Richard Madden and Ellie Bamber split after 'daily' arguments

Richard Madden and girlfriend Ellie Bamber have split after 18 months together.

News of the split comes just days after the actor took home a Golden Globe for his work on "The Bodyguard." Many observers noticed that Richard attended the show without Ellie.

Britain's The Sun, who first reported the split, said Richard, 32, and Ellie, 21, simply no longer saw eye to eye.

"They're both absolutely gutted but it was a decision made for the best. They were arguing almost daily towards the end and, despite considering couples' therapy, it became evident there were far too many issues that could not be fixed," a source told The Sun. "Richard is the toast of Hollywood at the moment, and understandably wants to let his hair down."

The source added that Ellie isn't looking to hobnob.

"Ellie is a bit quieter, and wants to focus purely on her work," the source said. "It felt like their day-to-day lives were increasingly becoming worlds apart."

The Mirror indicated that she's the one who ultimately pulled the plug.

In the early days of their relationship, they was inseparable. His career, though, has changed that.

"Being away [filming] puts a strain on family and friends," he told Red magazine.

Like Richard, Ellie has seen a rise in stardom after starring in "Nocturnal Animals" and "The Nutcracker And The Four Realms." Richard, though, has a stratospheric increase in popularity, thanks in part to his Globe win for Best Actor in a Television Drama. There are also reports that he is in the running to be the next James Bond.

"It's really flattering to be in the conversation," he told KTLA. "People just make up lots of things, but it's very lovely to be in the conversation. It's very flattering."

Acceptance or nah?

Lisa Rinna 'tried really hard' to accept daughter's romance with Scott Disick

It's no secret that Lisa Rinna was frustrated when her then-teenage daughter began dating Scott Disick last year, but she's trying to stay diplomatic about it.


While appearing on "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen," the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star was asked to reveal the "worst thing" she said about Scott "behind his back."

"You know, I've actually been quite nice about Scott Disick," she said after taking a pause to think about her answer. "And I would never say that out loud, anything. I might have thought things that weren't very good. Can I atone for my thoughts?"

She added, "I wasn't mean. Listen, I tried really hard. I was really patient, and I tried really hard. We'll leave it at that."

Lisa famously said during an episode of the Bravo show last month that she would have preferred her daughter Amelia Gray Hamlin to date someone like Harry Styles, not Scott.

Amelia was 19 when she began dating Scott, 38, in October 2020. The pair lasted nearly a year, but they ultimately split after the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star's private message about ex Kourtney Kardashian was outed by another one of her exes, Younes Bendjima.

The drama over the message called his romance with Amelia, now 20, into question, as he seemed jealous over Kourtney's romance with Travis Barker. Amid the fallout from the DM, many of Amelia's Instagram followers bombarded her social media and urged her to end things with Scott. She did.

"The breakup was coming, but the Younes DM was the final straw," a source told TMZ at the time. 

After the split, several outlets reported that Lisa commented on an Instagram post about the breakup with a smiley face emoji.

Picture issue

Former 'Bachelor' favorite sues Proctor & Gamble over picture usage

Former "Bachelor" star Hannah Ann Sluss is trying to clean up her image.

According to TMZ, the reality star has filed a lawsuit against Proctor & Gamble, CVS Pharmacy, Target and Walmart, claiming that one of her old modeling photos is still be used to sell Downy laundry products, even though her contract with Proctor & Gamble, which makes Downy, has expired.

Hannah states in her lawsuit that she allowed Proctor & Gamble to use her image on a single product from Oct. 1, 2017, to Oct. 1, 2019. She alleged that the company has continued to use the image, especially after she gained prominence from "The Bachelor."

She argues that her image is now being used on six products, despite the licensing contract ending two years ago. 

TMZ says that one thing particularly irksome to Hannah is her image being associated with a tagline that reads, "Life Gets Stinky." The reality TV star says that campaign is "especially egregious because it associated [her] with the word 'stinky.'"


In her lawsuit, she's asking a judge to order Proctor & Gamble to stop using her likeness to sell the product, and she wants the judge to order the department stores to stop selling items with her face on them.

Hannah gained fame in early 2020 while appearing on Peter Weber's season of "The Bachelor." The 25-year-old was initially picked as the winner of the 24th season and Peter proposed. She said yes. Hannah and Peter split before the finale actually aired.

White house confusion

Nicki Minaj claims she's been invited to White House over vaccine stance

Nicki Minaj claimed on Twitter that she was invited to the White House to discuss her viral stance on the COVID vaccine, but a government official says otherwise. 


"The White House has invited me & I think it's a step in the right direction. Yes, I'm going. I'll be dressed in all pink like Legally Blonde so they know I mean business," she tweeted on Sept. 15. "I'll ask questions on behalf of the ppl who have been made fun of for simply being human."

Nicki Minaj caused quite a stir this week over her position on the COVID-19 vaccine, and it had to do with, among other things, her cousin's friend's testicles and a canceled wedding. 

"My cousin in Trinidad won't get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent," she wrote. "His testicles became swollen. His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding. So just pray on it & make sure you're comfortable with ur decision, not bullied." 

The claim got so much attention that health officials in the United States and Trinidad had to publicly debunk it, as both indicated impotence is not a side effect. 

After Nicki's White House claims, an official told Fox News that a visit to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. wasn't actually offered, but rather a phone call with a doctor was. Nicki, however, insisted that she got a White House invitation.

"Do y'all think that I would go on the Internet and lie about being invited to the … White House?" she said in a lengthy Instagram Live session.

Despite her tweet saying she was going, the rapper implied in her video that she likely wouldn't go to D.C. because she didn't want to travel, but she reiterated that a phone call took place regarding an invite.

"I said, 'Well, I would rather not have to travel, can we do something like a [Instagram] Live' and they said that they're open to me choosing a platform to do a Live but they never have taken that off the table for me to come to the White House," she maintained. 

Nicki's stance, particularly the one regarding her cousin's friend's testicles, was the subject of much online ridicule, and late night hosts also couldn't help but comment on it.

The "Starships" singer later said she was in "Twitter jail" over her stance. 

"I'm in Twitter jail y'all," she said on Instagram. "They didn't like what I was saying over there on that block…"

She later added: "Look at what they just did. I will never use Twitter again. First of all, I didn't give any facts about any vaccine… I didn't give any facts about anything."

A Twitter rep told BuzzFeed that the social media company "did not take any enforcement action in the account."

Sharon Osbourne details mutually abusive relationship with Ozzy

Sharon Osbourne and Ozzy Osbourne called a truce two decades ago after a long stretch of horrific physical fights, she's revealing.

The former "The Talk" co-host opened up about her once-volatile marriage, telling "DailyMailTV" that the duo's fights were "legendary," adding that they used to "beat the s–t out of each other."

She added, "We stopped, must be, 20 years ago. But we had a good run."

The couple have spoken about violence within their relationship before. Last year, in the documentary "Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne," the rocker opened up about the time he once tried to strangle and kill Sharon in 1989 while he was on drugs. 

"I felt the calmest I had ever felt in my life. It was like serenity. I was just peaceful. … All I remember is waking up in [England's] Amersham jail, and I asked the cop, 'Why am I here?' And he says, 'You want me to read your charge?' So he read, 'John Michael Osbourne, you have been arrested for attempted murder,'" Ozzy recalled.

Sharon added, "We'd had a couple of fights and you can tell it was building to something, you could just feel it." Sharon claimed Ozzy lunged at her and said, "We've come to a decision that you've got to die.

The couple had earlier installed a panic button, and it was near Sharon, so she pushed it. The police arrived and Ozzy was thrown in jail. Sharon opted not to press charges. 

"It was probably the most frightened I've ever been," she continued. "I told him, 'I don't want the money … but if you do this again, either I am going to kill you or you are going to kill me. And do you want that for the kids?'"

Harkening back to that moment, Ozzy called it "not exactly one of my greatest achievements."

Shark city!

Orlando Bloom paddleboards next to Great White Shark in insane video

Orlando Bloom came scarily close to swimming with sharks without a cage recently.

The actor went paddleboarding in Malibu, Calif., on Sept. 14 and a huge great white shark started swimming next to him, something that would strike fear into most people, but not necessarily Orlando.

"Paddle Boarding With Great Whites," he captioned an Instagram aerial video, which was captured by a friend. 

At several moments in the minute-long video, the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star, paddling from his knees for stability, appeared to look down and monitor the shark's swimming. 

Orlando, who seems calm during the video, added in his Instagram caption, "When fear becomes your friend."

After sharing the video, Orlando's followers reacted with disbelief. "Helllll naw," rapper 2Chainz replied. "It's a nope from me!," another person said. Several others noted how beautiful the images looked with shark casually swimming in the thankfully-waveless water.

The man who took the video, who goes by the name The Malibu Artist, replied, "Awesome day man! You got some good looks of a large juvenile white shark. Happy for you! Something you'll never forget. Very calm shark just chilling in Malibu!"

The Malibu Artist also posted a snippet of a video on his own Instagram, writing, "In this clip, I filmed @orlandobloom next to a nicely sized juvenile white shark. The opportunity to share some of my knowledge with Orlando, knowledge I've gained from the many scientists I've been fortunate enough to talk to and work with, was a highlight of my day. In the end, the real stars of the sea are the sharks. But having Legolas himself nearby. That's pretty cool!"

award anger

Ed Sheeran rips U.S. awards shows: 'Filled with resentment and hatred'

Ed Sheeran finds nothing rewarding about American award shows.

On the heels of his performance at the MTV VMAs, the pop singer spoke to radio host Julia on her Audacy segment "The Julia Show," and he ripped award shows in the U.S., saying, "The room is filled with resentment and hatred toward everyone else."

He adds, "It's quite an uncomfortable atmosphere."

The British pop star claimed that fellow stars are usually great and friendly, but their entourages and teams can be vile, unkind and entitled.

"All the artists are sweet people, but they're, like, surrounded by entourages that want them to win, too, so it's one artist surrounded by 10 people and another artist surrounded by 10 people and everyone is kind of giving each other the side-eye," he said. 

The tension isn't completely there for show like the VMAs, he argues, but it is palpable at higher-end award shows like the Grammys, American Music Awards and Billboard Music Awards.

"It's nothing to do with MTV or the award show, it's at all the other awards shows," Ed, 33, said. "It's just lots of people wanting other people to fail and I don't like that."

Things are less intense at shows in the United Kingdom, where Ed is from. 

"In England, our award shows are just like everyone gets drunk and no one really cares who wins or loses, it's just sort of a good night out," he said.

Further, Ed asserts that the afterparties in the U.K. are far more fun than those in the United States.

"The afterparties, again … it's not just musicians. It's musicians, all their entourages, then you got influencers and blah blah blah," he said. "People get the same feeling as me at those award shows. I've spoken to people and they're like, 'I just felt really depressed afterward.' The atmosphere is just not nice… It's a really, really horrible atmosphere to be in there. I always walk away feeling sad and I don't like it."

For the record, this isn't a case of sour grapes — Ed has won four Grammys, one AMA and seven Billboard Music Awards. Wikipedia claims he's actually won 117 various awards throughout the course of his career. 

Fight fallout

Tarek El Moussa reflects on blowout fight with ex Christina Haack

Tarek El Moussa is coming clean about a blowout fight he had with his ex-wife, Christina Haack, on the set of "Flip or Flop" over the summer. 

Back in July, reports said Tarek lost it on the set of the HGTV show and ripped Christina, claiming he "made" her and dubbed her a "washed-up loser." The fight was so bad that the duo had to film their scenes separately.


While speaking to E!'s Daily Pop, Tarek regretting his role in the verbal blowout.

"Christina and I, we worked together, wow, for over 10 years now and we've been working together as exes for five years now," he said. "As you can imagine, it can be stressful working with an ex and we did have an incident where some choice words were said on both sides and I'm sure we both wish the whole thing never happened."

He added, "I mean, I certainly do, but I mean, honestly, since we got into that little disagreement a few months back, I've just decided that moving forward, never again."

TMZ said behind-the-scenes spats between the former couple have happened before. During the fight over the summer, the webloid said at the time, Tarek was incredibly angry with his ex after she admitted to smoking toad venom before meeting her new boyfriend Joshua Hall. Tarek believed Christina's decision was reckless, considering they have two children, Taylor, 10, and son Brayden, 5.

"I never want to go through that ever again, I never want her to go through that again," Tarek said of the fight. "I know one day our kids are going to be older and I want them to know that we still care about each other and we still support each other, and it's really important to me. The whole thing just sucked for everyone involved."

Christina and Tarek split in 2016 and finalized their divorce in 2018. She later married Ant Anstead, with whom she has a third child. She and Ant divorced in June 2021. Tarek is engaged to "Selling Sunset" star Heather Rae Young.

Ladder rescue

Reba McEntire rescued from building after collapse

Reba McEntire had to be rescued by the fire department after a staircase collapsed in a building that she was touring. 

According to TMZ, the country icon and her boyfriend, Rex Linn, were touring an old building in Atoka, Okla., when it started to partially crumble and a staircase collapsed.  


The building, which was over 100 years old, was being renovated and the stairs were on the docket to be replaced, a local official said. Reba and several others were on the second floor when the incident happened on Sept. 14. 

Why she was touring the building isn't known. There's also a question as to why anyone was let inside the building if officials knew the structure was compromised, as evidenced by the fact the stairs were set to be replaced due to deficiencies. 

A local reporter videoed Reba being led down a ladder from a second-story window. 

"Close call for @reba in Atoka, Oklahoma Tuesday (9/14/21) Sure glad she and boyfriend Rex Linn are ok!," the reporter tweeted alongside the video of the rescue. "While touring an old building, a staircase collapsed. They were among seven people inside. Atoka's finest came to the rescue. No one hurt, just some bumps and bruises."

TMZ said one person was transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

In addition to the second story stairs, reports said the third story stairs also collapsed, trapping others higher up in the building. They were all rescued without much incident.

Fight night

G-Eazy arrested in NYC following alleged bar brawl: Report

G-Eazy has been arrested following a violent bar brawl that occurred in New York City over the weekend.

TMZ said the rapper is facing a misdemeanor assault charge for his alleged involvement in an apparent melee. Prior to the arrest, G-Eazy had been listed as a suspect.


During the weekend fight, one person went to the hospital and was treated with stitches after being hit in the head with a glass bottle during the alleged altercation at the Standard Hotel, reports indicate. Page Six reported that the injured man is socialite Daniel Chetrit, who was at the hotel's bar supporting influencer friend Zack Bia as he deejayed the evening. (Daniel is pals with Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner.)

TMZ added that the "No Limit" rapper and his friends were at the hotel when they took issue with a few other guys, which is when the man — supposedly Daniel — was hit with the bottle. The brawl soon moved outside. There, G-Eazy allegedly punched another man in the head, but that victim reportedly refused medical treatment.

"They are two super-interconnected groups. They're all friends, and something set someone off, and G-Eazy's crew ended up bottling one of Zack Bia's friends [Daniel]," an insider told Page Six. "Zack had nothing to do with it. He was just there. One of G-Eazy's friends smashed a bottle over Daniel's head."

A day after the alleged incident, G-Eazy attended the MTV Video Music Awards.
