Ace Showbiz says the producers of the James Bond franchise allegedly want the next 007 to be under 40 and taller than 5 ft 10. This will allow the new James Bond to film at least three movies over the course of the next decade. If true, Idris Elba age 49, Henry Cavill, age 39 and Tom Hardy, age 44, wouldn't be cast as Bond. The height requirement would also rule out Star Wars star John Boyega and Game of Thrones star Kit Harington. Bridgerton star Rege Jean Page, age 34, would seem to be a favorite.
Baller Alert, citing Radar Online, claims Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian allegedly broke up after he proposed. A source is quoted by the news outlets as saying, “Everything was just moving too fast. Kim wanted to slow things down, and instead, Pete proposed. Kim is a great mom. She’s fully committed to her kids, and any man she meets needs to know that. Pete understood and was fine sharing Kim with her children, but he also wanted to get married yesterday.''
LAD Bible says Kanye West is making fun of Pete Davidson because he and Kim Kardashian broke up. Kanye posted a fake New York Times newspaper with a headline that read: 'Skete Davidson dead at age 28'. Below that was another headline that read: "Kid Cudi meant to play funeral but fearful of bottle throwers"
A source tells the Daily Mail newspaper that Kim wants Kanye to remove his post. “Kim won’t stand for this. She is demanding that Kanye take the post down, but he won’t. She has been vigorously defending Pete. She’ll never get back together with Kanye over the way he’s treated the people she loves and respects. She has tried incredibly hard to have a good co-parenting situation for the children. She won’t stand for this type of behavior from him.”
Entertainment Tonight says Pete Davidson's desire to have children and get married may have caused Kim Kardashian to break up with him. A source tells the TV show, "They had tons of chemistry, and still do, but she kind of wants to be single and date. Kim still adores Pete and will always be friends with him. She still thinks he's the nicest and sweetest guy in the world and there's no drama or anything weird between them now. She felt like Pete was the extreme opposite of Kanye and it was good for her then. She initially thought it would be a fun fling, but then it got more serious when they were spending so much time together. Kim wasn't feeling like she was willing to settle down with him just yet. Pete and Kim broke up. The distance has been hard and things were starting to fizzle out. Pete being away for so long was hard for them. Kim is doing well and she knows she has a lot going on. Pete has been super busy as well."
A source tells the NY Post, “Pete knew it wasn’t going to work. He’d been saying it for a while, and Kim knew it too. The distance was a big thing, and next month Pete starts shooting his new show in NYC and he’s going to be busy with that.”
People magazine says Pete Davidson is in therapy because of Kanye West's constant online harassment. A source tells the magazine, "The attention and negativity coming from Kanye and his antics is a trigger for Pete, and he's had to seek out help. He has no regrets for dating Kim and wants it to be made very clear that she's been nothing but supportive of him throughout their relationship. Moving forward he just wants to focus on his career.''
Prince Harry tells the Mad World podcast that boxing saved his life. "Everyone was saying boxing is good for you and it's a really good way of letting out aggression.

Contact Music, citing Variety magazine, says Brad Pitt has a 'black book' of actors he won't work with again.

Whoopi Goldberg's granddaughter, Amara Sky Dean, was on the ABC reality TV show "Claim to Fame" last night. She revealed that Whoopi, the late Robin Williams, and Billy Crystal once had a tooting competition in an elevator. "My favorite story that my grandma has told me about her, Robin Williams, and Billy Crystal standing in an elevator, and Robin Williams was just farting his life away,” she explained. “I guess they were Dutch Oven-ing each other, just basking in the ambiance of farts. And my grandma got her name because she likes to fart a lot, so … whoopie cushion, farts. And that’s how Caryn Johnson became Whoopi Goldberg.”
