She was throwing herself at him. He wasn’t interested”. Irina's representative says, 'This story is completely false. It is a totally malicious and fictional account of the evening
Geo TV says George Clooney's friends and acquaintances are allegedly concerned about how frail he looks. A source tells the website, "People were commenting on how thin George has gotten. His friends worry he's not taking proper care of himself. He doesn't work out and has no muscle to brag about. He must feel a lot of pressure to maintain his weight and keep up with Amal since they make a lot of glam appearances together. The consensus is he needs to bulk up more.

The NY Post says Britney Spears' ex-husband, Kevin Federline, and her estranged father, Jamie, have allegedly told the Daily Mail that she may be abusing drugs. The paper quotes Kevin as saying, “I fear she’s on meth — I’ve been praying someone would make it public and that she wakes up. It’s terrifying. She is the mother of my boys. Every time the telephone rings, I fear that there will be devastating news. I don’t want the boys to wake up one morning and find their mother has taken an overdose.'' Jamie is quoted as saying, “Britney may die like Amy (Winehouse).''
Britney posted, “The fact that people are claiming things that are not true is so sad. This may not even be them saying such things because it doesn’t make any sense to me for them to be saying that. It makes me sad because I tried so hard to make things nice for you and it was never good enough. So you guys go behind my back and talk about me … it breaks my heart and the news is so low … l’ve always felt like the news bullies me … It’s sad because everyone sits back as if that’s ok to make up lies to that extent,” Spears continued. “Hopefully it is just the news being hateful and Kevin nor Preston said any of those things.”
Britney's attorney, Matthew Rosengart, says, “The Daily Mail, through Daphne Barak, posted a story yesterday containing numerous false and defamatory fabrications concerning my client Britney Spears that are attributed to Kevin Federline and his children, in particular regarding ‘crystal meth'. Britney’s representatives were never contacted prior to the publication of the story, further demonstrating actual malice and reckless disregard for the truth. Britney is indeed a public figure, but this conduct is beyond the pale and completely unacceptable. It is shoddy even by today’s standards of ‘journalism’ and the unfair scrutiny she has faced.”
Kevin Federline is denying the quotes attributed to him and says, “It saddens our family that Daphne Barak and Erbil Gunasti have decided to fabricate lies and publish the heart ache our family has endured, along with the trauma of our minor children in the Daily Mail and The Sun.''

My husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary this past weekend. He came home with a dozen roses on Friday night. We got into an argument when I saw the price tag on the side of the packaging. It revealed the flowers came from a gas station. Ten years of being together and the best you can do is gas station flowers? This sparked a fight between us. I told my husband that I was disappointed he didn't put more effort into a gift and the weekend. He says I am wrong for being upset and that it doesn't matter where the flowers came from? Is he right?
