Leo and Blake heating up

Leonardo DiCaprio’s European tour with rumored girlfriend Blake Lively continues, though the pair are doing their best to not be seen together. After a trip to Italy, DiCaprio and Lively returned to France, where they were twice spotted leaving the Saint-Paul de Vence hotel in Saint-Paul separately, according to Us Weekly. The next day, they returned to Cannes, where they were first spotted together two weeks ago, and boarded a yacht. “Blake is definitely being wooed,” a source says.

Sheen’s home up for sale

Just days after Charlie Sheen announced he is selling his infamous Los Angeles mansion — which he dubbed “Sober Valley Ranch” during his in-home rehab earlier this year — he already has an offer. The home is listed at $7.2 million, but adult entertainment company YouPorn is reportedly offering $4.5 million in cash, according to TMZ. There’s more to the offer, though, as the company wants to move several of Sheen’s favorite porn stars into the 5-bedroom, 7-bathroom estate and offer him 24-hour-a-day access.

Cheryl Cole cashes in

While Cheryl Cole won’t be making the jump to the U.S. “X Factor” after all, she won’t go back to England empty-handed, as the axed judge will reportedly still take home her full salary for the season, according to The Sun. Cole, who was dropped from the show four days into rehearsal, will take home nearly $2 million, sources say. Hopefully the payout will help ease some of the guilt Simon Cowell is reportedly feeling over the sudden change. “He loves Cheryl and did everything in his power to get her on U.S. TV,” a source says.
