POP NEWS: Harvey Sued by Jet Company; Paltrow Starts Book Venture

Television game show host Steve Harvey is being sued by an executive jet company while Oscar winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow decides to start her own book publishing company.

Steve Harvey is currently being sued by a Nashville company that leases and customizes private jets. The company, Business Aircraft leasing, Inc., claims that Harvey owes them $200,000 for custom alterations to a private jet. The company further claims that Harvey, 58, had agreed in writing to $400,000 worth of customized work for a Gulfstream jet that he had agreed to lease.

Harvey, currently the host of the television game show, The Family Feud, was said to have made an oral promise to lease the jet for $97,000 a month, according to USA Today. The alterations included interior changes to the seating as well as the overall interior design of the aircraft.

Harvey claims to have paid half of the money before deciding that he didn’t want to lease the Gulfstream. Both Harvey and Business Aircraft Leasing will proceed to trail and allow the court to determine the outcome and the amount owed, if any, by Harvey.


Academy Award Winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow has decided to launch her own publishing house. This all follows the success of her well received cookbooks. The name of her new publishing house will be called Goop Press, according to USA Today.

The publishing venture will have the same name as her famous lifestyle blog, Goop. The new launch will coincide with the April release of her new cookbook, It’s All Easy. This will be followed up by a beauty book due out later in the fall. Paltrow had originally launched her blog in 2008 and it was immediately followed up by her Goop website.

Paltrow’s site, Goop.com, is extremely popular and successful as visitors to the site can find the very best and latest in fashion and can even access hotel recommendations. In 2008 she released her first successful cookbook and followed that up with two more cookbooks in 2011 and one on 2013.
