It looks like there could be some truth to the rumors of a Kanye West sex tape — or two, even — now that lawyers for the rapper have sent out a cease-and-desist letter to multiple media outlets demanding they take down posts featuring a screen shot allegedly from the video, according to AllHipHop.com. “Be advised that the screen shot, as well as the tape from which the screen shot was taken, were illegally obtained and believed to have been stolen from Mr. West’s computer,” West’s attorney writes in the letter. And according to TMZ, there’s a second sex tape featuring the rapper being shopped around. “Both tapes are impressively long. The first is roughly 20 minutes,” source tell the Web site. “The second is more than 40.”

Katy Perry is reportedly completely smitten with John Mayer, and that has those closest to her worried, according to Radar Online. In fact, sources say Perry’s pals are urging her to end it with Mayer before she gets too attached. “Katy’s friends and family haven’t taken to John at all. In fact, they are worried that she is headed for heartbreak,” a source says. “Despite the fiery image Katy likes to present, she’s actually more fragile than that, and when John dumped her a few weeks after they first got together she was devastated. Now that she has invested more feelings in John and has let her guard down, there’s only one way this can end — in disaster.”

So what’s one of the first things Katie Holmes did after splitting with husband Tom Cruise? Reconnect with old friends. Former “Dawson’s Creek” co-star Joshua Jackson confirms that he heard from Holmes recently, he says in an interview on Canada’s “George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight.” Jackson, who was rumored to be linked romantically to Holmes years ago, says they had a “very nice” chat. “Like any old friend, it was like, ‘Oh hi, how are you? What’s going on?’ ‘I had a kid,’” he says. “I was very nice, actually.”

Bradley Cooper and his “the Words” co-star Zoe Saldana are fueling suspicion once again that they’re more than just friends, looking quite cozy after taking in a movie together in Los Angeles over the weekend, according to People magazine. The pair first sparked romance rumors while filming their indie drama and then again in January at the Sundance Film Festival, where they were “being very affectionate.”

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong stunned a Las Vegas audience over the weekend with a guitar-smashing outburst after being told to wrap up his band’s set. Instead, he flew into a rage, smashed his guitar, yelled at the audience and stormed off the stage. Now, it turns out it wasn’t just a simple tantrum, as Armstrong is headed to rehab. “Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong is seeking treatment for substance abuse,” the band’s rep said in a statement Sunday. “Green Day would like everyone to know that their set was not cut short by Clear Channel and to apologize to those they offended at the iHeart Radio Festival in Las Vegas.”
