Beyonce and Jay Z's marriage 'crumbling'?

Beyonce Knowles and Jay Z's marriage is allegedly "crumbling".

A source close to the pair insists that recent reports about their marriage being in trouble are true and they have more of a business than a romantic relationship right now.

One pal told the New York Post's Page Six: "Knowing them as I do, obviously there's a little something to certain reports. When your man or your woman isn't getting it done for you, and I'm talking emotionally, not necessarily sexually...they keep things quiet."

Another insider claims their business relationship between Beyonce, 32, and Jay Z is more important to them than their marriage.

The source said: "There's still something there, even though it's not going to last. Business is always part of the equation. They know they're the king and queen of hip-hop - and really, all of music. Neither wants to lose that.

"They are solid, solid business people who know what they're doing."

The report also claims they are having marriage therapy while on their 'On The Run' tour together but Jay Z, 44, prefers to spend his time on his phone.

The source said: "His phone's constantly ringing. Jay trying to make deal after deal."


Police investigated over Lily Allen picture

Police officers in Australia are being investigated after Lily Allen tweeted a picture of herself in handcuffs upon her arrival in the country.

The 'Smile' singer flew into Coolangatta Airport on the Gold Coast over the weekend to headline the Splendour in the Grass music festival and reportedly asked police to handcuff her so she could take a picture to post on Instagram.

The image - which was captioned "#uhoh" and has since been deleted - shows Lily on her knees with her hands cuffed behind her while a police officer stands over her.

However, superiors did not take the joke lightly and the Australian Federal Police have launched an investigation into what happened.

A source told TMZ: "[An investigation was launched and the AFP] acknowledged protocols were breached but then seemed to justify it by saying the officers were caught in the moment."

In the picture, which was shared by fans on Twitter and Instagram, Lily is dressed in jeans and a dark top with her dyed red hair pulled back.

Both she and the uniformed policeman appear to be smiling.

Ian McKellen is careful with cash

Sir Ian McKellen "lives within his means".

The 75-year-old actor - best known for playing Magneto in the 'X-Men' franchise and Gandalf in the 'Lord of the Rings' movies - insists he has always been careful with money and it wasn't until he entered his twilight years he began living comfortably with plenty of money in the bank.

He said: "Money is a factor in my life but it's not a major factor. I've never had to worry about it - I learnt very early on to pay my taxes on time and live within my means, which has served me well.

"And I haven't had to bring up a family and I don't have dependents.

"I haven't earned an awful lot of money until quite recently. At the same time, I've never had to do a job for the money so I've been very lucky."

The legendary screen star says many actors struggle financially but continue pursuing their career of choice because of passion.

He explained to Radio Times magazine: "Most actors are not rich - they are very poor indeed. What keeps them going is that they just love the job. I know actors who have had to turn down good roles because they just don't pay enough. It's hard.

"The one thing you can ask, I think, is that actors get paid a living wage."



Jenny McCarthy's son reported her to police

The former Playboy model admits Evan, 12 - whom she has with ex-husband John Asher - once reported her for texting on her phone whilst she was driving.

Speaking on Sirius radio show 'Dirty Sexy Funny', she recalled the experience: "We're driving in the car and of course I text and drive. He called the police on me and said, 'My mom is texting and driving right now.' "

To avoid getting in trouble with the law, the 41-year-old star quickly grabbed her son's phone and launched it out of the window.

However, this isn't the first time Evan has called the police about his mother as he also rung them when she once sneaked out of the house for a cigarette and he became anxious about her whereabouts.

She explained: "He called 911 and said, 'I am alone in the house. My mom abandoned me.' I go back in the house and it's 911 and they're like, 'Your child just called. Is there an emergency?' I'm like, 'What? No!"

Meanwhile, the blonde beauty - who engaged to Donnie Wahlberg - recently left Evan "horrified" after she had the "birds and the bees" talk with him.

She said previously: "It was difficult ... but being the kind of single mom I've been, I've had to wear two hats and I'm proud to say that Evan will never be having sex for the rest of his life after my conversation."

Alec Baldwin refusing to apologise for bicycle incident

Alec Baldwin would "rather pay a fine" than apologise for allegedly bad-mouthing police officers in May.

The 56-year-old actor appeared in a Manhattan court today (07.24.14) in relation to a disorderly conduct charge after he cursed at officers who stopped him for riding his bicycle down the wrong way on Fifth Avenue.

Judge John Delury told the star: "Looks like you have a short fuse. You want to wait this out? Do you want to apologize?"

Alec shot back: "I'd rather pay the fine."

The judge questioned his response: "Than apologize?"

Alec, who was dressed in a black shirt, blue blazer and grey suit trousers, shook his head and said: "I just want to pay the fine."

Judge Delury then asked the 'It's Complicated' star if he can stay out of trouble from now on.

Alec replied: "Sure, sure"

The judge then said he'd dismiss the charge if Alec can stay out of trouble for six months, according to the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column.

The hunk was given two summons, one for traffic violation and a second for disorderly conduct, on May 13, 2014, after he allegedly went "ballistic" at two female officers when they asked him to provide identification following his push bike incident.

The star - who has 10-month-old daughter Carmen and 18-year-old daughter Ireland - took to his Twitter account after his arrest two months ago to share his version of events.

He tweeted at the time: "Officer Moreno arrested me and handcuffed me for going the wrong way on Fifth Ave."

Speaking on 'Good Morning America' yesterday (07.24.14), she said: "I'm having my hair be a rainbow, right now. I'm going through all the colors of the rainbow because I feel like I'm a rainbow.

"This is my new thing, I'm a rainbow. Before I used to dress a lot in black and now I've let color into my life. It's very metaphorical."

The 'Timber' hitmaker spent two months in rehab being treated for an eating disorder in January, and she admits since completing her stint she's made vast improvements, both mentally and physically.

She explained: "I'm doing really well ... I've been overwhelmed. The amount of love and support I've received is insane. It was really touching."

The stunning star insists her biggest accomplishment so far was learning to deal with the negative comments, which had once knocked her body confidence.

Asked what the most difficult part of her journey was, she said: "Just really learning to block out negativity and not letting hateful messages get to me, because I've received some pretty hateful things."

Duran Duran sue fan club

Duran Duran are suing their own fan club.

The 'Girls on Film' hitmakers have filed a $40,000 lawsuit against Worldwide Fan Clubs (WFC) for failing to deliver on several agreements in a contract signed in 2010.

WFC agreed to create and manage the band's fan club, and reportedly also agreed to be responsible for the sales and inventory of Duran Duran's merchandise, collect membership fees and maintain accounting records, with profits to be split 75-25 in the band's favour.

Lawyers acting for the 'Rio' hitmakers argue the company failed to keep accurate financial records and have not handed over agreed payments, the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper reports.

The group's Nick Rhodes admitted last year the band were busier than ever, with a photography book, a new album and a stage show all in the pipeline.

Discussing his own photography exhibition, he said: ''''The people who did the exhibition with me, the Vinyl Factory in London, would like to do a book because I have so much more than was even in the exhibition.

''We've started working on the new Duran album already too. I think it will be out sometime next year. And John Taylor and I are working on a musical together. That's something that we probably won't have finished for a year or more. We're keeping ourselves busy.''


Portia de Rossi wants a baby?

Portia de Rossi reportedly wants to have a baby.

The 41-year-old actress had initially ruled out having children with her wife Ellen DeGeneres, 56, whom she married in 2008, but it seems she's now changed her mind and is keen to start a family with her beau.

A source told InTouch magazine: "All Portia can talk about is beginning a new chapter in their lives and starting a family."

The couple have allegedly consulted the Center for Surrogate Parenting in Encino, California, to discuss their options, according to the magazine.

Meanwhile, the duo's relationship allegedly hit the rocks recently after an argument reportedly led to Portia seeking treatment in rehab in May for drug and alcohol problems, but they're keen to work through their issues.

A source said previously: "They've worked out difficulties in the past, and no doubt they're trying to work out any problems right now."

However, friends of the pair believe they will have patched up their differences by next month and will celebrate six years of marriage by renewing their vows.

The source said: "They both love to celebrate special occasions and holidays, and their wedding anniversary is no different. They usually celebrate with a big party and invite a lot of friends. They really are a lovely couple. They enjoy being married, and it shows."

Fitness freak Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan is a "fitness freak".

The 'Mean Girls' star loves working out and has been hitting the gym more than ever since relocating to London, where she is preparing to star in a West End production of play 'Speed-the-Plow' later this year, according to her blogger pal Vas J. Morgan.

He told new! magazine: "Now she's based in London she doesn't have many friends here, so I'm with her basically every day. We work out, she's a fitness freak!"

The 28-year-old actress, who had court-ordered rehabilitation treatment last year, has moved across the pond for a fresh start, Vas, 26, claims.

The reality TV star added: "She's focusing on work and trying to rid herself of the demons that follow her in New York and LA."

Vas, who runs a celebrity website and also counts Rita Ora among his pals, befriended Lindsay while in LA and the pair are now regulars at London's exclusive celebrity hotspot, Chiltern Firehouse.

However, recovering alcoholic Lindsay avoids the temptation for a drink when they visit.

The blogger boasted: "I go almost every night, I'm part of the furniture. There's a bar but when I go with Lindsay we don't want to be around that so we just chill out."
