The Met Gala is Monday, May 6 and we just heard this EXCLUSIVE tidbit. We previously reported Kim Kardashian was wearing Balenciaga to the event which makes sense since she IS the brand’s ambassador. Well Kim pulled a fast one and decided she wanted to go in a different direction so she scrapped her original outfit and is now wearing something else and not Balenciaga. Remember where you read this, as it should send waves through the fashion world since since Kim and Balenciaga are in business together and everyone expects her to wear the label on fashion’s biggest night.

President Joe Biden made news this week when he revealed he would be willing to debate Donald Trump in their race for the White House. Here’s what we just heard. This presidential debate might be unlike any other in the our nation’s history as the plan is for Biden and Trump to each choose one moderator to ask the questions with NOTHING off-limits. While countless details still need to be worked out, including the date and location, expect a debate unlike any other. My source says Trump has yet to agree to this arrangement since he’s terrified of answering questions from the seemingly liberal moderator the Biden campaign will likely select.

Justin Bieber made headlines after posting selfies of him crying and then he was spotted hanging out in Kauai, Hawaii. Here’s what we know. Justin is blaming a lot of his emotional issues on the pressures and temptations of living in Los Angeles, so he and his wife Hailey Bieber flew to Hawaii to look at homes. They’re planning to unload their sprawling Beverly Park estate, put down roots in Hawaii, and then buy a pied a terre in Los Angeles when they need to be in town for work. They love the island of Kauai, but also are looking at Maui and the Big Island.

Britney Spears made headlines as well- for numerous reasons including fears about her financial situation, settling her lawsuit with her father, and finalizing her divorce from ex-husband Sam Asghari. We know this… Britney’s mom Lynne is more involved behind the scenes than she’s letting on, and while she’s not micromanaging Britney or her finances, she is monitoring the situation and has safety nets in place just in case Britney spirals out of control. My source says that this time around if the consensus is that Britney needs a conservatorship it will be Lynne who is in charge.

And finally this. Travis Kelce inked a two-year deal with his team the Kansas City Chiefs making him the HIGHEST paid tight end in the NFL. While his $34.25 million contract is already public knowledge, here’s something we know that hasn’t been publicized. The deal also includes a secret bonus of $100,000 per regular season game, $250,000 for playoff games and a whopping $500,000 for the Super Bowl if his girlfriend (and likely soon-to-be fiance) Taylor Swift attends. My source say that Taylor’s presence at games brings in MILLIONS in additional revenue so that’s why Travis is getting the bonuses when she attends.

Celine Dion might be saying say au revoir to Paris and aloha to Honolulu. The ailing singer is suffering from stiff person syndrome and it’s so bad she indefinitely postponed her tour. Celine’s a fighter though, and she’s NOT giving up. A specialist recommended she avoid cold weather, so she’s thinking about dividing her time between her Paris apartment and her mansion in Las Vegas – and then buying a home in tropical and warm Hawaii. Celine plans to spend the hottest summer months between Vegas and Paris and the rest of the year soaking up the sunshine in Honolulu. A source says she’s looking at oceanfront homes in the posh community between Diamond Head and Kahala Beach.

Forget Chicago. (It was 11 degrees there this weekend.) Former Prez Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle are looking to live part-time where Barack grew up – in beautiful Hawaii. They’ve always vacationed there with their daughters, and now the Obamas are building a new home there- but it hasn’t been easy. Their beachfront property on the island of Oahu is causing an uproar with neighbors. First an ancient burial site had to be moved, and a turtle pond was threatened. The acreage also features a sea wall that could accelerate erosion of the public beach. Obama has been dealing successfully with most of the problems and he stopped by the site to inspect progress this week. Barack and Michelle also dined at the Island Vintage Wine Bar in Honolulu and posed for a photo with the owner Paul Kang and the chef Christine Lee. Both look relaxed and happy – and well fed.


We feel more than a twinge of envy for Matthew McConaughey’s new $7.85 million dollar vacation home in Hawaii. The 7000 sq ft home sits on an acre with magnificent ocean views and a huge infinity pool. 6 bedrooms and 6 1/2 bathrooms, including TWO master suites and a media room. Matthew pulled his 89 year old mother Kay out of her retirement community during the pandemic, and she’s been quarantining with Matthew, his wife Camila, their three kids, and four dogs. Luckily, his mom and Camila struck up nice friendship. We have a feeling mom will be claiming that second master.

Eddie Murphy is turning on the charm for his Australian glamour model girlfriend Paige Butcher as they lounge on the balcony of a hotel in Hawaii where they’re vacationing. Eddie had been playing the guitar and singing to Paige earlier. This is a long term romance for Eddie, 52. (Are we crazy or did Eddie used to say in his stand-up act that he wouldn’t date white women?) He and Paige, 33, have been together since last fall.

Steven Tyler REALLY didn’t like photos taken of him on the beach in Hawaii. He went so far as to ask a senator there to sponsor legislation making it a civil violation if people take unwanted photos or videos of others without permission. The Aerosmith singer owns a million dollar home in Maui and hates seeing unflattering pics of himself splashed all over magazines. Senate members approved the “Steven Tyler bill” to protect celebrities, and now it goes to the House for voting, where clearer heads are expected to prevail.

We can think of two people who might be frolicking in the ocean in Hawaii with her kids (Dexter, 14, and Duke, 9, above) while wearing a black long sleeve t shirt and black pants. One is Madonna and the other is in this photo: Diane Keaton. Diane has never been one to show a lot of skin and on top of that, she likes to keep the sun at bay. At least she’s not wearing a turtleneck.


We’re not at ALL surprised that Megan Fox suddenly decided to marry Brian Austin Green. (A tiny ceremony, June 24, at the Four Seasons Hotel in Hawaii.) Gorgeous Megan seems to have lost all her self-confidence and she took the easy and safe way out. She was madly in love with her Transformers costar Shia LaBeouf, but that didn’t work out, and she returned to her longtime BF Brian. It was a shock when she lost her lucrative Transformers 3 job so easily and was REPLACED so quickly by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Then her movie “Jonah Hex” flopped miserably last week. It was all too much – the insecure Megan grabbed her life support – the reliable Brian, who’s more than willing to take care of her.
