Lindsay Lohan Actually Was Telling The Truth About That Plane Ticket

SPL176660_001

TMZ discovered that Lindsay Lohan was actually not lying (Sorry Michael Lohan!) when she said she had a plane ticket from the South of France to L.A. She had to get home in time for last Thursday’s court hearing, and the trouble started because of that darn volcano ash, followed by Lindsay’s passport being stolen.

They’ve got their hands on an invoice from Executive Travel and Parking which is the travel agency Lindsay used to book the flight.  It reads that Lindsay bought a $6,860.50 ticket (wow) on Swiss International Air Lines, leaving Nice on Wednesday, May 19 at 10:40 AM, stopping in Zurich and reaching L.A. at 4:40 PM the same day. The D.A apparently didn’t believes LiLo when she said she had a ticket before her passport was nicked. Well, there’s the proof!

Nicole Scherzinger Wins Dancing With The Stars

dwts-finalists

The 32-year-old Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger and her partner Derek Hough picked up the mirror ball trophy for the show’s 10th season. They’ve been the front-runners for a while now, and ended up scoring 115 points out of a total 120 from the judges. Scherzinger was over the moon after winning super reviews for their “Proud Mary” number. “I’m just so grateful! I’m just so flipping happy right now,” she said. “It’s such an awesome experience!”

Her competition, Evan Lysacek, nailed 108 points with his partner Anna Trebunskaya before viewer votes were tallied. He graciously told Tom Bergeron, “We’re so proud of Nicole and Derek!” Erin Andrews, the season’s third-place finisher, said: “This experience has meant everything to me. I have gone through hell the past year.”  Of course, Erin’s referring to the crazy business with the stalker and receiving death threats earlier this year. Of her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, she said: “He brought me back to life. He just did!” Chmerkovskiy very recently got pulled over by a police officer while zipping down  La Cienega. After a little smooth talking, the cop let him off without giving him a ticket. Why?  “Apparently, he’s a fan,” quipped Chmerkovskiy.

Kim Kardashian Tried Botox

SPL182785_023

Kourtney Kardashian admitted to a boob job recently, telling “Nightline” co-anchor Cynthia McFadden, “I have had breast implants, but it’s so funny cause it’s not a secret, I could care less.” Her sister Kim Kardashian confronted her plastic surgery rumors stating, “I’m totally not against plastic surgery. I’ve tried Botox before. That’s the only thing that I’ve done.”

So Botox, check. Anything else? No, she clarified, saying, “I’ve never had my nose done.” Her Mom Kris Jenner added, “None of us have had our nose done.” Kim went on to admit, “What’s funny about my nose, it’s my biggest insecurity. I always want to get my nose done . . . I went to the doctor, I had them take the pictures, he showed me what it would look like and it just didn’t — I wouldn’t look the same.”

Of course talk had to go towards her well-admired cleavage. Kim joked, “Trust me honey, if I take this bra off you will tell me I need to get them done.” If you say so.

CoCo Sells House Before Moving To L.A, Makes Big Money

SPL166346_003

CoCo’s made a killing! Now that he’s moved back to L.A for his new TBS gig, Conan O’Brien recently put his NYC pad on the market. The two-floor penthouse on Central Park West has sold for the incredible amount of $29.5 million! The apartment is in the famous Majestic building and was open for sale in February. CoCo’s crazy deal is the second biggest residential sale in Manhattan this year. Laugh all the way to an L.A bank, Conan!

Conan’s new TBS gig came as a complete surprise because of speculation that Conan would be heading to Fox this fall. Instead he Conan chose to take his talk show to basic cable, tweeting, “The good news: I will be doing a show on TBS starting in November! The bad news: I’ll be playing Rudy on the all new Cosby Show.” He added in a minutely more official statement, “In three months I’ve gone from network television to Twitter to performing live in theaters, and now I’m headed to basic cable. My plan is working perfectly.” Making millions sounds like a super plan to us.

Rihanna And Trainer Battle It Out In Court

SPL182269_005

There’s court drama happening and for once it’s not about Lindsay Lohan! This particular bout is going down between Rihanna and her former trainer, Cindy Percival. The nasty legal battle between them started when Percival sued Rihanna last year for supposedly locking her out of $26,144 in unpaid fees and travel expenses which she shelled out to meet the singer all over Europe.

Now, Rihanna has filed a countersuit in L.A. County Superior Court against Percival. She’s claiming the story is full of BS, and that Percival’s the one who stiffed Rihanna out of $26,244.63. Apparently, the trainer was given an advance of $24k for her services, but the money was never returned after she was fired last year. This one’s getting personal!

Have Serena Williams And Common Split?

SPL170335_003

Game, set… but the match is apparently off. There’s news of a split between tennis player Serena Williams and rapper/actor Common, according to In Touch magazine. Apparently the two “just grew apart” after two years of seeing each other. They came together for the premiere of the rom-com “Date Night” in April. But come May, and Common was minus Serena for the premiere of his new film “Just Wright”, bringing his mother instead. No comments yet from Williams’ or Common’s camps. Hey, maybe Venus Williams’ lingerie-esque outfits at The French Open reminded Common that she and Serena have got the same genes.

SPL176920_005

Jemi is no more! Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato have confirmed that they broke up on Monday after a just a few months of dating. And unlike with his ex, Taylor Swift, this split didn’t happen on the phone. Lovato tweeted, “There are so many crazy rumors flying around today.  Joe and I did split, but it wasn’t over the phone.. Things didn’t work out but we’ll remain friends.” Lovato also slammed rumors that she’s already seeing someone post-break-up saying,  “I am NOT dating anybody already.” Followed by the ubiquitous, “Nothing is more important to me than the relationship I have with my fans.”

But why Jemi, why? You were so adorable together? Joe clarified, “Demi and I knew going into our romantic relationship that it may not be an easy one. I realize over the time we have shared together that I feel I care more about our friendship right now. It was my choice to breakup, but I love her as a friend. She’s been there for me when I needed her. I will continue to be her friend and be there for her.” Ah. Young Love. So fickle, yet so sweet. And the whole friendship thing better work out, because they’re touring together this summer!

But… and there’s always a but… the split might not be set in stone. A source let on, “She’s a strong girl. They are so young…I wouldn’t count them out yet.”

Slipknot Bassist, Paul Grey, Is Dead

SPL57426_009

38-year-old Paul Gray, the bassist for metal band Slipknot, was found dead at an Iowa hotel on Monday. The Urbandale Police department report that a hotel employee discovered the body early morning. No foul play has been found just yet but an autopsy is scheduled today.

Slipknot members hardly ever stepped out without their trademark masks, and Grey often went by the names “#2″ and “The Pig.” He was arrested once  in 2003 on suspicion of cocaine and marijuana. The Grammy winning band has a hugely following, and he will be sorely missed by family, friends and fans.

So sad!

Friends Worry That Heidi Montag Is Suicidal

SPL165640_030

Heidi Montag is, apparently, in crisis. Her friends are super worried and say she might be suicidal after having breakdowns for weeks.  After more than 12 surgical procedures in just 2 years, Montag’s supposedly battling depression.

She confided in her friends, saying “The way people treat me, I may as well be dead.” A source confirms, “Heidi hates herself, which is why she’s got into this mess. No matter how many times she goes under the knife, it doesn’t take away from the fact she’s the same insecure person underneath.” And it gets worse! “She’s doped up to her eyes on painkillers and has terrible mood swings.”

Apparently, that Pratt of a husband is probably not helping the situation in the least. She’s been acting “out of it” for weeks now, and hubby Spencer Pratt has taken control of her post-surgery painkillers. The source continued, “Heidi’s completely addicted, which has everyone worried sick. She slurs her words and seems unfocused. We think it’s the painkillers. We want her to go to rehab before it’s too late.” Get help. Now.
