WEDNESDAY MAY 22ND
Yesterday I told you that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart broke up. Pictures were taken of Robert pulling away from Kristen’s place with all his stuff in the back of a pick-up over the weekend. At the time I didn’t know the cause of the break-up, but I’ve heard a few rumours since then. One of my sources tells me Robert left because Kristen is still in contact with her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders and check this out: Robert found out about it on his birthday. I guess Rob picked up Kristen's phone while she was in the shower, because he wanted to take a picture of something . . . and she got a text from Rupert as he was holding it. At that point, he told her it was over. My source believes it’s over for good now, as he just can’t trust her. Kristen went to Taylor Swift’s place after Rob moved out and spent most of her day there.
Meanwhile, there are rumors that Katy Perry had something to do with the breakup. She's reportedly been circling Robert for a while now. Rob was there for her when she split from Russell Brand and apparently she’s looking forward to returning the favour.
Hey, remember that monkey that Justin Bieber left behind in Germany because he didn’t have the proper papers for it when he entered the country? Well the monkey (named Mally) is still in Germany and the other day Germany’s Environmental Minister Peter Altmaier went to visit him. He told ABC News, "We are going to make sure that Mally can grow up appropriately for its species. Monkeys are very sociable animals… That's why we're going to take Mally to a place where he can live safely and in the company of others." No decision has been made as to which German zoo Mally will go to, but the Biebs is expected to get a bill for the monkey's care so far which is estimated at several thousand.
Apparently Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie still make out all the time. Brad said in a recent interview that he, "Once walked in and Angie was standing there and Zahara walked up and said, 'Daddy, you're not going to start making out with Mommy again, are you?'" So although Angie and Brad like it, apparently the kids don’t so much! In the same interview Brad also talked about a decision he made years ago, when he was still married to Jennifer Aniston.
He said, "For a long time I thought I did too much damage… drug damage… I was a bit of a drifter… I spent years [effing] off. But then I got burnt out and felt that I was wasting my opportunity. It was a conscious change." He continued, "It was an epiphany, a decision not to squander my opportunities. It was a feeling of get up. Because otherwise, what's the point?"
Justin Bieber can’t catch a break these days. Jon Bon Jovi was asked what he thought of Justin showing up late to that show in London a little while back. Jon said, "Every generation has guys that do that, none of that is new. They run the risk of disrespecting their audience members who have worked hard to pay for their ticket, to give YOU the permission to take two or three hours of their lives… or in that kid's case, 80 minutes of their lives. Do it once, you can be forgiven. Do it enough times and shame on you. They won't have you back. Then it just becomes a cliché. It's really not cool… you're an [A-hole]. Go to [effin'] work!"
How many times does this happen to you: You're in a moving vehicle and your door isn't shut properly. So you quickly open it and slam it shut. No big deal, right? Wrong. That's actually what landed George Michael in the hospital earlier this week. Witnesses say he was trying to open and shut his passenger side door, and he fell out of a Range Rover that was doing 70 miles per hour on the highway. George got a nasty cut on his forehead and the back of his head. He was wearing a black and gold Adidas tracksuit that was ripped all down the arm and shoulder. George's rep says he's still in the hospital, but only as a precaution. And he's, "making good progress, he's fine and he's really looking forward to getting home."
Kim Kardashian has flown to Paris, where she may give birth. I didn’t think she’d do it, but apparently she just wants to be with Kanye as much as possible in the run-up to the birth. She wants him there at the birth, and now she realizes that means it has to be in Paris. She’s finally come around to the idea of just staying there and having her baby in Europe. It’s one of their favorite places as a couple, so she thinks it will be romantic to have their child there. Having the baby in France makes it all about her and Kanye, rather than her family and the show – which is what she wants for her new family… apparently.

Cara Delevingne rejected Leonardo DiCaprio at a Cannes Film Fest party. My source says, "Normally all Leo has to do is look at a girl and they fall at his feet. Though Cara was having none of it. He spent the night chasing after her and essentially she blew him out. They spoke and he was pretty forward inviting her to a party back at his suite. They swapped numbers but that was it. He tried every trick in the book and apparently kept lunging for her but she kept dodging them. Everyone is howling at the fact she actually knocked back the biggest actor in the world. She thought he was too forward and too old."
TUESDAY MAY 21ST
One Direction and The Wanted still aren’t playing nice. The Wanted was just interviewed on an Australian morning show. During the interview, Jay McGuiness was asked what he thought of One Direction and specifically Harry Styles, he said, "I think Styles has retained manners and a bit of dignity, but some of them when they mouth off, it really gets under my skin." Jay added, "Because it riles up loads of 14-year-old girls, and there's no need for that." Upon hearing the interview, One Direction's Louis Tomlinson tweeted, "So frustrating when people talk the talk in the press but when it comes down to it not a word is said face to face!" The new series The Wanted Life premieres on June 2nd at 10pm ET on E!.
This is too cool! Zach Galifianakis took 87 year-old Mimi Haist to the premiere of The Hangover 3 last night. He met her at a Laundromat in 1994 when he moved to L.A.. In 2011, Zach rented Mimi an apartment and began paying her bills after he discovered she was homeless. She says she loves premieres. “If he’s in town, he takes me. Otherwise he lets me take a friend. I dress up nice and a friend helps me with my makeup. It’s fun, not something I’ve ever dreamed I’d experience. Afterwards, they have a party at somewhere close by and you meet the stars. I drink lemon drop martinis with Grey Goose vodka.” Renee Zellweger decorated Mimi's apartment and buys her groceries.
Gordon Ramsey is allegedly going to teach Bradley Cooper how to cook for his new movie about a drug addict chef. A source tells the Sun, ''Gordon jumped at the chance to be involved in this. He has a lot of showbiz pals in Los Angeles through being mates with the Beckhams. So it was only a matter of time before he got involved in the movie business out there. Gordon's going to be giving Bradley a crash-course in cookery and teaching him some flash tricks like knife-work so Bradley looks like an experienced chef. He's used to being in front of the camera, so who knows? A cameo in 'Chef' would be the perfect start if he wanted to dip his toe into acting.''
Paris Hilton is at the Cannes Film Festival in France... because, you know, when you think about the finest in world cinema, you immediately think of Paris Hilton. She showed up with her boyfriend River Viiperi on Friday, and they were swarmed by fans and photographers. Well, River must not be used to the attention, because he was obviously not having a good time. And when a female fan got too close to Paris, he shoved her. Twice. Not cool!
It's Official: Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio Will Be the New "X Factor" Judges. They're replacing Britney Spears and L.A. Reid next season, and will sit alongside returning judges Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato. Simon released a statement saying, "It's taken more than a decade but I'm delighted to finally be on a panel with three girls. (I think!)" Kelly was a judge on the British "X Factor", while Paulina judged the Mexican version of "The Voice".
Barbara Walters' 44-year-old daughter Jacqueline Danforth was arrested for DUI on Sunday near Naples, Florida. Details haven't been released. Jacqueline had her troubles with substance abuse as a kid, but she went on to run a "wilderness program" for troubled girls in Northern Maine. It apparently closed several years ago. Jacqueline was adopted by Barbara and her then-husband Lee Guber in 1968. Walters and Guber divorced in 1976, and Guber died in 1988.
Mary J. Blige already owes $900,000 in back taxes to the state of New Jersey. But that's nothing. Because the IRS just filed a tax lien against her for $3.4 million. They say she didn't pay any federal income tax in 2009, 2010 or 2011. Mary J. is also being sued for defaulting on a $2.2 million loan, and her charity is being sued for not paying back a $250,000 loan.
Sinbad Has Filed for Bankruptcy for the Second Time Since 2009. He filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which is different from Chapter 7 because you actually pay back some or all of your debt. You just do it over a three- to five-year period, and they can't seize any of your property to pay it off. Sinbad claims he has $11 million in debt, including $8.3 million in state and federal back taxes. Also, he "only" earns $16,000 a month, which isn't enough to keep up with his bills. Meanwhile, he claims only $131,000 in assets . . . including 200 copies of the book "Sinbad's Guide to Life", which are currently for sale on Amazon.com for $6.25 each. According to my source, Sinbad's bankruptcy filing from 2009 was actually rejected, because he failed to fill out the proper paperwork.
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have apparently broken up. There are pictures of him pulling away from Kristen's place this weekend with a pick-up full of stuff. Looks like he's moved out!
