Just four months after welcoming their first child together, Jason Derulo and his girlfriend Jena Frumes have broken up.

The couple started dating in March of 2020, and Jena has been a constant presence in Jason's TikTok videos.  The two welcomed son Jason King on May 8.

On Twitter today, Jason wrote, "Jena and I have decided to part ways. She is an amazing mother but we feel being apart at this time will allow us to be the best versions of ourselves and the best parents we could be. Pls respect our privacy in this time."

Jason and Jena have the same birthday -- September 21 -- and People captured an Instagram post Jenna put up Wednesday showing the two marking the occasion in Aspen, Colorado -- a post she later deleted.

"Blessed to share the same day of birth with my lover. You are the most handsome, hardworking, talented, silly, loving human ever," Jena wrote about Jason in the post. "You truly make me whole and I'm so grateful for the love we share. You and our mini make me the happiest girl in the world and I can't wait to make more memories with you guys."

She continued, "I know I'm a tough cookie but you make me soft and accept me for who I am and I'm forever grateful for that. Cheers to another year! I love you so much, forever."

Although she deleted that post, her Insta is still filled with pics of Jason.  And Jena is still on Jason's Instagram as well.

Some of music's biggest names, from Dua Lipa, Adam Levine and Justin Timberlake to Shawn Mendes, Billie Eilish and Lady Gaga, are calling on entertainment industry leaders to demand action on climate change from Congress.

In a letter addressed to the heads of companies like Facebook, Netflix, Sony, Disney, Apple, Google and Amazon, the artists, working with the Natural Resources Defense Council Action Fund, state that the bosses are "needed to lead our community’s call for action and embrace this vision for a better world."

"Now is the time to use your influence to shape our future," the letter continues. "Congress needs to hear you demand, unequivocally, that it put forward and pass the most ambitious climate change agenda in U.S. history."

The letter asks that the business leaders "demand publicly and loudly that our senators and representatives" pass legislation that is currently before them.  The legislation, the letter claims, will "create healthier communities, put millions to work in clean energy jobs, and free us from the fossil fuels that are driving climate change."

The artists go in to say that they'll be using their own platforms to remind all Americans to tell their senators and representatives in Congress that they "demand climate action now," by taking up the president's agenda.

"Tweet. Post. E-mail. Call. Whatever it takes," the letter concludes. "This is our moment, and there is no time to waste."

Others who signed the letter include Barbra Streisand, Alessia Cara, Camila Cabello, John Legend, Lorde, Ryan Tedder, Selena Gomez, Shakira, Demi Lovato and Coldplay, as well as stars like Leonardo DiCaprio, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Hugh Jackman, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Kerry Washington, Lin-Manuel Miranda, J.J. Abrams, Chris Evans, Ryan Reynolds and Ellen DeGeneres, among many others.

Britney Spears' fiancé, Sam Asghari, isn't exactly thrilled about the fact that Netflix is streaming a documentary about his future wife, if a comment he made on Netflix's Instagram page can be believed.

Britney vs. Spears promises a deep dive into Britney's conservatorship, and Netflix says it's based on years of research, documents, voicemails and texts. It was not made with Britney's involvement, however.  When Netflix posted the trailer for the doc, called Britney vs. Spears, on Instagram Wednesday, Sam jumped into the comments section and wrote, "I hope the profit from these docs go towards fighting against injustice #freebritney."

Then Bobby Campbell, who is Lady Gaga's manager, chimed in: "How much money is being made by third parties from this documentary leveraging Britney’s personal story and its value in the media?"

"There needs to be transparency about how or whether the filmmakers are profiting from this doc, or if they are donating their fees to Britney’s legal defense, or to legal defense funds to aide those who do not have the financial resources to fight against undue conservatorships," Campbell continued. "Even if it is in support of freeing Britney, this appears that it could be exploitative."

Sam replied "100%" to Campbell's comments.

However, fans weren't pleased with either man's comments.  As one pointed out, "We know these docs make money using Britney's name. But we can't deny that the free Britney movement gained momentum after they were aired."

Fans also tore Campbell apart, accusing him of doing nothing to help Britney, and urging him to insist that Lady Gaga support Britney publicly. They also accused him of being friends with Lou M.Taylor, Britney's former business manager, who some fans believe is the "secret mastermind" behind the conservatorship.

Britney vs Spears streams Sept. 28 on Netflix.

MUSIC IN COLOR by BEHR (PRNewsfoto/Behr Paint)

Are you one of those people who sees or thinks in colors when they hear music? Well, that's technically called "synesthesia," but it's also apparently the theme of a new ad campaign that teams Katy Perry with BEHR paints and Spotify.

The idea of the "Music In Color" campaign is that every song suggests a specific color -- a BEHR paint color, natch.  If you go to BehrMusicInColor.com and type in any song on Spotify -- let's say it's Katy's hit "Teenage Dream" -- it'll analyze it and tell you, "This song is in the key of..." and then it'll display a BEHR paint color. For "Teenage Dream," it's a light-blue color called "Sea of Tranquility." 

If you plug in, say, Harry Styles' "Watermelon Sugar," you find out its color is "Joyful Orange."  A classic like Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'"?  It's a greenish shade called "Beta Fish." Fun, right?

However, it should be noted that all the colors you'll see are chosen from the 12 in what BEHR calls its Katy Palette.  In a one-minute short film, Katy shows off the palette by literally dialing up her hits. As she does so, she and the white room she's in are automatically transformed into a different color.  "Never Really Over" is yellow, "Waking Up in Vegas" is red, and so on.

"When I write a song, I almost always have a simultaneous sense of the accompanying visual -- whether that's a strong music video idea or just a color palette vibe. It was amazing to see my colors come to life with the Behr Music In Color," says Katy in a statement.

So, if you want your bedroom to have the vibe of, let's say, Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit," you can now use this tool and find out that it's...light green?

Rihanna's Savage X Fenty Show Vol. 3 on Wednesday was more spectacular than ever, featuring performances by Nas, Daddy Yankee, BIA, Jazmine Sullivan, Ricky Martin, Normani, and Jade Novah.

Joined by a group of models, RiRi made a dynamic appearance, seductively lying on a couch to the beat of Busta Rhymes and Janet Jackson's "What's It Gonna Be? and Busta's "Break Ya Neck," according to Billboard.

"It's not easy in a corset!" the nine-time Grammy winner told Entertainment Tonight. "I had to make it work!" she added with a laugh. "But it's my way of just being part of my show. I won't do it every single time, but I like to be in there a little bit."

Now in its third year, the Savage X Fenty show has become a high priority for many stars.

"They're calling us now, and it feels so great that it has that credibility and that people value the stage," Rihanna shared. "People even pull out from other shows to be a part of it. If we keep pushing ourselves and challenging our show year after year, I feel like we could really do wonders."

Recorded at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites in Los Angeles, Savage X Fenty Show Vol. 3 will stream on Amazon Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide beginning Friday, September 24.

One sign that Adele's relationship with sports agent Rich Paul isn't just a passing phase is the fact that the two recently went Instagram official. But according to a source, their romance is much deeper than that.

A source close to Adele tells E! News, "Adele is very much in love with Rich and their relationship has become more serious in the last few months. They have both met each other's kids, but have been keeping it low-key around them."

Adele shares son Angelo with her ex-husband Simon Konecki.  According to The New Yorker, Paul, who's never been married, has three children.

"They both stay at each other's places in L.A., and are pretty much inseparable," adds the source, noting that Adele has been enjoying hanging out with Rich, who reps LeBron James, and his friends.

"She feels really comfortable around him and is in a good headspace right now," the insider continues. "She is all about having fun and being in good company and Rich definitely provides that."

The source also claims that Adele, who hosted SNL last October, is planning to release new songs later this year, hopefully "in December before the holidays." 

As for performing live, the insider claims, "She would love to...go back on tour, but is being cautious of COVID and doesn't have concrete plans yet."
