Britney Spears' ex-boyfriend David Lucado wants desperately to contact her, but he's going to have to get past the venerable brick wall known as Mr. Jamie Spears.

The 32-year-old has been under conservatorship of her father since her 2007-08 mental breakdown. Jamie's widely credited with saving her career, even life.

When Jamie Spears bought the video of Lucado cheating on Britney from an unknown source, he proved yet again the lengths he'll go to protect his daughter.

David's fighting an uphill battle, in other words.

As soon as word of David Lucado cheating on Britney leaked, his rep put out a statement saying he's in love with her and he hopes this can all work out.

Didn't happen. Brit dumped him immediately, blasted her single status on social media more than once and put her team on notice that he's been 86'd.

Lucado, according to reports, is telling his friends (what he has left) that he and the pop megastar were not "100 percent together" a few weeks ago.

"We were on a break!" Ross Gellar exclaims.

Together or not, he was dancing and making out with a girl and it was caught on video, which was shopped around, purchased by Jamie for a premium.

Team Spears says that in the wake of the scandal, he's no longer welcome at her concerts in Las Vegas, her residences there or in California, or even on her phone.

He's been blocked, everywhere he turns.

Lucado says he's been stonewalled by her camp but Britney never talked to him personally, and believes he actually can sort this out if he can just reach her.

Good luck with that, D.


1. When Things Were Good
David Lucado and Britney Spears were together for a good 18 months. Until he CHEATED on her and got caught!

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber may or may not be destined to be together in life, but they are together right now and enjoying every second of it.

On vacation in Canada, Justin shared a picture of Selena cuddling him and nuzzling his neck, her dark hair cascading all over him in romantic bliss.

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber jetted off to his native country for the holiday weekend, having recently rekindled their relationship for the 193rd time.

Bieber, who is said to be treating her like a princess when he's not off getting in trouble with the cops, must be smitten, given the public pic sharing.

He's not even taking some of these recent ones down moments after they go live on his social media pages! That's when you know it's love, people.

The pop singer is wearing the same outfit as the one he donned in his recent selfie with Selena, who recently debuted her new weave on Instagram.

We've been hearing that he wanted to whisk her away from LA to really have some quality one-on-one time, and he looks to be making good on that.

“She’s finally bring treated the way she always wanted him to treat her, like a princess,” an insider said of their trip up to Canada with his family.

Sounds pretty serious, at least for the next few hours.

Justin and Selena as a couple: Yay or nay?

 

Yes, they are meant to be!No, he doesn't deserve her!No, she doesn't deserve him!

Keeping Up with the Kardashians will celebrate a couple major life milestones this holiday weekend.

On a two-part season finale that takes up Sunday night and Monday night, Kim Kardashian will go through the final stages of her wedding prep before exchanging vows with Kanye West.

This will include a bridal shower that totally takes Kim's by surprise. Or not at all even remotely by surprise.

The episode will also include Kourtney Kardashian breaking news of her third pregnancy to Scott Disick and Scott reacting in a totally excited, smooth, supportive manner.

HA! We almost wrote that with a straight face. Watch two sneak peeks now:

Are you excited to see Kourtney raise a third child? Psyched to witness the road to Kimye's wedding?

Go watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians online via TV Fanatic if you need to catch up and toggle through memorable photos from the series here:


1. Kim Kardashian THONG

Odd behavior is sort of a hallmark of being famous. We've come to expect some celebrities to pull ridiculous stunts in the name of art or self-promotion.

When Shia LaBeouf wears a paper bag on his head, we tip our heads to the side and tap our chins and go "hmmm..." and wait for answers.

When James Franco hits on an 18 year old on Instagram, we accuse him of being a dirty old man and then realize that's exactly what happens in his newest flick, label it a publicity stunt, and move on to the next scandal.

But then there are our pop stars and the Twitter users who love and loathe them who ask questions that really make us think ..


1. Why Does Lady Gaga Look Like a Hash Brown?
Good question, @luisspears. Very good question indeed.

Too bad the only answers we can really come up with for these 23 questions for pop stars which cannot actually be answered are "because" and "drugs, of course."

But there's really no way to explain Miley Cyrus' right knee. 

TV Guide has published its annual list television's highest-paid actors, and there are some serious shake-ups in the 2014 pecking order.

For one thing, the number 1,2, and 3 spots all belong to Big Bang Theory cast mates.


1. Tim Allen
The former Tool Man's return to television has netted him some big bucks. Allen receives an estimated $250,000 an episode for Last Man Standing.

Yes, as you may have heard, Kaley Cuoco and her co-stars signed $90 million contracts after protracted negotiations, making them the most well-compensated cast on the small screen by a fairly wide margin.

Kaley and the Geek Squad (as Charlie Sheen dubbed them when he was the brightest star in the CBS galaxy) will pull an estimated $1 million an episode for the next three years, and will also enjoy an undisclosed portion of the show's profits.

Industry insiders say the TBBT actors may be the last stars to receive such astonishing paydays due to audience fragmentation brought about by cable and streaming services, as well as "cast churning" (the practice of frequently dispatching series regulars, say with a Valyrian steel blade).

The trend of lower salaries for TV's biggest names can already be seen in this year's list. The Big Bang deal made headlines in large part because it's so unheard of nowadays.

TV's highest-paid dramatic actor - Mark Harmon of CBS' NCIS - pulled in a paltry-by-comparison $525,000 per episode. Compare that  to 2007 when James Gandolfini - a cable star, no less - pulled in over $1 million an episode for The Sopranos.

But in 2014, for the second year in a row, CBS paid its stars the most, with Two and a Half Men stars Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer rounding out the top five.

So while Netflix and HBO may be on the rise, "America's most watched network" is still the place to make the bigbest bucks...for now.
