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

1. “Crosses the line.” Delta Goodrem doesn’t hold back as she shoots down wedding rumours.

Another week, another fake allegation over Delta Goodrem’s marital status.

This week  New Idea might have jumped the gun when they said the 33-year-old was planning a Hawaiian beach wedding with her musician boyfriend Matthew Copley.

They claimed those “closest to the star” received save the date cards to an “intimate bash”, which would be taking place at Pa’ako Cove in Makena in South Maui. But alas, The Voice judge has confirmed this info was completely made up.

Correcting the rumour in an Instagram Story,  Delta set the record straight.

“Hi my friends, whilst you’re all planning what sounds like a really fun surprise wedding for me, I am busy making the new record,” she said.

“But save some cake from this third fantasy wedding this year we have going.

“As I have said a million times, I will let you know,” she added. “I won’t leave you all out of that special day, one day.

“Made up false invitations is really crossing the line I believe, but I’m off to jump in the vocal booth again. Look forward to sharing my life through song soon, love and music, Delta xx.”

Just under a year ago, the singer was also linked to both Seal and the Australian actor, Russell Crowe, before she was forced to also address those rumours with a fantastically sarcastic tweet.

Onwards friends, onwards.

2. Um we’ve been singing the first part of Destiny’s Child’s Say My Name wrong for 20 years.

All this time, we thought Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins was saying "Darkchild NaNa" – but according to the man himself, we're all wrong.

When questioned by a fan on the songs lyrics, Jerkins shared the truth: "I actually said 99 but everybody turned into nana so I just rock with it lol".

Rather than 'Na Na', Jerkins actually said 99 – which happens to be the year the iconic song was released.

Not a sexy pout! ????and no filter can cover it! What started as just a very small red dot on my lip, turns out it was a pre skin cancer that really needs to be removed! ???? While pregnant I can’t, but we’re trying a strong laser which hopefully will do the trick. I’ve always had pale skin but all skin types need a skin cancer check! Only takes a few minutes ????no matter your age! It’s worth it! Thank goodness for you Dr Freeman @theskincentre thank you for looking after me when I was so worried. (This is not a paid ad, just scared me & hope if you’ve put it off this may inspire you to get checked!) It was such a tiny red dot!! #LuckyISawIt #SkinCheck #AussieSun #Bruised #FewDaysButWorthIt

"Not a sexy pout! and no filter can cover it! What started as just a very small red dot on my lip, turns out it was a pre skin cancer that really needs to be removed!"

Charli, who is expecting a baby girl in January, also revealed that she cannot have the mole cut out while pregnant – instead, she will undergo laser treatment.

"Think Dr is being extra cautious of the sensitive area (lip) and while pregnant if we can try laser we'll do that option first," the 38-year-old wrote.

Robinson and her partner Liam Talbot announced their pregnancy back in August while on a babymoon in Fiji.

4. Even Jennifer Aniston had trouble styling her famous ‘The Rachel’ haircut.

It's tough being the face of one of the most iconic hairstyles of our time - let alone one that requires daily blow drys and constant professional styling - and Jennifer Aniston would like it to be known that even she struggled.

Thank goodness for that.

Speaking at the InStyle Awards this week, the actress helped honour her friend and hairstylist, Chris McMillan, who was the man behind the voluminous lob.

And just like anyone who also dared to get the '90s 'do, she loved it at the beginning and then realised how high maintenance the style was.

"You feel beautiful, you feel sexy, you feel alive and then you feel screwed because no one has the ability to do what Chris did to this hair cut," she said in select clips posted on the Instyle Instagram.

"I was totally left with this, like, Greek, frizzy mop on my head, cause I had no idea how to do what he did. Nobody seems to know how to do what Chris does, and I figured out that’s called creating job security, so well done, Chris, on that."

Well done indeed.

5. The moment Jada Pinkett Smith almost walked out on her 20-year marriage to Will Smith.

The mum-of-two told Red Table Talk she had just turned 40 when she realised she didn’t want to stay in her marriage any longer.

“I think for me the turning point in my relationship is when I turned 40,” she explained. “I can’t do this, like this anymore.”

Will then explained that while on the outside it seemed as if his family was thriving, things weren't nearly as idyllic behind-the-scenes.
