Miley Cyrus and Kaitlynn Carter have reportedly moved in together
Miley Cyrus and her rumored girlfriend Kaitlynn Carter are reportedly now sharing a home. "They live together and are very happy," a source close to the singer tells People, adding that she's "doing great" and "moving on," presumably from her soon-to-be ex-husband, Liam Hemsworth. Earlier this month, the longtime couple announced they were taking time apart after 10 years together. Liam has since filed for divorce, a move that left Miley "disappointed," according to People, in spite of the romance that appears to have blossomed with Kaitlynn, who recently split from her husband, Brody Jenner. Addressing the end of her marriage and rumors about her relationship with Kaitlynn last week, Miley assured fans on Twitter that she's now "the happiest and healthiest" she's ever been and slammed trolls who'd accused her of cheating on Liam with Kaitlynn. "She seems to have no regrets," People's source says of Miley. "She loves being with Kaitlynn."

Speed may have been a factor in the car crash that left Kevin Hart hospitalized: Report
As Kevin Hart continues to recover from the serious injuries he sustained in a car accident over the weekend, police are looking into the possibility that the driver's speed caused him to lose control of the comic's 1970 Plymouth Barracuda. That's according to TMZ, which reports law enforcement sources are considering a tip from a "witness who was within earshot" of the crash on Sunday, Sept. 2, and who said it sounded as if Kevin's friend, Jared Black, peeled out shortly before skidding into a fence on Mulholland Highway and landing in a ditch off the side of the road. The car's roof was destroyed from the impact, crushing Jared and his fiancee. As of Tuesday, there was no update on their condition. Kevin reportedly underwent back surgery on Monday.

Bethenny, 48, documented her travels and disaster aid plans on social media throughout the day on Sunday, Sept. 2, and Monday, telling followers she was traveling to "assess" the situation as Dorian continues its crawl north towards Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas. She also made a few specific requests for help filling needs like "chainsaws, medical supplies and generators" for those affected by the powerful storm, and reminded followers that "100 percent" of donations to B Strong "goes to relief." "I pay my travel and expenses," she tweeted at one point, adding that "knowing exactly where your money is going is empowering" when it comes to disaster aid relief. By early Tuesday morning, Bethenny posted that she was "in a holding pattern bc of restricted air space," but that her team was "working on loading generators, chainsaws & medical equipment onto the sea planes" and that B Strong has "been endorsed by the Bahamian Consulate as a relief partner."

How Halsey's fans inspired her to ditch the 'homogenized' pop star mentality
If Halsey seems different in 2019 than she did last year, it could be thanks to a moment of clarity she had shortly after her split from G-Eazy in October. "I was doing 'Good Morning America' and I'm in a blonde wig and white patent-leather outfit, twirling around while I'm going through a heinous breakup," she recalls in Cosmopolitan's October cover story. "I look down and there are these two girls, one with pink hair, one with blue hair, septum piercings, cool as f—, still loving me, probably knowing what a weird time I'm going through," she says, referencing the end of her very public, 9-month-long relationship with the rapper. "I looked at them, looked at myself in my sparkly Britney Spears outfit, and went, 'Ohhh no, they deserve way better than this. If those girls can be that brave in who they are, then I owe them better than this homogenized bull—-,'" she continues, before noting, "But hey, if the worst thing that's happened to me so far is I wore dumb clothes and dated a s—– dude, I think I'm doing all right."
Renee Zellweger reacts to plastic surgery rumors
After taking a break from acting, Renee Zellweger made her first major public appearance in 2014 and was almost immediately criticized for her looks, which some thought had been altered by plastic surgery. In a new cover story for New York magazine, the now 50-year-old actress, who stars as Judy Garland in the forthcoming biopic "Judy," explained how the negative comments affected her. "It probably gives you a stomachache, asking me about that, doesn't it?" she tells the reporter, who's just acknowledged she hates to even raise the subject. "Well, because there's a value judgment that's placed on us," Renee continues. "As if it somehow is a reflection of your character — whether you're a good person or a weak person or an authentic person. And the implication that I somehow needed to change what was going on because it wasn't working. That makes me sad. I don't look at beauty in that way. And I don't think of myself in that way. I like my weird quirkiness, my off-kilter mix of things. It enables me to do what I do." She adds that she started her career "in my blue jeans and cowboy boots with my messy hair," asking, "why was I suddenly trying to fit into some mold that didn't belong to me?" Part of the answer to that question likely lies in what Renee now sees as having been depression, which she says translated at the time to not "taking care of" herself or being "healthy," things she was able to change thanks to her decision to step back, reeavluate and, as she tells New York, to "rest." "Judy" hits theaters Sept. 27.

Ariana Grande sues Forever 21 for allegedly stealing her likeness to promote their brands
Forever 21 has yet another potential financial problem. A few days after rumors surfaced indicating the company might file for bankruptcy, Ariana Grande sued the store for $10 million for allegedly using a lookalike model and photos of Ariana in promotional materials for its beauty line. Jezebel reports Ariana's lawyers filed documents on Sept. 2 claiming the company offered Ariana an endorsement deal with its beauty arm, Riley Rose. She declined the offer due to conflicts on pay, then noticed that as "Thank U, Next" gained popularity, the company "stole her name, likeness, and other intellectual property to promote their brands for free," because of Forever 21's "declining success." Images used by the company around that time seem to show photos of a young woman with an uncanny resemblance to Ariana posing with hair and clothing that match what Ariana wore in her video for "7 Rings."According to the lawsuit, Ariana says she asked the company to remove the Ariana-esque content but they did not.
