BREAKING NEWS - Ariana Grande And Pete Davidson SPLIT!

Posted on Sun Oct 14th, 2018 7:11pm PDT       By X17 Staff

It was over before it began! Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson's fast romance -- and more importantly, their engagement -- is OVER!

The couple got engaged in June after dating for only a couple of weeks and now, after four months of being engaged, the pair have realized it all happened too fast. A source tells Us Weekly: "They realized it happened too quick and too early. The wedding is off, but they’re working things out. They’re not officially done yet."

Thing seemed to take a turn when Ariana's ex Mac Miller died of an overdose on Sept. 7. Grande pulled out of several performance commitments immediately thereafter -- including a gig on Saturday Night Live where Pete pulls a paycheck. Last month, Ariana's rep announced the singer was taking some time off: "Given the events of the past couple of years, Ariana is going to take some much needed time to heal and mend. She will be staying close to home and using this period to spend time with her loved ones and work on new music without deadline. She thanks her fans for their understanding."

Wonder if Ariana's giving back the $100K diamond engagement ring she got from Pete (or did she pay for it to begin with?)! And that new multi-million dollar penthouse is gonna get lonely! Poor Ariana!!!


Kanye Returns To Social Media To Talk About "Mind Control" And How People Saying He's Crazy Makes His Crazy

Posted on Sun Oct 14th, 2018 8:14am PDT       By X17 Staff

Okay at first I thought everyone calling Kanye crazy was a little weird -- he's just a rapper who's not super educated and is trying to sound smart when he talks to our also not-so-smart President Donald Trump and he just really cares about Chicago and the inner-city and "his people" and he's blinded by MAGA and doesn't realize he's talking to the wrong guy about his concerns ...

But now I'm starting to wonder if Kanye West isn't heading south a little bit. No, not just south like to Africa -- Uganda, to be specific -- but like mentally. He took to Twitter's Periscope yesterday from his luxury rental in the central African nation where he brought alone wife Kim Kardashian to work on finishing his new album. So in this ten-minute long video -- people call it a "rant," I think that's akin to calling left-wing protesters an "angry mob" -- Kanye talks about "mind control" and how Twitter removing some of his posts is like The Man trying to control your thoughts.

Ye says he talked to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey about removing "likes" from Tweets; he said, "When people try to influence you on social media and try to tell you what to do. Or when you post something positive on Instagram and it gets taken down because it's not part of a bigger agenda, that's like mind control. That's the echo chamber. That's trying to control you based on trying to incentivize you based on you getting enough likes and that's the poison that's happening with social media." He went on to tell viewers he has a 133 IQ, which he claims is "Mensa-level." He says when people try to tell him what to do, it's like people trying to "control his brain" and compares it to a woman having control over her own body, if someone tries to physically touch her, she decides what's allowed and what's not. He says: "We got people holding other people down; they want you all to be like mind control ... like Ayn Rand mind control."

He goes on to complain about Sony not selling back to him the rights to his music for $8 or 9 million. He said, "I got the money. I’m not gonna say the S word. I’m not Prince; I don’t need to write it on my face."

Some more gems ...
    "I will positive energy into the universe -- We will say what we feel, not what we're programmed to think. We will say what we feel; we will do what we feel. We will do what we feel. We will do what we feel. We will say what we feel. We will say. I did that as a mantra."

    "You all already saw [social media] is a lie. Social media told you Hillary's going to win and she didn't win. Social media told you that people didn't like me, but everybody loves me. Everybody loves Ye."

    "Un-program your minds, open up your heart, let the spirit guide you, let you conscious be free. We free; we free, bro." "The music is the best on the planet; I am the best living recording artist -- we, rather -- the spirit of Fela [Kuti], the spirit of [Bob] Marley, the spirit of [Tu]Pac [Shakur] flows through me."

    "We work from our heart and our spirit, we're not corny." "I got rid of my laptop. I have references there that I love, but I don't need those references -- the spirit will give me new references."

    "If I let human beings tell me what to do, then I can't be a vessel to you."

Dude is distraught. He and Bieber should get together for some therapy. Perhaps Kanye's bipolar and perhaps he's medicated (he is) ... but his doctors could probably do a better job of getting him evened out. Poor Kim's got a piece of work on her hands.


Justin Lets Off Some Steam By Skateboarding While Hailey Focuses On Her Fitness At Pilates

Posted on Sat Oct 13th, 2018 2:04pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Whew! Right when we were getting worried Justin Bieber was breaking down, he found an outlet to relieve his stress ... skateboarding!

The scruffy sk8er boi took to the streets of a residential neighborhood in West Hollywood where he was looking for a friend's house. Funny thing was, his Apple Map wasn't working or something because he had to enlist the help of the paparazzi and his security detail to found the house :) Watch ...

Meanwhile, Hailey Baldwin needed some time away from her man after all the drama following news his ex Selena Gomez was hospitalized for mental issues. We spotted Hailey at Pilates class, keeping her model-body in ship shape. But could the stress be getting to her, too? If your hubby was down in the dumps over his ex-girlfriend's mental health issues and maybe you were even thinking your marriage could have pushed the ex over-the-edge, would you not be feeling a bit funky? Poor Hailey! Tough way to start out a marriage ...


Ben Affleck Is Back On Daddy Duty!

Posted on Sat Oct 13th, 2018 1:32pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Ben's back on active duty with the kids! Affleck picked up daughter Seraphina and son Samuel from school on Friday -- which is a big deal because that means ex-wife Jennifer Garner has cleared him to be with the kids. It means she feels comfortable enough in Ben's sobriety that he can parent effectively and that he's fine being alone with the kids.

Jen has put a lot of demands on Ben following his recent stint in rehab -- requiring him to stay in out-patient treatment and even forcing him to dump his much-younger Playboy model girlfriend Shauna Sexton, 22, in order to help keep him on the straight and narrow.

Meanwhile, Jen's looking happy and healthy as reports claim the actress is dating someone new. She's not sitting around waiting for Ben to clean up his act -- she's DONE with him. We caught up with Garner after a parent session at the kids' school on Friday as she had an animated conversation with a friend ...

Justin Bieber Cries In The Car With Hailey Baldwin, Amid Reports He's "Overwhelmed With Emotion" Over Selena Gomez's Breakdown

Posted on Fri Oct 12th, 2018 8:45am PDT       By X17 Staff

It's pretty obvious he still cares about his ex.

Justin Bieber was visibly emotional and crying in the car with Hailey Baldwin, after news broke that his ex Selena Gomez was in treatment after suffering a mental breakdown. It looks like he's about to have a breakdown of his own!

The Biebs has reportedly been struggling with his own demons in recent months, and he's finding it difficult to navigate his fame.

"Justin has become a recluse and a changed person. He has no interest in being a celebrity and an artist. He has withdrawn again, much like he did a couple years ago. He started recording music, but just stopped," a source dished to Us Weekly.

"[Justin] has a lot of stuff going on his head. He’s not OK. He has so much going for him but he doesn’t feel whole," the source added.

Even though he ran off and got married, JB will always hold a soft spot for the "Come & Get It" songstress.

"Justin will always care about Selena. It’s hard for him to hear that she isn’t doing well. They have both had their separate struggles over the years and Justin was always very sympathetic to Selena’s. He wants the best for Selena. He wants her to be happy and healthy," an insider told People.

Something tells us we haven't seen the last of Jelena... we even asked Justin as he and Hailey went to lunch in the Valley, on Friday, if he's concerned about his ex ...

Scott Disick And Sofia Richie Hold Hands As They Attend Art Gallery Opening

Posted on Fri Oct 12th, 2018 8:15am PDT       By X17 Staff

Are we the only ones in disbelief that this has lasted this long?

Scott Disick and Sofia Richie attended the Maddox art gallery opening in West Hollywood last night, and the couple made it clear their relationship is stronger than ever by holding hands as they made their way inside.

According to reports, Lionel Richie's daughter recently suffered a pregnancy scare, and the father-of-three handled it surprisingly well.

"Sofia was totally not feeling well the other day and thought she might have been pregnant. She was nauseous all morning and feeling like something was horribly off with her body. Scott, who has been through it before with Kourtney, immediately thought Sofia might be carrying his baby and was surprisingly happy and excited," a source dished to Hollywood Life.

"But Sofia was more nervous, cautious and scared about what could be. She thought they had always been really careful when having sex. The upset tummy feelings passed after a day and Sofia soon learned she would not be a mom but instead probably ate something weird, which was a big relief for her but left Scott a little sad," the source added.

If LD gets the model pregnant, his ex Kourtney Kardashian is going to hit the roof!
