Gabrielle Union met with NBC… Katy Perry & Orlando Bloom have postponed their wedding… Shawn Mendes likes to do Q&A’s… Reggie & Veronica broke up… and Justin Timberlake apologizes to Jessica Biel
Gabrielle Union met with NBC for five hours Tuesday, and that conversation has led the network to launch an investigation into what exactly is going on behind the scenes at “America’s Got Talent.” After their meeting, Gabrielle tweeted, “We had a lengthy 5-hour, and what I thought to be, productive meeting yesterday. I was able to, again, express my unfiltered truth. I led with transparency and my desire and hope for real change.” A spokesperson for the network said, “While there will be further investigation to get a deeper understanding of the facts, we are working with Gabrielle to come to a positive resolution.” By “further investigation,” they mean Simon Cowell. He seems to be behind everything Gabrielle found to be upsetting, and when she verbalized her frustrations, she was labeled as “difficult,” which led to her demise. NBC is hiring an independent investigator to get to the bottom of this.
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have postponed their wedding. Before you panic, they’re not breaking up. Us Weekly’s source says, “They’re beyond in love.” The couple were supposed to get married this month, but apparently things didn’t work out for the venue they wanted, so they’re waiting until they can get it. The source says Katy and Orlando want to have one local wedding party and then a separate destination wedding party. This will be a second marriage for both. Orlando was married to Miranda Kerr and Katy was married to Russell Brand.
Shawn Mendes likes to do Q&A’s with his fans before his concerts and some of his A’s can get REAL interesting. When one fan asked Shawn to describe his relationship with Camila Cabello in one word, all he could come up with was a scene from a movie. Shawn said, “You know the movie Avatar? You know when they’re in front of Eywa, the tree? That’s like how Camila and I are.” So everybody just nodded like they completely understood, but I only saw the movie once 10 years ago and I had no idea what he was talking about and you know those kids didn’t either. Basically, the scene Shawn is talking about is where Jake and Neytiri get busy by entwining their hypersensitive locks of hair. He also told his fans something he said he’s never told Camila. He admitted, “There was a time before we started dating where I was like…I didn’t know what to do….if I should tell her how I feel. Then I was driving down the street and right in the moment when I was like, ‘I’m just not gonna tell her,’ I passed a street that said, ‘Camila.’” Awww…
My daughter will be sad to hear that Reggie and Veronica broke up. Camila Mendes and Charles Melton play those characters on “Riverdale” but they dated in real life for a little over a year. Oh well! But we’re happy for Emma Stone! She just got engaged to Dave McCary. He’s a segment director and writer for “Saturday Night Live” and they met when she hosted SNL 3 years ago and he directed her in one of the sketches. Before she and Dave started dating, Emma was in with Andrew Garfield for almost four years.
Justin Timberlake finally has something to say about whatever did — or he says DIDN’T happen — between him and his “Palmer” co-star, Alisha Wainwright. In addition to whatever went on privately between him and Jessica Biel, he’s profusely apologizing to her publicly. He posted on his Instagram last night, “I stay away from gossip as much as I can, but for my family, I feel it is important to address recent rumors that are hurting the people I love. A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgment — but let me be clear — nothing happened between me and my costar. I drank way too much that night and I regret my behavior. I should have known better. This is not the example I want to set for my son. I apologize to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation, and I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be. This was not that. I am incredibly proud to be working on Palmer. Looking forward to continuing to make this movie and excited for people to see it.” Nothing like an apology peppered with a little self promotion!
