So much for Paris Hilton’s recent claim that she’s giving up on men.
The crooning heiress is living with Brandon Davis, according to Life & Style weekly. Davis is the oil heir who introduced the phrase “fire crotch” to the public when his ramblings about Lindsay Lohan were caught on tape. Earlier this month, Hilton declared, “I’m not doing it with anyone [for a year]. I just want to concentrate on work.”
Davis has been living with Hilton at her Hollywood Hills home since leaving rehab in July, according to the mag. He went into rehab after his infamous "fire crotch" quote was made public, although earlier this month he climbed on stage in Miami during Hilton’s record launch and used the same phrase with regards to Lohan.
“His family is selling their home, so Brandon’s been shacking up with Paris at her place off the Sunset Strip,” an “insider” tells L&S. “All his clothes, his toiletries and even some of the artwork he owns.”

Here comes the princess bride
Beyoncé Knowles is pulling out all the stops for her wedding.
The “Dreamgirls” star is set to wed rap impresario Jay Z, and the lavish event will come with a $3 million price tag, according to the upcoming Star.
The former Destiny’s Child member is planning a late November wedding on the Caribbean island of Anguilla, reports the tab. Guests at the bash will dine on $300,000 worth of Beluga caviar as well as lobster and Italian truffles and will wash it down with $200 bottles of Dom Perignon. Knowles’ wedding dress will be modeled after Princess Diana’s, reports the Star, and among the guests invited are Oprah Winfrey and U.N. head Kofi Annan.
An impediment to the marriage had been Beyoncé’s manager father, Matthew Knowles, and his misgivings about the 36-year-old Jay Z’s relationship with his 24-year-old daughter, but Matthew Knowles has apparently come around and given the romance his blessing.
“Beyoncé’s telling friends it will be ‘the wedding to end all weddings,’” according to the source. “Beyoncé feels like she’s living a fairy tale so why shouldn’t her wedding be equally magical?”
Notes from all over
Is Ashlee Simpson Broadway Bound? The 21 year old singer has been offered the role of Roxie Hart in the U.S. and London casts of “Chicago,” according to Us. “She will probably choose London,” a source told the mag. “There is no confirmation at this time,” according to a rep for the musical. . . . R&B sensation Cassie has some serious detractors. Thousands of anti-Cassie folks have signed a petition they’re sending to the “Me & U” crooner’s label, Bad Boy Records. “We give her respect for trying, but her existence and presence to the music industry is becoming very annoying and pointless,” it reads. “She is NOT a performer at all,if she was it could have made up for her penguin moaning vocals.” ... At least one guy on this planet thinks that Kevin Federline looks cool : Britney Spears’ dad. In Touch Weekly reports that earlier this week, Jamie Spears, 54, hit the streets of Malibu wearing an outfit that looked like it came straight out of 28-year-old K-Fed’s closet.
