Kylie Jenner pregnant

Kylie Jenner is preparing to become a mother at the age of 20, according to multiple reports.

Sources tell TMZ.com Kim Kardashian's little sister is expecting her first child with rapper Travis Scott, who she began dating in April, shortly after calling it quits with her on/off boyfriend Tyga.

Reality TV star-turned-makeup mogul Kylie is due in February, according to People.com.

"They started telling friends a few weeks ago," says a source close to the couple. "The family has known for quite some time. She is really excited and so is Travis!"

Another insider adds, "It is an unexpected but completely amazing turn of events that she could not be more excited or thrilled about. Everyone is overjoyed for her. This is the happiest she's ever been."

Representatives for Kylie and Travis, 25, have yet to comment on the claims.

The baby news may come as a surprise to fans, but some have since noticed Kylie, who is famous for sharing selfie after selfie online, has been sharing old photos of herself on social media of late, and is often now only pictured from the chest up or wearing baggy clothing.

If the pregnancy news is true, Kylie and Travis' kid won't be the only new addition to the Kardashian-Jenner clan - Kim and her husband Kanye West are reportedly expecting their third child through a surrogate mother. Their baby is said to be a girl, a little sister for four-year-old daughter North and their son Saint, who turns two in December.

Gary Oldman marries

Actor Gary Oldman has reportedly become a husband for the fifth time after marrying art curator Gisele Schmidt.

The Dark Knight star quietly married just before making an appearance at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month, according to PageSix.

The newlyweds even managed to hit the red carpet together at the industry event without calling attention to their fresh union, with the unassuming couple having smiled for cameras during the premiere of his new film Darkest Hour on 12 September.

Gary exchanged vows with Gisele in an intimate ceremony at his manager Doug Urbanski's Los Angeles home ahead of their departure for TIFF.

The veteran leading man began dating the writer while he was separated from fourth wife Alexandra Edenborough, who he was married to for seven years before divorcing in 2015. Art curator Gisele has been credited with helping her new husband with art projects in the past, linking avid photographer Gary with artist Ian Ruhter for a large-scale collaboration.

Gary, 59, was also married for two years to British actress Lesley Manville, who he shares son Alfie with, until their split in 1989. His marriage to American leading lady Uma Thurman was short-lived too " the two-year union ended in divorce in 1992. The father-of-three shares two children with his third wife Donya Fiorentino, a model-and-photographer who wed filmmaker David Fincher before tying the knot with Oldman in 1997. His relationship with Donya terminated in 2001 after a tense custody battle, with a judge deciding to grant Oldman with sole legal and physical custody of their sons.

All eyes on Harry's girl

The appearance of Prince Harry's girlfriend over the weekend at the opening ceremonies of the Invictus Games in Toronto continues to be scrutinized by royal watchers, who have commented on everything from how far they sat from each other to where the American actress purchased her outfit.

"This is just part of the fabric of modern-day living for the Royal Family," says Damian Radcliffe, a British media researcher who teaches journalism at the University of Oregon.

"There's always been a huge amount of column inches about nothing much in particular. It's just that now we have a great proliferation of media outlets willing to talk about that, which is why there's so much coverage of this on both sides of the Atlantic."

Meghan Markle, who films the hit legal drama "Suits" in Toronto, cheered on the athletes from around the world Saturday while Harry, who founded the Games in 2014, sat a few rows away next to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.S. first lady Melania Trump.

By Sunday morning, tabloids such as the Daily Mail were reporting how different Markle's burgundy dress and leather jacket was from the demure outfit Kate Middleton — now the Duchess of Cambridge — wore at her first public outing with Harry's brother and second in line to the throne, Prince William.

Since this year's Invictus Games are taking place where Markle lives and shoots "Suits," there has been intense speculation about if and when the couple will make a public appearance together. They have publicly acknowledged their relationship but have not been seen together, except for long-lens photos taken without their knowledge and from a great distance.

"Everyone is expecting Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to appear together at some point this week," says Chris Ship, Royal Editor for ITV News in the U.K. "The common-held view among the British royal press is that there will be an official outing, their first outing as a couple, as it were."



Jason Derulo's home burgled

Jason Derulo's Los Angeles house has been burgled.

According to editors at TMZ, a member of the singer's team, who have been looking after the property while the Swalla star has been away, noticed something wasn't quite right when they entered his home on Friday afternoon.

After realizing that someone had broken into the house and removed items belonging to the 28-year-old singer, the police were alerted and launched a full investigation after visiting the scene of the crime.

It is reportedly unknown how the burglars got into the house or what was actually taken. Officers are said to be waiting for Jason to return so he can identify which of his belongings have gone missing.

Jason has made no mention of the incident on his social media, but confirmed he would be back in Los Angeles on Sunday night to celebrate his birthday at The Argyle in Hollywood.

This is the latest in a string of burglaries on celebrities' Los Angeles houses in recent months.

In July, Hilary Duff's Beverly Hills apartment was burgled when she was on holiday in Canada with her son Luca. Reports at the time suggested her social media posts, which included several pictures of her enjoying her holiday, may have tipped the criminals off about her empty pad.

Comedian David Spade had $80,000 in valuables taken after thieves hauled away the safe from his Beverly Hills home in June, while other recent targets have included Creed star Michael B. Jordan, newlywed Shameless star Emmy Rossum, actress Jaime Pressly, as well as singers Demi Lovato, Alanis Morissette, Drake, Nicki Minaj and reality stars Scott Disick and Kendall Jenner.



Kevin Hart thanks fans

Kevin Hart is thanking fans for their support amid his sex tape and extortion drama.

The 38-year-old Ride Along actor was allegedly asked to pay a seven-figure sum to avoid a sex tape being leaked, with the footage allegedly showing the comedian in a compromising situation with a woman other than his pregnant wife Eniko Parrish.

Last week, the Ride Along actor took to Instagram to openly apologize to his wife for his "recent behavior" and also alluded to the incident during a short video.

"I'm at a place in my life where I feel like I have a target on my back. I should make smart decisions and recently I didn't," he stated. "I made a bad error in judgment and put myself in an environment where only bad things can happen and they did.

"And doing that I know that I am going to hurt the people closest to, whom I have talked to - my wife and my kids."

Now the actor is opening up further about the drama, insisting he will emerge a "better man" from it.

"We got a lot of s**t to talk about, people...," he said at a comedy show in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday. "Before I go I want to tell y'all something and this is as real as it gets. The words of appreciation do no justice for what I feel for you guys... Let me tell you why I say that. I'm going through some s**t, I'm going through drama. And the best that you have when you're going through drama is a support group that chooses to ride with you."

"I say thank you from the bottom of my heart because I want you guys to understand that I'm not perfect...," he continued in the audio tape obtained by TMZ. "But I understand that things happen when they are supposed to, things happen for a reason and in this particular case guys I promise you I'm going to come out a better man, a better father, and a better husband."



J-Lo gives $1 million

Jennifer Lopez has donated $1 million to the victims of the devastating hurricane in Puerto Rico.

The 48-year-old's family hails from the Caribbean island and she has been urging her fans to donate to Hurricane Maria relief efforts after the storm decimated Puerto Rico earlier this week. On Sunday, the Shades of Blue star attended a press conference with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and announced the large donation.

"Alex Rodriguez and I, who are both New Yorkers, are using all our resources and relationships in entertainment, sports and business to garner support for Puerto Rico and the Caribbean," Lopez said in Spanish, then in English.

Jennifer also revealed bosses from the New York Yankees, who her boyfriend Alex used to play baseball for, and the Major League Baseball organization have pledged their support. Lopez is also working with her ex-husband Marc Anthony to help mobilize more than 30 athletes and artists to provide aid to the Caribbean area and Mexico, where a deadly earthquake hit Mexico City this week.

"We are working day and night to identify the needs," she added.

On Friday, Lopez took to Instagram revealing she has not heard from her relatives who live on the island.

"What's on my mind is what's going on in Puerto Rico," she said in a video posted on the social media site. "The devastation is beyond belief. Me and my cousin still haven't been able to hear from our families over there."

At the press conference in New York, she revealed she still has not had any contact with them.

Hurricane Maria has killed over 20 people in Puerto Rico to date, and followed in the footsteps of Hurricane Irma, which also caused devastation when it swept through the island en route to Florida.



Legends make hall of fame

Legendary artists Neil Young and Bruce Cockburn were ushered into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame on Saturday with a celebration that carried a few political undertones.

While the live concert and induction ceremony at Toronto's Massey Hall mostly steered away from any overt social statements, it seemed almost impossible for two of protest music's most influential Canadian songwriters to ignore the current state of global politics.

"I'm terribly proud to be Canadian," Young told the crowd as he was inducted. "I know I've travelled a lot ... but I've always been a Canadian citizen."

"I love the U.S.A. — by the way," he added before leaning into Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" campaign slogan.

"My message is: They're already great."

That's about as close as the 71-year-old singer got to his political side.

But a tribute performance of his song "Ohio" by rock band Whitehorse inched a little closer. Originally written about the 1970 Kent State shootings, Whitehorse played their cover in front of a projection screen with the names of young men killed by police, including Freddie Gray, Eric Garner, Walter Scott and Canadian Greg Matters.

"We'd like to say so much has changed, but we're not sure if it has," guitarist Luke Doucet said as he introduced the song.

A performance of Cockburn's "If I Had a Rocket Launcher" by Blackie and the Rodeo Kings added another notch to the political tone of the event.

It was followed by Buffy Sainte-Marie who offered her perspective on the songwriter's career as she introduced him onto the stage.

"Bruce is an agitator, an activist, a protester," she said.

He writes "words that move the needle of public opinion" and that "shine the light on injustices," Sainte-Marie added.

But Cockburn left audiences to read between the lines as he thanked his long-time manager Bernie Finkelstein.

"In a world increasingly defined by its fakery, we together have pulled off the greatest trick ever — we spread truth," the 72-year-old said to Finkelstein.

The remarks were some of the most poignant moments in a ceremony that was otherwise spent celebrating the good times.

It marks the first hall of fame induction in five years, after the organization was acquired by the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada (SOCAN), which began rebuilding its operations. Previous songwriters who received the honour include Leonard Cohen, Robbie Robertson, Joni Mitchell and Gilles Vigneault.

Among the other highlights of the night were singer k.d. lang who brought down the house with a heart-wrenching take on Young's "Helpless," which earned her a standing ovation.

Rock star Randy Bachman pulled up a stool to deliver an extended storytelling session on his memories of fellow Winnipegger Young, including when he learned the "Harvest Moon" singer's mother was calling a local radio station to boast about his live shows.

Bachman said the enthusiasm of Young's mother encouraged him to urge his own mom to show more support over the airwaves.

Quebecois inductees for the evening were Beau Dommage, a group formed in the early 1970s that became known for writing popular French folk staples, such as "La Complainte du Phoque en Alaska."

Rounding out the honourees was Stephane Venne whose songwriting career was launched when he penned "Hey Friend, Say Friend," which won an international theme song contest for Expo '67.

The success convinced him to abandon a floundering singing career and focus on writing. He went on to pen more than 400 songs for musicians including Isabelle Pierre and Renee Claude.

As he received his induction into the hall of fame, Venne offered some advice to young songwriters who feel pressured to be stage performers.

"If you have no voice, no charisma, no nothing, except this (songwriting talent), you can have fun. You can make a living," he said.

"You can leave a mark."

Kelowna going Cuckoo

Kelowna’s award-winning Fred Skeleton Theatre Company presents a ribald, unrestrained take on the classic story about a mental hospital and its motley group of inhabitants.

Ken Kesey’s 1960 novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, left an indelible mark on literature, theatre and film — and its themes of individuality, free will, and rebellion against conformity are just as powerful today as they were in the ‘60s, when Dale Wasserman's stage adaptation hit Broadway with actors such as Kirk Douglas and Gene Wilder.

Cuckoo’s Nest — a powerful exploration of the beauty and danger of being an original — taps into the very heart of storytelling, and it draws bold and brave performers. Fred Skeleton’s stage production, directed by Rob Mason-Brown, stars the likes of Casey Easton (Randle P. McMurphy), Michelle Hussey (Nurse Ratched), Vance Potter (Dr. Spivey), Pete MacLeod (Billy Bibbit), and many more local talents.

It is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

WHAT: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
WHEN: October 12-14 & Oct. 19-21, 2017
WHERE: Mary Irwin Theatre, Rotary Centre for the Arts
TICKETS: $25, Students $15, at the RCA Box Office



LaBeouf claims 'free speech'

Shia LaBeouf's lawyer has claimed that the actor's rant against a bartender for refusing to serve him alcohol was "protected free speech".

The Transformers star was kicked out of Los Angeles-area bowling alley Pinz on 5 April, after a heated argument with server David Bernstein at Jerry's Famous Deli, which is located within the venue.

Video posted online showed LaBeouf yelling at Bernstein over his apparent refusal to serve him, with the 31-year-old calling him a "f**king racist".

Bernstein then sued LaBeouf for assault and defamation, seeking $5 million in damages.

However, LaBeouf is hoping that the suit may be thrown out by a Californian court, after his lawyer Briand Wolf argued that his rant is protected under his First Amendment rights.

Wolf wrote in his submission to the court that the action "amounts to little more than attempted civil extortion," adding that it's "widely recognized that 'name-calling,' no matter how obnoxious or vulgar, is not defamatory."

He continued to state that not only is the case "completely frivolous in nature", it also is an example of a star being held liable because his "celebrity status turned what would have otherwise been a wholly private encounter" into a matter of significant public interest."

Bernstein also alleged LaBeouf had intentionally inflicted emotional distress by pounding his fist on the bar during the row. However, Wolf adds that these claims are "communicative and in furtherance of the very same protected free speech."

"While Plaintiff's feelings may have been hurt by being called a racist by Defendant, '(t)here is no occasion for the law to intervene where someone's feelings are hurt,'" he concluded. "Indeed, Plaintiff's own admitted conduct in threatening to hit Defendant with a Grey Goose bottle was more outrageous than anything that Defendant is alleged to have done."

It remains to be seen whether or not the case will be dismissed.
