Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are trying to unload the $60M mansion they just bought a few months ago. That’s a lot of money, but if you watch Selling Sunset or Buying Beverly Hills, $60M is NOTHING. Back in 2012, James Jannard — the billionaire behind the Oakley sunglasses and apparel brand — paid $75M for an oceanfront estate in Malibu. Twelve years later, he has now sold it for $210M. The LA Times says records show it was purchased by a Delaware-based LLC, so we don’t know the identity of the buyer. But TMZ saw the paperwork showing that whoever bought it took out a $203M loan to get it. This sale set the new record for the most expensive home ever sold in California. Before that, the record was $200M, which is the price Jay-Z and Beyoncé paid for their Malibu property last year.

Nathan Lane and Matt Bomer are set to star in a new Hulu series inspired by The Golden Girls called Mid-Century Modern. The new series is about three “gay gentlemen of a certain age” who decide to spend their golden years living together after an unexpected death. Matt’s character is described as “pure of heart, hard of body and soft of head” …so he’s kind of like Betty White’s Rose. And Nathan’s character is more like Dorothy, who was played by Bea Arthur. The men will all live with Nathan’s character’s mom, who is played by Linda Lavin, and her “naked Gen Z housekeeper,” who, along with the third friend, has yet to be cast.

Taylor Swift’s fans were divided after discovering one of their own was selling the friendship bracelet given to her by Taylor’s mom. The bracelet was made of brown and gold beads with the message, “MAMA SWIFT LOVES YOU.” In the description, it said, “Taylor Swift rare bracelet from Eras tour. This was given to me by Taylor Swift’s mom at the concert, Andrea Swift. This is the ultimate friendship bracelet, and I have the proof as her mom handed it to me. From her Santa Clara concert in July 2023.” The asking price? $300. Many of Taylor’s fans were “disgusted” by this act, but a lot of people had the fan’s back. One posed, “Maybe this will be the reason a family gets food on their table, you never know what other people are struggling with. so no judgment.” Another said, “The whole family runs on capitalism lol I guarantee andrea wouldn’t care in the slightest.” By the way, the bracelet sold for $200.

Jennifer Lopez said she was calling off her world tour to spend time with her family. But after a couple weeks of kids’ graduations and basketball games with a broody, depressed Ben, that was enough of that. Jennifer is now vacationing with friends in Italy. TMZ has photos and videos of her looking very relaxed at a hotel in Positano, a cliffside village on southern Italy’s Amalfi Coast. JLo and her friends later boarded a boat which took them to a yacht anchored off-shore.

Two drunk celebrity arrests in two days?? In breaking news, Travis Scott was arrested this morning in Miami. At approximately 4:30am, Travis was booked on a charge of disorderly intoxication and trespassing. WSVN reported that Travis had been on a charter boat in the Miami Beach Marina. Apparently, the owner asked Travis to leave because he was drunk and causing a disturbance, which he did. But then, Travis reportedly “returned to disturb some more” and that’s when police were called. Travis was arrested at 1:17am and booked 3 hours later. He’s free on $650 bond.

And just after midnight Tuesday, Justin Timberlake was arrested in the Hamptons on DWI charges. After hanging out with his friends at the American Hotel in Sag Harbor, Justin got in his BMW to head off to wherever he was staying. An officer reportedly watched him blow through a stop sign, noticed the car was swerving, and pulled him over. A source told Page Six that the officer who stopped him was “so young” that he didn’t recognize Justin. The source said, “Justin said under his breath, ‘This is going to ruin the tour.’ The cop replied, ‘What tour?’ Justin said, ‘The world tour.’” Justin claimed to have only had one martini, but according to witnesses inside the bar, that was far from the truth. In the police report, it says Justin had “bloodshot and glassy eyes” along with “a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage was emanating from his breath.” While Justin refused to take a breathalyzer three times, he failed a field sobriety test and got hauled off to jail. His attorney issued a statement saying he “looks forward to vigorously defending Mr. Timberlake against these allegations. He will have a lot to say at the appropriate time. He is currently awaiting full discovery from the DA’s office.” Justin’s new court date is July 26, but Page Six says it’s a procedural hearing so he won’t have to be there. That’s good, because Justin is scheduled to perform in Poland at that time. His next concert is tomorrow night in Chicago.
