Nicest Ex Ever! Jen Garner Picks Up A Cake On Ben Affleck's Birthday

Posted on Tue Aug 15th, 2017 2:20pm PDT       By X17 Staff


Someone give this woman a medal!

Jennifer Garner swung by a bakery in Brentwood this afternoon to pick up a cake, and we think it's no coincidence that it's Ben Affleck's birthday! Is she some sort of saint?

The Batman actor cheated on her with girlfriend Lindsay Shookus for years and broke up their marriage, and he's been parading his new lady love all over town in recent months. We guess this is Jen G taking the high road! It's also possible the actress was buying the sweet treat so her kids could surprise their dad with it.

She might be doing a great job at keeping things civil with the Oscar winner, but she's relieved to be done dealing with his problems, amid rumors he's back to boozing after his stint in rehab earlier this year.

"[Jen] feels like Ben’s drinking is Lindsay’s problem now. Of course, Jen worries about Ben’s health because is the father of her children [Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 5], but she feel slike she’s done everything she can to help him over the years. It’s Lindsay’s turn," a source dished to In Touch.

"Jen is very surprised that Lindsay is drinking around Ben. But she feels that ultimately it’s up to [Lindsay] how she wants to handle the situation,” the source added.

Jen is a class act, that's for sure!

 

Orlando Bloom Jets Out Of Town After Reuniting With Katy Perry

Posted on Tue Aug 15th, 2017 1:30pm PDT       By X17 Staff


He probably wants to get out of dodge before KP catches wind of him hanging with another chick!

Orlando Bloom caught a flight out of LAX this afternoon and was peppered with questions about his reconciliation with Katy Perry, but he kept quiet on the romance. Maybe that's because just one day after he attended Ed Sheeran's concert with the songstress, he was photographed frolicking at the beach with rumored flame Lindsay Friedman!

It sounds like the Pirates of the Caribbean star technically didn't do anything wrong, though, as he and the pop princess aren't back to being exclusive just yet.

"[Orlando] and Katy have been in touch since they broke up. They ended things as friends. They continue to be friends. Katy and Orlando aren’t back together, but they have history and are open to seeing what happens,” a source recently dished to People.

We guess it just depends on who you believe, because E! News says it's more serious than that.

"They have never cut communication since they broke up. They just took a break because it was the best thing for them at that time, [but they] are seeing each other again. Katy and Orlando want this to work this time, so they are working on mending their relationship. They've had some really good talks and have a better understanding on their needs. Time will tell at this point, but [things are] looking very positive," a source told the site.

Just one week ago, we caught Lindsay landing in LA with Orlando, but they separated when they spotted the cameras. You can't have your cake and eat it too, Orly!

 

Kim Apologizes For Defending Makeup Artist Jeffree Star Over His Past Racist Comments

Posted on Tue Aug 15th, 2017 12:20pm PDT       By X17 Staff



Well this was a terrible idea.

Kim Kardashian felt compelled to apologize this morning, after getting major backlash for defending makeup artist Jeffree Star over his past racist comments.

It all started when Star criticized Kimmy K for her makeup "swatching" techniques, and she acknowledged that she needed some practice. Fans pointed out Star's past use of the N-word and other slurs, and the reality star basically told everyone to get over it because he had apologized and shouldn't be held accountable for past mistakes.

"Guys, I see you being so petty and bringing up things in [Star's] past where he was negative, but he has also apologized for those things. I get [that] it's a serious deal if you say racial things, but I do believe in people changing, and people that apologize, I will give them the benefit of the doubt and accept that people change and move on," she said in a Snapchat video.

"I know better than anyone that I hate when people bring up my past or mistakes that I've made in the past. So let him live. I want to make one last thing clear: I do not defend people that are racist and I am very against it. But if someone claims that they have changed, I would love to give them the benefit of the doubt and I pray to God that they do change for the sake of my children and my friends," she added.

Needless to say, her followers were outraged! "Kim has black children but is telling us to "get over" someone being a racist," one user wrote. "Bye girl... I'm sure your kids are proud," wrote another. Ouch!

The KKW beauty founder quickly noticed that she was in hot water, and took to social media this morning to try and clear up the mess.

"I really wanted to apologize to you guys and my fans for defending a situation yesterday that I really didn't know enough about. I just feel a bit naïve and I do want to really apologize for me feeling like I had the right to say, 'Get over it,' in a situation that involves racism. I don't really feel like I have the right to speak on that. ... I really am sorry and I just want to move forward and be positive," she said.

We bet she wishes she had kept her trap shut! In case you missed it, here's why everyone is so pissed...

Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt Are NOT Getting Back Together, Despite Reports

Posted on Tue Aug 15th, 2017 11:20am PDT       By X17 Staff


We knew it was too good to be true!

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are NOT calling off their split, despite multiple reports to the contrary. TMZ claims their divorce is going full speed ahead, and the only reason they haven't finalized it yet is because they're still working out custody and property settlements.

The main reason they will never reconcile? The actress permanently damaged their relationship by alleging the War Machine star was an abusive father. We'd say that's pretty unforgivable!

We guess someone at Us Weekly talked to a bogus "insider," because they swore things were headed back in a romantic direction.

"She’s still so in love with him. He got sober to try and win her back. He knew he had a problem that he had to take care of. And that’s all she ever wanted. Everyone thinks they are going to get back together. It wouldn’t be surprising if they announced that they’re calling it off and trying to work things out," a source dished to the mag.

Brangelina will never be Brangelina again, and we have to get used to it.

Blac Chyna Acts Panicked When She Learns Kim Kardashian Posted About Dream On Instagram

Posted on Tue Aug 15th, 2017 10:30am PDT       By X17 Staff


No need to freak out, girl!

Blac Chyna looked ready to pounce into fierce mama bear mode when our videographer told her that Kim Kardashian had posted about Dream on Instagram, but as soon as she realized it was something cute, she relaxed and seemed flattered.

Kanye's wifey took to social media yesterday to poke fun at her own crying face, and used BC and brother Rob's baby girl as an example of how crying is actually done. "Even her cry face is pretty! I'm gonna take notes!" she captioned a photo of herself holding the distraught little princess.

The former stripper claimed she hadn't seen the post, but we ALL know that she follows the K clan's every move.

Things have been shockingly quiet between the video vixen and the sock designer lately, as they work out a custody agreement. Still, rumor has it Dream spends the majority of her time with her father and nannies, and that's probably for the best. Chy is too busy trying to stay famous, make money, and add notches to her bedpost!

Even her cry face is pretty! I'm gonna take notes!

Mindy Kaling Confirms She's Pregnant, Still Doesn't Disclose Who The Father Is

Posted on Tue Aug 15th, 2017 9:50am PDT       By X17 Staff


The secret is out... sort of.

Mindy Kaling confirmed she is indeed pregnant with her first child, in a preview clip of her Today interview this morning, but the actress still isn't revealing who the father is.

"It's exciting. It’s so unknown to me. I have a lot of control over a lot of aspects of my life, and this is one where I’m like, ‘OK, it’s out of my hands,’ which is kind of a fun feeling,” she told host Willie Geist.

When asked what kind of mother she thinks she will be, she used humor to highlight that she's looking forward to being included in mom shaming.

"It’s so easy to criticize parenting until you’re a parent, so one of the nice things about becoming a parent is that I’ll be able to openly criticize other parenting because I will have a child," she joked.

Ultimately, she's planning to model her parenting style after her late mom.

"My mom was incredibly fierce and so devoted to us, just loved us and really wanted us to be happy no matter what we did. My career choice was not something that she was familiar with and she was just so supportive of that. And if I could give that to my child, just that open-mindedness, I’d be so happy," she gushed.

We just want to know who her baby daddy is! We're hoping it's BJ Novak!

 

Taylor Swift Vows To Help Other Sexual Assault Victims After Winning DJ Groping Lawsuit

Posted on Tue Aug 15th, 2017 9:10am PDT       By X17 Staff


T-Swizz is taking a stand for women everywhere!

Taylor Swift won her case against DJ David Mueller, whom she accused of grabbing her bare butt during a meet-and-greet in 2013, and now she wants to make sure that other sexual assault victims have the resources to fight their assailants in court.

"I want to thank Judge William J. Martinez and the jury for their careful consideration, my attorneys Doug Baldridge, Danielle Foley, Jay Schaudies and Katie Wright for fighting for me and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault, and especially anyone who offered their support throughout this four-year ordeal and two-year long trial process,” she said in a statement after the verdict was read.

"I acknowledge the privilege that I benefit from in life, in society and in my ability to shoulder the enormous cost of defending myself in a trial like this. My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard. Therefore, I will be making donations in the near future to multiple organizations that help sexual assault victims defend themselves," she added.

The "Bad Blood" songstress won a symbolic $1, after Mueller sued her for $3 million in damages for destroying his radio career.

"He wants to make the victim pay the price, he is seeking 15 times what his contract with the radio station was worth in damages, and Ms. Swift is seeking $1 to show women you can say no,” her lawyer Doug Baldridge said in court.

Don't mess with Tay Tay!

 

EXCLUSIVE PIX & VIDEO - Kylie Jenner Accidentally Flashes Her Spanx!

Posted on Tue Aug 15th, 2017 8:10am PDT       By X17 Staff


And here we are thinking she never wears them!

Kylie Jenner wore a cute red minidress on a lunch date with her BFF Jordyn Woods yesterday, and when the wind kicked up, we got a peek at her Spanx! We guess even celebrities have cellulite, even though we never usually see it because they Photoshop it out of their selfies.

The LipKit mogul opened up her breakup, dating, and her new romance with Travis Scott on an upcoming episode of Life of Kylie, and it sounds like finding love in the spotlight isn't all it's cracked up to be.

"The hardest part about having a relationship for me is just that it's blasted all over the Internet. You have to hear about other people's opinions on who you're with. It's a lot. Most of the time it's just not true. Like you have no idea what I'm like in a relationship, what kind of bond I have with somebody else," she complained to dad Caitlyn Jenner.

"You cannot win with the Internet. There's no winning. It's just unnecessary negativity. I feel like I'm in a relationship with the world sometimes," she added.

It's also not easy having your fashion tricks exposed by bad weather!
