Report: Jen And Ben's Split Fueled By Actor's Growing Closeness To Ex Jennifer Lopez

There's a new Poor Jen in town!

Ben Affleck and wife Jennifer Garner announced they were splitting this week, and now we're learning that their marriage might have been weakened by the actor's closeness to his ex Jennifer Lopez!

According to The Sun, the Argo star and Jenny from the Block have been in constant contact since reconnecting at the Oscars this year, and his Mrs. was none too pleased about it! "Everyone is talking about J.Lo and Ben and saying it's inevitable they will get together again at some point. They were pretty flirty sat the Oscars and have stayed in touch via email. Jennifer Garner never liked it," a source told the outlet. J.Lo's man Casper Smart better watch out!

The Boy Next Door actress and the Boston hunk called off their engagement in 2003, but have publicly spoken fondly of one another since they parted ways, so it wouldn't be the least bit surprising if they gave it another go!

If Bennifer 2.0 happened, we would die of excitement!


Watch Rihanna's NSFW Video For "B*tch Better Have My Money"

Posted on Thu Jul 2nd, 2015 10:00am PDT       By X17 Staff

This is certainly the most provocative thing we've seen in a while!

Rihanna dropped her new music video for "B*tch Better Have My Money" at midnight, and there's not much to say about it, other than the fact it features tons of blood, torture, and nudity! The singer came up with the concept and directed it herself, and we can tell. It's just as edgy as Ri!

It shows the Barbadian beauty kidnapping her accountant's wife and subjecting her to all types of abuse, and we have a feeling she was inspired by real life events. If you recall, the chart topper's money man blew tons of her dough and she ended up filing a lawsuit against him in 2012.

In other news, the songstress just became the top selling digital artist of all time, so it looks like that b*tch has more than enough money!

Mariah Carey Sexes It Up In A Skimpy Sarong With Boyfriend James Packer

This coupling is still so weird to us!

Mariah Carey and new boyfriend James Packer hit the beach in Spain yesterday, and the legendary diva showed off her goods in a skimpy bathing suit and matching pink sarong. No wonder the Australian billionaire is smitten! His beach attire, on the other hand, is a little questionable!

The hot new couple have been inseparable since the singer joined the businessman on his yacht weeks ago, and they even took a trip to Jerusalem to meet with a "spiritual leader" before getting engaged. The duo brought along her twins Moroccan and Monroe, so things must be getting serious! Introducing your children to your man and talking marriage after only a couple weeks is what we call moving at lightning speed!

Although, would you expect anything less from Mimi?!

Yes - she has met her match.
Maybe - if he can handle her diva antics.


Chris Brown Files Documents To Establish Paternity Of Daughter Royalty

Posted on Thu Jul 2nd, 2015 8:40am PDT       By X17 Staff

Breezy wants it in writing!

Chris Brown has filed legal documents in Houston to establish his paternity of daughter Royalty, TMZ reports. The singer, who learned earlier this year that he fathered a child with fling Nia Guzman, wants to take his baby mama to court over child support and custody.

Currently, CB is shelling out $2,500 for his little girl, but Guzman is demanding a whopping $15k a month! Not only that, but the hip hop bad boy claims that Guzman is denying him the right to see his 12-month-old. The "Ayo" crooner has stepped up to the plate ever since he learned he's a dad, and it seems he's intent on proving he's not a deadbeat.

Little Royalty was the reason that the chart topper and girlfriend Karrueche Tran called it quits, but we have a feeling it's only a matter of time before they get back together. Miss Guzman was a former pal of Tran's, so that makes the situation even messier!

Did Paris Hilton Know She Was Being Pranked?

Posted on Thu Jul 2nd, 2015 8:10am PDT       By X17 Staff

Paris is burning! Or at least we suspect her ears are!

Earlier this week Paris Hilton became the talk of the town when a death-defying plane crash prank video began circulating the Interwebs. The vid shows Paris believing she is plummeting to her death while being a passenger on a plane -- and then it turned out it was all an elaborate ruse put on by an Egyptian prank show. GOTCHA!

Only instead of finding it funny, everyone everywhere felt sorry for the damsel in distress -- but TMZ is reporting that Paris knew about the prank before and got a pretty pay day to fake her fears. The site is claiming the celebutante got somewhere in the million dollar range!

TMZ says it has a contract from the Egyptian production company, which reads, “We will act as if something is going wrong and ask all passengers to jump off the plane!!! Of course everyone will panic, we'll be having skydivers in disguise with us on board. We will monitor the funny reactions from our celebrity guest when they fear jumping off the plane."

Yesterday, out photogs caught the blonde beauty, wearing a shirt with her face on it OF COURSE, as she headed into a salon in Beverly Hills. When we asked about her televised nose dive, she said it was "so scary."

Whatever happened -- we have to admit, Paris makes great TV!


Reelz Channel Scoops Up Miss USA Pageant After NBC Fires Donald Trump, Cuts Show

Posted on Thu Jul 2nd, 2015 7:40am PDT       By X17 Staff

Fret not, the Miss USA Pageant has been saved!

After NBC fired Donald Trump over his racist comments in June and cut the media mogul's Miss USA Pageant, the Reelz channel has picked up the beloved beauty pageant, the Associated Press reports.

Reelz tweeted the updated yesterday from its official twitter: “Exciting news for those who want to #SavetheSash! The #MissUSA pageant is coming to #REELZ.”

Reelz CEO Stan E. Hubbard told the Associated Press, “As one of only a few independent networks, we decided to exercise our own voice and committed ourselves to bringing this pageant to American viewers everywhere. He also noted that the beauty pageant contestants, "are an integral part of American tradition.”

The pageant is slated for Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Sunday, July 12.


Kanye West Proves He's Still One Smug Dude After Disappointing Glastonbury Performance

Posted on Thu Jul 2nd, 2015 6:56am PDT       By X17 Staff

Smug as a bug in a rug!

Looking like one smug superstar, Kanye West landed back home in Los Angeles after his trip to England, where he headlined at the Glastonbury Festival last weekend.

While Kanye West may think he's the best -- others had something to say about his disappointing performance at the festival. Super producer Mark Ronson did an interview with Radio 1 this week where he said Kanye had a bad night. "He really can put on some of the best shows, I don't know if that was one of them."

Ronson continued, "People that I spoke to that saw it on TV said it was great. People near where I was standing, and that is a lot of people wearing Kanye T-shirts, were just like 'We've seen better Kanye West shows'. That was kind of it."

Maybe Yeezy got distracted by the fan who was waving a large flag with an image of his wife from her sex with Ray Jay on it? We'd imagine that would throw anyone off -- even the great and powerful Kanye! Well judging by Kanye's demeanor -- you'd never know! For the international flight, the rapper wore a black shirt, gold chain, cargo pants and of course one fierce stare.

Meanwhile the expecting parents seem to be doing quite well in their second year of marriage. According to a new report, the over-the-top Kimye spent their first anniversary, which is May 24, in a low-key fashion -- low-key for them anyway! The duo hung out in thir $20 million Hidden Hills, Calif., mansion and watched Troop Beverly Hills together. Apparently Kanye hired a private bartender to serve them piña coladas in bed on the special occasion, reports Us Weekly. Definitely a far cry from last year's Italian/French wedding!


Report: Ben Affleck Is "Devastated" By Jennifer Garner Divorce, "Tried To Save The Marriage"

Posted on Wed Jul 1st, 2015 2:30pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Ben Affleck is reportedly broken up that his marriage to Jennifer Garner is over, but some are saying it's not dunzo for the reasons you think. Many outlets are reporting that the Thirteen Going on Thirty star is divorcing Batman because of his drinking and gambling, but TMZ claims that the split happened because of his demanding career, alleging that Jen felt "neglected."

We love that the outlet is painting Jen as the jealous wife -- how obvious! We, here at X17, have sources that have said the duo split because of his gambling, drinking and roving eye.

Three years ago, the couple nearly split and since have been attending regular couples therapy sessions, according to a source for Us Weekly. "They were going to divorce when Sam was born but you know how it is — baby comes and solves the issues for a bit but it's just a Band-Aid. It hasn't been working for ages," a source tells the mag.

Meanwhile publications are reporting that Ben is beside himself over the divorce.

"He's devastated. Nobody intends to go down this path," a source told People. "They both battled, and he really battled to try and save the marriage but ultimately it was the best thing for the kids and for him and Jen."

On Tuesday, Affleck, 42, and Garner, 43, said that they were calling it quits on their 10-year marriage. They have three children, Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3, together.
