Khloe Kardashian's Cleveland plans seem to be up in the air
It's been six months since Khloe Kardashian's boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, was caught in a cheating scandal just as the reality star was about to give birth to their first child. The Cleveland Cavaliers player ended up relocating to Los Angeles with Khloe and their daughter, True, for the summer. Now that his season is starting back up, though, it remains unclear where Khloe plans to spend the next few months. Conflicting reports about whether she'll return to Cleveland, along with her series of cryptic social media posts, have fans even more confused. An insider recently told People Khloe's been "very happy to be with her family in Los Angeles" for the summer, adding that "it seems she isn't moving back right now." Us Weekly's hearing different information. A source tells the tab Khloe "is still planning on" reuniting with Tristan in Cleveland for "a big chunk" of his basketball season. The same also acknowledges that she's starting to have "doubts" about her future with him. A second source notes "things have been extremely strained" between Khloe and Tristan lately and she's "being extremely cautious about uprooting her entire life for [him] again." This week on her Instagram Story, Khloe shared a post of clouds, seemingly taken from a plane, adding to the confusion over where she may be headed with True. "As for Tristan," another insider tells People, "things are still quite up in the air between them."
Catherine Hardwicke: Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's chemistry was so strong she had to warn him she was underage
Turns out there was so much "electricity" between "Twilight" stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart from the moment they started working together, the franchise's director, Catherine Hardwicke, felt compelled to give Rob, then 21, a little warning about his then-17-year-old costar. Ten years after fans fell in love with Edward and Bella on the big screen, Catherine recalls seeing Rob and Kristen clear connection during a "chemistry read" she held to make sure whomever was cast in the lead roles had an almost palpable "electricity" between them. "It was funny because they were both pretty shy and kind of a little bit nervous and awkward," the director recently told People. "I said, 'OK, let's go do the biology scene where you guys first meet.' So we went to my kitchen table for that scene and you could see pretty quickly that they were vibing off of each other. …And I remember I told Rob, separately, I went, 'Listen, man, you gotta remember that she's under 18 and in our country, you can get in trouble!" she said, cracking up with laughter. "He went, 'OK, OK, jeez, calm down!'" Rob and Kristen did go on to fall for one another off-screen and dated for a number of years before Kristen was outed for making out with Rupert Sanders, who was directing her in "Snow White and the Huntsman" at the time. The two called it quits in 2013. Earlier this year, they reunited briefly at the Chateau Marmont, where they joined mutual friends to celebrate Lily Rose-Depp's birthday. Rob said as far back as 2014 that the two were still in touch.

Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher cheer on the Dodgers at series-tying playoff game
Two of Hollywood's most adorable baseball fans turned up at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on Tuesday, Oct. 16, to cheer on their home team as they fought the Milwaukee Brewers for the NLCS title. Watching the game in matching denim a la 2001-era Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher chatted with pals as they zoned in on what turned out to be a 13-inning long, bench clearing showdown that brought the series to a 2-2 tie. The couple, who announced the Dodgers lineup during the playoffs two years ago, have been making regular appearances at ball games for years — a habit that's probably working for Ashton, given his recent admission to Conan O'Brien that he has settled how to deal with the hair loss he's been experiencing lately. "I've established myself as a baseball cap wearing individual," he teased during a June appearance on "Conan." "When it does go, you're not gonna know that it's gone," he added, "because I'm just going to have a ball cap on."
Elle King opens up about battle with PTSD, substance abuse after 'destructive marriage'
After a longer than expected wait, Elle King is back with "Shake the Spirit," a soulful sophomore album that she's said was made with the goal of "shaking [herself] awake" from the pain of an exceedingly difficult year in which she ended an allegedly abusive marriage. "Last year almost broke me … but I'm stronger now because of it," Elle tells People in a new interview. That year included a situation in which Elle's ex, Andrew Ferguson, was arrested for domestic violence, while the singer's PTSD contributed to substance abuse issues. "I was in a destructive marriage. I was at the lowest point in my life. … I was not well. I couldn't look people in the eyes. I literally couldn't leave my house for weeks at a time," she recalls. "There's two ways out. You can take the bad way out or you can get help. I got help because I knew that I have felt good in my life and I knew I could get there again … If I didn't get help, I probably wouldn't be … I don't know. I don't wanna think like that. I think that reaching out saved my life. I don't wanna think of any other outcome that could have happened. I feel like the more I talk about it, maybe it could reach somebody … reach somebody that feels alone." Before she began talking about what she was going through, she says she was "partying so hard to numb emotions that I couldn't handle at the time." Eventually, she decided that approach would not work. "I realized it was just prolonging the inevitable of dealing with them. And what you have to do, unfortunately, is just feel them, and that sucks," she admits. "I thought that by doing drugs it would buy me time to feeling better. And when that wasn't working, I just realized I was in this other cycle, and that I was creating it myself. And I realized I needed to cut all the darkness out of my life." She hasn't cut all the substances out of her life — she says she still drinks and smokes weed — but says it's "different" than it was: "… it's not having fun out of pain." "Shake the Spirit is due out Friday, Oct. 19.
Jada Pinkett Smith reveals why she calls Will Smith her 'life partner' instead of her husband
For Jada Pinkett Smith, change and growth is an important part of marriage — or, as she Will Smith now call their union, "life partnership." "I needed a different form to dissolve all the expectations that I had of a marriage," Jada explains to People. "I needed to do that to see Will outside of husband and see him as a human being. … "We have all these expectations. 'Oh, this is what a husband is. This is what a wife is.' I started dissolving all the ideas and expectations and labels." That shift is the focus of part of her discussion with her husband of nearly 21 years when her "Red Table Talk" Facebook series returns next week. "Will comes on the show for two episodes, and we talk about redefining our relationship, going from calling ourselves married to becoming life partners," she says. "I felt like there was a way to speak about that that was open and transparent. But there are still aspects that are private!"
Laverne Cox has 'a lot of survivor's guilt' about her success
Ever since she began wowing audiences as Sophia on "Orange Is the New Black," Laverne Cox has been racking up "firsts" when it comes to being openly transgender in Hollywood. She was the first openly trans actor to be nominated for a Primetime Emmy, the first openly trans woman to win a Daytime Emmy as an Executive Producer — she was even the first openly trans actor to get her own wax figure at Madame Tussauds. All those accolades have left the vocal LGBT advocate feeling somewhat conflicted. In a new Q&A with Vulture for the website's Women and Power series, Laverne admits she's often felt ambivalent about the power that's come with her success. "The month I was on the cover of Time magazine, five trans women were killed. So I felt a lot of survivor's guilt. A feeling like, 'Why me?'" she says. "I felt an obligation, so that year I said yes to a lot of things. But there were a lot of folks who wanted to invalidate me, scapegoat me, and make me a representative of all trans people. I never purported to be that, and so I just had to be really careful about what I said and what I did." She went on to say constantly talking about violence against the transgender community put her "in a dark place" for a long time, making her fearful for her own safety, among other things. "I deserve to live a good life," she says. "But I still have the trauma." When it comes to occupying a celebrity space from that position, Laverne says "it's important for me not to get caught up in thinking I'm so fabulous." She also keeps in mind that if she attends a march or rally and ends up getting arrested, her experience in prison, for example, will be very different from that of a straight white male. "The point of that is that I have to know that my contribution is going to be different from other people," she says. "Power is being clear about who you are."
Keira Knightley gets mistaken for some pretty random celebs
Um … "A" for effort? It seems folks have serious trouble figuring out exactly who Keira Knightley is when they bump into her in public, a revelation she shared this week on "The Late, Late Show" when James Corden asked, "Do you ever get mistaken for other actors?" The "Colette" star wasted no time replying, "all the time," before ticking off some of the celebs she's been mistaken for. "I've been chased through an airport as Natalie Portman," Keira began, according to People. "I've been chased through a park as Kate Winslet. Quite a few people have come over to me to ask me to say hello to Daniel Craig for them because they think I'm Rachel Weisz," she continued, pointing out that last one was a "lovely" comparison. Of course, both Keira and Natalie appeared in "Star Wars," and Rachel is at least a brunette. One in particular came as more of a shock. When Keira told James she's been mistaken for Britney Spears, he sounded like he didn't believe her. "Shut up," he gasped. Keira explained: "[It was] in L.A., and I was in a shop. I don't know. It was a weird one. I had my picture as Britney Spears," she recalled. "I would love to see that person with their friends," James cracked. "Guys, I just met Britney Spears. Look.' And they go, 'Oh my god, no you didn't. You met Keira Knightley.'" Ultimately, Keira said she doesn't mind the confusion. "I quite enjoy it, though. I'm much more polite, I think, when people think that I'm somebody else," she said. James retorted that he'd never take it that well, assuring Keira he would not be polite in those scenarios. "If someone came up and went, 'Wow, Matt Damon's put on a few pounds. Will you sign this?'" he joked, "I'd just be like, 'Leave me alone.'"
Justin Bieber puts on a happier face amid reports he's 'conflicted' about Selena Gomez
It's been a rough week for newlyweds Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin, but the couple looked in better spirits Tuesday, Oct. 16, when they stepped out for breakfast at Joan's in West Hollywood, according to People. Justin's reportedly been struggling with news that his ex, Selena Gomez, is back in treatment for anxiety and depression; it probably doesn't help matters that some reports claim his engagement and courthouse marriage to Hailey "threw [Selena] off guard" when she was in the hospital dealing with complications related to Lupus. If Justin's still "conflicted and confused" about his worries for Selena, he wasn't showing it at Joan's — or at Patys the following day. Selena, meanwhile, is reportedly "feeling better" already as she continues her treatment.
Robin Wright says the 'House of Cards' finale is 'beyond' shocking

The season will not bring Kevin Spacey's character back, due to a sexual misconduct scandal.
Lady Gaga's rumored engagement ring may be worth more than $1M
What's the deal with that ring Lady Gaga's been flaunting on her left ring finger since the end of last year, you ask? Page Six has a few answers. The massive sparkler, rumored to be an engagement ring from Gaga's agent beau, Christian Carino, is "either a pink diamond or a pink sapphire," according to Brilliant Earth VP Kathryn Money. The engagement ring specialist says if Lady G.'s bauble is a pink diamond, it's "very rare" and likely worth "over $1 million." If it's a sapphire, she says it would have cost Christian $100,000 or more. According to Page Six, the mixed-metals setting and white and yellow gold band "reflect the pop icon's eclectic personal style."
