Big news for Oprah’s favorite designer… Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s tax evasion scandal… Justin Bieber may need surgery… Lindsay Lohan made her stage debut… and Amber Rose has filed for divorce from Wiz Khalifa
Oprah’s favorite designer Nate Berkus and his new husband Jeremiah Bretare are about to become first-time fathers. Nate announced the news on his Facebook page. “We have had the most special year and its JUST become even more beautiful. We are happy to announce that we are expecting our first child! While we can’t share much, we can say that thanks to a surrogate and the support of those we love we will officially be a family in the spring of 2015.” Nate and Jeremiah were married back in May. They were the first same-sex couple to marry at New York Public Library.
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has been charged with tax evasion. The IRS says he didn’t pay his full tax bill on $8.9 million in earnings and then filed fraudulent returns with bogus business expenses. His brother Marc is charged in this mess, too. Both pleaded not guilty and were released on $250K bond. If he’s ultimately convicted, Mike could face up to 9 years in prison.
Justin Bieber may need surgery to repair a burst ear drum. He explained on Twitter: “Busted my ear drum cliff diving. Doc says I might need surgery now. Sucks…”
Lindsay Lohan made her stage debut in London’s West End last night. “Speed-the-Plow” is still in previews, so TECHNICALLY this is almost like they’re still in rehearsals. In fact, London’s theater critics don’t get to review the production officially until press night on October 2. But those who were in the audience last night said Lindsay was having trouble remembering her lines. It was so bad that the audience actually started laughing. While some are saying she bombed, others are being more sympathetic, saying Lindsay was charming in the role.
After 14 months of marriage, Amber Rose has filed for divorce from Wiz Khalifa. She’s seeking full custody of their 19-month-old son, Sebastian. Sources say each is accusing the other of cheating. In fact, Wiz thinks Amber’s been sneaking around with her new manager, Nick Cannon, but he strongly denies that.
