ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER SCIENTOLOGY SCANDAL … OR 3
Let’s start with the TomKat (just the way I like it) …
Suri Cruise will get a serious car phobia if her parents aren’t careful. According to the New York Daily News, Tom Cruise could be questioned by police over his role in a high-speed car chase after the actor and his 6-year-old daughter were being chased by paparazzi for 20 minutes. Tom’s car hit speeds of 55 to 65 mph on the West Side Highway, where the speed limit is 25 mph. Apparently, at least 10 cars and motorcycles and bicyclists were reportedly involved in the chase as well. I’m not quite sure how the cyclists kept up. Maybe they should enter the next Tour de France.
The dangerous chase comes only two days after Suri and her mother, Katie Holmes, were involved in an accident with a garbage truck, not to mention their scrape with the paparazzi on Friday.
I’m thinking the Cruises and the paps need to both take a long hard look at how they’re handling this media circus before someone gets hurt.
Meanwhile, People magazine has switched camps – after initially championing Katie’s cause – with its latest cover, “Tom’s Shattered World”, which features the sad-eyed actor telling a source he was blindsided by Katie leaving him, wondering: “What did I not see?”
Er, perhaps that your wife had been mooching around looking suicidally depressed for the last few years?
Let’s move on to …
Jason Lee’s ex-wife, actress and photographer Carmen Llywelyn, who has accused Church of Scientology officials of wrecking her marriage to the My Name Is Earl actor. She reckons the church demanded intimate details about her sex life.
The SMH quotes her saying: “When you’re in session and you’re going through the auditing process, if a question comes up or a thought comes up that has to do with your husband or an intimate sexual detail, you are required to say it… I don’t want to get too gross, but (it would) have to do with sexual positions.”
And let’s finish up with …
Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department have obtained search warrants as part of their investigation into the death of Alexander Jentzsch, the son of Scientology President Heber Jentzsch. Alexander died on July 2, allegedly of a high fever.
Ed Winter, Assistant Chief of the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office told Radar: “The LAPD is involved in the investigation into Alexander Jentzsch. Let’s just say we have questions about his death. We also have been told that Alexander’s father-in-law found his body, and ran an errand, and then came home and called 911.”
FANCY HIRING JOHNNY DEPP’S YACHT?
If you’re cashed up and heading to Europe, or just fancy a stickybeak, then check out Johnny’s flash water toy, Vajoliroja (the name comes from (Va)anessa – his ex-wife - (Jo)hnny, (Li)ly-(Ro)se (his daughter) and (Ja)ck his son). Click here for all the details on the snazzy vessel. It even has fine dining options on board: how do cauliflower and cumin fritters with lime yoghurt sound for lunch? Oh, except it’s probably not available right now because Johnny might need to take the kids for a spin during their summer holiday in the South of France.
NO WONDER BROOKE SHIELDS WAS A VIRGIN FOR SO LONG
She kept choosing the wrong men, like Michael Jackson and George Michael.
Brooke admitted on the TV show The Talk yesterday that she hoped she’d finally lose Hollywood’s most famous virginity to George.
“My clothes were practically falling off me,” Shields recalled. But George, who has since come out of the closet, ended the relationship, saying he needed to concentrate on his career.
Shields also told Rolling Stone a few years back that Michael Jackson wanted to marry her: “There were times when he would ask me to marry him, and I would say, ‘You have me for the rest of your life, you don’t need to marry me, I’m going to go on and do my own life and have my own marriage and my own kids, and you’ll always have me’.”
JANET’S PISSED ABOUT HER NIECE’S FIRST MOVIE ROLE
While I’m musing on the Jacksons … US Weekly is reporting that Janet Jackson is “furious” that her niece, Paris, daughter of her late brother Michael Jackson, has a role in the upcoming film, Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys.
She ”feels it goes against Michael’s wishes to keep his kids out of the the limelight until age 18,” according to a source.
Paris, 14, landed the role back in December, and aunt Janet has previously expressed concern over her niece becoming an actress.
“We’ve spoken about the fact that you’re only a child once,” Janet told Prevention magazine in May. “I think there’s a time for everything, and now is not the time [to act in films]. I told her I thought she should enjoy being a kid, possibly go to college—or not—but wait till she turns 18. She’s a very tough, smart girl. But it’s a cutthroat industry. I wouldn’t want my child to do it.”
ANOTHER LINDSAY IN THE OVEN?
Lindsay Lohan’s 52-year-old dad Michael is expecting a baby with his on-again, off-again girlfriend Kate Major.
A friend of Kate’s has revealed: “Michael is already picking out names and hopes they have a daughter as beautiful and talented as Lindsay. This is a second chance for him to be the parent he always wanted to be.”
Or, more likely, screw it up again.
Gossipmongers are scratching their heads over how the pregnancy occurred, since Kate had a restraining order against Michael until a few weeks ago. (What a charming couple!)
Before dating Michael, Kate dated former reality television star Jon Gosselin of “Jon & Kate + 8″. Kate met Jon while working as a reporter at a US tabloid magazine called Star. Wow, she can pick ‘em.
AWWW, LITTLE HARPER BECKHAM IS WALKING!
Victoria Beckham debuted Harper Seven’s adorable new skill in Dublin yesterday.

Halle Berry was rushed to hospital on Tuesday night after hitting her head on concrete while filming her new movie The Hive. She’s since been released and filming has resumed. But it’s a dangerous business being around her on movie sets. She suffered an eye injury while shooting the James Bond film, Die Another Day; broke her arm on set of Gothika; and was hospitalized after she was hit in the head with a lighting prop while filming Catwoman.
NAOMI’S CRAZY IN LOVE
So often, celebs seem to be playing up their romance just for the cameras. But Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber have been snapped having what looks to me like the real thing to be outside of Saint-Tropez airport, in France.
Naomi is currently there filming the movie Diana, starring in the title role as Princess Di.

DEMI’S DAUGHTERS HAVEN’T ABANDONED HER
On July 16, Radar Online claimed Demi Moore’s daughter, Rumer, 23, Scout, 21, and Tallulah Willis, 18, were “seriously considering taking about a restraining order against Demi to stop her from contacting them. . . Demi has been calling them incessantly and emailing them, leaving them tearful messages and begging them to call her and the girls are sick of it.”
But an insider tells Us Weekly. “It’s true they’re not all hunky dory, getting along like they used to, but they’re not about to go to those extremes!” the insider says of the Striptease star, who went to rehab in February after her split with Ashton Kutcher, 34. “They love their mom at the end of the day, and they’re never going to completely abandon her.”
