We all knew this day would come…and we can’t wait to hear the song about it! Us Weekly reports that Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy have ended their relationship of roughly three months, probably because Conor’s math tutoring lessons were getting in the way. Cause he’s a baby! “They quietly parted ways a while ago,” their source claims. “No hard feelings.” Now, Tay Tay has already tagged the liner notes for her new (tragically hopeful) Red song “Begin Again” with the phrase “Hannis Port” (referencing the Kennedys’ home base, as well as the location of her new home), but obviously there are other relationship specifics Taylor is bound to drop in upcoming albums that we can use identify which songs are about Conor. Because you know some of them will be. Or all of them. The girl bought a house in near Conor’s memaw, people! So if we ever seen any of these references, we know which romance inspired Taylor’s songwriting.
We guess there are two aspects of Fergie and Josh Duhamel‘s recent “opening up” (if you will) that we don’t get. Both the Black Eyed Peas singer and her life partner have acknowledged the skeezy stripper cheating scandal that rocked their relationship back in 2009. “When you go through difficult times it really makes you stronger as a unit. As a partnership. It does for us anyways. Our love today is a deeper love,” Fergie told Oprah for an Oprah’s Next Chapter interview that aired Sunday. “I’m actually happy that all that happened, because we wouldn’t be as strong as we are now,” Duhamel added. Okay, sure, but… here’s what we don’t understand:
We can only assume you’re still sort of peeved, Jessica Biel. You didn’t arrive at your A-list reception looking like a more athletic version of Barbie in your cotton candy princess dream gown just to watch a video of your husband’s friends kiiiiind of making fun of homeless people. Gawker has a clip of the video in question, a homemade congrats made by Justin Timberlake‘s friend Justin Huchel titled “Greetings from Your Hollywood Friends Who Just Couldn’t Make It.” In it, Huchel films indigent people in Los Angeles as they wish Justin and Jessica good luck with their nuptials. Needless to say, Gawker has already received a letter from Huchel asking them to yank it. Until they do, do yourself a favorite and take a look. Whaaa? Wedding? Why? What?
“Mr. Huchel made [the] video to be used and exhibited privately at Justin Timberlake’s wedding as a private joke without Mr. Timberlake’s knowledge,” Huchel’s lawyer told the site. We guess you could argue that JTimb’s pals were just trying (and failing) to do something clever or original, but come on. You’re going to go around specifically interviewing impoverished and transgender street people, in order to show it at a $6.5 million Italian wedding for the lulz? Read the room, guys! Read Jessica’s flawless clenched jaw and beautiful steely glare while you’re at it. Louis C.K., you ain’t.
Man, there’s something about that Chris Brown. No matter what he does, the pull he has on his lady loves (past and present) seems pretty undeniable, if not downright freaky. First came his controversial and surprising reunion with former girlfriend Rihanna, and now his latest ex Karrueche Tran is reportedly still pining after him. What gives?!
According to friends, Karrueche not only loves Brown, but also misses the second-hand fame she enjoyed while dating him and doesn’t want to “go back to being basic.” Because of this, she’s apparently willing to forgive Brown’s fling with Riri, as long as she can remain in his life. Her plan might be working, as the two were seen hanging out on Monday. Obviously we’d never pick sides on a Rihanna/Karrueche Tran hotness face-off, because that’s a battle we’d lose no matter what. But although she’s not as world famous as the record busting Riri, it’s hard to do better than the lovely Karrueche. She’s gorgeous! And Rihanna is, well, Rihanna! And these two goddesses are fighting over…Breezy? We quit trying to figure it out.
Head down to the gallery below for 15 of Karrueche Tran’s hottest pics! Maybe they’ll tempt Chris back…
Not again! Bobby Brownwas arrested in Los Angeles early this morning, racking up his second DUI of 2012. We had imagined it was pretty hard to get two DUIs in under a year, what with license suspension and other disciplinary actions. But that just goes to show you that L.A. is a hell of a place! Police told TMZ that Brown was pulled over around 1 AM for cruising “erratically.” Although to be fair to Bobby, we’ve driven in L.A. and “erratically” is pretty much the only way to do it. The cops caught a massive whiff of booze on Brown’s breath, and immediately administered a field sobriety test. After he failed, Bobby was brought downtown and booked for driving under the influence.
So, really, all that excitement about Mark Sanchez and Eva Longoria dating, and they’re already done? It feels like we just posted the news about their relationship. Well, we talked about it a little over a month ago, but we thought they were in the honeymoon period and had some mileage left in them. Eva even told her pal Mario Lopez on Extra, “No, Mark and I are, you know, fine. We’re happy just dating.” But a source tells People that the handsome New York Jets quarterback and his lovely lady have decided to call it quits, revealing, “Eva and Mark split amicably and remain friends. There is no drama.” To make it clear that this is no rumor, Sanchez’s spokesperson confirmed the split to US Weekly, saying, “Mark adores and respects Eva. It really was about scheduling more than anything else. They will remain close friends.” And it looks like the same source who spoke to People also gabbed to US Weekly, adding, “There was no drama. They just have completely different schedules and lifestyles. He likes to go out and have fun. She’s more focused on her career and her philanthropic work.” Who here thinks the “source” is from Longoria’s camp? We do! Oh well, there’s nothing wrong with a spot of summer lovin’. Next?
Is it us, or are people getting more creative with the insane lawsuits they file against celebrities? We’re sure famous people have to fight unsubstantiated suits all the time, but lately these lawsuits have been elevated to an art form. Remember that amazing Kim Kardashian/Conrad Murray/Bernie Madoff mash-up lawsuit from this summer? Just today we got word that a lawsuit was filed against Justin Bieber for allegedly, um, stealing someone’s credit card to purchase a penis enlargement. Even with the knowledge that there is no way Justin needs to steal money for a penis enlargement (or anything else, for that matter), the suit is only as bizarre as the lawsuit Rihanna had filed against her today, which claims she allegedly, um, gave Chris Brown herpes. A fake Chris Brown. Even odder still, these two bizarre lawsuits have a lot in common. So much in common, in fact, that it’s genuinely hard to say which one is more insane. Let’s try to parse it out, shall we?
Mouse boy! Between that denim shirt and those gawky front teeth, 12-year-old Ryan Gosling, “Canada’s only official Mousketeer,” just shoved the fact it’s Ryan Reynolds‘ birthday clean out of our brains. Hope you had a great day up until right now, Rey! “I hit the roof. It was so funny,” Gosling told CTV’s Canada AM about his being cast in Disney’s The Mickey Mouse Club in that adorably thick Canadian accent. Aside from the squee-worthy snippets of him playing the drums and dancing a spastic elbow-centric dance, Ryan definitely handles himself like a champ: cracking jokes about Florida, explaining what a tutor is and hoping Michael Jordan and Michael Jackson will stop by the show for a cameo. “That’s basically what the show’s aboot,” Baby Gosling smiles. Aboooot! Ryan Reynolds, who? Thank god Blake Lively didn’t see this clip a few weeks ago. She would have hopped on a plane…or a time machine.
Here comes a big score for Team Breezy. Rihanna and Chris Brown took their romance public on Saturday night as they attended the Beverly Hills launch party of Brown’s new fan website Qubeey. The two were caught getting cozy in a booth at the Playhouse nightclub, and this time it’s on camera!
According to witnesses, Chris was quite the Prince Charming during his private time with Riri. “He made her feel like a princess just by the little things he was doing,” one guest told Hollywood Life. ” He opened doors, pulled out her chair, you know, being charming Chris. He was being a gentleman and it was cute. They had a few kisses and some drinks…” Although they seemed very affectionate towards each other, Rihanna didn’t want their controversial reunion to steal headlines and tried to downplay her presence. “She loves him and anything she can do to support him she will. She wants to be by his side and show up for him and last night she did.”
You GUYS. We don’t know why this made our day but it really, really did. Page Sixhas reported that sources are whispering about Ashley Benson dating James Franco! Please tell us this blew your mind too? Of course it did. She’s a Pretty Little Liar and he’s … well … he’s James Franco of the Franco-freaky weird celluloid moments and facial scruff. And she’s Ashley Benson of vanilla perky perfectitude. Yes, she inspired us to make up a new word. Apparently the two have been spotted together on numerous occasions look very much like a couple. Of the sightings enumerated, we have Ashley and James sitting in a tree busted hanging out together in Washington Square Park earlier this month. Last week saw them walking hand-in-hand at the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride — and you know ain’t nothing more romantic that that, right? One source reveals, “They have been seeing each other for a little over a month, but things are going well.” While this sounds like the Franco-Benson union has been happening quite swimmingly, sadly their spokespeople have not been answering their calls, so we have t put it in the rumor department. But seriously — it’s a rumor we love!
