While hooked up to a lie detector for a ‘Vanity Fair’ segment, Shawn Mendes dished on Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin, among other amusing topics.

Shawn Mendes was put on the hot seat for Vanity Fair’s infamous lie detector test on Monday. The Canadian singer, 23, nervously laughed through a series of questions while hooked up to a lie detector, dishing about girlfriend Camila Cabello, his pal Taylor Swift’s boyfriend Joe Alwyn, and, more notably, his idol Justin Bieber and his wife Hailey Baldwin, whom he infamously attended the Met Gala with in 2018.

“When you met Justin Bieber, did the Met Gala get brought up?” the interviewer asked, placing a photo of Shawn and Hailey at the gala on the table. “When we met? No,” Shawn replied. “Never talked about that.” The question came after Shawn answered other questions about his “Monster” collaborator, including whether he was nervous meeting the pop star since he has credited him as one of the main reasons he got into singing.

“Definitely,” Shawn responded, adding that he “probably had some face twitching” going on due to how nervous he was to meet Justin. “Did you say anything weird to him?” the interviewer asked, to which he replied, “Probably.” For context, Shawn and Hailey briefly dated between 2017 and early 2018 prior to the model’s nuptials to Justin in late 2018. As for Shawn, he has been dating Camila since 2019.

Elsewhere in the segment, Shawn said he had initially been “friend zoned” by girlfriend Camila. He also dished on whether he approved of friend and former tourmate Taylor’s boyfriend Joe. “I’ve never personally met Joe, but he looks like a sweet guy,” Shawn said. When the man monitoring the test said the singer was lying, Shawn admitted, “I mean he’s kinda got a little bit of a villain look about him. I mean, he looks like a nice guy . . . but he at any [moment] could turn into a villain, you know?”

The singer added that the British actor has “really blue eyes” and he finds it easier to “trust brown eyes.” The hilarious segment comes after the “Wonder” singer announced his upcoming tour, “Wonder: The World Tour,” pegged to his fourth studio album of the same name, on Instagram on Monday. “Announcing later this week!” he wrote of the dates. “Can’t wait to get out there and see you all again guys.” It’s unclear who will join him as opening act, but they probably won’t have blue eyes.

Britney Spears showed off her air guitar prowess while dancing to Lenny Kravitz in a tiny crop top and short shorts.

Pop star (and Lenny Kravitz fan) Britney Spears is back with her infamous dance videos. The singer, 39, shared a clip of herself dancing and playing the air guitar to “Are You Gonna Go My Way” by Lenny on Monday, Sept. 20 from her living room.

“Sorry I like long hair to twirl,” she said, presumably referencing her clip-in extensions. “So this is me after vacuuming my living room with this bomb 💣 new glade Hawaiian 🌺 breeze carpet cleaner !!!!! Holy hell it’s great …. my living room smells 👌👌👌 so nice to WAKE UP to !!!!! This song by Lenny Kravitz is a fun one to dance to … of course my favorite lyric is I WAS BORN !!!!”

“GOD BLESS YOU ALL and don’t forget to stay grateful and say your prayers folks,” she continued. The pop star added, “Pssss my red dye came out in the shower 🚿 and it looked like a crime scene.” After chopping off her hair and debuting some fun red tips last week, Britney said she opted for clip-in extensions after sharing other snapshots from her weekend getaway earlier on Monday.

In the post, Britney also gushed about her recent engagement to Sam Asghari. The personal trainer, 27, popped the question last week. “Some shots from my weekend getaway to celebrate my engagement with my … holy shit … FIANCÉ … I still can’t believe it !!!!” she captioned the post. “I couldn’t stay away from the gram too long so I’m back already . . . Psss I took these in Palm Springs with clip in extensions.”

The engagement news comes amid the pop star’s ongoing legal conservatorship battle. Family law attorney Sabrina Shaheen Cronin, founder and managing partner of The Cronin Law Firm, JD, MBA, recently offered insights on the engagement to HollywoodLife, revealing that the marriage could technically be dissolved if the couple wed before Britney’s 13-year long conservatorship came to an end.

“Britney has been under strict supervision for years, and, based on what has been shared and reported, her private life has been heavily regulated,” Sabrina said. “The conservatorship is supposed to be in place to make decisions that are in Britney’s best interest, so at this point, it would likely be up to the court to determine if the conservatorship is necessary and what the ramifications of the marriage would be if any.”

“It is possible, given the law, that the current conservator could petition the court to dissolve the marriage and argue that the marriage should be voided, and thus dissolved, due to Britney’s inability to consent because of mental incapacity,” Sabrina later added. “Although it is possible, it may not be entirely probable considering that Britney’s current conservator seems to be on her side when it comes to loosening the reigns and allowing Britney to exercise more control over her life.”

Only the best for daddy’s little girl. In a recent interview, ‘Family Feud’ host Steve Harvey admits that he ‘approves’ of daughter Lori’s romance with Michael B. Jordan.

Lori Harvey, 24, has her stepdad’s approval! Her and Michael B. Jordan‘s romance is as strong as ever, especially now that her stepdad, Steve Harvey, 64 approves of the relationship. The famed comedian recently spoke to PEOPLE about his feelings on the actor dating his stepdaughter in an interview on September 20.

“I don’t speak publicly about this type of stuff, but I’m happy for my daughter right now. I really am,” the comedian, 64, confessed. “It’s the first time I’ve been happy for her [in a relationship]. And it’s the first time she’s been happy. He’s just a good guy. If he wasn’t, get him out of here, ’cause I have ways,” the Family Feud host continued. “But I can’t say nothing bad, man. He’s just got a great family, man. He’s a spiritual guy.”

But, “he’s not the sexiest man alive to me, at all,” Steve joked, while referencing the title Michael was given in 2020. “I haven’t seen it. I haven’t seen anything sexy yet.” All jokes aside, Steve just wants the best for his daughter, as anyone would. “But I’m a father. I don’t give a damn if you [are] cute,” he continued. “I just want somebody to treat my princess the way I treat her.”

As of now, the lovebirds have been an item for almost a year now and show no signs of slowing down. As time goes on, it seems as if the model can no longer contain her love and adoration for her beau. During her appearance on The Real season 8 premiere on Monday Sept. 20, she confirmed that the pairing is truly a romance for the ages! “We just really balance each other,” Lori told co-hosts Loni LoveAdrienne Bailon HoughtonJeannie Mai Jenkins, and Garcelle Beauvais. “I really do believe in the statement when they say, ‘when you know you know.’ And I think that really applies to our situation and we just have a really good time together,” she added.

It seems as if she is not the only one that is head over heels. In an interview with People in April, Michael spoke about why he decided to be public about his relationship with Lori, after keeping his personal life private for years. “I’m still private, and I want to protect that, but it just felt like it was a moment of just wanting to put it out there and move on,” he said. “I’m extremely happy.”

Amicable exes Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson color coordinated their outfits while taking daughter True to dance class.

Khloé Kardashian and ex Tristan Thompson are making co-parenting work — and in matching outfits, no less. The former reality TV star, 37, and the NBA player, 30, stepped out to escort their daughter True, 3, to dance class in Los Angeles on Monday in color coordinated black outfits. Khloé wore a black tank and leggings with a matching black Prada fanny pack, while Tristan wore a black graphic tee and shorts.

As for little True, the tiny dancer wore a black dance dress with some bedazzling detail. The tot, who completed her look with pink sneakers and two pigtail buns, did not have to do much walking to her destination, as she hitched a ride by swinging on both of her parents’ arms. Both mom and dad wore black surgical face masks for the outing.

In another snapshot, doting dad Tristan can be seen holding his baby girl. The outing marks the latest in a string of family outings for the trio. While the on-again, off-again split for good in June, a source previously told HollywoodLife that the exes are in “a really good place right now,” explaining that Khloé makes a “conscious effort” to be on good terms with Tristan for the sake of their daughter.

“They’re totally friendly, and they talk, text, etc., all the time,” the source said. “It took some time to patch things up between them, but. . . Khloé has a heart of gold and doesn’t have the time or energy to put into holding onto grudges.” The insider added that the Good American founder “knows that it’s in True’s best interest to have an amicable relationship with her dad.”

“Khloé feels like it would do more harm than good to have any bad blood with Tristan, and that’s not what she’s about.” the source continued. “She made a conscious effort to avoid holding onto any pain or resentment, and she always tries to make the best of every situation.”

The recent dance class outing comes after Khloé spoke to E! News on Monday and gushed about her little girl. On top of dance class, True is also big on gymnastics. “She’s a gymnastics girl. I just love watching her,” Khloé said. “She’s very careful too, so watching her just be really timid and careful while her cousins have no fear; I’m proud of her for being a careful girl.”

After celebrating the first birthday of Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik’s daughter Khai, Dua Lipa and Anwar Hadid stepped out for a dinner date in the city.

Her model boyfriend, 22, on the other hand, mixed his prints for the outing, wearing a charcoal band tee and patterned blue and yellow pants. The dinner date comes after the “Levitating” singer joined her boyfriend for a family event over the weekend: the first birthday of Khai, the daughter of Anwar’s older sister Gigi Hadid and partner Zayn Malik.

Anwar and Gigi’s dad Mohamed shared snapshots from the festivities on Instagram on Sunday, including a photo of Khai surrounded by birthday toys and balloons. Dua was also in attendance, as the Grammy winner shared an Instagram Story of her holding Khai on Sunday. “Happy Birthday perfect angel Khai,” she wrote on the photo, tagging parents Gigi and Zayn.

The singer has been dating the model’s brother for two years now; and a source previously told HollywoodLife that Gigi — as well as fellow model sister Bella Hadidboth “adore” their brother’s girlfriend. “Bella and Gigi absolutely adore Dua and they are so happy that Anwar has found such an amazing woman,” the source said. “They think Anwar has been happier than ever. . . She’s such a positive energy. It’s hard not to love her.”

The source added that all three women were friends long before Dua’s relationship with Anwar, so the sisters have a “genuine friendship” with the singer outside of her romance with their brother. “She absolutely has the Hadid family’s blessing,” the source continued. “Gigi and Bella really do look at her as a sister. She fits right in.”

The duo are notoriously private about their relationship. In her interview with British Vogue in January, Dua explained the decision to maintain the privacy. “We’re quite private. We’ll only show you as much as we want you to see,” the singer said. “It’s a little bit of give and take, trying to find the right balance of being so excited and being in love, and wanting to share that with the people around me, but at the same time not wanting to put too much out there. I want to be able to just be happy in this relationship without having other people’s opinions.”

Gwen Stefani took to Instagram to reminisce on the day she selected her stunning wedding gown for her nuptials to Blake Shelton.

Gwen Stefani, 51, is looking back on the special moment that she said “yes” to her gorgeous wedding dress before she said “I do” to Blake Shelton, 45. The “Hollaback Girl” singer seemed to be feeling a bit nostalgic on Monday (Sept. 20) when she shared an Instagram post that included several videos and photos of Gwen in her Vera Wang gown, which she wore at her and Blake’s July 3 nuptials. The footage was taken the day Gwen tried on the ensemble, and as she revealed in her caption, the gown was only the second dress that Gwen tried on while shopping for her big day!

“the moment i said yes to the dress,” Gwen wrote, tagging stylists Mariel Haenn and Rob Zangardi, Vera Wang, and Blake. She also included the hashtags “seconddressitriedon,” “first fitting,” “dresssample,” and “thankuGod.”

Gwen looked like a model while showing off her gorgeous gown in the footage. The videos featured the No Doubt frontwoman smiling while strutting her stuff in the ensemble, which was a strapless lily white silk georgette and hand tumbled tulle bottom. She also took a selfie in the gown with her team that accompanied her, and posed for two more pics in her wedding day attire.

It’s unclear when Gwen first picked out her wedding dress, but it is of course known that she wore the stunning outfit again over the 4th of July Weekend to become Blake’s wife. The couple, who started dating in 2015, tied the knot at Blake’s 1,500 acre Oklahoma ranch. Gwen wore the Vera Wang dress for the ceremony, and then changed into a custom lily-white Italian silk crepe and hand-tumbled tulle strapless mini dress by Vera Wang Haute for the reception.

Gwen and Blake exchanged vows with a handful of close friends and family members in attendance, including Gwen’s three sons, Kingston, 15, Zuma, 13, and Apollo, 7. It was the second wedding for Gwen, who was married to Gavin Rossdale from 2002 to 2015. Blake had been married before as well — he was with Kaynette Williams from 2003 until 2006, and was married to Miranda Lambert from 2011 until 2015.

It’s now been over two months since Gwen and Blake’s wedding, and they’ve settled well into their roles as a married couple on their “honeymoon tour” throughout the summer. At one show, Blake even referred to his wife as “Gwen Stefani Shelton!”

From ‘Bling Empire’ to the ballroom! Christine Chiu is prepared to bring her sparkle and shine to ‘Dancing With The Stars.’

Fans will get to see a whole new side of Christine Chiu as she goes from Couture Queen to Dancing Queen! The Bling Empire star plans to make her ballroom debut tonight, Sept. 20th, on the 30th season premiere of Dancing With The Stars. Ahead of her major performance, Christine joined the HollywoodLife Podcast to dish on rehearsals, her biggest competition and of course, season 2 of her Netflix series! While her dance partner still remains a mystery, she did share that she has been “smiling from cheek to cheek” through practices.

“I think the first couple of days I was in disbelief, I was so giddy! The whole lower half of my face was very sore because it just couldn’t believe it!” Christine explained. “However, I actually think that worked to my disadvantage because the dance that we’re doing is a much more serious dance, so I had to shake that out of myself a little bit and get a little more serious.” The fashion icon also admitted she had to “cut out those mojitos and champagne” and tighten up her diet a little bit to get into “competition shape!”

“I just want to see myself hit all of the marks and do the best that I can,” Christine said of her hopes for her run on DWTS. “I don’t want to let down my partner because my he is an extremely talented, professional dancer, and you can tell he’s putting 200% into whipping me into shape. I really want to make him proud.”

She added that her ‘mystery partner’ has given her some incredible advice ahead of their debut performance, and one is that “it’s a marathon, not a sprint.” “He told me to really pace myself and to not necessarily set my eyes on the trophy or the prize, but to take it week by week — execute, absorb, feel the dance, feel the emotion and every movement and to enjoy and have fun, which is what I fully intend on doing,” Christine said.

A challenge she has already faced is the balance of long rehearsals and filming the second season of her show, Bling Empire. “I have basically three sets of glam a day. I start the day at 6am with Dancing With The Stars, and then I shift into my first look for Bling and then my second look for Bling,” the Taiwan native detailed. “At the same time, I have to emotionally and mentally shift gears as well, so that’s the most hard-hitting challenge that I’m experiencing right now.”

Luckily, Christine has been able to weave her DWTS appearance into her Bling Empire story, as she calls dancing “very much one of my strongest love languages.” “It’s a very authentic expression of me that I know we didn’t get to see in season one,” she said. “I was a little bit more, feisty and villainous, or aggressive in season one. And I think part of the fun is to explore the different sides and perspectives of the different cast members and I hope we get to explore dance.”

Be sure to tune into Dancing With The Stars tonight, Sept. 20th on ABC at 8 PM ET to see Christine and her partner take the ballroom floor. If you’d like to vote for her, text CHRISTINE to 21523!

Khloé Kardashian explained that her daughter True believes that her cousins are all actually her siblings in an adorable interview.

Some cousins can be as close as siblings! Khloé Kardashian, 37, revealed that her daughter True Thompson3, believes that her cousins Psalm West, 2, Chicago West, 3, and Dream Kardashian, 4, are really her siblings in a Monday September 20 interview with E! News. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star sounded incredibly happy and in awe of how sweet it is that her little girl is so close with her cousins.

Khloé explained that she wants to hold onto this adorable moment for as long as she can. “It’s amazing. I just pray it never stops,” she told E! News. “They all think they’re like, weirdly brother and sisters. I think like True thinks, we call Psalm ‘baby Psalm,’ so she’s always like, ‘my brother!’ And I just don’t correct her because I think it’s so cute.” Khloé shared a recent endearing photo of the cousins all together on Instagram in July. Back in June, she shared a photo of True with Dream and Chicago in matching purple outfits.

Even though they’re close, Khloé also explained how True is different from her cousins, especially as her daughter got into gymnastics. “She’s very careful too, so watching her just be really timid and careful while her cousins have no fear, I’m proud of her for being a careful girl,” the Kocktails with Khloé host explained.

It shouldn’t be a huge surprise that True thinks that her cousins are actually her sibling, because it seems like many of the Kardashian babies are close with their aunts. Khloé shared an adorable photo of herself holding Psalm in August, and the aunt and nephew looked really sweet together. Khloé captioned the photo “My main man,” as the two looked at the camera.

While True being close with her cousins is truly one-of-the-sweetest things, her mom has raved about her daughter on social media plenty of times. She’s sported a stylish “Mommy” necklace, while taking True to dance classes at the end of August. In another recent post, Khloé wrote about how special it’s been to watch True grow up. “I almost cry every time I call you ‘Baby True’ and you correct me. You say in the sweetest voice ‘I’m not a baby! I’m a big girl,’” she said.

Summer is just a state of mind, and from the photo that Rebel Wilson posted – with her enjoying paradise in a sultry black swimsuit – summer is going to last all year round for the ‘Pitch Perfect’ star!

Rebel Wilson didn’t write much in the caption of the photo she shared on Instagram on Sunday (Sept. 19). The Senior Year star just added a “black heart” emoji, likely because she was absolutely in love with the swimsuit she wore in the photo (taken by Laurie Bailey.) With her messy blond hair, large sunglasses, and low-cut one-piece, Rebel, 41, was a goddess of sea and sand. She could have done her own version of Ursula Andress’s iconic Honey Ryder scene from Dr. No. Instead, she posed for Laurie, who said she had to “head into the lagoon, fully-clothed, to get the shot.”

Judging by the reaction in the comments section, Laurie’s sacrifice was worth it. “Holy Moly,” wrote Brittany Hockley, and Chrissie Fit added, “Wowowowowowoow.” Alexis Knapp said that Rebel was a “Gorgeous Babe,” while Hugh Sheridan wrote a string of “fire” emojis before adding, “You little minx!” “You are so beautiful,” said one fan, while another one made the Dr. No connection. “BOND GIRL!” “FIERCEEEEEE is the word.” “So freaking cute!” “You look amazing. Well done.”

Rebel’s black swimsuit moment came roughly two weeks after she had an epic Pitch Perfect reunion on the beach. Rebel joined her fellow Bellas Anna KendrickBrittany SnowChrissie Fit, and Shelley Regner at the start of September on a private island that once belonged to Marlon Brando. “Bellas be ballin,’” she captioned the post of all of them in different swimsuits. Rebel rocked a hot pink outfit with her hair pulled up in a messy pony. “Could not love these ladies more! 10 years since we met and instantly harmonized. Love you ladies!” she captioned the pic.

Fans got a bit of a “preview” of this black swimsuit photo on Sept. 11. Rebel posted a picture of her while in a tropical paradise. She wore a black mini-dress while standing in ankle-high water. “Goodbye #HotGirlSummer,” she captioned the shot, her wavy blonde hair flowing in the breeze. “Hello, AwesomeGirlAutumm.” Sure, it wasn’t a swimsuit in a lagoon, but Rebel was wearing a black outfit while in some tropical waters. Rebel shared a follow-up photo of her in a red wetsuit and how adventuring “on the remote islands of French Polynesia is ABSOLUTE PARADISE.” She also gave love to the Brando Resort for “conserving their ecosystem and the environmentally friendly ways they do things on the island.”

Ben Affleck has broken his silence on Bennifer 2.0! The actor praised on-again girlfriend J.Lo in a new interview, and said he’s ‘in awe’ of the superstar.

Ben Affleck, 49, truly is Jennifer Lopez‘s biggest fan of all. In an interview with AdWeek published on Sunday, Sept. 19, Ben gushed over his 52-year-old girlfriend, marking the first time he’s publicly spoken about the Bennifer 2.0 romance since the A-list stars got back together in May 2021 after breaking off their engagement in the early 2000s.

“All I can tell you is that I have seen firsthand the difference representation makes because I have seen, over and over and over and over, women of color approach Jennifer and tell her what her example as a strong woman and a woman succeeding and demanding her fair share in the business world means to them,” Ben told the publication. “I am in awe of what Jennifer’s effect on the world is.”

Ben raved about Jen some more, saying that she’s “inspired a massive group of people to feel they have a seat at the table in this country.” Ben added of his beautiful girlfriend, “That is an effect few people throughout history have had, one I will never know and one I can only stand by and admire with respect.”

Ben’s kind words about J.Lo come less than week after the together-again couple stole the show on the red carpet of the Met Gala. While J.Lo initially walked the carpet solo, Ben caught up with the superstar and the two shared a romantic smooch while wearing masks in front of photographers. The outing was actually Bennifer’s Met Gala debut, as the couple never went to the star-studded event together two decades ago.

Since they got back together, Ben has been nearly inseparable from J.Lo. The beloved couple have enjoyed a plethora of vacations and trips together, as well as some family outings with Jen’s kids Max and Emme, 13, whom she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony, and Ben’s children Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 8, whom he shares with ex Jennifer Garner.

Ben and Jen first got together in July 2002, and were set to be married on September 14, 2003. However, the two called off the nuptials and cited intense media scrutiny attention around their scheduled Labor Day wedding. After a brief split, Ben and J.Lo reconciled — only to break-up for good in January 2004.

In ‘How to Save a Life: The Inside Story of Grey’s Anatomy’, Justin Chambers opens up about leaving the series nearly two years his shocking exit.

For longtime viewers of Grey’s Anatomy, Justin Chambers‘ departure from the series in Jan. 2020 was one of the most heartbreaking over the past 17 seasons. And now, nearly two years after his exit, he’s opening up about why he chose to walk away from the massively successful ABC drama.

In How to Save a Life: The Inside Story of Grey’s Anatomy, which is set to be released on Sept. 21, author Lynette Rice shares behind-the-scenes secrets about the show, including Justin’s exit from the series. And during his interview for the new book, which was obtained by HollywoodLife, Justin said, “You’re in a bubble [on the show]. You wear scrubs every day, you see pretty much the same people every day, in the same four walls, the same studios, you drive the same route to work. For me it [was] sort of a factory job for acting. You just clock in, clock out. Yeah, I guess it is sentimental, but it’s sort of like, ‘Wow, I just can’t believe how fast it’s gone.’”

When Justin first announced he was leaving the show in January 2020, fans were caught off guard. And what made matters worse was that Justin’s last episode had already aired two months prior, so viewers didn’t get a proper goodbye. But Justin was tired and he wanted to pursue other career opportunities.

In his initial statement, he said, “There’s no good time to say goodbye to a show and character that’s defined so much of my life for the past fifteen years. For some time now, however, I have hoped to diversify my acting roles and career choices. And, as I turn fifty and am blessed with my remarkable, supportive wife and five wonderful children, now is that time. As I move on from Grey’s Anatomy, I want to thank the ABC family, Shonda Rhimes, original cast members Ellen Pompeo, Chandra Wilson, and James Pickens, and the rest of the amazing cast and crew, both past and present. And, of course, the fans, for an extraordinary ride.”

Then, in an episode that aired in March 2020 — two months after Justin’s announcement — it was revealed that Alex Karev left Seattle to reunite with Izzie (Katherine Heigl) and their twins.

She also shared some other happy snaps from the couple’s vacation, including a pic of her paddle boarding in a red bikini, and later snuggling up to her husband in a bright green two piece. Her latest post, which she captioned simply with a sparkling star emoji, came just a couple of days after she opened up to singer Demi Lovato about being called “Justin’s wife.”

“When you marry someone that is really well known, you also accept that a lot of the time people are going to be like, ‘Oh yeah, that’s blah, blah blah’s wife.’ It doesn’t bother me,” 24-year old Hailey said on the September 17 episode of “4D with Demi Lovato.”

“It bothers me when people try to take it and flip it and be like, ‘People wouldn’t know who you were if you weren’t his wife.’ Because I disagree. I’m sorry, but I disagree…I have all my own work relationships, I do my own thing, I have my own job, I have my own money,” she told the Camp Rock alum. “When we split up and we didn’t talk for a very long time, I feel like I worked very hard to continue establishing who Hailey was and I still work to establish that.”

Not only has the former ballet dancer turned supermodel walked the biggest fashion runways in the world from Paris to New York, and graced the pages of countless luxury fashion magazines, but she also has a very thick skin. Most recently, a crowd of excited fans heckled Hailey and Justin about his ex Selena Gomez at the Met Gala on Monday, September 13. A TikTok video showed the famous couple walking the carpet as fans could be heard chanting, “Selena! Selena! Selena!”

Hailey’s cousin Ireland Baldwin, who is and daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger, swiftly came to her defense. “They’re one of the happiest and most in love couples I’ve ever gotten the chance to be around. They don’t care about them,” Ireland wrote in support of her family member.

Mayra Verónica, who dated Sam in 2015, revealed she thought her model ex-boyfriend ‘hit the jackpot’ with fiancée Britney Spears!

Britney Spears‘s ex-girlfriend Mayra Verónica is so happy for the model and fiancée Britney Spears, 39, after their recent engagement. “I feel great, I feel very happy for them — he finally hit the jackpot!” Mayra, who is an actress best known for film Pledge This! and Miami Snow, said to TMZ on Saturday, Sept. 18 outside of the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. The 41-year-old was quick to explain that Britney hit the “jackpot,” as well.

“She hit the jackpot, too — he’s supportive. A really, really supportive guy. And after all she’s been through, she deserves that,” Mayra added, referencing the pop star’s on-going battle to end her legal conservatorship against dad Jamie Spears, 68, which she’s been under for 13 years.

When Mayra was asked if she thought Sam was in the relationship with Britney for the “right reasons,” she once again only had positive things to add. “He was a really sweet guy. I was in a similar position when I met him — my management, my publicists were extremely, extremely controlling. He was always super, super supportive so I think she’s with the right guy,” she added.

In her recent court testimonies, Britney confirmed she refuses to work — including live performances — until her conservatorship is done.

Sam has been a source of support for Britney over their five-year relationship, particularly through her current legal battle. Mayra added that she “hopes” the couple’s relationship “lasts,” but that it’s “hard to tell” in Hollywood. “I hope [it lasts],” she added in the brief interview. “With Hollywood it’s hard to tell…but he’s just such a charming, sweet guy so I hope so, for her sake. I hope it lasts,” she explained.

Britney took to Instagram to confirm her engagement to Sam just before the MTV Movie Awards aired on Sunday, Sept. 12! The blonde showed off her circle cut engagement ring in a brief, edited video as Sam beamed next to her. “can’t f***ing believe it!!!!!!” Britney gushed in the caption.

John and Kelly were very open about his autism and revealed her had Kawasaki syndrome, which is “an illness that causes blood vessels to become inflamed,” according to WebMD. “He was autistic, he had seizures and when he was very young, he had Kawasaki syndrome,” Kelly reportedly said in an episode of The Doctors in 2012. Jett sadly died in 2009 at the age of 16 after he suffered a seizure at his family’s vacation home in the Bahamas.

I have at least 30 more years.’ He said, ‘What’s wrong with that?’” John explained on Hart to Heart in Aug. 2021. “This is a 10-year-old telling me that! It changed my viewpoint.”

Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie's Kids Then & Now — PICS




The actress, who is the daughter of Jon Voight, 82, recently visited the White House to speak about the importance of the Violence Against Women Act. In a short video from the appearance, Angelina let out a nervous laugh as she snapped a photo in front of a White House podium, looking poised and elegant in a sleeveless black turtleneck and cream midi-length skirt.

During the visit, she also met gymnasts McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman, and Maggie Nichols, who spoke about the FBI’s handling of the Larry Nassar investigation in a Senate hearing. “I was honored to meet with some of the brave US gymnasts who appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday,” she captioned her social media post. “I’m in awe of their courage and commitment to preventing future failures to investigate abuse,” she also said.

The appearance came amid Angelina’s on-going child custody case with ex Brad Pitt, 57. In late August, Angelina was granted full custody of the couple’s minor children, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 15, and 13-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox (eldest son Maddox, now 20, is legally an adult). In a rare interview, Angelina confessed she “feared” for the safety of her kids during her relationship with Brad.

“I’m not the kind of person who makes decisions like the decisions I had to make lightly. It took a lot for me to be in a position where I felt I had to separate from the father of my children,” she said during the same interview with The Guardian.

Gabrielle Union wore nothing but a pair of underwear as she danced in the window of a New York City apartment, and opened up about being ‘vulnerable’.

Gabrielle Union, 48, served “dancing cricket vibes” in a funny new Instagram video. The actress, who is releasing a new book titled You Got Anything Stronger?, shared the clip on September 19, which showed her dancing in the window of a New York City apartment wearing nothing but a pair of black underwear. “Giving strong dancing cricket vibes,” she wrote in her caption. “But when folks ask what it feels like to be so publicly vulnerable… This right here.”

She continued, “Seriously though, if you have ever felt like you might literally die from humiliation, being vulnerable can be a challenge but lemme tell youuuuuuu, it’s actually FREEDOM. Peace & joy can live side by side with vulnerability.” The post came a few days after Gabby revealed her soul was “shattered” when she learned her husband Dwyane Wade, 39, fathered a child with another woman.

“The experience of Dwyane having a baby so easily—while I was unable to—left my soul not just broken into pieces, but shattered into fine dust scattering in the wind,” she wrote in an excerpt from her book, which was shared by Time magazine on Sept. 10. The pregnancy news completely shattered the Bring it On actress as she was undergoing IVF treatments at the time.

“In 2013, before we were married, Dwyane had a baby with another woman. It should go without saying that we were not in a good place at the time that child was conceived.” As fans would know, Dwyane had a baby with Aja Metoyer, a “longtime friend.” The two welcomed Xavier, who is now 7.

“To say I was devastated is to pick a word on a low shelf for convenience,” the author wrote. “There are people—strangers I will never meet—who have been upset that I have not previously talked about that trauma. I have not had words, and even after untold amounts of therapy I am not sure I have them now.”

She wore a bright blue Dolce & Gabbana dress that had an off-the-shoulder top at the The Story of My Wife premiere and looked incredible. It was covered in multi-colored 3D floral pieces and captured the attention of everyone around her when she stepped onto the red carpet. She also paired it with massive diamond earrings, topping off the look perfectly.

Khloe Kardashian shouted out sister Kim’s ultra-popular shape wear line as she posed for a sexy new photo, looking absolutely flawless.

Khloe Kardashian, 37, just owned the ‘gram with this snap. The Good American founder looked stunning as she posed against a wall in a nude colored mesh dress with a beige SKIMS tube top and purple underwear. Khloe gave her best model poses in the series of five photos that were seriously magazine worthy! A pair of chunky gold hoop earrings peaked behind her straight blonde hair, matching the two gold bangles on her right wrist as well as her two layered chain necklaces (including her gold and diamond pavé ‘Mommy’ necklace for adorable daughter True Thompson, 3).

She added a pop of color with a bright, cherry colored red lip, opting to go with the same color for her Insta-worthy pedicure and talon manicure. She finished her beauty look with a flirty smokey eye and luscious lash extensions, amplifying her gorgeous look. “It’s all about the Skims,” Khloe declared in her caption, shouting out older sister Kim Kardashian‘s popular shape wear line. The 40-year-old launched the line back in late 2019, and has since expanded to include not just solutions-based shape wear and bodysuits, but plenty of loungewear (including her nostalgic velour and terry lines).

“Stop this right now,” friend Simon Huck commented on the sexy photos. “Bad AF,” and “Bae,” two of her followers added, while many others simply left fire emojis on the snaps.

Khloe regularly posts about her fitness routines on social media, so it’s no surprise to see her looking so amazing. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star last shared an at-home workout for fans in August via her IG page, laying out her exact routine that included warming up on stairs and various sets of circuits. “Don’t forget to stretch before and after your workout,” she warned her millions of followers. Under instruction from trainer Joël Bouraïma, Khloe proceeded to do 10 weight squats with her heel, 10 deadlifts, and 10 seated shoulder press (with her “back straight” and “abs engaged,” she noted).

Gabrielle Union’s new book has reportedly played a ‘big part’ in healing her past relationship struggles with now-husband, Dwyane Wade.

Gabrielle Union, 48, is set to release another book, in which she opens up about her husband Dwyane Wade, 39, fathering a child with another woman. A source close to the former athlete told HollywoodLife that Dwyane was “ready” for Gabrielle to tell the whole story about their relationship in the book titled, You Got Anything Stronger? “She was upfront with him the whole time,” the insider shared with HL exclusively. “He noticed that writing this book and being so open and real only helped their relationship and that is what was the most important thing for him.”

The source continued, “They are now in a much better place seven years into their marriage than they have ever been. The book has been a big part of the healing process and Dwyane and Gab are very happy about that because they really love each other.” In the book, Gabrielle revealed her soul was “shattered” when she learned that Dwyane had fathered a child with someone else.

“The experience of Dwyane having a baby so easily—while I was unable to—left my soul not just broken into pieces, but shattered into fine dust scattering in the wind,” she wrote in an excerpt from her book, which was shared by Time magazine on September. 10. The pregnancy news completely shattered the Bring it On actress as she was undergoing IVF treatments at the time. “In 2013, before we were married, Dwyane had a baby with another woman. It should go without saying that we were not in a good place at the time that child was conceived.”

Dwyane and his “longtime friend” Aja Metoyer welcomed Xavier in 2013, and their son is now 7. “To say I was devastated is to pick a word on a low shelf for convenience,” the author wrote. “There are people—strangers I will never meet—who have been upset that I have not previously talked about that trauma. I have not had words, and even after untold amounts of therapy I am not sure I have them now.”

Steve Jobs’ widow Laurene Powell Jobs and her lookalike daughter Eve were spotted shoe shopping at Dolce & Gabbana in Rome. See the pics!

Eve Jobs, 23, has been spotted on a rare outing in Rome, Italy. The daughter of the late Steve Jobs was photographed shopping with her mom Laurene Powell Jobs, 57, at Dolce & Gabbana on September 17 — see all the pics here. The mother-daughter duo explored Rome’s Spanish Steps neighborhood, and did some window shopping while wearing protective face masks. Laurene, who was married to the Apple co-founder for 20 years before he died in 2011, is worth an estimated $21 billion after inheriting his fortune.

She was dressed in a black jumpsuit which she paired with a mesh undershirt featuring a geometric pattern. She styled her blonde tresses in loose waves as she accessorized with a long gold necklace and black handbag. Eve looked equally chic in a cream crop top with high waisted jeans which she paired with a baby blue belt. The duo were later seen dining with friends at Nino’s restaurant.

Laurene and Eve are in Italy for the Longines Global Equestrian Championship, which took place September 16 to 18. Eve competed in the first day of trials, and her proud mom watched from the sidelines. The Stanford University alum is an accomplished equestrian and  often shares social media photos from festivals and competitions that show her in action on her horse.

Earlier this year, she also confirmed her romance with and Harry Hudson, 27. If his name sounds familiar, it’s because he’s a longtime Kardashian family friend, and the sweet couple put on a PDA display in the January 2021 pics.

Harry is also a musician who’s released two albums, including Yesterday’s Tomorrow Night, which was released in 2018, and Hey, I’m Here For You, which he dropped in 2020. After moving to Los Angeles from Liverpool, where his mother hails from, he met Kendall and Kylie Jenner, who helped promote his music and in turn, led him to meeting siblings Jaden and Willow Smith. He later teamed up with the A-listers to form MSFTS, an “art collective and lifestyle brand that encompasses music, fashion, education and more.” Talk about a power couple!

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis were spotted walking outside of a restaurant in Studio City, where they had a nice breakfast date on the morning of Sept. 18.

Ashton Kutcher, 43, and Mila Kunis, 38, enjoyed a little alone time on Saturday morning and made sure to look cute in matching tops while they were at it! The actor and actress, who share daughter Wyatt, 6, and son Dimitri, 4, together, wore white T-shirts as they walked outside of a restaurant in Studio City, CA where they had breakfast. He also wore a baseball cap, black pants, white sneakers, and red face mask while she wore denim shorts, white sandals, sunglasses, and a black face mask.

The lovebirds walked beside each other during the outing and appeared comfortable and relaxed. Ashton held his phone some of the time and Mila, who had her long locks pulled up, had her hands in her pockets.

The solo outing comes just a couple of weeks after the doting parents were spotted taking their kids for haircuts at The Yellow Balloon in Studio City. Both of the tots left with yellow balloons in their hands and looked happy to be out and about with their mom and dad. They all wore denim of some kind and face masks as they stayed safe outside of the salon.

Before Ashton and Mila’s latest outings, they made headlines earlier this year when they admitted they don’t bathe their kids regularly. They made the admisson on Dax Shepard‘s podcast, Armchair Expert in July and it caused a frenzy among the public, even influencing other celebs to weigh in and share their own bathing habits. After explaining that they feel there’s “no point” to washing children everyday, Mila explained she has felt that way since the birth of her children.

“When I had children, I also didn’t wash them every day,” she said on the podcast. “I wasn’t that parent that bathed my newborns ever.”

“Now, here’s the thing: If you can see the dirt on them, clean them,” Ashton also chimed in. “Otherwise, there’s no point.”

Ben Affleck took his two daughters for a sweet treat! The actor enjoyed his ice cream in a cone while Seraphina and Violet opted for cups.

Ben Affleck is the best dad ever! The 49-year-old was spotted in the Brentwood area with his girls Violet Affleck, 15, and Seraphina Affleck, 12, enjoying ice cream in a waffle cone on Friday, Sept. 17. Violet and Seraphina also enjoyed a cool treat, opting to keep theirs in easy (and less messy) cups. Ben looked low key and relaxed as he sported a face mask and aviator sunglasses, along with his favorite blue-and-red plaid shirt.

The flannel button down has been sported by the Oscar winner numerous times over the years, and has even inserted itself into the “Bennifer” zeitgeist: Ben’s girlfriend (and notably, former fiancée) Jennifer Lopez, 52, also showed some love for the shirt when she sported it on a private flight to Los Angeles. Eagle-eyed fans quickly noticed the oversized item on the “Dear Ben” singer, which she threw over a crop top and white sweatpants, as she descended down the plane’s staircase on June 11 with her kids Max and Emme, 13, in tow.

For his family outing, Ben threw the fall-ready item on with a pair of black jeans and white-and-cream colored sneakers. Violet and Seraphina were also casually dressed, with the 15-year-old — who is the spitting image of her mom Jennifer Garner, 49 — rocking a magenta colored dress and camel leather wedges. Seraphina showed her style with a pair of bright green Crocs, ribbed sweatpants from Alo Yoga, and a black sweatshirt bearing a “W.”

Ben’s hangout with Violet and Seraphina comes after his back-to-back trips with J.Lo, which included their red carpet debut at the Venice Film Festival! Jennifer stunned in a white gown as she supported Ben at the premiere of his film, The Last Duel, where they packed on the PDA. Ben and Jen, who were engaged from 2002-2004, looked so in love as they kissed for the cameras and screaming fans, keeping up the PDA as they toured around Venice, Italy in the following days.

Hot off their Euro trip, the two touched down in NYC where they also appeared at the Met Gala together. Jennifer totally embodied the “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” theme was she sported classic American designer Ralph Lauren, who designed a custom western inspired look for her (complete with a hat). Nodding to the COVID-19 pandemic, the couple exchanged a masked kiss on the red carpet before heading into the glamorous soirée.

The day after, Ben also accompanied Jen to her home borough of The Bronx were she showed her support for a local Latina bookstore under her new philanthrophic venture Limitless Labs. Ben and Jen glowed as they happily greeted fans outside. At one point, the Pearl Harbor actor stepped out for a solo smoke inside where he shared a laugh with a Bachelorette party, noting that his “girl” was inside.

‘Cake Boss’ star Buddy Valastro spoke with Rachael Ray about his hand injury and how it’s been healing one year after it threatened his career as a baker, in a preview of an upcoming episode of her show.

Buddy Valastro, 44, is filled with gratitude one year after an accident at his home bowling alley crushed his hand, leaving it severely injured. The Cake Boss star gave chef Rachael Ray an update on the status of his hand after five reconstructive surgeries on a new episode of The Rachael Ray Show, which will air in full on Sept. 20. In PEOPLE‘s sneak peek of the show, which can be seen above, he revealed that the injury is “95 percent” healed.

“I say we’re about 95% [healed] — which if that’s as good as it’s going to get, Rachael, I’ll take it,” he said while speaking to Rachael through a video on the episode.

The tough year was documented in a TLC special called Buddy Valastro: Road to Recovery and despite the long healing process, Buddy continued filming his Food Network and discovery+ show with Duff Goldman, Buddy vs. Duff.

“It’s definitely been an amazing ride,” he further told Rachael. “The fact that I was able to still do what I love, like doing that last seasons of Buddy vs. Duff, it was amazing because of the fact that I could still do it.”

“You know, once you get over a certain age, 95%, we’ll take it for anything,” she joked with him after he gave her the update. “Our memory, our body, our back — if we’re at 95%, we’re good.”

Buddy’s hand injury happened when he was spending time at home with his family on Sept. 20, 2020. His bowling alley pinsetter malfunctioned and when he tried to fix the issue, his right hand became lodged in the machine, leading to a metal rod coming down and into the upper middle section of his hand three times. He shared the news on Instagram along with a photo of him sitting in a hospital bed with his hand wrapped and received numerous support from family, friends, and fans.

Of all the people who stuck by his side during the traumatizing time, Buddy credits his wife Lisa and their four children, including daughter Sofia, 17, and sons Buddy Jr., 16, Marco, 13, and Carlo, 10, for helping him the most. “They definitely stepped up to the plate,” he told Entertainment Tonight in July. “In times of crisis, you don’t know what people’s reactions are going to be. ‘How are we going to do this?’ ‘What are we going to do?’ We all came together and I am so proud of my boys and thankful to my whole family.”

It comes a couple of weeks after the Hannah Montana alum performed at another festival, and opened up about “rebuilding” her life. As fans would know, her Malibu home was burned down during dangerous wildfires in 2018. She reflected on the experience at the 2021 BottleRock Napa Valley Festival on September 4.

“This song, to me, relates to the changes that I’ve been experiencing in my life, and the things that I’ve lost have come back in what I never knew I wanted or needed to gain,” she told the crowd, per The San Francisco Chronicle. “Even though sometimes it feels like we have to start from nothing, like with the house fire, and completely rebuild. That fire was almost three years ago and I’m just feeling like I’m starting to find my stability now.”

“I had a theory I would die if I didn’t have a partner. If I didn’t have someone to kiss me every single night. But then this was my purpose, but this was taken from me during COVID, so then I found a new purpose and that’s music [which] is the glue over the last two years and it was what was keeping us strong at the time,” she explained. “I’m just so fortunate to call myself a musician and I never want that to be removed from my life because it’s what fuels me.”

Mary-Kate Olsen looked confident and strong while competing and placing third in the Longines Global Champions Tour in Rome, Italy on Sept. 18.

Mary-Kate Olsen, 35, stepped into the spotlight on Sept. 18 when she competed in a horseback riding competition. The actress reportedly came in third place at the Longines Global Champions Tour and looked comfortable as she sat atop her horse in equestrian gear and sunglasses. She also showed off her skills while leaning into her horse during some riding moments as she focused her attention in front of her.

Mary-Kate’s latest horseback riding competition is not too surprising considering she’s been interested and participating in the sport since she was a child. She previously told HITS about her love for the activity in an interview that’s been posted to her profile on the website.

“I was six when I first fell in love and it was with a pony named 4×4,” she told the outlet while also mentioning she competed on the equestrian team at Campbell Hall School in Studio City, CA when she was a student there. “Having horseback riding as an outlet was super important because it allowed me to have another life and outlet outside of work and school. I continued to ride through high school and stopped when I moved to New York.”

“I came back to the sport because I missed it every day that I wasn’t riding,” she continued. “It was the hardest thing to leave and the hardest thing to come back to.”

Mary-Kate’s third place finish in her latest competition proves she’s back and doing incredible, which is awesome to see since she made headlines with her rocky divorce from ex Olivier Sarkozy, 52, last year. They reached a final agreement in Jan., which seemed to go well despite the hearing having to be held via Zoom.

When she’s not settling personal issues or riding horses skillfully, Mary-Kate’s working hard with her sister Ashley Olsen, 35, on their fashion lines, including their couture fashion label The Row and clothing line Elizabeth & James. It turns out her love of horseback riding has influenced that part of her life as well. “One of The Row’s first blazers was inspired by one of my first show jumping coats,” she further told HITS. “My sister and I always think about fit and comfort when designing anything which is important in equestrian clothing as well.”
