Christina Aguilera Crushes Carpool Karaoke While Melissa McCarthy Surprises with Her Rap Skills

gerald April 23, 2018

Christina Aguilera is on fire in Carpool Karaoke.

The pop diva, 37, brought her A-game during her first appearance on The Late, Late Show with James Corden‘s Carpool Karaoke segment on Monday night.

She belted out such hits like “Fighter,” “Dirrty,” and “Genie in a Bottle” alongside host James Corden, who seemed in awe of her vocal talent.

“How are you doing that with your voice?” Corden, 39, asked Aguilera after she had growled during a verse in “Fighter.”

“That’s an angsty thing, you’ve got to get your fighter on,” she explained, to which Corden responded he couldn’t copy her as he sounded “like I’ve got something trapped in my throat.”

The pair also spoke about Aguilera’s days on The Mickey Mouse Club, which she appeared in her youth alongside Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Ryan Gosling.

“Could you find yourself getting lost in Ryan Gosling’s eyes?” Corden asked her.

“I think there were crushes but I… I wasn’t on the train,” she said.

“Were you on the Timberlake train?” Corden asked, which caused Aguilera to appear flustered.

“Um, I think, there was like a… me and Britney… well now you know there was a thing back then.. it was a good time,” she said, struggling with her answer.

“He had swag. Back then he had swag,” she concluded. “But I know Ryan did have a crush on Britney. I think so.”

“She must be regretting that,” Corden said.

When the duo moved on to singing Aguilera’s 2002 single Dirrty, they surprised their audience with Melissa McCarthy, who gave a fierce rendition of Redman’s rap verse.

“You two know each other. You’ve known each other a while, yes?” Corden asked the two.

“We’ve known each other a while,” McCarthy said, nodding. “We did a picture together — Life of the Party.”

“Which we obviously are,” Aguilera added.

Amber Portwood Breaks Down During Teen Mom OG Reunion: ‘I Can’t Keep Defending Myself as a Mom’

gerald

Amber Portwood broke down in tears during Monday night’s Teen Mom OG reunion when she confronted ex Gary Shirley about his comments on her parenting.

The mother of one, who is expecting her second child with boyfriend Andrew Glennon, appeared via a video chat during the reunion, telling Shirley, his wife Kristina, and Dr. Drew that she felt she had been unfairly judged during the season due to her depression stemming from her breakup with ex-fiancé Matt Baier.

“I’m really hurt because the last thing I want is… like… the last thing I want is for people to look at me like that person because it’s not me,” Portwood said, referring to Shirley’s claims that she had been absent from their daughter Leah’s life following her breakup.

“It’s to the point where feel horrible about being depressed and stuff,” she continued. “I don’t know what anybody wants me to do anymore. I’m trying as hard as I can and as long as Leah knows that I love her with all my heart.”

“Even if I’m not a perfect mom — just so she knows I am here for her, that’s all that matters to me. I can’t keep defending myself as a mom, anymore. I don’t know what to do,” she added, sobbing into a cloth.

Shirley attempted to alleviate her emotions, saying, “Our issues what little they were, were a long time ago. I do not, and I will not keep Leah from you, ever.”

In January, Portwood slammed Shirley and Kristina for comments they made about her and her relationship with Glennon.

“She should have waited,” Shirley said, referring to Portwood’s relationship with Glennon after breaking up with ex-fiancé Baier in mid-2017. “She should have taken more time with Leah, and focused on her responsibility as a mother.”

“I know you’re sad from breaking up with somebody, I get it,” he continued. “From day one, I’ve been a parent, from day one I’ve never let my issues stop me from being a dad,” Shirley said. “I don’t have the option to not be a parent.”

Portwood responded to his comments on Twitter Monday, writing, “Make sure to watch Gary and Kristina tonight talking s— about me! It must be hard making money off of me! Being such a bad mom and all. Where would they be? Wait..in a 1 bedroom shack in the ghetto of Anderson where he was before I got out and the show came back on!! Ignorant!”

Scarlett Johansson & Colin Jost Make Their Red Carpet Debut at the Avengers: Infinity War Premiere

gerald

Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost look more in love than ever!

The couple walked their very first red carpet together for the premiere of Johansson’s upcoming film, Avengers: Infinity War, on Monday night in Los Angeles, California.

While the two have kept their romance under wraps since they first sparked dating rumors in May 2017, they couldn’t help but look happy in each others’ presence as they smiled at each other and held hands.

Johansson walked alongside the Saturday Night Live actor in an embroidered metallic dress with a black belt while Jost wore a black tux.

Before the big event, the actress, 33, also made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where the host Ellen DeGeneres jokingly set out to tear the couple apart by sharing shocking throwback photo of Jost with a full-grown beard.

“He’s adorable, he’s funny. I’m happy for you,” DeGeneres said during the episode airing on Tuesday, “There’s a picture that John Mulaney, who was fantastic hosting Saturday Night Live, he posted a picture, a throwback of Colin with a beard.”

Want to keep up on the latest from PEOPLE? Sign up for our daily newsletter to get our best stories of the day delivered straight to your inbox.

She continued, “I thought this was a disguise but that’s really what he looked like. Had you seen that?”

Johansson, 33, looked wide-eyed at the photo before saying, “I mean I can’t unsee it now. Oh my god, it is. Wow.”

“Have I just broke y’all up? Did I do something wrong?” DeGeneres asked.

Johansson continued to look shocked, saying, “I can’t say that that’s an image that I’ll ever forget.”

As for whether the Avengers: Infinity War actress liked to watch SNL, Johansson joked it was “hard to pick” who she liked best on the Weekend Update segment of the show.

“No, it’s not that hard to pick,” the actress said. “I guess I’m a Colin fan, I have to say.”

The couple made their first public appearance in November at the American Museum of Natural History Gala in New York City but skipped the red carpet that time. They’ve kept their romance private and away from most prying eyes despite having become romantically linked in May 2017, when the actress made a special guest appearance on the comedy program’s 2017 finale.

Aside from making jokes about her love life, DeGeneres also broached the subject of a standalone Black Widow film with Johansson and the actress said she believes “there’s room for it.”

“I think the only way to do it is if it were something that we’ve never seen before,” Johansson said. “Something groundbreaking and incredibly badass. But, you know, I think if anybody could make it happen, my boss, Kevin Feige could. I think it could be something really special. There’s definitely a lot of room there.”

Stan Lee Accused of Sexual Misconduct by a Massage Therapist

gerald

Stan Lee, the 95-year-old father of Marvel Comics’ most beloved superheroes like Spider-Man and the Hulk, is being accused of sexual misconduct by a massage therapist who says the comic book icon acted inappropriately with her during two separate sessions.

Maria Carballo claims she was sent to Lee’s room at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Chicago to perform a 2-hour massage on the morning of April 21, 2017, according to a complaint filed Monday in Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois. The massage was scheduled by Lee’s assistant, who is also named as a defendant in the complaint.

A rep for Lee did not return PEOPLE’s request for comment.

After she massaged Lee’s back for around half an hour, Carballo claims in the complaint that the comic book creator “began to fondle himself.” Carballo, the complaint states, instructed Lee to roll onto his back “in an attempt to diffuse the situation.”

When Lee turned over, Carballo says in the complaint that she “noticed that the sheets on which had been lying were wet.” She decided to disregard “her observation” and give “ the benefit of the doubt.”

The massage continued unabated for a short time until Carballo began massaging Lee’s quadriceps, at which point “Lee began to moan and groan,” according to the complaint. Observing this, Carballo says she ended the massage and left to wash her hands.

When she returned, Carballo states in her complaint that Lee “remained on the table, complaining that the massage was supposed to last two-hours.”

After conferring with Lee’s assistant, Carballo agreed to only charge for an hour session and left the room after receiving payment, the complaint states.

However, the next day, the owner of Carballo’s massage company called her three separate times asking that she return to massage Lee, according to the complaint. Carballo says she told her boss that Lee made her uncomfortable and asked that the company use another therapist. But after stressing the importance of “appeasing VIP clients” and “relaying an apology from Lee,” who assured her that there would be no further incidents, Carballo “reluctantly” consented to return “fearing that her continued refusal would cause her to lose her job,” according to the complaint.

On her way back to the room on April 22, Carballo says four security guards, the Hyatt concierge and another member of Lee’s team greeted her in the lobby, escorted her to Lee’s room and apologized on his behalf for his prior behavior, the complaint states.

But about an hour into the massage, Carballo says in the complaint that “Lee was once again moaning.” Carballo says she “immediately stopped the massage and asked Lee to put his clothes on so that she could get her belongings and go home.”

At this point, Carballo says in the complaint, “Lee stood up from the massage table, completely naked and became angry” with Carballo. She says she then “begged” him to get dressed and “let her leave,” but Lee “became and angrier and demanded” the massage continue, according to the complaint.

RELATED: Stan Lee Reveals Battle with Pneumonia at the Age of 95

“In an effort to appease Lee and in fear of retribution from her employer, agreed to continue the massage for another 10 minutes,” the complaint states. Carballo attempted to create “more distance between ” by giving him a Shiatsu massage, which can be performed by the therapists feet instead of hands, thus “giving more protection in case Lee acted inappropriately again,” the complaint states.

However, after “a few minutes,” the complaint says, “Lee grabbed foot and moved it against his penis and scrotum.”

After freeing “herself from his grip, she promptly gathered her belongings,” asked to be paid, received $240 for the massage and left the room, according to the complaint. While waiting for the elevator to the lobby, Lee’s assistant thanked her for returning to the hotel, according to the complaint, which adds that Lee’s assistant handed her “a wad of money as a tip.”

Carballo says in the complaint that she “took the money and went home.” She did not report the incident to police in fear that, “in light of Lee’s wealth and status” making a police report “would hurt her job,” according to the complaint.

She also claims that Lee’s assistant knew of his “inappropriate behavior.”

The massage therapist added the #MeToo movement inspired her “to fight for her dignity by standing up for herself.”

Citing assault, battery and other counts, Carballo is seeking a judgment “in excess of $50,000, plus an award of punitive damages, and attorneys’ fees and costs as permitted under the statute.”

Meanwhile, controversy has recently swirled around Lee, who sued a former business manager alleging fraud and has spoken out defending his daughter after others around him claimed she was trying to gain control of his assets.

Allison Mack Reached Out to Emma Watson on Twitter to Tell Her About Alleged Sex Group

gerald

Allison Mack did her best to tell Emma Watson and Kelly Clarkson all about her controversial self-help group Nxivm.

In tweets written to the Harry Potter actress in 2016 and unearthed by Business Insider, Mack reached out to Watson, 28, about an “amazing women’s movement” she wanted to speak to the actress about, although she never mentioned Nxivm by name in her tweets.

“.@EmWatson I’m a fellow actress like yourself & involved in an amazing women’s movement I think you’d dig. I’d love to chat if you’re open,” Mack, 35, tweeted.

One month later, in February 2016, Mack tweeted at Watson again, writing, “.@EmWatson I participate in a unique human development & women’s movement I’d love to tell you about. As a fellow actress I can relate so well to your vision and what you want to see in the world. I think we could work together. Let me know if you’re willing to chat.”

Despite appearing to not hear anything from Watson, Mack tweeted at her again in March.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

@TheCathyJensen @EmWatson Thank you for the bump up! Would love to chat with a fellow change-maker! #InternationalWomensDay,” she wrote.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Watson was not the only artist she reached out to. Mack also tweeted at Kelly Clarkson in July 2013.

@kelly_clarkson I heard through the grapevine that you’re a fan of Smallville. I’m a fan of yours as well! I’d love to chat sometime,” Mack tweeted.

The Smallville actress was arrested Friday morning and charged with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor in conspiracy in connection with Nxivm, which one former member has described as a “cult.”

Mack — best known for her years-long role as Chloe Sullivan on The WB’s Smallville — faces a minimum sentence of 15 years in prison if convicted on all of her charges.

According to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of New York, Mack was allegedly “one of the women in the first level of the pyramid immediately below Raniere.”

As such, she allegedly had “slaves” underneath her, according to the statement, which claims Mack “directly or implicitly required” two women “to engage in sexual activity with Raniere.”

RELATED: Smallville‘s Allison Mack Allegedly Forced ‘Slaves’ Into Sex Acts After Luring Women Into Controversial Group

“In exchange, for this, Mack received financial and other benefits from Raniere,” the statement alleges.

She was set to be arraigned in federal court in New York City later Friday, according to the statement. During her appearance there, she pleaded not guilty, according to the New York Post.

Jennifer Pastiloff, a writer and yoga instructor, told PEOPLE the actress followed her on Twitter in 2014, which was followed by email exchanges with Mack.

“She seemed really sweet,” Pastiloff told PEOPLE exclusively.

But that impression soon changed when Mack began writing her about “intensive workshops,” which the actress described as “the most profound and awesome thing I have ever done.”

Pastiloff says that at that point, she became wary.

“My radar went off when she wrote that these workshops would help me ‘close some gaps you may be finding,’” Pastiloff said, sharing a May 30, 2014, email purportedly from Mack. “I remember thinking there was something weird about this, something sketchy.”

“To me, what she was talking about sounded like a cult,” Pastiloff said. “It was bizarre. I thought that’s probably how they get them in, with these workshops. Would you have gone after that email? I had zero desire to ever go to this thing, ever. I think I didn’t really want to connect with her because if we had, I might have gone to one of these workshops and then who knows?”

Ed Westwick’s Girlfriend Says NY ‘Just Ain’t the Same’ Without Him Amid Sexual Assault Allegations

gerald

Ed Westwick has seemingly been without his girlfriend while keeping out of the spotlight after it was confirmed that sexual assault allegations against him are being reviewed by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

Jessica Serfaty, a 26-year-old model, shared a new photo of the couple kissing at a restaurant on Instagram Sunday with the caption, “New York just ain’t the same without.”

In the snap, the model wears a gold band on her left ring finger, namely a Cartier “Love” ring.

The speculation about an engagement comes five months after a source told PEOPLE in November 2017 that Westwick was planning on proposing to Serfaty weeks before he was accused of sexually assaulting two actresses. (Serfaty, who has a 9-year-old son from a previous marriage, previously wore the same ring on that hand in social media posts shared in January, February and March.)

A rep for Westwick did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment. Westwick has previously denied the assault accusations.

Westwick, 30, and Serfaty were last spotted in Los Angeles together back in January amid the continued fallout as the Gossip Girl alum faces allegations of sexual assault.

In total, three women have accused the British actor of raping or sexually assaulting them in 2014.

Prosecutor spokesman Greg Risling told PEOPLE in March that their office was presented with a case by L.A. police on March 20 and “it is under review.” Under standard procedure, police investigate accusations of crimes and then turn over their findings to the district attorney, who determines whether to bring charges.

However, it is unclear which of those alleged assaults is being reviewed by the L.A. district attorney.

The claims against Westwick first came to light in November after actress Kristina Cohen filed a police report accusing him of rape in 2014. Soon after Cohen went public, former actress Aurélie Wynn accused Westwick on social media of raping her in July 2014 while she was visiting his home.

Then, within days of that allegation, a third woman, creative producer Rachel Eck, said in an interview with Buzzfeed that Westwick had allegedly “aggressively groped” her breasts at a Hollywood hotel in 2014.

In a since-deleted message posted on social media, Westwick dismissed the first two accusations.

“It is disheartening and sad to me that as a result of two unverified and provably untrue social media claims, there are some in this environment who could ever conclude I have had anything to do with such vile and horrific conduct,” he wrote on Instagram and Twitter. “I have absolutely not, and I am cooperating with the authorities so that they can clear my name as soon as possible.”

Westwick has not yet responded to the third allegation.

Kym Johnson and Robert Herjavec are quick-stepping into parenthood!

The couple welcomed twins on Monday, she announced in an Instagram photo that showed Herjavec carrying them both in his arms.

“I never thought my heart could feel so full. We’re so in love with our little angels. Born at 7.44am and 7.45am 4/23/18,” the Dancing with the Stars pro, 41, wrote in the caption.

The couple did not reveal their “little angels” names.

Adding, “I don’t know how we’re going to juggle the two, but just going to go with the flow of it,” Johnson added. “I’ve been reading all these books but they make you crazy a little. I’m trying to be prepared, but I think you just have to wait and see.”

After three years with Herjavec, the dancer and BOD founder was excited to learn she would be a parent after doing the in vitro fertilization process.

“I’ve always wanted to be a mom and I wasn’t sure it was going to happen. It really is a miracle,” she told PEOPLE just weeks before her birth.

Adding, “It’s such an amazing blessing.”

John Cena Hits The Gym for 41st Birthday — and So Does Ex Nikki Bella

gerald

John Cena and Nikki Bella agree on one thing: the gym is a great way to let off some steam.

The WWE wrestler turned 41 on Monday and celebrated with a workout, lifting weights at the gym.

Cena tweeted a video of himself, writing, “41 years old. 160kg. NEVER let age define effort. #EarnTheDay #NeverGiveUp #RAW.”

While he and ex Nikki, 34, may have separated following the end of their engagement, it seems they both still think alike as the Total Bellas star shared a photo of herself at the gym with her sister, Brie Bella, on Monday.

“Got insane butt kickings today by Mark Shane! @shapeupstudio2018,” Bella wrote in the caption as she and her sister posed for a mirror selfie.

Nikki and Cena called off their wedding earlier this month, a year after he proposed during WrestleMania 33. The two —despite their differing stances on marriage and having kids — were scheduled to marry on May 5.

An insider previously told PEOPLE that Nikki was the one who pulled the plug on their wedding, for which Brie would’ve been matron of honor.

“John acted more and more like he was doing her a favor by somehow conceding to go ahead and marry her,” the insider said. “ doesn’t need a pity proposal, a pity wedding, a pity husband. She’s a phenomenal, tremendous woman.”

On Saturday, Nikki was spotted without her massive 4.5-carat diamond engagement ring.

The WWE star made her first public appearance at the Nirvana Food and Wine Festival in Arizona when she and her twin sister hosted a rosé tasting party in partnership with their wine line, Belle Radici.

“She’s good, they call her fearless Nikki for a reason,” Brie told PEOPLE. “She always puts on that brave face. My sister has more strength than any other woman I know, especially Wonder Woman. She’s bigger than that.”

Brie also shared that fans and viewers will see what went wrong in her sister and Cena’s relationship in the upcoming season of E!’s Total Bellas.

“I really had to take a step back and allow it and that was really hard on me because it’s my twin. I want to protect her from everything,” the mother of one said. “This has been the hardest season to film for me because all I want to do is protect her and keep everyone away, but this is what we do.”

“John and Nicole allow the fans to see some very personal conversations, that to be honest, I was mind blown about. Bryan and I both said, ‘I don’t think we’d allow them to see those conversations’ but they do. I give them a lot of credit. You get to see where they’re at today and see that unravel,” Brie added.

Is There Still a Chance For Another New SATC Movie? Sarah Jessica Parker Isn’t Ruling It Out

gerald

Sarah Jessica Parker is weighing in on the possibilities of a forthcoming third Sex and the City movie — despite costar Kim Cattrall openly refusing to have any part of it. 

“I’ve always held Kim’s work in high regard and always appreciative of her contributions. If she chooses not to do the third movie, there’s not a lot I can do to change her mind and we must respect it,” Parker said in a new interview with Vulture, when asked about the prospect of a SATC reunion with Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones on the popular series and film franchise.

She added, speaking of co-stars Cynthia Nixon and Kristen Davis, “The three of us have shared our disappointment that we’re not making that movie, not just on our behalf but our crew, but also just the people that have been vocal about wanting to see it.”

Still, not all hope is lost. Parker revealed that another installment of SATC has not been completely ruled out.

“Whether we choose to revisit it at another time and reimagine that story — that’s something Michael and I just haven’t talked about yet, that doesn’t mean we won’t, but we haven’t at this time,” Parker said. 

Parker, who portrayed Carrie Bradshaw in the HBO hit, said she does not harbor any ill will towards Cattrall.

“I’d just like to remind everybody that there is no catfight. I have never uttered an unkind, unsupportive, unfriendly word so I would love to redefine it,” Parker said of her former costar.

“I also want to remind everybody that there were four women on the set and I spent equal time with all of them, so this was not a set with two women who didn’t get along,” she added referring to her other costars, Davis, who played Charlotte York, and Nixon, who played Miranda Hobbes.

“I’ve never fought with someone publicly in my life, nor would I. And I spent time with all of the women on the set. People need to recall that it wasn’t just two women on the set fighting because that just never happened,” continued the Divorce actress.

“We are enormously proud of what we got to do and I don’t want someone sharing thoughts publicly, which is Kim’s right to do and that is what it is, but we spent 10, 12 years of our life doing something that I really loved and I feel privileged to be part of and I don’t want this to eclipse it or change its experience for that audience that was so good to us for so long,” she concluded.

In a January 2017 interview with PEOPLE, Cattrall played coy on the possibility of another SATC film, saying she wasn’t sure what the next story would be, or if they’d be able to get the cast back together again eight years after filming the second movie.

However, she did offer a glimmer of hope when she said she missed making people laugh, just as she did in SATC. “Are we still relevant? That would be the reason to come back,” she said. “I really miss making people laugh, I so enjoy that.”

Queen Elizabeth, 92, Enjoys a Morning Horseback Ride After the Arrival of Her Great-Grandson

gerald

Queen Elizabeth celebrated the latest addition to her family with a quick horseback ride through the grounds of Windsor Castle.

The monarch, 92, was photographed enjoying her ride in Berkshire, west of London, after her grandson Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, welcomed their third child together — a son — Monday morning.

Her Majesty was joined by the palace’s head groom, Terry Pendry.

The arrival of the youngest member of the family comes just two days after the Queen’s birthday which was celebrated with a televised concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

While proud parents William and Kate have yet to reveal their son’s name, they did look overjoyed at their new baby while presenting him to a crowd of cheering fans outside of the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital.

“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 1101hrs,” a statement by Kensington Palace said. “The baby weighs 8lbs 7oz. The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth.”

“The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry and members of both families have been informed and are delighted with the news,” the statement continued. “Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.”

Big brother Prince George, 4, was at school when his little brother was born and big sister Princess Charlotte, who turns 3 in May, was at home at Kensington Palace.

The name of the baby boy will be announced in due course, the palace said. Albert and Arthur are tied as the most popular names for a boy – at 5-1 and 9-1, respectively, according to British oddsmakers.

While William, 35, and Kate, 36, didn’t answer questions from the media after debuting their newborn son, the proud dad of three told onlookers that they were “very happy, delighted” about their new addition as he secured his son into his car seat.

Holding up three fingers, William smiled and said, “Thrice worry now.”

“We didn’t keep you waiting too long,” he joked about their quick hospital stay.

For the first time in history, a female royal’s spot in line to the throne won’t be bumped by the arrival of a younger brother. Thanks to the Succession to the Crown Act 2013, birth order determines who will become the next king or queen of the U.K., regardless of gender. Had it not been in place, Charlotte would have lost her spot when Kate gave birth to a boy.

The royal baby remains fifth in line of succession after Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

With his arrival, Prince Harry is now sixth in line, and Prince Andrew, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie will all move down a place in the line of succession with the arrival of William and Kate’s younger son.

Late Sunday, the singer revealed why she had deleted some of her previous tweets, writing, “I retracted my queer tweet because I am being corrected about that way in which i listed the gender spectrum and I’m super super sensitive to being offensive especially when I’m only trying to appreciate. Point is, I love love, and that love lies in every gender there is.”

However, on Monday she clarified she identifies as queer but in retrospect realized other parts of her tweet were not appropriate.

“(repetitive so it’s suuuper clear) my identifying as queer wasn’t the issue, it was the singling out of trans & intersex which sounded transphobic, ignorant and to some, sounding like festishization. which is completely wrong, not my intention, and something to say sorry about,” she wrote.

The “Honey” singer shared also shared a kiss with Lovato, 25, onstage during the last U.S. leg of her “Tell Me You Love Me” tour earlier this month.

Lovato was performing at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey when the moment happened. Singing her 2017 track “Lonely” while rolling around in a white bodysuit and matching silk robe on a bed at the center of the stage, Lovato was surrounded by a handful of shirtless male dancers.

Kehlani then snuck up behind Lovato and stole a kiss. Getting flirty, Lovato climbed on top of her tour mate, rolling her hips seductively to the cheers of the audience.

The “Confident” singer admitted in an interview with BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw that she wasn’t expecting the liplock.

“She came up behind me. I had no idea!” Lovato said. “She told me she was going to be watching the show, so I was looking for her, and I didn’t see her out there so I was like, ‘OK, I guess she decided to go or whatever.’ And then all the sudden I feel hands on my shoulders for this song ‘Lonely.’ I look up and it’s her.”

Kehlani previously dated Boston Celtics player Kyrie Irving. In March 2016, the singer shared a now-deleted Instagram post in which she revealed she had been hospitalized following a suicide attempt.

“Today I wanted to leave this earth,” she captioned a photo of an IV in her arm as she rested in a hospital bed. “ being completely selfish for once.”

“Never thought I’d get to such a low point,” Kehlani penned. “But.. Don’t believe the blogs you read .. No one was cheated on and I’m not a bad person… Everyone is hurt and everyone is in a place of misunderstanding.”

Miley Cyrus fell for another prank by her fiancé Liam Hemsworth.

Over the weekend, the singer, 25, shared a selfie video of herself on Instagram Story while in the passenger seat and Hemsworth, 28, driving as the couple danced to 21 Savage’s 2017 single, “Bank Account.”

Cyrus appeared to be focused on the camera and filming the moment as the actor abruptly caught her off guard by yelling, “Oh s—!,” and pretending to lose control of their car.

“I f—ing hate when he does this s—,” the former Voice judge captioned the video.

Queer Eye’s Antoni Porowski on His ‘Fluid’ Sexuality: ‘I’ve Never Really Had a Label for Myself’

gerald

Queer Eye‘s food and wine specialist Antoni Porowski is opening up about his personal life, including his sexuality and close relationships with his fellow cast members.

“Some people want to define themselves, and they should as it’s part of their identity,” says the May cover star of Gay Times. “For me personally, I’ve never really had a label for myself. Today I’m gay, I’m in a gay relationship, and that’s where I am. That’s good enough for me.”

Porowski, who’s currently dating photographer Joey Krietemeyer, says he’s always considered himself a “little more fluid along the spectrum.”

“So even being called bisexual… I remember in my early twenties I was like, ‘But bisexual means I can only like girls and guys, what if I like something else?’” he says. “Maybe it’s just my rebellious nature. I’m me, I’m Antoni, and I’m all these things.”

The Canadian native also revealed how hesitant he was about saying the popular Netflix show’s title before it aired.

“I would embarrassingly catch myself whispering ‘queer’ as though… I don’t know if I was embarrassed or I had some kind of shame, but it still felt taboo from childhood,” Porowski says.

Now the 34-year-old is more confident than ever, thanks to the show and one of his close friends and co-stars, Jonathan Van Ness.

“Hanging out with Jonathan after three or four months, it’s like, yeah, we’re gonna hold hands when we’re out having lunch,” Porowski says. “For us it’s just natural. It would be weird if we didn’t.”

“Jonathan is so comfortable with himself that he just is who he is,” Porowksi added.

“That’s helped me open up into the person I actually think I was meant to be. I’ve also changed into a better version of myself. A more honest and true version of myself, thanks to Jonathan.”

Verne Troyer’s Death ‘Possible Suicide’: ‘Very High Level of Alcohol in His System,’ Says Coroner

gerald April 22, 2018

Verne Troyer had a “very high” amount of alcohol in his system at the time of his death, the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office tells PEOPLE.

“He was admitted with a very high level of alcohol in his system,” says coroner spokesperson Ed Winter, who notes that the case was “reported as a possible suicide.”

Toxicology tests have been performed and the final results could take 4-6 weeks Winter explains, saying, “His case is deferred at this time pending additional tests.”

Troyer, best known for playing Mini-Me in the Austin Powers franchise, died Saturday at the age of 49.

“It is with great sadness and incredibly heavy hearts to write that Verne passed away today. Verne was an extremely caring individual. He wanted to make everyone smile, be happy, and laugh. Anybody in need, he would help to any extent possible,” his family confirmed in a statement shared on Instagram and Facebook Saturday.

No cause of death was revealed at the time.

A rep for Troyer did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

“Verne hoped he made a positive change with the platform he had and worked towards spreading that message everyday. He inspired people around the world with his drive, determination, and attitude. On film & television sets, commercial shoots, at comic-con’s & personal appearances, to his own YouTube videos, he was there to show everyone what he was capable of doing,” the statement continued.

“Even though his stature was small and his parents often wondered if he’d be able to reach up and open doors on his own in his life, he went on to open more doors for himself and others than anyone could have imagined. He also touched more peoples hearts than he will ever know. Verne was also a fighter when it came to his own battles. Over the years he’s struggled and won, struggled and won, struggled and fought some more, but unfortunately this time was too much.”

On April 2, Troyer, who was born with achondroplasia dwarfism which caused him to stop growing at 2’8″, was rushed to the hospital for a “reported poisoning.” The Los Angeles City Fire Department confirmed to PEOPLE that they were called to the actor’s North Hollywood home. Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Troyer was “extremely upset, drunk and suicidal.”

Troyer’s big acting break came in 1999 with the role of Mini-Me in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, for which he portrayed a misbehaving version of Mike Myers’ character Dr. Evil. Troyer also reprised his role in the 2002 sequel, Austin Powers in Goldmember.

Other acting credits include roles in Men in BlackHarry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. He also starred in VH1’s The Surreal Life in 2005.

In lieu of flowers, the family asked for donations to be made to two charities, The Starkey Hearing Foundation and Best Buddies, in Troyer’s name.

If you or someone you know is considering suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

George H. W. Bush Hospitalized Less Than 24 Hours After Laying His Beloved Barbara to Rest

gerald

Less than one day after burying his wife, former president George H. W. Bush is in intensive care.

His spokesman Jim McGrath said in a statement obtained by PEOPLE on Monday that Bush, 93, “was admitted to the Houston Methodist Hospital yesterday morning after contracting an infection that spread to his blood.”

“He is responding to treatments and appears to be recovering. We will issue additional updated as events warrant.”

The news comes just two days after former first lady Barbara Bush’s funeral on Saturday.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

She was laid to rest by her large and loving family on Saturday on the grounds of the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas.

It was an emotional day as Mrs. Bush’s husband of 73 years and her children, former President George W., Jeb, Dorothy, Neil and Marvin, said their final farewells at a funeral service for the family matriarch, who died at 92 last week.

Mrs. Bush also leaves behind her brother, Scott Pierce, 17 grandchildren — including George W. and Laura Bush’s twin daughters, Jenna and Barbara, who also attended the funeral along with their mother — and seven great-grandchildren.

“To honor his wife of 73 years and her commitment to family literacy, for which she raised over $110 million over the course of over 30 years, @GeorgeHWBush will be wearing a pair of socks festooned with books at today’s funeral service for former First Lady Barbara Bush,” according to Bush family spokesperson Jim McGrath, who tweeted the detail before the funeral.

Her service was held at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Houston, Texas, and was attended by thousands of mourners who paid their respects to the Bush family patriarch. The service was attended by former presidents and first ladies Barack and Michelle Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, as well as First Lady Melania Trump.

President Donald Trump did not attend, but sent his condolences last week in a statement, calling the matriarch of the political dynasty a “wonderful, wonderful person” and “a titan in American life.”

Before the funeral, Mrs. Bush’s body lay in repose on Friday at the church for members of the public who wanted to pay their respects.

The Office of George H. W. Bush confirmed Mrs. Bush’s death on Tuesday, saying in a statement, “A former First Lady of the United States of America and relentless proponent of family literacy, Barbara Pierce Bush passed away Tuesday, April 17, 2018, at the age of 92.”

The former president’s longtime chief of staff, Jean Becker, said he is “broken-hearted” over the loss of his wife of 73 years.

“So many of you are asking, ‘How is 41?’ He, of course, is broken-hearted to lose his beloved Barbara, his wife of 73 years,” Becker wrote in a statement on Tuesday night. “He held her hand all day today and was at her side when left this good earth.”

The statement continued, “Obviously, this is a very challenging time. But it will not surprise all of you who know and love him, that he also is being stoic and strong, and is being lifted up by his large and supportive family. He is determined to be there for them as well. He appreciates all the well wishes and support.”

Murder Suspect Controversially Claims Morgan Freeman’s Step-Granddaughter Had Sex With the Actor

gerald

An attorney for the man who allegedly murdered Morgan Freeman’s step-granddaughter E’Dena Hines reportedly claimed in court last week that she told him she and Freeman had an “inappropriate” sexual relationship — an accusation both Freeman and Hines previously dismissed.

On Friday, Lamar Davenport’s lawyer Beth Unger alleged that before Hines’ slaying in New York City in 2015, Hines “disclosed to … Davenport and others that her grandfather engaged in sexually inappropriate relationship with her,” the New York Daily News and the New York Post report.

Unsubstantiated rumors of sex between the 80-year-old Oscar winner and Hines, 33, have circulated in the tabloids for several years but were strongly denied by both of them.

The allegation by Davenport’s defense on Friday appears to be the first time the contested claim has been made outside of the gossip press. Davenport’s attorney did not elaborate or further allege when this relationship occurred.

Davenport is charged with second-degree murder after authorities say he stabbed Hines more than a dozen times outside their Washington Heights apartment on Aug. 16, 2015. She was found lying in the street outside her home at 3 a.m. and was taken to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Text messages shared on Friday during the trial showed Davenport and Hines talked about taking a break before Hines’ death, according to the Daily News. Prosecutors reportedly believe their relationship was rocky before the stabbing.

“Lamar admitted to me that they had a violent relationship,” a defense witness testified, according to the Post. “ disagreements could be emotionally intense.”

Hines’ grandmother is Freeman’s first wife, and Hines’ mother was Freeman’s stepdaughter until he adopted her. Hines attended a graduate acting program at New York University from 2008 to 2011 and starred in Landing Up, which premiered in 2017.

While prosecutors argue the killing was intentional, Davenport’s defense claims both he and Hines were high at the time and that Davenport was in a drug-induced psychosis and not responsible for his actions.

A defense expert testified on Friday that Davenport “lacked substantial capacity to appreciate the wrongfulness of his actions and know the nature and consequences of his conduct,” according to the Daily News.

Neighbors previously told PEOPLE the sounds of Hines being killed woke people in nearby buildings, with one neighbor claiming that Hines could be heard “screaming and the name ‘Lamar.’ “

Davenport’s lawyers could not be reached for comment Monday. Prosecutors declined to comment.

In a statement to PEOPLE immediately after Hines was killed, Freeman reflected on her talent and how she touched the lives of those who knew her.

“The world will never know her artistry and talent, and how much she had to offer,” he said. “Her friends and family were fortunate enough to have known what she meant as a person. Her star will continue to shine bright in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. May she rest in peace.”

Prepare to get smothered with kisses today! We love ya, Daddy. Happy Birthday @JDMorgan !” wife Hilarie Burton tweeted, along with three adorable photos of Morgan with his kids.

Recently, the Walking Dead star revealed to PEOPLE that he takes his hands-on parenting seriously — to the point that he helped deliver both of his kids with Burton.

“We didn’t use doctors, we used a midwife , so I delivered both of my kids,” he said. “The first time I didn’t know, I was shocked that I was part of it. I thought I was going to hold the leg, tell her to hopefully breathe and I wasn’t ready when I took my position.”

Adding, “This time I was a little bit more prepared and got in and got her out immediately. As soon as her head breached I reached in there, grabbed her by the cheeks and got her out. Hilarie was over it, so it was awesome. I got to deliver both my kids, for real, it was cool.”

Morgan also revealed that he expects his daughter George to be a “wild child.”

“I don’t remember any bad years with Gus. With George, I think she could be our karma,” he joked. “Maybe that’s my superstition is that George is going to be the wild child. I hear that girls are so much different from boys and I can already tell with George that she’s a lot different than Gus was; she’s real stubborn. I think she’s going to be the one that tests all the limits.”

As for expanding his family with more kids, Morgan isn’t planning on delivering more in the future.

He opened up about his future and whether he had any plans to further expand his family on The Howard Stern Show. “You might have more kids?” Howard Stern, 64, asked Morgan. “Geez no. We’re tapping out. Oh, dude I’m 52. Oh geez. Two’s perfect: boy and a girl,” the father of two said.

Channing Tatum Having a ‘Hard’ Time with Jenna Dewan Split: It’s a ‘Big Adjustment’

gerald

Channing Tatum is having a tough time adjusting to his split with ex Jenna Dewan, sources say.

The breakup has “been hard for Channing,” a source close to the couple, both 37, tells PEOPLE. “He always had Jenna and their family to go home to, so having their separation be ‘official’ now has been a big adjustment for him.”

As for Dewan, a second source says, “Jenna has a super-packed schedule and a ton of girlfriends to lean on and spend time with. Her life isn’t really changing … if anything, she’s just busier.”

Both Dewan and Tatum have been spotted out and about without their wedding rings since jointly announcing their split on April 2. Days after news of their breakup was made public, Dewan went back to shooting her upcoming TV show Mixtape.

This past weekend, Tatum stepped out for the Honda Indy Grand Prix on Sunday, attending his first public event since he and Dewan announced their split. The 37-year-old actor attended the event in Birmingham, Alabama, where he served as the grand marshal and hung out with Bachelor star Arie Luyendyk Jr.

Meanwhile, Dewan has also slowly been returning to social media — and removed her married last name from her accounts (Tatum has yet to share anything new on social media).

Last week, she updated Instagram with her first post since her separation, writing, “Thank you guys for all your love. Love you right back.”

On Wednesday, Dewan posted her first YouTube video since the split — dancing to Henry Green’s song “Something” in a white dress on the beach. The video, titled A Little Dance, was “inspired by this cove, this song, and voila! Love love love xx,” Dewan wrote in the description.

Another source close to Dewan says, “Jenna is great. She seems very energetic and excited about her life. It was very difficult for her to announce the separation. She didn’t want it to happen for a long time.

In a statement to PEOPLE, Dewan and Tatum announced they were going their separate ways.

We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple,” the pair said, later sharing the same statement on their Twitter and Instagram pages. “There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision — just two best-friends realizing it’s time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible.”

Dewan and Tatum first met on the set of their 2006 movie Step Up and tied the knot in 2009. Both share daughter Everly, who will turn 5 in May.

A source close to the couple previously told PEOPLE the pair tried to make things work after “growing apart” over the past year.

“They really wanted to make their marriage work,” said the insider. “But neither of them are people who will stay in something that isn’t fully right.”

Last week, she updated Instagram with her first post since her separation, writing, “Thank you guys for all your love. Love you right back.”

On Wednesday, Dewan posted her first YouTube video since the split — dancing to Henry Green’s song “Something” in a white dress on the beach. The video, titled A Little Dance, was “inspired by this cove, this song, and voila! Love love love xx,” Dewan wrote in the description.

Another source close to Dewan says, “Jenna is great. She seems very energetic and excited about her life. It was very difficult for her to announce the separation. She didn’t want it to happen for a long time.

In a statement to PEOPLE, Dewan and Tatum announced they were going their separate ways.

We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple,” the pair said, later sharing the same statement on their Twitter and Instagram pages. “There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision — just two best-friends realizing it’s time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible.”
