A Western Pennsylvania man says Jerry Seinfeld left him a nice “thank you” note after borrowing the man’s rare car for the comedian’s latest episode of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” the AP reports via KDKA-TV.

Scott Drab of Irwin says Seinfeld wanted to drive a green 1967 Jaguar Mark II when he was recording an episode featuring fellow comedian Robert Klein. The show began airing online Thursday at http://comediansincarsgettingcoffee.com.

Drab tells KDKA-TV that he was only too glad to lend Seinfeld the car, which a crew picked up in a truck, shipped to New York for recording, then returned four days later.

Drab says he opened the glove box to find “a handwritten note saying thank you from Jerry Seinfeld. I was really deeply touched by it.”

Drab has a private collection of classic Jaguars and memorabilia.

Chris Colfer's Twitter was hacked Thursday, sending fans into a panic after a tweet was posted claiming that the actor was exiting the show that made him famous, People reports.

"Due to personal issues, I have been let go from the cast of ‘‍GLEE.’‍ Explanations will come shortly … " the errant tweet said.

“Glee” die-hards, however, can rest easy – The announcement was quickly proven to be a hoax.

"It appears his Twitter was hacked," Colfer's rep tells People. "He's on a flight, and he will be returning next season. Fans, don't worry."

In a statement, Fox – the network behind “Glee” – said: "We’ve been alerted that Chris Colfer’s Twitter account has been hacked. Rumors of his dismissal from ‘‍Glee’‍ could not be further from the truth. We love Chris and look forward to working with him again this season."

In 2011, Colfer won the Golden Globe for best supporting actor in a series for his acclaimed turn as openly gay student Kurt Hummel on the hit show.

Mya is staunchly denying rumors that she's Jay Z's mistress amid speculation that Beyonce's hubby cheated on her.

Earlier Thursday, the Internet was ablaze with reports that Jay had been having a long-term affair with Mya. But as quickly as the rumors spread, the 34-year-old singer took to Instagram to swiftly put out the flames.

In response to a user asking Mya if she was Jay's mistress, Mya wrote, "Never did, never was, never will. Illegitimate, thirsty sources with no facts and that's the ‘media' for you-especially today. I play second to no one, pay my own bills, have my own label, own management company, rely on God only and respect myself & marriage too much for nonsense."

She continued, "False rumors are crafted for ratings & numbers. And miserable, unhappy people need someone to judge to deter the attention away from their own misery and feel better about their miserable lives. If they did it to Jesus, they'll do it to anyone. God bless."

The Mya-Jay cheating rumors originated from a blind item posted online claiming the 44-year-old rapper had a longtime relationship with a "very short named R&B singer who hasn't had a hit in a while and doesn't really even act or record any longer." "She basically lives off the generosity of Jay-Z and a couple of other guys," the post claimed.

Mya aside, Beyonce and her hubby have been at the center of cheating speculation since his Met Gala elevator brawl with Solange Knowles. Bey added fuel to the rumors this week during a concert when she changed the lyrics of her song "Resentment," her 2006 song about infidelity, to reflect the number of years she and Jay had been together.

There were plenty of “Full House” RSVPs when Dave Coulier swapped I-do's with Melissa Bring.

The comedian, who played Joey on the beloved '90s sitcom, married his longtime love on Wednesday in Montana, Coulier's rep confirms exclusively to People. Former co-stars Candace Cameron Bure, John Stamos and Andrea Barber attended.

Bure shared a photo of herself and Barber, presumably at the ceremony, on Instagram Wednesday night, with the former co-stars sporting colorful dresses, cocktails and sunglasses.

"Stunning country wedding with great friends #BFF," she wrote.

Coulier, 54, and Bring announced their engagement in June, and Bure told People that the wedding would be filled with laughter and tears.

"I'm sure we will have tissues out because there will be tears streaming down from crying and laughing so hard," she said of the speech that her former TV dad, and Coulier's longtime friend, Bob Saget, was expected to make at the reception.

And Saget was another one of the first to share a glimpse of the big day … or, at least, one of the guests on the big day.

“Stamos walking away with wood at Dave's wedding," Saget captioned a photo of his co-star, carrying a large wooden bench.

Singer Jewel and her husband are divorcing after a 16-year relationship.

The 40-year-old writes in a letter posted on her website that she and Ty Murray want their separation “to be nothing less loving than the way we came together.”

A representative for the singer confirmed the news Wednesday.

Jewel and Murray were married in 2008. They have a son, Kase.

Jewel says she decided to write the post — called “Dear World” — to inform her fans before the news broke in the tabloids.

Her hits include “You Were Meant for Me,” ‘‘Foolish Games” and “Intuition.” Her 1995 debut album, “Pieces of You,” has sold more than 12 million units in the United States.

This season’s winner of Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance” will be crowned “America’s Favorite Dancer,” get a cash prize and something else — a possible Broadway role, the AP reports.

The show announced Wednesday night that among the prizes on Season 11 will be a shot at a small role in this fall’s revival of “On the Town.”

“On the Town,” which was made into a 1949 film starring Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra, features the songs “New York, New York” and “Lonely Town.” In it, three sailors jump around the city looking for love.

The show’s Broadway tie-in also will include “On the Town” choreographer Joshua Bergasse planning a performance of “New York, New York” featuring the Top 20 finalists on July 9.
