Hello and welcome to Gossip Time, a weekly guide to the stars by Allie Jones. This week: a reality star and an actor get spotted, an octogenarian gets surprised by a pregnancy, and Orlando Bloom gets away from Katy Perry.
P.S. Leo Summer has begun. Paid subscribers got an in-depth look at DiCaprio’s party plans this week; click here to subscribe and catch up.
It’s Gen Z’s version of the moon landing: The tabloids finally got photos of Kylie Jenner and Timothée Chalamet together. The two have been rumored to be dating since April, and now their connection is confirmed via some blurry shots of them hanging out in Chalamet’s Beverly Hills backyard.
According to Page Six, the 27-year-old actor and 25-year-old lipkit entrepreneur came together for a Memorial Day weekend barbecue with their sisters Kendall Jenner and Pauline Chalamet. Please note that Kylie is holding a pack of cigarettes and an ashtray in the photo below — this to me indicates that she did not realize she was being photographed, as the Kardashian-Jenners have never held themselves out to be smokers (not even one cig a week like Gwyneth Paltrow or whatever).
Also, I think the pics must have been taken over a period of a couple days, as Kylie can be seen wearing three different shirts in them: a tie-dye option, a white crop top, and a black tee. According to a source who talked to the Daily Mail, she has been spending “upwards of six days a week” at Chalamet’s home. So…every day? That seems unlikely given she has two children at home.
Us Weekly claims, however, that Ky and Timmy “have been spending as much time together as they can because he is going to be back in New York this summer to film the Bob Dylan biopic. They’re making the most of their time together and seeing each other as much as they can.”
What, exactly, do they see in each other? That simply cannot be captured by the long lens of a paparazzo. For now, we must be content to picture them wandering around wordlessly together, checking out the landscaping.
Just weeks after Robert De Niro, 79, announced he had fathered his seventh child with his girlfriend Tiffany Chen, news broke that Al Pacino, 83, is expecting a new baby of his own. The situation is MESSY though: the tabloids are reporting that Pacino no longer has a relationship with the expectant mother, a 29-year-old producer named Noor Alfallah. Alfallah is reportedly eight months along, and a source told Showbiz411 (sure) that she did not tell Pacino about the pregnancy until she was 11 weeks (not that crazy). “They have no relationship,” the source alleged. “Lawyers have been working on this for months.”
TMZ reports that Pacino has “medical issues that would have commonly prevented a man from impregnating a woman,” and that he asked for a prenatal DNA test when Alfallah told him about the pregnancy. TMZ’s source says she complied and that the baby is his. Pacino has three other children: Julie Pacino, 33, and twins Anton and Olivia Pacino, 22.
A source close to Alfallah told Page Six that she is not a “gold digger” and that Pacino is simply her type. She reportedly dated Mick Jagger a few years ago when he was in his 70s. “She is very positive and not an opportunist,” this source claimed. “She loves old people and these guys are fascinating.”
She loves old people! I’ll bet. Pacino, in turn, loves young people, though his last girlfriend was only 30-some years younger than him: He dated the actress Lucila Sola, now 46, for several years until 2020. Sola is incidentally mom to Camila Morrone, the most recent ex-girlfriend of Leo DiCaprio. Interestingly enough, Pacino was photographed visiting Sola earlier this year in March. Pacino and Alfallah, meanwhile, were last seen together in one of her Instagram photos in April.
I’m sure everything will work out just fine.
STUFF BY HILARY DUFF: For the last few weeks, Hilary Duff has been promoting a collection of astral-themed coffee cups that she (maybe?) designed. Click below to see what they look like.
Finally, I will leave you with this photo of Orlando Bloom enjoying some beach time on a solo vacation at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes this week:
Katy Perry was nowhere to be seen.
