Justin Timberlake has been reported by Britain's "News of the World" that he and girlfriend Cameron Diaz are going to tie the knot this weekend at the very exclusive Grand Hotel Du Cap Ferrat in Nice, France, the exact place where they met at the Cannes film festival. The source of that report is mentioned to be an "aide" to Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, who claims that Ozzy and Sharon had to cancel plans to see their daughter Kelly's heavy metal band's gig in London Saturday because they are supposedly going to attend Justin and Cameron's wedding.

Though quick denials come from Diaz publicist Brad Cafarelli who points the report as "totally false," News of the World mentions that a hotel source says "The hotel is fully booked for a special event next weekend. They have booked the whole hotel." Also the NY Post grabbed the dreaded "no comment" from a Justin representative, which may strengthen the report.

11 days after they got engaged, actress Jennifer Garner and her fiance Ben Affleck now spark pregnancy reports after the beauty was photographed with a bulging stomach. According to celebrity experts, the bulging stomach isn't caused by Garner's over- eating or lack of exercise, since she famously commits herself to an exhausting health and fitness regime. To strengthen the rumors, an insider says "Jennifer was showing quite a big bump and she was walking very carefully. The bulge is out of proportion with the rest of her body, which is really toned.

May 04, 2005 02:27:14 GMT

Rapper Lil' Kim is facing a 20 years in prison after she's been sued by two singer-songwriters who claim she failed to compensate them for cowriting and appearing on tracks on her 2003 album "La Bella Mafia." Anthony Jeffries and Vincent Hart, both 23 years old, filed a legal lawsuit Monday in New York State Supreme Court claiming the rapper whose real name is Kimberly Jones to break a deal to pay them $15,000 each for contributing vocals to "The Beehive."

In the complaint the two men mentioned the rapper gave nothing for their work, except a piece of jewelry she said was worth $10,000, which she then demanded back "under a threat of physical violence." Moreover, the accusers said Lil' Kim also hired them at $400 per show and made more than 30 appearances at her concerts but were only paid for one. The suit, to add, also asserted Lil' Kim for failing to pay an addition sum of $10,000 each plus royalties for cowriting three songs on the disc: "Hold It Now," "The Jump Off" and "Can You Hear Me Now."
