Though Ariana Grande was keeping her grandfather's death a secret from her brother, Big Brother producers broke the news to Frankie Grande on Wednesday.
Frankie's grandfather, who died Tuesday, said he didn't want his grandson to know about his impending death, because he wanted him to stay on the show. But on Wednesday producers passed Frankie a note revealing the sad news. Frankie reportedly broke down in tears and shared the news with everyone else in the house.
Big Brother producers don't usually allow contestants to get news from the outside world.

CASEY KASEM: Body Moved to Canada
We've finally learned where Casey Kasem's body has been moved. The radio legend's remains recently went missing from a Washington state funeral home -- with some speculating that his wife Jean moved him to keep possible autopsy results from implicating her in an elder-abuse investigation.
His former agent, Don Pitts, said today (Wednesday) that Casey's remains were flown to Canada by his wife.
Last week, a Washington judge ordered the body not to be removed from the funeral home based on daughter Kerri Kasem's request to have an autopsy conducted to investigate possible elder abuse. That order was reportedly delivered to the home a day after Casey's body was moved.
The former American Top 40 host, who died on June 15th at age 82, had been in the middle of a dispute between his three children and his second wife.

JUSTIN BIEBER: Shows Wheel-y Bad Form at Disneyland
Justin Bieber just made Disneyland the crappiest place on earth for some fans -- by using a wheelchair to cut long lines at the famed theme park.
TMZ snapped some photos of the Bieb taking advantage of the Disney rule that wheelchair-bound patrons don't have to wait on line for rides. He didn't seem to be worried about being spotted, since he also posed for a few pics with fans, one of whom posted hers, along with the note, "I love how he just pretended to be a normal person on a wheelchair."
The gossip site offered Justin an out, suggesting he might actually be injured, but we're not so sure.

JOHN TRAVOLTA: Alleged Gay Lover To Tell His Story

ADELE: Settles Over Pics of Son
Lawyers for Adele's son, Angelo Adkins, have accepted a five-figure sum in damages to settle a privacy case over paparazzi photos.
The pictures were taken of the toddler in June and October 2013, and then made available to the U.K. press. The damages from the settlement with photo agency Corbis Images U.K. will be held in a trust for Angelo, who turns two in October, and the agency has agreed not to use the photos again.
Adele's lawyer, Jenny Afia, told the High Court in London that the singer is emphatic that her son was not and must never be public property. She said, "It is a matter of profound sadness that many of his milestone moments, such as his first family outing and his first trip to playgroup, were photographed and published worldwide expressly against his family's wishes."
