Mariah Carey teased Nick Cannon about getting his ex pregnant
When Nick Cannon heard his ex, Mariah Carey, had been photographed getting cozy with her younger backup dancer, Bryan Tanaka, he seemingly gave the two a beach PDA lesson by posting a romantic, Nick-and-Mariah seaside pic from way back when. Now, it's apparently Mariah's turn. In a new interview with Power 106, nick revealed the singer was the first to contact him about news he's expecting a child with his ex, Brittany Bell. "She came at me first about it, so it was actually easier," he said, according to Us Weekly. "I don't know how she heard about it, but she called me, and she was funny with it. She was like, 'Mm-hmm, I heard about you out here in these streets.'" He added that the twins he shares with Mariah are "excited" about the baby — and that the child was not a mistake. . "I've always wanted five kids," he said. "Just because my marriage was over didn't mean I couldn't continue my family."

John Mayer denies shading Taylor Swift on her birthday
Taylor Swift turned 27 this week, and if her ex, John Mayer, was feeling happy for her, his Twitter feed sure didn't reflect it. "Tuesday, December 13 may be the lamest day of the year, conceptually," he posted, then deleted, according to E! News. When followers responded with the inevitable Taylor tie-in, John explained himself. "NOPE. No. Nuh-uh. People I am 39. I am deleting those tweets. Come right at me for doing so. Absolutely no shade," the singer posted. It wasn't long before that tweet went MIA as well. Perhaps noticing all the retweets it had gotten, however, John later reposted it, writing, "Looks like I shouldn't have deleted this tweet …" Taylor and John dated in 2009 when she was just 19 and he was 31. A year later, she released the not-so-positive "Dear John" about their relationship. He's said he was not a fan.
Leonardo DiCaprio hits Mexico with Nina Agdal after Trump meeting
Leonardo DiCaprio and his latest model arm-candy pal Nina Agdal ditched wintry New York for warmer climes this week, taking a trip to Mexico for a pre-holiday getaway. The actor, who stars with Ben Affleck and Elle Fanning in "Live By Night," was spotted taking a dip in the ocean in Cancun, although he and Nina are reportedly making nearby Tulum their homebase during their stay, according to the New York Post. Modelizing jokes aside, it's understandable if the environmental activist needed an escape: Last week, he met with Donald "climate change is a hoax" Trump to discuss ways in which supporting clean, renewable energy could create millions of jobs. The president-elect announced Oklahoma attorney general Scott Pruitt, a longtime denier of climate change, as his first pick to head up the EPA.
Kylie Jenner is now landlord to Rob Kardashian, Blac Chyna
It's a small world after all — even when sprawling mansions are involved. TMZ reports Kylie Jenner has rented her six bedroom, seven bathroom home in the Hidden Hills section of Los Angeles to her brother, Rob Kardashian, his fiancee, Blac Chyna, and their new baby daughter, Dream. The growing fam reportedly opted for Kylie's property because it's closer to Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian West and her kids than Chyna's house in Tarzana would have been. Meanwhile, birthday girl Nicki Minaj is having some real estate overlap with Kylie, too; the rapper recently settled into the $35 million beach front Turks and Caicos estate where Kylie celebrated her 19th birthday, courtesy of AirBnB.

Will Smith plotted to prank Naomie Harris
Pranks and torments. According to actor Jacob Latimore, those were the weapons of choice for Will Smith on the set of "Collateral Beauty." Speaking to the New York Post, Jacob revealed the "Fresh Prince" alum tried to have Naomie Harris deleted from every scene in the flick as a joke. "I think they did an edit where she was out of the movie, so she would bring all her family to the screening, like, 'I am in this new movie.' And then they'd show an edit where she wasn't there," Jacob recalled. Although Will never went through with it, Naomie noted Will's fun didn't stop with his deleting plan. "He would just torment me by making fun of me," she said. "He was like an older brother. He didn't [do that prank], but I'll get him back."
