**Iggy Azalea confirmed she's dating Houston Texans star DeAndre Hopkins...

If you can remember, Iggy's first run with a professional baller didn't go so well ... she had a disastrous breakup with NBA Warriors star Nick Youngs.

But about her new status with the Texans player she said, "Yeah, we're in a relationship," in an interview in Miami.

There had been rumors about the two for a week or so ... especially after the Texans star was awfully flirty with her in some of his IG posts but now it looks like things are official.


According to his and her latest tweets, this is no longer a thing. That was quick.

**Remember when Chris Rock Oscars hosted the Oscars in 2016 and he quizzed people on the street as to whether or not they'd seen the Academy Award-nominated movies from that year?

And it turned out that many people hadn't even heard of the movies in question, let alone seen them. Well, that may soon change.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences tweeted Wednesday that a new category is "being designed around achievement in popular film." A representative for the Academy confirmed to "Good Morning America" that the new category will be implemented in time for next year's ceremony, which is scheduled for Feb. 24.

**This BRAD PITT / ANGELINA JOLIE situation is getting uglier by the minute...

After Angelina accused Brad of not paying child support, Brad filed papers of his own, saying he's given her plenty . . . including $1.3 million in support, and an $8 million loan so she could buy the house she currently lives in. That’s over $9 million.

He also accused her of trying to "increase conflict" between them, and manipulate media coverage.

Then Angelina's team issued a statement of their own, saying that a loan is a LOAN, not support, and Brad's got Angelina paying him back WITH INTEREST.  More importantly, he's simply NOT paying half the kids' expenses, as he should.

Their statement also says, quote, "We are hopeful that this can be resolved without further delay or posturing."
