Sia has revealed that she's on the autism spectrum. The "Chandelier" singer made the declaration while appearing on "Rob Has a Podcast" with "Survivor" Season 44 finalist Carolyn Wiger. "I'm on the spectrum, and I'm in recovery and whatever — there's a lot of things," she said. "For 45 years, I was like … 'I've got to go put my human suit on.' And only in the last two years have I become fully, fully myself." Sia didn't detail when she was diagnosed, but the implication was that it was recently. While speaking of embracing herself, Sia continued, "Nobody can ever know and love you when you're filled with secrets and … living in shame, and when we finally sit in a room full of strangers and tell them our deepest, darkest, most shameful secrets, and everybody laughs along with us, and we don't feel like pieces of trash for the first time in our lives, and we feel seen for the first time in our lives for who we actually are, and then we can start going out into the world and just operating as humans and human beings with hearts and not pretending to be anything." The revelation comes two years after Sia's film "Music" drew backlash for its portrayal of people with autism.

Reporting has emerged regarding a terrifying attempted break-in at the home of Benedict Cumberbatch. The Daily Mail said the Marvel star and his family were home when a 35-year-old chef named Jack Bissell broke onto the $3.5 million North London property. "I know you've moved here, I hope it burns down," Jack reportedly shouted while tearing out one of the home's plants and throwing it against the garden wall. He also spit on Cumberbatch family intercom before ripping it off the building. Jack soon left while a terrified Benedict and his family stayed inside. Police tracked down the chef shortly after and found his DNA on the intercom. On May 10, the crook pleaded guilty to the break-in attempt and was given a fine and a three-year restraining order from the Cumberbatch family. It's not publicly known when the incident actually occurred.
Britney Spears might be headed to court again, but this time she'll be battling her ex-husband. The pop star's ex hubby, Kevin Federline, has recently said he plans to move to Hawaii this summer and wants to take their children, Sean Preston, 17 and Jayden James, 16, with him. To push this through, Kevin just needs Britney to sign off on the relocation, which he thinks should be a formality. However, Kevin's lawyer told TMZ that he's sent the letter to Britney's lawyer several times and has gotten no response. If Kevin's team continues to get the silent treatment, his lawyer will file legal documents asking for a move-away order. Kevin's team argues that this shouldn't be much of an issue, as he has 100% legal custody of the kids. Plus, he has 100% de facto physical custody, as Britney has not seen the boys in more than a year.
