"People" magazine says KIM KARDASHIAN and KANYE WEST are getting married on May 24th. As we've already heard, it's going down in Paris, and it'll be a small ceremony. At least compared to Kim's last wedding.
They're "only" inviting around 150 people, and their daughter North West, who'll be less than a month shy of her first birthday, will have a role in the ceremony.
Are Lamar Odom's Drug Dealers Stealing from the Kardashians?
Los Angeles police are investigating the theft of more than $200,000 worth of jewelry and other valuables from the home that KHLOE KARDASHIAN and LAMAR ODOM used to share.
And now, sources are saying that Lamar's former DRUG DEALERS are suspects.
Lamar supposedly owed TENS OF THOUSANDS of dollars to several dealers, and once he left for Spain to play basketball, they started texting him threats that they were going to break in and TAKE what he owed.
Meanwhile, the LAPD is also investigating the theft of $50,000 in cash from KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN'S house. And supposedly, they think the two incidents are related.
The word is that these were INSIDE JOBS, so one of the dealers might have a connection to somebody who works for the family.
Simon Cowell Says He Was "Born to Be a Dad"
In his first interview since the birth of his son, SIMON COWELL said, quote, "I was born to be a dad."
He added, quote, "I wouldn't rule out [more children]! Well, I got [my dogs] Squiddly and Diddly, and I couldn't imagine Squiddly or just Diddly . . . I had a brother when I was younger, so I kind of think it's cool to have two . . . or three . . . [no] two."
Simon apparently realized he was "born to be a dad" at age 54. Interestingly enough, that's the same age he realized he was NOT born to host a show called "X Factor" in the U.S.

And yesterday on an Australian morning TV show, Katy admitted that's EXACTLY what she did. She said, quote, "I just walked up to her to give her a friendly girly kiss, as us girls do.

Justin Bieber's Urine Test Video Will Be Released . . . But With His "Little Bieber" Censored
A Florida judge has ruled that video of JUSTIN BIEBER taking a URINE TEST after his DUI arrest WILL be released. But Justin's EQUIPMENT will be censored.
Several media outlets requested the video, and Florida law allows them access to evidence in a criminal case after it's been given to the defense. There's no word when we'll see the clip.
In addition to his urine test, Justin Bieber also had to bare all his tattoos, so the cops could take pictures of them. We assume they did it to keep a record of his identifying marks.

Shia LaBeouf and Hilary Duff. They went on ONE date. We don't know when it happened, but in an interview a few years ago, Shia called it, quote, "the worst date either of us has ever had."
Robert Downey Jr. and Sarah Jessica Parker. You may have forgotten about this one, but these two were a big item in the '80s. But even back then he was dealing with his "issues", and that's what eventually drove them apart.
Lance Armstrong and Ashley Olsen. Yes, this actually happened, in 2007.

Jimmy Fallon Only Spent a Third of his First Week Talking to Guests . . . Is This the End of the Late Night Talk Show?
JIMMY FALLON does a lot more music and comedy sketches than any other late night hosts . . . and experts think this might lead to the end of the late night talk show as we know it.
During his first week hosting "The Tonight Show", Jimmy only spent 33% of each show actually TALKING to guests . . . as opposed to JAY LENO'S average of 51%. And his ratings have been great so far.
A professor of media studies says Jimmy's success could inspire his competitors to follow his lead, turning what used to be TALK shows into VARIETY shows.
He says, quote, "Fallon is basically doing 'Saturday Night Live' with a short interview segment. To do a talk show, you have to talk, and Fallon doesn't do too much of that."

Miley Cyrus Tried to Make Out With Katy Perry During One of Her Concerts
KATY PERRY showed up for the MILEY CYRUS gig in Los Angeles on Saturday night . . . and Miley called her up to the edge of the stage for a kiss.

The original series ran from 2005 to 2010. It was a sensation in its first season . . . but interest in the show declined sharply as it went on. But apparently, NBC thinks there may be some more meat on the bone.
