Minka Kelly Celebrates Birthday With Newly Single Sean Penn

Is this the reason he and Charlize called it quits on their engagement?!

Minka Kelly celebrated her 35th birthday with a lavish dinner in Napa Valley, and normally we wouldn't care, except for the fact that newly single Sean Penn was one of the three guests at the table, TMZ reports! The Hollywood bad boy split from fiancee Charlize Theron last month, and it looks like he might be moving on rather quickly with Chris Evans' ex.

The actor was allegedly overheard telling people that he met the brunette beauty at a Haiti charity event, which makes it sound like they are definitely dating. Not only that, but the Oscar winner picked up the tab for the whole group!

We have a feeling his South African former sweetie will NOT be happy when she catches wind of this!


Kim Kardashian Sparks Outrage Over Talk At Renowned Educational Organization

Posted on Tue Jun 30th, 2015 9:00am PDT       By X17 Staff

Kim Kardashian may be the most famous person in the world -- but that doesn't mean she doesn't have her fair share of haters. Kimmy K can now add the members of the Commonwealth Club of California to her list of detractors.

The 34-year-old has sparked outrage over a book signing and talk, hosted by the Commonwealth Club of California, an educational institution founded in 1903 that has hosted slew of renowned speakers including Martin Luther King Jr., Ronald Reagan and FDR. Needless to say, some people are up in arms that Kim K. is not of the same caliber of past speakers.

The 110-year-old institution founded a sector of the club in 2002, called Inforum, to appeal to younger audiences -- and Kimbo is being in brought in by that faction. Tonight, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is slated to participate in a 45-minute conversation with LaDoris Cordell, a retired state judge, reports the Associated Press.

The decision to bring Kanye West's wife has caused great upheaval on Inforum's social media page. A rep for Inforum responded to the comments by thanking all who expressed opinions: "We hear ya! Commonwealth Club and INFORUM guests should strike a nerve from time to time. Agree with her or disagree with her, we’re looking forward to a spirited conversation and a different perspective. We expect to have a fun, insightful conversation with Kim and invite you to join us."

Looks like the Commonwealth Club is basically saying -- deal with it y'all!

Kimbo should be used to causing quite a stir. After arriving in Los Angeles from London yesterday, the reality star caused a serious sensation with the photogs at LAX. One pap even fell to the ground in the hubbub and Kim had to dodge him. The pap almost took her down! We have a feeling that the members of the Commonwealth Club of California wouldn't have minded that!

EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS - Kylie Jenner Finally Moves In To Her $2.7 Million Mansion!

Posted on Tue Jun 30th, 2015 8:15am PDT       By X17 Staff

She may be just 17 years old, but Kylie Jenner is finally moving in to her own $2.7 million mansion!

The reality TV star posted a selfie with sister Khloe Kardashian inside her new home and wrote "don't you wish your move in crew looked like mine," and X17 photographers spotted a number of moving trucks outside of the residence on Monday afternoon. While the pool is still a pile of rubble and there's clearly a lot of remodeling work to be done, it looks like Kylie just couldn't wait to get in to her posh new pad!

Khloe Instagrammed a pic as well and added, "We're finally neighbors!!!! Moving day!!!!" and she also posted the pic below and wrote, "A Michael sandwich," referencing Kylie's boyfriend Tyga, whose real name is Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson. Does this mean that Khloe approves of the 25-year-old rapper dating underage Kylie? It certainly seems that way!

While most kids her age are getting ready to move out of their parents' home and into a college dorm, Kylie has been counting on her family to help her decorate the 4,851-square-foot crib. "My mom is so amazing at this, if I didn't have her I would not have as beautiful of a house," Kylie told E! News. "She's made it very easy. I got most of my furniture from my sisters and my mom. And before I bought anything, they just gave me a bunch of stuff they had in storage and a bunch of old stuff so most of my house is all them."


Katy Perry Beats Out Taylor Swift As Forbes' Highest-Paid Female Celeb

Posted on Tue Jun 30th, 2015 7:39am PDT       By X17 Staff

Katy Perry covers the new issue of Forbes magazine, and though she holds the number three spot on the publication's Highest-Paid Celebrities Of 2015 list, she's the top-earning female. Congrats!

"Don't think that I didn't celebrate this moment by going straight to Taco Bell and getting my crunch wrap supreme," Katy wrote on Instagram after learning the news. But on a more serious note, she added:
    "Before accepting the offer to be on the cover of Forbes, I was told that a lot of women have previously shied away from doing it. I wondered if it was because they thought socially it would look like they were flaunting or bragging or it wasn't a humble decision. Ladies, there is a difference between being humble and working hard to see the fruits of your labor blossom, and your dreams realized. Hopefully this cover can be an inspiration to women out there that it's okay to be proud of hard earned success and that there is no shame in being a boss."

Perry earned a whopping $135 million in the last 12 months, and she beat out rival Taylor Swift, along with other superstars like Lady Gaga and Beyonce. Taylor snagged the number nine spot with $80 million, but Bey and Gaga didn't even make the top ten list!

So who topped Katy? It was boxers Floyd Mayweather ($300 million in earnings in the last 12 months) and Manny Pacquiao ($160 million in earnings)! After Katy, the boys of One Direction nabbed the number four spot with $130 million over the last twelve months, followed by Howard Stern ($95 million), Garth Brooks ($90 million), author James Patterson ($89 million), Robert Downey Jr. ($80 million) and soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo ($79.5 million).

Britney Spears Takes A Major Swipe At Iggy Azalea After "Pretty Girls" Diss

Posted on Tue Jun 30th, 2015 6:59am PDT       By X17 Staff

Pretty girls? More like mean girls!

After Iggy Azalea backhandedly slammed her "Pretty Girls" track with Britney Spears, the pop princess took to her Twitter to let Iggy know who's boss.

A fan recently tweeted at Iggy and asked why the duet wasn't doing as well as everyone predicted, to which Iggy replied, "its difficult to send a song up the charts without additional promo and tv performances etc. unfortunately I'm just featured.... would have enjoyed performing it alot, i think it got off to a powerful start. but you need content to compete in 2015."

After a number of commenters blew up Iggy's feed, she continued:
    "my comment is factual, it applies to any song. I dont have to suck the womans a**hole 24/7 to be her friend, do i? bye girls. Genuine friends have genuine opinions. Its possible & healthy to have a differing thought without it being bitchy or shade. i really love the song, and actually never said anything negative, only that i think there was room to do more with it. its really not something you should feel mad or aggressive about. i love the song and i think Britney is great. why be angry?"

Well, it seems like Britney was a bit angry! The pop superstar tweeted, "Can't wait to get back to Vegas. So thankful I have shows for the rest of the year to look forward to ... #YouWantAPieceOfMe." "Piece of Me" IS a famous Britney tune, but let's keep in mind that Iggy's Great Escape tour was cancelled earlier this year, so this is clearly a big jab at the Aussie starlet.

It's Britney, b*tch!

Selena Gomez Just Can't Kiss Junk Food Goodbye!

Posted on Mon Jun 29th, 2015 1:00pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Some starlets don't like being photographed eating -- but Selena Gomez has no problem posting pictures of herself chowing down!

Yesterday the 21-year-old starlet took a selfie while munching on a bag of Cheetos, and today she posted a shot of herself going to town on an ice cream cone. We love a sweet treat every now and then, but hopefully Justin Bieber's former flame is eating veggies and protein too! After all, when Selena was hospitalized a few years ago, she partly blamed the incident on her unhealthy diet!

Back in June of 2011, she told Texas DJ Kidd Kraddick that malnutrition was one of the reasons for her collapse after her appearance on The Tonight Show. "I do eat. The problem is I don't eat right," she said. "I love everything that's possibly not good for me." Selena added that her mom tries to keep her on the right track. "She's definitely shoving vitamins down my mouth and following me around," she said. "But at the same time, I was a stubborn kid, so I got to eat whatever I wanted. I have to have creamed spinach or cheese on my broccoli. I have to have something that makes it not healthy ... I love M&Ms, Kit Kats, Snickers and Goobers at the movies."

But hey, when you look this good and hike in the heat of summer, it's OK to have a cheat day every now and then, right? Check out the gallery below to see photos of the starlet flashing her abs during a workout over the weekend!
