Despite not having any children together, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are in the midst of a custody battle. The estranged couple are now reportedly figuring out custody over their pets. RadarOnline.com reports the two have a cat, Max, and a dog, Bear. Stewart wants to keep Max while Pattinson wants to retain custody of Bear, a mixed mutt he adopted from a high-kill shelter in New Orleans, but according to a "source," Stewart won't give up the dog without a fight. "They adopted Bear together and she always felt that he was their little baby." Looks like someone has been spending too much time around werewolves.
When we said Cuba Gooding Jr. should be locked up for his post-Oscar career (Boat Trip, Snow Dogs), we were (mostly) kidding but it looks like the actor is really wanted by police. New Orleans police have issued an arrest warrant for Gooding after he allegedly shoved a bartender at a Bourbon Street bar early Tuesday morning. The Oscar winner is in town shooting the historical drama The Butler, which also stars Oprah Winfrey. According to police, Gooding became enraged and started cursing after several passerby began taking photos of him. He then allegedly shoved a female bartender after she asked him to leave the bar. He's wanted on a misdemeanor battery warrant.
Snoop is dropping the D-O-Double-G and taking on a new moniker — Snoop Lion. The rapper unveiled the new name in his new documentary, Reincarnated, which follows Snoop recording his new Reggae album of the same name. Snoop said he got his new name from a high priest while at a Rastafarian temple in Jamaica. "No more. You are the light; you are the lion," said the priest. "I always said I was Bob Marley reincarnated," said Snoop. This prompted Snoop to change his name and take his music in a new direction. What's the next name change for Snoop? Will he take a cue from Apple and go by Snoop Mountain Lion?
Serial dater Taylor Swift has moved on from dating actors and artists and is now reportedly hooking up with a member of America's Royal Family. People reports the country singer is dating Conor Kennedy, the son of Robert Kennedy and the late Mary Kennedy. Over the Fourth of July, Swift was photographed hugging Patrick Schwarzenegger, Arnold and Maria Shriver son, but it looks like Swift has locked on to Conor, as the two have been seen eating pizza and walking hand-in-hand. So when do you think we can expect a song about the inevitable breakup?
