Thursday gossip roundup: Johnny Depp has a crush on bisexual Amber Heard


Newly single Johnny Depp is reportedly hung up on his “Rum Diary” co-star, Amber Heard. The only problem is the feeling isn’t exactly mutual, according to Radar Online. “Johnny and Amber have been having a lot of fun spending time with one another, but Amber keeps telling him she’s not interested in being with him in a monogamous relationship,” a source says. “She says she feels she’s too young for him, but the main factor is Amber prefers dating women over men and has no interest in committing to a guy — even if he is Johnny Depp.”

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are reportedly getting pretty domestic, even going so far as to host a small Christmas party for their friends, according to Hollywood Life. “Kristen and Rob had a small, intimate Christmas tree decorating party on Sunday. They have a gorgeous tree set up at Kristen’s, where Rob pretty much lives now,” a source says. “They are not living with each other but they are spending plenty of time with each other and they do sleep over often. They are in a really magical place right now despite some lingering trust issues on Rob’s side.”

“Homeland” star Claire Danes and husband Hugh Dancy welcomed their first child, a son, this week, her rep confirms to People magazine. Cyrus Christopher Dancy was born Monday “exactly at 3 p.m.,” Dancy reportedly told friends and family in an email, according to Page Six. “Mother and baby are well, healthy and happy.” Danes and Dancy first met filming “Evening” in 2006 and married in 2009.

Taylor Swift and Harry Styles have had some interesting dates, and now the fledgling couple can add visiting a tattoo parlor to the list. Swift accompanied Styles earlier this week to L.A.’s Shamrock Tattoo Parlor, where he had an ornate pirate ship inked onto his bicep, according to Us Weekly. “Harry and Taylor seem to be very close friends. Taylor was enjoying her first experience in a tattoo shop while Harry got some new ink,” artist Freddy Negrete tells the magazine. “They’re great people having a good time. Tattoos are always fun.”

Lindsay Lohan continues to face financial problems along with her legal troubles. Aside from owing more back taxes to the IRS and a little less than $20,000 to a storage unit rental company, the troubled actress reportedly claims she wants to see a therapist but can’t afford to. Well, her father, Michael Lohan, has quite the Christmas present for her — if she’s willing to seek a specific kind of help. “The cost of rehab will be taken care of if she wants or agrees to go,” Lohan tells Hollyscoop. “I believe she wants it, now the ball is in her court. I will arrange for the right treatment program for as long as it takes, which is six months or more.”
