It sounds like the Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis split could get ugly! My source tells me that Vanessa is gunning for Johnny. She feels that she played a big part in his success and for years they shared everything. It’s only in recent months that they’ve lived separate lives. Vanessa hears about all these other women, and Johnny’s drinking and partying, and she can’t help wondering how long it’s been go¬ing on.
Career-wise, while he was becoming a major movie star, she took a seven-year break from recording albums. She feels that just because they never got mar¬ried doesn’t mean she shouldn’t have the same rights as a wife. She feels she deserves a hefty portion of that $350 million fortune.
Now speaking of Johnny, my source tells me that Johnny and Amber Heard are 100% dating! That means that Amber, who is a proud bisexual, has either left her girlfriend, Tasya van Ree, or they’re doing the open relationship thing. Amber and Tasya were just photographed in Los Angeles the other day looking very friendly, so if they broke up it was amicable. They started dating back in 2008.
Once upon a time Magic Mike star, Channing Tatum was a real life stripper! He was in his 20’s and he was looking to make ends meet and he decided to strip. Okay fine. Unfortunately he made some bad decisions as a stripper. For example, he once wore a clown suit on stage. He says a friend convinced him it would actually turn on the ladies. He hit the stage as Bozo and there were crickets in the audience. He says the women didn’t know it was supposed to be a joke or for real. No one cheered, nothing. Needless to say he retired the clown costume after that!
Channing also dressed up as a Boy Scout. He recalls his first night as a stripper, his sister and her friends showed up and he was mortified! His sister didn’t watch apparently, but all her friends sat in the front row. He realized at that point the Boy Scout routine didn’t work for him either. Ha! Magic Mike hits theatres worldwide today!
Kelly Clarkson may be getting married. I hear she’s expecting an engagement ring from her boyfriend, Brandon Blackstock by late summer and wants to be married by the end of the year. Kelly’s been eating well and exercising like crazy because she wants to look like a knock out in her wedding dress which she’s excited to start shopping for apparently!
Usher has obtained a temporary restraining order against a 26-year-old woman who is convinced that she is married to the superstar. Darshelle Jones Rakestraw showed up uninvited to Usher’s Georgia home. She pounded on his door and demanded to be let in. Cops were called. They told Darshelle to stay away from the property. Darshelle reportedly left and came back the next day. Cops were called once again. She told the cops that she was Usher's wife and misplaced her keys. Darshelle was under arrest. Darshelle has released a YouTube video, saying that Usher has been giving her money and promised to provide her a place to live. She also said that he promised to help her with a music career.
Nicki Minaj has given her two cents on the Drake vs. Chris Brown beef. In an interview with UK DJ Tim Westwood, Nicki said that Drake did nothing wrong. She explained, "Oh my God. You know, Young Money till the death of me. I don't approve of talented people doing things that aren't conducive to an amazing career. And so, you know, 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'. He did nothing wrong of course, rumors are rumors, but I told him to remember who you are." She said that instead of being in the clubs, "sometimes you just might need to go to bed, have an early nap, I do it all the damn time."
Nicki Minaj also gave her thoughts on how she feels about Hot 97 after the Summer Jam drama. She revealed that there are no hard feelings. She explained, "I feel like it happened and there is no animosity, I still love them over there at the station. They've helped me a lot as well. It's not like we're walking around being angry, we just wanted to prove that one point and that was that." On why she didn't chose to go on stage and diss Peter Rosenberg, who called her hit "Starships" bullsh*t, she said, "I don't want to do that, I want to let people know that I'm not even getting on your stage if you don't have your mind right. That's the point. See, if you get on the stage, you're saying next time you can do it again and we'll have this exchange." She added, "You have your opinions on radio and all that, but when an artist comes to perform you should just keep it to yourself, just for that one day."

Mark Wahlberg goes to bed by 9:00pm. When he was with the Funky Bunch things were different, but now, as a 41 year-old father 9pm is his bedtime. He says, quote, "You'd be amazed with what you can do once you stop drinking and going out at night . . . Today I was up at 4:30 A.M., played an hour and a half of basketball, then went upstairs. We got the kids out of bed, got them off to school and I was at church by 7:45 A.M. These days I'm in bed by 9:00 P.M. at the latest."
