Just as scandal-weary readers had a chance to completely forget that “Lost” star Matthew Fox was accused of cheating on his wife sometime after the Tiger Woods shocker but before Jesse James’ big reveal, Fox addressed the old rumor in a new interview with Playboy magazine.

When asked about his rumored romance with stripper Stefani Talbott, the actor insisted, “The story is not true,” before refusing to comment further on it.

“The subject of fidelity is very personal,” Fox said. “People definitely come after you for all kinds of crazy reasons, but I’ve always been fairly suspicious of people.”

As for his relationship with wife Margherita Ronchi, Fox stressed that he and the former model have a good thing going.

“Margherita and I have been best friends and best lovers,” Fox told the magazine. “She’s the love of my life. We have managed to both be intensely independent and maintain that strength in our relationship. I am a man, and I am an appreciator of women. At the same time, Margherita is the s---. I can honestly say we’re good together. We’ve been together for 23 years, so let’s leave it at that.”

Sheen’s shady disguise a joke The current cover of In Touch Weekly features actor Charlie Sheen donning what appears to be a very out-of-date, not to mention out-of-season, unibomber-sketch Halloween costume. Sheen can be seen teaming his gray hoodie with dark shades and a dime-store fake moustache in an apparent effort to disguise his appearance.

Why hide? The magazine reported Sheen went incognito for a romantic meeting with lingerie model and escort Angelina Tracy.

Not quite so, according to Sheen’s PR peep. While publicist Stan Rosenfield doesn’t deny the “Two and a Half Men” star sported the odd look, Rosenfield told E! Online there was no attempt to deceive.

“The woman in question is the sister of one of Sheen's campmates, and Sheen was only responding to a 12th-step call,” Rosenfield explained. “Since Sheen knew he was being followed and how this would look, he wore the mustache in a tongue-in-cheek disguise gesture.”


Mel Gibson breaks up with girlfriendActor-director Mel Gibson and girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva have gone their separate ways. A report in the National Enquirer claimed Gibson decided to end his relationship with the Russian musician following a huge fight.

An insider alleged Grigorieva accused Gibson of cheating on her, felt growing frustration over his refusal to marry her and eventually lost her temper when his lack of attention toward their 6-month-old daughter, Lucia, became too much. That, according to the insider, was all it took for Gibson to say “goodbye.”

The split comes just one year after Gibson’s wife of 29 years, Robyn Gibson, filed for the divorce.

Dish on the fly While headlining a census rally in Richmond, Va., Chris Brown enjoyed encouraging locals to get counted. “Being able to come out here and then stress the importance of the census is great, because you get to actually be like, your doing a show but also creating a positive image,” Brown told Richmond’s WWBT. But it seems the singer’s newfound enthusiasm for the census hasn’t quite reached his own mailbox. “I haven’t done mine yet, because actually, I was unaware of it in the beginning, too. I was like, 'I'm not too sure what the census is.' Then I got a full briefing.” … While a report in Us Weekly alleged that actress Cameron Diaz had gone back to flirting with old flame Justin Timberlake, Life and Style magazine paired the actress with a different partner — New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez. “A-Rod's with Cameron,” an insider insisted. “They've been keeping it quiet, but they're totally together.” According to the source, the two began flirting at the Creative Artists Agency Super Bowl party and have since carried on a quiet but cozy courtship.
