Looking good! Hilary Duff shows off the results of her dedicated gym regime as she bares her legs in Daisy Dukes

She took a sensible approach to losing her baby weight, shunning crash diets in favour of a longterm healthy eating plan with plenty of exercise.

And Hilary Duff is now reaping the benefits of her dedication to getting her pre-baby body back.

The 25-year-old bared her legs in Daisy Dukes as she took her son Luca to a playdate in Los Angeles on Thursday.

Looking her very best, the trim and toned actress teamed her shorts with a black shirt and a yellow handbag.

To make the most of her legs Hilary wore a pair of heeled trainers in a vibrant tomato red.

Little Luca was also wearing the same shade, in a fetching pair of trousers.

The Cheaper By The Dozen star explained this week that she didn't deny herself food while trying to lose weight.

'I've never had that much weight to lose before. I was like, "It's not coming off." I love to exercise but I'm the worst dieter in the world.

'Now I'm finally getting to a place where my old clothes are fitting. It's taken a year and it was harder than I thought it was going to be. But I feel really good.'

The star says she and husband Mike Comrie are kept busy running around after their toddler.

She said: 'Motherhood has been a huge life adjustment. It's been the most wonderful time of my life - but also the most tiring.

'He went straight to running from crawling instead of walking so I'm on my feet all day long training him.

'Right now I'm making some new music and reading scripts but it's tough to commit. Now that I'm a mom, whatever I work on has to be worth it.'

It seems nothing can keep Selena Gomez down.

Just a week ago the Disney star was forced to pull out of all her public appearances after being laid low by a 'horrible' illness.

But after a few days rest she looked back on top form as she put on a dazzling show in Toronto on Thursday.

A pair of high heels, edgy black nail varnish and some braces hanging at her sides completed the fashionable look.

She smiled and laughed as she met fans, chatted to interviewers at MuchMusic Headquarters and performed some of her new tracks.

It was an emotional occasion.


The Healing for the Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert held in Okalahoma on Wednesday night saw country wonder-couple Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton perform to raise funds to help the Oklahoma tornado victims.


Lambert, who looked lovely in black lace, even broke down during her beautiful song, House That Built Me, which she dedicated to tornado displaced animals in shelters.

Oklahoma native Shelton kicked off the evening with a heartfelt performance of God Gave Me You.


He then launched the appeal to help those affected by the disaster.


Vince Gill, also from Oklahoma, began his set by announcing: 'It's sure good to be home. I'd like to do this song for 24 people that didn't make it,' and launched into Threaten Me With Heaven.


Then Voice co-judges Shelton and Usher, teamed up on Michael Buble's Home, Reba Mcentire also performed, as did Luke Bryan, Darius Rucker and Rascal Flatts.

Country legend Garth Brooks, NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson and NBC late night hosts Jimmy Fallon and Jay Leno also gave her support.


It was undoubtedly the poignancy of the night's purpose that saw Miranda lose her composure, but the singer has had to deal with persistent rumours that Shelton has cheated on her.


So persistent, in fact, that the 36-year-old Voice judge has been forced to come our and deny them.


Shelton insists he has 'nothing to hide' from the country singer.

He said 'there are no secrets' in his relationship and that he allows his wife to go through his 'phone, computer and drawers' in the latest issue of People.

Recent reports claimed that Blake had a month-long affair with pop country star Cady Grove after the pair flirted over Twitter.


But The Voice judge said he keeps nothing from his wife, and that their number one rule is total honesty.

'[I tell Miranda]..."Here's my phone. Go through it,"' said The Voice judge. 'That's really the kind of trust we have. There are no secrets. [I'll say,] "Go dig through my drawers or my computer if you feel like you need to." And that's been a really good thing, because I don't want her to ever have any doubts.'


Blake also admitted that he would be jealous if he saw another man chatting up his blonde wife.


'I guarantee you, if I saw some guy flirting with my wife, it would p--- me off,' said Blake, who is wrapping season four of The Voice and getting ready for his Based On A True Story summer tour.


'Of course, I haven't seen a man brave enough to do that - mostly because I think they'd be afraid of her reaction.'

The couple, who have been married two years, try not to allow a couple of weeks to go by without seeing each other, but Blake said it isn't always easy to manage.

Miranda, who has said before that 'divorce is not an option', has been flying out to Los Angeles to visit Blake while he shoots The Voice.


'She's been a lot better about finding me if I'm stuck in L.A. She'll always fly instead of going home, even if it's just a day or two,' he said.


'I can't express how important that's been to our relationship and why we're doing so good, because I'm the kind of guy who doesn't want to drive down a hill to go grocery shopping, much less fly across the country.'

But Blake has made romantic gestures of his own, including surprising her days before their May 14 anniversary at one of her shows.

But not all his surprises go over too well. When he moved to L.A. he found a mansion, thinking small-town girl Miranda would be swept off her feet by the grandness of it. She wasn't.


'[I found[ this big-ass nice house with a pool,' he said. 'And the first time she ever came, she was like, "This is dumb. Why did you get a house this big?" And I was like, "I thought you'd like it!"'

Long distance: Blake said Miranda has been visiting him regularly in LA where he films The VoiceLong distance: Blake said Miranda has been visiting him regularly in LA where he films The Voice


The singer also admitted that the couple want to start trying for a baby soon.


'I'm thinking about a family,' he said. His marriage has prepared him to take the next step, he said.


'Learning to not be selfish is what has changed in me the most since being married. I'm thinking on behalf of someone [else] now. Just like I hope she is doing with me.'

I'm a great-grandad! Ryan O'Neal, 72, proudly shares pictures of baby Sidney

A year ago, he was proving that babies weren't in his cards.

Now, Ryan O'Neal is a great-grandfather, and proud of it.

'Happy Memorial Day to all. I had a great day with friends and family, including new edition, baby Sidney O'Neal,' the Love Story star, 72, posted to Twitter and Facebook on Monday.

'Had a wonderful day with my new great-grandson Sidney. Happy #MemorialDay to all!' he added.

Along with the written words were pictures of him and the grandson of O'Neal's son Griffin O'Neal, 48.

In the snapshots, the little one looks ultra cool in a straw hat and sunglasses that are clearly too big for his face, yet make him look even more adorable.

He's also sporting a pair of navy blue trousers with paw prints all over them and matching little sneakers.
Awww! The little one, Sidney, was wearing a straw hat and sunglasses that looked like they were too big for his face Awww! The little one, Sidney, was wearing a straw hat and sunglasses that looked like they were too big for his face

Ryan has four children from three different relationships - Tatum, 48, Griffin, 47, Patrick, 43, and 27-year-old Redmond.

He also has eight grandchildren - three from Tatum’s marriage to tennis player John McEnroe, three from each of Griffin’s marriages, and two from Patrick’s marriage to actress Rebecca De Mornay.

It is not known who Sidney's parents are.
Acting career: Ryan is known for his role in Love Story and is currently working on the film Knight Of CupsActing career: Ryan is known for his role in Love Story and is currently working on the film Knight Of Cups
Last May, Ryan took a paternity test in order to prove he is not the father of a fan's baby.

Jessica Zellars gave birth to a baby boy in February 2012 and claimed the baby was a result of a 'brief romantic relationship' with O'Neal after the two met in Malibu, where the actor lives.

A source close to the situation said that O'Neal agreed to the test only to 'put this behind him.'

There's some holes in your outfit dear Eliza! Miss Doolittle flashes a lot of skin in daring cut-out catsuit at Esquire Summer Party

She is currently gearing up for a comeback with her second studio album, after not releasing any solo material for almost three years.

So it’s no surprise Eliza Doolittle wanted to turn heads when she made her return to the limelight at the Esquire Summer Party on Wednesday evening.

The 25-year-old shunned all things summery and instead opted for a satin-like black catsuit which featured gaping cut-out sections down both the arms and sides - no doubt leaving her torso a little on the chilly side.

Eye-catching: Eliza Doolittle made sure she stood out at the Esquire and Stella Artois party at Somerset House on Wednesday eveningEye-catching: Eliza Doolittle made sure she stood out at the Esquire and Stella Artois party at Somerset House on Wednesday evening


The Pack Up singer however seemed delighted with the long sleeved item, that looked a little like a child had taken to it with scissors, as she posed side on to make the most of it at Somerset House.

Her famously long dark curly hair fell around her shoulders and she accentuated her dark eyes with black eyeliner.

Eliza’s interesting and eye-catching look was completed with a pair of neon green wedge heels which poked out underneath.


Gaping: From the front the dress didn't seem to revealing, it was when she turned to the side that the full affect could be seen

By the end of the evening, as often happens when wearing satin like material, her outfit had creased somewhat and managed to pull across the star’s petite frame.

She was joined at the Esquire and Stella Artois bash by man of the moment musician Sam Smith who too had opted for a rather wintery ensemble including a large black overcoat.

In April of this year the Skinny Genes songstress opened up to Elle magazine about her new material.

She said: ‘I'm definitely showing more of myself than I ever have before. I feel like on my last album, I hadn't experienced very much of anything really, and it's been 3 years or more since then and I have felt and seen things I hadn't before, and I know things I didn't know before.

‘In a way I have answers to questions, but then those answers open up a thousand other questions. I guess I've gone through things that so many people go through at the age I am.

‘I've written almost every day about my every thought and emotion and the album is made up of the songs that mean the most to me.’

The U singer highlighted his frizzy hairdo with large round Jackie O sunglasses not unlike the pair he wore in the film Purple Rain in 1984.

The hitmaker was dressed like a 1970's super-villain as he shredded through a series of mind-bending riffs on his electric guitar.

Meanwhile, the famously elusive pop star appeared on The View last September.

During the interview Barbara Walters pressed the singer to give his opinion on current pop stars Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber.

In response the music icon simply shrugged, saying: 'Different strokes for different folks.'

And Wesley, who looks dapper in a tuxedo, proves to be a true gentleman as he holds open the door for potential bride Eva, a 'finger painter', lovingly grabs the hands of Gabrielle, a 'unicorn enthusiast', and gives Stella the 'handful' a kiss on the cheek when she can't hold back her tears.

Wesley stands in front of a door to the mansion, awaiting his potential brides. 'I hope I find my bride,' he says enthusiastically.


In the clip, Mr Kimmel sits down with the young bachelor to learn more about his intentions on the show. 'Wesley, are you ready to meet the woman of your dreams?' he asks. 'Yeah,' says Wesley.

'What kind of dreams do you have?' Jimmy then asks, to which Wesley responds: 'Um, a firetruck, and a turned around bed.'


'Very good,' says Mr Kimmel. 'Now go out there and find your wife!'


The first girl to arrive in the limousine is Gabrielle, a two-year-old 'unicorn enthusiast'. 'I'm Gabrielle and I'm looking for the one,' says the adorable toddler.


Wesley greets her at the door and lovingly grabs her hands. 'It was love at first sight!' she explains as she fidgets nervously in the interview chair.


Next to arrive is Eva, a 'finger painter' who says to the camera: 'I hope Wesley doesn't break my heart.'

'Some of the girls were more vulnerable than others,' Mr Kimmel says in the background, as Stella, a 'handful', walks out of the limousine and bursts into tears.


When she reaches the doorway, Wesley gives her a kiss on the cheek to make her feel better. 'It's OK, just take my hand!' he says to her.

Wesley can't hide his delight when Ashley, the lone adult among the girls, struts out of the limousine in her high heels and tight mini dress.

Wesley and Ashley make an adorable pair as the 26-year-old blonde towers several feet above him and introduces herself.


'I'd like to get the big girl,' Wesley admits to the camera.

The clip shows the toddlers interacting in the Bachelor house. Some of them hop on a trampoline together, one girl digs into a jar of candy, and several of the girls have a tea party by the pool.

And just like The Bachelor, the toddler version of the reality series has its fair share of drama.

At one point, Franki, one of the youngest girls, begins to show off and annoy the other girls when she wears a bikini to their tea party and busts out her hip-hop dance moves
Baby BachelorAge-appropriate: In a spin-off of The Bachelor's rose ceremony, Welsey is seen offering a toy dinosaur to his potential brides

'Franki's showing off,' says one girl, adding: 'What is she wearing!'


A trailer for the next episode of The Baby Bachelor shows the drama escalating as one girl pushes over her chair and says, 'You didn't share!'

And in a parody of the famous rose ceremony in the reality show, which sees the bachelor giving a flower to each of his potential brides, Wesley is shown presenting his girls with a toy.

'Will you please accept this dinosaur?' he asks, brandishing the toy in the air.

Not rocking! Alessandra Ambrosio makes a rare fashion misstep in lace and a leather mini skirt at Rolling Stone party

As one of the world's most beautiful women, many people would have assumed Alessandra Ambrosio could make a potato sack look good - seems that is not the case.

On Monday night the Victoria's Secret Angel failed to shine at the Rolling Stone hosts Bacardi Rebels at Roseland Ballroom in New York.

Normally the definition of perfection, the star made a bevvy of fashion and styling mistakes.

The 32-year-old wore a poorly coordinated ensemble of a less than flattering leather and material ice skater skirt with embroidery and a black sheer high necked top with nude lace inserts.

While the glamorous model's stunning legs could be seen, her usually traffic stopping beauty was obscured as with her hair pulled back into a slick bun Alessandra looked stern and gaunt.

But despite the odd look, Alessandra was pleased with her look.

'Loving my look for tonight!!! Thank u so much my #beautysquad,' she tweeted.

However, the star did not have long to party at the event jetting off - literally - after being there just for a few hours.

Two hours after tweeting she was at the event, the model was out of her party clothes on a flight to Europe.

'Done for the night !!! Off to #europe #nightnightworld,' the 32-year-old tweeted along with a picture of her first class airplane seat.

Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne 'on good terms' as they 'enjoy a cosy lunch' in Beverly Hills... and later share a kiss on the red carpet beside daughter Kelly

Their relationship has been on the rocks since Ozzy Osbourne admitted to relapsing on his years' long vow of sobriety.


And after taking a break for the past few months, it looks like things are on the mend for Sharon Osbourne and her rocker husband.


According to TMZ, the heavy metal couple were spotted dining out at the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Saturday and appeared to be on good terms.

The 64-year-old arrived ahead of time alongside another man and Sharon joined in a short while later.


The trio were seen chatting at a booth, but according to sources they kept the conversation on business terms and 'did not look romantic.'


But by the end of the meal the two were on much happier terms and were seen 'cosying up together in the booth.'

While lunch may have been on the business end of things, the pair appear to be spending more time together, as they joined their daughter Kelly Osbourne later in the evening at the nearby Beverly Hilton Hotel.


The family kept close as they reunited on the red carpet at the An Evening With Women event hosted by Kathy Griffin, laughing and hugging as they made their way inside.


The 60-year-old took a moment to fix her husband's hair, and he later thanked her with a close peck on the cheek.

And in another sign that things are on the mend Fashion Police host Kelly shared a silly snap of her mother on Friday hiding under a blanket on a chair in her home with the caption: 'My mum is currently hiding from her personal trainer! Can you tell? My dad & I are p------ ourselves!'


Meanwhile, it has been claimed Ozzy is set to move back to the UK to save his marriage to Sharon when the 60-year-old star returns as a judge on The X Factor UK later this year.


An insider told the Sunday People: 'Ozzy loves living in LA but he knows that if he doesn't return to England with Sharon it could be disastrous for their relationship. By supporting Sharon in the UK it means they can work through their problems and she can help him with his issues.'

The pair will be living in their mansion in Buckinghamshire, south east England and escaping to the countryside could be what their marriage needs.


The source added: 'They will be staying at their house in Buckinghamshire which is in the countryside and very peaceful, like a haven. This is something they need to do for each other. LA is where all the problems began so they feel it will be good to live in the UK together.'


The past few months have been a welcome break for the couple, who have been on the rocks since April.

Ozzy and his band Black Sabbath spent much of the time on the road as they toured Australia, but his manager Sharon stayed stateside, and even moved out of their home.


The former Black Sabbath rocker posted a public apology on his Facebook page after rumours of an Osbourne divorce did the rounds last month.


He said: 'For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. I was in a very dark place and was an a*****e to the people I love most, my family. However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober.


‘Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing. I’m just trying to be a better person. I would like to apologise to Sharon, my family, my friends and my band mates for my insane behaviour during this period… and my fans. God  Bless, Ozzy.’

Sharon then opened up on her feelings surrounding her husband's relapse on The Talk, admitting she was 'devastated' to see him go back to drink and drugs.


She explained: 'I never knew he was using prescription drugs. I knew he was drinking occasionally, but didn't realise to the extent.


'I am devastated right now. It's a disease that not only hurts the person who has the disease, but it hurts the family. It hurts people who love you.'

Did you forget something? Courtney Stodden wears just a gaudy bra top and tight white jeans to dine at family friendly restaurant

 


When she recently shocked nobody by admitting she has very own sex tape, she was sure to add that she doesn't 'want to put any images in people's mind'.


But 18-year-old Courtney Stodden left very little to the imagination when she din


 ed at family-friendly restaurant The Cheesecake Factory on Saturday wearing a bright pink tube-bra as an outer garment.

Along with her manager-mother Krista Stodden, the peroxide blonde enjoyed a post-lunch strut about The Grove in West Hollywood, where she even managed to frighten a small canine.



Am I missing something? Courtney Stodden dined at The Cheesecake Factory - a family restaurant - with her mother on Saturday, opting for an interesting pink bra as her outer garment

Courtney mistook the fluorescent strip of pink fabric for an actual top and not even her 52-year-old husband Doug Hutchison was kind enough to let her know.


The buxom blonde only just managed to keep herself within the confines of the garment, which she teamed with white skinny jeans that looked as though they had been sprayed on.


The youngster's old faithful sky-high stripper heels joined the party for the sunny outing, as well as a sneaky touch of pink atop her beehive hairdo.

The cement stronghold 'do Courtney created days ago was still firmly in place, perhaps a result of her losing control with the hairspray.


The teen constantly touched her bulbous up-do with one hand, whilst the other hand juggled her pink handbag, sunglasses and bling-adorned iPhone.


The wannabe-actress showcased her taut tummy as the orange hue on her skin glowed in the sunlight.


 

Is my hair OK? The peroxide blonde cement stronghold was still firmly in place, the same way it was days ago

Courtney struck pose after pose, perhaps hoping that her audacious look would somehow be seen by her dream employer, Hugh Hefner of Playboy.


At one point, a small dog appeared to be frightened by the teen as it shied away from her, fleeing between its owner's legs.


The teen found her fame by marrying Green Mile actor Doug Hutchison when she was just 16 and he was 51.


 


Even the pooch got a fright! A small canine shied away from Courtney and her killer heels

But Sunday was a mother-daughter affair and Doug did not join his young wife for the outing.


Krista Stodden opted for a far less revealing outfit - a simple grey cardigan over blue jeans - but appeared unfazed by her teen daughter's wardrobe selection.


Not to be upstaged by Teen Mom alum Farrah Abraham, Courtney recently revealed that she too has her very own sex tape.


 

Too much hairspray? So much, in fact, that a leaf got stuck to her gigantic up-do

She insists it was shot after she turned 18 last August and she has no intention of ever making it public and doesn't even have it stored on her computer in case hackers try to access it.


Speaking at the Shekhar Rahate fashion show in Los Angeles on Thursday, she told E! News: 'Hackers, don't even go there cause you'll find nothing. It's just me. I turned 18 in August, so you do the math.


Pressed for more details, she said: 'This is personal. I don't want to put any images in people's mind; I'm going to leave it up to you guys to think what you want.'

It's a peace of pizza as Gwyneth and Kate kiss and make-up: Actress and model bury the hatchet after legendary fall-out

After a legendary fall-out over food and fitness a year ago, Kate Moss and Gwyneth Paltrow have buried the hatchet – over a slice of pizza.

Their argument began at Sir Philip Green's 60th birthday party in Mexico last May.


According to witnesses, Kate, asked Iron Man actress Gwyneth why she was jogging on the beach.

Model: Kate Moss

Actress: Gwyneth Paltrow

Made-up: Kate Moss, left, and Gwyneth Paltrow, right, have buried the hatchet over a slice of pizza


Mother-of-two Gwyneth was reported to have fired back: 'So I don't look like you when I get old.'

An apoplectic Kate threw a handful of crisps at her, yelling: 'Eat some f*****g carbs!'

Ironically, it was carbohydrates that reunited Kate, 39, and Gwyneth, 40, last week when they crossed paths at a smart North London pizza restaurant owned by the Soho House group and famed for its hog roast pizzas and macaroni cheese.

'Gwyneth was at the Pizza East Kentish Town with husband Chris Martin, and their kids Apple and Moses, celebrating Apple's ninth birthday with some of her friends,' a fellow diner reveals.

'As Gwyneth was about to leave, Kate waltzed across from the other side of the restaurant to say hello.


They exchanged kisses and chatted for about ten minutes. Kate's husband Jamie Hince also came over and everything seemed really friendly.'

Kate Moss was also seen tucking into a snack alongside husband Jamie Hince as the couple went for a stroll in Hampstead.

They stopped by a stall which was recently visited by Hollywood A-listers Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher.

Model Kate looked like she couldn't get enough of her filled treat as she scoffed the French pancake walking through the streets.

'I've been through a lot': Demi Lovato talks about the inspiration behind her 'honest' new album as she appears on Jimmy Fallon

After a rocky stretch in her life and career, everything now appears to be going Demi Lovato's way.


The 20-year-old pop singer appeared as a guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday in New York City to promote her new album Demi, which shot to number one on iTunes in 50 countries the day after it was released.


'It feels good because it came out yesterday,' Lovato said gleefully, after mimicking her face on the album cover when Fallon displayed the record for the cameras.

Lovato also revealed she had a new tattoo, inspired by the song Warrior on the new album, a tribute to overcoming some really difficult things in her life.

That rocky stretch occurred between the end of 2010 and beginning of 2011, during which she punched a back-up singer, was diagnosed bipolar disorder and entered an inpatient treatment facility to deal with bulimia, self-injury and abuse of drugs and alcohol.


'I've been through a lot,' the singer and television personality explained on the show. 'I'm really, really honest on this album.'

As if new body art weren't enough promotion for the new record, Lovato tells Fallon she spent the day driving around New York City, shouting out of a cab that they should check out her new album and that it was really great.

Coincidentally, one of the people she drove up next to and shouted at happened to be Ben Stiller.

'It was the craziest, most random thing ever!' Lovato swore.

Demi also talked about her relationship with Simon Cowell on the X Factor.


'There's a HUGE age difference, but we get along,' Lovato said of her 53-year-old co-host. 'I don't think he likes getting old. But he loves our friendship.'


She and Cowell are the only two confirmed judges returning for the next season of the hit Fox competition series, though the singer says they are holding auditions for more hosts next week.


'I have a little idea but it's not confirmed,' Lovato teased, not revealing any more to Fallon' speculation that one of the new judges may be Lady Gaga.

She also appears to have developed a healthy sense of humor about her rocky past, primarily dealing with substance abuse.


When fellow guest Julie Bowen of the sitcom Modern Family said they should play beer pong and then took it back because Lovato was underage, the young singer was quick on the comeback.


'That doesn't matter because I've already been to rehab,' Lovato said to uproarious of laughter from both the crowd and Fallon himself.

Paris Jackson focuses on her school work with light-hearted photo as new allegations against her father Michael surface

The past few weeks have been tough for Michael Jackson's 15-year-old daughter Paris.

But the teen showed she's keeping her mind on her schoolwork as she posed for a light-hearted snap on Twitter.

It showed her dancing with a skeleton in what appeared to be a school science lab and smiling with her new close-cropped red hair.

Paris's response: Michael Jackson's 15-year-old daughter Paris Jackson posted this pic to Twitter on Thursday, in the wake of the renewed molestation allegations against her father and the ongoing wrongful death lawsuit against AEG LiveLight hearted: Michael Jackson's 15-year-old daughter Paris Jackson posted this pic to Twitter on Thursday, in the wake of the renewed molestation allegations against her father


Despite Pairs' determination to carry on as normal, the schoolgirl has plenty of turmoil at home.

First up, a wrongful death lawsuit was launched against AEG Live claiming the massive touring company was negligent in hiring and supervising Dr. Conrad Murray - who killed her father with a massive overdose of Propofol.


Then, 30-year-old choreographer Wade Robson made new claims that he was abused by Michael Jackson, even though he denied this occurred on the stand during the pop star's molestation trial in 2005.

A day of denial: Wade Robson in 2005, after testifying that Michael Jackson never molested himA day of denial: Wade Robson in 2005, after testifying that Michael Jackson never molested him

Meanwhile, earlier in the day, Robson went on the Today show to explain why he's asking for money from the Jackson estate and why he's making these new allegations at this time.


'I said what I understood and I said what I was able to say,' he explained. 'From seven years old, from day one of the abuse, Michael told me that we loved each other and this was love, this was an expression of our love.


'And then he would follow it up with "but if you ever tell anyone what we are doing both of our lives and careers would be over."'

The Jackson estate's lawyer, Howard Weitzman, has dismissed Robson's claims.



A day of admission: Robson on Thursday on the Today Show, talking about why he denied being molested and why he is making the allegations nowA day of admission: Robson on Thursday on the Today Show, talking about why he denied being molested and why he is making the allegations now


'This is a young man who has testified at least twice under oath over the past 20 years and said in numerous interviews that Michael Jackson never did anything inappropriate to him or with him,' Weitzman said in a statement to Today. 'Now, nearly four years after Michael has passed, this sad and less-than-credible claim has been made.'

In response to Robson's Today Show interview, Michael's nephew Taj Jackson took to Twitter to reveal that he had actually been molested as a child and knew the choreographer wasn't telling the truth.


'That is how I KNOW Wade is lying. Because I AM a survivor,' Taj tweeted. He followed with: 'I was sexually abuse (sic). By [a family member] on my mom's side of the family when I was a kid.'

As for Paris, her public response appeared to be much more subtle.


Michael's eldest child also appears to have made a number of other changes in her life over the past month, beyond her shorter, red hairstyle.

Paris has been spending a lot of time with her formerly estranged birth mother, 54-year-old Debbie Rowe, over the past few weeks, connecting in a way they never did while Michael was alive.


The teenager has also talked about rebuilding her father's Neverland Ranch, restoring it to the way it 'used to be' when she was brought up.

'I think it should be restored to how it used to be, so that the children who couldn’t have a childhood could have fun there. That was his goal – like kids in a hospital,' Paris told The Mail on Sunday newspaper’s Event magazine. 'They should restore all the rides and everything. As soon as I’m an adult – I’m on it. Count on it.'

Poyet suspended by Brighton after budget row with chairman as Uruguayan looks to be heading out of Amex

Gus Poyet has been suspended by Brighton after a budget bust-up with chairman Tony Bloom.

And the south-coast club are considering taking legal action against their manager under breach of contract regulations.

Poyet has been ordered to stay away from the club - and is not allowed to talk to any of his players - as officials conduct an internal investigation.

On his way out? Brighton have suspended manager Gus PoyetOn his way out? Brighton have suspended manager Gus Poyet



Assistant manager Mauricio Taricco and first-team coach Charlie Oatway have also been suspended. They were informed of this decision by email.


Poyet and Taricco were spotted in London's Smith of Smithfields restaurant looking gloomy at lunch earlier today.


A statement on the club's website confirmed: 'Brighton & Hove Albion has confirmed that it has suspended its manager, assistant manager, and its first team coach from their duties.


'The club will now follow its internal procedures with regard to this matter and will make no further comment at this time.'


The Uruguayan openly questioned the club's ambition immediately after his side's play-off exit against bitter rivals Crystal Palace on Monday night.

And his comments are said to have infuriated Bloom, who has been at odds with Poyet over the level of the playing budget throughout the season.

Poyet wants more cash to spend on strengthening his squad, but the money has not been forthcoming.

And it is understood the transfer budget is again at the centre of their latest disagreement.

Poyet held an emotional meeting with his squad on Tuesday, revealing to them he was likely to leave the Seagulls before the start of next season.

Had enough? Gus Poyet saw his side lose in the play-offsHad enough? Gus Poyet saw his side lose in the play-offs


And the former Chelsea and Tottenham midfielder now looks set for an acrimonious spilt with the club he has been at the helm for three-and-a-half years.

Poyet still has three years left on his current deal and he would be entitled to around £2million in compensation if he was sacked.

But dismissal by breach of contract could see Brighton escape the paying that sum.

Jaw-dropping 101.73-carat diamond that took 21 MONTHS to polish sells for record-breaking $26.7million at auction

A huge diamond unearthed in Botswana commanded an unearthly price of $26.7million from Christie's auction house on Wednesday, amid the spring ritual of well-heeled bidders flocking or phoning in to Geneva's luxury sales.


The pear-shaped gem, purchased by Harry Winston, accounted for more than a quarter of the $102million in sales rung up by Christie's Wednesday night, a night after Sotheby's had $78million in sales.


'A perfect diamond commands a perfect price,' Christie's trumpeted on Twitter of the record sale price for the largest D-color flawless diamond ever offered at auction - a whopping 101.73 carats that took 21 months to polish.


 

Huge diamond sells for $27million

Girl's best friend: This pear-shaped diamond, which was mined in Botswana, was purchased by Harry Winston for $26.7million on Wednesday, a record sale at Christie's auction house in Geneva, Switzerland



 

Jewelry, watches and other luxury items are sold every spring by the big auction houses at Geneva's elegant lakefront hotels - seemingly a world away from some European countries whose economies are shrinking as their governments enact often tough budget austerity measures to get a handle on their debts.


 


Sotheby's auction featured a diamond jewelry collection belonging to Italian screen actress Gina Lollobrigida that fetched $4.9million, some of which she plans to donate to stem cell research.


The auction house said eight bidders fought for Lollobrigida's pair of diamond and natural pearl earrings, which finally sold for more than $2.3million and set a new auction record for such an item.

Substantial bling: The gem (pictured at the auction house) is the largest D-color flawless diamond ever offered at auction - a whopping 101.73 carats that took 21 months to polish



The 85-year-old actress, who starred opposite Humphrey Bogart, Frank Sinatra and other top actors in the 1950s and 1960s, said she was selling the jewelry partly to fund an international hospital for stem cell treatment.


Sotheby's also sold a 74.53-carat fancy yellow diamond that once belonged to Ahmad Shah Qajar, the shah of Persia from 1909 to 1925 and the last ruler of the Qajar dynasty.


Its sale for nearly $3million set both an auction record and a record price per carat - an eye-popping $40,061 per carat - for a fancy yellow diamond.


Among other items auctioned off Tuesday night was Barcelona soccer star Lionel Messi's Audemars Piguet No. 10 Royal Oak Chronograph wristwatch, which sold for $81,850 to raise money for the four-time FIFA player of the year's foundation.


After that auction, Lollobrigida said her jewels had brought her much pleasure for many years, but she hopes that 'selling them will raise awareness of stem cell therapy, which can cure so many illnesses.'

The Black Swan star looked delightful as always, donning a pair of white skinny jeans with black boots.


A denim jacket and brown scarf completed the natural beauty's outfit, with Natalie's hair pulled back into a casual bun.


The 31-year-old looked to be make-up free, with large black sunglasses framing her famously stunning face.


The pair strolled though a colourful garden before finding a fun-looking carousel.


The mother-of-one appeared overjoyed to be watching her one-year-old son enjoy the ride, keeping one arm around the little one at all times.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in France, one of the Academy Award winner's upcoming films Knight Of Cups had a sneak preview at Cannes Film Festival.


The film, by Terrence Malick, also stars Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett and is currently in post-production.


Natalie's husband, Benjamin Millepied - French dancer-choreographer - did not join the pair for the day out.


She and the 35-year-old dancer are reportedly planning to relocate to Paris later this year.


The French choreographer, a former principal dancer with the New York City Ballet, will begin his new position as director of the Paris Opera Ballet in October 2014.

Could've fooled us! Emma Watson admits 'being sexy was never my goal' as she sizzles in sultry new photo shoot


Her character in the new film The Bling Ring is all about trashy outfits and wild behaviour.


But Emma Watson is the complete opposite of her on-screen alter ego in a new W Magazine spread.


The 23-year-old channels a sultry screen siren of yesteryear on the cover of the June/July issue of the fashion magazine, in which she admits 'being sexy never really held any excitement' for her.

The Harry Potter star wears her shoulder length hair in glamorous ringlets, and adds a pop of colour with crimson red lipstick in the film noir photo shoot.


On the cover, she is seen wearing lacy beige fishnet stockings and a menswear jacket, her head suggestively cocked to one side.


In another black-and-white shot, she oozes sex appeal as she reclines on a chaise lounge wearing a tight-fitting black dress and netted gloves as she gazes seductively into the distance.

The former child star admitted in the interview that she 'never wanted to grow up too fast,' and made sure her first kiss occurred off a film set.


'I wanted to wear a sportsbra until I was 22!' she said. 'The allure of being sexy never really held any excitement for me.'


'I’ve never been in a terrible rush to be seen as a woman,' added the actress, who was allegedly 'meticulous' about her hair and makeup and 'aware of every frame' during the shoot.


'It was not diva behavior; she was lovely and polite yet exacting,' said W Editor At Large Lynn Hirschberg. 'Perhaps this is how you gracefully transition from child to adult in the global eye: Be bold but never, ever sloppy.'

Emma will appear in the new film The Bling Ring, the true story about a group of money-hungry teens who broke into the homes of various stars, including Lindsey Lohan and Paris Hilton.


The actress plays ringleader Nicki, who is seen doing everything from casually holding a shotgun in her hand to dancing seductively in a smoky club.


Emma said playing the role forced her to go outside of her comfort zone: 'Nicki is so different from me. How do I try and understand a young woman who loves these things so much that she is prepared to commit crimes to have them?


'With Nicki, I was really taking on a character. Some of her lines are so crazy and absurd—making sure she wasn’t a parody was a challenge,' she added.

Emma also had a hard time understanding Nicki's choice of outfits.


'Who wouldn’t love to go to work in Uggs and very low-slung tracksuit bottoms?' said the star. She then joked about Nicki's 'tramp stamp'.


'It's a lotus flower, a Buddhist-like symbol just above her butt crack. Really classy!'


One day on set, Emma asked the costume designer whether they shouldn't do something about her bra strap showing through under a top.


'"No, sweetie—Nicki is all about her bra strap showing,'" Emma said the stylist replied. 'I was like, "right, okay, different mind-set."'

He's old enough to be her father, but Emma also admitted her number one celebrity crush is Kevin Costner.


'I met him in an elevator the other day, and I couldn’t even speak,' she said.


'He said hello, because he is lovely like that, and I couldn’t say anything back,' she added.

Britney has struggled with her weight in the past but she now seems to have reached a happy and healthy medium.


The star opened up about maintaining her famous derriere, telling the publication: 'I like it, then again, I hate it. I’m in my 30s now, so I have to work harder to keep it "up."'


Britney credits yoga and the Nutrisystem weight loss programs to keep her weight in check, but she said she is struggling to remain healthy.


'Dieting is tough… because my specialties are spaghetti, brownies and chocolate chip cookies,' she admits.


It is not the only revelation the Womanizer hit-maker has made of late, as she has revealed she would like to have another child.


Britney, who has two sons from her marriage to Kevin Federline, told Extra on Wednesday: 'I want a girl.'

The Chelsea-based hairdresser, whose team has tended to the tresses of not just Kate but the entire Middleton family, was speaking at the launch of shopping site tothetops.com .


He said: ‘I really don’t remember another time in my whole career where people have come in and asked for a haircut as many times as they have asked for a Rachel. Not even people wanting their haircut like Kate Middleton and she has the most beautiful hair.’


He added the only other celebrity style to have come close to The Rachel was the bob Victoria Beckham sported a few years ago.


The royal-mother-to-be is a loyal client at Mr Ward’s salon and it is believed he even cut in the fringe she debuted last November days before she confirmed she was pregnant.


Mr Ward said: “I’ve done so many celebrity haircuts that I’m proud of- Kate Middleton being one of them but, you know what, if I could actually create something like the Rachel – Jennifer Aniston’s haircut in Friends - or Meg Ryan’s haircut, those kind of classic haircuts I wouldn’t work any more.’


Last week the man behind Miss Aniston’s most famous hairstyle revealed he was high when he created ‘The Rachel’.

Chris McMillan made the confession during an interview saying 'I'm 14 years sober - so I feel safe enough to say that.'


Mr McMillan created the cut for Miss Aniston, 44, for the role of Rachel Green in hit TV show Friends, between the first and second seasons of the sitcom.


The Rachel duly became one of the most requested styles in salons around the world during the 1990s and according to one poll remains the most popular of all time among British women.


In interviews with the US media, Mr McMillan said he designed the look because Miss Aniston’s hair was originally long and frizzy.

Move over Drake! Chris Brown uses unheard vocals from late singer Aaliyah on new track

 


They have been part of an ongoing feud over their shared ex-girlfriend Rihanna for quite some time now.


And now Chris Brown has carried the rivalry through to his professional life by showing that whatever Drake can do, he can do better.


The 24-year-old announced on Tuesday that his latest tune features never-before-heard vocals from singer Aaliyah, who passed away in a plane crash in 2001.

The use of her vocals will undoubtedly annoy his rival Drake - who sampled her voice in his track Enough Said in August.


 


The lyrical content of the tune was considered by many listeners as being a vehicle to attack Brown.


Now Brown is set to release his track They Don't Know - taken from his upcoming album X - and has promised fans a ‘special’ treat by including the late R&B star's voice.

Speaking at the BET Awards 2013 press conference, where he was nominated for Best Male R&B/Pop Artist, Chris said: ‘I got something special for my fans.


'It's called They Don't Know. This song features Aaliyah. And never-before-heard vocals.


'All new stuff that's never been heard before.’


The Forever hitmaker shot the video for the song in the Los Angeles ‘hood’ last weekend and hopes his chosen location will unite people from various backgrounds.


He added: ‘I shot it in the 'hood. I went to 60th Street and Cedar Block.

‘[I'm] bringing both worlds together and trying to uplift the poverty side of the community and show them where I'm from.


'I'm from Virginia, but everybody comes from a broken home or being broke - I remember when I was.’


Aaliyah is just one of many artists to feature on his unreleased album, which is out in July.


Other big names to lend their vocals include Nicki Minaj and Kendrick Lamar, in addition to production by Pharrell Williams, Timbaland, Polow Da Don, Danja and Drumma Boy.

Drake, real name Aubrey Drake Graham, and Chris were caught up in a massive brawl at W.i.P nightclub in New York last June where many bystanders were injured.


The fight, which left the club looking like a war zone with broken bottles everywhere, was supposedly caused by Chris sending Drake a bottle of champagne. 


Drake reportedly sent the bottle back to Brown with a note reading 'I'm f****** the love of your life, deal with it'.


Though Brown, who was famously plead guilty to the felony charge of assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, was enraged by the note, he claims that he was not the one to start the fight and points the finger at Drake and his entourage instead.


Basketball star Tony Parker, who was previously married to actress Eva Longoria, said that he had to sit out a week of training for the Olympics because his cornea was scratched during the fight.

'He's killing himself': Troubled Macaulay Culkin 'at serious risk of lung cancer from 60 cigarettes A DAY habit'

He was said to be close to death last year as he allegedly battled a devastating heroin addiction.


But he managed to clean himself up, and now it seems Macaulay Culkin has replaced drugs with another dangerous habit.


The 32-year-old is said to be smoking a whopping 60 cigarettes a day, leading to new health fears for the troubled former child star.

'He's put his nicotine addiction into overdrive,' a source told the National Enquirer. 'Almost every time I see him, he has a cigarette dangling from his lips and is puffing furiously.'


The effects of his unhealthy habit are starting to show, said another source.


'He's coughing a lot, his teeth are yellowing, and friends and family are worried he's killing himself.'


Experts tell the publication that the actor's addiction puts him at serious risk of contracting lung cancer.


Jerome Spunberg, a radiation oncologist in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, (who has not treated the star) told the National Enquirer that Macaulay has '30 times the risk' of dying from the disease than someone who doesn't smoke.


Another doctor, Herman Kattlove, former spokesperson for the American Cancer Society, said Macaulay's lung cancer risk will 'eventually exceed 100 times that of a nonsmoker.'


Macualay is also chugging cognac, beer and energy drinks, say insiders.


Sources say his recent troubles are as a result of a recent breakup with an ex-stripper girlfriend, and he also had a run-in with a photographer outside a nightclub in Brighton, UK.


'All of this has Mac very stressed out, and that causes him to smoke more,' said a friend.


MailOnline reached out to Macaulay's rep for comment but did not receive any response.


Last August, The National Enquirer reported that Macaulay had a $6000-a-month drug habit and that he was hooked on 'hillbilly heroin.'


But a spokeswoman for the actor branded the claims published in the National Enquirer as 'ridiculously fictitious' and 'insulting'.

The National Enquirer, however, issued a statement to say they were firmly standing by their story.


A source told the publication: 'Macaulay Culkin is hooked on drugs and it's killing him.


'He's been hooked for a year and a half, and his drug of choice is either heroin or oxycodone.


 

The source - described by the Enquirer as a 'close friend' - also claimed Macaulay has had a close brush with death in the past year and almost overdosed.


'Mac suffered a near overdose, and needed help,' the insider said.


Macaulay's half sister Jennifer Adamson died of a drug overdose in 2000.


 

Child star: Macauley is best known for his role as cheeky Kevin McCallister in the 1992 film Home Alone

Macaulay is best known for his roles as cheeky Kevin McCallister in the 1990 film Home Alone and the 1992 sequel, Home Alone: Lost In New York.


He also starred in the likes of Uncle Buck, My Girl and Richie Rich.


But his adult career has failed to match the blockbuster success of his childhood days.


In 2003 he played a drug-addled club hopper alongside Seth Green in Party Monster, while his last film role was in 2007 in the Indie flick Sex And Breakfast.


These days he earns a living deejaying at clubs around New York.

LIZ JONES: White's hot this summer, but can you wear it if you're not walking up the aisle?


The catwalks were full of white for this summer. The models were like ghosts - or at least looked as though they were still in their nighties.

Stella McCartney showed a white mesh blouson, Victoria Beckham a white blouse and skater skirt edged with orange, Valentino a white cotton blouse and skirt in broderie anglaise. Moschino even sent out a white broderie anglaise jumpsuit, with side cleavage exposed.

Now I have a little bit of a problem with a grown woman wearing broderie anglaise, a crisp holey fabric meant only for children. This fabric, especially in a maxi skirt, reminds me of that dreadful fashion trend: boho.

Broderie anglaise is meant to look stiff, and clean, as though cut from expensive writing paper, but the boho appropriation rendered it sloppy, tiered and creased.


Valentino Spring Summer 2013 Paris Fashion Week

But white can be wonderful, especially in a crisp white shirt or extra thick, extra-long white T-shirt (when I had money, I would relegate a perfect white Gap tee to its next incarnation as a duster after one wear).

Prada Sport does the best white tee in the world - thick, with a tiny pocket - but if you want to eat this month, try the new range at M&S instead. A washing tip: don't over-heat, and add a touch of Vanish, which avoids any yellowing.







Pairing white jeans with a striped Breton top, or navy blazer, will take you anywhere, but anything head-to-toe white I find slightly problematic: you might look like Nurse Ratched, as though you have misplaced your insane asylum patient.

So if you choose this look you must add a touch of colour somewhere: in an orange belt or bag, a zingy shoe, an embellished neckline or at least fluorescent nails.

Far better is to choose just one piece in white: I love Topshop's leather mini skirt, and its longline silk tuxedo jacket (Topshop Unique, £195), which is great over anything: shorts, brown legs and flats on holiday, or even a long dress for evening, sleeves pushed up to the elbow.

A black tux looks great with white stilettos, which are no longer considered Essex at all. (Whistles has a mid-heel stiletto, Cassini, for £125.)

A fantastic little book is How To Wear White, by Francesca Beauman (Bloomsbury, £12.99), whose author, rather perversely, believes ‘white suits very few people'.

It warns that any bride over the age of 35 should eschew this colour entirely, an edict I find a tad harsh. Better than pure white, she advises, is to choose something that is just ‘off'.

White, of course, comes in many shades, from ivory to chalk, so it shouldn't be hard to avoid pure or paper white.

My advice? Never wear white when your dress is long: it can look too bridey. Coats in white are problematic too: you will spend a fortune on dry cleaning.

A white bag is perfect for a wedding (please don't carry your old battered, sagging, scuffed work bag anywhere this summer), but it must be blemish-free: my trick is to use the soft cloth bag you bought it in as a sort of extra lining inside, and never, ever carry a Biro, or touch it when there is any trace of foundation on your fingers. Underwear must be nude or white, with no twiddly bits, as white can be see-through.

White fabrics I'd avoid (as well as broderie anglaise) include lace, linen and embroidery of any sort - it gets a bit Heidi.

A sheer panel in white looks very fresh: see Topshop's A-line skirt with sheer stripe, or Stella McCartney's sheer shirt.

My favourite look for summer is an oversized wool sweater in school uniform grey (by Dries Van Noten) over a sheer white shirt (Paul Smith, Frank & Eileen do long white shirts in voile) with tails poking out from beneath.

My top white buys for summer

  • Cotton flared jeans, £195, Joseph: perfect for holiday or the office if dressed up with a navy blazer.

  • Leather rucksack, £160, Grafea: will make even a black trouser suit seem summery.

  • blouse with embellished collar, £40, Zara: a simple shape, while the colour adds interest.

  • Cigarette pants with black stripe, £85, French Connection: great with white moccasins.

  • Strappy sandal, £195, LK Bennett: classier than plain, patent courts.

  • Leather clutch, £275, by Mulberry: perfect for evenings and weddings.

  • Leather skirt with asymmetric hem, £120, Topshop Unique: I love this skirt, which can be dressed down for holiday, or up with a black tuxedo.



LIZ JONES SPIES ON....Burberry, Bond Street, London W1




I thought I would give the nice people at Burberry a little challenge.


So on the day of my visit I wore a pair of dirty wellies, had no make-up on, which tends to frighten people, and took along my border collie, Michael.


Oh, and I was carrying two heavy bags. And an extension lead, so Michael could roam at weird angles, threatening to trip me up in a cat's cradle.

Liz Jones was impressed with the service in Burberry on Bond Street, especially since she brought her dog shopping with herLiz Jones was impressed with the service in Burberry on Bond Street, especially since she brought her dog shopping with her


To my surprise, the doorman opened the door for my motley load, nodded, smiled, and even offered to hold my laptop while I browsed.


Michael hovered perilously close to all the embellished trenches, and to the fur, and to the python, but not one impeccably dressed and very pretty sales assistant turned a hair.


This store was full of tourists, unlike Hermes opposite, which seemed as quiet as a country church in comparison.


I asked for a cheap option for a wedding, which raised brows, as nothing there is cheap, although the staff were helpful, directing me towards simple cotton dresses, and a scarf, although even these summer scarves were £275.


I didn't try anything on, as with a dog, it was far too complicated, plus I didn't want to get the sales assistants' backs up by not buying anything.


Nevertheless, this store seemed welcoming and unsnooty. They only lose a point for not having a bowl of water near the door for dogs.
