Lindsay Lohan Prefers Jail Time to Rehab, Her Father Says

May 19, 2010 08:03:38 GMT


Lindsay Lohan's father is convinced the troubled actress would prefer jail time to rehab - and that's why she has jetted to the Cannes Film Festival in France just days before her probation hearing in Los Angeles. The "Mean Girls" star is due to appear before Judge Marsha Revel at Beverly Hills Courthouse and, according to reports, hasn't completed court-ordered alcohol education classes, as per the terms of her probation. The punishment stems from an incident in 2007 when she pleaded guilty to cocaine use and no contest to drink-driving and reckless driving charges.

As a result, Lohan could face a jail spell for testing the law, and her estranged father is convinced that's just what she wants. He tells X17online.com, "She thinks that three days in jail is better than 60 days in rehab and she's sadly mistaken. Lindsay doesn't realize how horrible it is to be in jail for one, two, three days or longer. It's something that would stick with her for the rest of her life and she doesn't need any more torment."

The end of "Lost" is numbered by days and a preview from the series finale has been released. "The end is a statement that can be both thrilling and bittersweet," the narrator says, adding that Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Hurley and Locke will be there for the finale farewell.

In order to tie all loose ends, creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have made a deal with ABC to extend it to two and a half hours instead of the original two hours. The finale is thus a five-and-a-half-hour event on May 23, beginning at 7 P.M. with "Lost: The Final Journey" and ending at 1 A.M. with "Jimmy Kimmel Live!: Aloha to Lost".

Courtney Love caused a scene while out on a date with her rumored new lover Andre Balazs - she blasted the tycoon for chatting to another woman, according to a U.S. report. The Hole rocker initially refuted reports she was dating the hotel magnate, who is Uma Thurman's ex-boyfriend, but recently fueled speculation in a leaked email, allegedly writing, "I'm in lurve. It's nice. Scary. I'm a great catch and he can be a bad boy but he loves me."

And the pair was reportedly very much a couple while on a night out in New York last week - until Love threw a tantrum over Balazs' flirting. A source tells the New York Daily News, "They came to the Boom Boom Room together late Thursday night and initially went their separate ways. At first, Courtney was chatting with a couple of guys about her music. But eventually, she and Andre snuck out to the smoking deck together and were hugging and being touchy. They both seemed very sweet and genuine."

Megan Fox Upset Over Nude Photo Leak


May 19, 2010 03:34:01 GMT


Megan Fox was fuming after naked photos of her on a movie set were leaked online in January - just months after a pal sold topless shots of her to the tabloids. A set insider photographed the brunette beauty in her underwear while she was filming a scene for upcoming movie "Passion Play", and the images surfaced on the Internet earlier this year.

Fox was furious over the incident - and admits she wouldn't hold back if she were to discover who released the snaps. She tells Allure magazine, "If I knew who took this picture, I would personally cause them harm - physical harm. I'm not a f**king reality TV star that's courting the paparazzi and wants my f**king picture taken all the time."

May 19, 2010 03:30:46 GMT


An auction of the jewels given to Anne Hathaway by her conman ex-lover Raffaello Follieri is free to go ahead after the actress refused to reclaim the gems. "The Devil Wears Prada" star's former boyfriend was jailed for four-and-a-half years in December 2008 after pleading guilty to 14 counts of wire fraud, conspiracy and money laundering.

Hathaway dumped the Italian businessman in June the same year just before his arrest for the scam, which saw him take more than $3.6 million from investment funds and real estate firms. During their romance, Follieri lavished gifts on his A-list lover, which Hathaway was forced to give up upon his trial so the goods could be used as evidence.
