Blake Shelton reportedly put Miranda Lambert 'through hell'
Miranda Lambert has said she used the process of writing her album, "The Weight of These Wings," to help her deal with the end of her marriage to Blake Shelton. That doesn't mean she's completely healed from the experience, though. As she told HITS Daily Double earlier this month, her high-profile divorce made her extremely lonely. Watching Blake fall for Gwen Stefani within months of their split didn't help matters. "She wears her heartbreak like a badge," a source tells InTouch. "The cold-blooded way Blake broke her heart, cut her out of his life and shoved his romance with Gwen in her face is something that will scar her forever. Blake really put her through hell, and she's letting people know it." According to InTouch's insider, Miranda didn't just lose Blake when he called time on their relationship, which was suffering from the demands of their careers and the stress of multiple cheating allegations; she also lost her comfort zone in their hometown of Tishomingo, Okla., where Miranda ran a boutique and a bed and breakfast during their marriage. "In a matter of days, she was sent packing. She didn't know what hit her. She became more distraught when rumors spread that she'd cheated with a number of men and Blake did nothing to stop it. It was a nightmare for her," the source continues, adding that the singers' tour schedules drive them apart. "They became strangers. She lost trust in him, and he became suspicious of her. She knew the marriage was in trouble but somehow she always thought they could come together and save it." Although he reportedly called the final shot, telling Miranda it was over, Blake felt he "hit rock bottom" from the "devastating" situation, which he recently recounted to Willie Geist. Now that Miranda's opening old wounds with her new music, a source tells InTouch Blake "feels like he's being villainized" and " is done with Miranda writing and talking about the divorce." But Miranda apparently has no plans to stop opening up about their relationship and how it ended. "Blake's a big part of her confessional songs and is going to be for a long time to come," says the insider, "and if Blake's reputation takes a beating along the way, he's getting what he's long deserved." While Blake has been happily dating Gwen for nearly two years, Miranda and Anderson East called it quits earlier this year. She's reportedly now dating country singer Evan Felker of the Turnpike Troubadours.

Demi Lovato 'felt like she let her fans down' with relapse
Over the weekend, Demi Lovato treated fans to a rendition her new song, "Sober," at the Rock in Rio Festival in Portugal. It was the first time she'd performed the confessional lyrics — written about her recent relapse after six years of sobriety — live, and the experience drove her to tears. "Demi felt terrible about herself and was really depressed," a source tells UsWeekly. Another source says the singer "felt like she let her fans down and that she owed them the truth." Both insiders agree Demi's in a better place now and has recommitted to staying sober. "She's going to meetings again, going to the gym and taking care of herself," says the first source. Demi also acknowledged the emotional weight she felt in performing the new music live. "Tonight I took the stage, a new person with a new life," she tweeted after the show in Portugal. "Thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout this journey. It will never be forgotten."

Leaving Tinseltown? Selena Gomez is reportedly over Hollywood
The break Selena Gomez took from the spotlight in 2016 helped the singer get back on solid ground, mentally, emotionally and physically. Now, with her close friend Taylor Swift back in action after an extended and healthy hiatus from the public sphere, Selena may be angling to ditch Hollywood again. "She says she's done with the Hollywood life and all the fakeness that surrounds it. She's leaving L.A. She just wants to get away from it all," one insider tells Life&Style, citing factors like the celeb status-fueled pressure to be perfect. "Taylor's been raving to Selena that it was one of the best decisions she's ever made," the source adds. Earlier this month, Variety reported she put her newly acquired Studio City bungalow on the market alongside the Ft. Worth, Texas, home she's been trying to sell since 2016. "Selena's still deciding where to move," says the Life&Style source, "but [her native] Texas is an option. She'd love to live in a huge farmhouse and build a studio so she can continue writing and working on her music." In the meantime, the insider says, she's thinking of traveling in Europe and Asia. If she does move, there's likely more than just a general distaste for Hollywood behind it. She endured yet another split from Justin Bieber this year and he's now pretty clearly dating Selena's former friend, Hailey Baldwin, a situation that's left Selena "traumatized," according to the source. There's also the matter of the nasty online attack of her looks launched by Dolce & Gabbana co-founder Stefano Gabbana. "Selena was so hurt," says the insider. Finally, given her battles with lupus, anxiety and depression — not to mention, the kidney transplant she had in 2017 — the source says Selena feels she can be healthier if she gets away from Los Angeles. "It's hard to steer clear of the party scene there. Selena's determined to avoid temptation. It'll be easier if it's not in her face," says the source. "Hollywood made her a star, but it's also been hellish for her, mentally and physically," the insider adds. "Selena needs a fresh start and that's exactly what she's going to get."

Kelly Clarkson's mansion remains on the market after more than a year
Kelly Clarkson's definitely having more success in the music world than she is in the land of real estate lately. In March 2017, the singer and her husband, Brandon Blackstock, listed their Tennessee mansion for $8.75 million. According to the Daily Mail, it has yet to sell. The couple bought the gorgeous — and massive — lakefront home in 2012 for $2.86 million. They later renovated it and returned with their kids in 2013. The fancy pad features seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and three half bathrooms, plus a pair of long, luxurious front foyer staircases, all of which sit on four acres of gated land about 45 minutes outside of Nashville.
Kim Kardashian West, Kris Jenner wish Khloe Kardashian a very HBD
The birthday love for Khloe Kardashian started pouring in early on Wednesday, June 27, when the new mom turned 34. "Happy birthday to my bunny @khloekardashian!!" Kris Jenner wrote on Instagram, sharing an undated photo of the two of them together. "Beautiful, smart, kind and the strongest person I know, you amaze me every single day. You are truly an angel on earth, my beauty, and I am so proud of you. You bring laughter and love to everyone around you. You lift people up with your positivity and your passion. This year we celebrate you being a new mommy, and all the amazing blessings that brings. To watch you with baby True brings me the greatest joy. I love you to the moon and back!!

"Happy Birthday to one of my favorite souls on this planet! @khloekardashian," Kim posted. "This year you have shown strength like none other. I admire you for always following your heart.

Cardi B hits the dance floor at her baby shower
Cardi B — and the bun in her oven — are probably catching up on some much needed rest on Wednesday, June 27, after being feted with a late-night baby shower-slash-dance-party on Tuesday. Video clips shot by Cardi's husband, Offset, and published on TMZ show the mom-to-be dressed in a slinky white dress as she shakes her thang on an impromptu dance floor with friends. The theme for the pink-accented party was reportedly "Bardi Shower: A Bronx Fairytale," which would explain the "Bardi Baby Bodega" that had been set up with drinks, dessert and plenty of goodies for the rapper's first child (though there was no sign of the battery-powered Bentley on her registry.) In the background of the clip, a library full of baby books is visible. Cardi's due in July.
Bella Hadid crashes a NY prom clad in Juicy velour
"Why is Bella hadid in my town?and at prom?" That's what one student from Oceanside High School in New York asked on Twitter on Monday, June 25, as photos of Bella posing with kids apparently on their way to a late senior prom began circulating on social media. According to People, Bella had been in the area for a photoshoot and appears to have been invited to hop on the bus when she bumped into the prom-bound party machine. While there were plenty of alternately breathless and confused tweets about her sudden appearance (i.e.: "BELLA HADID IS ON MY SCHOOLS PROM BUS I CANT STOP LAUGHING"), most of the outlets that picked up pics from the model's seemingly random appearance (via BellaHNews) fixated on one particular, non-high school related detail: Bella's black Juicy velour tracksuit circa 2000. While there's been no info as to what exactly put Bella in contact with the promgoers, People checked Oceanside's website and the senior prom was indeed listed for Monday, June 25.
Donald Glover narrates new Time's Up PSA
Donald Glover is throwing his support behind the Time's Up movement by narrating a new, animated PSA video. Directed by Rashida Jones, the video focuses on "workplace rules of engagement," with the star clarifying some "frequently asked questions about sexual harassment" on the job, according to the New York Post. After the video offers solid "no" to questions like, "Is it OK to greet your coworker with a deep, full body hug or mouth kiss?" and "Is it OK to tell your coworker that you think they look sexy in their pants?" it notes that merely thinking someone looks sexy — and keeping it to yourself — is not a problem. The video goes on to tackle situations "where things start to get confusing," such as whether it's OK to ask out a coworker. Before doing so, Donald urges viewers to think about "what kind of power dynamic exists" and whether "you have a more secure job." Finally, he addresses the issue of complicity, explaining that a refusal to act when "you weren't making the inappropriate comments or doing the groping, but you've seen it and you've heard rumors," is not OK. As the video wraps up, Donald assures viewers that there's always more info that can be found on online, should questions remain. Just go to "www.dontpullyour*bleep*outatwork.obviously," he jokes, to clear things right up.

After a recent health scare forced her into the hospital earlier this month, Sarah Hyland has been given the greenlight to exercise again. "Workout before work," she wrote on Instagram Stories on Tuesday, June 26 (via UsWeekly).

It's been a while. Strong > skinny," she added in the post. The actress has shared no details about why she was in the hospital, but Us notes she had a kidney transplant back in 2012.
