Terry Richardson Allegedly Bargains ‘Vogue’ Shoot for Sex; Gwyneth Paltrow's GOOP Is Swimming in Debt

And Nike is discontinuing its FuelBand.

Terry Richardson Allegedly Bargains Vogue Shoot for Sex: On Sunday, model Emma Appleton posted a screenshot photo to her Instagram account (which has since been deleted) of an alleged message from the notorious photographer Terry Richardson that read, “if i can fuck you i will book you in ny for a.shoot for Vogue.” A spokesperson for Richardson—who has been accused of sexual assault by models numerous times—denied the authenticity of the message, telling Buzzfeed, "This is obviously a fake. Terry did not send this text." Vogue's PR representative also emphasized that the magazine has not worked with the photographer since 2010 and confirmed it has no plans to do so in the future [Gawker]

Gwyneth Paltrow's GOOP is Swimming in Debt: Shedding light on the inner workings of actress Gwyneth Paltrow's luxury lifestyle blog, GOOP, Radar Online obtained the “brand’s” corporate documents that plot out its financial margins for 2011 and 2012. While swimming in $1.5 million of debt, and expenses surpassing the blog’s profits, Paltrow, as well as the company's CEO Sebastian Bishop, somehow still managed to receive a sizeable increase in pay during that time period—from $200,000 to $600,000.

Nike To Discontinue FuelBand: In an effort to place more focus on developing fitness software, Nike has ceased operations on its hardware development team, including the fashionably wearable FuelBand. The software in development would be compatible with other non-Nike related devices, including Apple’s iWatch. However, the athletics company still plans to “improve the Nike+ FuelBand App, launch new METALUXE colors, and… sell and support the Nike+ FuelBand SE for the foreseeable future.” [Fashionista]
