Is Amanda Bynes pregnant? On March 17, both the troubled former child star and her fiancé, Paul Michael, announced on social media that they were expecting their first child together. They have since deleted the posts. According to reports, the posts contained a picture of an ultrasound with Amanda's name on it. "Baby on board!" her caption read (his said "Baby in the making"). On March 18, TMZ reported that because the former actress is still under a conservatorship overseen by her mother, if pregnant, she would likely lose custody of the child after it's born (her father and Paul would allegedly share custody). "I'm not confirming that Amanda is expecting and because of that it's premature for anyone to speculate about who would have custody of Amanda's unborn child," her lawyer told TMZ. Amanda is currently in treatment for mental health issues.

Positive COVID-19 test
The coronavirus has struck another A-lister. On March 16, Idris Elba announced that he has tested positive for COVID-19. "I feel OK, I have no symptoms so far but have been isolated since I found out about my possible exposure to the virus," he said on Twitter. Later, he hinted that he may have gotten exposed when he spent time with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's wife, Sophie, when they both attended a WE Day U.K. charity event on March 4. Canada's first lady had publicly announced that she'd tested positive. "The early testing is the way we need to approach this," Idris said, adding that he felt fine but a little more tired than usual. He also said he feared that his asthma put him in the "high category of most at risk." Other celebs who revealed they'd tested positive the same week as Idris include former Bond girl Olga Kurylenko, "Lost" actor Daniel Dae Kim, "Game of Thrones" stars Kristofer Hivju and Indira Varma, Prince Albert of Monaco and multiple NBA players including Kevin Durant.
Oprah Winfrey is alive and well and not behind bars. On March 17, Oprah's name was trending on social media. Why? Turns out that the online conspiracy group QAnon started an insane rumor that claimed Oprah was involved in a drug and child trafficking ring (yes, some people actually believed it). "Just got a phone call that my name is trending. And being trolled for some awful FAKE thing. It's NOT TRUE," she tweeted of the hoax. "Haven't been raided, or arrested. Just sanitizing and self distancing with the rest of the world. Stay safe everybody." QAnon, among other things, believes there's anonymous secret agent working in the government trying to overthrow President Donald Trump. The same group, by the way, claims Tom Hanks has been arrested in Australia and is using coronavirus as a coverup.

Facing family pressure
Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber's 20-year-old son, Presley Gerber, appeared to have gotten another tattoo on his face, but he later claimed the real-looking ink was fake — just an Instagram filter. Still, his parents are concerned that it's a "cry for help," an insider told E! News. On March 17, the model shared an image in which the Los Angeles Dodgers logo appeared inked on his cheek. This comes after he got the word "Misunderstood" tattooed under his eye. "It's tough for them to see and has caused great concern. They know these statements are some kind of cry for attention or help," a source close to Cindy and Rande told E! News. "But Presley is an adult and is finding his place. In a perfect world, this is not the way that they would choose for him to express himself. But they feel they have to be there for him and to support him as much as possible as he figures things out. They want him to be happy and to be who he is. It's a painful process and hard time, but they love him and are always there for him."

Out of the loop
Jared Leto was one of the last people in Hollywood to be concerned about the coronavirus pandemic… because he didn't know anything about it, as he was cut off off from news and technology for two weeks. "Wow. 12 days ago I began a silent meditation in the desert," he wrote on Instagram on March 16. "We were totally isolated. No phone, no communication etc. We had no idea what was happening outside the facility. Walked out yesterday into a very different world. One that's been changed forever. Mind blowing – to say the least." He added, "I'm getting messages from friends and family all around the globe and catching up on what's going on. Hope you and yours are ok. Sending positive energy to all. Stay inside. Stay safe."
