Another new man for Kim Kardashian

Somewhere, Halle Berry is breathing a sigh of relief. Though it seemed her baby daddy, Gabriel Aubry, was falling hard for Kim Kardashian — he even spent Thanksgiving with her family — the model and the reality star have parted ways.

“They still talk,” a source confided to People magazine. “They were getting to know each other, but realized they might be better off just being friendly.” An Us magazine source opines that they were “moving too fast” (see above re: Thanksgiving).

And the buzz that the socialite was interested in New Jersey Nets player Kris Humphries has panned out: They’ve been dating “for a while now,” according to the People insider. “Kim was dating, seeing a few guys, [including] Gabriel and Kris. … She is single, after all!”

“They get along so well,” another source notes. “They’ve been taking it slow, but they have so much fun together.”

Didn’t Kim end her last two relationships because she was so busy with work? Where is she finding the time to juggle dating with … er, whatever she supposedly does for work?

Forgiveness for a Price

She wants an overdue apology — plus interest. The dancer whom Demi Lovato allegedly sucker-punched in October, Alex Welch, is close to hashing out an out-of-court settlement with the Disney star, Radar Online reports.

“Alex is seeking a settlement, an apology from Demi and a donation made to a charity of her choice,” her lawyer told the site, adding that his camp “has faith that we will reach an amicable settlement.”

Alex, a backup dancer on the Jonas Brothers tour whom Demi allegedly suspected had gotten her in trouble with tour managers — and, hence, clocked in the face — was supposed to do a round of interviews Tuesday. But at the request of the “Sonny With a Chance” star’s camp, she agreed to remain mum while the case is worked out, per Radar.

We can’t help but wonder whether one of the points they’re negotiating is Alex consenting not to talk to the media, ever.

‘Good’ Girl

Kirsten Dunst is opening up about her time in rehab … sort of. The “Spider-Man” star, who was treated for depression in 2008 — though many suspected substance abuse issues were in the mix — hints that her experiences informed her role in the dark psychodrama “All Good Things,” her first film shoot after completing the program.

Her doomed character “had been torn down, and I know what it’s like to lose yourself, to no longer know the difference between right and wrong,” the actress explains to BlackBook magazine. “I had been living life on the surface, emotionally, and I was feeling really vulnerable, so I was prepared to do anything at that point.”

Of her stint in treatment, she recalls, “My friends and family were put in a position where they had to defend me, and it was an awful time.”

But she won’t get too personal about what she went through — at least not to the press, says Kirsten, noting that “on a personal level, I would talk to anybody about it, but not on a public level. If I do that, then the next person feels like they can ask me about it, and the person after that, until everyone then feels entitled to ask me about it, and that’s not coming from a good place.”

And despite rumors that partying played a role in her problems, Kirsten sees it differently. “When you’re a single girl in your 20s, yeah, you go out with your friends,” says the former child star. “And sometimes you drink too much. I don’t know anybody else, with any type of job, who doesn’t do that.”

Maybe Kirsten needs to make friends with some nice Amish girls.
