ANGUS T. JONES ISSUES AN APOLOGY!
After sparking a media storm with his disparaging comment about Two and a Half Men, young star Angus T. Jones has now issued an apology. In the statement released yesterday, the 19-year-old makes it clear that he has the utmost respect for everyone involved on Two and a Half Men and calls the show “one of the most significant experiences in my life to date.” He also stated, “I apologize if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed. I never intended that.” On Monday, a Christian church video surfaced in which Jones blasted the show as “filth” and told people to stop watching. Meanwhile, former Men star Charlie Sheen decided to weigh in on the comments. “With Angus's Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it is radically clear to me that the show is cursed," Sheen told People.
ASHLEE AND BOYFRIEND SPLIT!
It’s splitsville for Ashlee Simpson and boyfriend Vincent Piazza. The couple called it quits after a year and a half of dating, the New York Post’s Page Six reported. "Vincent has been working a lot, so he hasn't been able to spend as much time with Ashlee, which has caused some problems," a source told the paper. The decision to split was apparently a mutual one between the 28-year-old singer and the Boardwalk Empire actor. The source said they might even be able to reconcile at some point. Simpson has a four-year-old son with ex-husband Pete Wentz.
Q- What is Simpson’s son’s unusual name? Bronx Mowgli

"I am getting more pressure from my kids, and it is something I want to do within their lifetime, but I also feel like the time has come," he said. He then added, "It's soon. I got a good feeling about it." The 48-year-old has been with Jolie, 37, for seven years and they have six children together - Maddox, 11, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 6, and 4-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. They got engaged this past spring.

3RD ACCUSER COMES FORWARD IN CLASH CASE!
The problems just aren’t going away for Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash. A third accuser has come forward with allegations against him. The new accuser, known only as 28-year-old “John Doe,” filed a lawsuit in Manhattan yesterday accusing Clash of having a sexual relationship with him when he was still 16. A rep for Clash said yesterday, “Mr. Clash believes this lawsuit has no merit.” Clash resigned from Sesame Street last week after a second accusation of having a sexual relationship with a minor.
MINAJ ACCUSES TYLER OF BEING RACIST!
Current American Idol judge Nicki Minaj is hitting back at comments made by former AI judge Steven Tyler. She said it was “racist” of Tyler to say that she’d probably reject Bob Dylan if he had appeared as a contestant on the show. In an interview with MTV News Monday, Tyler compared the present judging panel to the judging panel when he was on the show. “If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield! Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out, as we did with Phillip Phillips. Just saying,” the Aerosmith singer said. Minaj responded with furious tweets yesterday: “You assume that I wouldn’t have liked Bob Dylan??? why? black? rapper? what?”
