KENDALL & KYLIE JENNER CAN'T KEEP UP WITH FEUD

Kylie Jenner




E! NEWS -- It's getting hard for Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner to keep up with their parents' ongoing feud. 


As the drama surrounding Caitlyn Jenner's new memoir, The Secrets of My Life, continues to divide the Kardashian family and play out on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, a source tells E! News exclusively Jenner's own daughters have grown distance from the transgender Olympian. 


Our insider describes Kendall's relationship with Jenner as "very strained," revealing that the 21-year-old supermodel "rarely speaks" to her father. The source adds, "Kendall is loyal to Kris[Jenner] and has very little to do with her dad. The more time that has passed, the more she feels Caitlyn has let her down with the things she has said and with her actions."


Meanwhile, E! News has learned that Kylie is still in contact with Caitlyn, but has found herself at odds with loved ones that continue to defend Kris. 


The source insists, "Kylie has really made an effort not to take sides and to be supportive of Caitlyn. She really wants to have a relationship with her dad, but Caitlyn has hurt Kris tremendously and it's made it very difficult."

"With everyone in the family on Kris' side, it's hard on Kylie," the source continues. "She tries to keep it separate and doesn't want to discuss it with the rest of the family."


And despite the makeup mogul attempting to keep the peace, not having a solid bond with their dad has impacted both Kendall and Kylie negatively. "Both girls really struggle with not being close to Caitlyn," our source says. "It's left a big void in their lives to not have the father they grew up with. She was a part of their lives every single day."


Caitlyn has spoken openly about the backlash she's felt from her estranged ex-wife and stepdaughters, admitting on Australia's Today show that she hasn't spoken to Kim Kardashianin a "long time."


"I love Kimberly, I think she's a wonderful person," the 67-year-old admitted. "But, well, to be honest with you, I really haven't talked to her in a long time. I've kind of let everything calm down. So I kind of stay, you know, I keep my distance."


She continued, "I'm out there trying to make a difference in the world. There's a lot of drama in the Kardashian family. This is my book about my opinions on things that had happened with me and my family. Any time I express my opinion, you know, with my family, there's always challenges in doing that."


Jenner also expressed hope that her inner circle's wounds would one day heal, telling The Talk co-hosts, "[Kris and I are] not talking as much as we used to, but I'm sure that'll change when everything calms down.""


"I miss everybody," she shared. "My house is open. My relationship with some of the kids is better and with others, it's maybe a little more strained. But I think as time goes on, that'll change."


In 2015, Caitlyn first publicly revealed her intent to live as a transgender woman in a 20/20interview with Diane Sawyer.

INSIDE WAR BETWEEN ANGELINA JOLIE & BRAD PITT

Brad Pitt




E! NEWS -- When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie boarded a flight from Nice to Los Angeles last September, neither of them could have realized the trip would mark the beginning of one of the nastiest splits in Hollywood history.

We now know the fated journey, during which Brad got into a disagreement with his 15-year-old son Maddox, would lead to an explosive FBI investigation into what really happened on the plane.

Less than a year earlier the couple had posed together on the red carpet while promoting their latest movie together, By the Sea—ironically a film about the breakdown of a marriage. Despite the depressing subject matter, Brad and Angelina acted like two people deeply in love as they held hands and looked adoringly into one another's eyes while photographers joyfully snapped away.

Their romance had a rocky beginning, due to the perceived overlap with Brad's previous marriage to Jennifer Aniston. Yet it didn't take long for Brangelina to become the hottest couple in Hollywood. During their 11 years together, Angelina transformed from the "other woman" into a regal world-class humanitarian and director, while Brad managed to shed any doubt over whether he should have stayed with his first wife by becoming a doting father to six incredible children.

To describe them as "head over heels" during their happiest moments would be an understatement. As a source, who socialized with them on a number of occasions before their split, explained to me, "I've never spent time with two people more intoxicated with one another. The chemistry when they were in the same room together was palpable."

But then, seven months ago, it all fell apart. As they traveled from France to the U.S., they stopped in Minnesota to refuel, setting off a chain of events that sparked a public battle of epic proportions not seen since Brad's split from Jen.

It was clear from the moment the sensational news broke that Angelina had filed for divorce that this was not going to be like the goop-sanctioned breakups we have been privy to in the past. Instead of consciously uncoupling amid joint photo opportunities with estranged spouses and co-parents putting on their best movie star smiles, there were jaw-dropping allegations, most of which were aimed in Brad's direction. Had he been drinking excessively? Did he get too close to his Allied co-star Marion Cotillard? Was he too strict with the kids? The never-ending blame over who was really at fault for the disintegration of the most public of marriages played out on the front pages of newspapers around the world.

Marion Cotillard Sounds Off on Brad Pitt Affair Rumors: I Don't Give Energy to This

Little did we realize, as the headlines started to pile up, that the explosive nature of the breakup was merely mirroring the relationship dynamics that had been playing out behind closed doors in the months before that fated trip. "Things had been volatile in their relationship for a little while," says an insider. "They had crazy fights and wouldn't speak for a bit. They would take some time apart, go on location, calm down and miss each other.

"But, no matter how bad it got, Brad, especially, was never planning on walking away. Every so often, Angelina threatened divorce, but in Brad's eyes, their lives were stressful because they were raising six kids, things were always going to work out."

Obviously he was wrong.

By Thanksgiving, the war between the Jolie-Pitts was reaching fever pitch and Brad had barely seen the kids since Jolie filed for divorce seeking primary custody. Confusion still remained even after he was cleared by authorities in the plane incident. Then when he was temporarily granted only supervised visitation, it ominously seemed that Brad and Angelina would never see eye to eye.

But as 2017 rolled around, there was a ceasefire. Finally, the two managed to agree on something— and that was to seal any court documents relating to custody, thus putting an end to the publicly frosty he-said, she-said as Brad fought for more access to their kids.

In February, when Angelina was promoting her movie First They Killed My Father in Cambodia, she broke her silence on the split, telling the BBC, "We are and forever will be a family. And so that is how I'm coping. I'm coping with finding a way through to make sure this somehow makes us stronger and closer."

It was only weeks later that we discovered the exact meaning behind her words. Brad had secretly traveled to Cambodia as well, on a prearranged trip so he could spend time with the children. While Brad and Angelina opted to stay in different accommodations, it was still a clear improvement from the bitter rivalry that had split their family apart the previous fall.

So what changed? A source explains, "Brad was shocked at how quickly their family just blew up. Both him and Angelina had always led very private lives and did everything they could to stay out of the public eye for the children's sake. That was an important value and vision that they both shared. And then, for Brad, it felt like she took the kids away and started an all-out war, and that was hard for him to reconcile.

"They did not speak at all for months," the source continues. "He was furious with her in a way he has never been furious before. This was a defining moment in his life and he felt devastated and lost without his kids. He wanted to protect them but everything was discussed through lawyers."

According to our insider, from the very start Brad hoped the details of their split would remain confidential, but it took some time for both of them to agree on their differences. "They have made some progress and are taking small steps in the right direction. Both are in agreement on putting the kids first. So that part of the equation is better."

It's now been seven months since Angelina's surprise filing and, while things are far from the fairy tale we once imagined their life to be, the Jolie-Pitts are managing to regain some of the privacy they once enjoyed. The kids are now rebuilding their relationship with their father, and the actors who first met when they played an embattled couple in Mr. and Mrs. Smith are finally on speaking terms. Things are starting to go back to a new kind of normal for the clan.

"The kids have always adored Brad and have a very solid relationship with him," says a friend of the pair. "He is a fun dad and extremely loving and affectionate but definitely the disciplinarian and stricter of the two parents. They have occasional moments, like any parents and kids do, but at the end of the day there is nothing but love, role modeling and guidance at the core."

Therapists have also helped bring the family back together. "Angelina regrets the way she handled certain things and wants to be at peace with Brad," the friend says. And Brad "will continue to put the kids first and not say anything negative about their mother.

"He feels like his life fell apart in one day. His kids are everything to him and their happiness and success is what's most important. He would never ever put them through what they went through if he could have prevented it."

As far as those inevitable rumors that the pair might become the Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton of the modern era, our sources say a romantic reconciliation is very unlikely. "Brad is way too upset still. He blames Angie for how public everything became," one insider says. "He knows that eventually it is best to forgive her and be on good terms for the sake of the children but he feels let down in a way he never thought was possible. He saw a different side of her and he can't forget. The way everything went down has been beyond comprehension."

Although the source does warn us that, when it comes to these two, you can "never say never."

Angelina has also been doing her part to try to heal the inevitable pain a family feels when it is torn apart. While initially choosing to rent a Malibu home for her and the children to reside in post-blowup, she has now forked out $25 million so the kids can live just a few streets away from the home they shared with their dad in Los Feliz. "Going back and forth from Malibu was far and inconvenient," confirms an insider. "They will be moving in this summer and will continue to see Brad more regularly."

Ultimately, there are six young people who matter more to Brad and Angelina than any slight or hurt feelings.

"It all comes down to what's best for the kids," the source says, "and Brad hopes that somehow, some way, they will come out of this stronger and better off. He is going to devote his life to being the best dad he can be."

E! NEWS GETS INSIDE STORY ON AMANDA SEYFRIED BABY

Amanda Seyfried




E! NEWS -- Welcome to the parenthood journey,  Amanda Seyfried and Thomas Sadoski.


It's only been a couple of weeks since the Hollywood couple welcomed their first child into the world. In a short amount of time, however, the pair has already experienced plenty of joy as mom and dad.


"Like all first time parents, they are overwhelmingly happy and overwhelmingly exhausted," a source shared with E! News exclusively.


Our insider added, "They're surrounded by loving friends and family and they can't imagine going through all of it with anyone else."


While the newlyweds have yet to reveal any personal details about their daughter, it's perfectly clear that 2017 is already turning into a very special year.


During a recent appearance on The Late Late Show, Thomas revealed that he secretly elopedwith Amanda in March.


"We just took off into the country with an officiant and just the two of us, and we did our thing…We had a great day," he shared. "It was perfect."


According to Thomas, both parties wrote their own vows and recited them in front of Amanda's dog who was in attendance.


"She's the person I love, admire, respect most in the world," Thomas gushed to James Corden. "It was beautiful. It was everything that it should be. It was just the two of us talking to each other."


While a wedding was more than exciting, it was the arrival of a newborn that really had this couple pumped for the future. While supporting their new movie The Last Word, the couple gushed about their future family member.


"I'm ready to go," Amanda admitted to E! News' Marc Malkin. "I'm ready to meet the kid!" Thomas added, "I'm terrified but I couldn't be more excited. She gets the singing. I do the diaper changing."


Congratulations again to the happy couple!

E! NEWS CATCHES RYAN GOSLING @ CINEMACON

Ryan Gosling



E! NEWS -- Gosling jetted into Las Vegas for CinemaCon to promote Blade Runner 2049, the much anticipated sequel to Ford's 1982 classic Blade Runner. Ford reprises his iconic role of Rick Deckard while Gosling plays a mysterious LAPD officer.


E! News asked Gosling what was more nerve-racking—making a musical or shooting his first scene with Ford?


"I think the latter," Gosling said. "[Ford] is just the best as a guy, as an actor in every way. He's such a part of my childhood and he was so great how he showed up to set, just rolled up his sleeves and got to work. He was the best partner, collaborator you could have.


"They created such a legacy with this film," he continued. "Time has proven its specialness. So obviously we wanted to do right by him and by the original."


And then there was the time Ford accidentally punched Gosling in the face during a fight scene. "Or I leaned into it," Gosling cracked. "There's a strong chance that that's what happened. You don't want to mess with Harrison Ford."


Gosling, 36, was just two years old when the original Blade Runner was released. He first saw the movie when he was about 13.


"Being on the [Blade Runner 2049] set was surreal," he said. "It's so baked into my subconscious as a kid that in some way it had this strange feeling of coming home. But to be walking around in that universe, a universe that had such an influence over everything I had seen growing up was really surreal."


Blade Runner 2049 will be in theaters on Oct. 6.


Gosling, dressed casually in a hoodie and jeans, took to the stage at CinemaCon to introduce new footage from the movie, which included a snippet of Jared Leto as a villain and Robin Wright as another police officer.


CinemaCon is an annual convention for movie theater owners that kicked off last night and runs through Thursday.

CHRIS EVANS TALKS CANDID TO E! NEWS ABOUT 'GIFTED'

Chris Evans




E! NEWS -- Chris Evans' plan to be a dad one day isn't the only thing he revealed to E! News when we sat down with him last week to talk about his new movie Gifted.



Here are five more things we learned about the hunky actor that ya gotta know.



1. Young Love: Evans said he had at least three celebrity crushes when he was a kid. "Elisabeth Shue from Adventures of Babysitting and Karate Kid!...Lori Loughlin was a big one. Come on, who didn't love Lori Loughlin? She hasn't aged at all. Sandra Bullock was a big one too...like when I was like in seventh or eight grade."



2. Song & Dance: Evans not only knows how to tap dance (just ask any of his co-stars, who frequently comment on his awesome dancing skills), but he'd love to star in a musical. "I'm looking to find one," he said, adding, "I love Gene Kelly, he was great. Wouldn't it be great to do a [Gene Kelly] biopic or something like that?"



Or Guys & Dolls! "That would be great, too," Evans said. "I did that in high school."



3. Be Our Guest: Evans hasn't seen the new Beauty and the Beast yet, but he will. "I am a Disney buff," said Evans.



4. It's Elementary: Evans' favorite subject in school was math. "I probably didn't like English too much," he said. "I hate spelling and grammar." (He stars in Gifted as a boat mechanic who is raising his six-year-old math prodigy niece.)



5. Super Power: Evans' official reign as Captain America is set to end after the third and fourth Avengers movies. "After that my contract is done so it's out of my hands," he said. However, he may not be ready to put down that shield: "I have been doing this for so long, it's tough to think about not doing it. For almost a decade now there has always been one around the corner. I would be open to it. I love playing that guy."



Gifted is in theaters on April 12.

Reese Witherspoon




E! NEWS -- Reese Witherspoon rang in her 41st birthday on Wednesday, and her closest girlfriends made sure to turn the event into an extra special day.


E! News can confirm the actress celebrated with a group of friends, including Molly Sims and bestie Shannon Rotenberg, at the Hotel Bel Air.

CARRIE FISHER & DEBBIE REYNOLDS PUBLIC TRIBUTE

Debbie Reynolds




E! NEWS -- Todd Fisher is ready to celebrate his mother and sister's lives with their biggest admirers.

Close to one week before Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds will be remembered at a public tribute, one family member is sharing new details about what fans can expect.

According to Todd, this event is not just being done for close friends. Instead, it's being held for fans to celebrate two special lives.

"Because of Debbie and her connection to her fans and Carrie and her connection to her fans, we thought it was very important to create an event that would be able to give them all an outlet and a place to express," Todd shared with E! News exclusively. "I know that's what my mother would want and I know that's what Carrie would want."

"We created this forum so that everybody could participate, say their goodbyes and have some closure," he added.

According to a family source, guests will have the opportunity to see never-before-seen footage and photos of the Hollywood stars. Fans who receive a program will be able to read an interview featuring Debbie that was done just two weeks before her death.

E! News has also learned that close family friend James Blunt wrote a song about Carrie that will be played during a montage for the very first time.

"It's going to just be a very meaningful tribute to them and I think it's going to be more positive than anything else," Todd shared with us. "I think everybody will be on a major rollercoaster ride."

Carrie went into cardiac arrest while onboard an 11-hour flight from London to Los Angeles on December 23. She died four days later at the age of 60. Debbie passed away one day later at the age of 84 after suffering a stroke.

"She went to be with Carrie. In fact, those were the last words that she spoke this morning," Todd previously shared with E! News. "More specifically, she said that she really, she was under a lot of stress."

He continued, "She held it together beautifully, obviously, for the last couple of days but she was under a lot of emotion and stress from the loss [of Carrie] and it's pretty much what triggered this event."

The whole memorial service, scheduled for March 25 at 1 p.m. PST, is expected to be streamed live on DebbieReynolds.com.

KATY PERRY & ORLANDO BLOOM STILL TEXT & TALK

Katy Perry




E-NEWS -- Katy Perryand Orlando Bloom's break up is still chained to the read receipts.

Now a week after the couple announced their split, E! News has an exclusive update about where they stand as seemingly amicable exes.

A source tells us the Pirates of the Caribbean star is "cool" with the pop star, adding that they "still text and talk." These aren't just any 'ol friendly check-in texts—our insider reveals Katy and Orlando have also spent time with each other since ending their 10-month long relationship.

As for whether or not the lovebirds will ever reconcile romantically, the idea isn't completely far-fetched. The source shares, "He is just not ready for a serious relationship, but getting back together with Perry is not out of the question."

"He cares deeply for Perry and they have a very carefree dynamic with each other," the insider adds. "They are both free spirits."

One indication Katy and Orlando have nothing but love for each other? While the "Chained to the Rhythm" songstress was busy performing at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday, it's possible Bloom (who shares a 6-year-old son with ex Miranda Kerr) was watching after her beloved pooches.

The British actor shared a video to Instagram of Katy's dogs, though it's unclear if the playdate actually happened post-breakup.

Regardless, Perry herself has spoken out about pressing pause on the relationship, putting feud rumors to rest once and for all.

"How bout a new way of thinking for 2017," she tweeted. "U can still b friends & love ur former partners! No one's a victim or a villain, get a life y'all!"

KATE UPTON'S SPORTS ILLUSTRATED COVER MESSAGE

Kate Upton



E-NEWS -- Kate Upton has a message for young girls who see her on the cover of the 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

The model wears two skimpy bikinis and a barely-there monokini on three separate covers, marking the third time she has graced the cover of the annual publication.

"It means so much to set an example in body image even though through my life I have to figure it out for myself and I think that something that's very important for me to tell young girls is, 'You know, you don't have to aim to be like me but aim to be like yourself because what makes us different is what makes us, us,'" Upton told E! News exclusively.

Upton last graced the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue in 2013 and 2012. She said that she trained differently for her current covers, doing more weight training.

"It was all about being strong and being strong for my lifestyle, not for fitting in a certain dress size, and finding my perfect body for myself—'perfect' meaning, not actually perfect, but perfect that I can actually keep up with it and enjoy working out and eating healthy and then also really enjoy those cheat days!" she said, laughing.

Upton will later be taking part in fittings for a different type of outfit—a wedding dress! She and MLB star Justin Verlander got engaged in 2016. They have not set a wedding date and Upton told E! News they have also not started planning for the big day due to their busy schedules.

"I don't really know what kind of wedding we want yet," she added. "But it will definitely be unique to our relationship."

TAYLOR LAUTNER & BILLIE LOURD OFF SCREEN LOVERS

Taylor Lautner




E! NEWS -- Taylor Lautner and Billie Lourd play on-screen lovers on Scream Queens, but they've had everyone wondering about the status of their real-life relationship over the last few months.

Though they've never confirmed or denied romance rumors, they've been spotted kissing and hanging out in public. Not to mention, Lautner has stuck by Lourd's side following the devastating deaths of her mother, Carrie Fisher, and grandmother, Debbie Reynolds.

Now, E! News has learned the pair spent a romantic evening together on Monday night, cuddling close as they watched a private Kings Of Leon concert.


The show was held at the iHeart theater in Burbank, California, and lasted about an hour. A source tells E! News, the pair was "smiling and singing along" throughout the concert, "clapping and swaying back and forth."

Though our insider didn't see them kiss, we're told, "They were definitely googly-eyed looking at each other. On the way out, they held hands and were walking closely to one another. She put her head on his shoulder for a quick moment."

Though the couple didn't snap any photos, Bachelor alum (and Becca Tilley's boyfriend) Robert Graham got a pic with Lautner.

"Same but different - watching the kings tonight @kingsofleon," he captioned the pic with his arm around the actor. "Make sure you catch their @iheartradio show on @directv 2/15 9pm ET/PT #iHeartKOL."

Meanwhile, Lautner and Lourd first had romance rumors swirling in early December after theirScream Queens co-star Keke Palmer posted a photo of the two making out on Snapchat.

Lautner has also been a huge support for Lourd following the deaths of her mother and grandmother.

In fact, the day after her mother's death, Lautner took to Instagram to pen a touching message to Lourd. "This girl is one of the strongest, most fearless individuals I've ever met," he wrote. "Absolutely beautiful inside and out. I'm lucky to know you @praisethelourd."

In the days following both Fisher's and Reynolds' passing, Lautner was spotted spending more time with Lourd. He even accompanied her on a much-needed getaway to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, following the stars' funeral service earlier this month.

Friends or lovers or both, we're sure Lourd is certainly glad to have Lautner by her side throughout this trying time.

VIOLA DAVIS ON RED CARPET WITH E! @ SAG AWARDS

Viola Davis



E! NEWS -- Viola Davis revealed all at the 2017 SAG Awards. Davis, who is nominated for her work in Fences, didn't hold anything back when she and her husband Julius Tennon stopped to talk to E! News' Giuliana Rancic, from Jacuzzi parties with Octavia Spencer to her secret to surviving the red carpet.


"So far it's tame, my feet are OK," she said about her red carpet experience. "I sprayed a little thing on my toe to numb my pain. I got it online."


It's called Still Standing, she said, and "that's why I'm still standing." Davis opened her purse and showed off her other award show secrets: her slippers.


"If I had some prosecco in there it'd be perfect," she said.


Davis has made it no secret that she's a fan of prosecco and hitting the hot tub after a long day and she said her The Help costar and friend Spencer called her up to get in on that action.


"She called us at the last minute and was like ‘Girl, I need to get into the hot tub.' We said, ‘Yeah sure, come on over!'"


Davis is nominated for her work in Fences, she also received an Oscar nomination, her third time up for an Academy Awards. She said Fences has hit because it's relatable.


"I just feel like Fences is a story of my people, of my father, of my mother. And they were not people who invented anything. They are not people who will be in any history books, they were average everyday people who are just living their lives," she said. "I always say as an artist if you're breathing, your story deserves to be told. That's what August Wilson did…It's so universal. That's what I love about it."


Davis is known for her award show speeches, but there's nothing planned for tonight.


"I showed you my purse," she said. "I've got still standing…I've got nothing. I'm not saving the world tonight. I'm drinking."

CIARA IS SUFFERING PREGNANCY SIDE EFFECTS

Ciara



E! NEWS -- Ciara may not feel 100 percent great as she deals with pregnancy side effects, but she is feeling the love from husband Russell Wilson.


The 31-year-old R&B singer and the 28-year-old Seattle Seahawks quarterback announced in October they are expecting their first child together. They wed at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England more than three months prior. Ciara has a 2-year-old son, Future Zahir, with ex Future.


"Ciara is feeling good. She is tired though. She has not been working as much really, just relaxing around the house and taking this time to spend with baby Future and Russell when he is home," a source told E! News exclusively Friday. "She loves to cook and decorate for the holidays."


"Russell is really the best husband," the source said. "He always makes Ciara feel perfect even if she is not feeling it herself. Every day they get even more in love."


Ciara and Wilson have not revealed the sex of their child, or any other details about their upcoming arrival.


She stirred much speculation Wednesday when she posted on Instagram a photo of a pair of custom baby Nike sneakers in Seahawks colors—neon green, silver and navy blue—that her husband designed, saying, "What In The Cuteness Are These?!?!.... Our New Little Ones 1st Pair Of Shoes Designed By Their Daddy."

LAMAR ODOM CHECKS INTO SAN DIEGO REHAB

Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian




Lamar Odom is ready to get some professional help.

E! News can confirm the former Los Angeles Lakers player recently admitted himself into rehab in San Diego, Calif.

"It was his own decision. He wanted to work on his mental and physical health for the next chapter of his life," a source shared with E! News. "He has not fallen off the wagon, but he understands the importance of maintaining his sobriety."

The decision comes more than a year after the former NBA player experienced a near-fatal overdose in Las Vegas.


Back in October 2015, Lamar became unconscious at a brothel in Crystal, Nev. An ambulance took him to a nearby hospital where doctors found a cocktail of drugs in his system.

While Khloe Kardashian recalled the moment when she was told he only had four hours to live, Lamar defied friends, family and doctor's expectations and was able to move to a private rehabilitation center closer to Calabasas.

While the athlete experienced some setbacks during his recovery including reports of being homeless, sources previously told E! News that he was focused on living a healthier life.

"Lamar's not homeless. He has a nice place in California," a source previously shared with us. "He is doing well. He is determined to stay on the straight and narrow [path] and wants to be the best father he can possibly be and he is doing the work required to achieve that."

Our source added, "It is not easy, but he is focused and determined."

Lamar's rep could not be reached for comment regarding rehab news. The athlete was last spotted shopping in Beverly Hills on December 6.

KATE GOSSELIN ON GOOD MORNING AMERICA


Kate Gosselin





E! NEWS -- Kate Gosselin and Jon Gosselin still can't find themselves on the same page.


The mother-of-eight spoke out on Good Morning America in a pre-taped interview that aired on Monday morning. She opened up about her son, Colin, who has moved out of the house to take part in a special program that teaches him how to deal with his "educational and social challenges." In the interview, she denied Jon's claims that she had left him in the dark regarding the situation.


"We're both court-ordered not the speak about the care and custody of our children in detail," she told host Amy Robach on GMA. "I have known all along where he is. The world doesn't know. And, I'll leave it at that."


Kate—who has full legal custody of twins Cara Gosselin and Mady Gosselin, 16, and sextuplets Colin, Aaden Gosselin, Alexis Gosselinand Hannah Gosselin, Joel Gosselin and Leah Gosselin, 12—is also unfazed by any plans Jon has to take her back to court for custody.


"I've lost track how many times he has said that," she said, point-blank. "I'm really focused less on what he has to say."


However, Jon's attorney Kristen Doleva-Lecher spoke to E! News exclusively and said Kate isn't telling the whole truth.


"There is a court order and Jon is strictly abiding by it. The public doesn't know the whole story," she explained. "Jon is absolutely hurt by statements made about Colin and Jon's role as his father. I can assure you that Jon is very concerned about all of his children. He is a loving father and he is acting in accordance with the law to do what's right for the kids."


Meanwhile, Kate also spoke to People magazine about her son's treatment. 


"This is all new to me, and to our family," she said of Colin living away from home. "I don't know what the road ahead entails, but I'm very happy with the care that he's getting, and am still completely comforted by the fact that he is so clearly exactly where he needs to be, getting precisely what he needs — it comforts me as a mother, because when you, as a mom, can't give your kids what they need, it is a huge comfort to find people who can."


Despite missing Colin at home, Kate says, "He's where he needs to be right now, and I can feel good about that."

ADAM LEVINE & BEHATI PRINSLOO'S LITTLE GIRL

Behati Prinsloo And Adam Levine



This may not be too surprising, but Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo's baby girl is beautiful.

E! News previously reported that the celeb couple welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Dusty Rose Levine, and now we find out a few more intimate details about the lovebirds' bundle of joy—including which famous parent the little one resembles most.

"Adam was in the delivery room holding Behati's hands. They both cried when she was born. Both families are there now," a source tells E! News. "She is beautiful. She looks like Behati."


Aw, a model baby! What a lucky guy Adam is. The insider adds, "They are both speechless on how this moment feels as new parents. Dusty is healthy, sweet and happy baby!"

The pair first announced their pregnancy in March, and just a month later, E! News confirmed they were expecting a little girl. "She knows what she's having and she's very excited," a source told us at the time.

The next week, E! News' Sibley Scoles caught up with The Voicecoach to chat about the happy news in person. "It's awesome. I'm going to be a dad. S--t, I'm excited," Levine said. "I'm going to be a f--king dad. I'm going to spoil [Behati]."

We bet he's going to spoil both of his beauties. Congrats again to the happy couple!

MIRANDA KERR & SNAPCHAT'S EVAN SPIEGEL ENGAGED

Miranda Kerr



E! NEWS -- Miranda Kerr and Evan Spiegel are ready for the most important merger of their lives.


The Victoria's Secret Angel turned beauty mogul and the billionaire co-founder of Snapchat are engaged, Spiegel popping the question and Kerr sharing the happy news via—what else—social media this morning.


"I said yes!!!" the 33-year-old model captioned a pic of her new sparkling diamond ring, overlaid with a bitmoji proposal and a "Marry Me!" graphic.


Ah, 21st-century romance…


This devoted couple, who met in 2014 and started dating in June 2015, may not have been an obvious one on paper, but sources have told E! News since the beginning that Kerr and Spiegel bonded fast and looked entirely comfortable together from the start.



Last summer Kerr brought Spiegel to a VIP party and happily introduced him to her friends. Neither was shy about packing on the PDA in front of the small A-list crowd, either.


"They felt very happy and at ease," said one of the attendees at the time. "Everyone very quickly got the message, they both seem smitten."


And while you might think Spiegel is all tech, all the time, he's most particular about aesthetics (he told GQ that he's into flower arranging, particularly English garden roses) and style (James Perse white V-necks, Patrik Ervell black jeans and white Achilles Common Projects sneakers are among his go-tos).


Let's see, we wonder if Kerr is much into style…


"They've fallen hard for each other and are really in love," an insider told E! News just months into their relationship.


This will be the first marriage for Spiegel, 26, and the second for Kerr, 33, who's mom to 5-year-old son Flynn with ex-husband Orlando Bloom.


Not long after she and Bloom split up in 2013, she was briefly linked to Australian business tycoon James Packer (Mariah Carey's soon-to-be husband), and she even ended up sharing headlines, if not an actual relationship, with Justin Bieber.



"James and I are friends, but people want to make a story, the public want to put me with someone," Kerr told Vogue in August 2014, hoping to clear the air. "I know the truth, I am single, and the people that are important to me know the truth and that is all."


But then she met Spiegel and, though it took a while for them to actually get together, she would be single no more after that.


And Spiegel's lack of any sort of public romantic history probably appealed to Kerr. In fact, according to a Spiegel source, it was his decidedly non-Hollywood vibe that attracted Kerr to him in the first place.


"Miranda loves how down to earth and brilliantly smart Evan is," the source said. "They have incredible conversations and can talk about anything. He comes from a wonderful close-knit and loving family and that was a real draw to her."


Spiegel was born in Los Angeles to lawyer parents; went to high school at Crossroads, an exclusive haven for the well-heeled and super-smart; and then attended Stanford, though he dropped out before graduation to focus on Snapchat. The photo and video-sharing app that specializes in fleeting moments was most recently reported to be worth about $20 billion.


Spiegel himself is said to be worth $2.1 billion, according to Forbes. Source of wealth? "Self made."


But money hasn't messed with his personality, according to those close to him.



"He's just so nice, very normal," one insider said. "You would never know about his money. He is really down to earth."


Kerr, who hails from Australia, met and spent time with Spiegel's family early on, feeling "very welcomed and accepted," a source said.


Even more importantly, Spiegel gets on equally well with Kerr's son.


"Evan is really great with Flynn and they bonded instantly," the source said. "Evan gets down on the floor and plays with Flynn and is very fun and creative. That's so important to Miranda and a quality that really stands out about Evan."


Spiegel may be down to earth and happy to get down on the floor to play, but you bet that he and Kerr still enjoy the spoils of their hard work, whether they're cuddling on the beach in Corsica or hitting Clive Davis' pre-Grammys party in L.A.—which served as their red carpet debut as a couple in February.


And since both have been based in Southern California, they were logistically able to spend lots of time together—not a small feat in their respective businesses.


"They hang out all over the Westside and love being close to the beach," says a source, who noted that they enjoy local, normal activities such as shopping at the Palisades Farmers Market, going to the Malibu Pier and having dinner on trendy Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice. "They also love spending quiet weekends together at home hanging out and ordering takeout or watching movies."


All signs pointed early on to their relationship going the distance—and that's exactly what has happened. "Things are moving quickly and getting very serious. He's crazy about her and thinks she's the most kind-hearted, beautiful girl in the world," the source adds.


While we wouldn't call Spiegel and Kerr a simple couple in any way, they prove that when it works, it just works. Simple as that.

TAYLOR SWIFT & TOM HIDDLESTON TALKING KIDS

Taylor Swift



Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston's relationship appears to be moving forward even faster than originally thought.

Less than a month after they made their romance public, the 26-year-old pop star sees the 35-year-old Thor actor as husband material and the two have also talked about their desire to have kids one day, a source told E! News exclusively Sunday.

"This is the kind of a man she would want to marry," the source said. "She has said he would make a great dad. They have talked about what they want in the future and kids are something that they would both like down the line. They have very real and serious conversations about life."

Swift, the source added, likes Hiddleston's "English ways."

"She has told me that she loves his accent and thinks he is so sexy," the source said. "He acts very English. He is also a big tea drinker."

The two made their romance public, without previous rumors, when they were photographed kissing near her Rhode Island beach house in mid-June. Less than two weeks later, they hung out with each other's parents in Nashville and England. The jet-setting couple then flew back to Rhode Island for Swift's star-studded Fourth of July party, where they packed on the PDA again.

Earlier this week, they traveled to Australia, where Hiddleston is filming Thor: Ragnarok, the third movie in the series, in which he reprises his role as Loki. The lovebirds were spotted looking cozy again Sunday, walking hand-in-hand en route to a dinner date. Swift wore a plunging Swift wore a plunging black and white floral high-low wrap dress, while Hiddleston sported a black shirt with the sleeves rolled above his elbows, matching pants and gray shoes.


Another source told E! News Swift "loves traveling with Tom," who "makes her feel so safe."

"They are the real deal," the source said. "They laugh and travel well together. These past few weeks, they have learned many things about each other...she is getting very attached."

"Tom gives Tay more attention than any other man she has ever been with," the source added. "She likes his maturity. He...is a very romantic and charming gentleman."

An insider had told E! News after Swift's Fourth of July party the singer's "squad" of female friends "all really like Tom and like how he treats Taylor" and that while "things are moving fast between them," her friends are not worried "because they never have seen her this happy."

"Tay can't stop talking about Tom," the second source told E! News Sunday. "It's an ongoing conversation with the girls on how happy she is. Tay has mentioned numerous times how 'in love' with each other they are."

During their time in Australia, the two have been staying in a top suite at a 5-star hotel and have enjoyed walking around the beach together, despite the chilly weather, as it is winter in the country. Hiddleston was also spotted jogging on the shore Saturday, without Swift.

"They have been very kind to the staff at the hotel," a third source told E! News. "It looked like they had a little down time together and have walked out together a few times since they have checked in. Tom is very active and wakes up early for workouts and runs on the beach."

BEYONCE ON WHY 'LEMONADE' GIVES US ALL HOPE

Beyonce



E! NEWS -- Two years ago it didn't look like Beyoncé and Jay Z were going to make it to their next wedding anniversary. Their marriage was at breaking point and they were barely talking. The couple was forced to make a choice: save the relationship or live separate lives.


"They had been having problems for years," reveals a source close to the couple. "There was a constant commitment issue between them and in the end they were barely speaking. Beyoncé didn't fully trust Jay and it was hard for her to get past that."


And so began an intense period of reflection for the couple, continues the insider. "They went to a lot of counseling and have been working on their issues ever since. They had help to get them through it."


With the release of Lemonade, Beyoncé seems to have finally faced the martial strife rumors, which have plagued them for years. And in the process, solved the mystery of what really happened in the elevator showdown between her sister, Solange, and her husband back in 2014. In the full three-minute video later leaked to the public, a bodyguard has to physically restrain Solange as she tries to repeatedly punch and kick Jay Z.


At the time it was widely reported Jay Z's close friendship with designer Rachel Roy was the cause of the violence. In a bid to calm down the media frenzy that ensued, Beyoncé and Jay Z released a rare public statement in which they admitted, "...families have problems and we're no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We've put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same."


And we did, until Beyoncé introduced the world to Lemonade (cue "Becky with the good hair" lyric, Roy's knee-jerk reaction, and lemon and bee emojis being used as grenades as they are thrown around social media platforms). Admits the insider: "It's true, Rachel and Jay were friends and it wasn't seen as appropriate by people who knew them."


Why get involved at all? "Rachel Roy wanted to defend herself after watching Beyoncé's Lemonade," a source close to Roy reveals, noting that her Instagram post was an "immediate reaction" to the singer's visual album. Meanwhile, another insider adds, "Bey will never mention any names, but the people who those songs are about know."


Roy has since addressed Beyoncé's "Sorry" directly, telling E! News in a statement, "I want to put the speculation and rumors to rest. My Instagram post was meant to be fun and lighthearted, it was misunderstood as something other than that. There is no validity to the idea that the song references me personally. There is no truth to the rumors. Consequently, online haters have targeted me and my daughters in a hurtful and scary manner, including physical threats. As a mother—and I know many mothers would agree—I feel that bullying in any form is harmful and unacceptable. I would hope that the media sees the real issue here—the issue of cyber bullying—and how it should not be tolerated by anyone."


For Beyoncé, though, that elevator moment was a tipping point: "The fact everything became so public, it was embarrassing, and the first time she had to really deal with some of the questions people were asking about her marriage. It changed things. It was a pivotal moment."


Now, after a lot of hard work, things have definitely improved between them. "They are both fully committed. They are over the worst. It's been a long and hard process but they are in a much better place now." But, according to another insider, their marriage will never be the same. "They have love for each other and always will, but...they have their ups and downs."


Out of the pain came Beyoncé's masterpiece, Lemonade. It was a project that ran the risk of becoming a break up album. But, it managed to transition into so much more and in the end told a story of love and hope. Of betrayal and sorrow, of trusting your instincts and denial. Sprinkled throughout is a generous measure of gut-wrenching devotion and enduring love proving it's possible to weave the pieces of a broken heart back together again.


Jay Z has been fully on board with how Beyoncé has chosen to deal with her hurt. "He is fully supportive. He understands the reasoning. This is part of the process of being transparent. And they have healed. He has been very humble about the experience. Beyoncé is the love of his life and he will do what it takes." Another insider adds, "Jay was involved in the creation of Lemonade and knew every song Bey was going to release. He knew the lyrics; he knew the implications. He had to approve the songs before release. Jay is a very smart businessman...Bottom line is that they are both really smart and they both saw dollar signs."


According to another source, "Beyoncé is amazed on how everything turned out. She worked day and night on this. She celebrated with family; Jay was by her side. When Beyoncé put this album together she was aware of the message she was sending out. She knew that people were going to dissect each word. Beyoncé wanted to connect with women's emotions with this album." As for the cheating implications, the source says, "Jay is all about self expression, so he gets it. Beyoncé shares music before it's released with Jay so he can listen and share his thoughts. When it comes to music, they are very in it together and supportive of each other's craft."


Beyoncé rarely gives interviews anymore. She doesn't do the talk show circuit or turn up to every celebrity event she is invited to. She isn't transparent on social media with long rants on twitter or hourly snap chats. Beyoncé is a rarity. So when she speaks, we listen. And this week she bared her soul. Lemonade became her pulpit.


Ultimately, her new album is better than an Oprah Winfrey one-on-one or a Vanity Fair cover. This is as close to her personal diary as it gets. And by making the brave choice to release it, to open up about a personal life she has tried so hard to protect for so many years, she is forcing us to have a conversation about our own world.


She's using her heartbreak and disappointment to empower black women, to highlight gender inequality and to show everyone that love is a place you can both lose yourself and find yourself all at the same time. And that's OK because Lemonade gives us hope.


Even fairy tale celebrity marriages aren't perfect. And Beyoncé Knowles Carter, as she calls herself in the end credits, is proving she can make lemonade out of the public rumors and her private struggles.


For Beyoncé and Jay Z, now the project is over and she's starting her tour, this is a time to start afresh. "They are going to be OK. This is round two," says a friend. "They are determined to make it work and we all believe they can do it."
