Hollywood Dirt: Lindsay Lohan & Russell Brand in Trouble with the Law, Celebrity Cellulite + More
CELEBRITIES IN TROUBLE – LINDSAY LOHAN: A hookah lounge manager claims LINDSAY LOHAN grazed him with her Porsche early yesterday morning and then fled the scene. Word is Lindsay tried to get out of a tight spot and allegedly grazed a car belonging to the manager of a nearby hookah lounge — as well as the guy’s knee according to some reports — then peeled out.
Cops were called, but a police spokesman told “People” magazine that the man told them there was no injury to his knee or his vehicle, so they left and closed the case. Witnesses at the scene also told TMZ the guy wasn’t injured. Then the guy found out who Lindsay was, and things quickly changed. He suddenly developed an injury, went to the emergency room, hired an attorney and now plans to file a police report, which could re-open the case.
Linds hit up Twitter to deny the allegations, calling the guy’s accusations a “complete lie” and “absurd.” She tweeted, “I’ve been at community service. Last night, I attempted to wish a friend happy birthday, which I didn’t even get to do because I was freaked out by all of the paparazzi.” If Lindsay didn’t do anything wrong, though, this is interesting: She was caught on camera switching places with her friend after the incident. Wait, what???!!! Are you telling me Lindsay may not be holding herself accountable for her own actions? Well, NOW I’ve heard everything!
TMZ posted a picture of Lindsay in the driver’s seat at the scene of the accident, parked near two police cars. In the video, you can see Lindsay jump into the passengers seat and her friend get behind the wheel. In Lindsay’s defense, it’s not clear if they were trying to pull one over the cops or if Lohan was just too traumatized to drive after the incident.
BABY POOP – JESSICA SIMPSON’S BABY NAME REVEALED: “In Touch Weekly” may have spoiled the surprise of JESSICA SIMPSON’S daughter’s name. Supposedly a “family friend” told them her name will be Maxwell.
In an interview in this month’s “Elle” magazine, Jessica announced she and fiancé Eric Johnson were expecting a baby girl, and while she wouldn’t reveal the name they had chosen for the child she did say it was ‘non-traditional’ and that “when people hear it, they’ll know why.’ Well, Maxwell is baby-daddy ERIC JOHNSON’S middle name, and his grandmother’s maiden name.
Want more proof that “In Touch” may be onto something? Jessica has been wearing a necklace with a diamond “M” pendant, and has admitted that it stands for the baby’s first initial.
CELEBRITIES IN TROUBLE – ARREST WARRANT ISSUED FOR RUSSELL BRAND: TMZ has learned that New Orleans police have officially issued a misdemeanor warrant for RUSSELL BRAND’S arrest following his run-in with a photog on Monday. Brand is accused of grabbing the paparazzo’s iPhone and hurling it through the window of a nearby building. Although Russell has not commented on the arrest warrant, he did tweet his reason for the grab and smash. Quote: “Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iPhone irreverently. What I did was a tribute to his memory.”
UPDATE – ASHLEY JUDD IN DENIAL: ASHLEY JUDD’S rep has responded to Internet speculation that Judd has been injecting gunk into her face in an effort to beat back the ravages of time. The rumors started after Ashley appeared on a Canadian talk show earlier this week, and her face appeared to be puffier than usual.
“For the record,” Judd’s rep told E! News. “Ashley has been battling an ongoing, serious sinus infection and flu. Therefore, Ashley has been on a heavy dose of medication to overcome it so she could get on a plane and travel…to fulfill her commitments.”
“This may have contributed to her face appearing ‘puffy’.” He then issues this challenge: “Anyone who is truly paying attention and not looking to perpetuate a ridiculous story can look online further at photos of her last night during an Apple Store event in NYC and see for themselves that there is zero sign of plastic surgery, puffiness, fillers, etc.”
I couldn’t find any photos of her at the event her rep cited, but I did find these from a visit she made to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime at the United Nations in New York City yesterday …
My take? If she DID get work done, she needs to ask for her money back!

LEAH REMINI SHOWS US HER TWEETS – SAYS SHARON OSBOURNE GOT HER FIRED: It’s on between LEAH REMINI and SHARON OSBOURNE!!! This after Remini hit up Twitter to break her silence about her and Holly Robinson Peete’s departure from ‘The Talk’ last summer. Leah says it was co-host Osbourne who got them fired. The former King of Queens star tweets, “Sharon thought me and Holly were ‘ghetto.’ We were not funny, awkward and didn’t know ourselves. She has the power that was given to her.”
Sharon took to Twitter herself to deny Leah’s take, writing “In response to Leah Remini’s continuous comments that I had her fired from The Talk, let me just go on the record to say I had absolutely nothing to do with her departure from the show and have no idea why she continues to take to Twitter to spread this false gossip.”
To which Leah replied, quote, “If someone wants me to stop, they should call a lawyer and tell them what I am NOT telling the truth about. We can go from there.”
