LINDSAY TRANSFERS TO NEW REHAB
Lindsay Lohan got her wish and has transferred rehab facilities. According to TMZ, L.A. prosecutors approved Lindsay’s move from Betty Ford to Cliffside rehab in Malibu because they agreed Betty Ford was designed for a 30-day program, and she’d be better off finishing her 90-day stint somewhere else. Word is, she checked out of Betty Ford Wednesday and is already at Cliffside. But Radaronline claims Lindsay’s transfer wasn’t as simple as it’s being made out to be. The site claims Lindsay was so disruptive at Betty Ford that it led to her eventual departure. She reportedly skipped group therapy for several days, and “was making life hell for those around her every day.” Claims a source, “Betty Ford is thrilled to see her go.” In fact, Radar reports that before a deal was made to transfer Lindsay to Malibu, Betty Ford was getting ready to kick her out.
RUPERT MURDOCH DIVORCING THIRD WIFE
News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch filed for divorce from his wife Wendi yesterday. According to a company spokesperson, the pair’s relationship had been broken for more than six months before the filing. Wendi Deng, 44, who was born in China and educated in the U.S., met Murdoch, 82, in 1997 when she was working for a News Corp subsidiary in Hong Kong. They married two years later on a yacht in the New York Harbor, less than three weeks after his divorce from his second wife Anna was final. Deng is best known for coming to Murdoch’s defense in 2011, when she tried to smack a man who went after him with a foam pie during a British hearing into phone hacking. The couple has two children, Grace, 12, and Chloe, 10.
KRIS JENNER EXPECTS KIM’S NEXT WEDDING WILL BE SMALL
Kris Jenner isn’t expecting to plan another big wedding for her daughter Kim Kardashian. She tells the Hollywood Reporter that should Kim ever marry baby daddy Kanye West, it will likely be a much smaller affair than Kim’s wedding to Kris Humphries. “This time it will be private and smaller, if she does get married again – not 500 people,” said Kris. The infamous momager is getting ready to kick off her new syndicated talk show Kris July 15th, and the 57-year-old hopes she’ll be able to serve as an example to women her age. “So many women give up in life when they get a little bit older,” Kris said. “I want to be a positive influence. I want to come from a really good place. Some people are just lost, and maybe I can be an inspiration.”
BRUCE HAS HAD ENOUGH
In Touch Weekly won’t stop reporting that Kris Jenner and hubby Bruce Jenner are headed for divorce. During the season eight premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Bruce bought a Malibu beach home so he could have some alone time and the magazine insists he has moved into the place permanently. “It’s gotten to a point where he’s accepted this marriage is not working for him,” a source claims. “He says they never have sex and she’s nasty to him — and he’s had enough.” Apparently, Kris is so preoccupied with her talk show that she doesn’t have time for her husband. “She’s obsessed with making it the biggest thing since Oprah,” an insider says. The mag even claims Kris may pull the plug on the marriage first, to help gain publicity for the program. “I wouldn’t put it past her to beat Bruce to the punch and separate from him before the show and try to play up her personal drama on-air just to get viewers,” says the insider.
IRON MAN FAN CRIES AFTER MEETING DOWNEY, JR.
One young Iron Man fan got the let down of his life, when his mom promised he’d meet the superhero, but instead got the film’s star Robert Downey, Jr. The mother of 18-month old Jaxson Denno had heard the actor was filming his new movie near their Massachusetts home, so she decided to take her son to meet him, telling Jaxon specifically that he was going to see Iron Man. But when the young boy actually came face-to-face with his hero, it was only a clean-shaven Tony Stark, not the man in the suit. Heather Denno told People her son finally realized it was the same person when Downey spoke, but the picture she snapped documented Jaxson’s initial disappointment.
