Did Miley Cyrus out her father’s affair?

 

So there may have been another woman to blame for breaking up Billy Ray Cyrus’ marriage. In a cryptic, since deleted Tweet to her dad, Miley Cyrus posted a picture of her with an attractive female with the partial caption: “I’m giving you an hour to tell the truth or I’ll tell it for you.” Miley has been taking refuge in Miami, attending Pharrell’s birthday party at LIV, and is rumored to be attending Mackpalooza, an all-day pool party Friday at the Clevelander.

Episode II

Here’s hoping there are no intergalactic battles: Star Wars creator George Lucas married longtime girlfriend Mellody Hobson in a weekend ceremony at Skywalker Ranch, in California. It’s the second marriage for Lucas, and the first for Hobson, an investment firm president/analyst for CBS News. Former U.S. Sen. Bill Bradley walked her down the aisle; the ceremony was performed by Bill Moyers, once a Baptist minister. Guests included Steven Spielberg and Ron Howard.

Back on

Katy Perry wasn’t kidding when she told Vogue she was madly in love with John Mayer. The singers were spotted holding hands at the Waldorf Astoria in NYC Monday night to help the Friars Foundation honor Don Rickles, 87, with a Lifetime Achievement Award for Comedy.

Speaking out

Halle Berry was scheduled to testify on Tuesday in favor of California legislation that would limit the ability of paparazzi to photograph the children of celebrities. The pregnant actress read a statement before the hearing, saying she understands she must give up some privacy but felt she had to do something to allow her child to move around freely and safely.

Hit & run

The LA city attorney’s office has charged Chris Brown with misdemeanor hit-and-run and driving without a valid license involving a minor accident last month in the San Fernando Valley. If convicted, Brown would face up to a year in jail.

Not guilty

Don’t begrudge Kate Gosselin for a photo that wasn’t supposed to be public. In an image leaked to media, she is wearing what appears to be a traditional Japanese headpiece, and slanting her eyes with her fingers. On her official website Gosselin explained ex husband Jon (a Korean-American) were goofing around some years ago as they opened fan mail; a letter included the headpiece. “I married an Asian. I have eight biracial children therefore I’m quite certain that I’m the last person that could be called a racist.”

    Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley no longer speak: Is it because of Scientology?

    Que paso? Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley used to be so close. They met as partners on Dancing with the Stars and stayed in touch but these days they no longer speak. “She stopped getting along with me,” Chmerkovskiy told Andy Cohen on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live. “I got a message now that I am associating with other people that she can't be associated with, I am no longer to be spoken with, and sorry, but it is what it is.” Jennifer Lopez, rumored to be dating the dancer, is besties with Leah Remini, who recently left the Church of Scientology, and that perhaps doesn’t sit well with Alley, who remains loyal to Tom Cruise’s church.
