Still a flame there? Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt are not letting their reconnection go to waste, though a reconciliation is not in the cards as of now.
“Jen and Brad are still in touch and speak, but there still isn’t anything going on romantically between them,” a source tells Us Weekly exclusively. The insider adds that Aniston “is also in touch with Brad’s mom,” noting that the women “are close and have been for a while.”
The Friends alum, 50, and Pitt, 55, made headlines in February when he was unexpectedly spotted at her birthday party in Los Angeles. “Jen spoke to Brad briefly. At one point she hugged him and thanked him for coming. … It didn’t seem like that big of a deal to Jen,” a source revealed to Us at the time. “The invite went out to a ton of people and he accepted. She was happy he was there, but that was it. She was busy making the rounds and excited to see so many people near and dear to her.”
The Fight Club star “didn’t stay all that long and ducked out before most people,” according to the insider.
After doing an amazing job at the Grammy’s we might have another mentor from ‘The Voice,’ getting her own talk-show like Kelly Clarkson – that would be Alicia Keys.
“Alicia dazzled TV executives with the job she did hosting the Grammys. No-one knew she could do that. She is often thought of as just a brilliant musician and several CBS insiders were nervous that Keys wouldn’t have enough energy to host a TV show, but they all now admit that they were wrong,” sources tell STRAIGHT SHUTER. “Several networks are interested in Alicia and looking to do a show based around music and musicians rather than a traditional ‘Ellen’ type talk-show.”
Corey Feldman is clarifying his statements from earlier this week that seemed to defend Michael Jackson.
Like many people, the Lost Boys star tuned in to watch HBO’s controversial documentary Leaving Neverland, which details disturbing claims made by James Safechuck and Wade Robson that Jackson sexually abused them for years as children. Feldman, who has said he was sexually abused by people in the industry as a child, appeared on HLN Wednesday explaining this has been “a very emotional time for me.”
“I ask people to put themselves in my shoes,” he began. “You’re a kid who has endured sexual abuse and during those times, I’m looking to somebody like Michael Jackson as a friend, as a big brother figure. And he was that person to me.”
The 47-year-old actor and activist continued, “However, as you’re friends with this guy, all of a sudden you start to hear more and more accusations being thrown around by various people and it comes to a point where — as an advocate for victims, as an advocate for changing the statutes of limitations to make sure victims voices are heard — it becomes impossible for me to remain virtuous and not at least consider what’s being said and not listen to what the victims are saying.”
Feldman said it is “important” that people give Safechuck and Robson a “voice.”
“We must allow them to speak and therefore, we must consider all sides of this, even as uncomfortable as that might be,” he explained.
One thing Feldman isn’t backtracking on is the nature of his relationship with the iconic singer. “Absolutely nothing inappropriate ever happened,” he maintained. “We were friends.”
