Does this mean there won't be any more collaborations?

Just days after Rihanna wished her ex, Chris Brown, a happy birthday via Twitter, the two are now no longer following each other, E! News reports.

So what happened?

Well, when Brown released a freestyle version of Kanye West's "Way Too Cold" (formerly "Theraflu") Wednesday night, he could be heard rapping in an unflattering manner about a woman.

Speculation quickly began to run rampant that Brown was referring to Rihanna, who may very well have thought the same thing seeing how she immediately unfollowed him.

Soon after, Brown himself stopped following Rihanna, as well as tweeting out the following regarding the rumors: "Assumptions! I didn't say any names so if u took offense to it then it's something you feel guilty about."

Ellen DeGeneres, Kim Kardashian, Dianna Agron and many others were overjoyed Thursday when President Barack Obama said publicly that he supports gay marriage. But Bristol Palin, separating herself from Hollywood's elite, slammed the president's endorsement for equality on her Patheos blog.

In fact, the 21-year-old single mom (and daughter of former vice-presidential hopeful Sarah Palin) also took digs at the president's children Sasha and Malia.

"Is anyone really surprised by the fact that President Obama came out of the closet for gay marriage?" Bristol wrote. "What was most surprising is when he explained how his position (supposedly) 'evolved' by talking to his wife and daughters."

"So let me get this straight -- it's a problem if my mom listened too much to my dad," she reasoned. "But it's a heroic act if the president made a massive change in a policy position that could affect the entire nation after consulting with his teenage daughters?"

In Obama's interview with "Good Morning America," he said that his daughters (Sasha, 10, and Malia, 13) had friends with same-sex couple parents. "It doesn't make sense to them," that these friends' parents should be treated differently, the president said, adding, "that's the kind of thing that prompts a change in perspective."

Bristol Palin didn't see it that way. "While it's great to listen to your kids' ideas, there's also a time when dads simply need to be dads," she wrote. "In this case, it would've been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while [their friends'] parents are no doubt lovely people, that's not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage."

A funny guy with a cane, a hat and an unforgettable mustache is heading to Broadway.

Producers announced Thursday that a new musical depicting the life of Charlie Chaplin will begin performances later this summer at the Barrymore Theatre. Previews begin Aug. 21 with an opening set for Sept. 10, the Associated Press reports.

Warren Carlyle, who directed and choreographed "Hugh Jackman: Back on Broadway" and choreographed the revival of "Follies" this season, will direct and choreograph.

The musical debuted at the La Jolla Playhouse in 2010 under the name "Limelight" and won the San Diego Theatre Critics Circle's Craig Noel Award for Best Musical.

Here's a case Elle Woods probably wants no part of.

Reese Witherspoon's mother, Betty Witherspoon, is suing the Oscar winner's father, John Witherspoon, for bigamy, E! News reports.

While Betty and John have been separated since 1996, the "Legally Blonde" star's parents are still legally married.

As a result, Betty is seeking to have John's Jan. 14 marriage in Tennessee to Tricianne Taylor annulled, USA Today reports.

In her lawsuit, filed against both John and Tricianne, Betty insists she is still in love with her husband and does not want to divorce him.

What's more, Betty believes John is suffering from early-onset dementia and that Taylor might be taking advantage of his condition, stating in court documents that Taylor already is living in a Nashville condo owned by Reese as well as getting John to change his will.

"When I confronted my husband, he said he didn't know who Tricianne Taylor was and that he did not remember getting married," Betty said in the affidavit. "I also fear for my husband's personal safety and the safety of my family."

Sean Bean is in hot water after allegedly harassing his ex-wife, E! News reports.

The sword-wielding star of "Game of Thrones" and "The Lord of the Rings" was reportedly arrested Tuesday over claims he made harassing phone calls and sent abusive text messages to his former wife, actress Georgina Sutcliffe, according to the Daily Mail.

The 53-year-old Bean was taken into the Holborn police station in central London on "suspicion of harassment," and was later released on bail, according to reports. (As required by British law, police did not identify Bean by name as a suspect.)

Bean and Sutcliffe split in December 2010, citing irreconcilable differences, after two years of marriage.

The supposedly spatting duo met in 2003 while Sutcliffe was managing a bar in a London theater where Bean was playing Macbeth.

No further details have been given regarding the incident or incidents just yet.
