Has Rob Pattinson moved on?


No moping around for Robert Pattinson. Kristen Stewart’s ex was photographed with a woman in his car who resembled Elvis Presley’s actress granddaughter Riley Keough.

No matter. The actor will be in high demand if he (as rumored) gets the role of Christian Grey in the 50 Shades of Grey movie, set for an August 2014 release.

Cause of death

Chris Kelly of the ’90s rap duo Kriss Kross died of a drug overdose, an Atlanta medical office investigator said Monday. A toxicology screening revealed that Kelly, 34, had a mixture of drugs in his system when he was pronounced dead on May 1.

Hey, that’s mine

Pharrell Williams wants a judge to rule that a trademark for his “I am OTHER” company is not infringing on Will.i.am’s “I AM” trademark. Pharrell filed legal papers in federal court in Manhattan. He’s seeking a declaratory judgment of non-infringement. The artists have been in dispute for the past several months over the issue. Will.i.am has owned the “I AM” trademark since 2001. He filed objections in March and May against Pharrell’s company, i am OTHER, that launched in 2010. Will.i.am uses “I AM” for his businesses, including his charity foundation I AM ANGEL. Pharrell’s i am OTHER produces the hit web series Awkward Black Girl. Confused yet?

Family tragedy

Stars are coming out to grieve for Pierce Brosnan, who lost his 42-year-old daughter Charlotte from ovarian cancer in London last week. The Irishman’s onetime Remington Steele co-star Stephanie Zimbalist wrote on Facebook: “Sad news to announce. Please join us in sending love, prayers and sympathy...”

Could a BRCA mutation gene test have saved her life? Her mother, Australian actress Cassandra Harris, died of the disease at age 41 in 1991, as did her own mother.

Charlotte’s father was Dermot Harris, brother of actor Richard. Brosnan adopted her and older brother Chris after their father died in 1986.

Oh, Canada

It’s for real this time: Avril Lavigne and Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger rocked the knot on their national holiday: Canada Day, which was Monday. But they swapped vows in the South of France. This is the second marriage for Lavigne, 28, whose ex is Sum 41 front man Deryck Whibley; Kroeger, 38, has always been a bachelor.

Girl power

Welcome to the world, Maven Morgan. Tracy Morgan announced he had a daughter with fiancee Megan Wollover. The 30 Rock star, 45, has three grown sons from his previous marriage.

Colin Hanks and Samantha Bryant had a second daughter they named Charlotte.
