Seriously? Just a couple hours after Justin Timberlake was swatted, LAPD was called to Selena’s home in what appears to be another swatting prank!
Selena Gomez is the latest victim of a swatting prank scheme that is running rampant in Hollywood! On April 5, police responded to a call reporting that there was an altercation between Selena’s parents at her LA home, TMZ reports.
An unidentified caller reported to the police that Selena’s dad shot and killed her mother. The swatter added that her father had a large collection of 20 weapons, and planned to burn down the house.
Sources tell TMZ that the LAPD is having a very difficult time catching the group that has been carrying out these pranks throughout Los Angeles.
Urban Dictionary defines swatting as "a goal achieved by hacking where the hacker tricks 911 systems into deploying SWAT to an unsuspecting victim's home under false pretenses."
Justin Bieber: Another Swatting Victim
Selena is just one of many celebrities who have recently been the target of a swatting prank, including her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber!
On October 9, police were called to Justin’s home in Los Angeles when a caller claimed a person was waving a gun outside of Justin’s house. LAPD immediately responded, bringing helicopters and police cars. When police arrived, Justin’s security let them search the house, but they didn’t find anything. At the time of the call, Justin was at a concert in Tacoma, Washington for his Believe tour.
Other recent celeb swatting prank victims include Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Kim Kardashian, and Miley Cyrus.
The Kardashian siblings were outraged when their stepmom sold excerpts from their late father’s alleged diary to the media. Now, the Kardashians are taking action by taking her to court!
Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, and Rob Kardashian have decided to take legal action against Ellen Pearson, who was married to their father Robert Kardashian, TMZ reports. The Kardashian kids claim they inherited a diary belonging to their father, and Ellen has been illegally selling personal details from the diary to the tabloids.
The Kardashians are demanding the diary and family albums be returned to them. They believe the diary belongs to their family, and that their stepmom is infringing on their copyright.
What Ellen Claims The Diary Says About The Kardashians
The alleged excerpts from the diary claim Kris Jenner was an abusive mother, and abandoned her children in the wake of her affair with Todd Waterman.
Ellen told In Touch, "These are authentic handwritten journals I have shared, that my late husband Robert Kardashian so carefully wrote during 1989 and 1990 at a most trying and touching time of his life. They are my personal possession and left them to me on his passing."
When the details about the alleged diary were released, Khloe immediately fought back on Twitter against the false accusations.
“10yrs after my fathers passing&now that she has filed for bankruptcy… NOW she sells FALSE stories. Hope that money buys you water in hell,” Khloe wrote. “You should be hiding in shame for all of the lies you sell to tabloids!!”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should the Kardashians sue Ellen?
Ray J slammed both Kim and Kanye in his new single ‘I Hit It First,’ which is about his infamous sex tape with Kim! Ray J’s single is a disgusting attempt to try to salvage his fame. Do you agree?
On April 5, Ray J announced his new single “I Hit It First,” which is obviously about Kim Kardashian and their sex tape. He even used a blurred picture of Kim in a bikini for the cover art! In the song, Ray J refers to their sex tape by saying, "Hit it from north/Brought her head down south/Now that I'm finished/She's on to Mr. West." I think Ray J’s single is disrespectful and disgusting — find out why!
Ray J’s Single Is A Desperate Attempt For Fame
While Ray J has been a somewhat successful artist, his main claim to fame was his relationship with Kim and their sex tape. Now that Ray J has seen Kim’s fame grow since the release of the tape, he’s obviously jealous. Ray J is making himself look very desperate by resorting to bringing up his controversial past with Kim in order to sell a few singles. “I Hit It First” is a failed attempt to capitalize off of the only fame he’s had.
Ray J Is Immature For Writing The Song
The title of the single is “I Hit It First,” insinuating that he was the first person to sleep with Kim before she became famous. The claim itself is extremely juvenile. He’s treating Kim like she’s a piece of meat or a prize, rather than a person. It just seems like a lame attempt for Ray J to try to one-up Kanye West.
Ray J Is Disrespecting His Relationship With Kim
Although the couple have been broken up for six years, they were once in a long-term, committed relationship for five years. No matter what Ray J’s feelings are about Kim now, it is rude and disrespectful to the relationship they had to release this single. At one point, Ray J and Kim were very much in love, and he needs to respect the relationship they once had.
HollywoodLifers, are YOU Team Ray J or Team Kim? Vote below!
The former Nickelodeon star confesses to having an eating disorder on Twitter. Is she reaching out for help?
Amanda Bynes has been struggling for a while now. She’s run into trouble with the law and undergone some questionable makeovers over the past year. Now, she is confessing to a major problem on Twitter. Poor Amanda can’t catch a break.
Amanda Bynes’ Eating Disorder Confession On Twitter
Amanda took to Twitter, as most celebs do, to reveal something very personal. The actress tweeted on April 4, “I have an eating disorder so I have a hard time staying thin.” Could this tweet be a cry for help? Is she reaching out to her fans and family? It’s hard to say, considering her wild Twitter history.
The What I Like About You star has a history of over-sharing on Twitter. She tweeted about her attraction to Drake a few times, one of which was completely crude. She tweeted, "I want @drake to murder my vagina.” Let’s just say there are more appropriate ways to tell someone you like them.
Amanda’s Family Wants Her To Move Back Home
A source told E! that Amanda’s family is reportedly concerned about her well-being and are afraid that her bizarre behavior is actually a cry for help. They want her to leave New York City and move back to Los Angeles so they can keep a closer eye on her and help her through her troubles. Her announcement of an eating disorder may give her family the extra push to step in and help their struggling daughter.
We sincerely hope Amanda gets well. Do you think Amanda’s tweet is a cry for help, HollywoodLifers?
First Rihanna, now JT! Police were been called to Justin’s Hollywood Hills home in what appears to be another swatting prank!
Poor Justin Timberlake! The singer is the latest victim in a string of swatting pranks that have been sweeping through Hollywood.
Police were called to JT’s Hollywood Hills home after an unidentified caller reported that four men broke into the house and fired two shots, TMZ reports. The caller also added that the intruders left a box with red blinking lights in the singer’s home. LAPD is currently on the way to Justin’s house.
Defined by Urban Dictionary, swatting is "a goal achieved by hacking where the hacker tricks 911 systems into deploying SWAT to an unsuspecting victim's home under false pretenses."
Other Swatting Prank Victims: Rihanna, Chris Brown & More
Justin isn’t the only celeb to have a swatting prank pulled on him this week, Rihanna also had the cops called to her house on April 4. Somebody made a 911 call claiming that two men had entered Rihanna’s Pacific Palisades home, and that someone had been shot, TMZ reported. When LAPD arrived on the scene, they confirmed that the call was just another swatting prank.
On January 22, a 911 call was made claiming there was a domestic incident at Chris Brown‘s Hollywood home. When police arrived at Chris’ home and discovered Chris wasn’t even there, they realized the call was a joke.
Kim Kardashianand her family were also victims of swatting on January 18. Cops arrived at Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner‘s home after a shooting was reported.
"Just got a call from my mom telling me about this prank call that someone was shot in their home & 15 swat team & 3 helicopters showed up!" Kim tweeted. “These prank calls are NOT funny! People can get arrested for this! I hope they find out who is behind this. Its dangerous & not a joke!”
A friend of Kristen’s tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “Kristen is the one who has been pushing Rob to pursue his passion for music. She knows how much joy making and playing music brings to Rob.”
“[Kristen] is super supportive of him and his dreams, and she’s constantly boosting his confidence when it comes to taking risks in his music career, whether it’s writing or performing. Basically, anything that involves music,” says the friend.
We still haven’t finished mourning Jeremy’s death, and according to a new report, we might not have to!
Epic news: A very familiar pair of arms are returning to Mystic Falls… and soon! HollywoodLife.com‘s sister site TVLine is reporting that Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) — who was killed by Silas, then cremated by Elena (Nina Dobrev) as part of the Great Gilbert House Fire of 2013 — will be seen again this season on The Vampire Diaries. But because this is TVD we’re talking about, the details of his return are really anybody’s guess.
Jeremy Returning To ‘The Vampire Diaries’ — But How?
Process of elimination leads me to believe there are three possible ways we’ll see Jeremy on the show this season:
1. He could be seen in a flashback, like his parents were on the third season finale.
2. He could be the next persona Silas takes on in his never-ending quest to mess with everyone’s mind.
3. Or Bonnie (Kat Graham) could be successful — for once — in her attempt to tear down the wall between the worlds of the dead and the living.
Which Other Dead Characters Will Return In Season 4?
Just when you thought Jeremy returning was the best news you’ve heard all day, just wait — it gets better! TVLine also reports that several other deceased characters will be seen this season, which leads me to believe that Bonnie’s plan will actually work.
But the question is: Which of Mystic Falls’ finest fallen will come back? Alaric (Matt Davis)? Aunt Jenna (Sara Canning)?
Come to think of it, David Anders — aka Elena’s real dad — did tweet about being back in Atlanta on April 5! He may be filming USA’s Necessary Roughness, but there’s no reason he couldn’t pop by The Vampire Diaries‘ set too, right?
Chris and Karrueche are on great terms post-split, and now that their romantic relationship is over, Breezy is supporting her new reported relationship with NBA star John Wall. Read on for all the exclusive details!
Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran are showing everyone that exes can be the best of friends. Karrueche is rumored to be in a relationship with NBA star John Wall and while that has yet to be 100-percent confirmed, Chris still supports Karrueche and is “happy” for her if she’s found new love!
Chris Is Happy Karrueche Found New Love
“Chris wishes Karrueche all the best,” a source connected to the 23-year-old rapper tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “Who she f***s around with isn’t really any of the [his] business. He isn’t hating on her for moving on and finding someone she wants to be with and love. Everybody deserves to be happy — no doubt — even Karrueche and trust me, he wants her to be happy.”
While it’s unclear if Karrueche is in fact shacking up with the Washington Wizards’ point guard, our source says Chris is cool with Karrueche’s decisions. But don’t expect Chris to try to pry info out of Karrueche.
Why Chris Won’t Press Karrueche For The 411 On Her New Relationship
“He don’t know who she’s dating, that isn’t his business,” the source says. “If Karrueche wants to tell him, that would be on her. He isn’t about to go fishing for it or no s*** like that.”
Chris’ Friends Say He’s Focusing On Is His Music & Rihanna
In the end, Chris is putting all his energy and focus on his music and his rekindled relationship with Rihanna, 25, while maintaining a healthy friendship with Karrueche.
“He got mad love for Kae and he supports her no matter what,” the source adds. “That’s his girl, not like that, but he got mad love for her and supports her choices.”
Sound off, HollywoodLifers. Do you think Chris and Karrueche will remain good friends?
The fashionable Duchess took the chic route once again in a bright red coat when she was out attending royal engagements on April 5 in Barrow-in-Furness, United Kingdom! Is her coat bold or a bit too boring?
Mom-to-be Kate Middleton, 31, had a couple of royal errands to run on April 5, including a visit to the Astute-class Submarine Building at BAE Systems, but her royal duties weren’t stopping her from tending to her duties as a maternity-wear fashionista!
Kate Middleton’s Pregnant Style Is Fab
The Duchess of Cambridge wore an Armani long, red coat with a wide neck over a black dress, black rights and black boots! Looks like Kate was going for the pop-of-color style. Did she get it right or was it a bit of a letdown?
Pregnant Kate visited BAE Systems with her husband Prince WIlliam, 30, to meet with the staff of HMS Artful, the Royal Navy’s third nuclear-powered fleet submarine. She was dressed for the cold outing with her sleek buttoned-up coat that covered her growing baby bump perfectly! With the royal baby due in July, her pregnancy is really starting to show! Mommy instincts are always on high-alert for Kate, as she always dresses to keep both her and the baby warm, even wearing her Strathearn tartan scarf earlier in the day.
Duchess Kate Is A People-Pleaser
Not only was the baby warm and happy on this little outing, but the Duchess has a knack for making other people quite happy, as well. Just as most people would be, managing director John Hudson was “absolutely delighted that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge” were to visit the BAE Systems site.
“This is an opportunity for us to showcase the remarkable skills and capabilities of our employees, and the outstanding nuclear submarines we design and build for the Royal Navy,” John said.
What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Is Kate’s pregnancy look to die for or should that coat be killed? Let us know in the comments!
Spoiler alert! The ending of the third season of ‘The Walking Dead’ could have been even more shocking, as star Dallas Roberts reveals that Milton Mamet nearly died in a very different way.
Fans of The Walking Dead were shocked and stunned to see scientist Milton Mamet (Dallas Roberts) become a “walker” in the third season finale. In a new interview, the actor reveals the original death planned for Milton, and how Andrea (Laurie Holden) may have faced a much different fate.
Milton’s Alternate Death On ‘The Walking Dead’ Season Finale
“Originally, the beating scene that started the episode wasn’t there,” Dallas explained to Entertainment Weekly. “Originally, I showed up and was led into the room where Andrea was and I took the tools out – the instruments of torture that were laid on the table – and then he shot me in the stomach, completely unexpectedly. And then I was left to bleed out in the same idea basically – you’re going to kill her now.”
“There was a lot more of Milton trying to open the door and him trying to free her from the chains,” continued Dallas. “And then there was a section where he was going to wrap the chain around the neck and try to choke her to death before he turned so she wouldn’t have to deal with Walker Milton, or Biter Milton, as it were.”
“And then at the end of that, it was just Tyreese and someone else who found her. Rick and Daryl and Michonne weren’t there. So it was essentially the same idea, except you saw me taking chunks out of Laurie Holden in that version. And then they called us back a few months later to reshoot it and made all those changes.”
HollywoodLife.com caught up with The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus, and he gave us some EXCLUSIVE scoop on what's to come for season four!
"I think [the governor's] evolution of a bad guy is not dead yet. To reach the comic book status, like in the comic book, the guy is so ferocious, he's on the precipice of becoming that guy. So the last episode wasn't about the war, it was about who is becoming what in that world. Carl, what he has become, Rick what he has become, what Daryl has become.That's the intro into season 4."
Norman also revealed the governor isn't the only character going down a dark path, "[Carl's] dark right now. I think he's going to get much darker. I think all of us are real dark right now."
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Would you like to have seen Milton’s alternate death?

It looks like the reality star is still not totally embracing her new pregnant body, because she is too busy missing her old one! Kim posted an old picture of herself in a sexy black bikini to her Instagram saying she misses her old figure.
Kim’s Skinny Instagram Pics: Loves Sharing Old Photos
This isn’t the first time the expecting mother used a “flashback” to celebrate her former body. She tweeted a picture for “throwback Thursday” of her looking slim in a black workout outfit from when she left a dance rehearsal from her 2008 appearance on Dancing with the Stars:
#tbt another dancing throwback! Me leaving dance rehearsals #IWasSoooooSkinny,”
She also shared another photo from her time on Dancing with the Stars, this time wearing the sexy cutout dance outfit she wore on stage.
In fact, Kim has been engaging in the Twitter “Throw Back Thursday” and “Flashback Friday” pretty much every week since she’s been pregnant, sharing mostly pictures of her in-shape figure.
