LINDSAY ARRESTED FOR ALLEGED ASSAULT AT NYC NIGHTCLUB/FACING CHARGES FOR PREVIOUS CAR CRASH!
Another day, another Lindsay Lohan arrest. The troubled actress was hauled off by cops in the wee hours of yesterday morning for allegedly punching a fellow Manhattan nightclub goer in the face. Lindsay was charged with third-degree assault and taken to the precinct where she was given a desk appearance ticket. TMZ reported that while at the club Avenue, Lindsay told the woman to give her some space, then reportedly hit her in the face. New York’s Daily News named the other woman as Tiffany Eve Mitchell, of West Palm Beach, Fla., who was at Avenue with her husband. Early reports said Mitchell and Lohan were sitting in separate VIP sections when a scuffle erupted elsewhere in the club, and Mitchell possibly bumped into Lohan in order to avoid getting involved. But TMZ later reported that the fight was over a boy - specifically, a boy bander. Apparently, Lindsay had attended a Justin Bieber concert earlier that night in order to catch the opening act, British boy band The Wanted. She had her sights set on band member Max George and the two hit up Avenue together. But Max was reportedly “turned off” by Lilo’s alleged drunkenness and started hitting on Mitchell, and that's when Lindsay decided to take matters into her own hands...or, uh, fists.
Meanwhile, Lindsay is also facing three charges in California in connection with her June car accident on the Pacific Coast Highway. She allegedly rammed her Porsche into a big rig, and then lied to cops about being the driver. She was reportedly being charged with giving false information to a peace officer, obstructing or resisting a police officer in the performance of his duty, and reckless driving.

HALLE BERRY SELLING HER HOUSE!
Halle Berry is reportedly selling her Hollywood Hills home – the site of the Thanksgiving Day brawl between her ex, Gabriel Aubry, and current fiancé Olivier Martinez. According to TMZ, the 46-year-old actress gave a prominent realtor a so-called “pocket listing” a few weeks ago, meaning the mansion would be listed as for sale but not advertised. It’s on the market for $15 million. The house has five bedrooms, a pool, a spa and a guest house. Meanwhile, police investigating the Aubry/Martinez fight believe Aubry was the instigator – despite Aubry’s claims that Martinez started it. Still, he won’t be facing criminal charges.
MIDDLE EAST DOESN’T LIKE KIM KARDASHIAN!
The Middle East hasn’t exactly welcomed Kim Kardashian with open arms. The reality star is currently in Kuwait to help launch a Millions of Milkshakes franchise in the country, and she will be visiting Bahrain to do the same. But many in the conservative and religious nations have blasted her appearances. “Her values clash with our traditions as a religiously committed people,” Mohammad Al Tabtabai, a Kuwaiti preacher, said. “Her visit could help spread vice among our youth.” And in Bahrain, conservative lawmakers tried to keep her from visiting the island nation, arguing that she is “an actress with an extremely bad reputation.” Still, Kardashian tweeted how excited she was to be visiting the two countries for the first time.
In other Kardashian news, Khloe confirmed on The Ellen DeGeneres show this week that she and husband Lamar Odom were photoshopped into the family holiday card picture this year.

JUDE LAW OK WITH NOT BEING YOUNG AND PRETTY!
Jude Law’s not a “young pretty thing” anymore, and that’s fine by him! In a cover story with the latest issue of T, The New York Times Style Magazine, the 39-year-old actor speaks about his new, more mature image in Hollywood. “In a weird way, it’s kind of a relief to think, ‘Oh, I know I’m not that young sort of pretty thing anymore. It’s quite nice talking about what it was like to be the young pretty thing, rather than being it,” he said. And his latest role in Anna Karenina is definitely a departure from the hunky roles he used to play. “It seemed to go against everything I have done, and it was fun to investigate the sides of a man that I hadn’t done before in any way, shape or form, because I always play against type; I have never played anyone like me,” he told the mag.
Q- Law was nominated for two Academy Awards – once in 1999 for Best Supporting Actor and again in 2003 for Best Actor. What movies was he nominated for? The Talented Mr. Ripley and Cold Mountain

DEPARDIEU ARRESTED FOR DRUNK SCOOTER DRIVING!
French actor Gerard Depardieu was arrested in Paris yesterday for driving his scooter while drunk. The 63-year-old got into a minor accident and fell from the scooter, slightly injuring his elbow. The incident came just months after a car driver filed a legal complaint for assault and battery against Depardieu in August following an altercation. And who can forget last year, when Depardieu urinated in the aisle of an Air France flight as it prepared for takeoff. The plane was forced to turn back around.
