In TMZ’s video footage of Lindsay Lohan being taken away in cuffs by the NYPD this morning, the actress can be heard echoing everyone’s thoughts: “Are you kidding me?” Nope, unfortunately, they were not kidding. According to WABC, Lohan was arrested at 4 a.m. outside New York’s Club Avenue and charged with third-degree assault for allegedly striking a 28-year-old woman in the face.
According to TMZ, law enforcement sources say Lindsay and the other woman were seated at different booths in the club and exchanged heated words. Lindsay reportedly told her, “Give me my space,” and shortly after that punched the woman in the face. By 8 a.m., Lohan was released from the station with a desk appearance ticket. The woman, who was snapped leaving the precinct as well, did not need medical treatment.
We’re really kind of wondering if Lindsay just feels like she has nothing to lose these days. She’s facing a possible return to jail already, if it’s determined that her lie to the cops about driving in her accident this summer amounts to a probation violation. We can only imagine what an assault charge would do to that case. She dodged a bullet earlier this year when prosecutors decided not to charge her for that alleged hit-and-run — in front of another New York club.
Linds, please stay away from the clubs. Also, let a bodyguard fight your battles for you!
Here’s an unfortunate gallery of Lindsay’s mugshots. (SMH.)
Olive, who let you grow up? We know we’ve been agog at the newly grown-up Abigail Breslin before, but can we say how struck we are by Tyler Shields‘ glam new portraits of the Little Miss Sunshine actress? Somehow Abigail Breslin has been in the lime light during the most awkward years of any human beings life (approximately age 11 to 13) and managed to look adorbs the entire time. Check out our A.B. gallery below if you don’t believe us. Abigail never looked like we did in middle school. Never.
Two and a Half Men star Angus T. Jones‘apology statement released yesterday makes it pretty clear that someone quite firmly reminded him that no matter what new opinions he holds of his hit sitcom, that “filth” pays him a whole lot of money. Money he could probably put to some good Christian use, if he chooses. Hence the contrite words: “I apologize if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed.”
But if exec producer Chuck Lorre and company decide to send Angus the way of his former onscreen uncle Charlie Sheen, that doesn’t have to mean the end of the 19-year-old’s career. He could join these five other celebrities who turned their born-again Christianity into brand-new gigs:
1. Stephen Baldwin
The Baldwin bro visited Good Morning America today and voiced his support and sympathy for Jones, as someone who’s experienced a backlash against his outspoken ways (seriously, this guy called Obama a “cultural terrorist” once). “As a Christian, I had a casting director come up to me two years ago and say, ‘I’m really sorry because I’ve brought your name up in castings for a while now and they all just kind of look at me like I’m crazy,” he said. Now, he’s gone “full-blown faith-based,” acting in Christian themed movies like Loving the Bad Man, about a woman who forgives her rapist. Ick. And then he’ll be back on Celebrity Apprentice soon, which is full-blown … something else.
We cringed earlier this year after hearing about Lisa Robin Kelly‘s arrest for domestic abuse in April, specifically when we spotted her wild-eyed mugshot. As you can see from the That ’70s Show star’s most recent booking photo, sadly, not much has changed. TMZ first reported Kelly’s arrest following an alleged violent incident at her home in North Carolina Monday night; both the former actress and her husband were arrested and jailed as a result of the assault. Combine this news with her mugshots and that extremely unfortunate Good Morning America interview Lisa did this past spring, and you’ve painted a pretty depressing picture of where Laurie Foreman ended up after leaving Wisconsin, especially when compared to her costars.
Gabriel Aubry broke even yesterday when it came to legal wrangling in the aftermath of his Thanksgiving Day altercation with Halle Berry’s fiance, Olivier Martinez. First, the court refused to lift a prohibition on him getting within 100 yards of his and Berry’s daughter, Nahla, according to TMZ. But at the same time, law enforcement sources said he probably won’t be prosecuted for battery, since it was a case of “mutual combat.”
While all this is going on, we took a step back to review some interesting things about Halle’s current and former men, things that are sorta relevant to this situation:
1. Martinez, the son of a professional boxer, told Ocean Drive magazine last month that when he was considering taking up the sport himself, ” I a good left hook — but keep that a secret.”
2. Last year, the Telegraph named Aubry one of the top 10 earning male models in the industry. Despite his nice income, Berry was reportedly ordered to give him $20,000 a month in child support. Read more…
Fans of pseudo-incestual relationships will be devastated to learn today that Bobbi Kristina Brown and her boyfriend/adopted brother Nick Gordon are on the rocks! Neither camp has spoken out, but the daughter of music legend Whitney Houston has posted some revealing tweets that suggest there is serious trouble in paradise. We know, we know – we thought they were going to last forever, too! At least they’ll see each other at Christmas. And, you know, all other family holidays.
The social media rant started on Monday evening, when Bobbi kicked off a series of frustrated messages by writing “I’m leaving, this this good ole town and driving to the send of the world. Maybe it’s beautiful there (: Xxxo” Things got more pointed (and less grammatically accurate) soon afterwards, as the tweet avalanche begins in full force. “Who do I trust in this world? Pfft well that’s easy beezie, #Myself, No1 will kno’s me like ME&They’d rather not take thtchance2knoME, &2me. That’s incredibly fine .. Because you’d be missing out on a #REALperson. Xxo #amryofme #onmyown #goingtomakeit #determined. ” We had some trouble translating all the text-speak, but it seems like she’s pissed.
Jessica Simpson is pregnant again, according to an unnamed source who revealed the news exclusively to Us Weekly. The singer/designer/TV host’s rep, on the other hand, is completely mum on the news. So should we believe that she’s expecting, just under seven months after giving birth to Maxwell Drew? Given how secretive JSimps was about her first pregnancy, not saying a thing even long after her bump was visible, she could be. But we also think it’s really crappy of someone else to leak this story to the world (probably for some good cash), before Jessica and fiance Eric Johnson were ready to do so.
First of all, we suspect the pregnancy was a surprise to them. A little medical background (if you don’t like knowing how women’s bodies work do not read this paragraph): Maxwell was born in May. If Jessica waited the customary 12 weeks to tell her family of the good news, she conceived this new kid just three months after giving birth. Most doctors actually recommend waiting a year before having another child, to allow your body to recover. But if Jessica was breastfeeding baby Maxwell, her chances of conceiving were super low — though not unheard of — and it’s really hard to tell whether or not you’re pregnant right after having a baby, because your cycle is all out of whack. Based on all of this knowledge, we understand why the new parents would want to reveal the sensitive news on their own timeline. Read more…
Flame wars happen all the time on the internet, but things are getting scarily real in the Twitter feud between one-man controversy machine Chris Brown and writer Jenny Johnson. The social media beef on the Sunday resulted in Brown deleting his account after dishing out a barrage of misogynistic, offensive and frankly pretty gross insults directed toward the comedian. But now some members of Team Breezy are apparently not happy, and they’re making their displeasure known by making death threats against Johnson.
But the Texas-based writer is taking it all in stride. “We are doing a bit of investigating… to see who are writing them and if they should be taken seriously, or just something we need to ignore,” she told Celebuzz. “We are trying to discover if it’s just a bunch of kids goofing off or something else. I’m just letting it go right now.” She admitted to being surprised that the beef with the celeb went as far as it did. “I was surprised to wake up and read about it and find my name on The View and CNN.”
Gabriel Aubry is heading to court today, TMZ reports, to ask a judge to lift the prohibition on him seeing daughter Nahla, following his Thanksgiving Day brawl with Halle Berry’s fiance, Olivier Martinez. As we mentioned yesterday, the Canadian model filed papers accusing Martinez of being the aggressor in the fight, which left Aubry with the frightening injuries you see above. Read more…
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have basically been traveling the world nonstop for the past month, so yeah, we don’t expect them to get off the plane in full makeup and Gucci suits these days. But in the photo above, of the pair arriving back in LAX after a flight from New York, they still look a billion times better than, say, I did yesterday after a little Thanksgiving trip to Florida. They don’t even have bags under their eyes! Which is why we want to scream at the people who have jumped on these pics as proof of something or other.
Oh, that baggy T-shirt KStew’s wearing is definitely hiding a baby bump, some gossips say. It couldn’t possibly be just a casual shirt donned over skintight jeans (and I can assure you, THOSE are the first to go when there’s a bump in progress) for a cross-country flight. Read more…
