Katie Holmes may not have gotten much of a payoff in her divorce settlement from Tom Cruise, but she is still reportedly making off with “millions of dollars” in items she received from Cruise during their five-year marriage, according to Radar Online. “Tom was extremely generous to Katie with lavish gifts during their marriage, and she will be keeping millions of dollars of jewelry, Hermes handbags and other luxurious items,” a source says. “”Tom gave Katie diamond earrings as a birthday gift one year that easily cost over $500,000, and he had custom design pieces made for her. Under terms of the divorce, Katie is keeping all of the jewelry, handbags, accessories and designer clothing. What she does with it is up to her. For the time being, the jewels are being kept in a very safe place — and knowing Katie, it’s likely she will one day give them to Suri, once she is old enough.”

After almost a year together, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are still going strong, according to People magazine. The happy couple was spotted in New York City last week celebrating Lively’s 25th birthday with an indulgent treat at Serendipity 3. “They were very attentive to each other, sitting close and very into each other,” an eyewitness says. “They were oblivious to what was going on around them.”

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie squeezed in a little late-summer vacation time, taking four of their six kids to the coastal town of Le Touquet, France, over the weekend, according to People magazine. Pitt and Jolie treated daughters Zahara, Shiloh and Vivienne along with son Knox to pizza before letting them loose on a local toy store Jolie had visited before. “I wasn’t notified of their visit. I didn’t expect it. I didn’t even recognize them. I said ‘bonjour,’ like I do to all my clients and then I saw Brad Pitt,” an employee of Culture Kid tells the magazine. “Since Angelina was here with her son last year, the shop has moved — but they found us.”

Looks like John Mayer really was in the mood for some major change. After reportedly breaking up with Katy Perry following a few weeks of dating, the singer unveiled a new, shorter haircut, ditching the curly locks he’d been sporting for a while, according to Us Weekly. And while Mayer seems to be moving on, Perry is reportedly not taking the split very well. “She’s really upset about it,” a source says. “She is making it seem like it wasn’t serious with John, but she is hurt.”

Despite the mega-success of the “Twilight” film franchise, Kellan Lutz kind of misses the good old days. “My favorite moments were during the first movie, before any of this craze happened. We were just ourselves, no one really knew who we were yet,” Lutz tells Us Weekly. “We haven’t changed per se, but we were able to get away with a lot more.” And while some members of the cast have dealt with the spotlight better than others, Lutz insists the series’s popularity caught them all off guard. “I don’t really like to comment on everyone else’s process, but I think we’ve all done the best we could with this,” he says. “It can be surreal sometimes. I don’t know if we all knew what we were fully getting into on all fronts.”
