Tim McGraw and Faith Hill may have had too much couples’ time during their Soul2Soul concert residency at The Venetian in Vegas. Star magazine is reporting McGraw is feeling smothered by his wife of 17 years. “Faith has done everything she can to totally take over just about every aspect of Tim’s life,” a source tells the tabloid. “She’s isolated him from his closest friends, alienated his longtime fans and taken charge of all their money.” Reps for the couple deny the story.

Pieces of John

Whimsical drawings, poems and short stories from two humorous books by John Lennon fetched skyrocketing prices at auction Wednesday, including $209,000 for a parody of Sherlock Holmes. The manuscript, The Singularge Experience of Miss Anne Duffield, was the top lot in the sale. The material was created for the two books Lennon published during the height of Beatlemania. The collection belonged to Lennon’s publisher.

Love happens

A new chapter for LaToya Jackson. The 58-year-old singer is planning a wedding to her business partner, 46-year-old Jeffré Phillips. He put a big, 17.5 carat ring on her finger about a year ago while on vacation in Hawaii. “It’s very, very big. It’s a heavy one too,” Jackson told Good Morning America, adding they are thinking of adopting.

3’s not a crowd

Kourtney Kardashian may have beaten Kim to the punch. UsWeekly reports the reality star and partner Scott Disick are expecting again. The couple are parents to Mason, 4, and Penelope, 23 months. A source told the mag: “It was planned. Kourtney wants to have a handful of kids.”

Tea for two

Yep, they’re dating, or very affectionate friends. The Daily Mail published a picture of Cameron Diaz, 41, and rocker Benji Madden, 35, stepping out in NYC on a beverage run, holding hands. The actress’ last serious relationship was Alex Rodriguez.

Eat and run

How embarrassing and upstanding at the same time. Charlize Theron went into a Pinkberry frozen yogurt shop in Los Angeles Wednesday and after getting her cup revealed she didn’t have money with her because she was just at a park with no purse. The server called TMZ to tell them about the incident. But Theron, who is among the highest earners in Hollywood, eventually came back (with bf Sean Penn waiting outside in a car) and handed over a $100 bill on the $3.75 tab.
