Celeb in 5: Wednesday's best entertainment and gossip news.

1. Oh. Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson weren’t in a “proper relationship” during the Jordyn Woods scandal.

The Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson cheating scandal rocked the Kardashian-Jenner clan to its core. When the story emerged in March this year, it was hard to look away.

And now, thanks to this little-known show called Keeping Up With The Kardashians, we are seeing exactly how the whole thing played out.

But while the finale for the reality show goes to air, reports are surfacing that paint a very different picture to the one being conveyed on KUTWK.

According to People, Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson were not in fact in a relationship at the time of the scandal. (In case you've forgotten, Jordyn Woods kissed Tristan Thompson, the partner of her best friend Kylie Jenner’s half-sister, Khloe Kardashian.)

"When the Jordyn drama happened, Khloé and Tristan were not in a proper relationship," a source told the publication.

"They had not been for weeks. They didn’t even spend Valentine’s Day together, which was right before he messed around with Jordyn."

However, despite not being in a "proper relationship", the source explained that Khloe remained hopeful of them reconciling their romance.

"This doesn’t mean that it was completely over for Khloé. It was very difficult for her to find out about Tristan and Jordyn. But this is what made her realise that Tristan would never change. It was heartbreaking for her."

2. Married At First Sight's Martha and Michael have shared a bizarre video denying their break-up.

Well. Martha, 31, and Michael, 27, from this year's season of Married at First Sight (a.k.a the TV show that took over our lives for an entire three months) have posted a bizarre video to YouTube titled: "THE TRUTH ABOUT OUR BREAKUP".

But don't be fooled. Because they didn't actually break up.

The MAFS couple just denied speculation that they have split.

And Martha comes up with a genius idea: To go through her boyfriend's DMs.

Martha insisted that Michael allowed her to sift through his private messages.

"Seeing as everyone thinks we have broken up, I've been thinking, 'I wonder what girls are writing to him in his [Instagram] direct messages?'" she said in the 21-minute video.

But Martha was disappointed with the discovery that literally no woman had messaged her man.

"I kind of feel like, ew. No one wants you, what am I doing with you?" the reality TV star joked.

Michael also said in the video: "If I'd said to Martha let me go through your DMs, it would have been World War III... I would have been hung and castrated."

Other bizarre moments include, but are not limited to, when they discussed their exes and Michael said, "Marcus, hope you're watching this, because she still thinks about you."

Oh. And then Michael talked about a time he performed role play while having sex, and Martha responded, "You don't want to do anything kinky with me, you're just vanilla as f***."

3. Tom Gleeson just can't stop bringing up Karl Stefanovic on the Today Show.

If there's one name that will cause a swift meltdown in the Today Show studio, it's that of sacked co-host Karl Stefanovic.

And those who dare mention his name on the show might just be the bravest (or most brazen) people on Australian television.

In fact, we're pretty sure any guest who appears on the show is given a contract to sign barring them from mentioning he-who-must-not-be-named, which most have honoured, we assume out of fear.

Until comedian Tom Gleeson.

The host of The Hard Quiz  just couldn't help himself during his appearance this morning. And good Lord was it awkward.

Speaking to hosts Deb Knight, Georgie Gardner and Tom Steinfort about his campaign for this year’s Gold Logie, he couldn't help but bring up the ~sensitive topic~ of Karl's absence.

“I need to ask a question before I go. Where is Karl? What have you done with him? When is he coming back?” he asked at the end of the interview.

“I told you last time where he was, I ate him,” Gardner replied before changing the topic.

But – determined to stir up trouble – Gleeson managed to get in one more comment about Stefanovic before he left.

After Knight encouraged Gleeson to “come and see us if you win” after the Logies on Sunday night, the comedian responded: “I will get up the next morning and I will come and say ‘hello’ and I will be in terrible shape, like Karl,” Gleeson said.

He was of course referencing Stefanovic’s tipsy on-air appearance after the TV awards in 2009, which we will never, ever forget.

Gleeson also made several references to Richard Wilkins' genitalia during the show. As you do on breakfast television.

4. Apparently those rumours about a Simple Life reboot were all wrong.

It's been an emotional rollercoaster for those of us who absolutely lost our sh*t when rumours of a Simple Life reboot emerged this week.

Said to star ultimate frenemies (or, let's face it – straight up enemies) Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton, it turns out it was all a cruel, cruel prank and we are devastated.

It sounded set to be the most glorious instalment of trash TV we'd ever have the pleasure of guilt-watching.

A source tells EW, however, that there is no truth behind the rumours of a Netflix reboot.

The whispers began following a series of cryptic messages posted Tuesday by the since-removed Twitter account @TheSimpleLife.

The account – which did not have a verified checkmark – shared an old photo of Lohan and Hilton with the caption “keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.”

Another tweet hinted that Lohan would be involved in the supposed reboot’s new theme song which, again, we are deeply saddened will not be happening.

@TheSimpleLife has been suspended on Twitter, and Hilton has stepped in to personally shut down the rumours.
