Rumors of Jay Z and Beyonce’s troubled marriage

Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello moving fast… Kiefer Sutherland is taking the high road… “After the Final Rose” awkward moment… Zayn Malik’s tweet… and Rumors of Jay Z and Beyonce’s troubled marriage

Things are moving pretty quickly for Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello! Sofia invited her new beau to meet her Colombian family over dinner at a Japanese restaurant in Bal Harbour, Florida. Sources say Joe was a good sport as a dozen people sat around speaking only Spanish in front of him. Joe and Sofia first met at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner back in May, but she was still engaged to Nick Loeb at the time.

Kiefer Sutherland is taking the high road. Back in 2010, Freddie Prinze, Jr. had a part on “24” and says things were so bad, it made him consider giving up acting forever. He slammed Kiefer, calling him the “most unprofessional dude in the world” who would show up for work drunk, hold up production and have the people he didn’t like fired. Kiefer’s rep responded saying, “Kiefer worked with Freddie Prinze, Jr. more than 5 years ago, and this is the first he has heard of Freddie’s grievances. Kiefer enjoyed working with Freddie and wishes him the best.” Fox has responded saying that Kiefer has always been “nothing but professional during the run of the show and is beloved by cast and crew.” A source at Fox said they wouldn’t have done another “24” if Kiefer were anything like Freddie described.

SPOILER ALERT:  Things got awkward on the couch during “After the Final Rose” last night. After Andi dumped Nick and chose Josh, she shut Nick out completely. He spent a month trying to get in touch with Andi — to get the closure he so desperately needed. But it wasn’t until last night that Nick got his chance. When he was finally face-to-face with Andi, he asked her, “If you knew how in love with you I was, why did you make love with me?” She told him, “That’s below the belt,” and then did a lawyer dance around the subject. And BOO Chris Harrison for not asking Josh how he felt about it when he finally joined the conversation.

One Direction’s Zayn Malik is standing behind his tweet: “#FreePalestine.” Rihanna went there, too, but after receiving negative backlash and death threats, she deleted the tweet 8 minutes later. Zayn — who was raised Muslim — is receiving the same negative reaction. Broken-hearted Israeli fans are asking why Zayn wants them to be killed…others are threatening to kill Zayn. But unlike Rihanna, his tweet still stands.

As rumors continue to swirl that Jay Z and Beyonce’s marriage is in trouble, the NY Post is reporting that Beyonce may already have one foot out the door. Sources close to the couple say that just weeks after the Solange elevator incident, Beyonce quietly checked out a $21.5 million penthouse in the Chelsea section of NYC. At just over 4000 square feet, it’s roughly half the size of the Tribeca apartment she and Jay Z share with their 2-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy.
