Famous men have a reputation for dating women who are much younger, and rightfully so, it happens all the time, but two can play that game. Celebrity women have been snatching up younger men for years now, and as evidenced by 40-year-old Heidi Klum‘s recent romance with 27-year-old art dealer Vito Schnabel, sometimes the guy isn’t even famous. Clearly, Klum’s over her divorce from longtime lover and superstar singer Seal. First, she was spotted making out with Schnabel at an Oscars after party, and now the new couple is jetsetting in Paris, flaunting their relationship for the public. Heidi’s not the only cougar in the game, though, and she’s not the only one who doesn’t care if her beau doesn’t have celebrity status to match. Usually good looks and a hefty bank account will do the trick, but as you’ll see in our breakdown of When Famous Women Date Non-Famous Younger Men, sometimes that isn’t even necessary.
You can never secretly date for too long in Hollywood, right? The latest couple who tried to keep their budding relationship on the down-low are Adam Brody and Leighton Meester. We will forever associate Adam with The O.C and Leighton, of course, with Gossip Girl, but they two genetically blessed ones starred together in The Oranges which released in 2011. Blair Waldorf dating Seth Cohen — who woulda thunk it. A source helpfully explains that, “they were always close and friendly” and that they’ve been “hanging out.” The couple have also been travelling together, trying to get away from prying cameras and eyes, we’re sure, and were seen together at the fancy pants Siam Kempinski Hotel in Bangkok last month. The couple that travels together stays together? We hope that’s the case because the more we think about, the more adorable the two seem. They were also busted on Twitter by some bystanders as they caught some exhibitions at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art this month. So, is this one going to be officially confirmed or are we going to have to be okay with more sightings? Either way, good luck you two!

So, for better or worse, this is happening. Taylor Swift and Harry Styles are an item and that keening sound you hear is poor Conor Kennedy wailing in a corner. Haylor’s latest bout of PDA — no, no kissing yet — was when they were photographed last night, holding hands while leaving the Crosby Hotel, as you can see above. This follows their Central Park Zoo date and their possible walk of shame, all of which went down just a couple of days ago. We have thoughts about this.
1. Harry’s pants are really, really tight.
2. Is it just us or are they color coordinating already?
3. Taylor Swift should officially be named as the latest “It Player” in town.
4. Are we allowed to call someone who is 22 a cougar? This is her second younger man successively.
5. Taylor’s probably already got break-up lyrics planned in time for them splitting up.
6. When did we turn so cynical about young love? But seriously … this.
7. *cough* publicity set-up *cough*
8. How does this woman always have the best shoes? Oh right, because she’s young, famous and rich.
9. Whose hair is shinier: his or hers?
10. Their publicists are probably cracking open a bottle of Pinot as we type, toasting, “Mission accomplished.”

You GUYS. We don’t know why this made our day but it really, really did. Page Six has 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!

Last night Detroit Tiger’s pitcher Justin Verlander threw a complete game shutout, leading his team into the American League Championship Series. And that’s not even the best news. After much rumor and speculation, the champion baseballer’s family has confirmed that he is also dating bikini goddess Kate Upton! Let’s just pause and reflect on the fact that this guy is living out every 13 year-old’s fantasy. Thank you.
Celebuzz spoke to Justin’s grandfather, who confirmed the rumor as any proud pop-pop would. “I heard he has been on dates with a Sports Illustrated girl. I saw a photo, she’s beautiful,” he said, in a voice we imagine sounding like the grandfather from Rugrats. “They make a good looking pair because he’s a good looking man too.” Because he takes after my side of the family, we added in his mind. “I do know he’s on the dating scene. Justin is a fine boy and whoever he ends up with is lucky. He’s not only a great baseball player, he’s a great guy.” Gawwww, grandpa.
Rihanna and Chris Brown are by no means an official couple yet, but there are apparently a lot of people who would be happy to see it happen. Among these folks are Oprah Winfrey and Rihanna’s own father! Riri’s pop Ronald Fenty recently spoke to In Touch magazine about the man convicted for assaulting his daughter in 2009. And he you know what? Ron thinks he’s a standup guy! “I love Chris, man. He’s got so much charisma. And he’s always had so much respect for me. That’s what I love about him. He’s always shown me respect.”
Ronald, a recovering drug addict who physically abused Rihanna’s mother in the past, has forgiven Brown for what he did, and urges the world to the same. “I think everyone makes mistakes and they shouldn’t be held to them forever. Everyone should be forgiven once. There’s a lot more to Chris than the whole world knows.” That may sound like a surprising move for a parent, but bear in mind that this is also the dude who called Rihanna fat. Read that back to yourself. Rihanna. Named Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive last year. Fat. We’re not confrontational people, but we may have a problem with Mr. Fenty and his opinions. But it’s hard to argue with his last statement on the matter, we guess. “I know they love each other. They always have. She’s happiest when she’s around him, and as long as she’s happy, I am happy and the whole world should be too.”
We’re just saying, wouldn’t it be an amazing plot twist if Jesse St. James returned to Glee, only to start dating Zachary Quinto? First of all, Rachel would be super pissed (though, let’s face it, not entirely surprised). Second of all, Kurt’s head would explode off his shoulders and fly around the room like a fabulous, shocked balloon. While we won’t hold our collective breath on any Zachary Quinto cameos this season (or that balloon thing, because come on), the Star Trek actor did confirm that he is dating Glee star Jonathan Groff. “I’m incredibly happy, I’m incredibly lucky,” he told Out Magazine about his relationship. Jonathan’s no Wade Adams, but he’ll do. He’ll do just fine.
The American Horror Story actor also opened up about his decision to come out last October. “One of the defining conversations that I had with myself was that absolutely no good can come from me staying quiet about [my sexuality]. Literally, no good can come from it. But if I take the step to make the acknowledgment and be honest, so much good could potentially come from it,” Quinto explained. We’re just glad we live in a time where we can get equally squeal-y about adorable gay couples as we can about straight ones. We’re so excited, we could break out in a choreographed song-and-dance number! If that was a thing that happened in real life!

Ugh, Katy Perry and John Mayer, you know how to play us like a fiddle. Clearly you want us to know/think your love is continuing to blossom despite rumors of your break-up, as evidenced by your date at Little Door last night. How do we know your romantic evening was at least partially for our benefit? Luckily for you, we’re something of a celeb dating detective agency. We’re like Sherlock Holmes, but for secret A-list canoodling. We also rock a fierce deerstalker from time to time. Those never go out of style.
People’s Exhibit A: If John and Katy weren’t interested in letting any of us plebs know the details of their dating life, they would have done what all normal couples do: order in Chinese and watch Creep Show 2 on Netflix. In private. No paps would mean none of us normals would be the wiser, so it seems pretty obvious they wanted to be photographed together.
We don’t get it. We just do not get it. Our minds and hearts must not be able to process the powerful sexual voodoo performed by John Mayer, because we find it baffling that Katy Perry is allegedly hooking up with him…again. Is she the only person in American who hasn’t heard Taylor Swift’s “Dear John”? Apparently so, because according to Us Weekly the two were spotted canoodling at the Soho House in West Hollywood. “They were affectionate, holding hands and cuddling!” their source claims. But…but that Playboy interview! And his hat, Katy! His hat!
As we regrettably mentioned, this isn’t the first time Katy and John have cuddled and held hands. That’s all they were doing; we refuse to believe otherwise. On the night before she met her ex-husband-to-be Russell Brand at the 2009 VMAs, Perry allegedly indulged in the baffling charms of Mr. Mayer. Whoa…has John Mayer just been waiting in the wings this entire time, just hoping that Perry would one day be single again? Apparently no marriage can withstand Mayer’s raw animal charisma! We just threw up in our mouths a little bit typing that!
Demi Lovato, we know we’re not your mom, or your sister, or one of your roommates, but despite that extremely obvious fact, we have still somehow seen you in your unmentionables more than if we had actually shared a bathroom with you. Do you ever think about that? Salacious Tyler Shields photos aside, we’ve seen your personal business with a frequency we never could have planned or wanted, and now we hear you might allegedly be dating One Direction‘s Niall Horan via Skype? We’re not telling you how to live your life, we’re just saying…maybe ease into the exchange of electronic salaciousness a little more slowly this time. What would even call sexiness on Skype? Skexing? Typting?
“We’ve spoken alright, yeah… So, I got in contact with her, she’s really nice,” Horan revealed during On Air With Ryan Seacrest today. “Um, I don’t know what’s going to happen.” Nothing that will remain permanently on the internet, we hope! Niall also admitted that you two have been chatting long distance via Skype, saying, “She’s a cool girl.” Did you know you can record Skype video? That seems like a disaster waiting to happen. No, we weren’t saying that as a suggestion, Demi…Demi! Get back here with that head set!
