Alex Rodriguez is cheating on Jennifer Lopez already??? Well, if you want to believe a story from the National Enquirer! The story says that a woman Lauren Hunter claims she’s been hooking up with him for years and he recently tried to get her to fly out to meet him while Jennifer was working in NYC. She says she has text messages from him too. And a story also came out that a woman is threatening to expose private messages if he doesn’t pay her off. He’s refusing to pay any money. Hmmm, must be the same woman. This woman claims Alex is ‘very into threesomes’ and ‘voyeurism.’ Jennifer believes Alex’s story that he didn’t do anything.

So yesterday mysterious ads popped up online and at random locations around NYC that read “4:44.” The signs were linked to Tidal, Jay Z‘s online streaming service, so fans were going nuts thinking that Jay Z was releasing new music or Beyonce gave birth. But 4:44 came and went with nothing! But it’s been confirmed via the @DJBooth Twitter account that Jay Z will be dropping his 13th studio album, 4:44. The tweet has the 4:44 in Roman numerals, as well as a Tidal tag. But the tweet has since been deleted.

Ed Sheeran was on Carpool Karaoke with James Corden last night and he talked about the time he got drunk in a filthy dive bar in Tokyo with Justin Bieber. They ended up at a golf course and Justin wanted him to hit a golf ball out of his mouth. Ed ended up hitting Justin in the face! He said he still doesn’t have a phone, that contact is done via email. And this amazed me — James said he heard that Ed could put 47 maltese balls in his mouth (think malted milk balls, whoopers) so they had a contest. Ed stuffed 55 in his mouth!!!
