ABBY LEE MILLER: Prison Brawl
Abby Lee Miller predicted she’d face sex and violence in prison.
The star of Dance Moms entered prison this month for a year-long sentence. Last weekend, Abby got into a brawl with another inmate, who grew annoyed by her new roommate.
An insider told Radar Online that Abby spends her days “reading trashy romance novels and sobbing.”
Her fear of an Orange Is the New Black lesbian experience hasn’t happened. An ex-con advised Abby that companionship is available in prison, but female inmates don’t go around raping.
Last night Lifetime TV aired an interview Abby gave before getting strip-searched and wearing an orange jumpsuit. She confessed to feeling petrified the prison inmates might target her. Abby said, (quote) “If a people want to make your life a living hell, they’re going to do it. I probably won’t survive.” (People)

ROBERT PATTINSON: Still "Kind of" Engaged to FKA Twigs
Is Robert Pattinson still engaged to British singer FKA Twigs? “Yeah, kind of.” That was the Twilight star's response when Howard Stern asked him about the couple's relationship status.
The two reportedly got engaged more than two years ago. Since then, they've been extremely private, rarely being photographed together.
R-Patz, who was in a very public relationship with Kristen Stewart, said it's been "frustrating" to keep his relationship under wraps. "You have to make a decision whether you want to let the crazy people in. To protect it you kind of think I want to create a big boundary [but] then it’s difficult for your relationship."
Still, he insists he and Twigs are doing well. “She’s amazing,” he said. “She’s super talented.”
Pattinson is out promoting his new flick, Good Time, in theaters August 22nd. (Us Magazine)

JUSTIN BIEBER: Manager Pleads for Sympathy
Justin Bieber’s cancellation of the Purpose World Tour is a mental health break.
That’s the word from his manager, Scooter Braun. He posted a lengthy message to Instagram addressing Justin’s betrayal to his Beliebers.

Billboard magazine calculated Bieber's schedule. The Purpose World Tour spanned 480 days, but for 330 of them Bieber had the day off. Practically an entire year of free days! For the past six months, Bieber performed just once every five days. Yet, this relaxing work schedule had him feeling burnt out!
