“There was a moment where I felt like after TMZ, maybe a week after that, I felt like the energy levels were low, and I called different family members and was asking, you know, ‘Was Kim thinking about leaving me after TMZ?’ So that was a real conversation,” he told The New York Times.

The writers of a biography about Carrie Fischer, the iconic Star Wars actress who passed away in 2016, has made controversial claims that the actress had two affairs with high-profile musicians.

Film historians Darwin Potter and Danforth Prince have claimed that in 1971, the late actress had affairs with the lead vocalist of Queen, Freddie Mercury, who passed in 1991, and David Bowie, who also passed in 2016.

If the claims made are true, the actress would have been just 17 at the time.

In the biography, it says that Reynolds was introduced to the men during her time at a drama school in London, and first met the musicians at a party with her mother Debbie Reynolds.


Carrie Fisher died of a heart attack in 2016, and is widely remembered for her role in Star Wars.

4. Katherine Heigl apologises for her "disrespectful" cemetery photos on Instagram.

Katherine Heigl stuffed up a bit over the weekend.

While visiting the graves of her brother and grandparents in Buffalo, New York, the Suits and 27 Dresses actress posted photos of herself posing next to other graves and monuments with humorous captions, Huffington Post reports.

This was the 39-year-old's way of seeing the brighter side of a hard situation, however, many of her followers thought the images were insensitive and inappropriate.

Instead of ignoring her followers, Katherine copped the criticism on the chin and decided to apologise.

After deleting the offensive post, the actress shared two Instagram videos to explain her well-meaning intentions.

"I noticed on my Instagram page that the post I posted earlier was getting a lot of reaction and I realised you guys are right and that was not appropriate and was disrespectful and I’ve taken it down,” Katherine said.

"It's kind of a heavy thing to go and visit my loved ones’ graves and I decided to try to find some moments of levity and humour and didn’t realise how inappropriate I was being. So I deeply apologise. I am grateful for your input and for kind of giving me a head’s up when I’m maybe going too far. And thank you for forgiving me."
