Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart Threaten Legal Action Over Tabloid Cover Stories



Casper Smart frequent exotic massage parlors and/or is a homosexual seeking fast and easy one-night stands.

So claim a pair of tabloid cover stories this week, both of which have prompted Jennifer Lopez and her boyfriend to threaten lawsuits against the publications behind them.

The first, from In Touch, quotes a couple of employees at a massage parlor in New York City who allege Smart has stopped by for appointments there twice in the last month.

Star, meanwhile, asserts that the dancer was caught at a peep show in the Big Apple last month, somewhere that’s a “well-known cruising spot for gay men looking for instant hookups.”

According to TMZ, the couple’s attorneys, Shawn Holley and Howard Weitzman, have sent letters to both magazine warning that the “reports” are “false, malicious and defamatory” and will cause “immense damage” to Jennifer and Casper’s careers and reputations. They pair will follow up with legal action unless retractions are printed.

No response so far from In Touch or Star.

Nicki Minaj "Doesn’t Approve" of Drake-Chris Brown Feud



Nicki Minaj recently commented on the feud between Chris Brown and Drake, her Young Money label-mate, by claiming that she “doesn’t approve” of the beef.

The now-infamous Chris Brown-Drake fight that broke out last month at an NYC club left many injured and got the establishment shut down in the aftermath.

All over Rihanna too, allegedly. Speaking to the BBC, Nicki weighed in:

“I don’t approve of talented people doing things that aren’t conducive to an amazing career. I spoke to Drake, and I told him from the bottom of my heart how I felt.”

“I’m like, ‘Baby, you are a superstar, and I need you to realize that.”

Speaking to Tim Westwood on BBC Radio 1 Xtra, Minaj revealed that, although she thought Drake was innocent, he still needed to be careful of his reputation.”

“He did nothing wrong, of course. Rumors are rumous, and that there’s what it is. Sometimes, you just need to go to bed. Go to the hotel and have an early nap.”

“At the end of the day, there’s nothing wrong with that.”

Words to live by, Drizzy. Words to live by.

Whose side are you on in the feud?

Tom Cruise Divorce: Katie Holmes Stalked By Scientology Minions?



The impending Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes divorce apparently has the actress feeling uneasy and convinced the Church of Scientology now views her as a threat.

As such, Holmes believes the church put a team on her tail.

Katie reportedly believes that in recent weeks, as discord between herself and Tom grew and they began living apart – even while both were in New York City in mid-June – Scientology higher-ups have been following her every move.

It’s unclear if this is in fact the case, but Scientology has been linked to such activity for years, and sources say “mysterious” men have photographed Katie when she’s out, with vehicles spotted near her apartment around the clock.

A white Cadillac Escalade and black Mercedes SUV have been outside her place for the past week. Again, it’s unclear who, if anyone, is tailing Katie Holmes.

The actress filed for sole custody of Suri in New York last week, a move Tom allegedly had no idea was coming. His ties to Scientology are said to be a big reason.

It’s unclear what “threat” Katie would pose. She’s given no indication of trying to expose anything or portray it negatively; she likely just wants to shield her daughter from the controversial religion and be done with it.

New York courts are more inclined than those in California to award sole legal custody to one parent or the other when there is conflict.

She has been setting up residence there in recent weeks, preparing for the move.

If she is being stalked by Scientologists, that would certainly bolster her case in court. Katie, 33, wed Tom, 49, in 2006, a few months after Suri was born.

For more on the religion and specifically what it means to the famous actor, check out this Tom Cruise Scientology video that was leaked in 2008.

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes to Divorce; Actress Files For Sole Custody of Suri



Now that’s a celebrity breakup we did not see coming today. After more than five years of marriage, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting a divorce.

While many of us were skeptical when they first got together and Tom was proclaiming his love for her on Oprah’s couch, the divorce still comes out of left field.

“This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,” says Holmes’ attorney Jonathan Wolfe, confirming the TomKat split Friday.

“Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.”

Tom, Kat

After a relatively brief courtship, the Rock of Ages star, 49, married the former Dawson’s Creek star Holmes, 33, in an Italian castle in 2006.

They have one daughter, six-year-old Suri.

No reason was given for the impending Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes divorce, but the couple has not been seen in public together since February (below).

This was Holmes’ first marriage and the third for Cruise, who previously was married to Nicole Kidman, with whom he has two adopted children, and Mimi Rogers.

It is unclear if divorce papers have formally been filed, but Tom and Katie are believed to have a prenuptial agreement, and are worth at least $275 million.

Obviously, Tom’s earnings comprise the bulk of that, but Kate will no doubt receive a significant settlement. Here’s wishing both the best in this tough time.

UPDATE, 2:11 EDT: Katie filed for divorce in New York on June 28, citing the catch-all “irreconcilable differences.” She makes no mention of the prenup.

She is asking for sole legal custody and “primary residential custody” of Suri and for a “suitable amount” of child support, plus a division of property.

According to TMZ, Tom “did not see this coming” and there is some “nastiness” going on here, as evidenced by Katie’s move to get sole legal custody.

UPDATE, 4:00 EDT: Tom is “very sad,” according to another source.

Photos show he was seen wearing his wedding ring just two days ago while filming a new movie in Iceland; Katie also wore her ring this week in New York.

Cruise’s rep also released a brief statement saying:

“Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy to work this out.”

Chuck Norris Accuses Obama of "Pro-Gay Boy Scouts" Policy



Here’s a new Chuck Norris fact for you: the actor is very unhappy with Barack Obama right now.

In light of James Turley – a Boy Scouts of America official and CEO of the accounting firm Ernst & Young – recently stating that he planned on working to change the longtime rule that bans homosexuals from serving as Scout leaders, Norris has penned a column for Ammo Land that places the blame for this maneuver on the President’s shoulders.

Running down the connections between Turley and Obama (e.g. they were just guests at a state dinner and Turley was nominated to President Obama’s Export Council in 2010) and citing the President’s support of same-sex marriage, Norris believes Turley is catering to a “pro-gay” Obama agenda.

Writes/asks Norris:

Hasn’t America reached a new low in its history when its president (and the honorary president of the BSA!) distances himself and his administration from the Boy Scouts of America yet invites groups such as the Secular Student Alliance to participate in its faith and college missions?

Adding that he has personally “known a host of Boy Scouts, Eagle Scouts and BSA leaders,” Norris concludes that these individuals epitomize the best of America,” which seems to imply gay BSA leaders would epitomize… the worst?

Where do you stand? Should gays be allowed to serve as Boy Scout leaders?

Miley Cyrus Wedding: Not Going Down This Weekend



Miley Cyrus loves being a fiancee. But she isn’t ready to be a bride just yet, despite a mysterious Tweet posted over the weekend.

“Super lazy Sunday!” the star wrote yesterday, adding: “Can’t wait for next week! It’ll be filled with happiness.”

Naturally, such enthusiasm led many to believe that Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth were planning to tie the knot in just a few days, but the actor’s rep has come out and shot down that notion.

Miley Cyrus, Puppy

Liam is filming a movie in New York and will only be “back in LA for a night next week to receive an award from Australians in Film on the 27th,” the Hemsworth insider told Gossip Cop.

Still, she may not be walking down any aisles too soon, but Miley sounds on top of the world these days. She also Tweeted yesterday:

“Life is to short, stop compromising your happiness. Happiness is a right, a privilege that you deserve.”

We’re pretty sure rights and privileges are completely opposing concepts, but let’s not nit-pick. Keep smiling, Miles!

Kim Kardashian and Beyonce: Besties in Birmingham!



So much for that Kim Kardashian vs. Beyonce feud.

The wife of Jay-Z and the pretend girlfriend of Kanye West sat together Friday night at a Watch the Throne concert in Birmingham, England, smiling, laughing and dancing it up as their men performed on stage.

Kim and Beyonce

Kim and Beyonce were dancing all night! They even went into the mosh pit!” a witness recounts to Us Weekly. “It was the most hectic thing ever!”

Previous reports stated that Beyonce took issue with Kim dating Kanye, partly due to the difference in upbringings between Knowles and Kardashian and partly, we presume, because Beyonce has actually talent and earned her way to the top, as opposed to videotaping her way there.

But “Kim and Beyonce have always been cool,” a source says to the tabloid. “Beyonce and Jay love Kim and think she’s a good match for Kanye.”

Last night, meanwhile, Beyonce’s husband took to the stage in England alongside Rihanna. Watch their rendition of “Run This Town” below.

Karen Klein to School Bus Bully Kids: Apology NOT Accepted!



Karen Klein, the now famous school bus bullying victim, says she does NOT accept the apologies offered by two of the Greece, N.Y., kids whose taunts drove her to tears.

Klein, 68, has said she will not press charges or pursue any action against the terrible teenagers, claiming she feels sorry for them and their parents.

Accepting yesterday’s apologies from the bullies, however? Not happening.

Karen Klein Picture

Asked if she forgives the children who harassed her in light of the statements issued on Friday, she says, “Not really,” and simply adds “I think they can do better.”

Two of the devil children wrote the bus monitor letters after the video went viral this week and their 10-minute verbal torture session of the woman was exposed.

Klein also got a letter from the parents of a boy who participated. She and her daughter say they’re not ready to forgive, though, given what she went through.

Klein also has a few suggestions about how the kids should be punished, including bans from both riding the bus and sports at school for a year or more.

Considering what she endured, that could be considered lenient.

Watch the video that started it all after the jump …

The kids, whose names we are not posting here, have reportedly been the targets of death threats and harassment themselves since this broke.

Regarding the HUGE donations she’s received from sympathetic Internet users, Karen Klein is nearly speechless – a windfall of $550,000 will do that.

She plans to donate much of it right back into charities supporting both Down Syndrome and autism. There’s your silver lining to the above awfulness.
