50 Cent denies wrongdoing


Rapper 50 Cent denies allegations he attacked his ex-girlfriend and trashed her Los Angeles condo.

The In da Club singer’s lawyer says there’s no warrant outstanding on the domestic violence and vandalism charges against 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson. If convicted, he faces up to five years in prison and $46,000 in fines. The woman told police that during a June 23 argument, Jackson began destroying property before she locked herself in a bedroom. She says Jackson kicked open the bedroom door and kicked her, causing injury. Police estimated about $7,100 in damage. The woman told police she had been in a three-year relationship and has a baby with Jackson. His arraignment is July 22.

On his way

Britain’s defense ministry says Prince Harry has qualified to command an Apache attack helicopter — the culmination of three years of training. Harry, known in the army as Capt. Wales, earlier this year completed a 20-week deployment in Afghanistan as a copilot gunner on an Apache and since then has flown missions in Britain. Harry underwent months of training to prepare for the test, which involved a “grueling” six-hour flying assessment that took him all over the United Kingdom and required him to perform a variety of tasks, including simulating a low-level attack.

Perfect match

Start getting used to seeing more of Eva Longoria around these parts. She has a local novio. Yup, Longoria couldn’t deny that she was dating Ernesto Arguello any longer. He’s younger (34) and was a contestant on her ill-fated producing effort, Ready for Love.

The actress, 38, confirmed to People that she was in love and Tweeted out that she “couldn’t be happier.”

Back in April, before the NBC show was yanked, Arguello talked up the former Desperate Housewives star to the Miami Herald: “She was a sweetheart. We confided in her, and she’d confide in us about her relationships.” Arguello, a philanthropist and entrepreneur, owns a guesthouse on Lenox Avenue, called Stay With Me At Lincoln.

More couples

Summer lovin’ for Derek Jeter. The manly Yankee shortstop, 38, is reportedly dating (big surprise) a Sports Illustrated model. Her name is Hannah Davis; she’s just 23, and grew up in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Seth Meyers is getting serious — about his girlfriend, lawyer Alexi Ashe. Us Weekly reports he popped the question and she said yes. Meyers just completed his final full season of Saturday Night Live and is preparing to take over Late Night from Jimmy Fallon, who is replacing Jay Leno.

If you see The Donald, congratulate him. His daughter, Ivanka, hasn’t given birth yet, but his son/ Apprentice co-host Eric Trump, 29, is engaged. The bride-to-be is Eric’s longtime girlfriend, Lara Yunaska, 30, it was confirmed in a tweet from the Eric Trump Foundation. According to LinkedIn, Yunaska is a story coordinator at Inside Edition and lives in New York.
