Welcome to the Smart Set. Every morning we bring you the gossip coverage, filtered. Today: Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig are on their way to being indie sweethearts, Rihanna's label isn't crazy about Chris Brown either, and Ashley Judd is having a nice week.
It seems Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig looked very couple-y at a screening of her new movie Damels in Distress on Monday night. According to a source, they showed up together and "remained side-by-side in a banquette with pals all night." Baumbach directed Gerwig in the good-but-flawed Greenberg, and split with wife Jennifer Jason Leigh in November 2010. [Page Six]
We can add Roc Nation Records to the list of people and institutions Rihanna has ignored in order to once again start making time with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown. A source says that management at the label "banned her from reuniting" with Brown, but apparently she just went ahead and did it anyway. The source says there's also fear at the label that Rihanna will "secretly record an album with Brown, just to defy them," which seems like one of those things record contracts are designed to prevent, but nonetheless would be worrisome for all sorts of reasons.
