Keanu Reeves Has Been Secretly Donating Millions To Children’s Hospitals - As if you needed another reason to love Keanu Reeves, it turns out that he’s been running a private charity foundation for more than ten years that funds children’s hospitals and cancer research. It’s no surprise he hasn’t told anyone – the actor is known for being nicer and more humble than Hollywood stars are usually known for. It’s not like he’s never mentioned it. Back in 2009, he reportedly talked about the foundation in a "Ladies Home Journal" article, explaining that he doesn’t “like my name attached to it.” “I just let the foundation do what it does,” he said at the time. Apparently, he’s motivated to give to the cause because his sister Kim was diagnosed with leukemia back in the 1990s (thankfully, it later went into remission). The star has also reportedly donated to other charities, like the Spinal Cord Opportunities for Rehabilitation Endowment (SCORE) charity supporting hockey players with spinal injuries. He also donated his time to help out the Stand Up to Cancer telethon in 2008, taking calls to help raise funds for the cause.
Pete Davidson Goes Dark; Friends Try To Bring Light - Pete Davidson has had one helluva weekend. He started by posting a disturbing message on The ‘Gram.

The “Saturday Night Live”-er went on to say, “I’m doing my best to stay here for you but I actually don’t know how much longer I can last. All I’ve ever tried to do was help people. Just remember I told you so.” Not long after that, he deleted his account...and ALL of his social media accounts soon after. After that, everyone came out of the woodwork to check on Pete. The New York Police Department actually did a welfare check on him. After they determined that he was safe, they referred all other questions to NBC. And Jon Cryer tweeted that the comedian was at “SNL” and accounted for. He added, “We are thinking of you, Pete. You are loved.”
JWoww Files Restraining Order Against Estranged Husband - We previously reported that Jenni “JWoww” Farley and her husband Roger Mathews were “working on things” after filing for divorce… but it looks like that’s out the window.
