Kendall Jenner's security team calls police over drone
Police returned to Kendall Jenner's home in the Hollywood Hills section of Los Angeles on Tuesday, April 11, this time to question a man flying a four-rotor drone on the street outside Kendall's property. TMZ reports security at the house contacted the LAPD out of concern following a robbery there that left Kendall out $200,000 worth of jewelry this year and last summer's alleged stalking incident, when a man followed her as she entered her driveway. This time, police let the guy go after talking to him and searching his trunk. Maybe he just wanted to give her a Pepsi (ahem).
Tyga handcuffed in Los Angeles during traffic stop
After being pulled over in Los Angeles, handcuffed and put into a police car this week, Tyga was let go with a traffic violation, according to E! News. He had been hanging out at Avenue Nightclub before he left in what he later told paparazzi was a new Mercedes G-Series. Cops reportedly stopped him for running a stop sign and driving without official license plates. They conducted a sobriety test on the rapper, but did so at the station, away from the frenzy of paparazzi. He passed. Asked why he was arrested, Tyga told camermen, "Because I have paper plates," adding that he "just bought" the car. Last year, he faced an arrest warrant over an unpaid debt to a jeweler.
Janet Jackson had the locks changed on her husband weeks before split
There may have been signs Janet Jackson and her husband Wissam Al Mana were nearing the end of their marriage before their split made headlines this month. While insiders have since said Janet was frustrated at Wissam for allegedly controlling things like the way she dressed, she reportedly made a more public move at her condo in New York that would potentially keep him out of her life. "She wanted the locks changed a few weeks ago, and no keys for him," a Page Six source says. News of the split came three months after the birth of their first child together.

Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt on why they're ready to start a family
In October, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are set to welcome their first child. As they told Us Weekly recently, Heidi's always had plans to start a family, but their lives after "The Hills" have busy (not to mention, full of drama) so they waited for things to calm down. When Heidi told Spencer, he recalled, she was stunned. "The look on her face, I can't even describe it. She was literally glowing. I thought she was about to say she made muffins or banana bread," said the reality star-slash-online-crystal-salesman, failing to explain the baking comment. (Maybe the magic crystals we imagine surround them at home give them both a permaglow.) Anyway, Heidi told her hubby of eight years she was pregnant. She cried. They embraced. "I was like, 'Whoa, that's way more exciting than banana bread! … Heidi has wanted to be a mom since the day I met her," Spencer said. "I wanted a baby three years ago. Spencer was a little hesitant, Heidi told Us. "Then one thing after another came up. We had work obligations, like 'Celebrity Big Brother' in the U.K., which I did not want to be pregnant for. I'm actually really thankful we waited. I thought I was ready in my twenties, but with everything we had going on, it just wouldn't have been a good situation for us." Spencer said he agreed. "It might never be the perfect time, so we said, 'Let's move forward,'" Heidi added. " We had all these conversations. We're older, we have more life experience. Nothing is holding us back." The couple have not been told the gender of their forthcoming new addition; Heidi is due Oct. 19.
Abigail Breslin clarifies the definition of consent amid Sexual Assault Awareness Month
News flash: "You are not obligated to have sex with someone that you're in a relationship with. Dating is not consent. Marriage is not consent." Abigail Breslin shared those words on Instagram this week, captioning the post, "I knew my assailant," in reference to the abuse she endured to highlight Sexual Assault Awareness Month, which continues through April. Teen Vogue points out "14 to 25 percent of women will be sexually assaulted by an intimate partner," a fact confirmed by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The organization also reports these attacks are much less likely to be reported — and more likely to include physical violence in addition to rape. Abigail, who has spoken out about her experience before, later tweeted about her gratitude for the response she got online. "So beyond thankful by the immense support regarding my IG post last night," she wrote. "I am so lucky to have all of you kind souls in my corner."
Amy Schumer weighs in on life without booze
Leave it to Amy Schumer to speak the truth — for better or occasionally, worse. In the cover story for InStyle's new issue, the "Trainwreck" star opens up about her own drinking habits. And while she's no trainwreck in real life, she's perfectly content to tell a magazine the real reason she doesn't really plan to give up booze anytime soon. "In the past couple years there have been times when I haven't drunk for months, she says (via Celebitchy). "What I find is I look so much better, feel amazing … and am so bored. Life isn't that fun. So I can feel really good for a while, but then it's one of the things that I look forward to, so until I am told 'You cannot do this anymore,' I'll probably continue to do it." That said, this is a comic who's also happy she's making a living from her sense of humor and wit, not the way she looks. That might explain her response to a query about whether she'd ever consider using filler: "I cannot imagine a moment when I will need filler for my face, as if it needs to be filled. Can we unfill this? Let's get an emptier."
Jemima Kirke on substance abuse and rehab: 'I use things as anesthesia'
Even after a handful of stints in rehab, Jemima Kirke has an untraditional way of thinking about her relationship with drugs and alcohol. "I didn't relate to [AA's] psychic need for the alcohol. I recognized it as a tool and I know how to use it as a tool," she told Anna David on her "Recover Girl" podcast (via E! News). "I'm not someone who drinks excessively but I will drink for a reason sometimes. It's a problem more than addiction. I think that's possible." She continued: "I just was a problem drinker and user and I liked to party. I don't know I just had, I mean it didn't look the way a lot of other people's looks. I didn't use during the day necessarily. I just went hard when I went. I would do a lot of three-day benders. That was like a party. That was normal. It takes a long time to come back from a three day bender and you've lost a week of your life." Eventually, she went to see her mom and admitted, 'I can't do it anymore." Her mom sent her to The Meadows, where the actress said "learned a lot" about herself and ultimately enjoyed the "fun" of concentrated self-work. "It's about beliefs," she explained. "What you believe about yourself and the world. It really has nothing to do with what you've achieved or how talented you are or how good looking you are. It's whatever messages you were given as a child about the world and about how people see you and what your value is. That's going to carry over no matter what you achieve in your life. And as long as you don't somehow change those beliefs, and that's a f—— hard thing to do, then you'll be that way forever." When it comes to her own approach to dealing with those conflicts, Jemima says, "I recognize that I use things as an anesthesia, and that can be anything, from shopping to sex … anything it's an anesthesia."
Shakira sings about Gerard Piqué in new single
Shakira recently released the video for another new single and according to E! News, it's all about how the singer fell in love with Gerard Piqué. "My life started to change the night that I met you. I had little to lose," she sings in "Me Enamoré." Later in the tune, she admits she thought twice about getting involved with someone 10 years younger. "I thought, 'this one is still a boy, but what can I do?'" she croons. The song also references the two children the couple share, Milan, 4, and 2-year-old Sasha. "I saw him alone, and I dove in," she sings. "He's for me or no one else." It's the third single for Shakira, who released two songs, "Chantaje" and "Deja Vu," earlier this year.
Orlando Bloom jokes about nude pics, talks post-split relationship with Katy Perry
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom called it quits this year after a globe-trotting romance that began in January 2016. Although they've moved on from their relationship, the press has yet to give up its collective curiosity about one Katy-and-Orlando-era incident: Yep. The nude paddleboarding situation. Elle UK recently checked in with Orlando about the experience of finding that photos of him paddleboarding in his birthday suit while on vacation with Katy. "I wouldn't have put myself in that position if I'd thought it would happen. I've been photographed a million times in a million different ways. I have a good radar. We'd been completely alone for five days—nothing around us. There was no way anyone could get anything," he explained (via E! News). "I had a moment of feeling free. What can I tell you? Note to self: You're never free. Ha!" As for his ex? "We're friends," he said. "It's good. We're all grown-up. She happens to be someone who is very visible, but I don't think anybody cares about what I'm up to. Nor should they. It's between us. It's better to set an example for kids and show that [breakups] don't have to be about hate."
Charlize Theron can't believe how much her kids love each other
Raising kids is stressful, but Charlize Theron finds her son, Jackson, and daughter, August, keep her calm in lots of ways, too. For one thing, she told Ellen DeGeneres this week, they are definitely "for more glitter," not less, in the house Charlize was always a little bit high-string about keeping clean. "A lot of times I'm walking through the house thinking I'm going senile, because I have a little OCD thing. I'm like, 'Where is this glitter coming from?' And it's those princess dresses," she said with a smile (via Us Weekly ). the fact that the kids sometimes make each other "freak out," she added, means she can't follow suit. More importantly, she's amazed at how important they are to one another. "I'm an only child, so I didn't grow up with siblings and so I had no idea the beauty that siblings have with each other. Like it really is one of the most incredible things I've ever witnessed," she said. "To see how much they love each other and to see how much they're excited to see each other. They're so in love with each other, it's really beautiful." So is she thinking about a third? "No," she assured Ellen immediately when asked. A mom has to have glitter boundaries, ya know?
