TMZ: Justin Bieber being urged to go to rehab


Will Justin Bieber go to rehab to save his career and/or rep? That may be the only way out of the mess the 19-year-old pop prince has dug for himself. Insiders tell TMZ that he likes to party with Sizzurp, aka promethazine (used medically to treat allergies) with codeine cough syrup. Street value runs around $800 a pint, according to the gossip site. You can either get it with a prescription or outside the U.S., like the Baby singer’s homeland of Canada. Bieber’s people are reportedly urging him to go to rehab to tackle his drug problem. Maybe he can stay at the same place where Dennis Rodman is laying his head and save the paparazzi the travel time.

What’s in a name?

Regrets? Bill Murray has at least one. The comedian turn actor said in a Reddit chat with fans that he took the voice part in 2004’s Garfield: The Movie, because he mistakenly thought it was written by film great Joel Coen, not Joel Cohen ( Cheaper by the Dozen). Oopsie.

On the list

While promoting his new position as Tonight Show host at the Television Critics Assn. press tour in Pasadena, Jimmy Fallon revealed the first guests of his Feb. 17 debut: the always gregarious Will Smith and musical guest, U2. On the flip side, Jay Leno will once more wrap his run as late-night king pin on Feb. 6 with first-ever guest Billy Crystal, along with Garth Brooks.

French rendezvous

It will be tough to talk his way out of it to wife Paula Patton this time. Robin Thicke was snapped with his face pressed up against another attractive female’s at a nightclub in Paris, where the singer is promoting his clothing line, RadarOnline reports. The two didn’t kiss, but the picture would be nice fodder for any divorce lawyer.

Behind the scenes

Along with her soon-to-end daytime talk show, fall engagement and gig as Yahoo’s global anchor, Katie Couric also made a documentary, Fed Up, shown at the Sundance Film Festival. Couric linked up with An Inconvenient Truth producer Laurie David ( Larry David’s ex) to make the film, which explores the epidemic of childhood obesity.
