Tom Hardy and Charlotte Riley Welcome Baby No. 2. Tom Hardy is a dad once again. The Venom star and his famous wife, Peaky Blinders actress Charlotte Riley have welcomed their second child together, a source confirmed to E! News. While the baby's sex and name remain unconfirmed, the source noted that reports of the child being named after Forrest Gump are untrue. The couple, who wed in 2014, first grew their family in 2015 when Riley gave birth to their first child together. The Oscar nominee has kept his personal life so private that it was only until Riley stepped out with the actor on the red carpet for the Legend premiere that her visible baby bump confirmed their first pregnancy. Hardy is also dad to a 10-year-old son, Louis Hardy, whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Rachel Speed. As the actor previously shared with E! News, Louis was hard to impress when it came time for his latest superhero movie. "This is an honest human being," he said with a laugh. "So, yeah, the die-hard fan compared to the 10-year-old boy. One cannot lie to the dog or the child, you know. They see straight through your fantasies." As he said of his comic book aficionado, "[Louis] has factual knowledge, and it's very important that I observed and reflect that knowledge correctly in my work." Now, there might be another future movie critic in the family. Congratulations to couple on their newest arrival! (Eonline)

Katy Perry Is 'Glad' She 'Made the Right Choice' With 'Angel' Boyfriend Orlando Bloom. No second-guessing herself! Katy Perry left a sweet comment on her beau Orlando Bloom's Instagram on Saturday, January 12, ahead of the actor's birthday -- and it's safe to say she's thankful for him. "last selfie on a set in my 41st year ... i'm grateful and as I contemplate the passage of time I really feel age is just a number and we are not," the Pirates of the Caribbean star, now 42, captioned the post. "We ARE the choices we make, the words we speak, the thoughts we create and the actions we take... they shape our realities... and as I say to myself and my son... make smart choices... happy me and my loyal companion." This led the American Idol judge, 34, to take to the comments section and gush: "Glad I made the right choice doe. Happy birthday angel." Perry later took to her page to pay tribute to Bloom on his special day. "Happiest 42nd birthday to the kindest and cutest man I've had the pleasure of spending time with," she wrote alongside a pic of her love wearing a shirt that read, "Woman power." Perry and Bloom split in March 2017 after a year of dating, but rekindled their romance in January 2018. They later made their red carpet debut at the Gala for the Global Ocean at the Opera of Monte Carlo in Monaco in September 2018. The following month, a source told Us Weekly that "getting engaged is definitely a possibility in the future" for the two. "Katy and Orlando have worked out all their kinks and have had really fluid communication about what each of them wants," the insider added at the time. "Katy doesn't want this relationship to be a repeat cycle of things she's already experienced in past relationships that didn't work out. She's learned to grow from them and doesn't want that in her current relationship." The pair recently rang in the new year together in Aspen, Colorado, surrounded by friends, including the "Roar" songstress' ex-boyfriend Diplo. (UsMagazine)

Brie Larson and Alex Greenwald Split 2 Years After Getting Engaged. Brie Larson and fiance Alex Greenwald have broken up after dating for over five years. A source confirms to E! News that the director and musician recently called off their engagement. The pair got engaged nearly three years ago in May 2016 while on a vacation in Tokyo, Japan. Following the news of his proposal, Brie and Alex kept any wedding plans under wraps. They made their last red-carpet appearance together as a couple on the Avengers: Infinity War red carpet in April. And on their social media, the artistic individuals kept the PDA to a minimum. Every so often, Brie or Alex would share a photo, giving a glimpse into their private life. The last picture Brie shared of her beau was in November, which she captioned with the Emily Bront quote: "Happiness quite unshared can scarcely be called happiness; it has no taste." While Alex didn't appear to share romantic quotes about his relationship with Brie, people can spot small details in his photos that are cute shout-outs to his girlfriend. In July, he shared a photo of himself wearing a Captain Marvel hat and gave Brie credit for taking the pic. In other instances, Brie thanked Alex for his support during speeches at awards shows. During her acceptance speech at the Gotham Independent Film Awards in 2013, Brie said, "I'd like to thank my boyfriend, Alex Greenwald, for making me pasta and taking care of our puppy while I made this movie." And in 2016 she made a serious declaration of her love on the stage of the Screen Actors Guild awards. "My wonderful boyfriend, Alex -- I love you so much," the actress proclaimed. People was the first to break the news of their split. (Eonline)

Andy Murray Tearfully Announces His Plans to Retire From Tennis. Andy Murray is retiring from tennis. The pro tearfully announced his plans at an emotional press conference in Melbourne, Australia on Friday, citing his hip injury as his reason for stepping away from the sport. Breaking the news clearly wasn't easy for the athlete. After answering a few initial questions in which he revealed he was "not great," he stepped away from the microphone to wipe away a tear and gather his thoughts. "I'm not feeling good," he admitted once he returned. "I've obviously been struggling for a long time. I've been in a lot of pain for what's been probably about 20 months now. I've pretty much done everything that I could to try to get my hip feeling better and, you know, it hasn't helped loads. I'm in a better place than I was six months ago, but, you know, still in a lot of pain. It's been, you know, it's been tough." Murray then told reporters he had spoken to his team and revealed he "can't keep doing this." Knowing he "needed to have an end point," the 31-year-old tennis star decided he wanted to make it through to Wimbledon. "That's where I'd like to stop and stop playing," he said, "but I'm also not certain I'm able to do that." According to ESPN, he then said he intended to play in his Australian Open match against Roberto Bautista Agut on Monday; however, he hinted even this could be his last tournament. "There's a chance for sure," he said, per the sports media outlet, "because I'm not sure I'm able to play through the pain for another four or five months. I have an option to have another operation, which is a little more severe than I had before, having my hip resurfaced, which will allow me to have a better quality of life and be out of pain. That's something I'm seriously considering." Murray won the U.S. Open in 2012 and Wimbledon in 2013 and 2016. He also has two Olympic gold medals. He underwent surgery for his hip last January. Per the BBC, he's played 14 matches since returning to the sport in June. (Eonline)

UFC superstar Holly Holm has filed for divorce from her husband, TMZ Sports has learned. Holm filed court docs in Albuquerque seeking to end her marriage to Jeff Kirkpatrick ... her college sweetheart at the University of New Mexico. The two were married in Cancun back in 2012 after dating for years. But ultimately, Holm decided it wasn't working and filed for divorce, citing "incompatibility because of discord and conflict of personalities." According to the court docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, Holm says the two separated in March 2018 and no longer live as husband and wife. The signs were on social media -- she hadn't posted a photo of Jeff since Feb. 2018. Holly -- whose legal name is Holly Holm-Kirkpatrick -- has asked the judge to restore her maiden name, "Holly Holm." The two have no children together -- so child support won't be an issue. In her docs, Holly also says both of them are self-supporting and neither party should get spousal support. Jeff could feel differently considering Holm has reportedly made more than $1.6 million in her MMA career with huge fights against stars like Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate and Cris Cyborg. In fact, Holm has a big fight on the horizon -- she takes on Aspen Ladd at UFC 235 in March. Holm shot to UFC superstardom back in 2015 when she shocked the world and beat a then-undefeated Rousey for the Women's Bantamweight title. (TMZ)

Media outlets, including Fox News, had picked up the story, in which the actor was said to have derided millennials for doing a disservice to war heroes by constantly complaining. The Daily Star did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment about the Rock's denunciation of the initial report.

He went on to say that he always encourages "empathy" and "growth" and acceptance  adding "I don't even know where that term came from," referring to "snowflake." (PageSix)

Cara Delevingne Says She Lost 50,000 Followers After Denouncing R. Kelly. After speaking her mind about R. Kelly on Instagram this week, Cara Delevingne lost thousands of social media followers. The 26-year-old actress and model took to Instagram on Thursday to share her reaction to the Lifetime docu-series, Surviving R. Kelly. "I finished the Surviving R Kelly documentary last night and I am so shocked and outraged at how long this has gone on," she said of the allegations made against R. Kelly in the docu-series. "My heart goes out to all the victims of his emotional and physical abuse and their families. This man is a predator that feeds of power and in my opinion is far worse than Harvey Weinstein and needs to be held accountable." "I am not trying to compare the two, my point is, Harvey is being investigated and R Kelly is not," Delevingne continued. "We have ourselves to blame in this situation, I knew of the allegations but failed to try and understand the severity of the situation. I still continued to listen to his music." Delevingne went on to tell her social media followers, "Stop separating art from the artist, just because he sings like an angel, doesn't mean he is one. I still want to applaud @johnlegend @keke @vincestaples @chancetherapper @jadapinkettsmith @ladygaga for continuing the conversation. I really hope that more musicians stand up against this monster #MuteRKelly #MeToo #blackgirlslivesmatter." Delevingne returned to Instagram on Friday to post a photo of herself with an amused expression on her face. "This is me realizing I lost more than 50,000 followers yesterday after posting about @rkelly Every time I say something real, something I truly believe, something others may think of as controversial, something that makes people think and ask questions, I lose followers," she captioned the post. "The followers I lose clearly don't agree with what I have to say, people that support the ideas and actions of others who are moving backwards and not forwards. In 2019, I want to be more confrontational. Confrontation IS NOT VIOLENCE btw, it's communication. Something I still struggle with." "I have always been taught to avoid confrontation at all costs, which caused me to be silent most of my life, silence causes suppression and suppression causes sickness. Not anymore!" Delevingne concluded her post. "Goodbye silence and backwards followers, hello confrontation and forward thinkers. It's going to be a loud year xxx #MuteRKelly." In response to Surviving R. Kelly, an investigation has reportedly been launched in Georgia into the allegations made against the 52-year-old singer in the docu-series. R. Kelly has consistently denied any allegations of abuse or misconduct. (Eonline)

Piers Morgan accused of faking hospital stint. Piers Morgan has been accused of faking his stay in hospital. The "Good Morning Britain" host, 53, shocked his fans on Friday after he posted a selfie from his hospital bed. But his followers have noticed Piers is still wearing clothes underneath his gown. And they weren't afraid to question him. One said: "Why has Piers Morgan got a hospital gown on with his own clothes underneath, publicity stunt??" Piers shared a picture of himself in a hospital bed without an explanation of his ailment. He has since claimed he was hospitalized with gastritis and duodenitis and he blamed vegan sausage rolls. He told fans the reason behind his stay on Twitter, adding that he was treated privately and will be back at work on Monday. Writing on the social media platform, he said: "If you really want to know, I was diagnosed with stomach gastritis and duodenitis. "I blame eating a mouthful of vegan sausage roll, Brexit & Donald Trump." Explaining his reasoning, he wrote: "Monday, 6.40am: I eat one mouthful of vegan sausage roll. "Friday, 11am: hospitalized for gastroscopy on inflamed, exploding innards. "I'm doing the maths."

Tekashi69 is ghosting his kid since getting locked up -- making no attempt to reach out to her, according to the child's mother. We got Sara Molina, 6ix9ine's baby mama, out in NYC and she says it's been radio silence since the feds took the rapper into custody, and he was indicted on racketeering charges. As we first reported, his 3-year-old daughter, Saraiyah, didn't get any Christmas presents from dear ol' dad. That might be understandable -- since he's behind bars -- but Tekashi's GF, Jade, got to unwrap a G-Wagon. She also got a Rolex for her 22nd birthday. Sooo ... not a great look for him with the fam. The fact he was all cozied up with Jade during a recent visit ... has also gotta sting for Sara. You'll recall, just last October Tekashi seemed to be embracing his role as Saraiyah's papa. A lots changed since then -- but still, Sara stopped short of trashing her baby daddy. In fact, she has some advice for him on how best to use his time in lockup. Hint: It doesn't involve handsy photo ops with Jade. (TMZ)

R. Kelly is feeling the heat in the wake of Lifetime's docuseries, because while law enforcement hasn't nailed him yet, he's been suffering panic attacks severe enough to require medical attention. Sources connected to the embattled singer tell us the panic attacks started in the days leading up to "Surviving R. Kelly" airing last week. The firestorm that erupted after it aired is affecting him, too, because we're told they've continued ... with one attack being so serious, he sought treatment at a hospital. Our sources say, more often, he's had doctors make house visits. We're told the episodes are triggered by the overwhelming backlash Kelly's getting from celebs and the general public. He's shocked how the tables have turned ... with most people now believing his accusers. We're told Kelly's aware the pendulum isn't swinging his way right now in the court of public opinion. As for his birthday celebration Wednesday night ... we're told Kelly's looking for reasons to get out of his house. Quite frankly, we're told he still believes he's done nothing wrong and doesn't want to seem like he's hiding. His dwindling number of supporters -- many of whom cheered him in the nightclub -- might think he's unfazed by the controversy. Truth is, the public outrage -- even from Kelly's own blood -- is getting to him. (TMZ)

Tom Sizemore's new year is going a lot like previous ones -- he landed in jail for a drug bust ... TMZ has learned. Law enforcement sources tell us Burbank PD pulled over the actor because his Mercedes E350 was missing a front license plate and had expired registration tags. During the stop on Jan. 5, officers ended up searching Sizemore's whip, and we're told they found drugs they believed were meth and heroin. Cops ended up arresting Sizemore and a male passenger for misdemeanor possession -- so, it clearly wasn't a huge stash of drugs, but a little's enough to end up in handcuffs. Both men posted bail and were released later in the day. The case is currently being reviewed by the city attorney's office. We've reached out to Sizemore ... so far, no word back. (TMZ)

Aretha Franklin's riches weren't getting much R-E-S-P-E-C-T, allegedly, before she died last August -- cops are on the hunt for someone who stole from her. According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, police in Michigan are conducting an investigation into the theft of Aretha's assets before she died. Law enforcement sources tell us the criminal probe involves someone inappropriately using her funds. We're told a report was filed last June, but it's unclear exactly how much money's gone missing. As you know ... Aretha's finances have been under the microscope following her death. The IRS is hounding her estate, claiming she owes more than $6.3 mil in back taxes. And, she's being dogged over legal bills. We're guessing this isn't what Aretha had in mind when she famously sang, "I'm about to give you all of my money." (TMZ)

Steve Buscemi's wife died earlier this week and a moving funeral was held at their NYC home ... TMZ has learned. We're told Jo Andres died either last Monday or over last weekend.

Pat Boone's Wife of 65 Years, Shirley, Dies: 'I've Parted with My Better Half for a Little While'. Shirley Boone, the wife of legendary 1950's singer Pat Boone, has died. She was 84. Shirley passed away peacefully on Friday morning at the pair's home in Beverly Hills after suffering complications from vasculitis, which she had contracted less than a year ago. In her final moments, Shirley was surrounded by her husband of 65 years and the couple's four daughters, Cherry, Lindy, Debby and Laury, all of whom were by her bedside singing hymns to her as she passed. Following her death, Pat, 84, told PEOPLE that he intended to meet his longtime love again someday because, as he put it, she just changed addresses. "We lived a wonderful, blessed life together for 65 years. I've parted with my better half for a little while... but we don't die, we just move on to another place, and today was moving day," Pat said of his high school sweetheart. "She's changed her address is all and moved to a different mansion that I expect to join her in one day." "I'm very confident of that," Pat added. "That took the sting out of what happened today because we know we're gonna be together again and have a whole new beginning." Pat and Shirley began their love story at 16-years-old. "We were very much in love," Pat revealed. It wasn't until they were 19 when Shirley's family planned to move away, that Pat realized it was time to ask her father -- country singing legend Red Foley -- for permission to marry Shirley. "He tearfully asked me one thing, 'Will you take care of my girl?' and I said I would," Pat explained. "And the tears rolled into his coffee because he knew he was moving and planned to take her with him, but he was willing to leave her with me." In November 1953, the pair eloped and then settled in Teaneck, New Jersey, where they welcomed their four daughters in five years. Together, they supported each other, as their lives and careers were established -- Pat was working his way through rigorous Columbia University (he graduated cum laude) and battling with Elvis for the hearts of America's teenagers, while Shirley focused on raising their four girls. They eventually moved to Beverly Hills together, where they resided for more than 50 years, watching their four children, 16 grandchildren, and ten great-grandchildren grow up. "The thing that would most fulfill her was to be a good wife, and mother, and grandmother and to create happy homes," Pat said of his wife, noting that the pair would often take "second or third honeymoons" together on ocean voyages. In addition to being by her sweetheart's side for more than half a century, Shirley was also a best-selling author, recording artist, television hostess, and humanitarian. Shirley was well-known for starting a billion-dollar Christian ministry. The couple's Christian faith was also a contributing key factor in what drove their marriage to last for so long. "We didn't have the perfect marriage, but it helps to marry a magnificent woman," Pat tells PEOPLE. "You make your commitments to God and each other, and in troubled times, you hang on to the commitment to God, and to your kids. You see the problems through, and you find you're stronger because of it." Part of her passions were also focused on giving back to others, which she first did through an organization she created called Save the Refugee. Shirley, along with ministers and other humane organizations, raised over a million dollars in a week's time, sending food and medicines over to Cambodia to assist with the hunger crisis. Their organization eventually morphed into Mercy Corps, now one of the most prominent worldwide hunger relief organizations. "[Mercy Corps] continues to grow, and all of this started from her tears and her conviction that we could do something," Pat said. "She was always ready to interrupt what she was doing and help somebody else." And that desire to give back was one of the things Pat says he will remember most about his wife. "She had an honest, deep, earnest love for people and her desire to help people as activist," he said. "She was so easy to love because she loved so easily and so naturally." (People)
