The rain couldn’t keep gossipmongers away from Lainey Gossip’s 9th Annual Smut Soiree. The self appointed Dean of the Faculty of Celebrity Studies opened her dirt discussion, moderated by entertainment reporter Teri Hart, with the promise of “gossip jizz” and we all leaned in (not in the Sheryl Sandberg way), eyes widening. Herewith, the revelatory highlight reel:

1. The biggest gossip story of 2014 thus far is the Solange/Jay-Z elevator dust up. The latest story coming out of New York is that Naomi Campbell was the catalyst that fateful night in May at the Met Ball. Apparently engaging in trash talking of some sort, Solange was pissed Jay-Z didn’t stop it somehow. Not clear enough, but hey I’ll take it.

2. If you’re a reader of the blog, you know that Alexa Chung has been the reason cited for Chris and Gwyneth’s uncoupling. Lainey offered further details, saying by December of 2013, Martin started to feel guilty about his affair and re-commited to Goop. They tried to make it work but he couldn’t forget Chung. However that door was not left ajar and she’s now cooled on him.

3. When asked who is the biggest closet case in Hollywood, she answered John Travolta, surprising no one. (I could have easily gone for a masseuse update though.)

4. But in a shocking announcement, Bradley Cooper swings both ways. She also alluded to Matt Damon dabbling in it as well.

5. We all know Julia Roberts is a “sanctimonious, better than you b*tch” but Hart shared a story of how she interviewed her one time and thanked for being punctual. Roberts’s reply “That’s what I do. I start on TIME.” She’s also great with men, but is awful to women.

6. Sad smut: Jake Gyllenhaal is in a bad way. During a booty call with Minka Kelly, she called his publicist because she was concerned he might hurt himself.

7. Charlize and Sean. “She’s not a nice woman. He is a not a nice man. This was made to happen.” The two are apparently blissfully miserable together.

8. Justin Timberlake is the subject of a Blind Item related to a painkiller addict. She also had these words for him: “Like his voice, his balls haven’t dropped. He’s also a piece of shit.” To wit: the charity, Shriners Hospital for Children, terminated their relationship with him.

9. Clooney and Amal are legit. And he gave each of the dudes in his non Hollywood posse a briefcase with $500,000 at a dinner at his house a few months before he got engaged, thanking them for their loyal support and friendship.

10. Kanye is not gay, but he is an agitator, which is why he married one of the most polarizing women in the world. Oh and because of her bum, but that’s a personal theory.

BONUS: Selena Gomez is not well liked; at the MMVAs, the Jenner girls were ripping her to anyone who would listen.
