He is basically using [China] as a tool to show that people still want his basketball services. Lamar is delusional and really thinks he will play in the NBA again, and if there are offers on the table, then he believes he will get more, especially in the NBA.”
Female First also claims Lamar is mad at his dad and is no longer going to pay his $2,900 monthly rent.

Jon Gosselin Pulled a Gun on a Photographer and Fired a Warning Shot
JON GOSSELIN must really want to stay out of the limelight . . . because on Friday, he pulled a gun on a photographer who followed him to his home in rural Pennsylvania. He even fired a WARNING SHOT.
The female photographer was waiting for Jon when he got off work waiting tables at the Black Dog tavern in Beckersville, Pennsylvania. She followed him home to his cabin in the woods . . . yes, he lives in a cabin in the woods, with no TV or Internet access.
What she didn't realize is that once they got onto a series of dirt roads, they were on his property.
She started snapping pictures, and that's when Jon went DOG NUTS. He started approaching her, yelling that she was trespassing. Then he pulled a gun out of the back of his pants and fired a shot.
The photographer got back in her car and took off, but Jon followed her until she was back on the main road.
She went to the police to file a report, but she didn't pursue charges . . . probably because SHE was the only one who broke the law. She was TRESPASSING, and Jon was most likely within his rights to fire the weapon on his property.
He says, quote, "The message that I take my family's privacy seriously was sent loud and clear. I trust that she will respect that in the future."

"I will tell you when I realized that I thought, 'All right, if I don't calm down I'm gonna be in serious trouble.' I was in the middle of doing voiceovers, you know?
"And I remember closing my eyes in between each page because looking at the page and the words at the same time was too much stimulation for my brain."
She adds, quote, "I mean, I wasn't ready to go run naked in the streets. Let's make that very clear. But I had reached a point where I just couldn't take in anymore stimulation. Ok? That's what I meant by that." (The interview will air in several parts, beginning tomorrow night.)

"And it's that magic moment when a song finds the right artist, the right singer, and it becomes a synchronicity of that moment in time.
"Miley harnessed into something very special. She's just Miley. She's an artist, she's real. I think that's what's happened over the years, Miley has been reinventing her sound.
"She's evolving as an artist herself. I think that it's all of what everyone is calling controversy now. That's still my Miley."
Piers then asked Billy Ray if he knew what she was going to do ahead of time. He replied, quote, "I knew that she wanted to do something really special and something that everybody was gonna be talking about.

Is Jim Carrey Headed for a Mental Breakdown?
While everyone is waiting for MILEY CYRUS or JUSTIN BIEBER to have a mental breakdown, JIM CARREY might just sneak up and beat them both to it.
The not-always-reliable "National Enquirer" says that Jim's failed relationship with JENNY MCCARTHY and diminishing box office appeal are starting to wear him down.
A source says, quote, "Jim has suffered from severe depression in the past, and you have to worry those fearful days are coming back again. When you talk to him, he's not as animated as he used to be. He seems at a low point."
The source adds, quote, "Jim thought he and Jenny were going to be together for a lifetime . . . He's been searching for real love, and there's no one to replace Jenny."
To make things even worse for Jim, Jenny is currently co-hosting "The View" and getting it on with DONNIE WAHLBERG. Meanwhile, the closest thing he's had to a hit in years was "Mr. Popper's Penguins" in 2011.
The source adds, quote, "The joys of life have been eluding him, and seeing Jenny move on makes him ache for what they had. He's in a fragile emotional state. Pals fear for his future."
Is Jennifer Aniston Pregnant?
US Weekly claims JENNIFER ANISTON and JUSTIN THEROUX are expecting a baby.
A source tells the mag, ''She is scared of having a miscarriage, given her age, so they are not saying anything until she is six months along. They’re extremely happy. This is the baby Jen always wanted. Her stylist has to redo her whole press tour wardrobe.''

Did Britney Spears Vomit Just Before Making Her Big Vegas Announcement?
As expected, BRITNEY SPEARS announced an upcoming two-year residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas on "Good Morning America" yesterday.
It's called "Britney: Piece of Me", and it'll include 50 performances a year.
As part of the insanity, Britney arrived in Vegas in a helicopter, where she was "surprised" by more than 1,000 of her fans, who had gathered in the desert in the middle of the night. (It was around 3:00 A.M. local time.)
But it sounds like the helicopter did a number on her stomach.
She said, quote, "It's craziness. It's so chaotic. Actually, I got SICK in the helicopter. I was like 'Oh, my God!' But this is amazing . . . it's so cool."
Technically, Britney didn't SAY that she vomited . . . but that's the most amusing interpretation of her "getting sick," so we'll go ahead and assume that's what happened.
She later Tweeted, quote, "Y'all that will be the last time you EVER see me in a helicopter. Love you 'Good Morning America' and that was INCREDIBLE . . . but helicopters are not for this girl."
The "Good Morning America" report also revealed that tickets to her show go on sale on Friday . . . and will range from $59 to $179 a pop. The show launches on December 27th.
Britney also announced that her next album, which doesn't have a title yet, is scheduled to come out on December 3rd. Naturally, it'll include her new single, "Work [B-word]".
Jennifer Aniston Wouldn't Let Justin Theroux Display His "STD Art"
When JENNIFER ANISTON and JUSTIN THEROUX moved in together, she wouldn't let him display his STD ARTWORK. I'm not making this up.
Justin tells "GQ" magazine that Jennifer made him move his STD ARTWORK out of their Bel Air mansion.
He says, quote, "I have these beautiful wax-museum pieces, handmade, from the 1800s, from a museum of curiosities.
"They're just these open mouths, with tongues, and in the throats are different stages, labeled, of syphilis and gonorrhea and whatever . . . They weren't going to be above the fireplace anytime soon."
Justin didn't get rid of them altogether though. They're in his office in L.A.
Justin also reveals that one of the reasons he and Jennifer bought their $21 million home is because it came with SIX CHICKENS. He says, quote, "[The previous owners] were like, 'Of course we'll get rid of the chickens.'
"And we said, 'Are you crazy? Don't get rid of the chickens. That's half the reason we wanted this place.'"
Sara Bareilles Doesn't Think Katy Perry Stole Her Song
When KATY PERRY released her hit "Roar", there was some talk that she may have ripped off a SARA BAREILLES song called "Brave".
Well, Sara has finally weighed in . . . and she says Katy is in the clear.
She explains, quote, "I don't feel like anything was taken from me artistically. I wasn't the one having any problems with it. I've known Katy a long time. We're friends and she and I spoke about it."
She adds that they considered releasing some kind of mash-up in response to the accusations . . . to, quote, "let everybody know we're not mad at each other."
Regardless, Sara didn't mind having this "controversy" run its course, because everyone was talking about "Brave". She says, quote, "I was stoked . . . I was like, 'You guys want to go get [mad] about something and buy my music, that's great.'"
Brad Pitt Took a Photo With a Bride and Groom When He Happened to Be in the Same Hotel as Their Wedding
BRAD PITT showed up at a British hotel one day last week for a meeting . . . and there just happened to be a wedding going on.
The groom, one Daniel Lingwood, noticed Brad and some other guys at a table in the bar and brought his bride Abi over for a picture.
Abi says, quote, "He congratulated us on our wedding said I looked great in my dress, shook our hands and said to pose for a picture. He was very accommodating. Unfortunately I didn't get a kiss from him!"
The WOMEN at the wedding went NUTS, and rushed over for pictures. Brad accommodated a few of them, but then said, quote, "This is the last one, we are trying to have a meeting."

It's official: MILEY CYRUS and LIAM HEMSWORTH are finished. Reps for both of them confirmed it yesterday.
There are two theories as for why it ended . . . and we've heard them both before.
First, there's Liam's frustration with Miley's new image and attitude. Sources say it's, quote, "not what he signed up for."
Then there's Liam's alleged CHEATING. There have been rumors of an affair with "Mad Men" minx JANUARY JONES. And now the "New York Post" says he hooked up with a, quote, "random brunette" at the Toronto Film Festival last week.
Of course, BOTH things could be true: Liam could be looking for love elsewhere BECAUSE he's fed up with Miley's antics.
Whatever the case, Liam was partying in Las Vegas Saturday night after the FLOYD MAYWEATHER fight, and he spent the night pretty much stapled to a sexy Mexican actress named Eiza Gonzalez.

Katy Perry "Outs" Rihanna As a Huge Pot Smoker
It shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that RIHANNA enjoys the occasional reefer cigarette. But her friend KATY PERRY kind of called her on it in an interview with "Elle Canada".
She said, quote, "I think Rihanna always looks so fresh and I'm like, 'How do you do that? We all know how much pot you smoke!' And you don't sleep because you're on Instagram at 4 o'clock in the morning!"
Speaking of these two . . . Katy's new single "Roar" just hit #1 on the "Billboard" Pop songs radio airplay chart. That means that Katy and Rihanna are now tied for the most number ones in the 21-year history of that chart. They both have 10.
AMC Is Developing a "Walking Dead" Spin-Off
AMC recently announced that they were doing a "Breaking Bad" spin-off . . . and now, they're developing another "Walking Dead" show.
The new one will be set in the same zombie-apocalypse universe as the "Walking Dead" . . . but it'll involve "an entirely new story and cast of characters." There's no title yet, and the show isn't expected to debut until 2015.
There were reports that the show was going to be called "Spread the Dead". That's not true.
"Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirkman says, quote, "The opportunity to make a show that isn't tethered by the events of the comic book, and is truly a 'blank page,' has set my creativity racing."

After doing a cooking demo, Deen put her face up to a camera, smiled and said, quote, "I'm back!"
Could Katie Couric Eventually Replace Barbara Walters on "The View"?
There's some talk on the World Wide Web of Misinformation that KATIE COURIC may replace BARBARA WALTERS on "The View" after Barbara retires next year.
The "New York Daily News" says it's "likely" that Katie's talk show will be CANCELED sometime this winter, because it's struggling in the ratings. On top of that, Katie isn't happy with the show's, quote, "gossipy" direction.
So-called "sources" say Katie might work out better on "The View" . . . because viewers like her more with co-hosts than they do when she's on her own . . . and, quote, "Even [viewers] not liking her can work in the show's favor and her favor."
However, Katie shot the rumor down on Twitter . . . saying, quote, "Wow! Appreciate the interest but . . . completely not true. Crazy how these things get repeated. Guess it's just the world we live in!"
Is Justin Bieber Playing Robin in the "Batman vs. Superman" Movie . . . Or Is It All Just a Gag?
It looks like JUSTIN BIEBER is having a little fun at the expense of comic book fans.
The other day, he posted a picture of the SUPPOSED script for the "Batman vs. Superman" movie. And it had his name stamped across the front of it.
Obviously, he's trying to imply that he's going to be IN THE MOVIE. And people have already begun speculating that he could be playing ROBIN. (Even though no one has even suggested that Robin will be part of the movie.)
But it sounds like this might just be part of a PRANK . . . because he also Tweeted, quote, "Off to do something funny or...die :)" (So hopefully this is all just hype for a parody video he's doing with FunnyOrDie.com.)
Speaking of Justin, he was one of tons of celebrities who hit up the FLOYD MAYWEATHER fight in Vegas on Saturday. But he and LIL WAYNE actually got to walk Floyd to the ring.

Khloe Kardashian Got Tested After Hearing that Lamar Odom Slept With At Least Five Other Women
The not-always-reliable Radar Online says KHLOE KARDASHIAN got tested for STDs after LAMAR ODOM admitted that he'd been unfaithful and didn't always use protection.
A source says, quote, "Lamar refused to admit to how many women it was, but Khloe knew it was at least five different women in the past year."
The source adds, quote, "She is healthy, thankfully, but never thought this would happen to her."

J.K. Rowling is Writing a Movie Based in the "Harry Potter" Universe . . . But It's Not About Harry
J.K. ROWLING is writing the screenplay for the first in a series of new movies based in the "Harry Potter" universe. But it's NOT about Harry. In fact, it's set 70 years before his time, and it's NOT a prequel to the Harry Potter stories.
Instead, it's based on "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" . . . a textbook that Harry and his friends had to read as part of their studies at Hogwarts. It was released as a REAL book in 2001.
The focus of these stories will be Newt Scamander, the fictional author of the book. And while it will have nothing to do with Harry, the producers say some of the characters might be, quote, "familiar to devoted fans."
What we're assuming is that the series will focus on Newt's travels around the world to locate and write about the creatures in the book.
(And here's some deep Harry Potter trivia for you: Newt's grandson Rolf Scamander goes on to marry Harry Potter's buddy Luna Lovegood.)
Carson Daly Is Joining the "Today" Show, and Stepping Down from "Last Call"

Carson is hosting a regular feature called "The Orange Room". The details are vague, but it sounds like it's going to be something where viewers interact with him over Twitter and social media, in real-time.
Apparently, the "Today" show is about to debut a brand new studio, and the "Orange Room" will be the "social media hub." It's reportedly about adding, quote, "analysis of real-time social data and reactions from the web."
Carson says, quote, "I'll be your digital doorman."
So where in the world is Carson going to find time for the new gig? Well, he'll continue to host "The Voice", as well as his radio show in L.A., but it sounds like he's ending his 11-year run on the NBC late-night show "Last Call".
NBC didn't specify what's happening . . . but they did say Carson would be remaining an executive producer on "Last Call", and hinted that plans for a, quote, "transition" would be announced later.

This one picks up right after the death of Elise, with Rose Byrne being questioned by the cops about whether she believes her husband is innocent of the murder.

Are Robin Thicke and Paula Patton Divorcing?
ROBIN THICKE has made a lot of money this summer acting like a single guy on the make. But maybe it's not all an act.

Well, even though Robin continues to claim that things are fine between him and wife PAULA PATTON behind the scenes, "Life & Style" magazine says the marriage is basically OVER.

Miley is reportedly dating a producer (slash) rapper who calls himself MIKE WILL.MADE.IT. Miley appeared on his recent track "23".
A source says, quote, "Everyone knows they're hooking up."
Meanwhile, Liam may be messing around with JANUARY JONES from "Mad Men". There were rumors back in January that the two of them made out at a party. But they pretty much died down.
But Liam supposedly sent January a text message recently that said, quote, "I want to [eff] you." There's no word if he got to carry that through.
A source says, quote, "Liam and Miley haven't officially split, but it's over. It's just that neither wants to pull the trigger."
Miley Might Retire Her Tongue
Even MILEY CYRUS is tired of seeing herself with her tongue hanging out. During an interview on some French TV show, she said, quote, "It's getting a little old. I'm going to have to retire it!''
She added, quote, ''For as long as it is, you would think that I could touch my nose. I mean I've tried it, I can't, I'm so close. I wish I had more control of it, I can't do any tricks, no four leaf clover, nothing!''
