La Toya Jackson reportedly got married on Friday.
The 57-year-old star, who is the older sister of the late Michael Jackson, tied the knot with her long-time friend and business partner, Jeffre Phillips, in Los Angeles. A source told gossip website RadarOnline.com that La Toya's mother Katherine Jackson and her nephew Prince, 16, both attended the low-key nuptials.
La Toya did not mention her wedding on Twitter on Friday but tweeted, "Happy Friday Guys! An Act Of Kindness Is Always Appreciated!"
Jeffre surprised the singer by proposing on her show, Life with La Toya, after she went on several unsuccessful dates. But a source previously old the National Enquirer magazine that the duo have been together for years. "She decided to pretend she's looking for a boyfriend, but she's been with Jeffre for years. Everyone who knows them personally knows they're in a relationship. Jeffre is going along with it because he wants the show to be a success," the insider said.
Jennifer Hudson keeps pushing her wedding date back.
The Black Nativity star - who has four-year-old son David with fiance David Otunga - has a date in mind for the big day and despite it continually "rolling around" each year she's not planning on "rushing into anything."
"Yes, there was a date set, and that date has come around again every year. In fact, the date may keep rolling around... When I'm ready to be married, I will be married. It's that simple. Everyone should just chill. Our relationship is very strong. We're both huge family people, and I'm only going to get married once. So I'm not rushing into anything," she told Essence.
Jennifer had to leave her family behind in 2011 when she travelled to South Africa to film Winnie Mandela - a biopic about the late Nelson Mandela's wife - and although she found the separation difficult she was fully committed to telling the story of the controversial political figure. "I was like, 'Oh, my God, you want me to leave my baby and my man?' But so much was done to suppress Winnie's voice, to keep her quiet. Winnie's story needed to be told," she explained.
Jennifer Lopez has requested to shed Marc Anthony's last name in legal documents.
The "On the Floor" singer is legally known as Jennifer Muniz, after taking on her ex-husband's legal last name when they married in 2004, but now she has requested to revert back to her maiden name, Lopez - which is also her professional moniker - in a legal response to the couple's ongoing divorce proceedings.
According to gossip website TMZ, Jennifer and Marc's petitions are identical on custody issues and the couple are asking for joint legal and physical custody of their five-year-old twins, Max and Emme. Marc filed for divorce from the 44-year-old singer in April last year after they officially separated in 2011.
Jennifer has since been in a long term relationship with choreographer Casper Smart, while Marc has been dating Topshop heiress Chloe Green since February this year.
Simon Cowell has told Russell Brand to give up his multi-million pound salary if he's serious about his new political beliefs.
The music mogul has criticized the comic star for accepting large salaries for his Hollywood films, while also campaigning against the political system in the UK. Russell, 48, recently joined a protest with British activist group Anonymous as part of a worldwide protest against austerity cuts and the disadvantages of the current socio-economic system.
But Simon thinks Russell is a hypocrite who doesn't do what he says and has actually greatly benefited from capitalism. "A revolution? He's getting $10 million a movie. I mean come on! Well give your money back then, Russell. I always say that about people. Start off as you mean to go on. Donate all the money back to the revolution and then I'll believe it. I'm living in a $10 million mansion and I want a revolution? Give me a break," said the X Factor boss.
Lewis Hamilton wants to propose to Nicole Scherzinger in the New Year.
The couple, who ended their five-year romance in June, reportedly got back together a month ago and are trying to keep the reunion a secret, but Lewis has plans to pop the question after Christmas. "This will be the third time Lewis has planned to pop the question. But he believes this time is different. Both of them have benefited from the split, realizing it's impossible for them to be without each other. He wants to take Nicole to romantic Carmel and present her with the ring. There's no doubt in his mind she'll say 'yes,'" a close friend told The Daily Star.
The X Factor judge, 35, and the 28-year-old racing car driver have had a number of break-ups in the past, and the Nicole has reportedly told friends she wants to be "absolutely sure" before going public with their romance.
The pair celebrated Thanksgiving together at Lewis' parents' home last Thursday, sparking speculation they are in a relationship, but so far the former Pussycat Dolls singer has denied the rumors they are back together.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are planning to get married at the Palace of Versailles.
The couple - who have six-month-old daughter North together - have their sights set on having a spectacular ceremony at the royal chateau, which is located southwest of Paris, and money is no object to Kim and Kanye.
"Kanye has never been married and wants a big [wedding]. They are not working with a budget," a source told Us Weekly.
When Kim was 19 she married music producer Damon Thomas in 2000 but they split in 2003 when he filed for divorce. The sexy star then tied the knot with her second husband, basketball player Kris Humphries, in a $10 million wedding in August 2011, but filed for divorce just 72 days later.
Kanye is taking responsibility for planning the big day, which he wants to be the "biggest show on earth," and Kim is happy to let her fiance take control.
Joe Jonas has been slammed as a "bad artist" by Dylan Sprouse.
The former Jonas Brothers star gave a revealing interview earlier this week in which he claimed he felt working for Disney meant he had to "sugarcoat" his true self and had little choice or creative input into his work.
But now his fellow former Disney star Dylan - best known for starring with twin brother Cole in The Suite Life of Zack & Cody - has hit out at his "bulls**t" comments, insisting Joe was more likely dazzled by fame than being prepared to make his own decisions. In a blog post, Dylan wrote, "I think it's bulls**t that they were being robbed of choice or creativity. If they wanted too, they could have told Disney 'No.' Cole and I did this hundreds of times and we ended up all right. The only reason they didn't is because, like many of the people on that channel, I think they fell for the allure of fame... Nowadays artists just assume they have to do what they are told by their proprietors because there is a 'rigid structure to achievement.' It is nothing more than a scheme to rob you of your individuality and capitalize the gain they acquire from such treachery. If you believe this, not only are you incredibly foolish, but you are a BAD ARTIST [sic]."
Beyonce Knowles treated Jay Z to a vegan feast for his 44th birthday on Wednesday.
The "Love On Top" hitmaker took her rapper husband, who has vowed to stick to a plant-based diet until Christmas Day, to the popular organic restaurant, Cafe Gratitude, in Los Angeles. The couple, who left their 23-month-old daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, at home for the occasion, tucked into a range of meatless dishes including marinated kale salad, Indian curried lentils and corn tacos with chipotle butternut squash, according to gossip website TMZ.com, before enjoying vegan chocolate truffles for dessert.
Oscar-winning actress Anne Hathaway and singer Ariana Grande were also dining in eatery at the time.
Their outing came just one day after Jay Z revealed that he and his wife were inspired by a close friend to give up animal food products until December 25. "Psychologists have said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day, you've found the way. On December 3, one day before my 44th birthday I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant-based! This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a 'plant-based breakfast' everyday. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought," the "Holy Grail" hitmaker wrote on his Life and Times Blog on Tuesday.
Liam Hemsworth has allegedly begged Miley Cyrus to get back together with him.
The Hunger Games star really misses his ex-fiancee, whom he split from in September after three years together, and wants to win her back. A source told Us Weekly magazine that the former couple secretly met up last month and "talked like they did when they were together." The insider claimed that the Australian heartthrob, 23, convinced the "Wrecking Ball" hitmaker, 21, that they needed to talk face to face, adding, "He pushed to get back in touch. He still has feelings. The attraction hasn't gone away."
The duo have reportedly been exchanging "flirty texts," but Miley isn't convinced they should reunite. "She's confused about how she feels," the source said.
Liam, who enjoyed a brief fling with Mexican actress Eiza Gonzalez the day after he announced his split from Miley, recently admitted he is "extremely happy" for her following the success of her latest album Bangerz and insisted he is still single.
Kanye West has hired Andy Warhol's cousin to paint Kim Kardashian.
The 36-year-old rapper, who recently boasted his fiancee is "the most beautiful woman of all time," has commissioned Monica Warhol, who is related to the late legendary pop artist, to create a one-off portrait of the brunette beauty.
Monica told the New York Post's Page Six she is very excited about the project and despite never getting the chance to meet Andy, who passed away in 1987 when she was 10, she believes he would have been very impressed by Kim: "She's an icon. She's famous for nothing. Andy would have loved her. Kim is beautiful. She's so manufactured. She looks like a human Barbie."
Arizona-based Monica has previously painted portraits of rapper Flo Rida that appear in the music video for his song, "How I Feel," and also painted a likeness of Lenny Kravitz, after meeting him in the Church Boutique in Los Angeles.
