Box office weekend news… Shiloh changed her name… RHONJ will not have a reunion… Jake Paul & Mike Tyson fight postponed… and Jennifer Lopez cancels her troubled This Is Me summer tour…

When I’m wrong, I’m wrong! The Garfield Movie isn’t flopping after all! After debuting in second place over Memorial Day weekend, Garfield is now No. 1 at the box office with $14M. It was a tight race for second, but IF took in roughly $10.8M to claim that spot, with last week’s No. 1 movie Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga settling for third with $10.75M. Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes landed in fourth with $8.8M, followed by The Fall Guy in fifth with $4.2M. We’re still waiting for that big breakout summer movie, which could arrive on June 14 when Inside Out 2 hits theaters. Early projections have the movie earning $85M in its opening weekend. Later this summer, we can look forward to Despicable Me 4 on July 3 and Deadpool & Wolverine on July 26.

Just to punctuate the moment with a great big exclamation point, on her 18th birthday, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s daughter filed a request to change her name from “Shiloh Jolie-Pitt” to “Shiloh Jolie.” A source told Entertainment Tonight, “Shiloh hired her own lawyer and paid for it herself, so Angie doesn’t know and can’t speak for it.” Shiloh isn’t the first of their children to distance themselves from their dad. For years, their oldest son Maddox — whom Brad adopted when he married Angelina — hasn’t used Brad’s last name. When Zahara was inducted into Alpha Kappa Alpha at Spelman College back in November, she introduced herself as “Zahara Marley Jolie.” And last month, their 15-year-old daughter was listed as “Vivienne Jolie” in The Outsiders Playbill. Vivienne and her mom are producing the Broadway play. Other than Shiloh, we’re not sure if the other children have gone through the legal process to drop “Pitt.” Angelina filed for divorce back in 2016, after she and Brad had been together for 12 years and married for two. The final straw for them was when Brad reportedly assaulted Angelina and one of their children — most likely Maddox — on a private jet.

Page Six has confirmed it….there will be no reunion for The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Typically, reunions are meant to hash out any disagreements and come to a resolution so the ladies can all come back fresh the next season. But things are so toxic during Season 14, there is no resolution to be had, so why go through the charade of having a reunion? Page Six’s source said, “It makes sense. And once viewers see the finale, the decision to forgo the traditional reunion will make even more sense.” This isn’t a good sign for the current cast. This same thing happened at the end of Season 13 of The Real Housewives of New York. They didn’t get a reunion, either, and when the show returned for Season 14, it was with an entirely new cast.

The Mike Tyson vs. Jake Paul match scheduled for July 20 has been indefinitely postponed. On a recent flight from Miami to LA, Mike’s ulcer flared up, causing him to need medical attention. And apparently, doctors want him to take a minute before jumping back in the ring. In a statement, Mike said, “I want to thank my fans around the world for their support and understanding during this time. Unfortunately, due to my ulcer flareup, I have been advised by my doctor to lighten my training for a few weeks to rest and recover. My body is in better overall shape than it has been since the 1990s and I will be back to my full training schedule soon. Jake Paul, this may have bought you some time, but in the end you will still be knocked out and out of boxing for good. I appreciate everyone’s patience and can’t wait to deliver an unforgettable performance later this year.”

On Friday, those of us subscribed to the On the JLo newsletter received the heartbreaking message: “Representatives for Live Nation announced today that Jennifer Lopez US Summer 2024 Tour THIS IS ME…LIVE is canceled, citing…’Jennifer is taking time off to be with her children, family and close friends.” Jennifer added, “I am completely heartsick and devastated about letting you down. Please know that I wouldn’t do this if I didn’t feel that it was absolutely necessary. I promise I will make it up to you and we will all be together again. I love you so much. Until next time…” Some cynics will say this is a coverup for poor ticket sales. The rest of us are hoping this will be the move that saves her marriage. Ben and Jen sure did seem cheerful when they arrived for his son’s basketball game at the YMCA yesterday. But it felt like a little dagger to the heart when they greeted each other with an air kiss to the cheek…
