Neil Patrick Harris Says He Did Not Drop the N-word at the Tonys While Onstage with Mike Tyson
Several sources, including TMZ and the "Daily Mail", have accused NEIL PATRICK HARRIS of dropping the N-word while hosting the Tony Awards on Sunday night.
It happened during the opening number . . . while Neil was singing onstage alongside MIKE TYSON.
We assume the song was called "Bigger", because that word is repeated over and over again. But at one point after Tyson hits the stage, it does sound like he says a DIFFERENT word . . . yeah, the racial slur that RHYMES with the song title.
TMZ says, quote, "We've played it back dozens of times, and can't come up with another explanation [than it being the N-word]."
However, Neil says this is ABSURD. He Tweeted, quote, "Really, 'Daily Mail'?!? The N-word? That's your story?!? I would NEVER be so disrespectful and frankly, neither should you."
He didn't clarify what he DID say . . . but he could very well be singing, quote, "Tonight is BIGGER." After all, that was the refrain throughout the song, and he sang that exact lyric SEVEN SECONDS before the one in question. He'd also been singing and dancing so maybe he was just out of breath and didn't emphasize the B in Bigger at that point.
CBS hasn't commented, and neither has Mike Tyson.
Jane Lynch is Getting Divorced
JANE LYNCH and her wife, a psychologist named Dr. Lara Embry, have split up after three years of legally-sanctioned scissoring. They got married in June of 2010 in Massachusetts.
Lynch released a statement saying, quote, "Lara and I have decided to end our marriage. This has been a difficult decision for us as we care very deeply about one another."
Since Jane and her soon-to-be ex-wife live in California, that's probably where the divorce will be handled. Even though gay marriage isn't legal there, they do recognize marriages performed in states where it is.
California is a 50/50 state when it comes to splitting the marital assets, and sources say there was no prenup. (Jane is 52 . . . Embry is 44.)

Warner Brothers is Passing on the "Dumb and Dumber" Sequel . . . But It Isn't Dead Yet
JIM CARREY finally agreed to team back up with JEFF DANIELS to make a "Dumb and Dumber" sequel, and yet even that doesn't seem like enough to get this thing made without a hitch.
Warner Brothers has decided to pass on the movie . . . in part because Carrey's last movie, "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" didn't do very well.
The writer-director team of PETER and BOBBY FARRELLY are free to shop the movie to other studios.
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis May Marry in the UK
ASHTON KUTCHER and MILA KUNIS may be tying the knot soon and the wedding could be in Britain.
A source tells the Daily Star, “Mila and Ashton have fallen in love with the UK. They are desperate to get married as soon as possible because they want to start a family and are slightly old-fashioned about these things.
The first place they thought of was Stonehenge, but they’ve also been looking at the Royal Pavilion in Brighton. Mila loves the idea of a stately home or something in the English countryside. Although the venue may be spectacular, the wedding itself will be low-key. It’s expected it will just be Ashton, Mila and a few family and friends.”
