Felicity Jones Marries Director Charles Guard in Secret Wedding. Surprise! The Theory of Everything star Felicity Jones has wed her boyfriend of three years, film director Charles Guard, in a star-studded wedding ceremony at Sudeley Castle in the Cotswolds, Oxfordshire in England. The 34-year-old actress' rep confirmed the news to ET. The Sun reports that A-list pals Eddie Redmayne and Tom Hanks attended. The duo has been together since 2015 and has been notorious private during their three years together. The Uninvited film director reportedly popped the question last May, according to Us Weekly. The Star Wars: Rogue One star was spotted flashing a diamond sparkler on the red carpet in June 2017 but she never confirmed the engagement. While promoting The Theory of Everything, Jones sounded off about love to The Telegraph in 2014. "I am definitely romantic and I love romantic stories -- that's why I keep making romantic movies," she told the publication. "It's funny how seeing a love story never gets boring because it's the dream isn't it? It's the dream to have a true connection with another human being." Congrats to living your dream, Felicity!

Liam Payne and Cheryl Split: ''We Are Going Our Separate Ways.'' Liam Payne has announced that he and partner Cheryl have split up. The announcement comes just one day after the Girls Aloud singer's 35th birthday. On Sunday, the 24-year-old boybander posted the news on his Twitter, writing, "Cheryl and I are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways. It's been a tough decision for us to make. We still have so much love for each other as a family. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together." The announcement comes after months of speculation that the two were headed for a breakup. The couple is not married but welcomed a son named Bear in March 2017. In February, the singer was questioned about the rumors of a possible split with the popstar while attending the official opening of The Prince's Trust Cheryl's Trust Centre on Tuesday in Newcastle Upon Tyne, England. When journalists asked if she was "frustrated" that breakup rumors might overshadow her charity campaign, the singer dodged the question. "Do I find it frustrating? No, it doesn't bother me," Chezza told the BBC. "My focus is solely on this, it's taken seven years to get here and none of that matters. This is the most important part for me." The week prior to the event, multiple outlets reported that the duo was on the rocks because Cheryl had rejected Liam's desire for the couple to get married (although he'd previously spoken that he was not ready to settle down). The Sun reported that a divorce lawyer had been called in to help Liam keep his estimated 54million fortune ahead of a potential split. The outlet reported that a source said, "Liam is smitten with his little boy and wants things to work between him and Cheryl, so thought talk of marriage was a positive step." The outlet also reported that an insider had said, "She just doesn't seem to be thinking in the same sort of way and has made it clear that's not on the cards at the moment, which he saw as a real snub." Cheryl was previously married to Ashley Cole from 2006-2010 and to Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini from 2014-2016. (Eonline)

It's been nearly two years since Christina El Moussa split from her ex-husband, Tarek, and while the Flip or Flop star is in a great place now, the split took a serious toll on her at the time. "I felt like I was drowning," Christina, 34, says in the latest issue of PEOPLE. "I was doing whatever I could to stay above water and just get through the day." In 2016, following an "unfortunate incident" where Tarek, 36, fled their home with a gun onto national-parks property, prompting a helicopter and 11 officers to respond to the scene, the pair separated, leaving the fate of their reality show and million-dollar home in limbo. In the aftermath, "a lot of people were thinking, 'What's going to happen?' Tarek and I were so tied together on everything: real estate, the show, our children, our house. It was so stressful, and everyone was worried that it was going to explode." Despite the drama, there was no explosion and the pair continued working together while co-parenting their daughter, Taylor, 7, and son, Brayden, 2. "Somehow we managed to build something even bigger than we had before," she says. With the dust settled and the drama mostly behind them, Christina is moving into the next chapter of her life. "I thought of this year like a rebuild," she says. "So I'm starting from scratch. I'm moving, I have a new TV show, a new boyfriend -- there's a lot of projects going on. I'm just so happy, and for the first time in a long time, I feel at peace, which is such a good feeling." (People)

Melyssa Ford Suffers Skull Fracture and Concussion After Car Crash. Melyssa Ford is in the hospital after suffering a serious car crash. The music video model and former reality star was driving to a bridal shower on Thursday in Los Angeles when an 18-wheeler allegedly "merged into her lane, clipping her back right tire" while she was traveling on Ventura Freeway and exiting an avenue, her rep told Us Weekly. As her rep explained to the magazine, her Jeep Wrangler was sent into a "tailspin" and flipped over several times before landing upside down. Her rep told the magazine Ford suffered a skull fracture, concussion and bleeding in her brain among other injuries. Ford's friend and fellow reality star Claudia Jordan took to social media with Ford's permission to notify the public of the accident. She also shared a photo of the star laying on the side of the road beside a car on its head as people tried to help her. "She doesn't even remember this as she has a huge gash in her head and blood on the brain," Jordan described. "She was involved in a horrific accident that could have easily taken her life. It's actually a miracle she survived. She's injured FOR REAL." Jordan asked that any witnesses to the crash contact her with information. "As you can imagine Melyssa doesn't remember much so I'm hoping witnesses will come forward and assist in putting the pieces back together," she noted. Ford is recovering in a Los Angeles hospital, the magazine reported. (Eonline)

Lee Daniels says he knows exactly who is responsible for Mo'Nique getting blackballed from Hollywood -- Mo'Nique. The famed director tells us it's past time for Mo'Nique to quit bitching and blaming Tyler Perry, Oprah and himself for shutting her out of the movie biz. Especially because Lee played a key role in her winning an Oscar. As we reported ... Mo'Nique went after Lee, Tyler and O during a stand-up special last year at the Apollo Theater -- telling the Hollywood power trio they "can suck my d***, if I had one!" Lee fired back at her on "Raq Rants" ... telling Raquel no one should confuse the Mo situation with what went down with Damon Dash. He insists he gave Mo'Nique as much as she gave him when they made "Precious" -- comparing it to "making love without having sex." It's clear there's ZERO love now. He says Mo'Nique is playing herself, and it would be best for her to quit complaining -- but that's putting it nicely. Watch how he actually said it. And check out the full interview to see what he said about Diana Ross, Billie Holiday, and something he's never talked about before ... his sexuality. (TMZ)

Mark Ronson might soon start feeling a bounce to his step ... he just settled a second lawsuit over "Uptown Funk." The mega music producer and Lastrada Entertainment -- which owns rights to Zapp & Roger's 1980 classic "More Bounce to the Ounce" -- settled their legal beef over the hit song ... this according to new legal docs obtained by TMZ. As we reported ... Lastrada sued Ronson claiming Ronson ripped off Zapp & Roger's funk masterpiece to make the megahit "Uptown Funk" with Bruno Mars, who was NOT part of this lawsuit. It's unclear if money changed hands as part of the settlement. TMZ broke the story ... Bruno and Mark settled their lawsuit with the '80s funk band Collage, which had made similar claims. We were told by a well-placed music industry source there was no financial component to that settlement. Ronson and Bruno are not out of the woods just yet. A third lawsuit still looms as Angie Stone and her group, The Sequence, want Ronson and Bruno to pay up. (TMZ)

Andy Dick is facing charges for allegedly groping a complete stranger on the streets of L.A. ... TMZ has learned. Law enforcement sources tell us a woman filed a police report claiming the troubled comedian squeezed her butt twice as he walked past her on a sidewalk back in April. She also said he made lewd comments. According to docs, obtained by TMZ, the L.A. City Attorney slapped Dick with misdemeanor sexual battery, as well as misdemeanor simple battery ... for allegedly touching the woman. As we reported, Andy's wife claims he's been spiraling back into booze. He also threatened to lick and grope one of our photogs, and threatened suicide. We've reached out to Andy for comment ... so far, no word back. (TMZ)

Harvey Weinstein is facing 3 new charges for an alleged sexual assault of a woman in 2006. Manhattan D.A., Cyrus Vance Jr., announced Monday a grand jury has charged Weinstein with a first-degree criminal sexual act and 2 counts of predatory sexual assault. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the alleged incident happened on July 10, 2006, and Weinstein allegedly forced oral sex on the woman. All of the new counts are felonies and carry a minimum sentence of 10 years, and a max of life in prison. The D.A. did not reveal the alleged victim's name -- but the incident sounds very much like the one a woman named Mimi Haleyi described during a news conference last year ... with her attorney, Gloria Allred. Mimi claimed Weinstein attacked her in 2006. Weinstein's already facing 3 other charges for alleged attacks on 2 women in 2004 and 2013. (TMZ)

Smoke Dawg Dead at 21: Rapper Killed in Shooting. The rap world has lost a rising star. Jahvante Smart, known in the music world as Smoke Dawg, died Saturday night in Toronto after suffering a gunshot wound, Toronto Police said. He was one of three people officers found on the scene in the Queen Street West and Peter Street area with wounds. Ernest Modekwe, 28 -- reportedly another member of the music scene -- also died, while the third person, an unidentified woman, is expected to recover from her injuries. Police have asked anyone in the area who heard or saw anything out of the ordinary Saturday night and Sunday morning and for any residents who have security cameras on their property to contact authorities. "Jahvante Smart, also known to many of his fans as Smoke Dawg passed away on the evening of June 30th, 2018. He was 21 years old. Jahvante touched the lives of many fans not only in Toronto but around the world," his rep confirmed to E! News. "Music was able to let him travel the world and chase his dream of becoming a superstar." Last year, Smoke Dawg performed with Drake during his Boy Meets World tour. "All these gifts and blessed souls and inner lights being extinguished lately is devastating," the award-winning rapper wrote in tribute to the late star on social media. "I wish peace would wash over our city. So much talent and so many stories we never get to see play out. Rest up Smoke." Smart's rep elaborated, "As a young man from Regent Park, he overcame poverty and grew into a responsible, caring grown man who took care of his friends and family. He helped people wherever he could and will be remembered for his huge smile and glowing personality." A candlelight vigil will be held on Monday at 8:30 p.m. in Toronto at the Metropolitan Church Park at Queen Street East and Church Street in Smart's honor. The star's rep asked that attendees please bring flowers, candles and posters. "Everyone is welcome." The rapper is survived by his 1-year-old daughter, his parents and 13 siblings. Our thoughts are with Smart's loved ones at this time. (Eonline)

Alan Longmuir, Founding Bass Player With Bay City Rollers, Dies at 70. Alan Longmuir, founding bass player with the Bay City Rollers, the Scottish '70s pop phenomenon, has died following a brief illness. He was 70. The so-called "tartan teen sensations from Edinburgh" are said to have sold more than 100 million albums in a career which exploded on both sides of the Atlantic. They've been described as the One Direction of their era. Longmuir formed the band, initially known as the Saxons, back in 1966 with his younger brother and drummer Derek, and singer Gordon "Nobby" Clark. The lineup went through multiple changes through the years, with Longmuir leaving the band in 1976 and returning two years later, after which time he alternated between bass duties, rhythm guitar and keys. In its heyday, the band scored three top 10s in the U.S., including a No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 with "Saturday Night," in 1976. And in the U.K., the Rollers snagged No. 1s with "Bye Bye Baby" and "Give a Little Love" (both from 1975) and saw ten songs hit the Top 10. The band split in 1981. Longmuir reportedly died at the Forth Valley Royal Hospital in Larbert, Scotland on Monday morning (July 2) surrounded by family and friends. He was flown home three weeks ago after falling ill on holiday in Mexico. The band confirmed his passing with a post on social media. "Our sincere condolences to all his family, friends and fans," the message reads. Longmuir's friend and biographer Liam Rudden described him as "one of the most gentle, generous and kind-hearted people I've ever known". Longmuir was part of a reunion in late 2015 with Les McKeown and Stuart Wood, which was promoted as "a very special Christmas present to all the fans that have kept the faith with the band over the years."

THE OTHER STUFF . . .

Olivia de Havilland turns 102, outlives rest of 'Gone with the Wind' cast. Olivia de Havilland, the lone surviving cast member of the Hollywood epic "Gone with the Wind," turned 102 Sunday. The two-time "Best Actress" Oscar winner who was appointed a "Dame" by Britain last year -- has lived in Paris since 1956. "So how do I feel about older age?" she said in an interview with "Entertainment Weekly" before her 99th birthday. "Crazy about it! Wouldn't trade it for anything!" De Havilland's role as the sweet, suffering "Melanie" in the 1939 epic "Gone with the Wind" rocketed her to fame and she went on to win Academy Awards for her roles in "The Snake Pit" and "The Heiress." Born in Tokyo to British parents, her sister was actress Joan Fontaine, who died in 2013 at the age of 96. A lawsuit she filed against FX Networks over her depiction in a miniseries about the feud between her and Bette Davis and Joan Crawford was dismissed in March. The court said the portrayal of de Havilland in "Feud," created by producer Ryan Murphy, was overwhelmingly positive. (PageSix)

Michael Che Sends a Clown to Colin Jost's "Intimate" Birthday Dinner With Scarlett Johansson. Michael Che pulled a prank on his Saturday Night Live co-writer Colin Jost this weekend by sending a clown to his birthday dinner with Scarlett Johansson. Che posted a picture of a text exchange he had with Jost over the hilarious incident on Instagram. In the exchange, Jost texted his "Weekend Update" co-star a picture of him wearing a balloon hat, which was likely crafted by the aforementioned clown. While Johansson appeared to be laughing over the prank, Jost didn't seem as amused. Still, Che appeared to get a kick out of the whole thing. "I sent a party clown to Colin[']s very intimate birthday dinner," he wrote. The comedy star turned 36 years old on June 29. Of course, his girlfriend wanted to help him celebrate his big day. Rumors of the couple's romance started spreading in May 2017. While the two initially played coy about their relationship, they made their official debut as a couple in December 2017. Jost confirmed their relationship status by referring to Johansson as his "girlfriend" during a May 2018 episode of SNL. They also attended the Met Gala together that same month. (Eonline)

Oh, the places they'll go! While documenting her family's recent trip to Bali on Saturday, Pink shared multiple family photos of herself and husband Carey Hart smiling alongside their adorable children: daughter Willow Sage, 7, and son Jameson Moon, 17 months. "Thank you to the people and the ocean and the energy of Bali. We love you," the "What About Us" singer, 38, wrote alongside the sweet snapshots, one of which featured the couple's daughter standing in front of a picturesque beach on the Indonesian island. The family of four also managed to take a sweet group photo of themselves posing together on a set of steps. In the image, Willow sits on her own while Jameson rests on his mother's lap. The mother of two also shared an adorable photo of Jameson standing on the beach while reaching down to play in the waves. While documenting the trip earlier in the week, Pink managed to snap a photo of the siblings cozying up together in front of an elaborately painted door. She also shared a photo of herself smiling at her daughter, while the pair posed in the middle of a market. "What you seek is seeking you- Rumi," she captioned the shot, adding the hashtags, "#adventureseeking #mylove #mydaughter#almosttoaustralia #soclose #soexcited." The singer is currently in Australia, where she'll kick off the next leg of her Beautiful Trauma tour on Tuesday in Perth -- and while it may have been hard to leave Bali behind, Hart, 42, seems excited about their time Down Under! Got to go for a fun lil putt w/ wifey @pink today! Her first time on a @indianmotorcycle #scout," the former professional motocross competitor wrote alongside a photo of himself riding around in Perth on Saturday.

Any good spots to check out around Perth? I need to get out of the city," he added. "We made it!!!!" Pink added in a separate Instagram post, in which she also included a photo of herself sipping on a pint of beer. (People)

Kim Kardashian West had to address the elephant in the room. Last week, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star put sister Khloe Kardashian's boyfriend Tristan Thompson on blast for having blocked her on social media in the wake of his cheating scandal -- but it was all in good fun. "I had to do it," she told Extra while hosting her KKW Beauty pop-up shop at Westfield Century City mall in Los Angeles. "I had to!" Khloe, 34, welcomed her first child, daughter True, with boyfriend Tristan Thompson on April 12 -- just days after allegations surfaced that he had cheated on her throughout her pregnancy. Kim, 37, was the most outspoken member of the family about the scandal, calling it "so f -- ed up," which resulted in Thompson, 27, blocking her on Instagram. But it's water under the bridge now. While birthday last week, Kim playfully teased Thompson about the block, sharing videos of him officially unblocking her on her Instagram story to prove that they're moving on. "I did [the video] just spur-of-the-moment," she told Extra. "I thought about it, I was like, 'Wait a minute, you have your phone out and this is really awkward 'cause you blocked me. ... We're all in the same room again, can I get a follow, can I get an unblock at least?' " As for where she gets her protective instincts from? "I was just raised, you know, that blood is thicker than water and family first," she said. "And that's also what keeps us sane. When we have those family dinners and we just get to hang out and be together through all the craziness that we've been through, we love each other and support each other, so it's always just fun to be together and no matter what we'll support each other, and we know that." Though Khloe's decision to reconcile with Thompson after the scandal didn't go over well with her famous family, a source recently told PEOPLE that they "respect her decision." "Everyone knows Khloe plans on staying with Tristan, so things have been civil so far," the source said. "They still have opinions about Tristan's bad behavior, of course, but no one wants to upset Khloe." Another source told PEOPLE Kim and her sisters have "jokingly" been giving Thompson "a bit of a hard time" about the alleged infidelity now that he and Khloe are back in Los Angeles for the summer and spending plenty of time with her family. "But otherwise, everyone is being respectful and focusing on catching up with Khloe," said the source. "Khloe is so happy being a mom. Everyone just wants her to stay in this happy bubble for as long as possible." (People)

The King has decided where he's going next in the NBA -- LeBron James is heading to the Los Angeles Lakers ... and for a helluva lot of money.

Drita D'Avanzo threatened to slap Farrah Abraham in the face if she comes across her in person again -- and now she's doubling down on that promise ... saying it's very real. We spoke to the former "Mob Wives" reality star about her beef this weekend with the ex-"Teen Mom" OG after Farrah called her a "has been" and unprofessional following an event they co-hosted together in Atlantic City. Farrah even cropped a clown face over Drita on IG. Drita responded to the hate on social media, saying she'd be happy to deliver an open-palm whack to Farrah's noggin if she came within arm's length. She now tells us she's serious about that hypothetical, and it sounds like she's willing to do jail time to send a message. Fucking low class trash dusted up nobody show up and work you have no work ethic and act like a criminal say what you want about me so you feel better about how pathetic you are! Use me for press haha your a loser go get a real job my lawyer will be contacting you Psycho?????? -- Farrah Abraham (@F1abraham) June 30, 2018 Meanwhile, Farrah has already threatened legal action -- and she's reportedly gunning to file a restraining order soon through her lawyers. It's possible she might need it against Drita -- this lady ain't playing around. That ... or just offer a simple apology. Apparently, that'd square things away in Jersey. (TMZ)
