Scoop! Lindsay’s odd rant: I’ll sue the tabloids’

Lindsay Lohan may be attending AA meetings, but she hasn’t curbed her erratic behavior. LiLo’s latest loopy move: a rambling mass e-mail to friends and associates, in which she accuses the press of “trying to put an end to me and belittle me” — and seeks help from the likes of the Clintons and Al Gore.

“Let’s sue the tabloids for saying the things they say,” urges the troubled actress. “Defamation of character. Amongst other illegal accusations … I am not fully aware of what these, again, accusations are, but I am fully and eagerly prepared to learn them.” Uh, come again?

La Linds goes on, “Al Gore will help me he came up to me last night and said he would be very happy to have a conversation with me … Hilary [sic] Clinton, Bill Clinton … would be willing, if we just ask. If we just ASK.” (A Gore rep told Web site TMZ that the ex-Veep had only “met Ms. Lohan once, very briefly,” at an event the previous week.)

The bizarre missive isn’t the only worrisome indication that Lindsay’s wild Hollywood lifestyle is overwhelming her. Photos showing cuts and scars on Lindsay’s wrist and arm have given rise to speculation that she is self-mutilating. If this is true, it’s a loud and clear cry for help. Is Dina Lohan, Lindsay’s mom, listening?

Brangelina: No Noel Nuptials

Hope you got a receipt for that toaster you bought them —turns out Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie aren’t getting married after all. (At least, not yet.) This weekend, Hollywood was rumbling with rumors that the Oscar-winning actress was set to marry longtime boyfriend and baby-daddy Brad Pitt in South Africaat Christmastime. But Brad’s publicist has scotched the story as “all made up,” Us Weekly reports.

But even without a wedding in the works, the couple has plenty to celebrate this month, including Brad’s 43rd birthday Dec. 18 — for which he’s already gotten one splashy surprise gift. Thursday, Angelina indulged the former Sexiest Man Alive’s inner architecture geek with a tour of Fallingwater, the famous Pennsylvania house designed by master Frank Lloyd Wright. After Angie and a rapt Brad were led through the house (“He was incredibly well-informed about architecture,” their guide told People magazine), the couple indulged in champagne and caviar with Fallingwater staffers.

The jet-setting couple and their three children, Maddox, Zahara and Shiloh, just touched down in NYC. Angie’s there doing publicity for her movie “The Good Shepherd,” which premieres tonight.

Madonna’s Dinner Drama

Pop icon Madonna is known for being in total control of her public image. But according to a British tabloid, she couldn’t help having her dirty laundry aired when her husband chewed her out — ironically, for being “controlling” — at a swanky restaurant.

A diner at London restaurant Cicconi’s told the U.K.’s Daily Mirror that British director Guy Ritchie argued with Madge throughout what should have been a romantic dinner.

“The atmosphere between them was more than frosty. Guy was the one who was raising his voice the most — you couldn’t help but hear what he was saying. … He was telling her that he’d had enough of her being so controlling all the time and that something had to give.”

Uncharacteristically, Her Madgesty did not appear to be calling the shots, continues the patron: “Madonna tried to give it back to him, but he would just talk over her. She just seemed really embarrassed. They didn’t enjoy their meal and left after about an hour and a half.”

As Scoop! recently reported, the couple is rumored to be seeing a marriage counselor due to stress over their controversial adoption of African infant David Banda. Let’s hope they get through this rough patch.
