Karl Lagerfeld has apologized for calling Adele fat by giving her a handbag.
The Chanel creative director has reportedly gifted the "Someone Like You" singer with a collection of the fashion house's bags to say sorry for branding her a "little too fat" in a French magazine earlier this year.
"He told his team to send Adele the best the fashion house have to offer after hearing she collected bags. He said he really wanted to make it up to her so they could maybe work together in the future. He could see her fronting a campaign for Chanel Mademoiselle bags when the contract with Blake Lively ends. He's annoyed with himself because he ended up insulting her when he meant to compliment her. He thinks she's beautiful and calls her divine," a source said.
David and Victoria Beckham are planning to sell their British mansion.
The couple bought the $28.7 million estate - dubbed Beckingham Palace - in Hertfordshire shortly after tying the knot in 1999. Having relocated to Los Angeles in 2007 so David could play football for LA Galaxy, the Beckhams - who are worth more than $255 million - reportedly want to sell off their properties in England and France and focus on life in America.
"David and Victoria have been wanting to sell up for a couple of years now but the timing was never right. They didn't want to lose money, putting their homes up for sale during a slump in the property market. So, after getting it valued two years ago, decided to hold off until now," a source said.
They are believed to have lavished $28.7 million on the 22-acre home - which they bought for $4 million - so that it now features a petting zoo, indoor and outdoor pools, studio, gym and tennis courts.
Rihanna insists she doesn't dress daringly for attention.
The "We Found Love" singer hit the headlines earlier this week when she donned a see-through black top and no bra. But despite the controversy, the 24-year-old singer insists she doesn't dress to shock - she just wears what she feels comfortable in, even if it leaves little to the imagination.
"Dressing is always so spontaneous, it always depends on the mood, plus the occasion, plus your little badass daring touch that I like to put on my outfit every time. I don't do things for the response or for the controversy. I just live my life. The clothes that I like and the clothes that I'm attracted to sometimes are sheer, sometimes are bold, sometimes they're very daring. I'm okay with buying a sheer shirt, because if I bought it sheer, that means I was okay with you seeing through it. Someone else might wear it with a bra, someone else might wear it with a tank top, someone might wear it with booby tape, someone might wear it with none, and I happen to fall in that category."
Seann William Scott is marrying model Lindsay Frimodt.
The American Reunion actor proposed to the Victoria's Secret beauty on Valentine's Day, this February.
"Seann asked her to marry him on Valentine's Day and she said yes," a source close to him said.
The 35-year-old star may be reprising his role as womanizing, sex-obsessed Steve Stifler for American Reunion - the fourth film in the American Pie series - but has distanced himself from the hard partying character in real life.
"I have a girl in my life. I was never really able to take advantage of being an actor, because I was always too shy to talk to girls," he said.
Seann also admitted many fans of his iconic alter ego are upset when they realise he is nothing like him: "I walk down the street and someone's like, 'Hey we'll buy you a shot.' And I'm like, 'No, I'm OK.' They're so crushed, like 'What? But you were in American Pie.' I say, 'It's a movie.'"
David Beckham is starting to talk like an American.
The British-born footballer - who moved to Los Angeles with wife Victoria in 2007 to play for LA Galaxy - admits he is losing his London twang.
"I catch myself calling my kids 'dude' every once in a while, so there are a few words creeping in. And using American words like elevator instead of lift," he said.
Since departing the UK, 37-year-old Victoria has left behind her Spice Girl roots and forged a successful career for herself as a fashion designer. And according to David, their sons Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, nine, and six-year-old Cruz have inherited their mother's sense of style:
"They're at the age when they want to wear their own things. You've got the oldest, Brooklyn, and he'll wear his soccer shirts and a T-shirt. Romeo is the fashion one, so he'll go in and pick up skinny jeans and a vintage T-shirt and a funny hat. Cruz loves Justin Bieber, so anything he's got Cruz wants, like the big high-tops with skinny jeans. They all have their own style."
Olivier Martinez has confirmed his engagement to Halle Berry.
The 46-year-old French actor - who met Halle on the set of Dark Tide in 2010 - has finally gone public with their plans to marry.
Asked about the engagement, he said, " Yes, of course it's true."
Speaking ahead of the opening of his new restaurant, Villa Azur, in Miami on Saturday, he also set the record straight about who designed the New Year's Eve actress' emerald and yellow gold ring. Jewelry designer Gurhan claimed to be the brains behind the ring in a statement to People, but Olivier says it was actually created by Parisian jeweler Robert Mazlo - who he says has been making jewelry for, "kings and queens for many centuries."
"There is a jeweler taking credit for doing the ring and it's a lie! They have nothing to do with this," he explained, talking to the Miami Herald newspaper.
Ashley Olsen is unlikely to ever act again.
The 25-year-old star - who made her acting debut aged just nine months alongside her twin Mary-Kate in Full House - hasn't appeared in a film since 2004's New York Minute and has no plans to return in front of the camera.
"We worked non-stop until we were 18. Then we decided to take a break and go to school - and that was when we decided to question whether we would carry on in entertainment. It was time to step behind the process. I wanted to work on other things. It doesn't mean I'm not interested in Hollywood, I like the way it operates and the people who are involved and the sense of possibility. But if I ever do get back in, it's not going to be as an actress."
Though Mary-Kate has made some film and TV appearances since New York Minute - including an eight-episode stint in Weeds - she also thinks it "felt right" to step away from acting.
"It just felt right to move away," she said.
Kanye West has upset Britain's royal family.
The rapper was reportedly the subject of a number of complaints from unspecified members of the monarchy who were infuriated by the star playing his music too loudly in his $4,300-a-night suite at London's Lanesborough Hotel - which is near Buckingham Palace - where he has been living with members of his entourage including Common, Pusha T and Big Sean.
"We went to London and we were right next to the Buckingham Palace and the royal family. There were members of the royal family staying below us. Kanye had rented out the top floor and we was banging that b***h out. Every room was a studio. The royal family below were complaining like, 'We got all this loud-ass rap music above us and weed smoke.' They paid all this money and you don't expect to get these kind of complaints," Kanye's protégé Big Sean told The Sun.
Despite the complaints, Kanye hasn't spent all his time in the hotel. Last month, he joined in the Jack the Ripper tour, which takes place in London's East End area and retraces the footsteps of the notorious and still unidentified serial killer from the late 1800s.
Jessica Simpson found out she was pregnant thanks to pre-cocktail "guilt."
The 31-year-old Fashion Star mentor - who is expecting her first-born with fiancé Eric Johnson - admits she was overcome by bad feelings as she prepared for a drinking session: "We were going to have an all-day drinking binge. Going to ride our bikes, hang out ... do naughty things. But I started feeling this overwhelming guilt. Why would I feel guilt at the idea of going out and having cocktails with my friends?"
A pregnancy test confirmed her suspicions, and Jessica is expected to give birth to a baby girl this spring.
But the Dukes of Hazzard actress is praying her daughter inherits her sense of style: "I swear I will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins! Eric is so athletic. We're going to have this athletic girl and I won't even be able to take her shopping."
The wedding of Britain's Prince William and Duchess Catherine was "deeply romantic."
Actress Sophie Winkleman - who is married to William's cousin Lord Fredrick Windsor - was very impressed with how well the couple coped tying the knot in such a hugely public way: "I don't know how it managed to capture the feeling of amazing love when it was such a stunningly impressive global occasion but it did. It really was deeply romantic."
Despite her husband's regal background, Sophie insists her spouse's family have been very "welcoming" towards her: "When I went to my first formal occasion, I was definitely wobbly, but the whole family has been very welcoming and warm. And let's face it - all families are pretty complicated."
Sophie admitted she feels "saved" by fashion house Armani as she can always rely on their creations when she has to attend formal events: "Armani saved me. Very fashiony things I can't cope with and I don't know if they suit me, but classic stuff tends to work. Armani clothes are beautifully cut and vey imaginative in their own way but they don't wear you."
