We know Big Al bought new underwear to meet Blake Shelton, but would you ever consider buying a celebrity’s used underwear? Believe it or not, a pair of Michael Jordan’s used boxers were on the auction block over the weekend. They were provided by Michael’s friend and bodyguard John Michael Wozniak — whom you may remember from the “Last Dance” documentary. He also had some of Michael’s suits, coats, dress shirts and ties up for auction, all of which, he claims, Michael gave him. Including his underwear????? According to the listing, the boxers showed evidence of “definite use,” however they had been cleaned and the dry-cleaning tag was included. Nineteen people bid on them with the winning bid being $2784.

Season 30 of “Dancing With the Stars” has barely gotten off the ground and COVID-19 is already screwing things up. Pro dancer Cheryl Burke revealed on Instagram last night that she’s tested positive for COVID. She said, “…I’ve been feeling progressively worse, but yeah, the PCR test came back and it came back positive and I just feel so bad. I feel so bad for Cody. I feel like I’m letting him down. I just feel like sh*t to be quite honest and it’s so overwhelming because it’s Sunday and the show’s tomorrow.” So if Cheryl has to quarantine for 10 days, doesn’t that mean her dance partner, Peleton instructor Cody Rigsby, has to be quarantined, as well? And who else may have been exposed? So far, no comment from ABC. Perhaps we’ll all find out tonight.

Surprise! Page Six is reporting that Lena Dunham and Luis Felber got married over the weekend. Luis is an English-Peruvian musician who’s known professionally as Attawalpa. Back in June, Lena revealed she and Luis had been dating for a few months when she wished him happy birthday online. She ended the post with lyrics from The Zombies’ “This Will Be Our Year.” On Sunday, Luis hinted that the wedding had happened when he posted that song on his Instagram Story with heart and alien emojis.

“The New York Times Presents: Controlling Britney Spears” premiered on FX and Hulu this past Friday and there were some shocking revelations. Alex Vlasov — who worked at Black Box Security from 2012-2021 — was part of Britney’s security team. He gave very disturbing details about his time working for Britney….or should we say, Britney’s daddy. Alex described how everyone freaked out when Britney decided she wanted an iPhone. He claims his boss approached him about setting up a way to monitor her phone — like parental controls. His solution was to sign into an iCloud account on an iPad and monitor all of Britney’s communications there. He also questioned the legality of it, but was told that Britney was aware that she was being monitored. However, did she know that there was a microphone set up in her bedroom????? Britney’s current attorney says he intends to “fully and aggressively investigate.”

Angelina Jolie and The Weeknd may be a thing. Back in June, the two of them were first spotted having dinner together at a fancy Italian restaurant in Santa Monica called Giorgio Baldi. They loved it so much, they were back again Saturday night. The two of them arrived separately, but left together in the back of a chauffeur-driven SUV. Reportedly, they went back to The Weeknd’s new $70M mansion in Bel-Air.
