The real reason Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner got married
Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner married on May 1 in Las Vegas, but are still planning a French wedding. The 29-year-old singer and the 23-year-old "Game of Thrones" actress tied the knot following the Billboard Music Awards so that their marriage is legitimate in the U.S. when they have their European wedding, a source told People magazine. "They had to get married in the States to make it legal, but the wedding is still in Europe," the source explained. The couple were married by an Elvis impersonator at A Little White Wedding Chapel. Nick and Kevin Jonas served as groomsmen, Dan + Shay sang as the bride walked down the aisle and Diplo and Khalid attended as guests. While the wedding was a surprise to fans, their officiant told TMZ he was booked for the nuptials last week.

Scott Disick had Khloe Kardashian's paintings appraised
Khloe Kardashian's artwork has the support of Scott Disick. In a preview for Sunday's new episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," Disick brings Kardashian's artwork to a gallery to have it appraised. "I wanted to find out, specifically, how much some pieces of art are worth that I have," the "Flip It Like Disick" star asks an art expert, failing to mention that Kardashian is the artist. While Disick thinks the artwork is "amazing" the expert, Michael Goodman, doesn't agree. "I rarely say this about abstracts, but this one…I'm not sure what that is," he admits. "This artist is very talented at making distasteful paintings." He even adds that a 3-year-old "could've done a better job" and the artwork has no value.
Ryan Reynolds says his daughter relates to "villains"
James Reynolds loves her dad Ryan Reynolds' new movie "Pokémon: Detective Pikachu." The actor, who is married to Blake Lively, opened up about his oldest daughter's reaction to his new flick during an interview on "Good Morning America." "My daughter James is losing her mind over it," he revealed of the 4-year-old. "She's never been interested in a movie I've done ever." As for his daughter Inez, 2, this might not be in line with her interests. "My daughter Inez is 2, and that one is a little strange because she tends to relate more to villains," he said. "We took our kids to The Nutcracker and there's a moment at the beginning where the kid takes the toy and smashes it on the ground and everyone gasps in the audience. My daughter was just like [starts clapping]." Reynolds said he's curious to see how Inez will react when she does eventually see the cartoon. "She just loves villains," he reiterated. "I'm surprised she's not selling hand-rolled cigarettes at her preschool."
Emilia Clarke opens up about sex scenes and dragon rides
As "Game of Thrones" approaches the series finale, Emilia Clarke, who has played Daenerys Targaryen since the show's premiere in 2011, is opening up about flying dragons and the show's sex scenes. In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Clarke shared that her younger brother works in the camera department of the HBO show, making it a bit awkward when she has to film an intimate moment. "It gets pretty tricky when filming love scenes," she admitted, adding that she does what she can to make sure her brother doesn't have a front row seat for the scene. "Yeah, there's some days when he's like 'Oh I'll swing by,' and I'm like 'No it's good! You can stay there.'" During her chat with the late night host, Clarke also discussed Kit Harrington, who plays her character's nephew Jon Snow, flying one of her dragons, which she said he was "arrogant" about. Through Harrington taking her dragon for a ride, she learned that it's a bit different for a male to ride one versus a woman, as it's a "little more uncomfortable for them." The comedian agreed that it would be more challenging "because of the human testicles" and Clarke laughed that Harrington "looked really pained" during the ride.

Justin Theroux's neighbor violates restraining order
Justin Theroux's neighbor faced a hefty fine for violating a restraining order against the actor. Norman Resnicow, who lives in Theroux's Greenwich Village co-op in New York City, was forced to pay $23,000 — $20,000 to Theroux and $3,000 to the co-op board — on May 1, for sending a hostile email to the president of the board. Theroux sued the 71-year-old, claiming that he harassed him and his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston because they didn't install soundproofing immediately while they did a million dollars worth of renovations to their apartment. Theroux's lawyer says that a hostile email to the board violates a temporary restraining order which kept him from contacting Theroux or the board members. Theroux claims that the neighbor has trespassed on his property, harassed his workers, killed his plants on their shared roof deck, and peeped in his windows.

Interestingly, each shot had the word "orange" somewhere. She also shared one snap to her feed , a video of her zooming into her face without blinking, which she captioned "i told you i'm ice cold," a reference to Frank Ocean's "Pilot Jones."
Jenelle Evans and David Eason to be questioned by Animal Control
Animal Control is going to be visiting Jenelle Evans and David Eason to investigate the death of their family dog on May 2. Following Eason shooting and killing Evans' French Bulldog Nugget — a response to the pup nipping their daughter Ensley — North Carolina's animal welfare hotline was overwhelmed with calls about the shooting, with 138 complaints made to the Attorney General's office according to TMZ. Animal Control plans to send an officer to visit the "Teen Mom 2" star's home to confirm the death of the dog and verify that the couple is in possession of the corpse. Eason is likely to respond poorly to the visit, as he has a history of aggression to visits by the authorities. As of now, the former reality star has gotten away with the crime, as the only way police action will be taken against the father of two is if his wife files a police report.
