-- Robert Kraft was seen leaving a reported pre-Oscars party in Beverly Hills this weekend, just hours after the news broke that he has been charged with soliciting prostitution.

Kraft reportedly attended a party hosted by billionaire Ronald Perelman on Friday night before showing up at Barry Diller and DVF’s annual pre-Oscars lunch on Saturday.

He was reportedly without his girlfriend, Ricki Lander.

Kraft was charged with soliciting prostitution on Friday after an investigation at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Florida.

-- We have a winner in the charity auction for Julian Edelman’s beard trimmings.

Fenway-area restaurant Hojoko placed the $8,500 winning bid for the beard hair and plans to display it inside the restaurant.

“We’re so excited. It’s so ridiculous,” Hojoko co-owner Nancy Cushman said.

Cushman and her husband, chef Tim Cushman, are fans of the Patriots and of Edelman. And Edelman is fan of them, too.

“When we saw [the beard> went up for auction, we thought we could support Julian, support the Boys & Girls Club of Boston, and just have fun with the whole thing,” Nancy said. “He’s been such a big supporter of ours, so we thought we would pay it forward for him as well.”

Along with the “a resealable zipper storage bag” full of beard, cut by Ellen DeGeneres on her show after the Patriots won Super Bowl LIII, Hojoko will also receive a photo of the cut in progress, autographed by DeGeneres.
