Break-up’s….
First, the stars of season 23 of "The Bachelor" Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph have split after about two years of dating. Colton had COVID-19 back in March, and Cassie was with him throughout his quarantine, but after, he went back to his hometown in Colorado, leaving her family's home in Huntington Beach, California. A source told People that it "happened recently" since the two "just weren't on the same page,” adding, "Ultimately, Colton and Cassie Colton really wanted to settle down and get married - he's been ready for a long time. And Cassie just wasn't ready. They both knew it wasn't going to work."

Second, Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich are splitting after nearly three years of marriage, according to People magazine. They said in a statement, “We have lovingly and carefully taken the time we have needed to arrive at our decision to separate. We share an abundance of love and respect for one another and will continue to lead with our hearts from that place. We kindly request your compassion and respect for our privacy moving forward.” We kind of saw this coming as the two have spent the majority of the pandemic apart from each other, with Julianne in L.A. and Brooks in Idaho.

Third, it’s clear “This Is Us" star Justin Hartley is done with his marriage as he’s said to be dating his former "The Young and the Restless" co-star Sofie Pernas while he’s going through his divorce from Chrishell Stause. The two were spotted kissing after she dropped him off at an appointment. Justin and Sofia met on "The Young and the Restless" in 2015 when she played Marisa Sierras on the show.

And finally, “Sweet Home Alabama” star Josh Lucas’ ex-wife, Jessica Ciencin Henriquez, has accused him of cheating in quarantine after they supposedly reconciled. The two, who married in March 2012, have been on and off since she filed for divorce in January 2014. They share seven-year-old Noah. Apparently Jessica thought she and Josh had reconciled, but it turns out he didn’t feel the same way. When she found out what was going on, she tweeted a picture of a statement with the caption, “Exes are exes for a reason.” The statement read, “Having a child with someone makes you want to forgive them more than you normally would, it makes you believe they are better than they are, but it takes a really s–t human to cheat on their partner (correction: now ex-partner) in the middle of a pandemic. Thank you for reminding me why I left you in the first place. I deserve better than this. Our son deserves better than this.” Jessica finished off with, “And yes, I am airing this publicly because there are a lot of women accepting much less than they deserve because there are kids in the picture.” Josh hasn’t commented, and sources close to him claim that they hadn’t gotten back together.

AceShowbiz reports Tyler Perry has told fans who are protesting across the U.S. to "stop the violence" and return home after the violence and destruction protesters have caused following the death of George Floyd. Tyler said, "Please, please stop this violence!! Looting is NOT THE ANSWER!!!! John Boyega, Cardi B, Ciara, Janelle Monae, Lady GaGa, and Billie Eilish are among the stars speaking out against the killing of George Floyd and racism across the U.S. TMZ reports that several stars took part in the protests over the weekend, including John Cusack, Porsha Williams, Nick Cannon, Halsey, Ariana Grande, Paris Jackson, Madison Beer, Emily Ratajkowski, and more. Halsey said she was hit by rubber bullets, explaining, "They opened fire multiple times. I was hit twice. Once by pellets and once by shrapnel. We were gassed repeatedly for hours."

Elton John is reportedly worth $445 million, but apparently the coronavirus postponement of his “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour has hit him hard financially. According to The Daily Mail, things are so bad that Elton has not only laid off his touring band until they know when the tour could possible pick back up, he’s also let go many members of the domestic staff at his Atlanta home. The report claims Elton was counting on the money from the tour to last into his retirement as the tour was expected to make over $74 million. They also say his insurance probably won’t pay out any of his losses. Has he just managed his money so poorly after all these years? What’s up with the $445 million?

Lithub.com reports that George R.R. Martin is buying a historic railway in New Mexico along with two others in the hopes of breathing new life into the areas. The line runs from Santa Fe to the town of Lamy and dates back to 1879. No word on if he ever plans to finish the restoration though, Iike he can’t finish “Winds of Winter.” Just sayin’, George….

Forbes crowned Kylie Jenner the world's youngest-ever "self-made" billionaire in August 2018, and now they’re taking the title away from her. According to Forbes, they believe Kylie and her mom, Kris, showed them false tax returns to make her company appear as if it were double the millions it is. However, even with the new numbers, she's still worth around $900 million, so she’ll get to be a billionaire soon, just not quite yet. Read more with TMZ. In the meantime, Kylie has some words for Forbes; "what am i even waking up to. i thought this was a reputable site... all i see are a number of inaccurate statements and unproven assumptions lol. i’ve never asked for any title or tried to lie my way there EVER. period. 'even creating tax returns that were likely forged' that’s your proof? so you just THOUGHT they were forged? like actually what am i reading." She ended by saying, "but okay. i am blessed beyond my years, i have a beautiful daughter, and a successful business and i’m doing perfectly fine. i can name a list of 100 things more important right now than fixating on how much money i have."

Kris Jenner, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and Reese Witherspoon are among the many celebrities who have taken to social media to express their outrage over the death of George Floyd. Camilla Cabello and Shawn Mendes joined protesters in the streets. Vanessa Bryant shared a picture of the late Kobe Bryant wearing a t-shirt that said, “I Can’t Breathe,” a reference to the death of Eric Garner in 2014 at the hand of police in New York City. She captioned it, “My husband wore this shirt years ago and yet here we are again.” Jamie Foxx begged for people to protest without losing focus. Mariah Carey posted a snippet of her singing the 1990 song “There’s Got to Be a Better Way.” She wrote, “I wrote this song for my first album. Still looking for answers today. We have to make a change. We can't be silent. #BlackLivesMatter.” She added, “Text 'FLOYD' to 55156 to demand #JusticeForFloyd -- I don't understand how there can be regulated bigotry. There's got to be a way to connect this world today --”

Andy Cohen has revealed that he has had to find a new home for his beloved dog, Wacha, after the dog showed "some occasional random signs of aggression," and that could prove "catastrophic" for his 1-year-old son, Benjamin Allen. He wrote on Instagram, "I’ve put off sharing this news as long as I could. As you may know, Wacha is my first baby, my beautiful rescue puppy," adding that Wacha is his "pride and joy." He did say that Wacha has found a permanent home with a great family and that he is thriving. He also said that Wacha was the one who opened him up "to love… to caring… and ultimately to having a family."

Jennifer Garner finally let Ana de Armas meet the kids, and we know this because Ben Affleck and Ana were on their daily paparazzi walk and the kids were with them. Jen is cautious about who their kids - 14-year-old Violet, 11-year-old Seraphina, and 8-year-old Samuel – meet when it comes to Ben’s girlfriends, I guess she felt the time was now right. See the pictures at dlisted.com. Or, maybe it’s because Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas were spotted looking at a property together in Venice, California. It’s a 3,500 square-foot beach house with a 2,100 square-foot guest house listed for $9,750,000. I’ll bet Violet is calling dibs on the guest house.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are going after their former bodyguard, Steve Stanulis, for blabbing about them during interviews. You’ll recall that he was on the "Hollywood Raw Podcast" a few weeks ago, talking about some of the ridiculous requests made by Kanye, which they say is a breach of their confidentiality agreement. They’ve now threatened to sue him for at least $10 million for breaching their confidentiality deal. He’s done this to them before, but the first time, the couple accepted an apology. Doesn’t sound like an “I’m sorry” will go far this time though.

John Cusack took multiple pictures and videos which he shared on social media while out protesting in Chicago over the death of George Floyd. At one point, while on his bike, John said police officers came at him with batons. In the video, someone assumed to be an officer, can be heard yelling "Get the f*** out of here!" along with what sounds like a baton hitting John’s bike multiple times. In a follow-up tweet with video, he wrote, "These were some of the peace officers - who gently tuned up my bike with their batons." In the meantime, Chrissy Teigan, Steve Carell, Ben Schwartz, Seth Rogen, and Janelle Monáe were among those who have donated to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, a nonprofit that helps pay the bail of those who can’t afford to do so. And Jay-Z has had what he calls an “earnest conversation” with Governor Walz, praising him “for doing what's right and calling in Attorney General Keith Ellizon to take over the George Floyd case."

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been barraged by drones flying over their current home in Los Angeles, Tyler Perry's mansion, so they turned to Tyler for some advice. The couple has now hired members of Tyler's preferred security firm, Gavin de Becker and Associates. They are one of the most respected security firms in the country… but they don't come cheap. It's reported that the cost of being protected by this firm is around $8,500 a day, according to the New York Post.

Josh Gad said his daughters aren’t impressed by his Olaf impressions anymore. According to Josh, his girls - Ava, nine, and Isabella, six- "My girls really wish Moana is their father. They are somewhat over Olaf at this point. I have to remind them that Olaf pays for their school, the roof over their head, and those quesadillas they love eating. So Olaf isn't going anywhere soon if they want to keep eating and drinking!" Read more with aceshowbiz.com.
