Johnny Depp is wanted for questioning by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) regarding an alleged incident involving his bodyguards and a disabled woman.
The Rum Diary actor attended an Iggy Pop concert at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles last Thursday and 52-year-old Robyn Ecker alleges his minders grabbed her wrists and wrestled her to the ground after she danced too close to his table in the VIP section of the venue.
Following the incident, Robyn - who paid $600 each for the tickets as a birthday present for her husband - went to hospital to check she hadn't been badly injured, and then filed a complaint with the LAPD. Officers are now trying to get in touch with Johnny and his bodyguards in order to interview them. According to TMZ.com, Robyn's assistant confirmed she and her party had been drinking during the evening, while a law enforcement source claimed she was drunk when she made her complaint.
Lindsay Lohan wants to be remembered for her talent, not her problems. The troubled actress - who has had several stints in rehab and a string of legal problems, most recently serving 35 days house arrest after breaching probation by stealing a necklace - insists she doesn't want to be a "celebrity" and believes people no longer view her as a "real person."
"People in their mind have created who I am and act as if there is no real person inside of me. Just like Marilyn. Marilyn never wanted to be just a celebrity. Neither do I. I had always thought that movie stars were in films that would last forever in your mind. But now the films don't. I don't want to be remembered as someone who just wanted to be photographed, who goes out at night, and gets in trouble. Heath Ledger once said to me, 'It's built you up to knock you down' and that's all it is. Marilyn said she had no foundation. But she said she was really working on it. I've been trying to do the same thing. I believe in myself and I'm a good actress," she said, comparing herself to late screen icon Marilyn Monroe.
Lindsay, 25, says she has always identified with Marilyn - who died in 1962 at the age of 36 - and says the blonde beauty inspired her to always want to appear strong and in control.
Lindsay Lohan's ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson has been charged with misdemeanour DUI.
The 33-year-old DJ - who was arrested last Monday while driving her black Porsche back to Los Angeles from a gig in Las Vegas - has been charged with two counts of DUI, driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol level over .08. If she were to be convicted, she could face six months in prison, but the majority of first offenders usually get probation, according to TMZ.
Actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers was hospitalized after a suspected suicide attempt on Tuesday.
The Tudors star - who has been in rehab five times for alcohol problems - refused treatment by paramedics for more than 30 minutes, meaning they were forced to call police and he was eventually taken away by ambulance to a facility near his home in Maida Vale, north London.
"This is very sad. It was the opinion of those present that he tried to take his life," a source said.
Worried neighbors saw the 33-year-old actor - who was believed to have overdosed on unspecified pills - rushed to hospital. "I saw the ambulance arriving and was worried to death. Jonathan is a lovely guy. You see him all the time in the street. He says hello and is very pleasant. I hope he is fine," one onlooker said.
Jackass star Ryan Dunn's death was so violent it is unknown if it was caused by the car crash or the subsequent fire.
The autopsy result for the actor and Zachary Hartwell - who was also killed when Ryan's Porsche flew over a barrier and into a tree on Route 332 yesterday - were both dead when officers arrived on the scene, and according to TMZ.com the Chester County Coroner has confirmed it is impossible to determine how they died.
Toxicology results will determine the role alcohol played in the accident but will not be revealed for at least four weeks, but he did post pictures hours before the accident of him enjoying himself in a bar. Van Toffler, president of MTV Networks, has paid tribute to the star, noting the Jackass "brotherhood" would not be the same as a result of his passing.
"We are devastated by the tragic loss of Ryan Dunn - a beloved member of the MTV family for more than a decade. The Jackass brotherhood will never be the same."
Time to start worrying again? RadarOnline is reporting that Lindsay Lohan was involved in a bit of a bruhaha at a Hollywood club over the weekend while she was (allegedly) partying with friends.
Around 2 am LA time, a fellow clubgoer tried to take a picture of Lindsay. Someone who was with the actress grabbed the camera (a Nikon) and threw into in a bucket of ice water.
The camera belonged to a witness in a group of four who sat at a table next to Lohan’s for an hour. “We figured out when we got home that the camera was broken because water seeped in. The memory card, though, was still good,” said the witness, who does not wish to be identified.
He described the actress as “belligerently drunk,” and said “She looked like she was falling all over the place.”

Steven Tyler is holding practically nothing back in his book Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?, sharing his opinions on reality TV, among many subjects. While recounting one of his stints in rehab, Tyler alleges that he observed some of the making of Celebrity Rehab, and the picture he paints is unflattering… to say the least.
Tyler claims that Steven Adler, a patient at Las Encinas (where Rehab is filmed) and former Guns N Roses member, was asked to fake his behavior for the benefit of the cameras. “They wanted him to act out his own messed-up state when he entered rehab. It was ghoulish and unreal,” Tyler writes. “They gave him 30 grand for the episode, he snorted it all, crashed his car, and he ended up in jail detox.”

Lea Michele, Glee’s reigning diva, was hit by a car on Friday morning.
Michele was driving on Melrose Avenue in LA, on her way home from work, when she was hit by a car driven by “a couple of drunk girls,” according to an unnamed source. The source says that after the collision, the girls “got out of the car, giggled that she [Lea Michele] was famous, and said something like ‘are you drunk, too?’ Then, they drove off.”
The actress called the police after the accident, but she is not injured and “is fine,” according to her rep. In any event, Michele is a trooper. The former Broadway star was famously involved in a car crash while on her way to her Glee audition and “ran into the audition with cuts and glass in my hair.”
And still managed to completely wow everyone in the room when she sang “On My Own” to secure the starring role on the successful show.

While Britney Spears may have finally made her true comeback, a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) handed out to her dancers proves that the Princess of Pop is still not in control of her own life.
In the document, a dancer "acknowledges that it is essential that [Britney] not be exposed to any alcohol, drugs, or controlled substances." The NDA goes on to read that dancers could face random drug tests; if they fail or refuse to take them, they risk losing their job.
Partying sober with Britney Spears? Talk about a paradox!
She may be 29 years-old, but her management finds it necessary to treat her like a 9 year-old; even Miley Cyrus gets more freedom than Britney.
