Tuesday gossip roundup: President Obama hopes Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj make up

Scarlett Johansson has split up with boyfriend Nate Naylor just weeks after she was spotted looking cozy with ex Jared Leto at a political event, according to Daily Mail. How official is the split? Naylor was even spotted clearing his belongings out of Johansson’s New York home. “They never officially lived together, but Nate has moved all of his stuff out and back into his apartment,” a source says. “The relationship is over. It has not been amicable.”

“Twilight” star Ashley Greene has found a downside to being in the super-successful franchise: getting spoiled when it comes to travel. “‘Twilight’ has ruined me,” Greene tells Marie Clare magazine. “When this is all over, flying internationally is going to be very hard for me. It is just not worth it to buy a first class ticket, because of the cost.” Worth it or not, Greene should have no trouble paying for a ticket, though, as she’s been smart with her “Twilight” salary. “I’m lucky because my dad taught me to be frugal and save,” she says. “And that’s important because I want to know that I don’t have to take an acting job for two or three years if I don’t want to.”

It seems everyone is worried about troubled starlet Amanda Bynes these days, including former “What I Like About You” co-star Jennie Garth. “I tried reaching out to her and I haven’t been able to reach her,” Garth tells Us Weekly. “My heart feels for whatever she is going through and I love her dearly.” Garth isn’t alone in feeling disconnected, as Bynes’ parents have reportedly been getting the cold shoulder from the actress, who is facing multiple charges stemming from her dangerous driving record. “Amanda shut them out and isn’t speaking to them,” a source say.

As he continues his campaign for re-election, U.S. President Barack Obama is addressing all of the top pressing issues — including the feud between “American Idol” judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj. “I think that they are going to be able to sort it out, I am confident,” Obama said during an interview with Miami’s Y100 radio station. “I’m all about bringing people together, working for the same cause. I think both outstanding artists are going to be able to make sure that they’re moving forward and not going backwards.”
