Court formally grants Aaron Paul's name change petition, more news

New name, same guy

Welcome to the world, Aaron Paul. The “Breaking Bad” actor has been legally granted a name change, and he will be known in the eyes of the law as… drumroll please, Aaron Paul. Born Aaron Sturtevant, the actor has been using a stage name for years, and that stage name is now his moniker. Aaron’s wife, Lauren, also filed to take the last name of Paul, and they filed paperwork to change their son’s name to change their son’s name from Casper Emerson Paul, to Ryden Caspian Paul. All the name change petitions were granted on Dec. 19, The Blast reported.

Brow prank

Kim Kardashian suffered a hilarious prank at the hands of her eldest daughter, North West, but the reality TV star wasn’t laughing. A video uploaded to TikTok shows North filming herself with a pink razor. She then rubbed it on Kim’s eyebrows as she slept. As Kim woke up, North showed her a video that seemed to show the Skims founder with pencil-thin eyebrows. “North, this is not funny,” Kim said sternly as the child laughed. Kim quickly realized that her appearance was not altered whatsoever, as she was looking at herself via a filter that tweaks eyebrows. While Kim didn’t find the prank amusing, North did. “The fake eyebrows filter that’s so funny ha ha!,” she captioned the video.

O-Kay couple?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are causing quite the stir in the advertisement world, but it actually has nothing to do with them. Kay Jewelers recently released a commercial that shows a man and woman nuzzling as he gives her jewelry. At first glance, the duo looks like the Sussex’s — dead ringers, in fact. But, TMZ notes that the man and woman are just really good doppelgängers. Plus, the editing, lighting and camera angles of the commercial are done very well, all of which further imply that the happy on-screen couple is Harry and Meg. The commercial using the Harry and Meghan lookalikes comes amid the release of their “Harry & Meghan” Netflix docuseries.

Merchandise mayhem

Justin Bieber never had the intentions of selling his merchandise at H&M. On Monday Dec. 19, Justin ripped the retailer for selling clothing with his name and likeness. “I didn’t aprove [sic] any of the merch collection that they put up at H&M .. all without my permission and approval,” Justin wrote atop a blank orange screen. “SMH I WOULDN’T BUY IT IF I WERE YOU.” The “Sorry” singer then slammed the actual merchandise, too, calling it “trash.” He stressed, “I DIDN’T APPROVE IT DONT BUY IT.” H&M recently released t-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies and a tote bag bearing Justin’s face. A rep for the store told Page Six, “As with all other licensed products and partnerships, H&M followed proper approval procedures.”

Family ties

Prison is proving to be quite the family bond for the Chrisleys. Next month, Todd and Julie Chrisley will both report to Florida prisons to begin their sentences, having been convicted of fraud (he was sentenced to 12 years, whereas she’ll have to serve seven years.) With Todd and Julie’s freedom dwindling, his daughter Lindsie said the family is growing closer. “I think inevitably whenever you go through something hard, no matter what that may be, we’ve gone through divorce, the legal stuff, all of these things. I think that you gravitate towards what you know,” Lindsie told People magazine. “You band together and stand together when times do get tough. That is family.” She added, “I do think in some ways it, for sure, has brought us closer together. But I would’ve wished that it would’ve been for other reasons and not this.” 

Cover me

Their faces have been plastered on hundreds (if not thousands) of magazine covers over the years, and now Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani have a place for all of them… by the toilet. The “Hollaback Girl” singer told WSJ. Magazine that she and Blake decorated a bathroom with magazine covers. “When we built our house last year in Oklahoma, one of the bathrooms going out to the pool is every single tabloid cover, made into wallpaper,” Stefani shared.  “You go in there and you’re like, ‘Oh my God.’ It’s pretty funny.” One cover not found in the home? Blake’s Sexiest Man Alive cover from People magazine.

Health update

Sharon Osbourne is “doing great” just two days after being rushed to a California hospital for emergency surgery. Although little is known as to why the former “The Talk” host was taken to the hospital, sources told Page Six she “fell ill” while filming a paranormal show called “Night of Terror.” On Monday, Dec. 19, Sharon posted an Instagram photo of her dog and Christmas tree. “Back home and doing great! Thank you for all the ❤️ 🥰.” Sharon was always thought of as relatively healthy prior to the brief hospitalization.
