    Eric Hill, one of the suitors vying for Andi Dorfman's roses in the upcoming season of ABC's "The Bachelorette," has died following a paragliding accident over the weekend. He was 32.

    "Eric shared his final journey with us this morning as all his immediate family were able to be at his side when he passed away," his sister, Karen Tracy, wrote on Facebook Wednesday morning.

    "Thank you to all of your love and support and prayers and fasting. It was amazing to be with so many of his friends and family yesterday in the hospital who came to express their love for Eric. He gave us such a gift of a life fully lived and fully shared, and allowed us all to be a part of his last adventure here on earth. It is hard to think of life without his bright spark, but we know he is on to new adventures. We look forward to carrying on his legacy here and greeting him joyfully again someday. I love you so much, little brother!"

    Eric had already been sent home by Andi at the time of his death. However, he

  • Looks like Cuba Gooding Jr.'s going to be showing his wife the money.

    Sara Kapfer filed for legal separation from the actor on Monday after 20 years of marriage citing irreconcilable differences. In the documents, Kapfer lists their separation date as April 16, 2014. The high school sweethearts were married in March 1994.

    Kapfer has asked for joint legal and physical custody of their three children. According to the documents, child support will be determined later.

    Last year, Gooding, 46, admitted on "The View" that it had been challenging to find time to spend with his wife while he was performing in "The Trip to Bountiful" on Broadway.

    "When you do films, you're away from the family, but I can still fly them in or fly home to see them, so my wife and I have this rule — never go more than three or four weeks without seeing each other," he said. "But I knew this commitment meant that I would be in New York City for a long time… so it's a bit of a pull on that to keep the household

    Selena Gomez has broken up with a lot of her famous friends… on Instagram at least.

    The "Slow Down" singer, 21, unfollowed new pals Kendall and Kylie Jenner over the weekend and deleted photos she had taken with the reality stars as well. Taylor Swift also reportedly got the axe (on Twitter, too) adding fuel to the rumors that the two had a falling out.

    Selena attends Coachella with Kendall and Kylie Jenner (Splash News)While Gomez was still following 14 people on Tuesday on the social media site (including "Spring Breakers" co-star Ashley Benson), by Wednesday that number had dropped to zero.

    Justin Bieber's on-again, off-again love has also been posting some cryptic messages on Instagram.

    On Tuesday, she shared a review of Mary J. Blige's 2007 album "Growing Pains" with the lyrics to the song "Work in Progress."

    One sample lyric: "I got every material thing I could ever need/ I got the love from my fans that adore me/ And I'm grateful/ But love for myself is lacking a little bit/ I have to admit that I'm working on me."

    Ellen Page is doggone obsessed with pet names.

    The "X-Men: Days of Future Past" has brought her apparent favorite pastime — renaming dogs! — to Twitter. And while the 27-year-old merely started doing it for fans, some other celebrities, including Lena Dunham and Kate Mara, were brought in on the action, too.

    Here's the tweet that started it all:

    From there, a flurry of her followers asked to be a part of her "total jerk"-iness by coming up with new names for their four-legged friends:

    Some were even given celeb names:

    Matt Bomer publicly came out as gay two years ago, but he actually married his longtime partner, Simon Halls, well before that.

    The "White Collar" star, 36, has worn wearing a wedding band since 2011, but until now, he's never publicly acknowledged that he's a married man. The duo wed in 2011 and share three sons, 6-year-old twins and an 8-year-old.

    The news broke in this month's issue of Details, while the 36-year-old actor was discussing his latest role in the HBO movie, "The Normal Heart." Bomer revealed that he owes the film's playwright, Larry Kramer, a longtime LGBT activist, for more than just a role – he owes him his marriage. "I wouldn't have a lot of the rights I have today if it wasn't for people like Larry."

    "On some level, Larry probably saved my life," Bomer continued in the Details interview. "He happened to be on set the day DOMA was overturned. In many ways, he's responsible for DOMA being overturned in the first place. He's an Abraham Lincoln figure — he has affected

  • Gwyneth Paltrow (Getty Images)Gwyneth Paltrow's VIP list does not include a man named Nickolaos Gavrilis.

    While in the midst of "consciously uncoupling," the 41-year-old has additional drama to deal with. According to legal papers obtained by "The Insider With Yahoo," Paltrow has secured a temporary restraining order against Gavrilis, a Texas man who has been "stalking and harassing" her on "two continents" and fraudulently gained access to her London home.

    The document was filed in Superior Court of California on April 18 and details a nearly two-year history of alleged stalking. The first incident took place on Sept. 26, 2012, when Gavrilis talked his way into the London home Paltrow and Chris Martin shared with their two children, "falsely claiming he had a business appointment with her."

    According to the longtime head of Paltrow's security team, Terry Abbott, Gavrilis claimed he wrote the scripts for "Iron Man" and "Avengers" and gave them to the

  • Lupita Nyong'o has been named People's Most Beautiful of 2014.

    "It was exciting and just a major, major compliment," the Nyong'o said of her cover. "I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen."

    (People)While the Most Beautiful title is a major honour for any celebrity -- Nyong'o becomes only the fourth woman of colour to claim the cover since the first issue hit shelves in 1990.

    The 2014 list did also include Indian actress Mindy Kaling and African American actresses Gabrielle Union and Kerry Washington, but People's annual issue does not have a particularly strong history of diversity.

    The first woman of colour to appear on the cover was Halle Berry in 2003, who at the time was also the first African American actress to win a lead Oscar, which she won for "Monster's Ball." "My mom always said, 'Beauty is what you do,' " she told People at the time.

    Berry was followed by Jennifer Lopez in 2011 and Beyonce in 2012, who graced the cover shortly after

  • Drew Barrymore and Corey Feldman at the 1989 Academy Awards (Getty Images)
    On Tuesday, Drew Barrymore gave birth to a healthy baby girl named Frankie.

    This is Barrymore’s second child with husband Will Kopelman. Barrymore met the art consultant (and son of former Chanel CEO Arie Kopelman) in 2011, and the pair tied the knot in 2012.

    Before meeting Kopelman, Barrymore was notoriously linked to actor Justin Long, The Strokes’ drummer Fabrizio Moretti and of course, comedian Tom Green, who she was briefly married to from 2001-2002.

    But a decade before Barrymore met Green in 1999, she had a mostly-forgotten relationship with one of the biggest teen heartthrobs of the’80s: Corey Feldman.

    In 1989, 14-year-old Barrymore briefly dated 18-year-old Feldman after they appeared together on an episode of “CBS Schoolbreak Special.”

    Although they only dated for a few months, they made several memorable appearances – and Feldman even showed up to that year’s Oscars with Barrymore on his arm. In Feldman’s memoir “Coreyography” he said that at the time, he was heavily into

  • Avril Lavigne just dropped her "Hello Kitty" music video, and no one is yelling "arigato!" or "kawaii!" in response. In the video, the Canadian pop star repeatedly shouts the Japanese words for "thanks" and "cute" while surrounded by pink cupcakes, rainbow candy, and bored-looking Japanese back-up dancers.

    “I love Hello Kitty. I have an obsession, so I wrote a song called ‘Hello Kitty.’ It’s really fun, it’s about a slumber party and loving the kitty," Lavigne told Yahoo about the song in June. “It has an electronic vibe, which is very different for me, and it’s the first time I’ve experimented in that whole world.”

    But maybe she shouldn't have, as critics were quick to slam the song and the video almost immediately upon its release. Here are the top five reasons people are plugging their ears and eyes when faced with "Hello Kitty":

    1) The appropriation of Japanese culture

    Lavigne's video freely makes use of random Japanese slang and robotic local back-up dancers. It even involves a
