Did Zac Efron get punched out in a bad part of town? Yes, according to TMZ.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that they’re investigating a fracas involving the That Awkward Moment star, who was parked under the Harbor Freeway in downtown Los Angeles with his bodyguard. Efron told the cops they had run out of gas and while they were waiting for a tow truck they threw a bottle out the window near some transients, who then confronted him.

One allegedly hit the actor in the mouth. One source told TMZ Efron was “obviously intoxicated,” the website reports

Efron, who was in rehab last year, broke his jaw last fall; he said he slipped on a pool of water in his home. No comment from the actor’s camp so far.

Who’s the guardian?

A guardianship hearing for Paul Walker’s teenage daughter has been postponed at the request of an attorney for the late actor’s mother.

Attorney Bela G. Lugosi said Thursday lawyers are trying to work out an agreement on who should care for 15-year-old Meadow Rain Walker. The Fast & Furious actor’s will calls for his mother to serve as her guardian, but Meadow Walker’s mother, Rebecca Jo Soteros, is still alive.

Lugosi says both sides hope to have an agreement before the next court hearing on April 30.

On vacation?

They’re splitting — but together. The day before announcing their separation, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin flew to the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas, People.com reports.

Wearing sunglasses, the couple kept a low profile.

“I just thought they were on vacation," an observer at the North Eleuthera airport told People. “They didn't seem happy or unhappy.”

Indicted

A security guard for Justin Bieber has been indicted on two felony charges after he admitted taking a camera from a photographer in suburban Atlanta.

Hugo Hesny was indicted earlier this week in Fulton County Superior Court. He faces charges of robbery and entering a vehicle.

Photographer Jason Winslow told police he was trying to shoot photos of Bieber outside an arcade in Sandy Springs on Feb. 25 when Hesny told him to leave. Winslow said Hesny chased him, cut him off, opened the door of Winslow’s vehicle and took his camera.

    Attack of Sharknado 2: Oh yeah, there’s another one

    The idea of making a movie about a tornado that scoops up thousands of sharks and sends them flying through the air to chomp their way through a bevy of people, places and things sounds totally ridiculous. That didn’t stop Syfy from moving ahead with Sharknado, a movie that became a pop culture phenomenon last year. The mania reached such a fevered level that a sequel, Sharknado 2: The Second One, was ordered. It premieres at 9 p.m. Wednesday on Syfy.
