No, Lindsay Lohan isn’t dating Tom Cruise, the actress’s rep tells MailOnline.
Somehow a rumor got started that Lohan and Cruise met up in London, OK! reports, and they were inseparable all night at the Chiltern Firehouse club earlier this month. The mag also reported that 28-year-old has always had a crush on the Mission Impossible star, 52, and that she was one of the names on Vanity Fair’s alleged list of women Cruise had “auditioned” to become his wife before settling on Katie Holmes.
IT’S SETTLED THEN
The lawyer for a man who was punched by Chris Brown outside a D.C. hotel says he has settled a lawsuit against the singer, the Washington Post reports. The amount is unclear. Brown pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault on Sept. 2. The singer admitted hitting Adams, who tried to get in a picture that the singer was taking with two women outside the W hotel in late 2013. Adams suffered a broken nose.
Never miss a local story.
As for Brown, his life doesn’t entirely revolve around lawsuits: He teamed up with local artist Ron Bass on a mural painted in Overtown on the wall of House of Wings. Brown is also scheduled to appear at Art Basel in December.
Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams have lost the first round in their battle with Marvin Gaye’s family in an ongoing debate over whether their 2013 megahit Blurred Lines infringed on Gaye’s 1977 song Got to Give It Up. U.S. District Court Judge John Kronstadt denied Thicke and William’s motion for a court ruling stating that Blurred Lines had not borrowed substantially from Gaye’s song, and the Gaye family’s lawsuit can proceed.
THE EYES HAVE IT
Reality TV star Tameka “Tiny” Harris, the wife of rapper T.I., has the attention of skeptical eye doctors and social media haters over a procedure she underwent to permanently lighten the color of her eyes.
The former member of the ’90s R&B group Xscape traveled to Africa for cosmetic eye implants that changed the color from brown to ice gray. “I looked in the mirror and I was, like, they’re amazing,” she said on Good Morning America on Thursday.
James Tsai, a clinical spokesman for the American Academy of Ophthalmology, told The Associated Press such cosmetic procedures are illegal in the United States. Risks can include glaucoma, cataracts, bleeding in the eyes and corneal problems.
There was a British invasion at the Beverly Hills Hilton hotel Thursday night, as BAFTA Los Angeles hosted its annual Britannia Awards, honoring film and television talent from both sides of the pond, including actors Dame Judi Dench, Emma Watson, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Robert Downey Jr.
Downey received the Stanley Kubrick Award for Excellence in Film, named after the legendary director of such films as 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Dench was honored with Albert R. (“Cubby”) Broccoli Award for Worldwide Contribution in Entertainment, named after one of the original producers of the James Bond films.
Noted Dench, “Well, I’m rather overwhelmed because I didn’t ever expect to have a film career at all.”
Sad but true. It didn’t take long for Amanda Bynes to start spiraling again. Fresh out of a psychiatric facility, the actress was spotted roaming around the Sunset Strip Thursday, talking to herself. She also railed against her “predator” father, among others, on Twitter. A few weeks ago, she tweeted that a microchip planted in her brain caused her to make the initial accusations against Rick Bynes, who has yet to comment on his troubled daughter’s allegations.
