So, it's safe to say that 2017 has been a pretty terrible year to be a celebrity.

Unless you've been living on Mars for the past few weeks, you'll know that a series of allegations against some of Hollywood's top producers and actors has highlighted the issue of sexual harassment like never before – and with new claims coming to light every day, it's hard to know who to trust.

However, one Twitter user has attempted  to shift the focus by asking their followers to tweet some 'nice allegations' about celebrities they have met.

From taking the time to comfort a total stranger, to reading some random person's research paper just because they asked, these little anecdotes will surely restore your faith in Hollywood – at least for now. 

Here's some of our favourites:

As fans of the Kardashian / Jenner family continue to speculate over Kylie's reported pregnancy, word has landed that Kylie's older sister, Khloé, is also expecting.

Khloé, who is in a relationship with Tristan Thompson, is reportedly thrilled by the news, with sources confirming as much to media outlets.

"Khloe is so happy, you have no idea," one source told E! News.

Another source speaking to PEOPLE confirmed the same, saying: "Yes, Khloe and Tristan are expecting and they are absolutely thrilled."

"This isn’t something they were in a rush to announce to the whole world, and it’s only been in just the past week or so that they’ve felt comfortable telling most of their inner circle," the source added.

With the press and public scrutinising Kylie's every move since word landed that the reality star is due her first child, insiders have revealed that her 33-year-old sister has attempted to play down the rumours.

“Things were complicated a bit by Kylie’s announcement as they don’t want to be seen as intruding on that moment for her but it is now reaching a point where Khloe doesn’t want to be openly lying to people, and just staying quiet isn’t going to work anymore," the source added.

Revealing that Khloé's inner circle are busy celebrating the news, the family source continued: "This is such a wonderful moment for her: not only is she going to be a mother, she is going to be raising a child with a man she truly loves. Everyone is over the moon for them both."

Interestingly, Keeping up with the Kardashians producer, Jeffrey Jenkins, has reached out to the star on Instagram, writing: "Congrats my beautiful Khloe! You will be a great mom! God bless you all three!"

However, like Kylie, Khloé has yet to confirm the reports personally, so Twitter is understandably feeling a little impatient…

It's been more than a decade since Hollywood's golden couple parted ways, and yet the public is still absolutely fascinated by the dynamics of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston's relationship.

Indeed, when news broke that Brad and his second wife, Angelina Jolie, decided to part ways last year, the internet was awash with memes suggesting that Jennifer Aniston was positively celebrating the news.

And while the former Friends star, who married Justin Theroux in 2015, has undoubtedly moved on with her life, recent reports suggest that the heartbreak born of her divorce still runs deep.

According to In Touch Weekly, Brad decided to reach out to Jennifer in recent days in an effort to apologise for any hurt caused during or after their marriage, and it sounds like Jennifer had a hard time dealing with the conversation.

"It was the most intimate conversation Brad and Jen have ever had," a source told the US publication.

And, unsurprisingly, 48-year-old Jen, who never made any secret of the upset she felt enduring such a high-profile break-up, struggled to keep her composure during the exchange.

"Jen was overcome with emotion," the source continued. "All the hurt feelings and resentment she'd suppressed for years came flooding to the surface, and she broke down in tears."

In addition to apologising to Jennifer for being an 'absentee husband' during their marriage between 2000 and 2004, Brad reportedly 'made amends for leaving her for Angelina'.

So, last night P!nk was crowned the proud winner of the 2017 Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Music Awards.

After taking to the stage to receive the acclaimed accolade, the artist decided to shape her acceptance speech around a conversation she shared with her daughter recently.

In a revealing speech, the F*cking Perfect singer explained that her six-year-old daughter had called herself the 'ugliest girl I know'.

"I look like a boy with long hair," Willow added at the time.

Stunned by both her daughter's candour and lack of self-belief, P!nk decided to use world-famous artists to teach her daughter that refusing to follow the crowd when it comes to a gender-specific appearance is something to celebrate.

"I went home and I made a power point presentation for her. And, in that presentation, were androgynous rock stars and artists that live their truth."

"These are artists like Michael Jackson, David bowie, Freddie Mercury, Annie Lennox, Prince, Janis Joplin, and George Michael, Elton John — so many artists," she told a visibly emotional audience.

P!nk then used her own experience in the music industry to remind her daughter that she refused to succumb to criticism over her image.

"I said to her, “Do you see me growing my hair?” She said, “No mama.” I said, “Do you see me changing my body?” “No, mama.” “Do you see me changing the way I present myself to the world?” “No, mama."

And then the kicker.

“Do you see me selling out arenas all over the world?” “Yes, mama.” P!nk said as applause rang out through the crowd.

P!nk's speech has, unsurprisingly, had Twitter users in a heap, as they went online and paid tribute to the the singer's heartfelt tibute to her daughter.

Ellen De Generes, who presented the singer with the award, took to Twitter in the aftermath, writing: "Congratulations on your Vanguard Award. From now on I’m gonna spell my name El!en. I love u."

Oh, and in case you missed it, here it is…

It's been 20 years since Ellen DeGeneres made the decision to come out as gay, and while she was lauded in some circles for her courage at the time, the fall-out from the announcement sent the much-loved TV presenter into a severe depression.

Speaking to Good Housekeeping, Ellen, who used her then sitcom as a platform for her announcement, revealed that the months that followed her admission were some of the toughest of her life.

"I moved out of L.A., went into a severe depression, started seeing a therapist and had to go on antidepressants for the first time in my life," the 59-year-old explained.

"The bullying I endured in Hollywood after I came out made up for the lack of it during my childhood," she added.

In the year that followed Ellen's announcement in April 1997, her show was cancelled which understandably wreaked havoc on both her personal and professional life.

"It was scary and lonely. All I’d known for 30 years was work, and all of a sudden I had nothing,” she admits.

And it wasn't just fear that Ellen experienced during this time, but a deep sense of injustice at the reaction her announcement garnered from the public.

"I was mad. It didn’t feel fair – I was the same person everyone had always known," she argued.

Thankfully, the Louisiana native made a valiant attempt to turn her life around, and explains that she sought solace in meditation, exercise and writing, saying: "Eventually I started meditating, working out and writing again, and I slowly started to climb out of it."

The woman described by Ellen in the interview is a far cry from the confident, upbeat and insanely popular presenter she is today.

Happily married and the face of one of the best-loved chat shows in the States, Ellen insists: "I can’t believe I came back from that point. I can’t believe where my life is now.”

After living the vast majority of her life as a Scientologist, popular actress, Leah Remini, left the controversial church in 2013.

Following this decision, which has made countless headlines over the course of the last four years, Leah has dedicated a large portion of her life to speaking out against the so-called religion.

From presenting and producing documentary series, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, to penning an autobiography detailing her time in the church, the 40-year-old star has been more than candid about her experiences.

And with many high-profile names still affiliated with the religion, it's no surprise that the King of Queens actress is often grilled on the effect her departure has had on previous relationships.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Leah revealed that her former friend and current Scientologist, Elisabeth Moss, is forbidden from speaking to her on account of the organisation's doctrines.

"Elisabeth believes that she can't talk to me," Leah said. "There's a thing in Scientology called 'acceptable truth.' It means you only say what's acceptable to the public.”

"Moss believes that I'm an antisocial personality, because I've spoken out against Scientology," she added. "So she isn't allowed to talk to me.“

Leah, who became part of the organisation at the age of eight, insists she understands the predicament The Handmaid's Tale star finds herself in, adding: “And me knowing that, I wouldn't put her in the awkward position."

While Leah understands Elisabeth's compulsion to adhere to the organisation's doctrines, the actress refuses to pussyfoot around her impression of her former church.

“I don't hold anything against Elisabeth Moss other than she's continuing to support a group that is abusive and destroying families," Leah continued. "That's for her to learn, just as I needed to learn it."

Elisabeth refuses to discuss her fate during interviews, aside from saying she has benefited hugely from its teachings.

As countless members of the entertainment industry came to terms with the passing of Hollywood icon, Sam Shepard, this week, former co-star, Matthew McConaughey, only learned of the actor's demise during a red carpet appearance.

While doing press for his latest film The Dark Tower, Matthew was asked for a few words on the actor he starred alongside in Mud, and appeared shellshocked to hear that the 73-year-old had died that day.

"Today was a sad day with the passing of Sam Shepard," the reporter began. "You guys worked together on Mud..."

Looking like the reporter's words had only just registered with him, Matthew interruped: "What? Sam Shepard moved on?"

Pressing his hand to his forehead, he continued: "Gosh damn it. From what?"

Taking a moment to compose himself, Matthew paid tribute to the 73-year-old actor in footage which has been trending online since yesterday.

"I didn’t tell anybody," said Charlize Theron when reflecting on the night her mother killed her father in self-defence on their family farm in Johannesburg.

Speaking recently to radio DJ, Howard Stern, the Oscar-winning actress explained that the incident, which took place in August 1991, was an extremely difficult situation to accept, let alone explain to others.

“I just pretended like it didn’t happen.  I didn’t want to tell anybody," she said.

"Whenever anybody asked me, I said my dad died in a car accident. Who wants to tell that story? Nobody wants to tell that story.”

Charlize was 16-years-old when her father, who was an alcoholic, physically attacked her mother and threatened Charlize's safety.

Responding to the threat, Charlize's mother shot and killed her husband in a move which was later ruled to have been self-defence, and did not result in any legal charges.

"I have an incredible mother," the Monster star told Howard. "She’s a huge inspiration in my life."

"She’s never really had therapy," Charlize continued. "Her philosophy was ‘This is horrible. Acknowledge that this is horrible. Now make a choice. Will this define you? Are you going to sink or are you going to swim?’ That was it."

Charlize, now 41-years-old, explained that her childhood was marred hugely by the uncertainty which often accompanies life with an alcoholic parent.

Recalling her formative years, she remembered: "Not knowing how my day was going to go and all of it dependent on somebody else and whether he was not going to drink or drink.”

Honing in on that night in August 1991, Charlize insisted that neither she nor her mother would allow the horror to define them.

"I think both of us have dealt with that night really well. I think both of us still have to deal with the life that we had –  and that’s what people don’t really realise. It’s not just about what happened one night."

Shia LaBeouf has taken to social media in the aftermath of his arrest at the weekend in an effort to apologise for his actions.

The Transformers star, who was arrested for drunkenness, disorderly conduct and obstruction in Georgia, claimed at the time that he had been arrested for 'being white'.

The actor, whose behaviour was captured on film, can be seen focussing his attention on a black police officer, saying: "You're going to hell, straight to hell, bro."

Commenting on his behaviour, Shia took to Twitter last night and acknowledged the severity of the incident.

"I am deeply ashamed of my behaviour and make no excuses for it," he began in a post which has been liked 25,000 times.

"I don't know if these statements are too frequent, or not shared often enough, but I am certain that my actions warrant a very sincere apology to the arresting officers, and I am grateful for their restraint."

"The severity of my behaviour is not lost on me," he continued.

"My outright disrespect for authority is problematic to say the least, and completely destructive to say the worst. It is a new low."

"A low I hope is a bottom. I have been struggling with addiction publicly for far too long, and I am actively taking steps towards securing my sobriety and hope I can be forgiven for my mistakes."

"No one is perfect we all make mistakes Shia, just get help and get better," responded one follower.

"I hope the best for you. Being broken, and humble is the absolute best place to be (though painful) I hope you find your way," added another.

Shia's altercation with the police took place in the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department.

Lorde's second album has just dropped, but unfortunately for the singer, the press and public are currently more interested in remarks she made about her friendship with Taylor Swift.

In a recent interview with The Guardian, the New Zealand-native attempted to explain the dynamic of her relationship with the Out of the Woods singer, but she didn't exactly choose her words carefully.

Referring to the fact that Taylor's high-profile status makes standard BFF activities a little difficult, Lorde made an ill-advised comparison to autoimmune conditions.

"It’s like having a friend with very specific allergies," she surmised in a particularly odd analogy.

"There are certain places you can’t go together. Certain things you can’t do," she continued. "There are these different sets of considerations within the friendship. It’s like having a friend with an autoimmune disease."

And Twitter is unsurprisingly far from impressed with the comparison.

Taking to social media to berate the singer for her 'insensitive' comments, members of the public wasted no time highlighting the incongruity of the singer's questionable comparison.
 

 

 

Following the backlash, Lorde took to Twitter to both apologise and clarify her remarks with Twitter users who demanded Lorde acknowledge the insensitivity of her comments.

"Didn't mention Taylor, but regardless, I f*cked up and that was really insensitive. I'm sorry," she wrote in response to one person's outrage.

According to emerging reports, Simon Cowell is in the process of organising a charity record to pay tribute to those affected by the Grenfell Tower tragedy this week.

The music mogul took to Twitter in the aftermath of Wednesday's blaze and expressed his sympathies over the incident which has, thus far, claimed the lives of 17 people.

"I am watching the footage of the Grenfell Tower fire in London. Heartbreaking," he wrote in a tweet last night.

In a move which has garnered considerable support, Simon went on to write: "We hope to confirm a record tomorrow which will raise some money for the many people affected by this tragedy. Making calls tonight."

While it is not yet clear which artists will feature on the charity record, Simon is adamant that anyone in a position to help should do so.

Speaking to Good Morning Britain hosts, Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid, he said; "For all of us living in the vicinity, we have the ability to do something. I just thought what do you do? First of all you can raise some money and that’s important."

“Secondly, what I hope will happen is that it will send a message to those involved that there’s an awful lot of people who care very much about what you’re going through.”

Acknowledging his global status, he added: “For me in my position not to do something would be appalling. It sent chills through me. I do genuinely believe this will make a difference.”

Stars including Adele, Rita Ora and Lily Allen have made trips to the scene of Wednesday's blaze in an effort to comfort members of the community.
