BRAD PITT: "Thrilled" to Be Spending More Time With Kids


Brad Pitt got to celebrate Father’s Day with his children in London last weekend.

A source tells People magazine that the actor is "thrilled" to be spending more time with his kids. The insider says, “It’s been obvious that he has been missing his kids like crazy. To live so close to them, but not seeing them often, has definitely been painful for him.”

Last week, a judge order Angelina Jolie to give Brad more access to Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and twins Vivienne and Knox, who are living with their mother while she shoots Maleficent 2 in England.

The judge reportedly said, “The children not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them,” and threatened that Angie could lose full custody of the kids if she sabotages their relationships with Brad.

The source explains that “there has never been a set [visitation] schedule. It all seemed very strange and unorganized... Brad must be so relieved that the court is now helping him.”


ROBERT DE NIRO: Trump Supporter Interrupts Broadway Show


Robert De Niro protested President Trump at the Tony Awards -- and now a Trump supporter has protested at the actor's Broadway show.

During the curtain call Saturday night for A Bronx Tale, which De Niro is directing, an audience member held up a "Trump 2020 - Keep America Great" banner and stood by the stage.

TMZ says security guards eventually threw him out of the theater.

De Niro cursed out the president during last week's Tonys.

HEATHER LOCKLEAR: Hospitalized for Psych Eval


More mental health issues for Heather Locklear -- she's been hospitalized for a psychological evaluation after reportedly threatening to shoot herself.

James Van Der Beek and his wife Kimberly have welcomed their fifth child together, a baby girl named Gwendolyn. On Instagram,  the Dawson’s Creek star wrote, "Thrilled to announce we welcomed a brand new baby girl into the world Friday morning, just in time for #FathersDay."

JOHN TRAVOLTA: Gotti Fails


With Gotti almost universally panned by the critics and even some mob figures, it's no surprise that John Travolta's movie didn't "open strong." In fact, it didn't even make the Top 10 of the weekend's box office reports.

While no one expected Gotti to challenge Incredibles 2 -- which opened in 4410 theaters, more than eight times as many as Gotti's 503 -- the long-in-development gangster flick earned only $1.7 million in its debut. That was good for 12th place on the weekend box office list.

So what does this mean for John Travolta's future in movies? The weekend that his classic Grease marked its 40th anniversary, his latest film has the word "failure" written all over it.


JASON MRAZ: Nearly Missed His Hit


For a long while, nobody could resist Jason Mraz's smash "I'm Yours" -- well, nobody besides Jason Mraz.

Jason told the hosts of Britain's Sunday Brunch talk show that he'd had the song in his back pocket for years, but didn't think much of it. He said "I just thought it was a cute song, a novelty song, almost like a kids' song. But I started playing it live, and by 2008 I could tell that it needed to be on an album because audiences were really responding to it."

The tipping point came at a Stockholm gig where, "they were singing it as if it was the Swedish national anthem. At that point it wasn't even on my record yet -- they were just sharing an old demo that I had. That's when I knew. I came off stage and said, 'I have got to record this song and put it on an album.'"
