Maybe he was hoping that if enough time passed, people would forget he’s a kinky wannabe cannibal and he could hang on to that one acting job he had lined up. But nope! Armie Hammer has officially been dropped from his last remaining movie project, a CIA/Russian thriller called “Billion Dollar Sky.” So now, Armie has no agent, no publicist, no projects, no nothing. Meantime, the LAPD is investigating a woman’s claim that back in 2017, Armie raped her and held her hostage for four hours. So far, he has not been arrested over any claims.

Filming of the new “Obi-Wan Kenobi” series for Disney+ begins in April! According to the series’ description, “The story begins 10 years after the dramatic events of ‘Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith’ where Kenobi faced his greatest defeat, the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker turned evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.” Ewan McGregor is back as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Hayden Christensen is back as Darth Vader. Several more actors have been added to the Disney+ series, including Kumail Nanjiani, Joel Edgerton, Rupert Friend, and O’Shea Jackson Jr., aka Ice Cube Jr. Meantime, “Spider-Man 3” starring current Spider-Man Tom Holland has wrapped filming, but we’ve gotten some more clues that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield are involved in some way. A stunt coordinator posted about the end of filming and thanked a lot of people, including Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man stunt double from his trilogy. And a few days ago, Andrew Garfield‘s Spider-Man stunt double posted and then deleted a picture of himself alongside Tom Holland‘s stunt double on a movie set. Tom Holland and Marvel executives have said repeatedly that Andrew and Tobey will not be in the movie, but come on……We’ll know for sure in December when “Spider-Man: No Way Home” hits theaters.

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are weathering a serious storm in their relationship. A few weeks ago — the day we left for spring break! — we heard they broke up. Twenty-four hours later, they released a statement saying they’re working on things. Then A-Rod flew to the Dominican Republic where Jennifer has been filming her “Shotgun Wedding” movie, and they let paparazzi capture photos of them kissing and being snuggly on JLo’s balcony. But now….Is Jennifer sending Alex a message on social media? She posted some sexy videos on Sunday, looking hot in a bikini while listening to DJ Khaled’s song “Popstar”…..featuring DRAKE. You may or may not remember, but Jennifer and Drake dated for a hot minute back in 2016.

Zayn is married” was trending online yesterday and fans were freaking out. Ingrid Michaelson was doing a live stream, talking about how she recently collaborated with Zayn Malik on a song. She said, “We’ve never met, I’ve never spoken to him…He’s such a private person and now he’s married and has a child, so he does the things he wants to do…” Wait, what?? So news that Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid had gotten hitched blew up the internet. When Ingrid realized what had happened, she jumped back on Instagram to apologize for speaking out of turn. She said, “…He’s not married. As far as I know, he’s not married. It was a mistake. I’m so sorry, I said I was sorry. I don’t live in this world. So the level of fame, it makes me really, truly admire Zayn and anybody with that level of fame. Every little thing you say is just, Wow! I’m not built for it.” She added, “My apologies to Zayn and Gigi, if any of this trickles to you and is annoying. I’m sorry—that’s not my intention. And to his fans, I’m sorry for getting you all riled up, and much love to you all. And I’m gonna go to sleep now.”
