A Paris homeless man has reportedly rejected French first lady Carla Bruni‘s attempt to get him off the streets. Denis, 53, says Carla has befriended him and has been taking quite good care of him, even buying him a “military-type duvet.”
“She asks after me, she gives me one or two fifty or 100 euro notes,” he says. When Carla offered to put him up in a local hotel, however, Denis refused. “It’s not that I enjoy being in the street but I’ve got my habits,” he says. “People say it’s cold. That’s true, but I’m well covered up.”
Carla mentioned Denis in an interview for Macadam, a magazine sold by the homeless. Then he was interviewed by Closer magazine. Do we smell a reality show next? Even if offered, Denis would probably refuse, as he seems content with his street life – with a little help from the former model of course. [Source: BBC;Photo: Splash News Online]

Tom Cruise – a spy? No, it’s not the plot of Mission Impossible #1997301 - Suri‘s dad is being sued by magazine editor Michael Davis Sapir, who claims Tom hired a private investigator to illegally wiretap his phone. Michael is accusing Tom, attorney Bert Fields, and jailed private investigator Anthony Pellicano of conspiring to spy on him.
This is not the first time Tom and Michael have been at odds. In 2001, Tom sued Michael for $100 million after Michael claimed to have a video of the A-List actor engaging in homosexual activities. That lawsuit was settled later that year. Now Michael is suing for $5 million, and Tom’s team is vehemently denying his claims. “The allegations are absolute garbage. We did not even hire Pellicano to work on the Sapir case,” Bert says.
Besides, who needs a P.I. when you have Suri Cruise? She is always sneaking into things, and although she smiles through her cupcake frosting, that little Scientolotot is probably really the one behind this whole operation. When her parents weren’t looking, Suri snuck out to the spy shop and picked up a couple wireless spy cameras and listening devices and set up a little private investigation office in the basement. Tom and Katie have no idea – they haven’t been down there in years. [Source: TMZ, Photo: Getty Images]
