Monday gossip roundup: Katie Holmes is ready for love

Narciso Rodriguez Kohl's Collection Launch Party

Katie Holmes is reportedly ready to start dating again after her split from Tom Cruise, but the sources say the fallout from their divorce is still having an effect on her, according to Radar Online. “Katie’s in a dilemma, because she wants to date but is concerned where it could lead to from there,” source says. “She’s worried that if she commits herself fully to another man, she will have to give up the freedom she’s enjoying so much at the moment. As a single woman, she has no one controlling her nowadays, telling her what to do or who to see and she absolutely loves it.  However, at the same time, she also misses being with someone special to share experiences with and she doesn’t want to be alone for the rest of her life.”

A month after what seemed like a pretty permanent breakup, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez reportedly reunited at Bieber’s L.A. home recently, according to Us Weekly. The “Spring Breakers” actress was spotted leaving Bieber’s place in the morning after reportedly spending the night. It’s unclear whether the meeting was romantic or not. “It never ends,” an exasperated source tells the magazine. “We’ll see. It’s such drama with them.”


Demi Moore
is spending more time with restauranteur Harry Morton, fueling speculation that the pair is getting serious, according to Us Weekly. Donning a tight dress and five-inch heels, Moore joined Morton for a cozy dinner at a West Hollywood restaurant this weekend. “She looked really very happy,” a source says. Sources seem to be conflicting each other on the nature of Moore and Morton’s relationship, with E! News reporting that they’ve been quietly dating for months while Us Weekly’s sources insist they “are absolutely not dating.”

One Direction’s Harry Styles celebrated his 19th birthday Friday with the help of a stripper, a gift sent over from a London radio DJ, according to Sun. Styles, for his part, found the act more comical than sexy. “It was great. I was in stitches. It was really funny,” Styles tells the newspaper of the act, in which the woman was dressed as a cop. “The funniest part was that when she finished she said, ‘I’m really sorry. I couldn’t find my truncheon, so I had to bring my nun-chucks.’ That was a bit weird.” And lest any of his young fans think anything to untoward happened: “She stripped down to her underwear,” according to Styles, “but unfortunately there was a no-nudity policy in the bar.”

Channing Tatum
finds pregnant wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum‘s cravings fascinating. “She never really ate sweets before,” he tells E! News. “But she loves sweets now. She loves chocolate and that whole thing, but nothing really out of the ordinary, nothing like pickles and icing, nothing weird.” He also calls her pregnancy “one of the sexiest things ever.” Meanwhile, Tatum says he and his wife are still in the dark about whether they’re having a boy or a girl. “We don’t know,” he says. “We’re going to be surprised. It’s one of the only real surprises you’re ever going to get that’s legit.”
