After five incredible years Zayn Malik has quit One Direction

Is Nicole Richie pregnant again?… New director for “Fifty Shades of Grey” sequel… Rob Kardashian is getting his own reality show… Are Trai Byers and Grace Gealey from “Empire” hooking up?… and After five incredible years Zayn Malik has quit One Direction

Nicole Richie could be pregnant with baby number three…or she could just be a little gassy after a big lunch. I guess we’ll know soon enough…But Nicole was spotted out in Australia — where her husband Joel Madden is a judge on their version of “The Voice” — with what looked like a little tummy bump. She and Joel have two kids already — 5-year-old Harlow and 3-year-old Sparrow.

The “Fifty Shades of Grey” sequel will go forward, but they’ll have to find a new director. Sam Taylor-Johnson had so many arguments with the book’s author, E.L. James, that she’s said once was enough. She issued a statement saying, “I wish nothing but success to whosoever takes on the exciting challenges of films two and three.” And according to “Variety,” screenwriter Kelly Marcel is also out, and E.L. James reportedly thinks she’s got the skills to do it. Girrrrrl………you better think that thing through!

There’s the possibility that Rob Kardashian is getting his own reality show, and that bloody Instagram photo  he posted comparing sister Kim to the murderous Amy Dunne from “Gone Girl” was just a publicity stunt. A source told Celebrity Dirty Laundry, “The Kardashians aren’t stupid.” The source says Kris Jenner created this whole feud between Rob and Kim to generate buzz for his new spinoff show.

Imagine Lucious Lyon’s oldest son Andre hooking up with daddy’s former fiancée, Boo Boo Kitty. It probably won’t happen on “Empire,” but it looks like it’s happening in real life! Trai Byers and Grace Gealey went to a friend’s wedding together and people who were at the reception say they were acting very affectionate towards one another. They may have been more open with the PDA, but witnesses say there were very aware that people were watching their every move. In fact, one of the guests snapped pictures and sold them to TMZ.

It’s the showbiz story that rocked the world — Zayn Malik announced on One Direction’s Facebook page yesterday that he’s not coming back. He wrote, “I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight.” Reaction has been dramatic. Fans are posting videos of themselves crying hysterically. Others are attacking Zayn’s fiancee Perrie Edwards, accusing her of being the Yoko Ono of 1D. Even Harry Styles got emotional onstage in Jakarta, Indonesia, last night, wiping away tears as the remaining four performed. Louis Tomlinson didn’t take it so seriously. He performed while wrapping his arm around an imaginary Zayn.
