ICYMI, blind items are anonymous tips from unconfirmed sources that share insights into the lives of Hollywood stars.

A blind item is essentially Hollywood gossip told through code. The tips often disclose private information behind Hollywood’s biggest stars, causing online speculation as to who is who. They cover everything from drinking habits, who’s dating who and up-to-no-good endeavors.
