The Church of Scientology may target Robert Pattinson. More source says they prey on people who are feeling weak, and Rob certainly is these days. The church believes that everyone has a situation they can help them with, and since Rob is going through a bad breakup, it would be perfect timing for them to step in and ‘help.’ We’ll see… he doesn’t seem like the Scientology type to me.
Despite the tough times he’s going through, Rob knows the show must go on. Yesterday his rep confirmed that he will be doing promo for his movie Cosmopolis which comes out on the 13th. As far as promo for Twilight goes, neither Robert nor Kristen want to think about that right now. Regarding the rest of the Twilight cast… It seems pretty obvious that they are all on Team Rob. Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed and Kellan Lutz are rallying around Rob. They can’t believe what Kristen did to him.
Last week I reported that Jennifer Lopez’s boyfriend, Casper was spotted coming out of a New York City Sex Shop. Well apparently he was there for more than a few toys for J-Lo. My source tells me Casper has been known to enter that particular sex shop and others like it to check out their peep shows in the back. And he’s not peeping on girls… Nope, he goes for the guy peep shows. There are also rumours going around that he’s a regular at the exotic massage parlor upstairs from the peep show. Now J-Lo and Casper’s rep was quick to jump on this saying, quote, "Casper is not gay. These comments are born from envy and jealousy." Attorneys for the couple are also threatening to sue. They said, quote, "These statements are false, malicious and defamatory. Ms. Lopez and Mr. Smart will pursue all remedies available to them under the law."
NBA player LeBron James is playing on Team USA in the London Olympics and apparently he has picked some favourites in Olympic sports outside of basketball. LeBron and several other members of the Men's Basketball team went on a tour of the Olympic Village this week. (The basketball team isn't staying in the Village with the other athletes.) While he was there, he started talking to Lauren Perdue, a 21-year-old swimmer from the University of Virginia who won a gold medal with the 200-meter Freestyle relay team. Now supposedly LeBron invited her to eat with him at the dining hall. LeBron is engaged, and Lauren said he wasn't looking for anything other than a companion in the cafeteria, and that he was, quote, "kind of joking." Either way, she sent him on his way. She said, quote, "I told him, 'Um, I'm sorry. I have a curfew.'" Then Lauren went and talked about it on Twitter. She tweeted, quote, "LeBron James just invited me to dinner . . . Um wuuutttt?!?"
This probably won’t surprise you… Snooki wants to give birth in heels. She says, quote, "I'm packing heels, my leopard-print gown, eyelashes and makeup! I wanna look good when [my baby] first sees me."
Jermaine Jackson wants unity in the Jackson family. Yesterday he officially dropped his signature from the letter seeking to have the executors of Michael Jackson’s estate removed. Jermaine said, quote, "Mistakes have been made and irrational things have been said on both sides in a highly charged emotional environment. It is time for us all to draw a line in the sand and move towards peace, co-operation, love and healing." He also said that, quote, "mutual suspicions had allowed events to spiral out of control" and added that he regrets, quote, "any distress caused to Prince, Paris and Blanket." Finally he said, quote, "After much soul-searching, it is clearly time for us to live by Michael's words about love not war."
Child star Macaulay Culkin may be hooked on Heroin. He looks absolutely horrible, like a skeleton with skin. My source says he spends $6,000 a month on drugs. Apparently he’s been hooked for about a year and a half. He’s surrounding himself with druggies and lowlifes, he’s in a really bad place. His closest friends fear that he'll overdose or his heart will explode. Macaulay’s reps are denying the rumours saying, quote, "[This report is] not only categorically without merit, but it is also impossibly and ridiculously fictitious. We beseech the responsible media to consider the source and its reputation and to please not perpetuate this destructive and insulting story by pursuing it any further."
WEB EXCLUSIVE BONUS SCOOP!
Apparently Jon Gosselin has to pay so much in child support to his ex-wife Kate for their eight kids that he can't afford rent. He says, quote, "I am a single father who's trying to make ends meet during a recession. What do I do pay child support or rent? I need to support my kids, but I could lose my house, and I need my home to continue to have custody. I decided to take the high road and quit reality television and now look, I'm going to end up in jail because I can't afford to pay child support to Kate who has plenty of money."
