Beyonce has severed ties with her father. On a strictly professional basis, that is.

Matthew Knowles will no longer manage his daughter's career, a move Beyonce explained via the following statement:

"I've only parted ways with my father on a business level. He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly. I am grateful for everything he has taught me. I grew up watching both he and my mother manage and own their own businesses. They were hard-working entrepreneurs and I will continue to follow in their footsteps."

Beyonce, Dad

Matthew, who helped launch Destiny's Child with his daughter at the center, acknowledges the split was mutual and says his focus is now on "Music World Entertainment's growing gospel and inspirational music division."

Beyonce will release a new album later this year.

Mila Kunis has joined Darren Aronofsky in the corner of Natalie Portman.

In response to accusations that the Oscar winner scarcely took part in any of the choreography depicted in the movie, Kunis tells Entertainment Weekly: “Natalie danced her ass off. I think it’s unfortunate that this is coming out and taking attention away from [the praise] Natalie deserved and got.”

It's also coming out the week Black Swan comes to DVD, which, ironically, will likely drive interest in the film.

Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman

Kunis adds that she and Portman have been open about the help they received from experienced dancers such as Sarah Lane, who has accused filmmakers of covering up her role.

"She did do every ounce of every one of her dances,” Kunis says of her co-star. “[Lane] wasn’t used for everything. It was more like a safety net. If Nat wasn’t able to do something, you’d have a safety net. The same thing that I had - I had a double as a safety net. We all did. No one ever denied it.”

Following last night's Dancing with the Stars performance show, Carrie Ann Inaba is loving her some Chris Jericho.

Hines Ward, meanwhile, is teaching his partner some new lingo and coming through with a solid version of the Quickstep.

But did Romeo deliver the best routine of week two? Yes, according to Len Goodman. The actor/rapper joined Jericho and Ward in earning 23 points for his latest attempt. He has garnered 42 to date and will likely be around for awhile.

Check out Romeo and Chelsea Hightower in action below. Think they have a chance to go all the way?

Simply put, Carrie Ann Inaba said last night: "I'm loving me some Chris Jericho right now."

The Dancing with the Stars judge was reacting to the WWE wrestler's version of the Quickstep, as Jericho and Cheryl Burke were one of three pairings to garner 23 points on week two.

With a total of 42 after two routines, there's a very good chance Chris and Cheryl will return to shake, grind and move some more next Monday. Think they deserve to do so? Check out their performance below:

Tight, Quickstep, player!

Prior to performing for fans and judges on last night's Dancing with the Stars, Hines Ward taught partner Kym Johnson some slang. Did it result in what she might now refer to as a "tight" performance? Yes, according to Carrie Ann, who raved: "That was amazing. I loved it."

Watch now and see if you agree with the praise:

At the time of her passing, Elizabeth Taylor may have possessed the most elegant jewelry collection on the planet.

So, what will happen to a set that's been valued at over $150 million? Sources tell People it will likely go to auction at Christie's in New York.

“She had the most amazing eye,” says Peter Sedghi, President/CEO of Luxury Jewels in Beverly Hills. “When you would show her stones, she would tell you the origin, if it’s good quality, bad quality, where it came from."

Taylor collected all kinds of stones, but she had a unique place in her heart for diamonds. They dated back to her life as an iconic actress.

“The studios, in order to make her happy, they’d always give her jewelry," says friend Lorraine Schwartz. "She grew up collecting it. People always gave her gifts... it was something that she learned to love.”

Among the star's most treasured items? A 69-carat Taylor-Burton diamond, purchased for over $1 million; and a 33-carat Krupp diamond, given to her by fifth husband, Richard Burton.

After two weeks of Dancing with the Stars, The Karate Kid remains a knuckle above the competition.

Even a mediocre Jive on last night's performance show wasn't enough to knock Ralph Macchio from the top spot, as his 21-point effort, combined with last week's impressive Foxtrot, leaves him with a total of 45, good for first place on the overall leaderboard.

We'll also see Kirstie Alley next week, no doubt. She and Maksim Chmerkovskiy may have only garnered a score of 20 for their Quickstep, but they concluded the routine with an improvised kiss and left viewers buzzing. Watch below and then check out all the scores from the evening.

The violent side of Jenelle Evans wasn't the only reason this Teen Mom 2 star gave a vicious beatdown to Britany Truett last week. She was also pushed into her enemy. Literally.

Now, Brittany Maggard, the girl who gave Jenelle the shove that propelled her toward Truett, has spoken out about her motivation behind the incident. Give her credit for honest, at least.

"Jenelle wanted to go and fight Britany because of something with her man," Maggard tells TMZ. "She was scared and wouldn't go fight by herself so I went to help her out."

Jenelle Evans, Mother

Fights with her mom are suddenly the least of Jenelle Evans' worries.

Added Maggard, who has been arrested along with Evans and Truett: "I instigated it, but what the hell are we supposed to do? I wanted to see them fight!

"I'm pissed, though, because I went down to help her out, we both ended up in jail, she got bailed out before me and when I called her to get me out, she didn't come."

The nerve of some people. Some majorly troubled, in-need-of-assistance, by-no-means-worthy-of-the-fame/money-that-accompanies-a-reality-show people.
