Celebrity Scandals: Gossip Center http://www.gossipcenter.com/site/rss2 en Gossipcenter.com Copyright 2010 Celebrity-Gossip.net - All Rights Reserved Sat, 25 Mar 2017 23:04:59 -0400 Amber Heard Was Labelled After She Came Out http://www.gossipcenter.com/amber-heard/amber-heard-was-labelled-after-she-came-out-1761495 Amber Heard became immediately "attached to a label" after she came out as bisexual in 2010.

The 'Magic Mike XXL' star didn't consider it a big deal to reveal her sexuality but soon realised the "gravity" of what she had said.

She shared: "I just answered honestly. I could tell by the look on this person's face it was a big deal. My poor publicist. Then I realised the gravity of what I had done and why so many people - studio execs, agents, advisors - did not want this coming before my name.

"I became attached to a label. I've never seen myself defined by the person I'm with. I saw myself being in this unique position and having a unique responsibility. So, I bit the bullet."

And her admission was not met with kind comments by some, who branded her sexuality as problematic.

She added: "As a leading lady, there's a certain amount of wish fulfillment. I was asked, 'How is anyone going to invest in you romantically if they think you're unavailable?' I said, 'Watch me do it.'"

And Amber felt she did prove people wrong as she is now one of many "romantic leading ladies who are out and fluid".

Speaking at The Economist's second annual Pride & Prejudice event in New York City, she said: "I stand here now amongst many of my romantic leading lady peers who are out and fluid. I'm one of many now, and I'm working ... If we're meant to reflect the world around us, the whole point of telling stories and reaching audiences is to challenge the status quo, to push the envelope. Not just to meet the status quo.

"We're in a unique position to do this. We need to be actively pushing ... If every gay man that I know personally in Hollywood came out tomorrow, then this would be a non-issue in a month. We have a long way to go."

Mel B Had Pre-Nup http://www.gossipcenter.com/mel-b-had-pre-nup-1761494 Mel's B's estranged husband is expected to get just £5 million in their divorce.

The former Spice Girls singer filed for divorce from Stephen Belafonte earlier this week and it has now emerged he won't be getting an equal share of her estimated £48 million fortune because they signed a pre-nuptial agreement before they tied the knot in June 2007.

A source told The Sun Online: "Mel is a canny Yorkshire lass and was advised to protect her assets and estate before the wedding.

"This wasn't an act of preparing for the marriage to fail but was an act of a hard-nosed business woman who knew the pitfalls that can lie ahead in any relationship."

It isn't known how much was stated in the documents, but legal expert Harold Walker admitted Stephen, 41, could get more than their pre-agreed sum if he could prove he had turned down work in order to support the 41-year-old star's business endeavours.

He said: "A figure could be added to the pre-nup if it is shown that he has effectively turned down work to be at his wife's side.

"I think a total of a £5 million settlement that includes the pre-nup and any additional lost work seems reasonable and certainly a lot less than half of £48 million."

It was previously claimed the former couple had taken their five-year-old daughter Madison and Mel's children Phoenix, 18, whom she has with ex-husband Jimmy Gulzar and Angel, nine, from her fling with Eddie Murphy, to a family therapy session in order to "make sure their kids are OK" in the wake of the split.

The pair were said to have travelled in separate cars to the session which took place in Mulholland Estates in Beverly Hills, at the home of Mel's long time psychiatrist Doctor Charles Sophy.

And all three children travelled in a third car with their nanny.

The reported family therapy session is believed to be the first session of this kind that the pair have attended, though it was previously reported they had tried couples therapy before their split to no avail.

A source said: "They started from the beginning when they realised they were very different people, who would argue and row. Their personalities were like fire and ice, one minute it was pure adoration and the next it was an all-out war.

"It led to them having blow-out arguments non-stop. However, as they got further down the line, the stress of keeping things together proved too much. The therapy prompted more fights and bitterness. Their connection by the end was all but burned out."

Marc Anthony: Jennifer Lopez Is My 'Girl for Life' http://www.gossipcenter.com/jennifer-lopez/marc-anthony-jennifer-lopez-my-girl-life-1761493 Marc Anthony says Jennifer Lopez is his "girl for life".

The 48-year-old singer was married to the 'Shades of Blue' actress for 10 years until 2014 and insists the pair will always be great friends as they have been close ever since they first met.

He told Extra: "If you want to get along with a woman, just get divorced ... I'm producing her Spanish album, which is, I'm telling you right now, some of the best work I've ever done and some of the best work that she's ever done.

"The fact that she put her career in my hands is a massive responsibility, but no one knows her like I do ... We've always been good friends from day one, you know. We met working, 20-something years ago ... She's my goombah. That's my girl for life."

Meanwhile, Jennifer - who shares nine-year-old twins Max and Emme with Marc - previously admitted the couple's split was "good for the whole family".

She said: "At first I was like, 'We're good with the kids and everything, but if we start working together, are we gonna start going at each other again?' And it's been awesome. Honestly, I think it's even helped our relationship.

"We're just in a really great place, and the kids get to spend time with the two of us more together and see us working together. It's just good for the whole family."

And the 47-year-old singer and actress considers her divorce from Marc as the "biggest disappointment" of her life.

She said: "It was devastating and awful. I think both Marc and I thought at the time we would be together for the next 40 years until we die.

"It was the biggest disappointment of my life so far. [But] I felt like at that time I had lost my way a little bit, of who I was in trying to make the marriage work.

"I had been married twice before and I didn't want this to be a failure ... I just put all my heart and soul into that and forgot who I was as an individual a little bit."

Kris Jenner Pitches for Kardashian Animated Show http://www.gossipcenter.com/kris-jenner/kris-jenner-pitches-kardashian-animated-show-1761492 Kris Jenner is making a bid for an animated television series featuring the Kardashian/Jenner family.

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star is reportedly keen to score the family another primetime slot with an animated show about "the entire family" including Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall and Kylie Jenner.

Kim reportedly met with Harvey Weinstein's company in Los Angeles at the beginning of March to pitch the idea, TMZ reports.

And with the hope of a new series, Kris' hope of finishing work at 5pm each day so she can spend more time with her family and friends could be out the window.

Of her plans to finish work at a sensible time, she revealed previously: "Some days that is more successful than others! I'm so lucky that my kids all live nearby so we are always spending a lot of time together.

"I love to have family dinners, barbecues or movie nights with my grandkids. A lot of the time we're all moving at a million miles a minute, so it's important to slow down, relax and enjoy the greatest pleasures in life: my wonderful friends, my amazing children and my beautiful grandkids."

And despite starring in the family's E! reality show, Kris wishes her life was "a little more private" sometimes.

She said: "We've been doing the show for nearly a decade, and since the show started we've opened up our homes to everyone and invited people into our lives, which means showing you the good along with the bad.

"As people got to know us through years of watching the show, we found that it wasn't really possible, nor would it be authentic to who we are and what the show is all about, if we tried to keep things from being filmed.

"There are moments that you wish could be a little more private, but the show has opened up so many doors to so many incredible opportunities, and I wouldn't change that for anything."

George Michael's Funeral Kept Secret by Family http://www.gossipcenter.com/george-michael/george-michaels-funeral-kept-secret-family-1761491 George Michael's family are keeping his funeral a secret from the late singer's friends.

The 'Faith' hitmaker - who was found dead in bed on Christmas Day (12.25.16) - is reportedly being laid to rest next to his mother at Highgate West Cemetery, north London on Sunday (03.26.17) but his close friends haven't been informed by his relatives when the service will take place and have been camped outside the graveyard waiting for movement.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "They are ready to crash the funeral. They are yards from the entrance. You can't miss the car. It's a great big Range rover with personalised number plate."

The ceremony at Highgate is just 250 yards away from where George - who was just 53 when he passed away from natural causes - is expected to be buried alongside his beloved mother Lesley and will be an intimate affair with just 30 people.

A source previously said: "The funeral is going to be a very small, private gathering. The chapel only seats 30 so, apart from family, there won't be many others there.

"The details are a closely-guarded secret. Most guests will be told what's going on a few hours beforehand. The idea is to avoid them being mobbed by fans trying to get a glimpse of their idol's farewell."

Though details for the service are being kept as quiet as possible, it is believed former Spice Girls singer Geri Horner will give a reading after George's Wham! band mate Andrew Ridgeley - who gave a touching tribute to his friend alongside backing singers Pepsi & Shirley at the BRIT Awards last month - felt unable to address the congregation as it would be too emotional.

The source added: "Andrew overcame massive anxieties to perform a tribute at the Brits. He was asked to read at the funeral but felt it would be too much. Instead, Geri has been asked to speak. The choice has raised eyebrows among some of his friends as the two weren't close when he died."

It was recently claimed George has left his £10 million London mansion to his older sister Melanie, 55.

Melanie is thought to have already moved into the home whilst she plans the funeral of the ex-Wham! star.

A source said: "George was very close to his whole family but he had a particularly special bond with Melanie, who was by his side at the height of his fame.

"She adores the Highgate house, one of the first he bought. They shared some wonderful times there and it has a special place in her heart. Melanie is staying there at the moment while she organizes the funeral."

Emma Roberts Terrified by Movie Script http://www.gossipcenter.com/emma-roberts/emma-roberts-terrified-movie-script-1761490 Emma Roberts felt so terrified reading the script for her latest movie that she felt she had no choice but to sign up.

The 26-year-old actress agreed to star in 'The Blackcoat's Daughter' after the script scared her terribly and still had an effect on her a few hours later.

She said: "This movie is definitely actually terrifying, whereas 'Scream Queens' is more fun scary. This is definitely a psychological thriller.

"When I read the script I knew I had to do the movie because it literally kept me up that night and I kept getting really scared, more so after I read it, like, a few hours later. It stuck with me, which is how you know it's really gonna be scary."

However, the 'Scream Queens' star insists scary movies aren't scary to film and admitted her pals make fun of her as she hates watching scary films herself but still stars in many.

She added: "I get so scared so easily, so it's kinda funny that I'm always involved in scary stuff. It's never scary when you're making anything scary, like, I was never scared on 'Scream Queens', or 'American Horror Story', or 'The Blackcoat's Daughter', but then watching it, you get scared ...

"My friends make fun of me, they're like, 'You were in the movie, why are you covering your eyes while you're watching yourself?' I think the cast are the most in the dark because you're doing it, but you don't get to see it, so it's always a nice surprise seeing everything put together. You're like, 'Oh, it worked!'"

However, Emma's younger sister Grace, 16, was unable to give her verdict on the movie as she found it too scary and had to walk out of the screening at the premiere.

Speaking on The Today Show, Emma shared: "My little sister ... was at the premiere last night and she actually had to leave the movie because she got so scared! So that's how scary it is but in a good way. I mean, it's fun to be scared sometimes."

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West Attend Self Help Seminar http://www.gossipcenter.com/kim-kardashian/kim-kardashian-west-and-kanye-west-attend-self-help-seminar-1761489 Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West attended a self-help seminar, which has been designed to set people free from fear.

The couple - who share North, three, and Saint, 15 months - were seen at the Unleash The Power Within seminar, run by Tony Robbins, alongside Kim's sister Khloe Kardashian and their mother Kris Jenner.

The group splashed out on the Diamond Premiere VIP pack, giving them front row seats to Tony's inspiring talks.

Taking to Instagram, Kris shared a video of the day, captioning it: "So this happened today!!! Thank you @tonyrobbins for the amazing day today!! You are truly so remarkable and my family and I appreciate you so very much. #lifechanging #gamechanger #bestdayever #tonyrobbins #bestenergy (sic)"

Kim and Kanye have had a tough time of it recently after the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star was robbed at gunpoint in Paris last October and the 'Only One' rapper was hospitalised with exhaustion a couple of months later.

And Kim is understandably still shaken by all that happened in Paris as she admitted reliving it all is still "very tough" for her.

Referring to the recent episode of her E! reality show where she opened up about the robbery, she said: "Tonight's episode is going to be very tough for me. However, I thought it was important to share this story through my eyes & not in an interview where my own words could be twisted. I have always shared so much & I'm not going to hold back when this was probably one of the most life changing experiences for me.

"I would never wish this experience upon anyone, but have learned some valuable lessons &feel so blessed to be safe home w my babies & husband. To my friends, family, and loved ones I can't thank you enough for being there when I needed you the most. To the French police, thank you for your incredible hard work (sic)."

John Mayer Misses Katy Perry http://www.gossipcenter.com/katy-perry/john-mayer-misses-katy-perry-1761488 John Mayer misses Katy Perry.

The 39-year-old singer/songwriter was in an on/off relationship with the 'Chained to the Rhythm' hitmaker for around 18 months until early 2014 and admitted his new single, 'Still Feel Like Your Man', was written about the blond beauty.

He said: "Who else would I be thinking about? And by the way, it's a testament to the fact that I have not dated a lot of people in the last five, six years. That was my only relationship. So it's like, give me this, people."

Lyrics to the track include: "Still like the letters in your name and how they feel, babe / Still think I'm never gonna find another you / Still like to leave the party early and go home, babe / And don't you know, babe / I'd rather sit here on my own and be alone, babe."

And John admitted his break-up from the 32-year-old singer inspired some other tracks on his new album 'The Search for Everything', but he also wrote other songs that are more "profound".

He told the New York Times newspaper: "There were times when tears came out of me, and I went, OK, John, this is not about an on-again, off-again relationship. This is something more profound."

The 'Gravity' hitmaker - who turns 40 in October - is ready to settle down and wants to have children.

He admitted: "I wish there was somebody to throw me the 40th.

"I want the baby with the protective earphones [by the side of the stage].

"I'm right on time for my career, and I'm running late for my life."

However, with failed romances with the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson and Taylor Swift behind him, John knows he has a reputation as a womaniser to shake off.

He said: "I've inherited a younger man's reputation. You can even break 'bad boy' into good bad boy and bad bad boy -- I somehow managed to become a bad version of a bad boy."

But the 'Your Body is a Wonderland' singer does use an exclusive dating app, though he insists he never meets anyone.

He said: "It's just lot of chatter. We all talk to the same people. There are very few people actually meeting up."

Casey Wilson Pregnant with Second Child http://www.gossipcenter.com/casey-wilson-pregnant-second-child-1761487 Casey Wilson is expecting her second child with husband David Caspe.

The 36-year-old actress - who is best known for portraying Penny Hartz in the ABC comedy series 'Happy Endings' - announced the happy news on her joint podcast with comedienne Danielle Schneider called 'Bitch Sesh' on Wednesday (03.22.17).

The brunette beauty shared: "Some big news on my end, which is that I am pregnant again."

Although she can't wait to welcome her second bundle of joy into the world, Casey - who is currently in her second trimester - opened up about suffering with really bad morning sickness throughout her pregnancy so far.

She said: "I'm so excited. I was feeling so sick for about a month, but now I'm ... not feeling great."

Casey and her screenwriter spouse David, 38, - who got married in May 2014 at an intimate outdoor wedding in the Californian city of Ojai - have been vocal about wanting to add to their brood ever since they had their 22-month-old son Max in May 2015.

She previously said: "We both come from two-kid families and I can't imagine going through life without a sibling, especially later in life."

The couple are yet to divulge whether they are expecting a baby girl or baby boy, but Casey said when she had Max that she didn't feel "ready" to have a little girl after the death of her mother.

At the time, she said: "Having lost my mom, and having had such a close mother-daughter relationship, I felt like somehow I wasn't ready for a girl.

"I felt like the universe is letting me try this out with a boy first."

James Corden: I'd Love to Bring Carpool Karaoke to High Wycombe http://www.gossipcenter.com/james-corden/james-corden-id-love-bring-carpool-karaoke-high-wycombe-1761486 James Corden would "love" to bring 'Carpool Karaoke' to his home town of High Wycombe in England.

The 38-year-old TV star has turned the segment on 'The Late Late Show', in which he shares a car journey with a well known musician, into an internet sensation and James has now revealed he'd love to bring the concept to the town in which he was born.

James said their route could take in the local villages of Micklefield, Loudwater and then Totteridge, adding: "Then we'd probably go up Amersham Hill ... through Hazlemere, through the crossroads, down, up to Holmer Green and then maybe you could carry on to Amersham. But that's a different town and I don't want to step on any toes.

"But yes, a 100 per cent. We'd stop in the Corn Market for a McDonald's."

James also admitted that because of the show's intense nature, a new idea can often come to fruition in a matter of hours.

He told the Bucks Free Press newspaper: "If we have an idea, we do it that night. We do like 300 shows a year or something crazy. We're always working on stuff."

Earlier this month, James admitted to being surprised by the success of 'Carpool Karaoke', and then revealed his intention to bring it to the UK.

He previously said: "It's taken us all by surprise, the success, especially of that particular segment.

"But we do have some stuff planned this year - which might involve being in the UK."

James said there are no concrete plans in place at the moment, but he would love to realise his ambition.

He explained: "We're talking about it now, really. We don't know if we'll be able to get it together but it's certainly something I'd love to do, for sure."

Beyonce FaceTimes Cancer Patient http://www.gossipcenter.com/beyonce/beyonce-facetimes-cancer-patient-1761485 Beyoncé has fulfilled a young cancer patient's last wish by FaceTiming her.

The 35-year-old singer surprised teenager Ebony Banks, who has been battling with a rare form of the disease, with a video call on Wednesday (03.22.17), because it has always been her lifelong dream to meet her "idol".

Speaking to KHOU about her last wish, Ebony - who is also known as Ebob - said: "She's [Beyoncé] like my everything and my idol. And if I ever met her, I would probably pass out."

The powerhouse singer - who has five-year-old daughter Blue Ivy with her husband Jay Z and is pregnant with twins - learnt about Ebony's dream to meet her through her school friends, who started up a campaign on social media with the hashtag #EbobmeetsBeyoncé in a bid to get Beyoncé's "attention" and make their classmate's dreams come true.

Speaking about the plan, one of Ebony's friends from Alief Hastings High School, Karina Gutierrez, told KTRK-TV: "Beyoncé is one of her idols. She admires her so much, so we're trying to put that on Twitter and Instagram to get Beyoncé's attention."

And another pal, Cristal Depaz, has vowed to do all she can to ensure Ebony is happy, despite her illness.

She explained: "We try to make sure she has a smile on her face and to make her wishes come true."

A video of the former Destiny's Child band member conversing with Ebony has since been shared on social media, which sees the vocalist wave and smile at her fan before declaring her love to her.

In the clip, which has gone viral, Beyoncé said: "I love you."

And the 'Dreamgirls' actress' response to the efforts stunned Ebony and her friends who put the plan into action.

Shayna McKnight said: "It was like, wow, it really happened. We actually got her attention."

Sharon Osbourne Returns to The Talk http://www.gossipcenter.com/sharon-osbourne/sharon-osbourne-returns-talk-1761484 Sharon Osbourne has returned to 'The Talk' after undergoing back surgery two weeks ago.

The 64-year-old TV star suffered a debilitating back injury six weeks ago when she playing at home with her granddaughters and although she initially thought little of the pain, the injury gradually worsened.

Speaking on her return to the program on Wednesday (03.22.17), she said: "I was on the floor with them playing with toys and I got up. As I got up from the floor, my back - I just felt this twist in my back at the base of my spine.

"I didn't think anything of it and then that night it was really, really hurting, And I thought it was because I put weight on again, because when I put weight on, I get back pain. And I'm like, 'Ah, I've got to go on a diet!' And then the next day I couldn't walk.

"What had happened was I had done my L3 and L4 disks damage and the L3 had kind of mushed up, but it had entangled around a nerve. So it was pressing on this nerve on my back that affected my legs. I couldn't walk properly."

Doctors were initially reluctant to see Sharon undergo surgery, but they decided it was the best course of action after an epidural failed to ease her suffering.

Sharon explained on the US talk show: "They tried to do it with an epidural to ease the pain - that didn't do any good, so I had to go in and have surgery. And I've been in bed doing nothing. My life has just been like nothing."

But Sharon is relieved she has now finally returned to work following her recent health woes.

She told the audience: "This is the best medicine I could ever have."

Debbie Reynolds' Final Wish http://www.gossipcenter.com/debbie-reynolds/debbie-reynolds-final-wish-1761483 Debbie Reynolds told her son she wanted to "be with Carrie" in the moments before she passed away.

Todd Fisher - who lost his mother Debbie and sister Carrie Fisher within days of each other in December 2016 - felt his mother was preparing him for her passing.

He recalled: "My mother said, 'I know that's tough. It might be tougher even, you know ... I don't know for sure when I [will] go.' I was like, 'Well, look, fortunately we don't have to face that right now, you know, we just face this.' But then she was like asking my permission [to go]. I [said], 'You're going to be OK, everything is under control.'

"And she starts running me back through her estate, which we had done many times. [She's like], 'You're going to take my dog and, you know, all these little instructions.' And [she] even [went through] last-minute changes due to the fact that Carrie left first, as far as the memorial service.

"I thought that we were just going through these events just like one would go back through an estate. But instead the next morning, we had a little further dialogue and she chose to leave the planet in front of my face two feet away ... She literally looked at me and said, 'I want to go be with Carrie' and closed her eyes and went to sleep."

Todd was very close to the 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' actress - who died after suffering a cardiac arrest - and has a particularly fond memory of when he took his first steps holding onto Carrie's hand.

He added to Entertainment Tonight: "My mother said to me the night that Carrie died ... we were talking that night and I didn't know what was happening, but she was setting me up for her leaving the planet.

"And she really just said to me, 'You know, I know that was really hard on you losing your sister.' [And I said], 'I mean, Carrie was there holding my hand when I took my first steps. I have film of that and it will be in the memorial.' And when I was editing that, it ripped my heart out."

Selena Gomez Bullied at the Disney Channel http://www.gossipcenter.com/selena-gomez/selena-gomez-bullied-disney-channel-1761482 Selena Gomez was bullied during her time at the Disney Channel.

The 'Heart Wants What It Wants' hitmaker started her career at the television network and has branded it "the biggest high school in the world".

She said: "I think he understood that I knew what it meant to be bullied. I went to the biggest high school in the world, which is the Disney Channel. And my mom had a lot of history dealing with [bullying]. I heard her stories growing up. She's very open about it."

Whilst her mother Mandy added: "When I was growing up, I was always bullied because I was the outsider, the weird girl with the purple hair and combat boots. Then I was a teen mom. You get really judged. I had counselors telling me how I'd ruined my life, [Selena's] life and how I ruined the father's life, even though he participated."

And the 24-year-old actress and singer admits social media has changed a lot since she first became famous and confesses to deleting Instagram from her phone "at least once a week" as she hates the negative comments posted on the photo sharing app.

In a joint interview with her mother Mandy for the New York Times newspaper, she added: "When I was on 'Wizards of Waverly Place', we didn't have social media really. Twitter had just begun. Every Friday, I'd get to do a live taping in front of all these little kids and make their life. That's when I was the happiest. Then, as I got older, I watched it go from zero to a hundred. So I'm actually glad it took us this long to create this project because it's so relevant now ...

"You can't avoid [reading the comments] sometimes. I delete the app from my phone at least once a week. You fixate on the [negative] ones. They're not like, 'You're ugly.' It's like they want to cut to your soul. Imagine all the insecurities that you already feel about yourself and having someone write a paragraph pointing out every little thing - even if it's just physical."

Kim Kardashian West Blasted Kanye After Paris Robbery http://www.gossipcenter.com/kim-kardashian/kim-kardashian-west-blasted-kanye-after-paris-robbery-1761481 Kim Kardashian West called Kanye West an "a**hole" for scaring her in the aftermath of her Paris robbery.

The 36-year-old beauty - who was robbed at gunpoint in the French capital in October last year - revealed she suffered a flashback to her traumatic experience in Paris when her chart-topping husband inadvertently startled her when he arrived home late from a gig.

In a conversation with Kris Jenner and her sister Kourtney, Kim explained: "I totally freaked out.

"He always comes up the back stairs. Like, I always know he comes out the stairs that go into my room. But he came up the front stairs, and all I heard were his feet stomping up stairs."

Kim admitted the incident shared similarities with the robbery in Paris, when she was bound and gagged by a group of thieves.

In a new clip from 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians', Kim recalled: "Like, at three in the morning, he came in, and that's the same time the robbery happened. After a concert, he can't hear that well, so I'm going, 'Hello, hello!' Like, exactly what I did [during the robbery], and he's not responding to me because he can't hear me."

Kim started crying and grabbed their three-year-old daughter North West just as Kanye walked through the door.

The curvaceous star said: "He walks in, and I'm like, 'Hello, a**hole.' [I'm] like, 'We've got to come up with a plan. You've got to announce yourself.'"

Kim's confession comes shortly after Kris admitted the Kardashians have increased their security after Kendall Jenner recently had thousands of pounds of jewellery stolen from her home.

The showbiz matriarch revealed that herself and her children - including Kim, Kourtney, Khloe Kardashian, Rob Kardashian, Kendall and Kylie Jenner - are "protected to a crazy level" now in the wake of the burglary.

Kris said: "It's an eye-opener how many people have tried to access our homes. [Now] we're protected to a crazy level."

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie on Talking Terms http://www.gossipcenter.com/angelina-jolie/brad-pitt-and-angelina-jolie-talking-terms-1273086 Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are reportedly on speaking terms again.

The 41-year-old actress filed for divorce from her hunky spouse in September last year after a row broke out between him and their 15-year-old son Maddox but, although the former couple have been communicating via lawyers for the past six months, it looks like the pair are slowly but surely making amends as they're speaking directly now.

A source told People magazine: "He's [Brad's] much happier. He's very relieved that things are not playing out in public anymore.

"It was a rough time, but they were able to resolve it. This is a work in progress."

As well as finalising the details of his divorce from Angelina, Brad is also battling the 'Maleficent' actress for joint custody of their six kids; Maddox, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

Although they appeared to be on bitter terms for a while, Angelina hinted that things were starting to get better between her and Brad, whom she married in 2014, last month when she said she hoped their divorce would make them a "stronger" family.

She said: "I don't want to say very much about that, except to say it was a very difficult time and we are a family and we will always be a family, and we will get through this time and hopefully be a stronger family for it ...

"Many, many people find themselves in this situation. My whole family, we've all being through a difficult time. My focus is my children, our children ... and my focus is finding this way through. We are and forever will be a family. I am coping with finding a way through to make sure that this somehow makes us stronger and closer."

And Angelina isn't the only ex Brad has been in contact with recently as he also reached out to his former spouse Jennifer Aniston after he tracked down her number via a "tangled web of contacts" to wish her a happy 48th birthday on February 11.

Jennifer also offered Brad, 53, some words of comfort regarding his high-profile split from Angelina, who he began a relationship with after his separation and subsequent divorce from the former 'Friends' star back in 2005 after four years of marriage.

Kate Winslet Was Told to Settle for 'Fat Girl Parts' http://www.gossipcenter.com/kate-winslet/kate-winslet-was-told-settle-fat-girl-parts-1273085 Kate Winslet was told she would have to settle for "fat girl parts" when she first embarked on her acting career.

The 41-year-old actress may now be a Best Actress Oscar winner and one of the most in-demand stars in Hollywood but when started her journey on screen she had to deal with a lot of rejections.

And for Kate a lot of the knock-backs she experienced were based on her appearance because she "wasn't the prettiest" as a teenager and casting directors would tell her that her looks would be a drawback for her.

Giving a speech to young people at WE Day held at The SSE Arena, Wembley in London on Wednesday (03.22.17), she said: "I got bullied at school, they called me 'blubber', they teased me for wanting to act, they locked me in the cupboard, laughed at me. I wasn't the prettiest, I've always had big feet, and I was even told that I might be lucky in my acting if I was happy to settle for the fat girl parts. And they would say, 'You're just not what we're looking for Kate,' I'd hear that a lot."

Kate admits there were times when thought about giving up on her acting dream because the comments rocked her self-confidence.

However, the blonde beauty refused to let the haters win and decided to keep going, and her determination to succeed led her to the role that changed her life starring as Rose DeWitt Bukater in 1997 romantic disaster movie 'Titanic' opposite Leonardo DiCaprio as her lover Jack Dawson.

She said: "I didn't have the perfect body and I would rarely hear anything positive so I began to feel uncomfortable in my own skin. It made it hard, I wanted to give up. 'Maybe I should rethink this acting thing,' I said to myself but it was my passion and it made me happy!

"Surely nobody could take my happiness away so I had to rise above it, I had to dig deep and be strong ... I was done with being told I looked wrong, I was done with being told I didn't fit that perfect mold. I wanted to be an actress and nothing was going to stop me. "So what did I do? I didn't lock myself up and give up on my dream, I fought back. I had to ignore the negative comments. I had to believe in myself. I had to choose to rise above it all and I had to work hard. You have to be indestructible to do what you love and believe that you are worth it."

Revealing how director James Cameron's decision to cast her in 'Titanic' changed her life and set her on a course to mega stardom, Kate urged the children in attendance at the event to be prepared to fail big, but to always try their best.

She said: "One day I was cast as Rose in 'Titanic'; the most unlikely candidate. Kate from the sandwich shop in Reading suddenly acting in one of the biggest movies ever made. You can be from anywhere and you can do anything, believe it. It is possible to overcome your fears. 'What if I fail, fall over my big feet?' Who cares? Be you! I learned to embrace my flaws to make no apology for who I am I dug deep and I decided that I simply wouldn't listen when they said my body didn't fit. This is who I am, the real me, Kate from Reading."

Wyclef Jean Feared for His Life http://www.gossipcenter.com/wyclef-jean/wyclef-jean-feared-his-life-1761478 Wyclef Jean was "scared for his life" after he was handcuffed by gun-wielding officers in a case of mistaken identity.

The 47-year-old singer was pulled over by Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department deputies investigating an armed robbery on Tuesday (21.03.17) and is relieved he never lashed out during his ordeal.

He said: "I have family on both sides of the lens but I got a chance to see what happens with a citizen versus a police firsthand.

"I have to tell you, I was scared for my life to the point where I could have acted different and if I had, something different could have happened."

Wyclef slammed officials for "racial profiling" and targeting him because he is black.

He said authorities were looking for a car with a paper license plate, but that his vehicle didn't have a paper plate.

He added to ABC News' Robin Roberts: "After I got out of the car, I have my backpack on, I'm coming from the recording studio. I'm automatically rushed

"When I'm rushed, guns are drawn, which is the part you don't see ... I'm pulled over."

Wyclef claimed no one told him why they handcuffed him and he was in "shock and awe" as the incident occurred.

He added: "I say, 'Well, my name is Wyclef Jean.' Then I'm taken and put in handcuffs in the back.

"The point I want to make and the racial profiling is that basically I feel like I was targeted as a black man.

"It is clear and was obvious because when I was getting out of the car and the way that the cops rushed me, the conversation that I was having with them, it was a silent and a death conversation.

"So as a citizen, I feel that, it is only right that if I am telling you my name and who I am, it only takes a second with the technology that we have to basically press a button and Google and say, 'This is Wyclef Jean.'"

West Hollywood police told Us Weekly in a statement that they were able to determine the Fugees star wasn't the suspect, and the person they were looking for was eventually located a few blocks away and charged with robbery and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Adele enjoys Record-Breaking Tour of Australia http://www.gossipcenter.com/adele/adele-enjoys-record-breaking-tour-australia-1761477 Adele broke records in every city she visited during her eight-concert tour of Australia.

The 'Hello' hitmaker sold as many as 600,000 tickets during her record-breaking tour Down Under, which included the biggest single concert ever held on Australian soil in Sydney's ANZ stadium, where she performed in front of 100,000 people.

Tour promoter Michael Coppel told the Daily Telegraph newspaper in Australia: "It's the highest-selling tour I've ever been involved with, which is quite remarkable after working with Pink and U2 and Fleetwood Mac and Roger Waters."

And Michael suggested Adele's achievement may never be repeated again.

He said: "We may never see her again."

Adele's show in Perth, Western Australia, was the quickest-selling event in Domain Stadium's history, while her gig at the Adelaide Oval beat the stadium's highest audience attendance record.

In Brisbane, meanwhile, Adele's two concerts attracted a combined crowd of 120,000 - which is a record for music events in the city.

The London-born star also performed in front of 75,000 fans at Etihad Stadium in Melbourne.

Despite being one of the best-selling artists of all time, Adele has admitted she still suffers from stage fright.

The singer-songwriter confessed in 2015 that she was finding it harder to perform on stage and was "too frightened to try anything new".

She shared: "I get so nervous with live performances that I'm too frightened to try anything new.

"It's actually getting worse. Or it's just not getting better, so I feel like it's getting worse, because it should've gotten better by now."

The record-breaking star revealed she was petrified of letting her fans down.

Adele added: "With my stage fright, I just don't want to let people down. I get so nervous onstage that I don't have the guts to improvise or anything like that."

Demi Lovato Laughs Off Photo Hack http://www.gossipcenter.com/demi-lovato/demi-lovato-laughs-photo-hack-1761476 Demi Lovato has laughed off her photo hack - insisting she doesn't care if the world sees a cleavage pic of her.

The 'Really Don't Care' hitmaker took to Twitter on Tuesday (03.21.17) to address reports that private photos of her naked have been accessed and leaked.

While she has seemingly confirmed the hack took place, the 'Heart Attack' singer insists the pics are far from racy.

Taking to the micro-blogging site, she wrote: "I love how everyone's freaking out about one picture. It's not nude and it's just cleavage (sic)"

The 24-year-old pop beauty - who is dating MMA fighter Guilherme 'Bomba' Vasconcelos - also joked about how there are already images of her showing off her ample assets widely available to the public including a previous shoot for Vanity Fair magazine.

She added in another tweet: "Besides the world has seen me nude BY CHOICE before.. #vanityfair #nicetry #cleavagegameonpoint #myboobsarenteventhatbig #angles. (sic)"

According to various reports, Demi was seen posing on a bed in an unzipped hooded top in the shot.

However, it's not the first time the brunette beauty has been caught up in a photo hack.

In 2013, pictures surfaced of her in bed with her ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama, which were reportedly meant to only be shared with her partner.

At the time, the hacker told RadarOnline: "These are Demi. The collection I have show some nude, including face, some including parts of the body Demi is known for - tattoos, butt, chin.

"Then, I have pictures of her getting rowdy ... I can guarantee you these photos are legitimately of Demi."

Demi joins a long list of celebrities who have been targeted by online bullies including most recently 'Beauty and the Beast' star Emma Watson, Mischa Barton and Amanda Seyfried.
