Hee hee hee … Perez vs. X17 Is Getting DIRTY

dui_linds_perez.jpg

From X17:

If you’re gonna steal pix, you’re gonna get burned! Mario Lavandeira decided to infringe one of our images, yet again — as he does usually at least a few times each week — but this time we caught him with a decoy …

X17 sent out this week-old pix of Lindsay Lohan to our UK clients and captioned them like this:
First pix of Lindsay Lohan since dramatic crash with her Mercedes SL 65 in Beverly Hills May 27, 2007 carrying medication May 27, 2007 X17online EXCLUSIVE

Mr. Hilton published the information from the caption and the caption’s a FAKE, JUST LIKE HIM! And though he always claims he doesn’t know the origins of the images he uses that are ours — you can see that our captions clearly state that the images are from X17. That’s what you get when you read Perez!

The real, exclusive Lindsay photos from early this morning are coming soon on X17!

In fact, every image of Lindsay that Perez has used so far, to illustrate the story of Lohan’s DUI, is an X17 image. See you in court, Mario!

Here’s the link to the story Perez ran, along with some screen captures for when he pulls it.

It’s funny that Perez seems to have something against X17 specifically. When Creative Age publications called him out on using one of their images for his logo, he removed the logo and changed his favicon. Now this may be, in part, because I think he’ll probably try to make a satire case for his use of X17′s images, and that shit probably won’t fly with his logo (not that it’s likely to fly for the rest of the pics, either). But he uses Buzz Foto’s images with their watermarks, and always credits them. Most of the rest of his pics come from WireImage. Every now and then he’ll steal from Splash or Flynet, but most of his stolen images are X17′s, and despite their lawsuit, he continues to do so. I think this shit is personal.

Mischa Barton’s Shrooming Lands Her in the Hospital

Oh, Memorial Day weekend. I have to be honest, kids, I caught about 30 seconds of local news tonight before The Simpsons, and they were interviewing people with family in Iraq at some event in downtown L.A., and I was like, “Oh, shit, that’s right! This is the holiday about war veterans!” I get it confused with Labor Day. (What’s that one about, anyway? Slaves?) And, admit it, for most of you, Memorial Day weekend is not about remembering our soldiers abroad or at home; it’s about getting so incredibly fucked up you can’t remember where you live, let alone the troops.*

Well, Mischa Barton was doing her part to support our shrooms at a house party on Sunday, where she was tripping so hard she thought she was dying. She made such a scene that an ambulance was called, and she was taken out of the party on a stretcher by paramedics. She was hospitalized immediately, and remains in the hospital tonight.

Her reps are trying to spin it like she had a few alcoholic beverages while she was on antibiotics, but seriously? What the fuck were the antibiotics? Shrooms? Because if mixing alcoholic beverages with antibiotics regularly landed people in the hospital, I’d be so fucking dead right now. It’s birth control you’re not supposed to mix with antibiotics, people (and birth control should, for the record, always be in the mix with alcohol, but I digress).

Mischa has a long and illustrious history with drugs, with many a photo of her smoking weed circulating the Internet. Remember this? Or this? Or when her kid sister checked into rehab in February? Yeah.

You know what’s sad? Part of me is feeling like she’s really responsible, since she didn’t drive. Sigh.






*For the record, here at The Evil Beet, we fully support our troops. Our administration is a different story.

I Told You People I Was Going to Run Every Damn Picture of Jaslene Gonzalez, and I Meant It

ANTM’s Jaslene at Indy 500

Remember this? Yeah. I’m gonna do this until you all hate me. Because, to be honest, I kind of have a girl crush on her. So you can fantasize about that or you can just ignore these posts, or you can do both, I suppose, but you sure as hell can’t stop me. Jaslene was at the Indy 500 on Sunday (which was won by Ashley Judd’s hubby). She was joined by Patrick Dempsey and Ian Ziering (who, if we’re being honest, looks good these days). Enjoy!

Ashley Judd’s Husband Wins the Indy 500!

These are seriously some of the cutest pictures I’ve seen come across the wire in a long time. Ashley Judd’s husband, Dario Franchitti, won a rain-soaked Indianapolis 500 on Sunday, and she was there to celebrate with him. She just looks so genuinely ecstatic in every single one of these pictures. I don’t know the first thing about racecars or NASCARs (I assume this is NASCAR, because it’s definitely not horse-racing, right?) and I still don’t know how to drive a stick shift, but HOORAY DARIO FRANCHITTI!!!

Svedka Vodka Won’t Be Sponsoring Lindsay’s Birthday

Lindsay Lohan DUI

Svedka Vodka, the company which had planned to sponsor Lindsay Lohan’s 21st birthday party, has decided, in the wake of her DUI, that perhaps heralding the legal drinking right of an alcoholic who’s not afraid to get behind the wheel is not the best business decision. Because, you know, sponsoring the 21st birthday of an alcoholic who’d been in rehab but had yet to get a DUI would have been totally responsible. Way to go, Constellation Brands.

Not that it matters anyway. At this rate, Lindsay’s going to be spending her July 2 birthday in rehab.
