Hailey Bieber shows off her new wedding set bling
Hailey Bieber may need to invest in a darker pair of sunglasses. The 22-year-old, who just tied the knot for the second time with Justin Bieber, showed off the one-two-punch of baubles that now adorn her ring finger on Instagram this week, giving her followers an up-close look at her current collection of bridal bling. Let's just say we're impressed the shine from the oval-cut diamond engagement ring and two diamond wedding bands — both from Tiffany & Co., according to People — didn't white-out the whole shot with its glare. "Love my wedding band set," Hailey captioned a post of the rings on her Instagram Story on Friday, Oct. 4. "thank you @tiffanyandco." The wedding rings include a Tiffany Soleste 18-karat gold diamond-encrusted band that People reports would go for about $3,125, plus a Tiffany Soleste 18-karat gold and diamond V-ring, priced around $2,150.

Khloe Kardashian is 'not getting back with' Tristan Thompson, despite his rumored interest in reconciling
It would take a lot more than Instagram flattery for Khloe Kardashian to get back together with Tristan Thompson. That's according to a pair of Us Weekly sources who say Khloe is maintaining a relationship with her ex only in the interest of their 17-month-old daughter, True Thompson. "Khloé is coparenting and not getting back with him," said one insider after Tristan left flirty messages for Khloe, calling her "perfection" and a "beautiful 💎" on some of her posts. "Khloé and Tristan have been spending time together primarily involving True. Tristan has made it known to Khloé he wants to reconcile," said a second source. "Her friends are concerned Tristan misses the lifestyle and perks that are included when dating a Kardashian." According to that insider, Khloe "doesn't seem open to reconciling with Tristan" after he was caught making out with then-family friend Jordyn Woods in February — the incident that sparked Khloe to dump him. She does, however, want him to "spend time with True," the source adds.
Blue Ivy Carter is not a 'cultural icon,' according to event planner who wants to trademark the name
The name game that wouldn't end … Beyonce and JAY-Z have been fighting for access to a trademark on their daughter Blue Ivy Carter's name for years now, thanks largely to the repeated obstacles set forth by an event planner named Veronica Morales, who claims her company, Blue Ivy Events, began using "Blue Ivy" before Bey and Jay's daughter was born. Bey recently filed papers in which her lawyers asserted that the 7-year-old is a "cultural icon," making her the first association with the name for most people. Veronica has stated she filed to trademark the name of her company in 2012, the timing of which Bey seems to find suspicious given that Blue was born on Jan. 7 of that year. "[Morales' claim] that consumers are likely to be confused between a boutique wedding event planning business and Blue Ivy Carter, the daughter of two of the most famous performers in the world, is frivolous and should be refused in its entirety," Bey's recent filing read, according to The Blast. This week, the website reported Veronica filed a response in which she slammed the singer's assertion, telling the court: "Beyonce's company is trying to skirt the law, and recently argued that the 7-year old Blue Ivy Carter is a 'cultural icon' in the United States. According to Wikipedia, a cultural icon 'is an artifact that is identified by members of a culture as representative of that culture,' such as apple pie, baseball, and the United States Flag." The Blast reports the two sides are scheduled to see the case go to trial.
Travis Scott's new song seems to reference Kylie Jenner split
Was Travis Scott's new song, "Highest in the Room," inspired by his split from Kylie Jenner? The track — Travis' first since "Astroworld" — was recorded "months before" TMZ reported he and Kylie were taking a break, according to ET. But the longtime couple reportedly ended things at least a few weeks before the public learned what had happened, so it's possible a split was already in the works when Travis went into the studio to record the song. On "Highest in the Room," the Houston-born artist raps about family life and a woman who's disappointed he's not around much." She saw my eyes, she know I'm gone / I see some things that you might fear," he raps. "I'm doing a show, I'll be back soon / That ain't what she wanna hear." As ET reminds us, Travis canceled a concert on his tour amid reports he'd cheated (which he denied). He later said he was "under the weather" as means of an explanation for the canceled performance. Other lyrics, like, "When I'm with you, I feel alive / You say you love me, don't you lie / Won't cross my heart, don't wanna die," seem to suggest TMZ's sources were right when they said Kylie and Travis "simply fell out of love."

Gigi Hadid and Tyler Cameron pull the plug on their romance after two months of dating
Gigi Hadid and Tyler Cameron are both officially single again. Seems the pretty pair's short-lived romance hit its expiration date a while back and they're now sticking with the proverbial "friends zone," at least for the time being. "They broke up a few weeks ago. The relationship was moving quickly and was too much for both of them," a source tells E! News, adding that "the split was amicable." E! also cites a second insider who's confirmed the model and "Bachelorette" alum have called it quits. "They will definitely hangout again but decided to slow things down romantically," the first source said. "Gigi is busy traveling and Tyler is trying to get situated in NYC. Tyler would definitely pursue a romantic relationship with Gigi again but is letting things cool down for now." The news comes after Tyler sparked split rumors when he referred to Gigi as his "friend" on the Daily Pop, indicating Gigi's work and travel schedule may have contributed to their decision to break it off. "We hung out a few times," he said casually. "She's doing her thing now in Paris and killin' it so…"
James Franco hit with sexual misconduct lawsuit by two former students
The sexual misconduct allegations lodged against James Franco by four of his former acting students (and one other woman) in January 2018 have since trickled out of the news. But one of those women, Sarah Tither-Kaplan, is taking her story to court — and she's not alone. Tither-Kaplan and Toni Gaal, both of whom studied acting at Franco's now-shuttered Studio 4 in 2014, filed a lawsuit against the star on Thursday, Oct. 3. According to the New York Times, the plaintiffs allege Franco and his associates preyed on female students, using the school as homebase for "widespread inappropriate and sexually charged behavior towards female students by sexualizing their power as a teacher and an employer by dangling the opportunity for roles in their projects." The suit describes "an environment of harassment and sexual exploitation both in and out of the class" and alleges job opportunities were offered but not ultimately seen through. They also say there was pressure to perform nude scenes without "the protections of nudity riders and other film-industry guidelines that govern how actors can be portrayed and treated" in such scenes. On top of the $300-a-month tuition, Franco and his colleagues allegedly offered a $750 master class in sex scenes. According to the lawsuit, applicants interested in taking the course had to submit audition tapes — and that submitting the tapes required them to give up their rights to the footage. Tither-Kaplan also describes a group sex scene that took place in the master class in which Franco "removed plastic guards" covering the women's reproductive anatomy before he feigned sexual acts on them. In addition to damages and the return of video recordings the school had in its possession, the plaintiffs have asked to make the case a class-action suit. Franco denied the allegations when they first surfaced last year.

Harvey Weinstein's trial won't be moved out of NYC after all
Harvey Weinstein's sexual assault trial will not be moved out of New York City, in spite of his legal team's efforts to make that happen. Lawyers for the former producer had asked a panel of judges to relocate the trial on grounds the Big Apple is "the least likely place on earth where Mr. Weinstein could receive a fair trial, where jurors could hear evidence, deliberate and render a verdict in an atmosphere free of intimidation from pressure to deliver a result that the politicians, the activists, the celebrities and the media demand," according to the Associated Press. Weinstein has pleaded not guilty to charges he raped a woman in a hotel room in 2013 and forced a woman to engage in a sexual act in 2006. The trial is due to begin in January 2020.
Shay Mitchell gets candid about depression and pregnancy
Shay Mitchell was prepared to deal with mood changes once she welcomed her baby — not before. "As long as I can remember, I've heard about postpartum depression. However, to be depressed at the beginning came as a shock. The isolation and anxiety I experienced was crippling," she reveals in a new interview with the blog, Hatchland. "I thought I was going out of my mind and questioned why nobody ever talked to me about this phase," she continues. "I've been fortunate since sharing the news of my pregnancy to have some amazing conversations with other pregnant women and moms and know that all these feelings are 'normal,' so now we just need to normalize them by discussing more openly." Not that being open came easily. After a miscarriage ended a previous pregnancy, the "Pretty Little Liars" alum says she "became very anti-social" while downplaying her current pregnancy until she sure it seemed safe to share the news. "Usually, I'm incredibly active and outgoing, but instead, I mainly stayed home to avoid stares and questions. I was extremely lonely," she says. "Pregnancy can be a hard time, especially if you're having to hide it," she adds. "After I came out publicly, I felt an enormous wave of relief and was finally able to start enjoying the pregnancy."
