As a former reality star and Whitney Houston‘s on-again, off-again boyfriend, rapper Ray J is undoubtedly used to his fair share of drama. That being say, we doubt he often finds himself dealing with drama this…unseemly. According to TMZ, Ray J and Houston’s family allegedly almost got into a brawl at the Billboard Music Awards last night after Pat Houston demanded that security remove Whitney’s ex from his seat. Brandy‘s brother refused to move, and it wasn’t until security pointed out that any kind of physical fight would end up on TV that Pat Houston reluctantly retracted her demand. Jeez. Makes Ray J’s DIY porn stardom with Kim Kardashian look downright dignified, doesn’t it?
So why was Whitney’s sister-in-law/manager so determined to get Ray J kicked out of the event, which included a tribute to the late, great singer by Jordin Sparks? Allegedly Pat and the family hold Ray J somewhat responsible for Whitney’s drug abuse. Earlier this spring, Ray J found himself dodging accusations from Bobby Brown’s sister Leorah Brown, who claimed that he was Houston’s “runner boy” and provided singer with cocaine, a drug that played a significant role in her drowning death. “Pat ruined what was a great opportunity to honor the woman who I loved,” Ray J allegedly complained to friends after the awards show was over. No, no, no, an insane televised fistfight would have ruined the opportunity. This just makes everyone feel like they need to take a shower…
We don’t know what’s more distressing: news that Lindsay Lohan was allegedly involved in yet another nightclub altercation at the same bar she brawled at two weeks ago, or news that it happened while she was partying with her dad Michael Lohan. Oh wait…yeah, it’s the dad part. According to TMZ, after Lindsay’s friend had a fender bender at the Standard Hotel in L.A., Lilo called her pops and the two generations of Lohans ended up chilling together at the nightclub Smoke and Mirrors. Seeing as how “Michael Lohan” and “totally unnecessary yelling” go hand in hand, it’s not much of a surprise that Lindsay then got into it with another patron, screaming “Shut the f— up” after the clubgoer made a “snide comment” about Lilo’s dad. As if that wasn’t enough, said clubgoer ended up dousing Lindsay with her drink! Michael Lohan then allegedly “grabbed his daughter and made a beeline for the door,” which means…Papa Lohan was the most sensible person in this situation? Why is that somehow even more distressing?
In case you had forgotten, Lilo supposedly shoved a stranger at Smoke and Mirrors earlier this month; the woman later filed a report with the West Hollywood Sheriff’s department. “Lindsay was absolutely not involved in any sort of altercation whatsoever. This is clearly another case of someone looking for money and 15 minutes of fame,” Lindsay’s spokesperson Steve Honig said that the time. There’s been no statement about last night’s incident yet, but we guess we better watch what we say about Michael Lohan in the meantime. Unless we’re holding a full martini glass, of course. Which we usually are.
His Glamness Adam Lambert was arrested in Finland last month following a massive fight with his partner Sauli Koskinen outside of a club. The incident landed them both in jail, but now Glambert says things are fine between the two and chalks the whole thing up to much booze. He opened up about the experience on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this afternoon.
“What happened was, we had too much to drink. We screwed up,” he told Ellen. “There were no injuries, no violence. It was more of childish, foolish, messiness.” The argument between Adam and Sauli started in the Helsinki club DTM, but grew even more heated once they got booted out. When onlookers tried to intervene, Adam reportedly attacked them. Police were called, which resulted with several hours of jail time.”When you add alcohol to a situation, things can get out of control and some people can get upset and emotional,” he continued.
But things are still great between the couple, who were recently named the FABLife’s weekly Hotness. “I was a little irresponsible and I think what I learned from the experience was that I owe it to myself, to my loved ones, and to my fans to be a little more adult and pull it together.” Head under the jump to see what else Adam has to say!
When we get mad at someone, we usually just send them an angry text. And if we’re really pissed, maybe we’ll send an overly thought-out email. But Jeremy Renner and his friends tangoed with dudes who settle their disputes in a different, and much scarier, way: with AXES. Apparently Jeremy’s crew were traveling in Thailand when they got into a bar brawl that resulted in one man being slashed up with a rotor ax.
The incident took place at 4:30 a.m. this morning at a club in the town of Phuket, when one of Jeremy’s entourage apparently dropped a glass on the floor. According to TMZ, this triggered a violent response from six of the club’s managers, who reportedly began attacking Jeremy’s friends. The actor split when the fight broke out, his rep told TMZ, but one man, resort owner Vorasit Issara, was stabbed in the stomach with a knife and had his neck cut with an ax. Eyewitnesses say that he was in a fierce argument with the club staff immediately prior to the incident.
The six men who attacked the group are now in custody. For more, check out the video under the jump.
We’re imagining Russell Brand looking forlornly out a tavern window while a light snow starts to fall. Meanwhile Katy Perryâ€¦well, Katy Perry laughs and swims with dolphins, but inside you know she’s hurting! According to Us Weekly, the reason those Katy Perry bikini pics snapped earlier this week in Kauai featured the singer sans both husband and wedding ring is allegedly because the couple is reeling after an emotional holiday blowout. “They had a massive fight,” their source reports. “She was like, ‘F–k you. I’m going to do my own thing.’ Russell replied, ‘Fine, f–k you too.'” Hmm, that dialogue certainly seems plausible. Did they both happen to have Santa hats on? That’s how we’re picturing it, anyway.
The couple, who has been married since October 2010, had reportedly planned to spend Christmas in the Russell’s native U.K. After their alleged tiff, only Brand was spotted with a friend in a pub in Coverack, Cornwall. Hey, we understand. Whenever we have relationship problems, we like to drown our sorrows in pub food and skimpy bikinis barely able to contain our bosoms, too. Well, mainly the former. Not so much the latter. What do you think? Does spending the holidays on different continents signal the end of one of our favorite 30 Cutest Couples of 2011, or is Katy’s lack of a ring probably just tan line-related?
If TMZ has got its story straight, then Nicki Minaj got into a fight with her maid that escalated to the point where the cops were called. The bad blood between the two supposedly began a couple of weeks ago, when Nicki fired the maid for picking a photograph of the singer out of the trash and then asking Ms. Minaj to sign it. Apparently, the maid came back to Nicki’s house yesterday.
What went down after was pretty nasty. A source says that the two started exchanging heated words, with the maid telling the singer that she wouldn’t be “treated like an animal.” Nicki’s apparent response was, “I’ll show you how to treat someone like an animal … get the f— out of my house!” Now, the problem here is that other sources have stated that this was not the maid Nicki fired. The singer just got people mixed up. Nicki just thought this was the maid she had given the pink slip to. Details may be murky at the moment, but this whole incident reeks of poor taste, either way.
The dramz got even dirtier because Nicki’s boyfriend reportedly got involved and started pushing the maid around. Long story short: Said maid called the cops with the intent to file for battery, but didn’t press charges once they arrived. We’re sure more information will emerge soon enough, and we’ll be able to shed some more light on this mess.
Shia LaBeouf needs to chill. By that, we mean that he needs to stop getting into bar brawls all the time.Ã‚Â We wrote about Shia’s last fightÃ‚Â back in February but that came after a list of trouble making, including a DUI in 2008. For this round, Shia got into a huge bust-up in Vancouver, Canada, on Friday.
The actor was reportedly partying his way through theÃ‚Â Granville Street nightclub strip and got into three fights along the way. Really? Three? An eyewitness revealed to Radar, “He got into a confrontation with a couple of people. He took a few punches to the face. He was obviously pretty intoxicated.” Apparently, Shia and a barfly named Mike got into a heated punch-up with each other atÃ‚Â Cinema Public House after midnight and had to be pulled apart by security. Unfortunately, Mike went at Shia outside again when he spotted the actor waiting for a cab.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Not that Shia was backing down either. He had to be restrained by a bystander and another witness said, “The guy had to tell him something like Ã¢â‚¬Ëœcalm down or IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll have to lay you out.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ Then Shia just put his hands up and gave up.” (TMZ has a video of part of the confusing encounter.) We’re guessing the hangover the next day must have been lethal. Ease up, dude!
Lights, camera, aaaaaagh, watch your face! While promoting her upcoming directorial debut, Lifetime’s Project Five,Ã‚Â it was apparently revealed that Jennifer Aniston threw a chair at a director in a moment of fury. Somehow, that just makes us like her more. “I threw a chair at a director. It wasn’t my proudest moment. He was treating a script supervisor horribly,” Aniston explains in Elle magazine. “When the director walked in, I threw a chair at him. I missed, of course. I was like, ‘You can’t speak to people like that.’ I can’t tolerate it.” Jen declined to name the director, which means we can fantasize that it was any which one we want! So who directed Rumor Has ItÃ¢â‚¬Â¦?
Given that story, we take our hats off to the interviewer to be brave enough ask about Aniston’s interest in having a baby, ostensibly with boyfriend Justin Theroux. “There’s no desperation,” she says. “If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. I’m at peace with whatever the plan is.” Unless that plan involves her baby being mean to the script supervisor. If so that baby needs to develop his or her fine motor reflexes, and duck!
Diddy apparently has strong feelings about vodka, as one club go-er learned the hard way over the weekend. The incident began last Saturday night after the 2011 BET Hip-hop Awards in Atlanta. Diddy and his entourage rolled over to the nearby Compound club after the show, where a reveler named Ricky Parker was apparently drinking Grey Goose vodka. Whether he was doing this to intentionally piss Diddy off remains to be seen, but the rapper/Circoc Vodka spokesman definitely wasn’t happy. We’re sure he meant to express his displeasure at Ricky’s beverage choice in a sane, calm, and rational manner, befitting a man of Diddy’s stature. However, it came out of his mouth as: “B-tch ass n—s! Put that s–t down before I come smack that purple shirt off your ass!”
Things got even worse as Diddy reportedly threw ice at the man, then began screaming racial and homophobic slurs. Good thing fellow rapper T.I. was on hand to step in as the voice of reason. “Let them n—-s drink what the f–k they want man,” he begged his buddy Diddy over the club’s PA system. “I’d go to war with you, but come on man, let’s go.” T.I.’s an experienced negotiator, having already talked down a suicidal jumper, so we’re glad he was around to calm Diddy down.
It took Diddy a few days of chilling out to realize his over reaction, but last night he took to his twitter account to apologize for how he acted. “I’m sorry for the ignorant way I repesented [SIC] myself,” he typed. “I have backslid and regressed. Forgive me for my ignorance. Pray for me pls. I know better and I am better.” One dude who won’t be forgiving the rapper anytime soon is Ricky Parker, who tells TMZ that he feels “humiliated and disrespected” by Diddy. “You won’t ever hear me support him from this moment forward.” Maybe Diddy should buy him a drink?

Don’t Clevelanders already have enough to deal with without B-list celebrities showing up and punching their party bus operators? Come on, people. A few weeks after the Lost actor was detained by police for the brawl, looks like Matthew Fox’s party bus fight is about to get Matthew Fox sued. Bus driver Heather Bormann has filed a lawsuit against Fox for allegedly drunkenly assaulting her after she refused to drive him from the bar where she was parked to the Cleveland Ritz-Carlton. Oh, see, Matthew must have thought she was a regular bus driverÃ¢â‚¬Â¦that he was punching like a crazy person.
According to TMZ Bormann is allegedly asking for more than $25,000. For that amount of money, Matthew Fox could buy his own party bus, get drunk and punch himself. And if these allegations are true…he probably should.
