Ariana Grande vs. Pete Davidson: Whose Side Should You Take In This Ugly Breakup?

From the very beginning, many of us predicted that the Ariana Grande-Pete Davidson romance wouldn't last very long.

But even the most skeptical among us never thought it would flame out this quickly and in such spectacular fashion.

Not only have Pete and Ariana broken up just months after announcing their engagement, it seems they're now venting their frustrations with one another publicly — Davidson through his comedy, and Grande via indignant tweets.

It's a messy situation that gets more confusing with each new piece of information that comes to light.

But fear not, reformed Grandson 'shippers, your friends at The Hollywood Gossip are here to help you make sense of this increasingly bitter breakup:

1. Downhill Fast

Pete and Ariana’s relationship went from storybook romance to petty feud faster than you can say “Piggy Smallz.”

2. Surprise After Non-Surprise

The breakup itself didn’t come as much of a shock. After all, couples who move as quickly as Pete and Ari tend to favor intensity over longevity.

3. A Bitter Split

Fans were caught off-guard, however, when it became clear that Pete and Ariana did not part ways on amicable terms.

4. A Reversal of Opinion

Ariana stans who were previously head-over-heels for both Pete Davidson and “pete davidson” (Grande’s song paying tribute to her then-boyfriend) now found themselves seething with rage toward the SNL comic.

5. Keeping Mum

At first, Pete and Ariana kept the details of their split on the down-low. Now, however, the truth is out — and it’s unpleasant.

6. Getting Ugly

Tristan Thompson vs. Khloe Kardashian: Ugly Custody Battle on Tap?

According to a number of recent reports, it may be over between Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson.

Finally, right?

However, as one insider points out below, an ugly and contentious custody battle may just be starting.

Over the past few days, there have been more rumblings than ever before that Khloe is ready to end her romance with the overpaid power forward.

She’s tried her hardest to forgive Tristan for cheating, but she will never be able to fully trust the horny baller ever again.

Moreover, a new NBA season has started and Thompson will be on the road frequently over the next six months or so, leaving Khloe alone with daughter True and prompting her to wonder:

What am I doing here? What’s the point? Why am I limiting my options to this tall drink of dishonest water?

“She very much seems over Tristan,” a source close to the situation told People Magazine this week, adding:

“Not sure how they went from fine to being apart for weeks, but Khloe is doing great.”

Here’s the thing, however.

Here is what some folks out there are forgetting as they blame Khloe for sticking with Tristan in the first place:

What about little True?

Not just her well-being; we mean, what about a potential custody battle that could ensue if Khloe really does call off this relationship?

That must be a scary proposition and it must be something Khloe has thought about when weighing her options.

As she should, an insider tells In Touch Weekly.

“Tristan adores his daughter and wants to be near her and has told [Khloe] he’ll fight for custody if he has to,” writes this tabloid, adding:

“He’s on the road so much and spends so much time in Cleveland. Khloe wants True to be permanently based in LA. It’s not up for negotiation.”

Except that… it may be. Khloe may not have a choice.

It’s possible that Tristan makes a huge legal stink if/when things truly conclude between him and Kardashian and he becomes concerned that he may never see his kid again.

As for whether Khloe will go through with the break-up anyway and deal with the consequences later?

We can’t say for certain right now.

But she is getting pressure from her family the make this decision and she continues to hint on Instagram that things are far from perfect.

“Life doesn’t always introduce you to the people you want to meet,” she recently wrote on that platform, mysterious concluding:

“Sometimes life puts you in touch with the people you need to meet – to help you, to hurt you, to leave you, to love you, and to gradually strengthen you into the person you were meant to become.

“Be proud of yourself for how hard you’re trying.”


Noah Cyrus and Lil Xan: It’s Over… and It’s Very Ugly!

It’s all over for Noah Cyrus and Lil Xan.

The romance between these stars, that is.

But the accusations of infidelity being hurled back and forth? Those are just beginning.

The artists had only been together for a month or so, with Cyrus quick to correct some rumors about the now-failed romance upon alerting her 4.4 million Instagram followers that it has come to an end.

“first and foremost: this relationship was not set up by Columbia Records. to say that is [a] joke,” the 18-year old wrote late Monday, adding:

“it started when I got a DM from Diego [Lil Xan’s real name is Diego Leanos] and he asked me to hang out. the truth is I haven’t seen him in almost a week. every time we tried to hang out something always got in the way.”

So it sounds like the relationship didn’t work because of timing and scheduling issues, right?


Lil Xan, who sources claim is some kind of rapper, wrote yesterday that he was “probably cheated on,” while Cyrus even broke down in tears on her Story.

Noah later explained that she “noticed a hickey” on her boyfriend’s neck during a recent FaceTime call.


“he told me it was just a bruise,” she wrote. “i decided to give him the benefit of the doubt and ignored it.”

The actress continued:

“cheaters like to accuse their partners of cheating to make themselves feel less guilt.

“this isn’t the first time this has happened to me and now im being forced to deal with crazy accusations when im not even sure where all this came from.”

Cyrus went on explain that, in her view, she was there for Lil Xan “dark times.”

She added:

“when you felt alone and like no one was there for you, I was. if this was your way of breaking up with me and breaking my heart along with it, then you’ve succeeded.”

Damn. Poor Noah.

Where does Lil Xan fall on the issue of cheating?

On the opposite side of Cyrus, that’s for sure.

He shared a photo of Cyrus with her arms wrapped around another man and captioned the post:

“call me whatever but if you my girl you ain’t touching no dude like that sorry haha.”

In a video posted on his story, Lil Xan concluded:

“It just hurts, like, so f-cking bad. You think you know somebody, and then you just get used.”

The stars have since unfollowed each other on Instagram.

It really does appear to be over, folks.


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.


Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima: It’s Over! (And It Was Ugly!)

According to a recent report, Kourtney Kardashian and her sister Kim will never be friends again.

As evidenced by a huge fight the siblings got into during the Season 15 premiere of their family’s reality show this past Sunday night, there’s simply too much bad blood at this point between Kourtney and Kim.

Which is a shame.

Because Kourtney could really use as many shoulders to cry on as possible right about now.

For what unfortunate reason?

Multiple outlets have confirmed that Kourtney and her very attractive boyfriend, Younes Bendjima, have gone their separate ways.

This sad news comes on the heels of TMZ posting pictures of Bendjima gets very close and awfully cozy with Jordan Ozuna in Mexico this weekend.

Yes, the same Jordan Ozuna, who used to work at Hooters and who also used to date Tyga and Justin Bieber.

On his Instagram story, Bendjima denied the situation was romantic and denied claims that he cheated on Kardashian, writing to all who would listen/read:

“They really want me to be the bad guy. F-ck your Hollywood bullsh-t, can’t have fun with your friends no more.”

Insiders say that Kourtney pulled the plug on this relationship, perhaps several days ago, around the time that Younes actually called her out for sharing a picture of herself in a thong.

In the Comments section of his then-girlfriend’s Instagram page, Bendjima asked in response to this recent racy picture:

“Thats what you need to show to get likes?”

Harsh, right?

He was allegedly just joking and allegedly just wanted Kourtney’s butt all to himself, but still. Harsh.

As recently as last month, the couple jetted off to Europe for vacationwith the three kids Kourtney gave birth to as a result of sex with Scott Disick:

Mason, 8, Reign, 3, and Penelope, 5.

Things seemed to be going strong between the stars at the time.

So, what changed?

We can’t say for certain.

But a source tells People Magazine that Younes, who is a model remember, never loved how often Kourtney showed off her body on social media.

“He never liked that she posted sexy pictures of herself on social media,” says the source, adding:

“He doesn’t want his girlfriend to do that. He gets that it’s her job, but wants her to post more covered-up pictures. He has always had a problem with this.

“This is the stuff they argue about and what made them split in the past.”

Whatever words were exchanged about Kourtney’s photos, or whatever actions Bendkima took with another woman, People writes that this romance “didn’t end well.”

Kardashian and Bendjima met in Paris in October 2016, actually just one night before Kim Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint.

Bendjima, who is Algerian and speaks fluent French, acted as a translator throughout the ordeal.

It was assumed back then that this would be a mere fling between two single and good-looking people, yet somehow Kourtney and her latest hunk defied the odds.

We never expected them to be together for over a year, certainly.

Now that it’s over, we wish both sides nothing but the best and we also offer up a plea to Kourtney:



Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Jen Harley: Police Report Details Their Ugly, Bloody Brawl

Call us crazy, but we’re just gonna go ahead and say it:

We really don’t think Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Jen Harley are right for each other.

Because they got into a fight weeks ago during which Magro slammed Harley as a cum dumpster and Harley said that Magro was a cokehead?

That was the first sign.

But those were also just words.

On June 24, the tension between this Jersey Shore cast member and his girlfriend (with whom Ronnie shares a three-month old girl named Ariana) boiled over to violence.

As previously reported on The Hollywood Gossip, Harley was arrested on that date for domestic battery after she allegedly beat up Ronnie inside of a car and then dragged him down the road by this same vehicle as he was trying to get out.

The details, as originally described online, were crazy enough.

But now the official police report has been made public and… HOLY FLYING PUNCHES AND BLOODY BRAWLING! It’s nuts.

When police got to the scene on the aforementioned date in Las Vegas, they described Ortiz-Magro as exhibiting “erratic speech, crying, hysterical,” with “irregular breathing.”

There was also “blood all over the center console and inside of the car, as well as smears along the driver side.”

According to Ronnie’s version of events, Harley “hit him in the face with her right fist two-five times.”

The long-time reality star then tried to flee from the vehicle, only for Harley to hit the gas and drag him several feet down the road.

Ronnie “had apparent injuries to his mouth and arms and road rash,” the responding officer says in the report.

Ortiz-Magro proceeded to call Harley to come back and get him, which she did, before Harley pulled over again, taking their three-month-old daughter, Ariana, out of her car seat.

“She explained that she got out of the car asking for help and stated that Ortiz was hitting her in the car,” the report read, adding:

“She explained that she arranged for a friend to come pick up her child before officers arrived.”

What did Harley have to say about all of this?

She told the cops that Ortiz-Magro grabbed the steering wheel while she was behind it, causing her to drive “over the concrete median which flattened the tires on the passenger side.”

The report states that Harley refused medical attention and had a “cut” on her left arm.

She was also “crying [and] hysterical” upon speaking to the officers at the scene.

“Based upon the above facts and circumstances, I have probable cause to believe that a recent mutual battery occurred between both Jennifer Harley and Ronald Ortiz who are in a domestic relationship,” the police report stated.

Harley was considered the aggresor, however, hence her booking for battery.

The Clark County District Attorney’s Office later confirmed to Us Weekly, however, that Harley would not face charges following the altercation “due to insufficient evidence.”

And just in case this doesn’t all sound insane enough, consider:

Jen and Ronnie spent July Fourth together!

We’re glad things have calmed down. We’re glad Ariana’s parents are on decent terms again.

But it’s only a matter of time until things blow up again, let’s be honest.

Ronnie and Jen need to come to an agreement and co-parent Ariana as best they can, without actually being together.


Loser Designer Blasts Selena Gomez as “Ugly,” Fans React in Horror

You can say many things about Selena Gomez.

You can say you don’t like her music because you’re entitled to that opinion.

You can say you she has bad taste in men because Justin Bieber has never treated her well.

You can say she makes poor decisions with her hairstyle at times.

But you cannot say what Stefano Gabbana just said about the singer, not if you want to avoid very deserved backlash from millions of people on social media.

The Italian designer, who co-founded the fashion label label Dolce & Gabbana, went out of his way on Instagram this week to attack Gomez.

In the comments of a photo on The Catwalk Italia’s Instagram account, Gabbana wrote the following alongside a collage of Selena picture:

È proprio brutta!!!

This translates, very simply and extremely rudely, to: She’s so ugly.

The insult was many things; unprovoked, cruel, sexist and objectively untrue.

And while Gomez has thus far taken the high road, refusing to even acknowledge Gabbana’s existence, her friends and fans online have been unable to show similar restraint.

“@stefanobabbana you’re tired and over. your homophobic, misogynistic, body-shaming existence will not thrive in 2018,” Tweeted 13 Reasons Why actor Tommy Dorfman, who plays Ryan Shaver in the Netflix drama.

He added:

“it is no longer tolerable or chic. please take many seats.”

And then there was this from a Gomez follower:

“Shame on you for online bullying. Doesn’t matter if 1 million people see it or 1 person, it’s bullying. It’s wrong.”

And then this from another Gomez follower, who kept it short and simple and supportive:

“We love this beautiful queen.”

Julia Michaels, a singer-songwriter and close friend of Selena’s tweeted:

“@selenagomez just here to tell you that you are one of the most beautiful women I know, inside and out. I love you always.”

This really is true.

While the merits of what Gabbana said are really beside the point, it might as well be pointed out while we’re here:

Selena Gomez is a very pretty young woman. Full stop. This statement really can’t be debated.

the mean comment

Over the years, Gabbana has bullied stars on social media numerous times, including Kate Mossand Victoria Beckham.

Most recently, he went after Kate Moss on the same Catwalk Italia Instagram page, dissing a Saint Laurent look she was wearing … just because.

In 2015, celebrities such as Elton John, Courtney Love and Ricky Martin boycotted the fashion brand over insensitive comments Dolce and Gabbana made about IVF and LGBTQ families.

Moreover, the brand released a $ 245 “#BoycottDolceGabbana” graphic T-shirt inspired by the negative response to First Lady Melania Trump wearing their designs.

In other words: it courts controversy like this.

So the best thing to do is what Selena has done, which is to totally and completely ignore the misguided and pathetic messenger.

This will be the last time we write about him.
