Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
are looking more and
more like husband and
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
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.

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
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
Kate Moss & Scientology
According to reports,
Scientology has a message for Kate Moss: We can help. Reps of the

“Scientology has become quite proactive in reaching out to people,”

WAS RENEE'S MARRIAGE OVER RIGHT AFTER THE WEDDING?
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.

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

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
``He talked to us saying hello and there were a lot of people around

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
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!”
