Lindsay Lohan has denied very specific and detailed reports that she and Avril Lavigne had a screaming fight in front of fellow guests at Hollywood's Chateau Marmont club and Lohan tried but failed to get Lavigne thrown out. The New York Post quotes an eyewitness as saying, "Avril was at a table with friends just over a week ago including her boyfriend, Brody Jenner, when Lindsay came over to say hi. But as soon as she approached, Avril launched at her and said: 'Get the hell out of my face, you are fake, you are a loser. I don't like false people. Stay away from me and my friends.' " The witness says Lavigne was angry because LiLo, left, had snubbed her at an earlier reception and only came over to say hello when Lavigne was sitting with people Lindsay wanted to impress. According to the witness, "Lindsay was furious and screamed back: 'Don't threaten me!' She then stormed off to security and tried to get them to kick Avril out. They refused to force Avril to leave. Lindsay eventually stormed off."
Meanwhile, Lohan's people have reportedly asked the high-powered manager who resurrected Britney Spears' career to help her get work again. Larry Rudolph has given some advice to Lindsay and her people, but is not "fully committed" to helping her, TMZ reports, until he believes Lindsay will agree to do everything she can to help herself. "He's not 100% in yet," one source said. But another said, "If Rudolph feels Lindsay is ready, he's onboard."
Last week, Elisabeth Hasselbeck said she called and apologized to ESPN sportscaster Erin Andrews after criticizing her skimpy costumes on "Dancing With the Stars," but Andrews says it didn't happen. In an interview with Us magazine after Monday night's "Dancing," Andrews said, "I didn't speak with her, no. I never talked to her." In a tearful apology on "The View," after saying that Andrews' stalker could have just waited until she was on "Dancing" if he wanted to see her body, Hasselbeck said she called Andrews to apologize after her 5-year-old daughter, Grace, advised her to do it. "Thankfully, I listened to her … and I did," she said on the air. But Andrews, who was the target of a stalker who filmed her in her hotel room and posted the video on the Internet, isn't sitting by the phone to take Hasselbeck's call. She says she's "dealt with" Hasselbeck's remarks. "I'm moving on," she said. "I'm tired of talking about it. It's a new week."
Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus had dinner together in a trendy West Hollywood sushi bar to discuss "a side project," Cyrus told paparazzi waiting outside. They were accompanied by bodyguards but her beau, "Last Song" co-star Liam Hemsworth, was absent. But their comments have made it clear there's no spark between Cyrus, 17, and Bieber, 16. He has said Cyrus is "not my type." Last March, she said, "Bieber fever... I'm not necessarily a fan. I don't listen to that kind of music. But my little sister (Noah, then 10) was obsessed with him, and he actually gave her a shout-out on Twitter and I thought that was really sweet."
In court Monday, "Pretty Wild" reality star Alexis Neiers admitted burglarizing Orlando Bloom's house in 2009, but now she says, "I didn't do anything wrong." Neiers, 18, said, "I thought we were going to trial and we had a great shot at this. I had been so confident because I had thought up until this point that I didn't do anything wrong." In Monday's plea bargain, she pleaded "no contest" to the felony charge in return for a six-month jail term and three years probation. Neiers was seen on surveillance video entering Bloom's Hollywood Hills home last July with three other people, but she has said she was drunk at the time and was unaware that the group was breking in. More than a half-million dollars worth of watches and other jewelry and artwork was taken from the home. The Bloom break-in was one of many that targeted celebrities last year and resulted in the theft of more than $3 million worth of valuables from the vacant homes of Audrina Patridge, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan.
Lil Wayne was in big trouble after Rikers Island guards found a pair of earbuds and a charger for a watch that plays mp3s during a search of his call. Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Carter Jr., is serving a year on a gun possession charge after a semi-automatic pistol was found on his tour bus. Wayne will be charged with an infraction for being in possession of "music contraband," according to the New York Daily News. Officials found the mp3 player in another inmate's cell. Earlier this month, Diddy dropped in to visit Wayne, chatting for an hour. The music mogul took the public bus to the prison, just like everybody else.
