Perez Hilton claims Simon Cowell's ex-fiance, Mezhgan
Hussainy, is angry with him. A source tells the site, "Sheís furious,
humiliated and angry, but she canít do anything because she put her career on
back burner and he supports her financially and emotionally. She canít talk
about her true feelings in public because she doesnít want to betray him just
because he betrayed her. She feels betrayed that he didnít have the sense to
use protection with a woman their circle of friends thought was a gold-digger."
Mark Wahlberg tells The Sun that Justin Bieber needs to
clean up his act. "Justin, are you listening? Don't be so naughty ...
Be a nice boy, pull your trousers up, make your mom proud and stop smoking weed
you little b**tard. He's a teenager living in a different day and age. I was in
prison before I got a record out and I don't think he's been to prison. He's a
nice enough kid and you're going to be a teenager. But if you're being a teen
in the spotlight you're going to be criticized for it. This career can be
short-lived - you might as well be the best you can while you're doing it."
Jon Bon Jovi's son, Jesse, has earned a roster spot on the
Notre Dame football team. Coach Brian Kelly tells USA Today, ďJesse has
earned his spot on the 105, Heís a tough kid. The kids really like him. They
respect him. They donít look at him as a rockstarís son. They look at him as a
kid that loves Notre Dame and wants to play football and help this team. Heís
had a good summer. Iím a huge fan of Bon Jovi. Didnít have to have his son to
make that apparent. He had a reputation here. I think Charlie Weis, being from New
Jersey, brought him into the Notre Dame family long
before I came. Heís a great guy. Heís a grounded guy.Ē
