1. Khloé Kardashian expecting another baby with Tristan Thompson via surrogate
Tristan Thompson is expecting a baby via a woman who's not Khloé Kardashian — this time, apparently, with her permission. Kardashian and Thompson are expecting another child together via a surrogate, despite breaking up over his latest cheating scandal. The two already share one child together, 4-year-old True. But in January, a paternity test confirmed Thompson had a baby with a woman from Houston, and the child was conceived while he and Kardashian were still together. "You don't deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you," Thompson told Kardashian at the time. Sounds like a guy you'd jump at the chance to have another kid with, right? Well, a source told People this latest child was conceived via surrogate "before it was revealed to Khloé and the public that Tristan was having a baby with someone else" — but they're "not back together" and "outside of co-parenting matters," they haven't even spoken since December. It's a true mess.
2. Armie Hammer reportedly selling timeshares because he's 'totally broke'
Armie Hammer is taking a bite out of the timeshare salesman life. The disgraced actor and alleged cannibalism fetishist is, in fact, working as a timeshare salesman in the Cayman Islands, despite reports last week claiming to debunk the rumor, Variety reports. A flyer went viral on social media last week that apparently revealed Hammer, whose career imploded over sexual abuse allegations, has a new gig as a hotel concierge in the Caymans, but reports later said this was just a prank. Actually, though, Variety now says he really is selling timeshares at the hotel. "He is working at a cubicle," a source told the outlet. "The reality is he's totally broke, and is trying to fill the days and earn money to support his family." Hammer, the great-grandson of an oil tycoon, is "not on the family payroll," the report adds. If you happen to stay at that hotel, you might want to exercise caution around the meat at the breakfast buffet just in case.

3. Constance Wu reveals she survived a suicide attempt amid social media backlash
Constance Wu has returned to social media to reveal how "I almost lost my life from it." Back in 2019, the actress sparked backlash after expressing displeasure that her show Fresh off the Boat was renewed, later explaining she was upset because this meant she'd have to drop out of another project. On Thursday, Wu ended a lengthy social media absence with a statement revealing that the "internet shaming" she received — including DMs "from a fellow Asian actress" telling her "I'd become a blight on the Asian American community" — was so severe that she attempted suicide. Luckily, Wu writes, "a friend found me and rushed me to the ER," and she says she spent the past several years focusing on her mental health and writing a book. "I've decided that I owe it to the me-of-3-years-ago to be brave and share my story," she said, "so that it might help someone with theirs."
4. Grimes and Chelsea Manning break up
Grimes' relationship with Chelsea Manning ended up lasting about as long as Elon Musk's interest in buying Twitter. The odd couple has broken up after about four months together, Page Six reports. The outlet revealed back in March that they were dating, just one day after the singer accidentally revealed a second child with Elon Musk in a Vanity Fair profile. "They're getting serious," a source told Page Six at the time. "They U-Hauled it." A source now tells Page Six they "had been breaking up for a while," whatever that means. We'll see whether or not this sticks, though. In that Vanity Fair piece, Grimes said Musk was her boyfriend, only for her to immediately clarify on Twitter that they've "broken up *again* since the writing of this article haha." Stay tuned to find out what bafflingly random person she may be linked to next.
5. Noah Schnapp privately apologizes to Doja Cat over DM kerfuffle
The strangest celebrity feud of the year can be put to rest, hopefully. Stranger Things star Noah Schnapp says he's apologized to Doja Cat after she put him on blast for sharing DMs without permission. The Will Byers actor last week posted a TikTok showing the rapper messaged him asking for help getting set up with his co-star Joseph Quinn, which he presumably thought she'd be cool with him posting considering she had already tweeted about him being "fine as s--t." But Doja Cat then totally flipped out, accusing Schnapp of "weasel s--t." Well, Schnapp now says "everything is all good" between them. "I apologized and I still follow her and love her music no hard feelings," the actor commented on TikTok. Doja Cat, for what it's worth, faced huge backlash for picking a fight with a 17-year-old kid as a full-grown woman, and according to Page Six, she's shed almost 200,000 Instagram followers amid the ordeal.
