The Spill: Thursday's best entertainment and gossip news.

1. The internet is going crazy trying to figure out if Kylie Jenner and Drake are dating.

News outlets across the globe are in a tizzy over the relationship status of Kylie Jenner and Drake. Mainly, whether or not the reality star and chart-topping rapper are dating.

For those not in-the-know, 21-year-old Kylie recently split from her partner of two years, and father to their daughter Stormi, Travis Scott in October, 2019. Drake, 33, is the first person she’s been linked to since their separation.

Some publications are reporting their romance as fact, while others aren’t so sure – and it’s dominating a lot of our headspace.

So much so, we decided to do a literature review of the current romantic situation.

On the no side, we have E! News who claim multiple sources close to the couple say the rumours are just that. Rumours.

“Kylie and Drake are not romantic. They have always been good friends and have been hanging out more now that Kylie is single and Drake is in town at his house in Calabasas,” said one source.

“It’s a convenient friendship but it’s strictly platonic.

“Drake is notorious for flirting with all of his girlfriends and him and Kylie have a great dynamic.”

A second source close to Kylie reiterates this.

“She’s very comfortable with him because she’s known him for so long. It may turn into something more than friends. She’s exploring things and is happy to be seeing him. But she considers herself to be single,” they said.

News outlets who believe Kylie and Drake are together are both People and US magazine.

According to US, their friendship turned romantic during a Halloween party. The pair were also seen together at her sister, Kendall Jenner’s birthday party last weekend.

“Kylie and Drake’s friendship did take a romantic turn recently,” said the source.

“At his Halloween party, they were affectionate and clearly there together. They’ve been seeing each other romantically.”

People also quoted a source who said something similar.

“He and Kylie have been spending time together recently,” they said.

“They’ve been friends for a long time and Drake is very close to the family.”

Now as for who to believe, we’re going to have to continue considering the evidence…

2. “I did not f**k him.” Kristen Stewart just spilled all the tea on her affair with Rupert Sanders.

When actress Kristen Stewart was seen kissing Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders back in 2012, it was kind of a big deal… especially for Twilight fans.

Rupert was a married father-of-two and Kristen was in a relationship with her on-screen boyfriend Robert Pattinson.

Pattinson and Stewart broke up shortly after photos of Kristen and Rupert kissing were made public. After that, not much has been said about the affair.

But now the 29-year-old actress has spilled all the tea on her relationship with Rupert on The Howard Stern Show.

Kristen told Stern she understands that when "you make out with a dude in public, it definitely looks like you did [have sex]."

But the Charlie's Angels actress maintains she "did not f**k him".

At the time, Kristen copped criticism over the affair and many speculated that the scandal was the reason why Kristen wasn't asked to be in the Snow White sequel, The Huntsman: Winter's War.

"We lived in a different time then, you know what I mean? I feel like the s**t-shaming that went down was so absurd," she said.

"And they should’ve put me in that movie! It would’ve been better. Not to be a d**k, but... they didn’t put me in that movie because I went through such a highly publicised scandal, and so they were, like, scared of touching that."

So there we have it, after seven long years, we finally have our answers about the affair that broke Twilight fans' young hearts.

3. Lady Gaga said she and Bradley Cooper wanted you to think they were in love and we believed it a little too much.

Okay, we feel a bit silly for obsessing over that theory now.

You know, the theory that Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper and totally ∼in love∼.

A Star Is Born actress, Lady Gaga, addressed the rumours... and apparently their loved-up performance at the Oscars was very, very deliberate.

In an interview with Oprah, the 33-year-old singer said their performance of 'Shallow' took days to perfect.

"As an actress, of course we wanted people to believe that we were in love. And we wanted people to feel that love at the Oscars...

"And we worked hard on it, we worked for days. We mapped the whole thing out - it was orchestrated as a performance."

Mission accomplished. You fooled precisely all of us.

4. Jennifer Aniston just admitted she's started isolating herself and 'loves being home' and honestly? Same.

She might be a mega TV star and movie actress but on the inside, Jennifer Aniston is just like us. Honestly.

Currently doing promotional material for her new programme, The Morning Show (available on Apple TV+), the 50-year-old actress was asked by Glamour UK how she deals with public attention and scrutiny as a private figure - and her response surprised us.

Instead, it would appear that the Friends and Murder Mystery actress opts to keep a low profile.

"I find myself at times isolating a little bit more, staying in - I love being home," she said.

"Home is a very comfortable, safe space for me. But if you stay home for too long you will become isolated and lose touch with what's going on in the real world."

Based on this information alone, we've never felt so close to Aniston, because we too love staying in and "being home".

It's almost as if she understands us on a spiritual level.

5. "A bit suss." The Bachelorette's Matt had doubts about Ryan from the moment he entered the mansion.

Poor Matt Whyatt didn’t get a hell of a lot of airtime on The Bachelorette, but he’s making up for it post-dumping, spilling the tea on the men left in the house.

Matt and Alex (who we also kinda don’t recognise, thanks to his lack of airtime) were left rose-less by Angie Kent last night, which Matt says he was “devastated about” at the time.

“It was hard going through it a couple of months ago and then having to watch it back over again [last night] and seeing how upset I actually was.

“I was obviously devastated because I had formed a good connection [with Angie] we had some good chats and laughs in one-on-ones that didn’t make it to air,” the 27-year-old told Mamamia.

Despite Matt being the latest evictee, it's Ryan who's the focus of post-show chat today.

Last night it was revealed the former RSPCA inspector applied for Ali Oetjen's season of The Bachelorette, despite telling Angie multiple times that he was there purely because it was her, and he wouldn't normally consider "doing something like this".

Matt told Mamamia he had an uneasy feeling about the bloke from the start, even though Angie was obviously smitten with him.

"He's a nice bloke but he's almost too nice. We all opened up with each other and had nothing really to hide, whereas Ryan wouldn't. That came across a bit suss," he said.
