  • Taraji P. Henson Apologizes to Police After Claiming Son Was Racially Profiled

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 2 days ago

    Taraji P. Henson has apologized to the Glendale Police Department in California for alleging that they racially profiled her son, Marcel, during a traffic stop.

    "I would like to publicly apologize to the officer and the Glendale Police Department. A mother's job is not easy and neither is a police officer's. Sometimes as humans we overreact without gathering all the facts," the Empire star, 44, wrote in an Instagram post on Friday. "As a mother in this case, I overreacted and for that I apologize. Thank you to that officer for being kind to my son."

    She hashtagged the message #TurningANegativeIntoAPositive #LoveTarajiPHenson.

    However, the Los Angeles Timesobtained footage from the Oct. 18 stop in Glendale that tells a very different story. The police officer was seen driving in traffic when Marcel, 20, drove through a lighted crosswalk, failing to yield to a pedestrian. As the publication notes, his race was not apparent in the video as he was driving.

  • Kylie Jenner Says Lip Liner Changed Her Life

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 2 days ago

    In a hard-hitting interview with Grazia U.K.,  the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star revealed how her liner and contouring "definitely changed my life."

    "I always have, like, every color lip liner [in my bag]," the 17 going on 25-year-old said. (How is she only 17?!)

    Even though Kim Kardashian's half-sister likes to rock designer clothes — and a multi-thousand dollar drama-filled watch — Kylie goes to the drugstore for one beauty product.

    "I love CVS," she confessed. "I get all my lashes from there."

    "We definitely have great lashes in the family [naturally]," she continued, "but lately I've been obsessed with strip lashes... All I do is wear fake lashes! I love them."

    Though you might think she'd turn to Kim for beauty advice, she actually looks to Khloé for tips.

    "She always [told] me growing up to put sunscreen on my hands and face," Kylie said. "And [to] always wash my face before I go to sleep."

    At the premiere of Lopez's movie Home (Casper worked as the official choreographer), Smart told E! he and J.Lo were just pals.

    "We got a lot of ties. We're very close," Smart said about still spending time with his ex. "We're friends. We're very good friends."

    Very good friends indeed.

    The couple split back in May 2014, with sources saying at the time that the relationship "ran its course." There also were reports that Casper had been sending racy Instagram photos to someone else.

    "I had to make a commitment to myself to be alone: No flirting. No possibility of anything. No boys in any way, shape or form. I said, 'I'm shutting it down,'" Lopez recently told Peopleof her mindset post-split. "I'd never been alone… I always found my comfort in another person."

  • Zac Efron's Girlfriend Sami Miro Talks About Their 'Different' Relationship

    Sorry, ladies… Zac Efron is definitely still taken. The Neighbors star has been happily off the market for several months now, and for the first time we are learning more about his girlfriend straight from Sami Miro herself.

    The "vintage curator-marketing executive-model-lifestyle blogger" talked with Elle about her newfound fame, oh, and her hunky boyfriend.

    Miro, a 27-year-old Santa Clara University grad with a master's degree in marketing from the University of San Francisco, met Efron through mutual friends while he was shooting We Are Friends .

    "I've never spoken about us before, but, um, it's definitely different," she said of her relationship with the Hollywood star. When asked how she deals with the Internet's obsession with Efron, she replied, "I think that you have to take that [kind of attention] with a grain of salt, and put yourself in other people's positions. I think that's actually a really big part of it, putting yourself in their shoes, and trying to understand where they're coming from, and then it kinds of makes sense."

  • Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris Spotted Together Again

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 3 days ago

    The latest male celeb at the center of the "are they or aren't they" whispers is Calvin Harris.

    Days after Swift was spotted hanging in the DJ's private booth during his set in Las Vegas this past weekend, the duo met up once again.

    Fans snapped a picture of Taylor, 24, and Harris, 31, together in Nashville, where they were sporting perfectly matching ensembles, mind you. Naturally, a few Swifties are even "shipping" these two as a couple already.

    So is the dating speculation fair this time around?

    We're leaning towards no. First of all, Harris is a sought after producer right now and we all know this has been the year of T.Swift. Plus, Taylor told  the Telegraphshe has no room for a significant other.

    Then again, whoever does land Taylor would have to be used to the craziness, and Calvin Harris would fit the bill… but we're still skeptical about this one. Are you?

  • Jon Hamm Speaks Out Post-Rehab

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 4 days ago

    Jon Hamm is opening up about his secret trip to rehab.

    On Tuesday, it was revealed that the Mad Men star recently completed a 30-day alcohol treatment program in Connecticut. "Life throws a lot at you sometimes, and you have to deal with it as much as you can," he told Australia's TV Weekon Wednesday. "I've been very fortunate that throughout the most recent 24-hour period, I've had a lot of family and friends support me."

    Naturally, parallels have been drawn between Hamm and his character on the hit show, which is about to air its final season. He has played booze-loving Don Draper for eight years now, but the 44-year-old actor glossed over whether portraying that persona for so long partly caused the problems in his personal life.

    Before news broke of Hamm's secret stint, his longtime partner, Jennifer Westfeldt, hinted to GQ tha portraying Don Draper may have taken a toll on the actor.

    When speaking with Esquire, Handler alleges she could have been one of the 20-plus women who have come forward claiming to have been sexual assaulted by the once-beloved comedian.

    "He tried to Cosby me," Handler, 40, tells the mag. " Oh, I was in Atlantic City playing, doing stand-up, and he was doing stand-up in Atlantic City in the same hotel, and at like 3 o’clock in the afternoon, someone from the hotel came down and said, 'Oh, you know, Mr. Cosby would really like to meet you up in his hotel suite.'"

    Handler says she knew something was off.

    Many women have come forward in the past several months, including supermodels Janice Dickinson and Beverly Johnson, telling stories that started in a similar way and ended with them being drugged and/or assaulted.

  • What's Really Going On With Rob Kardashian?

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 4 days ago

    Robert Kardashian is not in a good place.

    Kris Jenner's son made headlines over the weekend with an Instagram picture in which he compared sister Kim Kardashian to the "b---h" in Gone Girl . This has been just one instance of his bizarre social media behavior over the last few years. Following the post, the family seemingly brushed it off and attributed it to Rob's "weird humor" and the fact that he's struggling behind closed doors with his weight, but the situation seems more serious.

    A source confirms that Rob, 28, is "very depressed."

    "He definitely has social anxiety, but it really seems like it's more than that," the insider, who works on Keeping Up With the Kardashians , tells Yahoo. "His family has tried and wants to help him, but those are the people he feels left him behind. It seems like he's then just spiraled into a darker place over the past two years."

  • Jon Hamm Secretly Completes Rehab Stint

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 5 days ago

    Jon Hamm has stealthily completed a rehab program for alcohol. According to reports, he checked into Silver Hill Hospital in New Canaan, Connecticut, at the end of February.

    "With the support of his longtime partner Jennifer Westfeldt, Jon Hamm recently completed treatment for his struggle with alcohol addiction," a rep for the star tells The Insider With Yahoo in a statement. "They have asked for privacy and sensitivity going forward."

    The 44-year-old actor is best known for playing chain-smoking, booze-loving ad man Don Draper on AMC's hit Mad Men , which is just about to air its final season. In past interviews, Hamm has been careful to separate himself from his character.

    "I don’t drink as much as Don Draper," Hamm said during an interview in 2012. "I would be unconscious if I did." In that same chat with theMail on Sunday, Jon said his portrayal of Draper was inspired by his father.

    The season 7 Mad Men premiere party is slated to take place tomorrow in Los Angeles.

  • Iggy Azalea and 4 Other Stars Who Are Proud of Their Breast Implants

    No shame here!

    Although Iggy Azalea has recently made an effort to distance herself from the public eye — she quit social media after being attacked by online bullies for "having cellulite" — the Grammy-nominated rapper spent a day shopping with Vogue.

    Known for her curvaceous physique, Iggy was asked a rather routine question by the fashion mag: What would you change about your body? Shockingly (for a celeb anyways), she gave a real answer.

    "I did change something: Four months ago, I got bigger boobs!" the 24-year-old Australian admitted. "I’d thought about it my entire life.”

    Azalea explained that she was sick of having to sew padding into her stage costumes and wanted to be able to wear lingerie without wiring. So why did Azalea opt to talk about it publicly?

    “I decided I wasn’t into secret-keeping," she said.


    Iggy isn't alone. Take a look at a few other stars who are perky... and proud of it.
