A Homeless Guy Punched Zac Efron in the Face . . . Was He Trying to Buy Drugs?
ZAC EFRON was punched in the face in a bizarre incident in the Skid Row area of downtown L.A. last weekend. It's a place filled with homeless people, and shady stuff that often involves drugs. Here's what we know . . .
For some reason, Zac and a bodyguard "mysteriously" ended up there after midnight on Saturday night. Cops spotted them in a fight with at least three other guys, and broke it up.
Zac told them his car ran out of gas, and while he was waiting for a tow truck, he threw a bottle out his car window. And the homeless people thought he was throwing the bottle at THEM.
He told police, quote, "It was the hardest I've ever been hit in my life." But no one was arrested because the cops considered it, quote, "mutual combat."
We're assuming Zac is okay . . . even though he broke his jaw four months ago in another bizarre incident, where he slipped and fell at his house.
Not surprisingly, some people are speculating that he was there to buy DRUGS. There's been a lot of talk over the past year about his alleged drug problem, and he was reportedly in rehab twice for cocaine abuse.
In any event, the bodyguard tells TMZ that Zac is a HERO. He says they were downtown to go to a restaurant . . . and were assaulted when they got stranded.
He claims the homeless men came at him with a "SPEAR," and stabbed him in the face, stomach, and chest. And Zac came to his DEFENSE . . . swinging a vodka bottle as a weapon, and, quote, "saved his life."
Nick Cannon Says He and Mariah Carey Didn't Have Sex Until Their Wedding Night . . . And He Also Dissed Kim Kardashian
In an interview yesterday, NICK CANNON said that he and MARIAH CAREY didn't have sex until their wedding night. Not surprisingly, it was all Mariah's idea.
He added, quote, "I [effed] the [crap] out of her." Of course, he was PROMPTED by the host to use that phrase, and he regretted it. He joked that Mariah was going to cuss him out for, quote, "bein' so crude and nasty."
Nick was also asked to name five famous women he's nailed, and he didn't really have any surprises. He copped out by starting with Mariah. Then he added Kim Kardashian, Christina Milian, Nicole Scherzinger and Selita Ebanks.
He added, quote, "This is L.A. . . . That's the whole purpose, you have sex with actresses, singers, models."
The interviewer didn't actually know about Kim . . . so Nick said, quote, "You just forgot because there's been a lot of people since me."
Then he tried to cover for himself by saying Kim was a "great girl" and saying that she and her family are, quote, "some of the most incredible people I've ever met in my life."
Stephen Colbert Says He Didn't Write An Offensive Tweet
On Twitter early Friday, STEPHEN COLBERT wrote that the offending tweet sent from his Comedy Central show's verified Twitter account was not written by him. He also says he's unaware who wrote it. The Colbert Show Twitter account also sent out tweets early Friday denying he had anything to do with the tweet.
On Wednesday's Colbert Report, Stephen made fun of Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder's recently announced Washington Redskins Original Americans Foundation. Snyder created the charity "to provide resources that offer genuine opportunities for Tribal communities," according to a press release, but Colbert mocked it as an attempt at positive PR for the NFL team and its controversial name, which many consider to be racist.
Playing off of Wednesday's segment, the verified Twitter account for The Colbert Show posted this tweet on Thursday to its 1 million followers:
I am willing to show #Asian community I care by introducing the Ching-Chong Ding-Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever.— The Colbert Report (@ColbertReport)
"Ching-Chong Ding-Dong" is a reference to a satirical Asian caricature Colbert has assumed on the show in the past, including a January 2011 segment attacking Rush Limbaugh. It was also part of Wednesday's segment about the Redskins.
After outrage erupted on the social network, the tweet was deleted, but not before the #CancelColbert hashtag started trending. (USA Today)
James Van Der Beek Once Let an Underage Justin Timberlake Use His Driver's License to Get Into a Club
Back in the late '90s, JAMES VAN DER BEEK let JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE use his driver's license to get into a club . . . and it WORKED.
It happened in Vegas . . . and at the time, both 'N SYNC and "Dawson's Creek" were just starting out. Justin was 17 years old, and James was 21.
James says, quote, "We were all going to some club and they were all too young. And so I went in and somehow passed my I.D. back so that Justin could get in with [it].
"Justin used it to get in, and then tried to pass it out so LANCE [BASS] could get in. [But] by the third time [the bouncers] saw a James Van Der Beek I.D., they were like, 'Ah, I don't think so James.'"
Weekend Box Office: Schwarzenegger's "Sabotage" is Up Against Russell Crowe in "Noah"
1. "Noah" (PG-13)
Russell Crowe plays Noah in the biblical story of the man chosen by God to build an ark and gather the world's creatures to survive the great flood. It's directed by Darren Aronofsky, the guy who did "The Wrestler" and "Black Swan".
Jennifer Connelly plays Noah's wife, and Anthony Hopkins plays Methuselah, the oldest living man. Emma Watson from the "Harry Potter" movies, "Percy Jackson" star Logan Lerman, and Nick Nolte are also in it.
The director actually won a contest back in the seventh grade for writing a poem about Noah, and he says, quote, "Noah's been kind of this patron saint in my life. We made sure everything we did in the film would respect the written word."
That included the ark's measurements . . . which is exactly 500 feet long.
2. "Sabotage" (R)
Arnold Schwarzenegger, "Avatar's" Sam Worthington, Josh Holloway from "Lost", Joe Manganiello from "True Blood", and Terrence Howard are part of a DEA task force that's being killed off on-by-one after one of them steals $10 million from a cartel drug bust.
There's a rumor going around the World Wide Web of Movie Gossip that BRADLEY COOPER is being considered as the next Indiana Jones.
There's already talk of HARRISON FORD coming back for a fifth installment, but he's 71 years old . . . and a "source" says that if they don't start filming within a certain window, they'll recast the part with a younger actor.
But a so-called "source close to the production" says Cooper is NOT being considered, and there are no plans for an Indiana Jones movie without Harrison Ford.
"Conscious Uncoupling" Explained By Gwyneth Paltrow
Ever since GWYNETH PALTROW used the phrase "Conscious Uncoupling" to explain her split from CHRIS MARTIN, the Internet has turned it into a joke.
In case you're wondering what it really means, she posted an explanation from some lifestyle gurus on her website.
Because the life expectancy of human being has increased so much, we can't be expected to be able to stand being in a relationship with just one person for an entire lifetime. Therefore, we need to stop treating divorce as a failure.
Instead, we need to treat it as a LEARNING PROCESS where, quote, "there are no bad guys, just two people, each playing teacher and student respectively."
The "experts" add, quote, "When we understand that both are actually partners in each other’s spiritual progress, animosity dissolves much quicker and a new paradigm for conscious uncoupling emerges, replacing the traditional, contentious divorce.
"It's only under these circumstances that loving co-parenting can happen. It’s conscious uncoupling that prevents families from being broken by divorce and creates expanded families that continue to function in a healthy way outside of traditional marriage."
Did Angelina Jolie Let Her Son Buy a "Swearing Finger"?
BRAD PITT and ANGELINA JOLIE seem pretty liberal as far as child-rearing goes, so this wouldn't be too surprising: Angelina reportedly let her 10-year-old son Pax buy a SWEARING FINGER at a gift shop in Las Vegas.
The Swearing Finger is a hand that flips the bird, while hurling FILTHY insults.
The store manager says, quote, "I think she just lets them get what they want."
Eminem, Outkast and Kings of Leon are Among This Year's Lollapalooza Headliners

The complete roster is up at Lollapalooza.com.
For the 10th year in a row, Lollapalooza is being held in Chicago's Grant Park . . . and this year, it's happening over the August 1st weekend.
Three-day passes are already sold-out, but single-day tickets are still available.
GWYNETH PALTROW and CHRIS MARTIN are separating after 10 years of marriage. They have two children: A 9-year-old daughter named Apple and a 7-year-old son named Moses.
Gwyneth posted a statement on her website, GOOP.com. She said, quote, "It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate . . .
"We have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate. We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been."
The statement was titled "Conscious Uncoupling". (???)
"Us Weekly" says the whole family went to the Bahamas to escape a possible media frenzy.
Is Kanye West Buying Kim Kardashian Burger King Franchises as a Wedding Gift?
The not-always-reliable "Star" tabloid says that KANYE WEST has picked out a wedding gift for KIM KARDASHIAN: Burger King. (???)
He's supposedly buying her 10 Burger King franchises in England, Italy and France. Kanye owns several Fatburger restaurants in Chicago, and a so-called "source" says, quote, "That's where he sees her future career, away from reality TV."
Diddy Is Using the Name "Puff Daddy" Again, But He Says His Name Isn't Changing
It's been 15 years since DIDDY has used the name "Puff Daddy," but apparently, he's going back to it . . . at least, in some capacity.
In a preview for Diddy's upcoming "Big Homie" video, he credits himself as "Puff Daddy." Naturally, that caused everyone to think that he was changing his name again. But that isn't the case. Or it is? I don't know, it's very confusing.
Diddy Tweeted, quote, "For the record, I did not change my name. I always have been and always will be PUFF DADDY! :) Be cool. Man, LOL." (???) He added, quote, "Diddy or Daddy???"
"Big Homie" is the first single off the new Diddy (or Daddy) album. It's called "MMM", and it'll be out sometime this year.
Kathy Griffin is Getting Death Threats for Calling Demi Lovato the "Biggest Douche" She's Ever Met
KATHY GRIFFIN was answering fans' questions on Twitter, when someone asked her who's the, quote, "biggest douche celebrity" she's met.
Kathy said it was "probably" DEMI LOVATO . . . and added, quote, "Plus, she should calm the [eff] down 'bout Lady Gaga gettin' barfed on." Last week, Demi criticized Lady Gaga's vomit stunt, saying that it glamorized eating disorders.
Well, that incensed Demi's fan army, a.k.a. the "Lovatics." Some even sent Kathy DEATH THREATS, which she re-Tweeted. There were the standard, "You deserve to get cancer . . . or AIDS . . . or raped" ones.
There were also the typical "shut the [eff] up or we will kill you" ones . . . and a few that told her to kill herself, including one polite person who asked Kathy to "please" slit her throat.
Kathy liked this one, which may have been messed up by autocorrect: Quote, "I really hope you commit 'sue of side' tonight." And there's this gem: Quote, "Kathy, I'm going to stick you in the oven and kill you probably on broil." (???)
Kathy's initial Tweet about Demi seems to be gone from her feed. She insists that she didn't delete it, so it's unclear what happened.
By the way, Demi doesn't seem to like Kathy either. She posted a photo of her sticking out her tongue, and pointing her finger at Kathy in the background, with the caption: "Only a 'douche' to people I can't stand." She deleted it shortly afterward.
Late last night, she told her fans to COOL IT with the death threats. She Tweeted, quote, "I love you guys so much but y'all gotta chill with sending hate towards other people. Regardless of what they say or do."
She also sent this to Kathy: "No one should ever wish those things upon ANYONE. I apologize on others behalf. I do NOT approve of that at all. Sorry for that."
Will the Spice Girls Reunite for a Tour with the Backstreet Boys?
If the late '90s were your thing, this is for you: Britain's "Sun" tabloid claims the SPICE GIRLS are in talks to reunite, to do a tour with the BACKSTREET BOYS.
But this rumor has been around for a while now. The "Sun" claims BRIAN LITTRELL told them, quote, "We are actually in early talks about maybe doing a world tour together with the Spice Girls."
However, Brian's quote appears to be from last fall. And at that time, EMMA BUNTON denied that it was happening.
Either way, VICTORIA BECKHAM . . . "Posh Spice" . . . is NOT expected back. Earlier this year, she told "Vanity Fair", quote, "I won't ever do it again."
Dancing With the Stars was full of twists and turns Monday. And we're not talking about the samba or the Argentine tango.
Host Tom Bergeron drew a gasp from the audience as he announced at the start of the episode of Dancing With the Stars that not one, but two(!) stars would be going home Monday night.
So who got the boot?
Diana Nyad and Sean Avery, the hockey star.
A few other "interesting" developments happened last night as well.
- Jeremy Miller of Growing Pains showed up to say he's rooting for "both" Candace Cameron Bure and Danica McKellar, after it was revealed he dated both of them back in the day.
- It was announced that Julianne Hough will be back in two weeks as guest judge.
- And there was the big announcement about what the show is calling "The Switch Up." The stars will be switching their pro partners, as dictated by viewer Tweets.
Judge Joe Brown Was Arrested After Going on a Courtroom Tirade
JUDGE JOE BROWN'S TV show ended its 15-year run last year, but he was back in court yesterday . . . in REAL life . . . and things got a little crazy.
Brown was in a Memphis juvenile court, as a lawyer representing someone in a child support case, when he FLIPPED OUT on the judge . . . to the point where he was cited for contempt of court FIVE TIMES, arrested, and ordered to spend five days in jail.
It's unclear exactly what caused the outburst . . . but apparently, he wasn't getting what he wanted because he started yelling and repeatedly challenging the juvenile court magistrate's authority.
In any event, Brown is currently running to be the District Attorney in the same county where he was arrested . . . so this could mess up his campaign.
A Victory for Tolerance! Jerry Springer Will Stop Using the Word "Tranny"
Today is a great day for tolerance: JERRY SPRINGER has finally agreed to stop using the word "Tranny"!
Jerry suffered some backlash from LGBT groups after an episode of his show was titled "Trannies Twerk It Out". He claims he never knew the word could be offensive, which seems insincere.
He tells TMZ, quote, "I've just been educated. I won't use that term. I honestly had no idea that you're not supposed to use that term, so now we'll find another term to use . . .
"I'm not interested in offending people, so obviously I'll just change the term. There's no argument there."
Demi Moore is Feeling "Closure" Now That Mila Kunis is Pregnant
Ladies . . . when the guy who dumped you impregnates his next girlfriend, that's rarely a good feeling, right? Well, apparently it's cool for DEMI MOORE. Supposedly she's HAPPY that ASHTON KUTCHER and MILA KUNIS are expecting.
A source says, quote, "She actually considers this moment to be closure. She never really expected to get back with Ashton but this pretty much seals the deal that the moment of her life with him is now officially completed."
This hasn't been officially confirmed, but it's being reported all over the World Wide Web of Misinformation, so it's probably true:
ASHTON KUTCHER and MILA KUNIS are EXPECTING. Mila was reportedly spotted attending a prenatal yoga class in Hollywood, and a source says, quote, "They are both very, very happy. It's still early."
There was a report last week that Mila was expecting twins, but that's not true.
Mila's been wearing what appears to be an engagement ring for several weeks now. There's no word what came first: The fetus or the diamond. There's also no word if pregnancy will affect Mila's status as a spokeswoman for Jim Beam.
Whether she's pregnant or not, one thing we do know is that Ashton and Mila locked lips for the L.A. Clippers Kiss Cam.
Chris Hemsworth and Wife Welcome Twin Boys
Wife of Thor, ELSA PATAKY has given birth to twin boys, a rep for CHRIS HEMSWORTH confirms to E! News.
The couple welcomed their second and third child together on Friday. The names have not been revealed yet.
The happy couple is already parents to daughter India Rose, who will turn 2 years old in May.
41-Year-Old Alyssa Milano is Pregnant Again
ALYSSA MILANO is pregnant with baby number two!
Us Weekly was first to break the news and a rep for Milano has confirmed it to The Huffington Post.
Milano, 41, and husband David Bugliari are already parents to 2-year-old son, Milo. Last month, Milano told "Access Hollywood Live" that she and Bugliari are "actively trying" to give Milo a sibling.
Taylor Swift is Giving Selena Gomez the Tough Love Treatment
RADAR Online claims SELENA GOMEZ and TAYLOR SWIFT are on the outs because of JUSTIN BIEBER.
A source tells the site, “She feels like maybe Selena needs tough love. She thinks Justin is disgusting and has basically told Selena she can’t support their relationship and if she gets back with him their friendship will probably never be the same. Taylor may not have the best reputation with her dating life but at least she doesn’t keep going back to the same loser over and over again like Selena does. Selena’s parents and friends can’t stand Justin, but for some reason she just doesn’t care. She’s blinded by him and not realizing what and who she’s losing.”
In related news, Justin Bieber got the word 'forgive' tatted on his stomach during a flight to Canada. Maybe that's a message for Taylor?
"Divergent" Made $56 Million at the Box Office
"Divergent" made $56 million this weekend. It's the second-best opening of the year behind "The LEGO Movie", but still short of what most people were expecting. To compare, the original "Twilight" made $69.6 million when it came out in 2008, and "The Hunger Games" debuted with $153 million in 2012.
"Muppets Most Wanted" made $16.5 million in second place . . . and the Christian movie "God's Not Dead" had a good showing, earning $8.6 million in 5th place, despite being shown on only a quarter of the screens as the movies ahead of it.
Here are this week's Top 5 movies:
1. (NEW) "Divergent", $56 million.
2. (NEW) "Muppets Most Wanted", $16.5 million.
3. "Mr. Peabody & Sherman", $11.7 million. Up to $81 million in its 3rd week.
4. "300: Rise of an Empire", $8.7 million. Up to $93.8 million in its 3rd week.
OPRAH WINFREY'S next step in world domination: Tea. Oprah is teaming up with Starbucks to release her own tea.
It's called Teavana Oprah Chai Tea, and you'll be able to get it starting on April 29th at both Starbucks and the company's newly-acquired tea shops, Teavana. Proceeds will go to various charities, including Oprah's school for girls in South Africa.
Oprah says, quote, "My daily tea ritual is a vital part of my morning. Savory and spicy chai, with its deep flavor, has long been a favorite of mine . . . To share one of my favorite things with the rest of the world and support youth education at the same time is truly the perfect blend."
Charlie Sheen Gave Career Advice at His Daughters' Elementary School
As successful as CHARLIE SHEEN is . . . or WAS, depending on how you look at it . . . you might NOT want to take CAREER ADVICE from him. But of course, elementary school kids wouldn't know that.
Word has it Charlie showed up at a show-and-tell / career day thing at his daughters' school, and talked to the kids about being a TV actor.
His daughters Sam and Lola are 10 and 8, and he spoke to both of their classes. The girls' mom DENISE RICHARDS was there too . . . undoubtedly rolling her eyes throughout the whole thing.
Sadly, there's no video . . . so we don't know if Charlie played it casual, or if he got all fired up and ranted to the class about "Winning!" and living with goddesses.
John Travolta Sent Flowers to Idina Menzel to Apologize For Screwing Up Her Name
Apparently JOHN TRAVOLTA is still feeling bad about calling IDINA MENZEL the wrong name at the Oscars.
E! News says that the star sent Idina a giant bouquet of flowers about a week and a half ago to formally apologize for the snafu, which occured onstage at the 86th Annual Academy Awards when Travolta, for reasons we still don't quite understand, called her "Adele Dazeem."
"He sent her a big, gorgeous bouquet of flowers to her dressing room. It was HUGE. It was his apology to her," a source tells E! News.
Travolta sent the flowers to Menzel at the location of her new musical on Broadway, If/Then, at the Richard Rogers Theatre in New York.
Jordan Sparks is Ready to Marry Jason Derulo
JORDAN SPARKS tells Showbiz Spy that JASON DERULO is for her and hopes he proposes.
She says "We have forever. I’m already there — I know he’s the one. He might be already planning, I never know. He surprised me with those roses, so I don’t know what’s up his sleeve. We’ll see! His mom was like ‘You know, I’m gonna be 60 soon'. I’m not gonna be able to chase around kids’ and I was like ‘whoa’. When it happens it’ll happen. I definitely want to be married first and be with somebody I know I’m gonna be with forever. But I love kids. I would love to have a couple of my own one day.”
"The Voice" Adds Chris Martin for a New Format Change
"The Voice" is tweaking its format a little and adding a new mentor to the mix. And they made the announcement on SnapChat of all things.
COLDPLAY singer CHRIS MARTIN is joining the show for three episodes as a universal advisor that all four coaches can tap into.
They're also getting rid of the Knockout Round. The knockouts will be replaced with a new round where contestants will take turns performing the same song. It has the imaginative title of "Battles: Round Two."
Look for Chris to show up on the March 31st episode. He'll be back the following night, and then again for the April 7th episode.
Justin Bieber Claims He Failed His Sobriety Test Because He Had a Messed Up Foot
JUSTIN BIEBER has a FANTASTIC excuse for being unable to walk in a straight line following his DUI arrest in January: His foot was messed up.
According to newly released court documents, Justin told the cops that he was unstable during his sobriety test, because he had a hairline fracture in his right foot from a skateboarding accident three months earlier.
The documents also say Justin was a punk . . . once again . . . while talking to the arresting officer. Justin told him, quote, "I'm 19 years old. I'm just out having a good time."
The cop replied that HE wasn't driving around in a Lambo at that age . . . to which Justin responded, quote, "Yeah, well, I bet you didn't have millions of dollars in your bank account either."
(Justin tested positive for marijuana and Xanax, but his blood alcohol level was virtually ZERO.)
Miley Cyrus' Tour Bus Caught on Fire But She Wasn't on It
MILEY CYRUS' tour bus went up in flames the night before last.
Miley's sister Noah posted a series of videos on Instagram with the caption "Tour bus down!" She later confirmed on Twitter that no one was injured.
Miley was traveling to New Orleans, where she is scheduled to play a show tonight. TMZ said Miley was not on the bus at the time but Miley's mom and sister we're. The fire was caused by a tire that exploded, but thankfully, they both escaped unharmed. No one else on Miley's crew was injured.
There was one casualty however -- the stuffed bunny they got at Cracker Barrel earlier in the day. Noah Instagrammed the bunny photo after the accident.
There May Be a Kris Jenner Sex Tape
RADAR Online claims KRIS JENNER is being extorted by a man, who claims he has a sex tape of hers.
A source tells the site, ''The man has been demanding money from Kris. If he’s not paid, he claims, he’ll release the tape. He called Kris more than one hundred times in the last seven days, from more than 100 different phone numbers - he uses scrambled cell numbers.
At first she thought it was a joke, because she knew it couldn’t be real - obviously she would never allow herself to be taped like that! Initially, she just ignored it.''
So it sounds like if there is a video, whoever filmed it did NOT have permission from Kris.
The New "Star Wars" Movie Will Take Place 30 Years After "Return of the Jedi" . . . and the Only Confirmed Cast Member Is R2-D2
In a recent meeting with shareholders, Disney shed some light on the upcoming, seventh "Star Wars" movie. Here's what we now know:
The movie will be set 30 years after "Return of the Jedi" . . . and they will begin filming it in London in May. As we'd heard, it'll hit theaters in December of 2015.
They didn't say anything about the casting rumors that are out there, including the ones claiming ADAM DRIVER from "Girls" will play the main bad guy, and that "12 Years a Slave" star LUPITA NYONG'O is in talks for a role.
They did say that, for now, the only confirmed cast member is R2-D2. StarWars.com reports that the movie will star, quote, "a trio of new young leads along with some very familiar faces."
It seems likely that HARRISON FORD, CARRIE FISHER and MARK HAMILL will return in some capacity. And that would make sense age-wise, because it's also been just over 30 years since "Return of the Jedi" came out.
"Dancing With the Stars" Drama: Jeremy Miller from "Growing Pains" Once Dumped Candace Cameron for Danica McKellar
If you missed the premiere of "Dancing With the Stars" last night, then you missed some OLD-SCHOOL SITCOM DRAMA.
CANDACE CAMERON BURE from "Full House" and DANICA MCKELLAR from "The Wonder Years" are both competing. But it turns out the dance floor isn't the only thing they've shared.
Candace used to date JEREMY MILLER from "Growing Pains" . . . until he DUMPED HER FOR DANICA. Candace informed Danica of this fact during rehearsals, and of course they had VIDEO, which they played on the show.
Candace said Jeremy dumped her by PHONE. Danica seemed surprised to learn that she caused the breakup. Of course she could have been ACTING.
Chris Brown Was Booted from Rehab for Touching a Woman's Elbows and Hands
We now know why CHRIS BROWN was booted from rehab on Friday, and it's somewhat amusing. TMZ claims he broke THREE of the facility's rules, including: "Stay at least two feet away from the women."
Supposedly, the rule was in place for Chris specifically because of his notorious BEATDOWN of RIHANNA. Sources say he violated it by, quote, "touching elbows and hands with a woman."
TMZ claims Chris also had some sort of "sexual encounter" with a woman at the facility earlier this month . . . but for some reason, he didn't get in trouble for that.
The other two violations were: Chris refusing a drug test after returning from an authorized outing, and, quote, "making a mockery of rehab during a group session with some harsh comments."
It's unclear what he said at that time . . . but at some point in rehab, Chris also allegedly said, quote, "I'm good at using guns and knives." (???)
Chris was promptly arrested after he was kicked out, because he's not legally allowed to leave rehab. Now, he'll have to cool his heels in jail for a month . . . until a previously scheduled probation hearing on April 23rd.
Designer L'WREN SCOTT was found dead in her apartment yesterday morning of an apparent suicide. There are some conflicting reports on her age . . . some say she was 49, others say she was 47.
The police found her hanging from a doorknob with a scarf around her neck. No suicide note was found . . . but there were also no signs of forced entry or foul play.
L'Wren had been dating MICK JAGGER for at least a decade, with some sources saying they'd been together since 2001. He was with the ROLLING STONES in Australia at the time of her death.
As for WHY she may have committed suicide, friends say there were "no signs of depression" . . . but Britain's "Daily Mail" says it could've had to do with money.
Supposedly, her company was nearly $6 million in the red, and she owed her creditors another $7.6 million. The "Mail" reports that she was "embarrassed" to ask Mick for help, despite the fact that he's worth somewhere around $300 million.
Of course, that assumes Mick and L'Wren were still together. The "New York Post" claims L'Wren told a friend last week that Mick had DUMPED HER.
Mick hasn't commented directly . . . but his rep says, quote, "He's completely shocked and devastated by the news." When asked if they were still dating, the rep said, quote, "of course."
And he called the breakup report, quote, "a horrible and inaccurate piece of gossip during this very tragic time for Mick."
L'Wren designed clothes for a TON of celebrities, including: Angelina Jolie, Penelope Cruz, Amy Adams, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Lopez, Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman, Oprah, and even First Lady Michelle Obama.
The Stones were set to begin a brief Australian tour tomorrow . . . but Mick has already left to return to New York, so at least the first show will have to be canceled or postponed. There's no update yet from the band.
Is Alyssa Milano Getting Into Politics?
ALYSSA MILANO has spent much of her life acting and has also been incredibly successful fashion line for women who love sports. Now we're hearing she might give Washington D.C. A shot. Showbiz Spy claims Alyssa is planning to go into politics.
A source tells the site, “Alyssa wants to turn her political activism into action. Over the past few years, she’s ramped up her involvement in causes and wants to be taken seriously in the political arena. Alyssa has been in touch with Hillary Clinton’s team and has promised to campaign hard for her election. In return, she wants an appointment in the administration, perhaps on the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities. From there, Alyssa intends to hone her skills and eventually run for public office herself. Alyssa says her five-year plan is to transition out of acting and focus on a full-time political career. Her dream is to run for a Senate seat – and she hopes Hillary will become her personal political mentor.”

Honey Boo Boo's Mama Compares Herself to Kim Kardashian
Last night's "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" was the Halloween special where the family dressed up as the KARDASHIANS . . . or as they put it, the "KarTRASHians".
MAMA JUNE was quite proud of her KIM costume and even compared herself to the future Mrs. Kanye West.

Oprah says she once gave Gayle her UNDIES. She tells Showbiz Spy, “Back a lifetime ago, 1976, Baltimore. We were both on a local TV station. She was a production assistant. I was an anchor. We became friends, especially after a big snow storm. When she couldn’t go out, get home and didn’t have enough clothes, I said, ‘OK, you can have my underwear.’ But then I added, ‘And don’t return it.’

He tells "GQ", quote, "I tend to use as many [curse words] as I can think of. I don't do it around my 7-year-old, but I do around my 2-year-old, because she doesn't know what the hell I'm saying yet."

You know how girls do that? We’re talking like eight or nine years old now – it’s ridiculous. It was like, ‘She’s talking about you. You need to beat her up!’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah… I need to beat her up…’ It was so stupid. It was so dumb. I feel bad about it now. Now I’m thinking about, now the memory’s making me feel depressed.”

36 Famous Guys Lindsay Lohan Supposedly Hooked Up With
We don't know if this is legit, but LINDSAY LOHAN supposedly made a handwritten list of 36 famous guys she's had relations with, to impress some friends last year. And "In Touch Weekly" just posted it.
It includes Justin Timberlake, Adam Levine, James Franco, Zac Efron, Heath Ledger, Colin Farrell, and Joaquin Phoenix...
Evan Peters from "American Horror Story", Max George from The Wanted, Coldplay bassist Guy Berryman, Wilmer Valderrama, Lukas Haas, Garrett Hedlund from "Tron: Legacy" . . .
Jamie Dornan from the upcoming "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie, and actor Nico Tortorella from "The Following".
This list was reportedly handwritten by Lindsay herself, while she was hanging out with some friends at the Beverly Hills Hotel last January. A source says, quote, "She was trying to impress her friends with the list and then tossed it aside."
Supposedly, not all these guys were single when they hooked up with Lindsay so this list could cause problems in a few Hollywood relationships. There's no word how "In Touch" got its hands on it.

Lorde Turned Down Touring with Katy Perry
KATY PERRY is one of the hottest pop artists out there right now so you would think an artist new to the scene would jump at the chance to tour with her but that's not the case for LORDE.
Lorde tells Sugarscape that she turned down the chance to tour with Katy Perry.
Here's why: "I think in the really early stages of any artist’s career it’s important for them to establish themselves for themselves. I’m just basically really stubborn and I want to be really independent and so I wanted to be headlining my own shows as opposed to supporting someone else."
Speaking of LORDE, the NY Post claims she recently requested privacy while bowling. A source tells the paper, “Lorde and a group of 15 requested to not be disturbed by fans requesting pictures or autographs. Lorde is only 17 and did not drink, but enjoyed the laid-back vibe of the lounge and drew the curtains on the private lanes to insure privacy.”

"This is the worst interview ever. You are crazy. You got me in trouble."
Miley Cyrus Attacks Katy Perry for Dissing Her Tongue
KATY PERRY seemed to be joking when she said she broke off that kiss with MILEY CYRUS because, quote, "God knows where that tongue has been."
But it sounds like Miley didn't take it that way . . . and as a result, IT IS ON. Because she fired back with a Tweet that insulted both Katy and her ex-boyfriend JOHN MAYER.
She said, quote, "Girl if you're worried about where tongues have been good thing ur ex boo is ur EX BOO cause we ALL know where THAT [tongue's] been."
She might have tried to smooth things over, though, because her next Tweet was a picture someone had DRAWN of the two of them kissing, and Miley captioned it, quote, "Don't you act like you didn't love it."
And it sounds like Katy is taking all of this in stride, because she replied, quote, "Oooo gurrrl I'm gonna give you the BIGGEST spanking when I see you in the UK."
For the record, John Mayer's tongue has been with the following ladies: Jennifer Love Hewitt, Vanessa Carlton, Jessica Simpson, Cameron Diaz, Minka Kelly, Jennifer Aniston and Taylor Swift.

Are NBC and "The Tonight Show" Trying to Block Celebrities from Appearing on Other Networks?
If celebrities want to be on "The Tonight Show", they better not plan on hitting up any of the other networks.

Are Lamar Odom's Drug Dealers Stealing from the Kardashians?
Los Angeles police are investigating the theft of more than $200,000 worth of jewelry and other valuables from the home that KHLOE KARDASHIAN and LAMAR ODOM used to share.
And now, sources are saying that Lamar's former DRUG DEALERS are suspects.
Lamar supposedly owed TENS OF THOUSANDS of dollars to several dealers, and once he left for Spain to play basketball, they started texting him threats that they were going to break in and TAKE what he owed.
Meanwhile, the LAPD is also investigating the theft of $50,000 in cash from KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN'S house. And supposedly, they think the two incidents are related.

Simon apparently realized he was "born to be a dad" at age 54. Interestingly enough, that's the same age he realized he was NOT born to host a show called "X Factor" in the U.S.

Justin Bieber's Urine Test Video Will Be Released . . . But With His "Little Bieber" Censored
A Florida judge has ruled that video of JUSTIN BIEBER taking a URINE TEST after his DUI arrest WILL be released. But Justin's EQUIPMENT will be censored.
Several media outlets requested the video, and Florida law allows them access to evidence in a criminal case after it's been given to the defense. There's no word when we'll see the clip.
In addition to his urine test, Justin Bieber also had to bare all his tattoos, so the cops could take pictures of them. We assume they did it to keep a record of his identifying marks.
