  • Casey Affleck is currently being sued by a woman who claims that he sexually harassed her while shooting I’m Still Here, the documentary Affleck made about his brother-in-law, Joaquin Phoenix:

Producer Amanda White, claims that the actor/director “repeatedly referred to women as ‘cows;’ he discussed his sexual exploits and those of other celebrities that he allegedly witnessed; and asked [White], after learning her age, ‘Isn’t it about time you get pregnant?'” White has a professional history with Affleck, having worked with him on Good Will Hunting.

  • Affleck’s lawyer has already responded to the claims, stating: “Ms. White was terminated from the production over a year ago. She and her lawyers believe that this maliciously and erroneously filed complaint will cause the producers to succumb to her outrageous and baseless demands. She is mistaken. The complaint will be vigorously defended and cross-claims will be filed against her.” [ContactMusic]
  • Alexis Neiers of E!’s Pretty Wild, who was sent to prison for 180 days for her breaking into Orlando Bloom’s house, has been released after serving 30 days of her sentence at prison where Lindsay Lohan is currently being held. [People]
  • The Rolling Stones are heading out on tour again next year, and it might be for the last time, according to a source: “They’re likely to perform in stadiums. It’s almost certainly the last full-scale world tour. The band realise that age is creeping up on them. They want to bow out on top of their game, and not short-change fans.” [ContactMusic]
  • A source claims that Lindsay Lohan might be released before the end of July, and possibly even by the end of this weekend.[RadarOnline]
  • A woman who was recently released from Lohan’s facility claims that Lohan was placed in isolation after throwing a fit of sorts: “She is in with the killers and she has only been let out for hour-long breaks, and during those she was locked down to a table. On Friday, Lindsay got put on lockdown. While some of us got two hours to go to the yard, or the TV room, Lindsay was on total lockdown. She had a hysterical fit, crying and yelling so she got put in isolation.” [ShowbizSpy]
  • “I am very proud of the fact that 20 years (sic) on people tell me they became a vegetarian as a result of Meat is Murder. I think that is quite literally rock music changing someone’s life – it’s certainly changing the life of animals. It is one of the things I am most proud of.”-Johnny Marr of The Smiths.

  • Oksana Grigorieva has spoken out against claims that she is attempting to extort Mel Gibson by leaking the now-infamous tapes of his rampages, stating, “Mel is lying. He’s lying. There’s no extortion, and there’s no texts and no emails. I’m fighting for my child. [Mel’s] just a liar, and it will come up in the court, just wait.” [USWeekly]
  • Michael Lohan claims Kate Major’s accusations that he attacked her are totally false: “First of all, the wedding is totally off. Thank God. And yes, I’m getting a restraining order. This whole abuse situation is made up. If I had abused her in any way, I would have been charged immediately with a misdemeanour, but I never was charged with that because nothing happened to her.” [DailyExpress]
  • Kristin Davis doesn’t seem to think that a Sex and the City sequel is going to happen: “I don’t think so, not that I know of. I wish it was so that we were continuing but I don’t know. We made 300 million (dollars) internationally. There was so much hype, not coming from us, but the media hyped it up and then they tore it down. I could be wrong. Obviously there was a time when we thought there was no movie happening so you never know. But it is not looking great.” [ContactMusic]
  • Leonardo DiCaprio thought he could outsmart fans at the World Cup by wearing a baseball cap disguise, but they apparently realized who he was and followed him into the bathroom: “All of a sudden, the stall began shaking and Leo freaked when he heard blaring, buzzing vuvuzela soccer horns and people shouting his name. He thought the stall was about to cave in on him, and screamed for help!” He was eventually able to escape, of course. [ShowbizSpy]
  • Kelly Osbourne isn’t taking her recovery process for granted: “”Five years ago I thought I’d be dead, or real close to it, by now. It’s one of those things where other people’s tragedy brings it home. The amount of people who have died this year alone from the same stuff I’ve done is scary.” [ShowbizSpy]
