Lindsay Lohan was reportedly questioned by police after jewelry went missing from a Hollywood Hills home where the troubled actress had spent the night, according to TMZ. Lohan was reportedly among several guests who stayed overnight after a small party at the home Sunday night. The next morning, the house’s owner claimed expensive jewelry had been stolen and called the police. Sources says Lohan was very cooperative with police but maintained that she had nothing to do with any theft.

Prince Harry is reportedly in hot water with the royal family after naked photos of him partying in Las Vegas hit the Internet. “This is a mess. This was not the type of fun he was supposed to be having. He’s in trouble,” a source tells Us Weekly. “Protection officers are also in trouble because they could have controlled this.” As news of the revealing photos — taken after Harry reportedly engaged in a game of “strip billiards” — spread, it didn’t take long for his family to find out. “[Prince] William was told about the photos this morning,” a source says. “He’s not impressed.”

Tom Cruise’s five-year marriage to Katie Holmes is officially over after a New York judge signed off on the divorce settlement earlier this week, according to E! News. Completed in a remarkably short amount of time, the finalization comes just a month and a half after Holmes initially filed for divorce from Cruise. “Tom is very happy and relieved that he is moving forward,” a source says. “His priority is being a good father, and this settlement will make sure that continues.”

Avril Lavigne and Nickleback frontman Chad Kroeger are engaged after quietly dating for six months, Lavigne’s rep confirms to People magazine. “A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together,” the rep says. This will be the Canadian singer’s second marriage after splitting from Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley in 2009. Kroeger “makes her so happy,” a source tells the magazine. “Both of their families could not be more excited.”

Jennifer Lopez may be the next music luminary to take up residence in Las Vegas with a long-running show, according to Hollyscoop. The entertainment company Live Nation has reportedly approached Lopez about a long-term engagement, and her rep concedes it’s not out of the question, telling the Web site, “It could very well be possible.”

Amanda Bynes was reportedly involved in yet another car accident, but this time it looks like it wasn’t her fault. According to TMZ, Byne’s rental car was rear-ended by another driver Monday night, though the other driver reportedly claims they did not have enough time to react and avoid a crash after Bynes made a reckless move. “The collision was minor and information was exchanged, therefore, no police report was taken,” a law enforcement official tells the Web site. Bynes was driving a rental car because her BMW is still being repaired from her last fender-bender.
