Hollywood Dirt: New Plot to Kill Justin Bieber Revealed, Katy Perry’s Pair Mistaken for Model’s Mounds + More
CONVICTED MURDERER REVEALS NEW PLOT TO KILL JUSTIN BIEBER: Remember the convicted murderer accused last year of masterminding a plot from withing the Las Cruces prison walls to castrate and kill JUSTIN BIEBER? Well, evidently he's not done trying to rid the world of The Beibs.
This time he wants to blow him up. Dana Martin sent a letter to an Albuquerque television station in which he describes his new plan to assassinate the Biebs. “I arranged for another hit man," Martin wrote from the Santa Fe jail he currently resides in. "This new hit man will place an explosive device…at a live performance, killing everyone onstage and quite a few in the audience.” Martin's been thrown into solitary while officials look into the threat.
TABLOID CLAIMS BIEBER HOOKED ON ‘DEADLY STREET DRUG’: Okay, so Justin Bieber had a few bad days in Britain and Portugal, but were they so bad he's now turned to a powerful cocktail of prescription cough syrup, Sprite and candy known as sizzurp to ease his woes? According to a Star insider, yes. Says the snitch, “He is smoking weed and drinking sizzurp nonstop… It’s gotten so bad that people are begging him to go to rehab.”
Despite what I'm sure are impeachable sources -- and yes, I'm being sarcastic -- one of Bieber's reps is denying the Star's "reporting." Well, actually what he said was, “Where do they come up with this s**t?”
KIM KARDASHIAN KHAOS - PRODUCER ADMITS PART OF REALITY SHOW WAS FAKE: KRIS HUMPHRIES' claim that his marriage to KIM KARDASHIAN was a publicity stunt may have gained some credibility. In court documents obtained by Life & Style magazine, "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" producer Russell Jay admitted in a deposition pertaining to the couple's divorce "that at least two scenes depicting Kris negatively were scripted, re-shot or edited."
Russell said Kim did not know when Kris was going to pop the question and "was completely surprised" by his bedroom proposal. However, she did not like her original reaction and asked, "Can we just like, have me come back in one more time and be, like, really surprised?" Russell also confirms reports from last year that Kim shot a scene with mom KRIS JENNER, in which she talked about her marriage struggles with the baller after she'd already filed for divorce in October 2011.
A source says tells the tab Humphries "feels vindicated," adding, "It's obvious they were trying to tarnish his reputation. This will prove how fake Kim and the show are." However ... TMZ insists that this actually sinks Kris's case. They point out that "since he proposed and she was surprised, it means it positively wasn't a grand scheme to dupe him," and also that "Kris clearly knew she re-shot her reaction, so no matter what, he was in on everything." Kim is set to appear in court on May 6th to defend herself against the allegations.
KATY PERRY’S PAIR MISTAKEN FOR TOPLESS MODEL’S MOUNDS: A super-sexy photograph of model Rosie Jones, known to many Brits as one of the topless models regularly featured in the UK tabloid The Sun, was mistaken by many in the Twitterverse as a pic of KATY PERRY and re-tweeted to millions. Jones tweeted yesterday,“Why does everyone keep tweeting this pic as katyperry? I’m flattered, but I’m not sure she would be!” You gotta admit, Jones does strike a resemblance to Perry, and they both share, well, ample similarities.
UPDATE - JANUARY JONES WAS THE REASON FOR THE MILEY/LIAM SPLIT ... OR WAS SHE?: By now, you've probably heard the rumor that MILEY CYRUS and LIAM HEMSWORTH are through. So what led to the breakup?
Well, so far there's not a consensus on the World Wide Web of Unverified Celebrity Gossip. Obviously, there's the rumor that Liam hooked up with JANUARY JONES last month.
Another source says it's a lifestyle thing. Quote, "She likes to party really hard and can be pretty wild. It became a problem for him." Yet another source says Miley suspected that Liam had a "wandering eye." And still another source says Liam isn't really down with Miley's new butch look.
Heck, the tabs and gossip sites can't even agree if they've even broken up. E! Online says they're not through just yet. A source told them, quote, "Miley and Liam have been a bit rocky, but are not giving up. They both want it to work."
JULIANNE HOUGH ROBBED!: JULIANNE HOUGH of 'Dancing With the Stars' fame was robbed while visiting a friend in Hollywood. Her Benz was broken into, and thieves reportedly found a goldmine -- jewelry TMZ says given to her by boyfriend RYAN SEACREST.
Ryan supposedly plunked down about $100,000 for the three pieces. TMZ reports there was no sign of forced entry into the Benz, so it's possible she left the car unlocked. Anyone know where LINDSAY LOHAN was that night? Hi-Yo! I keed, I keed!
TAYLOR SWIFT COVERS DON’T SELL: There’s no doubt TAYLOR SWIFT can sell records and concert tickets, but apparently there’s one thing she can’t sell – magazines. According to Women’s Wear Daily, magazines with Taylor on the cover didn’t sell as well as covers featuring stars like LAUREN CONRAD and VICTORIA BECKHAM.
For example, Taylor’s February Vogue sold 329,371 copies, which was just above the mag’s monthly average. Both LADY GAGA'S and ADELE'S cover sold more. Gaga's sold 602,000 while Adele’s March Vogue did over 410,000. In addition, Swift’s November Glamour sold 443,000 copies, which was less than both Conrad’s cover, which sold 500,000, and Beckham’s, which sold 482,000. Victoria I understand, but Lauren Conrad? Seriously?
