Hollywood Dirt – Kelly Clarkson Cancels Big Wedding + Intruder Found Living in Jennifer Lopez’s Home
JENNIFER LOPEZ STALKER SLEEPOVER: JENNIFER LOPEZ had some unexpected — and unwanted — company at her beachfront New York estate last week. A stalker spent a week living in her Long Island guest house!
Lopez had gotten an order of protection to keep John Dubis away from her, but the paperwork didn’t have much effect. He reportedly set up camp in a pool house on her property while she was away and stayed until workers realized he had no business being there. Dubis now faces charges of burglary, criminal contempt, stalking and possession of burglar tools. He must also undergo a mental health evaluation. Ya think?
KELLY CLARKSON CANCEL HER BIG WEDDING!!!: KELLY CLARKSON has called off her wedding. Oh, she’s still planning to get married, it’s just not going to be a big production. Clarkson tells People magazine that she and fiancé Brandon Blackstock have decided to elope instead. “We just got so overwhelmed by it – all the decisions,” she tells the mag.
“Then it got crazy and all the details were leaking.” They’d already sent out invitations for an October 20th wedding so she first had to update all the guests before telling the rest of the world about the change. “I sent out an engagement photo to everyone and said, ‘Thank you so much for understanding, but it’s just going to be me and Brandon and his two kids and the minister,” reveals Clarkson.
KANYE WEST SUED BY PAPARAZZO: One week after the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office decided not to file charges against KANYE WEST for his LAX scuffle with a photographer last month, he’s been slapped with a lawsuit by him. At a news conferenceyesterday with lawyer Gloria Allred, photographer Daniel Ramos claims he spent two weeks on crutches after he was allegedly attacked by Kanye.
Ramos says he’s been walking with a cane for some time and that he’s still in pain. He’s suing for assault, battery, and interference with his civil rights, namely free speech. He’s seeking unspecified damages. (PHOTO)
P. DIDDY TURNED DOWN IDOL BECAUSE OF J. LO: KEITH URBAN is locked in, and although not yet official, JENNIFER LOPEZ is said to be coming back to American Idol. Word is producers wanted P. DIDDY but a past romance put the skids on that happening. Us Weekly reports Diddy was being considered for the third judge’s spot on the show but passed because he didn’t want to be on the panel with his ex-girlfriend J.Lo, whom he dated from 1999 to 2001.
Kanye West also reportedly passed up the third spot, but not because of Jennifer. He supposedly said no because he thought it would hurt his rep. “He didn’t want to go that mainstream,” a source told the mag. “He didn’t want to lose any street cred, so he turned it down.”
LADY GAGA DENOUNCES BRADLEY MANNING SENTENCE: You know the first thing I thought when I heard pfc. Bradley Manning had been sentenced to 35 years for passing classified intelligence to Wikileaks was, ‘I wonder what a well informed and astute political pundit like LADY GAGA thinks of this?’ Turns out I didn’t have to wait long because Gaga took to Twitter with her thoughts …
The news of Bradley Manning’s sentencing is devastating. If our own can’t speak up about injustice who will? How will we ever move forward?

Manning, who was convicted of violating the Espionage Act last month for releasing thousands of classified documents three years ago, reportedly said back in 2010 that he “listened and lip-synched to Lady Gaga’s ‘Telephone’ while exfiltrating possibly the largest data spillage in American history.”
TODAY IN CELEBRITY HAIR: MILEY CYRUS has fallen out of love — with her short hairdo. In an interview with pal Kelly Osbourne during a recent E! Fashion Police episode, Miley said she’s “tugging on it every night and taking [a hair-growth vitamin supplement].” Cyrus cut her hair last August, and six months later declared, “You will never see me with long hair again.” Well, like they always say, it’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind.
2. JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT hit the Pampers Love, Sleep & Play campaign launch red carpet in New York City last night rocking not just a growing baby bump, the mom-to-be also debuted a new ‘do. J. Love went a shade darker, chopped off some length, and added blunt bangs to the mix. Below is what she looked like in February, and here’s what she looks like now: (PHOTO) (PHOTO)
3. I am so digging the blown-out hair LADY GAGA stepped out in yesterday. I personally find it “Applause” worthy. Hi-Yo! See what I did there? (PHOTO)
(BACK IN THE DAY) CELEBRITIES BEHAVING BADLY – DAVID CASSIDY: Remember “Partridge Family” heartthrob DAVID CASSIDY? He was pulled over near Albany, New York yesterday morning on suspicion of DUI and, get this; when he noticed the cop’s name was Tom Jones, he actually asked the cop – and I quote — “What’s new, pussycat?” Look, I’m all about using humor to relieve tension, but I’m not sure a drunk driving stop is the appropriate time. Anyways … because Cassidy was arrested for DUI almost three years ago in Florida, he’s now facing felony drunk driving.
