Russell Crowe has said he’s turning over a new leaf now that he’s a hubby and dad-to-be. Maybe he meant a new fig leaf.
The “Master and Commander” star is pictured in the German tabloid Bild visiting a Hamburg strip club called Dollhouse. Crowe is front and center at the club (in Germany, they’re called table dances), inches away from a scantily clad, leggy blonde. Crowe’s very pregnant wife, curiously, was nowhere to be seen.
According to a translation sent by a helpful Scoop reader, Crowe’s four body guards “flipped” when they saw the camera and offered a lot of money for the pictures.
Crowe’s rep didn’t return repeated calls for comment.
Michael Jackson can breathe a little easier.
Jacqueline Stallone, Sylvester’s psychic mom, says the King of Pop is innocent of all charges and will walk. Stallone correctly called Arnold Schwarzenegger’s victorious bid for governorship of California early on, so the Scoop called to get her take on Jackson’s fate.
“He will get off,” Stallone predicted. “He is totally innocent. . . . He’s going to walk free. I got a flash. It so happens I know the family, but that doesn’t (influence) my call on this. You’re going to find out that this is the biggest frame up that ever happened. People say his career is over. They’re wrong. Because of this frame up, no one is going to believe the earlier charges were a frame up too, and he’s going to come out of this stronger than ever. This all came to me like a lightning bolt.”
