SIMON BILES: I Got a Man
Olympic gymnast Simone Biles has a boyfriend!
He was Simone’s date last weekend for her induction to the USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame.
The 20-year-old complained at the Rio De Janeiro Olympics how gymnastics training ruined her social life. She’d never had time for a boyfriend and had never been on a proper date.
Yesterday, Simone made it Instagram official with fellow gymnast Stacey Ervin. Their adorable pose looked straight out of prom night. She captioned it, "Always smiling with you." Ervin also posted to Instagram from their date night and wrote, "You make me feel like I am the luckiest man alive." (People)
MILES TELLER: Engaged to Keleigh Sperry

Love both of you guys to pieces and so incredibly happy for this new chapter in your love story!”
He was eager to propose since celebrating his 30th birthday in February. Since Keleigh’s sister had a wedding last month, Miles patiently waited “so as not to upstage her big day.” The banner on Keleigh's Twitter account shows the entire wedding party. (New York Post)
R. KELLY: New Accuser Was Underage
Another woman has accused R. Kelly of a heinous crime.
Jerhonda Pace told BuzzFeed News that she had a sexual relationship with R.Kelly when just a high school sophomore. They met during his 2008 child pornography trial in Chicago. She skipped classes and sneaked into the court room.
Pace alleged their sex acts were secretly taped. As the relationship progressed, he became more controlling, even “dictating how she dressed and when she could eat, shower and leave his house.”
R.Kelly gave her “cash settlements” to keep her mouth shut. BuzzFeed obtained legal documents from her civil lawsuit against R.Kelly. She’s only now telling her story after learning about his so-called “sex cult” of brainwashed women held hostage for sex. Pace said, (quote) “Speaking out against Kelly is a healing process for me. I’ve been holding this in for so many years, and to see that he always gets away with it, it’s just not right.”
TIGER WOODS: Nude Pics Leaked
While most celeb nude hackings have involved females, Tiger Woods is among the latest batch of victims.
The pro golfer, who made headlines earlier in the year for a DUI arrest, is one of several famous names whose naked selfies recently hit the internet.
According to TMZ, it was his ex-girlfriend Lindsey Vonn's phone that was hacked. The cyber thieves also got nudies of the Olympic skier. Other victims include Miley Cyrus, Kristen Stewart and Katharine McPhee.
Tiger's lawyer Marty Singer has already threatened website CelebJihad with a lawsuit if it doesn't remove the pics.
ROSE BYRNE: Pregnant With Second Child
Congratulations to Rose Bryne and longtime boyfriend Bobby Cannavale, who are expecting their second child.
The actress confirmed the news during an interview with Jones magazine. "I'm a little tired but feeling good," she said after a photo shoot for the publication. "Everyone was very sweet on set today, and you always get a little bit more attention when you're pregnant, which is fabulous."
Rose and Bobby, who've been dating since 2012, welcomed their first child, son Rocco Robin Cannavale, in February 2016.
TAYLOR SWIFT: Reportedly Releasing Single on Friday
New music from Taylor Swift arrives on Friday.
That’s what “multiple sources” told Us Weekly. One of them told the magazine, (quote) “The song is poppy.” That's not exactly helpful. Would you expect anything but a pop tune from Taylor?
A second person gushed about Swift’s upcoming album. (quote) “She's being very secretive about it, but it's going to be a really good one.” Again, nothing we didn’t already know.
According to Us Weekly, Taylor Swift has plans to attend Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles. Her nemesis, Katy Perry, hosts the ceremony. Both are nominated in the Best Collaboration category. Katy for the Calvin Harris song “Feels” and Taylor with Zayn for “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” from the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack.
Further ahead, Good Morning America booked Taylor for an appearance on August 31. Some suspect she'll debut a music video to the new song -- possibly titled "Timeless." Or maybe that's the name of her new album.
