Keanu Reeves and His Girlfriend Alexandra Grant Have Been Dating for a Lot Longer Than You Thought. It looks like Keanu Reeves and Alexandra Grant have been dating for a lot longer than fans thought. Jennifer Tilly told Page Six the 55-year-old actor and the 47-year-old artist have actually been together for years. "I remember a couple years ago, about a year and a half ago, [Grant] said, 'Keanu Reeves is my boyfriend' and I'm like, 'Wait. What? What? What?'" the 61-year-old actress told the outlet at the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women Red Dress Collection event on Wednesday. Some assumed it was a new romance after The Matrix star and his leading lady made their red-carpet debut as a couple in November. The dynamic duo walked hand in hand and posed for pictures together at the 2019 LACMA Art + Film Gala in Los Angeles. "It's really astonishing to me how in the last five months, all of a sudden, she goes to an event with him and everybody goes insane, like, 'It's his new girlfriend,' because she had gone to a lot of events with him," Tilly continued. "It's just suddenly surfaced that he's been dating her for several years." In fact, the Bride of Chucky star thinks they're quite the match. "I saw him at her last art opening, and he's not, like, wanting the spotlight, because he's a really low-key guy, too, and I think why everybody went crazy is that they're sort of the perfect couple," Tilly, who met Grant at a dinner party years ago, told Page Six. "I think everybody wishes that they had something like that. It's not a razzle dazzle Hollywood romance." Reeves and Grant go way back. They worked on a 2011 book together called Ode to Happiness. Reeves provided the text while Grant did the illustrations. They then released a second book together called Shadows in 2016 and cofounded the publisher X Artists' Books in 2017. (Eonline)

On Saturday afternoon, the 36-year-old reality TV personality celebrated her baby shower with her loved ones, which included BFF Khloe Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and so many others. The lavish party was full of fun and festive decorations by celebrity event and wedding planner Mindy Weiss. The room was adorned with larger-than-life teddy bears, a huge cake, a cereal bar and balloons galore. If anything, the beautiful event wasn't lost on the expectant mother, who is a little over eight months pregnant. "Everything within this room basically knows my journey and how bad I wanted [this baby]," Malika shared, which Khloe captured the heartwarming speech on her Instagram Stories. "This is the reason why I didn't want anyone else to speak because I knew I would cry if anyone else said to me what was on their heart." Chiming in, Khloe said, "We love you!" Malika continued her speech, in which she also revealed her baby's father. It was something she decided to keep privately when she first shared her pregnancy announcement. But now, she's ready to open up. "Whether you brought me lunch or called me or texted me...," she explained. "I'm incredibly thankful to Odis Flores for my little boy."

It's only a matter of time before Malika gets to welcome her little bundle of joy! (Eonline)

Jon Peters Broke Up With Pamela Anderson Over Text 11 Days After Their Secret Wedding. Pamela Anderson only spent five days with Jon Peters before he called off their marriage with a text message, Us Weekly exclusively confirms. The model, 52, spent half of the 11 days they were married away from the movie producer, 74, at her house in Canada, and they never completed official paperwork to legalize their union. Then, Peters sent a text message to his new bride calling things off. The text described their "beautiful amazing love fest" but read, "This whole marriage thing ... has scared me." Peters wrote, "It made me realize that at 74 I need a simple quiet life and not an international love affair. Therefore, I think the best thing we can do is that I'm going to go away for a couple of days and maybe you need to go back up to Canada we did it. The world knows we did it and I think now we need to go our own separate ways. I hope that you can forgive me." During their short marriage, the couple were only together for four-and-a-half days after tying the knot on January 20 at Shutters on the Beach hotel in Santa Monica. An insider says that after the wedding, they stayed at Peters' house until January 24, and Anderson later flew to Canada. The former Baywatch star then went to Los Angeles on January 29. The next day, Peters sent his message ending their relationship. Anderson flew to Canada once more on January 31. "Jon has spent his lifetime producing movies and has amassed a sizable fortune, which is for his kids," a source tells Us. "He realized that marrying Pam could affect that and there was no way he was prepared to take that risk." The A Star Is Born producer ended his text to the former Playboy Playmate by saying he still wanted her to play a role in a movie he is putting together called Private Dancer. He added: "I love you, Jon. I want to be in your life forever." Anderson simply responded, "I forgive you" with a face-throwing-a-kiss emoji. This was the fifth marriage for both. The animal activist was previously wed to Tommy Lee from 1995 to 1998, Kid Rock from 2006 to 2007 and Rick Salomon from 2007 to 2008 and again from 2014 to 2015. The former hairdresser, meanwhile, was formerly married to Henrietta Zampitella, actress Lesley Ann Warren and fellow producers Christine Forsyth-Peters and Mindy Peters. He has three children. Us Weekly has reached out to Anderson's rep for comment. (UsMagazine)

Pamela Anderson Was Never Legally Married to 12-Day Husband Jon Peters: Source. On Feb. 1, Pamela Anderson announced she had split from her new husband, movie mogul Jon Peters. Pamela Anderson's 12-day marriage to movie mogul Jon Peters was never made legal, a source tells PEOPLE. Anderson, 52, announced on Feb. 1 that she and Peters had split less than two weeks after their secret wedding. However, a source confirms to PEOPLE that the two had not yet filed the legal paperwork for a marriage certificate after their Jan. 20 nuptials. "Legal paperwork for the marriage was never filed," the source says. A source previously told PEOPLE that Anderson decided to call off the marriage because she "just needed to take a step back." "Although they have known each other for more than 30 years, they had never lived together," the source said. "Living with someone, you truly get to know them. Pam's a romantic, but she is also very independent ... This all moved a bit fast, so they both agreed to put it off." And on Friday, Anderson exclusively told PEOPLE that the pair "remain friends." Anderson announced the split to The Hollywood Reporter 12 days after she and Peters tied the knot. "I have been moved by the warm reception to Jon and my union," the actress and activist said. "We would be very grateful for your support as we take some time apart to re-evaluate what we want from life and from one another. Life is a journey and love is a process. With that universal truth in mind, we have mutually decided to put off the formalization of our marriage certificate and put our faith in the process. Thank you for respecting our privacy." The two first met in the mid-'80s while at Hugh Hefner's Playboy mansion and began dating after their encounter, before reconnecting years later. "Pamela has never seen her full potential as an artist. She has yet to shine in a real way. There is much more to her than meets the eye, or I wouldn't love her so much," Peters, 74, told THR after their wedding last month. "There are beautiful girls everywhere. I could have my pick, but -- for 35 years -- I've only wanted Pamela." "She makes me wild -- in a good way. She inspires me. I protect her and treat her the way she deserves to be treated," he continued. Anderson was previously married to Tommy Lee -- with whom she shares sons Brandon, 23, and Dylan, 22 -- from 1995 to 1998. The actress later married and divorced Kid Rock in 2006, and also married and divorced producer Rick Solomon twice -- in 2007 and 2013. Peters, who produced both Barbra Streisand's A Star Is Born in 1976 and the remake in 2018 with Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, was previously married to actress Lesley Ann Warren and producer Christine Forsyth-Peters.

Comedian Bryan Callen -- famous for roles in huge movies like "Joker," "Old School" and "The Hangover" -- is getting divorced ... TMZ has learned. According to court records, Bryan's wife, Amanda Humphrey, filed divorce docs Friday in L.A. County Superior Court after more than 11 years of marriage. The exes have kids together ... which could make the divorce a lot more complicated. Bryan and Amanda tied the knot way back in October 2008 ... it's not clear what led to the split. BTW ... Bryan was one of the 8 original cast members of the sketch comedy series, "MADtv," when it debuted in 1995 and he's currently on the ABC show, "Schooled." (TMZ)

Lori Harvey is lucky she escaped a sneak attack in a parking structure -- and if not for her quick-thinking skills her car might have been jacked ... TMZ has learned. Steve Harvey's daughter had just parked her 2020 Rolls-Royce Cullinan at an apartment complex in Atlanta Wednesday night ... and made her way to the trunk to grab some stuff. That's when the suspect crept up and ran to jump in the driver's seat. According to the police report -- obtained by TMZ -- Lori told cops the suspect was a young black guy who tried to steal her ride. We're told Lori actually ran toward him and struggled with him as he was sitting in the SUV ... but he pushed her away. Lori told cops that's when she realized she could just walk away with the key fob to thwart the attempted auto theft -- because it can't be put in drive without it. We're told she simply walked away nonchalantly. As she did, a second suspect pulled up in a getaway car, hopped out, ran to the back of her Rolls and grabbed a red duffel bag. Both he and the first suspect jumped in their vehicle and fled. Clean getaway, but according to the report they didn't get much. The duffel bag was the only item stolen, and it only contained some clothing. Cops say Lori didn't complain of any injuries and refused medical treatment. She told police she was returning from Whole Foods, so cops are looking to see if any surveillance cameras may have captured the suspects tailing her into the lot. (TMZ)

Lori Loughlin says the government has withheld key evidence proving her innocence in the college admissions scandal, but the government has just fired back ... sarcastically responding that the so-called exculpatory evidence was a statement that the witness had not even made when Lori started complaining. TMZ broke the story ... Lori and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, claimed the U.S. Attorney intentionally withheld evidence showing they were giving money to USC and unaware any of the $500,000 was used to bribe University officials. The government just responded, saying there is no such evidence being withheld, and then doubling down, saying, "the absence of such evidence is a result of their criminal conduct, not any government disclosure violations." And, now prosecutors get nasty. They say some of the information that was just handed over -- evidence Lori claims was wrongly withheld -- is from interviews conducted with witnesses very recently. Prosecutors say in the legal docs ... "The government has broad powers, but they do not include mental telepathy or time travel. The government cannot disclose witness statements before the witnesses make them." The government goes on to say no University officials condoned the scheme. (TMZ)

"Dukes of Hazzard" star John Schneider is one stingy son of a gun, according to his ex-wife ... who claims he owes her 7 figures and she's taking extreme measures to get it. John's ex, Elvira Schneider, claims the actor owes her more than $1 million in unpaid spousal support, dating back 4 years ... according to new docs obtained by TMZ. All in, Elvira says Bo Duke's shorted her $1,115,824. And, you thought Boss Hogg was pissed?!? BTW, that massive figure includes a previously agreed-upon 10 percent interest rate. As we first reported, John was ordered to pay $18,911 per month back in September 2016, while they were still hammering out the divorce. They finally reached a settlement last August, and his monthly nut jumped to $25,000. John's ex thinks he should have no problem squaring up -- she claims he's raking in $172,777 PER MONTH! If he can't pay it all in one lump sum, not to worry ... Elvira's got a plan. She's asked the court to give her a slice of John's income from 30 different studios and production companies that pay him. (TMZ)

The Kobe and Gigi Bryant public memorial has been set for Monday, Feb. 24 at Staples Center -- with organizers expecting a MASSIVE turnout, and Vanessa Bryant just announced it. The date (2/24) is significant -- #24 was Kobe's jersey number and #2 was the number his daughter Gianna wore. We're told the event will take place in the morning -- because the Clippers have a game against the Memphis Grizzlies later in the evening. Event organizers had been discussing a venue for days -- going back-and-forth between Staples and The Coliseum over concerns about the size of the crowd. Staples -- where Kobe played for most of his 20-year NBA career -- only holds about 20,000 people. The Coliseum in Downtown L.A. holds closer to 80,000. As for the event itself, we're told several high-profile people will speak about Bryant -- but organizers are still nailing down the official list. Kobe and Gigi passed away in a helicopter crash on Jan 26th in Calabasas, CA., along with 7 others. The Lakers held a massive tribute for all of the victims before and during the Lakers' January 31st game against the Portland Trail Blazers. Not only was the arena filled with fans -- all wearing Kobe shirts -- but outside, hundreds of people packed the surrounding area to remember the Lakers legend. (TMZ)
