“Well, you know, I think people are in and out of your life. It’s nice to keep people you love around you,” she said of rumors that the former couple are rekindling their flame. “When you get older, lines get blurred. And you know what, I’m really busy. I’m about to go on tour for another year.”

The pop star and the actor broke up in February after dating for 10 months, but they recently reunited to attend an Ed Sheeran concert. While Perry merely vaguely explained that they’re enjoying being in each other’s lives, a source told PEOPLE they’ve “been in touch” since their breakup, but are just friends. Another source confirmed that they aren’t back together.

“They ended things as friends. They continue to be friends,” the first source said, with the second adding, “They have history and are open to seeing what happens.”

The former couple split just two days after attending Vanity Fair’s Oscars after-party together. Their representatives confirmed their breakup in a statement, saying, “Before rumors or falsifications get out of hand we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time.”

Texas mother upset, says 4-year-old son could not attend school because of long hair

A mother in the Houston, Texas, area is upset after she says her 4-year-old son was not allowed to go to school because of his long hair.

Jessica Oates told Inside Edition on Tuesday that Barbers Hill Kindergarten Center in Mont Belvieu, Texas, would not let her son, Jabez, in school because of his hair.

“When I went to enroll my child, I asked about the policy on hair. I was told my son would be allowed to keep his hair,” Oates said. “I was getting him all geared up for school. I took him to school and it was no big deal.”

Oates said that she was told she would only need to bring a document proving that the reason for her son’s long hair was religious or cultural. She said her family is part Cocopah Indian and in that culture, hair is a seen as strength.

The Barbers Hill School District has a policy that boy’s hair has to be above the eyes, ears and neck, KTRK reported.

“On Monday, I tried to take to my son to school, and I put his hair in a bun and I tied it with a little black hair tie. They said that the black hair tie was inappropriate and they would not allow him to go,” Oates told Inside Edition.

Oates said the policy is sexist “because they have no hair policy for girls” and that the policy is “outrageous and outdated.”

Barbers Hill School District issued the following statement on the matter to KTRK:

“Our local elected Board has established policy based on community expectations, and Barbers Hill administration will continue to implement the said policy.”

Oates plans to challenge the policy.

“I don’t believe that short hair should be required to get an education,” she said.

Couple to receive $3.4 million in ‘satanic day care’ case

Dan and Fran Keller, who spent more than 21 years in prison after they were accused of sexually abusing children during satanic rituals at their South Austin day care, will receive $3.4 million from a state fund for those wrongly convicted of crimes.

Shortly after receiving the news Tuesday, an ecstatic Fran Keller said they will no longer have to live on the brink of destitution, unable to find jobs at their ages and with their convictions, even if overturned by the state’s highest criminal court.

“This means we don’t have to worry about pinching pennies on Social Security, and late bills. That means we will actually be free. We can start living — and no more nightmares,” said Fran Keller, 67.

Their to-do list includes getting a house, vehicle, health insurance and better hearing aids for Dan Keller, 75.

The Kellers’ lawyer, Keith Hampton, said the couple will collect two checks totaling $3.44 million Wednesday at the state comptroller’s office, which administers the compensation fund.

“They’re happy, and I’m happy for them,” said Hampton, who worked for no charge in getting the Kellers released and declared innocent.

The Kellers received news of the payments as they stood outside the Williamson County Jail while awaiting the release of Greg Kelley on bail Tuesday.

Kelley, serving a 25-year sentence for a child sexual assault charge, has maintained his innocence and also is being represented by Hampton, who phoned the Kellers with news of the state payments while he was inside the jail arranging Kelley’s release.

The state’s wrongful conviction compensation fund pays $80,000 for each year in prison, plus a matching annuity that provides annual payments.

The Kellers’ 1992 trial made national news after three children accused them of participating in satanic rituals that included videotaped orgies, dismembered babies and tortured pets. No evidence of such activities was ever discovered, and the case against them collapsed about two decades later when the only physical evidence of abuse was acknowledged as a mistake by the examining physician.

Freed on signature bonds in 2013, the Kellers launched an effort to clear their names.

Hampton argued that the Kellers were the victims of a “satanic panic” that swept the nation in the early 1990s — fed in Austin by the combined efforts of inept therapists, gullible police and an investigation that spiraled out of control, eventually producing a suspect list of 26 ritual abusers, including an Austin police captain and many of the Kellers’ neighbors.

Leading psychologists and criminology professors explained how improper interview techniques and subtle encouragement by therapists produced believable-but-false memories in the children who accused the Kellers of abuse.

Travis County prosecutors, however, objected that the Kellers could not prove their innocence and continued to argue in court that Hampton’s piecemeal attack on the evidence lacked an ironclad alibi, DNA evidence or some other concrete proof that they were not guilty.

But while the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals overturned their convictions in 2015, its nine judges stopped short of declaring the couple innocent.

The Kellers’ circumstances changed in June, when Travis County District Attorney Margaret Moore filed court documents that declared the Kellers “actually innocent” under the law and dropped pending charges against them.

Moore said that when she took office in January, prosecutors had already decided that the case couldn’t be tried again and should be dismissed, leaving her to decide how to resolve the matter.

“By the end of my research and my review, it was clear to me what needed to be done, ” she said at the time. “In the end, it was my decision, and I made it.”

Now adults, several of the children who accused the Kellers opposed the move, according to Moore and family members.

Chelsea Clinton comes to Barron Trump’s defense after he was criticized for his clothing choices

Chelsea Clinton is, once again, standing up for President Donald Trump’s 11-year-old son, Barron, after he was criticized for his clothing choices.

>> Read more trending news

On Monday, the conservative website The Daily Caller published a story criticizing Barron for the fact that he doesn’t always dress up when he accompanies his parents.

The article’s author stated that, although he’s been “on the Barron Trump train” since the beginning, he thinks it’s time the first son started “dressing the part.”

Think about how many times your parents forced you to dress up when you were a kid for a special occasion. No matter how hard you resisted, it was inevitable, you weren’t leaving the house until you had your tie tied, your shirt tucked in nice and neat with your hair combed, and a blazer on. That’s not how it goes for the president’s youngest child.

The article included pictures of Barron accompanying his parents from New Jersey to Washington, D.C., clad in a red T-shirt, khaki shorts and suede loafers.

Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton did not appreciate the author going after a child and expressed her displeasure on Twitter, writing in a tweet Monday night, “It’s high time the media & everyone leave Barron Trump alone & let him have the private childhood he deserves.”

This isn’t the first time Clinton has come to Barron’s defense. In January, Clinton defended the first son after people on social media started mocking him for the way he acted during his father’s inauguration.

Two days after the inauguration, she wrote in a tweet, “Barron Trump deserves the chance every child does-to be a kid. Standing up for every kid also means opposing @POTUS policies that hurt kids.”
