What went wrong with Justin, Jessica?

Why did Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel split up after dating for 3½ years? The couple had weathered more than their fair share of breakup rumors, but their official announcement Friday seemed to come out of the blue.

“It really was mutual,” a source told People magazine. “There really wasn’t a final straw. They’re just two people who realized they wanted different things in life and were headed in different directions.”

“It was just easier to end it now rather than later,” the source said, adding, “It’s never easy when a relationship ends, but she knows this needed to happen and she’s moving on with her life.”

And what about those rumors the “SexyBack” singer might have strayed?

“There was never any proof,” the source said. “When you’re in a relationship, you have to choose to believe the person or get out.”

But another insider said Jessica “looked the other way” when it came to her man’s alleged extracurricular activities and that “it’s been a rough road” for the high-profile pair.

And J.T. might already have a potential rebound romance lined up. For some time, there’s been talk of him getting close to “Black Swan” star Mila Kunis.

<p>“Justin is very interested in Mila,” a source told E! Online. “They’ve been flirting, but so far nothing has happened.”

The pair co-star in the upcoming “Friends With Benefits” — a title that could turn out to be prescient.

It’s a girl!

After having three sons, Victoria and David Beckham are expecting a daughter, the soccer star said.

“Obviously, we’re very lucky to be expecting again, and this is the first time I’m going to say it: It’s a little girl,” Becks announced at an event for his L.A. Galaxy team.

“We’re still in shock,” he said. “Obviously, having three boys, you kind of expect another one, so finding out a little girl is in there is surprising, but, obviously, we are over the moon.”

We can’t wait to see how Posh dresses her little girl! Let’s just hope she doesn’t have the kid wearing platform stilettos before she learns to walk.


Wedding Bells?

Just when we were starting to think there were no happy couples left in Hollywood, word comes that Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough are head over heels — and very likely headed to the altar.

The “American Idol” host is “so in love it’s unreal,” a source told Radar Online.

“I have never seen Ryan like this before,” the source said. “I’ve seen him with past girlfriends and he has never been like this with them.”

We’ll be on the lookout for engagement bling.
