A legend is retiring from film and a reality show is filming again — those were big stories this past week, but Beyonce ruled the news cycle again. A June 20 report from TMZ said that Beyonce's newborn twins were born premature and are "under the lights," which likely refers to the phototherapy that's often used on babies born with jaundice. A few days earlier, it was reported that the babies — a boy and a girl — remained hospitalized with a "minor issue." The kids will be okay, reports indicate. Bey's father, Mathew Knowles, angered her rabid fans earlier in the week when on June 18 he confirmed that Bey had given birth. Bey's fans weren't having it and hit out at her dad for sharing the news. The fans felt that only Bey or husband Jay-Z should be the ones making the announcement.

The sexual assault investigation hovering over "Bachelor in Paradise" is over and Warner Bros., which produces the show, determined on June 20 that no wrongdoing occurred whatsoever. Now the show is set to resume shooting. Only a week after filming began in Mexico for the ABC show, the series was suspended amid reports of possible sexual misconduct. Multiple reports claimed that DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios were inebriated and fooling around in a swimming pool, and that the production was investigating whether Corinne might have been too drunk to consent after staffers made complaints. After investigators viewed video of the sexual encounter and interviewed witnesses, a decision was made. Claims have continued to surface alleging that Corinne was "fully engaged" and lucid throughout the incident. Corinne's lawyers said they are still investigating.

Baby (sort of) on the way
Lucky No. 3! Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West have taken steps to add to their brood. The power couple has hired a surrogate to carry their third child together, multiple reports revealed this week. Kim has already been told that she would be risking death if she gave birth again, so she has been on the hunt for a surrogate for some time (Khloe Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen have both offered up their wombs in the past). TMZ reported on June 21 that a financial deal is in place where the surrogate will pocket $45,000 to carry the child to term. If there are multiples, the surrogate gets $5,000 for each additional kid. There are also strict instructions in place for the surrogate regarding her diet, hair and even her sex life.

So long, Hollywood
Three-time Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis has broken up with Hollywood. The highly acclaimed actor announced on June 20 that he is retiring from acting. No reason was given as to why he decided to leave it all behind at the age of 60. A statement from his rep said, "Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor. He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years. This is a private decision and neither he nor his representatives will make any further comment on this subject." He has one more movie set for release this year.
Miles Teller was arrested in San Diego for public intoxication, but it all could have been avoided. The actor was reportedly drinking with his pals when an officer noticed him struggling to stand on a sidewalk. The cop began asking him questions, but Miles refused to cooperate, TMZ reported on June 19. The police officer, rather than take Miles to jail, took him to a center where he was given the option to sleep it off. However, Miles reportedly became uncooperative. He was then officially arrested and taken to jail. Miles later denied that he was arrested. "Went down to SD to see my buddy before he deployed. I wasn't arrested I was detained bc there was no evidence to charge me with a crime," he tweeted.
Billion… with a B!
George Clooney and his BFF Rande Gerber are counting dollar signs after selling their Casamigos tequila brand for $1 billion. Not exactly chump change. The brand was sold to Diageo, a British alcohol beverage company. Despite the sale, George, Randy and their third partner, Michael Meldman, plan to stay on with the brand, which was started four years ago as more of a passion project. "If you asked us four years ago if we had a billion dollar company, I don't think we would have said yes," the actor said in a statement after the sale. "This reflects Diageo's belief in our company and our belief in Diageo. We're not going anywhere. We'll still be very much a part of Casamigos. Starting with a shot tonight. Maybe two."
Alyssa Milano is suing her former business manager for $10 million, accusing him and his firm of mismanaging her money and leaving her in financial ruin. On June 18, the New York Post revealed that Alyssa filed the lawsuit accusing Kenneth Hellie and his firm, Hellie, Hoffer & Co., of forging her signature on checks, failing to pay overdue bills and taxes and inducing her to make bad investments in businesses in which he was also an investor. Alyssa alleges that the decisions left her "with millions of dollars in debt and their credit in ruins." It all started with a mismanaged home improvement project. The actress says the manager oversaw her pump $5 million into a home that is only worth $3 million. A slew of fines followed, as well, she says. All the while, she says she was told her finances were in good shape.
Mariah Carey might have outdone herself with her diva behavior on the set of "The House." This week, star Will Ferrell hinted that Mimi was excessively late to the set and refused to follow instructions from the director (she was eventually cut from the film). The next day, on June 21, Cedric Yarbrough, who stars in the film, said similar things. "This lady was unprofessional & borderline abusive to our director, who tried his best to appease her every wish," he wrote on social media. "This kind of behavior just isn't cool. I'm not even going to tell you the worst part. (i will if i see you in person & if i deem you 'cool'). For you young actors, be on time, know your homework, but be courteous and respectful. For us old heads, the same. This kind of behavior should be called out for what it is. I miss 'I had a vision of love' Mariah. Be a damn professional."
22-year age gap
Kate Beckinsale is turning back the clock on her love life. On June 20, pictures surfaced of the 43-year-old actress smooching 21-year-old comedian Matt Rife. The two have been quietly dating, according to reports. "Everyone in Kate's circle loves Matt and are so supportive of this relationship," a source told "Entertainment Tonight." "He really is the sweetest guy and makes her so happy! Her entire family thinks he is the nicest and most lovely person." (Fun fact: Matt is only three years older than Kate's daughter. Second fun fact: Kate could legally drink alcohol before Matt was born.) You do you, Kate!
"Price Is Right" vet Bob Barker, 93, was hospitalized after falling in his home. A June 19 report from TMZ said the TV legend slipped, fell and hit his head while he was in the bathroom. Although paramedics showed up and advised him to go to the hospital, he was not transported by ambulance. Instead, a housekeeper drove him. "There was no blood or visible injuries but Bob was pretty shaken," TMZ reported. He was in the emergency room for several hours before heading home to recover.
Drugs and death
Carrie Fisher had a slew of drugs in her system before she died last year. An autopsy report released on June 19 showed that the "Star Wars" legend had cocaine, heroin and ecstasy in her system when she was hospitalized last year after suffering a major heart attack on an airplane. Whether any of these played a role in her Dec. 27 death isn't known. Just a few days prior to the new report, the coroner said that Carrie died of "sleep apnea and other undetermined factors." Carrie's daughter, Billie Lourd, addressed the findings with People magazine: "My mom battled drug addiction and mental illness her entire life. She ultimately died of it. She was purposefully open in all of her work about the social stigmas surrounding these diseases. She talked about the shame that torments people and their families confronted by these diseases. I know my Mom, she'd want her death to encourage people to be open about their struggles. Seek help, fight for government funding for mental health programs. Shame and those social stigmas are the enemies of progress to solutions and ultimately a cure. Love you Momby."
