Pete Davidson knows he’s lucky to have Ariana Grande in his arms!
“Ummmmmm hiiiiiiiiii. I’m the luckiest contest winner ever.”
Ari responded like a giddy teenager, writing:
“sksjsjsjjajsjaa nahhhh I am.”
OMG, too cute! No, really — tone it down, you two…[Image via Instagram.]

According to a new report from D’Marie Analytics, Kylie Jenner is the first member of the KarJenner brood “to grow her ad equivalent value to over $ 1,000,000 per post across her social media portfolio.”
CEO Frank Spadafora said in a press release:
“Kylie is an undeniable global brand, which may make some roll their eyes… But the reality is this young, female entrepreneur’s savvy helped her reach a milestone in the influencer marketing and advertising industry which many seasoned professionals have failed to achieve.”
While the lip kit queen isn’t the most followed KUWTK star (that’s sister Kim Kardashian), her posts receive an enormous amount of impressions (views across platforms) and engagement. In the past month, Stormi Webster‘s mom received a total of 186,152,410 engagements across her social media platforms.
“Influencer valuations move up and down like the stock market, but Kylie is methodical about consistently generating aspirational content for her social audience, without jeopardizing authenticity… Her use of social media to personally connect with and listen to her fans enables her to deliver products they will actually purchase. This is a true case study for how brands can greatly benefit from working with social media influencers like Kylie.”
In fact, the makeup mogul’s position as “the highest-valued influencer currently on social media today” was previously held by Beyoncé.

Belly and his personal bodyguard tried desperately to protect each other during an unprovoked attack by nearly 20 members of Coachella’s security team. We’ve obtained another angle from Friday night’s beatdown, you can see both Belly and his…
It has been widely reported that Brad Pitt is dating Neri Oxman, an architect and MIT professor.
However, the two halves of this unlikely pairing live on opposite coasts.
A source is revealing how they keep their budding romance going.
Us Weekly reports on how Brad and Neri keep their relationship afloat while living separately and trying (but failing) to keep things a secret.
“They continue to talk on the phone several times a day and are very infatuated with each other.”
Several times a day … would mean that they can only go a few hours at a time without hearing each other’s voices.
That’s incredibly sweet. Especially since their relationship hasn’t been smooth sailing.
“Their busy schedules are going to be a huge challenge.”
Obviously, neither of them can just uproot their lives.
“Because Neri isn’t going to give up her life in Cambridge or her job at MIT for anyone.”
Of course not. Other people might be starstruck, but that’s one of the most prestigious positions that a person could hold.
“Even Brad Pitt.”
At the moment, sources report that they don’t know where their relationship is headed.
“They are going to have fun and see where it goes.”
And there’s a good reason for which they’ve tried to maintain this air of secrecy.
“Neri is extremely uncomfortable with all of the media attention.”
Yeah, this is really pushing her into the spotlight.
“And feels that her personal life has now come under a microscope.”
Sadly, that’s how it works.
“Brad feels badly about this of course, but he is powerless to stop it.”
It really sounds like Brad is in love with Neri.
“Brad’s absolutely smitten by her.”
Some have said that he’s found his “Amal Clooney,” which … does sort of sound like it’s reducing women by types. In this case “smart.”
“Their chemistry is off the charts.”
Which apparently led them to begin a relationship without delay.
“They got romantically involved almost right away.”
Brad sat in on her lecture, and he was apparently entranced by her line of 3-D printed chaise lounges. No, you did not misread that.
For Neri’s sake, he’s committed to trying to keep things on the down low.
“He’s been going to great lengths to make sure he’s not spotted by prying eyes.”
Despite the veil of secrecy and their very separate lives, they’ve reportedly made time for each other.
“Brad and Neri have traveled together internationally on several occasions.”
Including a trip to South Africa, where Neri was a guest speaker — because, remember, she’s a professor.
That said, there are some nay-sayers who claim that these two aren’t dating. A source told Us Weekly:
This source claimed that “this is solely a professional relationship [and] there’s nothing more to it as of now.”
That statement has been referred to as a cover-up.
“They are very much a couple.”
It’s possible that a friend of Brad’s (or Neri’s) was simply being loyal and refusing to confirm Brad’s relationship.
We don’t really know.
But we think that it’s at least safe to say that those rumors of Jennifer Aniston being pregnant with Brad’s baby are not panning out.
“Our family is really close and we’re all here to support each other,” Drew, 39, told Us Weekly and other reporters at WE Day on Thursday, April 19, at The Forum in Inglewood, California. “I mean, the main thing for him and Jacinta, they knew that they weren’t right together. They’re good people, but they’re not right together.”
The realtor added that Jonathan and Kuznetsov, 29, are “still friends” after announcing earlier this month that they had called it quits. Jonathan confirmed the split on April 6, writing via Instagram, “There’s no drama or negativity; no jealousy or hate. Not even sadness or sorrow. Our memories are filled with joy and we will continue to advocate for each theory as friends wherever we go.”
Although his brother is going through a rough patch, Drew and his fiancée, Linda Phan, are preparing to tie the knot in Italy next month. However, Jonathan will likely attend the celebration solo.
“Jonathan hates being set up, so no, we’re not [going to help him try to find a date],” Drew noted to Us. “He’s just coming to spend time with our family and friends.”
As for Drew and Phan? The couple are excited to exchange vows and expand their family shortly after. “We’re not in a mad rush, but we definitely want to have kids soon,” the It Takes Two author revealed. “We’re looking forward to having kids.”
Drew previously spoke to Us about his upcoming nuptials earlier this month. The Dancing With the Stars season 25 alum said he’s especially excited to “look into Linda’s eyes when she walks down the aisle, and knowing that’s the lady I’m going to be with for the rest of my life.”
The HGTV star added: “I’m going to be crying like a fool. But I knew from the moment I met her that she was the one for me.”
With reporting by Carly Sloane.
The Shallows actress, 30, shared a photo that showed her from behind with an elaborate braid as she talked to her husband and put her hand on his shoulder at the premiere of A Quiet Place in NYC on April 2.
“If there’s one thing I’m infinitely proud of in this picture, it’s the incredible hair styling that I did on myself,” she captioned the pic.
The Deadpool star, 41, subsequently posted a reply on the pic, writing, “I was so happy back then.”
“Omg you guys are my favorite on social media,” a fan commented.
The couple, who’ve been married for almost six years and share two daughters, James, 3, and Inez, 18 months, keep things interesting by poking fun at each other on Twitter and Instagram.
Last month Reynolds responded to a report that they are having trouble in their marriage by tweeting, “I wish. I could use a little ‘me time.’”
He also trolled his wife in the recently released trailer for the Deadpool sequel. In one scene, his superhero character can be heard slamming Lively’s Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movie, declaring that it “is straight-up pornography.”
Meanwhile, on Valentine’s Day, the Gossip Girl alum teased her husband by asking him how to use the dating site E-Harmony. “Can you show me how to download that?” she asked Reynolds, adding that ever since the cheating website “Ashley Madison closed I’ve been so lonely.”
The Vanderpump Rules gang doesn’t seem very fun to travel with.
Despite being in Mexico for Jax Taylor‘s birthday, the group didn’t appear to have a good time as they were too busy butting heads over a variety of topics. Monday night’s episode picked up where Bravo viewers left off with Lisa Vanderpump‘s current (and former) SURvers bickering about relationships, both romantic and platonic ones.
For starters, Stassi Schroeder proved once again she has a biting tongue, essentially calling her bestie Kristen Doute an emotional terrorist during vacations. Specifically, Stassi said sharing a space with Kristen was “like having a member of ISIS in your hotel room.” Damnnnnnn.
Apparently, Kristen had an off camera meltdown during the getaway. To be fair, Doute owned her issues and confessed that “traveling freaks [her] brain out.” She also admitted to using “xanax or edibles” to combat her anxiety.
Schroeder defended her harsh stance by bringing up a disastrous trip to Copenhagen, where Kristen’s friends ultimately abandoned her to go to Paris. Sad.
Of course, Stassi and Kristen weren’t the only ones having issues during the vacay. Jax FINALLY confronted Scheana Marie for trying to set up girlfriend Brittany Cartwright with their hot coworker, Adam Spott. Scheana didn’t feel badly about the set up, especially since Jax had recently cheated on Brittany.
The former Mrs. Shay explained that the date was meant to be a “confidence boost,” and added:
“I wanted to arrange a night for Brittany to let loose and have fun and just to know that there is a life possible without you.”
Not to mention, it also served as Scheana’s revenge for Jax telling people boyfriend Rob Valletta didn’t love her. Two birds, one stone, right girl??
Jax clearly wasn’t thrilled at the shady move, as he snarled at his lady:
“If you wanted to leave me, you would have left a long time ago.”
Wowwww. That’s one way to keep a girlfriend.
Now the most bizarre moment from the episode was teased ahead of VPR airing. We’re OBVIOUSLY talking about Lala Kent‘s baby bottle. If you missed our preview coverage, here’s the moment once more…

Though Shannon accused David Beador of hiding money during their divorce, it was rumored that he was going to have to pay through the nose in spousal support.
A new, much more official report says that the amount ended up being less than initially reported. Still, it looks like plenty for Shannon and for her daughters.
But even that payment reduction hasn’t prevented David from allegedly retaliating in petty ways that impact his own children.
Things looked bad for the Beadors for a while — from David’s affair a few years ago to his intensely negative response to Shannon’s minor weight gain.
It was only in late 2017 that they actually took the steps to dissolve their union.
Shannon filed for divorce, because she and David had been living separate lives anyway.
But they’ve been married for a long time, and they share three teenage daughters — Sophie, Adeline, and Stella.
Even while the divorce is ongoing, David is legally obligated to make both spousal support payments and child support payments.
So … how much is Shannon getting right now?
Previously, RadarOnline had reported that Shannon Beador’s child and spousal support came in the amount of $ 30,000 per month.
That was $ 12,000 a month in child support, and $ 18,000 per month in spousal support, based upon the time that the girls spend with each parent and upon how much both parents make.
That is a lot of money, and we don’t just mean to those of us who are mere mortals. Even among the wealthiest Americans, paying this amount in support every month is definitely on the high side.
David certainly thought that the amount was high, as he was reportedly furious over it.
But it looks like, as is so often the case during a contentious divorce, the winds have shifted.
People reports that David now has to pay “only” $ 22,500 each month.
That is a tremendous amount of money in spousal and child support, but not at the level of $ 30,000.
This is a temporary payment order to ensure that Shannon and her daughters (of whom she has joint physical and legal custody) continue to live their lives until the divorce is finalized.
(It is not uncommon for the primary breadwinner in an acrimonious divorce to attempt to financially starve their soon-to-be-ex so that they cannot afford to hire a good attorney and may agree to any settlement just to receive regular payments)
David was reportedly spewing profanities at Shannon after court, which is … not a great look.
Shaking with anger, he reportedly declared that the ruling would bankrupt his business.
If you believe Shannon’s claim that he’s hiding money in order to lower the amount that he’s required to pay, then you might guess that this is all smoke and mirrors.
We mentioned earlier that he had seemed determined to retaliate.
When the court ruled that Shannon would be responsible for all of her expenses from that point forward, David reportedly shut off the water at her home.
Which, yes, means that he (allegedly) shut off the water at the house where his daughters are living. Which is just gross.
He has not commented on this allegation.
Shannon, however, refuses to openly condemn him.
“As David and I continue our divorce proceedings,” she say. “I’m doing everything I can to move things efficiently along so that our three children are not subjected to unnecessary stress during an already difficult time.”
Shannon continues, choosing her words very carefully in a way that won’t be turned against her in court. Smart woman.
“I want to be as fair as possible. I remain focused on a clean resolution and have no interest in engaging in a war of words.”
Some might ask why David would be so furious over paying for his daughters, or how anyone could be so petty as to (allegedly!) turn off the water at the home where his own children live.
To add to that, we’ve heard that David believes that Shannon is keeping his kids from him by badmouthing him.
Insiders, however, say that his children know that he cheated on their mother and have witnessed his behavior over the past couple of years, and that any resentments that they have towards their father is of his own making.
Is this kind of spiteful move over a water bill his idea of winning over his daughters? It’s hard to believe that he’s written them off as “enemies.”
We just don’t know.
The winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, are over, but the games have just begun for best friend figure skaters Adam Rippon and Ashley Wagner. The pair stopped by Us Weekly studios recently to go head-to-head to see how well they know each other. Watch them duke it out in the video above!
Wagner, 26, thinks she knows her best friend well. When asked what Rippon’s pre-performance meal is, she answered with certainty: “He doesn’t have a pre-performance meal. I can tell you he really likes toasts more than anything else in the world,” she explained. “Should he be eating that before a competition? No. He probably does though.”
The recent bronze medalist, 28, confirmed her answer when he told Us: “Usually when we’re at competitions, I have a trail mix or like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. She was right to go [with] the grains.”
But when it came to Rippon knowing Wagner, he wasn’t as on point as she was. “She’s probably binge watching RuPaul’s Drag Race. Well, she’d better be,” he guessed about Wagner’s favorite show.
The California native answered: “I am binge watching Altered Carbon and my mind is absolutely blown. The show is insane. Adam will not know that.”
“I don’t even know what that is. Being straight is exhausting,” he joked in response.
For more fun with the duo – and to find out how they met and what Rippon’s drink of choice is – watch the video above.
This is an unbreakable bond, for real!!!
Even though they’re not dating any more — after being together for about six years before breaking up in June 2016 — Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama are STILL spotted in public together from time to time!!
Most recent outing: Saturday afternoon in the San Fernando Valley area of El Lay!
Paparazzi pics captured Demi and Wilmer enjoying a lunch together at Sol Y Luna, a Mexican restaurant in the Valley, and eyewitnesses that were there confirmed the pair was super friendly and close with each other as they are foods including homemade guacamole.
****Pauses to fantasize about eating homemade guacamole****
Oh, sorry! OK, back to Demi and Wilmer — the two are obviously really close, even now after their relationship has ended, but doesn’t it make you wonder??
Like, are they candidates to reunite?? It’s been nearly two years since their breakup, and they both still say REALLY nice things about each other! There’s obviously a maturity here — and a connection!
What do U think, Perezcious readers — is it a big deal that Demi and Wilmer still hang out?? Red flag here for their future relationships? Are they destined to get back together?! Or is this just two close friends now who can see each other now and again with no drama??
Let us know your opinions in the comments (below)!!!

Farrah Abraham … look, she’s not the brightest, OK?
Not by a very, very long shot.
Ever since Farrah became famous for being a Teen Mom, she’s made one questionable decision after another.
Sometimes those decisions are the result of harmless ignorance, like the time she got ripped off trying to sell a car online, or all the random, dumb things that fall out of her mouth on a daily basis.
But other times those decisions come from … we don’t even know what to call it, but it’s a real bad place.
For example, her choice to pull her daughter Sophia out of school so she could homeschool her when we’re a little doubtful that she technically understands the English language herself?
That’s a next-level bad decision.
And wouldn’t you know it, Farrah went and made ANOTHER one of those terrible choices this week — and we’re not even talking about the ridiculous idea she had to try and sue Viacom for being fired from Teen Mom OG.
Nope, this one is way, way worse. In many ways.
On Thursday night, Farrah did a quick little interview with TMZ, and she did kick things off by talking about her lawsuit.
She was asked how she felt about being fired for doing adult films — which we know is just part of the reason she was let go — and she said “Every celebrity has a celebrity sex tape so … that just means you’re more famous, I guess.”
That didn’t answer the question at all, and it’s also definitely not true, but of course we never expect Farrah to make sense, so that’s fine.
When asked if that was a double standard (we really have no idea already what’s happening in this interview), she said “There’s a lot of double standards and discrimination, women aren’t treated equally, so I just do what’s right.”
“If nobody else wants to change the world for better, that’s fine, but I want to, and that’s my prerogative, I guess.”
Sure thing, girl.
Next she was asked about her feelings about the lawsuit, if she was nervous at all.
“I mean, I’ve never lost any lawsuit I’ve ever been in,” she answered.
She also said “My legal team is read, Viacom’s not ready.”
Whatever you say, Farrah.
Lastly, and this is the thing we really want to get into, the subject of Kim Kardashian’s most recent scandal came up for some reason — the scandal where she posted that topless photo that she said North took for her.
“You know, there’s a lot of other celebrities who are nude all over the place on social media, but they’re not called porn stars,” she laughed.
And then she dropped this uncomfortable bombshell:
“My daughter and I run around the house naked, and we just live life free. I mean, we have naked pictures on our phones of each other because we’re like a mom and daughter crew.”
Farrah. Farrah, no.
That first part isn’t so much the issue. Some families are more comfortable with nudity than others, and that’s OK.
But is there any reason at all, any conceivable reason, for Sophia to have naked pictures of her mother on her phone?
Is there any reason at all for Farrah to have naked pictures of her nine-year-old daughter on her phone?
No. Nope. Nope nope nope.
This is just a truly bizarre, upsetting … just bad thing for Farrah to admit.
And Twitter agrees.
“Ummm I don’t know just a wild guess but….. Something tells me cps & the cops will be visiting her soon because of this interview,” one person predicted. “This is just very sad!”
“Another level of crazy I tell you,” another person wrote. “Nothing wrong with being naked in front of your child if that’s what you want, but to have naked photos of each other on their phones is a little disgusting and by a little I mean a lot.”
A whole, whole lot.
Yet another outraged tweeter wrote that this is “beyond the pale,” and that “it’s too late for that kid, she’s seen and heard too much. So so sad. 3 generations of SCREWED up women.”
It is sad, but perhaps the saddest thing is that no one is shocked about this at all.
… Actually, on second thought, no — the nude mother-daughter photo shoots are definitely sadder.
Get it together, Farrah. Or at least try.
