According to the news source, the mother of two passed away in London from the same form of cancer that took her mother and grandmother. Charlotte was the daughter of Brosnan's late wife Cassandra and was adopted by the 007 star when her father died in 1986.

Keough's rep responded to the dating rumors of the actress, telling JustJared.com, "Riley isn't dating Rob. ...And I can confirm that Riley was not photographed at all this weekend."

4. Kaley Cuoco & Henry Cavill Spark Dating Rumors

If this were an episode of The Big Bang Theory, the boys next door would most definitely be geeking out over the rumor that their neighbor Kaley Cuoco, or Penny as she's called on the show, is dating Man of Steel star Henry Cavill, more affectionately known as Superman.

Us Weekly is claiming that after calling it quits with actress Gina Carano, Cavill is now courting CBS star Cuoco. "They are totally hot for each other," a source tells the magazine. People also confirmed that the two started dating recently.

According to Us' insider, Cavill, 30, has "always wanted to date her" as he's a "massive" fan of The Big Band Theory.

Cuoco is no stranger to Hollywood relationships. She recently split from musician Bret Bollinger this past winter, was engaged to addiction specialist Josh "Lazie" Resnik and even secretly dated her co-star Johnny Galecki for two years.

5. 'Teen Mom' Star Farrah Abraham Enters Rehab

Former Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham has checked herself into rehab for alcohol abuse, she confirmed to Radaronline.

"I'm 22 and I want to make better choices and ensure I can recognize when I am putting myself in a bad situation next time," she said in a statement to Radar, describing the decision as a "preventative step" to ensure that she stays on the right path. "At this time in my life, I need to stay focused on the positive to get through all of the negative that a DUI has caused in my life."

She will undergo intensive counseling over the next 10 days at The Lukens Institute, a luxury center, in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., beginning Monday, July 1.

Abraham was arrested in March for DUI in Nebraska, after failing a breathalyzer test and allegedly having nearly twice the legal blood alcohol level.
