Danica Patrick Opens Up About Dating Her "Hot" Boyfriend Aaron Rodgers. Danica Patrick and Aaron Rodgers are one of the most athletic couples in sports. On Monday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! the former race car driver opened up about what it's really like to date the Green Bay Packers quarterback. While Patrick said she's now the "biggest Packers fan," she admitted this wasn't always the case. In fact, she actually grew up rooting for the team's rival, the Chicago Bears. But does Rodgers share her passion for driving? "Aaron is a really good driver actually," Patrick said when asked who drives on dates. She also quipped that the football star probably has fewer tickets -- noting she once got pulled over three times in three days. Ever since Patrick confirmed their relationship in January, the two have enjoyed spending a lot of quality time together. They shared a smooch at the Daytona 500, celebrated the NASCAR pro's 36th birthday and recently packed on the PDA at the American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe. They've also enjoyed a few trips together, including visits to Mexico, Africa and India, where they met the Dalai Lama. If that's not enough, the two will also be each other's dates for the 2018 ESPY Awards, where Patrick is serving as host. The event is a significant one for the couple. Not only is Patrick making history as the event's first female host, but the award show is also where the couple met back in 2012. While Patrick said she will "absolutely not" make fun of her boyfriend during her monologue, Jimmy Kimmel tried to egg her on. "You got to call out the elephant in the room?" Patrick said, listening to his advice. "Or the hot guy in the room I should say." The 2018 ESPY Awards air Wednesday night at 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC. (Eonline)

Amanda Seyfried's Husband Was "Jealous" of Dominic Cooper. Fate brought Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper back together...well, fate and ABBA. Ten years after falling in love on the set of Universal Pictures' Mamma Mia!, the actors are reprising their roles in the sequel, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (in theaters Friday). The exes remained friendly after their breakup in 2011, which is why neither was nervous about returning for the sequel. "I think it will be fine working with Amanda again," Cooper told The Times last year, before production began. "I haven't spoken to her for a while, but we always remained friends. Though it'll be odd, gazing into each other's eyes and singing an ABBA song." Seyfried, who married Thomas Sadoski last year, never stopped caring about Cooper. "He'll always be in my life, regardless of what his girlfriends or future wife think," she explained to ELLE in 2013. "I'm never going to be with a guy that can't deal with my friendship with him." Luckily, Sadoski can handle it -- although he did get a little jealous. "I think he has the same kind of issues that I would have if we were hanging out with his ex-girlfriend from long ago," Seyfried told The Mirror earlier this week. "I think it's always like, 'I'm so in love, so that person must be so in love with her, too.' I assume everyone's in love with Tommy because I'm in love with him. I assume that everybody sees him the way I do. I'd guess he assumed Dominic is in love with me the way he's in love with me. And it's just not the case." Seyfried said she finds it "sweet" that her actor husband was envious of her chemistry with Cooper. "I'd rather he be jealous than completely fine with it. He's been great. He's very supportive and he loves this movie. They got along absolutely fine when we were shooting." Cooper, who broke up with Ruth Negga this year, previously said on ITV's Lorraine it was "lovely" to film Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again with Seyfried, as they had "stayed in contact." Ultimately, working together again was a breeze. "We split about three years after the movie came out and after we split we became really close friends," Seyfried said. "The last time I'd seen him was when I hung out with him on my 30th birthday. It wasn't weird seeing him again." (Eonline)

Pamela Anderson Holds Boyfriend Adil Rami's World Cup Trophy After Sparking Engagement Rumors. Pamela Anderson is going for the gold! The model, 51, was photographed holding the FIFA World Cup trophy after her French beau, Adil Rami, was part of the winning team that brought it home for France. Anderson looked over the moon as she held the trophy while Rami, 32, smiled as he pointed at the Canadian model. France won the World Cup against Croatia in a stunning victory on Sunday, taking the lead 4 to 2. Anderson was frequently seen in Russian cheering on Rami as France advanced during the competition. She sparked engagement rumors earlier this month after she was seen wearing a large ring that is estimated to be worth over $25,000 on her right hand while in the V.I.P. box during France's game against Croatia. The pair has reportedly been dating since May 2017 after meeting at the Monaco Grand Prix. The actress also opened up about their relationship in February telling the Daily Mail that Rami "cares about me deeply." "We have a very healthy, simple wonderful life without all the bells and whistles," she said. "We both have our children to try to squeeze into the equation, but he is amazing. He is a good guy, really a good guy." Rami, who was born on the island of Corsica to Moroccan parents, plays defense for Marseille and the French national team. He's nicknamed "Shrek" because he "eats voraciously and has been known, just occasionally, to belch. Loudly," according to ESPN in 2011. The relationship comes after Anderson's public support and ambiguous connection to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. He remains holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where the actress was first spotted visiting him there in October 2016. She's written about her numerous visits to him in several lengthy posts on her website. Anderson has two adult sons from her tumultuous three-year marriage to rocker Tommy Lee, which ended in 1998.

Using time off to see his lady! Niall Horan put romance first by traveling to New York to visit his girlfriend, Hailee Steinfeld, during some rare downtime, a source exclusively tells Us Weekly. "Niall flew to New York City to hang out with Hailee during his three-day break from tour," the insider says. "He had a show in Mexico on Saturday and another one in Houston on Wednesday." Horan, 24, is using this trip as an opportunity to spend quality time with Steinfeld, 21, without prying eyes. "He's in New York alone -- no staff, crew, friends, etc.," the source adds. "They've been staying at a hotel together in New York." The couple were spotted leaving their hotel in great spirits on Monday, July 16. "They left the hotel, holding hands, smiling and looking very happy," the source explains. "They then went to Saks Fifth Avenue and went shopping." While the former One Direction member is on a short break from his Flicker World Tour, Steinfeld is still hard at work. The "Most Girls" singer is set to perform at Radio City Music Hall on Monday night. Steinfeld posted a cheeky Instagram photo of herself with her tongue stuck out while goofing around in New York on Sunday, July 15. She captioned the pic: "Somewhere in the city." The duo have kept their pairing low-key thus far, but a source assured Us in May that they are "not trying to hide their relationship." Horan and Steinfeld were spotted "making out all night" at a Los Angeles bar at the time. The Pitch Perfect 3 star and the "Slow Hands" singer sparked romance rumors when they attended the West End production of Hamilton in January. In the following months, they were seen at her older brother's birthday party and at a Backstreet Boys concert together. Steinfeld even wore Horan's tour T-shirt in a picture she tweeted of herself in March. The Oscar nominee addressed the dating reports while speaking to Us in January. "I feel so lucky that [my fans] care enough about me to know what I'm doing every second of every day, but I think that sometimes it's hard for people in general to realize that there are boundaries to a person's life and personal life," she said at the time. "I am a very private person. I do love that I have the opportunity to share with them what I'm comfortable with and they're there to listen and support me." (US Weekly)

'Gotham' actor obtained restraining order against ex-girlfriend. An actor who appeared on "Gotham" obtained a restraining order against his ex-girlfriend after she allegedly harassed him following their split. PJ Marshall, who portrayed Cole Clemens on the "Batman"-inspired series, received the temporary restraining order against model Vanessa Lunnon in February 2018. The restraining order, which was obtained by Page Six, instructed Lunnon to refrain from "communication or any other contact" with Marshall, as well as from "assault, stalking, harassment, aggravated harassment" and "menacing." It was in effect until the end of March. Marshall, 49, has also appeared on shows including Netflix's "Luke Cage" and "Blue Bloods." Elizabeth Carlton, Marshall's current girlfriend, claimed on her website that her boyfriend's ex-girlfriend "cyberstalked" her on social media and "started posting nasty comments" on her Facebook photos from fake accounts." Carlton also claimed that Lunnon sent her old photos of herself and Marshall from when they were a couple. The alleged cyberstalking caused her to experience episodes of post-traumatic stress disorder. "I have struggled with Post-Traumatic Stress for many years and had learned how to deal with its symptoms, but the cyber-harassment brought all of my PTSD symptoms back," she wrote. Page Six has reached out to Marshall and Lunnon for comment. (PageSix)

Johnny Depp and Ex-Business Managers Settle $25 Million Fraud Suit. UPDATE: Johnny Depp has settled his $25 million fraud lawsuit with his former business managers, one month before trial was set to begin. A source with knowledge of the legal proceedings confirms the settlement to E! News. "Both sides reached a settlement, this matter is settled. TMG and the team are very happy," the insider tells us of the confidential settlement.

Johnny Depp's legal troubles are from over. Now just over five months after the A-list actor sued his former business managers for $25 million over allegations of fraud and mismanagement, The Management Group is firing back with a new set of evidence that claims Depp and his team were made aware of his crippling financial situation long before he reportedly learned about his $40 million debt. E! News obtained the legal documents filed by TMG, which include 11 exhibits of email correspondence between Depp himself, his sister Christi Dembrowski, and other lawyers, agents, managers and bankers regarding the movie star's accounts. In an email dated early 2010 and sent to Dembrowski by Johnny's main business manager, Joel Mandel, he wrote that his bank accounts were nearly $4 million overdrawn. Additionally, Mandel requested Depp's signature on documents to secure a $6 million loan, to which his family member replied, "was gonna get them to you this afternoon...no worries!" Other conversations between the parties often focused on an urgency to retrieve Depp's signature on other various documents related to his finances. Mandel reached out to Depp directly in December 2009 to express concerns over The Pirates of the Caribbean star's lavish spending habits. He advised his client to "take it easy on holiday spending" and "discuss some dollar limit" on participating in a Dillinger Museum auction. Mandel also asked to meet with Depp in person "to talk about where we are financially, what we have borrowed in order to sustain ourselves, what we have had to do to obtain those borrowings, what is now necessary to pay those borrowings back, and finally, to look realistically at income and expenses to work together on how to make sure that these are back in balance." The celeb responded one day later, explaining, "I am doing my very best on holiday spending, but there is only so much I can do, as I need to give my kiddies and famille as good as Christmas as possible, obviously within reason." Johnny also expressed his concern over flying commercial, claiming that because of paparazzi presence, it "would be a f--king nightmare of monumental proportions." Depp then pointed to his upcoming film projects as a monetary solution for his financial crisis. According to Johnny, he was set to earn $20 million for The Tourist, $35 million for Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and $20 million for Dark Shadows. He also offered to sell personal belongings such as art, bikes, cars and property to offset the debt. Depp concluded, "I don't like being in this situation, but there wasn't a whole lot of choice, as The Rum Diary was a sacrifice we knew would be happening and the last proper paycheck was Public Enemies." TMG alleges, "Depp wants to deny this discovery because it will establish that TMG did everything within its power to make Depp, and all of his closest advisors, fully aware of Depp's financial condition. If TMG was trying to hide Depp's finances to cover-up their alleged misconduct, they would not have repeatedly advised Depp's long-term personal lawyer, Jake Bloom, and his longtime agent, Tracey Jacobs, regarding the situation."

Floyd Mayweather just got ripped a new one in appeals court -- with a panel of judges saying there's a ton of evidence showing the boxer lied to Katie Couric in a '15 interview about his domestic violence case. Remember, Floyd's ex, Josie Harris, is suing Floyd for defamation ... claiming the boxer fudged the facts and lied about her to Couric when discussing his 2010 domestic violence arrest. In the interview, Floyd told Couric he did NOT "kick, stomp and beat someone" ... and explained, "Did I restrain a woman that was on drugs? Yes, I did." Floyd was convicted in that case ... after her son told cops he saw Mayweather "hitting and kicking her." An emergency room doctor also noted Harris had multiple contusions to the head, face and left forearm. Floyd had filed court docs to get Josie's lawsuit thrown out -- but, a California appeals court just ruled her defamation case CAN move forward because the evidence appears to be in her favor. Here's the opinion from one of the judges on the panel ... "Since this evidence is unequivocally at odds with the assertion that Mayweather was simply restraining a drug-addled Harris by only twisting her arm, it may reasonably be inferred that Mayweather acted with malice or reckless disregard of the truth during the Couric interview." Long story short ... Josie now has the green light to move forward with her case -- and it could cost Floyd a LOT of money. (TMZ)

Farrah Abraham Arrested for Beverly Hills Hotel Fight. UPDATE: The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office confirms to E! News that Farrah Abraham is being charged with one misdemeanor count of battery and one misdemeanor count of resisting an officer. If convicted, she faces a maximum of 18 months in jail. E! News has reached out to Abraham's rep for comment. A source says she plans to plead not guilty and calls the charges "fake news."

Farrah Abraham is defending herself in a new statement to E! News, saying, "This was all blown out of proportion. I was a guest at the hotel and I did not touch anyone. I was targeted and that's why these men sold stories." Abraham was photographed leaving the Beverly Hills Police Department on Wednesday wearing a tropical bikini top and pants set. She also took to Instagram Live in the hours after her arrest with a message for fans. "Hey guys, I just wanted to say thank you for all the well wishes and concern," she said to the camera. "It's sort of sad sometimes when you're out and you just can't have fun and people want to attack you and get you all in that trouble. I'm blessed by God and I don't ever want to be attacked again at a hotel."

Farrah Abraham allegedly put up a fight that landed her with police. The Teen Mom alum allegedly got into a fight at The Beverly Hills Hotel early Wednesday morning, according to the Beverly Hills Police Department. Per the BHPD, a male hotel security officer claimed Abraham struck him in the face with her forearm, grabbed his ear and pushed him in the face as he attempted to prevent her from re-entering the hotel after he asked her to leave. Abraham was allegedly having a "verbal altercation" with hotel guests when she was asked to exit. The security guard sustained minor injuries and was not taken to a hospital. According to the BHPD, she was arrested for misdemeanor battery and trespassing. She was booked at the Beverly Hills jail and is being held on $500 bail. "We can confirm there was an incident involving a patron in the Polo Lounge this morning," a spokesperson for The Beverly Hills Hotel told E! News in a statement. "As this is an ongoing investigation with the Beverly Hills Police Department, we are unable to provide any further comment at this time." Sources told E! News Abraham was heard yelling in the lounge, insulting and swearing at people. The sources explained the security guard was trying to diffuse the situation between Abraham and the guests. "She thought the other guests were going to be the ones in trouble, but the guard kept telling her to go and she wouldn't leave," a source said. "She was insistent that the other people were the ones that needed to go." Sources also said the star looked drunk and was shouting about how she was a celebrity to get the guard to let her stay. "At this time, we thank everyone for their concern," her rep Johnny Donovan of Tilt Media told E! News in a statement. "When Farrah is released, she will provide a statement on her own behalf. Farrah will continue to focus on her daughter -- who is her number one priority -- and her businesses. Please remember there are two sides to every story." Less than 24 hours ago, the 27-year-old shared a photo of herself with Mark Cuban and Kate Neilson poolside at the hotel. "Entrepreneur's workin even at the pool @mcuban @kneilson333 #summer #beverlyhills #2018 #texas," she captioned the shot. She also shared snaps of her 9-year-old daughter, Sophia, at the pool with her, swimming and enjoying a banana split sundae. Later, Neilson shared footage of the two women enjoying dinner together. TMZ was first to report the arrest. (Eonline)
