Hailey Glassman’s recent claim that Jon Gosselin is “emotionally abusing” her might have been a front for their breakup, a source tells People. The reality star’s girlfriend may have been playing along with a plan to get her out of the picture.
“This was all a carefully orchestrated sequence: First, Hailey laments how hard her life has been lately and how bad Jon treats her, then Jon repents,” an insider explains. “Next, Jon plans to announce that he is going to be spending some time alone,” after a statement that he will be exploring his spiritual side under the guidance of Rabbi Shmuley Boteach. “It has all been designed so that it doesn’t seem as though Hailey got dumped.”
Indeed, the rabbi declared to the New York Post, “I have advised him to end it with Hailey. It is unacceptable to be in a relationship when he is still married and has to take care of kids who are hurting. It is not a healthy relationship.”
Still, the People source notes, it may not be a clean break: “Jon has said he was done [with Hailey] before, but he basically hasn’t been single since he was 19 ... He doesn’t really know how to be alone. He’ll probably still spend most of his time either with Hailey, or some new girl.”
So ... does that mean we should believe those rumors Jon’s doing a reality show in which he dates Nadya “Octo-mom” Suleiman? Oh, please, no.
After an ugly breakup that included revelations of his affair with his children’s nanny, could Sienna Miller and Jude Law really be getting back together? By chance, both are starring in Broadway shows just down the street from each other.
“Sienna and Jude have met up a few times and got on really well,” a source told the U.K.’s Now. “Sienna had her heart broken by Jude, but she was young and it was the first time she’d fallen in love. What people don’t realize is that they always remained close, so who knows where this will lead to next.
“They’re desperate to keep their hook-ups secret because their breakup was so public,” adds the source. “They don’t want any potential reconciliation all over the papers, especially with Jude having just fathered a child with another woman.” (That would be Samantha Burke, the model who just delivered a daughter Jude hasn’t yet met.)
And pal Jonny Lee Miller has been a great wingman, according to the source: “Jonny’s great at throwing the paparazzi off the scent. He’ll walk down the street with Sienna to where Jude’s staying just round the corner.”
Jude’s rep confirmed that they did meet up but downplayed it as platonic, telling Glamour: “Jude and Sienna are just friends and are seeing each other socially occasionally as they are both on Broadway, performing just one block apart.” Interesting.
Lindsay Lohan and her mother are not too happy about LiLo’s dad’s recent attempts to “help” the starlet. Michael Lohan says he’s determined to intervene in his daughter’s life to save her from a supposed prescription drug problem; he’s talking conservatorship (shades of Britney), and threatening to go on TV and play voice messages in which he discusses the situation with ex-wife Dina. But Lindsay and her mom aren’t having it.
“He is hurting Lindsay. It breaks my heart. She’s like, ‘Mommy, when is he ever going to stop?’” Dina lamented to Page Six. “He is also six months behind in his child support. On Monday, we will file a violation order, and if he doesn’t pay, he’ll go to jail.
“It is horrific that a father could do this,” she says of her former husband’s public declarations about his daughter. “[Lindsay’s younger sister] Ali is scared and will be getting an order of protection. Lindsay is getting an order in California and in New York.”
Meanwhile, Lindsay tweeted, “My father is a lunatic & doesn’t even deserve such a title since he’s never been around in my life other than when he’d threaten me & my family.” Sooo ... we’re thinking Michael’s plan isn’t working out so well.
