Rosie O’Donnell’s Ex Wants Custody (Or Just Money)

Earlier this year, Rosie O’Donnell and wife Michelle Rounds decided to end their marriage after a little less than three years together. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like things are going to end peacefully, because Michelle has applied for full custody of their daughter Dakota – a movie Rosie’s people say is all about money.

From TMZ:

Rosie O’Donnell is fighting back against her estranged wife, and sources connected with Rosie say the wife is going for full custody of their daughter for one reason … money.

Michelle Rounds is filing legal docs Tuesday, asking for full custody of their 2-year-old daughter Dakota. Michelle’s lawyer told the New York Post full custody is necessary to protect the child’s “general welfare.”

But our Rosie sources are scoffing, saying that the couple has a prenup and this is nothing more than a money play, adding Rosie is a “devoted mother” and her parenting skills and dedication are well-documented.

The sources say Michelle is trying to hit Rosie where it hurts the most so she’ll open her wallet. One source says, “Michelle can’t even raise a dog … she’s given multiple dogs away.”

Well, that’s always nice, having your kids caught between petty ass adults. Definitely a great lesson to teach them. Of course, if Rounds is motivated – as her lawyer claims – by wanting to protect the best interest of the children, then that’s one thing. But Dakota isn’t Rosie’s only child – far from it. Clearly Rounds doesn’t doubt Rosie’s skills as a parent, so what gives?

Taylor Swift’s Relationship With Harry Styles Is Making Calvin Harris Jealous

harry styles taylor swift calvin harris

This is a story straight out of some Livejournal user’s fanfic, but let’s go with it. As you know, Taylor Swift is apparently dating Calvin Harris right now. While Calvin is a grown ass man and doesn’t really need to worry about Taylor ever being unfaithful, since that’s not really her bag, he’s apparently feeling super jealous about Harry Styles, since Taylor told Calvin that she had been occasionally hooking up with him until recently. Say whaaaat?

“He’s not usually the jealous type, but Taylor’s history with Harry has Calvin’s back up big-time, because he knows how charming Harry can be and what an impact he had on Taylor,” the source told OK!

The source added that Taylor “came clean” about the fact she and Harry were still hooking up “until recently” though they split back in 2013, and Calvin “appreciated her honesty.”

However, that’s not stopped the DJ from being a macho man about the whole love triangle, though he’s secretly worried he could be second rate in comparison to the One Direction star.

There’s no doubt he’s threatened,” the insider added. “He’s made Harry aware in no uncertain terms that he needs to stop sniffing around Taylor and to stay the f*** away.”

I mean, this entire story from start to finish is horseshit, but let’s pretend we believe it and talk logically here. I can buy that Calvin Harris would be jealous of Harry Styles, just in like, the grand scheme of the world. Harry’s seen as some sex god/heartthrob, and Calvin is a former fat kid (self-described) who got hot because he had something to prove to the world. In other words, it sure doesn’t come naturally to him. However, when it comes to Taylor, he barely even likes her anyway, so his getting territorial over her seems… eh, a bit unnecessary.

I like Calvin’s music, but I really REALLY am not into him and Taylor as a couple. I hope this one ends quickly so we can move on to Single Taylor status again, since she’s most enjoyable.

Hilary Duff Is Talking To 9 Guys On Tinder Right Now

hilary duff tinder

Hilary Duff only made her divorce from Mike Comrie official a couple of months ago, but they’d been split for a while, so it’s no wonder she’s single and ready to mingle… and apparently taking to Tinder to find dudes. In fact, she’s enjoying the experience and is apparently talking to multiple guys at once right now.

From MyFM’s Valentine in the Morning:

“I was sitting with my friends one night at the house, and we were joking around,” she explained. “In my life, I’ve always had really serious boyfriends, I’ve always met people through work, and I’ve never been on a blind date. So what’s the worst that’s gonna happen?” (Tempting fate there, Hil!)

She went on to chat about her experience so far, calling the whole process “wildly addicting.” And productive, it seems!

“I’m talking to probably about…nine guys right now,” the mom to Luca, 3, told Valentine. “Some people don’t know [who I am], I think some people act like they don’t know but they do, and then a lot of people are like, ‘This is a joke, right?’”

I mean, hey – whatever works for you. Though frankly, I can’t particularly see her taking this experience seriously, considering that if she’s got a picture of herself on her profile (which, you know, is kinda the point of Tinder), guys are either going to not believe it’s actually her, or they’ll believe it and they’ll only be interested in her because of who she is. It’s gotta be hard to meet “normal” people when you’re in Hollywood, but Hilary, this is not the way!

Would you swipe right or left or Hilary Duff?

Nick Gordon Is Out Of Rehab, Apparently

Whitney Houston and daughter Bobbi Kristina

It seems like only yesterday that Nick Gordon was boo-hooing and famewhoring on Dr. Phil,  playing the victim and acting like the entire world is against him and he’s so hard done by. This was bull shit, of course, but off he trotted to rehab in last month, and now he’s out and apparently cured of all his maladies (or not).

Nick Gordon has ended his stint in rehab, a source tells PEOPLE.

The boyfriend of Bobbi Kristina Brown is now back home and staying with his mother, Michelle Gordon, the source says.

Well, that’s… conclusive. Frankly, I wouldn’t be surprised if he walked out because he’s pretending to miss Bobbi Kristina too much or because he thinks long enough time has elapsed for the world to have forgotten that he just may be involved in what happened to Bobbi Kristina… Let’s hope that investigation continues.

Zac Efron Goes Nearly Nude Just For You

And now, something for the ladies (and the gentlemen who are so inclined). Zac Efron has been busy filming his upcoming movie, Dirty Grandpa (sounds… interesting), in LA this week, and he had to strip down to nearly nothing. Nothing besides nude briefs that basically left zero to the imagination. Zac’s smart, however, since he covered up his modesty as best he could.

Dirty Grandpa stars Robert De Niro as an ex-army grandpa (duh) who convinces his grandson to go on a bachelor party/boys gone wild trip with him. The results, as you can see, are… nude.

What do you think? Would you give Efron a go?

Courtney Stodden Is Shopping A Sex Tape

It’s the day you’ve all been waiting for, no doubt… and a day that seems to have been several years in the making and that frankly, I thought would have come before now. Courtney Stodden is shopping a sex tape, and it’s looking like porn giant Vivid is going to end up with it. It’s not just any sex tape, either – it’s a solo endeavor (so thankfully, you’ll be spared Doug Hutchison‘s… everything).

From TMZ:

Sources in the sex tape game told us 20-year-old Courtney recently shot her porn debut — and it’s being shopped around town. This ain’t our first rodeo … so, we figured the tape would eventually make it to the desk of Vivid Entertainment honcho Steven Hirsch, and … bingo!

Hirsch confirms he’s already seen the video, and reveals it’s a solo effort (think Octomom, but hotter) — sorry, Doug Hutchison fans. He also says the DD photo op queen “looks amazing, this is the most unique footage I’ve ever seen.”

As for whether Vivid’s bidding on the tape — Hirsch wouldn’t tip his hand.

But y’know the game by now — Courtney has to sign off for the video to be legally distributed, and our guess is if Hirsch gets her to do that … it’s just a matter of time before there’s a full release.

I’m pretty chill – basically, as long as she willingly filmed this and actually wants it out, she should get that $$$ and enjoy the attention. Unfortunately, I don’t think she has a career in Hollywood in another avenue, and that’s totally fine. Live it up, Courtney.

Jeremy Jackson Stabbed A Gangbanger With A Clown Tattoo In Self-Defense

jeremy jackson arrest

That’s kinda the best headline you’ve read all week, right? If you can’t quite remember who Jeremy Jackson is, he was a child and is probably best known for his role as Hobie in Baywatch back in the day. Since then, he’s turned into an absolute mess, with numerous trips to rehab (apparently the drugs he took as a teenager made him feeling like working on Baywatch was “beneath him”, LOL), brushes with the law, etc. Most recently, he was arrested just this past Saturday for stabbing a guy at a party, though he claims it was all in self-defense.

From TMZ:

Jeremy was jailed Saturday, after cops nabbed him for allegedly burglarizing an Airbnb.  Police say during the arrest they realized he fit the profile of a man who stabbed a guy the day before.

Jeremy tells TMZ, he rented an Airbnb and threw a party with some women.  During the shindig, he says a guy showed up, beat him up and robbed him to the tune of $2,300.

This is where it gets bizarre.  Jeremy says one of the women said she knew a guy who could help him get the money back, so Jeremy told her to get him over STAT.  He says the guy showed up but then turned on him and tried robbing him for a second time.

Jeremy says the guy pulled a gun, and in self defense he pulled a buck knife from his jeans and stabbed the guy in the stomach, abdomen and arms.  The guy dropped the gun and ran.

Jeremy identifies the guy as a Canoga Park gangbanger with a clown tattoo on his face.

As for the burglary … Jeremy says he went back to the Airbnb the next day to retrieve his Gucci sunglasses and some other items and had to break in to get them.  That’s when the cops were called.

I… am actually really speechless on this one. Robbing an Airbnb? Stabbing a man with a clown tattoo on his face? It’s all too much to handle. I think someone needs to head back to rehab (and then, you know, jail).
