For all the wrong reasons, Swayze had been the hottest topics on cyberspace early on 19th. Rumors of Patrick Swayze loosing his public battle with Pancreatic cancer spread like wildfire through Twitter on 19th. The confusion began when traditional media got it wrong and Jacksonville, Florida radio station sent an instant message on a well known Twitter site announcing that the 56-year old Dirty Dancing star passed away. This even led to Swayze’s Wikipedia page being updated wrongly.
The publicist of Swayze, Annett Wolf however was quick to release a statement in response to the false news given by Twitter. “This is to confirm that Patrick Swayze did not pass away this morning contrary to severely reckless reports stemming from a radio station in Jacksonville, Fla. Patrick Swayze is alive, well and is enjoying his life and he continues to respond to treatment.”
People should have taken care to get confirmation before circulating such a serious news as death! They seem like vultures who are waiting to see when someone dies and feel happy they are the first to report someone’s death. Poor Patrick, he’s very much alive. The dude is gaining popularity through the exaggerated news of his health and this isn’t the first time.
Reports of Natalie Portman’s romantic involvement with Sean Penn have been categorically denied by the 27 year old actress. After repeated rumours that the actress was dating 48 year old Sean Penn, Natalie reacted sharply saying that they were just friends and colleagues. The response from Natalie slamming the rumours came after about two months when she was tired of hearing the fabricated story of her romantic link-up with Sean Penn.
In 2007, Sean who won the Second Best Actor Award for his role in Milk filed for separation from his wife but his petition was dismissed. Later his wife’s petition for divorce was also dismissed. What could have possibly triggered the rumour was that Portman and Sean were seen together in a West Hollywood bar soon after Sean filed for divorce with his 43 year old wife, Robin Wright Penn.
According to E! Online’s reports, Natalie said, “The reports that we are romantically involved are completely untrue. I normally do not respond to rumours about my private life, however, this repeatedly fabricated story has forced me to do so,”
Only last fall, Portman and the folk rock singer, Devendra Banhart called it quits after four months of dating.
After four years of marriage, the couple who had met on a reality show, I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! have separated. The decision has been taken by the Australian singer Peter Andre,35, who on seeing some snaps of his gorgeous model wife, Katie Price, 30, hanging around with some guy in the club blew his top and quit his home at UK leaving Katie devastated. Katie is extremely shocked and unhappy over Peter’s decision of separation as she has two children, a three year old and a 21-month old daughter from her marriage with him and loves him very much. Peter was also providing support and care to Katie’s severely disabled child from her previous relationship with Dwight Yorke..
Together they have made a fortune of £30million-plus and a decision as to its possession is yet to be made. Katie however has made it clear after leaving her Surrey mansion that it is not what she wanted and that it was the sole decision of Peter. She has further refused to comment on her private affair and has just stated that she will always love Peter. The couple has requested media to respect their privacies at this difficult time.
Last October, Price was reported to have stated that she wouldn’t leave him. She said “I wouldn’t [leave him]. It would only be if he cheated on me,” she said. “I think that’s the same for both of us - there’s nothing else that would make us break up - only if one of us was unfaithful.”
Former Baywatch Star David Hasselhoff is in serious trouble and it’s time he gets help to relieve himself of this alcohol addiction. On Saturday, he was seen lying on the floor unconscious by his sixteen year old daughter Hayley at his home in Encino, California. His helpless daughter had to call her mother and Hasselhoff’s ex-wife Pamela Bach who quickly arrived at the scene and rushed him off to Cedars-Sinai Medical center to save his life. It was alcohol poisoning yet again.
Before they got him to the hospital, Hayley slapped her dad several times on his faces as he was hardly breathing. The man now registers an alarmingly high alcohol level of .39 (in California, this is nearly five times the permitted driving limit). He’s however recovering and Pamela was awake all night till 4 in the morning attending to him. It is indeed a serious issue and can prove fatal if unchecked as David has been to the hospital seven times so far to get himself treated for alcohol poisoning.
David has been known for a long time to suffer from an alcohol abuse. In May 2007, a video coverage of the 56 year old America’s Got Talent host struggling to have his cheese burger was captured by his daughter and was even leaked to the Internet.
You must have heard of the high profile fight between Chris and Rihanna which made news for several weeks. Now there is a rumour that Rihanna is dating Andrew Bynum, the Los Angeles Lakers Basketball player. They were spotted together last weekend sitting down to an intimate dinner at Mastro’s Steakhouse in Beverly Hills. One source has even remarked, “They looked very couple-y, sitting real close to each other in the car.” However Andrew Bynum denied they were dating when asked by TMZ.com with a simple ‘Nope’, he made it very clear that no romance was involved. Since the break up with Chris, this was the first time Rihanna was seen with someone else.
While certain sources have maintained that the two had dinner together, there is an interesting report which says an altogether different tale “Andrew was having dinner at Mastro’s with his brother and Rihanna was also having dinner there that night, but they were not together. They were simply both having dinner at the same restaurant the same night.”
Another Source reveals that Rihanna is now quietly living with R&B star suggesting that their relationship has been established again. Family and friends have asked Rihanna to stay away from Chris but Rihanna seems to love him too deeply to be able to part with him.
Who ever she’s with, hope she doesn’t get slapped again.
At last, Drew Barrymore put an end to the rumours circulating for a long time concerning her relationship with her on-off boyfriend Justin Long. At the NYC premiere of Grey Gardens held at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, Drew who was sighted being cozy with Justin giving everybody the hint that they got back together, announced she was still single. Post party at a hotel, they were cuddled together posing for photographs.
About her ’single’ status, she told US magazine.com “I love it! It’s great! I get to be who I am and do what I want and be with the people I love. I feel like I have everything, and I’m very fortunate, and it’s a very rich, fulfilling time in my life.”
On the film ‘Going The Distance’ that the two are working together on, Drew has said “We’re doing a film this summer, I guess people find it a little confusing. I totally understand. It seems like, ‘What is the deal with them?’ But we just adore each other. We’re in each other’s lives, and we’re friends, and we’re working together, and we have worked together.”
The 34 year old actress proves over and again that anything looks stunning on her. The glamorous woman was present at the “Inside Grey Gardens” panel discussion at North Hollywood’s Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre on Friday and graced the occasion with her one sleeved sea green dress.
Star Magazine has reported that Angelina Jolie is pregnant again and will soon have baby number seven. The couple had been trying for months for a baby and at last they have made it. Sources say “They’d been trying for another baby for months, but it was still a total shock when she found out.” “Brad and Angie have been fighting so much lately, it just didn’t seem possible,” the insider added. “It happened just in time, because things were getting pretty ugly between them,” said another.
There have been rumours concerning her pregnancy but now it seems it has been confirmed that she is two and a half months. This would be her fourth biological child with Brad Pitt. Currently Angie is working on new film “Salt” and producers have reported that she is doing fine. However friends of the actress have conveyed serious concern over her health following her recent collapse on set during the shoot of a scene. After she fainted briefly and sought medical attention there after, she was deemed fit to continue working on her latest project where she plays a CIA agent accused of spying.
She’s taking a lot of efforts to play the triple role of mom, actress and wife; naturally she would be fagged out at the end of the day. She’s totally exhausted and thin. Anyway, this has happened just in time when Brad and Jolie were having alot of friction of late. Let’s hope things get better for them.
Way back when Miley Cyrus and Nick Jones had a break up, there were tabloids on feuds between the two. Every one believed they are eternal enemies. This is not the same any longer, the two have been good friends for a while and have been talking a lot. “We don’t hate each other. We really love each other,” she said. “He’s really cool and I’m happy we’ve been able to stay friends.”
“Everyone thinks that me and the Jonas Brothers have this big feud going on — [but] me and Nick are really close friends now,” she continued. “We talk all the time and he’s one of my best friends.”
Since their break-up, they have not been involved jointly in musical assignments. But now they are teaming up to record the Disney tune, “Pass It On”. This is a lovely song about kindness and sharing that kindness with people, it’s very similar to the 1985 song “We are the world” which was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Ritchie and was performed by a group of popular singers like Stevie Wonder, Willie Nelson, Diana Ross, Daryl Hall, Smokey Robinson. And undoubtedly, it would create a lot of enthusiasm among the fans who will very soon see the big stars perform. Nick and Miley would be joined by Nick’s brothers Joe and Kevin. The shooting for the video has begun today.
Angelina and Brad Pitt are going haywire these days. Probably the work pressure does not leave enough time for Angie to spend with her family. We do not know if the rumours are true, but it has been reported that for quite a while they’ve been fighting and even sharing separate beds. Presently the actress is busy with her new project ‘Salt’ and has been working long hours on the set. A friend of Angelina told Grazia magazine that Angelina was totally exhausted after returning home from the shoot and when she found that Brad had been with beer, watching DVDs and had done nothing all day while the children were creating a racket at home, she blew her top. She was trying to wake him up but he responded with ‘leave me alone’.
So what does Brad have to say ?
Brad needs to know of Angelina’s commitment and so has issued an ultimatum – “Marry me or its over!” Their relationship is so out of order that it has kind of driven Brad balmy. He has become increasingly frustrated over her not spending time with him and feels that he’s playing a single father while his partner is wrapped up in her filming. He believes that a wedding is all needed to restore their relationship. Sources report that he has even made an earnest request to Angelina to attend a couple’s counseling. She has consented to it but says she has to check with her ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton. If all goes well and the Changeling star accepts his decision, we can soon expect a wedding of the glamourous couple.
And now their adoption reports -
News of the couple planning to adopt an Indian girl is circulating. During the Oscars, Angie met the Slumdog kids and told 10-year-old Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail that she would be adopting a child from India. This has brought new fire to the adoption issue.
For quiet some time, Madonna had been seriously considering adopting a second child and now she’s already in Malawi, the African country to complete the proceedings. The singer who has had an earlier adoption of David Banda, 3, is back to the country’s capital, Lilongwe to appear before the High Court judge and take Mercy James home, once the plan is through. In order to certify her adoption, the court has appointed an overseer who has to make an assessment of Madonna’s eligibility as a parent and produce two reports on the same before the judge. A similar procedure was carried out in the case of David’s adoption and two positive reports supporting the suitability of ex-husband Guy Ritchie and Madonna as parents had been prepared. But this time it could be tough owing to the break-up of Madonna and Guy Ritchie.
The Associated Press Agency has reported that Mercy James is the child of an unmarried 18-year old woman who died two days after giving birth to Mercy. Oppositions have already been raised over Madonna’s plans. David Nutt, spokesman for the Save the Children charity, wants Madonna to reconsider her decision. However, Steven Whitehead of the charity Oasis, appreciates Madonna’s move saying foreign adoption is a good idea. He said: “There are a number of children for whom inter-country adoption represents their only chance of having a family, and the human convention on the right of the child gives every child the right to a family.
“And it’s much better for them be in a family, wherever it may happen to be, than be in institutional care. The damaging effect of institutional care on children is so well recognised that, you know, it’s just not an issue of debate.”
One of the reasons why Madonna is earnest in her effort to adopt Mercy James is that she wants David to have a sibling from his own country. The 50-year old star was accompanied by her 12-year old daughter, Lourdes; both arrived at the Kamuzu International Airport on Sunday.
