Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez Regularly Split

Selena Gomez and Justin BieberJustin Bieber and Selena Gomez have reportedly broken up multiple times in the last few months.

Apparently the pop stars most recently decided to end their relationship last week, but have since rekindled and are giving their relationship another try. A source told website TMZ.com that 18-year-old Justin and 19-year-old Selena's current situation is tenuous and stated that they are not a "solid" couple.

The two have been dating for around a year and a half and while Disney actress Selena has maintained her squeaky clean image, Justin has been faced with some controversy recently.

Recent reports claimed that Justin may have to face jail if convicted on criminal charges for an altercation with a photographer. Justin recently said he thinks he could take One Direction in a fight. Although the "Boyfriend" hitmaker knows he couldn't beat the boy band if they all attacked him as a group, he is confident he could hold his own individually against Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne. "I'd get my ass kicked (against all of them). But one-on-one I'd take them. I'd try a spin-kick. To the face," he is quoted as saying.

7-inch iPad coming in October

A smaller iPad has been rumored to be arriving for over a year now, aimed to compete with 7-inch tablets like the Kindle Fire. Now, on the heels of the announcement of the Nexus 7 and Surface tablets, both Bloomberg and The Wall Street Journal are reporting that sources are indicating that Apple is set to start production on a 7.8-inch iPad with the goal of launching it this October. Unlike the 2012 iPad model, this smaller slate won't be sporting a Retina display as Apple will instead opt for a 1024 x 768 panel to keep costs down. We know, it's another iPad rumor. The difference here, though, is that when you see major outlets like WSJ and Bloomberg reporting it, it's with great confidence. October should also see the debut of the next-generation iPhone as well.

Katie Holmes and her daughter Suri CruiseKatie Holmes filed for divorce in order to save her daughter from undergoing Scientology auditing.

The 33-year-old actress ended her marriage to Tom Cruise - who is a high-profile member of the quasi-religious cult - last week and sources close to the star have revealed she was worried their six-year-old daughter would be subjected to a process known as "sec checking," according to TMZ.com.

During these tests, the subject holds electrode handles on a device called an electropsychometer or E-Meter and is then asked a series of personal questions that help the church locate "areas of spiritual distress," but according to ex-members it is designed to help kids spy on their parents. While the person is being asked the questions, a church auditor collects E-meter readings from the device, which has been compared to a polygraph machine.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Drama, Reality, Bravo, Gossip, Rumors,

Paris HiltonParis Hilton had to turn down a guest role in the finale of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

The hotel heiress was asked by producers of the hit reality TV show to appear alongside her aunts, Kyle and Kim Richards, but she was forced to decline because she is out of the country on business.

"Paris was asked to be a part of the finale which will take place in mid-July. She is a big fan of the show and totally supports her family appearing on it, but had to decline because she will be out of the country. Paris will be extremely busy promoting her new album, and just has too much going on right now to commit to taking on anymore projects," a source said.

Kyle and Kim were also disappointed Paris couldn't take part as they know she would have been a hit. "Producers were hopeful Paris would be able to be a part of the finale, which they could have promoted and publicised. Paris definitely would have greatly bolstered the ratings for the finale, but, her schedule just couldn't accommodate it. Paris' aunts, Kim and Kyle also wanted her to be on the show, but they completely understand," the source added.
