While George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis haven’t spoken about their sudden split yet, gossipmongers aren’t afraid to connect the dots. And the picture everyone’s drawing that confirmed bachelor Clooney probably didn’t like what Canalis’ ambitions to marry—someday. “I could never be with someone who every time he opens his mouth says he doesn’t want a child with me or to marry me,” she told an Italian magazine earlier this month, adding. “Who knows what will happen? I am a firm believer in marriage, in the future I will be married, but for the time being I am happy as I am.” Canalis dismissed any idea that Clooney would be anxious, saying “My boyfriend has not given an interview on his private life since 1999—everything that you read is just a rehash of stuff that has been written in the past,” but he actually confirmed his anti-marriage status to Piers Morgan last January (“I was married, so I gave it a shot”). Elisabetta must not have been watching.
As for the timing of the reveal, a source tells E! we should have seen this coming—since Clooney always drops his marriage-hungry lovers right before his annual friends-and-family trip to Lake Como in Italy. “He’s been trying to figure out how to get out of this for a while. Remember that ding-dong Sarah Larson George was dating? Same thing happened. Right before Como, they broke up. I’m telling you, it’s the same thing here.” The new “ding-dong” doesn’t seem to be too upset though, as Canalis and Dwyane Wade were reportedly “extra flirty” the DSquared2 show in Milan Tuesday. Clooney’s friends may claim the language barrier was an issue for him and the Italian model (“She was always shy…unsure of herself”), but an NBA star might be willing to ignore it…at least long enough for her to rebound.
Should we add Kim Kardashian to the growing list of high-profile sexters?
Bret Lockett thinks so. After Kardashian’s team denied the New England Patriots player’s claim that the celebs were involved in a five-month long relationship, Lockett finally admitted to CNN that he never actually met the reality star in person.
That’s not to say there was no relationship, however. The five months just consisted of phone conversations and exchanging sexy text messages, according to Lockett.
“I’ve said before that it was a physical relationship, but I say that meaning there was a physical aspect in the relationship,” he said. “She did tell me that she was touching herself in a physical way over the phone, towards me. So when I say physical, that’s what I mean.”
The alleged relationship took place while Kardashian was seeing NBA player Kris Humphries, who is now her fiancé. The Daily News reported the couple’s engagement last month.
InTouch Weekly broke the story in a recent article in which Lockett claimed that he and Kardashian were sexually involved.
If Lockett is lying, he went to great lengths to ensure he got his facts straight, even providing an alibi as to why he and Kardashian never met in person.
“It was during my football season,” he said. “She was opening her stores in Miami and New York. I know her book signing was being launched at the time, so we weren’t able to connect.”
Since Lockett first told InTouch Weekly about the relationship, Kardashian has been quick and stern about denying any contact with the football safety, even demanding the publication kill the story and threatening to sue Lockett for false claims.
“I do not plan on apologizing or retracting anything,” he said to CNN. “What I’ve said is the complete, honest truth and you can’t fault someone for telling the truth. That’s just plain and simple.”
Selena Gomez was hospitalized last night following her appearance on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’. TMZ reported that the ‘Witches of Waverly Place’ star complained of nausea and severe headaches, and was taken straight to hospital after the show. The source of the illness, however, is still a mystery – she is currently undergoing tests at a hospital in Los Angeles. The 18-year old actress seemed to be in good spirits as she discussed her new film ‘Monte Carlo’ with Leno. She also opened up about her boyfriend Justin Beiber, when Leno asked her “Has your mom met Justin Bieber?” Gomez said yes, adding, “He passed the test.”
According to USA Today, the couple had enjoyed a recent trip to Hawaii and were in attendance at the NBA finals in Dallas earlier this week. Gomez had also watched Bieber pick up awards at the recent Billboard Awards ceremony. Bieber made his concern for his girlfriend public by reposting the hashtag #getwellselena on Twitter. A spokesperson for Gomez confirmed: ‘Last night after Selena’s appearance on The Tonight Show she wasn’t feeling well and was taken to the hospital. She is currently undergoing routine tests.’ The stars new film ‘Monte Carlo’, a romantic adventure also starring Leighton Meester and Katie Cassidy, hits screens on 1st July.
This royal wedding business is getting out of hand, in our opinion, but if there’s one thing we’ve learned about Prince William and Kate Middleton, it’s that they seem like pretty fun, typical young people. (The Royals: Just Like Us!) First of all, perhaps you’ll remember when Prince Harry wanted Snoop Dogg to perform at his brother’s bachelor party. That kinda surprised us, but at the same time, if you can afford to have Snoop at your bachelor party, why not?
And now the word is that William and Kate want Jay-Z and Beyonce to perform “Crazy In Love” at the royal wedding reception. A source says “They really wanted to make their big day even more special and what better way than by getting pop royalty to perform at the party? … They both wanted to ditch traditions and make it more personal for them. Jay-Z and Beyoncé are both in Europe at the moment while she promotes her new single ‘Girls Who Run The World.’ So it’s highly likely they have taken up the Royals’ offer.” Among other celebs on the Royal wedding guest list are Guy Ritchie, Joss Stone, Elton John, and the Beckhams. Since the royal family has announced that they’ll be broadcasting the wedding on YouTube, maybe we’ll get a glimpse of the Beyonce performance if it really happens.
