Reports are that more than one patron at a Thousand Oaks country club has taunted Bruce Jenner over his changing appearance. Sources say one golfer hurled insults at Bruce on the green, yelling, "How's your d**k?" Jenner kept his cool and laughed off the jeer. He supposedly pointed to his crotch, saying, "It's right here. It hasn't worked in 20 years." Another bully heckled the former Olympian in the locker room, threatening to cut off his hair. Insiders say Bruce continues to golf at the club religiously and that most members are warm and kind to him. Jenner stepped out with hot pink nails this week, fueling speculation that he's seeking gender reassignment, however, his camp continues to deny those rumors. In other Bruce news, he celebrated his 65th birthday on Wednesday with the Kardashian-Jenner sisters in Malibu.

 
Death Row Records co-founder Suge Knight was arrested Wednesday and is facing life in prison following a run-in with a paparazzo last month. According to a Los Angeles County press release, Knight was with comedian Katt Williams outside a Los Angeles studio in September when they allegedly stole an "independent celebrity photographer's" camera. Williams was arrested Wednesday when he showed up in court for a separate assault case, and police found Knight in Las Vegas later that day. The District Attorney's office announced in a statement that he could face 30 years to life in prison if found guilty due to his prior convictions. Williams could serve up to seven years. TMZ spoke with Knight's people, who claim that he and Williams didn't steal anything, but were simply trying to prevent the photographer from filming Knight's 4-year-old son.
 
A mother in the US has petitioned Toys 'R' Us to pull the Kardashians' kids fashion line from sale because she doesn't want her child to grow up to be a sex tape star. Amie Logan of Roeland Park, Kanas set up the Change.org petition to urge the company to stop selling the line from its Toys 'R' Us and Babies 'R' Us stores across the US. "I don't want my child to grow up to be a Sex Tape star," Ms Logan said in her petition. "You pulled the Breaking Bad toys because they promoted Drug use. You should pull this clothing line because it promotes bad behavior as well. The madness has to stop. If the toys are damaging so is the clothing." The petition has been signed by more than 1400 supporters, many of whom felt strongly about removing the brand from sale. 
 
Miley Cyrus spent $500,000 at Wednesday's star-studded AmfAR Gala in Los Angeles, bidding $300,000 on a print of a naked woman by famed photographer Ryan McGinley and donating another $200,000 to the AIDS research organization. "I'm a little drunk. That's why I'm a half million deep," said Cyrus when she later took the stage. "If I'm going to have a voice I would like to start an open dialogue about prevention and awareness and how people in the world have been affected by HIV and AIDS. Hopefully, I could break down people's walls that have been built up around sexuality." She added, "I'm obviously not too embarrassed to talk about these things, especially with young people." In another memorable moment, Gwyneth Paltrow introduced her estranged husband Chris Martin, who gave a surprise performance with his Coldplay colleague Jonny Buckland. Paltrow called Martin the "father of the year."
 
Many of Tim Cook's colleagues already knew he was gay, but the Apple CEO decided to tell the world at large when he realized that "my desire for personal privacy has been holding me back from doing something more important," he writes in a column in Bloomberg Businessweek. "While I have never denied my sexuality, I haven't publicly acknowledged it either, until now. So let me be clear: I'm proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me." And with America moving toward marriage equality even as discriminatory laws still exist, Cook wanted to come out publicly. "If hearing that the CEO of Apple is gay can help someone struggling to come to terms with who he or she is, or bring comfort to anyone who feels alone, or inspire people to insist on their equality, then it's worth the trade-off with my own privacy."

Jessica Biel MIGHT BE pregnant with her first child, with her husband, Justin Timberlake, which apparently is cause for everyone to lose their ever-loving minds. Rumors of Biel's pregnancy have been a swirlin' over the past few weeks due to a photo of Mrs. Timberlake and a disco ball (that is not a double entendre). Sources say she  is three months pregnant and the baby is due in April. Keep in mind that Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake have confirmed nothing so….see the pics and be the judge HERE.

           
Wait, Lindsay Lohan may be dating….. Tom Cruise?? Tom Cruise, 52, and Lindsay Lohan, 28, are both currently in London, and as they explore the city, they have been exploring each other, according to a shocking new report! If the pairing seems odd, you’re not alone. However, they’ve been linked before; she auditioned in 2005 for a role opposite Tom in Mission Impossible: III when she was just 18. There were claims that the audition was actually a cover for a girlfriend audition, and that Katie Holmes, 35, ended up winning the “part.” Well, alright.
 
 Jennifer Lawrence ‘blindsided’ Chris Martin by breaking up with him leaving him “sad.” Sources say Martin was too intense for the Oscar-winning actress and he wanted to spend all his free time with her. The sources added Jennifer said Chris is an all or nothing kind of guy, so she chose nothing. He was completely blindsided, he was really sad about it. An insider told People mag, Lawrence “was tired of the spotlight on their relationship and she also thought that Chris and Gwyneth were a little too close for comfort. It was an odd situation for her.”
 
Taylor Swift surprised everybody during an appearance on ‘The View’ when she announced that all proceeds from her hit single “Welcome to New York” will go to the city’s public education system. Taylor is now a New Yorker. She said, “I love it here. I love it so much ... I don’t think I told anybody this before, but the fans were wonderful enough to make it (Welcome to NY) No. 1 on iTunes. It’s selling really well — which is good, because I’m donating all of my proceeds to New York City public schools.” No word on how much money New York might reap, but city officials said they were thrilled by Swift’s donation news. See the video HERE.

BTW…Billboard is predicting that Taylor’s "1989" album will likely sell at least a million copies in its first week—and if that happens, Swift will become the first act ever to pull off having 3 consecutive albums to sell more than a million copies during its debut week. It would also be just the 19th album to ever hit the million mark in one week since Nielsen started tracking sales in 1991.
 
Oh...and you should probably see Taylor imitate her cats on National Cat Day. 

A guy from Toledo got an incredible surprise at his 30th birthday party… Kid Rock showed up to celebrate with him. The birthday boy, who has Down Syndrome, is a huge Kid Rock fan. In August, he posted a video to YouTube showing his Kid Rock shirts, posters and other memorabilia, and inviting the Detroit rocker to his birthday party. Dan's friends and family then took to social media to get the word out and convince Kid Rock to show up – and it worked. Kid Rock stopped by, and he didn't come empty handed. He gave the birthday boy a bunch of memorabilia and told him that if he’s good to his family and friends, he’ll get free tickets to every Kid Rock concert.  See pics and read more HERE.

First, it was the Breaking Bad dolls with the fake meth that got yanked from Toys R Us when a mom started a petition, and now another mom is on a mission to get the Kardashians’ kids clothing line from the chain. A mom in Roeland Park, Kansas started the petition saying she doesn’t want her kid to grow up to be a sex tape star. The petition already has over 1,000 signatures so far.
 
Jennifer Lopez writes in her upcoming memoir, "True Love", she's felt abused in some of her past relationships. She said, "I've never gotten a black eye or a busted lip, but I've felt abused in one way or another: mentally, emotionally, verbally." J.Lo's book describes the ups and downs of her love life, as well as the reasons behind her 2011 split from Marc Anthony, the father of her 6-year-old twins. This wasn't the book she planned to write, and she explained, "It started out as fan book, a diary of the years I went on tour, but it turned into something else.” She claims that her ex, Anthony, is supportive of her and her new book, and was surprised to learn about her experiences when he read it.

Mama June Shannon has a history of dating child sex offenders. Michael Anthony Ford, who is her daughter Chubbs' biological father, was incarcerated for two years in 2005 (shortly after his split with June) for "the sexual exploitation of a child over the internet." He is still on the sex offender registry, is back behind bars for child abandonment and is likely to be the subject of more investigation now that Child Protective Services has opened a case on the family. Despite reports that Honey Boo Boo's father, Sugar Bear, was planning to file for full custody of Alana, he's decided against it due to the fact that his life right now is not particularly stable and a 9-year-old is a lot of responsibility. He's visiting his daughter daily and is unhappy that Mama June is back together with Mark McDaniel, especially because she allegedly refused to delete McDaniel's pictures off her phone when she and Sugar Bear were together.


 Amanda Bynes' parents have reportedly obtained a new conservatorship in the wake of the actress' latest troubling actions.

She is currently involuntarily hospitalized for psychiatric care after this rash of erratic behavior.

 Tom Hanks is proving yet again to be one of the coolest celebrities on the planet.  In a new post on Humans of New York, a cab driver shared a memorable experience driving Hanks. The cabbie said he didn’t recognize him because he had a cap pulled way down, but then recognized his voice. He said, “ when we get to a light, I turn to him, and I look him in the eye, and I scream: ‘WIIIIIIILLLSSSSSOOOOOOON!!!' And that really got him. He started laughing hard."  So then Tom noticed the cabbie was wearing a Ferrari shirt and hat, and started calling him Mr. Ferrari. They chatted the whole way, and took a pic before Tom got out.  Then, the cabbie started picking up random people that knew Tom, and told them the story telling them, “Tell Mr. Hanks that Mr. Ferrari says hi!”  That got back to him…so then Tom texted the cabbie and invited him to his Broadway play. "So I bring my lady to the show, and we get to go backstage and everything, and after the show, we're waiting for him in his dressing room, and he walks in and screams: 'Mr. Ferrari!' Can you believe that story?" he shared. "And you wanna know the craziest thing? The name of his show was 'Lucky Guy.' How crazy is that? Cause that was me. A lucky guy!"  See the pic and read more HERE.

Kim Kardashian talked to ES Magazine and said, "I was saying that earlier to my friends, ‘I wonder what [North's] first job is gonna be.' And they were like, ‘What? She's gonna have a job?' and I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? Of course she is'. She will have to work for what she wants." "Maybe she'll be a designer. Who knows? It's too early to tell."
 
Still from the If You Care file: Nick Cannon has signed on for a sequel to his 2002 marching band-themed movie, “Drumline.”  His character, Devon Miles, will now be a mentor for the new class. You’re welcome. BTW…rumor has it he’s locked in a bitter custody battle with Mariah Carey…over their 8 dogs.  Thanks to a prenup…everything involving property and the kids is worked out, except the dogs. 


 

Oh...and Justin Bieber wants you to know he's good at hockey.  The hashtags are OUT OF CONTROL on this little video.  He claims he's #20...


FYI…just know that every week, Britney Spears is putting $1 million in the bank.  She got a raise from $310,000 a show to $475,000 a show for her Las Vegas residency. That puts her just a thousand bucks a concert behind Celine Dion. Planet Hollywood was blown away by ticket sales, which they said broke Vegas records. So Britney’s manager went back to the bargaining table 50 shows into the original deal. In total, including her side projects, sources say Spears is getting around $1 million deposited in her account weekly.
 
Justin Timberlake is winding down his 20/20 Experience world tour, announcing that the final two shows will take place on Jan. 1 and Jan. 2 at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena and be filmed by Jonathan Demme. Jonathan was the guy who directed "The Silence of the Lambs". No word on exact details of the production yet, but we’re guessing some sort of DVD package will be made available.
Speaking of Justin...he helped out with a marriage proposal when he was here in concert last year.  Now, Lady Gaga is getting in the public-proposal-at-a-concert-game with a gay couple.  BTW...Gaga just bought a $23 million dollar mansion in Malibu that has a BAT CAVE.

Speaking of rad new pads...Jennifer Lawrence has a gorgeous new house for $7 million. See the pics HERE.
 
Photos of Poison rehearsing together for a private show in Southern California were posted on Bretmichaels.com. A posting on the site read, “So far no fist fights, sounds great and feels great. Maybe a reunion in 2015…”  Nothing’s been confirmed so far.



Kesha said under oath in 2011 that she had not had sexy time with Dr. Luke, the producer she now accuses of repeated sexual assault and abuse. Last week, Kesha and Dr. Luke sued each other. She alleges that he drugged and took advantage of her amid systemic, years-long abuse as the two collaborated professionally. He says she's making it all up in a bid to get out of her contract. Now a judge has unsealed an unrelated 2011 deposition in which Kesha is asked whether Dr. Luke ever gave her a "roofie," and whether the two ever had an "intimate relationship." Kesha says no to both questions. On Tuesday, Dr. Luke's legal team asked the judge to allow the deposition to be used in the current lawsuits, despite the protests of Kesha's attorney. He says Kesha lied in the 2011 deposition because "Luke walked Kesha down the beach and threatened to destroy Kesha's life and the lives of her family if she didn't cover up his sexual assaults."
 
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have received an apology and retraction from the publishers of Heat magazine. Earlier this month, they said that they were suing after an article was published under the headlines "Justin Timberlake gets flirty with another woman", "It is not his wife!" and "The flirty photos that rocked Justin and Jessica's marriage". Yesterday, a statement given before the High Court in Dublin read in part: "The Defendant accepts that the article was false and withdraws any inferences that questioned the state of Justin and Jessica's marriage. The Defendant regrets any embarrassment caused to the couple and unreservedly apologizes to them." Meanwhile, a statement released from the couple said they were satisfied with the apology, "...but will not hesitate to take similar legal action if false allegations regarding the state of their marriage are repeated."
 
Speaking of heat…Toys R Us decides to pull Breaking Bad toys from shelves after complaints.

Last week on The Voice, Louisville’s Allison Bray won the battles for Team Blake and Fernanda Bosch was sent home.  It's on again tonight!

 
A track containing nothing but eight seconds of white noise was accidentally released under the album's 1989 name on Tuesday morning…. And it shot to the top of Canada's iTunes chart almost immediately. The release of the audio file, entitled "Track 3," was reportedly the result of an iTunes glitch — but that didn't stop eager fans from shelling out $1.29 to download the song. 
 
Speaking of Taylor...she does a little parody of her song "Shake It Off" with Jamie Oliver..."Bake It Off".

Jennifer Lopez is in the final talks for a deal to perform in Las Vegas ... and according TMZ -- she'll rake inmore per show than Britney Spears. Jennifer is being offered $350,000 per show at The Axis, Planet Hollywood, the same place Britney is performing. Britney is making $310K a show. But Britney will ultimately score more than J.Lo because her contract provides she'll do 96 shows over 2 years. J.Lo will do 72 shows, 3 times a week for 24 weeks over a 1 or 2 year period -- the contract leaves that open. Britney is guaranteed $29,760,000 for the 2-year run. J.Lo will be guaranteed $26,383,326.
 


Wanna see Jamie Foxx sweat? Tina Knowles put him in a serious bind by putting her ass dangerously close to his crotch while dancing. Mama Knowles jumped on stage during Jamie's performance at the Angel Ball in NYC and decided to back, back, back it up.
And that's when Jamie starts sweating. His options:
A: Totally go for it and give Beyonce's mom the ride dance of her life
B: Politely back away because that's Jay Z's mother-in-law.

He chose B.
 

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future next year, Universal Pictures will re-release the 1985 time-travel classic with live orchestration. The film will be screened in various venues around the world without the score, so that a live orchestra could perform Alan Silvestri's Academy Award–nominated music. The orchestra will also perform 15 minutes of new music that the composer wrote specifically for the engagements. The first performance of Back to the Future with live orchestration will take place in May 2015 in Lucerne, Switzerland. No other screening dates or details have yet been announced.  Speaking of that…did you hear about the Kickstarter hover board?  It’s kind of like the one Marty McFly rode in the movie…sort of.  And cost $10,000.  If you pitch in $100, you can ride a prototype for 5 minutes.  Pitch in $1,000 and get a privately coached one-hour ride.  Or…give them $10,000 and get one to keep in May 21, 2015.
 
Renee Zellweger looks like a completely different person with her super line-free forehead, altered brow and puffy face, although she has never admitted to getting surgery. She was photographed on the red carpet in Los Angeles on Monday night. One cosmetic surgeon who has never treated Renee said he believes she may have had an upper eye lift because the distance between the brow and her eye is much smaller than before.  She might have also had work done on her cheeks and lips.  So what does she think of the Internet noticing her new look? In a statement to PEOPLE, she says  "I'm glad folks think I look different! I'm living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I'm thrilled that perhaps it shows."  More HERE.
 
 BTW…Lionel Richie says he’s not Khloe Kardashian’s dad.  That was the latest rumor swirling around, and the fact that his 16-year-old daughter Sophie looks like Khloe added fuel to that fire.
 
BBTW… James Blunt is apologizing for his 2005 mega-hit "You're Beautiful".  He says it’s annoying. "[It] was force-fed down people's throats, and it became annoying, and then people start to associate the artist with the same word. I have a couple of over-emotional miserable songs that I'm known for, but I think it's turned that corner now."
 
BBBTW…Ed Sheeran was over it right after he wrote the song, “Don’t”…about ex Ellie Goulding cheating on his with Niall from One Direction.  Read more HERE.

Paralympian Oscar Pistorius is being sentenced to a maximum of five years in prison for shooting his model girlfriend to death through a bathroom door.  He was convicted of culpable homicide last month for the 2013 death of Reeva Steenkamp.  Pistorius says he fired the fatal shots because he believed there was an intruder in his home.  
 
Bryan Cranston has responded to the Florida woman trying to get Breaking Bad action figures removed from Toys "R" Us shelves, writing on Twitter that he's "so mad, I'm burning my Florida Mom action figure in protest." Last week, a mom started a petition to get the toys of store shelves saying it was inappropriate to have kids play with dolls that have lab beakers and gas masks “items one needs to make meth." The petition has nearly 3,000 signatures. Toys "R" Us released a statement saying that the figures "are carried in very limited quantities and the product packaging clearly notes that the items are intended for ages 15 and up."
 
Last weekend, University of Kentucky was kind enough to grant their #1 fan, Drake, a chance to warm up with the team before their Midnight Madness game. Drake went to put up a shot and caught nothing but air. No rim, no backboard. Just an air-ball. The internet is having a field day with pics and video.

Did just pretend to be a cleaner, and ninja'd my way into the @mileycyrus personal afterparty

A photo posted by Chillz (@chillzy) on


A 23-year-old Miley Cyrus superfan named Anthony Skinner snuck backstage after her show Friday in Sydney while disguised as a cleaner. Of course, you’ve got to Instagram a selfie with the neon yellow safety vest he wore to get past security. Skinner says he was in the arena's parking lot when he noticed a cleaner's storeroom door was open. "My mindset was 'See how far you can take this'," he said. "It wasn't planned at all. Everything just fell into place so perfectly." Skinner put his belongings into "a wheelie bin," which he then pushed past a security team he claims "didn't even look at me." The good thing is he actually worked to clean the venue for about 40 minutes. Finally, a security guard told him to stand in a doorway as they "surrounded" Cyrus so she could leave the venue safely. "My whole brain just emptied. I saw her and froze. All I could get out was 'Hey'. She looked at me, smiled and just kept walking."
 
Well…this is awkward.  David Arquette and fiancée Christina McLarty happened to have a fight in the middle of a busy street and it was caught on video. At one point, Christina can be seen running down Santa Monica Boulevard in her evening dress, pleading with Arquette, "Stop David, David, David stop. Come here, please!" Another segment shows David storming off, saying, he's "done, just like the last guy." They welcomed a son in April and got engaged in July.

 

Justin Bieber was reprimanded by the Vatican. Bieber reportedly took a private after-hours tour of Vatican City earlier this month, including visits to the Vatican Museums and the Papal Apartments. During the tour, the staff scolded him for kicking a soccer ball around the halls of the historic buildings. There's no official confirmation from the Vatican, but Bieber did recently post a picture to Instagram where he's holding a soccer ball at the Vatican.

Oh..and there may now be photographic proof that Selena Gomez and Orlando Bloom are now dating. Click HERE for the story and pics!
