Brand and Angelina suing tabloid over split rumors, public groping ensues to prove the point

post_image-0208_brad_pitt_angelina_00

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are suing British Tabloid News Of The World (FYI, it’s much easier to sue for libel and win in the UK so this is an easy target) for publishing a story claiming the two have already split and are in the process of dividing their assets…which probably explains why Brad Pitt held on tight to Angelina’s areola like a good luck charm during much of the Super Bowl game on Sunday. Word of caution to these two lovepterodactyls: Remember that full-page ad Richard Gere and Cindy Crawford took out in the London Times in 1994, saying ‘We are heterosexual and monogamous …There are no plans, nor have there ever been any plans for divorce. We remain very married’? They divorced six months later.

 

Johnny Depp shuns title

When Johnny Depp was crowned People magazine’s 2009 Sexiest Man Alive last November, not only did he stomped last year’s winner and this year’s hot favorite Hugh Jackman to earn the title but also entered the elite club of two-time SMA title holders (only Brad Pitt and George Clooney have matched the feat). But guess what, Johnny is not too thrilled with this honor. The 46-year-old actor has shunned the title, telling that he thought the honor was a “joke”.

Contactmusic reports,

The Pirates of the Caribbean star, who previously scooped the award in 2003, proved he is still making fans swoon at the age of 46 after winning the prize in 2009. Depp nudged out hunky 2008 winner Hugh Jackman, but insists he doesn’t belong on the list, next to other double winners including Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Richard Gere. He tells the Associated Press, “That should be someone else, that confuses me beyond recognition. I don’t know how to react. I really thought it was a joke.”

Mariah Carey shows her “ottomams” to the Ottomans

We’re thinking that’s the least she could have done…after all, she got paid $1.5million just to make an appearance at the Mardan Palace’s grand opening in Antalya, Turkey (Saturday) and sing two songs (we’re thinking a nipple slip would have made her price tag a bit more fair)…

Apparently, Tom Jones and his tupee also give the Turks the hot flashes because they paid him just as much to sing with Mariah. Poor Paris Hilton only received a four-figure sum to make an appearance (the Ottomans like their women with meat on their bones…and we hear they stipulated in her contract that she was to wear no tiaras to the event). Seal, Monica Bellucci, Sharon Stone and Richard Gere were amongst the many guests attending the event.

By the way, suites at the Mardan Palace go for about $20,000. The hotel was developed by Telman Ismailov, Chairman of Russia’s biggest property developer AST and it cost around $1.5 billion to build.
