Are serial on-again, off-again romancers Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez back on again? They certainly looked pretty cozy in an Instagram photo Bieber posted from a Fourth of July party along with the hashtag “heartbreaker.” Gomez also pops up in an Instagram video posted by Bieber’s pal Alfredo Flores at the same party. If they are back together again, Gomez’s friends certainly aren’t thrilled about it, according to Radar Online. “Selena’s friends have stuck by her through thick and thin, but the whole back-and-forth relationship with Bieber is really starting to wear on then,” a source says. “None of her friends really like Justin — or at least, they don’t like Selena with Justin. It’s just not a healthy relationship. He has something on her. She knows he’s not the right thing for her, but she can’t stay away.”

Neil Patrick Harris has now hosted the Tonys four times and will host his second Emmys ceremony this September, so naturally the Oscars are right around the corner for him, right? “Someday. Who knows?” Harris offers modestly, according to E! News. “That’s the kind of question if you say, ‘No, I don’t want to do it,’ you look like a d—, and if you say, ‘I’m dying to do it,’ you look like a d—. So you’re kind of left in the middle.”

In the wake of his apparently choking wife Nigella Lawson in public last month, Charles Saatchi is divorcing the celebrity chef, he confirms to the Mail. “I am sorry to announce that Nigella Lawson and I are getting divorced,” Saatchi says. “I feel that I have clearly been a disappointment to Nigella during the last year or so, and I am disappointed that she was advised to make no public comment to explain that I abhor violence of any kind against women, and have never abused her physically in any way.” Lawson hasn’t made a public comment about this either.

Despite some griping about marriage being “hard” earlier this year, Gwyneth Paltrow insists that getting hitched to Coldplay front-man Chris Martin was a great idea. When asked by Good Housekeeping about the best decision she’s made in her life so far, Paltrow says, “To marry my husband.” In May, her thoughts on marriage to Glamour magazine sounded more weary, though: “It’s hard being married,” Paltrow told the magazine. “You go through great times, you go through terrible times.” Paltrow and Martin celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary this coming December.

Some men like to relax with a nice glass of scotch when they get home, but for Channing Tatum nothing beats nudity. The recently crowned Sexiest Man Alive tells Elle magazine that he can’t fight the urge to strip down the second he walks in the door. “I have a really nice back porch where the pool is,” he says. “Once the shoes are off, the socks come off too, and then everything else downstairs just follows at some point.”
