Has Katy Perry moved on to a new man? After reports that estranged husband Russell Brand was caught in what appeared to be compromising situations with a few lovely ladies, the “Firework” singer has been romantically linked to the world’s most highly paid male model. (Is anyone else picturing Derek Zoolander right now?)
According to the U.K.’s Daily Mail, the pop star met French hunk Baptiste Giabiconi at the Chanel show at Paris Fashion Week; the two were photographed together with Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld.
“He was sitting next to her at the show. Then we all had dinner the other night; they were holding hands and looking cozy, and now they are inseparable,” a source relayed.
Yeah, whatever. We’re going to reserve judgment until it’s clear these two have actually been together in the same room without a bunch of other people around them.
We’re starting to think the editorial staff at OK! gets story ideas by throwing darts at a wall covered with names of celebrities and words such as “wedding,” “pregnant” and “adoption.” Hot on the heels of the supposed revelation that Angelina Jolie — last seen weighing about 70 pounds — is expecting comes the equally dubious “news” that Kim Kardashian is secretly in the process of adopting a baby.
“Kim has always been very maternal,” a supposed insider supposedly told the tabloid. “Of the three sisters, she’s the one who’s been saying that she’s ready for kids the longest.”
Well, it’s easy to imagine Kim opting to adopt so she could become a mom without stretch marks or baby weight. But something tells us this story is bogus anyway.
Costly Custody Battle
Usher’s ex-wife reportedly wants him to pony up $50,000 so she can fight him in court for custody of their kids. Wait, how does that work?
The R&B singer’s former spouse, Tameka, is asking a judge for that sum, according to documents obtained by TMZ — but he’s not having it, having already paid her $25,000. His attorneys say her actions “directly harm the best interests of the minor children.”
Bummer about the court costs and drama, Usher. Maybe next time your own mother can’t stand the woman you’re with, you should take that as a sign?
