Walk of shame, anybody? The day after the pair of exes were allegedly spotted making out on a club dance floor, Chris Brown was photographed leaving Rihanna’s New York hotel. Late yesterday afternoon the R&B star was snapped exiting the Gansevoort Park Hotel, the place where Rihanna has been hanging her hat during her week-long stay in NYC. Brown had been seen leaving the Griffin nightclub at 3:50 AM that morning, with Rihanna departing herself immediately after. We would never make assumptions, allegations, or put two and two together; that’s just bad journalism. But they totally hooked up, you guys.
Just kidding! We obviously have no idea what actually went down at the hotel. Maybe Riri left her reading glasses at the club the night before, and Chris was just being a gentleman and dropping them off. Plus the Gansevoort boasts a lovely restaurant, so perhaps Chris was just swinging by because he had a hankering for some swordfish carppacio and he didn’t even see Rihanna. Or maybe they met up for some sweet controversial couple love making. We don’t know.
Another thing we don’t know is Brown’s status with his girlfriend, Karrueche Tran. Later that night he swung across town to pick her up at the Trump Soho, but rumor has it that Karrueche is not happy about sharing her man with his old flame. “Having the best day ever,” she tweeted sarcastically, punctuating the statement with an angry emoticon. Could it be a reference to Brown ditching her for a night on the town with Rihanna? Karrueche fans are blowing up her twitter feed, wondering why she’s letting Chris play her like a dang piano. To be honest, we’re kind of wondering ourselves.
The hot sun, the warm sand, the intoxicating scent of bug spray: yes, the summer time is prime time for hook-ups, both celebrity and original flavor. From the clam-chowder-and-madras-plaid love of Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy, to the surprise engagement of Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger (their wedding is going to be designed by Hot Topic, right?), check out our favorite hook-ups from summer 2012, and wish you hadn’t spent the last three months inside on your computer:
As we previously reported/celebrated, 22-year-old Taylor Swift has been inching her way into political royalty with her new possible flame, 18-year-old Conor Kennedy. This is one cougar tale we are definitely rooting for, and it looks like family matriach Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Senator Robert F. Kennedy, is in agreement. While promoting daughter Rory Kennedy‘s new HBO documentary Ethel, which happens to be about her, Ethel Kennedy showed her approval of T-Swift, according to RadarOnline. She denied rumors of playing matchmaker between her grandson, Conor, and Taylor but said that the Kennedys would be “so lucky” to have the country pop star in the family. Though Rory Kennedy wouldn’t speak to the romantic relationship unfolding between the young lovebirds, she bolstered the Kennedys’ endorsement of Taytay, commenting that Swift is a “great friend of all of ours.”
We are pretty excited that the Kennedys are onboard with this match. Read more…
When Us Weekly first reported spotting Katy Perry and John Mayer canoodling at Soho House in West Hollywood last week, we had mixed feelings — doubt, confusion, reluctant understanding, nostalgia for the Russell Brand days. And those feelings haven’t gone away now that we have photographic evidence that the two singers have been enjoying each other’s company. They were snapped in a car outside the Chateau Marmont, also in West Hollywood, on Wednesday night. A witness told Us they were holding hands across the table, kissing and laughing together.
We sort of get it. On his side, he clearly loves stunning, very famous ladies, with fantastic curves (or two out of three in the case of Taylor Swift). On Katy’s side, we did hear that the main rift between her and Russell was that he was ready to settle down while she still wanted to party it up and enjoy her youth, fame and fortune. Dating a notorious player like Mayer is certainly a good place to start when sowing wild oats. That’s probably what she thought she was getting with admitted sex addict Brand, after all.
For the love of music, though, please no one encourage these two to sing a duet. The thought of their clashing styles makes our ears hurt.

Bradley Cooper and Scarlett Johannson? Talk about a match made in beautiful people heaven! Hopefully you weren’t too excited about the reports that Cooper had rekindled his relationship with Zoe Saldana, because he and Johannson were spotted having a romantic meal at Wolfgang Pucks in the Bel Air Hotel last week. A witness told RadarOnline.com that the two “were definitely having more than a ‘friends’ dinner, it seemed pretty obvious they totally have the hots for each other.”
And we’re happy to report that chivalry is not dead! Cooper was a perfect gentleman as he stood up when ScarJo left for the restroom and again when she returned – how sweet! The witness also said that Cooper “seemed almost distracted by Scarlett’s beauty, especially since she was wearing a very low cut dress, and Scarlett was totally working her charms. She kept flipping her hair when she laughed at his jokes.”
This isn’t the first time rumors have soared about these two. After their on-screen hook-up in 2011, Life and Style reported that they were spotted dating off-set at NYC hot spot, Provacateur. It’s too soon to say anything definite, but we’re looking forward to seeing more from the He’s Just Not That Into You co-stars!

It sounds like Kris Humphries and Myla Sinanaj never had that conversation. You know, the one where they decide to date each other exclusively and slam each other’s ex-fathers-in-law on Twitter. Or maybe they did, and Kris forgot to inform his lawyer? The gossips say the b-baller and the 25-year-old hotel employee have been dating since January, but his reps say he hasn’t dated anyone since his breakup with Kim Kardashian. Anyway, Sinanaj, who was snapped on the beach with Humphries just last Saturday and has been in the tabs nonstop ever since, got a nasty wake-up call yesterday. According to RadarOnline, the New Jersey Nets player’s lawyer, Lee Hutton, left Myla a voicemail yesterday asking her to stop calling herself his girlfriend.
“There are text messages between Kris and Myla which clearly prove that she is lying about being his girlfriend,” a source told the site. “Kris’ lawyer has also drafted a cease and desist letter that he will be sending to Myla which will also order her to stop making these claims. The timing of Myla making these claims is wreaking havoc on his upcoming divorce proceedings, because he will most certainly be asked about dating her during his upcoming deposition.”
We wonder what kind of havoc could be caused in Kris’ divorce, really. Does the law make a distinction between hookups and girlfriends?

If there’s one thing we absolutely know about Rihanna, it’s that she doesn’t give a hoot what anyone thinks of her living her life to the fullest. In typical badass Riri form, the pop singer shows off how she relieves stress, posting two Instagram pictures of herself enjoying the “best stress reliever,” which in this glam girl’s world means making it rain on scantily clad dressed strippers. Mocking critics who have condemned her for not behaving like a role model she added the hashtags to the picture of an unknown stripper backing it up on her: “#RoleModelS— #NaviS—.” Read more…
There really is something about Cameron Diaz. The lovely leggy blonde has had dozens of leading men in her nearly 20 years as a film star, but she’s had almost as many in her personal life too! Cam has been romantically linked to such diverse (some would say “random”) dudes as Justin Timberlake, baseballer Alex Rodriguez, and even self-proclaimed Mind Freak, Criss Angel. But now it looks like she can add Diddy to her list of snuggle buddies.
Eyewitnesses told the New York Post that she and Diddy were mackin’ it at at the Dream Downtown Hotel on Saturday night. It was apparently after 1 a.m. when Diddy arrived at her table, and soon the bottles of Ciroc started flowing. “They were kissing and making out,” and being “very affectionate” as they danced before leaving together in the wee hours of the morning, the source said. Despite this, reps for both stars claim that the meeting was purely platonic. “They just friends,” said Diddy’s publicist, while Diaz’s agent insists that they were simply discussing a movie project. Sure…

Rihanna is not a fan of the single life. In fact, she recently told Vogue UK that it’s “a pain in the ass.” But luckily Ri Ri doesn’t seem to have that problem anymore, as it looks like she has a new man in her life: model and boxer Dudley O’Shaughnessy. He was reportedly “hand-picked” by Rihanna to appear in her upcoming video for “We Found Love,” and it must have been a pretty thorough screening process because the two have been seen partying around London until the break of dawn.
British newspaper The Daily Mail claims that Rihanna first got cuddly with Dudley on her vid shoot, where’s she sat in his lap and flashed her low-cut top. “Rihanna was making no secret that she fancied the pants off Dudley,” the paper reported. Not sure what she sees in him? Check out the gallery below. We’re sure you’ll think of something…

When she wasn’t out at a strip club with Kieran Culkan or doggedly tracking down the dreaded Hollywood Phone Hackers, Scarlett Johansson found time to party through the night with none other than Justin Timberlake. The two have been friendly since 2007, when the actress appeared in the music video for JT’s “What Goes Around Come Around.” But Scarlett was dating future husband Ryan Reynolds at the time, and Justin was wrapped up tight with Jessica Biel. Now that their famous former flames are out of the picture, sparks between them were able to fly freely.
The duo apparently spent last Wednesday night “hardcore flirting” at New York’s trendy 10ak club. “Other guys were trying to talk with Scarlett,” a fellow clubber told US Magazine, “but she was only focused on Justin.” Although to be fair, most “other guys” aren’t Justin Freakin’ Timberlake. The two ended up closing the joint, not leaving until the break of dawn. After a pizza dinner/breakfast, ScarJo reportedly invited the singer back to her pimp midtown apartment. “He wasn’t even lowkey,” a witness noted of Timberlake’s arrival. He even greeted the doorman and introduced himself as “Justin.” What a gentleman. Although publicists for both sides deny the sunrise rendez-vous took place, insiders say that chemistry between the two is common knowledge. “They’ve hooked up several times over the years,” says a friend. Maybe Justin was the one those pics were meant for…
