Love Birds!


Brad Pitt
and Angelina Jolie are looking more and more like husband and wife.
When together the scene is that  of family bliss as the couple enjoy an outing at a shopping mall with Angelina's adopted kids. And they will increase speculation that the Hollywood stars will soon walk down the aisle.
With four-year-old Maddox calling him "daddy," Brad trawled through the Galaxyland indoor amusement park at the West Edmonton Mall in Canada with Angelina, who held baby Zahara.
The superstar couple perused an array of shops, then picked up some fast food at Taco Bell before going back to their movie star lives.

The happy family daytrip only heightened whispers that the discreet couple are planning to make their relationship official. With Brad's divorce from Jennifer Aniston due to become final on October 1, little Maddox could soon be calling Brad his daddy for real. Shopper Blaire Schmermune said Brad, 41, "looked like the father-figure" to Angelina's son. "Maddox called him daddy," she added.

Another shopper, Ashley Cipywnyk, said: "Brad looked like he was having fun. When they went into the play place, they were running around and screaming."

She said Angelina, 30, had her hands full with eight-month-old Zahara so she didn't join in the antics.

And just in case any doubts remained over the nature of Brad and Angelina's relationship, witness Rosemary Austen said she saw them share a "pretty sexy" kiss. "It was full on," she said. "They were necking."

Brad is in Canada to shoot his latest movie The Assassination Of Jesse James, and Angelina flew there to spend time with him after attending a film premiere in New York with her first husband Jonny Lee Miller.
Friends say Miller — still one of Angelina's pals — has given his blessing to her relationship with Brad.

No Leather Boots For Me!

Sources say, when Joaquin Phoenix walks the line in a Johnny Cash biopic, it will be in plastic cowboy boots. The moody actor is a staunch animal-rights supporter, and drove the wardrobe folks a little batty by insisting on wearing an entirely “cruelty-free” wardrobe, says a source.

“He refused to wear anything made of leather,” says a source. “So even Johnny Cash’s signature cowboy boots had to be approved by PETA.”

Lawyer Denies Drugs Belong to Boy George

 
NEW YORK (AP) - A lawyer for Boy George is denying that drugs found in the British singer's apartment belonged to him. Authorities said the singer, whose real name is George O'Dowd, was arraigned on drug charges early Saturday.

He had called 911 to report that his home had been burglarized around 3 a.m. Friday, said Detective Kevin Czartoryski, a police spokesman.

Officers arrived at O'Dowd's apartment and discovered a small amount of cocaine next to a computer, police said. They were continuing to investigate.

The singer was released Saturday without bail after being charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, allegedly more than an eighth of an ounce of cocaine, said Barbara Thompson, a spokeswoman for the Manhattan District Attorney's office. He was scheduled to return to court on Dec. 19.

``It was a small amount of drugs,'' lawyer Lou Freeman told the New York Post for Saturday editions. ``He does not know where it came from. He's had a lot of people in his house.''

``A man who has something to hide does not call police,'' he said.

It is not the first time that Boy George has had problems with drugs.

In 1986, the singer was convicted for heroin possession in England. Two of his friends overdosed in the incident and O'Dowd was forced into a rehabilitation program. The conviction led to the disintegration of his group, Culture Club, one year later.

Boy George, famous for his androgynous persona, and Culture Club had hits including ``Karma Chameleon'' and ``Do You Really Want to Hurt Me.''

Kate Moss & Scientology


According to reports, Scientology has a message for Kate Moss: We can help. Reps of the controversial religion are “reaching out” to the model, offering to help her beat her drug problem, says a well-placed source. Moss was recently dropped from a lucrative modeling contract when she was photographed snorting lines of coke.

“Scientology has become quite proactive in reaching out to people,” says the source. “Kate is a woman who needs help and Scientology feels that they can steer her in the right direction.”

According to source, Scientologists will be urging Moss to undergo treatment with Narconon, a drug treatment program with strong links to Scientology. Greg LaClaire, head of the Scientology’s Celebrity Center declined comment, we don’t talk about the private lives of anyone.” Cookie: Drugs and cigarrettes are part of a Model's lives... What a girl to do?  Kate will get fat  is she stops!! Hello!

Kiss And Make Up?

Don’t believe those reports that Eminem has written a letter to Mariah Carey, suggesting that they patch things up and become friends. “He’s not a guy who plays nice like that,”

 According to Eminem’s spokesman.
    Cookie: Mariah can forget about getting n apology form Eminem... Not even in her dreams! 

I write the songs

I write the songs & I have To Pay?
Paul McCartney is not looking to buy the rights to the Beatles’ catalogue of music from Michael Jackson — despite widespread reports to the contrary. He does, admit, however, that it’s “annoying” to have to pay for the rights to perform the songs he co-wrote when he plays them in the U.S.

When word came out that Jackson was hoping to sell the tunes to help pay off some of his debt, several of McCartney’s friends, including rocker Bono, urged him to snap them up. But McCartney isn’t taking their advice.

“The thing is, I get some money from the publishing already. It’s not like I’m getting nothing at the moment,” McCartney tells the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone. “And in a few years, more of the rights automatically revert to me. The only annoying thing is, when I tour in America, I have to pay to play some of my own songs. But I don’t think about that. Because if I did, it would be [bleeping] annoying. “

Madonna Parts Ways With
 David LaChapelle



Madonna may have found a new director to replace David LaChapelle. The two parted ways, citing “artistic differences” over her video “Hung Up.” The buzz is he’s being replaced by Johan Renck, who worked with Madonna on “Nothing Really Matters.”
Who Wears The Pants In the Family?

One more Madonna gossip bit... Guy Ritchie
confesses that he was “always soft” and that his wife is the tough one in the marriage. “She was up and running in no time,” he said of Madonna’s riding accident. “We went off to France the next day — much against my advice. She’s definitely the tough side of the family."

              Britney Spears singing the postpartum blues? 

Sources tell me Spears has been moody since giving birth to her son. “Brit’s mood has been up and down since she came home,” a Spears family friend told Life & Style Weekly. “She’s been crying through the smiles,” adds the friend. According to Spears’ rep, "Brit is doing fine".

According to sources, Ms. Spears is worried about getting back her figure, and is concerned that her caesarean scar won’t heal completely. There’s also a report that hubby Kevin Federline almost forgot the couple’s September 18 anniversary — but made it up to her by buying a sapphire “mother’s ring.”

Cookie: I give them about another six months before Brit and Federline head for divorce court.

Baby On The Way!


Katie Holmes Pregnant!... Really?
Tom's publicist confirmed that 26-year-old Katie is pregnant. "I can confirm the wonderful news, Tom's sister Lee Anne Devette said in a statement.  Katie thought to have conceived about three months ago and is expecting to give birth in the spring. She has hardly been seen in public for the past six weeks — but she appeared looking tired and pale with Tom in Los Angeles recently. According to sources, Katie is already sporting a baby bump.
Tom is said to be "jubilant" at the news. He has two adopted children with ex-wife Nicole Kidman, but this will be his first naturally-born child. The couple's publicist refused to give any further details.

 Cookie: If Tom can make babies how come Nicole Kidman never had a baby bump? Just asking.

Angelina's Baby Trouble?

Outraged Angelina Jolie has vowed never to give up her baby girl after African authorities ordered an investigation into claims that eight-month-old Zahara was illegally adopted.
According to sources  Ethiopian government official told The National Enquirer that the 30-year-old Tomb Raider star may face a new court battle if the probe confirms the alleged irregularities.
 The devoted mom may even be asked to return to Ethiopia and reapply for Zahara's adoption.
The shocking new development will stun the star, who has nursed the baby back to strength since bringing her to America in July. "Angelina spent a lot of time trying to ensure everything went smoothly," said a source close to the star in Los Angeles. "She is certain no laws were broken — but she will not risk going back to Ethiopia with Zahara. There is no way she will ever give up that child.

She would rather give up her life."Angelina did not return calls for comment, but she is understood to be furious that questions have been raised over the adoption.  The conflict centers on a claim that an Ethiopian member of Wide Horizons For Children, the U.S.-based agency representing Angelina, misled the African authorities.  Documents filed in court stated Zahara's mom was dead. However, new reports suggest that she is alive — and named her as 18-year-old seamstress Mentaweb Dawit, who says she gave birth after being raped. "I want them both to know I love them very much," the Ethiopian teenager told The Sun newspaper in Britain. "And I want to say thank you to Angelina for giving my baby this wonderful, loving family." The sensational claim has thrown the adoption back under the legal microscope.

"The adoption could be illegal because the law in Ethiopia says that if the mother is still alive she must give her consent and in this case that may not have happened," said Ethiopian adoption law specialist Belay Ketema. "If the mother is in fact alive, the adoptive mother — Angelina Jolie — must appear in court to nullify the old papers and re-apply for the adoption. The baby's mother must also appear to give her consent. "If the real mother refuses, that could cause all sorts of problems and mean the adoption would never become legal."

Angelina believed Zahara was an orphan when she flew into Ethiopia on June 28 with Brad Pitt and her adopted son, Maddox, three, to pick up her new daughter. It was reported at the time that Zahara's grandmother was Almaz Blfnhe, 45, from the squalid town of Awassa, and that she had given up the baby for adoption after her own daughter died following childbirth. Angelina is understood to have paid around $10,000 for the adoption...

Cookie: And the saga continues... I will keep you posted!

Katie Holmes Pregnant -And Not Married!
Now, that's a great way to catch man!!


And speaking of babies... Katie Holmes might not take too well to certain aspects of motherhood. Sources tell me last spring, in an unpublished part of an interview, the woman who is now pregnant with Tom Cruise’s child told Cosmo Girl, “My sisters are raising children and when I think I’ve had a hard day and they tell me about potty training, I’m like ‘Oh my God, if I had to do that I would freak out!"
Cookie: If Katie thinks potty training will freak her out , wait till she gains a ton of weight as the baby grows insider of her! Hello!

Alley's Great Undies Deal!

Fruit of the Loom has offered a great deal no so fat anymore KIRSTIE ALLEY, if she'll wear their underware — a million buck$$! The undies giant wants Kirstie, who's lost nearly 50 pounds on her Fat Actress diet, to be spokesperson for their new "oversized women" line called Fit For Me. According to Insiders Kirstie's agreed verbally, but wants to lose 10 more pounds before the commercials are shot.

Cookie: I hope I never have to fit in to one of those parachutes... I'll shoot myself!! Yikes!



WAS RENEE'S MARRIAGE OVER RIGHT AFTER THE WEDDING?

According to sources RENÉE ZELLWEGER's surprising split with brand-new hubby KENNY CHESNEY: the marriage went to hell because she... surprised him! The end began soon after the wedding, when Renée suddenly joined Ken Doll on his concert tour bus for what she'd planned as a two-week "second honeymoon" — hauling aboard stacks of suitcases packed with designer duds, froo-froo kicks and girlie bahgegalore.  Insiders say that at first, the newlyweds were huggy-kissy-lovey-dovey — but after continually tripping over wifey's unpacked bags in the cramped bus, Kenny went koo-koo! He ordered Renée to pack up most of her crap, and — ignoring her shrieks of protest — directed a staffer to ship nearly all of it back home! Outraged by Kenny's country-boy macho 'tude, Renée exploded and the couple fought and screamed non-stop until she snatched her stuff and split in a fury — ending the "love-fest" after just one day. Arriving back in L.A., shaken Renée confessed to pals that she feared the marriage was already doomed. I phoned Chesney's rep, who denied all. Zellweger's PR never responded.

Cookie: What did she expect?... She marry a cowboy!


Trouble in paradise for Britney Spears and her hubby?


Insiders tell me, the couple has acknowledged rough patches in the early days of their marriage, and it looks like having a baby hasn’t helped things. The buzz is that Kevin Federline — who walked out on his pregnant girlfriend and child to be with Spears — isn’t taking too well to fatherhood this time around either. Since Spears brought home little Sean Preston, his dad has been “a real brat” — hitting golf balls, partying and chatting on the phone until well into the night, an insider tells Life & Style Weekly. Spears has reportedly complained that she’s “raising two kids now.”
After one particularly nasty row, Federline moved into a friend’s house for three days, according to the mag. But Spears’ mom, Lynne, has reportedly come to the rescue and is helping the couple through its tough patch.
Cookie: Spears’ rep didn’t respond to my request for comment.

To Be Or Not To Be... Paris

Former child star Shirley Temple Black has some very grown-up criticism of Paris Hilton.
The 77-year-old former curly topped cutie has blasted Hilton, saying that those like the partying heiress are “stealing the thunder from really talented actors who have learnt their craft,” reports the London Express.

 
Another Shirley is also taking aim at Hilton. Shirley MacLaine, who was named after Temple, had unkind words for Hilton. “She just shops and turns up to parties,” said MacLaine while promoting her film “In Her Shoes.” “So she wears pink and has blonde hair and suddenly she calls herself not a starlet or an ingénue — no, according to Paris, she is a movie star!”Hilton recently wrapped her first lead roles in "Bottom’s Up" and "Pledge This," which further irks MacLaine. “It irritates me as in my day you had to really work,” said MacLaine. “It took Bette Davis seven years of hard slog to reach the point where her name was above the title on a movie.”

Cookie: Paris is just another fake blonde in Hollyweird! If her name wasn't Hilton, I doubt she would be working... talented she is not!

Pregnant & No Wedding Date?
 

According to reports, Tom Cruise’s future father-in-law seems not to be very happy with his daughter's pregnancy. Katie Holmes’s dad is said to be “very upset” because his unmarried daughter is pregnant with Cruise’s child. And, what’s more, the devoutly Catholic Martin Holmes reportedly is none-too-thrilled about his daughter’s involvement in her husband-to-be’s controversial religion, Scientology.

Insiders say Martin Holmes was very upset and got into a real spat with Katie,” the forthcoming issue of Life & Style Weekly quotes “a close friend” of Cruise as saying. “Tom had promised her parents that they would do the right thing and get married before any baby came along.” The insider went on to say, after scolding his daughter, Martin Holmes berated Cruise by declaring “You’re no good.”

Michael Jackson Falls Outside Theater

 
LONDON (AP) - Michael Jackson fell to the ground as he tried to make his way through a throng of hundreds of fans outside the Victoria Palace theater, where he watched the stage version of the movie ``Billy Elliot.''

Security staff forced a path for Jackson, 47, through the admirers and photographers standing outside the theater so he could reach the front door. But the singer fell in the commotion.

At the performance, Jackson mingled with other spectators, chatting and signing autographs.

``He talked to us saying hello and there were a lot of people around him,'' said Roxanne Wisenberg, 47, of San Diego. ``He was very nice and his children were with him.''

Jackson was in London to work on recording a song to benefit Hurricane Katrina victims. He was staying at the Dorchester Hotel in Park Lane, where fans gathered outside in hopes of seeing him.

The visit to Britain was believed to be his first since his acquittal in June of child molestation charges. He has spent much of his time in Bahrain.

Kosher Or Not?

Some skeptics have a question about Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher’s marriage: is it really kosher?

The pair was married by Eitan Yardeni, a rabbi for the Kabbalah Centre, the controversial mystical offshoot of Judaism. But some Kabbalah watchers say there may be a problem: they say that as best they can tell, Yardeni isn’t an ordained rabbi.

“From my research, it appears that Yardeni is a rabbi only because the head of the Kabbalah Centre said, ‘You are a rabbi,’” Rick Ross of Cultnews.com tells The Scoop. “That doesn’t mean that the marriage isn’t legal — but it sure isn’t kosher!”

Another Star Couple Bites The Dust
!

According to reports a Los Angeles judge has signed off on the divorce of Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt, but under California law, the former golden couple's split is now official.

Divorce papers were filed Aug. 19 in Los Angeles Superior Court after being signed earlier by retired Judge Jill S. Robbins. Aniston and Pitt had sought Robbins to handle their breakup privately.

Pitt and Aniston separated in January after 41/2 years of marriage. Aniston filed for divorce in March, citing irreconcilable differences.

Since their split, Pitt has been linked to Angelina Jolie, his "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" co-star. They have not commented publicly on their relationship.

In an interview in Vanity Fair, Aniston said she still loved Pitt but was getting on with her life.

"The sad thing, for me, is the way it's been reduced to a Hollywood cliche -- or maybe it's just a human cliche," she told the magazine.

No More 50 Cent For Fox!

According to reporte, Actress Vivica Fox has some harsh words for her ex-sweetie, 50 Cent. She calls his way of dealing with their break-up “ghetto love.”

The bad press about the relationship lasted longer than the relationship itself, the “Missing” star told talk show host Tyra Banks, and she believes she was cast as the villain in the whole process.

“Why do you think the press does that?” Banks asked.
“No, it wasn’t the press — it was him!” Fox replied, according to a source familiar with the show, which airs Thursday. “He was like, ‘She’s exploiting me, she’s trying to use me to get publicity.’. . . . But, you know, I just considered that ghetto love.  It was his way of dealing with the break-up.”    

Fox also said that she has 13 tattoos — and one on her arm that says “Strength, Courage & Wisdom” is due to 50 Cent: “After my break-up with 50 Cent, that was a song [India.Arie’s “Strength, Courage & Wisdom”] I listened to almost every day because I needed strength, courage, and wisdom to never let that happen to me again.”
Cookie: Vivica get another tatoo that says: How stupid was I to mark my body with so many tatoos!!


Sources tell me Kanye West at a London nightclub had his own Oprah/Hermes "sorry you can't come in "experience".

The ultra hot rapper was refused entry into a London nightclub when a doorman didn’t recognize him, according to overseas reports. West was in the UK promoting his album “Late Registration” and had given a performance at Abbey Road studios. But when he tried to get in to West End club Chinawhite, he was reportedly turned away.

“Kanye rocked up at Chinawhite at around 2.30am with his entourage. They parked their two silver Mercedes people carriers outside the club and all of them headed to the door,” according to the London Mirror. “The people on the door said it was members’ only and they didn’t seem to recognize him at all.” The report adds that “Kanye was gracious but he was fuming. His big night had been ruined.” Spokesmen for Chinawhite couldn’t be reached for comment.
Cookie:
It cannot be denied, the world is full of stupid people!

Photographer charged in Witherspoon incident.


A A photographer was charged with child endangerment and battery for allegedly striking a 5-year-old child with his camera and shoving another out of the way to take pictures of Reese Witherspoon and her children.

Todd K. Wallace, 44, was charged Friday and was due back in court Wednesday, Assistant City Attorney Patrick Ahle said.


The photographer also is charged with battering the 5-year-old’s mother, who is a friend of Witherspoon, and two employees at a Disney theme park, said Anaheim Police Sgt. Rick Martinez.


Wallace became angry when the “Legally Blonde” star and her friends declined to be photographed Sept. 2 at Disney’s California Adventure and cursed them, Martinez said. Wallace was initially cited for misdemeanor assault and battery of the two employees.
The incident left some of the children in tears.Tabloids must realize that “battering and endangering a child to get a picture for their magazines is criminal and not business as usual,” said Witherspoon’s attorney, Blair Berk.

A phone message left for Wallace early Saturday was not immediately returned. He served more than four years in prison after a 1993 conviction of second-degree burglary and receiving goods by fraud, according to state corrections records.

In August, prosecutors decided not to charge photographers whom Witherspoon said chased her from her gym and trapped her outside the West Los Angeles gated community where she lives with her husband, actor Ryan Phillippe, and their two children.
