Scott Stapp: Creed Frontman is Broke and Homeless, Blames Government

Scott Stapp – lead singer of the popular 90s Christian rock band Creed – posted an alarming video to his Facebook page earlier today:

In the clip, Stapp explains that he’s broke, homeless, and living in a hotel, following several days of sleeping in his truck, and eventually being admitted to an emergency room.

Stapp blames the federal government, claiming that an audit went awry, causing the IRS to seize every dollar he had to his name.

“I’m under some kind of pretty vicious attack,” Stapp says in the clip. “I still haven’t figured out why, except that about eight weeks ago I began an audit…During the course of audit a lot of things were uncovered. A lot of money was stolen from me.”

“The IRS has frozen my bank accounts two or three times to leave me completely penniless. When I called to find out why, they said,  ‘Oh we had an address mix-up. It was a clerical error. We’ll return your funds in 9 to 10 months.”

“If any of you guys were worried, just know, I’m sober; I’m safe as of right now; don’t be believe any lies, and just know the truth will prevail.”

The singer last made headlines in 2012, when it was reported that rapper T.I. saved Stapp’s life following a suicide attempt.

Stapp welcomed his third child in 2010, while he was still struggling with depression and addiction issues. It is not currently known if he is still in contact with his family.

Chet Haze: Tom Hanks’ Rapper Son Checks Into Rehab For Cocaine Addiction

Chet Haze is an aspiring hardcore rapper who also happens to be the son of beloved Hollywood icon Tom Hanks.

We’ll give you a moment to try and make sense of that.

Over the summer, we learned that Chet was “out of control” and a “huge embarrassment” to his family. We naturally assumed this had to do with his chosen career of writing odes to booties and blunts, but it turns out there was a darker side to the story.

In a Facebook status update posted earlier this week, Chet revealed that he recently completed a lengthy rehab stint.

“I’ve been struggling with substance abuse since I was 16 years old,” Haze writes. “Finally at the age of 24 I decided to get some help.”

“With 50 days of sobriety under my belt, I can honestly say I’m the happiest I’ve ever been…I’ve been blessed with the programs of AA and NA which allow me to rise above this disease…Thank you for all the love and support. GOD IS REAL!!!”

Friends say haze began to lose control of his life several months ago when he graduated from marijuana to cocaine.

“Chet developed a problem with cocaine this year,” says one source. “He always a big pot smoker, but I never thought he’d go in that direction.”

We’d like to congratulate Mr. Haze on getting sober…even if it means he’ll now be better able to focus on his rap career.

Michael Lohan and Kate Major: Married!

Troubled celebrity father Michael Lohan has married his troubled girlfriend Kate Major … who is also pregnant with their second child, according to reports.

Kate Major with Michael Lohan

TMZ reports that Lindsay Lohan’s father got married back on October 30 in a private ceremony in Hillsboro Beach, Fla., where the happy (?) couple resides.

Lindsay Lohan and her siblings Ali Lohan, Michael Lohan Jr. and Dakota (Cody) Lohan did not attend. Nor were they told about the event even happening.

Nor does Lindsay care, according to insiders.

Michael’s motivation was his soon-to-be-born child, which will be his second with Kate, who was at one time Lindsay’s assistant and also worked for Star.

Mike also has a love child, Ashley Horn, bringing his offspring total to seven in all once the new baby is born, nearly equaling his number of police run-ins.

As for Kate Major, gossip junkies may recall that she also dated Jon Gosselin at one point after his split from Kate Gosselin. She’s an interesting character.

Did we mention she and MiLo fight A LOT?!

Michael and Kate have been involved in multiple mutual arrests, which leaves us deeply concerned for the future of those kids … then again, look at Lindsay.

She’s the great American success story.

Lindsay Lohan is ‘doing better’ & she’s ‘determined to be a movie star again’


Here are some photos of Lindsay Lohan out and about in London two weekend ago, plus some other photos I just never got around to posting, including some pics of Lindsay at a makeup event last week (those pics are at the end of the post). To her credit, Lindsay hasn’t been getting pap’d very often in the past month. I have a theory about that! I think she was partying pretty hard in rehearsals for Speed-the-Plow and then she partied hard the first few weeks of the show. But she couldn’t deal with the schedule or the parties, so she actually made the choice to not party as much. Amazing, right? Well, what if this is a whole new Cracken? Radar’s sources say that Lindsay has been doing so well in London, she wants to come back to LA and relaunch her film career. Er… good luck with that.

Is Lindsay finally ready to make a career comeback? The actress will soon be returning to the U.S. when her London play Speed-the-Plow closes on Nov. 29 — and she’s thinking about her next steps in life.

“Lindsay is doing better than she has in years!” a close friend of the once-troubled star tells exclusively. “Lindsay is determined to be a movie star again.”

“Lindsay plans to return home to her family in New York for a bit and is then heading to L.A. because she has three big movies that she is getting ready to star in,” the source reveals.

According to IMDB, Lohan is playing the lead in three several projects listed as in ‘pre-production.’ In the upcoming films Soul Carriers and Life Travelers, Lohan will star opposite James Duvall, 42, and in Six Gun Dead, she will play opposite Eric Roberts, 58.

“She almost has a clean slate after all of her legal issues,” the source notes, referring to her probation in the necklace theft case, which an L.A. Superior Court judge ended on Nov. 6. Following the court’s decision, Lohan’s attorney Shawn Holley said, “The judge was pleased, the prosecutors were pleased and of course I’m pleased that Lindsay’s doing well on probation, with her career, and generally with her life.”

As Radar previously reported, those close to the 28-year-old Mean Girls star insist that “the old Lindsay is back” and that “she has allowed all of her old friends back into her life.”

“She is still sober and we are all very supportive,’ the friend tells Radar. “We always will be.”

[From Radar]

Legally speaking, I think the state of California was just tired of dealing with her crack drama, so everybody turned a blind eye and let Lindsay complete her probation period without fulfilling all of the requirements. As for Lindsay returning to a career in films… at this point, she’s been a cracked-out mess longer than she was ever an A-list actress, and Lindsay pretty much thinks she’s going to be a huge movie star again every three to six months. She’s still talking about winning an Oscar someday, you know. But… if she is doing better (judge for yourself), then God bless. While I don’t think she’s in a good place or anything, I think she’s better right now than she was two or three years ago.

Lindsay Lohan is ‘doing better’ & she’s ‘determined to be a movie star again’


John David Duggar: Single and NOT Ready to Mingle!

Earlier this week, reports that John David Duggar is courting a “mystery brunette” had the Duggar family faithful preparing for another member of the famous family to be married off.

Now, however, it looks as though there is no chaste side-hugging romance in JDD’s life, and to make matters worse, his parents insist on reminding the world that he’s a 24-year-old virgin.

John David Duggar

“Just thought we’d set the record straight,” Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar wrote on their blog today. “John David is not courting and not in a relationship…and he has never been in one! [He is] still looking and waiting for the right one.”

JD, bro – you’re 24! The right one is anyone and the right time is now!

We kid! The Duggars have their own courtship process and it seems to be working for them so far. And from the sound of things, John shouldn’t have anything to worry about, in terms of finding a mate:

“John is still single, ladies,” the Duggars wrote online. “And he has an airplane!” 

We’ve seen enough rap videos to know there’s no point in having your own plane unless you’re filling it with willing groupies. Hopefully John David will start using that thing to get his courtin’ on in the near future.

Of course, there’s no guarantee that John will be the next to get married.

John’s twin Jana Duggar has two younger sisters who have already beaten her to the altar. Of course, there are rumors that Jana isn’t allowed to date because the family relies so heavily on her help around the house.

So apparently John David gets a plane, while Jana get an apron. Sounds like a raw deal to us.

Watch 19 Kids and Counting online to try and guess which Duggar will be married off next.

Jana Marie Duggar

Jana Marie Duggar is so beautiful … and put upon, supposedly, by a family that relies on her to help take care of the others but never have a life of her own. If that’s true, it’s sad. Is it time for her to break free?

Brandi Glanville: Trying to Find a Boyfriend, Going Too Far With Botox, Source Claims

Brandi Glanville doesn’t do anything halfway, so perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that when she’s on the market, she attacks the singles scene like the hungry cougar that she is.

Until recently, Brandi was dating some 23-year-old and creepily compared the relationship to “having a third child.”

Not surprisingly, the dude dumped Brandi (probably after she licked her thumb to wipe some schmutz off his face), and she’s once again single and desperate to mingle.

Brandi Glanville: Botox Gone Wrong?

But if you think Ms. Glanville is going after guys her own age, then you don’t know Brandi. This woman is allergic to men over 40…but that’s not the reason her face is all puffed up:

Sources say Brandi has been going overboard with her Botox treatments lately, and she’s not pleased with the results.

“Brandi is embarrassed by how it turned out,” says one insider. “She’s trying to find a boyfriend and wants to look young, but she knows she went too far.”

And how is Brandi coping with the humiliation of a disfigurement that’s unnoticeable to anyone besides herself? By guzzling booze, of course!

“Brandi’s girlfriends took her out to cheer her up,” says the source. “Nothing like a drunken night off for Brandi to shake it off!”

Ugh, she probably sang the Taylor Swift song too. Homegirl is 42 going on 14.

Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online to see Brandi desperately cling to her youth.

Brandi Glanville

Brandi’s back, and boozy as ever. Spoiler alert: At some point this season, she smacks Lisa Vanderpump. You’d HAVE to be drunk to assault such a classy lady!

She’s continuing the tradition in O magazine for the December 2014 issue. RELATED: Oprah Winfrey supports Lindsay Lohan at ‘Speed-the-Plow’ performance.

I’ll be picking this issue up. There will surely be some great gift ideas for others and myself ;).

Oprah on the holiday season:
“It’s the holiday season and one of the things I love the most about it is that we collectively, as human beings, have agreed that this is the season of giving.”

Oprah on this year’s Favorite Things list:
“I tasted, I tested, I sniffed, I touched, I lotioned, I potioned, I snuggled, I brewed, I steeped, I read, I shared, I dared, and then I did it all again…and again…and again! These wonderful things – large, small, glittery, or truffled (especially truffled) – are my favorite gifts to give and receive.”

Are you READY? The December 2014 issue of O magazine will hit newsstands on November 11!

Thomas Menino Dies: Beloved Boston Mayor Was 71

Thomas M. Menino – the longest-serving mayor in the history of the city of Boston – died today at the age of 71.

Thomas Menino

Menino was elected to his post back in 1993. He retired earlier this year after overseeing a decades-long urban renewal project that revitalized the appearance and identity of the city in which he was born and raised.

Just two months after stepping down in January of 2014, Menino announced that he was battling an advanced form of cancer that had spread to his liver and lymph nodes.

Menino’s most notable achievement in recent years may have been serving as a source of strength and guidance for frightened citizens in the wake of the Boston marathon bombing of 2013.

“Bold, big-hearted, and Boston strong, Tom was the embodiment of the city he loved and led for more than two decades,” said President Obama in a statement issued earlier today.

“As Boston’s longest-serving mayor, Tom helped mane his hometown the vibrant, welcoming, world-class place it is today. His legacy lives on in every neighborhood he helped revitalize, every school he helped turn around, and every neighborhood he helped make a safer, better place to live.”

Menino leaves behind his wife Angela, as well as two children and six grandchildren.

Philip Seymour Hoffman

R.I.P. Philip Seymour Hoffman (1967-2014). He will forever be missed!
