Justin Theroux Finally Speaks on “Gentle” Jennifer Aniston Split

No one told Justin Theroux his life was gonna be this way.

His job isn’t a joke. The guy definitely isn’t broke. And his love life, when it comes to Jennifer Aniston, was not DOA.

But the marriage was put to sleep back in February of this year, as the famous couple ended their union after two and a half years.

Did it die a slow and painful death, though?

The former Leftover lead has said next to nothing about his split from America’s Sweetheart, remaining almost entirely mum on the topic until speaking to The New York Times for an article that went viral on Saturday.

“The good news is that was probably the most – I’m choosing my words really carefully – it was kind of the most gentle separation, in that there was no animosity,” the 47-year old told the publication.

He added:

“In a weird way, just sort of navigating the inevitable perception of it is the exhausting part.”

That perception, of course, is that someone cheated.

Or there was some huge and ugly falling out.

Or, of course, that Aniston just wants to get back together with Brad Pitt and this romance was destined to fail.

Theroux and Aniston must have known that this is the sort of stuff people would say once they announced their divorce, so at least they were prepared to deal with the fallout.

In reality, however, Theroux says here that the break-up did not come about due to any one significant issue.

Rather, there were many small cracks that eventually led to an unfixable fissure.

“These are actually in reality small events that take place,” he said, explaining as best he could to The Times:

“But everything can feel like 10 on the Richter scale if you make the headline big enough and salacious enough.”

Sources at the time mostly blamed the split on different lifestyles and different visions of the future.

Aniston wanted to live full-time in Los Angeles, for example, while Theroux preferred New York.

Now, seven months later, Theroux says he’s adjusting well, noting that breakups in Hollywood are different because of what he refers to as a “kind of carny lifestyle” with frequent scenery changes.

“[It] doesn’t have that seismic shift of an ordinary couple, where everything is, like, you have to tear a baby in half,” he said.

“Neither one of us is dead, neither one of us is looking to throw hatchets at each other. It’s more like, it’s amicable. It’s boring, but, you know, we respected each other enough that it was as painless as it could be.”

That really is pretty boring.

Yet it also makes sense.

It must be challening to keep a spark lit when each half of the couple has such a busy schedule and is traveling so often.

“It was heartbreaking only in the sense that the friendship would not be the same, as far as just the day to day,” he concluded.

“But the friendship is shifting and changing, you know, so that part is something that we’re both very proud of.”

For her part, Aniston has clapped back against most of the BS out there.

“It’s pretty crazy,” she said in August. “The misconceptions are ‘Jen can’t keep a man,’ and ‘Jen refuses to have a baby because she’s selfish and committed to her career.

“Or that I’m sad and heartbroken.”

Having dealth with rumors about her womb and her love life forever and ever, Aniston rightfully went off this summer as follows:

First, with all due respect, I’m not heartbroken.

And second, those are reckless assumptions. No one knows what’s going on behind closed doors. No one considers how sensitive that might be for my partner and me.

They don’t know what I’ve been through medically or emotionally.

Demi Lovato’s Drug Dealer Actually Speaks on Near-Fatal Overdose

The man who allegedly sold Demi Lovato the drugs that nearly ended her life has actually stopped on the sidewalk and given an interview.

And he’s talked rather openly about the entire situation as well.

drug dealer

Over the past week or so, reports have identified Brandon Johnson as the dealer with whom Lovato had supposedly worked since April.

The two had developement a pretty close relationship that some outlets even claimed cross over from professional… to plutonic… to sexual.

Jacobs had just recently gotten arrested prior to meeting Demi — and has been under fire (even more fire than comes the way of most drug dealers, that is) because there’s a rumor floating around that Lovato took tainted drugs.

This is to say, Demi may have been unaware that the substance she was given had been laced with fentanyl.

Was this the case, TMZ asked Johnson when the website grabbed a few moments with him over the weekend?

No, the drug dealer replied.

The artist “100% she knew what she was taking,” Johnson tells TMZ, adding:

“I disclosed to her that these were not pharmaceutical. There were after market drugs, they were much stronger. She understood fully.”

Johnson would very obviously be an example of the kind of toxic acquiantance that Demi let into her life since she fell off the wagon this past spring.

He says the two had a  “flirty friendship” that did, at times, becomes a “sexual” relationship and that they occasionally “messed around.”

Why did she text him at 4 a.m. the night of July 23, after going out with some friends to celebrate a birthday and then going back to her home with a select few of them?

“Cause she’s a girl and she wanted to kick it,” he said.

What did he and Lovato during at this late hour?

“We hung out. We watched our detective shows as usual… she sometimes has such long days, stressful hours and a stressful job” and she needs to relax.

Johnson admitted that he and Demi also took drugs together, but he didn’t get into any specifics and he claimed to not even have known what the drugs were mixed with.

Moreover, Lovato was a “little drunk” when he showed up, this shady individual confirms, but he tucked her in and left around 7 a.m. or 8 a.m. after she appears to be safely in bed, asleep.

“I’m not here to hurt anybody. I care for her very much,” the drug dealer told TMZ, concluding:

“I care for her a lot. I hope she comes through this better than she was before she got into it.”

Last we heard, Lovato was doing pretty well in rehab.

She is at an undisclosed location and she will remain there for an extensive period of time; the rest of the year, at minimum, according to various insiders.

When she gets out, she’d be wise to continue therapy in some fashion; to rely on her family members and long-term friends; and to never contact anyone such as Johnson ever again.

Hang in there, Demi. We’re thinking of you.

Sarah Drew Finally Speaks Out on Grey’s Anatomy Firing!

This year’s Grey’s Anatomy casting shocker impacted a lot of fans. Some even proposed a boycott of the series.

Fans were not happy to see April leave the series. And no one was more disappointed than the actress herself, Sarah Drew.

For the first time, she is speaking out in detail about how the news was broken to her, how she reacted, and what she wishes had been different.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Sarah Drew finally details how she found out that she was leaving Grey’s Anatomy.

First of all, she explains the reason that she was given.

“I was told that the show had too many characters,” Drew reveals. “And that they needed to downsize because they couldn’t service all of the characters effectively.”

So we shouldn’t blame Ellen Pompeo and her huge salary, in other words.

Drew explains: “They didn’t want any of us to be left in the background and not getting much of a story.”

Writing a book and writing a TV series are not the same, and have different considerations because there are real people involved.

Drew also shares that a showrunner explained why her character in particular went to the chopping block.

“Krista Vernoff said that she felt like April had been through so much and had come out the other side,” Drew says. “And that she didn’t know what she could put her through again.”

Viewers are familiar with watching a beloved character suffer again and again and wanting them to get their happily ever after.

Well, shows are built on conflict. Most characters don’t get a happily ever after and to get to stay on the show.

“It was really hard to hear that,” Drew admits. “But Krista had a lot of very complimentary things to say about the work that I had done — especially this past season — and that April was going to have her happy ending.”

The news was, of course, difficult to take.

“It was in the afternoon and I went back to my trailer and I did my crying and called my people,” Drew shares. “A whole bunch of people came into my trailer to give me hugs and cry with me and tell me they were so sad I was leaving.”

Thta sounds devastating.

“I was supposed to be shadowing Kevin this whole episode with the hope that I would get to direct an episode of Grey’s,” Drew reveals. “But [after being let go] it seemed like wasn’t a possibility anymore.”

She says that her Emmy nomination was a source of comfort.

“My confidence had gotten a bit shaken in the wake of being let go,” Drew confesses. “And the nomination after the fact made me go, ‘I don’t need to be worried about anything or have my confidence shaken.”

Like many Japril shippers who watched at home, Drew had imagined that things would go differently for her character.

“In the midst of it, I was devastated that Jackson (Jesse Williams) and April wasn’t an end game,” Drew confesses.

She thought that April would be looking into those famously beautiful eyes for the rest of her life.

“I thought Jackson and April were meant to get back together,” Drew admits. “And they were going to get married again and realize they’d been crazy and it was just going to be this long, slow burn.”

So many viewers have been there.

Drew acknowledges: “But after thinking about it, there’s a real sweetness to that story of April’s faith.”

Drew says: “She ran off with Jackson and loved him and wouldn’t regret a single second of that relationship because it made her heart grow and she got a beautiful daughter out of it.”

“She grew as a woman and as a person of faith,” Drew affirms. “All of that had to happen.”

That was not endgame for the character, however.

“But,” Drew says. “There was something beautiful about the redemption story between April and Matthew.”

When the show you love doesn’t end a character or storyline the way that you’d like, well, that’s why fanfiction exists.

Kourtney Kardashian-Younes Bendjima Split Gets Ugly as Side-Piece Speaks Out!

As you’ve likely heard by now, Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima have called it quits after dating for much, much longer than anyone expected them to.

Proving once again that the eldest Kardashian sister has the absolute worst taste in men, Younes allegedly cheated on Kourtney while she ignored some textbook warning signs.

You’d think that after ten years with Scott Disick, she’d be more savvy about this sort of thing, but maybe all that time with the Lord has caused Kourt to lower her standards.

Like, as long as a guy is in the same country as her, and he’s not currently hospitalized for alcohol poisoning, that’s good enough.

Anyway, Kourt and Younes have called it quits, and the spilt should be an amicable one, as Bendjima was clearly just a rebound dude who overstayed his welcome.

Then again, Kourtney has been in exactly one serious relationship in her adult life, and that ex fell madly in love with his very next love interest, so she may have gone into this thing with high hopes.

Whatever the case, the relationship is now over, and by all accounts, it ended in ugly fashion.

Sources concur that Younes was caught cheating on Kourtney, an allegation he strongly denies.

Instead, the male model says he was unceremoniously kicked to the curb.

“Kourtney was the one who initiated the split,” he recently claimed.

Younes has confirmed that “Kourtney was the one who initiated the split,” but he takes issue with media outlets who want to “wanna make me the bad guy.”

“Once again you guys failed,” Bendjima wrote on Instagram this week.

“I’m not attached to this ‘life’ so you can’t touch me. I know who I am and where I’m from and where I’m going and that bothers you.”

Shortly after the split, Younes was spotted partying with former Hooters waitress and Kardashian groupie Jordan Ozuna, who was previously linked to both Tyga and Justin Bieber.

Ozuna has now issued a statement claiming that she and Younes are just friends.

“Younes and I are not involved romantically at all,” she wrote.

“We were both invited to Mexico for a mutual friend’s birthday party with 13 other people.”

The abrupt end to the relationship, coupled with the fact that Younes reportedly awfully friendly with Younes seem to support the cheating rumors, but some insiders claim otherwise:

“Near the end of the relationship, the two weren’t getting along and the age difference ultimately played a part,” one source tells E! News.

“Younes is young, and although mature for his age, he and Kourtney are at different stages in their lives.”

Well, hopefully, these two can just go their separate ways, and maybe one day they’ll reflect fondly on their time together.

Whatever the case, at least they don’t have kids together.

Sadly, Kourt is shackled to Disick’s drunk ass for life.

Matt Roloff Speaks on Audrey: Is She Pregnant?!?

Matt Roloff would like your attention, please.

The Little People, Big World patriarch is aware of what many fans out there are thinking at the moment.

He apparently reads the Internet and is plugged in to the gossip circles and he knows what you’re wondering right now:

Is Audrey Roloff pregnant with her second child?

Chatter surrounding the status of Audrey’s womb is running rampant this week… and it’s sort of all her father’s fault.

A few days ago, you see, Matt Roloff shared a very sweet photo on Instagram, giving followers a sort of candid look at Audrey, husband Jeremy and daughter Ember.

As you can see below, Audrey is laughing and Jeremy is holding his child aloft, all while the immediate family hangs out at Roloff Farms.

Matt then wrote as an affiliated caption:

Today was a crazy day. …. I could explain. But better to just leave it at that. Im going to sleep a happy grandpa.

Interesting and sort of intriguing, right?

Why was Matt happy? Why did he deem the day to be crazy?

According to Radar Online, it was because Audrey and Jeremy had gathered their loved ones together that afternoon and announced they were expecting a sibling for Ember.

Hooray, right?!?

Not so fast, Matt now appears to be clarifying.

“Oh my goodness… my last post was much more innocent then the stir it caused,” the veteran reality star wrote on Thursday, adding:

“let me explain… had a long day with equipment breakdowns, setting up pumpkin season stuff etc etc.. so after a crazy day I’m sitting on my back deck with a few friends and Jeremy, Audrey and Ember pull up to say hi and watch the sunset with us..

“The joys of being a grandpa…. moments like that.”

Oh. Well. Darn. 

Matt ended his latest message with the following joke in a caption of a truly harmless image:

“Now… before everyone goes crazy again… this photo is simply me getting all the landscaping power tools cleaned up and ready to go.”

Har, har, Matt.

All this said, it still wouldn’t shock us if Audrey and Jeremy do announce another baby is on the way in the near future.

Their schedule is pretty clear going forward if they want to have unprotected sex around the clock and give it a shot, as the couple will NOT be returning to Little People, Big World.

Scroll down to see what Jeremy said about this decision last month…

After 14 years, over 300 episodes, and 17 seasons, the time has come.

A year ago I made the decision that this season would be our last. It has been an amazing run, and I can’t say thank you enough to all of you who have watched and supported us along the ride.

We have the most loyal fans on TV and we appreciate every one of you. You are what made doing this so fun.

We will still be supporting the family as they carry the #LPBW torch onward. This is a decision concerning Audrey and me specifically – the show must go on!

We have a lot of exciting stuff in the works and are eager to continue the work that the Lord has called us to.

Whether or not this means another kid some time, we’ll need to wait to find out!

Ariana Grande Speaks Out About Pete Davidson’s Manchester Bombing Joke: It Wasn’t Funny …

Recently, the world was reminded that, many months before dating Ariana Grande, Pete Davidson made an unfortunate joke about the Manchester Bombing.

Ariana’s fans, understandably sensitive to the issue, reacted with shock.

Now, after giving it some thought, Ariana is speaking out.

In the autumn of 2017, Pete Davidson put his gallows humor on full display when speaking about Ariana Grande in stand-up.

At the time, he and Ariana were not even dating, let alone engaged.

He joked that the horrible Manchester bombing of Ariana’s concert in 2017 had been a measure of the level of Ariana’s fame.

“Britney Spears,” Pete noted for contrast. “Didn’t have a terrorist attack at her concert.”

It wasn’t terribly funny as a joke and, since Britney was doing her Vegas residency at the time, the comparison doesn’t really work, either.

But more or less everyone forgot about it … until a few days ago, when people dredged it up again now that Pete and Ariana are engaged.

A number of fans, who took the Manchester bombing very personally, were shocked.

(Keep in mind that, not only is a terrorist attack that kills multiple children serious, but a number of Ariana’s fans are too young to remember 9/11 and this may have been their first brush with non-shooting terrorism that touched them, personally)

It was one tweet by an Arianator that prompted Ariana to speak her mind on Pete’s joke.

The fan wrote: “I respect Ariana and I want her to be happy and everything, but she was just broken after the Manchester bombing.”

The fan’s tweet continues: “so I don’t know why she is still with Pete, like yeah he made that joke a while ago, but like it’s not funny, it’s just rude. This is my opinion.”

Ariana clearly gave this some thought before replying.

Ariana Grande Speaks Out on Pete Davidson Joke

Ariana replied with a tweet of her own.

“This has been very tough & conflicting on my heart,” Ariana admits.

Referring to Pete, she writes that “he uses comedy to help people feel better about how f-ed up things in this world are.”

He sure does.

“We all deal w trauma differently,” Ariana admits.

She’s right. Different coping mechanisms for different folks.

“I of course didn’t find it funny,” she admits.

“it was months ago & his intention wasn’t/ is never malicious,” Ariana says. “But it was unfortunate.”

There are a few things that we should all remember.

One, Pete Davidson’s father died on 9/11. He absolutely does not think that terrorism is funny, but he uses dark humor to cope.

Two, though this was a bad joke (honestly, barely a joke), there are lines that Pete is not crossing. He’s not wishing a terrorist attack on someone else, for example. He’s not hurling slurs.

Three, somebody making a crappy joke before you ever dated is really not breakup material. Sure, you can break up for any reason, but that would be … odd.

Four, and this can be the hardest to grasp, but the way that Pete spoke before dating Ariana was directed at a more adult audience. 

Now that he and Ariana are engaged, he will probably be more conscious that there are impressionable and emotional teens hanging onto his every word.

Ariana and Pete’s whirlwind romance has still caught a number of fans by surprise.

In fact, it was at Ariana’s tribute to the Manchester bombing victims that she and Pete were first spotted cozying up to each other.

Now the two are engaged, and it is understandable that some fans are still scratching their heads and trying to figure out what’s going on.

Some may even have misgivings about Ariana accepting the proposal of this man whom they barely know.

But they should remember that, though Ariana loves her Arianators, they are not literally her family. She does not actually need their permission to date or marry.

Fans should be happy to Ariana is happy.
