Baby on the way
Al Pacino and his much, much younger girlfriend, Noor Alfallah, are expecting a child together. The news was just as shocking when the 83-year-old actor found out as it was for pretty much everyone else, according to reports. On June 1, Showbiz 411 reported that the "Heat" star didn't believe the child was his at first, as he felt he wasn't able to impregnate a woman anymore, given a variety of health issues. He even allegedly insisted Noor, 29, take a DNA test to prove the child was his. TMZ reported that Noor did indeed take a test and proved Al did father her unborn child. Noor is eight months pregnant, but she apparently didn't tell the celebrated actor for nearly three months. The producer was first linked to the Oscar winner in April 2002. She previously dated Mick Jagger, 79, and billionaire Nicolas Berggruen, 61. This will be Al's fourth child. His other three kids are all adults.
A jury found Danny Masterson guilty on two of three counts of rape in Los Angeles on May 31. This was actually the second trial for the "That '70s Show" actor, as his October 2022 trial for the same charges ended in a mistrial after jurors remained deadlocked. Danny had pleaded not guilty to raping three women at his home in separate incidents between 2001 and 2003. He was taken into custody after the verdict was delivered and faces a possible sentence of 30 years to life in prison. After the verdict was handed down, one of Danny's accusers told CNN, "I am experiencing a complex array of emotions — relief, exhaustion, strength, sadness — knowing that my abuser, Danny Masterson, will face accountability for his criminal behavior." The actor will be sentenced in August.

Cash money!

In the clear
Sexual assault charges against Armie Hammer were dropped on May 31, confirming that the actor will not face a jury of his peers. The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said in a statement that it could not prove the "Call Me By Your Name" actor engaged in a "non-consensual, forcible sexual encounter," which had been alleged. The case stemmed from a woman's claim that Armie "violently raped" her in a hotel room "for over four hours" in 2017. Prosecutors began investigating the claim in 2021. After charges were officially dropped, Armie thanked supporters. "I am very grateful to the District Attorney for conducting a thorough investigation and coming to the conclusion that I have stood by this entire time, that no crime was committed," he wrote on Instagram. "I look forward to beginning what will be a long, difficult process of putting my life back together now that my name is cleared."

Rihanna, whose money comes from music and her Fenty cosmetics and clothing brands, is No. 1. Forbes estimates that Taylor is worth $740 million, meaning she's now surpassed both Madonna and Beyonce.

Off the market
A rosy new beginning! "The Bachelorette" season 10 lead Andi Dorfman married Blaine Hart on May 31 in front of 75 family members and friends at the Conca del Sogno Beach Club in Sorrento, Italy. The bride shared details of their nuptials — and photos — with People magazine, which reported that the bride wore a corseted gown by Karen Sabag and Manolo Blahnik shoes. "It's kind of a crazy story," the attorney-turned-author said of her romance with Blaine. "We actually met at a party when we were both in college. Blaine was playing baseball at Furman University and one of my friends was his teammate. We met and then I never heard from him again until 15 years later in Italy." Blaine, she explained, "started DMing me and asked if I wanted to go for drinks. I told him, 'I'm in Italy, so no.' And he was like, 'Well obviously. I saw your Instagram story, I'm here too and I want to take you out for drinks.'" They met up and "that was it," Andi said, adding that Italy was the obvious choice for a wedding locale: "It's a very special place for us."
