Rihanna Miffed at Chris Brown Over New Song?

Lester Cohen/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Last week Rihanna tweeted "Happy Birthday" to her former boyfriend Chris Brown.  Now, just days later, the two have unfollowed each other on Twitter and some believe that the move has something to do with Breezy's new "Theraflu" freestyle.

For the record, Rihanna unfollowed Chris first, just hours after he released his new music.

"Don't f*ck with my old b****es, like a bad fur/every industry ni**a done had her...," Chris raps over the beat from Kanye West's track, now officially titled "Way Too Cold."

Some folks are speculating that Chris' line about not dealing with his exes is aimed at Rihanna.  He seemed to address that theory in a tweet on Thursday, writing, "Assumptions! I didn't say any names so if u took offense to it then its something you feel guilty about."

Whether Rihanna and Chris are at odds, is unclear.  Their reunion on Rih's "Birthday Cake" remix back in March sparked heated debates among fans and observers, with many people saying Rihanna should stay away from Chris because of the 2009 assault on her, to which he pleaded guilty.

"Avengers" Star Mark Ruffalo’s Twitter Account Hacked

Taylor Hill/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Avengers star Mark Ruffalo may seek to avenge the hacking of his Twitter account. 

The Hollywood Reporter says Ruffalo’s account was hacked on Sunday, and resulted in spam being sent to more than 155,000 followers.

The hacker changed Ruffalo’s username from @MRuff221 to @Mark_Ruffalo and posted a series of tweets promoting an ad platform for social media.  The hacker then added links to photos of Kate Upton and a YouTube video entitled “Funny Cats.” 

The hacker eventually signed off after writing, "Sleep now. I hope you resolve your passwords. Your account hacked because passwords set very stupid LOL =))."

Ruffalo appears to have responded with, “It’s kind of hilarious me getting hacked today. I got to hand it to the hacker. Kind of genius.”

The Hollywood Reporter says a fan later registered Ruffalo’s original account name, and was holding it until the actor regained control of it.

Last year Yeater, 20, stunned the entertainment industry and Bieber’s millions of ardent fans when she sued the pop star, claiming she got pregnant after they had a minutes-long tryst in a backstage bathroom following one of his concerts.

Bieber reportedly took a DNA test to disprove the paternity claim.

Bieber posted the tweet during what he called Random Twitter Hour, which featured other odd postings, including: “Rick james is my grandfather”; “my loins”; “chuck norris wears justin bieber pajamas”; “why does david ortiz look like robocop haha” and “wish dirty diana would clean up her act.”

Alec Baldwin Blasts "Today" Show, Claims He's Leaving "30 Rock"

Marc Stamas/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Alec Baldwin on Wednesday dropped a not-so-subtle hint that he's leaving 30 Rock during a Twitter rant that targeted another NBC program: the Today show.

Baldwin was apparently upset that a Today show crew camped outside his New York City apartment building as part of a segment regarding the recent arrest of his alleged stalker.

In a series of tweets, Baldwin writes, "Outside my apt today, along side [sic] the other stalkers from the tabloid press, a crew that identified themselves as being with the Today Show....I haven't appeared on the Today Show in many years. But did they have to camp outside my apt?....No one from NBC contacted me until the Today Show arrived at my apt. I think I'm leaving NBC just in time."

Despite Baldwin's suggestion that his days on 30 Rock are numbered, E! Online reports he remains committed to the comedy.

Last weekend, a Canadian actress named Genevieve Sabourin was charged with stalking after attempting to contact Baldwin.
