It’s a stylistic and shooting decision that adds very little and ultimately distracts »

The showbiz blogger had been provoking the Us singer by intentionally coughing loudly by his bed in an attempt to wake him up. He later continued to antagonise O'Neal by following him around the house, smiling and blowing kisses provocatively.
