Emma Roberts is having a baby boy with her boyfriend, Garrett Hedlund. She made the announcement in a series of Instagram photos, casually displaying her growing belly with Garrett by her side. She captioned them, “Me…and my two favorite guys.” Aunt Julia Roberts commented, “Love you.”

TikTok hotties Bryce Hall and Blake Gray got in trouble for throwing a house party at their rented mansion in the Hollywood Hills on Aug. 8th, but that didn’t stop them from throwing another rager on Aug. 14th! In their defense, it was Bryce’s 21st birthday. Since they couldn’t be trusted, the city turned off utilities to the house, and a remorseful Bryce said he deserves whatever punishment comes his way. On Friday, the LA city attorney announced that Bryce and Blake are each being charged with a misdemeanor count of violating the local emergency order in place during the pandemic and misdemeanor count of violating a noise ordinance. If convicted, they face up to a year in jail and up to $2000 in fines. You think Bryce still feels like he deserves that?

The Daily Mail reports that Brad Pitt is dating a married woman, but it’s okay because she’s in an open marriage. German model Nicole Poturalski has been married to German restauranteur Roland Mary for 8 years, and they share a 7-year-old son. By the way, she’s 27 and he’s 68. A source told the Daily Mail that this is Roland’s fourth marriage, and he really doesn’t mind that Nicole is seeing Brad because “he’s not interested in negativity or jealousy.” Brad reportedly met Nicole at her husband’s restaurant last summer while he was on a promotional tour for “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” Shortly after he returned to LA, she came to visit and they’ve been hooking up ever since.

Page Six says most of what you saw during the MTV VMAs last night was pre-recorded days in advance. For those who flew into NY to pre-record their performances, they had to quarantine for 3 to 4 days before their scheduled shoot. Anyone on set — the talent, their dancers, glam squads, management — all had to undergo COVID-19 testing. Page Six learned Maluma shot his performance at the Skyline Drive-In theater in Brooklyn on Wednesday. The Weeknd shot his performance at the Edge at Hudson Yards and another location in Brooklyn on Thursday. And it turns out Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus and Doja Cat never flew to NY, shooting their performances in front of a green screen in LA.

Chadwick Boseman died on Friday after a 4-year battle with colon cancer. He was 43. Chadwick never revealed he was sick, which is why this news came as such a shock to everyone. A tweet announcing his passing has become the most liked tweet in history, with 7.4M and counting. Chadwick was diagnosed with Stage III colon cancer in 2016, which progressed to Stage IV. The statement said, “A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much. From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy. It was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther. He died in his home, with his wife and family by his side.” Chadwick reportedly married his longtime girlfriend Taylor Simone Ledward before he passed away.
