Ellen DeGeneres Grills Gwen Stefani Over Blake Shelton Engagement Rumors. Will Gwen Stefani soon say "I do" with Blake Shelton? The "Make Me Like You" singer and her Voice beau, who have been going strong for over three years, have been the subject of engagement rumors for quite some time now. So, when Stefani appeared on Tuesday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, talk show host Ellen DeGeneres couldn't help but grill her pal on her relationship. DeGeneres started off by asking Stefani about Shelton's Sexiest Man Alive title, which was recently awarded to by Idris Elba. "When the title came upon him, did you notice he became better in bed?" DeGeneres asked. Shocked by the frankness of the inquiry, Stefani shouted, "Oh my god! That was so crazy!" And then, just when the singer thought she'd escaped the heat of the conversation, DeGeneres said, "So, Blake told me that y'all are engaged now. So, yes he told me you're engaged, so let's talk about that." Stefani immediately tried to shut down the rumor, shaking her head, "No we're not! What are you talking about?! We're not! He's my boyfriend." "Every time I come on here I think it's gonna be like, I got this, you know. But I don't, I don't. But I do like talking about him!" Stefani said. "He's awesome and we got to do a video together. See how I did that?!" The musical couple recently shot a music video together for their holiday duet, "You Make It Feel like Christmas," even though the country star isn't a fan of filming them. Originally Shelton only agreed to participate with a little performance, but Stefani was able to convince her boyfriend to get more involved in the project. Stefani and DeGeneres' conversation turned more serious later on, resulting in Stefani reaching for a tissue as the women chatted about their friendship. At one point, DeGeneres recalled Stefani playing her a song in a bathroom that turned into a huge hit. "Gwen deserves everything she has, she deserves this love, she deserves the life that she has and the career, because she went through a lot," DeGeneres told the audience. Later on in the show, the No Doubt vocalist performed "Cheer for The Elves" off her holiday album, You Make It Feel Like Christmas. Coming up, Stefani has some more shows around the corner for her "Just a Girl" Las Vegas residency. (Eonline)

Cardi B and Offset Break Up After 1 Year of Marriage. Cardi B and Offset appear to be calling it quits. On Tuesday evening, the "Bodak Yellow" rapper took to Instagram with a big announcement for her fans. As it turns out, the Grammy nominee and Offset are not together anymore. "So everybody been bugging me and everything and you know, I've been trying to work things out with my baby father for a hot minute now and we're really good friends and you know we're really good business partners," Cardi B explained in her video. "He's always somebody that I run to to talk to and we got a lot of love for each other but things just haven't been working out between us for a long time and it's nobody's fault." She continued, "I guess we grew out of love, but we're not together anymore. I don't know. It might take time to get a divorce and I'm gonna always have a lot of love for him because he is my daughter's father and yah." Cardi B captioned the post, "There you go... peace and love." Offset would comment by writing "Y'all won." The Hollywood couple, who are proud parents to a four-month-old daughter named Kulture, secretly got married in September 2017 with a frills-free ceremony. In fact, Cardi B didn't confirm the wedding until June 2018. "Our relationship was so new breaking up and making up and we had a lot of growing to do but we was so in love we didn't want to lose each other," she shared on Twitter at the time. "We found someone to marry us, and she did, just the two of us and my cousin. I said I do, with no dress, no makeup and no ring!" The breakup may come as a surprise to fans. After all, the pair attended 102.7 KIISFM's Jingle Ball concert last weekend at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif., where they had a PDA-filled performance. "Thank you husband. He's so fine," she told the crowd after singing "Ric Flair Drip" together. "That's my baby daddy yo." Shortly after Cardi B's announcement, Offset revealed on Instagram Stories that he will be "dropping a song tomo." Perhaps fans will learn more about what led to the breakup. (Eonline)

Miley Cyrus Reveals ''Strange Premonition'' That Foreshadowed Malibu House Fire. Miley Cyrus' art imitated her life in a way she could have never predicted. During an appearance on On Air With Ryan Seacrest, the pop star spoke candidly about the wildfire that destroyed her and Liam Hemsworth's Malibu, Calif. home last month. Instead of wallowing in "post-traumatic stress," as she described, Miley has chosen to cope with the devastating loss through "post-traumatic growth." So when her latest song, a Mark Ronson collab titled "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart," dropped last week, many noticed the lyrics referenced a burning house. As it turns out, Miley penned the track months before the Woolsey fire sparked in Southern California. Explained the 26-year-old, "We've been working for the past year and a half on the next record... So, I didn't know the best way to come out of this blackout period but it's actually really crazy because I wrote this song with Mark in May before we actually lost our Malibu house." "One of the lyrics is 'This burning house / There's nothing left / It's smoking and we both know it'... It was like this strange premonition, so the timing just worked out," Miley admitted. In the aftermath of the fire, Cyrus and Hemsworth pledged $500,000 to The Malibu Foundation, which was launched to help support members of the local community as they work to rebuild. And despite the tragic experience, Miley shared she's in a "really good healing place" thanks to the love and support from her family members. "I definitely learned a lot. My dad [Billy Ray Cyrus] has always told me, 'Life is a series of adjustments' and sometimes we never understand what our parents are telling us until we start to experience life more," she said. "... I'm starting to really understand what that means now experiencing something as life-changing and devastating as a natural disaster. It's a really deep character challenge to see the way you react to loss." She continued, "Something else I kind of took in that I heard was for me I had a choice of post-traumatic stress or post-traumatic growth and I think you always feel you don't have control especially when something happens that's a natural disaster because there's no beating nature... So, to be able to go into yourself and to find that growth and say 'What am I going to do about this?' And being an active member of my community, not as a celebrity figure, but just as a neighbor, has been a big growing experience." All that survived the house fire were massive concrete letters that spelled out L-O-V-E. It's this reminder, Miley said during the interview, that has helped shift her perspective. As she described, "That's literally and physically all that's left so I felt that was really poetic. You can always rebuild a physical structure, but that love that can't be destroyed is always there and always stayed strong so that gave me a lot of light during a dark time." (Eonline)

Sarah Hyland Takes Break From Social Media Due to "Horrible" Comments After Cousin's Death. Sarah Hyland's social media platforms will be dark for a bit as she continues to mourn her cousin who died in a car crash over the weekend. On Sunday, the Modern Family star revealed in her Instagram story that her 14-year-old cousin Trevor Canaday was killed by a drunk driver on Saturday night in Omaha, Nebraska. Trevor's father, Bryan, was hospitalized and survived. She shared a screenshot from her family's GoFundMe page run by Trevor's sisters that is raising money for funeral costs and medical expenses and wrote, "This is my 14 year old cousin Trevor. Yesterday, he was killed by a drunk driver. My uncle is still in the hospital in need of more surgeries." Despite the tragedy, Hyland apparently continued to receive some negative comments from social media users. She called them out on Twitter and encouraged anyone with anything negative to say not say it at all. "I'd like to ask those who have negative thoughts or opinions about the tragedy that happened to my family, to keep them to themselves. You don't know all the details. And how dare you attack when a beautiful life has been lost," she wrote. Unfortunately, the hostility continued. "You guys finally did it. Your horrible negative ignorant words have broken me. Happy?" Hyland tweeted. "Staying offline for a while. I have a special announcement and video releasing on Wednesday I believe. So. There's that." Hyland's Modern Family co-star Ariel Winter also showed her support for the Canaday family and her friend. In addition, Hyland's only message on her Instagram page about taking a brief hiatus was a picture of the peace sign emoji in her story. Jeffrey Eggeling, the driver who hit Trevor's car, was arrested and booked on two counts of driving under the influence and leaving the scene of a personal injury crash. Hyland penned a tweet about the perpetrator. "JEFFERY EGGERLING had two prior DUI's and tried to RUN from the scene of the crime after hitting my Uncle's car SO fast that my 14 yr old cousin, who was wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle," she wrote. "JEFFERY EGGERLING is a murderer. May he rot in hell." According to a press release by the Omaha Police Department, Eggeling "fled on foot from the scene following the crash." When the crash initially occurred, Trevor was "ejected from the vehicle. The police department added that Bryan (official name Clifford Canaday) "Suffered head and facial injuries considered serious and non-life threatening," whereas Eggeling left the scene unscathed. The Douglas County District Attorney's office told E! News, "Mr. Eggeling is currently charged with motor vehicle homicide, DUI causing serious bodily injury, and leaving the scene after accident causing serious injury or death." He has a bond hearing on Wednesday morning. Since its creation on Dec. 2, the GoFundMe page for Bryan and Trevor has greatly surpassed their $25,000 goal. The Canaday family has received over $37,000 in donations and wrote about Trevor, "His dad, Bryan, is recovering physically, but sadly Trevor has gained his wings and is singing and playing some crazy football in heaven." It continued, "Trevor was a funny, smart, innovative, athletic, goofy kid and he was so loved. His memory will live on in many ways." Our thoughts go out to Hyland and her entire family during this difficult time. (Eonline)

Demi Lovato is getting back in fighting shape. The pop star, 26, posted a fresh-faced selfie on Tuesday in her Brazilian jiu-jitsu attire, captioned "sweaty, messy, jiu-jitsu hair ... " Lovato, who completed a 90-day rehab stint after an apparent overdose in July, has since kept a low profile on social media besides wishing followers a happy Thanksgiving and urging her fans to vote on Election Day. Her post included the hashtags "#bluebelt" and "#nevergiveup." The "Skyscraper" singer earned her blue belt in 2017 and has previously spoken about martial arts as a form of exercise and stress relief. "Being able to do the moves that you do and flow with people, it's an art form and it's really beautiful, and it takes my mind off of things that I stress about, [because] I'm constantly thinking: 'What do I need to defend? What move can I make now?' It's like a game of chess," she told Elvis Duran last year. As she continues to get back on her feet post-rehab, Lovato is splitting her time between an outpatient halfway house and a private residence in Los Angeles. (PageSix)

Pete Davidson Apparently Blocked Ariana Grande on Instagram. Pete Davidson isn't the only one saying "thank u, next" around here. The Saturday Night Live comedian recently returned to Instagram, but this time Davidson did it without one particular follower: his ex-fiancee Ariana Grande. The two of them got engaged in June and ended their relationship in October. On Monday, he penned a passionate note to his Instagram followers about the perpetual bullying he has been dealing with over the past few months. "I've kept my mouth shut. Never mentioned any names, never said a word about anyone or anything. I'm trying to understand how when something happens to a guy the whole entire world just trashes him without any facts of frame of reference," he wrote. "Especially in today's climate where everyone loves to be offended and upset it truly is mind boggling. I've been getting online bullied and in public by people for 9 months." Davidson also took a moment to talk about mental health, an issue that he has been very transparent and vocal about over the years. He continued, "I've spoken about BPD and being suicidal publicly only in the hopes that it will help bring awareness and help kids like myself who don't want to be on this earth." The comedian concluded his note by telling his haters that he won't let them win. He expressed, "I just want you guys to know. No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself. I won't. I'm upset I even have to say this. To all those holding me down and seeing this for what it is I see you and I love you." On Tuesday, the "No Tears Left to Cry" singer defended her ex on Instagram. "I know u already know this, but I feel I need to remind my fans to please be gentler with others. I really don't endorse anything but forgiveness and positivity," she wrote in a note on her story. "I care deeply about Pete and his health. I'm asking you to please be gentler with others, even on the internet." Grande continued to write about her own experiences dealing with negativity and how she deals with it. "I've learned thru my own mistakes not to be reactive on socials, so I do understand, but you truly don't know what anybody is experiencing ever, regardless of what they choose to display on social media or how they may appear in public. I can promise u [sic] that so please let whatever point you're trying to make go," she wrote. She ended on a positive note about her ex: "I will always have irrevocable love for him and if you've gotten any other impression from my recent work, you might have missed the point." Also, on Monday, an Ariana Grande fan account posted a screenshot that they received from the singer herself about Davidson's Instagram note. "i have never encouraged anything but forgiveness," Grande wrote. "i care deeply about pete and his health and would never encourage any kind of mistreatment. i haven't seen any of it because i'm blocked but i want you to know that i would never want or encourage that ever and you should know that. i care about him deeply." When the account tweeted the picture of her message, Grande replied with a heart emoji. She even praised Davidson in her record-breaking hit song "Thank U, Next." She sings in the first verse, "Even almost got married / And for Pete, I'm so thankful." On Monday, E! News confirmed that Davidson is "dating again". (Eonline)

Les Moonves received oral sex from multiple CBS employees, and even had one at his beck and call for years ... according to a network investigation that could end up costing him $120 million. CBS hired attorneys who just completed an investigation into more than a dozen sexual misconduct allegations against the former network honcho, and the report says Moonves "received oral sex from at least 4 CBS employees under circumstances that sound transactional and improper." The clear insinuation being he gave the women acting roles or other network jobs in exchange for sex. According to the report ... first reported by the New York Times ... Moonves destroyed evidence and misled investigators who spoke 4 times. The investigators say they found him "evasive and untruthful at times and to have deliberately lied about and minimized the extent of his sexual misconduct." As for the "on call" employee -- the report says multiple CBS employees said they were of the woman and believed she was "protected from discipline or termination" Moonves admitted getting oral sex in his office from the woman -- a subordinate -- but described it as consensual ... according to the report. The sexual misconduct includes incidents before and after he joined CBS in 1995. The report calls his 2004 marriage to Julie Chen a "bright line" ... after which the misconduct appears to have stopped. What's at stake here is his $120 million severance package. If the CBS Board of Directors reviews the report and believes Moonves violated his employment agreement ... it can pull the plug on that payment. The investigators say CBS has justification to do just that. His attorney told the NYT, "Moonves denies having any nonconsensual sexual relation" and cooperated with the investigation. (TMZ)

The Dynamite Kid -- one half of the famed British Bulldogs tag team duo -- has died, his family announced Wednesday. The wrestler -- real name Tommy Billington -- had been battling health issues for years though his exact cause of death has not been revealed. He turned 60 years old on Wednesday ... the same day he passed away. Dynamite made his WWF debut back in 1984 and famously wrestled stars like Bret "The Hitman" Hart and Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart. His biggest moment was winning the tag team championship with British Bulldog Davey Boy Smith at Wrestlemania II back in 1986.

Dynamite Kid's nephew, Davey Boy Smith Jr. -- a former pro wrestler himself -- issued a statement on his passing Wednesday morning, "It deeply saddens me to announce the passing of Tom Billington the 'Dynamite Kid.' I was really happy and glad I got to see Dynamite one last time last June in the UK."

Thanks for everything and sad to have lost another family member. Rest In Peace Dyno." (TMZ)

Roger V. Burton, Jazz Musician and Late-Blooming Actor, Dies at 90. Roger V. Burton, a jazz musician and actor who played with Peggy Lee and Nat King Cole and appeared on Baskets and The Cool Kids, died Friday at his home in Santa Monica, his five daughters announced. He was 90. Burton stars with Frasier actress Peri Gilpin in an upcoming short film, Old Guy, about the stereotyped depictions of aging in American media. Produced by Five Sisters Productions -- his daughters' film company -- the 21-minute film was inspired by Burton, who noted that elderly actors are often listed in scripts or credits without a name; they're simply called "Old Guy." Burton, who had only been acting since about 1998, showed up on such series as Shameless, My Name Is Earl, Fargo, Monk, House, The George Lopez Show and Up All Night; participated in skits on Jay Leno's The Tonight Show; and appeared in films including Manna From Heaven (2002) and The Clapper (2017). Burton portrayed the father of Martha (Martha Kelly) on the FX comedy Baskets and a character named Philips on the new Fox sitcom The Cool Kids. A professional musician since he was 11, Burton played the jazz trombone in big bands and on film soundtracks. Nicknamed "Schoolboy" -- he used his set breaks to finish his homework -- he entered USC at 16 and left with a bachelor's degree in music and a master's degree in sciences. Burton performed with Peggy Lee, Andre Previn, Nat King Cole, Johnny Ray, Frankie Laine, the Lennie Niehaus Octet and The Ink Spots and was a regular on CBS' The Hoagy Carmichael Show. He switched to the bass and played in smaller combos after getting lessons from a friend, Charles Mingus. After Burton wrote a response to a psychology study that claimed musicians were irresponsible, he was invited to pursue graduate studies in the field of psychology and given a full scholarship to Harvard. Burton became a developmental psychology researcher at the National Institute of Mental Health, did research with psychologist Jean Piaget in Switzerland in 1967 and became a full professor at SUNY Buffalo in moral development and childhood social development. He toured in the early 1970s with his wife, novelist and screenwriter Gabrielle Burton, as opening speakers for Gloria Steinem, talking about their commitment as parents to defining gender roles and housework more equally. After leaving his teaching post in Buffalo, he retired to accompany his wife to Los Angeles, where she was working as a screenwriter, and began a new career as an actor. At 80 years old, Burton and his wife climbed to the base camp of Mount Kilimanjaro. Survivors include his daughters Maria, Jennifer, Ursula, Gabrielle and Charity; sons-in-law David, Aniruddh, Graeme, Darin and Steve; sister JoDe; and eight grandchildren. (Billboard)
