FEARS BROOKE MUELLER

CHARLIE SHEEN’S TROUBLED EX-WIFE HITS ROCK BOTTOM AS SHE FLIPS OUT IN A BAR — WITH THEIR 7-YEAR-OLD TWINS IN TOW.

E

THE KIDS SUFFER

Brooke brought her and Charlie’s twin sons, Max and Bob (below), into a bar at night during her recent incident.

VEN with Brooke Mueller’s long history of drug and alcohol abuse, the latest meltdown by Charlie Sheen’s former wife — the mother of their twin sons, Max and Bob — has dragged her down to a sad new level. Incredibly, Brooke, 39, brought her 7-yearold sons, as well as a nanny, along with her when she wandered barefoot into a Salt Lake City bar late on the evening of Nov. 15. The police were called when Brooke began fighting with the nanny, reportedly after begging patrons for a cigarette. She was gone by the time the cops arrived — as she was again later in the evening, after a caller told police Brooke was at a car wash and claimed she was beating her sons. Utah state troopers eventually located Brooke, her children and the nanny on Interstate 15, and at press time she was being hospitalized on a three-day psychiatric hold. “Ironically, Brooke had moved to Utah to try to get away from the party scene, but she just can’t seem to get a handle on herself,” a source says of the former actress, who divorced Sheen, 51, in 2011 after three years of marriage; her past problems include arrests for DUI and cocaine possession and four reported trips to rehab. “And you’d have to think that Brooke’s mental strain increased tenfold after Charlie went public a year ago with his HIV-positive diagnosis,” the source adds. “Thankfully, she says she and the children are clean — but she obviously has a long road ahead of her to conquer the demons of her own making. Her friends and family are hoping for the best.” ★ DECEMBER 5, 2016

to hold off on practicing her royal wave. Sources reveal exclusively to Star that while Prince Harry is head over heels for his American actress girlfriend, his father Prince Charles isn’t nearly as smitten. In fact, he’s branded Harry’s new romance “a disaster waiting to happen!” “Charles doesn’t think she’s right for the royal family,” admits a palace insider, explaining that the heir apparent has had several sit-downs with his mother, Queen Elizabeth, who shares his concerns.

about Meghan,” says the source.“She’s ‘too Hollywood,’ isn’t an aristocrat, is divorced, and she’s done some really sexy photo shoots and raunchy scenes — she’s just not princess material.” Plus, there’s the fear that Harry will produce an heir with Meghan only to have the romance — and royal line of succession — fall apart. “If they have a child then break up, things will get very messy if she wants to take the kids back to America,” explains the tattler. “Nothing like that has happened in England’s history.”

After all, no one’s seen Harry this happy in years.” Sounds like Meghan suits him just fine! ★

Cate’s not having it.” Neither is the rest of the all-female cast, including Sandra Bullock, Dakota Fanning, Helena BonhamCarter, Mindy Kaling and Rihanna. “Cate is very laid-back, but Anne took that as a sign that she could boss her around,” says the spy, and while Anne’s camp denies it, tension between the two A-listers reached a boiling point. “She and Cate exchanged some angry words the other day and haven’t spoken since.” Maybe the devil doesn’t wear Prada, after all… ★

ENNIFER Garner looked positively radiant. Sporting workout clothes and sneakers, the actress appeared happy and relaxed on Nov. 14 as she grabbed breakfast to go at an eatery in L.A.’s Brentwood neighborhood, while her husband, Ben Affleck, waited in the car and enjoyed some playful one-on-one time with their 4-year-old son, Samuel. And it seems that Jen has every reason to smile: Star has learned that she and Ben are back together — and that there may be a baby on the way! “Jen took Ben back because, against all odds, he made good on his promise to clean up his act and be a better husband,” an insider tells Star. “And to top it all off, their friends now believe that Jen is pregnant, and everyone is buzzing that she already has that special glow. They couldn’t be more excited about the future!”

ISN’T IT ROMANTIC? The couple announced their shocking split in June 2015, amid reports of Ben’s out-of-control partying and rumors that he had become romantically involved with the family’s sexy young nanny.

A new arrival would be the fourth child for the couple, who are already parents to (below, from left) Violet, 10, Samuel, 4, and Seraphina, 7. “Ben loves his girls, but secretly he is hoping for another boy — a brother for Sam to rough-house with,” an insider tells Star.

Afterward, she laughed and thanked him

He also surprised Jen with a fabulous, $2.3 million diamond ring. It’s all perfect timing, especially now that their pals think she’s expecting again!” There had been signs in recent months that the couple, both 44, had started to rekindle their romance. “Last August,

to the Yellowstone Club, a spectacularly beautiful resort in Big Sky, Montana,” a source tells Star. “The family had a ball kayaking and fishing on the lake — and at one point, Ben’s kayak flipped over and he went flying into the water, while Jen sat in her boat and laughed hysterically.” The following month, the two were spotted on a night out in L.A., acting like a smitten couple on their first date, and Ben finally moved back into a guesthouse at the sprawling family mansion in October.

After their 10-year marriage collapsed amid whispers of Ben’s alleged affair with 29-year-old nanny Christine Ouzounian, the couple managed to keep things amicable for

Then came a detour in June after Ben’s disastrous appearance on the TV sports talk show Any Given Wednesday (see box, below). Looking red-faced and bloated, Ben seemed to be slurring his speech as he launched into a expletiveridden rant, kicking off a storm of speculation that the troubled Batman star, who has reportedly struggled with alcohol and addiction problems, was drunk. “Jen was livid and gave Ben an ultimatum to get sober or she would finally go ahead and file divorce papers,” the insider says. “Deep down she really didn’t want to end the

Ben’s Big Fumble Last June, Ben humiliated himself (and Jen, as well) with his fiasco of a guest spot on the HBO sports talk show Any Given Wednesday. He went on a crazy, curse-filled tirade, leading viewers to suspect that he was drunk — but there was a silver lining: “Ben promised Jen that he’d never embarrass her again and that he’d do whatever it takes to get back together,” a source says. “And he did!”

Ben actually stopped his drinking, agreed to go back to couples counseling and started going to church with Jen and the kids every week, which has really brought them together as a family. Ben changed his ways for the better and has totally regained Jen’s trust.” NEW ARRIVAL? As for the other happy news, says the insider, “Jen had sensed that something was going on because she felt bloated and was having a harder and harder time slipping into her favorite jeans. She is so happy with the prospect of being pregnant again that she can’t stop smiling.” In the meantime, she and Ben are making sure to pencil in plenty of date nights. “They feel it’s important to go out at least once a week,” the insider adds. “It’s a chance for them to talk, catch up and just enjoy each other’s company.” The couple also seem to have settled back into a comfortable routine: They were spotted attending Sunday services in Pacific Palisades on Nov. 13, and Jen was out buying groceries with Violet and Seraphina after school a few days later. “The kids are thrilled to see their parents so happy,” says the insider. “They’re a beautiful family, and it’s wonderful that they’re all back together again!” ★

OPRAH WINFREY

Oprah, 62, has tried it all during three decades of weight-loss ups and downs: a liquid diet, a vegan cleanse, even meditation! Now she’s following Weight Watchers, and she swears by it. “I don’t even feel like it’s a diet,” she’s said, claiming that her boyfriend, Stedman Graham, “can pick me up and carry me.” Yet while Oprah pared down, she also lost money. Weight Watchers stock has plunged since she bought 10 percent of the company last year. 38 Star D E C E M B E R

At 35, Brit is already a true showbiz survivor, having worked her way back to fame — and fitness — after years of erratic behavior, psychiatric treatment and temporarily losing custody of her sons, Sean and Jayden, to her ex Kevin Federline. Upon landing her Las Vegas residency in 2013, Britney began rigorous training — “Daily exercise is important for me both mentally and physically,” she’s said — and adopted a lowcarb diet. Add in endless bikini selfies, and you’ve got Brit’s tricks to staying on track!

HEN it comes to Bella Hadid’s new ad campaign for athletic apparel giant Nike, it seems a lot of people aren’t being good sports. The company has come under fire — and, by extension, so has Bella — for signing up the willowy, 20-year-old model (sister to fellow catwalker Gigi, 21) to promote its clothing and gear. And after Bella posted a recent photo of herself to Instagram, looking superskinny as she posed in the street by a huge Nike ad on the side of a building in NYC, the reaction from a number of females replying on social media (see box, right) seemed to be anything but a touchdown for the campaign. Many blasted Nike for using someone who didn’t appear to be very athletic to promote athletic clothing — while a number also pointed to Bella’s “abnormally thin” frame for “giving young girls unrealistic expectations.” THEY HAVE BELLA’S BACK Bella did have her supporters, though, as a number of female fans posted messages taking her detractors to task for “body shaming” the

young model. And Bella’s mom, former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills diva Yolanda Foster, leapt to her daughter’s defense, pointing out that Bella has the athletic chops because she had been an Olympics-grade equestrian when she was younger, before losing her edge after contracting Lyme disease (from which Yolanda also suffers). “Bella actually loves the attention this flap is garnering her,” says a Star source, who notes that the model is scheduled to appear in a Victoria’s Secret show in Paris that airs as a TV special in December. “She feels good about herself and her body, and that’s the most important thing.” ★

YELLI I L L E SP M

AYBE you could chalk it up to hormones, considering she’s pregnant with her fifth child by hubby Dean McDermott. But Tori Spelling has had her share of drama-queen moments in the past — so her behavior at a recent fan convention gone bad may not be completely shocking. The Midwest meltdown occurred over the Nov. 11 weekend in the Chicago suburbs, with more than 50 TV and music celebrities, mostly from the 1980s and ’90s — including Tori, 43, and Dean, 50 — in attendance at the event, says a source, who tells Star: “Every celebrity was guaranteed a certain amount of money for their participation by the producers, but the fact is that the producers hope that most of the guaranteed money is covered by fans who pay the celebrities directly for autographs and having their photos taken. So a huge fan turnout is essential — but it didn’t happen in this case.” That led to a problem with the stars being paid, claims the source — a huge concern for Tori and Dean, who Star recently reported have been struggling with a $707,000 tax lien and $40,000 in unpaid credit card bills. “I heard Tori had been guaranteed $25,000 and Dean $10,000, so that really set her off,” claims the source. “But she had other blowups!” A TORRENT OF TORI The source claims that Tori started ranting almost from the start of the weekend event,

Though Tori’s husband, Dean McDermott, was also a celebrity participant at the fan convention, “he ended up being more like a babysitter for his wife, given the number of times she kind of went off the rails over the weekend,” an eyewitness tells Star.

argument, and Tori yelled loud enough for everyone to hear, ‘You’re such a bitch!’But Jen nie calmly shot back, ‘Your father’s [producer Aaron Spelling] not running this show today!’ Finally, on Sunday evening, “the producers handed out checks to the celebrities — but told them not to cash them until later in the week,” the source claims. “That’s a sure sign they had money problems — indeed, many of the checks ended up bouncing — and when Tori realized it, she started sobbing uncontrollably, saying, ‘We really needed this! We really needed this!’ Dean tried to calm her down, telling her, ‘We’ll get through it, we’ll work it out.’ But Tori was a mess, and it was sad to see.” ★

In The Center Of The Storm Avery’s guilt — or innocence — continues to inspire heated debate, with supporters insisting he’s been the victim of gross police misconduct.

Steven Avery

GO FREE? THANKS TO A RARE LEGAL RULING, THE SUBJECT OF THE SHOCKING DOCUSERIES MAKING A MURDERER MAY FINALLY BE RELEASED FROM PRISON.

F

OR 11 years, Steven Avery has been languishing behind bars in Wisconsin’s Waupun penitentiary, serving a life sentence with no chance of parole. But for millions of viewers transfixed by Making a Murderer, the controversial Netflix docuseries that suggests Avery was framed for the brutal 2005 killing of photographer Teresa Halbach, he is indeed an innocent man who should walk free. Now, in an unprecedented turn of events, Avery, 54, may be able to do just that. On Nov. 14, U.S. Magistrate Judge William Duffin ordered the release from prison of Avery’s nephew, Brendan Dassey, 27, who had admitted to helping

54 Star D E C E M B E R

5, 2016

his uncle kill Halbach. The judge had earlier overturned his murder conviction, saying that investigators had coerced Dassey, who has an IQ of 73, into making a false confession. His release was blocked, however, by an appeals court after the state’s Department of Justice argued Dassey should remain behind bars while his appeal is resolved. “Steven might be able to leverage the judge’s decision to his own advantage,” Alexandra Kazarian, a prominent L.A. criminal defense attorney, tells Star. “His lawyers could argue that the officers’ conduct with Brendan should make the court reconsider their possible culpability in planting evidence that was used against him.”

PRESUMED GUILTY Before Halbach’s murder, Avery already had a string of convictions for animal cruelty, burglary and possession of a firearm. In 1985, the 22-year-old, who ran a salvage yard owned by his family near Mishicot, Wisc., was arrested after a woman named Penny Beerntsen identified him from a police photo lineup as the man who brutally attacked and sexually assaulted her while she was jogging on a beach along Lake Michigan. Although Avery, a married father of four, was 45 miles away in Green Bay at the time of the attack — an alibi supported by a time-stamped store receipt and 16 eyewitnesses — he was charged and convicted of rape and attempted murder and sentenced to 32 years in prison. Avery served 18 years before he was exonerated through DNA testing. After his release in 2003 — by that time his wife,


Lori Mathiesen, had divorced him, and he had become estranged from his family — Avery filed a $36 million civil suit for wrongful conviction. Two years later, he was charged with Halbach’s murder after her Toyota RAV4 was found partially hidden in his salvage yard and police discovered her charred bone fragments in a burn pit near his home. Avery’s attorneys insisted he had been framed — possibly in an attempt to thwart his lawsuit, which was still pending — and accused police of planting and tampering with evidence during repeated searches of Avery’s home and garage, where they claim Halbach was killed. But his fate seemed to be sealed after Dassey, then 16, confessed, even though he later recanted and refused to testify against Avery at his trial in 2007. CLEARING HIS NAME Avery, who said he was “so happy” when he learned that his nephew’s conviction had been overturned, may have a long fight ahead of him. His attorney, Kathleen Zellner, who has 17 exonerations under her belt, filed a motion in August to obtain key evidence, including bloodstains identified as Avery’s found in Halbach’s car; she insists that advanced forensics tests will verify they were planted. “If she can prove that, there will either be a retrial or a flat-out exoneration,” says Kazarian. “Either way, that would mean justice at last for Steven, and possibly the end of a long nightmare for him.”★

WHO MURDERED

Teresa Halbach

Halbach’s car was found on Avery’s property, and bloodstains recovered from the interior matched his.

Avery’s nephew, Brendan Dassey, initially told police he was an accomplice in Halbach’s murder.

Halbach’s killing was partially based on testimony from his nephew Brendan Dassey, who told police he helped Avery kill Halbach — who is believed to have met with Avery about a car he was selling on the day of her disappearance in October 2005 — and dispose of the body. But Dassey recanted and did not testify at Avery’s trial. Prosecutors also presented physical evidence, the most damning of which was Halbach’s SUV, which was found hidden under debris in Avery’s salvage yard. But his attorney, Kathleen Zellner, claims cellphone tower records will verify that Halbach left Avery’s property alive. She also insists that new forensics tests will prove that bloodstains found in Halbach’s car came from a vial of Avery’s blood held in the county clerk’s office — which would suggest police planted it and would likely, at the very least, force a retrial.

New Study Reveals What A Single Diet Soda Does Hollywood CA-- Being healthy and looking good is a big priority for many of us. That’s often why we reach for a “diet� soda when we’re feeling thirsty. Diet sodas are marketed as healthy, low-calorie options. But the truth about these drinks is SHOCKING. If you consume soda regularly or even have one once in a while, or know anyone who GRHVWKHQWKLVLVDHFWLQJ\RXGLUHFWO\

Research suggests that high-fructose corn syrup, the sweetener used in most soda, is associated with increased body fat. This is because high fructose corn syrup is absorbed more rapidly than regular sugar, which can prevent your body from triggering its signals for being full. And when your body doesn’t know you are full, it may lead to over-eating. If you have experienced these unstoppable food cravings, it could be because of the soda you’re drinking.

Who just lost a friend in Penn? DEAD MAN WALKING!

When did Ryan know Blake was The One? And they said romance was dead. Ryan Reynolds joked that he knew he wanted to marry Blake Lively “probably after the sex” — or rather during their first date at a restaurant in Tribeca. “This song came on, and I was just, like, ‘Want to dance?’ ” Ryan recalled. “No one was in there, so it was totally empty. And it was just one of those moments where... I was, like, ‘Oh, I think I just crossed a line.’ And then I walked her home. And, uh... I don’t really need to go into what happened after that.” Talk about getting the green light, er, lantern! ★ 82 Star D E C E M B E R

Madonna Tips Her Hand New York City, Nov. 12 We’ve got to hand it to Madonna. The Material Girl’s smooth, wrinkle-free face doesn’t look a day over 40, but her mittens... could use some ironing out. The 58-year-old singer turned heads for all the wrong reasons while sitting ringside with Bella Hadid, Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron at UFC fighter Conor McGregor’s Madison Square Garden debut.
