Topless Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse appears to be winning her battle against drugs as she looked the picture of health during a winter break in the sun.

And the singer also seems to have gained a considerable amount of weight over the last month.




Curvy: Amy Winehouse, pictured in St Lucia on Sunday, has piled on the pounds as she enjoys a relaxing break in the sun

Pleased with her new curves, Amy happily flaunted her topless figure in a pair of skimpy bikini bottoms.

The star is currently receiving treatment at a London clinic after a drug overdose.

And by the looks of things, rehab is having a positive effect on the star as she seemed relaxed and enjoying the break while frolicking on the Caribbean beach.

Madonna Denies Reports of a $76-Million Divorce Settlement

Madonna and Guy Ritchie are slamming recent stories about their divorce settlement.

The joint statement – issued in London – came two days after Madonna's U.S. rep gave the Associated Press details of the supposed deal. Liz Rosenberg said that Madonna, 50, was set to hand over cash and property worth between $76 million and $92 million, calling it "one of the largest [divorce] payouts ever."

But now the couple calls that information "misleading and inaccurate."

The statement reads:

"We have tried to maintain a dignified silence regarding the details of our divorce for the last few months whilst accepting the obvious media interest.

"A misleading and inaccurate statement, specifically in relation to the sums of money involved, was wrongly issued to AP this week.

"The financial details of the settlement will remain private, save to say that both of us are happy with our agreement.

"Our primary concern, like any co-parents, is the care and well being …

Diddy Throws Private Birthday Bash for Kim Porter

Diddy and Kim Porter have had a longtime on-again off-again romance – but the pair celebrated in style together when the music mogul threw an intimate birthday bash for her in West Hollywood Monday.

Nearly 30 guests, including Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo and husband Chris Ivery, co-star Sara Ramirez and reality TV's Lisa Gastineau, gathered at Murano Restaurant & Lounge to celebrate Porter's 38th birthday.

Porter – the mother of Diddy's nearly 2-year-old twin girls and 10-year-old son – arrived fashionably late to the restaurant, which was filled festive with red balloons and streamers. The night's soundtrack was a mix of old school 70s R&B prepared by Murano owner Sandy Sachs.

At one point in the evening, a guest tells people, "The group serenaded Kim to Stevie Wonder's "Happy Birthday," and then they presented her with a cake."

While Diddy stuck to ginger ale at the party, the other guests sipped on a specialty lemon drop martini …

Oprah Winfrey Admits to Tipping the Scales at 200 Lbs

Having packed 40 pounds onto her former 160-pound self, Oprah Winfrey is declaring, "I'm mad at myself" because she's "fallen off the wagon."

As the media mogul, 54, writes in the January issue of her O magazine hitting newsstands Tuesday (and provided in advance to the Associated Press by Winfrey's Harpo Productions): "I'm embarrassed … I can't believe that after all these years, all the things I know how to do, I'm still talking about my weight. I look at my thinner self and think, 'How did I let this happen again?' "

For starters, the fact that her thyroid was out-of-balance gave her "a fear of working out," she says. "I was so frustrated I started eating whatever I wanted – and that's never good."

Having slimmed down to 160 in 2006, she admits, "Yes, you're adding correctly. That means the dreaded 2-0-0."

Jennifer Hudson Returning to Work

Jennifer Hudson is getting back to work less than two months after three of her family members were fatally shot in Chicago.

The Grammy-nominated singer is scheduled to begin filming a video for the single "If It Isn't Love" next week, her label J Records tells the Associated Press.

Hudson, 27, was supposed to start filming the clip in Los Angeles when her mother, Darnell Hudson Donerson, 57, brother, Jason Hudson, 27, and nephew Julian, 7, were killed in October.

William Balfour, Hudson's estranged brother-in-law who is married to Hudson's sister Julia, was charged with three counts of first-degree murder last week. His lawyer has said Balfour " did not commit these crimes."

Hudson hasn't made any public appearances since the tragedy, however she issued a statement last week after being nominated for four Grammys for her debut album.

"It's been a childhood dream of mine to release an album, so to receive four Grammy nominations is truly a bless…
