Sandra Bullock is helping Katie Holmes through her split. My source tells me that Katie has been secretly reaching out to friends for support including Sandra Bullock. Sandra knows a few things about being in a bad marriage and coming out on top, so Katie has found a great deal of comfort in talking to her.
Apparently Tom Cruise is totally freaked out because he no longer has control over Katie. His team is reportedly working around the clock to protect his faith. One of Tom’s top priorities right now is to convince people that Scientology has nothing to do with their divorce!
One of my sources told me over the weekend that Katie has been wanting to get out of her marriage with Tom for almost two years. She tried to talk to Tom about her concerns and he just wouldn’t listen. She started sharing with her parents how controlling and weird Scientology is, and her dad decided he was going to help her.
Meanwhile one of Tom’s former mentor’s Eileen Berlin is speaking about Tom saying he used to do some weird things while they hung out. For example she says Tom used to walk around her house in a little G-string and nothing else. He would stand in front of mirrors and flex his biceps and admire himself. She says she was a bit embarrassed by it, but he had great pride in his body.
According to a new book called "Mick: The Wild Life and Mad Genius of Jagger", Mick used to bombard Angelina Jolie with calls begging for a little action, but she never gave in, and it drove him insane. It all began in 1997, when Angelina played a stripper in the Rolling Stones video "Anybody Seen My Baby?" At the time Angelina was married to Jonny Lee Miller and seeing Timothy Hutton on the side. Just the same, that didn’t stop her mom Marcheline Bertrand from reportedly encouraging her to give Mick a try. Mick allegedly admitted at the time that Angelina scared him a little, because she was into hard drugs, S&M and cutting. But it also attracted him to her. Mick pursued Angelina for the next several years, leaving desperate messages for her. My source says Mick was, quote, "virtually sobbing" on the phone, while Angelina seemed to enjoy, "messing with his head."
Katy Perry swears she is not looking for man. She says, and I quote, "For me, right now, I'm totally not looking. I'm just looking to heal. And I'm on that path. I'm not down on love." So, you ask, what about Robert Ackroyd from Florence + The Machine? According to Katy, it’s nothing. She says, quote, "That's not even appropriate to label. There are times I go out and meet people and flirt, but it's not really appropriate to have anything serious."
According to my source Kim Kardashian bought a $5,000 diamond-studded baby bracelet for Beyonce’s daughter, Blue Ivy. Not only that, but she had it engraved with the words, “Love Auntie Kim.” They’ve been friend for 5 minutes, is this an appropriate gift? My source says it freaked Beyonce out a little bit. Kim has grown on her, and she was moved by the lavish gesture, but at the same time she’s a little skeptical… It felt over the top considering they’ve known each other for such a short time.
Justin Bieber got stopped for doing more than 100 miles per hour on Friday (which is more than 160 kilometres per hour) on the 101 Freeway in San Fernando, California. Ten people who saw Justin speeding in his Fisker Karma sports car, called 911. Dennis Zine, a Los Angeles city councilman and former L.A. cop, was one of the 10. He said, quote, "It was a very dangerous, chaotic situation… When he passed me, he was driving in a careless, reckless fashion." Justin told police he was being chased by paparazzi. Dennis backed that up saying he saw paparazzi driving the same way. Later in the day, Justin filed a complaint with police against one of the drivers who had been chasing him. Cops visited him on the set of a video shoot to take his statement. As luck would have it, the guy driving that other car was there trying to get pictures of Justin. So cops took a statement from him, too.
Noooooooooo! My source tells me Johnny Depp’s ex, Vanessa Paradis is spending time with my man, Lenny Kravitz. Before Vanessa met Johnny, Lenny was the love of her life (… So I’m told). Their romance didn’t last long, but they remained close friends over the years and she didn’t hesitate to call him when things went South with Johnny. I guess she knew Lenny would be there for her, and he told Vanessa to reach out to him whenever she felt low. Vanessa usually calls Lenny in tears, but by the time they hang up an hour or two later, she’s in much better spirits and even laughing.
WEB EXCLUSIVE BONUS SCOOP!
George Clooney and Stacy Keibler got food poisoning in Italy last week. On Thursday, Stacy Tweeted, quote, "Finally had a bad meal in Italy. Our whole dinner party got food poisoning. #ohwell at least I'm still in Italy." At least she knows how fortunate she is!
