Showbiz Top 5: Kris and Bruce Jenner confirm they separated a year ago

Liam Hemsworth helps Ashlee Simpson celebrate her 29th Birthday!…A little tension between Julianne Hough and Mark Ballas…Rihanna gets a Maori tribal tattoo…Kanye West to guest on Kimmel’s show after ‘rap feud’ and Kris and Bruce Jenner confirm they separated a year ago.

This past weekend, Ashlee Simpson celebrated her 29th birthday at a such hotspot in Buckhead, Atlanta, because that’s where her boyfriend Evan Ross is filming the final installment of “The Hunger Games” movies, “Mockingjay.” So if Evan’s there to celebrate, certainly some of his other castmates stopped by for the party, right? Yep — Liam Hemsworth and three of his buddies rolled up just in time for cake and cocktails. And sources say even though girls in the restaurant were practically throwing themselves at him, Liam just wasn’t interested. He was there to hang with his boys.

Do we sense a little tension between Mark Ballas and Julianne Hough? Julianne filled in for judge Len on “Dancing With the Stars” this past week and Mark thinks she spent most of her time judging him instead of his celebrity partner, Christina Milian. He called it “hypocritical.” But this might go back to when Julianne and Mark teamed up and trained for the Junior Olympics of ballroom dancing. Julianne claimed she was mentally and physically abused while training in London, and she didn’t deny it when people started assumed she was talking about Mark’s parents.

Rihanna wanted something to remind her of her trip to New Zealand, but since she’s not into collecting shot glasses, she decided to add to her tattoo collection, instead. This time, she wanted a traditional Maori tattoo inked onto her right hand, and that tradition includes using a chisel and a mallet!! And just in case she forgot how painful the experience was, she had the whole thing videotaped, which you can find on You Tube.

If you can’t sit up late enough, make sure you set your DVR for “Jimmy Kimmel Livetonight because his special guest will be KANYE WEST! Less than two weeks ago, Kanye was so angry about a skit where kids recreated Kanye’s BBC 1 Radio interview, he ripped Jimmy apart on Twitter. This could either be the best or the most awkward interview EVER!!

And the worst kept secret of the past few months is finally confirmed. Kris Jenner sold her story to “Us Weekly” that yes, she and Bruce are separated. Apparently they’ve been living apart for about a year. She told the magazine that they’re much happier this way and that they still have much love and respect for each other. In fact, the day the news came out about the split, Bruce was filming a segment for “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” with his daughters, Kendall and Kylie. And sure things are nicey-nice now, but they haven’t started hashing out the divorce settlement yet. When they were married 22 years ago, they didn’t bother getting a prenup.
