Tom Cruise’s potential new wife… Has Kylie Jenner been dumped by Travis Scott?… “This Is Us” cast wants a pay increase… Ben Affleck has apologized… and Harvey Weinstein’s daughter called 911 saying he was ‘suicidal’
In Touch is reporting that Tom Cruise has his sites set on another actress to become his wife. She is British actress Vanessa Kirby. If you watch “The Crown” on Netflix, she plays Princess Margaret. Apparently, that’s where Tom saw her and he was completely smitten. In fact, sources say that Tom told Mission: Impossible 6 producers that he had to have Vanessa for a crucial role in the movie. Apparently, his plan worked because everyone says sparks were flying. And now Tom’s planning to make her the fourth Mrs. Cruise, possibly as early as next year.
In Touch is reporting that Kylie Jenner has been dumped by Travis Scott. They’d only been dating about a month or so when Kylie found out she was pregnant. Sources say Travis sort of went into a state of shock because things were moving so fast for him. And when the responsibilities of being a father started to sink in, he freaked out and went AWOL. Sources told In Touch that Kylie is not only devastated, she’s embarrassed. But many of her friends believe that once Travis calms down, he’ll come back. And by the way, In Touch is also reporting that that not only are Kylie, Kim and Khloe expecting babies, they say Kourtney is having one with her boy toy Younes Bendjima, but they’re only their close family and friends for now.
Naughty Gossip is reporting that the cast of “This Is Us” is demanding a huge pay increase. Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia currently earn the most at $85K per episode. Sterling K. Brown earns a reported $75K per episode, while his TV brother and sister Justin Hartley and Chrissy Metz get paid $40K per episode. But much like the casts of successful TV shows before them, the group is reportedly banding together to demand a big raise. Sources told Naughty Gossip, “They are one of the highest rated shows on TV and they now consider themselves an ensemble like the actors on ‘Friends’ and ‘Modern Family.’ Those casts earn $1 million per episode and that is the ballpark we are now talking about for ‘This Is Us’ cast members too. It might sound like a huge increase but when you deliver the numbers these guys are getting they are worth every single penny.”
Ben Affleck has apologized for groping former MTV VJ turned actress Hilarie Burton for a boob-tweaking incident that took place on “Total Request Live” back in 2001. When Ben came out to condemn Harvey Weinstein’s lechery, someone on social media called him out, saying everybody seems to have forgotten what he did to Hilarie on TRL. She responded that she didn’t forget and then posted a clip of her talking about the groping incident. In response, Ben tweeted, “I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize.” Then another video clip from 2004 surfaced showing Ben pulling a Canadian TV hostess Anne-Marie Losique onto his lap and putting his hands all over her. But Anne-Marie quickly came to Ben’s defense on that one, saying that she wasn’t a victim and that this was an ongoing bit between the two of them that was done strictly for the cameras.

Yesterday, Harvey Weinstein’s 22-year-old daughter Remy called 911, saying her father was at her home and he was suicidal. Next thing you know, the two of them are out in the street fighting with Harvey yelling at Remy, “You’re making it worse!” He then flagged down a random car and started begging for a ride, but that didn’t work out. Remy convinced her dad to get back in the house, but when officers arrived a few minutes later, Harvey had apparently taken off. Remy tried to diffuse the situation, telling officers that her dad hadn’t been suicidal and that they were just having a good old family argument. But later that afternoon, paparazzi caught Harvey leaving his daughter’s house, headed to the airport. One asked Harvey how he was doing and he said, “Guys, I’m not doing okay but I’m trying. I got to get help. You know what? We all make mistakes…a second chance, I hope.” Then Harvey was driven to a private jet that was waiting for him, and rather than fly off to Switzerland for treatment as he’d originally planned — wondering if law enforcement had any say-so in that — Harvey flew to Arizona where he checked into The Meadows. Here they offer a 45-day inpatient program called Gentle Path. I guess that’s where they “gently” help one deal with sex addiction issues through equine therapy, arts therapy, meditation and yoga.
