2011 is about to end, which means that it is time to weigh in on the star that have marked the past 12 months.
Loved or hated, one thing is sure: these celebrities are always in the spotlight.
The Fireworks singer and her comedian hubby have been the target of a series of divorce rumors lately.
The latest buzz alleges that the two spent Christmas separately as Katy went to Hawaii, while Russell remained in England to party. In addition, both were seen without their wedding rings.
Yet, Russell Brand has recently denied rumors of separation in a November interview with Ellen DeGeneres, saying the Internet is full of lies.
After the royal wedding buzz slowly cooled down, the press started speculating about a possible heir to the throne.
And if a royal baby were to arrive soon, he or she would quickly ascend to the throne.
Queen Elizabeth II and the Commonwealth have agreed to change certain rules in the British Monarchy. Not only the heir to the throne could now be a girl, but the first child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be allowed to marry a Catholic.
Back in October, the media went wild with rumors that the 30-year-old singer is using a prosthetic stomach and that a surrogate is carrying her child.
The confusion increased when B appeared in a 30-second video shot on September 23 and ion which she states that she is 6 months pregnant, meaning she should give birth in December.
Given that she previosuly announced her due date to be February 2012, the clip actually cast more doubt on her pregnancy.
January Jones, who gave birth to a baby boy named Xander on September 13, has kept the father’s identity secret. On October 17, the website BlindGossip.com ran a blind item about an unnamed actress’ pregnancy.
“This married actor had a one-night stand with one of his exes, who is an actress in an acclaimed television show. She wound up pregnant. The actor’s wife found out about the baby, and, to no one’s surprise, went completely ballistic. Both the actor and his wife tried every tactic (money, lawyers, threats to ruin her career) to convince the ex to terminate the pregnancy,” Fox News quoted the website as saying.
The online gossip blogger Michael K. of DListed.com posted an item that said “all signs point to January Jones.”
Many assume that the “married actor” is Ashton Kutcher, the “ex” is January Jones and the “actor’s wife” is Demi Moore, who has recently filed for divorce.
Justin Bieber had his share of scandal this year after 20-year-old Mariah Yeater claimed that the singer, who currently dates Selena Gomez, is the father of her three-month-old baby and demanded a paternity test.
The teen singer accepted to take a paternity test to prove that he’s not the father of Yeater’s baby, Tristyn.
Yeater eventually dropped her request for paternity testing.
The actress is another celebrity who has been at the heart of pregnancy and marriage rumors. During a recent press conference, the 42-year-old tried to set the record straight.
“Rumor number one: I am not planning to get married any time soon,” she told Hello! Magazine. “I’ve been married once, and I don’t know if I’ll get married again. But I can tell you that as of this very moment, I have no plan to get married. Got that?”
She continued: “And rumor Number two: no, we’re not pregnant. It’s just I quit smoking, so I’ve gained a couple of pounds.”
The 36-year-old actress had to constantly deny marriage rumors in the past year. According to various sources close to the couple, they don’t plan to tie the knot any time soon.
Even though in an interview with USA Weekend Pitt admitted, “The kids ask about marriage. It’s meaning more and more to them. So it’s something we’ve got to look at,” the two actors are reportedly currently too busy switching between movie sets and spending time with their brood of six.
However, they are said to remain open to the idea of one day walking down the aisle.
Recently, we reported that JLo was hooking up with one of her backup dancers, Casper Smart, 24.
According to reports, the two have been seen together in New York recently, trying to avoid the photographers, and are rumored to have been secretly dating for a few weeks now.
However, according to a source familiar with the situation, it’s “nothing serious” for the pair, at least for now.
