Meghan Markle’s former assistant Melissa Toubati reportedly quit her job after just six months because Meghan was too demanding. According to my source, Meghan put a lot of demands on Melissa and it ended up with her in tears. A royal insider, however, insists that Meghan’s behavior wasn’t problematic. “She is simply not afraid to express her opinion,” the insider explains. “While many find her a little pushy there are many in the royal household who have quickly taken to her.”
Former power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have reportedly reached a custody agreement over their six children following one of the ugliest splits in Hollywood history. That said, we don’t know details of the agreement because it’s all confidential to protect the best interest of the children. What we do know is in the beginning Angelina did want sole custody and Brad was fighting for shared custody. If it truly is over, I hope the healing process can begin.

After a whirlwind four-month romance, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas got married in a stunning wedding held at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Johdpur, Rajasthan.
The lovebirds arrived in Priyanka’s native India last week. Nick, 26, and Priyanka, 36, said their “I do’s” in a Western-style ceremony Saturday officiated by Nick’s father Paul Kevin Sr.. Yesterday, they held a Hindu ceremony to honor Priyanka’s roots. Their international list of celebrity guests also partied at the Palace after the ceremonies.
They are committed to honoring each other’s heritage and culture, Priyanka wrote in a post on Instagram. She explained: “Planning our wedding with an amalgamation of both was so amazing. … we made it our own and it was an afternoon that kicked off the celebrations in the way we both dreamed.”
Every guest received a gift bag labeled ‘Taste of India,’ which had all sorts of traditional foods, spices and treats from India so guests could get a taste of Priyanka’s culture. Inside guests were also given ‘The Oh Sh*t Kit,’ which is for people who may have forgotten something or for their hangover. Women were given beautiful totes as well.
FAST FACTS: Four months ago, Nick proposed to Priyanka with a $200K engagement ring. Nick popped the question on vacation in Crete, where they were celebrating her birthday. “I got down on one knee, again, and I said, ‘Will you make me the happiest man in the world and marry me?’” Nick says Priyanka took about 45 seconds before replying… Forty-five seconds of silence.
Lady Gaga and Katy Perry tweeted support for each other on Friday, after an entertainment site released documents that included alleged 2016 text messages between Gaga and Kesha about Katy. Gaga tweeted: “@katyperry & I have grown up in the industry together. We’ve gone through both celebrations & differences w/ each other. These are old texts. We’ve matured, gotten over the past, love each other & share deep respect. Katy is my friend and is truly a kind soul. End of story.” Meanwhile, Katy added, “Love you too friend. Onward and upward. In the original texts to Kesha, Gaga allegedly called Katy “so mean” for not telling her own story about abuse in the music industry. Dr. Luke’s defamation case against Kesha remains ongoing.
Taylor Swift’s Reputation stadium tour has broken the record for the highest-grossing U.S. tour since they started tracking touring data in 1990. The run grossed $266.1 million and sold 2,068,399 tickets domestically, besting The Rolling Stones’ $245 million gross from their A Bigger Bang Tour (2005-2007). While The Stones achieved their then-record across 70 American shows, Taylor took the title in just 38.
Kourtney Kardashian has decided to freeze her eggs, a process that’s been somewhat of a roller coaster, in large part because of the hormone shots required. “It’s like crazy,” she says in a sneak peek clip for Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. “I feel like I want to jump out of my skin. I’m so crazy, I can’t take it.” She also showed off the gnarly bruises on her stomach from the self-injecting shots, and adds, “The injections themselves weren’t really a big deal because I have a really high pain tolerance. But I think everything was just really heightened. Some days I would feel so anxious. it’s just very emotional, so that I think is the hard part.” Near the end of the clip, Kourtney admits she isn’t sure if she wants more kids, but says “I just feel like this is for safety.”
The casting for Nicki Minaj’s new “Good Form” music video is deliberate (and shady). TMZ points out that Baddie Gi and Jade–a pair of sisters planning to sue Cardi B for a revenge attack–are prominently featured in the video dancing next to Nicki. Nicki even posted a photo on Instagram featuring the two women, who work as strip-club bartenders. Cardi B was arrested back in October and charged with misdemeanors for allegedly orchestrating an assault on Jade, whom she believed slept with her husband, Offset. And, of course, Cardi and Nicki have had very public beef all year.
