Jenner, 20, and her boyfriend of five months, rapper Travis Scott, 25, have been telling their friends the news, according to TMZ’s Friday story. TMZ said it could not verify it, but Scott may have told friends they are expecting a girl.

BuzzFeed News, citing “a source with knowledge of the situation,” also reported that Jenner is pregnant.

“They started telling friends a few weeks ago,” a source told People. “The family has known for quite some time. She is REALLY excited and so is Travis!”

TMZ reported that Jenner has been posting older photos on her Instagram as of late, and in a recent Snapchat, she posed for a photo in a baggy T-shirt. Recent photos Jenner posts are from the chest-up.

The latest Instagram photo she posted Thursday was at least from November of last year, according  to BuzzFeed News.

Jenner is due in February, a source told People. 

Representatives for Scott and Jenner have not responded to reports.

Daddy Yankee's fans fill 4 trucks with donations in NY

When Daddy Yankee calls, people answer. So when the reggaeton star went on social media to ask fans to help victims of Hurricane Maria in his native Puerto Rico and the earthquake in Mexico, his fans delivered with an avalanche of donations.

Diapers, bottled water, mosquito repellent and batteries for flashlights were some of the provisions gathered on Thursday night through the initiative, which was organized in a matter of hours with the help of the Puerto Rican Family Institute, the Hispanic Federation and the National Puerto Rican Day Parade.

"I believe is a fact of life for the fortunate to help the unfortunate," the reggaeton superstar said in a statement on Friday, as he thanked his fans and volunteers for helping making this happen. "I am sure that God blesses the happy giver and those who help the ones in need."

Daddy Yankee also joined forces with the food bank Feeding America, which will bring donations to 78 municipalities in Puerto Rico, according to his Facebook page.

Daddy Yankee's publicist Manya Nevarez said he will continue his call for donations at other stops on his tour, and plans to visit Puerto Rico late next week to present some of the donations himself.

Batman comic series to feature scenery from Portland, Maine

Holy hometown, Batman!

A highly anticipated Batman comic book series will have some locations that might look familiar to Maine residents. The Portland Press Herald reports Portland City Hall, Old Port's cobblestone streets and various red brick buildings will be a part of Gotham in DC Comics' "Batman: White Knight."

The artist and writer is Sean Murphy, who recently moved to Portland. He says he was inspired by the city feeling like a "perfect foggy New England town."

Murphy says the series centers on a seemingly reformed Joker who runs for City Council and uses his media campaign to blame Batman for the city's crime.

DC representatives say the series is one of the top three best-selling comic books for October.

The first issue goes on sale Oct. 4.

Hannity boycott call fizzling, at least publicly

More than a month after a liberal advocacy group publicly called on advertisers to boycott Sean Hannity's show on Fox News Channel, luxury carmaker Cadillac has been the only new company to publicly back away from the program.

While Hannity has appeared largely impervious to the efforts against him, opponents say they're not giving up.

Meanwhile, Hannity is ascendant at Fox. His show, which averaged nearly 2.7 million viewers in August, was the second most-popular program in cable news behind MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, according to the Nielsen company. Starting Monday, Hannity moves back to the 9 p.m. Eastern time slot he previously occupied, taking Maddow on directly.

Fox wouldn't discuss his advertising.

Cadillac pulled its commercials after becoming aware of commentary on Hannity's program following violence at a rally held by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia.

"In the strongest possible terms, we at Cadillac condemn any form of racism or discrimination," company spokesman Andrew Lipman said. "We have a zero tolerance policy as it pertains to any of our employees and business partners."

Angelo Carusone, president of the media watchdog that called for the boycott, Media Matters for America, said other luxury carmakers Land Rover and Mercedes Benz have also abandoned Hannity. A Land Rover spokesman, Stuart Schorr, said that while the car is currently not being advertised on "Hannity," it is not participating in a boycott and that its advertising strategy "evolves and changes." Mercedes representatives did not return queries about the company's plans.

Media Matters said some dozen advertisers have told the organization they will not purchase commercials in Hannity's show in the future; some have current contracts and are staying put until those commitments are completed.

Efforts against Hannity were partly triggered by his promotion of a story suggesting that a Democratic National Committee staffer who was killed last year may have been involved in a leak of Wikileaks documents. Hannity is the most visible and vehement supporter of President Donald Trump on the most influential media outlet for conservatives.

Carusone said Hannity had gone beyond mere commentary, pointing to the frequent appearance of Trump attorney Jay Sekulow on the program. He said he wouldn't attack a media figure's commercial viability because of just one or two comments.

"It's one thing to have political perspective," he said. "It's another thing to see it as a political campaign."

Boycott efforts frequently go nowhere, but Carusone's track record made this one worth watching. He was involved in trying to get advertisers to back away from Bill O'Reilly this past spring, following reports of settlements made in sexual harassment cases against him. Advertisers, and Fox, quickly abandoned him.

Prior to that, Carusone helped persuade advertisers to stay away from Glenn Beck's Fox News Channel show. That effort took more than two years, but Beck's show was slowly choked to the point where it had too few advertisers to be feasible financially.

That's the methodical strategy he's employing with Hannity, trying to convince media buyers and companies that the show is too controversial for their products. His prediction: "As long as he continues the same kind of programming he's been providing the last couple of years, I think that he is not commercially viable by Christmastime."

However, the number of people who clicked on a FireHannity.org website - in the thousands during the summer - has slowed to a trickle, said Nate Lerner of the Democratic Coalition Against Trump, which operates the site. That group hopes to regain momentum with a new app.

"The energy of the boycott Hannity movement has definitely died since the announcement of the last month," Lerner said.

The boycott call angers Hannity's supporters. Members of the Tea Party Patriots responded with their own protest calls to companies that said this spring they were backing away from Hannity's show. The financial services firm USAA felt the backlash and responded by taking advertising off all opinion-based programming. It then reinstated it on all the shows days later.

Many Trump supporters feel Hannity was one of the few people in the media who had their backs, and they want to be there for him, said Jenny Beth Martin, president of the Tea Party Patriots.

"What we're seeing from the left is an effort to bully people to silence them," she said. "They want people to agree with them or not say anything at all."

Mendes donates $100k to Mexican earthquake relief

The Canadian singer-songwriter and his manager, Andrew Gertler, have gotten things started with a $100,000 donation to the fundraiser on GoFundMe's Crowdrise platform. The money will go to "directly to disaster relief in Mexico" via American Red Cross.

In an email to The Associated Press, Mendes said he was in his hotel getting ready for his show the next day when the quake hit.

"The whole building was shaking pretty severely, but we were fortunate to be somewhere that was structurally sound enough to withstand it," he wrote. "At first I didn't know what was happening, and then pretty quickly, after about 30 seconds, I clued in that it was an earthquake. Shortly after that we heard sirens and the emergency evacuation announcements from the hotel, and were able to make it down to the street safely."

"There were just so many people out on the streets trying to stay safe and that had been evacuated from buildings, and as we were walking saw quite a few buildings that had collapsed facades, windows shattering on the streets," he wrote.

The quake has reduced buildings to rubble in Mexico and left hundreds dead. Mendes said he sends his prayers to everyone effected and would love to return when he can.

"I want to come back as soon as possible. It is an incredible city and the people there are so strong and resilient," he said.

Showtime making series of Clinton-Patterson thriller

Showtime has won a bidding war to develop former President Bill Clinton and powerhouse author James Patterson's upcoming thriller, "The President is Missing," into a television series.

The network announced the deal Friday, months away from the book's publication next June.

In the collaboration with Patterson, Clinton provides an insider's perspective of having been in the White House. It's the first time that Clinton has helped write fiction.

Showtime's affiliation with CBS, and the corporation's boss Leslie Moonves, helped seal the deal. Moonves knows Clinton, and Patterson helps with the production of the CBS series "Zoo" and "Instinct."
