"Final straw"

Mary-Kate Olsen split with ex as he moved ex-wife into their home: Report

While Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy's marriage hung by a thread, he moved his ex-wife into a mansion that he and the "Full House" star shared, according to a new report.

The move-in, which was reportedly prompted by the Covid-19 pandemic, was said to be "the final straw for Mary-Kate." 


Page Six reported on Wednesday that Olivier began relocating his ex-wife, Charlotte Bernard, their two children and his mother from New York City into the five-bedroom, 4,000-square-foot mansion in early April.

Olivier shared the home, which is located in the ultra-lavish Hamptons area of New York, with Mary-Kate.

"Olivier was concerned for the safety of his family in New York during the pandemic. He insisted to Mary-Kate that he wanted to bring his ex-wife, their kids and his mother from the city, to their Bridgehampton home," a source said. "Maybe French people culturally have a different view of marriage, and while Mary-Kate loves his children, it was too much to have his ex-wife living with them during the pandemic. Would you want the ex-wife living with you for an unforeseeable amount of time in the middle of a crisis?"


Friends are quick to point out that Mary-Kate, who officially filed for divorce from Olivier on May 25, had a respectful relationship with Olivier's ex-wife.

"The moment MK drove out of the driveway in April, Olivier had his mother, kids, and wait for this … Charlotte his ex-wife, move in to keep them in a safer place, away from COVID," a second source said. "There's no romance between Charlotte and Olivier, he wants to keep everyone (including Charlotte) safe from COVID."

"It was not uncommon for Charlotte to be around and stay in a separate bedroom in the Hamptons on holidays or birthdays," the insider continued. "They have two kids and have always put them first. In their French way, family comes first, even with a divorce. Charlotte was even at Olivier's wedding to Mary-Kate."


Mary-Kate and Olivier had been having issues prior to the pandemic, but Charlotte's move into the Hamptons home was "the final straw" for the fashion mogul, the second source added.

While Olivier — the half-brother of former French president Nicolas Sarkozy — and his ex now self-isolate in the affluent Hamptons amid the pandemic, Mary-Kate is also reportedly sequestering herself in a multimillion-dollar Hamptons estate


The split between Mary-Kate and Olivier hasn't exactly been smooth. Earlier this month, she lost an emergency petition for a divorce. In her court documents, she asked to be able to use the former couple's home in the Hamptons (the one where Olivier and Charlotte are staying) and two of their ritzy apartments in Manhattan. 

"I am petrified that my husband is trying to deprive me of the home we have lived in and if he is successful, I will not only lose my home but I risk losing my personal property as well," she said in court documents, noting that she initially wanted to formally file for divorce in mid-April (on the heels of Olivier's ex's move-in) but courts were closed to non-essential matters. 

Her divorce filing, she argued on May 13, was an "emergency."

Despite her argument, a judge said Mary-Kate's divorce wasn't essential at the time.

While the fiercely private Mary-Kate has yet to publicly address the cause of the split, reports last week claimed the duo disagreed on having children.

New beau?

Billie Eilish pictured cuddling up with actor during coffee date

Billie Eilish might be off the market.

Over the weekend, the "Bad Guy" singer was pictured in Santa Barbara, California, getting cozy with actor Matthew Tyler Vorce. Page Six published the pictures, which were quickly picked up by fan sites dedicated to Billie.

Photos show Billie and Matthew walking with her pit bull while getting coffee. One photo shows the Grammy winner leaning into Matthew with her arm around his waist and her head on his shoulder. Matthew also wrapped an arm around Billie, who donned a Snoop Dogg hoodie and bike shorts.

Matthew, who's had bit roles in several made-for-TV movies and on various shows, turned his Instagram to "private" after the images were published. His Instagram bio describes him as an "Actor. Writer. Degenerate." He is also a creator of the iHeartRadio podcast "Searching For Putty Man."

Billie, 19, hasn't had a pubic relationship since she and Brandon "Q" Adams split in 2019, though she kept that romance under wraps until more than a year after they called it quits.


In her 2021 Apple TV+ documentary "Billie Eilish: The World's a Little Blurry," she alluded to having a boyfriend, but she refused to reveal his identity.

Neither Billie nor Matthew have commented on the growing relationship rumors.

Cold shoulder

Demi Lovato is seemingly at war with frozen yogurt shop

Demi Lovato is having an icy exchange with a Los Angeles frozen yogurt shop.

Over the weekend, the singer took umbrage with The Bigg Chill for giving sugar-free varieties of sweets prime store placement, saying it was "triggering" for her as someone recovering from an eating disorder. She called the shop "diet culture vultures."

"Finding it extremely hard to order froyo from @thebiggchillofficial when you have to walk past tons of sugar free cookies/other diet foods before you get to the counter," she wrote on her Instagram Story. "Do better please."

The store wasn't about to cave to Demi, saying it has indulgent varieties, but also carries items for vegans, diabetics and people with Celiac disease.

In a direct message to Demi, which she shared publicly, the shop said, "We are not diet vultures. We cater to all of our customers needs for the past 36 years. We are sorry you found this offensive."

Demi didn't relent. "You can carry things for other people while also caring for another percentage of your customers who struggle DAILY just to even step foot in your store," she said. "You can find a way to provide an inviting environment for all people with different needs." She even insinuating that the shop was making "excuses."

As Demi's anger built, The Bigg Chill went cold on her and stopped responding. Demi then starting throwing out her ideas. 

"I was thinking, maybe it would help if you made it more clear that the sugar free options and vegan options are for that," she wrote. "Labeling the snacks for celiac diabetes or vegans. When it's not super clear, the messaging gets confusing and being in LA it's really hard to distinguish diet culture vs. health needs. I think more clearer messaging would be more beneficial for everyone."

Seems that Demi will have to stay cool for the summer somewhere else.

Police situation

Police investigating suspicious package sent to home of 'Lucifer' star

Police have launched an investigation into a suspicious package sent to the home of "Lucifer" star Tom Ellis and his screenwriter wife, Meaghan Oppenheimer.


According to TMZ, a "glitter package" — essentially a box filled with glitter — was sent to the couple's Los Angeles home last month. Although the couple found the delivery odd, they also found it troublesome because it was addressed to Meaghan, not her far more famous husband. 

Afterward, the couple filed a police report. 

The LAPD's Threat Management division, TMZ said, has a lead on the case. 

While Tom is known for his on-screen work, his wife's writing is very well-respected behind the scenes, as she worked on "Queen America" for several years. Tom often gushes about her on social media. Last month he shared a loved up selfie with Meaghan.

"I met this nugget of love 6 years ago today," he wrote on Instagram. "@moppyoppenheimer thanks for putting up with me and loving me so good."

Honoring Helen

Damian Lewis writes moving tribute to 'brilliant' late wife

Damian Lewis is remembering his late wife, Helen McCrory, in a heartfelt tribute, and he's marveling at how she "spread happiness" even in her final days.

"Many people have spoken about her career and many more will, so that's where I'll leave it, because it strikes me that two things are happening this weekend: an outpouring of grief and shock, and a celebration of Helen McCrory the actress from fans everywhere, and of Helen the person," Damian wrote in an essay for The Sunday Times. "And that's who I want to talk about."

"Helen was an even more brilliant person than she was an actress," the "Billions" star continued. "She was a people person, sure. 'I'm much more interested in who I'm with than where I am,' she would say, and innately wanted to share. But she also lived by the principle of kindness and generosity. That you put these things out into the world to make it better, to make people feel better."

On April 16, Damian announced that Helen had passed away at the age of 52 after a battle with cancer. Still, the "Harry Potter" star managed to "spread happiness" as her time was coming to an end. 

"Even when dying in her last few days, when talking to our wonderful carers, she repeatedly said, 'thank you so much' in her half delirious state," Damian said. "I've never known anyone able to enjoy life as much. Her ability to be in the present and enjoy the moment was inspirational. Nor was she interested in navel-gazing. No real interest in self- reflection; she believed in looking out, not in. Which is why she was able to turn her light so brightly on others."

In addition to Damian, Helen leaves behind two teenage children.

"They have in them the fearlessness, wit, curiosity, talent and beauty of their mother. She has exhorted us to be courageous and not afraid," Damian said of daughter Manon, 14, and son Gulliver, 13.

The actor gave fans an insight into the waning hours of the beloved "Peaky Blinders" star's life.

"She has been utterly heroic in her illness. Funny, of course — generous, brave, uncomplaining, constantly reminding us all of how lucky we've been, how blessed we are. Her generosity has extended to encouraging us three to live. Live fully, take opportunities, have adventures," he said. "Already I miss her. She has shone more brightly in the last months than you would imagine even the brightest star could shine. In life, too, we had to rise to meet her. But her greatest and most exquisite act of bravery and generosity has been to 'normalise' her death. She's shown no fear, no bitterness, no self-pity, only armed us with the courage to go on and insisted that no one be sad, because she is happy."

"I'm staggered by her," he said of his late wife. "She's been a meteor in our life."

Housewives rumors

Jana Kramer addresses 'Housewives' rumors

Jana Kramer is getting real about those "Housewives" rumors. 

On an upcoming podcast, she claims that producers courted her three times to be on "The Real Housewives of Nashville."

"When they were trying to cast 'The Real Housewives of Nashville' and they were interested in me as one of the characters I was just like 'No.' I don't like girl drama, I don't want to be a part of it, I don't want to feed into it. It's not me, I don't like it," she said, according to People magazine. 

Bravo, by the way, has never confirmed a Nashville-based show is happening.

Last week, Jana and several wives of country music stars were rumored to be filming content for a "Housewives"-esque show. Jana and Kasi Wicks, the wife of Chuck Wicks and sister of Jason Aldean, both teased filming projects on Instagram, but didn't specify what the project was for.

On the podcast, Jana confirmed that she and her husband, Mike Caussin, filmed something recently.

"So we did film something and, you know, it's just a presentation I don't know if it will ever get picked up, and again I don't even know if it's something that at the end of the day if we will really do, because I know we share so much on the podcast and so much here but sometimes it's the kiss of death," she said. "So that's something that we have to also think about and be careful of because it's scary."

Jana's thoughts on the "Housewives" franchise seems to have changed of late. Last year, she acknowledged that she auditioned for "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."

"The only reason I entertained the one with Teddi [Mellencamp Arroyave] was because it could be fun to be someone's sidekick, fun buddy that just kind of comes in," she said on the podcast.

Sad day

Wahlberg matriarch passes at 78

Alma Wahlberg, the mother of Mark and Donnie Wahlberg and seven other children, has passed away at the age of 78, the family announced.

Mark announced the news on Twitter in April 18, posting a photo of his mom alongside the caption, "My angel. Rest in peace."

Around the same time, Donnie posted a video tribute to his mom, who was often featured in the A&E series "Wahlburgers," which ran for ten seasons. 

"I'm so blessed to have been brought into this world by, raised by, taught by and set on my life's path by, such an amazing woman," he said in a lengthy Instagram caption. "My mom Alma's joy for life, love and people — combined with a pride in her humble beginnings and refusal to forget where she came from — undoubtedly shaped me into the man that I am. I've often said, if you like anything about me, I got it from Alma. I say that, because it's true."

"She was, without a doubt, the most loving human being I've ever known," he wrote. "I never heard her say, or do, anything disrespectful to anyone. She was, as anybody who ever came across her knows, true blue."


Last year, Donnie has hinted that his mother was struggling with her memory. 

"Like so many moms who struggled, overcame odds, made something from nothing and pulled off the impossible for their children, she never complained. She did what needed to be done, most often, with a smile. She made the best of times in the worst of times," he said on Sunday. "That was Alma — mother, sister, daughter, grandmother, friend, ally, warrior, angel. She made no apologies for who she was, but never put herself above anyone else. She kicked our butts if we messed up, kicked anyone else's butts if they messed with us. Taught us right, made us pay the price when we were wrong. She was the epitome of the word grace."

Donnie went on to share several anecdotes about growing up in Massachusetts under his mom's roof. 

"It's time to rest peacefully, mom," he wrote. "I love you, miss you, thank you and will celebrate you, today and always."

Court matter

Robert De Niro 'forced' to work to fund ex's 'thirst for Stella McCartney'

Robert De Niro is struggling financially due to his ex's extravagant lifestyle, according to his lawyer. 

The "Meet The Parents" star is currently going through a vitriolic divorce with his ex, Grace Hightower. In a court hearing on April 16, Robert's lawyer condemned Grace's "thirst for Stella McCartney" and penchant for buying expensive jewelry, Page Six reported.

The former couple signed a prenuptial agreement, but the terms haven't kicked in yet. Until then, De Niro has been funding his estranged wife, but her lawyer claimed the on-screen legend has continued to cut the amount of money he gives her. The lawyer said De Niro, who filed for divorce in 2018, previously paid $375,000 a month in Grace's credit card expenses, but he has since cut it down to $100,000. 

"Mr. De Niro is 77 years old, and while he loves his craft, he should not be forced to work at this prodigious pace because he has to," De Niro's lawyer told the court. "When does that stop? When does he get the opportunity to not take every project that comes along and not work six-day weeks, 12-hour days so he can keep pace with Ms. Hightower's thirst for Stella McCartney?"

The lawyer, who admonished Grace for allegedly spending over $1 million on jewelry in 2019, added, "[De Niro] could get sick tomorrow, and the party's over."

De Niro's lawyer contended that the two-time Oscar winner is millions behind on his taxes and noted that the money he makes from his next two films needs to go toward that. But, Grace's lawyer said De Niro is supposed to pay her so she can "maintain the status quo" lifestyle she has become accustomed to.

"If he wants to direct or compel his family to leave their longtime home while he's spending millions and millions and millions on himself, on his own homes, on renovating what his lawyers tongue-and-cheek call his cottage in Montauk, which he has poured millions and millions into over the past couple of years, he can take that position," her lawyer said. "There have been no cutbacks and no slowdowns in Mr. De Niro's lifestyle whatsoever. When Mr. De Niro goes to brunch Sunday in Connecticut, he charters a helicopter up there. When he flies down to see his friends in Florida or wherever else, it's a private jet."

The amount of money being fought over was not lost on the judge in the case. 

"I want to get these parties divorced," Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Matthew Cooper said. "I want to get Ms. Hightower and Mr. De Niro to go their separate ways. They will still come out of this richer than almost any human being who walks this Earth."

Earlier in the hearing, Page Six said the judge reminded both sides, "There is nothing ordinary about these expenses. For 99.9999 percent of the world, these are extraordinary to an almost unimaginable degree."

Ring thing

Bella Thorne buys engagement ring for fiancé

Bella Thorne plays by her own rules.

Back in March, the actress' beau, Ben Mascolo, popped the question with a huge diamond ring. On April 16, Bella answered in kind.

"She got me an engagement ring," he captioned a series of images that show him donning a gold band. One image actually shows Bella on one knee after putting the ring on his finger. 

Fans loved the images of Bella gifting Ben with a ring, with many saying it was "perfect." While Ben's ring is pretty, it doesn't compare to the bauble he presented to Bella, which experts say is upwards for 4 carats. Depending on the clarity of the stones in the ring, it's valued at about $100,000 or more. 

Ben announced the engagement on Instagram on March 20 with several images. Two days later, Bella posted several snaps from that magical evening.

"You would have said yes too," she wrote alongside the pictures. Ben commented, "That's the luckiest man on the planet right there."
