Christina Perri Is "Completely Heartbroken" After Suffering Miscarriage. Christina Perri is sharing a very personal message with fans. The "A Thousand Years" singer took to social media on Friday to tell her followers that she has suffered a miscarriage. In her message, the 33-year-old star told her fans that she and husband Paul Costabile are "heartbroken" over their devastating loss. "Today I had a miscarriage," Perri began her message. "Baby was 11 weeks old." "We are shocked & completely heartbroken," the artist continued. "We were only 1 week away from sharing the news so I feel like it's also important to share this news too. I want to continue to help change the story & stigma around miscarriage, secrecy and shame." Perri went on to say that she's "so sad" but noted that she's "not ashamed." "I am ever reminded how amazing and powerful women are at making life and at healing," Perri said. "To all the mothers who have been here and who will be here, I see you and I love you." "I am so sad but not discouraged," Perri told her fans. "When the time feels right we will try again, but today, we mourn our little life lost [broken heart emoji]." Perri and Costabile wed in New York City in Dec. 2017, exactly four years after their first meeting. A month after their nuptials, the couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Carmella Stanley Costabile. "The greatest gift we've ever known!!! Welcome to the world Carmella Stanley Costabile born today," Costabile wrote on Instagram in Jan. 2018. "Mom and our little principessa are doing great. Dad can't stop crying!" Carmella will turn 2 in just a few days. Our thoughts are with the couple during this heartbreaking time. (Eonline)

What's in a name? Cameron Diaz and hubby Benji Madden surprised fans when they announced the birth of their daughter, Raddix Madden, on January 3 in a statement posted to both of their Instagram accounts. The couple wrote, "We are so happy, blessed and grateful to begin this decade by announcing the birth of our daughter ... She has instantly captured our hearts and completed our family ... She is really, really cute!! Some would even say RAD." Now, a source exclusively reveals to Us Weekly that the Charlie's Angels star, 47, and Good Charlotte frontman, 40, had a special inspiration behind their daughter's unique moniker. Friends of the couple believe the name "Raddix" is a combination of "rad" (one of their favorite words) and a translation of "new beginning" -- a fitting sentiment after their challenging journey to parenthood, the source tells Us. "It's so like Cam and Benji to pick a quirky yet meaningful name," and "they agree it suits her perfectly." After tying the knot in 2015, the couple spent years trying to start a family before finally welcoming the baby girl via surrogate on December 30. The insider adds: "They went through so much to get to this point. Cameron feels like this baby is truly a miracle." According to the source, the musician's brother, Joel Madden, and wife Nicole Richie are "thrilled" to see the couple in such a "wonderful place." "Nicole and Joel have been so great, and they've offered to help in any way they can, both now and moving forward," the source tells Us. "They're going to be a huge part of Raddix's life -- the plan is to really integrate the two families so all the kids can grow up together and be one big, happy family." As the new parents endure sleepless nights and round-the-clock feedings, they can't stop marveling at their precious baby girl. "They just can't believe their little miracle is finally here," says the insider. "They've spent the last five years hoping for this, and it surpassed all of their expectations." (US Weekly)

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel Spotted Together for the First Time Since Co-Star Scandal. Back together again! In late November of last year, Justin Timberlake was spotted getting a little cozy with his co-star Alisha Wainwright after a night out with some of the cast of their upcoming film Palmer. The photos showed the two holding hands and engaging in some subtle touching. Justin at first ignored the media storm at first, but later took to Instagram to offer a public apology to his wife Jessica Biel. Since the events took place, Justin has remained very low-key and the husband and wife pair hasn't been spotted out together in a while. However, Justin did recently take to his wife's Instagram to share his love in the comments section. Now, The Sun has obtained photos and video of Justin and Jessica enjoying a lovely evening together. The two dined out at the Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles, and The Sun reports that they were seen laughing and enjoying their meal together, seeming very in love and at ease. Justin and Jessica have been on the road to forgiveness and moving past his lapse in judgment since the scandal broke. "He feels terrible that this happened and for putting Jessica through the public scrutiny," a source previously revealed to E! News. "He knows she doesn't deserve any of this and that he messed up." Justin himself fessed up to his mistake and promised it would never happen again. "A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgement - but let me be clear - nothing happened between me and my costar," he shared in his statement on his Instagram. "I drank way too much that night and I regret my behavior. I should have known better. This is not the example I want to set for my son. I apologize to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation, and I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be. This was not that. I am incredibly proud to be working on Palmer. Looking forward to continuing to make this movie and excited for people to see it." (Eonline)

Meghan Markle Signs Deal With Disney Just Days After Royal Family Exit: Report. Meghan Markle already has new projects in the works. The Duchess of Sussex has reportedly signed a deal with Disney on an "unspecified project in return for a donation to an elephant charity," Deadline reported. The news of this partnership with Disney to help the organization Elephants Without Borders comes only days after Markle and her husband Prince Harry announced they were taking a step back from royal duties. However, according to the publication, the deal was "signed before the recent uproar over Markle and husband Prince Harry's plans to disengage from the Royal Family and pursue other opportunities." The Times of London was the first to report about Markle's deal with Disney. Despite the timing, the former Suits actress's latest partnership might be a glimpse into what she and Prince Harry have in the works now that they'll be spending less time with the Royal Family and dividing their time between North America and the U.K. Further, Deadline also reports that the couple and Disney had a "pre-existing relationship" after the company "gave them a watercolor Winnie-the-Pooh animation to celebrate their child Archie's birth." As fans recall, the two also attended the premiere of Disney's The Lion King remake in July 2019. And the premiere was held in support of African Parks, which is an organization that Prince Harry supports. As far as the project itself goes, TODAY cites that Markle has reportedly "already completed the voice-over work prior to the couple's Christmas holiday in Canada." Markle's latest deal points to the new chapter of their lives and the more progressive route the couple is taking as they take a step back from royal duties and use their influence to shed light on other projects and issues they're passionate about. "After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution," the couple shared on Instagram announcing their departure earlier this week. "We intend to step back as 'senior' members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment." It has also been reported that the couple never informed Buckingham Palace or Prince William and Kate Middleton of their decision. According to BBC News, a palace spokeswoman said their choice to move forward with their plans without consulting Queen Elizabeth II has the Royal Family feeling "disappointed." But despite the headlines, the couple is seemingly moving forward with this next chapter in their lives. E! News has reached out to Disney for comment. (Eonline)

DJ Qualls Comes Out as Gay Onstage at Comedy Show. DJ Qualls has come out publicly as gay and says he is tired of worrying what people think of him or how his sexuality could affect his acting career. The 41-year-old Road Trip, Supernatural and The Man in the High Castle actor made his comments on Twitter on Friday night, just after announcing the news onstage at his friend and former co-star Jim Jeffries' standup comedy show at the Balboa Theater in San Diego. "It is 11:20pm. I just came out on stage at a @jimjefferies show in San Diego," he tweeted. "Yep, I'm gay. Been gay this whole time. Tired of worrying about what people would think of me. Tired of worrying about what it would do to my career." "Well done my friend, very proud of you," replied French actor Sebastian Roche, who also starred in Supernatural and The Man in the High Castle. "Proud of you, my friend. Love you, man," tweeted Supernatural and Veronica Mars alum Adam Rose. Qualls, a native of Tennessee, starred in Australian-born Jeffries' FX comedy series Legit between 2013 and 2014, and also made an appearance on Comedy Central's The Jim Jeffries Show in 2018. Qualls played a gay character on Amazon's The Man in the High Castle, which depicts a world in which Nazi Germany won World War II and conquered most of the United States to annex it to the Third Reich. The star began his onscreen acting career in 1998 but rose to fame as a breakout star of the 2000 cult comedy film Road Trip. He later made appearances on Lost, Monk, Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Breaking Bad. In addition to Legit, Supernatural and The Man in the High Castle, he had recurring and regular roles on My Name Is Earl, Memphis Beat, Perception, Fargo, and Syfy's Z Nation. Qualls has never spoken publicly about neither his sexuality nor his love life. In 2012, he tweeted, "Disagree w/the Pope saying gay marriage is a threat to world peace & gender identity but agree w/the gown he wore while saying it. #Flawless." (Eonline)

Mark Curry put Steve Harvey on blast for allegedly jacking his jokes and using them on his shows -- twice -- and video evidence shows ... Mark has a case. Curry claims Harvey stole his Halloween material but hasn't gotten into specifics. This resulted in Steve clapping back at Mark ... saying the comedian can't even come up with an example of what he's barking about. TMZ's done some digging, though ... and it seems Curry's 1999 stand-up special on "Comedy Central Presents" contains the Halloween bit Harvey allegedly lifted for his talk show. You can watch online for yourself ... Mark cracks a joke about being poor growing up, and how his mom dressed him and his siblings up in boxes for Halloween "costumes." The punchline involves UPS. Now, check out Steve's joke, which aired on his eponymous daytime talk show in 2015. It involves being poor growing up, and how his dad dressed him up in a box for a Halloween "costume." The punchline varies slightly but still involves UPS. Hmmmmmmm ... When Curry spoke to us, he made a point to say that not only did Harvey steal his material ... but he didn't even do it right. Once again, the video evidence seems to support his claim. Mark also told us he confronted Steve about the alleged joke theft, but then Steve went and did it again on his NBC kids show, "Little Big Shots." So far, we've been unable to find that. (TMZ)

Jane Fonda's Final Fire Drill Friday Brings Out A-List Protestors Joaquin Phoenix, Martin Sheen and More. Jane Fonda took to Capitol Hill today for her final scheduled Fire Drill Fridays rallies -- and she wasn't alone. Several celebrities -- including Joaquin Phoenix, Martin Sheen, Susan Sarandon, Amber Valletta and Saffron Burrows -- joined their fellow activists at the climate change protest. "Oh my gosh! This is our last March up to the rally site for our -- not our Final Fire Drill Friday but the last one in D.C. for a while," Fonda said in a tweeted video. The 82-year-old actress has been hosting these demonstrations ever since mid-October, and each one has focused on a different climate issue. This week's march addressed the financing of the fossil fuel industry. Phoenix addressed the crowd at the event and spoke about the meat and dairy industry. "I think sometimes we wonder what we can do in this fight against climate change, and there's something that you can do today, right now, and tomorrow by making a choice about what you consume. And I think that it's something that is doable," the actor said, per a video shared by The Hill. "I struggle so much with what I can do at times. There are things that I can't avoid. I flew a plane out here today -- or last night, rather -- but one thing I can do is change my eating habits and so I just want to urge all of you to join me in that." This wasn't the first time Phoenix had spoken about this topic. He also applauded the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for having a plant-based meal at the 2020 Golden Globes. "I was so moved by the decision to make tonight plant-based. It was such an important step," he told reporters after winning Best Actor in a Motion Picture (Drama) for his performance in Joker. These weren't the only celebrities to attend the rallies. Over the past few months, Fonda, who has been arrested for unlawfully demonstrating at the marches, has been joined by Sally Field, Lily Tomlin, Catherine Keener, Ted Danson, Sam Waterston, June Diane Raphael, Marg Helgenberger, Rosanna Arquette, Piper Perabo, Diane Lane, Amber Valletta, Paul Scheer and Iain Armitage.

New England Patriots star Julian Edelman was arrested Saturday night after allegedly jumping on the hood of someone's Mercedes ... TMZ Sports has learned. Law enforcement sources tell us it went down this way ... Julian was in Bev Hills walking around at about 9 PM when for some unknown reason he hopped up on the car, causing damage. Impressive, considering the 33-year-old reportedly needs surgery on his left knee during the offseason. The bad news for Julian ... cops were in the area working a robbery case when someone flagged them down and gave them the lowdown. Edelman was arrested, cited for misdemeanor vandalism and released. He left with his friends. Our law enforcement sources say it was apparent to them Julian had been drinking ... which might explain a lot about the incident. The L.A. County D.A. will decide whether to file charges ... it's possible -- very possible -- this case goes nowhere if he squares up with the car owner, but we'll see. Of course, Edelman was only in Beverly Hills in the first place because the Patriots didn't make it to the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs. They were knocked out last week by the Tennessee Titans, which beat the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday night. We reached out to Julian's rep ... so far, no word back. (TMZ)

Dina Lohan may have taken the Outback Steakhouse experience a little too far, because she may have t-boned another car outside the restaurant while driving drunk ... so claim the cops who arrested her. Cops tell TMZ Lindsay Lohan's mom was driving a 2016 Mercedes Saturday at 7PM when she struck another car outside the restaurant. She then allegedly fled the scene, but the woman in the other car chased her all the way to Dina's Long Island home. Cops came, but they say Dina refused to submit to a drug/alcohol test. They say they observed clear signs of intoxication, so they arrested her for DUI, leaving the scene of an accident and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle. The DUI Dina now faces is a felony, because she has a prior. DWI. Dina was still in custody awaiting arraignment. (TMZ)

The nasty fight between R. Kelly's girlfriends that led to Joycelyn Savage being charged with battery has had a major effect on Azriel Clary too ... apparently, she's considering working with the feds. Sources close to Azriel tell TMZ ... she's come to a realization that Kelly played mind games and manipulated her since she moved out of his Trump Tower condo and reconnected with her family. We're told she now wants to help law enforcement with its investigation into Kelly, but she has a huge hang-up -- she's terrified because she's lied to federal agents several times in the past. Our sources say she fears she could be in big trouble if she changes her story and tells the feds what has really gone down with her, Joycelyn and Kelly. We're told she also signed an NDA with the singer ... so she's also scared of the legal repercussions of speaking out against him now. Azriel, we're told, is adamant she's telling the truth about Joycelyn having sex with her when she was still a minor -- which is what she claims started the blowout fight with Savage at Trump Tower. We broke the story ... cops were called to Kelly's Chicago pad after Azriel and Joycelyn got into a brawl, which was captured on Azriel's Instagram Live video. Clary made the allegations against Savage in the vid, along with saying R. Kelly's "been lying to you guys" and claiming he had her and Joycelyn lie for him too. As for the feds ... our law enforcement sources say investigators are reviewing the incident between Kelly's GFs, but for now, there are no plans to get involved. We're told the matter is in the hands of state authorities ... but that doesn't mean the feds won't be interested in speaking with Azriel. (TMZ)

Neil Peart from the band Rush -- one of the greatest drummers in rock history -- died Tuesday after battling cancer ... according to his family. Peart passed away in Santa Monica. The family says he'd been diagnosed with brain cancer 3 years ago, but hadn't announced it to Rush's legion of fans around the world. The Canadian rock trio of Rush formed in 1968, but Neil didn't join his bandmates -- bassist Geddy Lee and guitarist Alex Lifeson -- until 1974. All 3 men were known as virtuoso musicians and Neil's solo's are legendary ... in particular his drumming on iconic songs like "Tom Sawyer." His influence on today's rock musicians can't be overstated. If you, or your parents, were a drummer growing up in the 70s or 80s... you know about the endless hours amateurs spent trying to play like Neil. Sadly, he announced his retirement from the band in 2015 -- he'd been battling chronic pain related to tendinitis. The following year they announced the band was done touring ... not only because of Neil's health, but Alex was also battling arthritis. Geddy and Alex say if fans want to honor their "soul brother and bandmate" in some way ... please donate to a cancer charity in his name. Rush was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013. Neil's first his first partner, Jacqueline Peart, with whom he had a common-law marriage, died from cancer in 1998. They'd been married for more than 20 years. He later remarried in 2000. He's survived by Carrie Peart and their 10-year-old daughter. He was 67. RIP. (TMZ)
