    Was this past week only seven days long?

    Surely many a fortnight has passed since Kim Kardashian announced she was getting divorced and Justin Bieber was accused of being a dad!

    No? Well, that still doesn't explain the positively jam-packed week in the celebuworld just past...

    KEEPING UP: While her family was going through the on-camera motions, Kim Kardashian went to Minnesota to talk things out with ex-hubby-to-be Kris Humphries. She touched down briefly in L.A. to regroup and then jetted off to Atlanta to shoot the new Tyler Perry movie. Kris, meanwhile, isn't trying to rock the boat and has secured a lawyer to help him cross his t's and dot his i's. (Or at least to make sure he signs on all the dotted lines.)

    BABY WOE: Now really isn't the time to be accidentally dropping trou. Justin Bieber has agreed to take a DNA test to clear up an allegation that he fathered a child with a now-20-year-old who says she had a backstage encounter with the Biebs last year. Well, Mariah Yeater sure does have a baby.

    FLAGGED: Ashton Kutcher, one of Twitter's original settlers, admitted that he is too busy to tweet without supervision after rushing to bash the firing of longtime Penn State football coach Joe Paterno before reading past the headline to find out that JoPa is accused of doing nothing when faced with evidence that one of his assistant coaches was a predatory pedophile. It's OK, Ashton, you're not stupid. You're just not as much smarter than everyone else as you thought you were.

    SAD TYME: Heavy D, who just last month performed at the Michael Jackson tribute concert and the BET Hip-Hop Awards, died suddenly at the age of 44. An autopsy will determine the cause, but in the meantime fans will have a chance to honor the hitmaker at a public memorial in New York. Tyrese Gibson talked to E! News about missing the hip-hop trailblazer.

    DEFLOWERED: Though she's not the only one to pose for Marc Jacobs perfume with a flower blooming between her little knees, Dakota Fanning at 17 is the youngest—and therefore the ad was cited for being too provocative and banned in Britain.
