Births, deaths, break-ups, break-ins, bizarre syndromes and sexy abs … welcome to my weekly wrap-up of the week in celebrity news.
>> Celebrity chef Curtis Stone has brought his pregnant wife Lindsay Price and two-year-old son Hudson to Australia for a visit in the lead up to the birth of the couple’s second child.
Before they flew out, Lindsay shared a bump shot on her Instagram captioned: “This wear all white for Memorial Day get up fit a little differently last year. #babyonboard”
>> 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan landed in intensive care last weekend after the limousine bus he was riding in was involved in an accident in New Jersey.
One person died in the crash – James McNair, a comedian and friend of Morgan’s who performed under the name Uncle Jimmy Mack.
“He’s not in good shape,” Morgan’s ex-wife Sabina Morgan told the New York Daily News. “I’m traumatized. I’m so upset. I can’t believe it. It’s like I’m in a nightmare.”
Morgan’s rep denied rumours on Monday that his leg was being amputated.
“Tracy remains in critical but stable condition. His fianceé Megan is by his side,” according to a statement to PEOPLE. “As we shared yesterday, Tracy had surgery on his broken leg.”
>> Halle Berry has been ordered to pay her ex, Gabriel Aubry, $16,000 per month for child support.
A Los Angeles court ordered the she pay the amount for their daughter Nahla, 6, until she turns 19 years old or graduates from high school. The court also awarded Aubry $115,000 in retroactive support.
The couple – who met while appearing in the Versace photoshoot above in 2005 – share equal custody of their daughter, according to court documents.
>> Hart of Dixie star Jaime King shared an intimate photo of herself breastfeeding her son James Knight, captioned: “#JamesKnight is now 8 months old! These are the moments a mother lives for. Breastfeeding should not be taboo — and bottle feeding should not be judged — it’s ALL fun for the whole family.”
>> Drew Barrymore has shared a cute pic of her baby daughter Frankie, 1 month, and 20-month-old daughter Olive via Twitter for a good cause, captioning it: “Get this Mother of Dragons T-Shirt. All proceeds go to help employment for Foster kids in LA.”
>> Rapper Lil’ Kim welcomed daughter Royal Reign, at 9:58am on Monday, June 9. Born at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey, Royal weighed in at 6 lbs, 5 oz., and measured 19½ inches long.
>> Jennifer Lopez has broken up with toyboy Casper Smart. According to US magazine, the couple’s decision to pull the plug on their two-and-a-half year relationship had nothing to do with reports Smart cheated on the singer with a transgender model. A source insisted the story is “100 percent not true.”.
“It has actually been an amicable process that started a few months ago,” a J.Lo insider told Us. “It wasn’t an easy decision, but they decided to stay friends…Their relationship couldn’t work with the distance. He started trying to establish his own life and career, and she is so focused on hers, and they just couldn’t be all about each other anymore.”
>> Lisa Curry has revealed in an interview with A Current Affair the bizarre syndrome that broke up her relationship with Grant Kenny (pictured above with their son Jett) after 23 years of marriage.
She says a doctor originally told her she had depression, but a naturopath diagnosed her with Rushing Women’s Syndrome, a condition caused by constantly hurrying, which can lead to stress and other health issues.
(Erm, I think we might all have it … oh my god, it’s an epidemic!)
“I was just being an absolute b***h, a cow, angry and irritable for no reason,” she said. “He (Grant) wasn’t actually doing anything wrong, I just couldn’t control it.
“It created a lot of tension for us for a lot of years. I had days where I felt completely out of control. I was moody, I would cry for no reason, I wanted to kill the world.”
Rather than taking anti-depressants, Lisa chose to treat the condition with herbs and hormone supplements, which she adds to her morning smoothies.
>> Oh my gawd, Cindy Crawford’s kids are the spit of her. The supermodel posted a photo on Instagram of 14-year-old son Presley and 11-year-old daughter Kaia striking a pose. She captioned the pic ‘Just hangin out with @kaiajordan and @presley_gerber’.”
>> Hugh Jackman shared a photo on Instagram of his dramatic new look for his latest role in a new adaption of Peter Pan, captioned: “Blackbeard is born.”
Meanwhile, Hugh also shared this (equally scary) pic with the Prime Minister, captioned: “Look who popped into our early A.M. workout … The PM can train!!!!”
>> And my favourite gratuitous shot of the week is this selfie by Josh Duhamel, who captioned it: “Was an honor hosting the amfAR Inspiration Gala NY last night at the Plaza Hotel which raised a lot of money in the fight against HIV and AIDS. Francisco Costa and Italo Zuchelli from Calvin Klein were honored for their work in the fight against the disease. Was very proud to wear my complete Calvin Klein look last night. #mycalvins”
>> Neil Patrick Harris stole the show at the Tony Awards when he performed a number from his Broadway production, Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Dressed in full drag, Neil sang “Sugar Daddy”, climbing into the audience at the end to lick Samuel L. Jackson‘s glasses, give Sting a lap dance, and collapse onto Kevin Bacon.
>> Harrison Ford has been rushed to hospital after injuring himself on the set of the new Star Wars film, while filming a scene as Han Solo on board the Millenium Falcon.
Writing those words makes me feel slightly giddy …
“Harrison Ford sustained an ankle injury during filming today on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII,” Disney confirmed to PEOPLE in a statement. “He was taken to a local hospital and is receiving care. Shooting will continue as planned while recuperates.
>> A man accused of stalking Sandra Bullock, Joshua James Corbett, has been charged with felony counts of residential burglary, stalking and possession of a machine gun, after breaking into her house.
Thankfully, he was not thought to have the machine gun on him at the time of the break-in.
According to CNN, Corbett allegedly entered the property by climbing over a chain-link fence (with barbed wire on top) around 5am on Sunday. Sandra allegedly discovered Corbett and locked herself in a room until police arrived at the scene.
>> Chloe Lattanzi bonded with mum Olivia Newton-John in Los Angeles, California, on Tuesday. She shared the pic on Instagram, with the caption: “I love you mama #bestfriends.”
Chloe confessed to falling off the wagon in May after months in rehab fighting her demons, posting on social media: “I went out last night and p****d my sobriety away.”
There were reports at the time that Olivia had called on Chloe’s father, Matt Lattanzi, and family members to intervene.
>> My Facebook feed was filled with sadness this week when the news that comedian Rik Mayall had died unexpectedly broke.
Rik’s close friend, Peter Richardson, spoke of his “shock” at the 56-year-old’s sudden death, shortly after he was “happily chatting away” to his son, saying he “seemed so happy and so healthy” just 30 minutes before he died.
He added: “We still don’t know quite what happened, but it was a seizure of some sort. It was very quick.”
That’s it for this week’s round-up. Catch you next Friday.
