Tuesday gossip roundup: Is Russell Brand rebounding with Zooey Deschanel?

It's finally clear: They are the same person.

Although she’s undergoing treatment at upscale rehab facility Cirque Lodge in Utah, Demi Moore hasn’t been spending time with other patients, including Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife Brooke Mueller, according to Radar Online. “[Demi] hasn’t had any interaction with other patients yet. She is still in detox at the moment,” a source says. “Brooke hasn’t talked to or seen Demi. This is simply because they are in different stages of treatment.” Moore is expected to complete a 30-day round of treatment at the facility.

In the wake of his split from Katy Perry, Russell Brand has reportedly set his sights on “New Girl” star Zooey Deschanel — and has been sending her “fun, flirty texts,” according to Hollyscoop. Sources say that Brand “thinks she’s hysterically funny and cute, too. He loves her quirky sense of humor, and thinks they’d be great together both on-and-off screen.” Coincidentally, Deschanel filed for divorce from husband Ben Gibbard just days before Brand filed for divorce from Perry.

While in recent years Angelina Jolie has seemed to tame the bad-girl ways that made her famous, Brad Pitt insists — rather coyly — that her at-home behavior is still pretty fun. “She’s still a bad girl,” Brad says in an interview with CBS This Morning. “Delightfully so. It’s not for public consumption.”

Beyonce showed off her post-baby body in her first public outing since giving birth a month ago, attending husband Jay-Z’s charity concert at Carnegie Hall, according to Us Weekly. The new mom reportedly made the most of her night out at the concert’s after-party, as well. “She made a much bigger effort to say hello to nearly everyone, making rounds around the whole club before joining Jay-Z and guests in the VIP room,” a source says.

All of David Beckham’s professional bona fides didn’t matter when it came to challenging a referee at his son’s soccer match recently, as the heated exchange ended up with Beckham being forced to leave the field. “The kids are 7 years old and he sent the kid off,” Beckham tells Jonathan Ross during an interview, defending his actions. “I was like, ‘Come on, he’s 7, referee, you can’t send him off.’”

Given how much the “Twilight” franchise has changed his life, it’s no surprise Robert Pattinson tends to give a lot of thought to the vampire series — and the ramifications of its success. “Doing something like ‘Twilight’ opens doors and it closes others,” Pattinson tells the Herald Scotland. “You can say, ‘Oh if I was still unknown, then no one would judge me. But at the same time, nobody would give a s— either. It’s a weird little balance.”
