Robert Pattinson has asked Kristen Stewart to move out.
A source tells People that the actor, who has been staying out of sight since leaving the home he shares with Stewart in Los Angeles, asked her to remove her belongings from the house.
And early Saturday morning, a moving truck was spotted doing just that.
News of Stewart's infidelity -- she cheated on Pattinson with her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders, who is married with kids -- first broke last week. The 22-year-old actress subsequently apologized to Pattinson for cheating, and sources told People they hadn't spoken since until now.
"The entire thing has been such a blow to Rob. Talk about having his heart ripped out," a source who knows the couple said. "Rob just isn't going to be able to get past the cheating -- one time or not."
The two are scheduled as co-presenters at MTV's Video Music Awards Sept. 6.
The bloom is off the rose for Bret Michaels and girlfriend Kristi Gibson, People reports.
The "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" singer and his longtime ladylove have called off their engagement, his rep tells People.
"Although the couple have separated they remain great friends and are committed to jointly raising their two daughters," says the rep.
Michaels, 49, and Gibson, 41, are parents to Raine Elizabeth, 12, and Jorja Bleu, 7.
After 16-plus years together Michaels finally proposed to Gibson on Dec. 2, 2010, with the cameras rolling; the big moment aired on the finale of his VH1 show "Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It."
Gibson stood by Michaels through a variety of ailments over the years, including an emergency appendectomy, a near-fatal brain hemorrhage and a stroke.
"The Hobbit" will be a trilogy, just like "The Lord of the Rings."
After much deliberation since wrapping principal photography, Peter Jackson has confirmed that a third installment of J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit" is in the works, E! News reports.
"It is only at the end of a shoot that you finally get the chance to sit down and have a look at the film you have made," the Oscar-winning filmmaker wrote on his Facebook page Monday morning. "Recently [collaborators] Fran [Walsh], Phil [co-screenwriter Philippa Boyens] and I did just this when we watched for the first time an early cut of the first movie -- and a large chunk of the second."
Jackson continued: "We were really pleased with the way the story was coming together, in particular, the strength of the characters and the cast who have brought them to life. All of which gave rise to a simple question: Do we take this chance to tell more of the tale? And the answer from our perspective as the filmmakers, and as fans, was an unreserved 'yes.' "
No word yet on the title of the trilogy-capper.
The development of the now-three films wasn't without difficulty as the New Zealand director had to iron out, of course, the complicated rights situation with distributors MGM, Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema, which accounted for the "The Hobbit's" years-long delay since Jackson swept the Academy Awards with 2003's "The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King."
"So, without further ado ... I'd like to announce that two films will become three," Jackson concluded. "It has been an unexpected journey indeed, and in the words of Professor Tolkien himself, " 'a tale that grew in the telling.' "
After a serious standoff with the show's production company, the "Modern Family" cast can get back to doing what it does best -- being funny, People reports.
Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet and Sofia Vergara will all receive big raises for the upcoming fourth season, according to the Hollywood Reporter -- as much as $175,000 per person per episode, with bonuses, along with a cut of back-end profits -- after agreeing to new contract terms with producer 20th-Century Fox Television.
That's well above their current salaries of about $65,000 per episode.
A sixth cast member, Ed O'Neill, who was making more than the others previously -- about $105,000 per episode -- will now be on par with them.
As part of the deal, the cast agreed to add an eighth year to their contracts. Their salaries will reportedly reach about $350,000 per episode in the show's eighth season.
The actors had originally sued to void their contracts entirely, claiming they violated California's "7-Year Rule," which prohibits personal services contracts that span longer than seven years.
Production is expected to commence shortly for season 4, which premieres Sept. 26 on ABC.
Saturday nights are looking a whole lot livelier for Bill Hader.
The "Saturday Night Live" star, 34, and his wife Maggie welcomed their second daughter on Saturday, his rep tells People.
Harper Hader was born in New York City and joins big sister Hannah Kathryn, 2 1/2.
Hader -- who was recently nominated for an outstanding actor in a comedy series Emmy -- says that when it comes to parenting, he can be more of a hindrance than a help to his filmmaker wife.
"[When Hannah] hit her head for the first time, she had that pause moment where she looks at you," he explains, "and my wife is really good because she's like, 'Ohh, yay, it's OK.' "
"She hit her head and I'm like, 'NOOOO!' And she's like, 'Wahhh!' My wife [said], 'Give her to me, just give her to me!' "
More drama could be forthcoming on Bravo's "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," as Adrienne Maloof's husband is reportedly seeking to separate from her, People reports.
Dr. Paul Nassif is said to be preparing to file for legal separation, according to TMZ.com.
Maloof, 50, has discussed the situation with Nassif and is aware of his plans, the report says.
A rep for Maloof had no comment.
The couple -- he is a plastic surgeon who appeared on E!'s "Dr. 90210"; she is the daughter of billionaire entrepreneur George J. Maloof Sr. and an heir to his business empire -- were married in 2002.
They have three sons together -- Gavin and the twins Colin and Christian.
Darlene Love, a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer who's considered one of the best background singers of all time, is recovering from a mild heart attack, the Associated Press reports.
Her agent Eric Stevens says the 71-year-old experienced some discomfort prior to a performance over the weekend in Asbury Park, N.J. As the pain grew a day later, Love went to a hospital and was told she suffered a mild heart attack.
Steven says doctors "expect a hundred and ten percent recovery as early as next week" for Love. She has returned home and her planned concerts will go on.
Love lent her voice to several of Phil Spector's hits in the 1960s, in acts like the Crystals and Bob B. Soxx and the Blue Jeans. Love also has Broadway and film credits.
Justin Bieber is an international superstar, but when it comes to the Olympics, he's a big supporter of his native country. And on Sunday, the Ontario-born pop star made the day of Canadian gymnast Dominique Pegg with a tweet, E! News reports.
He wrote: "@domiP3gg sorry im late 2 the party. want to let you know as a proud canadian Im always supporting you and proud of you. STAND UP CANADA! :)"
Adorably, the gymnast had tweeted to the Biebs before her competition, saying, "K @justinbieber I will be competing in the Olympics in a few hours now. I think its time that you say goodluck! #London2012 #TeamCanada :)"
Naturally, she was beyond thrilled he responded.
"@justinbieber OMG thank you so much for tweeting me!!" Pegg, who qualified for the event finals, wrote back. "Thank you for teaching me to never give up on my dreams! #lookatusnow! #believe!"
