Supermodel Heidi Klum and former beau Martin Kirsten have called it quits after a year and a half of dating, confirmed ABC News.

The 40-year-old "Project Runway" host started dating her bodyguard, 41, shortly following her divorce from husband of seven years Seal in 2012. PEOPLE first reported the split based on source reports on Feb. 27 and Klum's rep confirmed the breakup to outlets, including the Huffington Post, this morning.

While the Klum and Kristen were never engaged, the Los Angeles Times noted the "America's Got Talent" judge's boyfriend gifted her with matching Tiffany & Co. diamond bands back in May.

"Martin was there for her during a challenging time in her life and it was something she will always be grateful for," an unnamed "friend close to Klum" told PEOPLE, who noted that both the personal and professional relationship between the pair is now over.

One Direction to Taylor Swift: "#GetOverIt"

Posted by Rachel Raczka August 27, 2013 11:54 AM

If you were wondering what Harry Styles and his mates in One Direction thought of T-Swift's many expressions (including the "STFU" eye roll) and alleged award acceptance dig at her ex during the VMAs, they want to make it clear: they're laughing at you, Taylor.

Vulture caught up with the guys of 1D during the New York premiere of their film "This is Us," and Liam Payne was quick to pipe up: "When she said those things about Niall [Horan], we were very, very pissed off."

In case you missed it, Swift dated Styles, not Horan. (It was for like a second, so it's possible you did.) The other guys in the British boy band are pretending that they were the one who has drawn Swift's lyrical venom.

Horan added, "I was so upset that she would go writing songs about me after all we've been through."

And Liam continues: "Hashtag get over it." Ouch.

Styles, like a true gent, refused to comment on the topic.

Your move, Taylor.

Katy Perry, John Mayer spotted in NYC, following still 'madly in love' Vogue reveal

Posted by Rachel Raczka June 25, 2013 09:49 AM

Katy Perry was spotted in New York City last night holding hands with ex-beau John Mayer while exiting a party at the Waldorf Astoria. The Daily Mail released the snaps of the "Wide Awake" songstress and her "Paper Doll" crooner leaving the Friars Club Roast of Don Rickles, clutching a tiny Tiffany & Co. bag. E! Online also noted the exes were spotted by photographers at both the Greenwich and Bowery Hotels in New York Sunday night.

Just last month, Perry was rumored to be linked to "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson after the two were also spotted at the Bowery by Hollywood Life. However, Perry seemed set the record straight when she revealed in the July issue of Vogue that she is still 'madly in love with' the 35-year-old Mayer.

The two were first rumored to be dating in August 2012 after they were spotted by E! on a night out in L.A., but Mayer confirmed their split on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" back in April. "I've been much happier since then," he told the talk show host.

E! first reported their alleged reunion over Memorial Day weekend when they were said to be "hanging out" at a party hosted by Perry.

Perry split from 38-year-old comedian Russell Brand in February 2012. She told Vogue Brand texted her in December 2011 requesting a divorce. The two were married in 2010.

No official comment on the rumored relationship has been released from either artists' camps.

Joe Simpson speaks out on racy Nick Lachey claims

Posted by Rachel Raczka June 4, 2013 09:42 AM

Jessica Simpson's father, Joe, said he would "still have a beer" with his daughter's former husband, Nick Lachey, after the 98 Degrees front man trashed him on "Watch What Happens Live" last month. When host Andy Cohen had Lachey and his brother Drew on the Bravo talk show, he asked Nick, "What is the best thing about no longer having Joe Simpson as a father-in-law?"

Drew piped in first with a firm, "Everything!"

But Nick laughed it off, adding, "The best thing about not having Joe Simpson as a father-in-law is I don't have to play grab-ass under the table on Easter Sunday."

The elder Lachey also added that it had been about "six years" since he last spoke to his ex-wife. "It was like another lifetime ago," he said.

The "Newlyweds" stars married in 2002 and later divorced in 2006. Lachey then wed Vanessa Minnillo in 2011 and celebrated the birth of their first child in 2012. Meanwhile, Jessica is expecting her second child with fiance Eric Johnson.

However, Joe seems to be taking the remark with stride. When approached by a TMZ camera crew outside West Hollywood's Greystone Manor with a gaggle of ladies, he told the gossip network: "I love Nick and I think he was a good husband to my daughter." He added that he would still grab a beer with the singer today, even though the comment caught him off guard.

What do you think of Joe's response? Do you think Lachey was out of line? Sound off here.

Report: Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart break up

Posted by Kristi Palma May 20, 2013 08:44 AM

"Twilight" stars Robert Pattinson, 27, and Kristen Stewart, 23, have reportedly called it quits -- again.

E! News reports in the video above that Robsten broke up Saturday after three years of dating. However, Rob did not move out. So perhaps the split is not a permanent one?

Who could forget the drama last summer when Stewart cheated on Pattinson with Rupert Sanders, the married director of her flick, "Snow White and the Huntsman."

Things have been strange between the two this month, reports People.com. They have been spending less and less time together and Stewart was MIA on Pattinson's birthday May 13. She is apparently pretty upset about the break, according to People's sources, and hasn't left her house in days.

What do you think? Do you think they are finally over?
