Demi Lovato’s camp slams sex tape rumor

Demi Lovato’s camp is “disgusted” by rumors that the 18-year-old has a sex tape floating around somewhere.

A source told paparazzi site X17 that the Disney star, currently in rehab for emotional reasons, is “no stranger to filming” her intimate moments, and footage “will surface soon.” Her uncle Francisco, acting in a “chaperone” capacity, is said to have kept watch outside her tour bus while she enjoyed a romp in August.

But the “Sonny With a Chance” star’s rep fumes in a statement, “Perpetrating these completely unfounded rumors from supposed sources while Demi is in treatment dealing with serious physical and emotional issues is disgusting.”

Notes the rep, “The sourcing on this report is so spotty that it is hard to fully respond. For instance, Francisco Lovato is the brother of Demi’s estranged father. He never traveled on the tour, and certainly didn’t serve as some sort of chaperone. We would ask serious news outlets to strongly consider the source of this story.”

Don’t Blame Me

Julia Stiles has spoken out about rumors she was involved in the demise of two “Dexter” costars’ marriage. After Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter announced they are going their separate ways, whispers surfaced that Julia, who guested as Michael’s titular character’s love interest this season, might have gotten close to the actor in real life.

“I have absolutely nothing to do with the split between Michael and Jennifer,” insisted the “Bourne Ultimatum” star in a statement. “We are good friends and enjoyed working together. This is a personal matter between them, and we should respect their privacy.”

“Although I too prefer to keep my private life, private,” Julia added. “I felt compelled to dispel the rumors I was somehow the cause for this matter.”

Civil Exes

The rumors that Ryan Reynolds got a little too flirty with Blake Lively on the “Green Lantern” set must not be true, if his estranged wife Scarlett Johansson is willing to break bread with him in public. The pair, who just announced they are ending their marriage, rendezvoused at Blue Ribbon restaurant in NYC for a “friendly meal,” a source tells People magazine.

“They were smiling and laughing the whole time,” says the source — which suggests we have every reason to believe their official joint statement that the split, after two years of marriage, was amicable. (“We entered our relationship with love and it’s with love and kindness we leave it,” they said.)

Well, that’s nice … but we would have expected a little more drama from the Sexiest Man Alive’s divorce!

Christmas Trip

Most people like being home for the holidays. But most people aren’t like Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. So what are their Christmas plans?

“We’re going to travel with the kids and go to a random part of the world,” Angie informed Ryan Seacrest on his radio show. “We’re going to travel and have an adventure because that’s what we love to do.”

The actress didn’t say where they’re headed. But at this point, they’ve already been to every far-flung corner of the world. Wouldn’t it be more of an adventure to stay home?
