Is Drake on the verge of being a father? A retired porn star has claimed she's pregnant — and that the rapper is the father. According to a May 3 TMZ report, Sophie Brussaux maintains she got pregnant when she was hanging with Drake in the Netherlands in late January — they were photographed together during that time. She claims she told Drake about her pregnancy and that he demanded she get an abortion. Drake's team is skeptical that the child is his. "This woman has a very questionable background. She has admitted to having multiple relationships. We understand she may have problems getting into the United States. She's one of many women claiming he got them pregnant," his rep told TMZ. "If it is in fact Drake's child, which he does not believe, he would do the right thing by the child."

Trying to be civil
For the first time since he and Angelina Jolie split, Brad Pitt addressed their divorce. In an interview with GQ Style that was released on May 3, Brad said he won't let things get ugly between him and his estranged wife when it comes to custody of their six children. "I just refuse," he said. "And fortunately my partner in this agrees. It's just very, very jarring for the kids, to suddenly have their family ripped apart." He also said he wants things to remain civil with his famous ex. "I see it happen to friends," he said. "I see where the one spouse literally can't tell their own part in it, and is still competing with the other in some way and wants to destroy them and needs vindication by destruction, and just wasting years on that hatred. I don't want to live that way." In the wide-ranging chat, he also revealed that he quit drinking. "I was boozing too much," he said. "It's just become a problem. And I'm really happy it's been half a year now, which is bittersweet, but I've got my feelings in my fingertips again."

Drinking before accident?
"The Bachelor" star Chris Soules wants his felony charge — leaving the scene of an accident that results in death — dismissed. His lawyers argue that he called 911 and rendered aid to the victim until help arrived. Prosecutors, though, are in no hurry to do any such thing, and they even dropped a bombshell of their own this week. On May 1, they filed court documents that said Chris bought booze just before causing the fatal tractor crash on April 24. In the docs, they said Chris had "empty and partially consumed open alcoholic beverages located in and around his vehicle that he was seen purchasing at a convenience store shortly before the accident."

He later said, "We were told to keep it a secret, and we're not great at that, so it's funny because I sent a text to some of my close, close friends and co-workers. Responses were this from people who know me well: 'You're engaged! You're having a baby! You're coming out of the closet!'" The show has been officially renamed "Live With Kelly and Ryan."

Miley Cyrus opened up to Billboard magazine this week about her sexuality, saying she's a "gender-neutral, sexually fluid person." Although she's planning a wedding with fiance Liam Hemsworth, she says she's "super open, pansexual." "I'm with a straight dude. But he's always like, 'Well, don't call me that!'" Miley said in the magazine's cover story, which was published on May 3. "I ask him sometimes, 'Do you like being a boy?' And he's like, 'I don't really think about it.' And that's crazy to me, because I think about being a girl all the time. I'm always like, 'It's weird that I'm a girl, because I just don't feel like a girl, and I don't feel like a boy. I just feel like nothing.' So when someone's too masculine, that really grosses me out." Miley also revealed that she'd recently stopped smoking marijuana.
