Leonardo DiCaprio foundation awards $20M in eco-grants

Leonardo DiCaprio announced Tuesday that his eco-focused foundation has given more than $20 million this year in fresh grants to more than 100 organizations around the world.

From lion recovery and mangrove restoration to the defense of indigenous rights and better access to affordable solar energy, the actor announced the grants ahead of his appearance at a climate change conference at Yale University. He planned to use the appearance to urge more immediate steps to reduce the world's reliance on fossil fuels in favor of renewable energy sources.

"Our challenge is to find new ways to power our lives, employ millions of people and turn every individual into an advocate for clean air and drinkable water," DiCaprio said in a statement. "We must demand that politicians accept climate science and make bold commitments before it is too late."

The money increases the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation's giving to $80 million since 1998, the organization said in a statement.

Among nearly $3.6 million in new climate grants, for instance, is support of community organizations in the United States fighting for 100 percent renewable energy, money for mitigating climate change through mangrove re-planting in Somalia and a project that backs legal action holding major corporations in the fossil fuel industry liable for the effects of pollution.

The foundation also granted about $6.4 million for wildlife and land conservation projects. That work includes lion and elephant restoration and protection, conservation research in the Brazilian Amazon and a partnership with the local Maasai community in Kenya to conserve critical wildlife and wilderness there.

California Waterkeepers, a group that helps protect the state's coastal waters, and Ocean 5, which establishes marine reserves and combats illegal fishing in all five oceans around the globe, are among other recipients.

Ryan Phillippe’s ex-girlfriend, model Elsie Hewittfiled a lawsuit Monday claiming that the actor kicked and punched her and threw her down a flight of stairs during a drunken rage.

Hewitt claims that the incident happened during a fight July 3. People magazine obtained court documents in which Hewitt claimed the altercation occurred when she went to Phillippe’s home after a party. She also provided photos of bruises on her body from the alleged abuse.

She claimed she saw Phillippe “repeatedly abusing a panoply of legal and illegal drugs, including without limitation: cocaine, ecstasy, psychedelic mushrooms, and steroids” during the course of their relationship.

“Phillippe increasingly combined these drugs with excessive alcohol consumption and often exhibited symptoms attendant of poly drug and alcohol abuse, including mood swings and bouts of anger,” the court documents read.

A source close to the actor denied the claims and said that Hewitt was the one under the influence, Rare.us reported.

“Elsie showed up to Ryan’s house uninvited and under the influence a few days after he had broken up with her,” the source told People. “She physically attacked Ryan, caused a scene and refused to leave his home. As she was removed from the premises, she claims she fell and injured herself.”

“There is no restraining order presently in place of any kind. At the time it happened, there was a temporary [order], which was terminated only a few days after,” the source continued. “She has since tried to seek revenge and fame by sending glamour shots of herself to media outlets with a false story of domestic violence.”

The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed that Hewitt was granted an emergency protective order following the alleged attack; it expired July 12.

Hewitt is asking for no less than $1 million in damages.

Phillippe has hired a high-powered attorney and plans to file a lawsuit of his own for either defamation or malicious prosecution if her lawsuit is thrown out, according to TMZ. 

Phillippe, 43, has two children with Reese Witherspoon, to whom he was married for eight years. He also has a daughter with “Pitch Perfect” actress Alexis Knapp.

Markle reportedly has beautiful handwriting that led to a lucrative freelance career as a calligrapher. In a 2013 interview with Esquire, she said she’s done work for Robin Thicke and Paula Patton’s wedding invite and for Dolce & Gabbana. Once out 

She ran a lifestyle blog

Until April 2017, Markle ran TheTig.com, a lifestyle blog she began in 2014 that focused on food and travel and touched on politics.

“What began as a passion project (my little engine that could) evolved into an amazing community of inspiration, support, fun and frivolity. You've made my days brighter and filled this experience with so much joy,” she said in a message to readers.

She is a divorcee

Markle married producer Trevor Engelson in 2011 in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. They had been dating since 2004 and were engaged in 2010. Us Weekly reported that the couple quietly separated in August 2013. According to The Sun, they divorced later that year, citing “irreconcilable differences.”
