Emma Watson and Chord Overstreet pack on the PDA
Are Emma Watson and Chord Overstreet on again? Did they ever even break up? Six months after paparazzi photos seemed to confirm the pair were dating, they unfollowed each other Instagram, seemingly indicating they'd parted ways. This week, however, photographers noticed the stars were back to smooching in public, sparking some to wonder if they'd rekindled their romance. On Tuesday, June 19, Emma and Chord did little to hide their affection for one another while out and about — and PDA-ing out — during a shopping stroll in Los Angeles. If they are dating (or if they never split to begin with), don't expect Emma to be too forthcoming about it, though. "I want to be consistent: I can't talk about my boyfriend in an interview and then expect people not to take paparazzi pictures of me walking around outside my home," she told Vanity Fair (via Extra) last year. "You can't have it both ways. I've noticed, in Hollywood, who you're dating gets tied up into your film promotion and becomes part of the performance and the circus. I would hate anyone that I were with to feel like they were in any way part of a show or an act."

Iggy Azalea sends love to Demi Lovato following relapse revelation
If Demi Lovato continues struggling to maintain her sobriety, she can count on Iggy Azalea to support her along the way. Following the release of Demi's new song, "Sober," in which she reveals she recently relapsed with her alcohol use, Iggy tweeted about how impressed she is with her friend's gutsiness in going public with what happened. "Waking up listening to @ddlovato 'sober. I'm proud of you for having the guts to reveal your truth to the world again. NOT. EASY," Iggy posted. "I'm here for you friend! (you know this). I'll pray you'll choose recovery again. All of us who love you only want to see you happy and healthy," she wrote in another tweet. Finally, the rapper added: "I was there the day we sung you happy birthday for 6 years sober. I jumped a random persons fence in my PJs to come get you, even when you had no clue i was gonna pop up on your a**. lmao I am prepared to keep doing crazy sh*t b**ch. deal with it cause I love you." Earlier this week, multiple sources confirmed to ET that Demi had relapsed. "Her song is intense, but that's how she deals," one source said. "She has to be brutally honest and put it out there so that she's not burdened with holding on to her struggles privately."

Beyonce and JAY-Z take a night off in London
Date night for the Carters! On the heels of the release of their new album, "Everything Is Love," Beyonce and JAY-Z hit the town in London on Thursday, June 21, stopping by The Arts Club in the Mayfair section of the city, according to People. A smiling Bey looked low-key as her husband held her arm while she made her way into a car after their evening — one of a few nights off from their On the Run II tour. Despite the couple's busy schedule this summer, they've reportedly made plenty of time for family. Earlier this month, they enjoyed a "small celebration" for their twins, Rumi and Sir's first birthday, according to a People insider. "It's crazy that Rumi and Sir are already 1," said the source. "Beyoncé's mom [Tina Knowles Lawson] is traveling with the family and was, of course, there for the celebration. Everyone says they can't believe how quickly the past year has gone. … They're the cutest and doing very well. Beyoncé and Jay seem happy."

Kim Kardashian's kids don't know she's famous
To North West, Saint West and Chicago West, Kim Kardashian West is just mom. The mother of three sat down with ITV's "This Morning" this week during her visit to Europe and admitted that despite the fact that her face seems to be everywhere pop culture exists, her children have yet to register her celebrity status. "It's pretty intense, but at home I'm not known," she explained (via People). "My kids have no clue what's going on. So I don't really feel it — I spend most of my time at home." By the time North, 5, Saint, 2, and Chicago, 5 months, grow up, there might be fewer opportunities to bump into their mom's face online, too. "I don't take selfies anymore. I don't really like them," said Kim, who published an entire book of selfies back in 2015. "I just it's not all about sitting there taking selfies, I just like to live there in real life, I don't mind pictures but I'm just not on my phone like I used to be."
Liam Neeson gives up his theater seat to ensure other theatergoers can see
What a gent! When Liam Neeson headed over to the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre in New York City this week to check out Denzel Washington's "The Iceman Cometh," the 6-foot-four star plopped down in his front-of-house seat only to discover some of his more vertically challenged neighbors couldn't really see. "He felt badly blocking the view of some people behind him," an eyewitness later told the New York Post , "so he swapped his seat for one toward the back." Tall people props.
Seth Rogen's kind of over Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande
Pete Davidson has no other choice. At least that's his defense when it comes to gushing about his fiancee, Ariana Grande. The "SNL" star registered his latest vote for his lady as the most gorgeous person of all time on Thursday, June 20, when, in response to a backbend photo she posted, he wrote, "what the actual f—," (via E! News). Ariana's reply? "I love you." Pete's reply? "I love you more tho." Speaking on behalf of everyone reading the comments, Seth Rogen finally chimed in with the only appropriate response: "Guys seriously." Rather than take their PDA into a private space, Pete replied: "When ur getting married to the hottest girl in the world you tell me how you'd act." Sigh. A for effort, Seth.
Joe Jackson is reportedly near death
After months of illness, Michael Jackson's father, Joe Jackson, appears to be on his deathbed — and his children are having trouble getting access to him in his final days. That's according to Jermaine Jackson, who tells the Daily Mail Joe's team is keeping his family members from visiting him as his health continues to deteriorate. "No one knew what was going on — we shouldn't have to beg, plead, and argue to see our own father, especially at a time like this. We have been hurting. We were not being told where he was and couldn't get the full picture. Even from the doctor. My mother was worried sick," Jermaine says. "He's very, very frail, he doesn't have long. The family needs to be by his bedside — that's our only intention in his final days. It's what any family would want, but some people around him think they know better … and they don't." According to the Mail, Joe's wife, Katherine, and his daughter, Rebbie, eventually visited Joe last week. It's unclear if any of this other children or relatives have been able to do the same.
Justin Bieber stages wedding ring prank amid Hailey Baldwin reconciliation rumors
Belated April Fools? Amid increasingly hard to deny rumors he and Hailey Baldwin are back together, Justin Bieber had some fun with the paparazzi this week by sliding a wedding band-looking ring on a certain left finger before making his way around town with Hailey by his side. The pair dated briefly in 2015 and though they've since said they're just friends, their recent outings in Miami and beyond haven't exactly put a lid on rumors to the contrary. The two are not, however, married — at least not according to TMZ, whose sources say the ring was a prank.
Selma Blair celebrates two years of sobriety
Congrats are in order for Selma Blair, who marked a major milestone this week. "Two years sober," she wrote on Instagram on Thursday, June 21, sharing a photo of herself wearing a party hat before a white cake. "Two years feeling everything and nothing. Two years of extreme gratitude and humility and grace," she continued. "I thank the lord and my friends," Blair said. "I prayed for a miracle at my lowest points. I am a living miracle. Thank you. Thank you. #birthdaygirl #almost46 #summersolstice #grace."
Amy Adams stands up for her 'Sharp Objects' stand-in after accidental wake-up call
Not everyone gets the all-star treatment in Hollywood. Amy Adams was reminded of that truth while shooting HBO's "Sharp Objects," which she stars in and executive produces. In the script, Amy's character is badly scarred, which means both she and her stand-in require similar prosthetic scars. "She was fantastic," Amy tells THR, "and she also put up with a lot 'cause she wasn't getting the sort of catharsis from the performance and she wasn't treated the same way I'm treated. And I've never experienced this before but, because we looked so much alike, at one point somebody grabbed me really hard and pulled me. I went, 'What's going on?' And they're like '(Gasp) You're not Reb!' I went into producer [mode] and I was like, 'You will not handle her like that.'" Ultimately, the situation was one of many in which Amy hopes she can speak up for those whose voices may be less likely to be heard for whatever reason. Asked about her "American Hustle" costar, Jennifer Lawrence's revelations about pay disparity on the film, Amy said she wanted to hold back on addressing the issue until she's clear on the nature of the gender wage gap across other industries, too. "I know what my truth is, I know what I fight for and the things I let go of based on them saying, 'Take it or leave it,'" she said. "As much as I love Jennifer Lawrence, she doesn't need me to be her voice. She has her own voice. And if I'm going to use my voice to talk about pay discrepancy, it's going to be for women who don't have the same platform as me."
