Demi Moore fledging romance with 31-year-old restauranteur Harry Morton is reportedly heating up, according to E! News. “They have been trying to keep it a secret,” a source says. “It’s not a serious thing, but it may develop into something. They have a lot of fun together and have been meeting in secret places in New York and Los Angeles.” The pair were recently spotted dining out in Beverly Hills and have reportedly spent several nights together at Moore’s home. Morton famously dated Lindsay Lohan in 2006 and has also been linked to Jennifer Aniston.

Jennifer Lawrence is now a Golden Globe-winning actress, but she’ll be celebrating solo, as Lawrence and “X-Men: First Class” co-star Nicholas Hoult have reportedly called it quits, according to Us Weekly. The young stars met on the set of the superhero film and dated for two years. The split comes as a surprise, as Lawrence was singing Hoult’s praises recently to Elle magazine. “He is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I’m his best friend, too,” she told the magazine. “He’s my favorite person to be around and he makes me laugh harder than anybody.”

Consider this fair warning, Harry Styles. In the wake of her split from the One Direction member, Taylor Swift posted this ominous message to her Twitter account: “Back in the studio. Uh oh…” Swift has made a career of penning autobiographical tunes of heartbreak, often embarrassing ex-boyfriends like John Mayer and Jake Gyllenhaal. And a Styles number may be a doozy, as Swift was reportedly left heartbroken by the Brit, who dumped her during a Caribbean vacation because he said she’s “asexual and wouldn’t put out,” a source tells Radar Online.

Josh Brolin doesn’t pull any punches when discussing his rough-and-tumble youth as the son of actor James Brolin, telling Men’s Journal that he lost his virginity at 11, joined a surf gang called the Cito Rats and even got involved with heroin. “I was the last [gang member] to get into heroin — I smoked it — and the first to get out. I was around 16 or 17, so it was around the time of ‘the Goonies,’” Josh tells the magazine. “But I liked working and learning, so it was very difficult for me to lend myself to that drug completely.”

We now know when to expect a royal birth announcement, as Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s first child is due this summer, St. James Palace announced. “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to confirm they are expecting a baby in July,” the statement reads. “The Duchess’s condition continues to improve since her stay in hospital last month.” As the statement says, the “baby” is due in July, so those hoping for royal twins will be disappointed.
