More driving trouble for Amanda Bynes: She is accused of hitting a car on a California freeway in April, then fleeing the scene.
According to TMZ, the accident victim attempted to follow the car that hit hers — but after exiting the freeway, it ran a red light and got away. A license-plate search reportedly traced the rental car back to Amanda — and the alleged victim recognized the driver from her photo … which just happened to be a DUI mugshot.
Seriously, Amanda, if you can’t afford to hire a driver, just get a bus pass! It would be cheaper and less embarrassing than dealing with these charges every other week.
Keira Knightley is engaged! After a 15-month courtship, she is set to wed rocker James Righton of London indie band the Klaxons, her rep confirmed.
The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star is said to have met the keyboardist via fashion personality Alexa Chung, a mutual pal.
“Keira’s on cloud nine,” a friend of hers told the U.K.’s Mirror. “She met James almost by luck and didn’t think it would amount to the great love of her life. But she’s blissfully happy.”
The day after the news broke, the British beauty, 27, was all smiles as she and her fiance, 28, strolled London with arms entwined. And yes, a simple — some would say unimpressive — diamond sparkler adorned her left ring finger.
“They’ve been engaged a few weeks,” said her pal. “All her close friends knew. They won’t be getting married immediately — but they won’t be hanging around too long.”
Speaking of engagements, Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake celebrated theirs with a star-studded cocktail party Saturday.
Reportedly, about 100 guests feted the longtime lovebirds, who got engaged in December after weathering a brief split. Power couple Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi, actress Amy Adams and J.T.’s musical colleagues JC Chasez, Lance Bass and producer Timbaland attended, along with a bunch of non-famous loved ones.
According to Us magazine, Justin rocked a black suit and a fedora while his fiancee sported a leopard-print dress with a hot-pink belt.
“Jessica seems to be very close with Justin’s friends and vice versa,” a source noted. “You can see that they have been dating for a long time and really know each other’s friends and family well.”
“The party was a fun celebration and a preview of what’s to come with the wedding,” added the source. But hopefully that occasion won’t involve leopard print and hot pink.
