Diddy steps out with love on Usher’s birthday

Jason LaVeris

If you think a Khloe Kardashian-Sean Combs thing is in the works, as rumor would have it, think again. Diddy is hot and heavy with former protégé, singer-model Cassie Ventura. The 43-year-old mogul (and father of five) was seen dining with her at Hakkasan in Los Angeles on Monday and then heading to Usher’s 35th birthday party at a club afterward. Telltale sign of their love: matching leather outfits.

Secret’s out

Does Leonardo DiCaprio ever slow down? Jeez. With Victoria’s Secret model Toni Garrn in his wake, the actor, 38, is said to be running around with Brazilian model Kat Torres. Who said it? She did. Torres told Brazilian newspaper Extra her happy news. But how long this fling will last is in question due to her big mouth. “I worry about what he will think about me talking to you,” said the 24-year-old bombshell. “We have a pact that nothing can ever be said about our relationship.” Oopsie.

Empire expands

Donald Trump is a proud grandpa once again, the businessman Tweeted. Daughter and Celebrity Apprentice cohost Ivanka Trump gave birth to her second child, a son, with power- publisher hubby Jared Kushner, in New York. The couple are already parents to Arabella, 2. We’re sure they can afford nanny help.

Change of ‘View?’

Out already? ABC is said to be not too pleased with Jenny McCarthy’s stint so far on The View and may already be looking to show her the door. The actress/Playboy pinup may be too controversial, if you can believe that. Her stand on childhood vaccines causing autism, for one, is reportedly off-putting to some, sources tell RadarOnline. The soon to retire Barbara Walters will have the final say, however. Better keep kissing up, Jenny!

Golden girls

The duo of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler proved such a success at hosting the Golden Globes in January that they’ve been signed up for the same job for the next two years, says NBC. The former SNL ladies bathed in critical love for their chemistry as well as awesome ratings — up 17 percent over the 2012 show hosted by not-too-popular Ricky Gervais.

Term of endearment

Britney Spears revealed her new record, due out Dec. 3, will be called simply Britney Jean — a nod to her Louisiana roots, where her family all call her by her first and middle names, she told London’s Capital FM radio.
