Wednesday gossip roundup: Is model Baptiste Giabiconi Katy Perry’s boyfriend?

Katy Perry interacts with fans in London, England.

 Lindsay Lohan isn’t taking her latest legal attack lying down. A woman has accused he troubled actress of attacking her in a nightclub last week, and now Lohan wants police to investigate the accuser and arrest her for filing a false police report, according to TMZ. “If it”s true that someone made false accusations against Ms. Lohan and reported those false claims to police, we will take appropriate action, which includes seeking the prosecution of that individual,” Lohan’s attorney tells the Web site.

Seal is striking back at Heidi Klum, reportedly disputing her divorce petition, according to TMZ. The main issues he takes with her filing? Seal insists there are “community and quasi-community assets” that need to be divided up, while Klum claims a postnuptial agreement addresses that. In addition, Klum cites January 19 as the official start of their separation, while Seal says the date hasn’t been determined. Seal is also asking for joint physical custody of their children instead of Klum’s proposed full physical custody. “Given that he’s away a lot on tour, giving her primary physical custody is pretty much status quo,” the source says. And both parties are reportedly asking to deny spousal support to the other. Klum is worth an estimated $70 million, while Seal is worth $15 million.

With a 1-year-old son at home, Penelope Cruz is starting to consider cutting back on her career for the sake of motherhood. “Maybe I’ll make one movie a year, maybe two, but it’s not going to be more than that because I have other priorities now,” Cruz tells Harper’s Bazaar. “I talk about him all day long, even to strangers in the street. It is my favorite subject! But, you know, this is my job.” Cruz and husband Javiar Bardem welcomed son Leonardo last year.

Baptiste Giabiconi
, the model who is rumored to be dating Katy Perry, can’t stop gushing about the newly single popstar. “I think the world of Katy,” Giabiconi tells Grazia magazine. “Not only is she beautiful, but she’s also extremely intelligent and super-talented. I have always had a big crush on Katy. She is an amazing girl. She is everything a man would want.” But that doesn’t mean the dating rumors are true, necessarily: “We’re just friends,” he insists.

Kevin Costner reveals there were plans for a sequel to “the Bodyguard” — with Princess Diana interested in starring as herself. “Diana and I had been talking about doing ‘Bodyguard 2,’” Costner tells Anderson Cooper in an interview set to air next month. “I told her I would take care of her just the same way that I took care of Whitney [Houston].” And though the late Princess had no professional acting experience, Costner was eager to work with her. “She wanted me to write it for her. I said ‘I’ll tailor it for you if you’re interested.’ She goes, ‘I am interested,’” Costner remembers, revealing that he received a draft of the script the day before Diana lost her life in 1997.

Bobbi Kristina Brown
, the daughter of late singer Whitney Houston, has reportedly made a verbal deal to star in a reality TV series, according to Radar Online. “This show is being done against her family”s advice,” a source says. Brown, who is reportedly dealing with her own substance-abuse issues, “obviously very wild and misguided,” the source adds. “Bobbi is scared the world will label her just like her mother.”
