Stop the presses. The National Enquirer is alleging that Tiger Woods cheated ... while in sex addiction rehab. They may be stretching it a little bit here.
Sure, the entertainment news rag broke the scandal of Tiger's affair with Rachel Uchitel, which in turn led to nearly a dozen other affairs unraveling.
And sure, they also broke the John Edwards-Rielle Hunter scandal, for which some people think they deserve a Pulitzer Prize (seriously, look that up).
But Tiger cheating on Elin Nordegren in sex rehab? Come on.
The only reason he's there is to salvage the marriage she's somehow still committed to. Such an affair would also be fairly hard to pull off logistically.
Nevertheless, a "hostile" Tiger Woods exploded with pent-up rage during sex addiction therapy and treated the program as a joke, The Enquirer says.
Sex Rehab Cheater
Maybe they mean "cheating" as in on an exam of some kind.
He denied he has a problem, says the tabloid's source, and worse yet, ridiculed fellow patients and refused to cooperate with his rehab therapists.
The disgraced golfer even "treated group therapy with such contempt that he caused one female patient to break down in tears," the source claims.
"What a cheat!" the source said. "Tiger's so-called sex rehabilitation is a joke. He went into rehab as a sex addict, and he's leaving rehab as one."
"He has been in complete denial the whole time."
"Tiger isn't about to change his stripes. As soon as Elin takes her eyes off him, he will be hopping into bed with the first bimbo that catches his eye."
As for the alleged cheating that took place there? They don't really elaborate on that, but hey. Details, right? Would we doubt it at this point? (Yes.)
The 25-year anniversary remake of "We Are the World" debuted last night during Winter Olympics coverage on NBC.
The production featured over 80 artists and celebrities, as the video below features the young (Justin Bieber), the high (Snoop Dogg) and the deceased (Michael Jackson sang a posthumous duet with sister Janet, using old footage).
Vince Vaughn even got a solo.
We heard John Mayer was invited, but turned down the appearance because he heard black and gay people might be there.)
As Jamie Foxx says in the introduction, the purpose of the song is to unite people from across the globe and to encourage donations to the victims of the earthquake in Haiti. It's a great cause and we applaud all those involved.

I was hoping that now that the Super Bowl is finally over, we’d stop hearing about Kim Kardashian’s big ass being a good luck charm for the Saints. I guess I can kiss that f@#king idea goodbye now. Anyhow, here she is at one of the many Super Bowl parties in Miami over the weekend letting the fans get a good look at her sweet big ass. Nice.
Dr. Conrad Murray, personal physician to Michael Jackson, has been charged with involuntary manslaughter in connection with the pop star's death last summer.
A criminal complaint filed earlier Monday alleged that Murray "did unlawfully, and without malice, kill Michael Joseph Jackson."
Murray turned himself in shortly before 4 p.m. at a branch courthouse near Los Angeles International Airport. He pleaded not guilty during a hearing before Judge Keith L. Schwartz.
Members of Jackson's family, including his parents, Joe and Katherine and three of his brothers, had arrived at the courthouse before Murray. Asked for his reaction to the charge, brother Jermaine Jackson said, "Not enough."
The involuntary manslaughter charge means that Murray caused Jackson's death by acting "without due caution and circumspection."
If convicted, Murray would face a maximum four-year prison sentence, according to prosecutors.
Deputy District Attorney David Walgren will lead the prosecution.
Murray traveled to Los Angeles at the end of January from his home in Houston, Texas, in expectation of possible charges, his lawyer said.
He used part of his time last week to visit the pop star's resting place in the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California.
Murray, a cardiologist, was hired as Jackson's personal physician last spring as the singer prepared for comeback concerts in London, England.
The doctor told Los Angeles police that he was with Jackson at his $100,000-a-month rented Holmby Hills mansion through the early morning hours of June 25, 2009, in an effort to help the pop star fall asleep, according to a police affidavit.
He administered sleep aids, and after Jackson finally began sleeping in the late morning hours, Murray said, he left the bedroom for "about two minutes maximum," the affidavit says.
"Upon his return, Murray noticed that Jackson was no longer breathing," it says.
The doctor stayed with Jackson as an ambulance rushed him to UCLA Medical Center.
Efforts at CPR proved fruitless, and Jackson was pronounced dead at 2:26 p.m.
The Los Angeles County coroner ruled Jackson's death a homicide, resulting from a combination of drugs, primarily propofol and lorazepam.
The coroner's statement said Jackson died from "acute propofol intoxication," but there were "other conditions contributing to death: benzodiazepine effect." Lorazepam and two other drugs Murray said he used are benzodiazepines.
The doctor told investigators he had given Jackson three anti-anxiety drugs to help him sleep in the hours before he stopped breathing, a police affidavit said.
Murray had been treating Jackson for insomnia for six weeks at the time of the singer's death. The doctor told investigators he gave Jackson 50 milligrams of propofol, the generic name for Diprivan, diluted with the anesthetic lidocaine every night via an intravenous drip.
The doctor told police he was worried that Jackson was becoming addicted to the drug and tried to wean him off it.
During the two nights before Jackson's death, Murray said, he put together combinations of other drugs that succeeded in helping Jackson sleep.
Two young movie stars were the highest paid actors in 2009, according to Hollywood Top 40 list — featured in the March issue of Vanity Fair.
Emma Watson is only 19, but thanks to her promising acting career and lucrative modeling gigs, the college freshmen was the highest-earning actress of 2009. Emma raked in $30 million after starring in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts I and II last year.
She was placed No. 14 on the Top 40, behind a number of film producers and directors, and fellow actresses like Cameron Diaz, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Angelina Jolie.
Emma’s Harry Potter co-star Daniel Radcliffe is even richer than she is. The spectacled star scored $41 million last year, which made him the highest-earning male actor of 2009 – beating out older actors like Tom Hanks and Ben Stiller — not bad for a 20-year-old!
How much do you think they’re paying the third Potter Kid, Rupert Grint?
Everywhere she goes she sells out shows, and last night (February 7) Beyonce Knowles was spotted working the stage in Rio de Janiero, Brazil.
The “Bootylicious” babe looked to be in fine form as she gave a concert at the HSBC Arena in Barra da Tijuca, sporting a sexy gold getup.
Last week, Ms. Knowles had a near-disaster while performing in Florianopolis, Brazil when she slipped while dancing onstage. Luckily she caught herself and didn’t fall into the crowd.
After her mishap, Beyonce begged the audience not to post the video on YouTube, but inevitably it has been floating around the internet nonetheless.
It’s no secret that they had quite the tumultuous relationship, and now rumor has it that Lindsay Lohan suffered abuse at the hands of ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson.
According to a report, the “Mean Girls” actress secretly told a pal about the domestic violence in the relationship, accompanied by physical proof.
An inside source explained, “One time I saw her [Lindsay] and she had a large welt on her head. She told me that Sam beat the (bleep) out of her. She also said that Sam even punched and choked her one time.”
True to form, an inebriated LiLo threw a drink in Sam’s face while out at a Los Angeles club last week.
Amidst utterly contrived rumors that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are breaking up - with the former pursuing Jennifer Aniston, and the latter going after Johnny Depp - the couple brought son Maddox to Super Bowl XLIV. They don't exactly look like a family in trouble, do they?
Pitt and Jolie, who reside in New Orleans and have dedicated time/money to the rebuilding efforts there, joined friends in a VIP box to watch the game. They celebrated together as the Saints upset the Colts 31-17.
Kid Rock's got a bad reputation and he knows it -- which is why he wants to put the kibosh on any mention of his previous bad behavior during his current court case.
Rock filed documents in L.A. County Superior Court on Friday in connection to a lawsuit filed against him by three guys who claim Rock and six members of the Boo-Yaa Tribe beat the hell out of them at the Roosevelt Hotel back in 2006.
In the documents, Rock -- real name Robert Ritchie -- asks that his "reputation as a 'tough guy' or 'thug' by means of his professional persona as 'Kid Rock'" not be used against him during the case.
Rock also wants no mention of his "prior criminal arrest or misdemeanor convictions" during the case as well ... calling them irrelevant and prejudicial.
We'll see how that goes.
Dr. Conrad Murray has just been charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.
Dr. Murray will be arraigned today at 1:30 PM. As we first reported, he will plead not guilty.
Dr. Murray is expected to show up at around 1:00 PM, accompanied by his lawyers and a bail bondsman. Bail should be set at $25,000.
Dr. Murray administered Propofol to Jackson just before he died, and the L.A. County Coroner's Office has determined Jackson died as a result of acute Propofol intoxication.
If convicted, Dr. Murray faces a maximum of 4 years in prison.
Based on her latest actions, we have nothing but positive things to say about Miley Cyrus.
The singer/actress has recruited famous friends for an online auction to benefit victims of last month's earthquake in Haiti.
"Ever since the earthquake, I've been trying to do my part to help the people of Haiti – and I wanted to do more," Cyrus told People. "I want to get people involved and show that even the little things you can do can make a difference."
Starting February 8, you can visit Ebay.com/Miley to bid on the Herve Leger dress the singer wore to the Grammy Awards, along with two tickets to the Hollywood premiere of The Last Song.
Meanwhile, Nicole Richie has donated jewelry, while Britney Spears has handed over the outfit she wore to the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards.
"Everyone has been so generous," Miley said. "My mom and I started calling and texting all of our friends to see if they’d like to be a part of the auction. Demi [Lovato] was one of the first to respond. Hugh Jackman was also excited to donate something."
All proceeds will go to the American Red Cross.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie hit up the Super Bowl yesterday -- where they appeared tighter than a spiral from Drew Brees.
The couple -- who have been subject to a ton of breakup rumors lately -- were all over each other in a private box at the game in Miami.
Here’s Jennifer Aniston in a bikini vacationing in Cabo in the wake of her 41 birthday. As you can see once again she has attempted the “Jessica Alba Bikini Ass Pose” and once again she has failed. When are these chicks going to learn how to do it right? Sure Jen’s body is smokin’ but maybe she needs to learn a few yoga moves to improve her technique.
Here’s George Clooney’s Italian girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis. She’s a bit of a butterface, but the rest of her I wouldn’t mind lathering up with butter… Girl got a tight body!
You might not know who Elisabetta Gregoraci is, but it’s not hard to see by what’s written on her bikini, that she’s a money hungry whore. Yes, that says “Billionaire” and yes she’s married to that old dude Flavio Briatore, managing director of Renault Formula One team and joint owner of London’s Queens Park Rangers F.C. Not sure if he’s actually a “Billionaire”, but the guy is filthy rich and managed to pick up this young skank to feed his ego.
