Tom Cruise is reportedly gearing up for a fight.

Having been blindsided last week by his spouse, he is ready for a custody battle over Suri Cruise and preparing to counter-file for divorce in California.

According to celebrity gossip sources, Cruise wants to ensure that Katie doesn't get sole custody of Suri, which she asked for in her New York filing.

Cruise's camp says the divorce can only take place in New York if the marriage occurred there or the spouse has been living there continuously.

Despite the couple owning an N.Y. apartment deeded in her name, he will argue that both live in L.A. and she doesn't meet N.Y. residency requirements.

This is significant as N.Y. courts are perceived as much more likely to award sole custody in a contentious divorce than their California counterparts.

An insider added of Cruise's game plan: "There is absolutely no way that he is going to let Katie have sole custody. The lines are being drawn."

The somewhat surprising Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes divorce came out of nowhere, allegedly prompted by her fear of Scientology groups corrupting Suri.

Cissy Houston and Mariah Carey were at the forefront of an emotional tribute to Whitney Houston at last night's BET Awards.

The latter kicked off the 19-minute event, recalling stories about Whitney - who tragically overdosed and died in February - and told the audience: "I miss my friend. I miss hearing her voice and laughter."

Monica and Brandy also took to the stage, singing multiple Whitney hits, while former Waiting to Exhale co-stars Angela Bassett, Lela Rochon and Loretta Devine honored their late friend.

But it was Cissy who brought tears to the eyes of all in attendance. She sang a version of "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and A-listers such as Beyonce and Soulja Boy were caught on camera crying.

Watch the entire tribute for yourself:

CNN's Anderson Cooper recently admitted for the first time, in the context of an email exchange with The Daily Beast's Andrew Sullivan, that he is gay.

Sullivan, who is also gay, asked Cooper for comment on an EW story about gay people in public life coming out differently than in years past.

As the visibility of gay people - high-profile or not - is at the core of individuals, the deceasing newsworthiness of such revelations is encouraging.

Anderson Cooper Gay

Asked for his take on the subject, Cooper told Sullivan - and gave him the go-ahead to print - what he's never matter-of-factly said before:

"The fact is, I'm gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud."

On why he hasn't made it an issue before now, he says:

"Although my job puts me in the public eye, I have tried to maintain some level of privacy in my life. Part of that has been for purely personal reasons."

"I think most people want some privacy for themselves and people they are close to."

"But I've also wanted to retain privacy for professional reasons. Since I started as a reporter 20 years ago, I've often found myself in some very dangerous places."

"For my safety and the safety of those I work with, I try to blend in as much as possible, and prefer to stick to my job of telling other people’s stories, and not my own."

Marcus Jordan has shot an airball with the law.

The 21-year old son of former NBA legend Michael Jordan was arrested early Sunday morning outside the Embassy Suites in Omaha, Nebraska after police spotted him arguing with two women.

Marcus Jordan Mug Shot

According to various reports, it took a multitude of cops to subdue Jordan, actually placing him in handcuffs after he refused to cooperate.

He was the arrested for resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and obstructing.

Marcus plays basketball at the University of Central Florida and it's unclear how this brush with the law will affect his standing there. But this much is certain: this is not an example of how to be like Mike.

PETA is ripping fashion designer duo Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen for using animal pelts to create their latest backpack, which retails for around $17,000.

That's not a typo.

“What the Olsens lack in creativity, they try to make up for with shock value,” the animal rights group said in a statement regarding the pricey accessory.

PETA Hates Olsen Twins

PETA protesters (seen here in 2008) have gone after the Olsen Twins for years.

The backpack is a patchwork design made of various animal furs, a fact that has PETA livid with the twosome to the point of bitter name-calling.

"If it looks like a troll and acts like a troll, it's probably a Trollsen Twin - or somebody wearing one of their new totes," the group continues.

PETA calls on consumers not to purchase the products "which are made from the fur and skins of innocent animals" or anything by the Olsens.

Ashley Olsen and Mary Kate Olsen, who jointly run The Row, captured the Womenswear Designer of the Year honors at the CFDA Fashion Awards in June.

They should probably be on the lookout for paint can assaults.

Following Sunday night's BET Awards, rumors were running rampant that Chris Brown was arrested backstage for illegally possessing a firearm.

Speculation surfaced that the R&B star was going to great lengths to protecting himself against possible retaliation from Drake and Meek Mill.

In the wake of the Chris Brown-Drake fight last month, and given that we're dealing with Chris Brown in general, it didn't seem far fetched.

But it's not true.

Chris Brown Twit Pic

Brown, who was among the BET Awards winners last night, was out and about celebrating last night, completely arrest- and controversy-free.

A rep for the singer also confirms there was no altercation of any kind Sunday.

Incidentally, Drake wasn't at the show, and Meek Mill, who was also involved in the NYC nightclub brawl, was not at the BET after party with Chris.

Consider the rumor debunked, and chalk it up to the crazy Twitterverse.

In other, less controversial Brown news, he Tweeted condolences to his ex this weekend after Rihanna's grandmother died. That was nice of him.

With Robin Roberts scheduled to go on leave in August - in order to battle a rare blood disorder - ABC is busy lining up a slate of Good Morning America replacements.

Temporary replacements, that is.

Good Morning America Panel

Roberts will soon be off the air for a number of weeks as she undergoes a bone marrow transplant to deal with her diagnosis of myelodysplastic syndrome, and TMZ reports GMA producers have approached the following stars to sit in for a week at a time alongside George Stephanopoulos:

  • Diane Sawyer
  • Charlie Gibson
  • Barbara Walters
  • Chris Cuomo
  • Connie Chung
  • Joan Lunden

Look for names to be finalized the closer we get to Robin's departure date, and also look for Roberts to hopefully be gone for fewer than four months. With the illness detected early, the journalist's prognosis is reportedly "very good."

We couldn't be happier to hear it.

Former NBA star Eric Williams allegedly got Tavia Serena Cannon pregnant while he was still married to Basketball Wives' Jennifer Williams in 2011.

Tavia now wants Eric to pony up the child support ASAP, filing a Complaint for Support in Pennsylvania last week, citing the October 2011 birth.

Cannon says she makes just $300/week babysitting and wants Eric Williams to fork over some cash and medical coverage for their love child, STAT.

Eric and Jennifer Williams

Here's the interesting part. At the time the baby was conceived, Eric was still married to Jennifer Williams, who didn't file for divorce until June.

The Basketball Wives star apparently had NO CLUE about the child until Cannon filed for support; their divorce is still pending in a N.J. court, too.

Williams, who is now dating Al Reynolds, and who has reportedly just been fired from Basketball Wives, surely won't look kindly upon the revelation.

Eric Williams has yet to comment on the child support situation.

Matt Lauer will soon head to London in order to cover the Summer Olympics for The Today Show and, according to a new report, wife Annette Roque will attend the event along with her three kids.

A fun family vacation? Not exactly.

Matt Lauer, Wife

Sources tell Radar Online that Roque continues to be wary of her husband, specifically his relationship with reporter Natalie Morales, and that she's only headed overseas to keep "tabs" on Lauer.

"Annette and the kids will all be going to the Olympics so she can keep very close tabs on Matt," an insider says of the couple. "Matt and his family will be staying at a different hotel than the rest of the cast and crew. Annette generally doesn't like to accompany Matt when he travels for work, but... [she] has made no bones about the fact she will be keeping close tabs on Matt."

Roque actually filed for divorce from Lauer in 2006 - while pregnant with the couple's third child - but then recanted.

An earlier story claimed Roque once again would have filed if Morales had been named new co-anchor of Today. The gig instead has gone to Savannah Guthrie.
