As Selena Gomez’s reunion with Justin Bieber appears to be heating up — the pair have reportedly been spotted holding hands, hugging and kissing during their European rendezvous — the “Spring Breakers” stars getting nervous. “Selena’s friends are furious that she’s giving Justin another chance,” a source tells Radar Online. “They’ve been trying to warn her that he’s no good for her and that she should stay away from him, but she just loves the attention he gives her.”

Bynes’ is caught smoking pot
Amanda Bynes’ outlandish behavior reportedly got her kicked out of her New York City gym this weekend when she was caught smoking marijuana in the women’s locker room, according to RumorFix. Management at the Planet Fitness location even went so far as to revoke Bynes’ membership. “Planet Fitness does not allow lunks to work out here, and especially no weed-smokers,” a staff member tells the site. Bynes of course denies the allegations, telling RumorFix, “I don’t smoke in the bathroom. I also don’t smoke pot, I smoke tobacco!”

Perry talks about big ‘D’
Katy Perry is getting more an more comfortable talking about her divorce from Russell Brand, even challenging a Hollywood Reporter staffer’s classification of it as an “elephant in the room” as far as conversations go. “It’s a very tiny elephant,” she says. “It’s like a little tchotchke now. The big D — you can say it.” Brand filed for divorce from Perry in December 2011 after 14 months of marriage.

Cyrus and Hemsworth: ‘Still engaged’
Despite indications of trouble between Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, the pair are “still engaged,” according to E! News. “They live together. The wedding is not off,” a source says. “You can’t postpone a wedding that never had a date in the first place. Their plan all along was to wait a couple of years before even thinking about a date.” As for the eyebrows Cyrus has raised by stepping out multiple times without her wedding ring? “She just doesn’t wear it sometimes,” the source adds. “People shouldn’t read too much into that.”

Reid pulls a ‘don’t you know who I am’?
Tara Reid apparently takes her savings seriously, as the “American Pie” star was reportedly thrown out of an All Saints store in L.A. for throwing a tantrum after being denied a discount, according to the New York Post. “She was screaming,” a source says. “She had to be escorted by security. She seemed drunk.” A rep for Reid challenges that assertion: “She was definitely not drunk. People love to say Tara’s hammered and this and that.” As for why Reid would be so miffed over not getting a discount? “Tara gets a huge discount with All Saints in the U.K. and Paris because she’s a walking billboard for them,” the rep says. “Tara didn’t think it made sense and asked them to check again.”
