Keanu Reeves sued for child support You MUST read my colleague Bruce Demara's delicious story about a Barrie woman who claims one or more of her four (now grown) children may have been fathered by Keanu Reeves. The story is right here and here's a taste: "Karen Sala is seeking child support of $150,000 per month, retroactive to June 1988, as well as $3 million per month in spousal support retroactive to November 2006. A Los Angeles spokesperson for Reeves issued a statement last night denying her allegations. "Karen Sala's allegations are completely false and absurd. Mr. Reeves has no knowledge of who she is," Cheryl Maisel said in a statement."
Upholding of Prop 8 prompts David Hyde Pierce to speak up According to Us, the Frasier star "is fiercely private about his personal life, [but] he said he felt compelled to speak up now in light of California upholding anti-gay marriage initiative Proposition 8 this past week. "Brian and I always kept a low profile. We didn't hide our lives," Pierce said. "We got married very quietly last October 24 and thought that was fine, and then suddenly the state of California said, 'No, it's not.'"
Rihanna has to testify According to AP, "Rihanna is among the witnesses whom prosecutors plan to call during a hearing in Chris Brown's assault case, an attorney said Thursday. Donald Etra, Rihanna's lawyer, told reporters that prosecutors have told him the Barbados-born singer will receive a subpoena to testify at a preliminary hearing June 22. The hearing will focus on whether there is enough evidence to continue the case against Brown. Etra said Rihanna will comply with the order. It would mark her first appearance in court since felony assault and criminal threats charges were filed against Brown in March."
Courtney Love says she didn't rake up those Amex charges American Express is suing the former singer for $350,000 in alleged unpaid charges, but, according to TMZ, her lawyer says it's all bogus. "Love's lawyer writes: "AmEx knows the claim has no merit. We have told them this for a long time. AmEx's lax policies allowed fraudulent transactions to be charged to my client's card." Keith Fink, Courtney's lawyer, tells us that 104 AmEx credit cards were taken out under Courtney's name or the name of her business -- and that all the charges attributed to Courtney weren't made by her. He also said it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out nobody takes out 104 credit cards!" Meanwhile, Courtney herself tweeted, "outliers waits and im only on chapter 2 teh 10000 hour rule amerex come on i have a good feeling about your solid i bet taurean ass!" She really did and I have no idea what it means, but I'm guessing "amerex" may be Amex.
