Chris Brown and Usher cheered an Orlando Magic game two weeks ago, and now Rihanna is rooting courtside for the Lakers. Coincidence? It wouldn’t be the first time she timed a public appearance in contrast to Brown’s activities. Maybe the singer’s trying to keep her ex from showing up when the games head back to Florida. We’ll find out tomorrow night!
Attending alongside Rihanna were such familiar faces as Jack Nicholson, Adam Levine and frienemies Leonardo DiCaprio and Zac Efron (he’ll never think you’re cool, Zac. Just accept it). Check out who else was there in the gallery below.
Looks like motherhood hasn’t matured Ashlee Simpson much. Perez Hilton says that the singer recently went off on Michelle Trachtenberg—husband Pete Wentz’s ex—worse than she did that McDonalds cashier a few years back. Seems the former lovers (and their current significant others) were coincidentally seated near each other at party in LA Monday. Things started friendly enough, with Simpson showing off baby pictures. And then…
As the evening went on and Ashlee started to get sloppier, things got out of control. She was staring directly at Michelle and starting hurling insults at her. She was grinding up on Pete like a stripper. It was actually pretty disgusting!
Simpson allegedly screamed “I hope you know, the whole time you were dating Pete, I was fucking him!” To which Trachtenberg classily responded, “I’ve never said bad things about you. I’m happy for you guys.” Simpson continued to get in the Gossip Girl star’s face until Skye Everly, wife of Blink-182‘s Mark Hoppus, escorted her out. Pete supposedly stood “mortified” throughout his wife’s rampage. Man up, dude!
Says Simpson’s rep, “It was just a misunderstanding. Ashlee has since apologized to Michelle and they remain on good terms.” We’re so sure.

Well, this was unexpected. Normally when a celeb calls Eminem out for insulting them, the rapper responds with even worse language. But after his attack on Mariah Carey inspired a threatening blog rant from Nick Cannon, Slim Shady actually seems to regret the hatorade! Here’s what he told a British radio DJ last weekend.
As a kid [I liked Mariah], definitely. With the song “Bagpipes From Baghdad,” there’s a line on there, I mean, I kinda spazzed out on that record but I guess I spazzed out on every record. There’s a line on there that was a little harsh, you know, it’s a harsh line… but you know man, the way I look at it, I said it, I had no idea he was going to take it like he took it. I had no idea Nick Cannon was gonna start wildin’ out on me. No pun intended. I heard about some of the things he was saying, I didn’t read his blog or anything. It is what it is, he’s supposed to defend his wife. I expected him to do that. But at the end of the day, it’s a line I said, but I meant to say is I wish them the best.
As in “Nick Cannon you prick, I wish you luck with the f—ing whore?” And was he a kid when he alleged to have urinated on Mariah? Once Nick finds out Em’s friend DJ Whoo Kid is calling their relationship “the first R. Kelly situation,” we’ll expect a new blog post shortly.

First Eminem rapped about alleged ex Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon (“You prick, I wish you luck with the f—— whore”). Then Cannon wrote a long, ridiculous rant on his blog about whether to respond to “Slim Lamey,” who must be a racist to talk about Carey like that—“Miss Marshall, I’m going to make you wish you never spoke my name and regret the ungodly things you said about my wife.” After the comment box blew up, Nick deleted the post. Too bad it was already cached!
While Eminem has yet to comment, an old radio interview with DJ Whoo Kid and 50 Cent where the rapper claims he once urinated on Mariah has surfaced on the web. Will Nick ignore it or once again demand Eminem “holler at [him] on some grown man s—?” And where will Spongebob Squarepants and Stewie Griffin side on this beef?
Listen to Eminem’s interview after the jump.
Brooke Hogan may think her dad was joking about understanding O.J. Simpson, but mom’s taking it very seriously. According to TMZ, Linda Hogan asked a Florida court to make Hulk pay her another $8,200 a month so she can move to California, claiming she’s in “imminent danger of becoming a victim.” She also wants $24,000 for advance rent and a deposit.
Another $100,000 a year out of his wallet. Somehow we don’t think this will make Hulk feel less like OJ.

A motherly match made in showbiz hell? Or the best, most mental-sounding celebrity pairing for a long while? Apparently Courtney Love has take it upon herself to be an American mom for Peaches Geldof, sharing her home and her wardrobe with the erstwhile Brit when she’s in the U.S.
“Courtney was one of the last people to see Peaches’ mum Paula Yates before she died and has always promised to look out for her girls. She has a special soft spot for Peaches — and the pair chat regularly on the phone and, as is the case these days, over Twitter,” a source says.
But Courtney couldn’t just be spreading maternal love — nope, reportedly she’s also been spreading rumors that Pamela Anderson is broke and trashy. Britain’s Metro reports la Love as claiming Pammy “doesn’t have a credit card” and lives on a “trailer park in Malibu”. Ladies, ladies! How old are we here? [Photos: FilmMagic, Getty Images]
The feud between Nicole Scherzinger and her fellow Pussycat Dolls has gone public. Doll Melody Thornton gave a pointed shoutout at Friday’s show in her hometown, Phoenix—“Thank you for supporting me, even though I’m not featured, you know what I’m saying?….Don’t let anyone stomp you down, ever!” Gee, think she’s talking about the “Pussycat Dolls feat. Nicole Scherzinger” credit on their last two singles?
According, to the Chicago Sun-Times, headliner Britney Spears thought the on-stage tension following Melody’s outburst had a “downer effect” on the rest of the show, inspiring Spears to lecture them that “you can hate each other off-stage…but make it work on stage.” When you need to advice from Britney Spears, something is wrong.

Miley Cyrus has come out for gay marriage following the Miss California controversy. Responding to Miss USA judge Perez Hilton‘s twittering on the subject, Cyrus noted “ya thats lame! gods greatest commandment is to love. and judging is not loving. thats why christians have such a bad rep.” She continued to consider the subject in a series of posts.
jesus loves you AND your partner and wants you to know how much he cares! thats like a daddy not loving his lil boy cuz hes gay and that is WRONG and very sad! like i said everyone deserves to be happy. i am a christian and i love you – gay or not. BECAUSE you are no different that anyone else! we are all gods children! i am not saying this so would be nice on your site (though that would be nice jk;) but because the LORD has spoken “love cuz god loves.”
It’s a brave stance for a young artist with a large audience, but even braver might be her decision to declare Heidi Montag “smart” and “amazing” for sharing a similar opinion. Thanks to Hilton’s efforts, the pair now plan to “meet up sometime” because they “have alot in common!!!!! JESUS ROCKS! WHOO HOO!” Maybe they could give The 700 Club a makeover.
Check out what else Cyrus, Montag, Britney Spears and other celebrities had to say on gay marriage in the gallery below.
The Real Housewives of New York Kelly Bensimon just keeps bringing on the drama! When she’s not fighting with her co-star Bethenny or slapping her boyfriend, Kelly is being accused of stealing someone else’s owl!
Kelly is allegedly accused of stealing an idea for a jewelry line from a former Elle colleague. Kelly and Celeste Greenberg reportedly made a verbal agreement to design and manufacture owl-themed jewelry and split the profits.
Celeste has filed a lawsuit claiming that Kelly didn’t keep her word and went off and did the designs herself! Kelly currently sells an owl pendant under her own line for $325.
Celeste has refused to comment but Kelly did – being the good press-savvy Housewife that she is – and her rep said, “This girl used to work at Elle accessories with Kelly. Kelly went out of her way to book her for freelance gigs. They went their separate ways. Now she’s coming after her because she needs money and Kelly’s name is in the press. There’s no validity to this. They never had an agreement.” [Source: NYP; Photo: Getty Images]
