Inside Scarlett Johansson and Kevin Yorn's new romance
When Scarlett Johansson stepped out holding hands with her entertainment lawyer Kevin Jorn in New York City a few weeks ago, it came as a surprise to some, especially given rumors linking her to "Saturday Night Live" star Colin Jost. But it doesn't sound like Scarlett and Kevin's romance came as a curveball to anyone in their circle, which includes Kevin's brothers, Pete Yorn, who has collaborated musically with Scarlett, and Rick Yorn, who is the actress' talent manager . As for Kevin and Scarlett? "They've known each other for a very, very long time and genuinely liked each other outside of their working relationship," an insider tells People. "Romantically, things developed organically. There's always been an attraction there." Both Scarlett, 32, and Kevin, 51, have a daughter from a previous relationship. "Kevin's always been really great with Scarlett's daughter. He loves kids and she's very family-oriented, so it goes without saying they are connected on that level," says the source. They've also both been there for one another in the past, with Kevin acting as "one of Scarlett's strongest advocates" and Scarlett "personally leaning on him as a friend." These days, they talk constantly, according to the insider, who adds, "Their relationship has been a little on-and-off, but it's definitely on right now given that they can both stick to one place for the moment and actually be together." Scarlett is currently in the process of divorcing Romain Dauriac. Kevin has also been married before, People reports.

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck's family vacation: New details
The "modern family" Jennifer Garner recently said she's created with her ex, Ben Affleck, was in full effect when the two took their kids on vacation in the Bahamas last week. According to E! News, the group stayed in their go-to locale, Baker's Bay, where Violet, Seraphina and Samuel played on the beach and swam and Ben and Jen spent time daily at the gym. Ben reportedly joined the family a few days after Jen and the children arrived. "Ben and Jen took a family vacation with other family friends. There was never any question that Ben would be there. All the dads went along, and it would have been strange for the kids not to have their dad there," a source tells E! "They are not getting back together at all. They are both moving on, but will continue doing things together as a family." Another insider said the group's vacation was very much like others they;ve taken there together. "They stayed in the same house they always stay at. It's beachfront and beautiful. It's an annual tradition for them when the kids get out of school to come for a long vacation. It's very relaxing, and they can feel like they're on island time with nowhere to go and nobody they need to see," said the source. Jen filed for divorce in April following a two-year separation during which Ben lived on the same property as Jen and the kids for most of the time.

Mariah Carey's masseuse says dealing with her is 'a huge production'
In today's least shocking celeb news, Mariah Carey brings her infamous diva behavior with her on massage appointments. Speaking to Architectural Digest, Hollywood's popular biting masseuse Dot Stein explained why she's foregone the back-biting she's known for incorporating into her massage when she's working on Mariah. "It's a huge production to massage her. She doesn't want anyone touching her bedsheets. She refuses to lie on a massage table," Dot revealed. "God forbid my saliva would have touched her; she would have erupted. So I didn't bite Mariah." Celebs who are all about the bite include Kanye West, Lady Gaga and Steven Tyler.
John Mayer no longer drinks, he only smokes weed
John Mayer's boozing days are over. While his reaction to Katy Perry's sex ranking of her exes got most of the attention when his recent Rolling Stone interview came out, the singer also told the magazine he's drastically changed his approach to partying. "I put [marijuana] where drinking used to go, and the quality of life has gone up considerably," John admitted. "Drinking is a f—-ing con. How much is enough? Every time I drank, I was looking for some sort of regulated amount. It always feels wrong for me. I always feel like I went overboard. 'I said two, now it's three, now we're at four?' I never had a serious issue with it, but I remember looking around going, "This feels rigged. I'm taking a break. There's never an amount that felt like I was succeeding at life. It always felt wrong." John's move to weed only makes sense given his new gig with multiple Grateful Dead alums in Dead & Co. "I was always the guy saying that I didn't like altered states," John said. "Once you know who you are, then it becomes OK. I'm much more open-minded to small changes in consciousness. I remember every trip I ever took. I remember every thought I ever had when I laid there." As for Katy Perry's announcement that John ranked in first place when it came to her exes' sex skills? "I don't have a cool-enough thought for you," John said. "I've hacked this game. I pay very little of the price of fame now. I get to play the music that moves me the most. I'm having the time of my life. I'm 39 — I remember 32. I don't wanna do it again."

Is Taylor Swift's new album about time?
Taylor Swift's fans have found a way to keep themselves busy while they wait for her new album to drop. In lieu of actual information about the new music, they seem to be analyzing every Taylor-related post on social media in the hopes of finding clues. So far, The Sun notes they're pretty sure the new album "has something to do with time," as one user wrote on a fan site. The proof is a little thin, but so far they've pointed to a post Taylor shared about a new HAIM track in which she wrote "Til. The. End. Of. Time." Another alleged hint came in a post from Big Machine Label Group CEO Scott Borchetta, who recently wrote, "you can't recycle wasted time." Taylor is signed to Scott's label. Last month, a source told Us Weekly Taylor had been "quietly recording music" for some time and hoped to release a new album in the fall.

John Legend, Mark Ruffalo react to Donald Trump's 'Morning Joe' tweet
"I see Melania's campaign to end cyber bullying is off to a slow start." That's how John Legend reacted on Twitter to Donald Trump's tweet this week in which he mocked "Morning Joe" hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. "I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came … to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!," he tweeted, inciting the now-usual round of wrath and shock his Twitter inspires. John wasn't the only one to call the president out on his attack on Mika. Mark Ruffalo chimed in, "You are the President of the USA and yet you gossip like a mean girl." CNN has since reported there was no evidence Mika was ever bleeding from her face during that visit. The website also pointed to multiple accounts suggesting Joe, Mika and Donald did actually meet and talk at Mar-a-Lago around New Year's.
