Seal may be getting a lot of attention from lambasting Heidi Klum for “deciding to fornicate with the help,” but Klum is keeping it classy when it comes to her own comments. “I cherish all of the great memories Seal and I created together over the years. Our separation was based on issued between the two of us,” Klum says in a statement to Us Weekly. “Seal has moved on and so have I. My priority has and continues to be protecting and providing for our children.”

Prince Harry
made his first public appearance since photos chronicling his naked Las Vegas partying hit the tabloids, attending the WellChild Awards in London, according to People magazine. One attendee, 6-year-old leukemia patient Alex Logan, had planned to make light of the prince’s recent scandal, saying in a TV interview he was going to tell Harry, “I’m glad you kept your clothes on.” But when the moment arrived, the prince headed him off: “You keep looking up at your mum. It looks like you’re dying to say something but you’re worried she’ll tell you off,” Harry told Logan when they met. “I heard you were on ITV earlier and you said something cheeky, but let’s not talk about that here.”

Chris Evans and Minka Kelly have reportedly begun dating again, rekindling their romance that flickered briefly in 2007, according to Us Weekly. “She did a number on him back then,” a source says. “But she reached out to Chris this time.” In the meantime, the actress dated New York Yankees star Derek Jeter from 2008 to 2011. While the pair have reportedly been hitting the town in Boston and New York in the past month, Evans’ friends hope he takes it slow: “He’s still a little insecure, so he’s being cautious,” a pal tells the magazine.

Michael Jackson was reportedly a mess during preparations for his “This Is It” tour in the weeks leading up to his death, according to 250 pages of emails between executives for AEG, the tour’s backer, obtained by the L.A. Times. “MJ is locked in his room drunk and despondent,” AEG’s Randy Phillips writes. “I [am] trying to sober him up.” Phillips’ attempts to get the singer to work apparently didn’t go well: “I screamed at him so loud the walls are shaking,” he writes. “He is an emotionally paralyzed mess riddled with self-loathing and doubt now that it is show time.”

Justin Bieber
‘s tattoo addiction continues, as the 18-year-old singer debuted his latest work, a small crown on his chest, in a shirtless photo on Twitter. Bieber’s other numerous tattoos include a portrait of Jesus on one leg and a pair of praying hands on the other, the Hebrew word for Jesus on his ribcage and the word “believe” on his forearm. The crown marks Bieber’s seventh tattoo. He also took the chance to tease himself for posting so many topless photos of himself on Twitter, writing, “I’m thinking to myself ‘wow really justin 3 shirtless pics in 3 days’ who do I think I am a young [Mark Wahlberg]?”
