A Philip Seymour Hoffman playwriting prize will be funded by a libel settlement from The National Enquirer.

The $45,000 bursary was suggested by Philip Seymour Hoffman’s friend David Katz, who sued The National Enquirer over an article about their friendship.

The story was printed just days after Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death earlier this month and subsequently retracted.

David Katz’s lawyer said the prize would be funded “for years to come”.

David Burnstein told the New York Times that David Katz, who is a playwright, wanted the undisclosed settlement to be used positively, and had set up the American Playwriting Foundation as a result.

He said he had spoken often with Philip Seymour Hoffman about how “it’s a tragedy playwrights can’t survive being playwrights – about how nice it would be if you could make your rent and still have an occasional steak”.

The annual prize will be known as the Relentless Award, in a nod to Philip Seymour Hoffman’s pursuit of artistic truth and integrity.

A panel of four theatre writers, including David Katz, will form a selection committee to choose the recipient of the bursary, whose work must be previously unproduced.

The National Enquirer published a story making allegations about the relationship between Philip Seymour Hoffman and David Katz, asserting that the two men took drugs together.

David Katz said Philip Seymour Hoffman never took drugs in his presence and that he had never spoken to the publication.

The National Enquirer removed the story and contended they had been given their information by another David Katz, who claimed that he was the playwright.

As well as the libel settlement, the magazine is due to publish a full-page apology in the New York Times.

David Burnstein said the man claiming to be David Katz would also face a legal challenge.

Philip Seymour Hoffman died at the age of 46 following a drugs overdose at his New York apartment on February 2.

A never-before-heard tape of Monica Lewinsky asking for an illicit meeting with President Bill Clinton has surfaced today.

The tape, which records Monica Lewinsky desperately trying to attract President Bill Clinton into meeting her, was reportedly released to the National Enquirer after it was obtained by a cleaner hired by friends of Lewinsky.

It was long thought that the raunchy four-minute tape, which was recorded in November 1997, had been destroyed after the affair was revealed in 1998, according to the Enquirer.

The recording, made months after their final alleged trust in March 1997, reportedly shows a determined Monica Lewinsky, then 24, pleading with the married president to meet her – and telling him she plans to be persistent because: “I really want to see you.”

Monica Lewinsky adds that she is “too cute and adorable” to be ignored, according to the magazine.

On the recording, Monica Lewinsky offers Bill Clinton two choices – that she could meet him at his office, or that they could watch a movie together.

“Since I know you will be alone tomorrow evening, I have two proposals for you, neither of which is you not seeing me,” Monica Lewinsky says, the National Enquirer reported.

“I could take my clothes off and start… well… I know you wouldn’t enjoy that? I hope to see you later and I hope you will follow my script and do what I want.”

Monica Lewinsky tells Bill Clinton that his secretary, Betty Currie, should plan his schedule so that they could get away with not formally recording the meeting, according to the magazine.

For one plan, Monica Lewinsky instructs the president to tell Betty Currie that he was going to leave the office around 7 p.m. the next evening before returning later that evening.

“In the meantime I quickly sneak over and then we can have a nice little visit for, you know, 15 minutes or half an hour. Whatever you want,” she says.

Monica Lewinsky’s second suggestion is meeting Bill Clinton for a movie “and just have kind of, I don’t know, boxed dinners or something like that”, she says.

The former White House intern adds: “You can’t refuse me because I’m too cute and adorable and soon I won’t be here anymore to pop over.”

Monica Lewinsky tells Bill Clinton that he should tell Betty Currie what he wanted to do so she could call her “so I don’t have to stress out all day and I don’t have to call her every two hours and bug her because, I know you will find this very hard to believe, but I can be a pain in the ass sometimes”.

“I’m very persistent, but um… I really want to see you,” she says.

The Enquirer reported that Monica Lewinsky played the tape for Linda Tripp, who later revealed telephone tapes of the intern which led to Bill Clinton’s impeachment.

Linda Tripp reportedly heard it on November 20, 1997, and it was taken to the Oval Office the next day, but it is not known if a rendezvous ever occurred. In the audio, Monica Lewinsky explained that she had decided to record it because she couldn’t face writing him another letter.

The Enquirer reported that the tape – and begging love letters Monica Lewinsky wrote to Bill Clinton – were obtained by a cleaner who was hired by friends of Lewinsky’s.

“I was supposed to shred everything in late 1998, but for some reason I kept this material,” the cleaner told the Enquirer.

The pleading notes reportedly reveal Monica Lewinsky begging Bill Clinton to make time for her and to explain why he ended their illicit romance.

“It was so sad seeing you last night because I was so angry with you that you once again rejected me and yet, all I wanted was for everyone else in the room to disappear and for you to hold me,” she wrote.

“I loved you with all of my heart, Bill.

“For the life of me, I can’t understand how you could be so kind and so cruel to me.”

Another letter asks: “What did I do to deserve this? I am seriously depressed because of everything that has happened…

“I have lost profoundly both professionally and personally, and in a toss-up, our personal relationship changing has caused me more pain.”

Monica Lewinsky was just 22 when she allegedly had the first of nine s**ual encounters with President Bill Clinton between November 1995 and March 1997. Details of the affair emerged in 1998.

In the wake of the scandal, Monica Lewinsky became the center of a political storm and gave a series of high-profile interviews.

But unable to escape the shake the reputation, Monica Lewinsky moved to England in 2005 where she earned her master’s degree and worked as a news correspondent for the UK’s Channel Five News.

Though it has been 15 years since her claims, her presence still looms in the life of Bill Clinton’s post-presidency and Hillary’s political career.

And sources told the National Enquirer that this most recent revelation could derail Hillary Clinton’s expected bid for the White House in 2016.

“The Clintons thought this s** tape was dead and buried,” said the source.

“If this tape and other material are surfacing now, imagine what else must be out there?”

It comes at an already embarrassing moment for the Clintons as they deal with yet another texting scandal surrounding mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner.

Anthony Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, is one of Hillary Clinton’s top aides – but is taking an extended vacation to deal with the upset following news of her husband’s latest indiscretions.

New reports claim that OJ Simpson has only three months to live as a result of his extreme case of diabetes and unhealthy lifestyle behind bars.

The combination of high blood pressure, a vastly expanding waistline and a lack of physical activity as he serves a 33-year prison sentence have doctors concerned about his health.

The first warning flags were raised when OJ Simpson appeared at a hearing in May when the former running-back looked much heavier than he ever had before.

Now The National Enquirer claims that he weighs 300 pounds and prison doctors have encouraged him to exercise and eat more healthfully to combat the high blood pressure and diabetes.

Instead, OJ Simpson is listlessly passing the days by laying in bed in his prison cell and only getting up to get sugar-filled snacks.

“OJ’s doctors have told him he could be dead in as little as three months because of his out-of-control blood sugar and blood pressure,” an unidentified prison friend told The Enquirer.

“But OJ doesn’t care. He knows he’s never going to get out of prison, so he refuses to take care of himself.”

The 33-years OJ Simpson faces following a 2008 robbery are not helping motivate Simpson, as he is now making plans for his death.

He allegedly confessed to murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman in 1994 and told a prison friend that he will write a confession letter that will be sent- and then publicly shared- after he dies.

OJ Simpson’s lawyer, Ozzie Fumo, countered this claim, saying that in his months of interactions with Simpson he has “never once disparaged the Goldmans”.

“In his mind, they’re creditors along with his children Sydney and Justin,” Ozzie Fumo said.

The friends cited by The Enquirer said the double slaying came in a moment of rage that he regrets to this day because he still loves Nicole Brown.

OJ Simpson also reportedly tasked his few close friends with finding ways to hide his remaining $2 million in off-shore accounts so that his son and daughter can access it after his death.

In doing so, OJ Simpson would be in direct violation with the 1997 court ruling that said he owes Ron Goldman’s relatives $21 million after he was found at fault in a wrongful death civil suit.

He has become even more withdrawn and oddly behaved – reportedly singing The Wizard of Oz’s If I Only Had a Brain to himself – since the retrial hearing in May.

“He ignores people when they talk to him and often wanders around in a glassy-eyed trance. His family is being supportive but he’s not paying attention to them either,” one of OJ Simpson’s friends told The Enquirer.

Johnny Berry, Amanda Berry’s father,  has revealed how his daughter is struggling to recover after ten years in captivity in Cleveland and is petrified that her accused kidnapper Ariel Castro is coming back for her.

Johnny Berry, 52, who is dying from a deadly pulmonary disease, told the National Enquirer that: “Amanda’s having a terrible time. She’s having nightmares every night, waking up screaming and crying, terrified that Castro is coming after her, or that she’s still a prisoner.

“She’s told me she’s afraid her freedom is a dream and she’s going to wake up to the horror of finding out she is still a prisoner.”

As Amanda Berry recovers from her decade-long prison ordeal, her father has spoken of his anger to declare that he would like to kill her accused kidnapper Ariel Castro.

“If I could get my hands on that monster Castro, I’d kill him myself!” said Johnny Berry from his death bed in Elizabethton, Tennessee.

Near paralyzed from recent back surgery, Johnny Berry, who is covered in tattoos and wears an uncomfortable neck brace, explained that if he can’t kill Ariel Castro, then he wants him to rot in jail for the rest of his life.

“If I can’t kill him, I don’t want the state to execute him,” said Johnny Berry to the National Enquirer.

“That would be too easy for him.”

“I want him in prison for the rest of his life. I know people in there who can make his life a living hell for what he did to Amanda. I want them to beat the s**t out of him every single day.”

Johnny Berry, Amanda Berry’s father, has revealed how his daughter is struggling to recover after ten years in captivity in Cleveland

Amanda Berry was dramatically rescued from Ariel Castro’s Cleveland, Ohio, home along with Gina DeJesus, Michelle Knight and her own six year old child by Castro, Jocelyn on May 6th.

The three women had been kept prisoner by Ariel Castro for almost ten years and suffered systematic rapes, beatings and induced abortions at the hands of the 52-year-old former school bus driver.

It has been claimed that the three dogs who lived in the home with the girls were kept in better condition that they were – and the girls still have to decide whether they want to take them back.

The last time that Johnny Berry saw his daughter, she was working as a 16-year-old in the local Burger King, enjoying her time at school where she was doing well.

Now, Johnny Berry, who has served time himself in jail for s**ual battery and aggravated assault, has expressed his fears that he may never see his daughter again or the grand-daughter he has never met.

However, he told the National Enquirer that he has at least spoken to Amanda twice since her lucky escape earlier this month.

“When she called me, her voice was the most beautiful sound I ever heard,” said Johnny Berry.

“She said, <<Hi daddy. I’m still alive. I love you, love you, love you!>> We were both crying…it was the happiest day of my life.”

Amanda Berry, who is now 27 is living currently with her sister Beth Serrano in Cleveland and is said to be suffering from the horrifying memories of her ordeal at the hands of Ariel Castro.

Johnny Berry was married to Amanda’s mother, Louwana Miller up until one month before Amanda’s disappearance. Louwana Miller died in 2005.

“I can’t say I was the best dad in the world,” admitted Johnny Berry.

“I feel a lot of guilt that I wasn’t there for Amanda when she needed me.

“If I had known where she was, I would have gotten a gun and gone over there and gotten her out myself, but we had no idea. It was like she just disappeared off the face of the earth.”

Despite his confirmation that his daughter is struggling, the three women rescued after being held captive in a Cleveland house for about a decade want the community to know they are doing fine and appreciate offers of help.

The message was relayed in a letter released Tuesday by their attorneys.

The letter said Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight are happy and safe. A charity fund to help the women has raised more than $650,000 from more than 6,800 donors.

Amanda Berry broke through a locked door on May 6, yelled to neighbors for help and enabled Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus to escape.

Ariel Castro, a 52-year-old former school bus driver, has been charged with three counts of rape and four counts of kidnapping, one for each of the three women and one for Amanda Berry’s 6-year-old daughter fathered by Castro.

His defense team says he will plead not guilty. The case is pending before a Cuyahoga County grand jury.

The US most hated mother, Casey Anthony, is allegedly telling close friends that she is expecting again.

Casey Anthony is pregnant with another child and is thrilled at the chance to “prove” that she is a good mother even after she was acquitted of killing her first daughter Caylee.

According to the National Enquirer, which published a story based on the claims of multiple unidentified sources, the infamous mother is pregnant.

“She just said that she fell in love with a very wealthy man while she’s been in hiding. Casey said he’s taking care of her financially and he’s so obsessed with her that he’ll do anything for her,” an unnamed insider told the tabloid.

Casey Anthony, a former murder suspect, was in hiding since the July 2011 trial when she was found not guilty of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, only appearing in public last week to declare bankruptcy.

According to the National Enquirer, however, claims that her rock bottom finances are not the only news of note in the 26-year-old’s life at the moment.

They allege that Casey Anthony is bragging to close friends that she is more than a month pregnant.

Her loose-fitting clothing at the March 4 court appearance gave nothing away about her condition, so the rumor mill is left to run rampant about the state of her would-be pregnancy.

“Her eyes lit up when she told me that she was expecting, but she wouldn’t tell me who the baby’s father is,” the source told The Enquirer.

The National Enquirer also claims that there is a group of concerned citizens who have created a petition to force Casey Anthony to be sterilized, and should she have another baby, they will apparently argue that the child should be turned over to social services. Neither the name of the group- nor the names of any participants- were not listed in the article.

If Casey Anthony continues to keep the identity of her partner a secret, it will be the second time that the identity of her child’s father is kept a secret, though she apparently does know the man in this case.

One of the many shocking revelations related to her first daughter Caylee’s murder trial was that a psychiatrist reported that Casey Anthony was impregnated when she was passed out at a party at the age of 18-years-old and discovered a while later that she was with child.

Though there is no hint as to who is the mystery man who apparently impregnated Casey Anthony recently, her supposed claims that he is wealthy will undoubtedly come in handy.

Casey Anthony is not receiving any money in book and TV deals, and is living on the kindness of her former lawyer and strangers.

She bemoaned the fact that she’s unemployed and has not received any income in the months since her acquittal in the murder of her daughter Caylee, who was found dead in 2008.

Instead, she’s been getting by on unsolicited gift cards and donations, and funds given to her by her former attorney, Jose Baez.

After the meeting, Casey Anthony was escorted out of the courthouse by a U.S. Marshal.

Upon her arrival on March 4, Casey Anthony was joined by attorney Cheney Mason, who shielded her from the crowd of reporters and photographers that swarmed her as she emerged from an SUV.

Casey Anthony filed for bankruptcy in January, claiming she was $792,000 in debt and had assets of just $1,000.

Court documents show that Casey Anthony is currently unemployed and has no income to speak of.

Reeva Steenkamp’s family has categorically denied that she was pregnant when Oscar Pistorius shot and killed her.

The National Enquirer reported earlier this week that Reeva Steenkamp told Oscar Pistorius that she was pregnant to placate him after he accused her of cheating on him.

But today family spokesman Mike Steenkamp denied the reports were true and said the model’s mother, June Steenkamp, would have known.

“The post mortem would have revealed if Reeva was pregnant and it did not reveal anything like this. Maybe it comes from the other side, to garner and build up some sort of support for Oscar,” June Steenkamp told Times Live.

Oscar Pistorius claims he killed Reeva Steenkamp accidentally, opening fire after mistaking her for an intruder in his bathroom. But prosecutors say the athlete intentionally shot her in cold blood after the couple had an argument.

The National Enquirer reported on Monday that the argument was sparked by the news that Oscar Pistorius was about to become a father.

A source close to investigation told the Enquirer: “Police believe the preg­nancy secret she revealed is what sent Pistorius over the edge and left her dead, with bullet wounds to the head, chest, pelvis and hand.”

The source added: “Later that night, neighbors com­plained of shouting and fighting coming from the house.

“Police were called to in­vestigate, but it appeared to be just another lover’s spat, so nothing was done except to ask them to quiet down.”

It’s the latest lurid claim to hit the case, which has seen numerous sensational allegations in the wake of Reeva Steenkamp’s death. However, it remains unconfirmed in South Africa.

Oscar Pistorius, who had both of his legs amputated below the knee when he was just 11 months old, competed on a set of prosthetic blades, earning him the nickname “blade runner”.

He has competed as a sprinter in each of the Paralympic Summer Games since 2004 until running alongside able-bodied athletes in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

But his days as a runner will be numbered if he’s found guilty of Reeva Steenkamp’s murder.

The National Enquirer claims Angelina Jolie recently “told an astonished Brad that her former flame, Irish actor Colin Farrell, put him to shame between the sheets.”

“In a dig designed to push Brad Pitt’s buttons, Angelina Jolie insulted his manhood, and the devastated actor has gone on a drunken rampage!” declares the National Enquirer, an outlet whose reporting on the couple tends to alternate between despicable and nonsensical.

Her “sex confession” allegedly sent Brad Pitt into a “boozy tailspin,” allege sources for the Enquirer.

“Brad caught Angie red-handed, admitting that she thinks he’s a so-so lover,” says one insider for the facts-challenged tabloid.

The National Enquirer “source” continues: “Ever since then, he’s been on a drunken rampage – consuming copious amounts of his favorite beer and red wine.”

According to the magazine, Brad Pitt was “even spotted staggering up to a Taco Bell drive-thru window” at 1 a.m. last month, with an alleged “eyewitness” claiming the actor “looked drunk, and after he realized the fast-food joint was closed, he stumbled off into the early morning darkness.”

In any case, the tabloid insists that a booze-addled Brad Pitt has been on an extended bender ever since he allegedly first heard Angelina Jolie complaining about her sex life during a phone call with ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton.

“Angie told Billy Bob that her love life with Brad had gone cold, and she missed the wild, passionate sex she’d had with Colin,” says the Enquirer source.

The Enquirer goes on to explain how an enraged, eavesdropping Brad Pitt confronted Angelina Jolie and forced her to admit details of her supposed sex life with Colin Farrell, and that she still “lusts” for him, resulting in Pitt’s extended “drunken rage.”

The tabloid also claims that Brad Pitt is allegedly outraged over everything from Angelina Jolie’s eighth-grade “hookup” to her non-existent “plans to reunite” with Billy Bob Thornton.

Tiger Woods is reportedly attempting to win his ex-wife Elin Nordegren back with a $200 million deal, according to the National Enquirer.

Tiger Woods, 37, is desperate to win his ex-wife back, according to the magazine and has offered the hefty pre-nup deal.

Elin Nordegren, 33, who won a $110 million divorce settlement from the sportsman, is believed to have told him she will consider the proposal – but only if he includes a $350 million anti-cheating clause into the wedding contract.

Swedish blonde Elin Nordegren is the mother of Tiger Woods’ two young children, Samantha, 5, and Charlie, 3.

A source told the Enquirer the deal was worth more than half of Tiger’s $600 million fortune, adding Elin Nordegren feels it’s enough to keep him from straying.

The source claimed: “Tiger didn’t even balk at the demand. Even though his accountants think he’s crazy, he’s ready to sign the pre-nup and set a wedding date.

“The guy has never recovered from being dumped by Elin. He’s dated lots of models and bimbos, but none of them were more than a one night stand.”

Once golf’s greatest superstar, Tiger Woods’ career and marriage fell apart after he was revealed as a serial cheater and had a series of mistresses, the most high-profile being New York party girl Rachel Uchitel.

The couple divorced after five years in 2010 and Elin Nordegren is currently spending a lot of time and money on creating her dream home, rebuilding a $12 million North Palm Beach estate in Florida.

Since their divorce, Elin Nordegren has dated several men, including wealthy financier Jamie Dingman.

The stunning Swede, who recently showed off her flawless figure while on holiday in the Bahamas with her children and family, has been spotted around South Florida with professional hockey player Douglas Murray, who she was first romantically linked to in July 2012.

However, the NHL player didn’t appear to be vacationing with Elin Nordegren and her family at the exclusive Paradise Island resort.

A source told the Enquirer: “Tiger swore that he’d never cheat on her again, but Elin told him that she didn’t believe him.”

The magazine claims that Tiger Woods even got down on one knee and proposed, presenting Elin Nordegren with a ring for Christmas.

The Enquirer also alleges the couple are having sex again and a source claimed: “Tiger stopped by Elin’s rental house one afternoon when their kids were out with a nanny and they had sex for the first time since the split.

“It took them both by surprise, but they’ve continued to find alone time when they’re both at their homes in Florida.”

Tiger Woods is believed to have been left upset after seeing pictures of Elin Nordegren frolicking with a young hunk on the beach at the Atlantic resort in the Bahamas earlier this month.

However, he then discovered the man was Elin Nordegren’s brother Axel.

The source said: “Tiger breathed a sigh of relief. He and Elin actually got a big laugh out of it.

“Tiger told me <<I love Elin>>. Without her, I’ll be miserable for the rest of my life.”

Whitney Houston was murdered by drug dealers and a new surveillance video proves it, claims Paul Huebl, a Hollywood private investigator.

Paul Huebl says he has turned over evidence to the FBI that shows 48-year-old Whitney Houston was killed over a drug debt in February.

The medical examiner ruled that Whitney Houston drowned in her bathtub at the Beverley Hilton hotel after taking a cocktail of cocaine, marijuana and several legal drugs.

The National Enquirer is reporting that Paul Huebl believes the troubled star was targeted by several “high powered drug dealers who sent thugs to collect a huge debt she owed for drugs”.

Whitney Houston owed $1.5 million to drug dealers, according to some reports.

However, Paul Huebl said he doesn’t know for certain that Whitney Houston was killed – only that evidence he collected could point in that direction.

Paul Huebl says that Whitney Houston received a delivery of cocaine to her room the day before her death and could be heard saying: “I’m tired of this sh*t.”

He says Whitney Houston had previously been subjected to harassment dealers trying to collect on her debt.

Whitney Houston was murdered by drug dealers and a new surveillance video proves it, claims Paul Huebl, a Hollywood private investigator

Paul Huebl says he obtained surveillance video that shows two unknown men who repeatedly went to the Beverly Hilton and integrated themselves into Whitney Houston’s entourage.
The private investigator claims these are the men who slipped into Whitney Houston’s hotel room and killed her.

He also disagrees with the Los Angeles County Coroner’s ruling that the star’s death was “accidental”.

“Whitney’s body shows classic defense wounds that would have occurred while she was battling for her life,” he told the Enquirer.

However, Paul Huebl conceded that the marks on her hands and fingernails could have been obtained in some other ways and that they were only “suspected” defensive wounds.

The private investigator said he also has evidence that Whitney Houston’s hotel room was ransacked, showing further hints of a violent struggle.

Paul Huebl says he gave his evidence to the Chicago field office of the FBI in the hopes that the agency will open a criminal investigation.

I think that if you put all these things together, they do kind of spell homicide, with a big red capital <<H>>,” he said.

Paul Heubl, a former Chicago police officer who became an actor after he retired, says he conducted the investigation after being hired by a client who did not believe the official reports on Houston’s death.

He believes Beverley Hills police did not fully investigate Houston’s death because they did not want to bring the negative attention to Beverly Hills or to the Beverly Hilton.

Paul Huebl would not say who hired him.

Holly Petraeus has reportedly threatened David Petraeus with divorce after she was left humiliated by his affair with Paula Broadwell

Holly Petraeus has reportedly threatened David Petraeus with divorce after she was left humiliated by his affair with Paula Broadwell

Holly Petraeus, former CIA director’s wife of 38 years, has reportedly threatened David Petraeus with divorce after she was left “humiliated” by his affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell, it has been claimed today.

Holly Petraeus is reportedly “furious” about the affair, which forced her husband to resign from the top of the CIA ten days ago, and is demanding to know how many other women he has shared trysts with throughout their marriage.

“She can’t turn on a television, go online or open a newspaper without being bombarded by the latest revelations about his cheating,” a source told the National Enquirer.

“No wonder she’s angry. David has been falling all over himself, apologizing and begging Holly to forgive him, but she isn’t listening. After all his lies, she doesn’t believe anything he says anymore, and she’s thinking about consulting a divorce attorney.”

The source claimed Holly Petraeus has suspicions that her husband had an affair with Jill Kelley, the Florida socialite who sparked his downfall after tipping off the FBI about threatening emails from Paula Broadwell.

While David Petraeus denies they have ever been involved, Holly Petraeus is uncertain and keeps demanding to know how many other women he has cheated on her with, the source said.

Jill Kelley has also denied any wrongdoing and said in a statement she was simply a friend of David Petraeus, whom she met through her work at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa.

Holly and David Petraeus attended lavish garden parties at Jill Kelley’s Tampa, Florida mansion, where she lives with her husband, their three children and her twin sister, Natalie Khawam.

The Petraeuses have been married 38 years after meeting on a blind date when David Petraeus was a student at the military academy at West Point, where Holly’s father was the superintendent.

David Petraeus graduated in June 1947 and the couple married the following month, before going on to have two children, Ann and Stephen, and travelling throughout the world with his work.

Despite moving 24 times in 38 years, Holly Petraeus has also built her own career.

She became a volunteer, performing military and family support roles on bases, before working with service members as a financial advocate to ensure they were treated fairly by businesses.

 

In 2011, Holly Petraeus was appointed to the newly-created Consumer Financial Protection Bureau as head of the Office of Servicemember Affairs, a post she still holds.

Holly Petraeus’ threats of divorce come little more than a month after she and her husband were the picture of unity at their daughter’s wedding – three months after David Petraeus’ affair with Paula Broadwell had come to an end.

But on November 9, he stepped down from the CIA after the FBI uncovered his relationship with Paula Broadwell.

The affair was discovered after Paula Broadwell sent a string of “threatening” emails to military party planner Jill Kelley, whom she deemed a threat.

According to friends, Jill Kelley considered some of the anonymous messages death threats, after Paula Broadwell vowed to make Kelley “go away” – and the concerned housewife contacted the FBI.

The anonymous emails contained classified information about David Petraeus’ whereabouts and, thinking there had been a potential national security breach, the FBI was forced to investigate.

During their probe, they traced the emails back to Paula Broadwell and also uncovered emails revealing her months-long affair with David Petraeus, whom she had first met as a student in 2006.

In interviews and her biography of David Petraeus, All In, Paula Broadwell lauded Holly Petraeus as a “wonderful source of information” and revealed that she had read the book and enjoyed it.

In the book, Paula Broadwell recounted details from dozens of hours of interviews between Holly and David Petraeus in a description of how the couple met and fell in love.

Paula Broadwell described the relationship as virtually unbreakable – while at the same time carrying on an illicit affair with David behind Holly Petraeus’ back.

Bruce and Kris Jenner have been hit by tabloid claims their marriage is on the rocks.

Former Olympic athlete Bruce Jenner has apparently consulted a divorce lawyer regarding his 21-year marriage to the Kardashian matriarch.

This week’s edition of the National Enquirer reports Bruce Jenner has reached breaking point because of Kris allegedly flirting with younger men – and her ego over the Kardashian clan’s growing business empire.

The couple – who have teen daughters Kendall and Kylie together and a $155 million fortune – renewed their wedding vows last year, which was aired during an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

But insiders told the National Enquirer: “Bruce feels that Kris treats him like a doormat, and he’s had enough.

“She constantly belittles his appearance and complains to mutual friends that he’s a boring old fart.

“Then she has the gall to flaunt her relationships with younger guys in his face!”

The tabloid magazine reports that Bruce Jenner, 63, has been discussing the idea of divorce with golfing friends at Lake Sherwood Country Club in Calabasas, California, where he regularly attends.

The insider added that Bruce Jenner hates the way Kris Jenner, 57, is portrayed as the money-maker – and how his Country Club pals jokingly refer to him as “Bruce Kardashian”.

The National Enquirer claims Bruce Jenner has sought the help of an entertainment lawyer who has helped him value their assets in the event he decides to file for divorce.

“He’s also talked to a divorce attorney buddy about potential custody arrangements for his two girls with Kris,” the source added.

June Shannon has hired a 24-hour bodyguard to protect her youngest daughter, Honey Boo Boo.

The security measure is believed to be in response to an alleged plot to abduct seven-year-old reality star Alana Thompson.

While the network behind the hit show, TLC, has denied any suggestions of a kidnap plot, June Shannon, confirmed the full-time protection via Facebook.

June Shannnon wrote: “Alana doesn’t go anywhere without her bodyguard! We have one 24/7 everywhere we go ALL the time!”

According to The National Enquirer, Honey Boo Boo’s school received abduction threats from an anonymous caller.

A source told the tabloid: “June is terrified. With the threats on Alana’s safety increasing, security is being provided for her around the clock.

“There was a meeting with all the teachers at Alana’s school. They have been instructed to keep an eye on Alana, and they know to report anything suspicious immediately.”

An attempted break-in at the Honey Boo Boo household in rural McIntyre, Georgia on August 27 is also believed to have triggered concerns over their safety.

The source added that police told the clan it “may have been casing the place for a future kidnap attempt, by someone convinced that TLC would pay a huge ransom for their newest little star”.

Despite Here Comes Honey Boo Boo reality show attracting huge ratings since airing on August 8, the family has remained in the same neighborhood.

The National Enquirer reveals that the family has thought “about moving, but the problem is that TLC has them locked under contract to keep their lifestyle”.

However, TMZ previously reported that the network wanted to help the stars relocate to a larger and more secure home, but June Shannon declined the offer.

It also described that TLC boosted the family’s wage from approximately $5,000 per episode, to a sky-high $20,000 after seeing the success of the series.

June Shannon, Honey Boo Boo’s mother, attempted to give her first daughter, Anna “Chickadee”, away for adoption after becoming a parent at 15, it was claimed today.

The 33-year-old reality star from McIntyre, Georgia, now a mother-of-four, first asked relatives if they would take the baby while pregnant, sister-in-law Janice Shannon has apparently said.

June Shannon is said to have then “abandoned” Anna, then seven, at the home of her mother, Sandra Hale, in order to “move into a trailer with a boyfriend”.

According to the National Enquirer, Janice Shannon, who was married to June’s late brother, Jimmy, had been prepared to take Anna, but June did not want to lose her parental rights so the adoption failed to take place.

The magazine says that child welfare officers eventually gave custody of Anna to Sandra Hale, and it was only this year that the teen moved back in with her mother.

But the current arrangement is just for the cameras, it claims.

A source told the title: “Anna lived with Sandra until earlier this year, when June bribed her with $500 a month to move back in with the family and be on the TV show.

“They thought that Anna’s illegitimate teenage pregnancy would make for good story lines for the show.”

Anna is now a teenage mother herself, to two-month-old Kaitlyn, who was born with an extra thumb on one hand.

She is no longer in a relationship with the baby’s father, Caleb Clark, 19, who she dated for two years.

Caleb Clark says he is now fighting to gain access to Kaitlyn and told the tabloid that he wants to get the child “out of that house and away from that family”, but is unable to take action because Anna apparently refuses to let him take a paternity test.

Caleb Clark told the Enquirer: “Anna was in her grandmother’s custody, but she was still desperate to get away from June officially. June was a lousy mother to Anna.”

He insisted that the happy cohesive family that appears on television is a far cry from reality.

“You can see it,” he continued.

“Anna still resents June and stands apart from the rest of the family. When the cameras are turned off, Anna doesn’t have much to do with any of them.”

Caleb Clark told the tabloid that he had every intention of marrying Anna until she admitted that she had cheated on him.

Anna, who does not have a relationship with her own father, ex-con David Dunn, supposedly sent Caleb Clark an email when she discovered she was pregnant.

It apparently read: “I kinda had sex with someone the week before we did, but I trusted him to wear a condom, but I don’t think he did, and that’s what scares me.”

Doug Gotterba, John Travolta’s former pilot who claims he had a six-year affair with the actor is lifting the curtain on their alleged relationship.

So far unsubstantiated claims emerged in June Doug Gotterba had a long-term relationship with the actor in the Eighties – before his marriage to Kelly Preston.

Doug Goterba, 62, in an explosive new interview about their alleged affair, claims John Travolta admitted he “preferred men” shortly after his 1991 nuptials, according to The National Enquirer.

The former pilot, who began working for the Pulp Fiction star in 1981, has told the tabloid the pair began a sexual relationship shortly thereafter.

While John Travolta’s lawyers have strenuously denied a wave of similar allegations made against him by other parties, Doug Gotterba moved forward with the interview, recalling when, he says, the pair’s relationship took a turn.

He told the Enquirer: “We flew into Monterey, California, and went up to the Highlands resort in Carmel. We had a wonderful dinner with a fantastic bottle of merlot, and I got the sense I was being courted.

“As we walked from the restaurant back to the room, John suddenly said, <<Hey, would you like a massage?>>.

“I’d already prepared myself for something like that, so I said, <<Sure, why not?>>. I went back to his room, showered and came out wearing only a towel. John said, <<Okay, like, down here on the bed>>. He gave me a massage – and it turned into something else!

“John was gentle, but very passionate. The next day, he told me with a big smile on his face, <<I really enjoyed last night>>. And I told him, >>So did I!>.”

According to Doug Gotterba, the pair continued to see each other romantically for the next six years. During that time, he said, John Travolta enjoyed having multiple sexual partners and wanted to make a sex tape.

He claims the last time the pair saw each other was in 1992, a year after the actor married his wife, Kelly Preston.

Doug Gotterba recalled: “They’d just gotten back from the Church of Scientology’s Celebrity Center in Hollywood when I arrived and John asked me to go with him for a walk on the beach.

“We were making small talk when suddenly, I blurted out, <<So, John, tell me. Now that you’re married, do you still prefer men – or women?>>. He looked me straight in the eye and said, <<Well, Doug, I still prefer men!>>. I said, <<okay>>. And that’s the last time we saw each other.”

John Travolta’s sex scandal saga began in May, when the A-lister was hit with two lawsuits from male masseurs claiming the actor made sexual advances towards them during massages – though one claim was later withdrawn.

The actor’s one-time secretary Joan Edwards – who worked for the star from 1978 to 1994 – followed in June with allegations of an affair between John Travolta and Doug Gotterba.

It then emerged last month that author Robert Randolph has claimed in a lawsuit the actor and his attorney, Marty Singer, made false claims about his mental health in a bid to bring the writer’s credibility into question.

Marty Singer’s legal team managed to stop his book You’ll Never Spa in This Town Again – in which Robert Randolph made explosive claims he witnessed John Travolta engaged in sexual intercourse with other men at various bathhouses – from making it onto the shelves.

New claims continued to emerge, with various people coming out of the woodwork making similar allegations. And while John Travolta has not addressed the allegations directly, though his legal team in the past has strenuously denied them and have prepared to take legal action.

Marty Singer this month filed suit against cruise ship worker Fabian Zanzi, who in May made claims the actor sexually assaulted him aboard a 2009 cruise; the lawyer also said recently said the pair intend to sue Robert Randolph’s attorneys for malicious prosecution.

John Travolta, 58, has meanwhile put on a brave face.

He stepped out earlier this month at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 2012 Installation Luncheon at the Beverly Hills Hotel, where he cavorted with fellow stars including Bradley Cooper, Dustin Hoffman and Steven Spielberg.

His wife, Kelly Preston, has stood by the actor, supporting him at public events while meanwhile enjoying time abroad with her husband and their 20-month-old Benjamin, in late July and August.

John Travolta and Kelly Preston share two children, Benjamin and Ella Blue, 11. Their eldest child Jett died in 2009 at the age of 17.

Vanessa Bryant has denied that she has been under the surgeon’s knife after reports suggested she had sought cosmetic help to stop philandering husband Kobe from straying.

Vanessa Bryant’s representatives have blasted the allegations as “100 per cent not true” and “ridiculous”.

During her appearance at the London Olympic Games, Vanessa Bryant, 30, set tongues wagging that she had undergone surgery after pictures of her looking rather different from her former self emerged.

A source told The National Enquirer that Vanessa Bryant was starting to feel “insecure” about her looks and “would do anything to keep Kobe happy”.

Not only had she made obvious changes to her hair, which once bared blonde highlights and is now raven black, but her skin tone, pout, brow and tip of the nose appeared to belong to someone else.

Vanessa Bryant denies having plastic surgery after reports claimed she had sought cosmetic help to stop philandering husband Kobe from straying

Vanessa Bryant denies having plastic surgery after reports claimed she had sought cosmetic help to stop philandering husband Kobe from straying

Plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn offered his expertise to the US publication, saying: “Vanessa appears to have undergone some plastic surgery.

“Her nose is thin with what appears to be scars at the base of each nostril. In some people, this is a telltale sign of a nose job.”

The medical professional – who practices in Troy, Michigan – also stated that Vanessa Bryant’s lips look to have been plumped, “possibly from an injectable filler like Juvederm”.

Following Kobe Bryant’s rumored reputation of playing away from home, including an admission to one particular infidelity in 2003 and pictures of him shirtless with two women during a recent nightclub venture, Vanessa is said to be “obsessed” with her looks in a bid to stay young and youthful for her husband of 11 years.

A source told the Enquirer: “The sad thing is that Vanessa is wrecking her natural beauty.

“She started freaking out over a few crow’s feet, and the next thing you know she was getting a full facial makeover… she is extremely insecure.

“She’d do anything to keep Kobe happy.”

The on/off couple has had a somewhat turbulent romance over the years and was on the verge of divorce just two months ago.

But during the London Olympics, they appeared to have reconciled and were seen laughing in the stands during a swimming final with their six-year-old daughter Gianna.

However, Australian Olympic gold medalist Stephanie Rice was still forced to deny she was having a fling with Kobe Bryant after they were seen during a cycling event together.

Honey Boo Boo’s parents have been accused of child abuse, according to a new report.

Six-year-old pageant queen Alana Thompson, aka Honey Boo Boo of Toddlers & Tiaras fame, and her family, who live in rural McIntrye, Georgia, were visited by the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services in March, reported The National Enquirer.

A source told the magazine that authorities who made the unannounced visit “found reason to bring the case to court” but a “court-appointed attorney” for June Thompson, the youngster’s mother, convinced the judge to “throw it [the case] out”.

The source said investigators were called to the home as a result of June and Mike Thompson’s unorthodox, and highly-publicized, parenting methods which include feeding Alana caffeinated drinks as well as roadkill for dinner.

The family now star in their own spin-off reality series, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, which has also showed Alana Thompson go mud belly flop diving, adopt a pet pig named Glitzy, attend local food auctions with June and help her buy more than a dozen packets of chocolate milk powder, during one supermarket visit, using discount coupons.

The source added: “Honey Boo Boo’s upbringing raised eyebrows with neighbors.”

The initial visit by authorities is said to have occurred “shortly after filming began” on the new TLC series which premiered on August 8. It attracted 2.2 million viewers.

Although June Thompson sparked outrage back in January when she was seen on Toddlers & Tiaras feeding Alana “Go Go Juice”, a mixture of Mountain Dew and Red Bull, the authorities visited the family after catching wind of an online video that showed Alana dancing for dollars in a bar.

The video, which can still be found on YouTube, was not filmed by the network however showed Alana Thompson in a darkened room, dancing atop of table as colored lights flash around her.

June Thompson defended her daughter’s actions by explaining that Alana Thompson had been dancing in a college bar, not a sleazy one.

The “Go Go Juice” incident, which saw Alana Thompson being fed the liquid after having downed 15 bags of Pixy Stix, tubes of powdered sugar commonly referred to as “pageant crack”, attracted negative criticism of its own.

June Thompson was filmed instructing Alana to take “two big gulps” from an unlabelled bottle.

Within seconds, the change was apparent and the pageant hopeful was seen rapidly swinging her arms over her head and spinning around on the floor, exclaiming: “My Go Go juice is kicking in right now!”

Beauty pageant insiders speculate that some mothers’ “special juice” blends may even contain alcohol.

Describing how the drink made her feel, Alana Thompson said: “Go Go juice makes me laughy, and play-ey, and makes me feel like I want to pull my mommy’s hair.”

June Thompson has stolen much of the limelight away from her daughter in the new reality series.

During its debut episode, she was seen grinding up against a young man as her daughter played in a giant mud pit.

She has also been filmed taking her family to the supermarket to help her shop using discount coupons and take Alana to their local food auction, June’s favorite weekly activity, in order to bid on what appeared to be sugary donuts.

June Thompson has also admitted that she is obsessed with “couponing”, labeling it “better than sex” in a teaser for tonight’s new episode of the reality series.

The coupon queen, as she is commonly referred to, continued: “Couponing is a serious obsession. Anybody who uses coupons will tell you that it is an addiction.”

Recent pictures appear to show Macaulay Culkin in anything but good health, as he feels the urge to be sick in public.

Macaulay Culkin was pictured looking pale and nauseous outside Chateau Marmont on Friday, in the first pictures of the 31-year-old since he denied claims in the National Enquirer that the former child star is “hooked on heroin”.

Macaulay Culkin, who now works as a DJ, was seen wearing grey jeans and a plait shirt.

The actor wore an unbuttoned black jacket and hid beneath a pair of shades, accessorizing with orange nail polish and a sprinkling of gold rings.

His blonde hair was flicked back and his stubble was growing out into a beard and moustache.

Macaulay Culkin was seen clutching his stomach as he looked ready to throw-up.

As Macaulay Culkin moved towards the bush, he leaned his head over the greenery and despite initially looking overwhelmed by the need to be sick, he just spat and cleared his mouth out instead.

After his momentary indiscretion, he walked to a friend’s car while puffing on a cigarette.

Macaulay Culkin has been plagued by rumors recently that he is on a downward spiral of drug addiction and has just “six months to live”.

The actor is rumored to be struggling against heroin addiction and addiction to painkillers.

His spokesperson was forced to deny claims published by the National Enquirer last week that the Uncle Buck star has a $6,000-a-month drug habit.

His representatives branded the tabloid article “ridiculously fictitious” and “insulting”.

The allegations said Macaulay Culkin regularly shoots up heroin and addictive painkiller oxycodone (dubbed hillbilly heroin).

The report went on to claim Macaulay Culkin turned his Manhattan apartment into a drug den.

The National Enquirer claims Macaulay Culkin’s alleged drug use intensified 18 months ago – around the time he split from long-term girlfriend Mila Kunis, who is now dating Ashton Kutcher.

The National Enquirer is firmly standing by its story that Macaulay Culkin is hooked on heroin and highly addictive painkillers.

The tabloid has posted a statement on its website, urging Macaulay Culkin, 31, to seek urgent professional help – and challenged him to take a blood test.

It comes after his representatives strenuously denied the magazine’s report on Wednesday – which features on the cover under the headline: “Macaulay Culkin addicted to heroin: 6 months to live.”

The Enquirer posted a statement on its website yesterday, reading: “Should Macaulay’s representatives continue to deny The ENQUIRER’s accurate and detailed report, we are ready to offer him the opportunity to take a blood test administered by an independent medical lab.”

It adds: “Our advice to Macaulay is to seek professional help to avoid the same tragic fate of other beloved celebrities, including Whitney Houston who died earlier this year.”

The Enquirer‘s statement also refers to Macaulay Culkin’s friend Elijah Rosello, who died in March aged 24 from a heroin overdose.

In the article, the magazine alleges Macaulay Culkin and Elijah Rosello used to do drugs together – and repeats this again in today’s statement.

It went on: “We believe that the former child star should be doing everything he can to get the treatment he so desperately needs – and which could have saved the life of his friend Elijah Rosello.

“Her family confirmed to The ENQUIRER that she did drugs with Macaulay before her drug-related death in March.”

On Wednesday, Macaulay Culkin’s spokeswoman Michelle Bega branded the article – which claimed the actor has a $6,000-a-month drug habit – as “ridiculously fictitious” and “insulting”.

The magazine alleged Macaulay Culkin regularly shoots up heroin and the highly addictive painkiller oxycodone – dubbed hillbilly heroin.

The article went on to say the former child star turned his Manhattan apartment into a drug den where he gets high either by himself or with friends.

Responding to the allegations earlier this week, Michelle Bega said: “The report in the National Enquirer that Macaulay Culkin is addicted to heroin and assorted hallucinogenics is not only categorically without merit, but it is also impossibly and ridiculously fictitious.”

She added that the story was “destructive and insulting”, to her client.

The Enquirer says Macaulay Culkin’s drug use intensified 18 months ago – around the time he split from long-term girlfriend Mila Kunis, who is now dating Ashton Kutcher.

A source told the publication: “Macaulay Culkin is hooked on drugs and it’s killing him.

“He’s been hooked for a year and a half, and his drug of choice is either heroin or oxycodone.

“Mac is surrounding himself with junkies and lowlifes. It’s a real tragedy.”

The source – described by the Enquirer as a “close friend” – also claimed Macaulay Culkin has had a close brush with death in the past year and almost overdosed.

“Mac suffered a near overdose, and needed help,” the insider said.

“Fortunately he didn’t need to call 911 and the near-OD was kept quiet among his pals. But Mac got very sick.”

In February, pictures of Macaulay Culkin looking emaciated and shockingly thin made headlines.

At the time his representatives strenuously denied the actor was addicted to prescription drugs or heroin amid reports the 5-foot-7 star’s weight had dropped to 104 lbs.

Macaulay Culkin is best known for his roles as cheeky Kevin McCallister in the 1990 film Home Alone and the 1992 sequel, Home Alone: Lost In New York.

He also starred in the likes of Uncle Buck, My Girl and Richie Rich.

But his adult career has failed to match the blockbuster success of his childhood days.

In 2003 he played a drug-addled club hopper alongside Seth Green in Party Monster, while his last film role was in 2007 in the Indie flick Sex And Breakfast.

These days he earns a living DJ-ing at clubs around New York.

Macaulay Culkin’s half sister Jennifer Adamson died of a drug overdose in 2000.

In 2004, Macaulay Culkin he was arrested on suspicion of marijuana and two controlled substances – Alprazolam and Clonazepam – eventually pleading guilty to misdemeanor drug offences. He was slapped with three one-year suspended prison terms.

Tom Cruise’s lawyer has threatened the National Enquirer with a multimillion-dollar lawsuit over a new issue asserting it has details of the actor’s recent split with wife Katie Holmes, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The website posted a letter from Tom Cruise’s Los Angeles attorney, Bert Fields, in which he blasts American Media Inc, parent of the National Enquirer, for what he calls “false and vicious lies”.

Bert Fields went on to add that the “lies” will cause “hundreds of millions of dollars” in damages to Tom Cruise.

“As you were notified in advance, your current issue of National Enquirer makes numerous false and defamatory assertions about our client Tom Cruise,” the three-page letter begins.

Tom Cruise's lawyer has threatened the National Enquirer with a multimillion-dollar lawsuit over a new issue asserting it has details of the actor's recent split with Katie Holmes

The letter draws attention to disparaging descriptions of Tom Cruise in the Enquirer‘s issue that hit newsstands on Wednesday.

Bert Fields wrote: “These are all lies – vicious, hurtful, damaging lies.”

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have been the subject of hundreds of headlines worldwide since she filed for divorce from the actor two weeks ago, seeking sole custody of their six-year-old daughter, Suri.

Earlier this week, the couple agreed to a divorce and custody arrangement, but details were undisclosed.

Both have remained publicly silent about the issue, except for one joint statement in which they said they were working together to settle their differences in the best interest of Suri.

Speculation about a reason for the split has centered on Tom Cruise’s membership in the Church of Scientology, but that has never been confirmed by either the couple or their representatives.

Just a week after John Travolta’s former pilot Doug Gotterba claimed they had a six-year affair in the Eighties, Gotterba is now “considering’” writing a tell-all book.

Reports that Doug Gotterba, 60, has two writers lined up to help tell his story appear in today’s edition of The National Enquirer.

Last week, the National Enquirer reported that pilot Doug Gotterba told John Travolta’s former secretary Joan Edwards about the secret affair.

Joan Edwards confirmed that Doug Gotterba began working for John Travolta in 1981.

“He told me that John was gay and they had a sexual relationship,” said Joan Edwards.

John Travolta is said to have had a long-term relationship with Doug Gotterba in the Eighties – before the actor’s marriage to Kelly Preston in 1991.

The simmering scandal heated up last month, when John Travolta was hit with two lawsuits from masseurs claiming the actor made sexual advances towards them during massages – but one claim was later withdrawn.

A string of other people came out of the woodwork making similar claims.

John Travolta’s legal team strenuously denied the allegations at the time.

In public, John Travolta, 58, has been putting on a brave face.

The actor took to the stage a week ago to help honor actress Shirley MacLaine as she received the 40th AFI Life Achievement Award.

The actor was perfectly composed and smiled throughout his speech, which he made in front of celebrity guests and work colleagues, including Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, Katherine Heigl and Meryl Streep.

Charlotte Sarkozy, the ex-wife of Olivier Sarkozy, has spoken out about his relationship with Mary-Kate Olsen, branding the pair as “grotesque”.

Speaking to the National Enquirer about their blooming relationship Charlotte Sarkozy said: “That’s not right. It’s grotesque.”

Mary-Kate Olsen is 17 years junior to Olivier Sarkozy, but they are said to be “head over heels” after being spotted cuddling up to each other at Madison Square Gardens on April 25.

An insider also told the National Enquirer: “Charlotte certainly won’t want her kids to be around Mary-Kate, who has a history of wild-partying and booze binges.”

Charlotte Sarkozy, the ex-wife of Olivier Sarkozy, has spoken out about his relationship with Mary-Kate Olsen, branding the pair as “grotesque”.

Charlotte and Olivier Sarkozy have two children together.

Charlotte – a children’s book author – married the former French president’s half brother in 1997 and divorced him around 13 years later. He has previously been linked to actress Stella Schabnel, 29.

When the unlikely couple was first snapped at the New York Knicks game at the end of April, Olivier Sarkozy – an investment banker – was seen stroking Mary Kate Olsen’s hair and whispering in her ear.

They are also said to have enjoyed a break together in the Hamptons recently.

The asset manager further stirs up the eclectic mix of Mary-Kate Olsen’s boyfriends, who have included artists, actors and shipping heirs.

Mary Kate Olsen has also dated New York artist Nate Lowman for two years before their split in 2010.

She has also hinted at how breaking up with her one-time boyfriend, Greek shipping heir Stavros Niarchos led to her drop out of NYU in 2005.

Mary-Kate Olsen has also been linked to shoe designer Seth Campbell and the late actor Heath Ledger before his death in 2008.

News of her blossoming love life comes as business also appears to be doing well. Along with twin sister Ashley, Mary-Kate Olsen was recently listed in a list of the fashion’s top 30 names under 30.

A new report has claimed that John Travolta had a six year gay affair with his pilot Doug Gotterba.

John Travolta is said to have had a long-term relationship with Doug Gotterba in the ‘80, before the actor’s marriage to Kelly Preston in 1991.

The claims are made in the new issue of the National Enquirer – by Doug Gotterba’s ex-boyfriend and John Travolta’s former secretary.

Doug Gotterba – now 60 – is not quoted in the article – but the publication claims he did confirm he worked for John Travolta “for six years in the 1980s”.

John Travolta’s one-time secretary Joan Edwards – who worked for the star from 1978 to 1994 – told the National Enquirer: “Of course I knew he [John Travolta] was gay. It never bothered me.”

Joan Edwards goes on to reveal that she knew Doug Gotterba – detailing how he started working for John Travolta, 58, in 1981. She adds that she is still good friends with Doug Gotterba.

The tabloid then quotes Doug Gotterba’s ex-boyfriend Robert Britz in the article – who the pilot had a relationship with post-Travolta.

Robert Britz makes a string of claims about John Travolta and Doug Gotterba, saying: “Doug told me right at the beginning of our relationship that he’d had a homosexual relationship with John Travolta in the 1980s.”

He goes on to detail how:

• Doug Gotterba showed him a home video of John Travolta with his shirt off

• Says Doug Gotterba would chauffeur the actor to gay sex stores

• Claims Doug Gotterba told him it was “lucrative” to work for John Travolta

Five years into the relationship, Doug Gotterba began to tire of John Travolta, apparently becoming repulsed by his habits, according to Robert Britz.

“Doug said that he hated sleeping with John because his body was very hairy and he didn’t like they way John smelled,” Robert Britz claims.

He went on: “John would also become very heavy between movies. Doug called him <<huge>> and said it turned him off.”

“After a few years, Doug grew apart from John sexually, and John’s advances eventually started to repulse him,” Robert Britz said.

He added: “The relationship ended shortly thereafter.”

The Enquirer claims John Travolta went to great lengths to cover up his fling and used actress Brooke Shields – who was just 16 at the time – as a smokescreen by going on a few dates with her in public.

In his 1997 biography, John Travolta: Back In Character, author Wensley Clarkson says the dates with Brooke Shields were set up by their agents.

Doug Gotterba, 60, is the owner of a private jet company near Santa Barbara, California.

John Travolta was hit with two lawsuits last month from masseurs claiming the actor made sexual advances towards them during massages – but one claim was later withdrawn.

A string of other people came out of the woodwork making similar claims.

John Travolta’s legal team strenuously denied the allegations at the time.

The National Enquirer has published cross-dressing photos of John Travolta after he has been accused of sexually assaulting male masseurs.

John Travolta, 58, appears in full drag – and the pictures, published in today’s National Enquirer, are allegedly not for a film role.

In the snaps, John Travolta is wearing a white dress, brown belt, fur stole, earrings and a necklace.

A bra is even visible beneath the knit frock.

The actor also wears a face full of makeup, including thick black eyeliner and pearly pink lipstick as well as a blonde wig pulled back into a ponytail.

The photos were obtained by The National Enquirer from a party in Los Angeles that John Travolta attended in 1997, just six years after marrying Kelly Preston.

In another bitter twist of fate, the magazine claims that his wife of over twenty years has left him in the wake of his cross-dressing scandal.

 A friend of Kelly Preston says: “Kelly told me their marriage is over and made it clear that she’s no longer living in the family home.

“She’s put up with John’s double life for decades while his behavior remained in the shadows.

“But all this coming out in public has humiliated her. Kelly is absolutely destroyed.”

No doubt his children, Ella, 12, and Benjamin, 18 months, will be affected by this recent scandal.

John Travolta is certainly no stranger to dressing up in drag.

He wore women’s clothing on the big screen as Edna Turnblad in the 2007 silver screen adaptation of Broadway musical Hairspray.

Though his tongue-in-cheek role had many laughing, this current photo scandal is certainly no laughing matter in the wake of recent reports that he sexually assaulted male masseurs.

The New York Daily News reported today that one of the two accusers was offered $125,000 by Team Travolta to keep his mouth shut.

Though John Travolta’s lawyer, Marty Singer, calls the claims “completely false”, John Truesdale is firmly standing by his story.

The former US Army medic reportedly turned down the offer and hired celebrity crisis lawyer Gloria Allred.

However, the 40-year-old black belt withdrew his $2 million federal lawsuit last week, as did the other accuser, who has not been identified and is referred to simply as “John Doe No. 1”.

John Truesdale’s innocence was called into question on Tuesday when his name was called into question in an unfavorable way.

RadarOnline reported that he was fired from a North Carolina massage job eight years ago for being “sexually inappropriate” with clients and co-workers.

It was he who reported claims of misconduct on May 8 when he said that John Travolta touched him inappropriately at the Beverly Hills Hotel on January 16.

For his part, flight records and photos have placed John Travolta 3,000 miles away from the alleged incident in California.

John Trousdale claims he got the dates wrong.

 

As Whitney Houston’s silver casket was carried out of the New Hope Baptist Church, her unforgettable voice could be heard singing her greatest hit I Will Always Love You, reducing many mourners to tears, as the star made her final journey before being laid to rest.

The singer’s mother Cissy Houston followed right behind the casket and had to be supported by two helpers as she tearfully watched her only daughter’s coffin being taken out. Bobbi Kristina followed closely behind.

Whitney Houston will be laid to rest tomorrow alongside her father John Russell Houston Jr.

Among the mourners at today’s highly-charged service, were singers Chaka Khan, Brandy, Roberta Flack, Jordin Sparks and Jennifer Hudson. Singer Ray J, who spent time with Houston during her last days, broke down crying before the service had even begun.

Cissy Houston and daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown were in the front row, both in black, both with heads bowed in grief.

Whitney Houston’s ex-husband Bobby Brown was seen storming out of the church shortly before the service began. He was driven away from the funeral but later returned in time for the start of the going-home service.

TMZ reported that Bobby Brown got into an argument with Whitney Houston’s family over whether or not he could bring nine people into the church with him. Bobby Brown was invited and told he could bring two people but instead showed up with an entourage of nine.

Bobby Brown reportedly became upset when he was told his party could not be seated. He was also refused to sit beside his daughter Bobbi Kristina in the front row.

In a statement put out by his representative after the funeral ended, Bobby Brown explained: “My children and I were invited to the funeral of my ex-wife Whitney Houston. We were seated by security and then subsequently asked to move on three separate occasions.

“I fail to understand why security treated my family this way and continue to ask us and no one else to move. Security then prevented me from attempting to see my daughter Bobbi-Kristina. In light of the events, I gave a kiss to the casket of my ex-wife and departed as I refused to create a scene.

“My children are completely distraught over the events. This was a day to honor Whitney. I doubt Whitney would have wanted this to occur. I will continue to pay my respects to my ex-wife the best way I know how.”
