Schwartz was notoriously reluctant to commit, which caused Katie and their relationship a whole load of angst. He eventually put a ring on it in July last year.
The ceremony took place in Northern California in front of 100 guests including, of course, a few of their co-stars.
Katie told E!News!;
"I'm so happy to have married my best friend and love that I finally get to call Tom my husband. Celebrating with our closest friends and family has been nothing short of an amazing experience."
Tom had shared details of the ceremony before the event, saying;
"We wanted to be secluded and in the woods and we are just that. It's so pretty. Our theme is woodsey-elegance and the thing I'm most excited about is that we get to have so many of our close family and friends there. It just makes it that much more special."
Congratulations to the happy couple—we're just wondering how many of the bridesmaids Jax Taylor managed to nail!
There's a lot going on in Depp's head...
Just when you thought things couldn't get any messier...
The latest development follows on from yesterday's goulish revelations that Depp CUT OFF THE TIP OF HIS FINGER during and argument, dipped it in paint, and then scrawled accusations of his wife's cheating with Thornton on a mirror.
"Starring Billy Bob Easy Amber"TMZ
Now as we all know, six times married Billy Bob is no stranger to the ladies, but he is outright denying Johnny's claim that he hooked up with Amber when they were filming their upcoming movie London Fields.
Thornton tells TMZ that not only are the allegations that they slept together "completely false", but that he wasn't even particularly friends with Heard during filming, and certainly never met up with her off set. It was all professional and that was that.

There's a sort of delightful twisted irony here though. Billy Bob previously married Angelina Jolie who he met when they co-starred on a movie—the fact he was engaged to actress Laura Dern at the time didn't seem to be a factor so he's definitely got previous when it comes to his co-stars. Jolie and Thornton famously wore a vial of each other's blood around their necks, so it seems only fitting that Depp would smear his accusations against Thornton in blood.
Billy Bob has had to do some fast talking to his current wife of two years, Connie Angland, reassuring her that the only contact he had with Heard off set was a cast dinner, and that the rest is just "Johnny's fantasy".
The messy finger injury caused the Pirates of the Caribbean set that Depp was working on in Australia at the time to be shut down for four weeks while he had his finger tip repaired—at the time it was described as an "on set injury".
It's not only Johnny's finger that's messy, the whole divorce is getting more bizarre by the day. With new lawyers being hired, the timely release of videos showing a drunken Depp, accusations of infidelity, abuse, paranoia and drug taking.....grab the popcorn and sit back!
Justin Bieber appears to hate on his fans more and more with each passing day.
He seems to have lost sight of the fact that the blind devotion of the Beliebers has got him to where he is today. He's lives his life in a bubble of fawning yes-men, and whilst he has long believed he shits roses, his self-love swagger has tipped him over the edge and he is now drowning in a sea of sycophants. He is on a misssion to alienate the very fan-base that gave him his career—and he's doing a great job.
He started off by cancelling the meet and greets of the screaming girls willing to part with extortionate amounts of money to stand next to him and have him toss a little "wassup" in their direction. As all devoted fangirls do, they lived in hope that he would notice them and recognize that they were "the one" for him. They would mount the Bieber unicorn and fly off into a happy ever after.
Well all that was too much for Justin. He didn't want that physical contact and there are zillion babes willing to keep him warm in between Kardashian hookups, so he decided he didn't need to talk to the real people any longer and cancelled the meet and greets.
Yet still they hounded poor Justin. His fans just didn't get it, so he decided to take it a step further and ban any selfies with him at all. It's just too tiresome to look interested in the little people. Justin is happy to sing for them occasionally, treat them to pictures of his fabulous life on his Instagram and have their money pay for his $10k a night rental—but interacting with his fans is O.V.E.R. Take note Beliebers.
Justin has just got on with leading his awesome life, and doing what all good fame-whores do—document everything on Instagram and then bitch and moan when things don't go his way.
They've been inseparable, spending five days straight together and she has been photographed leaving his house very early in the morning (despite them just being "friends", kinda the same way Kylie and Tyga were just "friends" before she turned 18). Now young Sofia, who is Nicole Richie's younger sister, has joined him in Japan on his Purpose world tour.
On Sunday morning, Biebs shared several photos of himself in a car with Sofia and captioned the one with her holding her gun fingers to his head;
"I'm gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don't stop the hate this is getting out of hand. if you guys are really fans you wouldn't be so mean to people."
Dear oh dear Justin! Talk about throwing your toys out of the pram.
When you are a teen idol you've gotta expect the cray cray fans—it goes with the territory. Beliebers may be obsessed and upset by his latest hookup, but hey, they're no Directioners, so he could have ridden it out.
Naturally there has been a backlash among his fans with #RIPBeliebers trending on Twitter. Some of them are in tears of disbelief and have even <gasp>, unfollowed him.
Now there has been a timely interjection from Selena Gomez. In a swiftly deleted post (which is super annoying—ffs, if they write it they should own it and leave it up) she wrote;
"If you can't handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol-it should be special between you two only. Don't be mad at your fans. They love you. They were there for you before anyone."
Yay! Well done Selena!
I mean seriously—it beggars belief that some of these celebrities, whining about their life not being their own and the intrusion of the public don't realize that they are the ones inviting the intrusion by sharing every aspect of their life! It's not rocket science, but they just don't seem to get it.
It's like Selena said, if you don't want people to comment on your girlfriend—here's an idea Justin, DON'T POST PICTURES OF HER!
The Biebs wasn't happy with Selena's comment and a few minutes later he couldn't resist biting back, implying that she used him for fame;
"It's funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love.
I'm not one for receiving hate. Hope u call can be kind to my friends and eachother. And yes I love my beliebers."
Selena wasn't having any of it and hit straight back;
"Funny how the ones that cheated multiple times, are pointing the finger at the ones that were forgiving and supportive, no wonder fans are mad. Sad. All love.
I guess we know why they split up now!
A new hashtag was trending #SelenaEndedJustinParty.
We can only live in hope.
Not a great business woman...
All she had to do was keep quiet and she could have had a $15 million payday.
Disgusting behavior everyone would agree.
It then transpired that Grigorieva had audio tape recordings of Gibson screaming obscene abuse at her, telling her that she "deserved" the assault and that he'd "bury" her, as well as making racial, homophobic and sexist slurs. Nice guy huh?
General opinion was that Gibson is revolting POS, his career nose-dived and he pleaded no contest to the charge of misdemeanor battery.
Sympathy, naturally still with the victim.
However, it then became apparent that Grigorieva thought she could make herself some big bucks off her famous ex. Gibson obviously didn't want the appalling recordings going public, and offered the mother of his youngest child a staggering $15 million custody settlement—but only if she turned the tapes over to him.
The Russian singer walked away from the deal on the table—sadly, not so that she could stand up for battered women everywhere, to take on her attacker no matter how rich and famous he was. No, she walked away from the deal thinking she could get even more from Gibson if the world could see what a violent asshole he was.
So Oksana tried to call his bluff and promptly leaked the shocking tapes via Radar in July 2010.
Her plan backfired though.
It turns out she couldn't make more money once the tapes were broadcast after all (disgusting as they were), and following a year of bitter negotiations the warring pair struck a deal for $750,000 instead—critically, one of the key elements of the deal was a gag clause. Oksana was not to talk about the violent incident with Gibson in public.
The settlement was to be made in three installments of $250,000 each—first when the deal was struck in 2011, the second in September 2013 and the final payment by September 2016.
However, in 2013, Oksana appeared on the Howard Stern Show and her loose lips got the better of her. Sure enough she had a chat with Howard about the 60 year old actor.
BIG mistake. The judge had explicitly warned Grigorieva not to speak in public about any of the allegations or the settlement would be void. Now the California Court of Appeals has ruled that Gibson will not have to make the remaining two payments—totaling $500,000 as she broke the agreement.
Now I get that what Gibson did was hideous, and I think that any perpetrator of domestic violence deserves to be outed. Nobody in their right mind would never condone Gibson's actions and his money should not make any difference to justice.
However, Oksana Grigorieva already made it clear that justice was up for sale when she tried to use the recordings as a negotiation tactic to get money out of Gibson.
She wasn't all about standing up and speaking out against domestic violence. She was about making as much money off her rich and famous ex as she could.
So I really can't feel sorry for her that she's ended up with 1/60th of the original $15 million offered and just ⅓ of the actual settlement.
Check out the clip below of part of the Stern appearance—she definitely looks uncomfortable...almost like she can feel the dollars slipping through her fingers.
Hands up if you DON'T think that...
Kendall Jenner calls out her mother as a liar...
Kendall Jenner has been wisely distancing herself from her famous family for some time.
She has carved out a career for herself as a successful model; from catwalks to ad campaigns to magazine covers, she is a model in demand. She's tried to keep the professional side of her life away from her hideously narcissistic siblings and also her mother who, as we all know, will exploit every ounce of her children's life for fame and fortune.
Kendall's latest triumph is to land Vogue's prestigious September issue cover. It's the highpoint of her career so far and is a long held goal for the 20 year old.
Now Anna Wintour is not going to put a Kardashian (however beautiful) on her cover without a pay off, and the interview accompanying the stunning photo spread is Kendall singing for her supper.
Of all the usual yadda yadda yadda, the takeaway headline from the interview is that Kendall confirms what everyone else long knew but couldn't prove: That her mom, Kris Jenner, knew about her former husband (then) Bruce's gender identity issues from the start of their relationship and is therefore confirmed as being a barefaced liar.
The Jenners were married for 22 years before splitting in 2014 and Caitlyn Jenner has always maintained that Kris was aware that she had commenced hormone treatment to transition into a woman before meeting her. In fact, she only stopped the treatment because of their relationship.
Kris however, who has been proven many times to be a pathalogical liar, claims that she was "blindsided" by Bruce's transition to Caitlyn and was unaware of her husband's inner turmoil.
They had a disagreement about it on Caitlyn's show, I Am Cait. Caitlyn discussed with another trans pal on the show, Jenny Boylan how she was somewhat confused by the fact that Kris was more publicly upset by the "trans stuff" than she was when they were actually together.
When Kris joined the ladies on their road trip in New Orleans, the famous ex's clashed on the subject around the table in front of Caitlyn's squad.
Kris categorically stated that Caitlyn did NOT tell her early on in their relationship about being transgendered. She claims the ex-Olympic athlete only mentioned in passing that she thought she couldn't have any more kids because she "messed about with taking stuff in the '80s" which screwed up her sperm count. Kris reckoned this was the extent of the conversation and she just assumed that it was steroids being discussed.
Caitlyn was adamant however, that she was open with Kris about her struggles in more detail.
We are inclined to believe Caitlyn, mainly because Kris is a liar, but especially given one of Kendall's Vogue anecdotes about growing up in the Jenner household;
"My whole life we would, like, catch her, and we would be like, 'What is going on here? I think we know, but do we?' At one point Kylie and I thought he was cheating on my mom, because he had makeup and nail polish. One time we found these squishy boob things. We found wigs.
She would wake up really early just so she could dress up and move around the house and get that little kick for the morning, and then go back to being Bruce-take us to school, totally normal.
So one morning I woke up at 4 am so thirsty, came downstairs into the kitchen, and grabbed a bottle of water. And as I was coming back out, my dad was coming down the stairs in, like, a wig and makeup and shoes-the full nine. And she didn't see me. I literally froze. Please don't turn left, Because she could either turn left or turn right. Thank God she turned right and-to this day- has no idea what happened. That was the first time I had ever seen her."
Ok so Caitlyn left her women's clothing and make up around, sufficiently unhidden, that her young kids could find it, yet Kris, her wife who was sharing a bedroom with her for 22 years, apparently had "no idea" what was going on?
Kris wants us to believe that she was oblivious to the fact her husband was trans, when he was getting up early to dress up and walk around the house?
It beggars belief and we call bullshit.
It seems Kendall does too, saying to Vogue;
"My mom knew. She knew since their third date."
Kris Jenner knew her husband was conflicted, she knew he liked to dress up, she knew he had taken hormones previously. But yet she was "blindsided" by the Vanity Fair cover when Caitlyn was introduced to the world?
No, she was embarrassed.
Kris could cope with it while they were married and "Bruce's problem" could be kept behind closed doors and swept under the rug. She could continue to pimp out her family and be in control of the family image in order to build their fortune.
But the whole world knowing? Caitlyn standing loud and proud and actually having a chance of finding some inner happiness? Oh no that's different. No way could Kris deal with that, so she went down route of lie, lie, lie.
And it just keeps on coming back to bite her in the ass.
It's getting greener by the day....
When the Rio Olympics kicked off on August 5, some of the first events took place in the Olympic Diving Pool.
This is an open air pool and sits immediately alongside the water polo pool. The pools looked glorious, the water shimmering brightly and a beautiful shade of clear blue.
All was well during the initial diving events on Monday, however by Tuesday viewers noticed the water had turned a definite shade of green, getting murkier by the hour until the divers were practically invisible when under the water.
Obviously this set the internet alight with conspiracy theories...
The diving competition on Monday...
...and on Tuesday
Now the water polo pool is turning green too...
- Green ink from the banners next to the pool
- Shrek infested
- Kermit influence
- St Patrick's Day
- Fake tan
- The Hulk got pissed
The Offical Explanation
Rio officials have been desperately trying to find the answer and reassure the world and competitors alike that the water is safe. Bearing in mind the troubles that Rio2016 have been beset by (Zika virus, kidnap, rape in the athletes village, flooding to name just a few), it's hardly surprising the Brazilians were quick to undermine the risk;
The water quality at the Maria Lenk Aquatics Centre was tested and there were no risks for the athletes. We are investigating the cause.— Rio 2016 (@Rio 2016)1470780809.0
The embarrassed organizers quickly announced that their investigations had deduced that the water in the dive pool had turned green due to and excess of algae in the water.
According to FINA, the international governing body for the sport, the pH level in the pool dropped as some of the chemicals in the water treatment process ran out. The fact that the dive pool is kept warmer than the regular swimming pool, and the heat and lack of wind apparently meant a proliferation of algae.
Rather worryingly, the spokesman Mario Andrada admitted during a press conference Wednesday;
"We kept the same level of maintenance as we did before but we had far more athletes. We had more dirt in the water and that generated more algae."
Errrr....is this amateur hour? A 6 year old could work out the pool would be getting more use during the actual Olympics than in the run up to the Games!
Even more worryingly, the water polo pool is now going the same hue as the dive pool, and the athletes are struggling to see under the water or open their eyes due to the huge volumes of chlorine being pumped into the pools in an attempt to rectify the problem.
Anyone for water polo?
The latest theory;
British gold medal winning divers Jack Laugher and Chris Mears have their own theory and think that it's something to do with the decorative boards at the side of the pool.
They told an interview on 5Live following their win;
"We've got some big plastic boards that go into the water just for decoration and effect. But you can see on the waterline that they're blue when below the waterline, and above the waterline it's green.
And we think maybe a load of ink has run into the pool potentially. It's safe and the doctors have given it the all clear or whatever..."
However they did stress that they kept their mouths shut when in the water just in case;
"We wouldn't want to have swallowed that!"
Is it really safe though?
The Rio officials stress that the pools are completely safe. But then they would.
The vice-chariman of the Pool Water Treatment Advisory Group said;
"It's great that they're saying there's no safety threat to the divers. But I'm not sure that that means.
If it has gone green and it's due to a lack of disinfectant, then that means there is some sort of implied threat or risk."
