Taylor Swift has committed a million dollars to help the flood victims in Louisiana. As part of her donation, she wrote a $50K check to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank, which thanked her on Instagram yesterday. The food bank was flooded with upwards of four feet of water and have been forced to move to a temporary facility. Also yesterday, the Salvation Army tweeted their thanks to Taylor for donating to their efforts in Louisiana.
Demi Lovato has been seeing UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold for a couple months now, but things seem to be getting a little more serious. A source told TMZ Sports that the two of them met while working out at the Unbreakable gym in LA and clicked right away. They’ve even been sending each other secret messages on social media, including smiley faces on their index fingers.
Jennifer Lopez dumped Casper Smart when he chose Vegas with the boys over a Hamptons fundraiser with her. But Casper didn’t get the memo and he flew up to NYC to be with her while she’s shooting “Shades of Blue” for the next four months. Sources say she’s being friendly but cool with Casper, making sure he understands they are no longer a couple. But he’s just biding his time because he knows she’ll get over it.
Sofia Richie turned 18 on Wednesday and of course Justin Bieber was there to help her celebrate her first full day as a legal adult. Justin took Sofia to Beverly Hills for a shopping spree at Barney’s. After about half an hour, HollywoodLife.com says Justin’s two bodyguards carried several bags out to the car. The next stop was a tattoo parlor on the Sunset Strip, where Sofia intended to get her first tattoo. The only problem was that they were recognized by a busload of tourists and it got a little crazy. So Justin and Sofia reportedly ended up going to a different tattoo parlor in West Hollywood for Sofia’s birthday ink. No word on what she got. Later that night, Sofia and her friends went to the Doheny Room in West Hollywood to continue her birthday celebration. Justin showed up around 10pm and they left together at 1am to go to his place in Toluca Lake. The night before, Sofia partied without Justin at 1OAK. When the clock struck midnight, Sofia jumped up on stage to announce it was officially her 18th birthday and they gave her a cake shaped like a Range Rover while Kent Jones sang “Happy Birthday.” No word if she got an ACTUAL Range Rover…..
