While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • George Michael was in a car accident today, but thankfully he's come out of it with just a few minor scrapes. His rep told CNN in a statement, “George Michael was a passenger in a vehicle involved in a traffic accident yesterday evening, no third party was involved. He is being treated for superficial cuts and bruises but is fine. We have no further comment at this time.”
  • Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles is launching a solo country career - and she's tapped Rick Rubin to help her do it. (Nettles, consider our interest piqued.) [THR]
  • Amazon's potential "Zombieland" series is dead - as in really dead, not like "Night of the Living Dead" - and it's all your fault. The show's co-creator blasted the pilot's critics on Twitter saying that they "successfully hated it out of existence." (Anyone know how that works? We have a few things we'd like to hate out of existence at the moment ...) [LAT]
  • After this monkey business - in the truest sense of the phrase - Justin Bieber should consider just getting a pet fish. The singer now reportedly owes Germany "thousands" after he left his pet monkey in the care of a German animal shelter while he was on tour. [Rolling Stone]
  • Cheryl Cole might be the one person to publicly defend Kim Kardashian's maternity style. The former "X Factor" judge wrote a long message of support to the reality star on Twitter, sending Kimmy her "best wishes." [MTV]
  • A new trailer for "Dexter's" eighth and final season has landed - get into it:

More reports suggest Beyonce's expecting

Let the rumor mill spin.

Beyoncé has yet to address speculation that she's expecting her second child, but sources have now told E! and the New York Post's Page Six that the singer and her husband Jay-Z are readying for baby No. 2.

The couple, who celebrated five years of marriage in April, welcomed daughter Blue Ivy in January 2012.

A rep for Bey had no comment on the reports, but that's not going to stop the gossip given the timing. The singer recently had to postpone one of her concert stops in Belgium on doctor's orders to rest, and just before that, she spoke optimistically about expanding her family.

“I would like more children,” the 31-year-old told ABC News in early May. “I think my daughter needs some company."

Heidi Klum's Hawaii beach vacation with family turned frightening on Sunday when her son, Henry, was pulled into a rip current along with two nannies.

As Us Weekly reported, Klum and her bodyguard/boyfriend, Martin Kirsten, immediately raced to save the 7-year-old and the caretakers. Henry is Klum's oldest son; she's also mom to Leni, 8; Johan, 6; and Lou, 3.

“We were pulled into the ocean by a big wave. Like any mother, I was very scared for my child and everyone else in the water," Klum told CNN in a statement. "Thankfully Henry is a strong swimmer and was able to swim back to land and we were able to get everyone out safely."

The 39-year-old supermodel and TV personality, who's currently hosting the latest season of "Project Runway," will appear on "America's Got Talent" as a judge this summer.
