We can always count on Justin Bieber when Celebrityland is giving us the ZZZs.
The Canadian pop star has been charged with dangerous driving and assault following an accident involving a minivan and an ATV that led to fisticuffs with a photographer, his lawyer told the Associated Press on Tuesday. Sounds like somebody has a case of the Tough Guys.
Ontario police said Bieber, who was driving the ATV, and a passenger in the minivan “engaged in a physical altercation” Friday afternoon near The Maple One’s hometown.
“Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s peaceful retreat in Stratford this weekend was unfortunately disrupted by the unwelcome presence of the paparazzi,” Brian Greenspan, Bieber’s Toronto lawyer — not to be confused with his Miami or L.A. lawyers — said Tuesday. “This has regrettably resulted in charges of dangerous driving and assault.”
Just a few days before the ATV incident, Bieber’s car was rear-ended by a paparazzo in Hollywood.
“There should be laws against what I just experienced,” the 20-year-old tweeted afterward. “We should have learned from the death of Princess Diana…” …Full Story
Wondering what Angelina Jolie wore when she married Brad Pitt at their Château Miraval wedding last week?
On Monday, People and Hello magazines unveiled a peek at their upcoming Joliecentric covers, which feature the bride and her astonishingly drab-from-the-front Donatella Versace gown. The couple’s brood took care of the blah factor all over the back, though, as master tailor Luigi Massi sewed dozens of the Jolie-Pitt kids’ scribbles onto the silk train and veil.
“Luigi is like family to me and I couldn’t imagine anyone else making this dress,” Jolie told People. “He knows and cares for the children and it was great fun putting it together.”Full Story
Carrie Underwood might want to retire that new motorcycle for a few months. The country singer and her hockey star husband Mike Fisher are expecting their first child.
The 31-year-old American Idol alum tweeted the news with a little help from her dogs.
“In honor of 'Labor’ Day...Ace & Penny would like to make an announcement. Their parents couldn’t be happier!” she wrote. With the post: a photo of her pups wearing shirts that say they’re going to be big brother and big sister.
(Side note — we sure hope the Mama’s Song singer doesn’t think dogs are anything like human babies, because that’s major pet peeve territory she’d be entering.)
“We haven’t picked names yet but it’s looking like Fly is gonna fly. #boyorgirl #flyfisher,” tweeted Fisher, 34, because the world obviously needs one more weird celebrity baby name.
Underwood is due in the spring.Full Story
Newlyweds on the Block!
Donnie Wahlberg’s Favorite Girl is now his only girl after he Singled Out and locked down Jenny McCarthy in a Chicago-area wedding ceremony on Sunday.
The couple said their I do’s at Hotel Baker in St. Charles, Ill., ABC News reports. The Blue Bloods actor, who still tours with New Kids on the Block, proposed to the former View co-host in April with a 10-carat yellow sapphire ring and the help of her son Evan.
“Of course, I said, 'Yes,’” McCarthy said of the proposal a few days later on the daytime talk show that couldn’t wait to get rid of her.
We don’t have many deets about the wedding, but what we can tell you is that McCarthy was basically sent from heaven to grace our eyeballs with her red lips, blonde, Hollywood-glamour hair and bombshell figure that poured out of a plunging sweetheart neckline, nearly mimicking that famous Jayne Mansfield almost-wardrobe-malfunction moment that fortunately was captured in time.
Check out the look in the video above.
This is the second marriage for both Wahlberg, 45, and McCarthy, 41.Full Story
Ashlee and Evan at their extremely fluffy engagement party.
Just two months after sister Jessica Simpson married former NFL star Eric Johnson, Ashlee Simpson also took the plunge, exchanging vows with fiancee Evan Ross at his mother’s Connecticut estate.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay actor’s mom would be none other than megastar Diana Ross, by the way. #nobigdeal.
According to People, the Supremes singer not only planned the wedding but also performed Endless Love at the event, because diva!
Former pop star Simpson walked down the aisle with 5-year-old son Bronx, and her Weight Watchers spokeswoman sister and matron of honor lent daughter Maxwell, 2, and son Ace, 14 months, to serve as flower girl and ring bearer.
The rained-on affair had a mix-and-match Bohemian theme, complete with dream catchers, so we naturally assume it also reeked of nag champa. The second-time bride wore a pearl-embellished long-sleeved gown and a mere $750,000-worth of Neil Lane diamonds and rubies to complement her engagement ring, also designed by the jeweler. For his Dolce and Gabbana tux, the groom stuck with his favorite fabric: velvet, with a white silk trim.
Simpson was previously married to Bronx’s father, Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy.Full Story
Well, this is pretty much the worst. Unless you’re a creep, in which case this is good news for you.
It seems hackers have managed to get their hands on and redistribute what appear to be nude and partially nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Victoria Justice, Ariana Grande, Kirsten Dunst, Hope Solo, Krysten Ritter, Yvonne Strahovski, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Teresa Palmer.
According to TMZ, some of the photos of Lawrence appear to be taken in a dressing room while others are “more intimate.” Some show the star in bathing suits while others are fully nude.
“This is a flagrant violation of privacy,” Lawrence’s people tell the gossip site. “The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”
Yikes, sounds like these pictures might actually be legit.
For her part, Victoria Justice is denying that the photos are real, tweeting, “These so called nudes of me are FAKE people. Let me nip this in the bud right now. *pun intended*” …Full Story
Actress Gabrielle Union married longtime partner and Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade at sunset on Saturday, E! News reports.
The private couple wed in the Miami area at the Chateau Artisan estate, which looks like a huge castle surrounded by a moat so as to keep out journalists and other riff raff.
For her big day, the bride chose a strapless Dennis Basso ballgown with a sweetheart neckline, the groom a Dsquared2 Tuxedo, whatever that is.
“Secretly this is his princess moment,” Union told Ellen Degeneres of her hubby’s wedding planning. “He has waited for this for a long time. He’s been hoarding bridal magazines. He’s very ready… Every aspect — aspects I didn’t even know went into wedding planning — he is on. To have a centerpiece or not have a centerpiece? He has very strong opinions. No centerpieces. Who cares? He does!”
The couple forbid anyone from bringing cellphones so they could control — and perhaps cash in on — the release of their wedding photos. …Full Story
Joan Rivers remained in a medically-induced coma three days after she went into cardiac arrest, but her family said Sunday they remain hopeful about her recovery.
“Thank you for your continued love and support,” Melissa Rivers said in a statement. “We are keeping our fingers crossed.”
Melissa described her 81-year-old mother’s condition as serious, and TMZ reported that the Fashion Police host was on life support.
“The waking-up process has begun and will take until Tuesday,” an insider told the New York Daily News. “There is real concern that the part of the brain that controls motor skills may have been compromised leaving her as either a vegetable or in a wheelchair.”
Rivers’ Fashion Police co-stars have taken to Twitter to show their support.
“Praying for Joan Rivers and Mel Rivers,” Giuliana Rancic tweeted. “Even though Joan’s the strongest woman I know, every single prayer counts. I love you, Joan.”
“4 the first time in years I got down on my knees & prayed tonight!” Kelly Osbourne wrote. “I encourage U 2 do the same 4 Joan Rivers my grandma!” …Full Story
Joan Rivers was resting comfortably Thursday night after being rushed to Manhattan’s Mt. Sinai Hospital, reportedly after suffering cardiac or resperatory arrest during an outpatient surgery at a nearby doctor’s office.
“I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother,” daughter Melissa Rivers said in statement. “She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.”
Melissa had flown from Los Angeles to New York to be by her mother’s side, said a spokesperson for E!, which airs Fashion Police.
Emergency medical services personnel brought the veteran stand-up comic and Fashion Police star to the hospital from “a doctor’s office on 93rd Street,” a building that houses an endoscopy clinic, NYPD Det. Kellyann Ort told the Los Angeles Times.
The 81-year-old had reportedly been undergoing throat surgery, possibly on her vocal cords, when a 911 call was placed describing a person who was either in cardiac or respiratory arrest, said TMZ, which first had the news.
According to E! News, the comic had stopped breathing during surgery and was in critical condition when authorities arrived. …Full Story
The wedding we’ve all been waiting for — mostly by saying, ugh, is this never going to happen — has happened!
Brad Pitt, 50, and Angelina Jolie, 39, got married Saturday in France in a private ceremony, a spokesman told the Associated Press.
We’re not surprised that they tried to keep it secret, especially given that Pitt made a point some years back that they wouldn’t get married until gay marriage was legal, but we are surprised that they somehow managed to keep it hidden for five days.
The couple didn’t seem to have much of a honeymoon, either. Also not surprising, given that they have six kids. Pitt was back to work Thursday for his new movie Fury, a World War II drama out Oct. 17, and was spotted at an England event for it with a new ring on his finger.
But enough about that. What you really want to know is the details of the wedding, right?
The “nondenominational civil ceremony” took place Saturday in a small chapel at Provence’s Chateau Miraval, a vineyard estate owned by the Jolie-Pitts. …Full Story
Baby numero dos is on its way for Shakira and soccer star Gerard Piqué.
The singer tells Spanish Cosmopolitan, “Pues sí, la verdad es que sí, estoy embarazada.”
Translation: Yep, I’m pregnant.
Baby rumors started way back when Shakira, 37, performed at the World Cup, for her outfit was less revealing than usual and her gyrations subpar.
According to Us Weekly, the singer jinxed herself in April, saying she was way too busy with work to have another kid.
“If it weren’t because of my music projects, I would be pregnant already,” she told Latina. “I would love to have eight or nine kids with Gerard — my own fútbol team.”
Shakira and the 27-year-old Spanish soccer player welcomed son Milan in January 2013. So, are these two ever going to walk down the aisle, as is custom after reproducing together?
“We already have what’s essential, you know? We have a union, a love for each other, and a baby,” Shakira said in Glam Belleza Latina’s summer issue. “I think that those aspects of our relationship are already established, and marriage is not going to change them. But if I’m ever going to get married, he’s the one.”Full Story
It’s only been what, like seven years since Tony Soprano was whacked or maybe not whacked on the series finale of The Sopranos? And all this time we’ve been wondering what really happened when the screen went blank and credits rolled.
So, do you want to know? Do you really want to know?
Okay, spoiler alertathon:
Show creator David Chase finally gave up on all that matters to him and answered the question that everyone under the sun has been nagging him about for the better part of a decade. Without further ado, the reveal we’ve all been waiting for, excerpted from a super-long piece on Vox:
“We were in a tiny coffee shop, when, in the middle of a low-key chat about a writing problem I was having, I popped the question. Chase startled me by turning toward me and saying with sudden, explosive anger, 'Why are we talking about this?’ I answered, 'I’m just curious.’ And then, for whatever reason, he told me… He shook his head 'no.’ And he said simply, 'No he isn’t.’ That was all.”
Not dead. Happy now? All it took was badgering this poor man incessently for 2,600 days until he randomly lost it. …Full Story
It’s a classic tale of romance: Woman falls in love, gives birth to an unplanned child and then a year later maybe gets engaged.
Just ask Heather Morris how well it all worked out. The Glee star has been flashing the rock longtime boyfriend Taylor Hubbell recently gave her, 11 months after their son Elijah was born.
“They’re super happy together and it just made sense,” an insider tells Us Weekly. “Heather was beaming when spotted wearing her engagement ring.”
When Us reported that the multihyphenate welcomed her first child last September, she told the mag how much her life has changed: “I never get to go out!” she said. Or meet anyone new!Full Story
Heeeere haters, haters, haters.
Lolo Jones, the Olympic hurdler and bobsledder everyone loves to hate, is reportedly joining Dancing With the Stars for its 19th season, which kicks off on Sept. 15.
ABC doesn’t comment on casting rumors, since they want to pimp out contestants on Good Morning America every year, but a blabbermouth tells E! News that Jones will be joined by Pretty Little Liars star Janel Parrish and former General Hospital hunk and Calvin Klein model Antonio Sabato Jr.
This will be the first cast to compete for the mirrorball trophy under the disapproving gaze of Julianne Hough, who apparently decided movies are just too hard. The former pro will be the fourth judge on the panel this year.
“I am warming up the paddles and the sass, and I’m ready to have fun in this new role,” Hough said.
While we don’t know the full lineup of “stars” who will be dancing, we do know that fan-favorite pros Derek Hough, Mark Ballas, Cheryl Burke, Val Chmerkovskiy, Karina Smirnoff and Tony Dovolani will be returning.Full Story
If you’re wondering how Brad Paisley and his record label are doing lately, let’s just say they’re proving to be one of the best tabloid relationships of all time.
As we chronicled recently, Paisley and Sony Music Nashville have been trading barbs since the guitarist extraordinaire started leaking album Moonshine in the Trunk (officially released Wednesday) via Twitter in July, sans management approval. The label team sent angry and pleading emails and texts aplenty to Paisley to no avail, eventually sticking the country star with the check at a group dinner in retaliation.
When Paisley turned down the team’s attempts to capitalize on the leaking, they turned to a bit of leaking of their own. Label CEO Gary Overton gave out Paisley’s personal email address (email@example.com, in case you were wondering) on Friday to country radio shows, who then entreated listeners to email him.
Of course, they did.
“I have 18,000,” Paisley told a Houston radio station, noting that he was being a good sport and replying. …Full Story
