ASHTON KUTCHER got into a fight with a security guard at the Stagecoach country music festival in Indio, California over the weekend.


TMZ says that Ashton was in the VIP area when a woman approached to say hi and shake his hand, and Ashton was cool with that.


But for some reason, the security guard shoved both Ashton and the woman . . . which resulted in Ashton and the guy getting into a "violent" shoving match.


Ashton's friends had to pull him away, and then they left.  Witnesses say this was NOT Ashton's fault, and the security guard was way out of line.



No One Wants Rob Kardashian’s Socks


Rob Kardashian's designer sock line is slumping. 


A source tells RADAR Online, “Rob’s socks sold around the Christmas holiday, but since then no one has been really buying them. We actually had to ship a bunch out to other stores because they weren’t moving at all. To be honest, a lot of customers bought them more as a gag gift. At this point it doesn’t look like we’re going order anymore.”

Miley Cyrus Is a Star . . . So She Doesn't Have to Show Us Her Boobs


MILEY CYRUS has shown a lot of side-boob over the years.  But she's never going to show us any FULL-boob.  At least not on purpose.  She doesn't have to lower herself to that, because she's a STAR.


She tells the British version of "Elle",quote, "A star is someone who doesn't have to take her clothes off to be sexy because you naturally have star power.  Sex does sell, but you have to find a way that's not just showing your [boobs].


"I don't want to be a glorified model.  They just walk on stage and it's all about their clothes . . . or lack of clothes." 



"Pain and Gain" Is the New #1 Movie in America


It was a sluggish weekend at the box office, but "Pain and Gain" is your new #1 movie.  The MARK WAHLBERG and DWAYNE JOHNSON action comedy made $20 million to take the top spot.


The ensemble comedy "The Big Wedding" came in 4th place with $7.5 million .. . while that REESE WITHERSPOON movie"Mud" had a decent showing in limited release with $2.2 million, but just missed the Top 10 finishing in 11th place.


Here arethis week's Top 5 movies:


1. (NEW)  "Pain and Gain", $20 million. 


2.  "Oblivion", $17.4 million.  Up to $64.7 million in its 2nd week.


3.  "42", $10.7 million.  Up to $69.1 million in its 3rd week.

"Two and a Half Men"Has Been Cleared for Another Season . . . But Will Angus T. Jones Be Back?


CBS has renewed "Two and a Half Men" for an 11th season.  ASHTON KUTCHER and JON CRYER have signed one-year deals to return, but ANGUS T. JONES' status is still up in the air.


Last fall, Angus dissed the show in an interview with a religious website called "Forerunner Chronicles".  He expressed moral objections to the show . . . called it "filth" . . . and suggested that people stop watching it.


He later apologized . . . sort of . . . but didn't really take anything he said back.


It's unclear if Angus is interested in coming back part time.  Supposedly,they're still negotiating.  "Us" magazine reports that it was Angus' decision to take on a lesser role, because he wants to focus on MUSIC.


A "source" says Angus is into making electronic, quote, "SKRILLEX-style tracks."  But other sources say he wants to go to college. Angus is 19 years old.  He hasn't commented on any of this.

Mark Wahlberg to the Rescue: Marky Mark Says He'd Reunite the Funky Bunch . . . to Help Boston


MARK WAHLBERG may be coming to the aid of Boston . . . his hometown.  He says he would reunite MARKY MARK AND THE FUNKY BUNCH to raise money for the victims of the Boston Marathon Bombing.


Technically, it wasn't Mark's idea.  The paparazzi asked him if he'd do a, quote, "once in a lifetime concert" with the Funky Bunch to help the city, and Mark said,quote, "Absolutely . . . why not?" 


Last month, Mark said he MIGHT reunite the Funky Bunch . . . they just had to, quote, "find the right time."  Well, THIS would be the right time.  And just days after Mark's comment, the Funky Bunch said they'd be down. Naturally.

OLIVIA WILDE and HOWIE D of the BACKSTREET BOYS have gone on record saying JUSTIN BIEBER needs to KEEP HIS FRIGGIN SHIRT ON.  But now, someone is coming to Justin's defense.


Not surprisingly, it's MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY. During an interview with MTV, Matthew was asked what he thought about the flak Justin's been getting for not wearing a shirt.


He said,quote, "He keeps doing it in airports right? . . . I think, he's flying private, he can wear whatever he wants."

Executive producer Nigel Lythgoe says, quote, "I have not been included in any conversation regarding replacing Mariah with Jen this season."


And a Fox spokesperson says, quote, "This is just another ridiculous "Idol" judge rumor, likely started by talks of Jennifer performing on the finale."


TMZ claims J-Lo IS coming back to perform a new single on "Idol" on May 16th . . . but so-called"sources" tell them that "Idol" DID consider bringing J-Lo back to take over for Mariah for the rest of the season.


Apparently, this was part of a plan to stop the show's ratings slide.


The "Hollywood Reporter" was the first to report on the possible J-Lo-for-Mariah swap.  They say the plan was shut down after Mariah threatened legal action.



Gwyneth Paltrow Has Been Named the Most Beautiful Woman in the World


The "Star" recently named GWYNETHPALTROW the Most Hated Celebrity in Hollywood. Well, "People" magazine obviously has a different take, because they just crowned her the Most Beautiful Woman in the World.


Gwyneth says, quote, "When I first heard that I was gonna be on the cover . . . I honestly thought someone was playing a joke on me.


"And I had to reread the email three times.  I was like, 'This can't be true.  I've developed dyslexia.  I'm not reading right.'" 


(Gwyneth is 40 years old.  The issue hits newsstands tomorrow.)

David Spade's Message to Reese Witherspoon


The paparazzi caught up with DAVID SPADE the other night, and asked him about REESE WITHERSPOON.  Specifically, they asked him about her playing the "Do you know who I am?" card.


And he said, quote, "The general rule is . . . If you have to explain to someone you're famous, then you're technically not that famous."


He added,quote, "[When people] won't let me in somewhere I go, 'Great,thanks.'  I don't try to explain to them I'm a big deal, because clearly I'm not big enough of a deal."

Some reports say Khloe was FIRED . . . but others say it was a mutual decision,because it was becoming too difficult to work around her schedule, with all the other nonsense she's doing.  There's no official word, though.


(SIMON COWELL and DEMI LOVATO are returning as judges.  Fox still hasn't announced replacements for departing judges BRITNEY SPEARS and L.A. REID.)

Rob has been struggling to lose weight in recent months . . . and we should probably add that one of the things Rob hates about being heavy is . . . that, quote, "my penis looks so small now."


But he adds, quote,"The upside is, every time you lose 10 pounds you gain an inch on your penis."

Reese Witherspoon and HerHusband Were Arrested Friday in Atlanta


REESE WITHERSPOON and her husband Jim Toth were ARRESTED early Friday morning in Atlanta.  He was popped for DUI, and they took Reese in for disorderly conduct.  Here's what happened . . .


Police saw a car weaving sometime after midnight Friday, so they pulled it over. Jim was driving, and Reese was riding shotgun.


As the cops were dealing with Jim, Reese started getting impatient and agitated. One of the cops says, quote, "She began to hang out the window and say that she did not believe that I was a real police officer."


He say she told Reese to sit down and be quiet.  Once her husband was placed under arrest, Reese got out of the car.  The cop told her to get back in, but she said she was a U.S. citizen, and was allowed to, quote, "stand on American ground."


So he tried to take her by the arms, but she resisted, and said, quote, "Do you know my name?"  When the cop said no, he didn't need to know her name, she replied, quote, "You're about to find out who I am . . . You are going to be on national news."


At that point, she was cuffed and arrested.


As for Jim, he told police he'd only had one drink several hours earlier.  But they gave him a breathalyzer test and he blew a .139 . . . which is significantly higher than the legal limit of .08.


Reese was booked under her given name, Laura Jeanne Reese Witherspoon. 



Snoop's 4/20 Party Was Shut Down Before He Even Got There


SNOOP LION tried to throw a 4/20 party at a mansion in the Hollywood Hills, but it got shut down before he even showed up.


The"Snoop Lion 420 Festival" kicked off on Saturday morning.  But neighbors called police to complain about the noise and "parking issues."


So cops showed up and shut it down at around 11:00 A.M.  Snoop had just arrived as things were being wrapped up, and sources say he was cooperative and understanding.



Kendra Wilkinson Was Involved in a Car Accident Yesterday . . . But She Will Not Die


KENDRA WILKINSON was hospitalized yesterday after a car accident in Tarzana,California.  We don't have any details on the crash yet, but sources say it was pretty bad.


Kendra was said to be,quote, "in shock and really sore" when she arrived at the hospital.  But luckily, her injuries weren't serious, and she didn't even have to stay overnight.



Justin Bieber Posted a Picture of Himself Snuggling with Selena Gomez . . . Then Deleted It


It looks like things could be back ON between JUSTIN BIEBER and SELENA GOMEZ.  On Saturday, Justin posted a picture of them snuggling . .. then quickly took it down.  


Selena flew to Oslo,Norway for Justin's concert on Thursday night . . . then reportedly followed him to Copenhagen for his gig on Saturday.


A source who saw them together says, quote, "They were holding hands, hugging and they kissed on the lips.  They looked really in love, like no fights ever happened before.  It definitely looked like they were back together." 



Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries Have Ended Their Divorce Battle


KIM KARDASHIAN and KRIS HUMPHRIES settled their divorce on Friday, and it sounds like it went pretty much the way we heard it would.  Kris basically dropped his attempt to get the marriage annulled on the basis of fraud.


He also gets NOTHING out of Kim.  Not even legal fees.  They both walk away clean. 


Kris had been demanding $7 million . . . but much like the annulment, this was something else he never really had a shot at getting, thanks to an iron-clad prenup.


They're not 100% divorced yet . . . the court still has to sign off on it.  That will reportedly happen sometime before June 19th.

GARTH BROOKS is being sued by his former business partner . .. a woman named Lisa Sanderson.  She's asking for $425,000 in unpaid bonus and salary, plus punitive damages. 


Sanderson claims she was a big shot Hollywood producer when Garth hired her 20 years ago to jumpstart his TV and movie career.  But she says Garth's ego got in the way of every project she lined up.


For example, he said no to being a sniper in "Saving Private Ryan" because he, quote, "Wanted to be the star .. . and was unwilling to share the spotlight with TOM HANKSMATT DAMON and EDWARD BURNS." 


 She says Garth turned down "Twister" because he didn't want to play second fiddle to a tornado.  And, in what sounds like huge sour grapes, Sanderson is also claiming Garth is a tax fraud. 


And yes, Garth's people issued a statement.  Here it is:  "Mr. Brooks, of course, denies everything in the lawsuit filed by Lisa Sanderson.  Mr. Brooks and Red Strokes Entertainment will take the necessary steps toward resolving this matter through the legal system."
