Contrary to scurrilous Internet gossip, Justin Timberlake did not secretly make an honest woman of Jessica Biel over the weekend. Yes, folks, you can relax — they’re still living in sin!
Despite buzz that the engaged pair tied the knot in Jackson Hole, Wyo., it turns out they weren’t even in the U.S. — or on the same continent as each other, for that matter: She was in Europe flogging the dead horse that is “Total Recall,” while he was at work in Puerto Rico, per E!
“Justin and Jessica are seriously still in the early planning stages of the wedding and don’t have it all figured out yet, as Jessica keeps saying,” a source told Us magazine. “They are both working [a lot].”
Uh, other than a few red-carpet premieres, she’s working on what, exactly?
After the shocking news of Tony Scott’s suicide broke Sunday, Radar Online reported that the “Top Gun” director had inoperable brain cancer, which could have contributed to his tragic choice to plunge off a Los Angeles-area bridge.
A neurologist (who, unsurprisingly, had not treated Scott) said the man whom Tom Cruise called a “visionary” may have had his “decision-making” ability impaired by the disease.
“Brain cancer can affect the patient’s ability to think clearly, and it may lead them to think the situation is hopeless when in fact there are things that can be done,” Dr. Lee D. Cranberg reportedly explained to the gossip site.
That may be so, but did Scott in fact have cancer? According to TMZ, his wife told investigators that rumor is “absolutely false,” and that her husband did not have any serious health issues that might have motivated a suicide.
And while more testing is required before autopsy results will be revealed, sources said no brain cancer evidence was spotted. Which, if true, begs the question: How exactly did that rumor get started?
