Katy Perry Mourns The Death Of Troubled Ex-Boyfriend Johnny Lewis

The tale of Johnny Lewis, the Sons of Anarchy actor who fell to his death in Los Feliz after murdering his elderly landlord, just keeps getting sadder and crazier. His father Michael was in one of the highest ranks of Scientology, and it’s come out that the younger Lewis was trying to kick a serious drug addiction with a potentially-dangerous Scientology program called Narconon. When that failed, he was in rehab earlier this year, and onlookers say he was clearly on drugs at the time of the murder.

One of the darker elements of the story are his friends’ total lack of surprise about the bizarre circumstances: Sons showrunner Kurt Sutter Tweeted: “It was a tragic end for an extremely talented guy, who unfortunately had lost his way. I wish I could say that I was shocked by the events last night, but I was not.” And Katy Perry, who dated Lewis from 2005-2006 and used him as partial inspiration for “The One That Got Away,” knew then that Lewis was on a bad path and felt she had to separate from him for her own good: “He was in trouble then,” says a source, “and she couldn’t help him.” Sources say she’s devastated about his death.

Modern Family’s Sofia Vergara told Stylecaster that she likely has some nipping and tucking in her future, as she’s not opposed to plastic surgery on principle:

Yeah, I would definitely do something. Not something crazy but little things here or there. Hopefully, when the time comes and I’m considering it, there will be even better treatments out there.


Yet another element of the Great Kristen Stewart-Robert Pattinson Reconciliation Of Early Autumn 2012 is the fact that he didn’t believe she didn’t fuck Rupert Sanders until like five minutes ago, when she gave him all of her email, voicemail and other passwords in order to prove that all they did was have “several makeout sessions.” So WOOT? Or no, I don’t care about this anymore. [The Hollywood Gossip]
