Hollywood Dirt: Lady Gaga’s Engagement Photo, Travolta Accuser Claims Oopsie & More
IS LADY GAGA ENGAGED???!!!: A photo that went online over the weekend had many wondering if LADY GAGA had done an about face and was suddently engaged to be married. Despite a photo that seems to say to the contrary, LADY GAGA is not -- I repeat -- not engaged. Photographer and close friend Terry Richardson posted a photo Saturday of Gaga sporting a huge rock with the caption, "Gaga showing off her new engagement ring!" Sources say it's just a ring and Gaga is not engaged to anyone. Last we heard, she and boyfriend Taylor Kinney had broken up.
JOHN TRAVOLTA ACCUSER CHANGES STORY: Now that JOHN TRAVOLTA has offered up proof he wasn’t in Los Angeles on January 16th, the day John Doe #1 claimed he was sexually assaulted by the actor, the plaintiff has changed his story. According to Radaronline, John Doe #1 now says he got the date incorrect, but still insists the attack happened.
“It was a miscalculation,” claims a source, who adds that the alleged victim says the incident occurred on an earlier date, and that the lawsuit will “likely be amended.” But it looks as though John Doe #1’s case is falling apart. Radaronline also reports that on Friday the lawyer he initially hired stopped handling his case.
Meanwhile ... a third man has come forward claiming he was sexually harassed. Chilean-born Fabian Zanzi claims that while working on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship back in 2009, Travolta offered him $12,000 to have sex with him. Travolta's lawyer continues to deny all the claims.
JESSICA SIMPSON SELLS FIRST BABY PICS FOR $800K: JESSICA SIMPSON is starting to cash in on the birth of her daughter. People magazine will reportedly pay the star $800,000 to publish exclusive photos of Maxwell Drew Johnson. By comparison, NICOLE RICHIE got $1 million for her baby pics, JENNIFER LOPEZ recieved $6 million for photos of her twins, while ANGELINA JOLIE raked in a whopping $11 million for photos of her twins.
Word on the street is there wasn’t even a bidding war for the shots. People was supposedly the only magazine who wanted them. (--And if this recent tweet of hers is any indication, I'm betting at least one of the baby pics will feature Maxwell in a headband.)
