Brangelina has hired the fiercest attorneys to silence their former bodyguard Mickey Brett, who’s plotting a tell-all on his years defending Jolie and Pitt. It’s good to be Madonna’s sometime flame. Model Jesus Luz, who’s helping Madge recover from her equestrian injury, will be featured in Dolce & Gabbana’s fall-winter menswear campaign and has Marc Jacobs writing letters in support of his U.S. work permit. Kobe Bryant and Spike Lee were all smiles at Saturday’s premiere of Lee’s film on the NBA superstar. But it wasn’t always that way; Lee had to work for months to get Bryant’s approval to make the film, even driving to his house to beg for a meeting, where Bryant refused to see him. It’s looking likely that Val Kilmer, who made rounds at a Washington charity event with Bill Clinton’s former political adviser, John Prendergast, will indeed run for governor of New Mexico in 2011.

Rachel McAdams and Josh Lucas visited Golden Bridge Yoga NYC in Nolita.
Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt got married. Again. Yawn.

Katy Perry still likes kissing boys. She’s back together with Gym Class Heroes rocker Travis McCoy. Robert Pattinson says he’s into acting for the ladies. Kim Kardashian’s heavily tweeted makeover kind of makes her look like J.Lo.
Jessica Alba got pulled over by the cops. Henry Ian Cusick (i.e. Desmond from Lost) is being sued for sexual harassment. Joel Madden was forced to cover his tattoos before boarding a British Airways flight, as documented by his tweet. Tao and Marquee owners Noah Tepperberg and Jason Strauss will be opening their new lounge, Avenue, on Tenth Avenue in Chelsea. The duo says it will be “very selective,” with no sign on the door. We haven’t heard that one before.
