Rihanna breaks up with Matt Kemp [Rumor Mill]

Rihanna's latest album. (Def Jam) Rihanna is reportedly single again after breaking up with Matt Kemp, the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder she's been dating for the past year. An "insider" tells Us Weekly that Kemp was, "sick of always following after her like a puppy dog all over the world. He wants something more normal." Well that sounds credible. Umm. Rihanna couldn't be reached for comment, but if true, the split would only add to the recent spate of celebrity break-ups (ScarJo/Ryan Gosling, Michael C. Hall/Jennifer Carpenter, Zac Efron/Vanessa Hudgens). Source: Us Weekly...

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie planning Indian wedding? [Rumor Mill]

Are the stars of 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith' set to officially become Mr. and Mrs. Pitt? Could 2011's planned wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton be eclipsed by the marriage of Hollywood royalty Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie? The Times of India is reporting that Brangelina are planning a Hindu wedding in the Indian province of Rajasthan next year under the guidance of spiritual guru Ram Lal Siyag: The Siddha Yoga guru, who is said to have played a key role in bringing peace and harmony into the jet-set lives of Jolie and Pitt, is unconcerned about his name being bandied about in the western media. His disciples, too, refuse to disclose any detail about the glamour wedding. The news websites also reported that Guru Siyag initiated the star couple into the Hindu way of life by giving them a mantra, which they are to recite every morning...

Rumor Mill: Was Britney Spears beaten by her boyfriend?

(Courtesy Star magazine) It's been a while since we've had any drama from one-time train wreck Britney Spears. But Star magazine, in an issue out this week, claims Spears was hit by former agent/current boyfriend Jason Trawick and that she was once pregnant with his child. From what reliable source did Star receive this bombshell of a story? Spears's ex-husband. No, not Kevin Federline. The other one -- Jason Alexander, to whom she was married for 55 hours back in 2004. Alexander claims that Spears keeps in touch via phone, e-mail and texts and that she recently confided that Trawick "hit her so hard it gave her a black eye." Alexander, it should be noted, says he sold told his story to Star because he's "really concerned" for Britney. Representatives for both Spears and Trawick denied the abuse allegations when contacted by Radar Online, but the site claims to...

Rumor Mill: Is Christina Aguilera pregnant?

Aguilera at the Nov. 15 'Burlesque' premiere. (AP) I'm skeptical. But since it is heating up Google trends this morning, I am duty bound to pass along the wild speculation that -- thanks to a flowy red carpet dress and a glitzy on-stage cummerbund -- Christina Aguilera is expecting her second child. Why? What evidence do we have? Well, Aguilera has put on a little weight in the past couple of months. Which still makes her skinner than most women by orders of magnitude. But, according to Famecrawler, "during parts of her performance at [last night's] American Music Awards, Christina Aguilera did look a bit fuller in the mid-section." Which, of course, must mean she's pregnant and did not, say, load up on tacos and Mountain Dew earlier in the day. Aguilera is also currently in the divorcing husband Jordan Bratman, with whom she has one son. Watch the...

Rumor Mill: Pink is pregnant

An utterly bumpless Pink in 2009. (AP) On Tuesday, I passed up the opportunity to further spread photos of Pink sporting what some breathless bloggers ID'd as a "baby bump," since said bump was approximately the size of a burrito Pink may or may not have ingested prior to stepping in front of the lens of a prying paparazzo. But since Pink bump watch has now moved up to DEF-CON 2, we are duty bound to report on the rumor. Us Weekly is claiming in their latest issue that the singer, 31, and husband Carey Hart, 35, are expecting their first child. According to Us's unnamed source, the pregnancy was planned. "She's 12 weeks along," said the insider to Us. "She wanted to do it between tours, when she has some time off." Back in April, a rep for Pink denied the singer was expecting after she was photographed...

Rumor Mill: Engagement hype ramps back up for Prince William and Kate Middleton

Prince William and girlfriend Kate Middleton at the wedding of their friends Harry Mead and Rosie Bradford in October. (AP) Are Prince William and longtime girlfriend Kate Middleton inching closer to an engagement? That's the word from both Radar Online and the U.K.'s Daily Mail -- in other words, not the best of sources. But, still, it's a slowish Monday morning so we'll play with this for a bit. What exactly has these two bastions of public information so convinced that a royal engagement is imminent? The clues: Radar Online claims that "recent developments" mean the couple will announce their intention to marry... sometime between now and February. "Recent developments" would apparently include the Daily Mail's report and the fact that "London betting parlors are getting in on the action." Whatever that means....
