The Kardashian-Jenner fam's Costa Rican vacation marred by fighting
Did Scott Disick leave the Kardashian family vacation because of a fight with Kourtney Kardashian's mom and sister? Kourtney's ex skipped the flight back to Los Angeles after their family vacation in Costa Rica and opted to hit a Miami beach with various bikini clad women — and it may have had to do with a blowup he allegedly had with Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian West on their trip. The issue, according to TMZ, was that Scott had a girl come meet him in Costa Rica, where they were all filming a segment for "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." He reportedly covered her stay at the same hotel as the crew — and attempted to hide the situation from the family. When a crew member told Kim and Kris what was happening, they reportedly lost it on him. TMZ's sources say Kim and Kris thought Scott's move was "disruptive and disrespectful."
North West models her mom and dad's new clothing line
Couture-conscious toddler North West will no longer have to rely on gifts from the head designer at Balmain to add a little pizazz to her next ballet class look. Her parents, Kim Kardashian West and kanye West, are releasing a kids' clothing line — and guess who's handling runway duties? In a Snapchat video posted this week, Kim asks, "Hey, where's our model?" prompting North to squeak, "I'm here!" As North shows off her yellow sequined dress and shearling coat, Kim announces, "Daddy and mommy are doing a kids line and these are some of the pieces," adding, "Northie picked out the colors and the fabric." It's the second recent kids' line Kim's released; in September, she launched a children's clothing collection with Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian, according to Us Weekly. Kanye, meanwhile, is getting ready to unveil his Yeezy Season 5 collection at New York Fashion Week on Feb. 15.
Angelina Jolie reportedly wants $100k per month from Brad Pitt
She's worth an estimated $160 million, but that's not stopping Angelina Jolie from asking her estranged husband Brad Pitt to cover $100,000 a month in child support, according to a report from InTouch. "This will pay for all of the [six] kids' expenses as well as set up a trust fund for each child," a source tells the tab. The money would reportedly be split between what Angelina gets and $250,000 per child per year for the trust, which would have a cap of $5 million. "Angie wants the divorce finalized within the next 90 days, including custody and property settlements," says the source. "But with everything she's asking for, it's unlikely that will happen. She's making ridiculous financial demands." Brad, who is worth $240 million, reportedly wants all the child support to go into a trust.

Ruby Rose: 'For me, marriage is more about equal rights'
"Orange Is the New Black" star Ruby Rose knows other members of the LGBQT community have it much tougher than she does. "I'm very confident and in tune with my sexuality. I feel very blessed for that, because in different places around the world, people can't be," she says in the new issue of Cosmopolitan (via E! News). "I'm lucky I can explore. I have a very healthy sex life, and there's something very empowering, strong, and feminist about being open and comfortable in that world." In November, Ruby confirmed she was back together with her ex, The Veronicas singer Jess Origliasso, whom she called "the most beautiful girl I've ever seen and loved" on Instagram. And while their love sounds enduring, Ruby's not necessarily about rings and veils. "According to the news, I've been engaged five times. For me, marriage is more about equal rights than the act of getting married," she explains. "When you don't have equal rights, it trickles down to kids who think, 'My aunt's gay so she can't get married,' or 'I'm weird because I feel the same way.' So it's important to break down that barrier. I'm more interested in having a loving, healthy, long-term relationship with someone I might want to have kids with someday."
Why Prince Harry dislikes Donald Trump
Hollywood's been pretty vocal about its seeming majority opposition to Donald Trump's policies and personnel appointments but they're not the only celebrities questioning the direction of the new administration. In the U.K., more than 1.7 million people have petitioned the government demanding the American president and his wife be uninvited from their planned summer visit to Great Britain — and it sounds like Prince Harry is on their side. "Harry thinks the president is a serious threat to human rights," a source tells Us Weekly. Although Kensington Palace had no official comment, another insider echoed that sentiment, telling the magazine Harry has "often been vocal" about his dislike of the reality TV honcho and real estate magnate from the beginning of his campaign in 2015. Harry's issues likely go further back than that. A source who worked in the palace told Us Donald Trump was "relentless in his pursuit of [Diana]" in 1992 following her split from Prince Charles. "It got to the point of being weird, the way he'd know where she was headed so he could suggest they meet at that place," said the source. Last year, after British journalist and Diana's former pal Selina Scott recalled Trump once "bombarded Diana at Kensington Palace with massive bouquets of flowers," a rep defended the billionaire saying he and Diana "had a great relationship, liked each other a lot, but nothing ever came of it." Perhaps that's because, as Selina put it, Trump gave the princess "the creeps."
Christina Applegate claps back at Twitter trolls after political post
Christina Applegate reads, the news, too, and she'd like to be allowed to have opinions about, it, thankyouverymuch. If you were anywhere near the Interwebs on Monday, Jan. 30, you probably saw Medium's story, "Trial Balloon for a Coup," in which Google engineer Yonatan Zunger made the case that Donald Trump's actions over the weekend were a test to see how far his administration could take a coup. Christina retweeted it Monday, Jan. 30, and found herself trolled by supporters of the president who argued her celebrity status makes her "out of touch." A slew of comments like "notice how those who say celebrities shouldn't speak are the same ones shoving their opinions down the throats of others" poured onto the actress' Twitter feed, and given her hardscrabble background, the comments infuriated her. "[It's] weird to me when you say I can't have a voice. I'm also a mother, a daughter and a human. I was birthed the same way you were," she tweeted. "I find it so offensive when people say those of us can't talk. You talk! You spew. So I'm exempt? Because I chose my work? What the f—-?" she added before invoking the abuse and poverty that defined her past. "Hollywood spews s— and calls everyone else racist," tweeted a user. Christina replied in a series of tweets: "No, I'm sorry! F— you. I am a human being. I am an American. You have no idea of my life. And what I have been through!!! … I grew up on an abusive home. Now I make it public. Don't you dare say I don't understand … Don't you dare say I don't understand the struggles. We lived on food stamps. Don't you dare say I don't know … Don't you dare say that because I made a life for me and my single mother I don't understand." The actress, who revealed a decade ago she was abused regularly by her first boyfriend, later added, "Sorry for my outburst. I'm just trying to deal with everything. As a mom I just want a safe place for her. I'm sorry for my language."
Brie Larson criticized for asserting 'Kong' is a tribute to journalists
Republicans and Democrats alike are feeling extra politicized these days, but many of Brie Larson's Instagram followers didn't seem to think that fact should give her a pass on claiming her new big budget flick, "Kong: Skull Island" has a deeper message about the importance of freedom of the press and societal unity. In a post earlier this week, the Oscar winner wrote, "I make movies as a form of activism. I believe we learn from what we see in our leaders. I'm proud to play Mason Weaver in @kongskullislandmovie because she represents the many journalists who risk their lives everyday to share with us the truth." The statement seemed to be a reference to the 2017 White House's declarations that the press should, in a nutshell, zip it. "Weaver leads with compassion and believes that unity cannot be obtained through aggression," Brie continued. "I'm excited to share this film with you. And in the meanwhile I'm thrilled to have this platform as a way to connect us. Let's work together. Lets be open to learning from each other." A slew of heart Emojis and other supportive comments followed. But so did some skeptical ones. "What you saying gurl??? What truth?" asked one user. "You play the Gorilla's love interest lmao." Another wrote in a condescending tone, "sweetie, it's not activism when it yields you millions of dollars." Said a third: "It's a King Kong movie get over yourself."

"Fans were coming up to Nick to try to talk to him, and he would just grab Sara and start making out with her," the source says. "It was like he was trying to make everyone aware that he has a new girlfriend."
