Lady Gaga’s dog walker, Ryan Fischer, is opening up about the hardest part of his recovery. In February, he was walking Lady Gaga’s dogs at night when three men attacked him, shooting him in the chest, and stealing two of her three French Bulldogs. Five people have been arrested, including a woman who was working with the men and pretended to be a good Samaritan who found the dogs to collect Gaga’s $500k reward. Yesterday, Ryan posted a very long letter on Instagram, explaining that he can no longer be a dog walker because well-intentioned people won’t let him forget what happened. He said in part, “It’s a strange thing to be known for a trauma that I’m still healing from. People want to reach out, share in my pain for a moment, and then walk away, leaving me to relive it again….Along with the media attention and trauma recovery, I am, for the first time in a very long time, without purpose, which has been the hardest part. Because I’m not yet in the proper headspace to care for dogs, my purpose for the last ten years has suddenly vanished.” Ryan said he’s excited to keep us posted on his journey toward finding his new purpose.

Are we excited about this potential happy ending? Just a few weeks ago, Matt James admitted that he’s giving his relationship with Rachael Kirkconnell another chance. And now a source told E! News that things are going SO well, they’re considering moving in together. They’re still taking it slow, but the insider says, “It’s an option they’re considering. (They’re) waiting to see how the next couple of months progress.”

His manager Future the Prince called Drake “the most kind, selfless, generous person” he knows. He wasn’t lying. To celebrate winning Billboard’s Artist of the Decade Award Sunday night, Drake rented out the new 70K-capacity SoFi Stadium in Inglewood and threw a dinner party for his team. He posted a photo of his crew posing on the field of the new home of the Rams and Chargers. He also invited some of his good friends to join them all for dinner, including DJ Khaled, Doja Cat, Sza and The Weeknd.

Scott Disick turns 38 tomorrow but threw himself a party yesterday. In addition to having food trucks from Raising Cane’s and Churro Man, Scott’s party favors for guests were free diamond Rolexes, bracelets and necklaces. Take your pick. Scott said, “This is how Lord does it. I’m sorry that everybody gives out candy, but I give out ice.” His 19-year-old girlfriend Amelia Hamlin gave the birthday boy a new Harley Davidson.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck continue to heat things up in Miami. They arrived at a local gym and left separately, but during their workout, an eyewitness told In Touch that the two of them kissed between sets. Of course, nobody working for the gym would comment. Meantime, Ben has been wearing a bracelet style watch that Jennifer gave him when they first started dating 20 years ago. You can even see him wearing it in the “Jenny From the Block” video.
