The Word: Chris Brown and Rihanna are no longer. Probably.

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

The soap opera between Chris Brown and Rihanna continues: The on-again, off-again couple with the rocky past has reportedly called it quits, according to E! News. While Brown has been spotted in New York entertaining a mystery blonde, Rihanna has finishing up her latest international tour and spending time in L.A. between gigs, but sources say there’s no new man in her life and that she’s shifting her focus off her love life and onto planning future tours and launching a new fragrance line.

Berry: ‘feels fantastic’
After confirming that she is pregnant with her second child, Halle Berry is speaking out herself about the joyous news. “I feel fantastic,” the Oscar-winner tells CNN of expecting a baby with fiancé Olivier Martinez. “This has been the biggest surprise of my life, to tell you the truth. I thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me. So it’s been a big surprise and the most wonderful.” While reports have claimed that Berry is expecting a boy, she’s playing coy about gender, saying only, “I don’t know, I don’t know.”

Drake takes on Bieber’s fans
Former “Drake & Josh” star Drake Bell is picking a fight with Justin Bieber’s fans online, which may not be the smartest move. “I don’t ‘hate’ Justin Bieber. His fans are the problem,” Bell tweeted last month, but this past weekend he really got into it. “I love when beliebers say they loved me on ['Drake & Josh'] but what happened to the old Drake,” he wrote. “[Bieber], you have the most insane fans in the world.” He also poked fun at Bieber himself, and the stunt inevitably earned him a slew of angry responses. “Putting a moratorium on tweets about beliebers,” he finally wrote. “Just wanted to show how sick and twisted people can get.”

Don’t mess with the ‘A-Team’
Liam Neeson and Bradley Cooper are suing a pair of companies for allegedly using photos of the “A-Team” co-stars in advertisements without their permission, according to court documents procured by E! News. Neeson and Cooper claim Vutec Corporations and First Impressions Theme Theaters are guilty of trademark infringement, negligence and  violating their rights of privacy and publicity for using their images in print and online ads and in other promotional materials. The suit was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court. The actors are seeking damages and attorney fees.

Bynes on her ‘fake’ stories
Amanda Bynes takes issue with Page Six’s story earlier this week that she her erratic behavior during a gymnastics class got her booted. “I’m suing every blog saying I was kicked out of gymnastics,” Bynes posted on Twitter. What is wrong with you people? What would you do if you found fake stories about you?” Also, to make good on her earlier request that online outlets only use photos from her Twitter account and not unflattering paparazzi shots when reporting on her, Bynes posted a slew of photos from the last few years to Twitter, nothing which ones are her favorites.
