Simon Cowell claimed he didn’t want kids because they take up too much time. Too late!

Rihanna has won a court case in Britain against retailer Topshop, which was selling T-shirts bearing her image without permission. High Court Justice Colin Birss ruled in favor of the singer, saying buyers were likely deceived by believing Rihanna had authorized its sale. Birss agreed that the sales caused a loss of control over Rihanna’s rep in the fashion realm; she has a clothing line in her name at a rival store.
Has it been 90 days already? Lindsay Lohan completes her court-ordered rehab Wednesday. The actress will transition into a sober living house on the property for a few days before guest hosting Chelsea Lately Monday. Then she’ll move in with dear old mom Dina in Long Island.

Lea Michele was photographed in public for the first time since the death of boyfriend Cory Monteith. The 26-year-old was spotted in the passenger seat of a car on Sunday in L.A. with sunglasses and wearing a “Cory” pendant necklace, reports The New York Daily News. It seems Glee cast members have been ordered to stay mum on the topic. Naya Rivera cut short an interview with The Miami Herald when her late costar was brought up. She did say production starts up again Monday.
Support for Leah
Director Paul Haggis congratulates Leah Remini for breaking free of Scientology in an open letter for The Hollywood Reporter.

Across the pond
The Charles Saatchi and Nigella Lawson marriage is no more. The Guardian reports a judge granted them a divorce Wednesday.
Jeremy Renner wants his dog back, no questions asked. Hemi, one of his two French bulldogs, went missing near his L.A. home. The actor launched a Facebook campaign, offering a $5,000 reward for the neutered male. Renner also set up a hotline, at 310-954-9126 (but don’t crank the poor guy).
