Selena Gomez sports her Taylor Swift hoodie while out and about in Los Angeles
As she wraps up a difficult few months with a refreshed outlook on life, Selena Gomez is clearly keeping one of her besties close to her heart. The singer stepped out for a walk in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Dec. 26, wearing a baggy hooded sweatshirt from her longtime friend, Taylor Swift's box office-busting Reputation tour. The subtle message of support for Taylor comes on the heels of Selena's recent release from a treatment center where she spent a month tackling mental health issues reportedly sparked by back-to-back low blood cell counts following her kidney transplant. Selena and Taylor have been pals for about 10 years — and it's no wonder the thought of Taylor might keep Selena's spirits up. This past spring, Selena hopped onstage to sing a song with her BFF during Taylor's Rose Bowl tour stop. After the show, Taylor shared a video clip of the two in which Taylor was wearing the same hoodie Selena had on this week. "To the person I could call at any time of day, who has been there no matter what… you absolutely KILLED IT tonight and everyone was so excited to see you," Taylor captioned the sweet pic. "I love you," she added, "and 60,000 people at the Rose Bowl loved you too." Girl power, indeed.

Madonna plans to appeal condo board ruling: Report
Following a New York City judge's Nov. 28 ruling against Madonna in her long-running battle with the condo board of her luxury apartment in the Big Apple, the singer appeared to have run out of options in protecting her family and staff's access to the digs in her absence. But the New York Post reports Madge plans to appeal the decision, which mandated she be physically present when any of her relatives or employees are occupying the space. Located on Manhattan's Upper West Side, the building, Harperly Hall, has become a thorn in Madonna's side over the past few years. She's been fighting the board's complaints about random people using the apartment when she's out of town since 2016.

Celebs react to Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth's surprise wedding
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth finally said "I do" right before Christmas after years of on-off dating and multiple engagements — and their famous friends and family couldn't be happier. Miley's confirmation of the happy news on Wednesday, Dec. 26, sparked a slew of posts on social media congratulating the bride and groom and sending them love. Romance writer Nicholas Sparks, who penned "The Last Song" — the book on which the movie Miley and Liam starred in and fell in love while shooting was based — tweeted "This makes me so happy. Congratulations," according to Us Weekly. Hailey Baldiwn, Julianne Hough, Rebel Wilson, Tinashe, Hilary Swank, Marc Jacobs and Zac Posen sent happy, lovey-dovey Emojis and comments to Miley and Liam, as well, while Miley's friend and collaborator Mark Ronson posted a "special here comes the bride cyrus/hemsworth remix for 2019," on Instagram, writing, "congratulations u two xo."

Pete Davidson spent time at Dave Chappelle's before Christmas
Pete Davidson seems to be surrounding himself with folks who care about him right now — and that could be the best thing for the "SNL" star, who admitted on Instagram earlier this month he was struggling to find the will to "be on this earth" after his attempts at helping others seemed to have blown up in his face. A source tells Us Weekly Pete — who's laid low and stayed off social media since his Instagram message scared enough people that the NYPD staged a wellness check to make sure he was safe — "spent a few days before Christmas hanging out with Dave Chappelle in Ohio." The insider added that the two are friends "through the comedy world" and that "Pete wanted to get away for a few days to feel better, so Dave invited him there. Dave has a house somewhere in the woods." Dave is no stranger to needing a break from the limelight. He famously walked away from his show at the height of its popularity a few years ago. Pete reportedly left Dave's in time for Christmas, which he spent in New Jersey.
Khloe Kardashian gets nostalgic about her baby bump
When Khloe Kardashian and her daughter, True Thompson, celebrated Christmas Eve at the Kardashian-Jenner crew's holiday bash this week, the mother-daughter duo was pictured wearing matching white, fluffy dresses for the "winter wonderland"-themed affair — a big difference from the shimmery silver number Khloe draped over her then pregnant belly at the same party the year before. On Wednesday, Dec. 26, she seemed to be feeling nostalgic for Christmas Eve 2017 when she posted a photo and videos from the previous year's celebration, captioning a pic on her Instagram Story (via UsWeekly), "A lot can change in a year." On a video clip from the 2017 Christmas Eve bash, Khloe wrote, "I miss my bump." It's unclear how she was feeling about the changes 2018 brought, but a lot has changed for the jeans designer and reality star, who welcomed True in April just days after learning Tristan had cheated on her while she was pregnant. Tristan didn't make it to this year's party, reportedly because of the demands of his schedule with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost spend Christmas together in Argentina
After more than a year of dating, Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost are still going strong. The low-key pair was spotted returning to Buenos Aires in Argentina on Christmas Day after a visit to the Perito Moreno glacier in Patagonia over the weekend, according to the Daily Mail. The actress and "SNL" star made their romance official when they hit the red carpet together last fall at the American Museum Of Natural History Gala in New York City in November 2017. For the most part, though, they've managed to keep their relationship out of the spotlight other than the occasional date night or trip to the Hamptons. While a Thanksgiving engagement rumor was quickly debunked, a friend of the couple recently told People ScarJo and Colin are "very much in love" and getting "serious."
Is Duchess Meghan's due date earlier than spring 2019?
In October, Kensington Palace announced Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry were expecting their first child in the spring. But a comment Meghan made to a fan during the Christmas Day service at Sandringham this week has some speculating the baby could be here sooner than expected. Asked for an update on her due date, a woman named Karen Anvil says the duchess told her, "'We are excited. We are nearly there,'" according to E! News. In the meantime, Meghan and Harry are reportedly preparing to move from Kensington Palace to Frogmore Cottage at Windsor Estate early next year.
Jon Gosselin says his son Collin 'does not have special needs' as Kate Gosselin has claimed
It seems there are still some serious parenting matters on which Jon Gosselin and his ex-wife, Kate Gosselin, do not agree. Jon spent Christmas with two of the eight children he shares with Kate — Hannah, who's lived with her dad since February, and Collin, who was put under his father's temporary sole custody earlier this month. Us Weekly noticed that a fan commented on a photo of Jon with the two kids on Christmas, writing, "I'd love to know if he actually has 'special needs,' or if he just didn't deal [with] Kate's BS like we all suspect. Either way, he's home! And he looks happy." It was a reference to news from 2016 that Kate had sent Collin to live at a center for children with special needs. At the time, Kate said she was following doctors' orders when she opted to send Collin to the treatment center. It turns out Jon may have thought it was always the wrong move. Speaking to the fan on Instagram about Collin, now 14, Jon said: "He is not on any spectrum or special needs." Jon has reportedly not seen his other children in a year, due to what he described to Us Weekly as a "volatile" relationship with them.
Chris Brown headed to court over pet monkey
Back in 2017, Chris Brown adopted a baby capuchin monkey named Fiji and promptly sparked a storm of backlash over the adoption after he posted photos of his toddler, Royalty, playing with the little guy. It seems the authorities have finally gotten involved and discovered the singer does not have a permit for the monkey. TMZ reports the Los Angeles City Attorney has charged Chris with two counts of having a restricted species without a permit, which could land him in jail for up to six months if he's found guilty. The City Attorney apparently got involved after the California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife acted on a tip and investigated the situation. Chris reportedly surrendered Fiji voluntarily when he was contacted about the pet. He's due in court Feb. 6.
Justin Bieber shares a sneak peek of his new slipper line
Having apparently moved away from music for the time being, Justin Bieber seems to be moving toward the scintillating world of … lounge footwear. He posted a photo on Christmas of what we presume were his own feet wrapped in some relatively simple white slippers with Emoji-esque faces on them and the name, "drew" where the faces' mouths should be. According to the New York Post, the slippers — and chains that appear in a pile on the floor in the same pic –represent previews of his forthcoming "drew" line. The name is reportedly a reference to Justin's middle name. "Drew House is a place where you can be yourself.Blah blah blah blahsdbksjdfhl," Justin dismissively tells shoppers on his website for the collection. "Wear like you don't care. Come chill. K. Bye." The slippers, sold out as of Wednesday, Dec. 26, were retailing for $4.99.
