Before Britney Spears got her life back on track, she rarely left the side of her then-boyfriend, paparazzo Adnan Ghalib. Some feared that the match-up was an attempt on the part of the lensman to take advantage of an embattled Britney. Given Adnan’s latest scheme, it looks like he’s out to prove his detractors right.
While speaking to the U.K.’s Heat magazine, Adnan admitted that he not only owns a sex tape featuring the “Toxic” singer, but he plans to sell it as soon as an acceptable offer comes along.
“There is such a tape, but I won’t discuss prices for hypothetical inquiries,” he said. “Unless there is a locked-in deal, I will go no further.”
Oh, and lest anyone suspect he’s out to exploit his ex — beyond peddling a skin flick for big bucks — Adnan also told Heat, “I am not interested in selling out any other details about Britney.”
What a guy!
Christina Applegate on the moment she ‘lost it’The gravity of her recent breast cancer diagnosis didn’t sink in immediately for Christina Applegate. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey set to air Tuesday, the actress opened up about her delayed reaction and the moment the situation really hit home.
“‘(The test) came back positive,’” Christina recalled her doctor telling her. “And I just — like, right now I'm sitting here shaking remembering that moment. As you guys know, you don't think it's gonna happen to me.”
The “Samantha Who?” star said she didn’t cry until after she made the difficult decision to have a radical double mastectomy.
“When I met with my doctor and I told him that was my decision and he brought the surgeon in and it was like the floodgates just opened up and I — I lost it,” she said.
Henry the Eighth he...isn't?Say it ain’t so!
According to a report in the Evening Herald, an Irish newspaper, “Tudors” star Jonathan Rhys Meyers plans to step down from the throne early and leave his role as history’s favorite head-lopper behind.
“Jonathan has decided he's going to quit ‘The Tudors,’” an insider told the paper. “He'll stay around to record the next season but he won't be doing any more after that. He's really enjoyed playing King Henry VIII and having the opportunity to work in Ireland again, but he feels it's time to go.”
At press time, there was no word on how the Showtime series would deal with the loss of its main character if Rhys Meyers did indeed leave the show.
Dish on the flyWhen Prince, now a devoted Jehovah’s Witness, goes door-to-door to spread the good news, he’d prefer his fans to focus on the latest copy of the Watchtower instead of him. “Sometimes fans freak out," he told USA Today. “It might be a shock to see me, but that's no reason for people to act crazy, and it doesn't give them license to chase me down the street.” … Janet Jackson enjoyed her boyfriend’s birthday bash at NYC’s Tenjune until he gave her a good reason to hightail it. It seems the party got a bit much for birthday boy Jermaine Dupri, who according to a Page Six spywitness, “vomited in Janet's lap.” Ew! The source added, “Ms. Jackson bolted out of the scene and sped off in her chauffeured Maybach.”
