So do you remember when PETA busted Pete Davidson for buying a Cavapoo instead of adopting a dog from a shelter, and then he called up PETA’s senior VP of cruelty investigations and left her a heated message, saying his mom and sister had been bawling because their dog died and he was trying to cheer them up with this puppy, but he had to have this specific breed because of his allergies? Pete used some very choice language, instructing the woman to do something vulgar to one of his appendages. Ms. PETA didn’t like that and she released the voicemail. Pete later apologized for his poor choice of words, but said he wasn’t sorry for standing up for his family. Now PETA is seizing the opportunity to capitalize on Pete’s meltdown. On their website, PETA is selling a Halloween costume that includes “a paper Pete Davidson mask including a ‘#$@!%’ baseball cap, a stuffed dog wearing a ‘Shelter Dogs Rule’ bandana, and a black hoodie with ‘I Should’ve Adopted’ printed on the front.” PETA instructs you to “pair with your own scumbro-style clothing.” Regularly priced $99.99, PETA is now offering it for $84.99. They say, “All proceeds will go toward spay/neuter surgeries to help fight the homeless-dog epidemic, which breeders exacerbate.”

Olivia Rodrigo’s second album “Guts” drops tomorrow. She told “Interview Magazine” that she learned a big lesson after the release of her first album. This go round, Olivia says she felt like it was her responsibility to send her songs to the people they were written about before releasing them to the world. She didn’t show that same courtesy to her ex boyfriend Joshua Bassett, but then again, she’d never experienced something like this before. When Olivia released “Drivers License” two years ago, her fans figured out it was about Joshua and Sabrina Carpenter. They launched so much hate towards both of them, but Joshua ended in the hospital suffering from stress-induced septic shock. Olivia said, “That was an overwhelming experience, but now I definitely feel a responsibility [to give a heads up]. I just try not to think about it during the writing process.”

Christine Baumgartner — soon to be ex-Mrs. Kevin Costner — should just take the L. She’s been challenging what she agreed to in the prenup she signed 18 years ago, but the judge keeps ruling against her. First, she asked for over $161K/month in child support, which a judge slashed to $63K/month. ($40K of that goes to her rent payment each month.) And now a judge has ordered Christine to pay part of Kevin’s lawyers fees. Now she has to write Kevin a check for over $14K by Sept. 22.

Travis Barker left the Blink-182 tour in Europe to race home to his wife Kourtney Kardashian, who is heavily pregnant and had to be hospitalized. Yesterday, Kourtney revealed on her instagram that their unborn son needed life-saving surgery. She said, “I will be forever grateful to my incredible doctors for saving our baby’s life. I am eternally grateful to my husband who rushed to my side from tour to be with me in the hospital and take care of me afterwards, my rock. And to my mom, thank you for holding my hand through this. As someone who has had three really easy pregnancies in the past, I wasn’t prepared for the fear of rushing into urgent fetal surgery. I don’t think anyone who hasn’t been through a similar situation can begin to understand that feeling of fear. I have a whole new understanding and respect for the mamas who have had to fight for their babies while pregnant. Praise be to God. Walking out of the hospital with my baby boy in my tummy and safe was the truest blessing.Walking out of the hospital with my baby boy in my tummy and safe was the truest blessing.” Travis tweeted, “God is great. I flew home for a life-threatening emergency surgery for our baby that I’m so grateful went well. I want to say thank you for all the support. Tour resumes Friday.”

While both released a statement saying their decision to divorce was mutual and amicable, it’s sounding more like this is not the case AT ALL. Joe Jonas filed for divorce from Sophie Turner on Tuesday. TMZ’s sources say their marriage had been in trouble for about 6 months, but the last 3 were a real struggle. Sophie has been in England filming a TV series while Joe stayed back in the US with their 3- and 1-year-old daughters, taking them along on tour with the Jonas Brothers. Sources told TMZ that Joe contacted a couple of divorce lawyers last week, but hadn’t pulled the trigger. Then he reportedly heard Sophie say something or do something on a Ring camera that let him know his marriage was “irretrievably broken,” and that was the final straw that got him to file for divorce.
