Robert Pattinson is dating rising British singer/songwriter Fka Twigs, according to a U.K. report.
The Twilight star has been pictured with the singer, real name Tahliah Barnett, in New York in recent weeks and the pair has been dating for more than month, according to Britain's The Sun newspaper.
A source tells the publication, "It's the real deal between Rob and Tahliah... they had been able to keep their relationship secret until recently, but they're already smitten. "He's been taking her on dates for the last month or so, and has even flown her out to stay with him in New York. He also loves going to her gigs... The main thing for Tahliah is that the relationship remains low key. She wants to be known for her music, not just as 'Robert Pattinson's girlfriend'."
The actor split from his Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart in 2013 after four years together. He has since been linked to Sean Penn's daughter Dylan and model Imogen Ker.
Three men have been convicted in the shooting death of rapper Lil Phat. The Atlanta, Georgia-based star, real name Melvin Vernell III, was shot and killed in June, 2012 while he was awaiting the birth of his child, and on Friday (29Aug14) a jury convicted gunman Deandre Washington, 25, to life without parole plus 20 years.
Gary Bradford, 35, and 29-year-old Maurice Conner were sentenced to 25 years and 30 years behind bars, respectively, on charges of conspiracy and participating in criminal street gang activity.
Prosecutors claimed the trio conspired to kill Vernell over a drug robbery they believed he had orchestrated.
Rapper Young Jeezy has been released from jail after posting $1 million (£588,000) bail for a gun possession charge linked to a fatal shooting at a recent concert. The hip-hop star, real name Jay Jenkins, was taken into custody last Sunday (24Aug14) after police discovered an assault rifle on his tour bus.
Detectives believe the firearm is the same weapon used to kill 38-year-old record label boss Eric Johnson backstage at Jeezy's joint Under the Influence of Music concert with Wiz Khalifa in Mountain View, California on 22 August (14).
Jeezy and five members of his entourage were arrested and charged as no one came forward to claim ownership of the gun.
He pleaded not guilty to the count during a court hearing in Newport Beach, California on Tuesday (26Aug14) and he walked free from jail on Thursday night (28Aug14).
The rapper also posted bail for his five associates. He is due back in court next Friday (05Sep14).
Singer/rapper Cee Lo Green has been handed three years of probation and a community service sentence after striking a plea deal relating to an ecstasy charge.
The Forget You hitmaker, real name Thomas DeCarlo Callaway, hit headlines last year (13) after an ex-girlfriend accused him of slipping her ecstasy before having sex with her following a dinner date in Los Angeles in 2012. He pleaded not guilty to the claim at the time of his booking, but subsequently agreed to plead no contest to a felony count of sharing ecstasy in a deal which allows him to maintain his innocence.
He entered the plea during a brief court hearing on Friday (29Aug14), when Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mark Young ordered the star to serve probation.
The 39 year old must also complete 360 hours of community work at the MusiCares Foundation of the Recording Academy, which provides financial aid and medical care to musicians who have fallen on hard times. He must also attend 52 private alcohol counselling sessions, reports TMZ.com.
Prosecutors had previously dropped a charge of sexual assault against Green on the grounds of insufficient evidence. The plaintiff, whose identity has not been revealed, alleged Green spiked her drink during a date in November, 2012, and she later woke up naked in a bed with him in the room.
U.S. comedian Jimmy Kimmel kicked off his late-night TV show on Thursday (28Aug14) by assuring Friends fans that his reunion skit the day before was planned and Jennifer Aniston was not forced into taking part. Devotees of the beloved sitcom flooded social media and YouTube.com after Kimmel brought Aniston, Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox together for a scene read in a stage replica of character Monica's kitchen.
Aniston, who was promoting her new film on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, appeared not to be happy about the idea, prompting many fans to criticise her.
But, at the top of his show on Thursday, Kimmel poked fun at the baffled fans as he read out their tweets, posts and emails.
He then explained that his pal Aniston was very much in on the joke - and she was just acting surprised and annoyed by the reunion.
He said, "She was acting, apparently very good too. She should probably get an Emmy for that acting...
"Ninety-nine per cent of the time when you put something on YouTube everyone jumps in to say it's fake, then we put something that is, I thought, obviously fake on and people think it's real."
Rising rapper Bobby Shmurda is facing up to 15 years behind bars following his arrest on gun possession charges. The 20-year-old star, who has shot to fame with his so-called 'Shmoney Dance' from his Hot N**ga video, was busted by police on 3 June (14) after allegedly showing off a 9mm Glock pistol in an apartment in Brooklyn, New York.
He was charged with felony criminal possession of a weapon, which could land him a lengthy prison sentence.
Shmurda, real name Ackquille Pollard, is currently free on $10,000 (£5,882) bail, reports the New York Post.
News of the charge emerges a day after a New Jersey nightclub appearance by Shmurda ended in chaos when an estimated 200 fans ran for cover as gun shots rang out outside Club Eden.
The rapper, fresh from a surprise appearance onstage with Drake at his Tuesday night (26Aug14) show in New Jersey, had already left the premises when a driver leaving the venue early on Thursday (28Aug14) fired off two shots in the Roselle car park. No one was hit by the bullets, but cops raced to the scene to control the panicked crowd and help clear the area.
British model Cara Delevingne wanted to eat an animal's heart when filming a dream sequence in her upcoming movie The Face Of An Angel.
In the drama, the catwalk beauty plays a student who teams up with a director and a journalist to make a film about a murder victim.
The story, starring Kate Beckinsale and Rush star Daniel Bruhl, is loosely based on the real-life death of Meredith Kercher in Italy in 2007, and includes a scene showing Delevingne's character eating a beating heart in a dream sequence. The model has now revealed she offered to chomp on the real thing but had to settle for a heart-shaped cake instead.
Delevingne tells Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, "I wanted it to be a real heart, in the weirdest way... you know, a pig's heart... but instead it was made of icing and red sauce. Every time Daniel walked in, he kept laughing, which affected me - and everyone else." The drama will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada on 6 September (14) and will also be screened at the BFI London Film Festival in October (14).
Kercher's roommate, U.S. student Amanda Knox, and Knox's boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were convicted of the murder but were acquitted in 2011 after serving four years.
Houdini star Adrien Brody showed off his real-life escapology skills when he slipped out of locked handcuffs at a museum dedicated to the famed daredevil this week (beg25Aug14).
The actor, whose miniseries depicting the life of the illusionist is due to be broadcast in the U.S. next month (Sep14), attended the Houdini Museum in New York City to promote the show.
He happily posed for photos wearing an original pair of the escapologist's handcuffs, and when museum curator Roger Dreyer told onlookers there was no key, Brody stunned the crowd by slipping them off his wrists, according to New York Post gossip column Page Six.
LMFAO star Redfoo is convinced a nightclub reveller who threw a glass at his head in an unprovoked attack was jealous because the pop star was surrounded by sexy girls.
The rapper, real name Stefan Gordy, received treatment at the scene for a cut to his head following the incident in Australia, but the injury did not require stitches. He had been attacked during a bash in a private area of the Golden Sheaf Hotel in Sydney, and Redfoo is convinced his assailant was envious because he was partying the night away with a group of beautiful women.
Speaking after the incident in the early hours of Wednesday (27Aug14), he says, "We were about to round up the party and take it home to the afterparty. All of a sudden out of nowhere a glass hits me in the head and I look over to see who might have thrown it and I see kind of a dodgy fella trying to flee the scene. "I looked down at my hand and there was blood all over my hand. There's blood on the dance floor... I was appalled. It was unbelievable to me that this would happen. I lost my mind. The whole side of my face was bloody. It was unbelievable, like I'd been hit in the head with an axe... "I can't help it if the girls are gyrating their hips towards me and taking selfies and giggling and laughing and it seems like he might have been upset with that and didn't like what he saw. The first thing I would say to him is 'Bro, I've got to understand why did you do it. I want him to just tell me the truth. If you are a man and jealous, just say it'."
However, Redfoo is adamant he still loves life in Australia, adding, "This isn't the Aussie way, I can guarantee that. This is the most loving country I've been to ever, and by no means am I letting this get to me. I have only positive feelings about Australia and the people."
A 21-year-old man is due in court on 24 September (14) charged with malicious wounding in connection with the incident.

Singer Ray J has pleaded no contest to a charge of misdemeanour trespassing in relation to his arrest at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles in May (14).
The star, who famously dated Kim Kardashian and appeared in her sex tape, was also charged with sexual battery, assault on a police officer and resisting arrest but those counts have been dismissed under the terms of a plea deal.
The R&B singer previously pleaded not guilty to the groping and resisting arrest charges. Reports suggest Ray J kicked out the window of a police car and spat on a police officer.
The singer told TMZ.com he smashed the window because he felt claustrophobic.
A Los Angeles District Attorney subsequently filed sexual battery, resisting arrest, assault and vandalism charges against the singer.
The 33 year old, real name Willie Ray Norwood Jr., has been sentenced to three years' probation and 50 hours of community service. He was also ordered to attend alcohol therapy and anger management classes.
