A snap from Rob's Instagram reveals the former Keeping Up with the Kardashian star's sleeve matches up with the one in the picture.remy hair extensions Back in September the reclusive star, 28, had sparked dating rumors with Chris Brown's ex Karrueche Tran as he shared a snap of her on his Instagram account. He wrote alongside the close-up photo of the model - which immediately sparked thousands of 'likes' from his Instagram followers: 'I like when she send me pictures.' Previously he had famously dated The Real co-host Adrienne Bailon from 2007 to 2009, before a messy breakup which would later prompt Twitter feuds between the star and Rob's sisters. Kardashian, who's shed 15 pounds as a result of his new workout regime and diet, is believed to be planning a comeback on his family's reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. After the photo emerged, E! News confirmed that the pair were in fact dating, though noted things are complicated. A source has told the publication that there is 'concern' about the pairing, with the insider feeling that Blac is 'preying' on Rob 'during a weak time.' It is also a concern that Blac is only using Rob to get back at Kylie Jenner, since the two have been feuding since the E! star got together with her ex - and father of her son - Tyga. The source explained how Blac and Rob got together, despite the latter becoming reclusive over the past year. Making changes: Rob (pictured with mother Kris Jenner in 2013) has recently shed 15 pounds as a result of his new workout regime and diet and is believed to be planning a comeback on his family's reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians

'She and Rob have known each other for a while and she had been staying in touch,' the insider shared with E! News. In October Blac was rumored to be dating Ciara's ex Future, even showing off a tattoo she had gotten of his name on Instagram - though the rapper denied the relationship. He took to Twitter, posting: 'Single & focusing on what makes me happy,' then - as if to further deny any connection to Chyna - followed it up with: 'U kno I dnt f**k wit no rumors...' And prior to that the entrepreneur was linked to pro boxer J'Leon Love, with whom she reportedly split in September, as reported by TMZ.perruques cheveux naturels Small world: Blac Chyna was previously engaged to Tyga - currently dating Rob's little sister Kylie Jenner (pictured in 2014) A part of the group: Before Kylie and Tyga got together, Blac Chyna was very close with Kim Kardashian, and even starred in the family's E! reality series (pictured filming with Kim, Kourtney, and Scott Disick in 2013) Blac most famously dated Tyga - currently dating Rob's younger sister Kylie - from November 2011 to late 2014, and the two were engaged for less than two years. The exes share three-year-old son King Cairo Stevenson. Though they officially went public after Kylie's 18th birthday this past August, Kylie and Tyga certainly had not been shy about being in public together, fueling dating rumors since October 2014. This has caused a lot of tension between Blac, Tyga - real name Micheal Ray Stevenson - and Kylie, extending even to her older sisters. Kylie and Blac Chyna - real name Angela Renée White - had been involved in a feud for months, with the pair regularly lashing out at each other on social media. The way they were: The model was best friends with Kylie's sister Kim before the 18-year-old began dating her ex Tyga (pictured in 2014 with ex Tyga, Kim and husband Kanye West) Moving on: Not long after their split in 2014 Tyga was spotted out with Kylie, prompting dating rumors - they have since gone public following the star's 18th birthday in August (seen here at Olivier Rousteing's birthday in October) The Lashed founder came under fire in April as she shared a series of texts that allegedly showed her ex Tyga was trying to reconcile their relationship. Then Kylie reportedly jumped to Twitter to diss the star - and her claims - writing: 'I wish a certain someone would hop off already. It's really stupid to stoop down to a childish level over male attention, get over it please.' However, the Lip Kit by Kylie founder made sure fans knew she was staying out of it, as she later clarified the issue to her followers. Kylie posted: 'I didn't know u could change the font size on tweets now #fake (sic),' as it was proved that her snarky post was actually a fake. Shade: Tyga's former love Blac took aim at the youngest sibling of Kim Kardashian by mocking Kylie's signature full pout with an Instagram photo of herself wearing huge fake wax lips And it continues: Then in August the mother-of-one took to Instagram to share a series of snaps, showcasing her hot bod in a bright pink bikini, seemingly hitting at her ex as she captioned one sultry image: 'I know u Miss me'

It's been the week from hell for Taylor Swift after Kim Kardashian leaked a video online of the singer giving consent to husband Kanye West to use her name in his latest Famous single. And as she continues to hid out in her Queensland, Gold Coast hotel, boyfriend Tom Hiddleston has continued to venture out and mingle with members of the public. Earlier this week, the 35-year-old posed for photos with young fans as he ventured out to buy dinner. Scroll down for video Fan favourite: Tom Hiddleston posed for photos with young fans on the Queensland Gold Coast earlier this week In a photo, shared by Crystal Towler on Instagram, the Thor star beamed with joy as he wrapped his arms around two children for the snap. He seemed more than happy to stop for the picture, leaving the mother of the two children gushing with excitement.perruques cheveux Crystal captioned the moment 'What an absolute gentleman,' before taking to the comments section to speak highly of their encounter with the Hollywood star. Eating in: The 35-year-old was wondering around the popular tourist destination to purchase dinner for him and Taylor as she hid out in their luxury hotel Unaware: Tom stepped out to purchase the take-away the night before the taped video of Taylor's phone call had been leaked 'He was so so sweeetttt!!! She [Taylor] finally has found a guy that is worthy of her kind little heart,' she began to state. She went on to clarify that 'he was getting them some take away dinner.'

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Crystal for comment. Tom stepped out to purchase the take-away the night before the taped video of Taylor's phone call had been leaked. Kim started the social media war when she dropped an audiovisual bomb on Sunday by releasing a video showing Kanye on the phone receiving Taylor's blessing for using her name on the offending track — something she staunchly insisted she never did. Caught in the act? Kim released a video showing Kanye on the phone receiving Taylor's blessing for using her name on the offending track — something she staunchly insisted she never did Taylor reacted soon after by tweeting: 'That moment when Kanye West secretly records your phone call, then Kim posts it on the Internet, a screengrab of the pre-prepared note'. She claimed her issue was the fact that Kanye called her a 'b*tch', and not that he said he was considering having sex with her — as in the recording she can be heard describing that 'as a compliment'. 'Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me 'that b***h' in his song?' the Bad Blood hitmaker wrote. Earlier in the month, Tom had fans in an absolute frenzy while out and about on the Gold Coast. After brushing shoulder's with fans, the actor left 11-year-old fan Bella Terlich crying tears of joy upon meeting her. Shake It Off: Taylor reacted soon after by tweeting: 'That moment when Kanye West secretly records your phone call, then Kim posts it on the Internet, a screengrab of the pre-prepared note' Down Under: Taylor and Tom arrived on the Gold Coast earlier this month He and Taylor arrived in Queensland just over two weeks ago, and while the Shake It Off singer has been keeping a low profile the British star has been heading out and about regularly. The actor is on the Gold Coast to film his latest Marvel superhero movie, Thor: Ragnarok.lace front wigs The film is slated for release in November 2017, and it is believed to draw some of its inspiration from the Planet Hulk comic book story line, where the infuriated green antihero takes over a planet after being beamed into space.

After Thursday night's horrific terror attack in Nice, concerns were raised for the cast and crew of Fifty Shades of Grey, who were filming nearby. Yet Dakota Johnson had moved away from the horrors of the south of France as she headed to Paris to continue filming the second film in the franchise on Monday. The 26-year-old superstar looked incredibly elegant as she sidled along in a stylish floral dress with a belted waist which she toughened up with chunky flatforms.

Boosting her already long legs, the brunette beauty sported chic double strap flatforms which added inches to her height. Injecting a superstar touch into the ensemble, Dakota clutched an envy-inducing Hermes Birkin handbag, complete with gold fastenings and a detachable long strap. Coordinating again with the black accents in her ensemble was her over-sized sunglasses which shielded the majority of her face.cosplay wigs Stylish: The 26-year-old superstar looked incredibly elegant as she sidled along in a stylish floral dress with a belted waist which she toughened up with chunky flatforms Initially wearing her hair pulled back in a low-key ponytail, Dakota, who stars opposite Jamie Dornan playing Christian Grey in the movie, later allowed loose locks to cascade over her shoulders. Her trademark long-length fringe was tickling her lashes as she appeared to sport minimal make-up from beneath her glamorous eyewear. The cast arrived in Paris after a stint of filming in south of France, where they were seen taking a dip in the shores before terror struck nearby. A short way from the set, the tragic Bastille Day terror attack in Nice took place, which saw the death of 84 people including 10 children. Floral fancy: Dakota, who plays meek Anastasia Steele in the erotic trilogy, looked tremendously chic in her white gown which was adorned with a patchwork floral print in a host of pastel hues Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, 31, drove a white lorry drove into the heavily populated Promenade des Anglais crushing people before exiting the vehicle and spraying crowds with bullets. Horrifying footage of the moment the truck turned into a deadly juggernaut were uploaded online within minutes, showing a trail of dead bodies left in its path. The devastating events saw the film's producer Dana Brunetti move to reassure fans that everyone involved with the project was safe. Passing on the message from the whole production team, he wrote on Twitter: 'From production: 'Production has confirmed that everyone working on location in the south of France is okay. ''Everyone has been accounted for and is safe and sound. Thanks for everyone's messages and concerns. Another sad day for France and the world.'
