The Sun says Taylor Swift is dating British rock star Matt Healy. He is the lead singer of the group The 1975. A source tells the newspaper, “She and Matty are madly in love. It’s super-early days, but it feels right. They first dated, very briefly, almost ten years ago but timings just didn’t work out. Taylor and Joe actually split up back in February, so there was absolutely no crossover. Both Matty and Taylor have been touring over the past few weeks, so it’s been a lot of Face-Timing and texting but she cannot wait to see him again. But as two international megastars, they understand the pressures of one another’s jobs better than anyone, and are incredibly supportive of their respective careers. They are both massively proud and excited about this relationship and, unlike Taylor’s last one — which was very much kept out of the spotlight, deliberately — she wants to ‘own’ this romance, and not hide it away. Taylor just wants to live her life, and be happy. She’s told pals Matty is flying to Nashville over the weekend to support her on the next leg of her tour.”

A source tells the magazine, "Harry was invited to the Met Gala, but knowing that both of them were definitely going, he avoided it like it was the bubonic plague. He was told by his team that they would take all necessary steps to ensure that there was no awkward run in with Olivia, but he was not trying to risk it at all. Harry has no desire to have a face-to-face encounter with Olivia at this time. Running into Olivia at an event with Emily would just be way too intense.''

TMZ says Carrie Fisher's sisters and brother were not invited to her Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony today. They claim Carrie's daughter, Billie Lourdes snubbed them.

The family released a statement saying, "In response to all of you asking whether or not we will be part of the celebration ... Strangely we won’t be in attendance to celebrate our sister, whom we adored. For some bizarre, misguided reason our niece has chosen not to include us in this epic moment in our sister’s career. This is something Carrie would have definitely wanted her siblings to be present for. The fact that her only brother and two sisters were intentionally and deliberately excluded is deeply shocking. We have all been grieving the loss of our favorite human for some years now…we have given Billie the space to do that in her own way. We have been nothing but loving and open, consistently. This isn’t about a photo op on Hollywood Blvd…this is about celebrating the permanency of Carrie’s legacy in this industry, taking her place with a star on the iconic Walk of Fame alongside our parents. We thank the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for honoring our sister in this way. May the Fourth Be with you Joely and Tricia Leigh Fisher".

AV Club says Billie has released a statement saying, ''Days after my mom died, her brother and her sister chose to process their grief publicly and capitalize on my mother’s death, by doing multiple interviews and selling individual books for a lot of money, with my mom and my grandmother’s deaths as the subject. I found out they had done this through the press. They never consulted me or considered how this would affect our relationship. The truth of my mom’s very complicated relationship with her family is only known by me and those who were actually close to her. Though I recognize they have every right to do whatever they choose, their actions were very hurtful to me at the most difficult time in my life. I chose to and still choose to deal with her loss in a much different way.''

This has been a roller-coaster season with a lot of great talent, so she is just doing her job.

Dear Fonseca,

My son is the talk of the town because of something he did during one of his recent basketball games. My boy is in 5th grade and is 11 years old. His coach is a maniac. Had I known this before the season started, I would have never signed him up for the league. The coach thinks he is in the NBA and screams at the kids and referees. My son refused to go back into a game because he was tired of being yelled at and wanted to make a statement and take a stand. After the game, the coach told him he let the team down. My son felt bad on the ride home, but said he sat out to stick up for himself and others. Some of the parents criticized him while others congratulated him. Did my son do the right thing? Is the coach right? Did he let the team down or take a much-needed stand?
