Church chastising

Britney Spears comes for Catholic church over perceived wedding snub

The father, the son and the holy Spears.

Britney Spears continues to air her grievances, and she's now zeroed in on the Catholic church. On Tuesday, Aug. 2, the pop star said she wanted to get married in a specific church, but she was denied because she's not a practicing Catholic.

"This is where I originally wanted to get married during COVID 👰🏼‍♀️ !!!!" she wrote alongside an Instagram image of a couple getting married at the altar. "I wanted to go every Sunday … it's beautiful and they said it was temporarily shut down due to COVID !!!! Then 2 years later when I wanted to get married there they said I had to be catholic and go through TEST !!!!"

Still clearly peeved over the situation, Britney asked her Instagram followers, "Isn't church supposed to be open to all 🤔🤷🏼‍♀️⛪️ ????"

Britney was raised Southern Baptist but has also studied Kabbalah.

After Britney's post, the church claimed it was never contacted by the singer.

The "Toxic" singer and Sam Asghari ended up tying the knot in the backyard of her home in June. The nuptials were attended by Paris Hilton, Selena Gomez, Drew Barrymore, Madonna and more.

Although several of the pop star's most committed fans supported her, several others felt that Britney was a little out of bounds. 

"You have to be Catholic to get married in a Catholic Church. It's always been that way," one person said, according to Page Six. Another told Brit, "Some traditions need to be respected Britney."

"I love Britney Spears but Catholic Churches are for the weddings of Catholics, and we shouldn't be expected to bend the rules of our church to accommodate those who just want to be apart of an aesthetic," a third noted. 

Britney has since taken down the Instagram post, but several Twitter followers uploaded screenshots of the church chastising. 

New pics

Elvis' ex shares never-before-seen pics of the late Lisa Marie Presley 

Lisa Marie Presley is being viewed as she never has before. 

On Wednesday, March 29, Elvis Presley's ex-girlfriend Linda Thompson unearthed several 50-year-old Polaroid snaps of the late singer-songwriter.

"Like many of you, I am doing a little bit of spring cleaning and ran across this photo album from back in the day," Linda wrote. "Time stood still for a few moments as I looked through these precious photos."

Linda noted that she lovingly remembered Lisa as "Yisa Marisa" and called her a "precious little girl."

One of the images, from 1974, shows Lisa at six years old and having just lost her two front teeth. Other snaps, both from 1973, show a young Lisa lounging on a boat and celebrating Christmas.

"We had such a wonderful relationship for so many years. She's still a part of my heart," Linda wrote. 

Linda, who dated Elvis from 1972 to 1976, noted that she sees a lot of Lisa in her daughter, Riley Keough.

"There are so many nuances in Riley's facial expressions that remind me of her beautiful mom," Linda said of the "Daisy Jones & The Six" actress. "Lisa's lovely, formidable, powerful presence lives on in her gorgeous and talented daughter."

Lisa passed unexpectedly at the age of 54 on Jan. 12 after going into cardiac arrest.

Scary fall

Rapper Flo Rida's son, 6, in ICU after falling from 5th floor window

The 6-year-old son of rapper Flo Rida, Zohar, is in the intensive care unit after falling from the 5th floor window of an apartment building in New Jersey.

Zohar's mother is blaming the building for the fall, and her attorney said it's a "miracle" that the boy survived, seeing that he reportedly suffered a lacerated liver, collapsed lungs, fractures to his feet and pelvis, and internal bleeding.

According to TMZ, the incident occurred at the beginning of March. In a lawsuit filed this week, the boy's mother, Alexis Adams, alleged the the building's construction company and window installation company were negligent, claiming that "incorrect sized guards" were installed on the windows. This, she said, led to the Zohar falling onto the concrete sidewalk. 

"This feels like a nightmare," she told News12 New Jersey.

It's not known what kind of relationship Flo Rida has with the boy. Back in 2018, the Daily Mail said the rapper had never met his son. In addition, the "My House" singer was not listed as a plaintiff in the lawsuit. 

Alexis' lawyer said the tot will have to learn to walk again after the 50-foot fall. He's still in a full-body cast, which severely restricts movement.

Nick Cannon explains how he financially supports the mothers of his 12 children

Nick Cannon is detailing how he financially supports the mothers of all 12 of his children, and the truth is actually not that complicated. 

"It ain't even about a monthly allowance or an amount of money because I don't give myself that," he said during an interview with Hot 104.1. "I don't give myself that. What they need, they get it."

Nick, who has an estimated net worth of $20 million, added, "There's never been something that one of the mothers of my children has asked for and they didn't receive."

Over the years, the "Masked Singer" host has welcomed children with six women, including ex-wife Mariah Carey, Brittany Bell, Abby De La Rosa, Alyssa Scott, Bre Tiesi and LaNisha Cole.

"Everybody has their challenges – but when you really understand this woman has given the greatest sacrifice and sacrificed her body to bring a child into [this world], that's the best gift any man could ask for," he said. "Regardless of what goes on in any scenario … I'll never say anything disrespectful or bad about any of the mothers of my children."

With multiple women helping to raise his children, Nick is often asked about his baby mamas and if any of them have relationships. 

"I don't keep no secrets [from them]," he said on the "The Big Tigger Morning Show" last year. "They know how I move. I multitask. They don't have to [get along]. They all get along with me."

The "Wild 'N Out" star said he just wants to be a "responsible" father to his trove of children.

"I just want to be the best father I can possibly be and lean into it. I embrace all my children. I love children," he said, later adding, "I didn't set out [for this to happen]. … A lot of people have a lot of children as well and they kinda keep it quiet or they don't talk about it. I lean into mine."

Home sweet home

Kat Von D sells her home that appeared in a major movie to owner of a Hollywood landmark

Kat Von D's famous house — the picture-perfect home featured in 2003's "Cheaper by the Dozen" — is under new ownership.

The massive 12,565-square-foot property sold for $7.75 million to the co-owner of Hollywood Forever Cemetery, TMZ reported, citing real estate sources.

The former "L.A. Ink" tattoo artist initially listed the home on the market in January 2022 for a cool $15 million after moving her family to Indiana, but that was back when the real estate market was at its near peak.

Kat, who bought the Los Angeles home in 2016 for $6.5 million, changed it up. While the property looked warm and familial in the Steve Martin-led film, the reality is a little different. The estate, which is located in Los Angeles' Windsor Square neighborhood, includes lush, manicured landscaping, a blood-red swimming pool and a gothic aesthetic. The estate also features a main residence with 11 bedrooms, eight full bathrooms and seven fireplaces, plus a separate carriage house with two bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The home was actually built in the 1890s and moved to its current location in 1915.

Just one month after the former reality TV star listed the home, it was burglarized while she and her son, then 3, slept.

In February 2022, TMZ reported that strange sounds woke Kat at 10:15 p.m. She then saw a "beam of light moving about the house." Kat grabbed her son, got out of the home and called 911. 

When police arrived, they found a man just wandering around the home. He reportedly told police he was buying the house and needed to use the restroom. No surprise, but that man was not the eventual buyer. 

Fiance problems

Amanda Bynes' family makes decision while she remains under psychiatric hold

With her "best interests" in mind, Amanda Bynes' family is making a decision while she remains under psychiatric hold: They don't want her on-and-off fiancé, Paul Michael, coming anywhere near her.

"They do not want her ex-fiancé around her, and he has been instructed to have no contact with her," an insider told DailyMail.com. "He does not seem to have her best interests in mind and her family has nothing good to say about him."

Amanda and Paul got engaged last summer, but they soon split up, only to get back together. Despite their constantly-changing relationship status, it appears the duo were separated when Amanda suffered a mental breakdown last week. 

On Sunday, March 19, Amanda was found naked and alone while roaming the streets in downtown Los Angeles. She soon waved down a car and informed the driver that she was coming off of a psychotic episode. After calling police herself, the "Easy A" star was then taken to a nearby police station and later placed on a psychiatric hold in a hospital. 

She remains under the hold, as her parents, Rick and Lynn, monitor the situation.

Last week, Paul told Page Six that his former flame was "off her meds."

"She got off her meds, and she's still off her meds… She's wild," he said, insisting the two are still "friends."

Rick and Lynn, though, aren't buying it and are "taking every precaution in order to ensure that Michael has no contact" with their daughter. 

The latest psychiatric episode occurred almost one year to the day of a judge terminating the conservatorship that guided Amanda's life for more than eight years. 

TMZ reported on March 21, 2023, that a second conservatorship isn't off the table, but isn't likely. Amanda's parents are taking solace in the fact that the former actress recognized she was in trouble when she flagged down a car and notified police herself.

Living situation

Bruce Willis' current wife addresses report that Demi Moore is now living with them to help care for the actor after his dementia diagnosis

Demi Moore is sharing the same roof with her ex-husband, Bruce Willis, and his current wife, Emma Heming, according to a new report. A source told RadarOnline.com on March 8, "Demi has moved in, and she is not leaving until the very end."

However, later in the day, Bruce's wife, Emma Heming, denied it. "Let's nip this one in the bud. This is so dumb. Please stop," she wrote on her Instagram Story.

Bruce and Demi, who were married for 13 years and share three children, have had a close relationship for years. 

"At first no one outside the family could understand what Demi was doing living with her ex and his new wife, but now it makes sense," the source told Radar. "Demi has been a rock for the family and is determined to make sure every day Bruce has left on earth will be filled with love."

Last March, Bruce's family announced that the "Pulp Fiction" star was retiring due to Aphasia, a condition that affects a person's ability to communicate — to speak, write and understand language. Then, last month, the family announced that he has been diagnosed with dementia — this in addition to his battle with aphasia. 

"Now Bruce will leave before [Demi] does," the source claimed.

On Sunday, March 5, Emma issued a PSA about her husband after seeing paparazzi images of him getting coffee with friends. 

"If you are someone who is looking after someone who has dementia, you know how difficult and how stressful it can be, just to get them out into the world and navigate them safely – even just to get a cup of coffee," she said. "In the spirit of raising awareness for dementia, it's clear that a lot of education needs to be put forth."  

Emma continued by pleading with paparazzi to give Bruce his "space" if they see him out and about. 

"Allow for our family or whoever is with him that day to get him from point A to point B safely," she said. 

Ad issue

Conservative pundit Candace Owens feuds with Christina Applegate over resurfaced ad

In a seemingly outta-left-field feud, Christina Applegate is slamming Candace Owens for her comments about a 2022 SKIMS advertisement.

The "Married… With Children" actress initially called the conservative pundit "f****** gross" before extending an olive brach.

Last year, SKIMS released an ad that showed a woman in a wheelchair wearing the clothing line. The ad preached inclusivity. Candace called it "ridiculous."

"I'm just getting tired of this all-inclusivity thing," she said in a 2022 interview. "Look, I assume that people who are in wheelchairs also have to buy bras, also have to buy underwear… I didn't know that we needed to see that in our face."

Christina — who was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in early 2021 and now struggles with mobility issues — fired away at Candace on Twitter after being made aware of her comments via a recent Forbes article.

"Yes late tweet. But woke to see the most horrifying thing," she tweeted on Thursday, March 23. "This Candace person making comments about companies who see we need help. It's f****** gross."

The actress then thanked companies like SKIMS for "seeing us." 

In a follow-up tweet, she continued, "Going to try and sleep but my rage is keeping me awake. Candace Owens, do you know when you have seen pictures of me how f****** hard it was to get my clothes on? A team has to help me!!! So I'm excited for accessibility clothing for me and my community."

Candace defended herself in a YouTube video. 

"Let's debunk the idea that I'm an ableist," she said. "I thought that was really, really interesting, that I somehow wanted to pursue disabled people and I somehow wanted them out of spaces. That is absolute nonsense. I've spent my entire life fighting the idea that, in order for me to feel like I'm allowed to be black or that I'm allowed to be a woman, I need to therefore see black women everywhere. That is the opposite of what it means to actually have confidence. I don't need to see Tyra Banks being a model. I don't need to see Tyra Banks wearing underwear."

Christina eventually had a change of heart regarding her initial reaction to Candace. 

"I thought my last tweet was enough. But then my heart said something else. No rage. If Candace wants to get on the phone with me to be educated on being disabled. I will not come with anger. I will come with love. Because she needs to hear that. I pray for her tonight. Sincerely," she tweeted.

Custody situation

Olivia Wilde accuses Jason Sudeikis of trying to 'litigate her into debt,' of 'intimidation' and 'trickery' and of making legal moves behind her back

The custody battle between Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis is getting more and more contentious. In a new court filing, she accuses him of trying to "litigate her into debt."

"While Jason can afford to spin his wheels with filing after filing, Olivia cannot," her attorneys wrote in advance of a now-canceled Friday, March 24, hearing in Los Angeles, according to DailyMail.com. "Jason seems intent on throwing whatever he can against the wall to see what will stick, and this Request for Order seeking a stay of the California Parentage action is just the latest example."

Olivia and Jason share son Otis, 8, and daughter Daisy, 6. The "Ted Lasso" star has fought for the children to live primarily in New York City, while Olivia wants them in Los Angeles. TMZ reported that the "Don't Worry Darling" director scored a legal win, as a judge rejected Jason's request to have the case moved to New York.

In addition, her team claimed that Jason is using "intimidation or trickery" to win the case, and they believe he's being "underhanded" and acting "in bad faith" in regard to their children's living arrangement. 

"Jason should not be permitted to litigate Olivia into debt, and then claim she should be deprived of her right to seek a needs-based fee contribution from him," her attorneys said, noting that she is "aware that he is far wealthier than she is."

Despite the rough start to the custody battle — she was served legal paperwork in front of 4,000 people during CinemaCon in 2022 — the "House" alum added she was surprised things had gotten to this point. 

"We were scheduled to start working with a family therapist in California in mid-January. I thought things were calming down and were going to move forward in a more amicable, respectful fashion," Olivia wrote in the court docs. "Instead I learned … that the entire time I was negotiating the parenting time schedule in California [Jason] was plotting to proceed with the New York Child Support proceeding behind my back."

Friends forever

Jennifer Aniston reunites with former child star from fan-favorite 1996 episode of 'Friends'

Jennifer Aniston had a brief reunion in New York City with the actress who appeared on a fan-favorite episode of "Friends" when she was just 8 years old.

Back in 1996, Mae Whitman played Sarah, a Girl Scout whom Ross accidentally knocks down a flight of stairs. The episode, which aired during the sitcom's third season, was titled "The One Where Rachel Quits."

Although Jen and Mae, who's now 34, didn't share screen time, the "Morning Show" star made a memorable impression on the former child actress.

As luck would have it, both women appeared on "Live with Kelly And Ryan" on March 22 to promote their latest projects: Jen's action-comedy "Murder Mystery 2" and Mae's Hulu series "Up Here."  At first, it seemed as though Jen wasn't aware that she and Mae had previously crossed paths on "Friends."

"I was on 'Friends.' I played the girl that gets knocked down the stairs with the Girl Scout cookies," Mae said.

Jennifer grabbed Mae's arms and replied, "Oh my God!"

"I just wanted to say hi because you were so kind to me. It was my favorite show and you really made me feel like I was a part of the cast," Mae continued. "And you were so kind and you hugged me. Thank you. It's always stayed with me."

Clearly moved, Jen said, "I'm so glad you're good." As they hugged, Mae added, "It's so nice to see you. You're amazing."

Mae took to Instagram to share a video and a photo from the reunion. In the caption, she shared a memory from her "Friends" stint: "I wept hysterically when I wrapped the episode and made [Jen] a Christmas ornament anyway," she wrote. 

On her Instagram Story, she noted, "Jennifer Aniston changed my life."
