Wednesday gossip roundup: Lindsay Lohan won’t pay her $46K bill at Chateau Marmont
Like many starlets before her, Lindsay Lohan has made the Chateau Marmont her home this summer, but the famous hotel reportedly wants her out — permanently. According to TMZ, Lohan has refused to settle the $46,350 bill she’s racked up during her stay. “As we have made repeated attempts to resolve this pressing matter over the last few weeks without any resolute, I regret to inform you that we will no longer be able to extend any further credit for you to remain in the hotel,” a letter from hotel management to Lohan — obtained by the Web site — reads. The letter included an itemized list of charges, showing that Lohan has been having a pretty good time: On July 4, she reportedly spent $1,992 at the hotel restaurant and another $685 on room service.
Robert Pattinson is reportedly selling the Los Angeles mansion he shared with Kristen Stewart, according to Us Weekly. The “Twilight” star is looking to unload the property because “he said there are too many memories,” a source says. But while he may be dropping the property, Pattinson isn’t necessarily through with Stewart, despite her infidelity. “Rob doesn’t hate her and he’s not mad,” the source says. “He just doesn’t get why she did it. He loves her and thinks about her constantly.”
While Katie Holmes will reportedly be getting $4.8 million in child support payments until Suri Cruise turns 18, the little girl herself stands to fare much better from her parents’ divorce, according to Radar Online, as Holmes reportedly insisted that Tom Cruise set up a trust fund for Suri as part of the settlement. “Katie wanted the trust fund put in place for Suri so that their daughter will be able to tap into after she turns 18,” a source says. “Katie has absolutely no access to the money and didn’t want to. It’s a sizable trust fund, but Suri won’t be able to fully legally claim it until she is in her 30s. Tom had no problem with the request and planned on doing it for Suri anyway.”
Taylor Swift has spent her summer dating Conor Kennedy, the 18-year-old grandson of Bobby Kennedy, and she’s reportedly so smitten with him that she can’t stand for them to be apart. Swift recently returned to Nashville for work and, barely a week later, flew Kennedy down on a private jet to join her because she “missed Conor so much,” according to Page Six. “He’s been with her ever since, and his family doesn’t know when he’ll be back,” a source says. “Things have become so serious between them so fast that no one in Hyannis Port would be surprised if they eloped.”
Oprah Winfrey has retained her spot atop Forbes magazine’s list of highest paid celebrities, pulling in a reported $165 million between May 2011 and May 2012. That’s $125 million less than she made the previous year, but still enough to help her beat out Michael Bay, who comes in at No. 2 with $160 million. Steven Spielberg is third with $130 million, Jerry Bruckheimer is fourth with $115 million and Dr. Dre rounds out the top five with $110 million.
