Looks as if there's an Oscar courtship blossoming between 2014 nominees Lupita Nyong'o and Jared Leto, the New York Post reported. Nyong'o, who has also been making a splash with her fashion style, is nominated for best supporting actress for "12 Years a Slave." Leto is up for best supporting actor in "Dallas Buyers Club," in which he portrayed a HIV-positive transgender woman.

The paper reported that "there have been whispers" during the awards season that the pair has an "off-screen chemistry," keeping close at the Golden Gloves and other such fancy gatherings leading up to the Academy Awards in March.

Thursday

Rapper Drake tweeted out his revulsion at the editors of Rolling Stone for bumping him from the mag's cover for a tribute to the late Philip Seymour Hoffman.

"I'm disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil," his since-deleted tweet read. Dude later apologized and agreed with the mag's decision, calling Hoffman "one of the most incredible actors of our time."

Also, formerly jailed rapper, now just rapper, Lil' Kim is five months pregnant with her first child. No other details were revealed by her publicist C.J. Carter, such as Dad's identity. E! Online reports, however, say that rapper Mr. Papers has claimed parentage.
