NAYA RIVERA'S WEDDING MAY BE ALL FOR REVENGE
Naya Rivera's weekend nuptials to Ryan Dorsey only three months after her split from rapper Big Sean has caused some speculation that it was all motivated by revenge. Sources tell TMZ that there are a few similarities between the Glee star's engagement to her former beau and the wedding she actually had with her new hubby.

One insider claims that Naya's trip down the aisle with Ryan in Mexico on July 19th was the same day she had initially planned to exchange vows with Big Sean. She reportedly also wore a Monique Lhuillier gown -- the same designer who made the dress Sean got her before they called off their wedding.

  • Rivera and Dorsey have been reportedly been friends for a few years but things allegedly took a romantic turn after her engagement was broken off.
  • The couple released a statement to People saying, "We feel truly blessed to be joined as husband and wife. Our special day was fated and everything we could have ever asked for."
  • Naya has changed her social media handles to add Dorsey to the end of her name.

SIMON COWELL RELEASES STATEMENT TO CONFIRM THAT HE'S STRAIGHT
Simon Cowell may have a child with a woman who used to be married to one of his best friends but a testimony in a recent trial in the UK has called his sexuality into question. Reps for the reality TV judge have issued a statement confirming that Simon is in fact, heterosexual, after a man named Gareth Varey claimed to have known men who allegedly had relations with the 54-year-old in a taped conversation with reporter Mazher Mahmood.

The statement said, "Simon was referred to during the trial without forewarning, resulting in widespread media coverage of untrue claims regarding his private life. In 2014 the question of whether someone is or is not gay is antiquated. (As it happens he isn't, though if he were, he would simply have said so). However, the issue was the false suggestion made by Mr. Varey that Simon -- who is renowned for his honesty and candidness -- had thus not been truthful in the public arena and this is what we have been obliged to clarify."

  • Varey later recanted his claim and apologized saying, "At some point and utterly out of the blue Mahmood asked me if Simon Cowell was gay. I said he was. This is not true. I do not know why I said it, but assume it is because I was so drunk and felt that I was giving Mahmood the type of information he was seeking. I am very sorry for this."

'GAME OF THRONES' ACTRESS BLASTS BRITISH AIRWAYS ON TWITTER
Maisie Williams was not pleased about being denied entry to British Airway's business lounge while traveling recently so she made sure all of her nearly 600,000 Twitter followers heard about it. The Game of Thrones actress took the social media site over the weekend (July 19th) to point out the unfair rules that the airline has in place for its VIP area.

Maisie wrote, "Denied from the business lounge once again for being under 18 and without an adult.. @British_Airways sort your shit out." She added, "I'm not saying I deserve special treatment..Just saying if 16-18 yr olds are grown up enough to travel 5,400 miles around the world..I'm sure we can handle sitting quietly in the damn lounge."

  • When the airline responded by pointing out that travelers must be 18 or older to enjoy the lounge, the 17-year-old shot back, "Yes.. @British_Airways fully understand that, my question is why? Why can we travel alone but not use the lounge? It makes no sense."
  • Ed Sheeran caught wind of the exchange and chimed in by writing, "Ah British airways. You failed again."

Downey told the magazine, "It's down to Kevin Feige -- Marvel Studios president --and Ike Perlmutter -- CEO of Marvel Entertainment -- and Disney to come to us with what the proposal is, and that's on us to agree or disagree. When things are going great, there's a lot of agreement." The 49-year-old added, "It's that thing of: Why give up the belt when it feels like you can barely get jabbed? Most people are saying that right when they get knocked out. The future is, as usual, uncertain."

The bride confirmed the news to People and added, "There was nothing about it that was overwhelming or very huge or fabulous in that way. We tried to keep everything really intimate and beautiful and sort of going along with nature. I think one of the reasons we picked it was because we love the ocean and we both grew up by the sea. To be by the sea was wonderful. And the people of Jamaica are just wonderful."
