Gisele Bundchen talked to Variety about her split from Tom Brady. Here’s what she had to say; “Sometimes you grow together, sometimes you grow apart. “When I was 26 years old and he was 29 years old, we met, we wanted a family, we wanted things together. As time goes by, we realize that we just wanted different things, and now we have a choice to make. That doesn’t mean you don’t love the person. It just means that in order for you to be authentic and truly live the life that you want to live, you have to have somebody who can meet you in the middle, right?” She added, “When you love someone, you don’t put them in a jail and say, ‘You have to live this life.’ You set them free to be who they are, and if you want to fly the same direction, then that’s amazing.” She also touched upon her relationship with Bridget Moynahan, saying, “My goal was always, how can I be the most helpful? How can I make it the easiest I possibly can? I put myself in her shoes and I was like, ‘How can I support her?’ Because in the end of the day, we are team players in ‘How are we going to do this so [Jack] can have the best life?’”

Eight celebrities, including Lindsay Lohan and Jake Paul, have been charged for participating in an illegal crypto scheme by using their social platforms to promote without disclosing they were being paid to promote them. The other celebs charged include Austin Mahone and Ne-Yo. Lindsay paid $10,000 to the SEC and another $30,000 in penalties while Jake Paul was ordered to pay more than $100,000.

Joe Jonas and his brothers, Nick and Kevin, had just finished their sold-out concert at the Marquis Theater in NY, stopping to sign autographs for fans on the way out. One woman fell in the crushing crowd, and Joe stopped to help her up and make sure she was okay. He even posed for a pic with the lady, TMZ reports.  The Jonas Brothers have just finished their Broadway run, and they celebrated by throwing a last-minute bash with their new actor friends. According to Page Six, a source close to the boys said last minute invitations went out to the casts of “Moulin Rouge,” “Sweeney Todd,” and “Bad Cinderella.” They had the party at a Manhattan club called The Stranger, with pizzas delivered at 1 a.m. We probably won’t see any footage of the night since they asked party-goers to put their cell phones away, saying, “This one is just for us here tonight.”

We’ve heard a lot from Shakira after her split from Gerard Pique, her baby daddy and partner of ten years, but now he’s finally got something to say. In a recent interview, Girard said, "I keep doing what I want. The day I die, I will look back and hope I have always done what I wanted. I want to be faithful to myself." Well, he certainly hasn’t been faithful to anyone else, has he?

Former “Vanderpump Rules” star Jax Taylor is spilling the tea about his former best friend Tom Sandoval. On “Watch What Happens Live,” Jax was asked if Tom had cheated on Ariana Madix before, and he said, “Yes, 100 percent,” adding, “It doesn’t matter if he did it one or 10 times, he did it.” He even said that Tom serial cheated “within the last couple of years.” He also claims that Tom’s friend and business partner, Tom Schwartz, knew about the affair before it was made public, OK reports. Now, as far as the "Vanderpump Rules" reunion goes, it is being filmed in segments. Since Raquel’s restraining order is still in place against Scheana, the two had to switch off for the sit-downs with Andy Cohen and the rest of the cast, while the other one watched remotely from elsewhere in the building.

After almost three years together, Lady Gaga and Michael Polansky are done. A source said, "They broke up a few months ago. It was amicable. They're still friends.” Apparently, they were having disagreements about getting married and starting a family. She wanted to take the next steps while he wasn’t quite ready, causing "their relationship [to] hit a wall," okmagazine reports.

Hayden Panettiere wants to join the cast of “The White Lotus” for their third season. She tol E!, "I want to do it so bad. I want to do it, like Tom Cruise-jumping-on-Oprah's-couch bad.” She would want a part that somehow involves Jennifer Coolidge’s character from the show, Tanya McQuoid. Hayden said, "She is my favorite, I love her. I will be her anything—bag holder, shoe shiner, I will be her guardian angel, I will be her long-lost child. I will be whatever she wants me to be." Uhh… did she see the final episode of season two yet?

Is the US becoming a haven for fallen royalty? In the footsteps of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Denmark’s Prince Joachim is moving his family to the US following a fall-out with his brother, Crown Prince Frederik and Queen Margarethe, After stripping Joachim and Princess Marie’s four children of their royal titles, the Prince is moving to the States to work for the Danish embassy. Unlike Harry, however, Joachim will continue to be paid his royal stipend of $48,000 a month, even though he gets no salary for his work at the embassy. Prince Joachim is already estimated to be worth $275 million from his investments and property holdings, according to Page Six, so it looks like they can afford to look at the six-bedroom+ mansions at the very least.

Beyoncé and Adidas have mutually agreed to end their business relationship of her Ivy Park clothing line after it fell way below its 2022 sales projections of $250 million, bringing in only roughly $40 million for the year. Some have said Adidas should wait until Beyonce’s tour launches this year, but Adidas stood by its decision.

A man showed up to Rihanna's house with the intention of asking her to marry him. Apparently, the fact that she's in a happy and stable relationship with A$AP Rocky wasn't going to stand in this lovestruck man's way - but her security would. He had come from from South Carolina, and walked up to Rihanna's home Thursday where her security stopped him right away, according to TMZ. Ultimately, the police determined no laws were broken, but gave the man a warning and let him go, telling him returning would be a monumentally bad idea.

People are coming down on “Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak when the guy was just trying to be funny. First, Pat put contestant Fred Jackson in a wrestling hold. While people felt it was rude, Fred happens to be a pro wrestler, and he told TMZ he loved it, calling it one of the highlights of the whole show. On the next episode, Pat was slammed for insulting a contestant and rushing her to solve the puzzle. He said, "Please, solve the darn puzzle!" Once she did, he added, "It's a horrible moment when you know that ‘everyone in America knows what this is, why don’t I?’ But you got it. We appreciate that you pretended you didn’t know until the end, you increased the drama and that was great." See the video at okmagazine.com. In both instances, Pat was really just being playful, but you know those online trolls - they’re just looking for drama anywhere.

CeeLo Green tried to make a grand entrance into a birthday party honoring the late Shawty Lo, and boy did he. He decided to ride into the party on horseback. Unfortunately, the horse got nervous, jerked around, and slipped with CeeLo falling to the ground. He seemed to recover quickly, although there’s no word on the horse. I don’t think he’ll be taking calls from CeeLo anymore at the very least.
