Source: Kellan and Miley are hooking up

 

Is Liam Hemsworth’s pal Kellan Lutz hooking up with Miley Cyrus?

A source told Us Weekly that the Twilight hunk is having a fling with the Bangerz singer.

The actor, 28, reached out to Cyrus, Hemsworth’s ex, in December, says the insider. “The next day, they hung out,” the source said. “And they’ve been hooking up ever since.”

The source said Cyrus invited Lutz, who stars in the upcoming The Legend of Hercules, on an overnight jaunt from Miami to the Bahamas. The pair were photographed walking off the same private jet, separately, after returning to Miami, according to Us Weekly.

Meanwhile, Cyrus also responded to Joe Jonas’ comments earlier this month that Cyrus and fellow Disney alum Demi Lovato introduced him to pot, Us Weekly reports.

“If you want to smoke weed, you're going to smoke weed. There's nothing that two little girls are going to get you to do that you don't want to do,” Cyrus told the New York Times. “I thought maybe he was saying that like it was going to make him look badass.”

Are they or aren’t they?

Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys play spies on FX’s The Americans — but are they a real-life couple as well?

People.com reports that Russell, 37, who recently confirmed a split from husband Shane Deary, was seen looking close to her costar in New York City, where the show is filmed.

Russell and Rhys, 39, were seen shopping around her Brooklyn Heights neighborhood a few days before Christmas. A souced told people they “looked very much like a couple.”

The spy drama returns Feb. 26.

Unhappy home?

Tori Spelling may have posted a “Merry Christmas” message to fans, but things are not hunky dory in the household after reports that husband Dean McDermott cheated on her.

RadarOnline reports that although the actress won’t publically acknowledge the accusations, she’s making his life hard at home.

Sources told Radar that “It’s all a calculated plan on Tori’s part. … She is refusing to comment on the cheating rumors publicly, even though she believes Dean did cheat on her.

“Tori is obsessed with having a picture perfect family, and thinks it’s a big part of her image. Commenting or addressing the cheating would taint that image. Things are very tense in the house right now, and Tori is making Dean’s life hell.”

The source added, “Even though she is trying not to fight in front of the kids, it’s impossible. She has been crying and screaming at Dean, and saying he has ruined everything, including Christmas.”

Baby makes five

Tennis star Roger Federer and his wife, Mirka, are expecting their third child, People.com reports.

The couple, married since 2009, have 4-year-old identical twin girls.

“Mirka and I are very happy to share the news that Myla & Charlene will be big sisters in 2014! Happy Holidays,” Federer, 32, announced via Twitter.

Keep on giving

Taylor Swift tops the list of stars who do the most good charity-wise stars, EW.com reports.

The Red singer/songwriter beat out the boys of One Direction, who took the no. 2 spot in DoSomething.org’s latest report. She topped DoSomething’s list last year, too.

The rest of the top 20 list: Beyoncé; Paul Walker; Macklemore & Ryan Lewis; Sandra Bullock; Kerry Washington; Ian Somerhalder; Ryan Seacrest; Carrie Underwood; Jennifer Lawrence; Alicia Keys; Bryan Cranston & Aaron Paul; Miley Cyrus; Demi Lovato; Blake Shelton; Mindy Kaling; Kevin Durant; Kendrick Lamar; Justin Bieber.

Toxic ratings

Fans may be psyched for the opening of her new Vegas show this weekend, but Britney Spears didn’t exactly draw in millions with her new documentary.

E!’s two-hour I Am Britney Jean on Dec. 22 drew only 706,000 viewers, according to USA Today.
