Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis
Since divorcing from Demi Moore last November, Ashton Kutcher has already been romantically linked to Rihanna. Since those rumours have been dismissed by both parties, the new girl on the scene is apparently his former 70s show co-star Mila Kunis. The pair have supposedly been friends since they were 15, however the papers have only just caught on to the idea that they may be more than just friends after being pictured furniture shopping together this week followed by dinner. Which of course has excited the press seeing as both starred in films recently focussing on friends ‘with benefits’ who have ‘no strings attached’ who then turn out to have feelings for each other...

Despite ratings falling significantly from the previous year, Simon Cowell has re-hired Gary Barlow for this years The X Factor.

Jessie J: Lesbian?
As Cheryl, Kelly and recently Tulisa have come to realise, being a talent show judge brings with it a lot more publicity than was perhaps sought after, and since Jessie J took the job as a ‘mentor’ on BBC’s The Voice, she too has received the same treatment by the press. Her unauthorised biography was released this week, and the author has apparently disclosed that Jessie J is not in fact bi-sexual as was previously believed, but is 100% gay. The author supposes that her record company persuaded her to make fans believe she was bi as coming out as a lesbian could result in a ‘career damaging backlash’. However, Jessie hit back at the claims by taking to twitter to express her frustration at the rumours:‘Ha! Thanks for writing yet another boring untrue story. I thought I was still dating Tinie (Tempah), NO Ellie G (Goulding), NO Mark Wright....bla bla bla! #cantkeepup #noneofitstrue'
One Direction to Change Name?
One Direction have been unstoppable recently in their quest to become the biggest boy band in the world, and all seemed to be going to plan up until this week when a US punk group also named ‘One Direction’ announced they were suing the boys for trademark infringement. The Californian five-piece claim to have been using the name for a year before one direction were formed by X Factor in 2010 and have hired lawyers to attempt to put an injunction on the group to use the name, as well as asking for $1million in damages and a share in the boy band’s profits so far. Speaking in an interview in Australia this week, Harry Styles and Zayne Malik have defiantly claimed that they refuse to change their name.
Dappy has taken the limelight from Tulisa this week in terms of grabbing headlines when he was arrested on Friday night for getting into a fight involving a group eight men. The bust up took place at a petrol station in Surrey, and a statement released by the police reported that three of the men received ‘serious facial injuries’ as a result of the attack. According to the papers, the confrontation began when Dappy and his friends approached a group of girls and asked them to join them, and after the girls declined, one of the men proceeded to spit in their direction. Dappy and one other are currently held in custody.
