Mark Wahlberg once started a feud with Leonardo DiCaprio after being a "d**k" to him at a charity event.
The 42-year-old actor didn't realize he had infuriated the 39-year-old star until it came to him auditioning for 1995 drama movie The Basketball Diaries, and he claims Leonardo - who played main character Jim Carroll in the film - was determined to make sure Mark didn't land a part in the motion picture.
"Leonardo [DiCaprio] was like, 'Over my dead f***ing body. Marky Mark's not going to be in this f***ing movie.' Because we'd had a thing - I didn't even realize it, [but] I was a bit of a dick to him at a charity basketball game. So he was like, 'This f***ing ####### is not going to be in this movie,'" he said, speaking in the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.
Despite the initial animosity, Mark impressed the producers and landed the role of Mickey and the pair ended becoming really good friends.
Paris Hilton's brother is reportedly planning to sue Lindsay Lohan.
The hotel heiress' younger sibling, Barron, has vowed to take the 27-year-old actress to court after she allegedly ordered for him to be beaten up by Ray Lemoine at a party on Star Island in Miami on Friday night for "talking sh*t" about her boyfriend.
According to TMZ, sources revealed that Paris met with a lawyer on Saturday afternoon before introducing him to Barron and getting the lawsuit up and running. However, sources have since claimed the attack was nothing to do with Lindsay and it was merely a party that got out of hand after Barron, 24, refused to leave the property.
Although in an interview with police, Barron - who posted a picture of his injured face on Instagram three hours after the incident - said Lindsay - who famously fell out with his sister Paris in 2006 - was laughing as Ray hit him.
Paris Hilton's brother is in hospital after claiming he was beaten up in an attacked ordered by Lindsay Lohan.
The socialite's younger sibling, Barron, was taken from the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami, Florida to a medical center on Friday night, and given a CT scan to check for internal injuries. A source told gossip website TMZ.com that the 24-year-old hotel heir was advised to seek emergency medical treatment because his injuries, including several cuts to his face, were so severe.
Barron, who was involved in an altercation while partying at a mansion where the Mean Girls actress is currently staying in the early hours of Friday morning, turned down an ambulance that arrived at his hotel and instead got private transport to the University of Miami Hospital, where he received various treatments.
Barron has claimed that Lindsay approached him at the party with a male friend and told him, "You talk s**t about me to my boyfriend, this is what you get." He also told police that the the troubled star, 27, was laughing as the unknown man then beat him up.
Joe Jonas has been slammed as a "bad artist" by Dylan Sprouse.
The former Jonas Brothers star gave a revealing interview earlier this week in which he claimed he felt working for Disney meant he had to "sugarcoat" his true self and had little choice or creative input into his work.
But now his fellow former Disney star Dylan - best known for starring with twin brother Cole in The Suite Life of Zack & Cody - has hit out at his "bulls**t" comments, insisting Joe was more likely dazzled by fame than being prepared to make his own decisions. In a blog post, Dylan wrote, "I think it's bulls**t that they were being robbed of choice or creativity. If they wanted too, they could have told Disney 'No.' Cole and I did this hundreds of times and we ended up all right. The only reason they didn't is because, like many of the people on that channel, I think they fell for the allure of fame... Nowadays artists just assume they have to do what they are told by their proprietors because there is a 'rigid structure to achievement.' It is nothing more than a scheme to rob you of your individuality and capitalize the gain they acquire from such treachery. If you believe this, not only are you incredibly foolish, but you are a BAD ARTIST [sic]."
Frank Ocean's cousin is suing Chris Brown for more than $3 million.
The "Pyramids" hitmaker's relative, Sha'Keir Duarte, who filed a lawsuit in August against the "Fine China" singer claiming Chris' bodyguard violently beat him up when the two singers and their entourages got into an heated confrontation outside Westlake Recording Studio in Los Angeles in January, says he suffered a huge amount of physical and emotional pain as a result of the confrontation.
Sha'Keir has submitted an itemized list of what he is seeking damages for in new court documents, obtained by gossip website TMZ.com, that includes $1 million for pain, suffering and inconvenience, and $1 million for emotional distress. He is also seeking $1 million for punitive damages and an additional $60,000 for medical expenses.
Chris, who is currently undergoing a court ordered 90-day stint at a live-in rehabilitation centre to focus on his anger issues, filed documents to counter-sue last month, in which the star, 24, claimed that Sha'Keir provoked the fight by threatening to kill him.
Charlie Sheen has reportedly ordered Brooke Mueller out of his house.
The Anger Management star had bought his ex-wife a house near his own in a gated community in Los Angeles, but recently put it on the market for significantly less than the $4.8 million he paid for it, and has sent a letter through his lawyer demanding his former spouse move out.
It is unclear what will happen to Charlie's sons with Brooke - four-year-old twins Bob and Max - but they are currently under temporary guardianship of her brother, Scott. It is presumed Charlie will seek custody in family court.
Bob and Max were previously being looked after by Denise Richards - another of Charlie's ex-wives, with whom he has daughters Sam, nine and Lola, eight - but she had to give up the twins when they displayed "violent behavior." Earlier this week, Brooke make claims of child abuse against Denise, accusing her not only of mistreating Bob and Max, but also her own children and her adopted daughter Eloise, two.
Tori Spelling was hospitalized for stress last month.
The former 90210 star is said to have hit a low point after people hit out at her for calling Katie Holmes "plastic" and accusing the actress of not being able to sing in her new memoir Spelling It Like It Is.
The wave of criticism directed at Tori resulted in her being treated in hospital for anxiety, with a source revealing: "Tori was hospitalized for stress and anxiety for a few days because she was receiving a lot of negative feedback about revelations she made in the book and she had no anticipation that it was going to hit a nerve. Tori didn't think making comments about a chance encounter with Katie Holmes would cause such a ruckus. She just grew very anxious about having to defend her actions in the book in media interviews and decided that she needed to go to the hospital."
Tori - who has been busy promoting her new book - has since recovered from her problems and is now fine. "She just wasn't feeling well and went to the hospital, but everything was fine," another source said.
Brooke Mueller is looking for a new home.
The 36-year-old socialite is planning to move out of the exclusive gated community Mulholland Estates, where her neighbors include her ex-husband Charlie Sheen and his ex-wife Denise Richards, until she regains primary custody of her sons, Bob and Max, with the Anger Management star, so that her brother, Scott Mueller, who secured temporary guardianship of the boys last week, can look after them in familiar surroundings.
A source told gossip website TMZ.com that Scott is moving into Brooke's home in Beverly Hills yesterday, and she believes she is not legally allowed to stay there with the boys until her custody rights are fully restored. The insider said that she began shopping for condos in the same area on Monday.
Scott, who lives in Orange County, California, decided to move into Brooke's house to look after the boys - after Denise made the "difficult decision" to give up caring for them as a result of their "violent behavior" towards her daughters - because the judge felt it was important that Bob and Max stay in the same school.
George Clooney hasn't forgiven Russell Crowe for calling him a "sell out." The Gravity star fell out with the Gladiator actor in 2005, after he slated him in an interview with GQ magazine. The silver-haired actor was slammed by Russell, 49, for modeling suits in an advertising campaign, and then shortly afterwards George was sent a poetry book by way of apology - something he didn't accept.
"The truth is that [Russell Crowe] did send me a book of poems to apologize for insulting the s**t out of me, which he did. And that's when he really went off on me. 'Who the f*** does this guy think he is? He's a Frank Sinatra wannabe.' He really went after me," the 52-year-old actor told the new issue of Esquire.
Chris Brown is counter-suing Frank Ocean's cousin.
The "Pyramids" hitmaker's relative, Sha'Keir Duarte, filed a lawsuit in August against the "Fine China" singer - who is currently seeking treatment in a Malibu rehab facility to learn to cope with his anger management issues - claiming Chris' bodyguard violently beat him up when the two singers and their entourages got into an heated confrontation outside Westlake Recording Studio in Los Angeles in January.
But Chris has now fired back and claimed in new court documents that Duarte provoked the fight by threatening to kill him, according to gossip website TMZ.com. The 24-year-old star also accused Duarte of kicking and punching him, and insisted that he attempted to avoid the altercation "with the aggressive and hostile Mr. Duarte." Duarte is allegedly demanding $2 million in compensation and Chris has accused him of being motivated by money.
It was previously reported that Chris fled the scene straight after the fight, while Frank stayed to speak to police officers.
