KJ's Hollywood Dirt for 9/11/2014

Khloe Kardashian and French Montana Broke Up

KHLOE KARDASHIAN and rapper FRENCH MONTANA have broken up. A source says, quote, "It wasn't the perfect fit for her. They're still talking, though."

But another source says French got too NEEDY . . . quote, "The relationship got too heavy and Khloe needed to take a step back. It grated on her that he became so dependent on her."

Hilary Duff is Separated from her Husband, But Still Not Interested in Aaron Carter's Advances

HILARY DUFF says she and her husband MIKE COMRIE have, quote, "uncoupled, for now." And yes, she used that LOVELY term that GWENYTH PALTROW introduced us to. But she added that there's a chance they'll get back together.

Even if they don't, though, it sounds like she has NO INTEREST in her childhood boyfriend AARON CARTER . . . who's spent much of this year using the media to angle for a second chance with her.

She says, quote, "I keep seeing that, that he keeps doing that. I don't know how I feel [about it]. I mean, that was so long ago, and obviously I'm still married, and I have a baby and we kind of just . . . don't know each other . . . so, yeah."

(Hilary and Aaron dated when they were 15 . . . over a decade ago. In fact, Aaron started a feud between Hilary and Lindsay Lohan, by macking both of them at the same time.)

Do Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Have a Prenup That Includes an Infidelity Clause?

ANGELINA JOLIE and BRAD PITT are happily married now but given that both of them have taken the plunge into matrimony before, it wouldn't be all that surprising if they have a prenup.

According to the "Star" tabloid, Angie and Brad DO have a prenup AND it contains an INFIDELITY CLAUSE. It states that if Brad leaves her for another woman, Angelina gets primary custody of the kids.

It also states that in the event of a divorce, they each take the millions they brought into the marriage . . . while anything they earned as a married couple goes into a trust for the kids.

Brad is worth an estimated $240 million, and Angelina is worth $185 million.

Paris Hilton Gave Cash to a Homeless Man . . . So He Kissed Her and Asked Her Out

PARIS HILTON gave money to a homeless man after leaving a restaurant recently . . . and he responded by HITTING ON HER. Fortunately, the paparazzi caught it all on video.

The guy gave her a kiss on the cheek after accepting her cash, and then started showering her with praise. He said, quote, "Paris cares for the homeless . . . she's beautiful, but she's not stuck-up."

Then, he made his move . . . quote, "[Would] you ever date a homeless guy? I love you, Paris."

She didn't say no. She just laughed, and said, quote, "Happy birthday, honey!" We're assuming the birthday thing was part of his initial pitch for the money . . . but you can't hear that in the video.

For the record, the guy was older . . . and was clearly just playing around.

Maroon 5 Has Their Second #1 Album

MAROON 5's fifth studio album, "V", has debuted on top of the Billboard 200 with 164,000 copies. It's the band's second #1 album . . . they topped the chart once before in 2007 when they sold 429,000 copies of "It Won't Be Soon Before Long".

Rapper JEEZY debuted in the runner-up slot this week with 121,000 copies of "Seen It All: The Autobiography".

BOB MARLEY earned his highest chart position ever with his 1984 greatest hits album "Legend" selling 41,000 copies and jumping all the way to #5, thanks to a special 99-cent sale on Google Play last week.

And Counting Crows earned their sixth Top 10 album with "Somewhere Under Wonderland" moving 32,000 copies at #6. Here are this week's Top 5 albums . . .

1. NEW: "V", Maroon 5 . . . 164,000 copies

Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka are Married!

NEIL PATRICK HARRIS and his longtime partner DAVID BURTKA got married Saturday in Italy. Neil is 41, David is 39. They've been together more than 10 years, and have twins named Gideon and Harper, who'll be 4 next month.

Neil's rep said, quote, "We happily confirm that Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka were married in Italy in an intimate ceremony surrounded by their close friends and family."

And Neil Tweeted a picture, along with the caption, quote, "Guess what? David and I got married over the weekend. In Italy. Yup, we put the 'n' and 'd' in 'husband'.

They both wore black tuxedos and ELTON JOHN played at the reception. KELLY RIPA was among the guests, and yesterday on"Live! With Kelly and Michael", she said it was, quote, "very quiet" and "very private."

She also said there were fireworks and MAGIC TRICKS . . . because Neil is, quote, "way into magic."

They also took a page out of the Brad and Angelina handbook, by letting Gideon make his own choice about his role in the ceremony. Neil and David had wanted him to be ring bearer, but he had his own idea.

He told them he wanted to be the ORANGE BOY . . . so they let him PASS OUT ORANGES as he walked down the aisle. Harper was the flower girl.

Taylor Swift Hasn't Dated Since Harry Styles . . . And She's Not Having Sex Either

TAYLOR SWIFT's career may be humming, but she's going through a dry spell in the bedroom. Possibly a year-and-half-long dry spell.

In the new issue of "Rolling Stone", Taylor says she hasn't been on a single date since she broke up with HARRY STYLES early last year. She adds, quote, "People are going to feel sorry for me when you write that. But it's true."

There are two very good reasons she won't date. First, she says, quote, "Seventy percent of the time, when a guy asks me out, it'll just be a random e-mail."

And secondly, quote, "I feel like watching my dating life has become a bit of a national pastime. And I'm just not comfortable providing that kind of entertainment anymore."

So is Taylor just getting random action? Nope. She doesn't hook up. She says, quote, "I just think it's pointless if you're not in love, and I don't have the energy to be in love right now. So no."

Meanwhile, Taylor also revealed she's in a feud with another female singer. She won't say who, but she's the subject of a song on Taylor's upcoming album called "Bad Blood".

She says, quote, "For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'"

But then it all became clear . . . quote, "She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. I was like, 'Oh, we're just straight-up enemies.'"

Billboard.com has offered four guesses as to who Taylor's enemy could be. They're thinking Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, or Selena Gomez.

Denzel Washington and his Wife Were Once Mistaken for a Pimp and His Hooker

DENZEL WASHINGTON shot his latest movie "The Equalizer" in Boston, but before that, he didn't have the fondest memories of the city.

Thirty years ago he and his wife Pauletta were in Boston because she was doing a play there. And someone in a hotel mistook them for A HOOKER AND HER PIMP and called security. A fight ensued.

Denzel says, quote, "I didn't know how to fight, but I knew how to win."

Another night he was walking to her show, and someone called out to him, quote, "Hey [N-word], [N-word], [N-word], [N-word]. Hey boy." Denzel says, quote, "I was like, 'Damn.' That was the taste I had about Boston."

Jenny McCarthy & Donnie Wahlberg Are Adding to Drew Carey's Reward to Find the Mean Kids Behind the Ice Bucket Prank

DREW CAREY isn't the only one fired up about a horrible ALS Ice Bucket Challenge prank.

Newlyweds Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg are also stepping up to help find the high school students responsible for harming a 14-year-old boy with autism through the viral movement.

Jenny tweeted "I'm joining Drew Carey's 10K Reward to Find Perpetrators Behind Horrible ALS Bucket Prank. Now it's 20k!" Jenny has a son, Evan, who was diagnosed with autism in 2005.

Husband Donnie is backing his wife on this. He tweeted, "If this 's---ty' prank was real…Then I am joining @JennyMcCarthy and @DrewFromTV and offering another $10K to the reward," he tweeted. "That makes 30K!"

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Got Married But Her Dad Wasn’t There


BRAD PITT and ANGELINA JOLIE pulled a fast one on the media and pretty much EVERYONE by getting married last Saturday in France.  Their rep made the announcement yesterday.



It's amazing that they were able to keep it under wraps . . . especially considering how obsessed the media is with their status . . . so now everyone is playing catch-up.  Here's what we know:



It happened at an estate Brad and Angelina own in Correns, France, which is probably the main reason they were able to keep it so secret.  And it was a short "nondenominational civil ceremony conducted by a California judge."



There were only about 22 friends and family members there . . . although Angelina's father JON VOIGHT was NOT there.  He gets to see the kids from time to time, but he's been trying to be a bigger part of Angelina's life.  Clearly that's not working out.



He only found out yesterday after the news hit the Internet.  He said, "It seems like it was very nice . . . and with all of the kids involved, it must have been a lot of fun and very beautiful.  I'm happy for them."



He told a British tabloid that he's on his way to Europe to spend time with Angelina, Brad and the kids.  As for missing the wedding, he chalked it up to a timing issue, since he had to be in the States for Monday's "Emmys".



Brad and Angelina read handwritten vows, and all six of their kids were involved in the ceremony.  Angelina walked down the aisle with  Maddox and Pax,  Zahara  and Vivienne threw flower petals, and Shiloh and Knox were the ring bearers.



Angelina wore a plain white floor-length antique lace and silk wedding dress with a veil . . . Brad wore a cream linen suit . . . the boys wore matching cream suits . . . and apparently the girls each had a dress made to match their individual style.



Brad and Angelina got engaged in 2012.  This is Brad's second marriage, obviously.  He married Jennifer Aniston in 2000, then dumped her in 2005 for Angelina.



This is Angelina's THIRD marriage.  She was married to Jonny Lee Miller from "Elementary" from 1996 to 1999 . . . and then to Billy Bob Thornton from 2000 to 2003.  So this is her first marriage to someone who only goes by two names.  



It doesn't sound like they'll enjoy much of a honeymoon . . . apparently they've gone right to work on "By the Sea", the movie they're doing together in Malta.




Britney Spears is Single Again . . . Did She Catch Her Boyfriend Cheating? 



BRITNEY SPEARS and her boyfriend David Lucado have broken up after a year and a half together.  Last night, Britney Tweeted, quote, "Ahhhh the single life!"



Sources say Britney dumped David after a video surfaced showing him dancing and making out with another woman in somebody's living room.  It was reportedly shot earlier this month.



David actually has a rep for some reason, and when he was contacted, he said, quote, "David is very, very in love with Britney.  This is unfortunate and he hopes that it all works out."



As for Britney, a source says, quote, "She is heartbroken.  But she will get through it.  She's a strong girl and he was never right for her."




Joan Rivers is in Critical Condition After She Stopped Breathing During Surgery on Her Vocal Cords


JOAN RIVERS is in critical but stable condition at a New York City hospital after she stopped breathing during surgery on her vocal cords, and went into cardiac arrest.



It happened at an outpatient clinic while doctors were putting a scope down her throat.  She was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital.



She was sedated at the time, and it's not clear what drugs were used.  Now she's been placed in a medically-induced coma, and they're going to take her out of it this weekend to assess the damage.



Her daughter MELISSA issued a statement saying, quote, "I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother.  She is resting comfortably and is with our family.  We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers."



Joan had just performed in New York the night before, and witnesses say she didn't show signs of any health problems . . . although she did joke about her age.



She said, quote, "I'm 81 . . . I could go at any moment.  I could fall over right here and you all could say, 'I was there!'"




Blake Lively Got Attacked by Bees the Day Before Her Birthday


BLAKE LIVELY turned 27 on Monday, and she celebrated by nursing MULTIPLE BEE STINGS.  Blake got SWARMED during a photo shoot on Sunday, and wrote about it on her website.



She said, quote, "I felt an electric shock of energy . . . was it excitement that I was about to turn another year older?  Was it nerves?  Why did it feel like agony?  [My butt] hurt like hell . . . then my neck, back, legs and forehead.



"And oh my hands!  They were shriveling.  It felt like I was being shot by dozens of tiny invisible darts.  I felt like the Wicked Witch, melting, melting, burning, melting."



"Now, I was a Monty Python sketch;  running at top speed in no particular direction, whipping my arms and hands around like I'd just discovered they were growing out of my shoulders without my previous knowledge . . .



"I was shaken.  I was swollen.  I had to stop what I was doing to recuperate and / or shrink."




New Movies: Pierce Brosnan's Spy Thriller "The November Man" is Up Against the Horror Flick "As Above So Below"


1.  "The November Man"  (R)  Trailer  (Opened Wednesday)



Pierce Brosnan plays a former spy who's lured out of retirement for a mission to protect Olga Kurylenko from a CIA hit squad.  That makes him the target of Australian actor Luke Bracey, a friend Brosnan trained before he left the agency.



Luke is the guy who got Keanu's role of Johnny Utah in the upcoming "Point Break" remake.  And Olga is a former Bond girl.  But not one of Brosnan's Bond girls . . . she was in the Daniel Craig movie "Quantum of Solace".




2.  "As Above So Below"  (R) 



A found-footage horror movie about a team of explorers who enter the catacombs under Paris on a quest for the Philosopher's Stone . . . but instead find the Gates of Hell, where each of them is forced to relive the sins of their past.



Perdita Weeks from "The Tudors" is the archeology student leading the expedition. Ben Feldman from "Drop Dead Diva" is her partner, and Edwin Hodge from "The Purge" is their cameraman.  You may also know Ben Feldman as Michael Ginsberg on "Mad Men".

Mathew Knowles Says the Beyonce / Jay Z Divorce Rumors Were a "Jedi Mind Trick" to Drum Up Interest in Their Tour


Divorce rumors have been dogging BEYONCÉ and JAY Z for months now . . . but maybe that's EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANTED.



In a radio interview yesterday, Beyoncé's dad MATHEW KNOWLES said they CREATED those rumors to drum up interest in their tour.  And even Jay's elevator fight with SOLANGE was faked.



He said, quote, "I know [it was fake], because we've done this.  From experience, there's a tour going on.  So you sometimes have to ignite that tour.  It's called a Jedi mind trick.  The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot."



"Everyone's talking about it.  Ticket sales went up.  Solange's album sales went up 200%."



Do Queen Latifah and Her Girlfriend Want Lenny Kravitz to Father Their Child?


QUEEN LATIFAH and her girlfriend Eboni want to have a baby, and they have reportedly picked out a pretty cool dude to father the child.



"In Touch" magazine claims they want LENNY KRAVITZ to impregnate either a surrogate or Eboni herself.



A source says, quote, "Queen Latifah simply loves Lenny.  Not only is he handsome, but she likes his inner peace and what he stands for as a man."


Lenny hasn’t confirmed whether or not he’s interested.




Jennifer Aniston is Tired of Being Hounded About Having Kids


JENNIFER ANISTON might want to have kids someday but she definitely wants people to stop HOUNDING HER ABOUT IT.


Jen tells NBC that people pressure her to become a mother. "It's always such an issue of, 'Are you married yet? Do you have your babies yet?' It's constant. I don't know. I don't have this checklist of things that have to be done and if they're not checked I've failed some part of my feminism or being a woman or my value as a woman because I haven't birthed a child. I've birthed a lot of things and I feel I've mothered many things. I don't think it's fair to put that pressure on people."


So there. Leave Jen alone.




A “Friends” Inspired Coffee Shop is Opening Up…Finally


If you were a fan of the show “Friends” then you’re probably wondering why this didn’t happen like 10 years sooner…

The New York coffee house will feature actual furniture from the show, including the orange sofa. A Central Perk blend will also be offered between September 17th and October 18th.

Miley Cyrus Had a Homeless Guy Accept Her "VMA" Award Because of the Backlash She Got Last Year


MILEY CYRUS had a young homeless dude named Jesse accept her Video of the Year award at the "MTV Video Music Awards" on Sunday . . . at least partially because of the backlash she got after her performance with ROBIN THICKE at last year's show.



In a radio interview yesterday, Miley said, quote, "I just didn't realize my platform, I didn't realize my power.  I really realized it after the'VMAs' [last year] . . . no matter what I do, there's no winning or losing, it's just going to be talked about.



"So what do I want them to talk about? . . . Because I don't think what I was trying to say is what happened the year before.  The reason it was so important at the 'VMAs' is because it’s for young people.



"Jesse is my same age and that's what this show is for.  I think people need to see this . . . at least, I know I did after last year . . . to remember what matters."




Emmy Highlights and Memorable Moments


"Breaking Bad" went out in style last night, capturing six Emmys for its final season . . . but that wasn't enough to go out with the MOST Emmys of the night.  That honor went to"Sherlock".  I was surprised and super excited about this. I thought that it was just me, my husband and few other friends who we demanded watch this show that even knew about it! 


"Sherlock:  His Last Vow", snagged seven Emmys, including Best Actor in a Miniseries or Movie for BENEDICT CUMBERBATCHMARTIN FREEMAN, also snagged the Emmy for Best Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie and Steven Moffat, for Best Writing for a Miniseries, Movie, or a Dramatic Special. The show also won a bunch of Creative Emmy awards that weren't announced on the show last night.


"Modern Family" won Outstanding Comedy Series for the fifth straight year, and TY BURRELL won for Supporting Actor in a Comedy for the second time since 2011.


JIM PARSONS won his fourth Emmy for Lead Actor in a Comedy for "The Big Bang Theory" . . . while JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS won the female equivalent for "Veep".


And JULIANNA MARGULIES won Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama for "The Good Wife".  She also won it in 2010.


GWEN STEFANI announced a win for "The Colbert Report" as the Best Variety, Music, or Comedy Series.  But she mispronounced it "The Col-BOAR Report".  But it was nowhere near as bad as John Travolta's "Adele Dazeem" Oscar moment.

Jennifer Lopez Got Skittles from Casper Smart at the "VMAs"


JENNIFER LOPEZ and CASPER SMART both attended the "VMAs" Sunday night, but the official word is they weren't together.  Casper was supposedly there to support NICKI MINAJ, because he did some choreography for her. 


But Casper WAS seated right in front of J-Lo, and at one point he even turned around to pour some SKITTLES into her hand. Sharing Skittles is a pretty big deal. That might point to a reconcilation. 




The Highest-Paid Male TV Actors


"Forbes" has put together their annual list of "The Highest-Paid Male TV Actors" . . . and for the THIRD year in a row, "Two and a Half Men" star ASHTON KUTCHER is #1.  He's raking in $26 million over the past year.



His co-star JON CRYER is second with $19 million . . . along with "NCIS" star MARK HARMON who made the same amount.  Interestingly enough, nine of the Top 15 actors are or were on CBS shows.



Here's the complete Top 15:



1.  Ashton Kutcher"Two and a Half Men", $26 million


2.  A tie between Jon Cryer of "Two and a Half Men" and Mark Harmon of "NCIS", with $19 million each.


4.  Neil Patrick Harris"How I Met Your Mother", $18 million


5.  A tie between Patrick Dempsey of "Grey's Anatomy" and Kevin Spacey of Netflix's "House of Cards", with $16 million each.


7.  Tim Allen"Last Man Standing", $15 million


8.  Simon Baker"The Mentalist", $13 million


9.  Jim Parsons"The Big Bang Theory", $12 million


10.  A tie between Jason Segel from "How I Met Your Mother" and Johnny Galecki of "The Big Bang Theory", with $11 million each.


12.  A THREE-WAY tie between Jon Hamm of "Mad Men"Charlie Sheen of "Anger Management", and Josh Radnor of "How I Met Your Mother", with $10 million apiece.


15.  Bryan Cranston"Breaking Bad", $8 million



The numbers were taken from June of last year up through this past June . . . so the big salary bumps for the "Big Bang Theory" stars were NOT included, which is why they're kind of low on the list.  Next year will be a different story.



As usual, not ALL of this money came from the actors' TV salaries.  It includes movie roles and endorsement deals as well.  So, Tim Allen's Vegas stand-up money is also a part of his overall take.
