EXCLUSIVE - Justin Bieber's Trying To Break Into Acting

Posted on Wed Dec 13th, 2017 1:00pm PDT       By X17 Staff


Does this mean he's done with music?!

Justin Bieber wants to be the next big actor, and he's putting in the work by taking classes with famed coach Nancy Banks. JB dropped by her studio ready to work with his notes in hand today, and we have a feeling he already has a project lined up, because we caught him at Jim Henson studios just yesterday.

The Biebs has already had bit parts in things like CSI: Miami and Zoolander 2, but he wants bigger roles now. Back in October, it was reported that the "Sorry" crooner invited Adam Sandler and David Spade out to dinner to pick their brains and get some pointers, and now he seems to taking things seriously.

A source tells X17:
    "Justin has always considered himself multitalented. He wouldn't trade his music career for anything, but he doesn't see why he can't be an actor at the same time. He saw how Selena got a role in Woody Allen's new movie, and it made him hopeful that he can be taken seriously on-screen as well. Don't expect to see him in any dramas, though, as he's thinking he wants to go in a comedic direction."


Can you imagine if he ended up winning an Oscar?!

Posted on Wed Dec 13th, 2017 12:15pm PDT       By X17 Staff


It sounds like it's a sure thing.

Jennifer Lopez and A-Rod are so serious about each other that they're thinking about making it official, People reports.

"All the kids want Jennifer and Alex to get married. There are definitely talks about getting married, but Jennifer is old-school and will wait for the engagement ring before she entertains any wedding talk," a source dished to the mag.

"They are very happy that all the kids get along and have accepted their new family. Jennifer feels Alex is her true soulmate and can’t believe how happy she is with him," the source added.

We wish we could say we think they're going to live happily ever after, but we've been down this road more than a few times with Jenny from the Block!

Oui oui!

Kourtney Kardashian and boy toy Younes Bendjima hit up French restaurant Little Door in West Hollywood yesterday for a late lunch, and the lovebirds certainly seemed to enjoy their romantic day date. We originally thought the Algerian model was just using the mother-of-three for money and fame, but now it seems he might actually really like her.

“It’s definitely serious. No one thought their relationship would last this long, but Kourtney is very happy," a source dished to People.

"Younes has met her kids. Kourtney’s family really likes him. He is the opposite of Scott. He doesn’t party, isn’t flashy and really treats Kourtney with a lot of respect. It’s obvious that he really cares about Kourtney. Younes will be in L.A. for Christmas and is invited to celebrate with Kourtney’s family,” the source added.

If Younes is spending the holidays with Kourt, where is The Lord supposed to go?

We wish we were part of his squad!

George Clooney is known as one of the nicest guys in Hollywood, and apparently he's one of the most generous, too. The actor's pal Rande Gerber revealed that he gave all his closest friends a million dollars as a way of saying thank you for their years of loyalty.

"There’s a group of guys we call ‘The Boys.' George had called me and ‘The Boys’ and said, ‘Hey, mark September 27th, 2013, on your calendar. Everyone’s going to come to my house for dinner. George begins to say, ‘Listen, I want you guys to know how much you’ve meant to me and how much you mean in my life. I came to L.A., I slept on your couch. I’m so fortunate in my life to have all of you and I couldn’t be where I am today without all of you. So, it was really important to me that while we’re still all here together, that I give back. SO I want you all to open your suitcases,'" Gerber recalled.

"Every one of us — 14 of us — got a million dollars. Every single one of us. We’re in shock. Like, what is this?” he added.

The A-list star wanted to make sure his buddies, some of whom were living paycheck to paycheck, were taken care of.

"One was working at a bar in Texas at the airport, trying just to support his family. Rides a bicycle to work everyday. I mean, these are guys that took care of George and now he’s giving it all back. And George said, ‘Not only that, I have paid everyone’s taxes so this million dollars is yours.’ This is who George is. That was September 27th, 2013. Now September 27, 2014, he marries Amal. That’s good karma right there,” he explained.

In other Gorgeous George news, he and his wife recently passed out noise-canceling headphones to airplane passengers while flying from LA to London with their twins Ella and Alexander. He's just the dreamiest!

EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS - Sofia Richie Introduces Her Mom To Scott Disick

Posted on Wed Dec 13th, 2017 9:30am PDT       By X17 Staff


This is how you know it's getting serious!

Sofia Richie brought her mom Diane Alexander over to meet boyfriend Scott Disick at his house in Calabasas yesterday, and it certainly seems like the 19-year-old wants her relationship to go the distance. Most parents wouldn't be too thrilled about their daughter dating a much older party boy, so we wonder how this little rendezvous went!

We think it's interesting that the teen model hasn't chosen to bring dad Lionel around yet. The iconic singer has been vocal about his disapproval of their romance, so maybe that's why. It sounds like Kourtney Kardashian's ex is head over heels for Sofia, and we wouldn't be the least bit surprised if an engagement is coming.

"Scott Disick sees a lot of himself in Sofia [Richie] and that’s why he’s so drawn to her. He’s turned on by the fact that Sofia is a young hustler, a go-getter and she’s super into fashion. It also helps that she’s super beautiful and wise beyond her years. With her partnership deal she was able to land with Adidas, Scott saw that and loved her entrepreneurial prowess that she displayed and not only does that remind him of his younger self, but a younger Kourtney [Kardashian] as well as she’s always shown that she’s willing to do whatever it takes to make things happen for herself and her family,” a source dished to Hollywood Life.

"Scott can never completely erase Kourtney from his memory, but he definitely felt the same way about her when they were younger. He’s almost reliving that emotional high that he had with Kourtney and Sofia has been the perfect companion for him. Always by his side and there when he needs her the most. Scott has never been shy about displaying his love of business and money, and with Sofia he knows they can build their own empire one day. Scott has been giving Sofia the game in what it takes to be a successful businesswoman and she’s been really receptive to his advice. He loves the dynamic they share,” the source added.

LD is totally going to put a ring on it!

Report: Selena's Family Unhappy She's Back With Bieber, He's Not Welcome At Family Holiday Celebrations

Posted on Tue Dec 12th, 2017 1:25pm PDT       By X17 Staff


He's going to have to work overtime to get back in their good graces.

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are definitely back together, and while they're thrilled, her family isn't quite so pleased.

"Justin and Selena are great. They still spend a lot of time together, but are being low-key about it. They attend church service together, have dinner and just hang out. [Justin] is set on proving that he is a better boyfriend,” a source dished to People.

That said, he's still got a long way to go before her clan is confident he's not going to break the "Come & Get It" songstress' heart.

"Justin’s family always loved Selena, but Selena’s family is still not happy about her seeing Justin. Selena doesn’t bring Justin to any family events. Selena is spending Christmas with her family. As of now, Justin is not invited," the source added.

Her parents might not be JB's biggest fans, but his mom Pattie Mallette is over the moon about the young couple's reconciliation.

"I don’t know so much about their personal relationship because [Justin] doesn’t share a whole lot, but I love her. I support anything [he does], if he loves her I love her, and I’ve met her and we have a special bond so I think she’s precious," Mallette recently gushed.

Everyone has an opinion on Jelena's romance.
