Jennifer Garner Celebrates Birthday With Friends in the Wake of Divorce
Chris Brown has been accused of sucker punching a photographer in a Tampa nightclub after a disagreement over some pictures. The incident allegedly took place in the early hours of Monday morning, after Chris arrived at the club for a paid appearance and the in-house photographer attempted to take pics of him and his entourage. Things escalated when Chris told the photographer to stop taking photos, but later spotted him taking more while he was manning the DJ booth. In a video since posted online, a person identified as Chris appears to throw a punch at an unseen person in a dark corner of the club. The alleged victim says he will be pressing charges against Chris.
In her upcoming memoir The Secrets of My Life, Caitlyn Jenner reportedly reveals that she doesn't plan on having sex with women again and may be open to sleeping with men. She writes, "Of the most important things in my life, sex is beyond the bottom; it has been that way for a long time." She continues, writing, "A future female companion? Yes, I do think about that. A future female sex companion? Not happening, at least for now, and perhaps not ever." The 67-year-old Olympic gold medalist goes on to say that she "never had the inclination" to have sex with men, but she has since considered the idea. "Maybe that attitude might possibly change if I have the final surgery," she writes. "Maybe removing the last physical appendage of my maleness... will make me feel differently."
Think you and your ex are on good terms? Jennifer Lopez and her new boyfriend Alex Rodriguez were spotted dancing with the singer's ex-husband Marc Anthony in the Dominican Republic over the weekend. A fan posted a video of the trio grooving to Latin music inside a nightclub. Prior to that, J-Lo and Anthony performed a sold-out concert together at Altos de Chavón Amphitheater at Casa de Campo Resort and Villas. They are also recording a Spanish album together.
Janet Jackson's estranged husband Wissam Al Mana has penned an emotional message to the singer and posted it on his website. It reads: "To the most beautiful person in the world, thank you for your divine love, your eternal support and for being my best friend," he recently wrote on his website. "I love you so much, inshallah we will be together in the Great Forever x." The public declaration comes in the wake of the couple announcing their divorce just three months after welcoming a baby boy named Eissa.
Justin Bieber won’t face charges after being accused of head-butting a party-crasher during at pre-Grammy party at Serafina Sunset in February. My source tells me the case was dropped after Justin’s lawyers refused to let the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department have a sit down with him, and when the alleged victim went radio silent. A man previously claimed that Justin struck him in the face for recording video of him play fighting with Kyle Massey.
Drizzy's in a tizzy! On Sunday night, Drake took to Instagram to slam the country club he stayed at this weekend while performing a surprise set at Coachella, accusing the venue of racial profiling. He wrote: "The most offensive place I have ever stayed at in my life with staff who pick and choose who they are going to accommodate based on racial profiling #Coachella" Both People and Us Weekly report that The Madison Club hasn't commented on the post, although some Drake fans have suggested on social media that the club must have privately apologized to the rapper, since he's already taken down the post. Others are trolling The Madison Club on Facebook with posts like, "If you're reading this it's too late. Should've taken care of my boy, Drake."
According to a newly unsealed affidavit, a doctor who saw Prince shortly before his death prescribed him oxycodone in a friend’s name to protect the pop star’s privacy. Dr. Michael Todd Schulenberg put Prince’s prescription in the name of Kirk Johnson, a long-time friend of the artist. The doctor last saw Prince on April 20, a day before he was found unresponsive in an elevator in his Paisley Park compound in suburban Minneapolis. An autopsy revealed that he died of a fentanyl overdose, but while plenty of opioids were reportedly found in Prince's home by authorities, it's unknown how he obtained the lethal dose of fentanyl. It's also unclear whether criminal charges will be pursued against the doctor or anyone else.
Prince Harry is bringing Meghan Markle as his date to Pippa Middleton’s wedding. The pair will attend the festivities at St. Mark's Church Englefield in Berkshire, England, on May 20. The ceremony will be followed by a reception held at Pippa's family home in Buckleberry. This won't be the first time that Harry and Meghan have attended a big event together; Harry brought Meghan to his best friend Tom Inskip's wedding in Jamaica. The couple, who have been dating for almost a year, most recently celebrated Easter weekend together in Toronto.
In related news, in a new interview, Prince Harry reveals that he came “very close to a complete breakdown on numerous occasions” following his mother’s death in a car accident in 1997. He even took up boxing to channel his rage, but was eventually coaxed into counseling by his brother, Prince William. Since then, the two princes have been steadfast advocates for mental health causes.
Harry says, "I started to have a few conversations and then, all of a sudden, all of this grief that I'd never processed came to the forefront. I was like, 'there's actually a lot of stuff here I need to deal with.'"
The royal entered therapy after two years of “total chaos” in his twenties, he explains.
Prince Harry also discussed the future, saying: “I, of course, I would love to have kids.”
Hours after attending Easter church service with soon-to-be-ex husband Ben Affleck and their three children, Jennifer Garner’s friends threw her an epic birthday bash at Little Beach House in Malibu Sunday. Twenty girlfriends showed up, including Reese Witherspoon. The timing for a ladies’ night was good: Jennifer and Ben filed for divorce last week. "Jen looked so happy to be surrounded by the people closest to her. She had the best evening and was so gracious. She gave a little speech and thanked everyone for coming. Everyone went out of their way to make Jen feel special and be there for her." The couple remains united even in divorce, as evidenced by their Easter outing earlier in the day.
