1. Things are looking up for Brad Pitt.
Following a rare sighting at the Gersh Agency's pre-Oscar event last Thursday, a source tells E! News that the father-of-six is in a good place since his split from Angelina Jolie, finally coming to terms with the break-up.
"The separation was brutal and a very sad time in his life," the source says. "[Brad] made some important changes and is much better off now. He is happier and healthier. He has an active social life and has rekindled old friendships. He goes out to dinner a lot and enjoys being out doing different things."
2. Boyfriend’s Tinder sends woman into jealous rage with samurai sword
A Washington woman allegedly took a swipe at her boyfriend after she found the Tinder dating app on his phone.
Emily Javier, 30, reportedly slashed her boyfriend with a samurai sword early Saturday in a violent act of vengeance when she suspected he was unfaithful, according to The Oregonian.
Police said the bloody assault at their Camas home left 29-year-old Alex Lovell fighting for his life.
“The only motive our detectives can come up with is its jealousy based,” Camas police officer Debrah Riedle told news station KOIN. “The victim is not confirming that but everything the suspect told us leads up to believe her motive was jealousy.”
Javier told authorities that several discoveries, including his Tinder account and scratches on his back, led her to start plotting a grisly attack on her boyfriend.
The final straw was when Javier, whose hair is dyed green, found a red hair in their shower drain, according to The Oregonian.
Furious, the jilted girlfriend allegedly purchased a samurai sword from the mall and waited for an opportunity to attack, police said. When Lovell returned home Saturday night, authorities said he reportedly ignored his girlfriend, which further enraged her.
Javier waited for her boyfriend to fall asleep and repeatedly slashed his throat with the samurai sword, police said.
“I was trying to kill him,” she told authorities, according to The Oregonian.
Eventually, Javier called 911 saying that she thought she killed her boyfriend. Officers arrived at the home to find the 30-year-old woman outside pleading for help.
“I just stabbed him!” Javier said, according to a probable-cause affidavit. “You guys need to help him!”
Authorities discovered Lovell inside with “injuries all over his body” and curled up in the fetal position, KOIN reported. He was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.
3. Here's why some Amazon Echo users have heard Alexa randomly laughing
Amazon has finally revealed why Alexa is randomly laughing, creeping out Echo users. BuzzFeed first reported earlier this week that Amazon Echo users were surprised to hear their devices laughing at random. After confirming the company was working on a fix, Amazon revealed on Wednesday why Alexa was laughing at random.
"In rare circumstances, Alexa can mistakenly hear the phrase 'Alexa, laugh,'" a spokesperson said in an email. "We are changing that phrase to be 'Alexa, can you laugh?' which is less likely to have false positives, and we are disabling the short utterance 'Alexa, laugh.' We are also changing Alexa’s response from simply laughter to 'Sure, I can laugh' followed by laughter." Amazon says the fix has already been rolled out.
This confirms the theory that Alexa was falsely triggered and not possessed. While it's promising the company issued a fix, that probably isn't enough to comfort users who allegedly heard Alexa laughing without a sound or in the middle of the night.Here are a few examples people managed to capture when they asked Alexa to repeat the last thing she said, just so you can hear just how creepy it is.
4. Tyga's Comment On Kim Kardashian's Instagram Is Seriously So Shady
Tyga's comment on Kim Kardashian's Instagram shows he's here to school Kim... and maybe throw just a teeny bit of shade.
Apparently, though, her caption had a bit of a typo, and who other than our good friend Tyga came in to give Kim K some spelling lessons. Kim's original caption said, "Train ? Station in Keyoto ??," but the Japanese city is actually spelled "Kyoto." And guess who was there to call out Kim's typo?
Yup, that would be Tyga.
5. Meghan Markle 'secretly baptized' ahead of May wedding to Prince Harry
Meghan Markle has been secretly baptised ahead of her marriage to Prince Harry.
The former 'Suits' actress was welcomed into the Anglican church in an "intimate service" on Tuesday, which was performed by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, using holy water from the River Jordan, which was said to have come from the royal Family font.
Meghan is believed to have asked the Archbishop to preside over the ceremony because they have formed a close bond since she moved to the UK.
According to the Daily Mail, Meghan, 36, and her 33-year-old husband-to-be were joined at the service at Windsor Castle's Chapel Royal by Harry's father, Prince Charles, and stepmother Duchess Camilla, as well as a small number of other guests.
In accordance with tradition, Meghan had two sponsors, the equivalent of godparents, to support her in the baptism, with one described as a "close girlfriend".
Among those assisting with the service was the Crown Jeweller Mark Appleby, who brought the silverware used for the royal family's Christenings, including a font, basin and flask of holy oil.
The Chapel Royal choir - which is the oldest continuous musical organisation in the world and features six Gentlemen-in-Ordinary and ten Children of the Chapel - the oldest continuous musical organisation in the world - performed during the service.
After her baptism, Meghan then underwent her confirmation, meaning she can join Harry in taking Holy Communion at future church services if she wishes.
And when the evening ceremony, which took around 45 minutes, finished, 18 guests walked to Charles and Camilla's home at nearby Clarence House, where the couple hosted a dinner.
It is believed her parents Doria Ragland and Thomas Markle were not in attendance.
Meghan - who was previously married to Trevor Engelson - did not need to be baptised to marry Harry in church, but had made it clear after they got engaged last November that she had chosen to do so out of respect for Queen Elizabeth, who is head of the Church of England.
