19 Most Bitter Breakups in Hollywood History

Some breakups are pretty amicable and the two parties remain friends.

But others? Well.... others are less than amicable.

Click through the following photos and stories to remember the splits that resulted in anger, bitterness and many mean social media posts:

1. Taylor Swift & Calvin Harris

Their breakup was a shocker and it obviously hurt Calvin just how quickly she moved on from him with Tom Hiddleston.

2. Johnny Depp & Amber Heard

This relationship came to a conclusion when Johnny allegedly struck Amber with a cell phone.

3. Kailyn Lory & Javi Marroquin

You know your relationship isn't going well when there's a nickname for it. The Poison Penns was a hilarious one.

Britney Spears Totally Rejected DeMario Jackson in 2008: Watch!

Did you guys know that DeMario Jackson once met Britney Spears? He even got a hug.

If you're wondering why he doesn't lead with that fact in literally every conversation and television appearance ... the video will make that clear.

There's a little secondhand embarrassment here, but it's worth watching the video. To see how gracious Britney Spears is and always has been, but also to see just how far DeMario would go to chase a little fame. Watch the video below!

Demario jackson and britney spears 2008

Awww, remember Myspace?

(No, Myspace isn't relevant again -- but it's mentioned in this video. Though, let's be real, it was barely clinging to relevance even in 2008)

See, in a video -- believed to have been taken by a fan of Britney -- DeMario Jackson tries to get a date with Britney by sharing some information about himself.

He starts by getting her attention -- and a laugh:

"You need a black dude!"

Mind you, this is 2008 Britney.

This is after Britney's epic breakdown that fit perfectly with the archetypal hero's journey to the underworld (before rising like a phoenix, stronger than ever).

So this was when Britney's life was still in flux.

These days, of course, she's happily dating the unnecessarily handsome Sam Ashgari and focusing on being a mom while still having epic global performances because she rules the world of music.

But before she was living the life that she deserves, Britney was unlucky in love ... to say the least.

We think, though, that she's perfectly happy with how her life's worked out at this point, so we don't think that she's looking back and wondering if she should have dated DeMario Jackson.

Seeing his opening after Britney laughs, DeMario follows up by saying more.

"My mom loves you!"

Smart mom, right?

"Call me right now! I’m dead serious. My name is DeMario Jackson. I’m an up-and-coming actor."

We wonder if he had any idea where his career would go at that time.

We can't imagine that he imagined himself as being known for his role in the Bachelor Nation, you know?

"I want to be like you."

So does literally everyone, DeMario.

"I want everybody to see me on TV."

On that account, he's gotten his wish.

He also yelled out his Myspace URL, which gives us such a chuckle.

Britney didn't seem totally taken in by the verbal barrage, but being the sweetest woman on the planet, she did pose with him for a hug.

Demario

Really, though, we don't think that DeMario was really after a date.

Which is good, because he is not displaying healthy boundaries here in terms of seeking romance.

(Please, please do not go up to random strangers and try to chat them up -- don't try to date coworkers, either. Just naturally meet women in your life and let other people go about their lives)

He was putting his name out there, less for Britney's benefit and more because she's mega-famous and he knew that, through that interaction with her, he could get exposure and get noticed.

(Through Britney, all things are possible)

Of course, when DeMario Jackson talks about wanting to be famous, he can't have meant the Bachelor in Paradise pool sex scandal.

(Be careful what you wish for, folks)

Britney was more gracious than anyone has a right to expect of her.

Like, a lot of celebrities get tired after a while and can't put up with constant fan attention when they're just going shopping or living their lives.

And then, when celebs finally decline to meet someone by putting up a firm boundary, the world looks at them and calls them out for being rude to their fans.

Fame can be vicious like that.

So, brace yourselves for a speck of secondhand embarrassment as DeMario really puts himself out there for Britney, but it's a cute video.

It's amazing to see things that the internet just digs up like this:

Britney Spears Claims She Sings Live, Gets Defensive in New Interview

In today’s shocking news, pop star Britney Spears is convinced that she sings live at her concerts, and is determined to convince others of this factoid that is hotly contradicted by video footage of her concerts.

A snippet of an Israeli TV interview with Spears ahead of her upcoming concert in Tel Aviv over the Fourth of July weekend came to light on Tuesday. In it, an interviewer asked if  she sings at live concerts or relies on playback.

Spears responded:

“I’m glad you’re addressing this question, because it’s really funny. A lot of people think that I don’t sing live. I usually, because I’m dancing so much, I do have a little bit of playback, but there’s a mixture of my voice and the playback. It really pisses me off because I am busting my ass out there and singing at the same time and nobody ever really gives me credit for it, you know?”

Given the intensity of Spears’ dance routines at concerts, her reliance on playback is nothing to be ashamed of. Her adamance that she’s singing live though, despite no shortage of evidence, shows that she actually is more than a little uncomfortable. I mean, if you were the interviewer, how would you respond?

By showing her footage of herself at this concert, where, with the microphone a mile from her face, her perfect vocals still permeate throughout the stadium:

There’s also footage of Spears quite literally losing her microphone despite perfect vocals, yet again, continuing to light up the place.

My personal favorite would have to be this 15-second clip of Spears magically adapting Sia’s vocals one night at a concert:

To her credit, Spears didn’t exactly lie. She did acknowledge that “because [she’s] dancing so much, [she does] have a little bit of playback,” and even noted that this is “usually” the case.

But there’s just too much footage of Spears lip syncing and doing a poor job of hiding it for the interview to not be at least a little funny.

Britne Spears’ Instagram Being Co-opted by Russian Hackers

It turns out that Britney Spears has more uses for people than just enjoying her… um.. music. Russian hackers have been using the comments section on Instagram to send coded messages to each other. No, this isn’t something from one of those schlocky SyFy movies. It’s real.

This is where having a wide-open internet can be very detrimental. There are people out there who are trying to be as vigilant as possible, but it’s like having a beach the size of the solar system and like five lifeguards on duty. They aren’t even good-looking lifeguards like on Baywatch. There is a LOT  of suspicious activity that is going to make its way through.

When Spears posts she usually gets a torrent of comments. It’d be ridiculously simple for the hackers to put in whatever code they want in there, knowing it would be blending in with the other spam that gets posted, like “Nice pic… now check out MY page.” Then they delete it shortly thereafter, with no one the wiser.

It is kinda funny that these hackers are using Britney Spears’ Instagram page. Her sense of technology probably extends as far as pointing her camera at herself and then choosing the ‘Share’ button. Now watch us find out that she actually coded her website by hand.

What would be really hilarious is if they wound up using Ivanka Trump’s page. Then again, all they’d really have to do is talk to her daddy, anyway.

Jenna Dewan Tatum Dated Justin Timberlake After He Broke Up with Britney Spears

While having an appearance on Sunday night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Jenna Dewan Tatum cleared up a few things about her relationship with Justin Timberlake, after Lifetime’s terrible biopic on Britney Spears made things a little weird.

From The Huffington Post:

“We were, like, friends that then dated and we’re just really good friends now.”

Sounds pretty boring.

“We’re still good friends. It’s not as salacious as everyone thinks.”

If you missed out on that Lifetime biopic because you aren’t a middle-aged woman, it included Britney Spears and Justin having a pre-breakup dance-off.

Yeah.  People actually were citing that like it was real. I can’t believe Jenna Dewan Tatum even had to spell out how full of shit that is.

“Okay, so this dance-off situation is … it never happened, people!” the actress told a viewer who phoned in to ask about the rumored incident. “It was in tabloids and everyone thought that this happened. And I really wish I could say that that happened because that would be the coolest story in the world. It would be so awesome. I wish I could say that, but no, it never happened.”

Britney Spears and Sam Asghari: Secretly Married?!

It's only been six months since we first learned that Britney Spears and Sam Asghari are dating, but it seems the couple has been moving at breakneck speed since day one.

Rumors that Spears and Asghari are engaged have been circulating pretty much from the time they first got together, so perhaps it was only a matter of time before "insiders" started spreading the word that the couple has surreptitiously taken the next step.

Sam Asghari & Britney Spears Getting Close

Yes, according to OK! magazine, Britney and Sam secretly tied the knot at some point in the past few weeks.

“It might seem crazy after such a sort time, but everyone in her life says they’ve never seen her this happy,” a source tells the tabloid.

“Getting married secretly is just the sort of stunt she’d pull. Only now, she’s in a stable place emotionally.”

We think the source might be a bit confused about the meaning of the word "stunt."

If the rumors are true (huge "if"), then it's likely that Brit simply wants to make it official with the man she loves without the flurry of media scrutiny that surrounded her first two marriages.

Britney Spears & Sam Ashgari New Year's Eve Pic

Many fans forget that Brit has had not one but two weddings in the past, though in fairness, her marriage to Jason Alexander was an extremely short-lived affair that was quickly annulled.

Legally speaking, Brit is no longer under her father's thumb, so she's not required to seek his permission before getting hitched.

But insiders claim she still sought approval from the other most important men in her life:

“She would never marry Sam without asking her boys’ permission first,” says one tipster.

In fact, Sam's connection with her sons is reportedly the main thing that convinced Britney he's the one.

“He’s great with her boys, which is always her number one priority before she can get serious about someone," one source says.

Sadly, it wasn't long after OK!'s report was published that Spears' PR team came forward to set the record straight.

One rep described the rumors as "completely not true" in a statement issued to Hollywood Life moments ago.

But don't lose heart Brit and Sam 'shippers.

It seems Ms. Spears has little doubt about where her relationship with Asghari is headed:

“Brit feels certain about her future with Sam,” one anonymous friend says.

“She’s telling friends that she’s never loved a man like she loves him.”

Britney Spears Flaunts INSANE Body in Workout Pics

With so much going on in the world today, you may have missed the recent milestone anniversary of one of the defining events of our generation.

We're talking, of course, about the day that Britney Spears shaved her head.

It was ten years ago last week that Spears decided to go start sporting the Mr. Clean look, and while both Brit and her fans are able to have a laugh about it these days, at the time, it was taken as a troubling sign of things to come.

Many believed Spears was stuck in a downward spiral from which she would never recover.

Fortunately, these days we can see that the naysayers were as off-base as the pundits who predicted Donald Trump would be back back in Midtown Manhattan by now, ranting into a tack, gold-veined mirror by now.

Britney rebounded from her meltdown in epic fashion, and these days, she's enjoying the sort of career longevity and living legend status that most pop stars only dream of.

Britney has a Vegas residency that's bringing in some of the biggest bucks of her career.

She's dating Sam Ashgari, and friends say she's convinced he's "the one."

(Of course, she also thought that about Kevin Federline and a whole host of other d-bags, but the less said about that, the better.)

But the Britney achievement that's earning the most attention these days is the the fact that at 34, after having given birth to two kids, the singer appears to be in the best shape of her life.

As you can imagine based on the pics above, Britney has inspired many a #FitnessGoals comment on her recent photos.

She also offered fans a glimpse of her workout routine with this Instagram video:

Now, it's easy to look at celebs who are in flawless shape and think, Hey, it's their job to stay in shape! If I could afford a trainer, nutritionist, personal assistant, etc., I would have six-pack abs, too!

We don't want to rain on your parade (especially since we use those excuses ourselves on a daily basis) but Brit recently opened up about her fitness regimen, and it seems it's not particularly time-consuming:

“I like my workouts to be effective in a short amount of time,” she told People magazine.

“I start with 20 minutes of intense cardio — usually running — move on to light free weights; body-weight exercises such as push-ups, squats and situps; then finish it off with a stretch."

So maybe it's genetic?

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that her job involves running around on a hot stage while rocking 40 pounds of sequins?

We may never know for sure.

For now, we're just happy to have Britney looking healthy and sporting a full head of hair.

Britney Spears Dead? Hoax Alleges Icon’s Demise, Pop Star Tweets Selfies

As if 2016 couldn't get any worse, a high-profile cyber attacker hijacked Sony's music page and declared Britney Spears dead yesterday.

Fortunately, it was a hoax. Britney is a-o-k.

Britney Spears Glowing at Music Choice

Twitter freaked out Monday morning when the official Sony Music Global page posted a tweet that claimed Britney "is dead by accident."

"We will tell you more soon," they said.

A follow-up tweet seemed to pay tribute to Spears' life (1981-2016). Minutes later, a sequence of new tweets confirmed that she lives.

OurMine Security said that Sony's account had been compromised and the pop music icon, who just turned 35, is not a 2016 victim.

Weirdly, OurMine reportedly hacked Mark Zuckerberg and Google's Sundar Pichai recently, warning they were just "testing your security."

OurMine reportedly hacked Netflix too.

Sony Tweet

The hacking of Sony is nothing new ... nor is the proliferation of fake news. Bottom line, though, is that Britney Spears remains unharmed.

Representatives for the singer confirmed this, despite false reports to the contrary, which circulated and fooled many people Monday.

Spears fans the world over were alarmed as tweets from not just Sony, but other verified accounts appeared to announce her death.

“Rest in peace, Britney Spears,” read an actual tweet from no less than Bob Dylan’s verified account; Bob apparently is a fan of Britney?

That tweet from Dylan and many others like it were deleted shortly after the hoax was debunked and they realized they'd been had.

Sony Tweeted

“I assume their account has been hacked,” Adam Leber, Spears’ longtime manager, told CNN later on Monday. “I haven’t spoken to anyone."

"I am certain their account was hacked. Britney is fine and well," he assured the star's fans, noting that this was a first, even for her.

"There have been a few Internet clowns over the years who have made similar claims about her death, but never the official Sony Music Twitter.”

Britney personally took to Twitter, writing simply:

"Don't underestimate the power of Charlie’s."

Britney included the following collage:

Britney Selfies

Silver lining of death hoaxes? New selfies from Brit!

Spears is no stranger to outrageous rumors and theories over the years, but Sony has its own history with hackers too, as we know.

We're gonna blame Putin. Kidding/not kidding.

Long before hacking became so widespread, the emails of top executives were famously hijacked in 2014, leading to several controversies.

The Spears fake-out is surprising and yet not.

It comes on the heels of some very real celebrity deaths (George Michael) and health crises (Carrie Fisher) over the past week alone.

With the way this incredibly, often tragic year has gone, you could almost believe that something like this would happen in the waning days.

Fortunately, it was just another hoax. Phew.

When she's not being fake-killed off by hackers, Britney has kept a relatively low profile of late, but is still going strong in life and work.

And love, according to multiple recent reports.

She's started dating Sam Ashgari, who was a dancer in Britney and Tinashe's hot "Slumber Party" video, and is performing in Vegas.

Are they having slumber parties for two yet?!

A source close to the couple says they're in the "getting-to-know-you" stage of their relationship, having gone on three dates this far. 

He's certainly glad she'll live to see a fourth.

Many a celebrity has been done in by Twitter, Facebook or other nefarious Internet hoax-making, but the Sony Twitter is quite unusual.

Here's a look back at other famous "victims" we've covered on THG, all of whom are mercifully alive, well and entertaining us presently:

23 Celebrity Weddings That We Never Saw Coming

Not all celebrity couples make like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. In other words, some got married very much on the Down Low.

So low down, in fact, that we didn't even know they were planning on getting hitched until the big day had already come and gone!

Some of these surprise celebrity marriages may even last, too, although in some cases, more forethought may have been prudent ...

1. JENNIFER ANISTON AND JUSTIN THEROUX

2. IAN SOMERHALDER AND NIKKI REED

Britney Spears Enjoys ANOTHER Sushi Date With Slumber Party Hottie Sam Asghari!

We see you, Britney Spears!

It looks like Miz Spears is continuing to spend some quality time with Slumber Party costar Sam Asghari. Over the weekend, BritBrit and the music video hottie were photographed (above) leaving the Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ restaurant in Canoga Park, CA.

Of course, this latest outing comes only a handful of weeks after the fitness instructor and the A-lister had tongues waggin' about their potential romance as they got cozy during a different sushi date. We smell a budding relationship, don't you?

The Toxic singer and Asghari certainly looked like a couple as the 35-year-old rocked black knee-high suede boots with a mini skirt, while Sam donned a cool denim jacket. LOVES it!

And Sam proved himself to be a gentleman as he was seen shielding Britney from the cold/paparazzi -- oh, and he also opened the car door for her. Awwww!

While public info is sparse on the pop star's rumored beau, we do know he maintains his fit physique by working as an instructor at Royal Personal Training. No wonder he got cast as the studly arm candy in the blonde stunner's video with Tinashe!

Get it, Brit -- LOLz!

Only the most on-trend birthday celebrations will do for Britney Spears‘ kids!

On Sunday, the “Make Me” singer took to Instagram to share a couple of snaps from her sons’ Pokémon-themed pool party, complete with a Pikachu-topped cake, balloons, Poké Balls with the boys’ names inscribed on them and cake pops shaped like various critters from the game.

“Big bday for my boys! Double digits whoop whoop!” Spears, 34, wrote next to a photo of Jayden Jaymes, 10, and Sean Preston, 11 on Wednesday — who celebrate their birthdays just two days apart — standing in front of their enviable dessert spread.

Dad Kevin Federline was also in attendance at their sons’ bash. Spears’ ex-husband shared a video on his own Instagram account that caught the tail end of Jayden and Preston’s “Happy Birthday” song.

“Happy Bday P and J,” Federline, 38, captioned the clip of his boys surrounded by their friends. “Everyone had a blast yesterday at their party.”

Britney Spears on Anxiety: I’m Far More Accepting of Myself

Britney Spears has had some some very public rough patches. 

After having a meltdown in 2007, it appeared that the Princess of pop would never return to the limelight.

Everyone was super worried about her, but she's continuing to prove that she's great at comebacks. 

Britney Spears on the Cover of the October Issue of Marie Claire

After "Britney Jean" failed to get much traction with critics or in the sales department, Spears focused on her residency in Las Vegas. 

However, she recently returned with a brand new album that just so happens to be her best one in years.

If you haven't listened to it, you should. It's vintage Britney Spears. 

Britney took to the MTV VMAs stage on August 28. There was a lot riding on the performance due to an unpopular performance in 2007 that had her stumbling through a dance routine. 

Thankfully, her latest performance went down a storm with fans. The downside was that she was overshadowed by Beyonce. 

Britney also chose to mime her way through the performance, but her dancing was an energetic affair that got mostly everyone talking for all the right reasons. 

What more could Spears want?

We do know that she didn't want a smooch of G-Eazy. As much as she denies it, her performing partner definitely leaned in for a kiss with her. 

If you missed it, here it is:

Britney Spears Refuses G-Eazy Kiss

Since the dust settled on her performance, Britney has been doing the rounds with interviews to promote "Glory."

It serves as her ninth studio album. 

In an interview with Marie Claire, Britney revealed some of the finer details about her crippling anxiety

"I moved to Los Angeles when I was very young. I was so under scrutiny," Spears recalled.

"If a hair was out of place, I’d be so anxious. I would get very anxious about so many things."

Spears went on to speak about how being a mother helped her overcome her anxiety. 

"Becoming a mother and being with my boys has made me so much more accepting of myself. I’m their mom, whatever," the mother of two explained.

"That has been a really big thing for me over these last few years."

What do you think about all of this?

The MTV VMAs Were Less About the ‘A’ and More About the ‘M’

kanye-west-fade

The big news leading into Sunday night was Britney Spears was making her return to the VMAs after an almost decade-long sabbatical from the show. The actual big news when Sunday rolled around though was Beyoncé’s performance and Kanye’s music video.

Beyoncé had a 15 minute set which, in hindsight, probably should have been the finale considering she won 8 awards that night. But it wasn’t because that was Rihanna’s gig as she was given the Michael Jackson Vanguard award, an award I still don’t know the purpose of.

Sadly, Britney Spears was scheduled to perform right after Beyoncé which is like listening to the National Anthem on 4th of July after seeing the fireworks. You’re sort of obligated to stay. The performance was… alright. We did get to see Britney tell G-Eazy that, no, she didn’t want to kiss him. At least something was interesting about the performance.

Then there was Kanye’s music video premiere which was preceded by Kanye congratulating himself.

The video for Kanye’s Fade started Kanye West enough and then turned into softcore porn before heading into David Lynch territory.

Meh. I’ve masturbated to weirder.

MTV Video Music Awards: 11 Best Performances of All Time!

The VMAs aren't like other award shows. 

But unlike when someone you met on Tinder tells you they're not like other girls/guys, in this case, the claim is legit.

You never know what might happen at the VMAs.

Kanye might interrupt someone's acceptance speech.

Nicki Minaj might call out Miley Cyrus.

Kanye might interrupt everyone's acceptance speeches.

You really never know.

In fact, the only thing that's certain is: there will be some amazing performances.

Check out the gallery below to relive some of the most unforgettable musical moments from 32 years of the VMAs.

1. Beyonce: "Love on Top," 2011

Beyonce crushed it with her performance of "Love on Top" in 2011. It didn't hurt that she capped things off by confirming rumors that she and Jay Z were expecting their first child.

2. Madonna: "Like a Virgin," 1984

The Material Girl was just exploding onto the scene when the VMAs first started confusing parents in 1984. To give you an idea of how different things were then: Herbie Hancock beat out Michael Jackson as the night's top winner.

3. Britney Spears: "Slave 4 U," 2011

Britney Spears cemented her place as a VMA icon with her 2001 performance. Giant live snakes are great for when you're trying to make a lasting impression.

4. Taylor Swift: "You Belong With Me," 2009

Later that night, Taylor would become an unwilling participant in the most notorious moment in VMAs history. But when she crooned one of her signature tunes to a subway full of fans, she was still just the country girl with a broken heart full of hits.

5. Eminem: "The Real Slim Shady"/"Way I Am," 2000

Eminem the real slim shady slash way i am 2000
There were thousands of Eminem wannabes in 2000. But as Mr. Mathers proved in his unforgettable 2000 medley, there's only one real Slim Shady.

6. Diddy, Faith Evans, Sting: "I'll Be Missing You"

Diddy faith evans sting ill be missing you
Diddy's tribute to the late, great Notorious B.I.G. became a massive success in 1997. It also made for one of the most unforgettable performances in VMA history.

Material Girls! Britney Spears Dances with Niece Lexie to Wish Madonna Happy Birthday

Britney Lexie Dancing

It’s never too early to become a Madonna lover!

Late Wednesday evening, Britney Spears took to Instagram to post an adorable video of herself and her 5-year-old niece Lexie dancing and lip syncing to Madge’s hit “Vogue.”

“Pre-show warm up! Wishing a happy belated birthday to @madonna!!” wrote Spears, adding a lips emoji — fitting for the singer, who famously locked lips with Madonna onstage at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards shortly before the release of their collaboration song and video, “Me Against the Music.”

Lexie, however, seems a tad more interested in a foam cylinder in her aunt’s dressing room, only stopping to converse with her when Spears grabs a roller of her own and says, “Let’s play swords!”

Spears — who is mom to sons Jayden James, 9½, and Sean Preston, 10 — has shared her love for her niece, who is the only child of her older brother Bryan, on social media in the past.

“Feeling pretty, feeling summery, feeling pretty summery in our dresses,” she captioned a 2015 snap of herself and Lexie sporting dresses that were both pretty and practical for a hot day.

“I wish it was Lexie’s birthday every day,” Spears wrote in May to accompany a photo of the twosome enjoying watermelon at an outdoor bash. “Best day ever!!!”

And unsurprisingly, Madonna was doing some moving and shaking of her own to celebrate her own big day Tuesday.

“Family Mambo Cuban Style!” she captioned a clip of herself dancing in Havana, Cuba, with son Rocco.

21 Celebrity Weddings No One Saw Coming

Not all celebrity couples make like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. In other words, some got married very much on the Down Low.

So low down, in fact, that we didn't even know they were planning on getting hitched until the big day had already come and gone!

Some of these surprise celebrity marriages may even last, too, although in some cases, more forethought may have been prudent ...

1. JENNIFER ANISTON AND JUSTIN THEROUX

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux told guests in August 2015 that they were attending a birthday party at their home. But then they went ahead and got hitched!

2. IAN SOMERHALDER AND NIKKI REED

Four months after announcing their engagement, Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed quietly exchanged vows in Santa Monica ... without anyone outside their inner circle knowing about it until it had already gone down!

3. KRISTEN BELL AND DAX SHEPARD

Kristen Bell and Dax Shephard got married on the spot in 2013 after a court employee offered up an immediate ceremony. The entire thing cost $142.

4. KELLY CLARKSON AND BRANDON BLACKSTOCK

Kelly Clarkson and Brandom Blackstock engaged vows in an intimate ceremony in Tennesse. The singer simply told fans about it the next day via social media.

5. KERRY WASHINGTON AND NNAMI ASOMUGHA

Kerry Washington and Nnami Asomugha got married in Idaho... and that's still all we know. Few stars are as guarded with their personal information as the Scandal beauty.

6. ANNE HATHAWAY AND ADAM SHULMAN

Britney Spears “Gloriously” Pranks Jimmy Kimmel! [VIDEOS]

Godney is one busy gal!

In the midst of her blockbuster Vegas residency and the new music (y’all heard her new midnight jam, “Make Me (Ooh)?”), Britney Spears stole a bit of her time to prank a slumbering Jimmy Kimmel!

Blaring out her tune, Spears and her legion of naked male dancers danced on top of the host – to his surprise! Though less impactful than Rihanna’s money-throwing spree last year, Brit got her desired response: SHOCK.

Of course, this is just part of the promo train leading up to the release of her new full-length, “Glory,” out August 26 through Apple Music. You better work, b*tch!

Proud Mom Britney Spears Shares Her Son’s Artwork – See the Cool Drawing

Britney Spearssons have inherited some of their mom’s artistic abilities.

The singer praised one of her children’s sketching prowess on Instagram, Sunday. The hand-colored image appeared to be a drawing of Goku, a Dragon Ball Z character, complete with spikey green hair.

Although Spears didn’t cite whether the artist was son Jayden James, 9, or Sean Preston, 10, her affection was clear.

“My son’s art,” she wrote next to a green heart emoji.

Britney Spears Does the Dab with Sons Sean and Jayden

Britney Spears took some time off from her hit Las Vegas show on Saturday to show off her trendy dance moves with 10-year-old son Sean Preston and 9-year-old son Jayden James.

The two boys and a friend did “the dab” with Spears in an adorable Instagram shot — covering their eyes and face from the camera.

“Chillin in the bu,” the 34-year-old singer captioned the shot, referring presumably to  Malibu, California.

Britney Spears Photoshopped Her Bikini Pic?!

Real or fake? You tell us.

The whole Interwebs was in a chaos once again due to Britney Spears‘ recent pool side photo, which got a little too sexy for reality!

Despite garnering over 170, 000 likes, many of her Instagram followers thought her torso section was a case of bad Photoshopping.

“It doesn’t look real. She’s beautiful but there’s something wrong with the pool’s border,” one user wrote.

I say… cut her some slack! Brit-Brit’s just enjoying her break from the Piece of Me tour with her sons.

Continue slaying, Godney!

Britney Spears Instagrammed a bikini photo of herself. If ever a picture was Photoshopped, this has to be it. It’s the same reaction you get from her recent V Magazine shoot. “No way.”

Here she is poolside in a skimpy yellow bikini. She shared a simple caption with the photo: “Just chilling ☀️”

15 Hot Young Celebs Who Are Secretly 40

It's tough to make a living in Hollywood, and it only gets tougher with age.

That goes doubly for women in the film industry, who are often forced to conceal their age in order to avoid being automatically ruled out for certain roles.

In 2012, Jessica Chastain was caught lying about her age. Last year, Rebel Wilson admitted to doing the same.

Both women are now at points in their career where they can confess to misleading a few casting directors and still find work.

However, they might have never gotten the chance to establish themselves if they hadn't fibbed a bit on their resumes.

So when we present the following list of celebs who have been accused of lying about their age, we do it not to shame them, but, well ... simply because it's fun to guess how old they really are.

Jump into the gallery below for a list of stars who may have turned 29 a half dozen times. Just don't judge them to harshly. 

After all, sometimes you have to play with the truth in order to get to the top - and just about every politician on Earth is guilty of far worse fabrications than these.

 

1. Blake Lively - 28

Lively in red
Blake Lively says she's 28 years old. Rumors that she's lying about her age have haunted her since her Gossip Girl days.

2. Margot Robbie - 25

Margot robbie at wolf of wall street premiere
Margot Robbie claims to be 25, but many fans have pointed out that she looks a bit older. Hey, that Australian sun will do a number on your skin.

3. Lindsay Lohan - 29

What is with lindsay lohans face
LiLo certainly looks older than her 29 years. The sad part is, in this case, we don't think she's lying about her age as much as we think her lifestyle has added at least 11 years to it in terms of mileage.

4. Adele - 27

Adele nose job photo
Maybe it's her old school style, but some folks think Adele's latest album should be titled 35-ish.

5. Coco - 36

Coco and ice t leave the huffington post
Coco says she's 36, and frankly, we believe her. Hell, there are far more unbelievable things about her body than her age.

6. Bella Thorne - 18

Bella thorne cleavage photo
Obviously, Bella is gorgeous, but does she look 18? We suspect her parents might've misled some casting directors to give Bella a leg up when she was a child star.

29 Totally Insane Celebrity Tour Demands

We all know demanding people in our day to day life. The person who MUST have a certain coffee cup from the company stash. The one who can't STAND if the office manager doesn't buy a certain creamer. That guy who complains to anyone who can hear if he has to park somewhere other than his "usual" spot.

Those people can be total buzzkills.

Well, guess what. Some of our celebrities can be demanding too. But this is what it takes to get them on the stage, so managers and reps and venue personnel the world over meet their demands and enjoy their brush with fame. (Or they don't. That's totally possible.)

Check out 29 outrageous celebrity tour demands! So. Many. Snacks. (And so. many. towels.)

1. Miley Cyrus

Miley cyrus at the 2015 vmas
Sigh. Once upon a time all she wanted backstage was Guitar Hero and Frosted Flakes because she didn't want to stop rocking. There's really no telling the myriad ways her demands have grown as she's gotten increasingly more...out there.

2. Pharrell Williams

Pharrell picture
Pharrell Williams once requested a troupe of belly dancers. Guess that's why he was so damn happy. (Badum CHHHHH...)

3. Kanye West

Long before Kanye West was Kim Kardashian's baby daddy, his tour rider held the demand that his dressing suite be entirely white, floor to ceiling. Now he's added an $8,000 bed (EIGHT THOUSAND DOLLAR BED) for North, as well as the tot's own personal chef to make her favorite meals with organic foods.

4. Taylor Swift

Among some of Taylor Swift's very first tour demands were: edamame (which she noted came from the frozen aisle of the grocery store), Starbucks grandes, and Ben & Jerry's. Throw in some Ugg boots and it just doesn't get much more basic than T.Swift.

5. Kid Rock

Kid rock image
Kid Rock is a simple man, really. His request? Packs of Hanes or Fruit of the Loom underwear, white one-pocket tees, white tank tops, and white socks.

6. Gwen Stefani

Gwen stefani in concert
The No Doubt front-woman, solo artist, mom of three, and judge of The Voice *used to* request "bright white rooms," 30 bottles of water, 10 white towels, 4 white candles (all the same scent), and a pesticide-free buffet. (Are you sensing a trend here with all the requests for white everything?)
