THE QUEEN OF SOUTHERN CUISINE FACES YET ANOTHER SCANDAL: THE DEATH OF HER DISGRACED BROTHER-IN-LAW BY HIS OWN HAND.
Paula P l Deen
SUICIDE SHOCKER A
HENRY GROOVER’S 2003 MUG SHOT
COLLARED, AND COLLARED
A Dominican priest, Henry — the brother of Paula’s husband, Michael (left) — had been arrested 13 years ago (above) after exposing himself to a policeman in Louisiana.
S if Paula Deen needed any more drama and heartbreak in her life! The former Alist chef’s Dominican priest brother-in-law, Henry Groover III, committed suicide on Jan. 17 — just six days after being named in court papers accusing him of sexually abusing a young boy. The lawsuit, filed in Georgia on Jan. 11 by Ancil Harvey Gordon III, alleges that Groover “is well known to some... as a pedophile and sexual predator” who, for a number of years beginning in 1983, had “lured and otherwise enticed [Gordon] into illegal sexual acts” by using “LSD, alcohol, MDMA, cocaine and other illicit substances.” Though details of Groover’s suicide were unknown at press time, “Paula and her husband, Michael, are

distraught over the loss of his brother Henry, and this horrifying lawsuit that has come to light,” a source tells Star. While the new lawsuit may have come as a shock, it isn’t the first time Groover was implicated in sordid sexual allegations: In 2003, he was arrested for sexual battery after exposing himself to a New Orleans policeman. It’s just the latest scandal for Paula, 70, who admitted in a 2013 court deposition that she had used racially insensitive remarks — including the N-word — in front of employees. As a result, that June, the Food Network canceled her show. “Paula had called Henry her ‘spiritual advisor’ in one of her books,” the source adds. “Henry’s death and the new accusations about him are excruciating for her to deal with now.” H

ith a closet full of couture and millions of fans, Kendall Jenner’s luxe life has been anything but ordinary. So it’s no wonder the reality star and model is freaking out that her crummy complexion was on display during a makeup-free night in New York City on Jan. 12. “It’s so embarrassing for Kendall to book a job then show up needing so much concealer,” dishes a source close to the catwalker. “She worries that people won’t want to keep hiring her with these ‘oil rigs,’ as she calls them, all over her skin.” Ironically, it may be modeling that’s causing the problem. “Too much makeup can clog your pores and cause bacteria and oil to build up, and then you break out,” explains Dr. Tahl Humes, director of Vitahl Medical Aesthetics in Denver. “Kendall’s probably not washing it all off when she gets home. Everybody forgets, but you need to wash your face morning and night.” She also says that stress and hormones — too much testosterone can lead to acne — are making things worse, ditto with Kendall’s hectic travel schedule. “The most effective treatments are topical at-home products and certain chemical peels and lasers,” Dr. Humes adds. But Kendall’s been there, done that. “She has the best dermatologists on speed dial and her skin’s fine for a while, but it’s always only a temporary reprieve,” explains the pal. “She might come across as this sexy, confident supermodel, but secretly, she’s so upset by her acne that it keeps her up at night.” H

ALEC & IRELAND’S DISMAL DAD-DAUGHTER DATE
MAN VS. BEAST!
CRITTER CRACK-UP Exploding cars, gun-wielding villains and dangerous stunts barely faze Jason Statham… but four paws, a ringed tail and beady eyes? Forget about it! The British action star had a meltdown when he found himself face-to-face with a raccoon that was stealing fish out of his koi pond. “Jason spotted a raccoon trying to scoop out a fish, so he went out to shoo it away,” tattles a friend close to the Transporter actor. “It reared up and scared the hell out of him — he came dashing back into the house screaming!” Jason’s fiancée, model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, had a fit of her own after her beau’s brush with nature. “She called him a big baby and couldn’t stop laughing,” added the source. “Jason’s embarrassed but says he’s not going back out there until the place is raccoon free!” H
Alec Baldwin may bring the laughs on Saturday Night Live, but his recent dinner with daughter Ireland was anything but jolly. “Someone bumped into their table, and he flipped out, demanding that they apologize,” says a patron at celeb hotspot Craig’s in L.A. on Jan. 9. “He also snapped, ‘Can’t you see I’m having dinner with my daughter?’ when someone told him they were a big fan.” Ireland tried to get her dad to calm down, but the hot-tempered actor “seemed like he was up for causing a scene.” While the 21-year-old has been blitzing social media trying to launch her modeling career, it was clear this wasn’t the kind of spotlight she had in mind. “She spent most of the time checking her phone and looking like she couldn’t wait to get away,” reported the witness. “It was hardly a relaxing meal.” Check, please!

New year, new man… new face? In the wake of her (second) rehab stint and risky new romance with hard-partying rapper The Weeknd, Selena Gomez has undergone a serious overhaul in a bid to sex up her image and her personal life. “She majorly plumped her lips and smoothed out her under-eye and smile lines with filler,” dishes a pal. “Plus she got Kybella in her chin to define her jaw.” Star’s plastic surgery expert Dr. Michelle R. Yagoda says Selena may have had some more invasive nip-tucks as well: “It also looks like she may have had a nose job. The bridge is narrower and the tip seems less boxy.” While the 24-year-old claimed her recent time out of the spotlight was about looking inward, it seems it was spent looking in the mirror. “The truth is she was more focused on overhauling her appearance than really solving any big internal issues,” says the friend. “She’s totally caught up in this constant fight for perfection.” H F E B R U A RY 6 , 2 0 1 7

hours drinking and partying and getting dances from the girls.” This isn’t the first time Chyna, who was arrested last year for drunkenly fighting a flight attendant, has put partying over parenthood. “She was out until 5 a.m. with French Montana in Vegas five days before and usually goes out two to three nights a week,” snitches a source. “Chyna is such a hypocrite. It’s a joke that she’s accusing Rob of having issues when she’s the hot mess.” H

Her squad’s collapsed, her love life’s nonexistent, and she’s made a slew of enemies,” whispers a tipster. “She’s been finding comfort in the fridge, and her diet’s gone out the window.” Indeed, the insider reports that Taylor went up 15 pounds and two pants sizes but looks even heavier, thanks to what appear to be bulky new breast implants. “Maybe she thought getting her boobs done would make her feel sexy, but she seems to be regretting it,” the source explains. “She actually doesn’t look bad with tthe extra weight on her, but she’s feeling very self-conscious.” H

UMA’S “TOXIC” CUSTODY BATTLE Ex Arpad Busson claims the actress is seriously mentally ill.
MA Thurman and French financier Arpad Busson fought like cats and dogs during the first day of their contentious custody battle over daughter Luna, 4, in Manhattan Supreme Court. “I don’t think that these people should be in the same room together with Luna,” court-appointed psychologist Sara Weiss testified on Jan. 10, describing their relationship as “toxic” at best. “Reasonable people work these things out,” scolded Justice
Matthew Cooper. However, Uma, 46, and her ex, 53, have no intention of playing nice! On Friday, Arpad’s lawyer, Peter Bronstein, accused the actress of having a “serious” mental illness and mixing meds with alcohol. “Uma was furious,” says a longtime pal, adding that the mother of three was self-medicating to treat depression, insomnia and anxiety. “Uma is the first person to admit that she’s not perfect, but the way she’s being painted is devastating. It’s just not right.”
Another matter at hand: visitation. Arpad is requesting to have Luna for 10 days a month, plus school vacations, but Uma claims the high-rolling billionaire saddled ex Elle Macpherson with their child to catch a soccer match in London in the past and left their daughter with nannies to see a Rolling Stones concert in Cuba. “It’s sad that it’s come to this,” says the source. “Uma and Arpad once loved each other just as much as they hate each other today.” H

Perhaps she didn’t realize the windows were wide open.” The R-rated chitchat left the crew speechless! “Obviously, no one said anything to Nicole, but she’s got dirty talk down to a tee,” admits the source. “It sounded like she knew exactly what buttons to press.” Talk about a smooth operator...

SCIENTO W EX-MEMBER LEAH REMINI AND BOTH FEEL STRONGLY ABOUT AND IT’S RESULTED IN HOLLY
Read All About It! Leah’s 2015 tell-all about her experiences in the church started the storm — and her follow-up A&E TV series, Scientology and the Aftermath, has opened the floodgates of accusation and confrontation.
HEN asked about Scientology in a 2012 Playboy interview, Tom Cruise, the church’s most famous follower, said, “What’s interesting is, if I don’t talk about my religion, if I say I’m not discussing it... they’re like, ‘He’s avoiding it.’ If I do talk about it, it becomes, ‘Oh, he’s proselytizing.’ Reviewing how things can be edited and misinterpreted, I decided [when] I’m promoting a film, I’m not going to get caught up in anything else, and that includes all my personal things.” But at the Oct. 25 London premiere of his film Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Tom launched into a passionate defense of Scientology after a reporter asked him about the controversial church. “Without [Scientology], I wouldn’t be where I am,” he told the interviewer. “It’s a beautiful religion. I’m incredibly proud.” The reason behind Tom’s
OLOGY ULTRA-ADVOCATE TOM CRUISE THE CONTROVERSIAL CHURCH — WOOD’S NASTIEST FEUD EVER! sudden decision to speak so openly about his faith, and with such gushing, over-the-top praise, may not be a mystery: Sources claim the Hollywood superstar may have been launching a preemptive strike before the upcoming November premiere of Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, the actress and ex-Scientologist’s explosive new TV docuseries that, true to the church’s fears, has shed a harsh light on their secretive practices and alleged mental and physical abuses (reps for the church have denied all the claims made on the show). Now, a source believes, the stage has been set for an “epic showdown” between Tom and Leah. ALL THE RAGE “Tom is much too savvy to discredit Leah openly,” a source tells Star. “But I would imagine he’s fully aware that Scientology’s leaders may want to strike back

and counter all the negative publicity the show has generated. Tom is the church’s fiercest defender, and in my mind, I’m sure he must be insane with anger over Leah’s claims against it.” Even before the show first aired, the church reportedly tried to derail the eight-part series by smearing Leah’s reputation in a letter to the A&E network that slammed the King of Queens star, 46, as “a has-been actress now a decade removed from the peak of her career.” And this January, in a rare TV interview on 20/20, Scientology lawyer Monique E. Yingling took another swipe at Leah, saying that she “seems to be making a career out of attacking Scientology, and frankly the church would just like her to get on with her life and find something else to do.” Yingling also claimed that the series, in which defectors told horror stories of blackmail, psychological and even physical abuse by high-ranking church staff, had led to death threats against Scientology’s leader, David Miscavige. Cruise, 54, and Miscavige, 56, have been close friends for years (David was best man at his 2006 wedding to Katie Holmes), “and it seems to me there’s no question that the church has kept Tom in 34 Star F E B R U A RY

As Star has revealed, Tom, who’s sold both of his L.A. properties, reportedly will be moving to a luxury penthouse in Clearwater, Fla., Scientology’s main headquarters, in what could be his first steps toward eventually becoming the religion’s new leader. “I believe that it makes perfect sense for the church to turn to Tom in this fight,” the insider adds. “Both Leah and the show, which has gotten blockbuster ratings, have been grabbing huge headlines, and if there’s anyone who can go head to head with another big celebrity, it’s Tom.” GIVING AS GOOD AS SHE GETS For her part, Leah, who was raised a Scientologist before leaving the church in 2013, hasn’t been afraid to return fire. “[Tom] honestly believes that people like me are literally the devil,” she said while promoting the show in December. Accusing Tom of turning a blind eye to Scientology’s alleged misdeeds, she added: “He is very aware that it’s an organization that is defrauding people
A BLOCKBUSTER BOMBSHELL AHEAD?
Church leader David Miscavige and his “missing” wife, Shelly.
Tom attended the 2004 inauguration of a new Scientology Centre in Spain.
Leah welcomed David Miscavige’s father, Ron, on her show. In 2007 — three years after Tom spoke to the crowd during the dedication of a new Scientology church in Madrid, Spain — Shelly Miscavige, the 56-year-old wife of his close friend, church leader David Miscavige would mysteriously vanish from the public eye, and reportedly hasn’t been seen to this day. That’s a subject Tom hasn’t spoken about at all, but Leah certainly has. In fact, David’s own father, ex-church member Ron Miscavige, was a guest on Leah’s show. “The church is probably freaking out, worried that Leah is saving a shocking revelation about Shelly’s disappearance for the next season of her series,” says a source.
out of their lives.” The insider adds, “If I were in Leah’s shoes, I would certainly be telling myself that Tom is a total phony!” There may be even more trouble brewing. Talks of a second season for the show are under way, “and if that’s green-lighted, you’d have to assume Leah has dug up even more bombshells and revelations,” the source says. “That might include the mysterious disappearance of David’s wife, Shelly, who vanished nine years ago and hasn’t been seen in public since. I’d have to believe that the church might be running scared about that.” If tensions indeed escalate, “you’d have to wonder if Tom can keep his distance and stay quiet,” the source adds. But with the memory of Cruise angrily taking Matt Lauer to task on TV in 2005, after Matt defended Brooke Shields for taking antidepressants for her postpartum depression (something the church does not believe in), “if Tom decides to speak out, he’s going to have to be very careful not to fly off the handle again.” SUPPORT SYSTEM In the meantime, Leah is already girding up for battle. “As a former member, Leah says she knows what they’re capable of,” says the insider, who claims: “I’m sure she can handle any intimidation or dirty tricks the church might throw at her.” In fact, Tom’s own divorce from Katie Holmes provided fodder for speculation about the church’s tactics, when hulking mystery men in SUVs appeared to tail her and her daughter, Suri, in NYC, after she split from Tom in 2012. “I’d be shocked if Katie hasn’t secretly called Leah numerous times to tell her to stand strong and offer her support,” claims the source. Adds the insider: “You have to commend Leah for bravely stepping forward and speaking her mind. She’s a woman on a mission, but it’s a real David and Goliath battle, and there’s no disputing Tom’s immense power when it comes to defending Scientology. I’m sure Leah will be watching her back.” H

Guests partied all over the palace before everyone was summoned outside for a spectacular fireworks display. Ooh! Ahh! Oops! The couple went kaput five years later.
George & Amal Clooney For their $4.6 million, 2014 nuptials in Venice, Italy, the superstar and his attorney sweetie decamped to not one but two of the city’s top hotels. George spent his last hotels night as a free man at the Belmond Hotel Cipriani, while the ceremony went down at the Aman Canal Grande — and the happy couple honeymooned at its swoonworthy Alcova Tiepolo suite, which goes for about $4,000 a night.

The Prez owned the Palm Beach, Fla., Mar-a-Lago Club, site of his 2005 wedding — one reason the affair cost a measly $1 million. But there was no skimping on the bride’s 60-pound, $200,000 Dior gown boasting 1,500 embroidered rhinestones and pearls and a 13-foot train! After the vows, she changed into a Vera Wang number to party with P. Diddy, Katie Couric and (of all people!) Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Liza had Elizabeth Taylor as her maid of honor, while Michael Jackson served as best man. So nobody was surprised when this sideshow blew up after only 16 months.

M Thomas Markle II JAN. 12 MUG SHOT
Meghan’s half brother, Thomas, spent 11 hours behind bars after his arrest for allegedly holding a gun to his girlfriend’s head during an argument at their home in Grants Pass, Ore. Police said Thomas was in “a drunken state” during the dustup.
EETING the family is a huge step in any relationship. So when Prince Harry, 32, introduced his girlfriend, American actress Meghan Markle, 35, to sister-in-law Kate Middleton on Jan. 10, it was a clear sign the lovers are getting more than serious. The couple, who had just returned from a trip to see the Northern Lights in Norway, visited the duchess at Kensington Palace, and “it couldn’t have gone better,” a royal insider says. Kate’s husband, Prince William, was reportedly there as well, as was their young daughter, Charlotte. “Meg and Harry couldn’t have been happier about how well everyone got along,” the insider adds. “They were really looking forward to taking things to the next level.” Those hopes may turn out to be premature. Just two days after the joyous gettogether, Meghan’s half brother, Thomas Markle II, was arrested in Oregon for allegedly holding a gun to his girlfriend’s head in a drunken altercation — an incident that has cast a shadow over Meghan and Harry’s blossoming romance. “Talk about bad timing!” says a source.
ing with his girlfriend, Darlene Blount, 36, when he “grabbed a gun and pressed it to [her] head in an attempt to get her to leave.” Blount locked herself in the bathroom and called 911, and after the cops arrived at 11 p.m., Thomas was taken into custody and charged with unlawful use of a dangerous weapon, menacing and pointing a firearm at another person. While in jail, Thomas reportedly reached out to his ex-wife, Tracy Dooley, at 3 a.m., and she reportedly paid his $1,500 bail the next day. Herself a recovering alcoholic, Tracy, 51, has publicly claimed Thomas had “issues with alcohol” during their 11-year marriage, which ended in 2001. Thomas showed remorse (sort of ) when reached a few days after his incarceration. “What’s been reported up to now has been a load of rubbish,” he said, while claiming, “[The gun] was unloaded. There were no bullets in it. Darlene and I both had quite a lot to drink — vodka, rum, beer — just the two of us having a good time... I’ve been really dumb and really stupid. Everyone makes mistakes. This time I made a bad one, but we all do. Harry has made a few in his time and learned from them. I just need the same chance.”
IT’S “TOM” HE GETS HIS ACT TOGETHER
ROYAL MESS “He knows his arrest is an embarrassment to Meghan and the family,” added Thomas’ son, Tyler, 27. “He just needs some time to heal and reflect on his life.” Ex-wife Tracy adds: “Tom and Meg used be very close, but there has been some separation over the years. The last thing he would want is to hurt her.” Unfortunately for Meghan, that may yet turn out to be the case. “It’s anybody’s guess what might i h hhappen next,” says the source. “The fact that Meghan is a divorced American actress initially raised serious concerns about her being accepted by his family — and about the possibility of her becoming a duchess. Sadly, the situation with her brother might only complicate things further; the royals will only tolerate so much scandal, and this may well make them think twice about wholeheartedly giving their blessing for Harry and Meghan to walk down the aisle.” H
Meghan was close to her half brother, Thomas (shown playing with his baby sister in 1982, far left), while they were growing up in Los Angeles. His ex-wife, Tracy Dooley, has claimed that Thomas “had a tendency to drink too much” — which may help explain his choice of costume (left) during a family party in the mid-1990s. ““They’ve Th ’ been b dating d i for f eight i h months; h she finally gets to meet William and Kate; and now this happens right afterward. There had been rumors that an engagement was going to be announced soon, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this scandal causes those plans to be put on hold.” SPIRALING OUT OF CONTROL According to a local police report, Thomas, 50, a window fitter in Grants Pass, Ore., had been drinking and argu-

THE DA Split Personality Alan’s death, on Dec. 13, from a ruptured aorta “was heartbreaking to hear, despite our past history,” says Julie Rickett. “He could be incredibly charming, witty and chivalrous — but that could change in the blink of an eye if he wasn’t getting his way.”
Alan T EXCLUSIVE
New Year’s Eve 1990
JULIE RICKETT TODAY
MOTOR OTOR CITY MELTDOWN Family friend Julie Rickett (in a limo with Alan and his future pop star son, Robin, above; dancing with Robin, left) says she spent much of the 1990 New Year’s weekend fending off Alan’s amorous advances — much to his growing displeasure — during a stay in Detroit. “He even became upset over my closeness to Robin,” Julie recalls.
ARK SIDEE OF
EAUTIFUL brunette Julie Rickett had stars in her eyes during Christmas Eve dinner in 1990. A resident of a small town in Ontario, she and her parents had been invited over to dine by their neighbor, Joan Thicke, the mom of Growing Pains icon Alan Thicke — and he had come home from Hollywood for the holidays. “I was having a wonderful time, and Alan was a warm and attentive host,” recalls Julie, who had never met the actor before. “It didn’t take long to realize that he was flirting with me! I was 23 at the time and he was 43, and I wasn’t expecting that kind of attention from him.” As she and Alan (who was divorced from his first wife, actress Gloria Loring) talked during the evening, “He told me about his plans for the future. He was very open about intimate areas of his life, including his desire to have a wife again,” Julie tells Star. “Later that night as I was getting ready to leave, Alan began to try to lure me to his room. I very sweetly told him I was not the kind of girl who stayed with a man the same day I met him, but that I did hope to see him again.” Julie got her wish soon after — though she soon wished that she hadn’t, as she was exposed to a side of Alan that his fans never knew existed. CLOSE QUARTERS A week later, Alan invited Julie and her parents to spend the New Year’s weekend with him, his mom and his 13-year-old son, Robin, at the Omni Hotel in Detroit. As soon as they arrived, says Julie, Alan’s arrangement of the rooms got her attention. “He had booked our parents’ rooms about 10 floors

below us — and Alan, Robin and I were re sharing one suite! Alan’s bedroom was on one side of mine; the living room, where Robin was sleeping, was on the other.” Julie says she had a “great time” watching Alan play in a charity celebrity hockey game that first day in Detroit. But that evening, when they were supposed to go to a black-tie dinner at the Whitney, one of the city’s finest restaurants, “Alan told me he was tired and wanted to skip the dinner to ‘relax’ in our suite. I was disappointed, but he was my host, and I said that was OK. When we got to the room, he suddenly seemed excited and assured me out of the blue, ‘I’m not going to sleep with you and disappear!’ He told me he had it worked out so that he could fly me in to wherever he was working at the time so I could stay with him.” Julie told Alan she “needed more time to get to know him before I could make those kind of plans. He started getting angry and lectured me, ‘Julie, sometimes you can’t take the time you want; sometimes you just have to jump and see what

happens!!’ Then he shifted gears and happens!’ cooed, ‘Just come lay in bed, nothing will happen!’ I was tired of fending him off all day, like a teenager at a prom, so I told him it would be best if I went to my room. He left me in the hall — slamming doors as he went. It was total Jekyll and Hyde behavior; Alan clearly wasn’t used to being told no by a woman!” STORM FRONT After Alan stomped off, says Julie, she said goodnight to Robin — whom she calls “charming, funny and the most mature 13-year-old I’ve ever met” — and locked herself in her room. But her host’s bizarre outbursts were just beginning. “The next morning, while I was talking to Robin, Alan came out of his room, pulled me aside and barked, ‘So I see you spent the night with my son instead of me!’ ” Julie claims. “I was very upset that he would say that, and I assured him I was alone all night!” Alan’s “charming behavior” was clearly gone for good, as became obvious when they went downstairs to meet the families for coffee. “Robin wanted some breakfast, but Alan yelled at him that he couldn’t get anything,” says Julie. “Then the poor waitress asked us to move to another table because we had sat down in a closed section. Alan, red-faced, stood up and yelled, ‘I can’t believe this!’ — then flipped the whole table over! Everyone was horrified!” Later, just as Alan and Robin were boarding a bus they were taking to California — “He wasn’t even talking to me by then,” Julie recalls — Alan shouted, “You never know where you might end up, Julie!” She tells Star, “That’s the last time he ever spoke to me. I never saw him or heard from him again.” H

Founder and Director Dr. Steven Gundry is a world-renowned heart surgeon, a best-selling author, and the personal physician to many celebrities. But his latest medical breakthrough could be the most important accomplishment of his career. In a dramatic press conference yesterday, Dr. Gundry unveiled a simple — yet highly effective — solution to symptoms that plague millions of Americans over 30: low energy, low metabolism and constant fatigue. He went on to say that persistent fatigue can be a warning sign for much more serious health problems…including diabetes, obesity, hypertension and heart disease. “When you’re feeling low energy, that’s your body screaming HELP!” He told the crowd of reporters and medical professionals. Dr. Gundry’s radical solution was inspired by a breakthrough with a “hopeless” patient who had been massively overweight, chronically fatigued and suffering from severely clogged arteries.

Watch the presentation here at www.GetEnergy3.com Within just a few hours, this video had gotten thousands of hits, and is now considered to have gone viral. One viewer commented: “If this works, it’s exactly what I’ve been praying for my whole life. I’ve never seen anything like this solution before…the truth about my diet was shocking and eye-opening.”

this year WE WILL HELP write 1.5 million success stories
In the U.S., 11 million K-12 students live in poverty, so it can be hard for them to succeed in school and therefore hard for them to achieve a lifetime of success. But by placing site coordinators inside public schools – to assess their needs and mobilize community resources around their needs – Communities In Schools helps at-risk kids succeed. We show students that completing every grade and completing high school is well within reach. We are the only organization proven to increase graduation rates… now it’s 93%. Every year we help 1.5 million kids to a bright future. When they succeed, we all do. Help us help even more. Visit CommunitiesInSchools.org

Is Olivia keeping Aaron from his family??
Aaron Rodgers hasn’t spoken to his family since 2014, shortly after he began dating Olivia Munn. “It’s complicated,” said the Green Bay Packers player’s dad, Ed, alluding to a family feud rife with sibling rivalry and perceived slights. “Fame can change g things.” g
And the feeling is mutual. “Olivia is convinced his brother Jordan aired their dirty laundry on The Bachelorette just to get ahead,” reveals an insider. “He made them look like stuck-up celebrities and then wonders why they don’t want anything y g to do with them.”
While Aaron’s father is “hoping for the best,” the NFL star isn’t holding out for a reconciliation anytime soon. “Aaron hasn’t even met Jordan’s fiancée [JoJo Fletcher] and neither has Olivia,” says the source. “They can’t be sure those two won’t use it as a photo op.” H
Are Kourtney and Justin back at it?? WHAT’S YOUR DAMAGE?
Was Christian robbed? Chaos is what killed the dinosaurs, darling. Which might explain why Heathers alum Christian Slater sold his barely furnished Hell’s Kitchen condominium for a lowly $1.1 million. “It was an investment for him,” says listing agent Charlie Panoff, noting that when the Golden Globe winner’s wife, Brittany Lopez, and children came to visit, the “newly renovated” apartment became a bit cramped. You don’t say! H 82 Star F E B R U A RY
Kourtney Kardashian might’ve put on a suggestive pair of PJs to party with friend-with-benefits Justin Bieber at The Peppermint Club on Jan. 14, but sources say the 37-year-old mother of three went home alone. “Been there, done that! Kourtney just went out with Justin to make Scott Disick jealous,” explains an insider. “When he acts up, she likes to give him a taste of his own medicine. Kourtney’s got a rotating roster of toyboys to keep herself occupied.” Or as Justin puts it: “I’m being used, man!” Better belieb it. H
Does Margot have a triple axel to grind? We hardy recognized you, Margot Robbie! The Australian stunner dusted off a pair of high-waisted ’90s jeans, a frizzy blonde wig and some padding to transform into disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding for an WHY upcoming biopic that chronicles ME? the events leading up to the attack on rival Nancy Kerrigan. Weeks prior to the National Championships, Tonya’s exhusband, Jeff Gillooly, and her bodyguard hired a hitman to break Nancy’s leg so she couldn’t compete in the ’94 Winter Olympics. Luckily, the skater only suffered bruises and recovered in time to take home the silver. Tonya, however, didn’t even medal before she pleaded guilty to hindering prosecution and received three years probation and a lifetime ban from the U.S. Figure Skating Association.
