Angelina Jolie NOT Substituting Cigarettes For Food, Despite Report

Angelina Jolie is NOT substituting cigarettes for food amid the drama involving her divorce, despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”

“Stress Is A Drag For Angie,” reads a headline in this week’s OK!, which alleges Jolie’s battle with Brad Pitt over the custody of their six children has exacerbated her smoking habits so much that she’s passing up food in favor of cigarettes. A so-called “source” tells the outlet, “Angie easily gets through two packs of Parliaments a day. She’s been in a constant state of anxiety since filing those divorce papers, and the only thing that calms her down is her smokes.” The magazine’s questionable insider further contends Jolie has tried to quit smoking for years, but “she picks it right back up” when she’s stressed.

Gossip Cop previously debunked the claim that Jolie was chain-smoking cigarettes to cope with her divorce when OK!’s sister company RadarOnline wrongly reported that. Nevertheless, we still checked with an impeccable insider about the claim that Jolie’s substituting cigarettes for food, and we’re assured it’s entirely “not true.” We’re not really shocked by the tabloid’s inaccuracy, since Gossip Cop has repeatedly corrected the publication for a string of false articles about the actress, including last week’s bogus cover story that falsely stated Jolie and Pitt were reuniting for Thanksgiving.

Leah Remini Meets A Former Scientologist Who Claims The Church Ignored Her Statutory Rape In The Premiere Of Scientology & The Aftermath!

Leah Remini is waging war on the Church of Scientology!

The King of Queens alum’s highly anticipated docuseries, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, debuted on A&E Tuesday night — and boy, it didn’t hold back!

Not only did Jennifer Lopez‘s bestie get candid about her own estrangement with the controversial religion, she also sat down with others who had abandoned the Church of Scientology — leading to the premiere’s most shocking revelations.

And as Leah perfectly put it, their stories were “deeper and darker” than anyone could’ve expected!

Be sure to ch-ch-check out the highlights from the eye-opening docuseries for yourself (below)!

Leah vs. The Church Of Scientology

Miz Remini kicked off her new show the only way she could, by opening up about her own harrowing experiences with the Church.

First, the docuseries shared a statement from the Church claiming Remini was lying about what happened to her in order to further her career. Then, viewers watched flashbacks of Leah promoting the faith throughout her 35 years as a devout member.

Leah explains her stepfather got her family into the religion… only to leave her mother (who was pregnant at the time) for another woman. The family became dependent on the Church in their time of need. And although Leah had become a well-respected and famous member of the faith, she never felt truly respected.

For example, Leah was allegedly humiliated at Tom Cruise‘s wedding when she asked where church leader David Miscavige‘s wife was. This sparked her initial investigation into Scientology’s rumored abuses — which resulted in her and her family being punished.

So what are the Church’s abuses?

First, the members are being scammed as they are expected to purchase church-sanctioned books and services all in the name of self-improvement.

But it only gets worse from there…

Leak Talks To ​Bonny and Amy

Leah decided to film her conversation with mother-daughter duo Bonny Elliott and Amy Scobee before she had even resolved to make a TV show. She revealed it was Bonny and Amy’s story that inspired her to collect more stories about the Church’s abuses. And we don’t blame her.

Amy, who was once in charge of recruiting celebrity members, revealed she was the victim of statutory rape at the age of 14.

Apparently, Miz Scobee was taken advantage of by one of her bosses (who was also a member of Scientology), and when the man’s wife learned about the incident the couple decided to tell the Church what had happened. Unfortunately, it was Amy who was blamed for the violation and the incident was never reported to her parents or the police.

David Miscavige Allegedly Abuses Members Of The Faith

According to Amy, Miscavige is a “very angry” person who would resort to physical violence if upset. She shared:

“If you said something that didn’t please him he would go off on you. If you were a man he would likely hit you, punch you, knock you down, choke you.”

This obviously caused Scobee to have doubts, which resulted in her being sent to do manual labor at the Rehabilitation Project Force. Amy and her husband escaped the RPF and were labeled “suppressive people”.

Due to her daughter’s departure from Scientology, Bonny was put in danger and was ordered by the higher-ups to sever all ties with her flesh-and-blood. Eventually, Elliot and her husband also left Scientology and the whole family was reunited — a situation which rarely happens!

Sadly, Bonny passed away from cancer two weeks after telling her tale on camera.

Be sure to catch Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath on A&E on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. EST for more tea on Scientology.

Amanda Seyfried is pregnant! The actress is expecting her first child with fiancé Thomas Sadoski, it was revealed on Tuesday.

The mom-to-be actually broke the big news herself by showing off her blossoming baby bump at a Givenchy event. Seyfried, who was on hand as a spokesperson for the new Live Irrésistible fragrance, showed off her growing belly by wearing a sheer dress. The see-through outfit left little to the imagination, although she verbally confirmed the pregnancy as well.

The announcement comes two and half months after reps confirmed to Gossip Cop that Seyfried and Sadoski were engaged to be married. As we reported at the time, the couple originally met while starring in the Off-Broadway play, The Way We Get By Together, in the spring of 2015. Then, earlier this year, they embarked on a relationship during production of the film, The Last Word.

This will be the second marriage for Sadoski, who currently stars on “Life In Pieces.” Though wedding plans have yet to be announced, the nuptials will mark Seyfried’s first trip down the aisle. And now the spouses-to-be will go on the adventure known as parenthood, too. Gossip Cop congratulates the couple on starting a family. We’ll continue to have updates!

Is Celeb-Level Fitness Realistic For The Average Joe?

We’re all too used to hearing about the fitness transformations of celebrities, none more so than in the Hollywood sphere.

Mega-stars like Gerard Butler (300) and Chris Hemsworth (Thor) are often lauded for their ability to bulk up for starring roles on the big screen; but how much work goes into achieving a movie star physique and is it realistic for the rest of us mere mortals?

A recent research experiment conducted by Voucherbox seeks to find out exactly that. Three members of the Voucherbox staff have decided to pick up the gauntlet thrown down by fitness nutrition manufacturer Myprotein, specifically their claim that anybody can get ripped in just 12 weeks.

If you’re thinking about getting in shape yourself then it may well be worth keeping tabs on their progress. But, in the meantime, here are some top tips if you’re looking to transform your physique in a small space of time.

Knowing Where to Start

This is the first step for anybody looking to improve their fitness, particularly those gunning for celeb-level hunkiness.

Before you jump straight into 50 press-ups every morning, noon and night, if you’re going to make steady progress towards your fitness goal then it’s essential to evaluate your current physical situation. The path to success is different for everybody and is likely to be dependent on your current weight, height, exercise and eating habits.

Set yourself a goal (i.e. to look vaguely like Chris Hemsworth) and decide how much time and money you’re willing to commit per week. This will form the basis of your basic diet and exercise plan. Plus, it will enable you to research options that you can afford.

Of course, nutrition/fitness programmes like the 12-week schedule offered by Myprotein are worth checking out too, but it may be better in the long run to form a schedule that is bespoke to your own needs.

Considering Expert Assistance?

Getting ripped is no mean feat, and it’s certainly no accident either. It takes a lot of knowledge of the human body, dietary requirements and physiology to understand how to achieve peak physical fitness. This level of knowledge doesn’t happen overnight.

It should come as no surprise that most, if not all, Hollywood heartthrobs have employed the services of a personal trainer at some point or another. When Chris Hemsworth landed the part of Thor, he immediately called on the services of a former Navy SEAL to run his fitness regime. It’s not just about expert knowledge either; if you struggle with self-motivation then having somebody bark motivational phrases at you can definitely help to keep you on track with your goal.

Sure, the Internet is an incredible source of information. If you’re willing to put in the hours then you will be able to research enough in order to form a pretty tight exercise/diet plan that should eventually get you to where you want to be.

Don’t get Disheartened

Whichever route you decide to go down, make sure you take the time to research your best options and set yourself realistic short-term targets. This is so important to keep taking continual steps towards your goal.

Remember that the circumstances for Hollywood movie stars are likely to be very different to your own. For one, they are paid millions of dollars to get in shape, which is more than enough motivation to get on a rowing machine every other day. Couple that with the fact that they have unlimited access to the best personal trainers, exercise and diet plans in the world and you may even start to feel better about your own progress.

By all means, keep that poster of Thor on your wall as something to aspire to. Just don’t get disheartened after six months if you don’t quite look as good in a tight leather vest and little red cape.

Rob Kardashian, Blac Chyna NOT Living Apart, Despite Report

Rob Kardashian Blac Chyna Living Apart

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are NOT “living apart,” despite a new report. Gossip Cop can correct this made-up claim. We’re told it’s “completely wrong.”

According to the repeatedly discredited HollywoodLife, even after the birth of their daughter Dream, Kardashian and Chyna are “still living separately.” One of the webloid’s ill-informed or seemingly fabricated sources says, “Rob and Blac are living apart after the birth of baby Dream,” noting, “They are really happy to be new parents, but their relationship is not progressing like they had hoped it would after Dream’s birth.” And that’s about all of the supposed details the unreliable site has.

Not surprisingly, the story from HollywoodLies, as it’s known, is 100 percent factually inaccurate. In fact, contrary to the outlet’s claim, following Dream’s birth, Kardashian actually moved into Chyna’s home because he wants to spend every possible moment with his daughter. A source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop, the two are enjoying co-parenting Dream and each other’s company. As for webloid’s latest article, our impeccable insider says it is “completely wrong.”

Of course, HollywoodLife has a pattern of publishing lies. Just one day ago, Gossip Cop busted the often disproven site when it falsely alleged Chyna and Tyga’s son wants to change his name to Kardashian. Much like that article and many others from that site, the story about Chyna and Kardashian “living apart” is untrue.

Kanye West Is ‘Under Constant Watch’ At Hospital

Sadly, it doesn’t seem Kanye West is getting better.

Last Monday, the rapper was hospitalized for exhaustion and sleep deprivation at UCLA Medical Center shortly after canceling the remaining dates of his Saint Pablo Tour.

As we reported, the musician was scheduled to be released on Monday but the facility felt he was not stable. As of this writing, there is no release date.

According to new reports, Yeezus has been closely monitored by medical professionals for his safety. An insider says he has:

“big ups and big downs, but this bout seems to be much more serious. In the hospital he has been very paranoid and is under constant watch for his safety.”

As documented, West has been paranoid and “profoundly depressed” throughout his hospital stay. Sources don’t believe he will be let go anytime soon.

“He’s still there because clearly he’s not doing well.”

Although he is struggling, wife Kim Kardashian is by his side as he gets help. She:

“acts very concerned. She says he has yet to be diagnosed, but she uses words like paranoia and explained that Kanye thinks everyone is out to get him. The only person Kanye trusts is Kim.”

While his progress has stalled, the KUWTK star is doing everything in her power to be supportive of her husband.

“Kim does spend hours with Kanye every day. She says that Kanye is on many different medications and that his doctors are figuring out proper doses. Kim says that not much has changed since he was admitted and that his doctors seem concerned.”

We wish Kanye the best of luck with his recovery.

Celebrities React: Ohio State University Shooting

Celebrities are reacting to the shooting at the Ohio State University campus on Monday. At around 9:40 a.m. EST, a vehicle rammed into the school’s Watts Hall, with two suspects emerging from the car with a gun and a large knife. The school initially sent out a tweet at 9:56 a.m., informing its students of an active shooter on campus. By 11:30 a.m., the university announced that the scene was secure. One suspect is dead, while at least ten people have been transported to a local hospital, with one in critical condition. See stars’ reactions below.

LeBron James expressed, “Praying for all students on @OhioState campus!! Please find safety asap!!” Kyle Richards tweeted, “So sad and scary! Let’s all say a prayer for Ohio. This has to stop!” Donnie Wahlberg offered, “Sending love and prayers to all #Buckeyes #PrayForOSU #OhioStateUniversity.”

Shannen Doherty wrote, “Praying for all at #Ohio State University. Run. Hide Fight.” She added, “It’s so disturbing that we lived in a world that now has a slogan… Run. Hide. Fight. No one should have to. #Ohio.” Meanwhile, Jenna Fischer tweeted along with a link to a Facebook Safety Check, “For those in Columbus Ohio you can mark yourself SAFE and check for loved ones here.” Gossip Cop will continue to update as more celebrities react to the shooting at Ohio State University.

Kim Kardashian Has Been Nursing Kanye West Back To Health As She’s Taken To Sleeping By The Rapper’s Side & Feeding Him Too!

Kim Kardashian West has really been there for Kanye West!

As you surely know, the KUWTK star’s husband was hospitalized at the UCLA Medical Center for a psychiatric evaluation last week. Of course, this health incident came shortly after ‘Ye canceled the remainder of his Saint Pablo tour and days after he ranted about Jay Z, Beyoncé, and Hillary Clinton during his Sacramento concert.

So obviously, it wasn’t shocking when several reports started dropping about what exactly caused the A-lister’s breakdown. In fact, some even claimed that tension between Kimye may’ve been to blame for West’s issues. However, amid this gossip, Mrs. West has been the epitome of a dutiful wife as she’s remained by her man’s side. It’s said Keeks has even taken to sleeping by Yeezus’ side at the hospital.

One source dished to Us Weekly:

“Kim has been amazing. She knew he couldn’t keep going the way he was. She has been by his side through all of this, helping to feed him and laying by his side.”

Talk about dedication! The reality TV vet’s actions remind us of her sister Khloé Kardashian — who dutifully slept by ex Lamar Odom‘s side in his hospital room following his overdose. The insider added:

“All the Kardashian women stick by their men.”

True dat! Not to mention, Kardashian has had to put her own emotional trauma on hold in order to take care of her husband. In case you forgot, back in October, the 36-year-old was bound, gagged, and robbed at gun during Paris Fashion Week. Supposedly, Kimmy has done a complete 180 as she was an “emotional wreck” prior to Kanye’s hospitalization and is now serving as the Famous rapper’s rock.

We mean, according to TMZ sources, the controversial celeb was at one point ranting about how people were trying to destroy his and Kim’s marriage. One confidant noted:

“She has been an unbelievably devoted spouse. He’s a lucky man.”

Still it sounds like Kanye is doing much better as Kim allegedly wants to bring him home sometime today (November 28) so that she can continue to help him to get better. We’re honestly wishing the entire Kardashian-West family the best during this tough time.
