Brad Pitt was assaulted yesterday on the red carpet for the Hollywood premiere of Maleficent. An L.A.P.D. spokesperson told Yahoo News that Brad and Angelina Jolie were signing autographs when a man jumped over the barrier and struck Brad in the face. Security wrestled the man to the ground and detained him until police showed up and he was charged with battery. The man was later identified as Ukrainian prankster Vitalii Sediuk. This is the same guy that stuck his head under America Ferrera's gown at the Cannes Film Festival.

 

Meanwhile there’s some good news for Brad Pitt. It looks like a sequel to World War Z is happening. The first movie grossed $540 million worldwide.

Last night Chelsea Handler announced that she’s putting Chelsea Lately to bed. The show, which has been on E! since 2007, is leaving the network.
Chelsea said: “I myself am more surprised than anyone that I was able to hold down a job for seven years, and it was a fantastic seven years. I will always look back at my time on E! as most people look back at their time in college. I’m glad I went.” The series finale of Chelsea Lately will air on August 26th.

 

Lady Gaga canceled her Seattle concert hours before she was expected to hit the stage after coming down with “horrible bronchitis.” Gaga wrote on Twitter yesterday, “I’m devastated I’m unable to perform this week. Ursula took my mermaid voice. I’ve come down with horrible Bronchitis.” There was an image from The Little Mermaid attached to the Tweet.

 

This is gross. Tori Spelling revealed during the season finale of their reality show True Tori that her husband, Dean McDermott has her name tattooed above his junk. Nasty.

 

The latest cover issue from OK! Magazine claims that Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick are getting divorced after seventeen years of marriage. Sarah and Matthew have reached their wit’s end when it comes to their relationship, and neither one of them wants to continue with the charade, despite having three children together. Apparently, Matthew and Sarah have spent the last six years fighting over cheating allegations from 2008, where Matthew reportedly cheated on Jessica.

 

Kim Kardashian changed her name on Twitter and Instagram to "Kim Kardashian West." It remains to be seen whether Kardashian will legally change her name. She took the last name of her first husband, Damon Thomas, when they married in 2000. She didn't change her name after her 2011 nuptials to Kris Humphries.

 

Here’s the breakdown of how much everything cost for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding: the white lace designer gown cost a whopping $500,000, the Italian venue was $410,000, her Balmain heels were $40,000, the Calcatta Vaticano marble table Kanye ordered for the wedding reception was $478,000, flowers designed by Fiori Della Signoria were $136,000, their 7-foot cake was $6,800, the hair and makeup ‘glam squad’ was estimated at $65,000 – and let’s not forget Andrea Bocelli performing for them, two private jets, a fleet of nearly 50 cars and family hotel rooms for both Paris and Florence (including an extra room just for her bridal wear) all added up to an estimated $12 million.

 

Rumors were going around that Lana Del Rey was paid almost $3 million to perform a three-song set at the Palace of Versailles on Friday at a pre-wedding party for Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. However, she's shot down that figure and says she was paid nothing because, "I would never let a friend pay me to sing at a wedding."

 

Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell have ended their marriage less than two years after they exchanged nuptials, and just nine months after the birth of their son. A spokesperson said yesterday “Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell have decided to separate. They both love and respect one another and will of course remain committed to co-parenting their son. This is a mutual decision and the two remain close friends.”

Scout Willis, the daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis took a stroll in NYC without her top on to protest Instagram’s anti-nudity policy. Scout retaliated by showing her own boobs off using the hashtag #freethenipple. The pictures were taken by a professional photographer and captioned “Legal in NYC but not on @instagram” and “What @Instagram won’t let you see.” Willis’s crusade against Instagram’s started last week, when the site removed a photo of a sweatshirt she designed that featured an image of two topless models. Yawn.
