Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel tied the knot in Italy Friday, catching the paparazzi off-guard by having the wedding days earlier than expected, according to People magazine. “It’s great to be married. The ceremony was beautiful and it was so special to be surrounded by our family and friends,” the couple says in a statement. The newlyweds have been celebrating in southern Italy with friends all week but managed to keep details of the actual ceremony a secret.

Adele
has given birth to a baby boy, according to Sunday Mirror. The singer and boyfriend Simon Konecki welcomed the tot last week. “Adele and Simon are ecstatic at their new arrival. She was over the moon that they were expecting their first child together,” a source tells the newspaper. The birth comes just four months after the “Rolling in the Deep” singer announced she was pregnant.

Lindsay Lohan apparently can’t win with either of her parents. The actress, whose recent argument with her mom led to police intervention, reportedly called the police on dad Michael Lohan, who had turned up at her Beverly Hills home with a group of friends to stage an intervention, according to TMZ. Michael told the Web site that his daughter is in need of treatment and has been surrounding herself with “a bunch of alcoholics and drug addicts.” Police arrived in response to a complaint that Michael and his posse were trespassing, and they soon dispersed.

There’s some new insight into why Katy Perry keeps sticking with on-again, off-again beau John Mayer, according to Us Weekly. Apparently the pop star “believes she can change him,” sources say. “She doesn’t want to be just another one of his conquests.” Her latest strategy — which may explain all the breaking up and making up rumors — is reportedly to play hard-to-get. “She recently told John she was open to see other people,” the source says. “Once Katy turned her back on him, he started chasing her again.”

First Ashton Kutcher replaced Charlie Sheen on “Two and a Half Men,” and now he’s replaced the notorious bad boy at the top of Forbes magazine’s list of highest paid TV actors. Kutcher reportedly earned $24 million between May 2011 and May 2012. Sheen, who held the top spot last year with $40 million, didn’t even make the list this year. Hugh Laurie and Ray Romano share second place at $18 million, while Alec Baldwin and Mark Harmon hold fourth, each earning around $15 million.
