Get your lowdown on what's happening in the world of Hollywood, right here!

Singer Bryan Adams is set to become a father for the first time at the age of 51.

'His personal assistant, Alicia Grimaldi, is expecting his baby in May,' the Telegraph quoted a friend and neighbour in Chelsea of the rocker as saying.

The source adds, 'Many of their friends still don't even know that they are a couple, but they are living together at his house.'

Alicia, who is the daughter of a leading surgeon, Peter Grimaldi, helped to establish the Bryan Adams Foundation and is one of the charity's four trustees.

The Cambridge graduate, who is in her 30s, declines to comment on her happy news. She apparently knows that Adams never discusses his love life.

Pop group Westlife have ended their relationship with Simon Cowell after 13 years.

The Irish band have left the X Factor guru's Syco label and signed a multi-million deal with rival Sony RCA.

It comes a month after Syco decided not to release a single the band favoured from latest album Gravity. Mark Feehily, Shane Filan, Kian Egan and Nicky Byrne of the band are managed by X Factor judge Louis Walsh.

'The move is a natural progression. There was no bad feeling,' the Sun quoted Walsh as saying.

Nicky tweeted, 'It is time for a change.'

'We are still very young & have lots of energy left,' Feehily wrote.

A source close to Justin Timberlake claims that contrary to swirling speculation, Mila Kunis is not responsible for the actor's break-up with Jessica Biel.

'Mila had nothing to do with their break-up,' People Magazine quoted the source as saying. 'In fact, no one came between them. They decided their relationship ran its course and it was time to move on.'

Reacting to suggestions that Timberlake has already moved on with Kunis after his split, the source explained, 'They're not in a relationship,' the source says. 'They star in a movie called Friends with Benefits but they're just friends. That's it. They are not together.'

The original score from Psycho, directed by Alfred Hitchcock, has been put up on sale for $ 75,000.

According to Britain's Sunday Express, Norma Herrmann, widow of the film's composer Bernard Herrmann, is selling the 20-page manuscript to raise funds to produce a DVD box set of her late husband's work.

'It's such a famous score and means a lot to me. It's the only thing I've kept of Bernard's work as a last souvenir,' Contactmusic quoted the widow as saying.

The piece has been offered up for auction, but Herrmann is also in negotiations to sell it to the University of California.
