Yep, Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian are dating
Okay, so we're doing this: Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson are officially dating, Page Six reports. The confirmation comes less than a month after the two were spotted holding hands on a rollercoaster, which a source at the time insisted to People was "just friends hanging out." But now, Kardashian and Davidson have reportedly been on several dates, and they were recently spotted together celebrating Davidson's birthday with Flavor Flav. "She is telling some people they aren't super serious but she isn't seeing anyone else," a source told E! News. "She's trying to not make a big deal about it but is super into him." The source added Kardashian is "smitten over him and it's very exciting to her." Kardashian hosted Saturday Night Live just last month, sharing a kiss with Davidson during an Aladdin magic carpet sketch — and now, they've both entered a whole new world.
Scarlett Johansson is working on another Marvel project after suing Disney
No hard feelings? Scarlett Johansson is currently working on a "top secret" Marvel project, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed Thursday night. Feige didn't provide further information about the project but clarified it's unrelated to her character of Black Widow, and she'll be involved as a producer. This comes months after Johansson filed an explosive lawsuit against Disney, alleging the company breached her contract with the streaming release of the solo Marvel flick Black Widow. At the time, some speculated this meant her relationship with Marvel was officially over — even more so than after her character was killed off. Instead, Johansson told The Hollywood Reporter she's "excited that I get to continue my work with Disney and with my Marvel family." You know what they say: you always sue the ones you love.
Adele talks to her son about divorce on her new album
Adele's highly-anticipated new album 30 is here, and it doesn't take long for it to get a bit intense. The album's third track, "My Little Love," includes voice notes Adele recorded of herself talking about her divorce with her 9-year-old son. "I love your dad 'cause he gave you to me," she says in one of the notes. The song also features an emotional voicemail Adele left a friend, in which she tearfully says she feels "really lonely" and "a bit frightened." The singer explained to Vogue she recorded the notes at the suggestion of her therapist and included them on the album because "I thought it might be a nice touch, seeing as everyone's been at my door for the last 10 years, as a fan, to be like, 'Would you like to come in?'"
Documentary to examine ‘breakdown’ of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s relationship
A new documentary heading to Discovery+ is set to tell the "story of the breakdown" of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's relationship, explaining how it "tipped into the celebrity court case of the decade." Johnny vs Amber will be a two-episode documentary examining both sides of the case, with Depp's side making the argument "that he found himself married to a Machiavellian liar who would stop at nothing to protect her image," while Heard's side will explore her marriage to an alleged "drug-fueled monster." Heard has accused Depp of abuse, and the Pirates of the Caribbean star last year lost a libel case against a British tabloid that called him a "wife beater." Johnny vs Amber will reportedly debut this fall, though with Depp's defamation lawsuit against Heard heading to trial next year, a follow-up may be warranted.
Is Ariana Grande on track for her 1st Oscar nomination?
Will Ariana Grande say "thank u, next" to the Academy next year? The first reactions to Adam McKay's new movie Don't Look Up are in, and critics are liking Ariana Grande's chances at scoring an Oscar nomination. The satire stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence as astronomers desperately trying to convince the world a comet is headed toward Earth, and Grande has a small role as a fictional pop star. Naturally, she gets to perform an original song, which critics are calling "f---ing hilarious," and Variety says it "feels almost certain" she'll get her first Oscar nomination for Best Original Song. If so, she could be up against not only Billie Eilish but also Beyoncé, with other contenders potentially including Jay-Z, Bono, and Jennifer Hudson. With competition like that, it really would be an honor just to be nominated.
