Your celebrity gossip roundup
• Don Imus and CBS reached a settlement over the DJ’s dustbinned contract, confirming to the AP only that an agreement had been reached and neither side could speak disparagingly about the other. However much he got, it should be enough to tide him over until he gets a planned gig at WABC-AM off the ground.
• A court commissioner tells the AP that he is considering a request by KNBC-TV and People magazine to unseal documents revealing details of the Britney Spears-Kevin Federline divorce, setting a hearing date of Sept. 14. That guy must read the gossip rags, too.
• Actor Ving Rhames finally released a public statement about the death initially attributed to his dogs earlier this month. “I was out of the country when this shocking and terrible tragedy occurred on my property,” Rhames said. “Jacob Adams was not just a devoted employee—he was also a dear friend. I want to offer my heartfelt condolences to his family.” Excuse us if we don’t play fetch just yet.
