HOLLYWOOD GOSSIP

Kate Hudson showcased her signature smile while getting cozy withNick Jonas Wednesday night.

The 36-year-old actress and 23-year-old pop singer, who sparked romance rumors last fall, were spotted having dinner at the Italian restaurant Pace in Los Angeles. A source told E! News exclusively that while the two did not display major PDA, "there was a light kiss exchanged."

And then...whoops?

"Kate touched Nick's leg at a point during dinner," the source said.

"There were laughs throughout the dinner and Kate had a huge smile on her face," the source added. "Nick was a gentleman. You could tell they like each other."

The source also told E! News Hudson and Jonas were "lovely to the waiters" and other workers at the restaurant and left a "generous" tip.

A second source said they spent several hours dining on the patio and left together in the same car.

The two have never confirmed a relationship. They first sparked romance rumors last September, when they were spotted together in Florida. They have since been seen hanging out sporadically. They were seen together last weekend in San Francisco at a Super Bowl 50 party.

"They were talking, but not overly flirty," a source told E! News at the time. "They are not a couple."

Both Hudson and Jonas had remained coy when asked about each other in separate interviews in October.

"Kate's incredible," the singer told Complex magazine recently. "We had an unbelievable connection as two humans who just admire things about each other, and see something in each other that's beautiful. Out of my best effort to respect her and her privacy, I'm not going to say if we had sex or not. But we did have a beautiful connection. Even now I have so much admiration and respect. She's amazing."

Jonas also said he is "very much single," adding, "But I'm trying to be as open to people who can inspire me in some way."

 

 

Lamar Odom made his first public appearance since his near-fatal drug overdose, attending Kanye West's Yeezy Season 3 show on Thursday, but he certainly wasn't alone.

In fact, Lamar walked side-by-side with Kanye—who personally invited him to attend the event—while entering the show, revealing the huge amount of supportKhloe Kardashian's family continues to show him during his recovery.

The former Lakers player looked healthy and happy as walked into Madison Square garden, a huge feat considering this is the first time he has attended a public event after his hospitalization.

E! News learned the former NBA player boarded a private jet with Khloe—to whomhe is still married—on a red-eye flight to New York City Wednesday night.

A source tells us exclusively, "Lamar is very nervous to be making his first public appearance. He spoke to Kim [Kardashian] and Kanye about their thoughts about him attending the Kanye show before, but it was Khloe's ultimate decision."

The insider adds, "Kanye personally invited him, but he wouldn't make this huge appearance without the support and green light from Khloe...[She] is making all the calls on what Lamar is doing and who he speaks to this trip and won't be leaving his side."

In fact, the source says they've gotten so close, people near the former couple believe they are going to get back together.

Meanwhile, Lamar was joined by the entire Kardashian-Jenner clan, including: Kim, Kourtney KardashianKris JennerCaitlyn JennerKendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner, who were all wearing white.

"The whole family is here supporting him today," our source explained of his huge appearance.

Lamar was spotted sitting between Kendall and Khloe during the show, dancing with them as Kanye played his new album.

 

 

The man is friggin' unstoppable. Yesterday we told you about the wildest quotesKanye West had ever said about money. Today my friends, is a new damn day, meaning we've got new inspirational quotes for your viewing pleasure. We have to admit, some of these are pretty genuine and sentimental, which is not often the case for many Yeezy statements. The jaw-dropper, we think, are his plans for a new video game dedicated to his mother, the late Donda West. See the above photo for proof. You might be wondering what he will think up next, but some of these quotes more than hint at his plans for future endeavors. Read on and enjoy! 

1. Kanye on what he appreciates: 

"I really appreciate y'all coming to support this event, support the shoes when they come out, supporting the albums, supporting the frame of mind-"

 Aww. We support you Kanye! Also, if we were rich and cool enough we would be wearing your clothes too, we swear. 

2. Kanye on being grateful: 

"I want to thank Vanessa Beecroft for putting together this wonderful, wonderful performance, I want to thank Adidas for paying for this and supporting me, what did y'all say-what you say- what you say- what you say- what you say- what you say- yall ain't saying that loud enough"

Namaslay, BB. Gratitude always brings more abundance. 

3. On his future in fashion: 

"But my dream, I told Anna this backstage, just for at least a couple of years, to be the creative director of Hermès, would be a dream of mine."

"I just want to bring as much beauty to the world as possible. I'm only 38 years old."

Stop. We could so see this Hermès thing happening, and we're into it. 

 

 

As expected, Taylor Swift 's squad is closing ranks.

Kanye West premiered his seventh studio album, The Life of Pablo, today at Madison Square Garden during his Yeezy Season 3 show—and a couple of lines in particular are not going over well.

"For all my Southside n--gas who will know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why, I made that bitch famous / God damn / I made that bitch famous," he raps misguidedly on "Famous," the fourth and so far most incendiary track on TLOP.

"Getting a head start on some spring cleaning. Here we go again," Swift's younger brother, Austincaptioned a video on Instagram in which he's pointedly throwing a pair of Yeezy sneakers in the trash, putting Kanye on notice.

Here we go again, indeed.

Jaime King, mother of Taylor's godson, apparently had a post up about Yeezy Season 3, and she has since taken it down, according to Tumblr's eagle eye, and she replaced it with the tweet, "I'm so sad right now & disappointed right now. I stand by my sister. Always."

A Tumblr user also spied Selena Gomez liking Austin Swift's Instagram post, as well as Martha Hunt liking and agreeing, "Yesssssss."

Meanwhile, Taylor's dear bestie Karlie Kloss was at the Yeezy show when the album first played. Though she later Instagrammed about not wanting to take her Yeezys off, but one astute Twitter user noted, "mood: how karlie visibly stops bopping after the taylor lyric."Another supermodel pal who stopped bopping, according to social media? Gigi Hadid.

Sure enough, apparently in response to fans wondering where the solidarity was, Gigi tweeted this evening, "My attendance somewhere does not mean I agree with everything being said in the music playing there. My friends know of my loyalty."

 

 

Today may not mark an official holiday, but it might as well be: it's Jennifer Aniston's birthday!

The actress turns 47 today, and in order to properly ring in the special occasion, she and hubby Justin Theroux shared a little pre-birthday date night in New York City on Wednesday.

E! News got the exclusive photos of the couple hitting up the Broadway showHamilton at Richard Rodgers Theater. The Friends alum is clearly a big fan of the play as it was her second time seeing it.

The birthday beauty looked amazing in a black leather mini skirt, which she rocked with a black sweater and a black faux fur coat. She accessorized the ensemble with a chic choker and a pair of knee-high suede, wedged boots.

Theroux also looked fashionable, donning a green coat with a black turtleneck and a coordinating scarf.

Meanwhile, the hunky actor is busy with more than just helping ring in his wife's 47th. He caught up with E! News at the New York City premiere of Zoolander 2 and dished on their special Valentine's Day plans, too!

"You gotta take care of each other on Valentine's Day, every day," he revealed. "But we've actually scratched our dinner plans because I'm tired so we're probably just going to put on pajamas and catch up on some Netflix."

 

 

No one in music reps Toronto more than Drake and now the hip-hop star is going to berewarded for his civic engagement with a key to the city. 

Toronto's mayor John Tory announced the news Thursday (Feb. 11) on Twitter, penning a sort of essay on the 140-character platform. In it, he said, "Toronto must tell its stories. We must celebrate our talent & harness it for change. This isn’t swagger. It is key."

Drake's not the only one seeing some praise from local leaders in his hometown. This weekend Kendrick Lamar will be receiving a key to the city of Compton

Kanye West mocked Ray J during his album release concert Thursday -- about both of them having sex with Kim Kardashian -- but we've learned Kanye called Ray ahead of time to squash any beef.

In one of the tracks, Kanye rapped, "Me and Ray J would probably be friends if we wasn't in love with the same bitch ... you might have hit it first, but I'm rich, though."

The kinder, gentler Kanye must have realized Ray could have taken it badly and launched an attack, so Kim's hubby launched his preemptive strike.

We're told Kanye ran into Brandy and they talked face-to-face, he asked her to tell her brother he meant no harm or disrespect by the lyrics ... he said is was pure fun and he was not talking trash about Ray J's bank account.

In addition, Kanye's rep contacted Ray J's manager, David Weintraub, to reaffirm the message.

As for how Ray J received it, we're told he's cool with both Kanye and Kim and appreciates Kanye reaching out.  

Our Ray J sources say he also wants to make something very clear ... he's also very rich and currently has 4 TV shows on the air. 

 

When Fetty Wap reps his crew, he reps 'em hard ... as in a brand new $70,000 diamond and gold chain hard.

We found out Fetty commissioned Elliot Avianne from Avianne & Co. jewelers in NYC to make a custom RGF Island emblazoned medallion. It's held together by 14 carat gold Cuban links blanketed with 35 carats of diamonds!

Fetty picked up the piece this week and owner Joe Avianne says the "RGF Island" is a reference to the rapper's single from his self titled debut album and his label. 

If you ain't beefin' bout the money, then what's the problem? 

 

Kanye West personally called Taylor Swift late last month to tell her about a lyric in his song ... "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex, I made that bitch famous."

Sources directly connected with Swift tell TMZ Kanye called her to explain it was a joke and wanted to make sure she wouldn't be upset.  We're told Swift said she got the joke and gave him the thumbs up to release the song with the lyric.

We're told Kanye and Taylor have been cool with each other since shortly after the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, when he jacked her moment on stage.  The 2 speak on the phone from time to time and are on friendly terms.

Kanye's getting blasted by Swift fans who think he's taking a shot at her.  Not the case.

 

Caitlyn Jenner has just filed legal docs to hold the driver of the Prius in the fatal PCH crash at least partially responsible for the accident.

Caitlyn has filed a cross-complaint against Jessica Steindorff, the Prius driver, who was in front of Caitlyn at the time of the February crash. TMZ broke the story ... Caitlyn's SUV crashed into the Lexus, driven by Kim Howe, then continued on to strike the Prius. The Lexus careened into oncoming traffic and was struck by a Hummer, killing Howe.

Caitlyn is being sued by the driver and passengers of the Hummer, but in the new legal docs she says if she's on the hook she wants Steindorff to absorb at least partial responsibility.

Our sources say the basis for the alleged negligence on Steindorff's part is that she was sitting at the light after it turned green because she had been inattentive.  

According to Jessica's attorney, Robert Simon, "It's unfortunate that she continues to not take responsibility for a crash she clearly caused."

Hollywoodlife.com claims Calvin Harris is planning to spoil Taylor Swift on Valentine's Day. A source tells the site: “Calvin is not going to change how he feel or treats Taylor just because it is Valentine’s Day.

She is going to have a big weekend with the Grammy Awards so he is looking to party with her, have a nice dinner with her and then spend as much quality alone time with her as possible. He loves her and wants to continue the path the relationship is going on because in his mind it is perfection.''

We just found the right person. It's corny, but she's my soul mate. She's my everything to me and I don't know what I'd do without her."
