When we photographed Ian Somerhalder at LAX on Thursday night, we figured he was rushing back from Comic-Con to be with new girlfriend Nikki Reed, and on Friday we caught the two trying to sneak off on a romantic vacation. Busted!
Ian was at Comic-Con in San Diego earlier this week to promote The Vampire Diaries
, and after having to sit next to ex-girlfriend/co-star Nina Dobrev and tape an acceptance speech for the mtvU Fandom Awards, we figured he wanted to get the heck out of there.
While Nina and Nikki weren't as close as say, Nina and golden girl Julianne Hough, they were friends, but apparently she's taking the high road! “Nina has gone on with her dating life just as much as Ian has, and they both made a decision not to ruin the show or their friendship with their feelings on outside relationships,” a source tells HollywoodLife
. “They are good, and they will be good if Ian and Nikki take it to the next level.”
“Ian and Nikki are still in the trial stage of their relationship and they haven’t shared with many that they are testing it out,” the source added. “They are definitely keeping others feelings close as they work on their decisions to start an exclusive relationship together. They don’t want to upset anyone. It is beyond baby steps right now between the two and Nina hasn’t been told anything.”
We'll see what happens!

Ahh, the honeymoon phase!
Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden stepped out in St. Tropez on Friday, and the hot new couple held hands as they boarded a yacht with several friends. The previous day the couple were seen sunning themselves in Cannes, and prior to that the lovebirds were in Sardinia, Italy. They're all over the place!
So will this last? If we're to believe a new report in Life & Style
, maybe! “Cameron has told close friends that she can really see herself settling down with Benji. She’s been boasting to pals that she’s never had sexual chemistry with anyone like she has with Benji
," a source told the mag. And she's not the only one! "Benji is so head over heels for her," the insider added. "He believes he’d be the luckiest guy in the world to wed Cameron.”
Wait, they're already talking a wedding?! They've only been dating for two months, so we can't really believe she'd pull a Kaley Cuoco on us ... but love is

Today Justin Bieber stopped by the Santa Monica Courthouse and met with the probation officer handling his vandalism case, and judging by the look on his face, this was clearly NOT how he wanted to spend his Friday afternoon!
Bieber was joined by attorney Shawn Holley (yup, she's repped Lindsay Lohan), and our photographers on the scene tell X17online that the 20-year-old pop star and his lawyer spent roughly an hour with the probation officer.
Bieber pled no contest to misdemeanor vandalism and was put on two years probation earlier this month for allegedly egging his neighbor's home, and he was also ordered to attend 12 anger management classes, complete 5 days of community service and pay $80,000 for the damage he caused.
The group discussed the terms of Bieber's probation, and we're guessing the subject of his partying came up. You know how he's been getting all sorts of flack for the loud parties he's been throwing at his new Beverly Hills pad? If he gets cited by the Beverly Hills Police Department, they will forward the matter to the Los Angeles County Probation Department, which could trigger a probation violation. Biebs better watch it!

Megan Fox is currently promoting Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
at Comic-Con in San Diego, and the 28-year-old actress worked it for the cameras in a sexy two-piece David Koma outfit that showcased her amazing post-baby body. Can you believe she's had two kids?! We certainly can't...
So how did Megan burn off the baby weight? "Let me tell you .... the first time I didn't do anything. I was just lucky and I was younger," she told E! News
. "The second time it wasn't coming off the same way and I've had to eliminate bread from my diet so I'm on that -- it's typical -- high protein very low carbohydrate very low sugar diet. It's kind of awful but it's what I'm doing."
Hey, she looks amazing!

Chris Martin talked to Valentine in the Morning
on 104.3 MY FM today for an interview airing Monday, and he shares a surprising amount of dirt on his personal life!
When asked what's going on with estranged wife Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris says:
"The truth is... Well, I don't really love talking about this stuff. But the thing we told everyone at the beginning of the year is true. We are very close, we are not together. But, we're... you know... that's the truth... and uh that's it. You know, there's a lot of love. So there's nothing... No scandal I'm afraid. I wish I could give you scandal."
Chris then chatted about the couple's kids, Apple and Moses, and revealed that they're huge Ariana Grande fans! Apparently Moses and Apple both love singing along to her song "Problem" but Chris jokes that "it's too difficult" for him to sing. The Coldplay frontman added that he's not sure if his kids are fans of his band. Maybe in time?
And what does the future hold for Gwyn and Chris? They may not be together now, but is this really the end for the couple? "It’s true they had problems but in the weirdest way this ‘conscious uncoupling’ situation has relieved the pressure on them," a source told the UK's Sunday People
last month. "Gwyneth had ground rules about not immediately dating, respecting each other, keeping things happy for their two children and communicating throughout but it seems to have acted as a wake-up call. Chris still lives with her, they are amazingly lovey-dovey together and she still wears her wedding ring. They may have consciously uncoupled a few months ago – but they seem to be recoupling now. No one will be surprised if they get back together.”

What a fete!
Jennifer Lopez celebrated her 45th birthday with a star-studded bash at Hamptons hotspot Nammos last night, and it looks like it was blast!
Jenny from the Block was joined by more than 100 guests, including rumored beau Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Khloe Kardashian and boyfriend French Montana. Other invitees included Russell Simmons, Leah Remini, Andy Cohen, Kelly Ripa, Kristin Chenoweth, Rachel Zoe, Brian Atwood, and longtime manager Benny Medina.
"Jennifer was dancing with Leah Remini for a while and smiling and greeting everybody," a source dished to Us Weekly
The singer was surprised with a massive cake that had a woman who resembled J.Lo sitting on a lion! The party carried on into the wee hours of the morning and didn't wrap up until after 4AM.
She just gets better with age!

We doubt he was ever offered the part in the first place but ok!
LeAnn Rimes burst into tears when husband Eddie Cibrian revealed he turned down an acting role to stay close to his wife and family, and the whole thing was captured on camera for their failing reality show.
The TV actor was offered a part in Dallas, which shoots in the Lone Star state and would require him to relocate for seven months, so he opted to pass on the opportunity.
"I have made my decision. I am going to pass," he told LeAnn after she returned from a night out with pals, to which she responds, "Really, are you okay with that? The last thing I want is for you to be resentful of the situation."
"I am totally okay with it. Even if they could have worked it out it would have still been very difficult. There is no way that I could do it,' the father-of-two insists. "I know you need to feel fulfilled, you love what you do and it breaks my heart to see that you have to compromise as much as you do to be honest," the country singer worried.
"I'm at peace with it, you know family is more important to me. Another job will come around that is better and that is here,' Eddie assured her.
He deserves an Academy award for this performance, because we all know he'd probably be fine leaving LeAnn and the drama at home!

Music's "It" girl Iggy Azalea is already the siren of the summer -- but now she's adding a new title to her roster -- host of the rebooted House of Style
"The biggest impact that House of Style had on pop culture is its ability to make fashion fun and interesting to fans who are both diehard fashionistas or not at all," the 24-year-old Aussie said in a statement.
"I am so excited to bring back this iconic show for another generation of teenagers," she added.
According to MTV News, fashion designer Jeremy Scott and Rita Ora will both make appearances on the show.
The OG House of Style
ran on MTV from 1989 to 2000. The iconic show featured hosts Cindy Crawford, Rebecca Romijn and Molly Sims.
Last year, the show was also briefly resurrected online with Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss as hosts.
Miss Iggy promises that the show will be, "wild, crazy, fun, and fascinating all at the same time."
Starting on Aug. 4, the "Fancy" girl will be starring in a series of Web-only shows in which she visits vintage clothing stores and talks about the connection between music and fashion.
