Joey Fatone files for divorce from his wife of nearly 15 years
Over the weekend, NSYNC singer Joey Fatone told Us Weekly he was "separated" from his high school sweetheart, Kelly Baldwin, and "going through a divorce." It turns out the divorce filing is relatively fresh. According to Page Six, Joey, 42, filed for divorce from his wife, also 42, on May 13. A few years back, Brides.com reported Joey and Kelly, a screenwriter, married in 2004 on New York's Long Island. The couple reportedly said "I do" before a huge guest list including Justin Timberlake, J.C. Chasez, Lance Bass, and Chris Kirkpatrick, Jamie Lynn Siegler and Nia Vardalos, all of whom were later treated to a performance by Smash Mouth. Joey and Kelly went on to have two daughters, Briahna Joely, now 18, and Kloey Alexandria, 9. But rift rumors began to circulate by 2013. Joey denied there were any problems at the time. By 2015, though, social media photos on Izabel Araujo's platforms indicated Joey had moved on and the two were dating.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are not rushing into wedding planning
After Orlando Bloom popped the question to Katy Perry earlier this year, they wasted no time sharing their happy news with the world. When it comes to planning their actual wedding, though, the couple are taking it slow. As Katy explained on "KISS Breakfast with Tom & Daisy" on Wednesday, June 5, there are more important concerns to be worked out than which dress, date and cake the two will choose. "Well yeah, one step at a time," Katy said when asked if they'd started the process. "Definitely trying to, like, lay the good emotional foundation for the lifetime of commitment, which is, like, a big deal, you know?" Both Katy and Orlando have been married before — Orlando shares a son with ex-wife ( and pal ) Miranda Kerr, while Katy was married to Russell Brand from 2010 until 2012.

Kris Jenner worries about Kourtney Kardashian's post-split relationship with Scott Disick
Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick have made a major effort to remain friends and co-parents to their three kids since they split. Kourtney's family, however, seems somewhat unconvinced everything is cool between them, given Scott's serious romance with Sofia Richie. A new preview of the next episode of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" shows Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian West and Khloe Kardashian looking aghast at an Instagram post from Scott in Mexico with both Kourtney and Sofia. "Oh my God. Did you see what Scott just posted?" Kim asks (via People). "It says, 'What more could a guy ask for? Three's company.' And it's him, Kourtney and Sofia in Mexico." Kris responds by saying the three of them on vacation together, albeit with Scott and Kourtney's kids, is "a little confusing." Reading the comments below the post, Kim says, "'Sofia is a young fool and Kourtney is an old fool. All of these people need therapy,'" to which Khloe replies, "we do," before Kris chimes back in. "Why in the world would she feel the need to go on vacation with Scott?" When Kim suggests it's about the kids, Kris says she worries there's more to it. "She has a lot of trips with the kids. She can pick up and go to Mexico any day of the week," Kris says. "My fear is that she can't make up her mind. She can't pick a paint color! That takes months. I'm just saying, because of her indecisiveness, it's going to bite her in the a—. And she's going to be the one deciding way too late that she is in love with Scott and wants to spend the rest of her life with Scott."Says Khloe: "She doesn't know what the f— she wants." Kris agrees. "Somebody is going to end up getting really hurt in this scenario," she says. "It took me a couple of years after Robert [Kardashian] and I got divorced but we became the best of friends. So I know a thing or two about being friendly with your ex and co-parenting. But it's still incredibly challenging, so I worry that somebody is going to get hurt."

Justin Bieber is fine after minor car accident
Justin Bieber was involved in a fender bender on his way to church on Wednesday, June 5, in Los Angeles. According to People, the singer was not driving but was riding in a black limo van when the driver had a minor accident with a white Hyundai sedan. No one was hurt. Although there was just minimal damage to the smaller vehicle, police pulled over to speak to both drivers before Justin was able to leave and head to church with his wife, Hailey Bieber. The couple are rumored to be considering a date in September for a second, larger wedding after their courthouse ceremony last fall. Justin's reportedly still working on issues related to depression and anxiety in the meantime. "It seems his treatment has helped him a lot," a source recently told People, adding that his therapy has "changed the way he thinks" and he's now able to focus on "taking one day at a time" rather than thinking too far ahead and becoming overwhelmed.
Margot Robbie hates being associated with one word more than any other
Margot Robbie is many things — "bombshell" is not one of them, as she assures Vogue readers in the magazine's July issue. The 28-year-old "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" star cringes when the Vogue reporter points out how often the word is associated with her. "I hate that word. I hate it — so much," she says. "I feel like a brat saying that because there are worse things, but I'm not a bombshell. I'm not someone who walks in a room and the record stops and people turn like, 'Look at that woman.' That doesn't happen. People who know me, if they had to sum me up in one word I don't know what that word would be, but I'm certain it would not be bombshell." So what is she instead? By her own estimation, a "carnivore" who seems not to be enjoying her attempts at "meatless Mondays," and a producer whose new production company, LuckyChap Entertainment, is focused on creating interesting, female-driven stories. By that token, Margot, who says she wrote to Quentin Tarantino expressing interest in working with him prior to being cast as Sharon Tate in his new film, hedges a bit when asked about the implications of having a woman-centric company while starring in a movie made by a director who admits he spit on and choked Uma Thurman — and made her do a stunt that could have killed her on the set of "Kill Bill." Uma has since said she'd work with Quentin again and Quentin has called the stunt one of the "biggest regrets" of his life. Asked how she feels about that potential conflict, Margot says she did consider people might think about it. "I don't know how to say what I feel about it, because I'm so grateful to be in a position of power and to have more creative control when that is embraced and encouraged now," Margot admits. "At the same time, I grew up adoring movies that were the result of the previous version of Hollywood, and aspiring to be a part of it, so to have those dreams come true also feels incredibly satisfying. I don't know. Maybe I'm having my cake and eating it too. …" "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" hits theaters on July 26.
Nick Jonas credits Sophie Turner with Jonas Brothers reunion
When Nick Jonas started dating Sophie Turner in 2016, it wasn't just a girlfriend he added to his life. It was his brothers — and their band. Speaking to Harper's Bazaar (via E! News), the singer said Sophie deserves some credit for reuniting the three, who had called it quits in 2013. "At some point [the band] go so dysfunction that we didn't even let in outside writers. We didn't have a producer. We didn't have a table. We were like, 'We're good with this.' Not to speak of memes, but it was like that dog and the burning house: 'This is fun,'" he recalls, adding that the band's split was not positive. "It was like, 'F— this. And f— you guys. I'm going to go figure out what's next for me and this will never happen again.'" He pursued his own project, DNCE, and found he couldn't even play old Jonas Brothers songs at that point. Dating Sophie, whom he married this year in Las Vegas, changed all of that. "It encouraged me to see she had such a great relationship with her brothers," he says. "That was really a big thing for me to be able to look at, and say, 'I gotta get my s–t together.'" The band has since released a pair of singles and is getting ready to release a a full album and go on tour. "It felt like the appetite was out there. That didn't mean it would be easy. I've been saying, over and over, 'I'm so glad it worked. By no means can we hang out and ride the wave. We're going to have to keep pushing. But this could have gone terribly wrong," he says. "We're grateful the pieces came together."
Ja Rule still thinks the Fyre Festival was a good idea — except for those tents
The Fyre Festival — that $12,000-plus stuff of nightmares that left attendees stranded on a beach without enough food, running water or shelter (oh yeah, and no music) in 2017 — is the hot mess that keeps on giving, If by "giving," you mean giving proof Ja Rule may be delusional. Ja appeared on "The Breakfast Club" in New York City on Wednesday, June 6, and got candid about what went wrong with the event that ended up being the subject of two documentaries, neither of which were favorable, though Ja said on the air he still thinks the festival was a good idea. He also admitted he has seen neither film, according to Jezebel. "The biggest problem to me was the tents …," Ja asserted in his radio interview this week, seemingly unmoved by the fact no one performed at the "festival" at the end of the day. "When I see them, I'm like, 'Yo, what the f—- are we doing with these tents? These are not the tents that were in the drawings,'" he continues. "I was told—now, you gotta understand something […] I was told, 'Ja, these tents are… We sent out emails to everyone and these are the tents that everybody is sleeping in—they know that.' … When [people] landed, they were like, 'What the hell are these?' And that's when all hell broke loose." As for the fraud claims, Ja sounded irritated his team used that word. "My employees are on [the documentaries], talking about, 'This is fraud,' and this, that, and the third. And I'm like, hold the f— up… This is not fraud. Maybe false advertising. Maybe. But not fraud. Fraud is the intention of not ever putting on a festival. [As if], me and Billy sat somewhere and said [rubs hands together], 'Let's see what we gon' do guys..,'" he said, Ultimately, Ja noted, investors "know the purity of Ja Rule." And that's why he's working another festival.
Drake trolls Warriors' Klay Thompson after Raptors win
Toronto Raptors superfan Drake was clearly feeling a little superior after his hometown team beat the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 on Wednesday, June 5, in Oakland, California, in spite of a stab his rival team took during warm-ups. The Blast reports Steph Curry and the Warriors, who have mostly tolerated the rapper's courtside antics so far during the playoffs and finals, prepared for their third face-off against the Raptors to the soundtrack of Pusha T's "Story of Adidon." That's the dis track that sparked a long feud between Drake and Pusha by revealing Drake had a secret child. When the Raptors took the Warriors down, 123 – 109, putting them up by 1 in the series, Drake responded by posting a photo of injured shooting guard/forward Klay Thompson, shirtless and possibly drunk, surrounded by ladies. "Stay Golden my friends …," Drake captioned the shot, "goodnight."
Jada Pinkett Smith reveals porn focused 'Red Table Talk' 'was a TMI moment'
Since her series premiered on Facebook watch last May, Jada Pinkett Smith has repeatedly put herself in awkward situations for the sake of her "Red Table Talk" viewers. Her most recent episode, for example, centered around Jada's acknowledgment that she once had an "unhealthy relationship with porn." She opened up the discussion about pornography and how it can harm intimate relationships, among other things, to her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Jones and her teenage daughter, Willow Smith. "I must say that that particular show was a TMI moment," she said on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Wednesday, June 5, according to ET. "There were a lot of women, part of our production team and a lot of friends of ours, that have had problems with their mates in their relationships because of pornography. So we decided to tackle that issue at the red table. But, I must say, I learned a little bit too much about my mother and surely about my daughter. I was like, for the first time, I never thought that I, personally, would have a TMI moment at the red table and that was the show. I'm very inquisitive like that," she continued. Jada went on to say when Willow was "10 or 11," they looked at Willow's Tumblr together and Jada discovered Willow was looking at pornography. "We had to have a discussion then," she said. the discussions are slated to continue with an upcoming "Red Table Talk" episode about polyamory, which Jada, Adrienne and Willow started talking about because Willow was following a "throuple" on Instagram. "She became very curious about this whole polyamory thing," Jada said. Asked if she thought Willow might consider a polyamorous relationship, Jada didn't discount the possibility: "Listen, she's 18. Who the heck knows what's going to go down?"
Ellen Pompeo gets candid about 'toxic work environment' on 'Grey's Anatomy'
Today, Ellen Pompeo can thank "Grey's Anatomy" for a paycheck that makes her the highest-paid actress on TV. It was a long road to get there, though, and she's now opening up about why she initially "wanted off the bus" at times. Describing the show's "serious, serious culture problem" in a new interview with Variety, Ellen says the first decade on set involved "very bad behavior" and a "really toxic work environment." She welcomed a child during Season 6, though, and decided she needed to correct the situation. "That's when things really started to change for me because I had someone other than myself to think about," she says. Another change came after the tenth season. "We had some big shifts, in front of the camera, behind the camera. Then it became my goal to turn that set around," she says. Ellen never reveals the specifics about who or what changed, but Vulture points out Patrick Dempsey left the following year. "Shonda Rhimes and I decided that we want to rewrite the ending of this story, and we want to turn the page and start a new chapter and turn the culture around behind the curtain," Ellen recalls. "We brought in Debbie Allen as our EP, and we made some changes, and we had to reimagine what behind the scenes at 'Grey's Anatomy' looked like." Then there was the issue of gender. With Patrick out, Ellen says the prevailing theory was that the "show could not possibly go on without the male lead." Her response was to make it a personal "mission to prove that it could."
