Scoop! Timberlake and Diaz wedding set for 2021?

Hey, everybody, Justin Timberlake is still kinda on the market. The singer confirmed on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show that he and longtime girlfriend Cameron Diaz are not engaged.

DeGeneres put Timberlake on the spot, asking him when he and the blond beauty are going to make it official.

“The only reason I need to know [is] I need to know, should I get a bridesmaid dress now or not?” DeGeneres asked.

“Know what?” Timberlake replied. “Go ahead and reserve one. The only thing is you’ll have to stay the same size for the next 15 years.”

Timberlake, 25, said he’s waiting for Diaz, 34, to pop the question.

“Funny thing, one week we’re getting married, one week we’ve broken up,” Timberlake said. “I can’t keep up with it.”

Ashlee is so over Braxton

Speaking of being back on the market, Ashlee Simpson and her bassist, Braxton Olita, are over.

“They have decided to take a break,” Simpson’s rep told Us Weekly.

Gossip hounds started barking last week when Ashlee was spotted gettin’ cozy with Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz.

“Ashlee has been telling everyone that she’s over Braxton,” a source confessed.

It turns out that Ashlee wasn’t the only one buying her significant other a one-way ticket to Dumpsville. Wentz sent “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” star Michelle Trachtenberg packing in order to be with Ashlee.

Another day, another ‘Lost’ arrest

Forget the hatch, the numbers and The Others, the real mystery about “Lost” is why do all the actors keep getting in trouble with the law?

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who plays the mysterious Mr. Eko, was arrested early Saturday morning for disobeying a police officer and driving without a license in Waikiki.

The 39-year-old actor paid the $500 bail and was released after spending six hours in jail. He will be going back to court on Sept. 29.

Akinnuoye-Agbaje is the third “Lost” cast member to get arrested, while six others have been cited for traffic violations.

Michelle “Ana Lucia” Rodriquez and Cynthia “Libby” Watros were arrested for drunken driving in November. Josh “Sawyer” Holloway, Dominic “Charlie” Monaghan, Naveen “Sayid” Andrews, Ian “Boone” Somerhalder and Christian “Steve” Bowman all got speeding tickets, while Harold “Michael” Perrineau Jr. was busted for driving without insurance.

Dumb and dumber

Screenwriter Joe Eszterhas is questioning the intelligence of some of Hollywood’s top actors in his new book, “The Devil’s Guide To Hollywood: The Screenwriter As God.”

Eszterhas, who has written such intelligent fare as “Showgirls,” “Sliver,” “Basic Instinct” and “Flashdance,” says Val Kilmer and Michael Douglas are about as bright as, well, a character in an Eszterhas movie.

“Val Kilmer is an imbecile. Asked by the Academy to nominate the three best film moments of the century, Kilmer nominated three of his movies. One of them was ‘Batman Forever,’” Eszterhas writes, according to ContactMusic.com. “Michael Douglas, in my experience, is not brilliant and may very well, in some cases, be dumb.”
