Pop star Selena Gomez has sparked rumours she has moved on from her on/off relationship with Justin Bieber after spending her 22nd birthday on vacation with a new man. The Come and Get It hitmaker celebrated her big day on Tuesday (22Jul14) by relaxing on a yacht off the coast of St. Tropez in France with model pal Cara Delevingne, and photographers were there to snap her celebrations at sea, which included several embraces with businessman Tommy Chiabra.
In one shot, Gomez is pictured wrapped in a towel as she leans back into the arms of Chiabra on the deck of the luxury boat, and, in another snap, the birthday girl holds on to her rumoured new beau as they ride a jet ski.
She fuelled the romance gossip by linking arms with Chiabra later that evening as they enjoyed a night out in St. Tropez, reports the New York Daily News.
The singer has yet to comment on the latest dating reports, but she took time out of her day to express her gratitude to her Twitter.com fans for their birthday wishes.
She wrote, "Thank you SO much for my birthday wishes this has been the BEST birthday yet! THANK YOU!!!!"
Gomez and Bieber, who initially split last year (13), were last spotted together in June (14), when they paid a visit to the Los Angeles Zoo.
However, he appeared to have moved on again earlier this month (Jul14) after sharing pictures of himself cuddling model Yovanna Ventura with fans online.
Chiabra was previously linked to Gossip Girl actress Jessica Szohr.
Director Michael Moore is single again after finalising his divorce from his producer wife Kathleen Glynn. The Fahrenheit 9/11 filmmaker moved to end the 21-year marriage in June, 2013, and the split was made official in Antrim County Circuit Court in Michigan on Tuesday (22Jul14).
The couple wed in 1991. They have no children together.
Steve Irwin's teenage daughter has blasted the Crocodile Hunter star's cameraman for detailing her father's final moments in a recent Australian TV interview, insisting he was "wrong" to make the adventurer's family relive the tragedy eight years after his death. Justin Lyons opened up about the freak stingray attack which claimed Irwin's life in September, 2006 in a candid chat with presenters on morning show Studio 10 earlier this year (14), choking back tears as he recalled his pal's final words.
He said, "I was saying to him things like, 'Think of your kids, Steve'. He just sort of calmly looked up at me and said, 'I'm dying'.
"It was seconds but it felt like forever. Even if we had been able to get him to an emergency ward at that moment, we probably wouldn't have been able to save him because the damage to his heart was so massive."
Bindi Irwin has since revealed she was disgusted by Lyons' decision to go ahead with the broadcast. She did not tune into the show when it aired in March (14) and has vowed never to watch the footage.
She tells America's People magazine, "It's really hurtful, and as long as I live I'll never listen to it. It's wrong as a family for us to hear about it."
Bindi's comments emerged during her first in depth interview since her father's death and she admits the pain of losing her beloved dad haunts her to this day.
She says, "I remember after we lost dad, so many adults came up to me and said, 'Honey, time heals all wounds'. That is the biggest lie you will ever hear. It doesn't. That part of you is gone forever. Time softens things, so now when I think back about dad and the amazing memories we had together, I'm happy. But that kind of sadness never goes away. It's like losing a piece of your heart that you never get back."
Singer Lana Del Rey has blamed her battle with "depression and insecurity" for ruining her relationship with rocker boyfriend Barrie-James O'neill. The couple recently split after three years together, and she was spotted with a new man, photographer Francesco Carrozzini, on a trip to Italy earlier this month (Jul14).
Del Rey has now opened up about the breakdown of her relationship with the former Kassidy star, blaming herself for "demolishing" the romance.
She tells America's Complex magazine, "(I destroyed) the relationship I've been in for the last three years. Definitely demolished that through tons of depression and insecurity. Now it's just an untenable relationship, impossible because of my emotional instability... I am a little f**ked up. This whole experience has f**ked me up... It's been hard."
Del Rey goes on to admit her emotional problems started following her rise to fame, adding, "I was in a good place when I wrote my first record because I wrote it for fun, but then I felt like everything that went with the record was heavy. I was also trying to deal with stuff with my family. The world was heavy for a couple (of) years."
Shamed rocker Ian Watkins has lost his bid to appeal against his 35-year jail sentence for child sex offences. The former Lostprophets frontman was ordered to serve at least 29 years behind bars before he can apply for early release after he was convicted of a number of sickening charges, including the attempted rape of a baby.
Watkins, 36, moved to challenge his lengthy sentence, but his bid was rejected by a panel of judges at Cardiff Crown Court in Wales on Wednesday (23Jul14). They ruled he does not have grounds to appeal against his prison term.
Lord Justice Pritchard, one of the three judges sitting at Cardiff Crown Court, ruled, "These were offences against infant children of such shocking depravity that a very lengthy sentence of imprisonment was demanded, not withstanding the absence of physical injury. It is not demonstrated that the total sentence of 29 years together with the extended licence period was arguably manifestly excessive. Accordingly, the application in his case is refused."
The singer was convicted last year (13) after he pleaded guilty to 13 charges.
"Wow! Can't believe it! 4 years ago today we were out (put) together! Crazy how time flies but it also feels like it was years and years ago! I can honestly say, thank you all so much, every one of you, from all over the world! Your support is absolutely incredible." Niall Horan praises One Direction fans as the group celebrates its fourth anniversary. The boyband was created during the 2010 series of The X Factor U.K.
"It’s been a hard year. It’s been a very public year. We’re working on it… marriage takes work and in light of everything that happened, we’re working toward a positive outcome. We’re a family and we’re staying together as a family and committed to that." Tori Spelling insists her union with husband Dean McDermott is far from over, despite his much-publicised infidelity.
We might well bemoan the loss of the Edgar Wright touch on Marvel's upcoming Ant-Man feature, but there is a silver lining: now, the innovative action-comedy director gets to work on his own original (and, likely, far more interesting) project. Deadline reports that Wright will next helm a film called Baby Driver, a mixture of "crime, action, music and sound." Even with all those nouns jumbled together, the project is still largely ambiguous. And with a title like Baby Driver, we can only begin to imagine what it might be about...
A baby that's also a driver?Wright directs a Look Who's Talking-style family comedy (rated R for language and violence, but still... for the family) about an infant who sets out on the road in his parents' Chevy Camaro.
Somebody who drives babies around? Like a chauffer for babies?Inspired by Vin Diesel's The Pacifier, Wright creates a film about a tough guy getaway driver who takes a new gig picking up the Wasserman kids from nursery school... and grows to love them.
Somebody who drives actual babies? Like the car is a baby, and the guy drives the baby-car?In the distant future, Jonathan Swift's "Modest Proposal" has been brought to life in a few interesting ways. This dark dystopian fantasy has people driving around vehicles made of discarded babies, in light of the recent metal shortage.
An early-years biopic about Good Will Hunting star Minnie Driver?Get it?
An animated film about a young screwdriver?Finally, Wright takes his visual style to Pixar, breathing life into a toolbox of adventures led by a plucky young screwdriver named Phillip.
So, maybe one of those. Or, you know, an actual idea. Either way, we're excited.

Sundance is long gone, Cannes sailed away months ago, and both Tribeca and the Los Angeles Film Festivals have cleared away until next year. But when one major film festival ends, another starts putting its lineup together, and this time, it's Canada's time to shine. The Toronto International Film Festival, which will run from September 4 until the 14, has unveiled the list of titles they'll be premiering this year, and it's packed with under-the-radar indies, highly anticipated returns from accliamed directors, and of course, several likely awards contenders.

Brooke Shields is set to lift the lid on her controversial relationship with her mother in a new book. The actress/model shot to fame as a child star under the guidance of her mum Teri, who managed her daughter and helped her land provocative jobs including a role as a young prostitute in 1978 film Pretty Baby and a series of sexy Calvin Klein adverts as a teen.
Teri faced criticism for allowing her young daughter to tackle such controversial work, and Shields is now planning to put her side of the story in print in a new book.
She tells America's Social Life Magazine, "The reason I wanted to write the book is not to say: 'You didn't understand: She was the best mother in the world'. I'm not holding her up on a pedestal, nor am I painting her as a villain or a victim... You know what's so funny about a lot of the things that they (the critics) were pushing back on her for? Those things were the least of my worries. I was exploited? I was in school full time... Seriously, the opportunities I had... I wasn't worried about what they were saying... We would go to (famed New York nightclub) Studio 54 together, but I would be home by 11."
