facts are facts.’
Hunter Biden’s laptop story was highly questioned by Biden supporters ahead of the 2020 presidential election, and even led to the New York Post being suspended from Twitter for a period.
But multiple outlets — including CNN — have since confirmed that the laptop is authentic.
The awkward interaction came amid reports Lemon has had a falling out with Collins
CNN insiders say Lemon is having trouble sharing the spotlight with his two morning show co-hosts, noting they used to arrive at events together but now come separately
Lemon’s awkward attempt to praise his colleague on Tuesday came amid reports that he and his female co-hosts have not been getting along.
Sources have said that the network’s golden boy went ‘ballistic’ on Collins back in December for interrupting him, apparently berating his co-host in front of the television crew.
The incident was later featured in a company newsletter, prompting Lemon to ‘blow up’ at staff, according to RadarOnline.
He was told to take a day to ‘cool off’ by CNN boss Chris Licht.
When the two co-hosts finally reunited on Monday, their interactions were notably icy towards one another, speaking to each other only once during the hour-long show.
That interaction came when Lemon appeared to nearly interrupt Collins again, pointing to her and asking her whether she recycles in a discussion about climate change.
Collins barely looks at her co-host as she quickly replies ‘yes, we recycle’ before directing her attention back to their guest.
Lemon was reportedly told to take time to ‘cool off’ after admonishing Collins for interrupting him in a segment in December. He is pictured here last week
A spokesperson for the network denies there is any animosity between the co-hosts, calling them ‘friends’
A CNN insider has since told Fox News that Lemon is ‘having a hard time sharing the spotlight’ since losing his solo hosting gig for his primetime show, saying: ‘Don’s having a hard time sharing a show. He’s having a hard time sharing the spotlight.’
Lemon anchored CNN’s 10pm ET time slow for years but its viewership had been steadily declining.
He was then pulled from the top slot by Licht in September and asked to appear alongside Collins and Harlow for a revamped morning show.
It was intended to replace the Jeff Zucker-era program ‘New Day.’
Eric Hall had served as executive producer of the show when it launched but he was pulled from the role last month and reassigned to prime time.
Collins and Lemon, along with Harlow, used to arrive to red carpets and events as a unit.
But now, they arrive separately and seem to want to stay far away from each other.
‘At this point, Kaitlan wants to be on set with Don as little as possible,’ another source told The Post. ‘It’s messy.’
To Collins’ advantage, CEO Licht wants the morning show hosts out in the field more than on set.
Collins, who is also CNN’s White House correspondent, has recently spent a lot of time in DC.
CNN previously issued a statement saying that the reports of Lemon’s outburst are overblown, but other outlets have confirmed that the events being described are largely accurate.
‘Don, Kaitlan and Poppy were friends before they were co-anchors and they remain friends today,’ a statement reads.
The pensioner accused of threatening to kill Guy Sebastian allegedly told the pop star ‘I’ll put a bullet in your head’ while wielding a hammer.
But Phillip Hanslow, 66 – who faced court for the first time on Thursday, flanked by his terminally ill wife – disputes that and believes he actually said ‘one day someone will put a bullet in your head’.
Hanslow is accused of stalking and intimidating the pop star, and kicking over his fence during an incident on January 23, after Sebastian returned from a family holiday to Japan.
Police raided Hanslow’s home in the following days, arriving at the elderly man’s house while Mr Hanslow was on the toilet.
Hanslow was arrested, charged and hit with an apprehended violence order for the Battle Scars hitmaker’s protection.
There was a media circus outside the court as Hanslow arrived on Thursday and helped his frail wife Carol out of their banged-up Ford F150 4WD.
He clutched an oxygen tank to help her breathe as he helped her into a wheelchair, claiming to Daily Mail Australia that his neighbour was a ‘vengeful’ person.
‘He’s paranoid about security and has a large security camera outside so anywhere I go outside on the property, he can see…’ Mr Hanslow claimed.
‘We’re going to have to sell. We’re too old for this.’
Guy was pictured at his Maroubra house on Thursday welcoming guests as his neighbour appeared in court
Mr Hanslow arrived at Waverley Local Court in his old Ford 4WD on Thursday morning, with his frail, terminally ill wife
Mr Hanslow got a wheelchair for his wife out of the boot, before he helped her out of the car and into the chair. Her breathing tube was visible
His wife wore an electronic pulse monitor on her finger, and expressed concerns that her heart rate was too high as they entered the courthouse.
The elderly couple waited outside the courtroom – Mrs Hanslow struggling with her breathing – for about an hour before their matter was heard.
When they finally entered a courtroom, the court officer raised his voice and said, ‘Whoever is responsible for that beeping, can you turn it off?’
Members of the public sitting in the gallery had to explain it was Mrs Hanslow’s pulse machine.
The court officer apologized, but the elderly woman felt self-conscious and turned the device off.
He did not enter a plea and his matter was adjourned until March 9. The AVO against him and his bail conditions were extended.
‘I tried to get legal aid to represent me [but] there was no one available,’ Mr Hanslow told the court.
He also said he needed to go to hospital on February 16 to have his ‘infected bowel’ removed.
Outside court afterwards, Mr Hanslow was asked whether he was surprised to have been charged.
‘I’m surprised by the whole ordeal and I’m surprised the police even arrested me,’ he responded.
‘They broke into the back of the house, smashed down the door and came into the house while I was the toilet and arrested me and then took me off the police station and I spent six and half hours in the lockups over just a heated argument between the neighbor, which I think is really overboard.’
The bitter row between Guy Sebastian, 41, wife Jules Egan, 43, and their neighbour Phillip Hanslow began in 2013 when the glamour couple bought a property in Maroubra in Sydney’s eastern suburbs for $3.1million
Mr Hanslow and his wife now live in a semi-derelict home in Carlton (pictured) after leaving the house they own next door to Guy Sebastian
Phillip Hanslow and his wife Carole have since moved out of their Maroubra home (shown on the right of Guy Sebastian’s imposing property)
The alleged incidents followed years of rising tensions between the neighbours.
A former builder, Mr Hanslow is alleged to have confronted Sebastian at the property and kicked down his fence.
Earlier, police took out an apprehended violence order against Mr Hanslow on Sebastian’s behalf, banning him from contacting the singer or setting foot on his property.
When Daily Mail Australia visited Mr Hanslow on January 25 he said the singer was ‘not a nice guy’, but added: ‘I’m seeking legal advice – that’s all I can say at the moment.’
The bitter row began in 2013 when Sebastian, 41, and wife Jules Egan, 43, bought a property in Maroubra in Sydney’s eastern suburbs for $3.1million.
But when they demolished it to build their sprawling new dream home, it triggered the epic feud between the Sebastians and Mr Hanslow.
Mr Hanslow claimed debris from the demolition damaged his home when a ‘brick missile’ smashed into an outside wall, narrowly missing his lounge window and his terminally-ill wife Carole, who was watching TV inside.
And he slammed the final design of the Sebastian’s new home as an ugly fortress for its imposing and windowless frontage, butting right up to the edge of his home.
Mr Hanslow has now been driven out of the home, which is believed to be owned by his wife Carol, and instead lives in a rundown dilapidated property in Carlton with his sick wife and their pet bird, Boo Boo.
But the former builder, who was forced to retire with fibromyalgia, still returns to his Maroubra home to work on renovations.
Federal agents seized handwritten notes from Joe Biden‘s beach home in Rehoboth on Wednesday but found no documents marked classified, the president’s attorney said, as the crisis takes yet another troubling turn for the administration.
The Justice Department will review the material they took, which dates from Biden’s time as vice president.
Biden didn’t answer questions on the matter during an economic event at the White House. The president, who is fighting off a cold, sat silently while reporters shouted at him and then were escorted from the room.
Biden cooperated with the three-and-half hour search of his $2.7 million, six-bedroom, 4,800 square foot home in the Delaware beach town, his attorney Bob Bauer said.
‘The DOJ’s planned search of the President’s Rehoboth residences, conducted in coordination and cooperation with the President’s attorneys, has concluded. The search was conducted from 8:30 AM to noon. No documents with classified markings were found,’ Bauer said.
‘Consistent with the process in Wilmington, the DOJ took for further review some materials and handwritten notes that appear to relate to his time as Vice President,’ Bauer said.
Biden’s personal attorney acknowledged the search after various news outlets reported it was taking place, marking yet another occasion the administration made an announcement after journalists uncovered information. It comes as the White House deals with questions about how transparent it has been on the crisis, which keeps growing.
Federal agents from the Department of Justice are searching President Joe Biden ‘s Rehoboth, Delaware beach house for classified documents
Federal agents leave the Rehoboth beach house of President Joe Biden
Every room in the beach house was searched, White House spokesman Ian Sams said on Wednesday.
He wouldn’t say if there are any other areas where Biden has papers – such as his Senate material being housed at University of Pennsylvania – will be searched.
‘Look, I think we are providing information as this goes on and answering questions about the search activities as they have been happening. I don’t want to speak too much to the DoJ practices in an ongoing investigation. I can say that we have cooperated fully,’ he said.
Biden’s attorneys have said there are no classified documents at his beach home, having searched it themselves.
But FBI agents searched Biden’s main residence in Wilmington, Delaware in late January and found more classified documents there after the president’s attorneys had conducted their own search.
And the White House had fielded questions last week about whether a search of his Rehoboth home might happen this past weekend, when Biden was at Camp David and at his Wilmington residence.
But administration officials have declined to answer questions about specifics, citing the ongoing Justice Department investigation.
Biden bought the Rehoboth house for $2.7 million in 2017 when he was vice president. He and first lady Jill Biden often spend weekends there with their pets and their grandchildren.
He was last there the weekend of January 20th through the 23rd.
The administration has faced a series of questions about the classified materials in Biden’s personal possession and their transparency on the matter.
House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman James Comer on Tuesday night claimed that National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) general counsel Gary Stern told them the agency was prevented from notifying the public that classified documents had been found at Biden’s D.C. think tank back in November, raising questions over who stopped the information from coming out.
Federal agents searched Biden’s Rehoboth home for three-and-a-half hours on Wednesday
President Joe Biden is facing questions about his transparency on documents crisis
It is unclear who stopped the information from being released.
Biden’s attorneys discovered the documents on Nov. 2, 2022, as they closed down his D.C. think tank. It did not disclose their findings until January, after CBS News reported their existence.
And earlier this week, it was revealed that FBI agents searched Biden’s DC think tank office days after the president’s lawyer identified classified material there.
The White House and the Justice Department did not disclose the search, which was reported by CBS News.
White House spokesman Ian Sams was asked about the non-disclosure but argued the administration has been transparent.
‘Yes, I think we have been pretty transparent from the beginning providing information as it occurs throughout this process,’ he said.
It was not immediately known if any additional documents marked classified were uncovered during the search, which took place in mid-November.
In total, there have been five discoveries of classified materials in Biden’s possession: at the Penn-Biden Center, a think tank in Washington, D.C.; in Biden’s garage at his Wilmington, Del., home; one document discovered in his ‘personal library’ in the same home; four more documents found in his home; and then another six found when the Justice Department did another search of his Wilmington residence.
All date back to Biden’s time as vice president under Barack Obama but the White House won’t answer as to what topics the materials cover.
Biden, himself, has taken a personal hit, with his refusal to disclose the initial discovery immediately to the public – especially when it was revealed the documents were found in his think tank six days before the 2022 midterm election.
He has been defensive on the matter, saying ‘there’s nothing there.’
‘I think you’re gonna find there’s nothing there. I have no regrets. I’m following what the lawyers have told me they want me to do. It’s exactly what we’re doing. There’s no there there,’ he said in California last week.
Taking the public beating has been White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, who is grilled in her daily press briefings with questions about why the discovery wasn’t publicly disclosed, the validity of the information she is giving to the public, and what else is being kept hidden.
Jean-Pierre has admitted she and her press team learned about the documents’ existence when CBS News asked about it for their story – which was two months after the initial discovery.
She’s also made a series of misstatements – including saying six times the search for more documents was completed, only for five more to be found – that are compounding the public relations problems for the White House.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has the unenviable task of trying to parse the document debacle to the media on a daily basis
All of this – the lack of disclosures, the misstatements, and Biden’s testiness – has contributed to the impression the White House has not been forthcoming and that their strategy on this has been a mistake.
The White House has repeatedly insisted it is cooperating with the Justice Department and following all legal procedures properly. The administration argues it was transparent with the federal government – immediately informing the National Archives of the materials – even if it didn’t disclose it to the general public.
Meanwhile, Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel to look into both Donald Trump and Biden’s handling of classified material.
After ignoring requests to turn over presidential records, the Department of Justice authorized a warrant for former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida. As a result of the search, a Special Counsel to oversee the probe was appointed.
Former President Donald Trump is also under investigation for the mishandling of presidential papers and classified documents after he left office in January 2021
A photo of documents seized during the Aug. 8 FBI search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. The probe into the presence of top-secret information at Mar-a-Lago continues.
The Biden administration has taken pains to point out the differences between the president’s handling of the documents and Trump’s.
The National Archives had repeatedly asked Trump to return official documents taken when he left the White House in January 2021, as required by the Presidential Records Act.
After months of stonewalling, Trump eventually turned over 15 boxes to the National Archives and found classified material. Suspecting Trump hadn’t handed everything over, the federal agency turned to the Justice Department, which ultimately got a federal warrant to search the property.
After that August raid, Trump was found to have hundreds of documents with classified documents in his possession.
Former Vice President Mike Pence also revealed last week that some classified documents were found in his Indiana home. His attorney immediately notified the federal government, and they were turned over to the FBI.
Kevin Bacon in Super Bowl commercial for Budweiser playing on longtime six degrees of separation theory linked with actor
Kevin Bacon is involved with Budweiser for a Super Bowl ad playing on the longtime six degrees of separation theory he’s linked with.
The veteran actor, 64, narrates a regional commercial that the beer company released Tuesday, which showcases each bottle in a six pack being distributed amongst different groups of people.
The Footloose actor in 1994 was the center of a popular and enduring game devised by three students at Albright College, in which people had to link other entertainers to Bacon via six or less costars.
The latest: Kevin Bacon, 64, is involved with Budweiser for a Super Bowl ad playing on the longtime six degrees of separation theory he’s linked with. He was pictured in December of 2022 in NYC
Speaking to People, Bacon said he didn’t initially put together the connection when he signed on to do the spot.
‘It wasn’t until I actually saw the spot that I said to myself, “Oh, that’s right. A six-pack is six degrees of connection,”‘ he said. ‘I didn’t even think to myself, “Oh, of course, they’re coming to me.” I just thought they wanted me because of my voice.’
The Philadelphia native said of the six degrees theory: ‘I’ve always felt that the actual idea, which, by the way, existed many years before I was attached to it … is a beautiful concept. If you take me out of the game, we are all connected.’
The promotional clip features a six-pack of Budweiser bottled beers being casually distributed between people who are working, at a party, playing basketball and making music.

Bacon ends the commercial declaring ‘This Bud’s for you,’ a motto the company says its looking to revive to the public with the ad on the large stage
‘Everybody who’s in this ad are real people who have had their own personal struggles to overcome,’ said Bacon, who ends the commercial declaring ‘This Bud’s for you,’ a motto the company says its looking to revive to the public with the ad on the large stage.
Bacon said he appreciates the clear message sent in the spot: ‘I think it’s very clever to take that idea of a six-pack of Budweiser and use that six degrees concept.
‘I’m sure there’s Super Bowl ads where you go, “Yeah, but what were they trying [to sell]?” I don’t think this is one of them.’

Bacon said he appreciates the clear message sent in the spot: ‘I think it’s very clever to take that idea of a six-pack of Budweiser and use that six degrees concept’
Bacon told the outlet that the six degrees of separation is a recurring theme through life, giving an example of two strangers speaking at a bar at the airport.
‘If they strike up a conversation, they’re going to try to find connections,’ Bacon said. ‘They’re going to try to say, “Oh, where are you from? Oh, yeah. My cousin has a friend who’s from Des Moines.” That’s what we do. It is something that we are hungry for.’
The spot will air in certain markets for Super Bowl LVII, which will be held at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on February 12, pitting the Kansas City Chiefs against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Grubby real estate agent caught encouraging potential buyers to ‘cash in on the housing shortage’ as Aussies across the country struggle to find a place to rent
- Real estate ad encourages investors to ‘cash in’ on housing shortages
- Advertisement was for a $520,000 home in Cooktown, Queensland
- Listing sparked anger at ‘scumbag’ real estate agents as prices soar
A real estate ad encouraging investors to ‘cash in’ on rural Australia’s housing crisis has infuriated people struggling to find a place to live as house prices and rests soar.
Cooktown Real Estate listed the three-bedroom home in the far north Queensland town for $520,000 – but it was the description of property which drew anger.
‘Cash in on Cooktown’s housing shortage and purchase this excellant (sic) rental investment,’ the ad reads.
‘This modern home is in a central location with an existing government tenant.
‘With limited properties for sale and severe rental shortage, well built homes are in demand.’
The ad then lists the features of the home, including its ‘sturdy rendered concrete’.
An ad (above) by Cooktown Real Estate for a $520,000 home encourages investors to ‘cash in’ on the rural community’s housing crisis
The listing was shared to Reddit where users said they were struggling to find a home because of ‘astronomical’ prices.
Cooktown is about 330km north of Cairns and about 80km off the main highway to the tip of Cape York.
With fewer than 3,000 residents, many commenters said that homes should be cheap and plentiful.
‘I’m shocked they have houses going for $520,000 to be honest. Not the kind of place you’d even buy a shack!’ one person wrote.
‘Cooktown is in the middle of nowhere, I would have thought rental oversupply because nobody wants to live there,’ another commenter said.
A third wrote: ‘520k in Cooktown, tell ’em they’re dreaming.’
Many commenters underneath a post calling out the ad said they don’t understand how the home (above) could be worth $520,000
Locals said a lack of homes in the area is driving the housing market to ‘astronomical’ prices (pictured, the $520,000 Cooktown home)
Other commenters called out the real estate agency for its thoughtless ad.
‘Real estate people are vile and obviously this person can’t even spell,’ one said.
‘Trying to find a house or even a bloody rental in Australia might actually kill me,’ another person said.
A third commenter wrote ‘F**king scumbags’, while another added: ‘Scum of the earth some might say.’
However, at least one commenter was happy to defend the realtor, writing: ‘At this stage we have to stop attacking real estate agents.
‘I can’t stand real estate practices, but to be honest this isn’t really one of the sh***y ones.
‘They’re not a charity, everyone knows what’s going on with the housing market, it would be mad not to use it to sell houses.’
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Cooktown Real Estate for comment.

Anna Faris goes TOPLESS in teaser for her first-ever Super Bowl 2023 commercial for Avocados From Mexico: ‘Unbelievably thrilling’
Anna Faris went nude in a teaser for an Avocados From Mexico commercial set to debut at the 2023 Super Bowl on February 12.
The 46-year-old actress portrayed Eve from the Garden of Eden with just her long blonde hair to protect her modesty in the commercial where she discovers the ‘forbidden fruit’.
Earlier this week, she made the move to switch it up and sign with a new agency after a two-year hiatus and her latest comedy film The Estate bombed in the box office.
Baring it all: Anna Faris, 46, went nude in a teaser for an Avocados From Mexico commercial set to debut at the 2023 Super Bowl on February 12
In the teaser of her first-ever Super Bowl commercial, the Mom alum nearly bares it all as she stumbles upon an avocado.
A narrator reads: ‘Since time began, there has been one fruit with the ability to change the world…’
‘One fruit that can alter history with one small bite,’ the voice continued as Faris splits open an avocado and is seen with a bite of food in her mouth. ‘One fruit with the ability to make everything better.’

On the topic of deciding to go naked, the Scary Movie actress told People that she ’embraced’ baring it all and was ‘really proud’ of the commercial.
‘When I realized that the wardrobe in my trailer was a tiny little thong and these jelly-like bra things – I guess they’re just nipple covers – I thought to myself, “All right, this is what my beautiful day is going to look like”,’ she said.
‘I felt really proud that I’m kind of at this place in life where I could spend a lot of time feeling modest and insecure, or I just embrace it.’

‘There was also a lot of other minimally-dressed, young, very beautiful people,’ she said. ‘And I just thought, I’m just accepting this is just rad.’
‘We’re just in the Garden of Eden, which is glorious,’ the mother-of-one added. ‘They created the most beautiful set, and we were all in it together.’

The Baltimore native also said it was ‘unbelievably thrilling’ to work on this project with the avocado brand.
‘To be able to promote a product that I love so much – who doesn’t love Avocados From Mexico? – I’m really grateful, she said.
