Bruce Springsteen

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, 59, and his wife of nearly 18 years, PATTI SCIALFA, 55, sang a tender duet of his classic hit "Tougher than the Rest" to a Denver audience April 10. Interesting choice: News had just broken that Red Bank, N.J., resident ARTHUR KELLY, 45, claimed his wife, ANN, 44, had "committed adultery with one Bruce Springsteen ... at various times and places too numerous to mention" in divorce papers filed March 27. Springsteen fired back, standing by a statement he made in 2006 when he was accused of having an affair with a 9/11 widow: "Our commitment ... remains as strong as the day we were married." Noel Tonneman, Ann's lawyer, says the allegations are completely false: "They attend the same gym, that's it."


Samantha Ronson

Lindsay Lohan had a hard time keeping a low profile in the wake of her recent split from girlfriend Samantha Ronson, who was busy deejaying April 11 at the Borgata in Atlantic City. The starlet partied with pals at her L.A.-area home past 5 a.m. starting April 9 for the next three nights. She also dyed her hair and got a tattoo quoting her idol Marilyn Monroe: "Everyone's a star and deserves the right to twinkle." Still, a pal insists, "Lindsay is being painted as this victim, but she's not." Ronson tells PEOPLE, "I don't talk about my personal life, but I will say that any rumors that I hate Lindsay are false. She's an amazing girl, and I wish her all the best. It's not that dramatic."


Is Chris Brown Dating Another Woman?

Chris Brown was spotted with Girlicious singer Natalie Mejia on April 11 at West Hollywood's Tattoo Mania, but they are not dating, his rep tells Scoop (they were there with a mutual friend). Brown is, however, still seeing Rihanna; a source confirms they spent time together in L.A. the same weekend.


On April 13 a Los Angeles jury found legendary music producer Phil Spector, 69, guilty of second-degree murder in the February 2003 shooting death of actress Lana Clarkson at his Alhambra, Calif., mansion. Jurors failed to reach a verdict in 2007 during Spector's first trial; he could now face 18 years to life in prison.

A rundown of Hollywood's hottest legal battles

On April 3 a judge sided with Rob Lowe, 45, allowing him to proceed with a lawsuit against a former nanny for allegedly violating a confidentiality agreement.

Liza Marquez, David Caruso's ex (and mom of two of his kids), sued the actor for more than $1.2 million, claiming emotional distress. His lawyer said Caruso, 53, found the suit "unfortunate."

A judge ruled April 10 that Redmond O'Neal, 24, violated his probation after testing positive for meth. He faces up to three years in prison.




High School Musical star Ashley Tisdale, 23, and her boyfriend of two years, dancer Jared Murillo, 20, have called it quits. "It's no surprise they broke up," says a source. "[They] used to argue all the time about petty things."



"We're rebuilding," Carey Hart, 33, says of his relationship with Pink, 29. Married in 2006, they separated in 2008 but are hanging out. "You take a couple of steps backward to move forward."



They broke off their engagement in April, but Mary-Louise Parker, 44, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, 43, went skiing in Beaver Creek, Colo., April 4 and "were cozy," says an onlooker.

Millionaire Matchmaker to Jen: 'I CAN HELP!'

Patti Stanger told she could help Jennifer Aniston meet Mr. Right. People asked how:
• "Jen's got to get off the market—get out of [Hollywood] and go to Europe, Texas or Montana."
• "She should go for a rugged entrepreneur, someone who doesn't need her money or her fame."
• "She needs someone sexual. Maybe he's Greek. John Stamos would be good."



Hollywood's good eggs got creative to benefit Feeding America, a hunger-relief charity, at the Diet Pepsi House in L.A. April 7-10. Tori Spelling, Isla Fisher and Marcia Cross (she made two because of her twins) decorated eggs to be auctioned off to raise money for the group.


• 4/11, L.A.: Gwyneth Paltrow and husband Chris Martin threw son Moses an A-list 3rd-birthday party. Paltrow's ex Ben Affleck and daughter Violet stopped by the backyard bash, decorated with farm animal balloons. Liv Tyler brought son Milo and Steven Spielberg (he's Gwyneth's godfather!) came by for cake.
• 4/9, Vancouver: Kristen Stewart celebrated her 19th b-day with cake and a rendition of "Happy Birthday" from the cast, while on a break filming New Moon. "She seemed genuinely surprised," says a source. Later that night she bar-hopped (perfect—the drinking age in British Columbia is 19!) with costars Robert Pattinson and Nikki Reed.
• 4/11, Las Vegas: Keshia Knight Pulliam, a.k.a Rudy Huxtable from The Cosby Show, turned 30 at Privé nightclub. Keshia danced around with a sparkler from her cake until 3 a.m. while pals snapped pics.

5 Questions for ... TRACY POLLAN

The actress talks about psychics, family life with husband Michael J. Fox and her heartbreaking role as missing teenager Natalee Holloway's distraught mom

1 How was it playing a woman who lost a child in real life?
It's probably the hardest job I've ever done. I usually can bounce back after a day's work, but I found myself in a dark place.

2 Are you a strict mom?
On a scale of 1 to 10, I'm a 7. I'm consistent. If there's a rule, there's a rule.

3 Can your four kids try to negotiate?
Well, I did have a no-caged-animals rule. Then my daughter [Esme, 7] had a hamster campaign. She wrote a speech and invited the family to vote. Needless to say, we now have Pippi. That's why I'm a 7.

4 Next, you appear on Medium. Do you believe in psychics?
I can be psychic ... stupid things like I know who is going to be on the phone, and I run into people I thought about that very day.

5 What do you watch on TV?
My girls and I are obsessed with House. Michael and I watch American Idol. The guy with the eyeliner [Adam Lambert] is amazingly talented.
