Grab a case of energy drinks, my friends, because we have a lot of gossip to catch up on!
We’ve got major updates on Britney Spears, some spicy gossip about our favorite young Hollywood couples, and the tweetstorm that pitted Donald Trump against Chrissy Teigen.
Britney’s conservatorship was under investigation after her ex-husband Kevin Federline was granted a restraining order against Jamie Spears. K-Fed felt it was necessary to protect his boys after Spears allegedly got into a fight with Sean Preston (13) and broke down a door in order to shake his grandson.
Things moved quickly after that, and we learned on Friday that Jamie Spears requested to temporarily step down as his daughter’s keeper. Now, her long-time care manager Jodi Montgomery has been confirmed as her official conservator through at least January of 2020.
Britney’s medical treatment is now also under investigation, as her psychiatrist passed away suddenly from an aneurysm. There are questions about whether she received the best, most appropriate care for her mental health. As always, we’re on team #FreeBritney and hope that she’s able to get whatever help she needs.
Trump might consider himself a master of social media, but he clearly hasn’t met Chrissy Teigen. During a late-night Twitter rant, the president claimed that he had single-handedly pushed through a criminal justice reform bill. Trump seemed disgruntled that other people, such as “boring musician” John Legend and his “filthy mouthed wife” were now trying to take credit.
Apparently, Trump had blocked Chrissy on Twitter back in July of 2017, but she still found out about the message. And she thinks it’s hilarious. Chrissy fired back with her trademark brand of sass and exercised her First Amendment rights by calling the president a series of names that we can’t print here.
Do you know who else laughs off hurtful words? The Good Place star Jameela Jamil. For years, she’s been an outspoken critic of social media influencers who promote negative body image and potentially harmful diet products. When you come at the Kardashians, you should be prepared for backlash–but Jameela says that she no longer cares about what other people think of her.
In a recent interview with Access Hollywood, Jameela praised Demi Lovato for posting an un-Photoshopped bikini photo. She also double-down on her “I don’t care” attitude, explaining that she no longer felt it was her responsibility to make people like her. Instead, she’s focused on her body-positive campaign “I Weigh” to help promote the idea that women should be valued for something other than their weight.
Let’s end on a happy note, shall we? This weekend, two of our favorite young Hollywood couples made minor headlines. First, Timothee Chalamet and Lily-Rose Depp caused a splash when photos of them making out on a boat near Capri, Italy, surfaced.
The pair–who have remained coy on the exact nature of their relationship–were clearly enjoying themselves after the Venice Film Festival. Lily-Rose wore a leopard-print string bikini in the candid shots, while Timothee rocked a pair of neon orange swim trunks.
The other couple making news this weekend? None other than Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart! Real-life BugHead is back on! The pair apparently split briefly in July, but they’re back and planning a couples Halloween costume. Lili even called him her boyfriend on Instagram, so you know it’s for real.
