Were the alleged nude photos of Demi Lovato stolen from Wilmer Valderrama's phone and then leaked to the public? Did Simon Cowell pay off the ex-husband of Lauren Silverman as part of the Silvermans' divorce settlement? And did Lauren Silverman also sleep with Simon Cowell's brother Nicholas? Is One Direction's Harry Styles faking his romance with Cara Delevingne? Has Mario Lopez been cheating on his wife?
There have been many blind items (which are gossip items that do not name names) that have appeared in media over the past several weeks, and many people are guessing that these "X Factor" stars are the answers to the blind items.
Here are the blind items that people are guessing are about "X Factor" stars:
Crazy Days and Nights/Entertainment Lawyer (June 3, 2013)
This B- list celebrity who is a little weight challenged got hammered over the weekend on vodka. Combined with her Adderall she got woozy and slammed her head into a glass table. Doctor came over to give her stitches.
Possible guess: Khloe Kardashian ( former co-host of "The X Factor" U.S. host)
Blind Gossip (June 6, 2013)
Just a few weeks ago, this on-again, off-again young celebrity couple was acting as if everything was on again. They were seen together, all cute and cuddly and romantic. Sweet, right? And, of course, it’s purely coincidental timing that they got back together again just before she had a new project to promote, and that he is being all supportive of her new project! The truth is that they are not really together again. They actually broke up. In fact, she is dating someone else. And that someone else just happens to be… female. Yes, it turns out that our girl is secretly bisexual! No, it’s not Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. In this case, he is older than she.
Crazy Days and Nights/Entertainment Lawyer (June 26, 2013)
This former talent show winner has been shacking up with her former mentor. He says that he can get her back to her A list glory that disappeared in what seems like an instant. So far all she has been doing is taking care of his needs when he is not getting them taken care of by some of the other women he has promised the same thing to.
Possible guess: Leona Lewis (winner of "The X Factor" U.K. in 2006) and Simon Cowell
Crazy Days and Nights/Entertainment Lawyer (June 29, 2013)
This former A list "singer," who later became a reality star and punchline to drinking jokes was at a party last week when she got a little drunk and decided to try and do some twerking. She is aging and not as blessed with the dance moves she once was so then went to a strip tease, but she had so many layers of Spanx and things bound together to keep from splitting that it became laughable at how long it was taking her.
Possible guess: Paula Abdul (former "X Factor" U.S. judge)
Underground Buzz (July 11, 2013)
This couple has endured cheating allegations for all the years they've been together, but is there something to it this time? An attack on the paparazzi never happened before with the other allegations. Where there's smoke there's fire.
Possible guess: Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom
Popbitch (July 11, 2013)
Which popstar-turned-reality-TV-judge refused to speak to one of his associates because he didn't want to be told what to do by a woman?
Possible guess: Gary Barlow and Sharon Osbourne ("The X Factor" U.K. judges
Blind Gossip (July 15, 2013)
She garners huge amounts of publicity about her fake sobriety and about being a positive role model for young girls. What a liar. We know that she was blowing piles of snow up her nose last week. Yes, she calls it "snow". Because that just makes it so much cuter!
Possible guess: Demi Lovato ("The X Factor" U.S. judge)
Crazy Days and Nights/Entertainment Lawyer (July 22, 2013)
This A list reality star/host/former really bad actor had no intentions of settling down but found a woman who was willing to not only put up with his cheating, but the first woman who did not look at him funny when he wanted her to wear a device and do something to him which most women frowned upon. He used to have to pay for it, and now he gets it for free.
Possible guess: Mario Lopez ("The X Factor" U.S. host)
Crazy Days and Nights/Entertainment Lawyer (July 23, 2013)
This former A list celebrity/"singer" who transitioned into reality television before dropping off the face of the earth still has A list name recognition. She is also aging a bit and still goofy. She also would like the world to know she has a new boyfriend. Unfortunately it is very expensive for her to show him off because he charges by the hour. Apparently our former A lister makes sure she gets her money worth, and almost every hour too.
Possible guess: Paula Abdul
Blind Gossip (July 24, 2013)
Oh those boy banders and their "girlfriends"! Yes, the word "girlfriends" belongs in quotation marks. These "girlfriends" seem to really know how to play the game! Give the people a little public hand holding, a little public smooch, a photo op, and then go away. You see, just because a "couple" is traveling the U.S.A. doesn’t mean that they are traveling together. It’s a big country, kids, and much of the time they are not in the same city or state… or even traveling in the same direction! Especially not this couple. They look like they are together. But they really aren’t. And they are very tired of each other. Lots of bickering and complaining taking place in private. They won’t make it to the end of the year as a "couple."
Possible guess: Louis Tomlinson of One Direction and Eleanor Calder
Crazy Days and Nights/Entertainment Lawyer (July 27, 2013)
Sometime in the next week there is going to be a 30 second cell phone recording hitting the internet which shows the celebrity husband of this A list reality star having sex with a woman who is most definitely not his wife. The recording is very very recent. The recording is grainy but there is no mistaking who it is.
Possible guess: Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom
Blind Gossip (July 29, 2013)
You may be sweltering in the summer sun, but these two boy banders are already dreaming about winter. That’s because they have started planning their first winter vacation together after one of the boys breaks up with his faux girlfriend! One of them wants to hit the slopes and go skiing. The other wants to go to a beach somewhere, where they can frolic in the surf and splash water at each other. It’s actually a very cute disagreement. We’ll just be happy to see them together, enjoying each other’s company. However, if they do choose the beach, we do wonder what kind of bathing suits they will wear. One prefers Speedos, while the other is inclined to be a bit more modest. We say: Forget modest! Just have fun being yourselves and being with each other!
Possible guess: Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson of One Direction
Blind Gossip (July 31, 2013)
We have LOTS of fascinating information for you about the married pregnant socialite who has recently been thrust into the headlines! She has a long and rather sordid reputation for being a gold digger. Her husband’s parents were so disgusted that he was marrying her that they didn’t even show up to their wedding. She cheated on her husband many, many times during their marriage… including the night before their wedding! Although her husband is extremely wealthy, she won’t be scoring big in the divorce. He knew of her propensity for cheating, and their pre-nuptial agreement is ironclad. We saved the best for last: She wasn’t only sleeping with a music mogul. She was also sleeping with… his brother! He lives in London and the two carried on an intercontinental affair for years. The brother even stayed with her in her New York home at The Savoy while her husband was away on business. Now that’s brazen!
Possible guess: Simon Cowell (mogul), Lauren Silveman (wife), Andrew Silverman (husband)
Crazy Days and Nights/Entertainment Lawyer (Aug. 10, 2013)
Out shopping this week, this B+ list celebrity/talk show host/manager was not happy with the level of service she was receiving. As in, no one was paying her any attention because she was not actually doing anything but walking through the store. As soon as she saw someone, she stopped them and said the infamous don't you know who I am bit and demanded that someone walk around the store with her in case she decided to buy something. 45 minutes later she walked out without buying anything. NOT Kris Jenner.
Possible guess: Sharon Osbourne
Blind Gossip (Aug. 16, 2013)
There has been a settlement! No, we’re not talking about the settlement between The Husband and The Wife. We’re talking about a much bigger and more interesting settlement… the one between The Husband and The Star. The Star is paying off the cuckolded Husband of one of his many paramours to keep from getting dragged into their divorce proceedings. He had to. If he hadn’t, the details of his questionable lifestyle would have provided fodder for the tabloids for months to come, and would have seriously damaged his professional reputation. Yes, this is more about protecting The Star than it is about protecting The Wife.
In exchange for a large amount of money, The Husband will specifically refrain from talking about five main areas of controversy that were of concern to The Star: Money: The obscene amounts of money The Star makes and spends on everything, and how and where he invests his money. Business: The details of the business deals in which The Star has participated, and some questionable actions he took to close those deals.
Drugs: The extensive use of drugs – especially cocaine – by The Star and The Wife. Sex: The Star’s entire sex life, including, but not limited to, sexual preferences, sexual proclivities, participation in threesomes and orgies, swinger parties, involvement of other celebrities, sexually transmitted diseases, and abortions. Brother: The Star’s Brother, who had a long-time affair with The Wife before The Star did. We do not know the exact amount of the settlement, but our source told us that it’s "Over 20." That’s over $20 million, folks. That’s the price of silence.
Possible guess: Simon Cowell (The Star), Andrew Silverman (The Husband), Lauren Silverman (The Wife), Nicholas Cowell (The Brother)
Blind Gossip (Aug. 16, 2013)
Fans are totally freaking out about seeing this young male star shopping in a jewelry store with his girlfriend. Calm yourselves! When rich and famous people buy engagement rings, they do so behind closed doors in a private consultation with a jeweler who is known for wedding rings. When rich and famous people who are dating get publicly photographed looking at rings at the counter of a fashion jewelry store… it’s a publicity stunt. It worked, too. After all, it got your attention, didn’t it?
Possible guess: Louis Tomlinson of One Direction and Eleanor Calder
Crazy Days and Nights/Entertainment Lawyer (Aug. 23, 2013)
Zac Efron and this B+ list celebrity/singer hooked up. As crazy as she is now, she told him that she was a virgin at the time. He is totally not her type but she had a crush and used everyone she knew in the industry to get his number.
Possible guess: Demi Lovato
Blind Gossip (Aug. 23, 2013)
You probably know by now that there are some nude photos of a young female pop singer that are being shopped around the Internet. We have the photos. Yes, it’s Poppy. Yes, she’s naked. You’ll probably see them soon enough. After you’re done staring at them, you’ll want to hear the interesting backstory about how those naked photos "leaked" onto the Internet. It involves a whole bunch of celebrities and a couple of fame whores. That "leak" was no accident, and three people are going to go down for it.
There is a group of young Hollywood celebrities who we’ll call The Seven Celebrity Dwarfs. What the Brat Pack was to the 1980s, the Seven Celebrity Dwarfs are to this generation. They are all good-looking, young performers who have worked together, partied together, and/or dated each other at some point.
Let’s meet six of The Seven Celebrity Dwarfs:
Poppy is a cute, female pop singer. She’s had some struggles in the last few years, but has still managed to put out some hit songs and land a solid TV gig.
Lucky is Poppy’s ex-boyfriend. He’s a cute boy bander who isn’t shy about stripping down for the camera. Although Lucky and Poppy broke up a few years ago, they are still friendly. Lucky has dated half the young starlets in Hollywood, including Clingy, a very famous singer.
Clingy is a pretty, female pop artist. She writes her own stuff. That stuff is usually about one of her ex-boyfriends. Clingy and Lucky had an odd breakup during a short telephone call a few years ago. Of course, Clingy wrote a song about it.
Sassy is Clingy’s best friend. Sassy is gorgeous, sweet, and a true triple threat. She is currently on a successful tour and has a pop song near the top of the charts.
Twerky is another multi-talented performer. She had a hit TV series, and her own song that is currently on the top of the charts. Twerky has been quite controversial lately and has taken some real risks in trying to make herself look more mature. Twerky is best friends with Poppy. Flexy is Lucky’s brother. He is also a singer and an actor. Flexy has dated Sassy and Twerky. So…
Poppy and Twerky are besties.
Clingy and Sassy are besties.
Lucky and Flexy are brothers.
Lucky has dated Poppy and Clingy.
Flexy has dated Sassy and Twerky.
Got it so far? Good. There was an awards show last week, and most of the Seven Celebrity Dwarfs were there. Before the show, everyone was saying hello to each other… and that’s where the trouble started. Most of it was caused by Lucky’s current girlfriend, a drug-addicted nobody from another country who we’ll call Junkie. Junkie is only dating Lucky because she wants to be famous. She is too old for Lucky and a bad influence on him.
Junkie was looking to score celebrity friends for herself… and a celebrity boyfriend for her sister, who we’ll call Horrie. Junkie proceeded to launch herself at celebrity after celebrity in her quest. Junkie first spied Chappy – a cute, British boy bander with a thick head of hair – and begged Lucky for an introduction. Lucky and Chappy are friends, and Chappy came over to give him a bro hug. Then Junkie practically threw herself at Chappy! She hugged him and repeatedly tried to kiss him. She draped herself over him and told him that ever since he had dumped Clingy, that she wanted to fix him up with her sister.
Chappy was terribly uncomfortable during this entire exchange and tried to pull himself away. He doesn’t like talking about his relationship with Clingy, and he really didn’t want this strange girl kissing and hanging on him! He practically had to pry her arms from around his neck, and nearly tripped running away from her.
Junkie then tried to ingratiate herself with Twerky. She pretended that they were old friends and tried hanging all over her. Twerky was more skillful than Chappy about running away from Junkie, complaining to one of the other Dwarfs, "Who is that girl with Lucky? Who the f*ck does she think she is? Why is she getting all grabby with me?"
Then it was time for everyone to be seated. Poppy and Flexy (who are just friends) performed at the show, and they were seated in one of the front rows. Sassy was next to them. Lucky and Junkie sat in the row directly behind them. It was a really awkward seating arrangement, because everyone had dated everyone.
Lucky used to date Poppy and was now dating Junkie. Flexy used to date Sassy, who was best friends with Clingy (who had dated Lucky). Like we said… awkward. But all the Dwarfs have been performers for many years, and they all know the drill. Smile, be cordial, be professional. Junkie didn’t get the memo. She didn’t care who had dated who. She just wanted to ingratiate herself with as many celebrities as possible.
Junkie totally sucked up to Poppy and Sassy during the event, cooing over them and telling them how talented and pretty they were and how she hoped that they would become the best of friends. Junkie seemed to have this idea in her head that the two brothers and all their ex-girlfriends and her should be a group. Oh, and that they should invite Clingy along, too! "We should really ask Clingy to hang out with us, too. After all, everybody knows that Clingy lost her virginity to Lucky, so we all really ought to be friends!" Jaws dropped.
We don’t know exactly how many people heard Junkie’s comment about how Clingy lost her virginity, but the disclosure certainly surprised them! After all, at the time that they were dating, Lucky was wearing a purity ring! And everyone assumed that Clingy had lost her V-card to a wondrous older singer! Given this revelation, it’s no wonder that Clingy was so upset about her breakup with Lucky in a phone call that only lasted a few seconds!
Anyway, Junkie continued blabbering on and insisting that they all hang out together. Sassy – who is besties with Clingy – gritted her teeth and sweetly blew off Junkie. Poppy also politely declined, saying that she was going to be traveling out of the country to do some charity work. Junkie perked up. She asked Poppy if Poppy’s boyfriend – another celebrity – was going to be going with her on the trip. Poppy said no. Uh, oh.
Now it’s time to introduce the final member of the Seven Celebrity Dwarfs: Slimy. Slimy is Poppy’s current boyfriend. Slimy is an actor who is best known for his role on a sitcom that ended several years ago. You might also know him as a hard-partying skirt-chaser and the ex-boyfriend of several Hollywood starlets.
The list of things we dislike about Slimy is long. There was the pregnancy scare he had with a 15-year-old cast member on his former television show. There are the numerous girls that he introduced to "the back door" (his preferred style since there are no more pregnancy scares that way). There is the closet full of costumes that he asks his conquests wear that he never washes the stains out of between uses. There is the occasional bruising smack that he will dole out if a girl irritates him. And, of course, there is the alcohol and the drugs and the cheating and the… like we said, the list is long. Slimy is way too old for Poppy and a bad influence on her.
Frankly, Slimy is bad for everyone. In other words, he was perfect for Junkie’s sister, Horrie! Like Junkie, Horrie is a nobody who wants to be famous. So Junkie and Horrie hatched an evil plan. While Poppy was out of the country, Junkie would fix up Slimy with Horrie. Then they would then leak to the tabloids that Slimy cheated on Poppy! They could get Poppy and Slimy to break up! Then Horrie and Slimy could date, and Horrie could become famous! Poppy left on her trip… and Slimy promptly slept with Horrie. Big surprise there. In fact, Slimy hooked up with Horrie for several nights in a row last week.
Of course, Poppy had absolutely no idea what was going on! She thought that Slimy – who sent her such loving public messages on Twitter while she was away – was being a good loyal boyfriend! But then something unexpected happened. During one of their nights together, Slimy showed Horrie his cell phone. Slimy’s cell phone just happened to contain some very personal photos.
"OMG! There are naked photos of Poppy on your phone!"
"Everybody has naked photos of their celebrity girlfriends on their phones."
Slimy told Horrie about Pantsy, a very famous young pop singer who has trouble keeping his pants up.
"Pantsy has naked pics of Sassy on his phone. But he would never release them, because she would never speak to him again."
Releasing naked photos could break up a couple? What a great idea! Horrie called Junkie and told her about the photos of Poppy. Junkie instructed Horrie on how to steal the photos. They had to act quickly, while Poppy was still out of the country. Within 24 hours, Junkie and Horrie had made a collage of the photos, and began shopping them around. They knew that even if they couldn’t sell the photos, the the gossip blogs would pick up on the story. Their first stop was a gossip blog to which Junkie had frequently sent pieces of gossip about her boyfriend Lucky and his family and friends.
Of course, they picked up the story right away. It was all perfect. Junkie and Horrie – the two evil Fame-Seeking Sisters – could ensure the breakup of Poppy and Slimy, not just by disclosing Slimy’s philandering, but by leaking private photos of Poppy as well! Poppy would be seen as a slut, Poppy would think that Slimy did it, and they would definitely break up! Then Junkie could date Lucky, and Horrie could date Slimy! What a beautiful foursome they would make! What great photo ops! Junkie and Horrie would be famous! Two sisters who date two celebrities! Famous, famous, famous!
Except… we’ve just spoiled their little plan. Even if those photos get published (and they probably will), everyone will now know that Slimy cheated on Poppy, and that the leaked photos came from his phone. They will also know that Junkie and Horrie are the devious witches behind the photo leak. They used Lucky, they used Slimy, and they tried to screw over Poppy to claw their way to fame. Slimy, Junkie, and Horrie: The wrath and the fans of multiple celebrities are about to rain down on you. You’d better run and hide. Run and hide.

Crazy Days and Nights/Entertainment Lawyer (Sept. 1, 2013)
This A+ list celebrity/singer? got into trouble a few weeks ago for trying to have sex with her boyfriend. That's a no no. It's part of the deal he signs up for. Unlike the previous boyfriend, he needs to make sure he doesn't get caught having sex with others.
Possible guess: Britney Spears

Possible guess: Khloe Kardashian
Blind Gossip (Sept. 11, 2013)
You are going to be shocked when you see this former superstar in the next couple of months! Reports from the set of her latest project are that she is amazingly healthy… and fit… and mentally sharp! We can’t even remember the last year that she was all three of those thing at the same time. She is so healthy and fit that the body double and the stunt person that were hired to sub in her for on certain shots have been sitting on the sidelines during the entire shoot!
She is doing all her own work, and she is performing like she did during her peak. She is totally in charge on this production. No, she’s not being a bitch. She just knows what she wants, and she has been ordering people around with a confident smile. The crew reports that she shows up prepared and energetic every single day, and that she is genuinely happy, creative, encouraging and quite funny. They are really loving working with her. In fact, she is so sharp and mentally fit that we are pleased to exclusively report that a certain legal arrangement that was designed to protect her is being dissolved soon! She is clearly ready for a professional comeback, and ready to take charge of her own life again.
Possible guess: Britney Spears
Crazy Days and Nights/Entertainment Lawyer (Sept. 13, 2013)

Possible guess: Harry Styles of One Direction and Cara Delevingne
Possible guess: Britney Spears
Blind Gossip (Sept. 13, 2013)
Hearts are breaking all over the world since this cute young male performer has been seen on a few dates with this pretty girl! We want to explain to his fans (he has a lot more fans than she does) exactly what’s going on behind the scenes. Yes, it’s totally a public relations gig. Each of them gets to be seen with a famous, hot, desirable member of the opposite sex, and the press gets pics of a gorgeous young couple at the peak of their fame.
Each of them also has their reputation boosted as a desirable heterosexual celebrity. It works for both of them, the two of them don’t mind hanging out together, and their respective teams are happy with the arrangement. In fact, this relationship is a lot like his famous relationship last year with that very pretty singer. No, we don’t know if he’s become a better actor since then!
Possible guess: Harry Styles of One Direction (cute young male performer), Cara Delevingne (pretty girl), Taylor Swift (very pretty singer)
