Orlando Bloom says he was celibate for six months

Orlando Bloom is getting candid about his sex life — or lack thereof — prior to meeting fiancée Katy Perry.

In a new interview with the U.K.'s The Sunday Times, the actor shares that he was celibate for the six months before he met the singer.

Not happy in his life at the time, he confided in his friend, surfer Laird Hamilton, who advised him to take a break from physical intimacy.

"If you want to be serious about a relationship, go celibate for a few months and figure it out," Orlando recalled of his pal's suggestion. "It takes away the idea of going to a party and thinking, 'Who am I going to meet?' I was suddenly like, 'Oh, I can have a relationship with a woman that is just friends.'"

Originally, he planned to remain celibate for three months, but eventually, he found himself "enjoying" the way he was relating to women and to "the feminine within" himself. He added that he did not seek pornography as a substitution for real physical intimacy during this period.

After crossing paths with Katy at the 2016 Golden Globes, during which the two "connected," his celibacy ceased.

"She's very surprising," he said of the pop star, who is currently pregnant with their first child together. "She's witty and smart and intelligent. She's charismatic, but she's direct too, and this dynamic was intriguing to me."

The couple intended to marry in early summer in Japan, but their plans are reportedly on hold due to COVID-19.

It's over

Jennifer Garner and John Miller split: Report

Jennifer Garner moved on from her divorce from Ben Affleck with businessman John Miller. But after nearly two years of dating, the pair has quietly called it quits, a new report reveals.


In Touch magazine reported on Aug. 6 that Jen and John's romance ended shortly before California locked down amid the coronavirus pandemic.

They "are no longer together," a source told In Touch, which broke the news. "They split up before L.A. went into lockdown." However, the source added, "Jen and John remain on friendly terms so there's a possibility that they could rekindle their relationship in the future, but right now it's over."

News that Jen was dating someone following the demise of her decade-long marriage to Ben first made headlines in October 2018 when Us Weekly identified John, the CEO of CaliGroup — which owns Miso Robotics and about 50 restaurants in the CaliBurger chain — as her new boyfriend. At the time, the pair had been dating for about six months, Us revealed.

So what went wrong? Back in March, a different source told In Touch that Jen and John were "doing great," explaining that the businessman — who, like Jen, is divorced and a parent — has "a separate life from Jen's Hollywood world, so it works for them."

In Touch reports that a third source revealed in April that while Jen was quarantining with her three kids, John had been "self-isolating with his [kids]" and that the pair had not "seen much" of each other because of the COVID-19 health crisis.


TMZ entered the fray on Aug. 6, speculating that newly single Jen could be interested in former "Alias" co-star Bradley Cooper. The webloid published photos of Jen on the beach in Malibu chatting with Bradley and his daughter, Lea, whose mom is model Irina Shayk. Bradley and Irina split in 2019.

TMZ characterized Jen and Bradley's interactions as "flirty."

Bella Hadid criticizes NYPD officers for not wearing masks

Bella Hadid is not happy with some members of the NYPD.


The supermodel took to her Instagram Stories on Aug. 5 to share her frustrations with — and pictures of — two groups of New York City police officers who weren't wearing masks or facial coverings while on duty amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The first photo she shared — Page Six posted the images — shows Bella wearing a black mask and looking to the side as three uniformed NYPD officers look at the camera in the background. They are standing next to each other and their faces are not covered, Bella pointed out to her 32 million Instagram followers. "WEAR A MASK," she wrote atop the photo, adding with arrows pointing to the officers, "u guys look goofy."

In a second photo, she went a little further: Angry Bella can be seen flipping the bird to another group of officers — five this time — who are standing across the street from her in a group. They appear to be several feet apart from each other in a circle.

Bella wrote "WEAR A MASK" again on that one and this time added "hi @nypd masks are for all of our safety, not just urs…:)."

Marriage issues

Kimye reportedly holed up in remote 'fortress' while trying to save marriage

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West have gone on a completely off-the-grid vacation in what's basically being described as a last-ditch effort to save their six-year marriage.

TMZ reports that the couple and their children boarded a private jet earlier this week and "flew to a tropical island outside the country." 

Kim and Kanye's marriage has been under a microscope of late, particularly given his Twitter rants and the fact that they've reportedly spent very little time together over the past few months — she's been in Los Angeles with the kids, while he's been living at the family's $14 million ranch in Wyoming. Multiple reports said he was even ignoring Kim's calls for a few days. Kanye also tweeted last month that he's been eyeing a divorce, though he later deleted the headline-making tweet.

While the couple essentially lives in front of cameras, this marriage-defining trip was specifically planned so that it would not be interrupted by paparazzi. Kim had also previously banned reality TV cameras from capturing Kanye in his current state of mind, so it's unlikely the trip will appear on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."

Sources close to Kim and Kanye said the family is staying in a "fortress" and "an estate that is so remote, it's virtually impossible for trespassers to get close."

Since the family headed off to the unspecified location, there has been radio silence from them. TMZ added that this is not expected to be a quick trip either.

The getaway, TMZ reported on Aug. 3, is "a private family vacation to try and work things out." The website adds that this vacation "will be a time for [Kanye] to prove … he's willing to change for his family."

One of the things most certainly being discussed is Kanye's long shot presidential bid. Page Six said earlier in the week that Kim has urged the rapper to end his campaign for the sake of the family, but he has actually dug his heels in harder.

"Kim begged Kanye to stop his presidential thing, to stop talking about their kids at rallies. But he ignored her and instead he went ahead and hired more people … and tried to register in more states," a source said, adding that Kanye "just won't stop" in his desire to become the next POTUS.

Prior to the current vacation, the duo reunited briefly in Wyoming. It didn't look like a happy reunion, though — paparazzi photos last week showed Kim crying while she and Kanye appeared to be involved in a heated discussion.

"This is a nightmare for Kim, she is looking for a way out," Page Six's source said. "But she's also a nice person and wants to do the best for her kids."

Instagram dig

Brian Austin Green shades Megan Fox over Instagram post with MGK

Megan Fox can put away those the sunglasses, because her ex Brian Austin Green is throwing some shade in her direction.

Just hours after Megan gushed over her new beau Machine Gun Kelly on Instagram, the "Beverly Hills, 90210" star certainly appeared to have something to say to his ex, to whom he was married for 10 years.

On Wednesday morning, Megan posted a black-and-white image of herself and MGK with towels wrapped around their waists.

"Achingly Beautiful Boy … My heart is yours," she captioned the image. 

In a bit of a troll, Brian took to Instagram a few hours later to share a slideshow of photos of the three kids he and Megan share: Noah, 7, Bodhi, 6, and Journey, 4. His 18-year-old son Kassius, whom he shares with ex Vanessa Marcil, was also included in the series of images.

Achingly beautiful boys…… My heart is yours

His caption: "Achingly beautiful boys…… My heart is yours."

See what he did there?

Brian recently opened up about his split from Megan and her new romance on the "Hollywood Raw" podcast.

"I wish Megan the absolute best in everything. I want her to be completely happy, for her and for the kids. That's super important," he said. "Nobody wants to be around somebody that's unhappy, nothing good comes out of that. That's a terrible situation. We are taking it day by day."

During the chat, in which he dished on his single life, he was asked how he found out about Megan's romance with MGK.

"I found out in my own way. And that's as much detail as I'll give you on that one," he said, simply adding that he, "didn't read about it or anything like that."

Last month, Megan swooned over MGK.

"A twin flame is actually where a soul has ascended into a high enough level that it can be split into two different bodies at the same time," she said on the "Give Them Lala…with Randall" podcast. "So we're actually two halves of the same soul, I think. And I said that to him almost immediately, because I felt it right away."

Jay Cutler deletes Instagram after Kristin Cavallari's post with ex

On the same day that Kristin Cavallari reunited with her high school sweetheart, Jay Cutler seems to have deleted his Instagram.


The former NFL quarterback's IfJayHadInstagram account has suddenly vanished without explanation.

The move comes after Kristin posted a photo with Stephen Colletti, her ex-boyfriend from "Laguna Beach," the MTV reality show that aired from 2004-2006.

"2004 or 2020?!" she captioned the image on Tuesday.

While TMZ reported nothing romantic is going on between Kristin and Stephen, the photo whipped fans into a frenzy, with many pleading for a reconciliation. 

"Jersey Shore" star Snooki wrote, "Omg i am here for this." Her co-star Angelina Pivarnick wrote, "Get your man girl."

Earlier this year, Kristin and Jay announced that they were splitting after a decade together

In May, Jay's Instagram caught the eye of many after he appeared to praise Kristin on Mother's Day. But fans were quick to point out that Kristin has said she actually runs Jay's Instagram account.

"I think there needs to be a little clarification on Jay's Instagram," she told For The Win in 2018. "It's not him running it. It's me. It's what Jay would have if he had Instagram."


FBI raids YouTube star Jake Paul's home over incident during BLM protest

A slew of federal agents raided Jake Paul's home on Wednesday morning after obtaining a search warrant, and the raid is directly related to the YouTube star's actions during a George Floyd protest in Arizona.

Details of the morning raid are sparse, but video from ABC 7 appeared to show officials removing firearms from Jake's home.


A spokesman for the FBI told TMZ, "The FBI is investigating allegations of criminal acts surrounding the incident at Scottsdale Fashion Square in May, 2020."

Social media video from May 30 showed Jake inside the Fashion Square shopping center in Scottsdale, Arizona, while looters stole merchandise and vandalized stores during after hours. Amid ensuing backlash, Jake maintained he was merely "documenting" the mall break-in, not partaking in the rioting. Less than a week later, police charged him with criminal trespass and unlawful assembly, both misdemeanors. However, that case was dropped, but TMZ now theorizes that was likely done at the behest of the FBI for a more serious investigation to take place.

On Wednesday morning, photos showed multiple authorities blocking off Jake's home in Calabasas, California.

"We understand that a search warrant was executed at Jake's Calabasas home this morning while Jake was out-of-state," the YouTuber's attorney said. "We are still gathering information and will cooperate with the investigation."

In the Calabasas raid, TMZ said "at least 20" federal agents were involved, and many of the agents wore tactical gear and arrived in armored vehicles. 

Not coincidentally, Las Vegas police exercised a search warrant at the home of one of Jake's best friends on Wednesday, as well. The owner of the Vegas home was with Jake in Arizona (that same friend "officiated" Jake's faux wedding to Tana Mongeau last year.) Video showed several people leaving the Vegas home in handcuffs.

The raids came a few weeks after Jake, known for his outlandish and borderline-illegal stunts, angered his neighbors by throwing a party during which social distancing wasn't practiced and face masks appeared to be an afterthought. Video from the mid-July bash showed throngs of young people partying inside and outside of Jake's mansion. Neighbors said the party went on all day and all night. 

"It wasn't just myself who was outraged, it was everyone who saw the video," Calabasas Mayor Alicia Weintraub told Fox 11 at the time.

The mayor said her office was flooded with calls from angry residents.

"They're having this large party, no social distancing, no masks, it's just a big huge disregard for everything that everybody is trying to do to get things back to functioning," the mayor said. "It's really just a party acting like COVID does not exist, it's acting that businesses aren't closed."

Following the party, local authorities announced that there would be a zero-tolerance policy on house parties in the city in violation of health orders.

California has had nearly 10,000 deaths attributed to the coronavirus, and the state averaged more than 7,500 new COVID-19 cases over the last week, according to the California Department of Public Health.

'Laguna' reunion

2004 or 2020?!

A post shared by Kristin Cavallari (@kristincavallari) on

Kristin and Stephen famously dated on "Laguna Beach," MTV's super-popular reality TV show that aired from 2004 to 2006.

As fans clamored for more information, TMZ reported that nothing romantic happened. 

"There's no rekindling of their old relationship," the website said. "They've simply remained good friends since their split many years ago."

Kristin also met up with former "Laguna Beach" star Alex Murrel while in the O.C.

Regardless, fans flooded Kristin's Instagram, and many of them pleaded for the high school sweethearts to get back together. Even "Jersey Shore" star Snooki wrote, "Omg i am here for this."

"Laguna Beach" launched Kristin into reality TV superstardom, as she was later cast on "The Hills" and eventually got her own show, "Very Cavallari," which she starred in with her estranged husband, former NFL quarterback Jay Cutler. 

Dr. Dre's estranged wife fighting prenup in high stakes divorce

Dr. Dre's estranged wife, Nicole Young, is challenging a prenuptial agreement from 1996, claiming she "unwillingly" signed the documents amid pressure from the rapper and his team.


In divorce documents obtained by TMZ, Nicole also claims Dre is actually far wealthier than most believe, listing his net worth at $1 billion — which is about $200 million higher than previously reported.

"I was extremely reluctant, resistant and afraid to sign the agreement and felt backed into a corner," she wrote in her new court filing amid the couple's increasingly contentious divorce. "Given the extraordinary pressure and intimidation by Andre, I was left with no option but to hire a lawyer (of course, with the help of Andre's team of professionals) and unwillingly signed the agreement very shortly before our marriage."

Two years into the marriage, Nicole contends that the rapper admitted he forced her to sign the prenup.

"Andre acknowledged to me that he felt ashamed he had pressured me into signing a premarital agreement and he tore up multiple copies of the agreement in front of me," she wrote. "Since the day he tore up the agreements, we both understood that there was no premarital agreement, and that it was null and void."

Sources close to Dre, though, tell TMZ that this is all false and deny that the hip-hop mogul ever tore up an agreement or expressed regret over the prenup. 

"Nicole had her own lawyer and she had a clear choice on whether to sign or not," TMZ reported, citing Dre sympathizers.


Nicole is asking the judge to separate the divorce from the prenup — meaning she wants a bigger piece of the pie.

In late June, Nicole filed divorce paperwork, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. In her divorce filing, Nicole, a lawyer, didn't mention that a prenuptial agreement existed. However, Dre legally responded to the filing a few weeks later. In his response, he agreed to pay his ex her requested spousal support but said their division of property should be governed by their prenup. 


Employees hit Lisa Vanderpump with lawsuit over alleged unpaid wages

Lisa Vanderpump and her husband, Ken Todd, are being sued for allegedly failing to pay overtime wages to employees at one of their made-for-TV restaurants.


On Tuesday, Page Six obtained a class-action lawsuit brought on by a former hostess at SUR, the restaurant at the center of "Vanderpump Rules." The legal paperwork alleges that employees were forced to work more than 40 weekly hours — or even seven consecutive workdays — without receiving overtime pay. 

The lawsuit, which also names Lisa's business partners, Guillermo and Nathalie Zapata, further alleged a shoddy operation at SUR, claiming that staff hours are not properly tracked and are manipulated. Employees are also not granted breaks, the lawsuit says. 


In January 2020, Lisa and her husband were sued for similar reasons, but in that lawsuit, the allegations of financially shorting staffers weren't limited to just SUR: Their other restaurants — Tom Tom, Pump and Villa Blanca — were also included. The case is still ongoing, Page Six reported, noting that Villa Blanca has since closed.

The newest lawsuit comes less than two months after Bravo announced that "Vanderpump Rules" stars Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni will not return to the hit reality show amid past racists actions and tweets. 

After the firings, Lisa said, "I love and adore our employees and I am deeply saddened by some of the lack of judgment that has been displayed."
