Really, seriously, we need to know what is happening over at the Glee set. The New York Daily News is saying that Naya Rivera was axed due to issues with producers, but E! News is reporting otherwise. Rivera, who plays Santana Lopez, will not be in the finale May 13 but may return. Hard to know for sure because Fox is not commenting. There isn’t much truth to a diva-esque feud with costar Lea Michele, either. “[Naya] isn't fired, and her not being in the finale has nothing to do with Lea,” a Glee insider tells E! News.

New gig

No doubt that Gwen Stefani is really bringing home the bacon and frying that sucker up in the pan! The new mom has been hired by NBC as a coach on The Voice next season. Pharrell Williams is the other newbie to join the panel. The two newcomers will drop by the show Monday; Williams is set to perform his new single, Come Get It Bae. Sans hat, we hope. Neither star’s salary was announced, but Christina Aguilera pulls in a reported $12.5 million.

Is she The One?

These bachelor boys are dropping like flies. Leonardo Dicaprio is following George Clooney’s lead by taking the next step. For the Wolf of Wall Street star that means cohabitation. A source reveals to In Touch that DiCaprio and Victoria’s Secret model Toni Garrn have moved into an $8 million pad in NYC’s Battery Park area, near the Freedom Tower.

Thicke of the night

Was he rehearsing for his next steamy video or is Robin Thicke just a dirty young man? Life & Style is reporting that on April 19 the Blurred Lines singer invited 10 females back to his L.A.-area marital home for a “no pants party” after a night out clubbing — and he hooked up with half of them. “He was drunk and clearly enjoying himself,” says an insider, who was apparently on site. “It was uncomfortable to watch.” Doesn’t seem like a reconciliation with Paula Patton is likely. Let’s see how Thicke behaves Thursday at SunFest in West Palm Beach.

Night crawlers

It’s all on film: Hip-hop stars The Game and T.I. were involved in a confrontation with L.A. cops early Wednesday after a fight broke out at a nightclub. Video obtained by TMZ shows a brawl between two men and by some of the club’s security guards. The site reports T.I. and The Game came out, mistakenly thinking members of their entourage were being attacked. The crowd dispersed, and no charges were filed.
