Thursday gossip roundup: Are Rihanna and Ashton Kutcher an item?
Rihanna was spotted making a late-night visit to the home of Ashton Kutcher this week, according to TMZ, which posted photos of the singer’s black SUV pulling up to the “Two and a Half Men” star’s home. Rihanna reportedly arrived around midnight — her full security team — and stayed until about 4 a.m. Adding intrigue to the story is the fact that TMZ removed the item from its site shortly after posting it.
Madonna is set to return to Russia on her tour this summer, and the planned visit is already causing controversy as the pop icon says she plans to defy a new statute in St. Petersburg that outlaws promoting homosexuality. “I will come to St. Petersburg to speak up for the gay community and to give strength and inspiration to anyone who is or feels oppressed. I’m a freedom fighter,” Madonna said in an email, according to Bloomberg. “I don’t run away from adversity. I will speak during my show about this ridiculous atrocity.” Madonna is scheduled to perform in Moscow on August 7 and St. Petersburg on August 9.
Minka Kelly and Wilmer Valderrama have been turning heads with their public displays of affection, according to Us Weekly. The rumored couple popped up at Greystone Manor Supperclub in West Hollywood, where “hey were kissing and grinding,” a source says. “They were very flirty and dancing close. They even left with each other.” They were also spotted at Disneyland last month and having dinner earlier this month. So how serious are things getting between Valderrama and Kelly, who split with Yankees star Derek Jeter last year? “I wouldn’t say they’re boyfriend and girlfriend,” a source says. “But he’s started ignoring calls from some of his other girls.”
Rumored couple Amanda Seyfried and Josh Hartnett seem to be enjoying the domestic side of life together. Last week, the pair were spotted grocery shopping in L.A., and this week they hit the beach for a play-date for their dogs, according to People magazine. While her feelings for Hartnett are unconfirmed, Seyfried has made it clear how she feels about her pooch. “I’m obsessed with my dog,” she previously told the magazine. “He’s become my son and my light source and kind of a savior to a lot of people, a lot of my friends.”
NFL star Tim Tebow, who was traded to the New York Jets this week, apparently has things besides football on his mind. Tebow reportedly has his eye on “Glee” star Dianna Agron, despite the actress’ ongoing relationship with “Captain America” sidekick Sebastian Stan, according to Fox News. “Tim has made no secret that he likes Dianna, and told her so, but she has remained faithful to Sebastian,” a source says. But a rumored split between the couple may be just the opening Tebow needs, even if Agron’s rep insists reports of a breakup with Stan are “not true.”
Eddie Cibrian confirms that wife LeAnn Rimes has been in talks about joining the judge’s table on “the X Factor,” according to Extra. “They’ve been talking. I have no idea what’s going on with that. I think they’ve been talking to a lot of people,” Cibrian says. “I think she would be unbelievable on a show like that. As a mentor, which is key for that show ‘The X Factor,’ I think she has a lot of great input and actually could help these people out. Plus, she can sing.”
