Britney Spears Doesn't Want Sam Lutfi In Her Life

Britney Spears's restraining order against one-time pal Sam Lutfi may have been temporary, but their friendship is permanently over.



The pop star's court-appointed attorney, Samuel D. Ingham III, told the Associated Press that he will not seek to extend the restraining order in court on Thursday – because Spears has cut all ties with Lutfi anyway.

"Britney has made clear to everyone," Ingham said, "that she does not want to be further harassed or contacted in any way by Osama 'Sam' Lutfi, now or at anytime in the future."

Lutfi has been out of Spears's life since February, when her father, Jamie, was granted legal control of her affairs as temporary conservator. (At the time, Britney's mother, Lynne, accused Lutfi of drugging the singer.)

According to Ingham, the restraining order is no longer necessary because Jamie can legally control whom Britney, 26, sees: "During the temporary conservatorship, the conservators have the power to ins…

Rebecca Romijn & Jerry O'Connell Are Expecting Twins

Rebecca Romijn and her husband, Jerry O'Connell, are expecting twins, their rep confirms to people.



The babies are due this winter. A source tells people that both babies will be girls. The twins were conceived without the help of in vitro fertilization or the fertility drug Clomid, a source close to the couple also says.

The parents-to-be were married July 15, 2007, in an intimate ceremony in Los Angeles. He had proposed to her during a September 2005 trip to New York, a full year after they were first spotted together in L.A., taking in an Al Green concert and checking out a local deli.

Ugly Betty's Romijn, 35, recently told Self magazine she hoped to be "lucky enough" to have kids.

And just a little more than a week ago, O'Connell, 34, told people, "We're trying to get pregnant."

"It would be amazing if it happened," he said, adding that practicing has been "a lot of fun."

Miley Cyrus Describes Her Dream Man

Tall, dark, likes Coldplay and plays the guitar: If these descriptors apply to you and you're 17 or younger, Miley Cyrus may want to date you.

In an interview with Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show, the 15-year-old Hannah Montana star admits she would ideally date a "16-year-old Chris Martin," but that her mother never approves of her boyfriends.

"She doesn't like my taste in guys," Cyrus says. "She says I have terrible taste."

Cyrus also addresses the alleged feud with fellow tween-queen Selena Gomez. Months ago, Cyrus and BFF Mandy Jiroux, 20, put up a YouTube video in which they dress up as and mock Gomez, 16, and Gomez's friend Demi Lovato.

"We just thought it was funny," Cyrus tells Seacrest. "I felt bad, we didn't mean to hurt anyone's feelings. We didn't mean for it to be hurtful."

Cyrus has previously apologized for the video, though she says she hasn't spoken with Gomez about it. In an interview wi…

Brandy And Daughter Skechers’ AD

Singer Brandy and her 6-year-old daughter Sy’rai have teamed up with Sneaker brand Skechers for the ‘Nothing Compares to Family’ ad campaign. The ad campaign,which features other celebrity families, is slated to run in 2009:

The SKECHERS USA, Inc. “Nothing Compares to Family” promotion, slated to run through 2009, stars some of today’s popular celebrity families and benefits children’s charities with ads breaking in celebrity weekly magazines and other fashion and lifestyle glossies.

SKECHERS plans to rotate a variety of different celebrity families throughout the campaign, featuring mothers and small children and adult celebrities with their sisters, brothers, parents and grandparents. At the heart of the campaign is Skechers’ commitment to family.

Each ad will be tagged with a charity of the celebrity’s choice, ones that are family-related, such as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International or Habitat for Humanity, which builds homes for families.

Katie Price reveals: 'I don't write my best-selling novels'

It's a remarkable career move by anyone's standards: from lad's mag's favourite to best-selling author.

And Katie Price's foray into literature has been so successful that she has even beaten off competition from leading writers.

But just when it seemed that there was no end to the model's extraordinary talents, she has admitted enlisting more than a little help.



Of course I didn't write it': Katie Price, pictured at the book launch of her third novel Angel Uncovered last week, made a frank admission about her writing skills

Far from writing her own novels, Miss Price - better known as Jordan - instead reveals she merely thinks up the plot - leaving the complex task of conjuring up the golden prose to an assistant.

"I'm not going to lie, I don't sit there with a typewriter and write it, of course I don't," she said.

"I don't have time to do that. I say how I want the storyline to be, each chapter is done, I read through it …

Is tight-shorted Ronaldo turning into a Wham! boy?

Cristiano Ronaldo has spent weeks working on his tan - and he couldn't be more eager to show if off.

The Manchester United star put his bronzed pins on display in a pair of tiny metallic shorts - his look reminiscent of George Michael in his Wham! heyday.



Wham bam: Cristiano Ronaldo, in LA yesterday, appears to be taking style cues from George Michael circa 1984

The 23-year-old, who was on a shopping spree at Ed Hardy, completed his flashy 80s ensemble with shiny white runners and a pink tee.

It was a rare afternoon outing for Ronaldo, who has spent most days in LA firmly fixed on the sun lounge at his luxury hotel and most nights at popular celebrity haunt Villa.



Out and about: Ronaldo left his sun lounge for a shopping spree at Ed Hardy

Ronaldo has been on the prowl for female companions during his holiday following his split from Spanish model Nereida Gallardo at the beginning of this month.

He has been linked to a string of women, including one brunette who accompanied him back to h…

Kelly Rowland Says Destiny’s Child May Reunite Next Year

The trio split up in 2005, with Rowland, Michelle Williams and Beyonce Knowles all going on to forge successful solo careers. However Rowland is convinced that the group will reunite within the next 12 months - as she misses working with her former band mates.



She says, “Me and the girls never split up - we are as close as we always were, like sisters, and we may do some projects next year.”

Court Nixes Fine for Janet’s Super Bowl Boob Job

And let’s hope this is the last we hear of a certain wardrobe malfunction.



The long-running legal saga involving the escape of Janet Jackson’s right breast during the halftime show of the 2004 Super Bowl has apparently come to an end as a federal appeals court today tossed out the $550,000 indecency fine against CBS Corp.

In its ruling, the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the Federal Communications Commission “acted arbitrarily and capriciously” when it issued the pricey penalty against the network for the boob slippage.

For those who’ve enjoyed the underside of their rock for the past four years, the brouhaha began when 90 million viewer were treated to a glance of the “Nasty” singer’s goods during a duet with Justin Timberlake.

While crooning, “Gonna have you naked by the end of this song,” Timberlake yanked off Jackson’s bustier, revealing her strategically placed nipple shield in what became a made-for-TiVo moment.

The move upset several conservative watchdogs, including the pow…

New mum Halle Berry flashes her flat tummy after losing her baby weight the healthy way

It may have taken her several months longer than other new Hollywood mothers, but Halle Berry has regained her svelte figure five months after giving birth to daughter Nahla.

The Oscar-winning actress wisely refused to bow down to media pressure and shed her baby weight through crash dieting, over-exercising or surgery and instead lost the extra pounds the healthy way.

Stepping out for a shopping trip in Los Angeles on Friday with a family member, the 41-year-old's flat stomach was unwittingly exposed to the pursuing paparazzi when a gust of wind blew open her cotton vest top.


Bye bye baby bump: Halle Berry has slowly and healthily lost her post-baby weight

Dressed for the hot summer day, Halle looked relaxed in oatmeal trousers, light vest top and cowboy hat.

As Halle picked up a few items from Beverly Hills and the Westfield Mall in Century City, no doubt her model partner Gabriel Aubry was at home looking after the baby.

The Oscar-winning actress wisely refused to bow down to media p…

Madonna’s troubles are swept under the red carpet

They stepped out in New York last week in an unconvincing show of togetherness.


Staged? Madonna and husband Guy Ritchie put on a show of togetherness at the screening of 'I Am Beacuse We Are' at the 61st Cannes International Film Festival in May

Now Madonna and Guy Ritchie are planning another staged show of unity this side of the pond, I can report.

The 49-year-old singer, who has publicly denied that her seven-year marriage is on the rocks, has agreed to support her husband on the red carpet at the London premiere of his film RocknRolla.

And she plans to be with Guy for his 40th birthday on September 10.

Friends last night insisted the arrangement is little more than a publicity stunt and say the couple, who have already divided up some of their assets, are still on the rocks.

But Madonna, who is currently based in America, which she wants to make her permanent home, has agreed to return to London in September for the film launch.

She will also be at Guy’s 40th, expected to be an I…

From hideous to ridiculous, Jodie Marsh tops her wardrobe shocker TWICE in one day

We didn't think Jodie Marsh could top the shocking silver and black spandex outfit she bulged out of at Thursday's Big Brother party.


What do you call that?! Jodie Marsh turns heads as she struts her stuff outside Valbone studio in a tiny gold garment and killer silver heels

But she's done it twice the very next day.

To say the glamour model left little to the imagination as she left the Valbone studio with her boyfriend in the early hours would be an understatement.

The 29-year-old bared virtually all in a gold holter neck item that thankfully clung tightly around her hips to shield her remaining modesty.



And oops, she did it again in the morning.

The Essex-born girl dressed up in a pair of shiny gold skin-tight leggings, black knee-high boots and The Clash vest for a casual walk in Camden Town.

She clearly enjoyed the attention of some local builders, who wanted to be pictured with her as she strutted down the street, fully made-up.

Angelina Leaves Hospital with Newborn Twins

Angelina Jolie and her twins left the hospital early Saturday – a week since she gave birth to Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline.



"Angelina Jolie left the Clinic Santa Maria of Fondation Lenval early in the morning of July 19th," hospital rep Nadine Bauer confirmed to people. "The mother and babies are doing very well."

There were only a few journalists camped outside the Fondation Lenval hospital in Nice, France, early Saturday morning but even they didn't know for sure when Jolie slipped out of the hospital with her twins at 4 a.m. local time.

Jolie and the newest Jolie-Pitts left Lenval to join their excited siblings – Maddox, 6; Pax, 4; Zahara, 3; and Shiloh, 2 – at Chateau Miraval, the enormous and luxurious chateau in Correns, France, that Jolie and partner Brad Pitt rented in May.

"We saw the cars and we thought it was her but we didn't see anything," one observer said.

Photographers had been stationed on nearby roofs of the hospital, hoping tha…

Britney to Pay K-Fed $20,000 in Child Support

Britney Spears's custody settlement with her ex Kevin Federline, in which he retained sole custody of the couple's two sons, came at a price.

A source close to the singer confirms she'll now pay Federline $20,000 a month in child support, an increase from $15,000.

Federline's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, also demanded and received $250,000 for his work on the case, the source adds.

"All Britney was seeking was a formalization of her increased visitation that she's obtained over recent weeks, and the additional overnight," the source said. "She won both of those requests."

Spears, who is represented by lawyer Laura Wasser, currently sees her sons twice a week with one overnight. The source adds that she will get an additional overnight by year's end, barring any setbacks.

At a press conference following Friday's hearing, Kaplan declined to address any monetary settlement. "This has been a long ordeal [for Kevin]," Kaplan said, "…

Jessica Alba And Cash Warren’s Baby Honor Marie

In a recent interview with OK! magazine, Jessica Alba speaks on the joy of being a new mom and on her birth experience: OK Mag



“I didn’t scream,” Jessica tells OK! in an exclusive interview and photoshoot. “It was really Zen.” And Cash could only marvel at his wife’s quiet strength when she gave birth. “She didn’t make a sound,” he says. “It was amazing.”
Jessica, who tells OK! she ate “a lot of soul food” in the weeks following Honor’s birth, says she’s just now starting to shed the pregnancy pounds.

“I started working out last Thursday, but for 20 minutes. I do cardio on my own. I’m doing it slow,” she says. “Now I’m starting to eat more healthy. Because after working out, having fried chicken and mashed potatoes is a little counteractive.”

So who does Honor look more like?

“She looks like a girl version of me,” Cash says. “She has my nose, my eyebrows and my…”

“Forehead and dimples,” Jessica finishes, adding, “She has my mouth when I was a baby. And my ears.”

“Maybe Honor is a mixture,” C…

Khloe Kardashian Sentenced to Three Days in Jail

Khloe Kardashian, the youngest of the Kardashian sisters, has been sentenced to three days in Los Angeles County jail for violating probation following a DUI arrest.



“She admitted to failing to complete [roadside cleanup duty] and enroll in an alcohol education class,” said L.A. City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan on Monday.

Kardashian, 24, has until July 18 to begin serving her sentence. She was sentenced on July 3.

“Khloe is ready and willing to serve out her sentence, no matter how long and where, and have this resolved,” her rep tells people.

Kardashian, who appeared in E!’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians, was arrested for DUI in March 2007, and was sentenced to three years probation.

Over the weekend, Kardashian showed no obvious signs of worry about her upcoming jail term, as she attended a party at the Project Beach House in Malibu with her mother and sister Kourtney.

“Khloe actually looked great, really relaxed and having a good time,” says a partygoer at Sunday’s Lia Sophia Cla…

Bonjour! Jolie-Pitt Twins Are the Talk of Nice

Just hours after he cut the umbilical cords of his newborn twins, Brad Pitt welcomed the mayor of Nice and told him, “I’m the happiest father ever.”

In fact, the proud papa kept repeating the phrase over and over again, Mayor Christian Estrosi – who visited Pitt and Angelina Jolie in their hospital room – told the local newspaper Nice-Matin.

The twins, Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline, were born Saturday and the mayor came by the next day to sign their birth certificates.

According to the paper, the babies spent Saturday night in Jolie’s room and she took care of them by herself.

The actress’s obstetrician, Dr. Michel Sussmann, also said that Knox and Vivienne – who weighed in at 5.03 and 5 lbs., respectively – are in excellent health, but they do need to gain some weight. He told Nice-Matin that Jolie may remain at the hospital another six or seven days while the newborns grow.

While the duration of Jolie’s hospital stay remains to be seen, Mayor Estrosi added that Pitt and Jolie have gr…

Angelina & Brad's Twins Are Born

Brad Pitt was at Angelina Jolie's side as she gave birth to a son and daughter Saturday at the Fondation Lenval hospital in Nice, France, people has confirmed.



"The babies are doing well. The operation went just perfectly," Dr. Michael Sussmann told people Sunday. "Angelina is in very good spirits. Brad Pitt was at her side. He was there and all was well."

Sussmann confirmed the Nice Matin newspaper report that Jolie gave birth to a boy, Knox Leon, and a girl, Vivienne Marcheline, by Cesarean section on Saturday night. Knox weighed 5.03 lbs, and Vivienne 5 lbs.

The twins are the fifth and sixth children for Jolie, 33, and partner Brad Pitt, 44, who are already parents to Maddox, 6; Pax, 4; Zahara, 3; and Shiloh, 2.

"The mother and father are very, very happy," Sussmann told people.

The doctor told the Associated Press that the Cesarean was moved forward "for medical reasons" so that the babies could be born "in the best conditions." He …

I still fear my Amy will DIE, says her terrified father in revealing new interview

The distraught father of Amy Winehouse has again voiced his fears about the state of his troubled daughter.

Speaking to Sky- in an interview to be broadcast today- Mitch Winehouse raised his concern about his off the rails daughter, stating that her feared for her life.

In an attempt to help this fragile child, Mitch- a taxi driver from North London- spoke of his anguish at watching his Amy's wild ways.


Worried: Mitch Winehouse revealed his concern for his troubled daughter Amy, fearing she may die if she does not change her ways

He said: 'My biggest fear is that she will die.'

'She wouldn't die form a drug overdose- it would be from emphysema, if she didn't check her behaviour- which she has now done.'

The troubled singer was diagnosed with emphysema- an incurable disease that attacks the lungs- after she collapsed two months ago.

Mitch continued to speak of the effects of her condition.

'She's got a serious health problem and she can't carry on like …

Nicole's Roman à Richie Headed to TV

Nicole Richie is preparing to tell the truth—to an extent.

The former Simple Life star exclusively tells E! News that a TV show based on her 2005 coming-of-age novel The Truth About Diamonds is in the works and she's gearing up to be a part of the production.

"I would definitely produce and definitely be in the show," the socialite says, although she stopped short of saying she would play the lead, adding, "I don't know if I need to be the star of this show.

"I've got a lot going on right now."

Richie's thinly veiled memoir tells the story of twentysomething Chloe Parker, who was adopted by a music superstar when she was 7 and as a young adult finds herself running with an elite Hollywood party crowd in between run-ins with the police, tabloid rumors and a stint in rehab.

Throughout, Chloe struggles to maintain her integrity and sobriety as the people she thought she could trust angle to get a piece of her.

"The reserved plaque on the table had …

Alicia Keys to Take On James Bond?

Alicia Keys as a Bond Girl?

Not exactly.

But I just got word that the songbird is the top contender to sing the title song for the next James Bond flick, Quantum of Solace.


No official announcement has been made, but a source tells me, "I believe Alicia is the winner."

There have been a lot of rumors surrounding the highly coveted spot to belt one out for 007. A gaggle of artists reportedly submitted songs for consideration to producers of the 22nd Bond film, including Beyoncé, Leona Lewis, Duran Duran, Jack White, Duffy and, most recently, Annie Lennox.

Amy Winehouse was the first singer linked to the movie, but she apparently never finished recording her song with über-producer Mark Ronson.

A rep for Keys declined to comment. A rep for the movie said there was "no info" available right now about a potential title song.

The flick, starring Daniel Craig as the silver screen's most famous spy, is scheduled for a November release.

Going Up? Britney Hits the Elevator for Madonna Concert Video

Here's the scoop, bitch.

Cameras started to roll today on the video that Britney Spears is making for Madonna's upcoming Sticky & Sweet tour, which, sources tell E! News, will be the opening video for each show.




The "Are you ready to rumble?!" video, if you will.

The shoot took place today at the Lot in West Hollywood, the former site of Warner Hollywood, United Artists and the Samuel Goldwyn Studios.

An on-set source said that Britney arrived at around 9 a.m. and was holed up in her dressing room by 9:30. The "Toxic" singer didn't start shooting her scenes until noon.

According to our insiders, the planned "short movie" will take place inside an elevator, where seven cameras will be strategically placed to capture the magic. The scene-by-scene breakdown goes like this:

Britney, partially disguised by a gray hoodie, walks into the elevator. As she starts traveling upward, she seems particularly nervous and anxious. The popster starts pacing back…

Jessica Biel Is One Groovy Chick

Maybe because her boyfriend brought sexy back, Jessica Biel is feeling pressure to revitalize something as well.

While sharing her thoughts on the institution of marriage in the August issue of Harper's Bazaar, the '80s-born beauty manages to throw in a little syntax from the '60s.

"I've never been someone who's like, 'I have to, have to, have to have it,'" she says. "But the idea of being with somebody I care about, who's my soul mate, that sounds groovy."

While not exactly longing for a return to those hippie-dippy days, we'll definitely take such counterculture-based terminology over the likes of tubular, phat, nifty and dope anytime.

George Clooney's Ex Isn't Bitter Over Breakup

A smile goes a long way. Just ask Sarah Larson, George Clooney’s former girlfriend, who tells Hello! magazine she isn’t angry. NOT. ONE. BIT. Nope. Happy as a clam.

"I make good money. I have a house. I have all the things I've always wanted. I'm in a good place."

That’s right. No hard feelings, George. The former Vegas cocktail waitress and Christian Audigier model (her first billboard just went up Monday over the Ed Hardy boutique) will just take her big, TOTALLY UNBITTER smile to some other breathing lottery ticket. Thanks for the laughs.

Kanye: Angry Over Anger-Management Rumors

Now it's Kanye West's turn to do a little booing of his own.

The controversial rapper, who faced a disapproving crowd at last month's Bonnaroo festival, has taken to his blog to lash out at reports that he is about to learn how to keep his often volatile emotions in check...

"I have never had any conversations about anger management," he writes. "If anything, I need anger enhancement!! LOL!"

Not to play armchair analyst here, but by laughing out loud at the notion one needs more rage in his life, isn't that acknowledging that there's way too much there to begin with?

We hope that rhetorical question doesn't make you angry, Kanye. Unless, of course, you want it to.

Will Smith’s Superpowers Still Work

Will Smith did Hancock a solid.

Smith has star-powered the poorly reviewed superhero hybrid to a $66 million opening weekend, and a No. 1 finish, according to Exhibitor Relations estimates today.




WALL-E, last weekend’s champ, stayed strong, grossing another $33.4 million, but finished a distant second.

Hancock goes down as Smith’s seventh straight movie to open No. 1. If you count Shark Tale, the 2004 animated comedy, as a Smith movie, his streak stands at eight straight.

Overall, Hancock has grossed $107.3 million since “previewing” on Tuesday night and “opening” on Wednesday.

Looking strictly at the movie’s first five days, Wednesday-Sunday, Hancock took in $100.4 million, per Box Office Mojo stats, far behind the pace of this summer’s two leading movies, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull ($152 million) and Iron Man ($112.1 million).

Among Smith movies, Hancock becomes his top Fourth of July opener, a testament to the star’s drawing power, yes, but also inflation.

Britney “Considering” Shooting Video For Madonna Tour

A Britney Spears insider tells E that Britney and Madonna soon might appear onstage together…sort of.



“She is considering doing a video piece for Madonna’s tour,” says the source. Her video would appear on giant screens onstage. The European leg of the Sticky & Sweet tour starts next month.

The source called a report in London’s Sun newspaper “wrong” in saying that the Material Mom has invited the former Mouseketeer to perform with her and is taking further interest in her comeback.

Jessica Alba Ponders ‘Laid-Back’ Motherhood

New mom Jessica Alba gave birth to her first child, Honor Marie Warren, last month. Now she’s carefully considering how she and husband Cash Warren will influence their daughter.



“Kids’ personalities have so much to do with the parents and their mentality,” the 27-year-old tells Britain’s Sunday Express for their S Magazine. “If you’re very paranoid and uptight and won’t let your child cross the street, they are going to take on that anxiety. If you’re a little more laid-back and make your kids responsible for their actions, you’ll probably have an easier time with them. I guess I’ll find out.”

The actress has also been studying up on children’s health issues.

“I’ve been reading a lot about kids and infections, autism and vaccinations,” adds Alba, who suffered from health problems as a child. “I’ve come to think that perhaps I was a product of my environment or the vaccines or something my mother took when she was pregnant.”

Already, Alba finds that her own eating habits have drastically …

Linda Hogan Claims Hulk is Stalking Her

The acrimonious split between the Hogans has gotten even nastier.

Linda Hogan filed court documents on June 30 seeking to prevent her estranged husband from harassing her. In the documents, first reported by TMZ.com, Linda Hogan, 48, claims that Hulk Hogan, 54, "relentlessly and methodically" follows her, "causing her anxiety and fear for her safety at all times." The motion also claims that Hulk "has a history of violence" towards Linda, "and is capable of attacking [her] at any time."

In a statement, David Houston, a lawyer for Hulk (whose real name is Terry Bollea) shot back: "Linda Bollea's allegations are pure fantasy, in line with her recent 911 call that has been widely played in the media.

"On May 22, Linda called 911 claiming Hulk was stalking her, which Hulk vehemently denied. Since November, Terry Bollea has been in Los Angeles working. The limited time that he has spent in Florida has been solely to visit his son and daugh…
