Celeb in 5: Wednesday's best entertainment and gossip news.

1. “I can’t explain it.” Lisa Campbell on her son’s claims that he is Princess Diana reincarnated.

In one of the most bizarre stories of 2019, nay, the decade, David and Lisa Campbell’s four-year-old son thinks he’s Princess Diana reincarnated.

No, really.

The story broke in Stellar over the weekend and has us all suitably perplexed, because, honestly, what the actual f*ck.

According to David, it all started with the toddler, Billy, pointing to photos of Princess Diana and exclaiming, “Look! It’s me when I was a princess,” before speaking about his two sons and a brother named John.

Princess Diana’s brother John died before she was born.

“OK, David. Sure. We believe you,” some of us probably thought, unwilling to believe such an undeniably creepy story. I mean, surely this is all an elaborate prank.

But now, his wife Lisa has spoken out, and we’re starting to feel pretty convinced it’s legit.

Billy… is Princess Diana.

“We are the biggest cynics, but for my four-year-old to know about the Queen’s summer residence in Scotland is beyond me explaining it,” Lisa told The Daily Telegraph on Wednesday.

“As a parent, it makes me feel very special, and it also makes me think I’m fourth in line to the throne.”

The mother-of-three, 46, said that while it sounds ‘mental’, there is no explanation as to why their son knows so much about Princess Diana.

One aspect of Billy’s claim that left the couple particularly weirded-out was when Billy accurately described the Royal family’s Balmoral residence to their Scottish friends who were visiting.

And that, dear friends, is one of the many reasons the mere thought of having children terrifies us to our very core.

Good day.

2. “I trust her and she trusts me.” Katy Perry on ending her years long feud with Taylor Swift.

It was the most vicious, snake emoji-filled feud in pop music history.

And now… it’s over.

Katy Perry and Taylor Swift are officially mates again after feuding for several years for reasons nobody really understands but cares about deeply.

Speaking to Kyle and Jackie O this morning, Katy confirmed she was the one who first reached out to bury the hatchet, not with a hatchet embedded in sand, because that would have been weird, but with another "making amends" cliche. An olive branch.

“It was a process. I sent her a literal olive branch and a note apologising for my part in all of it when she started her Reputation tour,” Perry told the duo.

In May of last year, Swift shared the gesture on Instagram, a snippet of the note reading:

“Hey Old Friend... I’ve been doing some reflecting on past miscommunications and hurt feelings between us. I really want to clear the air.”

She also said she was “deeply sorry” for the bad blood between them. (Ha).

So what made Katy decide to put their differences aside?

She told Kyle and Jackie O it just "seemed like the right time".

“I just thought she was about to embark on something new and big and needed the support. And truly as I was finishing my [tour] I realised how much in common we have. Maybe there’s only five other people in the world that can have the same type of conversations and understand where we’re coming from. We should celebrate our commonality and friendship and be there for each other,” she said.

“I started seeing her around, like at the Oscar parties when she was accompanying her boyfriend. I just went up to her and I was like, ‘Hey. It’s been a long time. I think we’ve grown up a little bit. I just want to say that I’m sorry and I’m really here for you, I love you and I hope that we can be friends in the future’.

“We started talking a little bit and trusting each other. Because it’s about trusting.”

The two then baked cookies and hung out with Tay Tay's cats, because of course they did, and that's how world peace was achieved she wound up in Taylor's You Need To Calm Down music video.

We still don't understand the relevance of the burger and fries, but we are happy for them nonetheless.

3. Oh. Leonardo DiCaprio just refused to comment on the infamous Titanic door debate.

Leonardo DiCaprio has an answer for everything, until the Titanic comes up.

In an interview with MTV News discussing Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Leonardo Dicaprio was caught off guard when the interviewer asked him a very off-topic question.

COULD HE HAVE FIT ON THE DOOR WITH ROSE IN TITANIC?

It's a cinematic question that's been on everyone's mind since 1997. Couldn't she have just... moved over? It's a full-sized door and she was draped over only one side of it.

55-year-old actor Brad Pitt pushed Leonardo to respond, asking "Could you, could you have squeezed in there? You could’ve, couldn’t you?" to which DiCaprio jokingly responded "No comment".

Margot Robbie then jumped in, asking: “Did you mention it at the time? Were you like, ‘Should we make the door smaller’” when DiCaprio interjected, “Like I said, I have no comment."

Yep. That pretty much confirms that he could have fit and did not need to die from hypothermia.

4. Modern Family's Sarah Hyland is engaged to Bachelorette star Wells Adams.

Modern Family alum Sarah Hyland has become engaged to her long-term boyfriend Wells Adams, who was a contestant on the US version of The Bachelorette.

The 28-year-old actress announced their engagement on Instagram with photos of the beach-side proposal.

Wells is on one-knee, there's a diamond ring that is blinding, and it all looks very romantic, etc.

"That can't eat, can't sleep, reach for the stars, over the fence, world series kind of stuff," Hyland captioned a series of pictures from the proposal, referencing a quote from the 1995 movie, It Takes Two.

5. GET OUT YOUR ROSES. The Bachelor will be on our TV screens in two weeks.

Stop.

We finally have a date.

The Bachelor 2019 starts Wednesday, July 31 at 7.30pm.

Excitement is an understatement, we’re living for this.

We’re so desperate for our injection of reality TV romance, we’ve been watching the UK versions of trashy reality TV.

(You are filling the void though, Love Island. Many thanks.)

But now the time has come to watch Matt Agnew, the 31-year-old astrophysicist from Melbourne.

And we have tea about the season in our earlier post here. Feast your eyes.
