JAKE & TAYLOR HEATING UP THEIR COZY WEEKEND
Just a week after Taylor Swift, 20, and Jake Gyllenhaal, 29, spent time with pals in N.Y.C., they took their relationship to California, vacationing together at the luxe Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur.

TEEN STAR DEMI LOVATO SEEKING HELP
Demi Lovato‘s decision to enter a treatment facility for “emotional and physical issues” came as a shock to her fans, but it was greeted with relief by those close to the 18-year-old singer, who say she has struggled for years with cutting (a form of self-harm) and eating disorders. “She has a long history of battling these issues,” says a source close to the Disney Channel star. More recently, adds another insider, “she hasn’t had that same kind of love for life that she at one point had.” The singer abruptly left the Jonas Brothers’ world tour in Peru at the end of October; “the catalyst was a fight between Demi and a dancer on the tour,” says the source close to her. “Demi is taking control by getting help.”
