Elton John has come to the defense of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, telling the press they need to back off. The royal couple went to Ibiza last week, and then to Nice, France, and the press is calling them hypocrites for taking private jets. On top of that, they were raising eyebrows over the cost of the personal trips. But, Elton John, who was a close friend of Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana, said he offered up his home for their stay in Nice and provided them with a “carbon neutral” private jet flight.

Justin and Hailey Bieber are really close to setting the date for their wedding celebration. According to TMZ, the big reception will happen next month. Sources say they’re looking at a date in September, which would make sense since they got married September 13 at an NYC courthouse last year. So, if that’s the case, it would be a celebration and anniversary party all at once. From what we hear, the exact date hasn’t been set, but they plan to send out invites in about a week.

After six years of hiding their relationship, Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes have…. apparently called it quits. The two allegedly started dating in 2013, about a year after she divorced Tom Cruise. Although they never publicly acknowledged, it was probably the worst kept secret in Hollywood. But recently, Jamie was spotted out and about with Sela Vave, his newest artist, and rumors that he was cheating on Katie started circling. But someone overhead Katie talking with a friend who brought up the story to her, and they say her exact words were, “What Jamie does is his business – we haven’t been together for months.” What’s interesting is that after years of keeping their relationship a secret, they finally appeared together in public for the first time at a pre-GRAMMY Gala in 2018. They were seen in public a few times since, but it wasn't considered "official" until their first red carpet appearance at the Met Gala this past May. And, according to another one of Katie’s friends, the two spilt shortly after. Read more with page Six.

Tori Spelling’s “BH90210” earnings were revealed, and we were shocked to hear she’s making $85,000 per episode. But we’re not the only ones who took notice. According to Radar Online, American Express Bank wants their $88,000 that Tori owes them. You might remember they sued Tori back in 2016 for failing to pay her credit card bills. She was original ordered to pay over $86,000 that year, and since she hasn’t, that amount has climbed to $88,000. Now the bank wants the judge to order her to pay up, given that she now has a source of income.

50 Cent isn’t a fan of Wendy Williams, considering she bashed him on her show, and that’s why she wasn’t invited to his pool party this weekend, according to TMZ. 50 posted an Instagram video and captioned it, “You can’t just show up to my PARTY if you been talking about me. B***H wait outside.” But, security didn’t get the memo, and she showed up anyway. Why? Apparently, her son, Kevin Jr., is a huge Snoop Dogg fan, Snoop was at the party, and KJ wanted to get a picture with him for his 19th birthday. Wendy and her son got the pic and hung out with Snoop for about 20 minutes. She apparently didn’t even know she was banned from the shindig until the party was over.

Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus have finally been dethroned after a record-setting 19 weeks at #1. After spending nine weeks at number two, Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy” takes over the top spot on the “Billboard” Hot 100. “Bad Guy” now holds the record for the most weeks at number two before finally taking over the number one position. Now coming in at number two this week is Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s “Senorita,” followed by “Old Town Road" at three, Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts” at four and Khalid’s “Talk” at five. But, just like Mariah Carey was a good sport when Lil Nas X broke her record, Lil Nas X has done the same for Billy. Both Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus took to social media to congratulate Billie Eilish. Lil Nas X tweeted, “U deserve this!," while Billy Ray added, "@billieeilish Well deserved. Your persistence paid off. Thanks everybody. It was a hell of a ride."

Ed Sheeran is doing what he can to help the local charity shop in his hometown of Framlingham, England. The Sun reports that Ed has donated 300 items to the St. Elizabeth Hospice charity shop (kind of like Good Will), including a signed tour hoodie, a signed surfboard, a personalized ice hockey shirt, a signed David Beckham football shirt, and even a bottle of his personalized ketchup, and tons more stuff. To get people through the door, the store placed a life-sized cardboard cutout of Ed outside, which fans have been posing with. In the meantime, there are other Ed Sheeran items on exhibition starting today in his hometown, including his report card. Not that it’s impressive – Ed’s music teachers at college didn’t think he had what it takes to make it in the music world. During his time there, Ed got six “F” grades in classes like songcraft, professional musicianship, music industry prep and style development, according to the Daily Mail. Just one year later though, he had his first big hit with “The A Team.” So in Ed’s case, “F” must be for fantastic!

The cast of “Boy Meets World” reunited over the weekend for Fan Expo Boston. What’s super cool is that this is the first time William Daniels has been with the cast for a reunion since the attempted robbery at his home last year. Will Friedle posted a picture of the group including Rider Strong, Danielle Fishel, Ben Savage, and William Daniels, Mr. Feeny himself. Considering William is 93-years-old, we’re impressed he had the energy to attend the show. We are also surprised Danielle made it since she recently brought home her newborn from the NICU. Danielle posted a pic on her account too, and wrote, “Dream. Try. Do cons.”

Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox make a very attractive couple, but it took a lot of convincing from Megan for them to even get together, according to Us Weekly. The two, who have been married for almost 10 years, first met on an episode of “Hope and Faith.” Though Briand admitted she was super-hot, their more than 10-year difference was a problem for him. Brian said, “She was really young, and I was like,’ This can’t happen, no way.’ But Megan was persistent, and they officially started dating back in 2004, got engaged by 2006, and finally married in 2010. Now three kids and an almost-divorce later, they’re still together.

“Look, don’t touch” doesn’t apply to Shawn Mendes, at least at Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Berlin where fans are allowed to hold the hand of Shawn’s new wax replica. Not only that, they can even lay down beside him, since the figure is posed on the floor and looking up at the ceiling. And, according to People, the figure is placed so it has an “outer glow” around it, making for a perfect no-filter-needed photo.

Chrissy Teigen went back to her home state of Utah for a wedding this weekend, but apparently, the state wasn’t as welcoming as she would have hoped. On Saturday, Chrissy posted a photo of her swollen lips and wrote on social media, “did u know angioedema can be triggered from altitude sickness? learn something new every day! my lip about to explode. goodbye world.” She described it as, “It’s so big it’s shiny and hard like glass.” She also called out the bride and groom for her condition, captioning a video of herself “this is premeditated murder if you ask me,” saying, “Luke, Meghan, why have you chosen to get married in a place…. that would try to destroy me?” Or at least that’s what we think she was saying – it’s hard to tell since the antihistamines don’t seem to have kicked in just yet.
