Robert Pattinson has been calling his ex-girlfriend, Nina Schubert. Even after their break-up they remained close. They grew up together and lived around the corner from one another in south-west London. They even went to Barnes drama club together. The only reason they broke up is because Rob moved to L.A. to work. From the sounds of it Nina has been there for him more than anyone else over the last two weeks. She’ll even pick-up when he calls her at 2am saying over and over how stupid he feels for not realizing what was going on between Kristen and Rupert.
Meanwhile Kristen is getting it from all angles. On Twitter and on fan sites Twi-Hards are calling her a Trampire, and she's getting disturbing things mailed to her as well, like pictures of her and Rob with her eyes burnt out with cigarettes.
Believe it or not, I’ve also heard that before Kristen cheated on Rob they were talking about having a baby together. I guess Rob wants to start a family and they had several conversations about it. Kristen fears she’ll never have the chance to get Rob back, and that their baby dreams are now totally shattered.
As far as Rupert’s relationship with his wife, Liberty goes, they were spotted together yesterday in Beverly Hills. They met in an office building… Who knows if they were seeing a counsellor or a divorce lawyer.
The Spice Girls are reportedly performing at the Closing Ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics and reportedly Posh Spice, aka Victoria Beckham is causing a lot of problems for the rest of the girls. Victoria supposedly has outrageous demands. For example, I hear they’re paying at least $15,000 for her hair, make-up and stylist. In comparison, the other Spice Girls cost one-fourth of what Victoria is costing. Perhaps that’s why they’ve decided not to do that world tour.
Kanye West debuted a new song over the weekend that he wrote about his girlfriend Kim Kardashian and it carries the very romantic title, "Perfect [B-word]". Kanye debuted it at a club in New York City after he and Leonardo Dicaprio arrived together at about 1:30 Sunday morning. No one has posted it online yet, but my source says, "[He raps] verses about his search for the perfect woman and how he has now found the 'perfect [b-word]." It also contains references to Kim's, quote, "famous curves". Still though, just in case there was any confusion, Kanye later Tweeted, quote, "I wrote the song . . . about Kim." There's no word if or when Kanye plans to release it.
My source tells me Katie Holmes is loving being single! She feels like a new woman and totally refreshed! Katie’s enjoying her independence and hopefully getting her career back on track. Tom influenced what movies she appeared in, so she was unable to steer her career in the way she wanted to. Now, she has full control over what she wants to do and that freedom is exciting for her. I do hear however that she has some guilt for blindsiding Tom the way she did. She does believe that he always had her best interests in mind, it was the fact that her best interests always involved or were influenced by the Church of Scientology that scared her.
Katy Perry and John Mayer are having sleepovers at John’s house. He lives in a gated community in L.A. so it’s very private and they’ve been sneaking in and out now for a while apparently. They’re starting to be less and less secretive though. This past weekend they attended a party at the home of a Hollywood talent agent, and the "guests" included creatures from a wild animal preserve, including a kangaroo and an alligator. Apparently Katy and John were really cute together standing near each other most of the night and playing with the animals. My source tells me they almost acted like they’ve been a couple for a long time.
Last year Rihanna appeared in several ads for the skincare company Nivea, but thanks to the company’s new CEO, she won’t be asked back. The new guy in charge told a German newspaper, quote, "Rihanna is a no go. I do not understand how to bring the core brand of Nivea in conjunction with Rihanna. Nivea is a company which stands for trust, family and reliability." In response, Rihanna posted a picture of the guy, and wrote, "No caption necessary."
Brad Pitt recently bought a motorbike for son Madoxx. He got builders at their place to dig him a muddy trail all through the woods and around the lake. Brad was just as excited as Maddox about it, though - he's put in little jumps and puddles so they'll get really muddy. The bike has an automatic clutch and, of course, Brad's bought him his own helmet and protective gear. Pretty cool dad!

The downside to being a famous comedian is that people don't know when to take you seriously. Just ask Zach Galifianakis. He says, quote, "At my sister's wedding, years ago, I started crying. And everybody thought it was a joke. So, I don't know if you've ever been in front of the public crying and having everyone laughing at you . . . it's really not a good feeling." Zach says the same thing happened at his brother's wedding. He adds, quote, "It is one of those things that people think I'm being sarcastic, but I'm not 'on' all of the time. I like to be sincere as much as I can." Zach adds that he has a love-hate relationship with showbiz . . . quote, "I am a bit of a baby: I like to be in movies, but the 'being known' part is the drag part . . . I was happiest when I was an underground comedian that nobody [knew]."
