Hollywood Dirt: Mariah + JLo Feuding & the Pics Beyonce’s Publicist Doesn’t Want You to See + More
COULD BE TRUE, COULD BE CRAP – MARIAH FEUDING WITH J.LO OVER NICKI: They are both known divas so it’s not much of a surprise to learn that MARIAH CAREY and JENNIFER LOPEZ didn’t like each other.
Well, according to The National Enquirer, they don’t. Mariah is particularly furious at J.Lo because she’s supposedly been secretly coaching Carey’s “American Idol” nemesis NICKI MINAJ — with on emphasis on how to outshine Mimi on the panel. “Jennifer is instructing Nicki on everything, from how to treat contestants to what to wear,” says the tab’s un-named source. “Mariah was so upset she called Jennifer directly and told her to butt out!”
Apparently Mariah and J.Lo have been at odds for years. “It boils down to Mariah having always viewed Jennifer as a sub-par singer and actress,” said the source. “And J.Lo thinks Mariah is stuck-up, and has poked fun at her weight struggles,” continues the source before ending with this dramatic declaration: “Mariah and Jennifer are now archenemies.”
THE PICTURES BEYONCE’S PUBLICIST DOESN’T WANT YOU TO SEE: After BEYONCÉ’S Super Bowl performance, the website Buzzfeed did what just about every celebrity type website did; posted some photos. For whatever reason, her publicist singled them out and according to the website, called them and asked them to remove seven of them, because they were, quote, “unflattering”.
Now you want to see them, don’t you? Of course you do. Here you go …

UPDATE – CRUISE SHIP EMPLOYEE’S GAY SEXUAL ASSAULT SUIT AGAINST JOHN TRAVOLTA DROPPED: JOHN TRAVOLTA is three-for-three in his gay sexual assault cases. The former cruise ship staffer who claimed Travolta gave him an unwelcome, naked hug has dropped his lawsuit. This comes just days after a federal judge denied Travolta’s request to force the matter into private arbitration — a decision that cleared the way for a public trial and a possible outing of John’s sexual preferences.
Fabian Zanzi claimed in a lawsuit filed last June that Travolta came on to him in 2009 after he delivered a room service meal to him aboard a Royal Caribbean ship. According to the complaint, “Travolta forced his naked person and his erect penis against plaintiff’s person causing plaintiff to experience pain, shock, embarrassment, distress and fear.” He also said Travolta offered him $12,000 for sex. Zanzi’s claim followed sexual battery lawsuits filed by masseurs in Beverly Hills and Atlanta last year. Both those men eventually dropped their cases against the Travolta, too. No rea$on for the dismi$$al wa$ given.
MARIO LOPEZ SHOWS US HIS CHISELED PHYSIQUE PICS: MARIO LOPEZ lost his Super Bowl bet with “Extra” co-host MARIA MENOUNOS and so had to streak in nothing but a Baltimore Ravens helmet, purple briefs and matching sneakers.
LADY GAGA’S TOUR RIDER INCLUDES MANNEQUINS WITH PINK HAIR DOWN THERE: A LADY GAGA tour rider has hit the Internet, and, not surprisingly, she makes a lot of odd requests — like that her dressing room include a, quote, “mannequin with puffy pink pubic hair.” Why does Lady Gaga need a mannequin with pink pubic fur? I don’t know, but, honestly, I’d rather not know.
Gaga also apparently likes to stay regular because her rider also asks for bran flake cereal, whole wheat bread, and “six containers of Activia.” You know, the yogurt JAMIE LEE CURTIS says makes you poop.
CELEBRITIES IN TROUBLE – L.A. D.A. SEEKS TO VIOLATE CHRIS BROWN’S PROBATION: CHRIS BROWN may have dodged one legal bullet when singer Frank Ocean last week decided not to pursue charges in connection with their parking lot brawl, but he is currently in the cross-hairs of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office.
TMZ reports the D.A. has filed legal documents alleging Brown has violated his probation in connection with the RIHANNA beat down by submitting false community service records. The D.A. believes there was no way Chris could have completed all the community service he claimed to have done because he was out of the country performing.
They argue that in at least one case, Brown said he was picking up garbage in Virginia, when he was actually flying to Cancun on a private jet. The D.A. calls Chris’ documentation “at best sloppy…and at worst fraudulent reporting.” He wants the judge to reject Chris’ community service and make him fulfill his obligations in Los Angeles.
KRIS HUMPHRIES FIGHTS TO DELAY DIVORCE: A pregnant KIM KARDASHIAN is trying to speed up the trial date her divorce from KRIS HUMPHIRES, but the NBA baller says he ain’t got no time for that — his NBA schedule won’t make him available until mid May.
Kris filed legal papers yesterday (Tuesday) saying he doesn’t understand the urgency for a quick divorce, and he shouldn’t have to rush just because Kim got pregnant. “What is really going on here is that an ‘urgency’ in the form of an apparently unplanned pregnancy…is [being] perceived by [Kim] as an opportunity to gain a litigation advantage by trying to force this court to prematurely set this matter for trial,” Kris’ lawyer states in the docs.
TMZ expects the judge to set the divorce trial for March.
COVER SHOT – PINK POSES FOR REDBOOK: Despite having people in her past tell her she would never be pretty enough, PINK is on the cover of the March issue of Redbook.
“A ‘girl like me’ is someone who doesn’t rest on her looks, who has had people tell me from day one, ‘You’re never going to get magazine covers because you are not pretty enough.’ I’m totally comfortable with that,” Pink says in the accompanying interview. “I know my strong points,” she adds, “I work hard, I have talent, I’m funny and I’m a good person.”
