Justin Bieber posted a picture of a sonogram on Instagram yesterday, and while a lot of people figured it was an April Fools Day prank, some fans fell for it, especially because of the extent of the prank. After posting that picture, Justin then posted a picture of Hailey possibly getting an ultrasound, with the caption, “If U thought it was April fools.” But then, Justin posted another sonogram using a dog instead of a baby, writing, "Wait omg is that a,,, APRIL FOOLS." Fans scolded Justin for his prank, many pointing out that there are a number of women who have suffered a miscarriage, can't conceive, or have lost a child. 

The Jonas Brothers played their own April Fools Day joke on Instagram. Referencing the egg that beat Kylie Jenner’s record for the most followed “person” on Instagram. They tweeted, “Can’t wait for you guys to hear our new song featuring @world_record_egg!! #egggan." Not exactly the funniest joke, but at least they played it safe. Justin Bieber should take a cue from the Jonas Brothers over how to play a practical joke. 

When Issa Rae was featured on the cover of the April issue of “Essence,” everyone had questions about the diamond on her finger. Though Issa hadn't said anything about it, her “Insecure” co-stars Jay Ellis and Yvonne Orji say she is. Jay said to “Entertainment Tonight,” “We all found out in different ways because we’re all on different text chains. We talk at different times, so we all found out at different times in different ways.” Though her co-stars may have dished the dirt, don't expect her to confirm. Last year, Issa told Marie Claire, “The one thing I don’t need feedback on is who I’m sleeping with.”

Chrissy Teigen is getting very comfortable with her post-baby weight. She posted a response to a fan's question, writing, "'how do you eat like this??' - basically I am 20 pounds heavier than I was before [having my son] miles. he's 10 months old, I never lost the last bit because I just love food too much. Just coming to terms with my new normal, when I had this certain number for so long!" She also noted, "the thinnest I've ever been was right after [my daughter]Luna. Postpartum depression. I'LL TAKE THESE POUNDS AND THIS FEELING!" I love that she doesn't conform to other people's perception of perfection.  Being the you that makes you happy IS perfect!

It's a  "Teen Mom OG" mic drop for Bristol Palin. After just one season on the show, Bristol said on Monday, “Teen Mom OG wasn’t a fit for me, it took away my peace… and honestly — my peace has a price tag that no one but God can afford.” She added to her Instagram post, “$ doesn’t impress me, I don’t entertain bs, and walking away from this show allows God to rebuild me (and my little fam) in the right direction. I have love for all the girls on the show, and wish them the best of luck in all their future endeavors!!” In the past, Bristol had complained quite loudly about how the show portrayed her through "inaccuracies and false narratives.”

Magician David Blaine is being accused by two women of assault. The woman say they were assaulted by David more than 20 years ago – one in 1997 and one in 1998. One woman claims David hypnotized her into performing sexual acts after meeting him through a friend and going to his apartment. The other accuser says that she was also sexually assaulted in his apartment. The New York Police Department is investigating the claims, but the statute of limitations means David probably wouldn't be charged. You may also recall in 2004, a woman named Natasha Prince went to police in London claiming David assaulted her, but he denied the claims and ultimately, she declined to proceed further.

Khloé Kardashian has finally spoken out about "The Good Place" star Jameela Jamil’s comments against her for promoting a weight loss drink fad. She said in an interview with the New York Times that she has never had a personal chef and she also posts her workouts online for people who can’t afford a personal trainer like she can. Jameela has also vented about Kim Kardashian, who has promoted diet lollipops in the past, and now Kim is saying her piece through the interview. Kim insisted that the family only backs products that they actually use. As for the reason for doing it in the first place, Kim added, “If there is work that is really easy that doesn’t take away from our kids, that’s, like, a huge priority. If someone was faced with the same job opportunities, I think they would maybe consider." She also pointed out, “You’re going to get backlash for almost everything so as long as you like it or believe in it or it’s worth it financially, whatever your decision may be, as long as you’re okay with that.”

One of "Inside Edition" host Deborah Norville’s fans saved her life. Deborah said, “We live in a world of see something, say something, and I’m really glad we do. When you work on television, viewers comment on everything - your hair, your makeup, the dress you’re wearing. And a long time ago, an 'Inside Edition' viewer reached out to say she’d seen something on my neck. It was a lump. Well, I’d never noticed the thing, but I did have it checked out and the doctor said it was nothing, a thyroid nodule.” But then, fate took a turn for the worse. She added, “For years, it was nothing. Until recently, it was something. The doctor says it’s a very localized form of cancer, which tomorrow, I’ll have surgery to have remove. There will be no chemo, I’m told no radiation; but I will have surgery and I’ll be away for a bit, so Diane will be holding down the fort.”

The Rolling Stones were supposed to start their big tour this past weekend but have had to postpone it due to Mick Jagger’s health.

"Modern Family" star Ed O’Neill's daughter, Sophia, is distraught after he kissed her crush. Ed was on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Monday, and he told Ellen about kissing his daughter’s celebrity crush, Dylan O’Brien from "Maze Runner" fame and "American Assassins." Ed said, “I did a show for Jordan Peele....I was working with Dylan O’Brien, who’s a young, handsome actor, who my daughter has a slight crush on. And in the story, we kiss. And she had to witness this, and was very upset that it was me and not her.” Ellen said, “Wow, what are the odds of, like, an actor you have a crush on kisses your dad?” Ed said, “Very unlikely,” but he did add that Dylan is a "really good kisser.” I think it's time for Sophia to find a new crush.
