Since 2004, Hollywood's most sassy website has been delivering the juiciest celebrity gossip. The blog is The go-to source for daily happenings in Hollywood. Written by the internet's most notorious gossip columnist, Perez Hilton (Mario Lavandeira). She dishes up the juiciest celebrity gossip on all your favorite stars.
A post shared by Sarah Hyland (@sarahhyland) on Jul 16, 2019 at 4:03pm PDT
After Us Weekly reported the two were dating in October 2017, the pair confirmed their relationship that Halloween.
Congrats you two!
Last month, Hyland revealed she was hospitalized for four days due to a mystery illness.
In regards to her hospital stay, she explained on IG Story:
“Long story short, I went in because I was feeling like I was being choked from whatever’s in the house.”
Sarah added she could not breathe, and experienced “chest pains.”
“And then I was like, maybe it’s just a coincidence, maybe there’s something actually medically wrong with me. So I went to the ER after a very long day of work with lots of makeup on, and I just got home, from Friday night.”
However, according to Hyland, medical professionals had “no scientific explanation” for her breathing issues, exclaiming:
“They ran multiple tests, multiple times, and there’s nothing physically wrong with me. So. Wonder why I was there…”
In December 2018, in a video for Self, the starlet opened up about contemplating suicide over her kidney struggles — having had two transplants.
The next month, while appearing on Ellen DeGeneres‘ daytime talk show, Hyland revealed she would “write letters in [her] head to loved ones” while having thoughts about ending her life.
“I would write letters in my head to loved ones — of why I did it, my reasoning behind it, how it’s nobody’s fault. And I didn’t want to write it down on paper because I didn’t want anyone to find it… I didn’t want anyone to know I was that close because if I knew, they would try to persuade me.”
“At the time, I was 26, and after 26, 27 years of always being sick and being in chronic pain every single day and you don’t know when you’re going to have the next good day, it’s really, really hard.”
In addition to her kidney dysplasia, Sarah also experienced endometriosis and an abdominal hernia — both of which made her undergo surgeries. She also suffered from gout, a severely painful form of arthritis which happens when too much uric acid crystallizes and deposits in the joints.
However, Hyland credited “saying [her issues] out loud” with helping her cope with her various ailments.
“I’d been saying, ‘I think I need to go see a therapist again,’ And they were like, ‘Why do you need to go see a therapist, you can just talk to me?’ And when I said it out loud they were like, ‘Oh you need to go see a therapist!’ And that’s when I was like, ‘Okay, I don’t think you’re going to help me. I think I need to really do this on my own and really do even more digging and soul searching.’… Just saying it out loud helped immensely because I kept it to myself for months and months at a time. And saying it out loud really helped me. Every person with their anxiety, or depression, or suicidal thoughts, every individual is different. So I wouldn’t rely on everything I say, I’m just sharing my story. But I think talking to someone and saying it out loud really, really makes it sound almost ridiculous and puts everything in perspective.’”
Disney may have found their Prince Eric to Halle Bailey‘s Ariel!
According to a new rumor swimming its way around Hollywood, Harry Styles is in talks to join The Little Mermaid live action remake!
The One Direction star would join Bailey, and — if the other casting rumors are to be believed — Melissa McCarthy as Ursula, Jacob Tremblay as Flounder, and Awkwafina as scatter-brained seagull Scuttle (a gender swap we can only imagine is angering the same people who hate there being a black Ariel).
Honestly we expected Styles to get his movie career going a little faster after doing a fine job in 2017’s emotional war story Dunkirk. We guess he’s just been too busy touring to make it to auditions…
Innerestingly, if Harry does get the gig, the casting decision will seemingly communicate one major change in the role.
The casting of Halle Bailey, one half of the angelic-voiced duo Chloe x Halle, was already a clear signal music will be front and center — not to mention the movie is being directed by Rob Marshall, helmer of Chicago and Into The Woods.

But the fact they’re even considering Styles, who is known primarily for his career as an international pop star, means we’ll almost certainly get some brand new songs as well!
See, Prince Eric is one of the few leads in Disney musicals that actually performs ZERO songs in the original.
If you didn’t ever notice that fact, we apologize for blowing your mind just now. But no, there is no “That’s Not What A Fork Is For” banger in the Disney canon.
But this almost assuredly means there will be one now.
While 2015’s Cinderella gave up on the music, the Mouse has been embracing its original catalog the past couple years. And the addition of one or two new tracks have become a big selling point for Disney’s live action remakes of late.
Dan Stevens performed Evermore in 2017’s Beauty and the Beast, this year Naomi Scott‘s Jasmine sang Speechless in Aladdin, and of course Beyoncé gifted the world with Nala’s new track Spirit in The Lion King.

So exciting to think what new song Eric might sing. Ooh, maybe a duet?? There are just so many directions they could go! LOLz!
What do YOU think of this potential casting news??
Jordyn Woods does NOT have FOMO about her former BFF’s trip to Turks and Caicos — even if it does mark the end for them!
As we reported, Kylie Jenner traveled to the islands to promote the second drop of her Kylie Skin line this week.
On board with the Life With Kylie star? Sofia Richie, makeup artist Ariel Tejada, assistant Victoria Villarroel, daughter Stormi Webster, friend Anastasia “Stassie” Karanikolaou, as well as a few others.
Not there? The friend who “ruined” her big sister’s marriage.
According to a Page Six source on Tuesday, the 21-year-old model is not upset she’s not on vacation with the makeup mogul, even though it likely cements the end of their long friendship.
The insider revealed:
“This vacation makes it kind of clear that [Kylie and Jordyn] are moving on and doing what they have to do to move on with their lives… It is what it is. The writing’s on the wall.”
Though Woods would like to reconcile with Jenner, she understands if it does not happen.
However, the source says Woods is focusing on herself and her business ventures instead:
“Jordyn would love to be back on the same page with Kylie and love to have their friendship back, but she kind of has the attitude, ‘I’m a grown woman’… She’s just worried about what she has to get done. If Kylie wants to get back, great. If not, OK.'”
Earlier this year, Jordyn was accused of (but has denied) having an affair with Khloé Kardashian‘s now-ex-boyfriend/baby daddy Tristan Thompson.
Because of the cheating scandal, Kylie has distanced herself from Woods out of loyalty to her family; since then she has become closer with other pals.
“As sad as the Jordyn situation has been for Kylie, she has also been forced to make new friendships… Some of the girls on her trip, used to be more like acquaintances, but they are now great friends.”
As we wrote, Jenner recently went on Instagram to remind her followers she is a “human” who struggles with anxiety, penning:
“I’m proud of myself, my heart, and my strength. growing up in the light with a million eyes on you just isn’t normal. I’ve lost friends along the way and I’ve lost myself too sometimes. my first tattoo was ‘sanity’ to remind myself everyday to keep it. I’ve struggled with anxiety my whole young adult life and after my baby i dealt with all the internal ups and downs. I felt like i had to find myself completely again. I keep a whole lot to myself but just wanted to share and let you know I’m human. my life is not perfect and what you see here on social media is just the surface. be gentle with yourself, move on, and let go. we are all capable of great things, worthy of love, and allowed to express ourselves. do more of what makes you happy and be unapologetic. now is your season… we all have a magnificent destiny.'”
Do YOU think this vacay unvitation officially means the friendship is over??
R. Kelly is telling you he is not guilty of the 13 federal charges — including child pornography and obstruction of justice — he’s been slapped with.
The disgraced R&B star was denied bond after a court hearing in Chicago on Tuesday, for which he showed up to shackled at the ankles and wearing an orange jumpsuit, according to TMZ.
As we reported, the Grammy winner was arrested on two new federal indictments last week; one in Illinois and the other in New York. Prosecutors argued against Kelly’s release at Tuesday’s hearing, saying he’s a danger to the community who could “entice girls to his own doorstep” if given the opportunity.
Prosecutors also claimed the threat of Kelly obstructing justice is still ongoing, alleging that he’s made large hush-money payments to silence the alleged victims and members of their families. They said Kelly has a “unique ability to influence and intimidate witnesses and victims, and that continues to this day.”
Um… because all his previous victims have grown up? That’s not how predators work…
Greenberg also denied there’s any evidence of witness tampering.
However, Judge Harry D. Leinenweber sided with prosecutors, saying the child porn charge alone comes with “a presumption of detention.” Kelly was ordered to be held in jail without bond, where he’ll remain as he awaits a trial in Chicago.
Two people who were very disappointed in the judge’s ruling were Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary, Kelly’s ever-supportive girlfriends and alleged sex slaves.
The women took off after the hearing and skipped the press conference, but will be speaking out to the media following the court’s decision with their attorney, Gloria Schmidt.

Kelly, meanwhile, will be taken by U.S. marshals to face the New York indictment in Brooklyn. The crooner is also facing a series of sex-related charges in his hometown of Chicago — to which he also pled not guilty — but this is the first time Kelly was charged with federal crimes.
What do U think about the latest development, Perezcious readers? Is it finally curtains for Kelly?
While she’s leaving us guessing when it comes to which two out of the five ballers she dated, we have our money on Blake Griffin and Ben Simmons!
The tweet came a few short days after Simmons’ sister, Liv Alice Simmons, seemingly shaded the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and her famous fam in a series of tweets, writing:
“YOU CAN BUY AN ASS BUT YOU CANT BUY CLASS.”
“I just wouldn’t ever wanna be known for dating athletes. Like imagine working your way through a league. Not a team a LEAGUE!”
“Oh f**k you guys I live under a tree #shadylife”
“I’d rather be crazy than be a hoe #facts”
Damn, tell us how you really feel!!
Kenny tends to keep things on the DL compared to the rest of her famous fam, but did previously confirm in February to Ellen DeGeneres that she had been dating the Philadelphia 76ers player “for a bit now.”
But things reportedly ended between the pair a few months later. As we previously reported, a People source spilled that the on-again-off-again pair had called it quits in May:
“They’re on a break. The relationship ran its course. She’s spending time with her friends and back to being in fun mode.”
The insider did specify they were on a break, but it seems something went awry more recently to prompt Liv’s shady tweets about the Proactiv ambassador.
Hmm. What could Kendall have done..?
We’re in the dark — and that’s just how Kendall likes it!
In a May interview with Vogue Australia, the reality star explained why she keeps her personal life slightly more “sacred” compared to her sisters:
“I got a glimpse of how my sisters dealt with [the attention] and it’s cool to learn from that. For me, a lot of things are very special and very sacred, like my friends and relationships, and I personally think that bringing things into the public makes everything so much messier.”
Miz Jenner continued:
“Also I’m very young and right now I feel like relationships aren’t always super-certain and I don’t want to bring too much attention to something if you don’t really know long term [what it’s going to be]. A relationship is only meant to be between two people, and the second you make it the world’s business is when it starts messing with the two people mentally. Like once everyone is let in, you’re letting all these opinions into your relationships, and I don’t think that’s fair.”
People are going to talk about it either way, Kendall! That’s the name of the game!

My Mom Is Unwell - Again!! *This Really Sucks* | Perez Hilton - YouTube
Momma Perez can’t catch a break this year! THANKFULLY she’s cancer free and her bladder issue was resolved with surgery. But she’s had this nagging cold she can’t shake off. And now… she has this really bad blister! That may not be a big deal for you or us, but Momma P is diabetic and it already turned into something bad. We never realized how something so simple could be so serious! Hoping it doesn’t get worse!
She’s still eating, though! And Mia is here to cheer us up too! Watch!
Per the papers, the 2012 Miss America winner — who said she is about 10 weeks pregnant with the couple’s second child — claimed her reality TV honcho ex demanded she get an abortion.
The docs read:
“While we were at our house in Kauai, Mike demanded that I get an abortion. Our [4-year-old] son Ben was in the house, seated in another room nearby. Mike told me, ‘If you have an abortion, then we can just go back to the way we were.'”
However, Laura alleges the argument over the topic of her pregnancy escalated over several days — until the producer violently attacked her!
“While Mike has frequently been verbally abusive towards me during our marriage, in recent weeks, he has become enraged, due to the fact I am pregnant with our second child. Mike told me many times that he did not want us to have a second child. He also repeatedly told me throughout our marriage, and prior to our marriage, that he knew he would ‘have to have’ one child with me because I was 26-years-old when we got married, did not yet have any children, and he knew I wanted to have a family. Mike, however, being 55 years old, did not want to have more than one child together.'”
The 31-year-old said her ex “continued to threaten me, demanding to see bank statements showing I paid for an abortion and the flight information to and from Oahu for the medical procedure.”
The next day, on July 5th:
“I tried to go into another room to call my mother. Mike refused to let me go and made threats that I would lose access to my family and my family’s ability to see Ben. Mike said, ‘You aren’t going to see your mother for the next two-to-three years. You need to call [your mom] right now and tell her this.’ I was terrified. Then he forced me to call my mother from my cell phone while he was standing and watching me in the room. When I called my mother, Mike then grabbed the phone and began angrily lecturing my mother. He told her I was getting an abortion. Then he said to her, ‘You won’t be seeing [Laura] until after August 5 — after the abortion.’ This statement was especially scary to me, as I had not personally committed to having an abortion but had made an appointment given Mike’s insistence and pressure. I had no idea what exactly he meant by it and interpreted it as a threat that he would prevent my family from having contact with me or my son.'”
On July 6th, when Laura was reportedly in bed with their sick son, Mike allegedly returned home looking for her cell phone.
Laura said when she “got up to leave the room and picked up my cell phone, Mike, who is 6’4″ and weighs approximately 220 pounds, forcibly grabbed my phone out of my hands.”
She said she “immediately became concerned and frightened” Mike would take the phone and leave her without “any way to contact law enforcement if Mike became violent, as his threats indicated he might.” She continued:
“I attempted to grab my phone back from Mike, but I was not able to do so.”
She said Mike left the room with her phone and she followed behind him, trying to get it back. When the pair were reportedly at the top of their stairs, Mike allegedly “yelled that he was going to ‘shove me down the stairs.'”
Laura claimed she followed him out of the house, “begging” to get her phone back. Before they got outside, Mike allegedly “grabbed my body, forcibly pinned me up against the wall and held me there. After I broke free, he continued to use his arms and hands to aggressively push me away from him as he walked outside the door, still not returning my phone. Then he walked towards his pick-up truck parked outside in our driveway, shouting ‘I’m going to punch your face in.'”

Allegedly, when Mike got to his truck, he opened the driver-side door and got in. Laura said she was “right behind him, pleading with him not to leave me and Ben at the house without access to my phone.”
The car door was still open and she was standing “outside the running board/footstep directly below the driver-side door, which is approximately 12-18 inches off the ground.”
Then she claimed:
“While I was standing on there (between Mike and the open door), Mike put the truck in reverse and began to back up, and firmly said, ‘You’re f**ked.’ He then stopped the car suddenly, which nearly made me fall off the running board and caused the swinging door to almost close on me. At this point, Mike forcefully shoved me off of the running board, closed the car door and drove away with my cell phone in his possession.'”
Laura said she was “extremely traumatized from the incident and started crying hysterically. Our unborn child and I could have been severely injured if I had fallen off the truck’s running board or run over the wheels of the truck. I began to scream for help.”
She then reportedly went to a house of a friend, who drove her to a police station where she filed a police report. Laura said the officer asked her if she wanted to file for an emergency protective order but she “declined as I was fearful that I would further incite Mike and instead told the office I was going to seek safety with my parents in a nearby hotel. I am currently in the process of trying to obtain a copy of this officer’s report.”
Laura said her injuries included “bruises on the inside of my arm, a scratch on my neck, and a large tear in the dress that I was wearing on July 6th, all of which were caused by Mike’s violent behavior on July 6th.”
She is asking the court to keep Mike 100 yards away from the family home, claiming:
“I have been hiding in a hotel for the past several days with Ben, and want to be able to return home without fear for myself, my son and my unborn child.”
Laura is also asking the court to “immediately issue a Temporary Domestic Violence Restraining Order so as to prevent Mike from engaging in further physical, verbal and emotional abuse,” adding:
“I am requesting both personal conduct orders and stay away orders to ensure some level of protection against Mike’s conduct and for me and Ben to have exclusive possession of our home.”
Lawyers Samantha Spector and Lisa Meyer presented photos of the alleged attack, which was caught on security cameras.
According to Laura, Fleiss has allegedly said and done terrible things to her in the past:
“Prior to July 4th, Mike threatened me that if I did not have an abortion, he would end the marriage. This was not the first time he had threatened a divorce during our marriage, but now, he was using this threat as leverage to force me to have an abortion.”
He also allegedly said to her:
“I am cutting you off financially Monday morning.”
“You are paying for everything with your money.”
“Next time I see you, I don’t want to see your stomach.”
“You have a choice, you can choose. Have an abortion or go back to Wisconsin, but you are not taking Ben.”
“Over the past several years of our marriage, Mike has made many emotionally derogatory and demeaning comments designed to demonstrate his financial coercive control over me such as repeatedly insinuating that he would destroy me with his wealth and power. Within that last year, he has verbally abused me many times telling me that I am going to end up ‘fat and single in Kenosha, Wisconsin,’ with the usual follow-up comment of ‘Good luck with that.’ He consistently would call me ‘fat,’ telling me that I need to lose weight, and berate me as being ‘lazy’ and ‘incapable.’ He has made these comments in the presence of our son Ben. The name-calling occurred on a regular basis both inside and outside our home, often in front of other people, such as our friends, my mother, and, most importantly, Ben. The continued verbal and emotional abuse have wreaked havoc on my self-esteem. I have spent time in therapy discussing the effects upon me of Mike’s demanding and denigrating comments.'”
Additionally, she is asking for custody and protection of their son, and their family dog, Nina.
She also wants possession of their home in Hanalei, Hawaii, and for the judge to force Mike to enroll in a “batterer intervention program.”
However, on Tuesday, Mike completely denied Laura’s allegations, and said SHE was the one who attacked him!
Per court documents obtained by The Blast, Mike claimed he and Laura agreed not to have a second child, as he reportedly believed she was on birth control.
He said he “did not want to have another child as Laura had issues with emotional stability and had a difficult time caring for Ben when he was a baby.”
On Father’s Day, Laura told him she was pregnant. When he questioned her about being on birth control, he said she told him it was not always effective.
On July 3, Mike said he found out Laura allegedly lied and was never on birth control. He said he “learned that she lied to me in order to get pregnant so she could have another baby even though we agreed not to.”
Because of the alleged lie, Mike asked to see her phone, to see if she was being deceitful about other things. He said:
“I was concerned about whether there were other things she was hiding from like a relationship with another man. I wanted to be sure she was not having an affair and that the baby she was carrying was mine.”
On July 6 (the day Laura claimed Mike attacked her), he again asked to see her phone, but she refused.
After taking the phone from her, Mike said Laura “immediately attacked me so I ran out of the bedroom, down the stairs, and outside to my car.”
As he left the residence, Mike claims Laura was “pounding on me with her fists, jumping on my back, and trying to get the phone back.”
Though he admitted he eventually left and drove away, he denied ever shoving her away as he drove off, claiming he backed away slowly and eventually “she jumped back out of the truck.”
Laura used security footage as evidence of his alleged assault, but Mike claims the video backs him up.
Is he trying to give her a Bachelor villain edit? Hmm…
He also said he spoke to his estranged wife after the alleged incident, and did not learn she filed a police report against him until three days later.
Reportedly, Mike has not heard from Laura since July 9, and he has “no idea where she or Ben are.”
“Due to Laura’s historical emotional instability… I am concerned about her and our son while in her care. I want to make sure they are safe.”
According to TMZ last week, Mike filed for divorce from Laura, citing irreconcilable differences.
Per their reported prenup, he will pay her both child and spousal support, though he asked for joint legal and physical custody of their son.
The couple tied the knot in 2014 at his home in Malibu in a ceremony officiated by Bachelor host Chris Harrison.
A hearing regarding Laura’s temporary restraining order against Mike is scheduled for next month.
The 40-year-old got a laugh out of the moment being caught on camera, writing in response (below):
“OMG Here I am completely freaking out to @Sethrogen about how I’m going to greet Prince Harry and Meghan I’M CRYING ”
Stars, they’re just like us! (We are also crying LOLz!)
Billy also tweeted out that the interaction went great, noting that he bonded with the former Suits star over being Northwestern University alumni:
“BTW they were both super down to earth and lovely and Meghan and I talked about our @NorthwesternU acting teachers (shout out to Mary Poole and David Downs!) ”
While chatting with the hosts of UK’s This Morning on Tuesday, the comedians further explained their brush with royalty.
Rogen joked about being unclear on the exact protocol for meeting the couple:
“Yes, exactly, respect their personal space. They’re the only people I’ve met who come with protocol so that was interesting. And then I think what we were trying to gauge is how many people were following the protocol and how strict the protocol is.”
Eichner chimed in, noting he had no clue the hilarious moment (above) was being filmed:
“I didn’t know we were being recorded at the time so this was a very real moment of Seth and I waiting to meet Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. And like Seth said, they tell you you’re supposed to say your Royal Highness, you can’t speak until your hands are locked together in a handshake and all these crazy things, and I didn’t know how much you were supposed to follow that so I started panicking. We were watching what our friend Keegan [Keegan-Michael Key] did and he did none of the protocol either and just kind of nodded his head, then it all fell apart.”
