jackie o’s big news!

Radio queen Jackie ‘O’ Henderson has had some big changes in her life. After announcing her split from husband Lee in 2018, the 45-year-old moved out of their shared $6.7 million home in Sydney’s Vaucluse and adjusted to life as a single mother to the couple’s 9-year-old daughter, Kitty. And now it seems the KIIS FM star has found a new bachelorette pad to kickstart her single life in. The blonde beauty was spotted leaving a home inspection before snapping up the $11 million pad in Sydney’s Woollahra. Jackie O recently admitted on-air she has avoided going out and meeting men since her high-profile divorce. “I haven’t gone out a lot to be honest since I’ve been single,” Jackie told co-host Kyle Sandilands. But the radio veteran also confessed she has been enjoying the newfound…

Brad Pitt’s rekindled relationship with son Maddox has resulted in the 18-year-old’s dreams coming true.

Now the pair have patched things up – after mum Angelina was court-ordered to stop alienating her children’s father – sources say Brad and Maddox have become so close they’re now creative partners on Battling Boy, based on a sci-fi comic Maddox was obsessed with as a kid. “Brad bought the movie rights as a gift to Maddox when he was 8 years old, but had to shelve the project for more money-making movies after they bought the Miraval estate,” says an insider. “But now he’s commissioned a team of scriptwriters and is…

the truth about nicole and lenny

Nicole Kidman is preparing for the worst after her former fiancé Lenny Kravitz revealed plans to publish a ‘kiss and tell’ memoir. Friends say the actress is “panicking” over hubby Keith Urban’s reaction and is convinced it could be enough to make him walk out the door. “Nicole broke Lenny’s heart – she was the reason he never remarried,” says an insider. “She was his ‘one big love’ and has never gotten over her. Knowing that he’s going to be spilling every juicy detail on what was an incredibly sensual and sexual relationship has her convinced her marriage might not survive. It might tip Keith over the edge. Already he goes nuts over her getting close to her co-stars – from Colin Firth to Alex Skarsgård. She’s worried instead of the…

suri changes her name

Katie Homes has been looking to help her daughter Suri, 14, change her last name from Cruise to Holmes. Katie and Tom’s divorce settlement stipulated that Suri can’t change her surname until she is 21, but it hasn’t been an issue until recently. Tom is all but estranged from Suri, who is reportedly determined to change her name. An insider explains: “Katie’s dad is looking at what can be done, but it’ll be like poking a bear. It’s been since Suri was 12 that she’s wanted this – mostly out as a gesture to her mum. They can’t ignore this forever.” Could this mean Katie and Suri are preparing for a new man in their lives? Katie, 41, recently posted an Instagram photo wearing what looked like a wedding dress, sparking speculation she…

george on dad duty!

In a rare public outing and without wife Amal, George Clooney has been spotted spending some one-on-one time with his son, Alexander. The 59-year-old took his 3-year-old to visit an ophthalmologist near his home in Los Angeles, wearing a bandana as a face mask while carrying his son. George was pictured without human rights lawyer Amal, 42, and their daughter Ella, 3, adding fuel to the speculation the pair are experiencing troubles in their marriage.

thandie reveals: ‘i was terrified of tom!’

In a new interview, Thandie Newton has revealed just what it was like working with Tom Cruise on the set of their box-office smash, Mission: Impossible – and given that she never signed on for any sequels, it’s fairly obvious that her experience wasn’t great. “I was so scared of Tom,” she tells Vulture magazine. “He was a very dominant individual. He tries super hard to be a nice person. But the pressure … He takes on a lot, and I think he has this sense that only he can do everything as best as it can be done.” Thandie, 47, also revealed Tom gave cast members Scientology-themed Christmas gifts. “Like a book with the greatest hits of Scientology, a bit like a Bible. I was curious, because it’s like, ‘Wow, if it’s going to…
