We absolutely hate perpetuating catfight rumors around here. The idea that women inherently hate each other makes us crazy. But for weeks now, we’ve been hearing stuff about Beyonce dissing her husband’s friend’s girlfriend, Kim Kardashian. To the point that we don’t think we can just stick our fingers in our ears and pretend that nothing’s happening there. Even if we hope that’s still the case. What happened is this: Jay-Z’s best friend TyTy‘s birthday party was in London over the weekend, and, according to MediaTakeout, when Beyonce heard that Kanye West was bringing his new ladyfriend along, she fought with Hov to try to get Kim uninvited. And when that didn’t work, she refused to come.
Any truth to this? Well, we do know that Kimye, Jay-Z, Rihanna, Rita Ora and others were all photographed leaving a private party at DSTRKT club in London on Saturday night. Beyonce was nowhere in sight. You know what else we know? That Beyonce has a 5-month-old baby at home and a major three-night concert gig in Atlantic City coming up on Memorial Day. So maybe, just maybe, jetting off to London didn’t seem like the most important use of her time.
We’re pretty much refusing to believe Star magazine’s report that Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale’s marriage is on the rocks — partly because our hearts can’t take any more celebrity divorces, partly because we haven’t seen any other corroboration. GossipCop says a source close to the couple calls the rumor completely false. But after Demi and Ashton, Katy and Russell, Heidi and Seal — need we go on? — we’re just a little gun-shy. So, don your rose-colored glasses with us and review the timeline of this match made in ’90s rocker heaven.
1995: Gwen and Gavin meet when No Doubt and Bush tour together (with the Goo Goo Dolls! Oh, the ’90s). Gavin described their first date to Details: “I threw a party in New Orleans just as an excuse to hang out with her. We drank a bunch of hurricanes and went around the French Quarter. We had our first kiss that night, just walking around, being careful to step over the puddles of pee. The next day we had that sort of cute, embarrassed, sober meet-up.”
2002: Gavin and Gwen get married.
Trouble in paradise? Because this sounds pretty fishy to us. Jessica Simpson‘s wedding to Eric Johnson is on hold according to sources. Not off, note, just put on a back burner as one insider claims, “he wedding isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t off. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just on hold while JessicaÃ‚Â sorts out some of the details.Ã¢â‚¬Â Apparently, Jess is getting a tad overwhelmed with all the planning causing her to hit the pause button because, “ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s starting to affect her relationship with Eric.”
But, they’re still good according to the various reports surrounding this rumor. Her NFL fiancee is willing to wait till she’s comfortable. Another source says, “He just wants them to be happy.Ã‚Â Eric says they could elope tomorrow or get married in three years. It almost doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t matter; he is convinced theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll spend the rest of their lives together.” We hope that Jess dismisses this story with as much elan as she did with the boob reduction report!
Well we can’t have this! UK website The Mirror is reporting that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are “on a break” at the moment. An “inside source” claims that the pair, who haven’t been attending many public events together recently, not like they did all that much in the first place, are taking time off and are just friends at the moment.
Says the source “Things have been a bit rocky for a while. They both have hectic work schedules, Rob in particular at the moment, and their phone calls were getting fewer and further between. They started to only see each other on set and began to drift apart until a general apathy developed. The excuses why they couldn’t meet up basically got weaker and weaker, and Rob figured they should officially cool things off and have some time to figure out what they each want.” While it’s true that the pair have been separated recently because Pattinson is busy promoting Water For Elephants, they’ve also been spotted on a movie date night where they were bombarded by fans, and were out enjoying dinner in Vancouver a few weeks ago. And before we start pouring one out for their relationship, we’d also like to point out that a different source at the studio told Celebuzz that Robsten is not on a break, saying “This is nothing new, they have been apart many times before.”
We’re gonna follow The Secret here and just keep thinking positive thoughts. If it takes all the brain power we have, we can WILL them to stay together forever.

We sort of figured that John Mayer‘s chances with the ladies were slim these days given his record as a bit of a dog who likes to blab about his conquests. That’s why we’re not really believing the rumor that Mayer is hooking up with Oscar-winner Kate Winslet, and we’re a little repulsed by the idea of it. Kate’s too classy for that, right? But Star Magazine reported that the two are secretly seeing each other, and the pairing makes no sense to us. “Kate Winslet is trying her best to keep her steamy new hookup under wraps,” Star reports. “But the newly single Oscar winner, 35, has been secretly spending time with notorious ladies’ man John Mayer, 33, Star has learned!”
We feel bad for Winslet, not just because of this rumor, but also because on the off-chance that it’s true, Jessica “Sexual Napalm” Simpson has got to be a tough act to follow.

rnrnWell, that certainly didn’t take long! Mere hours after it was reported that Kim Kardashian dumped her latest football-playing squeeze, Miles Austin, rumors have begun to circulate that the purse-a-holic has found herself a new man. According to the highly-trafficked (but not always highly-reliable) gossip blog MediaTakeOut.com, Kim Kardashian is “dating” Chris Brown, the scumbag poster child for violence against women. rnrnNow, before you prepare to write nasty things on Kim Kardashian’s Facebook wall, here’s what’s up: According to MTO’s “snitch,” Brown hit up Kim’s little brother, Rob, for his big sister’s digits. Rob provided them, and ever since, Kardashian and Brown have been texting (sexting?) ever since. Since Kim is physically incapable of leaving her home without informing the paparazzi of her whereabouts, we are almost 100% certain that the two haven’t gone out on what any of us would call a date, let alone getting to the point where they enter the Bone Zone; if they had, we would’ve seen the pictures. Still, a rumor is a rumor is a rumor, and since rumormongering is one of our favorite pasttimes here at TheFABLife, we thought we’d pass this juicy goss your way.rnrnSo, readers, now’s your chance to weigh in. What do you think of this unholy union? If the rumors were confirmed, would you be so upset that you would stop watching Kim’s show? Or is it time to forgive Chris Brown and move on with our lives? Be sure and let us know what you think in the comment section below! [Photo Credit: Getty Images, Splash News]
It’s no secret that we, along with millions of rabid fans, love Robert Pattinson. We’ve even had the pleasure of sitting within arm’s length of the gorgeous hair-fusser at the Remember Me roundtables. Sure, we drooled and our hearts raced as he entered the room, but it wasn’t his looks (okay, solely his looks) that resonated after his wrangler dragged him from the interview. It was his shocking modesty and charm that kept our butterflies aflutter. Despite his throngs of screaming fans, the dude genuinely seemed baffled why anyone gives a sh*t.
It’s because of this personal interaction that we refuse to believe the rumors that Mr. Nice Guy himself was a diva during the re-shoots of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse last week. Apparently Rob showed up a day late and gave director David Slade ‘tude throughout the following three 16-hour days on set, making the entire atmosphere tense. We can’t imagine Rob doing much more than workin’ his mop and giggling adorably, but even if he wasn’t happy as a clam, who would be chipper under the circumstances?
These re-shoots (or “pick-up shoots” as Summit is cautiously calling them) usually don’t bode well for a film’s quality. Let’s hope Eclipse just needed more gratuitous beauty shots of RP’s pretty face, a la Remember Me, to overshadow subpar acting. We went there, Twi-hards! [Source: E!; Photo: Getty Images]
