Taylor Swift tells Rolling Stone magazine that her father is her biggest cheerleader. “My dad is a Chatty Cathy, the social butterfly; friendly; knows everybody in the whole world by six degrees; tells me that every performance is the greatest he's ever seen, every new outfit is the coolest. Constant cheerleader.”

Teddy Swims tells that he's learning how to get out of his own way.“I'm kind of an emotional toddler. I'm getting more of a grasp on what I want to say and how to say it, how to talk about my feelings more. I feel like the more I do it, the longer I do it, the more honest I become, the more I get out of the way of things. I'm learning to get out of the way and let the creative flow just be what it is now.”

The Daily Mail says Justin and Hailey Bieber decided to start a family due to recent health challenges. A source says, 'With both of them having various health struggles, they decided now, as opposed to trying a little later, would be the best time to have children. They are still young and will be able to enjoy being parents. As they grow old, they can watch their kids grow old too.'

Justin Bieber's mother, Patti Mallette, tells People magazine that Hailey Bieber is not pregnant with twins. "No not twins lol I wish. I just mean in general. Hopefully, they will have more than one eventually. They will make beautiful babies whenever they have them. One is enough for now."

Page Six says Creed frontman Scott Stapp and wife Jaclyn are divorcing after 18 years of marriage. Jaclyn filed for a divorce in June 2022, but the split was only recently finalized. A source shared that despite efforts to save the marriage, the couple decided it was over. The split comes as Creed prepares for a reunion tour this Summer.

Life & Style Weekly claims Travis Kelce is allegedly feeling pressure to propose to Taylor Swift. A source says, “The timing is right. They’ve been together almost a year now and they’re madly in love, so it makes sense that they’d be discussing marriage. The big moment – and the ring – need to be super special. But Travis is a ‘grand gesture’ kind of guy, so no matter what or when he finally asks her, it will be an experience that they’ll remember forever.”

The News International says Chris Rock and Will Smith may have reconciled following their run-in at the Oscars. The website quotes Cedric the Entertainer as saying, “That was one of those times, it was a moment in time where you're dealing with something that's very personal and family. It got done in front of everybody else. But the thing about when something personal happens, and I always say a smack is more personal than a punch. And so when someone smacks a person, you realize that something is very personal happening there. And that's what we didn't know as an audience. But both Chris and Will are able to, in hindsight, realize ‘we’ve both crossed the line and like, you know what, you good, my man? Thank you. And we'll get through it.’ And that's the thing about life, man, we can react and we can look at things and then we turn ourselves into these all knowing of a situation because we watched it and thought we knew exactly what happened. That's not true.”

In Touch Weekly says Britney Spears' family believes she needs help after her recent meltdown at the Chateau Marmont. A source says, ​“They’re considering their options. Britney’s been on a downward spiral for a while now. What happened at the hotel was like a flashback to 2008.”

The Daily Mail says Rob Gronkowski allegedly injured a girl during Tom Brady’s roast.  He spiked a shot glass. A piece of glass hit the fan in their cheek. There is speculation on whether the injured individual will take legal action. A witness says, “He takes it and he has so much energy he doesn’t know what to do. He slams it. All of us are like, “What just happened?” The girl in the front row has like a piece of shot glass like hanging out of her cheek. And I’m not talking about a little thing, her whole cheek is red. She looks like a mime.”

The Daily Mail says a Springfield, Ohio woman knitted a life-size doll that looks like Jason Momoa. Gail Lyn Bragery crocheted the doll and then sold it for $300. It has green eyes and a goatee. She set up a Facebook page, called 'Gail Lyn's Perfect Boyfriends, ' and plans to sell more Momoa dolls.  The dolls take three weeks to make.They are meant to keep a woman company when her partner is not around. 

Life & Style Weekly says Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have allegedly turned their marriage around. A source says, “A lot of their friends were really worried it would end in divorce. They’d been fighting a lot, and their schedules have been challenging for them. Gwen and Blake felt they had fallen out of love. They prioritized spending time with one another and got back to doing the things that brought them together in the first place, like making music. Gwen and Blake have had their ups and downs. While it hasn’t always been a bed of roses, they like to think they made it to the other side.’’

The Daily Mail says Jennifer Lopez's team considered canceling her "This Is Me... Now" tour due to poor ticket sales. She insisted on moving forward despite tickets being scalped online for as little as $10. A source says, 'JLo is over exposed and has put herself out there way too much. First it was her marriage, then her never-ending honeymoon, followed by a movie, then an album release. Then she felt the need to tell her and Ben's love story in a documentary that she funded called The Greatest Love Story Never Told. And now Benny allowed her to go on a massive tour. It is just too much.' 

The Sun says Kelly Clarkson's bare feet are creating tension with her talk show co-workers.  A source says,  "Kelly's barefoot habit has become a hot topic behind the scenes. It's not just about hygiene, it's about maintaining a certain image. You wouldn't catch anyone else flaunting bare feet inside NBC, but she gets away with it.  Kelly's objective is to create a comfortable, chill environment for her audience, making them feel at home. She wants viewers to feel at home, like they can just kick off their own shoes and relax along with her.’’

Celebrating The Soaps says ''Golden Bachelor'' star Gerry Turner is denying recent reports that he is dating again. He is not seeing anyone new. Turner has been spending time with his father and dog.  A source says, "Gerry is focused on changing his image post-show and is looking forward to reconnecting with his supporters."

Dear Fonseca,

My Mother's Day was turned upside down yesterday by my husband's gift. Our entire family got together at my parents’ house. I was stunned when I opened my present. My husband gave me a vase in a department store box. Everybody oohh'd and aahh'd except me. He bought the vase at Dollar Tree. I know this because I was looking at the same one. He then placed the vase in a box from an expensive store. I pulled my twin sisters aside and told them what he did. One laughed and said I'm lucky to get anything at all after being married for 15 years. The other sister told me to call him out because he is cheap and a liar. I haven't said anything yet. Should I? Which sister's advice should I follow?
