So much for amicable breakups. Jordin Sparks was photographed wearing a T-shirt that may have spoken volumes about her split with Jason Derulo. The 25-year-old was spotted walking out of LAX with a shirt that read: “Inhale the good s***, exhale the bulls***”
The former lovebirds — who became closer after Sparks helped Derulo from a broken neck in January 2012 — have been engaged in a cringe-worthy social media battle over a car. Derulo, a graduate of Dillard High School in Fort Lauderdale, gifted the American Idol singer with a champagne-colored BMW in late 2013. After their split last fall (reportedly due to marriage pressure on her part), Sparks went to return it to the Georgia dealership and learned that it was leased, not purchased. She blabbed this information on “The Breakfast Club” radio program.
The Whatcha Say singer cleared up the unfortunate matter on Instagram, by posting the Beemer’s paperwork, which stated Derulo paid close to 75K for the luxury vehicle. The caption: “Women Lie, Men Lie, Numbers Don’t Lie! #WhyLease.”
DAY IN PARADISE
Through the power of social media, we were also informed that Tara Reid was in our midst on Monday. And by the looks of her beachy picture, she could be doing double duty for the tourism board.
The Sharknado star, whose plastic surgery issues seem to be behind her, looked trim and healthy in a bikini posing on a waterfront terrace at the W Fort Lauderdale.
“The sun is really coming out! Wish you guys were here playing!” Instagrammed Reid, here on vacation with her latest boyfriend, Aaron (no last name given).
Sharknado 3 will be released this July, set in Orlando.
SKIN IS IN
Also helping reel in a few tourists near and far: Amber Rose. The model, 31, wore a thong bikini (thong-kini?) that would make Miley Cyrus blush while riding a jetski on our beaches on Monday. Wiz Khalifa’s estranged wife (their son Sebastian turns 2 next month), hit back at cellulite-shaming critics who told her to cover up: “Kiss my MILFY a--!” tweeted Rose.
Gyms that are open 24 hours are meant to be utilized. So Planet Fitness member Justin Jones found himself working out at 3 a.m. last week. Also at the Ocala, property during this unusual time of day was John Travolta, who approached Jones for some friendly chit chat, and even let him take a selfie without his hairpiece. Jones posted the pic on Reddit, and received about 4,000 comments from users with inquiring minds.
Travolta owns a home in Ocala, which is close to Scientology headquarters in Clearwater — and apparently does not have a gym.
After his split with lawyer Andi Dorfman, Josh Murray is licking his wounds with his peeps in Tampa. The Bachelorette contestant was snapped looking downcast while walking his bulldog with his mother. It is unclear what broke up the Atlanta residents, but rumor has it Dorfman wants to move to Los Angeles and get into showbiz. Murray, 30, grew up in the Bay Area, and played minor league baseball.
Speaking of Bachelor news, another (semi) local was eliminated by Chris Soules Monday night. Tracy Darakis, a fourth grade teacher from Wellington, didn’t make the cut. Since Tara Eddings from Fort Lauderdale is also out, we no longer have any reason to watch the ABC show. Just joking.
Karolina Kurkova is really racking up those frequent flier miles. The Victoria’s Secret model was seen partying it up Saturday night at PAMM’s Art of the Party Presented by Louis Vuitton gala along with Pitbull. On Tuesday, the gorgeous Czech and part time Miami resident was snapped doing her glam thing in Geneva, Switzerland, at a luxury watch event for the brand she fronts, IWC. And, no, Kurkova, a married mother of one, did not look the least bit jet lagged.
