Not only was Brad Pitt "blindsided" by estranged wife Angelina Jolie's divorce filing (and blocked from calling her!) but he hasn't seen their kids since she filed for divorce on September 19.
An insider told Us Weekly
, "He knows the severity of the allegations and wants to be cleared of abuse before he sees them. He is confident he will be cleared. The kids are asking to see Brad, so he is hoping to see them next week." Another source added, "He's so torn up and shattered, not only because of the divorce but because he hasn't seen the kids and he really wants to. Being apart from them is part of why he's so torn up."
Pitt is currently under investigation by the FBI for alleged child abuse, and though an altercation did take place on the family's private jet on September 14, numerous sources close to the star back him up and say that he didn't strike or hurt Maddox during the confrontation. Clearly Jolie has a different side to her story, because when she released a statement following the split, she said the "decision was made for the health of the family."
Jolie is seeking sole physical custody of Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8. She's holed up with them (plus her assistant and bodyguards) at a Malibu rental, and we haven't seen her or Brad in over a week.

Kourtney Kardasian and Scott Disick took their oldest children, Mason and Penelope, to the movies on Sunday in Calabasas, and if we didn't know any better, we'd swear that they're back together!
Er, wait a minute. According to reports, they ARE back together! For now, anyway. After going on a romantic getaway to Miami, the duo are apparently giving things another shot. "Kourtney thinks that this vacation was exactly what they needed to get them back on the right track," a Kardashian source told Radar
. "Kourtney thinks that Scott needed to be shut out of her life for him to realize how much she means to him."
Apparently they've been hooking up for months, and they "had a lot of sex" in Miami. Well, just because they're banging doesn't mean they're officially back on, but seeing as they have three kids together, it wouldn't be silly to say they've reconciled. Or would it?

We already saw the pics with pal Kate Hudson (you know, where you can practically see the starlet's nipple
), and now more photos have emerged from Nicole Richie's disco-themed birthday party, which was held at The Standard in Los Angeles on Friday night.
Nic's hubby Joel Madden was there, along with her dad Lionel, sister-in-law Cameron Diaz, Jessica Alba, Ellen Pompeo, Samantha Ronson and Rachel Zoe. Guests skated around a roller rink and boogied to tunes like Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)" and Diana Ross' "I'm Coming Out," and the couldn't seem to stop taking selfies!
"Loved celebrating this gorgeous babe @nicolerichie #hbd #disco #lanights," Jessica wrote, while Joel posted a photo earlier in the week online and wrote, "Best Mom, Best Friend, Best Wife. Happy Birthday Nicole, You keep us all laughing." Nicole then posted a montage of pics below -- looks like this group had a BLAST!

Blocked?! That seems extreme...
In the days after filing for divorce from hubby Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie "has blocked all incoming text messages and also Brad’s numbers," according to a source for Us Weekly
. And not only that, but a source tells X17online exclusively that Angelina has a bodyguard living in his van on the beach below their home on Point Dume to keep an eye on things.
"Angelina is devastated that it has come to this, but will do everything in her power to protect her family," an insider tells the mag. The actress is seeking sole physical custody of their six kids, Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8, and her rep added in a statement that the "decision was made for the health of the family."
Though there might have been trouble brewing over the last few weeks, the final straw seemingly came on September 14. When the family was aboard a private jet from Nice, France, to Burbank, California, "[Brad] got drunk and was fighting with Angie, ... Maddox stepped in to defend Angie and got in Brad's face." The FBI is currently involved and determining whether to launch an official abuse investigation, but sources close to the actor have defended him and claim he didn't actually hit Maddox.
“He is beside himself and has been crying,” a source revealed. “He was completely caught off-guard and blindsided and had no idea she would do this. Angelina filed the court papers a minute before the courts closed on Monday night. He didn’t have a lawyer or anything. She had threatened divorce in the past but he did not think she would file this time.”

While there were rumors for quite some time that Julia Roberts and husband Danny Moder were on the rocks, it seems like all is well with the couple these days!
Over the weekend we spotted the duo at their son's soccer game, and they were snuggling, cheering and laughing the entire time, After 14 years of marriage, we're pretty impressed -- especially in Hollywood where most unions last just a couple of years.
Earlier this year The National Enquirer
reported that the Oscar winner was looking for a divorce lawyer, and Moder has already moved out of the home he shares with Roberts and their three kids. She purchased a $6.84 million Malibu home across the street from her $10 million waterfront property, so we weren't sure what that meant, but clearly it wasn't a doghouse for her hubs!

Kim Kardashian recently chatted with Wonderland
magazine about the upcoming presidential election, and revealed that she was "on the fence" about the candidates after a talk with stepdad Caitlyn Jenner, who is a Republican.
Kim wrote on her website:
"A 'quote' of mine was released yesterday causing my phone to blow up by friends, family and even both candidate's camps, so I want to explain the context in which I said I was 'on the fence' about my vote. There was a point when I wasn't 100% sure I was even going to vote in this election; I didn't want to vote blindly. But I also thought about how not voting would mean that I wasn't making my voice heard, so I decided to talk to my closest friends and family who I love and trust, to have an open conversation about politics."
Still, Cait urged Kim to do her homework, and she did. "I thought about the things that are so important to me that they outweigh everything else, such as gun control and protecting women's rights to safe and legal abortion," Kim continued.
"I found that without a doubt, I stand with Hillary. I'm with her,"
she wrote. "I believe Hillary will best represent our country and is the most qualified for the job. This year, I'm not just voting for myself, but also for my children, and I took that into careful consideration when I made my decision."
"I believe that both candidates have the intention of making the country a safer and stronger place for every American, they just have different ideas about how we get there," she added.

Black Chyna and her son King Cairo went shopping in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday, and the duo were swarmed by fans and photographers when they got out of the car. Chyna carried her 5-year-old son and wore a tight white dress that showed off her pregnant tummy, and members of her entourage helped keep the chaos to a minimum during the retail therapy spree.
While baby daddy Rob Kardashian was reportedly shocked to learn that Blac hooked up with The Game back in the day (uhh, we weren't), this week he gifted her with a red Ferrari, so clearly he can't be that mad about it. Or maybe he had already bought the push present before he found out about Chyna's fling with the rapper? Not only did The Game brag about it on his track, "92 Bars" (he raps, “Blac Chyna head the bomb, Al-Qaeda"), but he babbled about it to Wendy Williams earlier this month.
“It gets a little tricky. Chyna ain't married yet,” he told WW. “It's all good, you know what I'm saying? It's facts."

Despite rumors of a physical altercation and a child abuse investigation, Brad Pitt reportedly didn't hit his son Maddox, and a source close to the actor has revealed new details about the fight that took place last week while the family was on a private jet.
According to an insider, Pitt "was drunk, and there was an argument between him and Angelina. There was a parent-child argument which was not handled in the right way and escalated more than it should have." HOWEVER, the source says Pitt did not injure or strike his son. "He is emphatic that it did not reach the level of physical abuse, that no one was physically harmed. He did not hit his child in the face in any way. He did not do that; he is emphatic about that. He put his hands on him, yes, because the confrontation was spiraling out of control. Brad made contact with Maddox in the shoulder area, and there was absolutely no physical injury to him."
The source added that any accusations beyond that are "a combination of exaggerations and lies. They have taken the overall smallest kernel of truth – that a fight got out of hand and reached a regrettable peak, and that as a result DCFS is looking into it – and they are manipulating it to best suit their attempts to gain custody."
The mag reports that Pitt hasn't seen his children in several days and that he hasn't been in touch with Jolie since the divorce filing. "I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well being of our kids I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time," Pitt said in a statement following the news.
