A source tells People, “The family house is for Jen and the kids now, Ben won’t have any things at the house. The kids are doing well. They have been to Ben’s new house.”

Affleck has reportedly found a place close to the family home to make sure that he can continue to co-parent the kids.

**A Hollywood, Florida man was arrested after posing as Adele’s manager…

Justin Jackson attempted to score tickets to see Kendrick Lamar last weekend by emailing Lamar’s manager as Adele’s manager, Jonathan Dickens.

As they tried to enter the concert, Jackson and his wife were arrested for grand theft and identity theft charges. According to authorities, this isn’t the first time Jackson and his wife impersonated someone. The conman posed as a rep for Madonna, Oprah Winfrey’s nephew and an aide to Barack Obama, all in order to scam free stuff.

**ABC is headed to Florida for audition week of American Idol. TMZ reports that the now-officially announced reality show return will shoot its auditions at Disney World in Orlando.

There has also been talk about having some of the auditions at Disneyland in Anaheim, California as well.

**Ellen DeGeneres‘s star-studded Oscars selfie is no longer the most retweeted tweet ever…

The epic selfie set a record back in March 2014 and has since gotten more than 3,431,000 retweets. She held the “most retweeted” title for more than three years…until Nevada teenager Carter Wilkerson’s plea for free chicken nuggets from Wendy’s went viral this week.

Carter tweeted Wendy’s asking how many retweets he would need for a year’s worth of free nuggets. Wendy’s replied and said 18 million, so he wrote back, “consider it done.”

HELP ME PLEASE. A MAN NEEDS HIS NUGGS,” he captioned the screenshot of his convo with Wendy’s, which now has more than 3,461,000 retweets. Although Carter didn’t quite reach 18 million, Wendy’s awarded him free nuggets for the year anyways.

Speaking of Kanye…him and Kim’s 3 year old daughter North West turned her recent time out into a relaxation session…

Kim snapped a pic of North laid out on a white bath towel and oversized pillow. She covered herself up with another towel, and made an eye mask out of toilet paper and posted it to social media with the caption: “That time North gets a time out & is a little too quiet… I go in her room to check on her & she’s in the bathroom,” wrote Kardashian West on Instagram. “Made her own spa & tells me she’s chilling out.”


**Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller has been sentenced to a year and a day in prison for bankruptcy fraud and bringing $120,000 worth of Australian currency into the country and not reporting it.
