Sean Parker spends a fortune on his wedding, Matt Damon gets married again, Ozzy Osbourne addresses divorce rumors and Joey McIntyre on the Boston Marathon.
If you saw “Social Network” you know that Sean Parker was a bit of an eccentric character. But maybe Justin Timberlake didn’t do that eccentricity enough justice. Sean is marrying this singer named Alexandra Lenas on June 1, and sources say Sean is sparing no expense. He’s reportedly rented out the Ventana Inn & Spa in Big Sur, California, for the big day. He’s also hired a landscaping company to build fake ruins, waterfalls, bridges, ponds and a gated cottage in the forest surrounding the resort. Sean also hired the designer for “Lord of the Rings” to create the wedding party’s outfits. The price tag for all this? A reported $9 million.
So RadarOnline.com is reporting that Jason Segal has joined Alcoholics Anonymous. Sources say after his breakup with Michelle Williams, Jason’s drinking became out of control. He found an AA group meeting in Hollywood, which he attended on March 2. At that meeting, Jason reportedly told the group he’s been sober for 12 days. Just goes to show how much a celebrity can trust his fellow AA group members.
They met 10 years ago. Matt Damon was shooting his movie “Stuck on You” in Miami. He walked into a bar, saw a cute bartender named Luciana Barrosa, and they were married two years later. Matt says the moral of this story is, When you’re tired, suck it up and go to the bar because you might meet your wife. When Matt and Luciana got married, they sneaked off to city hall. But all these years later, Matt wanted to give Luciana the wedding she never had. So on Saturday, in front of 50 guests, the couple renewed their wedding vows at sunset on the island of St. Lucia. Matt rented out the entire Sugar Beach resort for the occasion. Jimmy Kimmel officiated. Among the celebrity guests were Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, Ben’s brother, Casey Affleck, Don Cheadle, Stanley Tucci, Chris Hemsworth and Chelsea Clinton.
Ozzy Osbourne wanted to clear up the rumors that his marriage to Sharon was over. So he went on his Facebook page yesterday and made this statement: “For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. I was in a very dark place and was an a**hole to the people I love most, my family. However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober. Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing. I2m just trying to be a better person. I would like to apologize to Sharon, my family, my friends and my band mates for my insane behavior during this period and my fans. God Bless, Ozzy.” No comment from Sharon, who ran off for a little “me” time in Cabo San Lucas.
Celebrities took to Twitter to respond to the bombings in Boston yesterday. New Kids on the Block member Joey McIntyre had just finished running the marathon when the explosion happened. Fellow bandmember Donnie Wahlberg was freaking out, tweeting, “Please reach out if you hear that @joeymcintyre is ok!!!!! Please say a pray for everyone in Boston. Joey tweeted shortly after. “There was an explosion by the finish line about 5 minutes after I finished- I’m ok but I’m sure there are many hurt.” A few hours later, he tweeted, “I don’t know what to say. I feel for everybody involved with the Boston Marathon. My family is ok. I am ok. Gonna take a while to process.”
