How Travis Scott Is Making Kylie Jenner Feel ''More Confident'' in Their Relationship. Travis Scott is doing everything in his power to earn back Kylie Jenner's trust. In recent days, reports emerged that the makeup mogul and rapper got in a heated argument over rumors of infidelity on Travis' part. The "Sicko Mode" performer has strongly denied all accusations of cheating or fighting and, a source tells E! News, he is going above and beyond to prove his loyalty to the Kylie Cosmetics founder. "He has been bending over backwards to prove his love and erase any doubts she has," the source shares. "For Travis to cancel a show and then delete his Instagram meant a lot to Kylie." And it appears his actions are paying off since the insider shares that they are still together, despite the drama. The source adds, "The way Travis has reacted definitely helped Kylie feel a little better and more confident." While the potential of a cheating scandal has definitely imposed unnecessary stress, the source says, "Kylie has had a very difficult and emotional last few weeks . . . She just doesn't know who she can trust." Moreover, Travis' tour across the country appears to be putting a strain on their relationship. "Having Travis on the road is not easy. She is much happier when he is around and they are all together," the source explains. News of his grand gestures explain why the star deleted his Instagram just two days after allegedly getting in a fight with Jenner. Fans were confused and surprised to find that the rapper's social media account was deleted in the midst of his jam packed tour, which he frequently posts about on the site. If this drama has been bothering Kylie, then it doesn't show. The 21-year-old celebrated her assistant Victoria Villarroel's birthday at Skateland in Northridge, Calif. on Monday night. She and her friends were moving and grooving to the beat as if they had no cares in the world. (Eonline)

The 21-year-old To All the Boys I've Loved Before actress gets candid about her relationship with food and the pressure to maintain a certain shape in her cover story for Elle Canada's April issue. "I look at my friends, and I'm like, 'You're f--king gorgeous.' But they feel like they're fat and ugly," Condor tells Elle. "I don't know how this happened, that women feel like they need to apologize [for their physical imperfections]." When asked if she feels that same pressure, Condor replies, "I mean, take away the word 'actor' and just keep 21-year-old: It's hard." Condor, who was a contemporary dancer and classically trained ballerina before getting her start in acting, goes on to talk about the pressure dancers feel when it comes to their bodies. "You're kind of the first person I've talked to about this, but I know what it's like to have an eating disorder and body dysmorphia -- and also what it's like to be a friend to someone who has that," Condor shares with Elle. "I think it's time to give people comfort. You have to eat. You have to stop thinking that a certain body shape is ideal, because it's not." Condor tells the magazine that she wants to celebrate her relationship with food, "That's why I literally post about every meal I eat."

Bar Wrestling announced on Twitter that Jack Perry, who goes by the moniker Jungle Boy, "will no longer be wrestling at our March 13th show." The organization added, "Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family at this time." Luke Perry died on Monday due to complications from a stroke that he had on Feb. 27. E! News learned that the 52-year-old was surrounded by his kids Jack and Sophie as well as his fiancee Wendy Madison Bauer, ex-wife Minnie Sharp, mother Ann Bennett, step-father Steve Bennett, brother Tom Perry, sister Amy Coder and other loved ones at the time of his death. The actor's rep told E! News in a statement on Monday, "The family appreciates the outpouring of support and prayers that have been extended to Luke from around the world, and respectfully request privacy in this time of great mourning." His Riverdale and Beverly Hills, 90210 co-stars as well as fellow celebrities took to Twitter on Monday to praise and honor the actor. Even those who met him briefly shared anecdotes about the actor and his influence on them. Tom Hanks son Colin Hanks, for instance, wrote a story on Instagram that explained a time they were on a plane together and Luke quieted down kids who had been screaming for hours on end. "Guy seemed like a true gent. Gone way too damn soon," Hanks wrote. CW, the network that airs Riverdale, said in a statement on Monday, "We are deeply saddened to learn today about the passing of Luke Perry. A beloved member of the Riverdale, Warner Bros. and CW family, Luke was everything you would hope he would be: an incredibly caring, consummate professional with a giant heart, and a true friend to all. A father figure and mentor to the show's young cast, Luke was incredibly generous, and he infused the set with love and kindness. Our thoughts are with Luke's family during this most difficult time." Lili Reinhart, who plays Betty Cooper on the show, wrote on Twitter, "I'm finding it hard to grasp that he will no longer be around to give long hugs and share his wisdom and kindness with all of us. I'm thinking of his family. His children. I pray for them to heal and find peace in this devastating loss." On Tuesday, Sophie Perry made her first statement on social media about her dad's death. She posted a photo of the two of them smiling and standing on the grass with horses in the background. "A lot has happened in this past week for me. Everything is happening so fast. I made it back from Malawi just in time to be here with my family, And, in the past 24 hours I have received an overwhelming amount of love and support," she wrote. "I cannot individually respond to the hundreds of beautiful and heartfelt messages, but I see them, and appreciate you all for sending positivity to my family and I." Sophie continued, "I'm not really sure what to say or do in this situation, it's something you aren't ever given a lesson on how to handle, especially when it's all happening in the public eye. So, bear with me and know that I am grateful for all the love. Just, being grateful quietly." Our thoughts go out to Perry's family at this difficult time. (Eonline)

Demi Lovato and Henry Levy Break Up. It's over between Demi Lovato and Henry Levy. The 26-year-old pop star and the 27-year-old fashion designer have split, E! News has learned. Lovato and Levy, founder of clothing company Enfants Riches Deprime, who is also known as Henri Alexander, had first sparked romance rumors after they were spotted on a sushi date in Beverly Hills in November, more than three months after the singer was hospitalized following a drug overdose. She then spent three months in rehab. A source told E! News that Lovato "recently went away for a few weeks to a center for additional treatment" and is "doing well and continues to focus on her wellness and sobriety." "Demi and Henry split right after she entered treatment for the second time," another source said. "She entered treatment for her mental health issues and not because she relapsed. Demi knows she will be battling her struggles for a very long time and wants to take precautionary measures when she feels the need to check in on her health. She never wants to get to a place where she was last year when she relapsed. Demi and Henry decided to split because none of her family members approved of her getting into a relationship so quickly and wanted her to focus on herself and her health. Demi felt distracted and overwhelmed and wanted to take a breather and truly get healthy." The insider added that Lovato has been back in Los Angeles and has been spending a lot of time at her mom's house, has been going to the gym regularly and is focusing on herself. "She is now out and back at home where she's continuing therapy, workouts and making new music," the first source said. "She is in a good place and happy. She is surrounding herself with the most positive friends and influences. She is perfectly fine with cutting anyone out of her life that doesn't support her sobriety 100 percent. She takes this extremely seriously and is committed all the way." A third source added that despite past reports, Levy was never Lovato's sober companion. In December, a month after they were first seen together, Lovato and Levy were spotted out together again, and were photographed kissing on the lips outside another sushi restaurant, in Malibu. They were also hands while out on a nighttime stroll in Beverly Hills. Late that month, Levy made their romance Instagram official -- Lovato fan accounts captured a video allegedly uploaded onto his private Instagram Story, which showed him and the singer kissing and smiling. During the New Year's holiday, Lovato and Levy were photographed on vacation in the resort town of Aspen, Colorado. On Valentine's Day, Levi posted on Instagram, "Happy Valentine's Day to this beautiful soul @DDLovato. I love you to the moon and back." (Eonline)

Paris Jackson isn't swayed by the allegations levied against her father in "Leaving Neverland" -- and firmly believes Michael Jackson was not a child molester. Sources close to Paris tell TMZ ... she hasn't seen the explosive new documentary, and contrary to reports, she was not offered the chance to see it before it premiered at Sundance. We're also told she's not the least bit torn or conflicted about its content -- Wade Robson and James Safechuck's graphic description of their alleged molestation at Jackson's hands. Reaction to the project has been intense and passionate -- on both sides -- with even the almost universally beloved Oprah catching flak for her interview with the accusers. The Jackson family as a whole has been outspoken about their anger over the documentary -- and Tito's son, Taj Jackson, told us he thinks Robson's making it all up for revenge. Interestingly, Paris' mom, Debbie Rowe, is also avoiding it. Our sources say she doesn't see a point in watching 'Neverland' because Michael's been dead for years. Fair to say, Michael's family is taking a united stance. (TMZ)

Young Dolph's got a lesson for ya in cutting losses and counting blessings -- 'cause he actually has some well-wishes for the punks who jacked a small fortune from his car. The Memphis MC told us why he's isn't mad about the nearly $500k worth of goods he lost in the smash-and-grab heist last week. We saw him at LAX, and he couldn't have been more chill ... telling us, he's simply "too blessed and highly favored" to give a damn about material stuff. Considering how much he lost, we wouldn't blame him if he was pissed -- but he genuinely seems at peace with it. As we reported ... burglars smashed a window on his G-Wagon Friday while Dolph was in a restaurant. They made off with cash, electronics and jewelry ... including a $230k watch. Dolph's already hatched a plan to rebound ... and it involves more spending. He also has a message for the suspects who are still at-large -- and it's a nice one!!! (TMZ)

"School of Rock" star Joey Gaydos Jr.'s alleged crime spree hit close to home, quite literally, because cops say he even stole from his father. TMZ broke the story, Joey -- who played lead guitarist Zack in Jack Black's classic flick -- was busted 4 times in the last 5 weeks for stealing guitars and amplifiers, and he's facing felonies for larceny and grand theft. But, we've now learned 2 amps he allegedly jacked belonged to his pops. According to the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office ... Joey's father called the police to report them missing and named his son as the perp. Cops say Joey's father told them his kid had stolen from him in the past. He never reported it until now because he thinks Joey's now stealing to support an addiction to heroin. According to cops ... Joey fessed up to stealing and pawning the amps worth $2,100 -- and also told them he wanted to make amends and get treatment. As we reported . . . cops released surveillance footage allegedly showing Joey walk out of a store with a Buddy Guy Fender Stratocaster. He was nabbed 4 days later when he allegedly tried to hit another store. (TMZ)

TMZ Sports has obtained footage of Adam "Pacman" Jones being arrested at an Indiana casino -- footage the NFL star believes will prove officials overreacted that day. The footage was shot by Pacman's wife around 3 AM on Feb. 27 -- after he had been placed in handcuffs at the Rising Star Casino Resort. Authorities accused Pacman of cheating at a table game -- but in the footage, you can see the NFL star adamantly denying the allegations ... and demanding cops let him go. "Who said I was cheating?" Jones says ... "Let the handcuffs go!" The footage appears to be shot in the bowels of the casino after Jones had been removed from the gaming area. There are two officers attempting to walk him to another section in the building. As we previously reported, authorities say Jones was adding chips to his stack after he knew the outcomes of the games ... which is obviously illegal. Officials say the former Cincinnati Bengals star got aggressive -- cussing out law enforcement and threatening to kill one of the responding law enforcement agents. Jones believes the video will show he was NOT out of control but rather restrained considering he was being taken into custody in front of his wife and other people who recognized him. During the video, you can hear Pacman's wife telling police that he had spent $20,000 at the casino that night -- and there's no reason he would have to cheat. She can also be heard saying, "He didn't put his hands on nobody." Both Pacman and his wife repeatedly tell cops they can say whatever they want because of "freedom of speech." At one point during the incident, Pacman turns to one of the arresting officers and calls him a "bitch ass n***a." We spoke with Pacman's agent, Peter Schaffer, who tells us, "Adam was very controlled. We think the authorities overreacted, they love the attention ... Adam showed great restraint." Pacman was eventually taken to a nearby station where he was booked. He's since been hit with 8 criminal charges stemming from the incident ... though we've now learned he's pled not guilty and plans to fight the case. (TMZ)

Kelly is breaking his silence a week after being charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse in Illinois' Cook County. Although, it's important to note the singer's lawyer entered a not guilty plea on his behalf, regarding the 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. The disgraced singer sits down with Gayle King in his first interview since the charges and Lifetime's Surviving R. Kelly docu-series. In the short teaser clip CBS Evening News shares on Twitter, the rapper breaks down in tears, insisting the claims made against him are "not true." In the first clip, King brings up the rapper's cases that were not acquitted. She says, "Women have come forward and said, 'R. Kelly had sex with me when I was under the age of 18. R. Kelly was abusive to me, emotionally, physically and verbally. R. Kelly took me into a black room where unspeakable things happened.' This is what they're saying about you, these are old rumors." The 52-year-old star responds, "Not true, not true. Whether they're old rumors, new rumors, future rumors, not true." In the same video, CBS releases another moment from the interview where King brings up a claim made by R. Kelly's alleged victims. "Correct me if I'm wrong, you've never held anybody against their will," she asks. "I don't need to," the 52-year-old rapper exclaims. "Why would I? How stupid would it be for R. Kelly, with all I have been through in my way, way past to hold somebody, let alone 4, 5, 6, 50, you said, how stupid would I be to do that? That's stupid guys!" Speaking directly to camera, he continues, "That's stupid! Use your common sense. Forget how you feel about me. Hate me if you want to, love me if you want, but just use your common sense. How stupid would it be for me, with my crazy past and what I've been through..." He adds, "Oh, right now I just think I need to be a monster and hold girls against their will, chain them up in my basement and don't let them eat, don't let them out, unless they need some shoes down the street from their uncle. Stop it." "Y'all quit playing. Quit playing! I didn't do this stuff," he says, raising his voice and breaking down into tears. "This is not me! I'm fighting for my f-----g life!" NEW: R&B singer R. Kelly, charged with aggravated sexual abuse, angrily denied the accusations in a new interview with @GayleKing, insisting the claims are "rumors" & "not true."

Kristoff St/ John Buried Next to Son After His Dad's Emotional Eulogy: 'I Love You, Man'. Friends and family gathered Monday at the Calvary Community Church in Westlake, California, to celebrate the life of Kristoff St. John. The actor was found dead Feb. 3 in his home at the age of 52. St. John became a child star with a shining debut in the series Happy Days. He continued to act in television shows throughout his life, most notably in the long-running soap opera The Young and the Restless for nearly three decades. Many costars from the show attended the funeral to pay their respects, including Melody Thomas Scott, Hunter King and Jason Thompson. One woman who acted with him on the CBS show 20 years ago and did not wish to be named told PEOPLE, "I doubt there will be anyone missing from the show today; he was so loved. You won't meet anyone with an unkind word to say about him." Although St. John's fiancee Kseniya Mikhaleva was unable to attend due to visa issues, many family members were present. His father, Christopher, gave the eulogy, and was accompanied by St. John's daughter, Lola, and his cousin on stage. He began, "My baby boy Kristoff, I never planned to be standing here on this day. Honestly, I always thought that Kristoff would be standing here to talk about me." He elaborated on their close relationship: "When Kristoff was born I held him in my arms, just like this, and he was the most remarkable little baby I'd ever seen. He taught me how to be a better boy, because he knew things about me that I didn't even realize. Well, we started growing up together, me and Kristoff, and we had the greatest time. He taught me how to laugh and play. We did everything together." With the words, "Kristoff, I love you, man, with all my heart and soul, my baby boy," he paused, holding back tears. Stepping back to hug his nephew, he thanked the audience and embraced his granddaughter. They all walked off stage together. The moment was painfully reminiscent of St. John mourning his own son, Julian, four years ago, and the shadow that cast upon the star's life was referred to several times throughout the service. But Kristoff's life was also full of happiness, and this too was a full display. A touching slideshow video took the congregation through his colorful life: There were photos of him jumping on the beach, videos of him howling in the car with his dogs, and snaps of that cheeky gap-toothed grin from his child-star days. There he was as a young father, holding his baby high in his arms, and there again, no less proud, holding up an Emmy. One characteristically hilarious selfie video of him singing and dancing in the car (and trying to get his daughter and dog to join in) made the whole audience laugh through their tears. At the end, the whole congregation stood and clapped. Many cheered. After the sermon, his daughters led the family out, the song 'Somewhere over the rainbow' playing behind them. St. John was buried beside Julian, who died by suicide following a lifelong battle with mental illness. St. John is also survived by daughter Paris (with ex-wife Mia St John, also Julian's mother), and daughter Lola (with ex-wife Allana Nadal). (People)
