JUSTIN APOLOGIZES FOR HOMELESS WEDDING VIDEO
Justin Timberlake apologized Friday for the video mocking homeless people made by his friend for the singer’s $6.5 million Italian wedding to Jessica Biel. In the letter Justin calls the video “distasteful,” and explains that contrary to reports, it was not shown at the wedding and he had nothing to do with its creation. "I am deeply sorry to anyone who was offended by [it],” he writes. "I was always taught that we as people, no matter what your race, sex, or stature may be, are equal." As for the friend who made the video, Justin writes, “My friends are good people. This was clearly a lapse in judgment which I'm sure no one who is reading this is exempt from. But, I don't believe it was made to be insensitive." He adds, “You can bet your ass that I'm having my friend do at least 100 hours of community service... Boom."

BIEBS DISCUSSES GOMEZ RELATIONSHIP WITH OPRAH

Jessica Simpson’s father Joe Simpson has denied tabloid rumors that he’s gay (check out his very manly new look), but Radoronline claims to have uncovered a 21-year-old aspiring model who told friends he was Joe’s lover. The site claims Bryce Chandler Hill has been dating Joe on and off for a year. “Joe Simpson being outed by the National Enquirer was no surprise to the gay community in Hollywood, Bryce has been bragging about hooking up with Joe for a while now,” a source revealed. “Bryce claims he’s been dating Joe for roughly a year and absolutely loves to boast about it because he loves being the center of attention. He’s also been quick to tell anyone that will listen that he’s using Joe to climb the showbiz ladder.” Unfortunately for Joe, Bryce seems to be using him to get famous because the insiders say Bryce “mocks and laughs at Joe behind his back. He doesn’t care for him the same way Joe does about him.”
