BEBE REXHA SHUTS DOWN PREGNANCY RUMORS – (04/05/2019)
When a fan seemed to think that Bebe Rexha was pregnant after seeing a photo of her on Twitter, Bebe took the time to shut down that rumor quick.
It all started when a fan posted two photos of Bebe heading into the BBC Radio 2 studios. In the shots, the singer was wearing a low cut black top and jeans. Another fan then commented, “Omg. Bebe is preggy.”
Bebe saw the comment and was quick to shut down the rumor by writing, “No I’m chubby” with an eye roll emoji.
Bebe made headlines a few weeks ago when she came forward to say no designer would dress her for the 2019 Grammys because she’s a size 6/8.
BRITNEY SPEARS’ KIDS ARE WITH THEIR DAD KEVIN FEDERLINE AS SHE ENTERS MENTAL HEALTH FACILITY – (04/05/2019)
Kevin Federline’s lawyer has released a statement praising his ex wife Britney Spears.
“Kevin commends Britney for recognizing that she needs to take a step back and that she is taking the reasonable steps to deal with her situation in a responsible way,” his lawyer told The Blast in a statement.
Britney reportedly checked into a facility amid her father’s declining health.
Their two kids, 13-year-old, Sean Preston, and 12-year-old, Jayden James, are said to be with Kevin at this time.
Federline and Spears were recently locked in a battle over child support and she was ordered to pay “thousands more” in support, plus $100,000 for lawyer fees. According to The Blast, Federline is now considering heading back to court to ask for more money from Britny to care for the kids while she is away.
Spears’ emotional well-being took a turn for the worse after her father’s colon ruptured last year. The 37-year-old star has been extremely upset over the ongoing medical issues with her dad after revealing he almost died. She even postponed her Las Vegas residency to deal with her father’s illness.

ALESSIA CARA DROPS ‘OUT OF LOVE’ VIDEO – (04/05/2019)
Alessia Cara has released the video for her wistful breakup song, “Out of Love.”
The video begins with a montage of couples sharing intimate, loving moments with each other. But those scenes soon transition into painful splits, with Alessia there to witness the heartbreak.
On Twitter, Alessia explains the inspiration behind the video. “Because I didn’t write this song about me I wanted the video to portray being a bystander to other people’s stories,” she writes.
The song was written for a friend of Alessia’s, who had gone through a tough breakup with his girlfriend. She told Seth Meyers back in January that when her friend played the song for his ex, the two ended up getting back together.
“Out of Love” is the latest single from Alessia’s The Pains of Growing album. She’s currently on tour opening for fellow Canadian Shawn Mendes.
