Idle gossip & unconfirmed rumors:
DJ CALVIN HARRIS is a busy guy. Sources tell RadarOnline.com that he's connected with TOM HIDDLESTON and would like to have a tete-a-tete about their mutual ex-girlfriend, TAYLOR SWIFT. Meanwhile, insiders also say the 32-year-old hitmaker isn't hung up on the superstar and has been enjoying secret hookups with JENNIFER LOPEZ in Las Vegas! (Lee)
It's apparently over after just six weeks for JUSTIN BIEBER and SOFIA RICHIE.

Looking for a fixer-upper in Malibu, California? You're in luck, because LEONARDO DiCAPRIO's three-bedroom, two-bath house on the beach is on sale for just... $10.9 million bucks.
