THE OTHER STUFF . . .

Prince Harry Just Made a Major Move to Protect Meghan Markle and Baby Archie's Privacy. Prince Harry isn't one to give off a false sense of security. Especially when his family is involved. The Duke of Sussex accepted damages and an apology from Splash News, which, in January, took aerial photos of his and Meghan Markle's $3 million, four-bedroom country home in Cotswold Hills, England. Speaking on the royal's behalf in a High Court, his lawyer said the published shots -- which included a direct look into their bedroom, living room and dining area -- "seriously undermined" the family's "safety and security." So much so, that the new parents, who welcomed son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor last week, no longer live at the rented estate. "The property had been chosen by the Duke for himself and his wife given the high level of privacy it afforded," the solicitor continued, "Given its position in a secluded area surrounded by private farmland away from any areas to which photographers have access." Since offering an apology, the news agency has guaranteed it will not "repeat its conduct by using any aerial means to take photographs or film footage of the Duke's private home," his lawyer concluded. Before their son's arrival, the duo moved in early April from Kensington Palace into their newly renovated, 10-bedroom Frogmore Cottage on Queen Elizabeth II's Windsor Estate. In a statement, the Palace said, "Windsor is a very special place for their royal highnesses and they are grateful that their official residence will be on the estate." While many believe the Duchess gave birth at a local hospital, several royal watchers believe she actually delivered their son at the Frogmore home. In another break from royal tradition, Meghan and Harry formally introduced baby Archie to the world from inside St. George's Hall on May 8, two days after they announced his arrival. "It's magic," the Suits alum gushed. "It's pretty amazing. I mean, I have the two best guys in the world, so I'm really happy." (Eonline)

Amy Grant's Daughter Millie -- The Inspiration for 'Baby Baby' -- Is Married! All the Details. "It is hard to believe that same 6-week-old girl who inspired the lyrics to 'Baby Baby' is now a beautiful married woman," Amy Grant tells PEOPLE exclusively. Oh baby! Amy Grant's daughter Millie Chapman, who inspired the singer to co-write the 1991 hit, "Baby Baby," is now a married woman. Chapman, whose father is Grant's first husband Gary Chapman, married Ben Long on Saturday, April 27 in Nashville. "It is hard to believe that same 6-week-old girl who inspired the lyrics to 'Baby Baby' is now a beautiful married woman," Grant tells PEOPLE. "Her life has given us a lot of reasons to dance and celebrate through the years!" Chapman, 29, and Long, 30, who met two and a half years ago on a dating app, wed at Immanuel Baptist Church, then celebrated their reception in the backyard of the home Grant shares with country singer Vince Gill, her husband of 19 years. "We mainly chose my mom's backyard because it has always been a place I feel comfortable," says Chapman. "We wanted to celebrate it somewhere we felt at home." As for the decor? "We only had two rules," Chapman -- who planned the wedding with Dori Waller of The Social Office -- tells PEOPLE. "No pastels and no monograms! We wanted to create a beautiful reception that still felt like a wedding reception at home. The sailcloth tent provided by Chattanooga Tent was adorned with crystal chandeliers and overlooked the edge of our garden which had hanging votives and furniture for guests to enjoy a quiet moment in the beautiful setting." Chapman's bouquet and all the florals for the wedding and reception had a personal touch -- they were by Phyllis Mayfield of Mayfield Events and Design, who also happened to be the bride's childhood nanny. Chapman's bridesmaids included her sisters, a cousin, and longtime pal Kathryn Dudley, to whom she previously donated a kidney. And when it came to the ceremony, Chapman, who wore a lace Ines Di Santo gown with a cathedral length Toni Federici veil, admits there were a few tears. "Ben cried, but we always knew he was going to," says Chapman. "As I got closer, his face just sort of melted!" Following the exchange of vows, Grant and Gill welcomed the 230 guests before the newlyweds took their first spin on the dance floor to the "Stand by Me," sung by the bride's sister, Corrina Gill. Then came the live band, Az IzZ who "did an amazing job of getting our guests on the dance floor," says Chapman. Later, Grant told guests that Chapman was a picky eater as a child -- so dinner was a nod to her childhood favorites. Kristen Winston Catering incorporated family recipes liked mini BLTs, pulled pork on griddle corn cakes and mini grilled cheese. Dinner included filet of beef, lemon herb chicken breast and ricotta stuffed ravioli. The cake, created by Leland Riggan of Dessert Designs, featured two of the couple's favorite flavors: sour cream pound cake and chocolate truffle. Overall, says Chapman, "it was great food, lots of dancing and a fun warm environment for our friends and family." (People)

Selena Gomez hid secret messages in her newest Puma collection. Selena Gomez must be learning from BFF Taylor Swift. The singer, 26, released her second collection with Puma on Wednesday and revealed that there are some messages for diehard fans hidden in the clothes. There are the coordinates and names of places that are important to Gomez, including Grand Prairie, Texas (her hometown), Los Angeles, New York and Herzogenaurach, Germany, where Puma HQ is located. She has also added semicolons, a nod to the wrist tattoo she got after producing "13 Reasons Why" on Netflix, meant to represent choosing to begin a new life chapter instead of ending it. "I've put everything from some of my tattoos, my birthdate, the coordinates of my hometown -- even working with lupus and having an artist create a box for a shoe that I release where some of the proceeds are able to go to that. I try to find original ways of doing it," she told Glamour magazine. "Every single thing that I do in my career and my life, I just feel so grateful. So, most of the time, I try to put a little piece of me in [it]." This isn't the first time that the "Taki Taki" singer has hidden personal Easter eggs and inspiring quotes in clothing designs. She wrote, "Not perfect, Always me" in some of the pieces of her line for Coach and had her favorite Bible verse stitched into the dress and matching handbag she wore to the "Heavenly Bodies"-themed 2018 Met Gala. Her first collection with Puma also included sports bras with the message "Strong inside and out." As for her personal fashion sense, Gomez says she likes to keep things "simple" and believes that "half of fashion is confidence." "I go through periods where I'm absolutely in love with fashion, and then I go through periods where I'm like, 'I don't know what to wear, I don't know what's cool.' And I'm going to just do my own thing," she said, adding that the one trend she's obsessed with is barrettes. Prices for the second Puma collection, which includes two new sneakers as well as travel-ready athleisure, range from $12 for socks to $120 for footwear while apparel ranges from $35 to $80.

Michael Jackson's Sons Blanket and Prince Launch New YouTube Series. Fans are about to see a lot more of Prince Jackson and Blanket Jackson. Michael Jackson's eldest son took to Instagram on Wednesday to announce the launch of their brand-new YouTube channel. The brothers are reviewing movies in their new series along with their cousin Taj Jackson. "We are very excited to announce that we are starting a movie review channel," Prince wrote on Instagram. "Right now you can go see our first-ever video on my YouTube channel (link in bio). We know that this is a very rough first video but we want to take you on the journey with us as we improve and develop the show. As usual all input is welcome here or in the YouTube comments. Expect more to come y'all." For their first video, the family members tackled the box office hit Avengers: Endgame with special guest James Sutherland. From the Hulk's and Black Widow's roles to their favorite scenes, the panelists covered it all over a few slices of pizza. It seemed like Blanket was a fan of the earlier Marvel movies, too -- noting he saw Avengers: Infinity War about 11 times. Prince also shared a photo about the movie back in April. It looked like the critics received support from their famous family members, as well. "I couldn't be any prouder of these guys," TJ Jackson tweeted. "My bro and cousins... do your thang guys! BTW, I want to be your family movie correspondent." This wasn't the first-time fans got a glimpse into their world. Earlier this week, Prince shared pictures of his brother attending his graduation.

Khloe Kardashian says she tries to keep the peace around her baby daddy, Tristan Thompson, for the sake of their kid ... who she believes can sense when something's amiss. The youngest Kardashian dished with Disso Queen Laura Wasser on her hit podcast, 'Divorce Sucks!' which drops Monday. Khloe and Tristan weren't married, but they share a child together ... and definitely went through a nasty breakup that might as well have been a divorce. Khloe tells Laura she monitors the energy she puts out around baby True, who -- at only 13 months old -- can still pick up on bad vibes ... according to her mom. That's why Khloe says she didn't have an issue with Tristan coming to True's first birthday party last month -- where she says they were civil with each other and made it work. More importantly, Khloe says she wants to afford her daughter the same types of experiences and memories she had growing up ... and Daddy's gotta be a part of that. Bottom line for Khloe ... she'll do what it takes for her daughter, and that includes putting on a happy face when needed. Anything for mommy's little girl, it seems!!! You can catch Laura's full episode with Khloe Monday on PodcastOne and Apple Podcasts. (TMZ)

'Hated' Constance Wu is an even bigger diva than J.Lo. Constance Wu has garnered a reputation of being so difficult, she's being dubbed "the most hated person" on her ABC show and is upstaging Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B in the diva department on their new movie "Hustlers." "Crazy Rich Asians" star Wu tweeted, "Fucking hell" Friday when her ABC sitcom "Fresh Off the Boat" was picked up for a sixth season -- later explaining she was upset because she had a role lined up that she'll have to pass on. Wu's team is now pleading with her to "find some humility," we're told. The "FOTB" source said her Twitter snit fit was apt: "Constance is the most hated person on set. She is rude to everybody, but most of all the crew." An insider from the set of "Hustlers" said that while the actresses get along well, behind the scenes Wu is a way bigger diva than her more famous co-stars J.Lo and Cardi. Wu "is a pain in the fucking ass. She just won't agree to do anything," the source said. "She refuses to do interviews, she won't have visitors on her sets. It's like a cliche. She is very talented -- but all signs are pointing to a difficult diva." A third insider who worked with Wu added, "She's a total piece of work. She thinks it's OK to treat people badly and say out loud whatever comes to her. She's the new Katherine Heigl, and if she's not careful, her movie career will go in the same direction -- downhill." Yet another source on the set of "Crazy Rich Asians" added that Wu "was standoffish and arrived to talk to reporters in a separate van from the cast, who came together. It was clear they didn't socialize .?.?. She was icy cold, leaving it to Henry Golding to charm everyone." At a screening last summer, Wu rolled her eyes when co-star Michelle Yeoh spoke. Wu's reps didn't comment, but her team is begging her to be gracious, we're told. After Jimmy Kimmel slammed her at the upfronts ("Only on ABC is getting your show picked up the worst thing that can happen to you"), an insider said "she was told to find some humility. She was humiliated at the upfronts; everyone laughed at her." (PageSix)

"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" are heading to New York. Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Dolores Catania, Jennifer Aydin, Margaret Josephs and Jackie Goldschneider are headed to the Hamptons for another cast trip, insiders told Page Six on Wednesday. It's unclear what the nature of the trip will be, but the last time the ladies headed to Long Island it ended up in a blowout between Josephs and Danielle Staub at Steven Dann's store in Great Neck. We're told Staub will not be on this excursion. The "Housewives" previously flew to Jamaica to celebrate Aydin's 40th birthday in April. (Page Six)

Abby Lee Miller Has Advice for Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman Amid College Admissions Scandal. Open to a conversation. Abby Lee Miller served time in federal prison for bankruptcy fraud from May 2017 to March 2018, and now the Dance Moms alum wants to help Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman, who are both facing jail time for their alleged involvement in a nationwide college admissions scandal. "I have a lot of advice for them and I would love to talk to them face-to-face," Miller, 52, reveals exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly. They shouldn't hire one of those [prison] consultants. My attorneys in Pittsburgh hired one and Lifetime hired another one. Both were completely wrong on everything." The choreographer also recalls that she became friends with "lovely and wonderful" women while she was behind bars. She gushes, "[They were] some of the most intelligent, intuitive, wonderful people that I'll ever meet." Miller previously offered to be the actresses' "consultant" during their legal battle. "My advice would be, 'Take a deep breath and if you need a consultant, I'm your girl,'" she told Inside Edition in April. The Fuller House star, 54, and the Desperate Housewives alum, 56, were arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services fraud in March. The following month, Huffman agreed to plead guilty to the charges, and she officially entered her plea on Monday, May 13. According to court documents, the Cake actress allegedly made "a purported charitable contribution of $15,000 ... to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of her eldest daughter [Sofia]." Prosecutors will recommend that Huffman sentence and pay $20,000, according to a press release. Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, for their parts, chose not to accept a plea deal that would require a minimum of two years in prison, and opted to plead not guilty. Shortly after they rejected the plea, they were hit with additional charges of money laundering conspiracy. The duo -- who wed in 1997 and share daughters Bella, 20, and Olivia Jade, 19 -- allegedly "agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team -- despite the fact that they did not participate in crew -- thereby facilitating their admission to USC."

Attorney Lisa Bloom drops Blac Chyna as a client amid Kardashian-Jenner lawsuit. Lisa Bloom is responding to Blac Chyna's claims that she's trying to take a cut of any earnings she may win from her lawsuit against the Kardashians. Bloom, who is no longer representing Chyna, filed a lien against Chyna for failing to pay for legal work she and her firm did for her in her ongoing lawsuit against Rob Kardashian and his family, The Blast reported. In response to the lien filing, Chyna submitted legal documents claiming she and Bloom never had a written agreement and requested the judge deny Bloom's attempt to get any piece of the judgment she wins against Kardashian or his family. She also claimed The Bloom Firm's actions constituted "professional misconduct" and because Bloom dropped her as a client she waives her right to attorney fees. Bloom, however, told Page Six that her "perfect bar record" would indicate otherwise. "I'm proud of my perfect bar record after 33 years as an attorney. We fought hard for Blac Chyna for nearly two years," she said. "Unfortunately, we had to withdraw for reasons we cannot disclose. We continue to believe in her case and wish her the best." Chyna sued Rob, Khloe Kardashian, Kris Jenner and Kylie Jenner for allegedly interfering with her and Rob's reality series, "Rob & Chyna," and causing producers and E! to cancel the show, which allegedly caused her substantial damages. Bloom also represented Chyna after Rob posted revenge porn following their split. (PageSix)

'Love and Hip Hop' star Safaree Samuels knows which hill he wants to die on -- marching and screaming for his right to wear luxurious furs ... animal abuse be damned. Safaree, rocking a flowing fur coat of course, was shouting at the top of his lungs in front of NY's City Hall on Wednesday to protest a proposed ban on fur sales in Gotham. As you'd imagine, things got very heated ... with Safaree's pro-fur supporters clashing -- at least verbally -- with a slew of anti-fur protesters. He marched and shouted, "Leave us alone! Stop picking on us. Our fur, our right!! Our choice, our right!!" Safaree wasn't alone, either ... he was reportedly joined by about 150 people distressed over the possible fur ban. But, when anti-fur protesters reminded him of the rampant animal abuse behind the fur industry, Safaree's retort was far from educated. He said, "I didn't do it. Go to China with that. This is America." Safaree's also making his protest about race ... claiming the fur sales ban is being done purely to target the black community. When he barked that people should be more concerned with police brutality against African Americans, the crowd rage went through the roof and Safaree unleashed a string of obscenities. Anti-fur protesters followed him all the way to his waiting SUV which was flanked by some huge bodyguards. Safaree's weakest argument might be that NYC is a fashion mecca, and therefore ... MUST have fur. Fact is, fur farming is already banned or very tightly regulated in several European countries, including the UK ... home to London, another fashion capital. Just sayin' ... (TMZ)
