Oh, dear. Right after we told you how Lindsay Lohan’s friends were insisting to TMZ that she’s clean and sober comes a report that she was “belligerently drunk” at a club in the wee hours of Sunday. After a fellow reveler attempted to snap her picture, a LiLo pal dunked the camera into an ice bucket, according to Radar Online.
“We didn’t press charges because we thought it was funny at first,” explained a pal of the camera’s owner. “We all were drunk. But then we figured out when we got home that the camera was broken because water seeped in. The memory card, though, was still good.”
“Lindsay appeared to be belligerently drunk,” relayed the source. “She and her people were doing shots of something all night. She looked like she was falling all over the place. She was being stupid.”
“When she grabbed my friend’s wrist, another woman who was with Lindsay grabbed the camera,” the club-goer recalled. “She kept saying ‘I need that camera’ over and over again. So the woman got it and sunk it into the ice bucket.”
Her rep said, “I don’t have any knowledge of this alleged incident whatsoever.”
Regardless of whether she was actually drinking, we think Lindsay’s handlers would do well to invest in some board games, maybe a Wii — and keep her entertained at home so she stays out of clubs!
Two single “Gossip Girl” stars were linked to eligible actors this week, though it may be premature to issue a “new couple alert” for either pair. First off, Blake Lively was spotted strolling the grounds of a hotel in France with Leonardo DiCaprio, newly split from model Bar Refaeli.
“She was wearing white and he was in a baseball cap,” a New York Post source dished. “They walked around the grounds together. It looked like they were a couple.”
Leo’s rep wouldn’t comment, but he and the blond starlet were supposedly spotted flirting as far back as January, per the paper.
Meanwhile, on Sunday, Leighton Meester dined with “He’s Just Not That Into You” star Justin Long outside Hollywood’s La Poubelle. “They were happily willing to talk to fans who approached them,” a source told People.
The pair held hands throughout the two-hour meal, which lasted past midnight.
Flirting? Hand-holding? We fully expect rumors of a Blake-Leo-Leighton-Justin double wedding to start any second!
Alicia Keys says she isn’t a home wrecker — and she was pained by allegations that she “stole” Swizz Beatz, now her husband and baby-daddy, from his first wife.
Though the hip-hop producer was indeed still married to R&B singer Mashonda when they hooked up, Alicia insists to Essence, “We didn’t start seeing each other until months after they had separated.”
The “No One” singer says she “was aware of all the false things that were being said about me,” noting, “It definitely hurt.”
But things have progressed a long way since Mashonda accused Alicia of “destroying” her family with Swizz and their son. (He also has two other children besides his son, Egypt, with Alicia.)
“Things are really good now,” says the singer, adding that her hubby “is very present in his children’s lives. I wouldn’t be able to love him otherwise.”
Wonder if Mashonda and his other exes would say the same?
