Rumors surfaced this week that Robert Pattinson, devastated by girlfriend Kristen Stewart‘s admission of infidelity, was bowing out of promotional duties for his latest film, “Cosmopolis.” But Pattinson’s reps insist the actor will be showing up to work, according to People magazine. “‘Cosmopolis’ is a film that Robert is very proud of and looks forward to supporting,” his rep says. “No confirmed engagements have been canceled. Any reports to the contrary are inaccurate.”

Victoria Beckham‘s oldest son, Brooklyn, may only be 13 years old, but she’s already keen on playing matchmaker for him — and she has her eyes on Taylor Swift. Serving as Guest Editor for the latest issue of Glamour, Beckham describes Swift as “so gorgeous and wholesome that I want my son to date her someday” despite a nine-year age difference between the two. Beckham also reveals that she and husband David having a fifth child isn’t out of he question: “I’d never say never about another baby,” she writes. “It’s a juggling act — a career, family, a husband who’s busy. But I’d never say never.”

Anyone looking for news of Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber taking their relationship to the next level will have to wait — and wait a while, if Gomez has anything to say about it. “Marriage and all that other stuff I think will happen once I feel accomplished in every other aspect of my life,” the former Disney star tells Teen Vogue. “I don’t take anything in my personal life too seriously.”

Police swarmed the Hollywood Hills home of Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth this week after a bogus 911 call claimed someone was trying to break in and gunshots had been fired, according to TMZ. Luckily the couple is out of town or there could’ve been a much different outcome when officers arrived, guns drawn. Authorities are looking into who made the false call.

Macaulay Culkin‘s team is fighting back against a recent National Enquirer story claiming the actor is addicting to heroin and likely only has six months to live the way he’s going. “The report in the National Enquirer that Macaulay Culkin is addicted to heroin and assorted hallucinogenics is not only categorically without merit, but it is also impossibly and ridiculously fictitious,” Culkin’s publicist says in a statement. The tabloid story featured sources who allege Culkin is “addicted to heroin, oxycodone, Percocet and Vicodin,” with one source claiming firsthand knowledge: “I have witnessed his drug-taking, which has escalated over the past year and a half to the point where he needs serious help.”

Jennifer Lopez
is suing tabloids Star magazine and In Touch Weekly for running a story alleging that her boyfriend, Casper Smart, has been spending quality time at a New York peepshow that’s known to be a “gay cruising spot,” according to RumorFix. “These statements are false, malicious and defamatory. Ms. Lopez and Mr. Smart will pursue all remedies available to them under the law,” an attorney for the couple says. A rep insists that Smart was actually visiting a tattoo parlor next door to the club.
