Hollywood Dirt: Watch Halle Berry and Her Fiancé Freak Out on the Paparazzi + Khloe Kardashian Denies Charity a Scam & More
HALLE BERRY FLIPS OUT ON PAPARAZZI: HALLE BERRY, her daughter Nahla and fiancé OLIVIER MARTINEZ were swarmed by paparazzi at LAX the other day and to say she and Olivier were not happy about it would be a huge understatement.
TMZ got video of Halle screaming at photographers, “What the f**k is wrong with you people,” and shoving one of them. When the guy asked Halle why she hit him, she said, quote, “There’s a child here. That’s why, you idiots!” Seconds later, though, Halle had to protect one of the idiot, er, I mean, photographer from Olivier, who had had enough, lost his cool and went into attack mode. Halle quickly grabbed him and pulled him inside the vehicle.
MAYER STAYS (SORT OF) QUIET ON PERRY SPLIT: Previously known for kissing-and-telling about past romantic relationships, JOHN MAYER has finally learned to stop talking about his relationships.
During an appearance on “Ellen” yesterday, Mayer revealed very few details but did confirm he and KATY PERRY are no longer a couple. Said Mayer, “It was a very private relationship going in. It was a private relationship during, and it’s a private relationship still.” After Ellen offered her support, he thanked her, but would not elaborate on what exactly went wrong. He did say that things between him and Katy were complicated and that, quote, “coupling is a tricky thing.”
UPDATE – LINDSAY LOHAN PREGNANCY ANNOUNCEMENT WAS APRIL FOOL’S DAY JOKE: LINDSAY LOHAN is late to everything, even April Fool’s Day. On Monday, LoHo posted the tweet “It’s Official. Pregnant.” Most suspected it was an April Fool’s Day joke, but because she posted it just past midnight east coast time, many also wondered if she might actually be telling the truth. After one tweeter responded with “Heaven help us” and 12,000 people re-tweeted his message in a matter of minutes, Lindsay, took down the tweet and replaced it with, “April Fools. Where’s everyone’s sense of humor?” Probably where you left yours, Missy.
Linds, by the way, is still in Brazil. She hit up one of the beaches there yesterday rocking a two piece … and leg bruises. Why does she always seem to have bruises on her legs? (PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO)
UPDATE – KHLOE KARDASHIAN DENIES LAMAR ODOM CHARITY A SCAM: As we told you yesterday, LAMAR ODOM started a charity in 2004 after losing his mother to cancer, but now that charity, Cathy’s Kids, is being criticized for not giving any money to cancer research.
According to ESPN, while Cathy’s Kids did set up two elite youth basketball travel teams, it has done nothing for cancer research. Of the $2.2 million raised, at least 60 percent went to the teams. Another chunk of the money went to the organization’s secretary, Jerry DeGregorio, who was Odom’s high school basketball coach and best man at his wedding to KHLOE KARDASHIAN.
Here’s what Lamar had to say when ESPN cornered him in the locker room after a game and asked him about it: “It’s my money.”
Khloe’s rep issued a statement denying any wrongdoing. ““The millions of dollars personally contributed by Lamar constituted more than 90 percent of the money raised by the foundation. All of the funds donated by Lamar and the other contributions to Cathy’s Kids were used for one of the foundation’s intended charitable purposes. Not one penny went to help Lamar personally or any member of his family. No charitable funds were misused, and the IRS has repeatedly given Cathy’s Kids a clean bill of health, confirming that there were no improprieties.”
But although Khloe, Lamar and their reps claim the charity did nothing wrong, the eBay page once dedicated to selling pre-owned items from the couple to benefit the charity has mysteriously removed all items for sale as of yesterday.

SNOOP DOGG, MARTHA STEWART BAKING BUDDIES?!: So, this is how SNOOP DOG/LION spends his free time? — baking brownies with MARTHA STEWART? Should Snoop be hanging with a convicted felon?
The two have long been rumored to be tight, but the other morning during a game of “Two Truths and a Lie” on the “Today” show, Martha confirmed it — albeit with tongue firmly planted in check. “Oh, yeah, I hang out with Snoop, he has time for me,” she said sarcastically. “We like to bake brownies together,” she added, “They are green, they’re green actually”
