Joe Jonas parties at Baoli (with friends, not brothers)


After shooting down rumors that he was addicted to heroin, Joe Jonas, of the recently broken up Jonas Brothers, was seen partying with six friends at an early, Black Swan-themed Halloween party Wednesday night at Baoli. Says our spy, “He was wearing a small black mask and was looking very healthy.” The group had a bottle of Absolut Elyx and Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque. Earlier that morning, Jonas joined his brothers on Good Morning America to explain that their break up was over a creative rift.

Jonas was not with model girlfriend Blanda Eggenschwiler, with whom he’s been seen a lot lately.

Model Adriana Lima stopped by the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show to check out the luxury boats and ended up falling in love. Lima was seen hanging out and taking photos with fans on a Zeelander 44 yacht, an almost million-dollar handcrafted boat. After the brief rendezvous, Zeelander’s executives, John Slate and Sietse Koopmans, offered Lima an invitation to a special dinner for yacht owners, which she happily accepted. After a hearty meal of steaks and, of course, salad, Lima proclaimed her love for the company — by purchasing a Zeelander 44.
