|06:26 pm - Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart Break Up – for Now: Source|
Twilight fans may want to sit down for this one.
As rumors of relationship trouble continue to swirl, a source tells PEOPLE that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have called it quits after more than three years of dating. Reps for the two could not be reached.
But the source says it would not be surprising if the on-and-off-again pair got back together again.
The news follows online reports that Pattinson ditched out on his 27th birthday plans arranged by Stewart.
Prior to his birthday, the pair appeared to be on and going strong: They were seen in New York together after the Met Gala – and then flew back to Los Angeles together on May 8. They also recently celebrated Stewart's 23rd birthday together and held hands at Coachella – despite the actress's cheating scandal with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders last July.
Following the ordeal – which included a public apology from Stewart to Pattinson – the duo reunited less than two months later and appeared to be back to normal.
With the exception of some paparazzi kissing shots and Stewart's admission of her fling, after which she openly professed her love for Pattinson, the two never publicly addressed their romance.
Stewart was known for playing coy about her relationship in interviews, most recently telling Today's Savannah Guthrie she likes to "keep 'em guessing" about her love life.

|04:37 pm - Kanye West to Release New Album ‘Yeezus’ on June 18|
Yeezus is coming. After much anticipation, Kanye West will release his sixth solo album next month.
Rap-Up.com can confirm that the follow-up to 2010’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy will be titled Yeezus and arrive on June 18.
The G.O.O.D. Music rapper premiered a new song entitled “New Slaves” last night via projections on buildings in 10 cities across the world. The song, about modern day slavery, features vocals from Frank Ocean.
The 35-year-old West stirred speculation about the June 18 date with a tweet earlier this month.
During a trip to New York last month, the father-to-be stopped by his label Def Jam to play music. Hot 97 host Peter Rosenberg described the album as having a “dark” tone. “Everyone at the label listened to the album and loved it,” he said. “I heard it’s dark, but really good.”
Details surrounding his recording sessions remain scarce, but he has been in the studio with Daft Punk, who programmed drums for the album. “It was very raw: he was rapping—kind of screaming primally, actually,” Thomas Bangalter of the French duo told Rolling Stone. “Kanye doesn’t give a fuck.”
Kanye is expected to premiere new material during tonight’s season finale of “Saturday Night Live.”
|05:45 pm - Q&A: Simon Pegg on Star Trek Into Darkness, Life on Other Planets and Ugly Shirts of the Future|
In the Trek universe, it’s usually Spock and Kirk who get top billing. But it Simon Pegg’s Scotty—the starship engineer of “Beam me up!” fame—who truly breaks out in Star Trek Into Darkness (out May 16). Here, the 43-year-old actor, who’s also in Shaun of the Dead threequel The World’s End (out Aug. 23), talks with TIME.
TIME: You share screen time with aliens in both Star Trek and The World’s End. Do you personally believe they exist?
Simon Pegg: I think you’d be foolish not to, to be honest, with the statistics involved. There are billions and billions of planets. It’s like that quote about sowing an entire field of seeds and expecting there to be one to grow. I don’t believe that they’ll visit us. That’s beyond physical capabilities, with the distance between planets, let alone galaxies. It’s way, way too vast to travel in our timeframe. Even at warp speed. But the notion that there’s nothing out there is damn right arrogant and naïve.

|04:37 pm - For Sale: A Video of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Smoking Crack Cocaine|
CNN - "Toronto's mayor has purportedly been filmed on cellphone video smoking crack cocaine, the Toronto Star reported.
The footage appears to show Rob Ford "sitting in a chair, wearing a white shirt, top buttons open, inhaling from what appears to be a glass crack pipe," the newspaper says."
Gawker is trying to raise $200,000.00 to purchase the tape, so they can publish it online.
"We are raising the money to purchase the video and publish it so the citizens of Toronto can watch a startlingly clear video of their mayor smoking crack. The people who are selling it want money. But they also want security. During Cook's trip to Toronto earlier this week to view the tape, they told him that they will not feel safe in the city after the video comes out. Ford is a powerful man, with powerful friends, and these are young kids who fear a possible frame-up from Toronto cops or worse. The money they are asking for will, they say, cover their departure from Toronto to get set up in another city where they will feel safer. Right now, they are in hiding."
You can check out the fundraiser here. Rob Fords track record includes marijuanna charges. offering to buy drugs for a citizen, public intoxication, and a full conflict of interest case. You can checkout a full timeline of this controversies here.
Sources 1, 2, 3. 4.
Mods, I know Rob Ford isn't a 'celebrity' but he has been on this site at least 3 times that I can find (here, here and here). If this video is released this is going to be a HUGE scandal.
|11:46 am - Beyoncé's "Pregnant": The Five Things You'll Hear for the Next 9 Months |
The British have Kate Middleton, but across the pond, we've got Beyawncé. The fraudulent singer is with child, and it is time to succumb to the wildest rumors that will undoubtedly consume our thoughts until Bey's second baby is birthed. Did Beyoncé go to Cuba to become impregnated with Fidel Castro's child? Is this just part two in her plan to subvert the patriarchy with Illuminati children? In the span of nine months, we're going to hear all kinds of shit.
1. SURROGATE! SURROGATE!
Remember when Tamar Braxton, Toni Braxton's sister that no one cares about, kept telling people that she thought Beyoncé used a surrogate for Blue Ivy because of Beyoncé Stomach-foldgate? Get ready for round two. Hopefully, Braxton will blink into a camera somewhere and say the same thing about Baby #2 because there's no such thing as too many fake lashes and fake baby bump conspiracies.

|05:01 pm - Chelsea Opens Up About Adam, Taylor's Pregnancy, & What She'll Tell Aubree|
In Touch: Were you shocked to find out that Adam was expecting a child with his current girlfriend, Taylor Halbert?
Chelsea Houska: I was shocked when I found out that he was expecting another kid. He told me right away when he found out and I was just so upset for Aubree. I’m worried. What if that child gets more attention from him? I don’t want her to feel left out or anything like that.
IT: How did Adam tell you?
CH: He texted me and said that he had something to tell me and I immediately knew that’s what it was, so I called him and asked him if she was pregnant and he said, “Yeah.” I’m pretty sure I hung up because I was just so upset.
IT: Now that the news has sunk in, what are your thoughts about the situation?
CH: I’m happy for them. I just feel that he’s in a bad place right now and it’s probably not a good situation to bring a child into – especially since he has one.
IT: Have you or Adam told Aubree that she is going to be a big sister?
CH: I haven’t told her and I’m not sure if he’s told her. I think I’m going to wait a while to tell her. I don’t know what to do, so I have to wait a while. I’m sure she’ll be excited. She loves babies!
