Jessica Simpson and John Mayer SPLIT


If you can believe it, another one of John Mayer’s relationships didn’t work out. The singer — known for his cocky attitude and womanizing — added Jessica Simpson to the laundry list of Hollywood women whose Wonderlands he was ready to leave. Rumor has it John dumped Jess this weekend. The couple, who were first linked at the beginning of this year, represented Simpson’s first real relationship since her very public divorce from Nick Lachey. Lachey, meanwhile, is still running around the world with girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo and her seemingly limitless collection of bikinis.

Jessica, who just a few years ago made headlines for her demure clothing and decision to remain a virgin until marriage, has been notorious lately for wearing extremely revealing outfits. Neither star’s rep is willing to comment on the split, but Jessica is in Cannes this weekend, while John was spotted at NYC hotspot Stereo in search of a new little cake marked “Eat me.”

Lauren Hastings Reminds Us All What a Huge Bitch Lindsay Lohan Is

The kids over at Buzznet sat down to depose model Lauren Hastings about the whole Lindsay-Lohan-stole-my-clothes debaucle. A court today dismissed Lauren’s felony complaint against La Lohan (the two girls met in rehab), but this video is still worth watching, if only to remind us that young Hollywood is still very much the sequel to Mean Girls. You have to listen until the part where Lauren reads the scathing emails she received from Lohan pals such as Samantha Ronson and Nicole Richie (who has a long-standing record of kicking Hastings out of parties after the young model was linked to DJ AM). This is some seriously seventh-grade drama.
