Has Jennifer Lawrence already found herself a new beau?
The A-list actress recently split from Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and has since been spotted spending time with someone else. Lawrence was seen at the Los Angeles home ofRed Army director and producer Gabe Polsky on Friday afternoon, according to the New York Daily News.
The report goes on to explain that J.Law spent nearly five hours at his residence, ordering pizza multiple times (because there's never too much pizza) and ultimately suggesting that the blond beauty may be dating Polsky.
So is this the latest new couple alert in Hollywood?
Nope, that doesn't seem to be the case at all. Multiple sources confirm to E! News that Lawrence and Polsky do know each other, but it's not what you think. The duo have never dated. In fact, the director is romantically linked to J.Law's best friend, and they've been serious. There you have it.
E! News learned of the actress and Martin's breakup in late October, after barely four months of dating. However, a source had told us at the time of the split that the pair, who began seeing each other in late June, parted ways amicably.
"It wasn't dramatic," the insider told E! News of the pair's decision to pull the plug on their short-lived romance. "Things just didn't work out," the source continued, adding that the split occured a few weeks prior to the news going public. "There are no hard feelings between them."

"I went there, they offered me a beer, and they did...whatever they were into," the 32-year-old tells the mag. "I saw a dominant with one of his two submissives. I was like, 'Come on guys, I know I'm not paying for this, but I am expecting a show.' It was an interesting evening. Then going back to my wife and newborn baby afterwards...I had a long shower before touching either of them."
Britney Spears Covers Women's Health in Neon Bikini, Shows Off Her Amazing Abs. Whoa, mama! Britney Spears covers the January-February 2015 issue of Women's Health, and the mom of two is showing off her famed abs in a teeny-weeny neon two-piece. (Still there? Check. More toned than ever? Double check.) This isn't the 33-year-old's first body-baring magazine cover, of course: Just last year, Brit fronted the June issue of Shape in a strappy white bikini. In Women's Health, Spears opens up about her diet habits, daily fitness routine (personal diary included) and what motivates her to stay fit. "After I had Jayden, it was real easy for me to get back in shape," she revealed. "But five years later, I started noticing changes in my body. My hips are a little bit wider because I've had kids. So it was crucial for me to be continuous with my exercise."
Former "Scary Spice" Mel B has walked out on her husband of seven years, Stephen Belafonte, amid fervent internet rumors of domestic abuse, the Sun Newspaper reports. Rumors started spreading online on Sunday, Dec. 14, when Mel appeared on the UK's X Factor finale show, having missed the semi-finals the night before due to an unspecified illness. When the feisty northerner appeared on the show without her wedding ring and sporting what looked like bruises on her face and arms, worried fans began speculating about the "real" cause of her absence. As Us Weekly previously reported, for his part, Belafonte responded to comments made on Twitter, denying allegations and calling them "disgusting" and "untrue". But according to the Sun, the former Spice Girl has now left the London home she shared with the American director, and sources have confirmed to Us that luggage and boxes were being taken away from the house on Monday, Dec. 15.
Rihanna Is Named Puma's New Creative Director, Models a Pair of Platform Sneakers! Looks like Puma is about to get the #badgalriri treatment! The brand has named Rihanna its new Creative Director, a move which was confirmed by Women's Wear Daily earlier Tuesday morning. The songstress will preside over the sportswear giant's women's training line in what is described as a "multi-year partnership." As for a specific motive behind the choice: With a global pop star at the helm, the brand has the potential to gain a wider global audience and make competition more stiff with rivals Adidas and Nike. RiRi, meanwhile, jetted to Herzogenaurach, Germany, on Dec. 15 to visit Puma's global headquarters (and also hold her first meeting as HBIC with the creative team). Tuesday morning, she posted a photo to Instagram in a pair of platform "Basket" kicks. Her other attire was a high-low mix of street style chic, of course: sweats, a fur-trimmed hoodie and ladylike pearls. "Signing Rihanna is a fantastic step for Puma," Puma's chief executive officer Bjørn Gulden told WWD of the new partnership. "Her global profile, her charisma and individuality, her ambition -- all these things make her a perfect ambassador for our brand. The singer will create new styles for the brand's portfolio, as well as serve as an advisory eye for Puma's existing products. And it seems that Rihanna's influence doesn't only extend to the style realm: On Dec. 11, she threw her inaugural Diamond Ball in Beverly Hills-a star-studded event that benefitted The Clara Lionel Foundation, which she launched in 2012. Hollywood heavy-hitters including Brad Pit (who lightly roasted RiRi before she took to the state to perform), Jimmy Kimmel (the host for the evening), Salma Hayek, Ellen Pompeo and Kim Kardashian attend the event.

RADAR Online claims Sony's hackers posted an alleged Email from Alex Trebek threatening to quit Jeopardy. It read: “If I’m making mistakes and saying things you don’t like, maybe it’s time for me to move on. It’s not a threat, but I want to let you know how I’m feeling. If you all think I should retape the opening, I will. But I want to say that for 30 years I’ve defended our show against attacks inside and out. But it doesn’t seem to operate both ways. When I’m vilified, corporate (and certainly legal) always seems to say ‘don’t say anything and it’ll blow over,’ and I’m not feeling support from the producers, and that disappoints the s—t out of me.”
JLo tells Self magazine that she likes dating younger men. ''All the old clichés about women need to be undone. Enough already. We're in the other position now.

We can date younger guys ... it's no big deal.''

Contact Music claims Kanye West has spent $90,000 on Christmas presents for North West. A source tells Heat magazine: ''He went totally off and bought her a diamond-encrusted tiara, so when she plays dress-up, she'll be a real princess. He's hoping she'll treasure it for all of her childhood years. It's probably worth about $75 ,000 at least. Then he also got her one of those baby cars - an exact copy of his matte-black SUV. He thinks it's the coolest thing ever, and it's cost him around $15,000. For Kim, he's got specially commissioned designer clothes, shoes, bags, and jewels, too. Well, actually he asked his stylist to do it. Kim can only gift Kanye very limited edition things. She can't walk into a store and buy him something, as Kanye will wear or own things that are unique.'
