Hollywood Dirt: Nick Lachey Accused of Chocking Rival Team’s Fan, Rob Kardashian ‘Disgusted’ with Ex’s Cheating + More
CELEBRITIES IN TROUBLE – NICK LACHEY KICKED OUT OF STADIUM; ACCUSED OF CHOCKING RIVAL TEAM’S FAN: NICK LACHEY was kicked out of San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium Sunday over his intense devotion to his favorite team, the Cincinnati Bengals.
According to TMZ’s account of the incident, Lachey was escorted out of the stands after security deemed his trash talking had crossed the line. Nick claimed it was due to a, quote, “overzealous Chargers fan” who poked a finger in his face, but later hit up Twitter to clarify what happened. “For the record, i was not kicked out of the chargers game for excessive ‘trash talking’. no, that honor belonged to the guy in front of me!” He added, “i simply don’t appreciate someone turning around and putting their finger in my face. call me crazy, but that deserved a reaction.”
Today, more details are emerging about how exactly Nick reacted. TMZ is reporting that Lachey’s trash talking didn’t just turn nasty, it turned violent. Nick, they say, chocked the San Diego Chargers fan and called the guy’s wife a “f**king b*tch”
Video obtained by the gossip site shows Nick and his crew excessively poking fun of the Charger’s fan wearing the jersey of player from years gone by. That’s when the guy’s wife shot back at Nick, quote, “Well, he lasted longer than your boy band,” referring to the former footballers playing days. That’s when Nick reportedly flipped out and lunged at the Chargers fan, allegedly grabbing him by the throat and shoved him to the ground.
Nick’s rep tells TMZ the guy’s story has been greatly exaggerated. “It was nothing but a spirited debate between fans of opposing teams. At no point did Nick say anything derogatory to the man’s wife and anything to suggest the contrary is simply untrue.” Word is the Chargers fan plans to file a police report against Lachey. His hiring of Gloria Allred will soon follow, I’m sure.

SPLITSVILLE – POPULATION ROB KARDASHIAN: Did ROB KARDASHIAN call singer Rita Ora a slut? Sure sounds like it. Rob reportedly split from Ora over the weekend and then took to Twitter to disparage her reputation.
“She cheated on me with nearly 20 dudes while we were together, I wonder how many she will sleep with now that we are apart? But I mean 20?!!!,” he wrote. Then he added, “How can a woman who is so busy trying to start her own career have time to be with so many dudes while in a relationship?! I am actually disgusted.” And, yes, Kim Kardashian’s brother calling someone a whore IS irony. Rob deleted the Tweets after about 30 minutes, but of course, by then someone had grabbed them and shared them with the world.

QUOTE/UNQUOTE: “Seriously, Honey Boo Boo is the decay of Western civilization. That show is literally The. Worst. Thing. That’s. Ever. Happened.” — ADAM LEVINE, going off on the reality show sensation in an interview with GQ magazine.
He adds, “It’s complete f-cking ignorance and the most despicable way to treat your kids. F-ck those people. You can put that in the magazine: F-ck those idiots. They’re just the worst. Sorry, I’m so sensitive to that — like, I don’t know, man, it’s upsetting. Just to clarify, I said, ‘F-ck those people!’” Me thinks Adam does not redneck-anize.
