George Clooney Jokes Quarantine Life With Fam Has “Been An Adventure” - Stars – they’re really just like us! Especially when it comes to quarantine. George Clooney has been getting used to life in quarantine with his family, joking in a new actors roundtable for the “Los Angeles Time” that it’s “been an adventure” so far. Clooney and wife Amal share three-year-old twins Ella and Alexander. As he’s spent his time “mostly inside the host” over the last nine months, the Oscar-winner jokes quarantine life has “been an adventure in a lot of washing dishes and changing diapers – on my own, mostly.” While Clooney has a “great deal of gratitude” that he can spend quarantine safely with Amal and the kids, he also misses family he hasn’t been able to see, like his 87-year-old father Nick. “It’s been a crappy year, but we’re gonna get through it,” he adds. “If I didn’t believe that, I don’t know how we’d raise kids in this world… my belief is that we will come out better.”
Dax Shepard Talks About Relapsing In The Public Eye - As you may recall, Dax Shepard had a lapse in his 16-year sobriety journey a few months back. While the actor received an outpouring of support after opening up about the relapse on his “Armchair Expert” podcast, he admits in a new interview that he was afraid to “go public” about it at first. Sitting down virtually with Ellen DeGeneres yesterday, Shepard opened up about why he didn't want to reveal his relapse at first. Sure, he had his podcast sponsors and other financial risks on the mind, but he was most afraid of losing his connection with his fans, who look up to him and often reach out for support in their own sobriety journeys. That is, until he got some sage advice from a “good friend” that inspired him to open up about his relapse. “I have a good friend who said, ‘If your real goal is to help people, it’s not very helpful that you’re 16 years sober and married to Kristen Bell. That doesn’t help a ton of people,” he recalls. “So the fact that you just fell, that’s the actual value. That’s the thing you could do that’s helpful.”
Courteney Cox Raps In New Music Video Featuring Idris Elba - Courteney Cox is trying her hand at the rap game – alongside another famous rapper.

The Canadian rapper’s star-studded track came about when he responded to Elba’s rap challenge on Instagram. Price’s freestyle caught Elba’s eye, they cooked something up in the studio together, and then they sent it to Cox, who was “curious” enough about the song all about her that she ended up hopping on the track herself! In the music video for song, Cox “crashes” Elba and Price’s collab to confront Price about some of the lyrics, namely: “Cougar flirting with me, call her Courteney Cox.” She wraps up the track with her own rap verse, which is a total mic-dropper.

We haven't been given a reason except that he 'no longer loves me.' I'm so sorry.” So far, Gruffudd hasn’t commented on the tweet.

Kim [Kardashian] is actually the one who told me about that.

Starstruck claims she owes them money, and Kelly claims they defrauded her. Well, now Starstruck is firing back at Kelly’s claims. In legal documents, Brandon denies all of Kelly’s claims, including her argument that they violated California Labor Code by charging her huge commission fees. Starstruck clams that since they did not perform their duties in California they are not subject to that code. Kelly also claimed she was owed money by the company, but the legal documents insist she isn't. But Kelly insists her argument is true. “We stand by our allegations that Starstruck violated the Talent Agencies Act, despite their boilerplate denials,” read a statement from her lawyers, “and we look forward to trying the case before the Labor Commissioner in August."

In fact, he’s hosting two, albeit virtual ones, and he’s lined up some big names to join him, with some live performances expected. The first party is set for January 30th, the day before what was supposed to be GRAMMY night, before it was postponed. The plan is for Clive to look back at 20 of his favorite live performances, with artists like Bruce Springsteen, Rod Stewart, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Barry Gibb, Earth Wind & Fire, Jennifer Hudson and more sharing their favorite memories as well. His second bash will take place March 13th, the night before the actual GRAMMY Awards, and according to a source it will feature, “a never before seen tribute to the greatest live performances of all time — not just from his party.” So far an official guest list hasn’t been announced for either, although the Hollywood Reporter claims Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, Cher, Sia, Timbaland and Ludacris will take part as guests, as will Nancy Pelosi, Cardi B, Offset, Quincy Jones, Megan Thee Stallion, Cyndi Lauper and H.E.R.

Appearing on “Good Morning America,” Victoria defended the drama she’s stirred up on the show… and fans aren’t convinced. When asked about her knack for name-calling during the interview, Victoria insisted she has a good heart and no “ill intent.” Saying her antics are “all in good fun,” Victoria chalked up her reputation to the drama of reality television, “sincerely apologizing” to anyone truly hurt by her “words or actions”... and calling out those “bullying” her and sending her death threats, a response Victoria says she didn’t expect. Bachelor Nation was quick to voice themselves on Twitter after the “GMA” interview. Several fans are disappointed that she was even given an interview, saying Victoria is being a hypocrite for complaining about bullies when she’s been bullying the ladies vying for Matt James’ heart.

R&B Artist Trey Songz Arrested At AFC Championship Game - In case you weren’t sure, R&B artist Trey Songz spells his name with a “Z” at the end. I know because that is how it was spelled on the police report it was printed on this weekend after he was jailed overnight after he scuffled with police officers during his at the AFC championship game in Kansas City. I’m kidding about the spelling on the report because I am sure his actual name Tremaine Aldon Neverson was on the sheet after he was arrested for being a hero. Oops I mean for not following coronavirus protocols among other rules. The 36-year-old was released Monday while an investigation continues, Jackson County Sheriff’s spokesman but no charges have been filed. Kansas City police said in a statement that fans at the game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills complained about a man who was not following COVID-19-related protocols and other code of conduct rules for fans, which include not being disruptive, intoxicated, or using obscene language.

Vanessa Bryant Supports Bill Requiring Helicopter Terrain Warning System - A year ago today, Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gianna, were killed along with seven other people in a helicopter crash. Since then, his widow, Vanessa Bryant, has called for Congress to pass a helicopter safety bill. As we told you, the Kobe Bryant and Gianna Bryant Helicopter Safety Act would make things like terrain awareness systems, flight data and voice recorders mandatory on choppers carrying six or more passengers. For the record, the National Transportation Safety Board has long pressed for so-called Terrain Awareness and Warning Systems, but the Federal Aviation Administration has not generally required them in helicopters. Unfortunately, helicopter safety has been pushed to the back burner, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic and other issues. According to California Representative Brad Sherman of Los Angeles – one of the authors of the legislation – “Even the death of Kobe Bryant hasn’t gotten us where we need to go.” And Vanessa believes her husband and daughter might be alive today “if their helicopter had been equipped with the safety equipment required by this pending federal legislation.” Sherman says that he’ll try again now that Congress has convened again. ONE MORE THING!Vanessa is asking that the media honor Kobe’s life instead of showing video of his death. “Please reconsider your ‘news story’ and look at your footage through the eyes of their children, parents, spouse, siblings and family. Celebrate their lives, not the day they lost them,” she said in an IG post.
Kourtney Kardashian Linked To Travis Barker - New couple alert? Kourtney Kardashian might be dating Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. Rumors started swirling over the weekend that they’re an item after they shared similar Instagram pics from Kris Jenner’s vacation home in Palm Springs… along with a weeks-long trail of flirty social media comments. They may seem like an unlikely couple, but the rockstar and reality star have been in the same social circles for years. Plus, they’re both parents, and neighbors in California’s star-studded, gated Calabasa community. According to “People,” Kourtney and Travis have been a thing “for about a month or two” – after Travis pursued her “for a while” – and that Kourt’s “family and friends all really like” him for her. Like we mentioned, they’re both parents, and apparently it’s their kids that brought Travis and Kourtney “very close” over the years. If you’re wondering what Kourtney’s baby daddy Scott Disick thinks about her new man, a source tells “E! News” that he’s “not surprised” they’ve linked up and is “really happy” for her.
Kanye Return To Los Angeles - Kanye West is back in Los Angeles for the first time since rumors of a possible split with Kim Kardashian. He arrived on a private jet on Sunday from his ranch in Cody, Wyoming. The soon-to-be single musician looked serious as he got off the plane wearing distressed leather pants, a mustard colored hoodie, and a pair of Yeezy Foam Runners. As we’ve told you, Kim has allegedly hired celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser to work out the settlement before she files with the courts so she and ‘Ye can work out their finances and how to split up their properties. No word on what kind of custody arrangements they might make for their four children. Meanwhile, Kanye is okay with his impending divorce. “He understands Kim’s side has to spin that she is sick of him. In reality, he’s been sick of being involved with [the] Kardashians for a long while,” the insider shared. “Especially her mother [Kris Jenner], who looms large in all big decisions she makes.”
J-Lo On Combating Botox Claims: “Don’t Call Me A Liar” - We told you before that Jennifer Lopez battled the trolls accusing her of staying ageless with the help of Botox, fillers or cosmetic surgery. After insisting for the “500 millionth time” that it’s “just [her] face,” the star has doubled down that she’s all-natural in a new interview. After making headlines for her Botox clapbacks, J-Lo is making it clear she doesn’t “judge anybody” for going under the knife or using “injectables” to perfect their look – but don’t count her in, and don’t call her a “liar.” Speaking to “People,” the star says her “biggest beauty secret” is being “kind to others and lifting up other women.” “I’m telling you what I do that works! Please don’t call me a liar, I don’t have to lie about things,” she adds. “I just felt it had to be set straight, but in a loving way.”
JoJo Siwa Says Her House Got Swatted After Coming Out - As we previously reported, JoJo Siwa just came out as gay with a viral TikTok set to Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way.” While the internet is celebrating her announcement, it turns out things haven’t been as fun on the “Dance Moms” alum’s side. During an Instagram Live this weekend, JoJo told fans that her home was “swatted” after her big announcement – which is a longtime but totally uncool prank call where someone sends armed police to a person’s home address, usually with allegations of law-breaking activity. JoJo is pinning the "prank" on the media, who she says swat celebs to get them to come outside their houses. So far, no official word from police on what went down at JoJo’s place. “We were at our house and all of a sudden there were a whole bunch of police telling us to come outside the house,” JoJo explained during the livestream. “The police were saying that somebody called and made a claim, and then all of a sudden paparazzi came around the corner.”

Madison LeCroy Pulls Out Jay Cutler Romance Receipts - We told you before that exes Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler confused fans with matching Instagram pics together marking “10 years.” While some fans saw the post as a sign they got back together, sources shot that down… and it turns out the post might’ve been a message to “Southern Charm” star Madison LeCroy. As you may recall, just months before Cavallari and Cutler’s IG reunion, Cavallari shot down rumors she was dating LeCroy’s ex Austen Kroll. LeCroy has since chimed in on the drama by pulling out receipts of her alleged romance with Cutler, sharing screenshots of her texts with the former quarterback – not only do they appear to prove he’s been pursuing her, but she also mentions in the texts that they slept together. In the screenshots, Cutler asks if he can fly out to see LeCroy. But there’s also some tension, as Cutler accuses LeCroy of dragging his name through the mud, which LeCroy denies. Alongside the screenshots share
