FOR BREAKING CELEBRITY NEWS EVERY DAY
RYAN SEACREST & JULIANNE HOUGH
YES, THEY’RE ON!
No dancing around it anymore! After months of quietly dating, TV and radio host Ryan Seacrest, 35, and dancer-turned-country-singer Julianne Hough, 21, are stepping out publicly. “Things have gotten more serious over the last month,” a source tells Scoop of the couple, who knew each other professionally before they were first linked in March. “She is totally his type,” the source says of Hough, who costars in the upcoming film Burlesque and returns to Dancing with the Stars this fall. “He thinks she’s gorgeous and just the sweetest thing.” On June 16 the pair shared an intimate dinner at the Los Angeles restaurant Red O; on June 20 they went shopping in Malibu. Despite a 14-year age gap, “they’re perfect for each other,” says the source.
JEREMY LONDON & CHRIS KLEIN
Palm Springs police say recovering addict Jeremy London, 37, was kidnapped June 10, when a man helping him change a flat tire held him at gunpoint and “forced” him to do drugs. London’s rep says the “shaken” actor is helping with the investigation. Says London’s twin, Jason: “I’m glad my brother is okay, but I have serious questions about what transpired. His health is our No. 1 concern.”
After his June 16 arrest on suspicion of drunk driving-his second DUI incident in six years-Chris Klein, 31, “was forced to take a clear look at a problem,” his rep tells PEOPLE. The American Pie actor has since checked into a 30-day addiction program. “He cannot beat this disease alone.”
MILEY: ‘GROWING UP’
Hannah who? When a scantily clad Miley Cyrus charged the stage at Canada’s MuchMusic Video Awards on June 20, the Can’t Be Tamed singer proved she’s ready to divorce her Disney image. “Miley’s at that age where she’s experimenting,” says a family friend. “This is all a part of her growing up and crossing over.” Along with wearing racy outfits, Cyrus, 17, trimmed and highlighted her hair for a “more mature” look, says Vickie Vidov of Gemini 14 Salon, where Cyrus spent nine hours for her transformation. “She’s becoming a woman.”
Taking the pulse of celebrity love lives
ORLANDO BLOOM & MIRANDA KERR
After nearly three years of dating (and plenty of false engagement rumors!), actor Orlando Bloom, 33, and model Miranda Kerr, 27, are engaged. Says her rep: “It is a very exciting time for them.”
ALEXA RAY JOEL & CASS DILLON
Earlier this year Alexa Ray Joel told Scoop, “Dating can be awkward. I prefer to meet someone through work or socially.” Good call: Joel, 24, recently began dating her guitar player Cass Dillon, 24; they met while recording her new album.
DID GAGA STRIKE OUT?
After flipping the bird at a June 10 New York Mets game (“I’m just a Bronx-cheer kind of girl,” she tweeted, referencing the rival Yankees), Lady Gaga, 24, threw a changeup a week later to root for the Yankees in a sizzling interpretation of the famous striped jersey. But was her team spirit too sexy?
YES, WHO WEARS THAT TO A BALLPARK?
NO, I LOVE HER GETUPS!

IS JESSE FOLLOWING SANDRA?
After weeks of speculation, Jesse James confirmed he’s relocating this summer to Austin, Texas, where he owns a custom-car shop, so his kids, Sunny, 6, Jesse Jr., 12, and Chandler, 15, can be closer to Sandra Bullock, who has a home there. “He has a need to be in Texas, it’s a permanent move,” said his lawyer John Schilling, who wouldn’t comment if the couple were attempting a reconciliation.
MARY AND FRIENDS
It was a special night for Mary J. Blige and her cause at An Evening at Cipriani June 17. Good friends Taraji P. Henson, Queen Latifah and designer Donna Karan came out to support Blige’s Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now, a charity the R&B singer and music-marketing mogul Steve Stoute started to empower women. Crooners Robin Thicke and Jazmine Sullivan performed, and Blige capped off the night by bringing onstage-to loud cheers from the crowd-25 girls involved with the cause who are being given scholarships to attend college this year.
