Dr. Arnie Klein, Physician for Michael Jackson, Has Died

No, not the physician that killed him (at least not directly). Michael Jackson's longtime physician and friend Dr. Arnold Klein passed away on Thursday at the age of 70. Klein was called "The Father of Botox." He was also rumoured to be the biological father of Michael Jackson's son Prince, although TMZ reports that neither Dr. Klein or Michael Jackson are the biological father of Prince Jackson.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Nobody Messes With My Little Girl

This celebrity Mom is so protective over her daughter that she single-handedly sabotaged her daughter’s relationship!

[Celebrity] just didn’t like [the Daughter’s Boyfriend]. She read all the messages the kids had exchanged (without Daughter knowing) and decided that she didn’t like the way he was speaking to Daughter and that he was too controlling and making Daughter feel bad about herself.

She sent the Daughter some messages from a fake account pretending to be someone who used to be friends with the Boyfriend and accused him of all kinds of things. Her plan worked, because Daughter and Boyfriend had a big fight and broke up right afterward!

I asked her if any of the accusations she made were true, and she basically said that it didn’t matter and that the only thing that mattered was that her messages did the trick and that Daughter was now safe. “Nobody messes with MY little girl!”

Given the Mom’s own rich relationship history, it’s interesting that she is now so controlling about who the daughter dates.

Bill Murray Did Another Reddit AMA

Bill Murray recently did a Reddit AMA, and it was everything you would hope for. Here are some of the highlights:

On the best party he's ever crashed:
"Well, we crashed a famous party called the subway party to celebrate the premiere of Tommy, in the 70s. It was Gilda Radner, Belushi, Harold Ramis, Joe Flaherty, Brian Doyle Murray, and we were all plus 1, probably. It was biggest party ever in NYC at the time. You couldn't get into this party. It was an inner circle thing. It was at an enclosed subway stop, it was a roar. It was a scream. If you made an airport movie with everyone on the plane is a celebrity, it was like that times 10. We were doing a show in the restaurant cabaret, the guys catering were the same guys who gave us left over french fries, we went into the backdoor to the subway with everyone. Everyone saying hi, hello. And we felt like we didn't belong at all. It was so fantastic. I have compassion when people say dumb stuff to me. I said to Andy Warhol "I love the soup can" and he looked at me like "You don't belong here." What a time that was."

On The best and worst part about being Bill Murray:
"The worst thing about it, they're one in the same: You wish you could walk down the street and look at things and watch things uninterrupted. The shock of being recognized brings you out of this place where you're just trying to take it in. Its an obligation and you're reminded you have to show up. It's a coin with two sides. As much as I don't like the one side, the other side is what might save me."

On Rodney Dangerfield:
"There are not many people alive who could party with Rodney. He would have left you all for dead. He really went hard, he was fun. He was funny. The thing that's notable about the movie, there's several great comedians in the movie. Crazy different styles. Ted Knight is different from Chevy, who is different from Rodney who is different than my brother. Henry Wilcoxon, he was like the original Antony in Antony and Cleopatra. He came here, a savage hunk and then in our movie, he's playing a bishop! In my free time on the movie, I spent it with him. That's who I wanted to talk to, that's who had an irony and experience beyond us. He was super cool."

On which reality show he would choose to be on:
"Flavor Of Love. The idea that he had some of the most, would I consider maybe not the most desirable women in the world, they were really nutty. I mean really crazy. I'd think The Amazing Race. It was like a show I watched in Paris, similar to that. One episode I saw, they had to fight their way to the top of a hotel in Singapore, and answer impossible questions. I used to watch it just to see people completely fall apart. They would try to answer, and it would kill them. But The Amazing Race looks like a lot of fun. You get to go to a bunch of places. It calls on all your skills. I tell people, if you want to get married, travel around the world first. Cause then you get to know people better. Its a test of wills to travel. I think The Amazing Race would be fun."

Neil DeGrasse Tyson Dishes on Star Talk Guests

People recently sat down with Neil DeGrasse Tyson and got him to dish on some of his Star Talk guests for the National Geographic Channel, which returns Sunday night. Here's what he had to say:

On Bill Clinton:
"Not that we're beer-drinking buddies, but he knows me and my work. And I was delighted to learn how much he reads about science. If he had another kind of life to lead, he might be a scientist. He's an avid science enthusiast. We took it back into his administration, and he shared with me some of the struggles he had with getting funding for things. It under his watch we lost the super conducting super collider that went to CERN, which discovered the Higgs Boson. 

What he said was that they had a bill that was ready to pass and the only sticking point was that super collider. All the other elements of it had bipartisan support. What I wanted to get a little more deeply – and I never got there – was, 'At what point do you continue to invest political capital to get something to happen, knowing you might lose it down the line for something else that you might value?' These are the hard decisions that any good politician's going to have to make."

On Larry Wilmore:
What a character! He's the biggest geek in the West. And, he's also magician. The man is literally a magician. He pulled out a deck of cards, when he was here. I don't know if it made it into the final edit, but he made something disappear. Then we talked about Star Wars

On Susan Sarandon:
She's quite the political activist. We talked about … Let me remember …. Yes! We talked about drugs! Now how much of that – it still has to get through Nat Geo, but, we are on pretty late, so you'd think they'd let some of that slip in there. She wanted to know whether altered states of consciousness enhance or detract from our appreciation and understanding of the physical universe. Because … Susan Sarandon thinks deeply about what roles drugs plays in your consciousness. 

On David Crosby:
Crosby is a huge science fiction fan, so we talked about that. He read every bit of science fiction he could get his hands on as a kid before he ever wrote a musical note. He also loves Star Trek and the fact that many of these science fiction authors wrote for the show.

Snooki Blames Jersey Shore Behaviour On Junk Food

Snooki recently sat down for an interview with Yahoo Beauty, where she blamed her behaviour on Jersey Shore on poor nutrition. The site quotes her as follows:

"When I stopped drinking and started eating lots of greens, whole grains, and lean meats, it was like my brain woke up from a five-year coma. My life turned around, and things clicked into place in my relationship and my career. What goes into your body comes out in your life. If you want success, love, and the strength to cope with anything life throws at you, feed your body the healthy food it needs."

On whether or not she'll let her kids watch Jersey Shore:
"I mean, I have nothing to hide. It's not like I killed anyone. People are like, 'What about when you're 50!' and I tell them, 'I'm not a murderer. I literally had fun on TV when I was 21, so it's not a big deal.' I'll have to explain to [my kids] that 'Mommy was 21 years old, and I would go to bars and clubs, and I had fun.' So hopefully you can learn from my mistakes.'"

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Cancelled Reality Show

This reality show that was once a highly rated success and one of the leaders in the franchise has been cancelled. It won’t be back, despite the fame of the show.


What is our reality show?

Kardashian Korner

Nothing like a near-death experience to save a marriage! TMZ reports that Khloe Kardashian and husband Lamar Odom have filed documents to call off their divorce proceedings. A judge has already signed off on the request, so the two continue to be married til death do them part. I know most people think this is a cynical move on Khloe's part, but I can't help it, I totally ship these two. Here's hoping these two crazy kids can make it work!

In other news, Amber Rose recently sat down for an interview with GQ, where she talked about The Kardashians. The magazine quotes her as follows:

“I really went in on Tyga. He’d been texting Blac Chyna, saying, ‘I really want my family back’—but he was out with a 17-year-old...I said [to Khloe], ‘Your sister has a career because your other sister made a sex tape and put the whole family on.’ I think it’s fucking awesome that she did a sex tape and made millions of dollars for her family. But let’s not forget where we came from. Because I didn’t. She probably had a fucking blast. And guess what? At the time she was in love with that guy. So don’t think you’re better than me, because we’ve all had trials and tribulations.”

The Weeknd Talks Dating

The Weeknd, 25, recently sat down for an interview with Rolling Stone, where he opened up about his dating life. The magazine quotes him as follows:

On girlfriend Bella Hadid, 19:
"I actually asked her to be on the artwork for Beauty Behind the Madness. My motive was literally to work with her. I was like, 'All right, cool — we can meet up face-to-face.' It just kind of fell into my lap. If this had happened two years ago — well... she couldn't. If I'd met someone two years ago, I probably would've fucked it up. But I'm more — how do I say it? — clear-thinking now."

On losing his virginity at a Toga Party at 16:
"I could have been a student at f--kin' McDonald's, she was so drunk. I was drunk too. It was the worst experience of my life. Losing your virginity to an older woman sounds good, but it was kinda like, 'Oh shit, it's done?'"

On his success:
"I think the worst thing anyone can say about an artist is, 'He could have been great.' I was always scared of being that guy where it's like, 'He could have been big. He could have been a star.' I was afraid I'd see somebody else up there and be like, 'You're trying to tell me they're better than me? Why? Because they've got a couple of smash records? I can do smashes. I could figure it out.' And to be honest with you, it's been, what, a couple of years now? And it feels great. I feel great."

Hollywood Street King Blind Item - Still Under Contract

Today’s blind item’s recent near death experience will be part of his wife’s story-line on her families reality show.

Our blind item is still under contract with the E Network, bound to make a certain number of appearances on the hit reality show. His wife his currently planning to use her husbands recent tragedy for television ratings gold.

Dig the Drop:

“Her mother told her to stay by his bedside at the hospital and to be at his side when he goes to rehab only to get ratings for their dying reality show”


Can you guess who I’m talking about?

Drew Barrymore Opens Up About Postpartum Depression

Drew Barrymore recently sat down for an interview with People, where she opened up about suffering from postpartum depression after the birth of her second child, daughter Frankie, 18 months. The magazine quotes her as follows:

“I didn’t have postpartum the first time so I didn’t understand it because I was like, ‘I feel great!’ The second time, I was like, ‘Oh, whoa, I see what people talk about now. I understand.’ It’s a different type of overwhelming with the second. I really got under the cloud ... I just got right on the idea of, where do I need to be the most? Fifty-fifty would be ideal but life doesn’t work like that. Life is messy. It was just really challenging and I felt overwhelmed. I made a lot of decisions and I definitely changed my work life to suit my parenthood.

It’s really important. I was in the kids’ class with Frankie and Olive this morning and I started fretting about some piece of work news that was just stressful. You know, in like the Broadway Babies class and it’s the one-hit wonders day, and they’re singing I don’t even know what song, and we’re all doing our lollipop drums and I just thought, ‘Save it until after class.’ One thing at a time.

Putting a negative stigma on work is a go-to. It makes us feel like it proves to our children that we don’t want to work, we’d rather be with you. I want them to see that work can be a good, positive, fun, happy thing. I’ve worked since I was 11½ months old so I have to be able to work, too. But I have to put them first. I don’t know if it’s good enough for anyone but I’m doing my best.”

Celebrity Real Estate - Shawn White Edition

Snowboarder Shaun White just picked up an Outpost Estates contemporary for $6.4 million. The 4,500 square foot home features five bedrooms, five full bathrooms plus one additional shitter, and a swimming pool with a view. See pictures of the home at Variety.

Sofia Loren Hates Selfies

Actress Sofia Loren recently spoke to Page Six about today's celebrity culture. The publication quotes her as follows:

“These young girls really need to be more careful and selective of what they are doing to their bodies and their faces. I mean, you do not know for sure if you are going to a good doctor . . . you can end up looking worse than what you thought you originally were. In my time, an actress’ merit and skill was based on her talent. Now when people meet me, they pull out their phones to take pictures. I do not know much about social media, but it seems that that’s what makes people more famous. My era of Hollywood was much better — you were known for your skill and talent. I was very lucky to be a part of that time.”


Danzig Does Not Approve Of Fan Photography

Glenn Danzig, 60, is not amused by people attempting to take photographs of him. After all, he is a rare work of art that should not be mimeographed. Have you ever tried to take a picture of an angry rhino? Because Glenn Danzig responds the exact same way. Some newbie didn't get that memo, and TMZ reports that Neil Dalton (allegedly) got the crap beaten out of him by Danzig and his security. Whatever you do, do not take photographs of Glenn Danzig. Or make disparaging remarks about his mother.


Lark Voorhies Getting Quicky Divorce After Quicky Marriage

They said it wouldn't last, and they were right! Remember when Lark Voorhies got married in Vegas in April and her mother got a restraining order against Lark's new husband? Well, TMZ reports that Lark has filed for divorce, and is requesting that husband Jimmy Green be denied any spousal support. Jimmy told TMZ that the only reason he didn't file for divorce was because he didn't know how. Cool story, bro.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Some Not So Nice Music Reviews

Although this song is going to get a lot of airplay soon, not everyone is a fan. In fact, some of this singer’s musical colleagues had a few not-so-nice things to say about it.

Holy shit. Everything after the intro is bad. I mean the singing, the pacing, the chorus… everything. EVERYTHING. Just bad.

And:
What’s up with the falsetto? What a godawful choice for a big ballad.

And:
Unsingable. Unlistenable.

And:
It would work… if you took out everything after the downbeat. (BG Note: The downbeat occurs right after the instrumental intro, before the singing starts.)

And:
Somebody needs to beg Adele to come back NOW.

And:
I will give you $1000 right now if you promise me that I will never have to listen to that song again.

Ouch.

Jaden Smith Talks Future Disappearance

Jaden Smith recently sat down for an interview with GQ, and at just 17 years old, he is giving both Kanye West and Terrence Howard a run for their money in the epic interview department. Here's what he had to say:

Just like Kanye and Terrence, Jaden Smith invents his own math:
“Me and my sister started this initiative called Mystery School. It dates back to like ancient Egypt, ancient Greece—like Plato, Pythagoras, all these students had mystery schools. And what they learned in there was sacred. They would learn the math and sciences of that generation, and then they would build the cities and give that energy and that knowledge to the other people. And a lot of stuff they would keep really, really to themselves. Like, you couldn't say the word dodecahedron, which is just a shape, outside of one of the mystery schools or they would, like, kill you or whatever. Because it was such a sacred shape.”

On people thinking he's crazy:
“It's fun, bro. That's what a lot of people don't realize. It's fun. It's so much fun. It's the best thing. People think you're crazy—I feel like it's an honor, actually, for people to think I'm crazy. Because they thought Galileo was crazy, too, you know what I'm saying? I don't think I'm as revolutionary as Galileo, but I don't think I'm not as revolutionary as Galileo.”

On building his own pyramid:
“Like, the clothes I'm wearing right now, done it on my own. I built my own bed, I built my own closet, um, I built two closets, I built four beds, I built, um, one pyramid— It's at my parents' house. Half of a pyramid. The tip is missing, but the whole structural thing is built, and it sits at 12.5 feet tall. I'll Instagram a picture of it once this comes out, so people know what I'm talking about...Because it's supposed to be 14 feet tall or 16 feet tall, but the tip of the Giza pyramid is actually cut off. There's no tip. It's missing. So I was like, ‘I want to have a missing tip on here, too.’ Because I copied the exact 57.1 degrees that the Giza pyramid is. Obviously I don't have two miniature pyramids next to it. But I have a little pyramid in my actual room, too. One that's just like three feet tall.”

And on his plans for the future:
“No one will know where I am in ten years. They'll see me pop up, but they'll be like, ‘Where'd you come from?’ No one will know. No one will know where I'm at. No one will know who I'm with. No one will know what I'm doing. I've been planning that since I was like 13. It'll be kind of like Banksy. But in a different way. More of a social impact. Helping people. But through art installations. It'll be like, ‘This just happened that helped a bunch of people over here. We don't know who did it, but these symbols and things were left around, so we can only guess that it's Jaden and the squad.’ You know what I'm saying? So I'm just dedicating my whole life to helping the world.”

Sandra Bullock Tells Son That Racism Exists

Sandra Bullock recently sat down for an interview with BET, where she talked about having to inform son Louis, 5, that racism exists. People quotes her as follows:

"It's an open conversation we have. He fully understands what that means. He doesn't understand why people judge each other based on color of the skin, but he knows they do. He also knows that there's sexism, he knows that there's homophobia – he knows a lot for a 5¾-year-old, but I think if you don't start the conversation very early on, you're doing them a disservice. I want him to know the truth, but I also want him to know the good in the world as well, but those are hard conversations to have.

It's not a conversation any parent wants to have with their child, that you'll be judged by the color of your skin rather than the content of your character, but it exists and I want him to be safe and I want him to be aware. I want to know that I did the best I could as his mom to educate him on the ugliness in the world and also the beauty." 

And in a separate interview, in response to Jennifer Lawrence's Essay about the Wage Gap:
"I think the wage gap is a result of something bigger. I've said this so many times but no one can seem to give me an answer or wants to answer. It's just, why are women thought of as less than? Why have we allowed that thought? And I'm blaming myself as well: Why have I allowed that thought process to be around me?

I think you need someone like Jennifer Lawrence, who's hugely respected and successful, to stop and say, you know what, I know I have all these blessings, but here are the facts – it still happens to me. It made me go, 'Oh my god. Everything I just said was not even heard.' ... I knew that I was just merely a pawn, and that opened my eyes a lot. So thank god for Jennifer Lawrence and her ability to write and to point the finger at herself – she was incredibly, incredibly brave. There's a lot of public shaming going on these days when people speak truthfully, and I think that's why everyone's gotten really scared to voice an opinion. And that makes me really sad for my son. Really sad."

Elton John just picked up Armand Marciano (the co-founder of Guess?)'s Beverly Hills mansion for $32.67 million.

Amy Schumer Talks Squad Goals

People recently caught up with Amy Schumer at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards, where she talked to them about female friendships. The magazine quotes her as follows:

"I would like to join any squad that would have me as a member. I think it's really interesting that this phrasing has popped up. Like all of a sudden, it's not just your friends any more. You're a squad. It kind of makes it sound more powerful. I'm all for it."

On Hollywood's gender pay gap:
"You know me, I'm like 'let's fucking go.' When you start out, you're like, 'Oh, I just want to get a job and whatever.' And then you start to feel more powerful and you really do have something to say." 

On Roles She Would Like for Women:
"Like, them playing human beings instead of, like, caricatures from the 1920s. I want women to lift each [other] up. Get more and more powerful and understand their worth."

Bryce Dallas Howard Talks Raising Kids In Hollywood

Actress Bryce Dallas Howard recently spoke to People about how she and husband actor Seth Gabel are raising their kids Theodore, 8, and Beatrice, 3½, around Hollywood. The magazine quotes her as follows:

"What my parents did that was great was they exposed all of us to movie sets and making movies and the crew. We had a very deep understanding of the kind of work that my dad did. We weren’t exposed to the side of the industry that’s perceived as being more glamorous, where actors are coddled and where there’s a certain level of celebrity. We were completely sheltered from that. I think that that was a good call. I don’t walk around and have people recognize me, really; I live a pretty straightforward, simple life.

But so far so good. It’s such an awesome thing to get to travel with them and for them to get to see that my husband and I get to do creative work that we’re really excited about and we’re really inspired by. It’s really fun for us and rewarding and challenging in all the right ways. I feel really grateful for that.”

On whether or not her children will end up in show biz: 
“They’re hilarious people, [but] I don’t really know if they have a very full sense of what I do for my work. That remains to be seen. I’m not looking at them through that lens very much."

On working with father Ron Howard:
"I wish! I wish! I don’t want to offend him, but I keep saying, ‘Someone’s getting older here! And that’s me, and you’re not going to want me. Let’s deal with this now. Please, please!’ But he’s going to be making movies forever, for decades to come, and hopefully, I’ll be allowed to as well. Out of all of my dreams, I want to be working with my dad.”

On being mistaken for Jessica Chastain:
"Which only happens when I’m wearing makeup, and I look my best, incidentally. With no makeup, I look nothing like her, sadly!”

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Toss Another Trust Issue Onto The Pile

This TV and film Actress had a very messy split from her Athlete boyfriend years ago. Since then, Actress has never spoken ill of Athlete.

However, the same can’t be said about the female celebrity who the Athlete was seeing at the time of the break up!

Even though she eventually married the Athlete, to this day the Wife does NOT trust the Actress!

[Wife] has got some big trust issues with [Athlete] and she is annoyed that [Actress] is one of those people who just can’t just go away. She calls Actress “The Stalker” because Actress always wants to know where Athlete is. Wife thinks that if she ever left them alone in a room for two minutes that Actress would make another play for Athlete!

When Athlete was talking about Actress recently, Wife just lost it. She was saying, “What are you, obsessed with her? Stop talking about her already!” It didn’t help that a couple of days after this conversation Wife caught him reading something about Actress online.

Just one more conflict to toss onto the messy pile of Athlete and Wife’s marital woes!

The Gossip Life Blind Item - DC vs Marvel

In case you didn’t know DC vs Marvel isn’t just an argument that fanboys have, it’s actually two competing comic book companies with adaptations licensed by competing studios, and the rivalry between the two can get pretty heated. One C-list actress is under contract of one of these companies for a – I’ll be honest – pretty minor part, and the feelers were put out to see if she could come over to the rival studio to play an A-list + role in one of the their upcoming movies. She’d have earned more fame, money and exposure, but the employer shut it down and the part went to someone else. She’s still reeling from it.


Who is our C-list actress?

Kardashian Korner

Us Weekly reports that Lamar Odom's condition continues to improve, and that he will be moved to a rehabilitation facility in Los Angeles sometime this week, so that still-wife Khloe Kardashian and her mother Kris Jenner can be closer to him. In related news, Metta World Peace, who grew up with Odom and played with him on the Lakers, had the following to say to the Los Angeles Daily News about celebrities coming to visit Lamar (including the Kardashians): "This is nothing against Khloe [Kardashian]. This is for the celebrities that are coming to see Lamar. They should know they’re taking time away from Lamar’s children. The only Kardashian that needs to be there is Khloe. Not every Kardashian needs to be around. They need to keep it simple, so Lamar’s children can see him whenever they want to see him. They’re waiting in line to see their own father.”

Lainey Gossip Blind Item - I Guess She's Into Skeeves?

Last time we blinded about her, she’d had an affair on set with a married actor with a skeevy character vibe. His marriage is still intact. Another marriage, however, has ended. And she was, again, involved. Once again it started as a working situation. Of the two of them, she’s definitely more well-known. But even if you don’t know him by name, he books steady jobs, and his face should be familiar to you. He too is good at playing assholes.

When they met, she had a boyfriend and he was about to celebrate a milestone with his wife. Stage life and real life soon blurred, they were hooking up in and out of character, and she was texting him explicitly. They couldn’t let it go after wrapping up production. Which is why he’s not married anymore. He left his wife for her. According to their inner circle, they were so into each other that she followed him while he was on anniversary holiday in Europe with his wife. He would make up excuses during that trip to slip away and spend time with her. Eventually her boyfriend busted her and they broke up. He ended up filing for divorce in August and they insist they’re just friends, that nothing shady went down, that no one knows the real story. But those who saw all of it go down say they’re totally together now but are trying to put enough distance between the end of the marriage and their coming out so that people won’t suspect how they started, if that is, they last that long.

Showgirls Director Takes Blame For Movie

If I had directed the majestic motion picture that is Showgirls, I would be stepping up to claim credit, not to apologize. But director Paul Verhoeven has a different take on the matter, which her recently discussed with People magazine. Here are some of his thoughts on the film:

On Charlize Theron almost being cast as the lead:
"She was good and wanted the part, but basically she was not well known enough at the time and just did not fit the part, so we said no. I have full respect for Charlize, but if she had been offered the part then she would probably have been chewed up in the same way they treated Elizabeth [Berkley]. She was very lucky that she did not get the part." 

On Elizabeth Berkley becoming an outcast in Hollywood:
"It was all my fault. Showgirls certainly ruined the career of Elizabeth Berkley in a major way. It made my life more difficult, but not to the degree it did Elizabeth's. Hollywood turned their backs on her. If somebody has to be blamed, it should be me because I thought that it was interesting to portray somebody like that."

On Elizabeth Berkley's (bad?) acting in the film:
"I asked Elizabeth to do all that – to be abrupt and to act in that way, but people have been attacking her about that ever since. In retrospect, Elizabeth may have regretted being so heavily involved with the movie and being so vulnerable to her critics, but when we did it we never had the feeling that this would happen. Hollywood was pissed off with her because she went further than any actress has gone or will go and I think they have never forgiven her. Her performance pushed the limits and that worried them. They were just so shocked by the movie that they hated her. Elizabeth could only have recovered from the movie by being offered a very different role, but that just didn't happen for her, otherwise she would have taken the job. New roles were never offered, so it was impossible for her to make a comeback."

Duh, Hollywood. Showgirls was Oscar-worthy. Long Live Nomi Malone!


Blake Shelton Suing In Touch For Calling Him A Drunk Sloppy Mess

In Touch recently had Blake Shelton on their cover with the headline: "Rehab for Blake - He Finally Hits Rock Bottom." TMZ reports that Shelton was not in the mood for jokes the day the magazine came out, and is now suing In Touch's parent company for $2 million. One of the specific items he's suing over is the claim that "Blake's drinking and womanizing are what helped torpedo his 4-year marriage." Um, are these depositions going to be made public? Because I would like to hear what both Blake and Miranda have to say!
