Here’s a closer look at some of today’s stories:

The 30-year feud

Mickey Rourke slammed Robert De Niro on Friday, saying he would “embarrass” the 76-year-old actor “severely” should their paths cross.

Posting a photo of De Niro to his Instagram, Rourke, 67, put the “The Irishman” actor on blast, seemingly referencing past comments made about Martin Scorsese’s crime drama.

“Hey Robert De Niro, that’s right i am talking to you, you big f–king crybaby,” Rourke began. “A friend of mine just recently told me that a few months back you’re quoted as saying to newspapers ‘Mickey Rourke’s a liar he talks all kind of s–t’. Listen Mr.Tough Guy in the movies, you’re the 1st person that ever called me a liar and it was in a newspaper.”

Rourke’s alleged feud with De Niro dates back three decades. He claimed in September that he was blocked from appearing in “The Irishman” because of De Niro.

August and Jada’s entanglement (song)

August Alsina is making the most of everyone’s interest in his “entanglement” with Jada Pinkett Smith. He recently released a new song called, you guessed it, “Entanglements.”

The singer dropped the song, which features Rick Ross, late on Saturday night, after which it became trending on Twitter by Sunday morning.

“Selling Sunset” star Amanza Smith was hospitalized almost two weeks after a churro-making session with her daughter Noah went terribly wrong.

“Right now my right arm looks like a mummy,” Smith joked with Page Six on Wednesday.

She explained that the hot grease “just exploded out of the pan” and “about two or three cups” of oil got on her wrist, arm and hand. The 43-year-old ended up sustaining third-degree burns.

“It was crazy … It looked like something out of an alien movie,” she said. “So I went to the burn unit at USC and they did a crazy, painful procedure and I was in bed for like a week.”
