Celebrity Scandals: Gossip Center http://www.gossipcenter.com/site/rss2 en Gossipcenter.com Copyright 2010 Celebrity-Gossip.net - All Rights Reserved Mon, 29 May 2017 11:16:46 -0400 Javier Bardem Says Johnny Depp is a 'Gentleman' http://www.gossipcenter.com/johnny-depp/javier-bardem-says-johnny-depp-gentleman-1273277 Javier Bardem thinks Johnny Depp is a "gentleman".

The 48-year-old actor stars alongside Johnny in 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales' and Javier has admitted that during their time together on set, he grew very fond of Johnny, whose divorce from actress Amber Heard in 2016 came amid claims of domestic abuse.

Javier said: "With Johnny you can tell there is a very sensitive person there, a man who cares about people.

"That hasn't changed. Then there is the world outside the film studio, and I won't comment on these things because I don't know anything about them. But the Johnny I know is a gentleman."

The Academy Award-winning star observed that Johnny is extremely funny, as well as being a brilliant actor.

He told GQ magazine: "An exemplary actor with a sense of comedic timing quite like no other. He's f***ing hilarious!"

Johnny and Amber admitted in a joint statement after they agreed a £7 million settlement in their divorce case that their relationship had been "volatile".

The former couple split in May 2016 after 15 months of marriage and the actress subsequently accused her estranged husband of being abusive towards her.

Johnny denied the allegations made against him, but he did acknowledge their relationship was intense.

In a joint statement, the celebrity duo said: "Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love. Neither party has made false accusations for financial gain. There was never any intent of physical or emotional harm. Amber wishes the best for Johnny in the future. Amber will be donating financial proceeds from the divorce to a charity."

Stephen Belafonte Reunited With His Daughter Madison http://www.gossipcenter.com/spice-girls/stephen-belafonte-reunited-his-daughter-madison-1273276 Stephen Belafonte was reunited with his daughter Madison under "strict supervision" on Sunday (04.30.17).

The 41-year-old film producer is currently in the midst of a divorce battle with Mel B, but was allowed to see his five-year-old daughter for four hours at The Ness Centre, a counselling facility in Los Angeles.

Mel has taken out a restraining order against her estranged husband amid claims he was abusive towards the pop star and forced her into threesomes with the family's former nanny Lorraine Gilles.

And last month, their divorce row with Stephen took another twist when Lorraine claimed she had a seven-year sexual relationship with the singer.

The German filed a defamation lawsuit against the former Spice Girl, hitting back at claims in the 'America's Got Talent' star's divorce documents that she and Mel's husband had been "pilfering money" from her, had an affair and terminated a pregnancy after conceiving Stephen's baby.

The former staff member - who is suing for defamation, libel, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress - said Mel has portrayed her as a "homewrecker, prostitute and extortionist" but "in actuality," the 'Wannabe' hitmaker "seduced" her as a "naive and curious 18-year-old foreign exchange student ... with alcohol, fame and casual sex."

Lorraine claims that Mel confided in her when she first came to the States from her native Germany and told her that she and her spouse had an open relationship.

The former nanny said the trio had a threesome shortly afterwards and claims she continued having sex with Mel for the next seven years.

In her legal documents, Lorraine also said: "At no point did Gilles and Belafonte engage in any sexual acts without Brown's knowledge or participation and at no point did Gilles and Belafonte represent to Brown that Gilles was pregnant with Belafonte's child."

Jimmy Kimmel Opens Up About His Son's Heart Operation http://www.gossipcenter.com/jimmy-kimmel/jimmy-kimmel-opens-about-his-sons-heart-operation-1761662 Jimmy Kimmel's newborn son's operation on his heart was "the longest three hours" of his life.

The 48-year-old American television presenter announced his wife, Molly McNearney, gave birth to their child William on April 21, but the tiny tot had to undergo an invasive procedure within a matter of hours after he was born because he had "two defects in his heart", which left the parents fearing the worse.

Speaking openly about his brood on Monday's (05.01.17) episode of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live', the show's host - who also has daughters Katie, 25, Jane, two, and 23-year-old son Kevin - said: "On Monday morning, Dr. Vaughn Starnes opened his chest and fixed one of the two defects in his heart. He went in there with a scalpel and did some kind of magic that I couldn't even begin to explain.

"He opened the valve, and the operation was a success. It was the longest three hours of my life."

During the programme Jimmy thanked the Children's Hospital Los Angeles and the medical experts for taking care of his child.

William has since left the hospital to settle in at home with his family, and the funnyman has revealed his child is doing "great" following the operation and is doing "all the things" babies should do, including peeing on his mother.

He continued: "He's doing great. He's eating. He's sleeping. He peed on his mother today while she was changing his diaper. He's doing all the things that he's supposed to do."

Despite the initial complications, Jimmy has admitted he loves fatherhood and has credited it as "the best".

He said: "This is the best."

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez Make Red Carpet Debut as Couple http://www.gossipcenter.com/jennifer-lopez/jennifer-lopez-and-alex-rodriguez-make-red-carpet-debut-couple-1761661 Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez made their red carpet debut as a couple at this year's Met Gala.

The smitten pair - who have been dating since the beginning of the year - looked every inch in love as they graced the red carpet at the glamorous event, held in New York City, on Monday (05.01.17) night.

The 'On the Floor' hitmaker may have had all eyes on her as she dazzled in her sheer blue floor-length Valentino gown, complete with an eye-catching train, but she made sure her "macho bello" was feeling the love as she cozied up to him and flashed a beaming smile.

Prior to arriving at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the 47-year-old singer took to her Instagram account as she made her way towards the event to share a selfie of herself and her beau from their car..

She wrote: Me and my macho bello...#MetGala2017 #Valentino (sic)."

While Jennifer had clearly made sure she had pulled out all the stops with her attire, Alex had equally put some thought into his ensemble as he walked the red carpet in a smart navy blue tuxedo.

Meanwhile, although they've only been dating a few months, it looks like their relationship is moving at the speed of light as the pair's friends have already started calling them "J-Rod."

However, the brunette beauty, who is nicknamed J-Lo, insists she and her retired baseball star boyfriend - who is known as A-Rod - don't mind the amalgamated name as they expected it.

She said: "It's fine. We kind of thought that would happen... because people who knew us were already [saying] it. So, you guys, it's not like you were original or anything."

The 'Shades of Blue' actress has nine-year-old twins Max and Emme with her ex-husband Marc Anthony, while 41-year-old Alex has Natasha, 12, and Ella, eight, from his marriage to Cynthia Scurtis.

Kylie Jenner Takes Celeb-Filled Selfie at the Met Gala http://www.gossipcenter.com/kylie-jenner/kylie-jenner-takes-celeb-filled-selfie-met-gala-1761660 Kylie Jenner broke the Met Gala's social media ban to post a celebrity-filled selfie at the annual fundraiser.

The 19-year-old TV star ignored the wishes of the organisers of the annual bash at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (01.05.17) to take a bathroom selfie alongside a host of well-known faces, including her sister Kendall, half-sister Kim Kardashian West, ASAP Rocky, P. Diddy and Paris Jackson.

Kylie posted the image on her Instagram account and it has already been 'liked' more than two million times by her followers.

The post confirmed Kylie had realised her ambition of taking at least one selfie at the event in New York, even though guests were explicitly asked not to post pictures on social media.

Earlier in the evening, Kylie said: "I'll sneak a selfie, I always sneak a selfie."

Despite this, Kylie previously admitted that her social media accounts aren't necessarily a true reflection of her real-life self.

Speaking in 2016, the reality star explained: "I usually don't show my true personality to the world, because when you open yourself up so much, there's more room for people to say things about you."

Kylie explained that her public image is carefully orchestrated, admitting she doesn't want to reveal her true self to her followers.

She said: "This is where #WhoIsKylieJenner comes into play. I don't really say who Kylie Jenner is, you know what I mean?"

Kylie revealed, too, that a lot of thought goes into her Snapchat posts.

She shared: "I always like to give people what they want to see. It's not that I necessarily [want] to post all of my cars today. It's that I know people want to see that and live their life through ours."

Nick Cannon's Childhood Friend Died in San Diego Shooting http://www.gossipcenter.com/nick-cannon/nick-cannons-childhood-friend-died-san-diego-shooting-1761659 Nick Cannon's childhood friend was killed in the San Diego shooting on Sunday (04.30.17).

The 36-year-old presenter shared a heartbreaking story about how his close pal Monique Clark - a mother of three - lost her life along with six other victims when "senseless" gunman Peter Selis opened fire at an apartment in the Californian city.

Nick - who has five-year-old fraternal twins Moroccan and Monroe with ex-wife Mariah Carey - has been left distraught by the loss of his friend and is in "pain and shock" over the tragedy.

He insists he only has "wonderful memories" of Monique and said her "beautiful spirit" will live on.

In a tear-jerking tribute to Monique posted alongside a throwback photo of the pair when they were younger, he wrote on Instagram on Tuesday (02.05.17): "My heart hurts with great sadness tonight. I just learned that the one life lost in the senseless and tragic mass shooting in San Diego was my childhood friend, who was more like family, Miss Monique Clark. Such a beautiful spirit with an infectious smile. I have nothing but wonderful memories of this Angel. Tears can't express the pain and shock. A mother of 3, a sister, a daughter, a cousin, a friend and a Queen... Rest in Paradise. (sic)"

According to reports, the gunman, who was shot by cops, was "despondent" about his love life when he aimed the gun at the civilians.

Emily Ratajkowski Nearly Missed Out on First Shoot http://www.gossipcenter.com/emily-ratajkowski/emily-ratajkowski-nearly-missed-out-first-shoot-1761658 Emily Ratajkowski almost got turned away for her first photoshoot.

The 25-year-old actress was all set to appear on the cover of erotica magazine Treats! in 2012, but nearly lost the modelling gig for looking "scruffy".

The magazine's editor Steve Shaw has revealed he was told to tell the 'Gone Girl' star she was being dropped.

However, as soon as she bared herself naked they instantly changed their minds as they felt she looked like "Kate Moss but with a body".

He told The Sun newspaper: "We just were blown away by this beautiful body. I've never seen anything like her in my life. She's like Kate Moss but with a body.

"We're thrilled that being in Treats! was the springboard for her success."

If it wasn't for that shoot, the brunette beauty wouldn't have been cast in Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams' 'Blurred Lines' music video a year later, as the director of the promo, Diane Martel, suggested Emily for the job after seeing her cover shoot with Treats!.

Meanwhile, Emily recently admitted people struggle to understand that she can be sexy and smart at the same time.

Emily says people are often surprised when they discover she's also politically aware and intelligent, and she has branded their preconceptions as "sexist".

She previously said: "In every profile written about me, there is, 'She's so sexual and she's such a sex symbol,' paired with, 'But, wow, she knows about politics.' And that in itself is sexist. Why does it have to be one or the other?"

She also admits she's turned down a lot of movie roles because she doesn't want to be in a "big studio movie" which only really requires her to look hot in a bikini.

She said: "I am way more interested in working with unexpected and cool directors on interesting projects than being in this big studio movie where you're in a bikini. I turn down a lot of movies, but I have to fight for the ones that I really want."

Mel B 'Hit Full Force' by Father's Death http://www.gossipcenter.com/spice-girls/mel-b-hit-full-force-fathers-death-1761657 Mel B's former flame has claimed the star's explosive break-up with Stephen Belafonte was brought on by her father's death.

Christa Parker - who previously had a Lesbian fling with the 41-year-old beauty prior to her meeting her estranged husband in 2007 - says the loss of her dad Martin in March "hit her full force".

The 44-year-old businesswoman also said that Mel's nasty split from the 41-year-old filmmaker led to her reconciling her relationship with her mother Andrea, 61, and sister Danielle, 36, who she hadn't spoken to for several years because of their contentious relationship with the producer.

Christa told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I think that her dad getting sick, the reality of that, and him passing - that hit her full force.

"She was always close to her mum ands sister and dad.

"She talked to her mum every day, she talked to her sister every day.

"Her mum would come to LA and we'd all go out and do things."

On how the family drifted apart when Stephen came into the picture, she continued: "But when her and Stephen got together that just didn't happen anymore. She got rid of her old friends, people that were close to her, because he had to be in control of everything.

"Her family despised him. Stephen would call Melanie's mum and sister and just cuss them out and abuse them He didn't like Melanie around them, so that's why she cut them off."

Mel's sister recently branded Stephen a "psychopath", days after her older sibling was granted a restraining order amid allegations her husband had been abusive throughout their 10-year marriage.

The former 'Emmerdale' actress wrote on Instagram: "Dear all media I won't be selling a story on my sister never have and never will!! Here is my comment below so you can now leave me and my mum alone and let us be united and grieve the loss of my dad.

"@stephenthinks11 8 years of abusive calls me and my mum have had stating we would never see Melanie again.I am laughing and celebrating as you were wrong.you are a sorry excuse of a man !! To the left to the left everything you own in the box to the left I hope you... go to jail and rot in hell !! #wifebeater #physcopath #animalkiller #abuser #eventslocker #moneylaundering #fraud #criminal #adultery #kidnap #attemptedmuder #firearm #controling #violent #evil #devilman #gotmysistersback #united #mydadisdancinginhisgrave #dontmesswiththebrowns (sic)"

In her restraining order, Mel - who has 10-year-old daughter Angel with Eddie Murphy and 18-year-old Phoenix with Jimmy Gulzar - claimed Stephen had hit her, got their nanny pregnant and forced her to take part in threesomes.

Stephen was recently granted monitored visitation rights with their fiver-year-old daughter Madison, amidst the divorce battle.

Mariah Carey's Sweet Birthday Tribute for Twins http://www.gossipcenter.com/mariah-carey/mariah-careys-sweet-birthday-tribute-twins-1761656 Mariah Carey has posted a touching throwback picture of her twins Moroccan and Monroe on their sixth birthday.

The 36-year-old star took to Instagram on Sunday (30.04.17) to share with her 5.6 million followers a sweet picture of her cradling her little ones and gushed about how she loves them "more each day".

She also referenced them being born to the live track of her song 'Fantasy'.

She wrote: "I can't believe it has been six years since you two came into this world to the live version of Fantasy.. "the applause!!!" I love you both more each day. You are the light of my life #Supernatural #HappyBirthday #RocnRoe (sic)"

Meanwhile, the 'We Belong Together' hitmaker's ex-husband Nick Cannon, whom she had the twins with, is rumoured to be on the cusp of rekindling his romance with the blonde beauty - but Nick has insisted the duo are simply "family" for the time being.

Responding to the speculation, Nick recently said: "You do realise we're family, right? I meet them everyday."

Despite this, Nick recently admitted he wouldn't rule out a reunion with Mariah, although he doesn't want to "mess up what they have right now".

He said: "That is always family - and when I say that, I say that to a level of I will always love her. That's always my dream girl. Like, to me, just because we're not intimate, I'm closer with her than probably I've ever been just based off of that's my family, that's the mother of my children.

"We talk every single day. We spend more time with the kids' school, karate class, gymnastics class, like, it's a full-time job. I wouldn't want to mess up what we have right now trying to do something else."

In fact, Nick revealed he prefers to "purposefully" stay out of Mariah's personal life, following her recent split from dancer Bryan Tanaka.

He said: "I don't know because I'm not in it. I'm purposefully like, 'Let's go do something with the kids. I don't care what you do in your personal life.' I don't know. I thought it was bizarre as somebody watching from afar. I thought the show was very produced.

"I didn't say that their relationship was just for show. I thought the show fabricated a lot of stuff because, as a producer, I was like, 'Oh, they positioned that. They put the cameras there.' I was watching it from that perspective. But I don't know what the relationship actually is."

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott 'Super Into Each Other' http://www.gossipcenter.com/kylie-jenner/kylie-jenner-and-travis-scott-super-each-other-1761655 Kylie Jenner and beau Travis Scott were "super into each other" at Boston's Bijou nightclub on Sunday night (04.30.17).

The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians star - who split from Tyga last month after almost three years together - was seen by club-goers getting "intimate" and dancing the night away as the 25-year-old rapper made an appearance at the hotspot for his birthday.

An onlooker told People magazine: "He was definitely looking for something intimate.

"They also talked a lot. Like, actually having a conversation. They were dancing at the club. They were definitely super into each other. He didn't really perform, he just showed up and partied. They left in the same car too."

The 19-year-old cosmetics businesswoman was first seen getting close to the 'Antidote' hitmaker at Coachella last month as they strolled through the site together.

Twitter user: JaySos14 wrote: "Saw Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner making out during Dillon Francis set (sic)"

And another fan used social media to share a video of Travis and Kylie holding hands as they walked through the festival with their friends.

The weekend before, Kylie - who has been romantically linked with Travis for the last few weeks - "shared an awkward hug" when she ran into Tyga just before Kendrick Lamar took to the stage.

A source said: "Kylie looked really sad as she walked away."

The pair went their separate ways to watch the performance and Tyga, 27, seemed displeased when Travis joined Kendrick on stage to perform 'Goosebumps'.

The source said: "Once Kendrick went on stage, Tyga and his crew were escorted to the front of the stage to watch the performance.

"[Halfway through Travis' song, ]a bodyguard began pushing through the crowd with a flashlight to get Tyga and his friends away from the stag.

"After Travis exited the stage, Tyga emerged on the side nearest the fence to begin watching again, as Schoolboy Q took the stage to perform 'That Part' with Kendrick."

But it was previously claimed the make-up guru's new romance was all a ploy to make the 'Rack City' hitmaker jealous.

An insider said: "[Travis] and Kylie have also been friends for a while and they all hang out.

"When she and Tyga are having drama, she tries to make him jealous by hanging out with other guys."

Kelly Ripa to Announce Live! Co-Host http://www.gossipcenter.com/kelly-ripa-announce-live-co-host-1761653 Kelly Ripa will announce her new 'Live!' co-host on Monday (01.05.17).

The 46-year-old television presenter has been hosting the talk show with a slew of guest stars since her co-host Michael Strahan left the programme for a presenting job on 'Good Morning America' almost a year ago, but she has now announced the search for a permanent presenter is over and will be revealed on Monday's show.

Kelly broke the news to her fans when she took to Twitter on Sunday (30.04.17) to share a video of herself drinking from a 'Live!' branded mug with a question mark drawn on it.

The blonde beauty said in the video: "Tune in tomorrow. Trust me."

And the short eight-second clip was captioned: "We're going to need a bigger mug. #TuneInToLive #BigAnnouncement #LiveKellyCohost (sic)"

In September, Kelly and the 'Live!' crew embarked on the search to find a co-host from members of the public when they opened up a competition for a fan to win the chance to host the show alongside Kelly.

Speaking on the show at the time, Kelly said: "The moment you've all been waiting for ... You, that's right, you could be co-host. That's right, here!"

Detailing what viewers had to do to enter the competition, a post on livekelly.com read: "Submit a video pitch demonstrating why you have what it takes to sit next to Kelly Ripa ... and in the entry form make sure to tell us all about yourself in 100 words or less!"

The 'Marvin's Room' actress has previously enlisted the help of stars such as Jimmy Kimmel and Joel McHale to guest co-host the show.

Meanwhile, it was previously claimed Michael - who had been Kelly's co-host for four years before his departure - and Kelly had managed to resolve their differences in the interest of an amicable split.

A source revealed: "Kelly realised her issue wasn't really with Michael, but the network. Are they best friends? No. But there definitely is some peace."

Scott Disick's Secret Proposal http://www.gossipcenter.com/scott-disick/scott-disicks-secret-proposal-1273265 Scott Disick once proposed to Kourtney Kardashian.

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star was in a relationship with the 38-year-old television personality for nine years before they decided to call time on their romance and Scott has now revealed he once got down on one knee for his ex-girlfriend.

Speaking on the family's E! reality show, he said: "It was really weird. I don't think we told anybody actually.

"It was somewhat cute and then we just got scared about like media and this and that. And we were like, 'Let's just put the ring aside and we'll talk about it another day.' Never spoke about it again."

It comes after Kourtney urged Scott - with whom she shares Mason, seven, Penelope, four, and Reign, two - to be "consistent" before she agrees to give their romance another try.

She said: "I've told him, I'm living my life and you're working on you. You've never been better, but you're so inconsistent. I need to see if you can be consistent."

And Scott admitted he is still very much in love with Kourtney.

He shared: "I feel like I will never be over her. She's the love of my life, but I just try to do everything to be there for her, but there's literally no appreciation for anything ever."

Scott's party-loving lifestyle led to the collapse of his relationship with Kourtney and whilst he acknowledges that he was a large part of the couple's break-up, he is eager to see his family reunited.

He explained: "I definitely realise that a lot of things truly are my fault and I'm happy taking ownership for all that ...

"I just hope that one day she understands that I would never want to be with anybody but her."

Lucy Hale Goes Sober to be the 'Best Version' of Herself http://www.gossipcenter.com/lucy-hale/lucy-hale-goes-sober-be-best-version-herself-1273264 Lucy Hale quit drinking in order to be the "best version" of herself.

The 27-year-old actress has decided to put down the bottle and start a new chapter of her life, and says her decision comes after becoming fed up of having spent years trying to fit in with the Hollywood "it crowd".

She said: "I'm just always trying to surround myself with better people and be the best version of myself possible. I know it sounds obnoxious to hear people say that, but why not?"

And the 'Pretty Little Liars' star added that she now has "no interest" in the party lifestyle she's left behind, and would much rather spend her nights with her dog watching television.

The brunette beauty also admits she's become a devoted user of indoor cycling fitness company SoulCycle, which she says has become her "version of church".

She added: "I went through a phase that was almost like my freshman 15. It's so weird to see your weight fluctuate on a TV show. I go home, and my dad's like, 'You L.A. hippie with your crystals and your SoulCycle!'"

With 'Pretty Little Liars' coming to an end later this year with the end of season seven, Lucy also opened up about her struggles trying to fit in with the rest of the cast who were all much taller than her, and says she cut her long locks into a short bob as a way of finally taking ownership of her individuality.

She told Byrdie.com: "Becoming a part of this popular show ... everyone just says yes to you, so you get away with a lot, and then you make mistakes.

"It was hard being on a show with a bunch of tall girls. I just always felt like the odd one out.

"I know it seems silly because it's just hair. But at a point, I was like, 'Why don't I just own that I'm different?' I guess cutting my hair off was like me finally saying, 'I don't give a f**k.'"

Jennifer Lopez Happy to be Part of J-Rod http://www.gossipcenter.com/jennifer-lopez/jennifer-lopez-happy-be-part-j-rod-1273263 Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez's friends call them "J-Rod".

The 47-year-old singer-and-actress, who is nicknamed J-Lo, insists she and her retired baseball star boyfriend - who is known as A-Rod - don't mind the amalgamated name they are being referred to by the media as their pals had been using it for some time.

She said: "It's fine. We kind of thought that would happen... because people who knew us were already [saying] it. So, you guys, it's not like you were original or anything."

The 'Shades of Blue' star is very proud of her new Spanish language album and is always excited for Alex to hear the songs she's been working on.

Speaking at the Billboard Latin Music awards in Miami, Florida, on Thursday (04.27.17) - where she performed new track 'Mirate' - she told 'Entertainment Tonight': "It's an emotional song. A lot of the songs on the album are like that, even the up-tempo ones have like this beautiful lyrical content ... about love and life.

"I think it's one of the best albums I've made in a long time and i'm super proud of it.

"[Alex] loves it. I'm so excited, you know, every time I finish something, I bring it home and I want him to hear it.

"He's so supportive. He's such a supportive person and he's so lovely."

Unfortunately, the 41-year-old sportsman couldn't be by his girlfriend's side at the event.

Jennifer explained: "He's actually working in Connecticut but he will be here later."

The former 'American Idol' judge - who has twins Max and Emme, nine, with ex-husband Marc Anthony - recently revealed she had made the first move on Alex.

She said: "It's very simple, I was having lunch somewhere and...I saw him walk by and afterwards I went outside.

"For some reason I felt like tapping him on the shoulder and I said, 'Hi Alex!' And he was like, 'Hi... Jennifer' and I was like, 'Yeah! and that was it.

"I mean, more stuff happened but that's how we met.

"We didn't exchange numbers then, I said, 'What are you doing in LA?' He said, 'I live here now, what about you?' I said, 'I've always lived here', he said we should hang out. I was like, 'OK, you can find me, you have my number?' [He had it] from years ago.

"He said let's go out to dinner, so we did. We had a nice dinner."

Ellen DeGeneres Celebrates 20 Years Since Coming Out http://www.gossipcenter.com/ellen-degeneres/ellen-degeneres-celebrates-20-years-coming-out-1273262 Ellen DeGeneres admits revealing her sexuality on TV was the "hardest thing" she's ever done.

The 59-year-old talk show host - who is married to Portia De Rossi - is celebrating the 20th anniversary of her sitcom 'Ellen's famous coming out episode and though she admits publicly declaring her own attraction to women was tough, she doesn't ever regret it.

In an Instagram video, she shared a teaser of her monologue for Friday's (04.28.17) episode of her talk show, in which she fought back tears as she said: "You are here on a very special day. Today we're celebrating the 20th anniversary of the coming out episode of my sitcom.

"It was the hardest thing that I ever had to do in my life and I would not change one moment of it because it led me to be exactly where I am today standing in front of all of you."

And a clip from the opening moments of the show saw Ellen said: "I'm Ellen and I'm gay. 20 years ago I said that -- it was a much bigger deal then."

When Ellen and her character on the show came out on April 30, 1997, it was done in scenes taped in front of a live audience, and the blonde star has now explained why the iconic moment was called 'The Puppy Episode'.

She joked: "It was called 'The Puppy Episode' because we wanted to keep it a secret until it aired and because 'Ellen Throws Her Career Away' seemed too on the nose."

She then added: "Actually, the real reason we called it 'The Puppy Episode' is because when the writers told the executives that they wanted me to come out, because my character needed to be in a relationship after four years of not being in a relationship, someone at the studio said, 'Well, get her a puppy. She's not coming out.' "

In the episode, Laura Dern played openly gay Susan, who enlightened Ellen to her own sexual identity, and the actress was thankful to be a part of the key moment.

Speaking on Friday's show, she said: "It was so profound and I feel so blessed that I got to be there and witness that."

Oprah Winfrey is another guest on the show, and the preview showed her praising Ellen for her bravery.

She said: "You wouldn't have been able to open hearts and touch hearts and change people's minds and make a difference in the world had you not had the courage to do that."

Paris Jackson Warns Viewers Off 13 Reasons Why http://www.gossipcenter.com/paris-jackson/paris-jackson-warns-viewers-13-reasons-why-1761648 Paris Jackson has warned '13 Reasons Why' may leave viewers in a "dark place".

The 'Star' actress - who has previously attempted suicide "multiple times" - thinks Netflix's controversial program has done an "amazing" job of warning bullies their actions can have serious consequences, but admitted she is also concerned it could have a triggering effect on vulnerable people.

Paris shared a post warning away audiences from the show, which argued it was "incredibly irresponsibly handled and puts people in very real danger" and advised impressionable youngsters to stay away from the series.

She wrote: "This is really important to spread towards people that are struggling with depression or anxiety, self-harm, and or suicidal thoughts.

"This show was an amazing way to get the message across to bullies that they need to stop doing what they are doing.

"It really did a good job of showing how impactful words and actions can be to other human beings. You can't just do or say things to people without thinking about how it will affect them.

"But at the same time, it is also an extremely triggering thing to watch.

"Please only watch this show with caution and keep in mind that it may put you in a dark place. If you are struggling please don't watch it. If you think you can handle it, please by all means check it out.(sic)"

Paris - who is the daughter of the late Michael Jackson - previously admitted she had made a number of suicide attempts in the past.

The 19-year-old star said: "It was just self-hatred. Low self-esteem, thinking that I couldn't do anything right, not thinking I was worthy of living anymore."

'13 Reasons Why', which hit Netflix on March 31, is based on the 2007 novel 'Thirteen Reasons Why' by Jay Asher and revolves around Hannah, who kills herself following a series of heartbreaking failures brought on by a number of students within her school in California.

After Hannah's death, those individuals who contributed to her death received a box of tapes in which the troubled teen describes in detail how their actions led to her ending her life.

Janet Jackson Retains Friendship with Wissam Al Mana http://www.gossipcenter.com/janet-jackson/janet-jackson-retains-friendship-wissam-al-mana-1761646 Janet Jackson has retained a "strong friendship" with her ex Wissam Al Mana.

The 50-year-old star and her estranged husband are the parents of three-month-old baby boy Eissa and despite their high-profile separation earlier this month, the duo are still on good terms with each other.

A source said: "Janet really trusts Wissam and he trusts her. She and Wissam are working together to co-parent. They have a strong friendship. There is no fighting between them."

Janet and Wissam, 42, are working to provide the most stable home life possible for their baby son.

The insider told People: "They are very disciplined and the baby is already on a strict schedule."

And despite the collapse of their relationship, Janet intends to remain in London - where the couple had settled down over the last couple of years - for the time being.

The source explained: "It seems like she will stay in London for now while the baby is so young, but I can see her eventually moving back to the States. Janet is doing really well. She is just so happy to have her baby."

Meanwhile, Janet's creative director Gil Duldulao recently slammed rumours the singer was asking for a $500 million payout from the Qatari businessman following their split.

He wrote: "I want to state what I have to say as a friend. Even if there was a possibility that my friend could make $500 mil off of having a child. It's not in her character to want and or accept 500 mil. It's character people and she is not the one. She would never accept a payout or want a payout.

"That's the human being I know. So you f***ers that state that - f**k you. That's not my friend and will never be. Point blank period. AND if you checked your facts. She has been married for four years not 5 and something months to claim she will get 500mil. So keep trying you a**holes. Goodbye. (sic)"
