Kim Kardashian Shares Story of Pregnancy Body Shaming ... After Watching Britney Doc

Kim Kardashian says she totally understands what it's like to be Britney Spears after watching the new documentary about the singer's life ... because she went through the same intense media scrutiny when she was pregnant.

Kim just opened up on her own experience with media shaming, saying she totally empathizes with Britney after watching the "Framing Britney Spears" documentary.

For Kim, she says the hardest part was when she was pregnant with North, she recalls the media giving her a hard time over her weight gain ... and says the constant magazine covers, like the one comparing her to a whale, made her cry.

She shared a bunch of the covers, with headlines like ... "Dumped at 200 Lbs," "I'll Never Be Sexy Again," "I Can't Stop Eating," "Paid To Get Fat," "Don't Call Me Fat," "I'll Eat As Much As I Want," "Alone & Binge Eating," "Yes, I'm Fat," "Kim's Body Struggle," "You Call This Fat" and "My Butt Won't Stop Growing."

Kim says she was shamed on a weekly basis just like Britney and it really broke her spirit ... and she says no one deserves to be treated with cruelty or judgment, no matter how famous they are or how public their life is.

While KK says she eventually turned the media scrutiny into motivation, she says it still took a toll on her mental health.

Bottom line for Kim ... the media needs to show understanding and compassion, whether it's her, Britney or anyone else.

Alex Trebek I'll Take Hard Hats for $200 ... Precautions After Home Depot

Alex Trebek is not letting the coronavirus pandemic or his cancer battle slow down his DIY ways, but he is taking extra precautions.

The beloved "Jeopardy!" host and his wife, Jean, hit up a Home Depot in Van Nuys Tuesday afternoon ... and then busted out some cool, customized hard hats after their DIY shopping trip, and, of course, surgical masks. They made their way after to the construction site for a new homeless shelter in the San Fernando Valley -- where they took a tour, courtesy of the Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission.

If you didn't know ... Alex is a big fixer-upper guy, and seemed almost ready to get his hands dirty to help out the crew at the construction site! Appears he's still going strong doing all the handiwork himself ... coronavirus and cancer be damned. The work ethic on this guy!

Alex's son, Matthew, made it a family affair by tagging along to the hardware store, though he doesn't have an awesome customized helmet like mom and dad. Maybe he's still in his apprenticeship.

Bottom line ... looks like nothing's gonna stop Alex.

Kim Kardashian Sued That's a Sweet Shot of You & Kanye ... But Ya Stole it From ME!!!

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got love for each other -- as they've declared on social media posts like this one -- but now she's got a lawsuit too.

This tender moment between the Wests ended up on Kim's Instagram -- back in October 2018 -- and while more than 2.2 million people liked it, one professional photographer hates it to the point he's suing Kim.

Saeed Bolden says he's the guy who snapped the loving shot, and therefore he owns it. According to the suit, obtained by TMZ, Bolden says he never gave KKW permission to use it, nor did she pay him to use it ... so he wants a little something for his trouble.

For sure, it's a rare pic ... Kanye's smiling, after all. The photo was snapped at Nas' album release party, which Kanye produced.

As for how much the pic is worth? Bolden doesn't name a price -- he's suing for any profits Kim's made off the post, plus punitive damages.

Oddly, he's also suing Kim's shapewear line, Skims Body. because he claims it shares Kim's IG account ... though the solo Skims account never posted the photo.

Britney Spears Jet Skiing Off into the Sunset ... Or So It Seems

Britney Spears seems to be getting back to her normal life one couple's activity at a time -- this time she's jet skiing in Florida ... but not without some advanced planning on the part of her father/conservator.

The singer was down in Miami this weekend alongside her boyfriend, Sam Asghari, as the two of them mounted some WaveRunners and hit the water with a splash. She was riding solo, and seemed to be enjoying herself as she caught some speed.

Britney's been going out a lot more lately with Sam -- whether it's hitting the town on a date near Thousand Oaks or going for a bike ride with the dude ... she's very visible.

What's even more intriguing about her cross-country trip here is that her father and primary conservator, Jamie Spears, filed court docs last month seeking to extend the conservatorship to include 3 other states outside of Cali ... and Florida's one of them.

At the time, we were told Jamie knew the Sunshine State is one of the places Brit likes visiting, so he preemptively sought to get a handle on things amid all the #FreeBritney drama from last month ... which appears to have simmered down since her court appearance.

We don't know if Jamie's request to make the conservatorship valid in those 3 states was ultimately granted or not, but if it was ... you can bet he's maintaining a watchful eye.

Justin Bieber Just a Bump in the Road Or a Big Ol' Dent in My Van!!!

Justin Bieber had a little chat with cops in Hollywood Wednesday afternoon, but it wasn't his driving that drew them out to an accident scene ... it was his hired driver.

Bieber's limo van was involved in a 2-vehicle accident that would normally be just a tiny fender bender -- if the freakin' van wasn't so huge! Looks like the back end of a Hyundai Sonata met the side panel of Justin's ride. Unclear who initiated the contact, but police were there to talk to all parties ... and possibly take down an accident report.

Officers spoke to Bieber, but again ... he was just a passenger. Law enforcement tells us both parties exchanged info and went on their way. No harm, no foul. In other words: this is why you pay insurance premiums.

Bieber's gotta know it coulda been way worse. It's a sweet van and all, but it ain't worth $2 million. Tracy Morgan knows what we're talking about!

Too soon?

Josh Duhamel Hangin' with New, Young Date ... Future Baby Mama???

Josh Duhamel says he's in the market for a woman who can give him another kid or 2, and he's definitely found a new candidate ... at least based on the look of the YOUNG woman with him.

The actor was grabbing dinner Monday with a mystery brunette at Nobu in Malibu. There was no blatant PDA here, but it sure seems like it was a dinner date. It was only the 2 of 'em hanging out.

Here's what makes it super interesting -- Josh went on Dax Shepard's "Armchair Expert" podcast late last year and said he wants to father more children, and if he settles down again it's gonna be with someone who's young enough to make it happen.

Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard

Funny enough, Josh had been seen getting cozy with actress Rebekah Graf right around that same time. They aren't hanging out so much these days -- case in point, these pics -- and it should also be noted that Rebekah is already 36 years old. Josh -- who's only got 1 kid so far with his ex, Fergie -- is 46.

We don't know how old this woman here is -- looks to be a 20-something, though -- but based on what he wants ... she might very well be the perfect fit.

Get busy, y'all. Ticktock, ticktock!!!

Jeff Goldblum & Emilie Livingston Everything's Roses ... Down on Melrose

Here's a little something to make your day a bit brighter -- or a lot -- Jeff Goldblum and his wife, Emilie Livingston, acting like high school sweethearts who are deeply in love.

Jeff and Emilie were strolling down Melrose Ave. Tuesday in L.A., hand-in-hand and smiling gleefully while doing it. He's rocking the perfect shirt, too -- a rose-patterned button-down on Melrose. Works for him!!!

Em looked great too, but Jeff's in a baller class of his own.

As for why the couple was so damn happy -- well, they have lots of reasons. Jeff's about to get his own docuseries on Disney's new streaming service, aptly called the "The World According to Jeff Goldblum." He dives into the history and science of everyday objects.

JG ... never a dull moment.

Mick Jagger Down, But Not Out

Mick Jagger might have to sit out a new tour due to illness, but he was all smiles a day after breaking the news ... an encouraging sign, to say the least.

The Rolling Stones frontman was seen hanging at his Miami Beach oceanfront home Sunday -- marking the first time he's been spotted since the band announced they were pulling the plug on their North American tour, which was set to get started in April.

He looks to be in good spirits here, which has got to be a relief to RS fans.

As we reported ... the Stones cited doctors' orders to sit Mick out, saying Mick needs medical treatment and was told to skip the tour. They also made a note that he's expected to fully recover the undisclosed ailment.

Mick released a statement of his own, apologizing to his fans ... but promising to work as hard as possible to get back to 100% so he can the stage again.

The fact that the singer was on his feet and rockin' a big old grin Sunday is at least proof that he isn't fully bedridden and feeble.

Get well soon, MJ.

Channing Tatum & Jessie J Spotted in London Hand in Hand on Jaywalking Date

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan are both officially on the move with their new flames ... Channing's finally been spotted out with Jessie J.

The "Magic Mike" actor and singer took a stroll Thursday in London, with big smiles on their faces. It's one of the first times we've seen Channing and Jessie together in public ... after a LOT of juicy speculation.

As you can see -- they looked pretty into each other as they jaywalked across a road and waded into a bike lane while across the pond -- but lucky for them, traffic seemed to be nonexistent.

Meanwhile, back at home, Jenna's been doing her thing as well with her new BF, Steve Kazee. They recently took Jenna and Channing's daughter, Everly, on a Disneyland trip ... just the three of them.

Looks like the conscious uncoupling thing is going swell for these two exes since their big split. Good for them.

Ben Affleck & Lindsay Shookus Back Together ... On a Walk to Remember

Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus are reunited ... and it looks so good!

The former couple was back together Monday night, taking a stroll through L.A. ... and they sure seemed to be happy to be in each other's company. Nothing beats an evening walk with your former bae ... who's sure looking like she's back to full-blown bae status.

Ben and Lindsay started hanging out again last month ... after splitting up last summer. They're already back to doing public events together too. The couple was super tight in NYC last week as they flew back to the west coast after one of his premieres.

Not much PDA during their L.A. walk, but we're still ready to call this romance rekindled.

After all, they've got some history, and now that Ben's clean ... why not go full steam ahead? We're guessing, anyway.

Not everyone's looking to be single for the summer.

Khloe Kardashian Quite a Catch for Malika's Bday ... In See-Through Fishnet Suit

Khloe Kardashian might be looking past her Tristan Thompson drama ... but everyone else is looking directly at her rocking a very sheer outfit for her BFF's party.

Khloe was on the prowl Sunday night in Las Vegas, where she was celebrating 2 birthdays -- for her best GF, Malika Haqq, and her twin, Khadijah Haqq McCray. They're well into their dirty 30s at age 36 -- meanwhile, Khloe's a couple years younger at 34.

Either way, it looks like Khloe's ready to embrace single life again -- her wardrobe definitely is. Y'know what they say about fish in the sea, and nothing catches 'em like a see-through fishnet suit.

We haven't seen her with Tristan since his latest cheating scandal -- and there's no reason to think we will anytime soon. As you know, Khloe let Kylie's BFF, Jordyn Woods, off the hook and laid blame on Tristan.

He seems to be moving on, based on the company he's been keeping -- so, Khloe should too.

Get it, girl!

Selena Gomez Back in the Studio As Ariana Bumps Her on IG

Selena Gomez is back in the studio, and the timing couldn't be more perfect -- 'cause, as of this week, Ariana Grande's more relevant ... on Instagram, anyway.

Selena was seen leaving a recording studio in L.A. Tuesday night, and ya gotta imagine she hopped into the booth and laid down some tracks. It's been more than 3 years since she released a solo album, even if she's been featured here and there with folks like Cardi B.

Funny enough ... as Selena was in that studio, AG surpassed her fellow pop star in IG followers to become the most followed woman, if only barely. On Tuesday, Ariana reportedly hit 146,286,173 compared to Selena's 146,267,801. Both ladies got nothin' on Cristiano Ronaldo, though ... who's sitting pretty at 156M-plus followers.

Speaking of Ariana, she was seen leaving a rehearsal Tuesday in Calabasas as she prepares to head out on tour. Followers or not ... the hustle never seems to stop in this biz.

Not to compare these talented ladies, but they've simply had a much different past couple years ... although neither has escaped hardship.

Selena received mental health treatment last year after having an emotional breakdown. She also had a major surgery in 2017 for a kidney transplant. As for Ari, she lost her ex-BF, Mac Miller, to an accidental overdose, and split with her fiance, Pete Davidson.

Here's hoping Selena's got new tunes on the horizon. It'd be great to hear her over the airwaves again.

David Charvet Grabbing Dinner with Sarah Jones ... Still 'Simply Friends?'

Jermaine Jones might've been on to something when he said David Charvet banged his wife and ruined their relationship, 'cause now there's photos that seem to back him up.

The former "Baywatch" star was spotted at a restaurant in Malibu Saturday night with J.J.'s estranged wife, Sarah, following close behind. It looks like a classic date night situation, even though there are no immediate signs of intimacy in these pics.

Still, the shots could give credence to Jermaine's public accusations of David being a homewrecker and sleeping with Sarah a few months ago ... depending on who you ask.

It all might be moot, though. David got a temporary restraining order against Jermaine after claiming the U.S. soccer star threatened him with violence. Sarah got a TRO against her soon-to-be ex-hubby as well, claiming he was stalking and harassing her.

She also filed for divorce from Jermaine last month, so it's clear the door is closing on their marriage. An outing like this doesn't bode well for any type of reconciliation either.

As for whether David and Sarah are still "simply friends" as he previously claimed ... that one stays between them, we suppose.

George and Amal Clooney Date Night With Mom and Dad

George Clooney and Amal just made the United Nations gala in New York one helluva lot sexier, and George's dashing date is definitely making his parents proud.

We don't see George and Amal out too often, and she's looking totally stunning in this blue and white dress. If you ask us, she could probably bring about world peace with one hair flip.

George is looking handsome as hell too ... and his mother, Nina Bruce Warren, looks like she's having a grand ole time. But, how could you not? Nina's rolling up with her dapper movie star son and his smoking hot wife.

And, don't forget about Nick Clooney, the cute old man in the tux helping Amal make her grand entrance. Way to go, mom and dad, we can totally see where George gets his good looks.

The Clooneys dressed to the nines for Wednesday's U.N. Correspondents Association Awards at Cipriani. Amal is a civil rights lawyer, activist and humanitarian, but if there's an award for best dressed tonight, she's a lock.

Chris Hemsworth Full PDA Mode with the Missus!!!

Chris Hemsworth's wife is on the prowl, and he's happy to let her pounce ... on him.

Chris and Elsa Pataky enjoyed some serious PDA during a beach day trip to Byron Bay, Australia. They had their children in tow, but took a moment to spice things up -- this is how you got here, kids!

It's not every day Chris gets upstaged, but Elsa stole the show in her sultry leopard one-piece.

Don't worry ... Chris still showed off those abs after getting in some surfing. Walking around shirtless -- it's kinda Chris' thing, not that ANYone ANYwhere is complaining.

BTW ... last time we saw Chris and Elsa getting handsy he was ALL UP in her business during another fun day in the sun.

'Y&R' Star Max Ehrich First Time Spotted Since Confrontation With Gunman

"The Young and the Restless" star Max Ehrich is doing everything he can to protect himself after allegedly getting a gun pulled on him by an obsessed realtor ... 'cause he's exploring legal options and beefing up his security.

Max was spotted Friday afternoon leaving a Los Angeles law office with a massive body guard in tow ... the first time Ehrich has been seen in public since going into hiding.

We broke the story ... Max is scared to death because a prominent real estate agent allegedly became obsessed with the actor and pulled a gun on him in a fit of rage.

Police are now involved in the case ... and it looks like Max isn't taking any chances.
