Wednesday gossip roundup: Bruno Mars is not gay

Bruno Mars performs on stage at the Revlon concert for the Rainforest Fund at Carnegie Hall.

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are reportedly looking to tie the knot as soon as this summer, according to People magazine. “Justin and Jessica are planning a big [summer] wedding,” a source says. “Jessica initially wanted a smaller, more intimate wedding, but Justin from the beginning wanted a big wedding and that’s what they have decided on.” He also apparently wants to be in fantastic shape for the big day: “Justin has put on a few pounds recently after working out a lot for a movie role, but now with the summer in sight he’s back in the gym and working out harder than ever,” the source adds. ‘He’s seen the effort Jessica puts in order to stay fit and looking healthy and he doesn’t want to go the other way. She’s inspired him to get fit again.”

Despite near-constant rumors of a baby on the way, Prince William and Kate Middleton are definitely not making any big announcements soon, a source assures Us Weekly. “Kate is not pregnant or about to make a pregnancy announcement,” the source says. There are plenty of other reasons for the royal couple to celebrate, though, as their first anniversary is coming up at the end of this month and William just completed a six-week deployment in Argentina.

Liam Hemsworth must have heard the rumors about he and Miley Cyrus being engaged, because he’s making it clear that it’s far too early for anything like that. “Marriage and kids are way in the future for me,” Hemsworth tells OK! Magazine. “I’m young. It’s not really on my mind at the moment — marriage, kids or anything.” But he is happy to be in a serious relationship with Cyrus since it can be so hard to trust people in Hollywood: “I like to surround myself with good people and good moral values,” he says. “It’s hard sometimes to work out in this town what people want from you — whether they just want to be friends or they really want something else from you.”

Wilmer Valderrama and Minka Kelly continue to stoke relationship rumors after being spotted looking cozy on an afternoon stroll in Sydney, Australia, according to People magazine. The pair strolled along the waterfront, Valderrama keeping his arm around Kelly and smiling. The pair first sparked relationship rumors last month at an L.A. nightclub, where they were “all over each other,” according to a source.

Chevy Chase‘s future on the sitcom “Community” may be in jeopardy after a feud with show creator Dan Harmon, who decided to unload about the dust-up at a recent comedy show he hosts. As Harmon tells it, Chase stormed off set after a particularly difficult scene, eventually sending Harmon an apology via text message. “I said f— you. You breached your contract,” Harmon says. “And then what happened a day later? That night … after what I’m guessing is two bottles of Busch Light?” Harmon then played a voicemail message purportedly from Chase that included the veteran comic actor saying, “If you were here now, I’d f—ing kick your teeth out” and, “You’re not funny. You’re OK.”

Reports of Bruno Mars‘ coming out of the closet as gay are apparently phony, his rep insists to Hollyscoop. “Someone pulled a prank and the world has run with it,” the singer’s rep says. “The Internet is really powerful.” A viewer-submitted CNN story had reported that Mars had told a Chicago radio station that he’s a homosexual. “The timing is bad. I hadn’t realized it was April Fool’s day, but it’s been pointed out to me, and I don’t want to go too public with this,” Mars supposedly said. His rep insists the whole thing was “completely fabricated.”
