Well, Tristan Thompson and Khloé Kardashian have gone through the roughest of patches. Like cacti-level patches.

Speculation is always rife on the status of their current relationship, with "it's complicated" being the normal response.

The cheating scandal caused a massive amount of controversy, especially seeing as the sh*t hit the fan while Khloé was heavily pregnant. *rage cries*

Then there were reports that he cheated on her AGAIN. The latest concrete news was that the Kardashian clan star was trying to make it work for the sake of baby True.

Now, according to Entertainment Tonight, they're back to being heart-eyes with each other.

A source alleges that;

"Her relationship with Tristan is so good. They made it through some really dark times, but she's happy that she gave him a second chance because he's stepped up and is not only an amazing father to True, but he's been such a rock for Khloé. They're really just so in love."

Despite the fact that Khloé's family are understandably sceptical about his actions and intentions, the source emphasises that they are in "such a good place now" as well as the fact that Khloé has "never been happier".

The reality star certainly seems to be glowing with the happiness of a new mother, her dream of having a child finally became a reality.

Well, the family won't be spending Christmas together, and if Tristan cheats again, you can bet there'll be hell to pay from Khloé's followers.


Gossip Girl's Ed Westwick will not face charges of sexual assault due to a lack of evidence, says US prosecutors. 

The 31-year-old was accused of various sexual assault allegations from three different women.

However, Los Angeles prosecutors said in new documents that the allegations would not be pursued due to insufficient evidence.

In November 2017, the actor Kristina Cohen accused Ed through a detailed Facebook post.

Former actor Aurélie Wynn also came forward alongside Kristina and provided witnesses.

“Those witnesses were not able to provide information that would enable the prosecution to prove either incident beyond a reasonable doubt,” the memo read.

“Prosecution on those two incidents is declined due to insufficient evidence,” the memo added.

A third accuser was referenced within the memo but her case was dropped because of her “unavailability”.

Accusations from further women of reported unwanted touching could not be held up due to falling outside the statute of limitations, reports the Guardian.

Ed has maintained his innocence after the first allegation became public.

In a now-deleted Instagram post, the actor said: “I have never forced myself in any manner, on any woman."


Nev Schulman, the main man of MTV's hit programme Catfish: The TV show, is trying to move on after he was wrongly accused of sexual misconduct.

Pending investigations halted production of the TV show in June, after a woman who previously starred in the show accused the host of making inappropriate and sexual comments to her whilst filming. 

MTV has now said those claims were not "credible and are without merit".

Nev spoke to PEOPLE about how he's trying to get on with life after the ordeal. 

“I’m doing much better now…It was a really difficult time for me, as much for my wife and my family. It was tough.”

The presenter continued to explain how he strives to live an honest, good life which means taking responsibility for his actions.

“I’ve lived a number of different lives in my 33 years. I’ve experienced different things, I’ve been in different social circles and I’ve made mistakes. I’ve been very honest about those and I’ve been accountable, I’ve apologised and done everything I could to make right where I may have wronged.

I’ve been judged for those mistakes — publicly and privately. That’s tough and doesn’t feel good but it’s important and something I’ve made part of my life,” he explained.

During the time the allegations were being looked into, the 33-year-old detailed just how difficult it was, but he always had endless support to help him through.

“To be accused of something that I squarely did not do and to have the harsh judgment that followed and no way to counteract or do something in the moment to correct that was very difficult,” he replies.

“It was frustrating. I just felt so powerless.” 

“Luckily I had the amazing support of the fans of the show but also of my colleagues, the crew…Several people who had been on the show actually reached out to me and offered to speak up in my support if necessary. I’m just so thankful and grateful to everyone.”

In May, Nev denied the allegations of sexual misconduct by a woman he has chosen not to name, but who did appear on the show. 

In a statement to PEOPLE, the host said:

“The behaviour described in this video did not happen and I’m fortunate that there are a number of former colleagues who were present during this time period who are willing to speak up with the truth."

“I have always been transparent about my life and would always take responsibility for my actions — but these claims are false.”

Catfish will be returning to our TV screens tonight for a 7th series. 

We for one will definitely be tuning in – the withdrawal has been real. 


Harvey Weinstein is said to be considering legal action after Uma Thurman claimed he attacked her in a London hotel room 25 years ago. 

Speaking to The New York Times, the actress claimed the disgraced producer assaulted her following the release of the Weinstein-funded Pulp Fiction, and recalled another incident in which he threatened to ruin her career. 

He denies any wrongdoing and says he is "stunned and saddened" by the allegations.

Uma told the paper how Weinstein tried to shove himself on top of her and attempted to expose himself. 

“He did all kinds of unpleasant things,” she said. “But he didn’t actually put his back into it and force me. You’re like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard."

“I was doing anything I could to get the train back on the track. My track. Not his track.”

She went on to say how she told Pulp Fiction director, Quentin Tarantino, about the alleged incident and he confronted the producer at Cannes Film Festival in 2001. 

Hours later, Weinstein apologised, though Uma was not convinced. 

“I just walked away stunned, like ‘ok, well there’s my half-assed apology’.”

A spokesperson for Weinstein says he "misread" Uma's signals. 

“Mr. Weinstein acknowledges making a pass at Ms. Thurman in England after misreading her signals in Paris. He immediately apologised.”

Criminal investigations are underway on both sides of the Atlantic following a number of sexual assault allegations against the former Hollywood big shot. 



Al Porter has broken his silence after a patient at a Dublin psychiatric hospital claimed they were groped by the comedian during a charity visit, 

Last November, a number of people came forward alleging that the former Today FM DJ had acted inappropriately towards them. 

Among these was a young man who said Al had touched and kissed him during a visit to St Patrick's Mental Health hospital in 2015. 

A statement form the comic's legal team says he is co-operating fully with inquiries, adding that the star "categorically denies the allegation of criminal wrongdoing."

An investigation was launched after the former patient lodged a complaint and although St Patrick's say they found nothing of concern, the victim has now asked for an outside investigator to be brought in. 

A source at the facility told The Sunday Mirror: “You can’t investigate a claim that wasn’t known about – it was made over two years after the alleged incident.

"From a hospital care point of view, we had to ensure we didn’t miss any alarms raised – that all patients were looked after in line with procedure at all times.”

According to reports, the showbiz star, from Tallaght in South Dublin, is estimated to have lost work worth €500,000 since the claims came to light late last year. 


Seal has spoken out over recent sexual assault allegations after his former neighbour claimed he groped and 'forced himself on her.'

The singer's representatives say he “vehemently denies the recent allegations made against him”, insisting that he “intends to vigorously defend himself” against the claims.

According to TMZ, Tracey Birdsall filed a police report on Saturday, January 13, after reading an Instagram post in which Seal labelled Oprah a hypocrite, suggesting that she had known about the Harvey Weinstein scandal for years.

Speaking to the online gossip site, Tracey explained how she and Seal “developed a close friendship” when they became neighbours in 2016.

She then told reporters that the star forced himself on her after insinuating that she was “asking for it” with her choice of clothing.

Despite expressing her discomfort the singer then began to grope her breasts and forcefully kiss her.

Shocked by the event that had just unfolded, Tracey claims that she and Seal then sat down on his couch before he once again belittled her for what she was wearing and continued to grope her.

According to reports, the situation is currently under investigation by the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.


US actor Aziz Ansari has responded to allegations that he sexually assaulted a young woman on a date last year, saying he believed the encounter was “completely consensual”.

The Master of None star, who recently won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy Television series, admitted he was “surprised and concerned” by the woman's claims.

The 23-year-old woman shared a detailed account of the night in question during an interview with Babe magazine, describing the events as “violating and painful”.

She alleged that the 34-year-old actor had ignored numerous verbal and non-verbal cues signalling her discomfort throughout the night.

"Most of my discomfort was expressed in me pulling away and mumbling. I know that my hand stopped moving at some points," she recalled.

She went onto say how Aziz apologised the next day, sending a text in which he admitted he had “misread things in the moment,” adding that he was “truly sorry”.

In a statement to Babe magazine, the actor said: “I took her words to heart and responded privately after taking the time to process what she had said.”

“I continue to support the movement that is happening in our culture. It is necessary and long overdue.”

The woman was prompted to speak up after she noticed that Aziz has worn a pin in support of the Time's Up campaign on the Golden Globes carpet last week.

The initiative, fronted by some of Hollywood's most influential female stars, was created to help those that have suffered sexual abuse or harassment in the workplace.


James Franco has spoken publicly for the first time following multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.

In recent weeks, a number of women have come forward claiming that the actor acted inappropriately towards them.

In a series of now deleted tweets, actress Ally Sheedy, who James directed in an Off Broadway production of The Long Shift, asked why the actor was even allowed to attend the Golden Globes ceremony, let alone win the Best Actor actor award for his performance in The Disaster Artist.

“James Franco just won. Please never ask me why I left the film/tv business,” she wrote.

“Ok wait. Bye. Christian Slater and James Franco at a table on @goldenglobes #MeToo”

Finishing of the thread, Ally asked: “Why is a man hosting? Why is James Franco allowed in? Said too much. Nite love ya #goldenglobes.” (sic)

Also speaking out against Franco was Violet Paley, who claimed that the 39-year-old actor had assaulted her in the back of a car and aksed her friend to come to his hotel room when she was just 17.

Violet followed with another tweet saying how James had called to offer her an "apology," though she did not accept. 

During an appearance on Tuesday's The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, James was asked to address the claims that had been made against him after he was heavily criticised for wearing a Time’s Up pin in support of sexual harassment and assault awareness at the Golden Globe Awards.

“I haven’t read them. I’ve heard about them,” he told the host.

“I have no idea what I did to Ally Sheedy, I directed her in a play Off-Broadway. I had nothing but a great time with her, total respect for her. I have no idea why she was upset.”

“She took the tweet down. I don’t know. I can’t speak for her, I don’t know.”

He went on to say how the allegations were not accurate, claiming that he prides himself on being able to take responsibility for his actions.

“The others… look, in my life, I pride myself on taking responsibility for things that I’ve done. I have to do that to maintain my well-being. I do it whenever I know that there is something wrong or needs to be changed, I make it a point to do it,” the Oscar-nominated star said.

“The things that I heard that were on Twitter are not accurate, but I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice because they didn’t have a voice for so long,” he continued.

“So I don’t want to, you know, shut them down in any way. It’s, I think, a good thing and I support it.”

Adding: “They had a lot to say, and I’m here to listen and learn and change my perspective where it’s off, and I’m completely willing and want to.”


According to numerous reports emerging Stateside, a commemorative screening of 1997 film, Wag the Dog, acted as a catalyst for a very heated debate between veteran actor, Dustin Hoffman, and HBO host, John Oliver.

Hoffman, who was recently accused of sexual harassment by a teen he worked alongside in 1985, was forced to defend himself against the allegations in addition to the statement he issued in the wake of the accusations.

As more and more harrowing stories emerge from within the entertainment industry, John Oliver clearly felt it would be remiss not to address Hoffman's role in the scandal.

Referring to Anna Graham Hunter's accusations against him, John said: "This is something we’re going to have to talk about because … it’s hanging in the air."

Responding to the remark, Hoffman said: "It’s hanging in the air? From a few things you’ve read you’ve made an incredible assumption about me."

Refusing to back down, John took issue with Hoffman's initial response to the allegations, where he claimed they were 'not reflective' of who he is.

"It’s that kind of response to this stuff that pisses me off,” John said. "It is reflective of who you were. You’ve given no evidence to show that it didn’t happen. There was a period of time when you were a creeper around women."

“It feels like a cop-out to say, ‘this isn’t me.’" John argued. "Do you see how this feels like a dismissal?”

Hoffman argued that Anna's decision to wait a considerable amount of time before coming forward points to his innocence, saying: "Well, there’s a point in her not bringing it up for 40 years."

Speaking to the audience in the wake of the exceedingly heated debate, John insisted that he felt compelled to address the issue as a broadcaster.

In not doing so, John would have berated himself, saying: "That leads to me at home later tonight hating myself, asking, "Why the f*** didn't I say something? No one stands up to powerful men.'"

Hoffman is just one in a worrying number of high-profile men who have been accused of sexual harassment, assault and rape within the entertainment industry.


British actor, Ed Westwick, has been accused of sexual assault by a third woman in recent days.

Rachel Eck has come forward with her own allegations against the Gossip Girl star just a week after Kristina Cohen and Aurélie Wynn claimed they were attacked by Westwick in separate incidents.

Speaking to BuzzFeed, Rachael claimed that on the night before the Academy Awards in 2014, she received a text message from her ex-boyfriend, Kaine Harling, inviting her to join him in a Hollywood hotel.

Upon arriving, Rachel, who was 23 at the time of the alleged incident, was greeted by Kaine and introduced to Westwick who she claims she wasn't familiar with at the time.

Rachel recalls that the night immediately turned sour when she declined Westwick's invitation to invite a friend of hers to join them in the hotel.

"When I didn’t bring a girl for him he turned his sights on me.” she told BuzzFeed.

According to Rachel, Westwick attempted to kiss her, push her against the wall and grope her breasts whenever her ex-boyfriend left the room.

“Ed then pulled me onto the bed and aggressively groped me,” she said. “I shoved him off as quickly as I could and left. I have never felt so uncomfortable in a situation like that in my entire life."

Rachel, whose claims have been reinforced by individuals she confided in at the time, asserts that she chose to speak publicly after learning that she wasn't alone in her encounter with the actor.

Westwick has strenuously denied the allegations which have been levelled against him.


The number of stories emerging from Hollywood, which tell a distinctly different story to the glamorous one we've been fed for decades, appear to be increasing with every passing day.

With Harvey Weinstein and James Toback dominating the headlines for most of October, focus has now turned to Kevin Spacey and Andy Dick.

Indeed, the latter has just been fired from the set of upcoming movie, Raising Buchanan, due to allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct.

The actor and comic, who has appeared in Old School, Zoolander, and Funny People as well as TV shows including Arrested Development, 2 Broke Girls and Love, has spoken out since his dismissal.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, he said: "I don’t grope people anymore. I don’t expose myself anymore. I do understand that the temperature in the world right now is delicate."

According to The Washington Times, Dick has been accused of groping people’s genitals, unwanted kissing and licking and making sexual advances on at least four members of the production.

Dick has made a point of playing down the rumours, saying “I might have kissed somebody on the cheek to say goodbye and then licked them."

"That’s my thing," he added. "I licked Carrie Fisher at a roast. It’s me being funny. I’m not trying to sexually harass people."



Renowned photographer, Terry Richardson, has reportedly been dropped by a number of leading fashion magazines amid allegations of inappropriate behaviour on set.

The 52-year-old is known for his sexually explicit imagery and has been accused of sexual harassment in the past – though he has continually denied the these allegations.

A recent article published in The Sunday Times posed the question; “Why is Terry Richardson still feted by fashionistas?,” and argued that the fashion industry should take a stand against the accused, just like women in Hollywood have done against producer, Harvey Weinstein.

And now, according to The Telegraph, executive president and chief operating officer of Conde Nast International, James Woolhouse, has called on the presidents’ of magazines including Vogue, GQ, Glamour and Vanity Fair, to cancel any work they had planned with the photographer.

The email, reportedly sent on Monday morning, read: “I am writing to you on an important matter. Condé Nast would like to no longer work with the photographer Terry Richardson.”

“Please could you confirm that this policy will be actioned in your market effective immediately. Thank you for your support in this matter.”

The father-of-three has worked with many high-profile stars including Beyoncé, Rhianna and Lady Gaga, and has directed a number of music videos including Miley Cyrus' Wrecking Ball.

Terry previously adressed the claims made against him in a 2014 Huffington Post article, saying: “I collaborated with consenting adult women who were fully aware of the nature of the work, and as is typical with any project, everyone signed releases.

“I have never used an offer of work or a threat of rebuke to coerce someone into something that they did not want to do.”

Both Terry and Conde Nast International are yet to issue statements about the reported dismissal.
