US Weekly Magazine says Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson have broken up after nine months of dating. A source tells the magazine, “They amicably split this week.''
A source tells the Irish Mirror newspaper, "Although they have a lot of love and respect for each other, the long distance and demanding work schedules made it really difficult to maintain a relationship."
A source tells Showbiz411, ''Back in Staten Island there is celebrating going on. Davidson is very close to his mother and sister, both of whom really hated Kim. His mother really put her foot down.''
A source tells the NY Post, "Kim is totally exhausted by this relationship and other things going on in her life. Pete is 28 and Kim is 41 — they are just in very different places at the moment. Pete is totally spontaneous and impulsive and wants her to fly to New York, or wherever he is on a moment’s notice. But Kim has four kids and it isn’t that easy. She needs to focus on the kids.''
Kevin Federline tells ITV that Britney Spears hasn't seen their sons in months. "The boys have decided they are not seeing her right now. It's been a few months since they've seen her. They made the decision not to go to her wedding. They were happy for her and wished her the best.
He adds the boys are embarrassed by the naked pictures their mother posts online. "I try to explain to them, 'Look, maybe that's just another way she tries to express herself.' But that doesn't take away from the fact of what it does to them. It's tough. I can't imagine how it feels to be a teenager having to go to high school. This whole thing has been hard to watch, harder to live through, harder to watch my boys go through than anything else. It's been tough. It's the most challenging thing I've ever had to do in my life."
Britney responded to the interview by posting: “It saddens me to hear that my ex-husband has decided to discuss the relationship between me and my children… As we all know, raising teenage boys is never easy for anyone… It concerns me the fact that the reason is based on my Instagram… it was LONG before Instagram ... I gave them everything ... Only one word: HURTFUL.”
Britney's husband, Sam Asghari, posted, “There is no validity to [Federline’s] statement regarding the kids distancing themselves and it is irresponsible to make that statement publicly. The boys are very smart and will be 18 soon to make their own decisions and may eventually realize the ‘tough’ part was having a father who hasn't worked much in over 15 years as a role model.”
The National Enquirer claims Gwen Stefani is allegedly using Botox fillers to appear younger.

Kevin Bacon tells Music Radar magazine that he stole money to buy his first Beatles album. “When I was a little kid,” Bacon recalled. “I had an AM radio, and I listened to soul music on WDAS and pop-rock on WFIL – this was before FM rock. I had a 45 record player, too, and I was always trying to score a single or even just borrow one from somebody. Then Sgt. Pepper came out, and it seemed like it was this new thing. When my father came home from work, he’d go into the bedroom to change his clothes and get ready for bed. He’d turn his pants inside out, and all of this change would fall out of his pockets and hit the floor. For some reason, he’d always forget to pick it up, so what I would do is, I’d go into my parents’ bedroom, and I would steal it. [Laughs] Eventually, I collected enough to buy Sgt. Pepper. It was the first album I ever bought. I might have even split it with my friend Harry – I’m not sure”.
Hollywoodlife.com says Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez allegedly believe that spending time apart makes their relationship stronger instead of weaker. A source tells the magazine, “They actually believe that spending time apart from each other makes them stronger and it is perfect because when they are apart, they are making an extreme amount of money. It is a win-win situation. They are always talking, texting, FaceTiming, and even camming when they are apart working. And the time that they spend away from each other makes reuniting again that much better. JLo loves the fact that she knows her husband will be there for her no matter what.''

The 53 year old smashed into a garage before careening into the apartment building. Her car then burst into flames. Anne was rushed to the hospital with severe burns. A source tells TMZ, "She was driving a blue Mini Cooper and crashed into the garage of an apartment complex.

Jeopardy host Mayim Bialik tells the Life Is Short podcast that she is not secretly married to her podcast partner, Jonathan Cohen. “He’s not my husband. We do our podcast as partners, so we actually prefer not to sort of talk about it. But most people realize that we’re partners in many ways. People know that we’re dating but we try not to [speak about it. We don’t want professional people to feel like they’re stepping into a couple’s therapy session, which is kind of what it feels like all the time. It’s just the nature of a podcast about mental health … It’s creating a podcast with an intimate partner.”
The National Enquirer claims Queen Elizabeth allegedly dislikes Meghan Markle because she is a threat to the monarchy. A source tells the magazine, “Her Majesty believes Meghan and her publicity-obsessed antics pose a real threat to the monarchy. As she faces her final days, Elizabeth detests this self-centred newcomer for tearing Harry from his family to start a new life together in America. The truth is it’s the Hollywood life Meghan always dreamed of for herself and Harry is her meal ticket. She hates that the Duchess of Sussex betrayed her. Now, Meghan seems set to use her title for an ambitious career in politics – a total no-no for British royalty.''

I read yesterday that Britney Spears' sons and ex-husband don't like her posting sexy selfies online. I am here to defend Britney. My ex-husband says I shouldn't be posting pictures of myself in my bathing suit or workout gear because it could embarrass our children. I think there's nothing wrong with showing off your body if you're in shape. It's showing our children that hard work pays off. He says it's too much skin. Is there anything wrong with posting sexy selfies?
