Ashley Dupré Sues Joe Francis

Ashley Alexandra Dupré, the New Jersey woman at the center of the New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer call-girl scandal, filed suit Monday against Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis and his film company – claiming he exploited her name and image for profit.



The lawsuit seeks more than $10 million in damages. In legal documents, Dupré alleges that Girls Gone Wild representatives approached her while she was vacationing in Florida in 2003, offered her alcohol and cajoled her into exposing her breasts for their cameras when she was just 17 (and not of proper legal age to sign a release form allowing her to be filmed).

Since then, the suit claims, Girls Gone Wild has illegally exploited Dupré's name, picture, voice and likeness in a number of deceptive ad campaigns and on Web sites.

Francis said he was "surprised and in fact amazed" by the lawsuit, noting he has not released new video of Dupré "due to corporate policy of not using footage of individuals younger than 18" and …

Meanwhile, before the premiere, Carey played it coy, saying she only has eyes for one male: Jack, her Jack Russell terrier.

"I'm in love with my dog," said the singer, 39. "He is my special someone. I love spending time with him."

The soul diva, 24, spent the night in the city’s Holborn police station after voluntarily arriving for questioning at around 5 p.m. Friday.

Cameron Diaz's Family Pays Tribute to Her Father

"Cameron Diaz's" family remembered her father Emilio for his humor and honesty, and said they're coping with his April 15 death with the help of "an amazing outpouring of love."



"His love for laughter was undeniable and he embraced life head-on in such a dynamic way that he was impossible to forget," the family said in an exclusive statement to people.

Ashlee Simpson Dodges Pregnancy Questions – Again

Ashlee Simpson is keeping coy when it comes to those persistent pregnancy rumors.



The 23-year-old singer – who's newly engaged to Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz – tried her best to avoid answering the million-dollar question during her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. (The episode is set to air Thursday.)

When asked directly, "Are you or are you not pregnant?" Simpson demurred: "Well, that has been going on for quite a while. That is something that I choose personally not to discuss."

She then skillfully changed the subject. "Do I look like I had 10 cheeseburgers or something?" she asked the audience, standing up to show her still-slim figure. "Because I don't think I do."

The dogged DeGeneres then asked Simpson to promise that if she is pregnant, she doesn't keep fans in suspense as long as "Jennifer Lopez" did.

"I swear," Simpson responded. "I promise you that. I give you my pinky on that." (The two t…

Beyoncé and Jay-Z may not be talking about their wedding, but her bling certainly seems to be.



Beyoncé happily flashed a whopping hunk of diamond on her left-hand ring finger Tuesday night

at her new husband’s concert with Mary J. Blige at Atlanta’s Phillips Arena.

Wearing a short black dress and big hoop earrings, the newlywed singer sat in a VIP area with buddy Usher. The two leapt to their feet to groove hard when Jay-Z launched into his hit “PSA,” with its lyrics, “I got the hottest chick in the game wearing my chain.”

Usher threw up the diamond Roc sign, while Beyoncé showed off a telltale diamond rock of her own and waved her arms to the beat.

During the show, Beyoncé also relaxed backstage on a plush red couch, sporting shades and singing along to Blige’s songs as Jay-Z made last-minute costume changes.

On Monday night, Jay-Z celebrated without his wife – or a wedding ring – at his 40/40 club in Manhattan, where he cheered for Memphis during the NCAA men’s basketball championship gam…

Heath May Have Fathered a Love Child

One of Heath Ledger's estranged uncles claims that the late actor may have fathered a love child when he was a teenager, according to a report in Sydney's Daily Telegraph.



When he was just 17 years old, Ledger reportedly dated a 25-year-old woman – who discovered she was pregnant after the relationship ended and later gave birth to baby girl.
