Rob Lowe rescued from home… Jillian Michaels is leaving “The Biggest Loser”… Niall Horan tells fans to chill… Chris Brown has rejected a plea deal… and Who’s the next Bachelor?

On Tuesday, Rob Lowe’s 19-year-old son John posted a photo of himself jumping off a yacht in Grasse, France. He captioned it, “Seriously though, this is getting ridiculous #thankful.” But just hours later, the Lowes were fearing for their lives. According to local reports, the area received the equivalent of 3 months of rain in just four hours. Rob and his family had to be rescued from their vacation home by firefighters. It didn’t stop the Lowes from documenting it all on social media, though! In a since deleted photo, Rob posted this:  “My wife being rescued this am (morning) in the horrific flooding in Grasse France. Glad we are safe. Grateful to first responders.” Think his wife might’ve though, Why are you taking my freaking picture when I could be swept away in a flood over here??? Um…yeah. Their son John posted a video and captioned it, “That’s the first floor of our house submerged. Scariest hour or so of my life, also sorry for the explicit language. #theboyssurviveaflood.”

Jillian Michaels is leaving “The Biggest Loser” AGAIN. NBC announced, “After helping hundreds of contestants transform their lives and inspiring millions of viewers at home, The Biggest Loser and Jillian Michaels have decided to part ways and she will not be returning for season 16 when it airs in the fall.” Back in April, a source told “People” that Jillian was “deeply concerned” about the direction the show was taking after an emaciated Rachel Frederickson showed up to win the final weigh-in.

One Direction fans are a passionate bunch, but that passion led to injury and finally Niall Horan had to say something about it. After their show in Amsterdam, Niall tweeted, “Can you limit what gets thrown on stage please! Coz somethin thrown at me tonight! Hit my knee! A lot of pain from it! Never wana sound like I’m complaining! But only having my operation 5 months ago, I still get a bit of pain and I’m very scared about it.” Yes, Niall was struck in the knee by some fan-flung object that left him bleeding and limping. The concert ended shortly afterward.

Chris Brown has rejected a plea deal in his Washington assault case, so this will go to trial. TMZ reported that Chris was close to making a plea deal but it all fell apart because the prosecutor and Chris’ attorney, Mark Geragos, couldn’t agree on a statement of fact about the vents that led up to the alleged assault of a photobomber. If Chris had pled guilty to assault, he wouldn’t have to serve any additional jail time. But Chris has said all along that he didn’t attack this guy and he’s sticking to it. A trial date has been set for September. His bodyguard has already been convicted in this case.

How do you feel about Chris the No Lip Farmer as the next Bachelor!!! A source told RadarOnline that even though Bachelor auditions were held in NYC last week, everybody knows that Chris is their guy. This may or may not be a done deal, though, because Bachelorette fans have been lobbying for Marquel to be the next Bachelor, which would make him the first black Bachelor in the show’s history. Come on, ABC!! Go with Marquel!! #MarquelForBachelor
