Tuesday gossip roundup: Don’t call Robert Pattinson ‘R-Patz’

Actor Robert Pattinson attends the Toronto Premiere of "Cosmopolis" at TIFF Bell Lightbox on June 4.

Lindsay Lohan‘s penchant for lying could land her in jail again. After her accident last week — during which she totaled a rented Porsche — Lohan initially told police that she had been a passenger and her assistant had been driving, despite her assistant telling them the opposite, according to TMZ. Police are said to be writing up a report that includes Lohan’s fabrication, which is in itself a crime and could trigger a probation violation for the actress in her shoplifting case.

After three months of dating, Zac Efron and “Mirror Mirror” star Lily Collins have called it quits, according to Us Weekly. “They’re no longer together. They were never serious, though; it was just a casual thing and it fizzled,” a source says. “They were never in the same place at the same time.” Perhaps a sign that the relationship didn’t have legs was the fact that during those times apart, Efron didn’t make much mention of Collins. “Zac was never very serious about her. He didn’t talk about her to friends,” another source says.

George Clooney kicked off his summer vacation early by taking girlfriend Stacey Keibler to his luxurious estate on Lake Como, Italy, according to Hollyscoop. Surprisingly, it’s the first time his girlfriend of 10 months has been to the infamous vacation home. On the other hand, Clooney has taken Keibler on trips to Mexico five times since they’ve been together. The couple returned from a trip to Cabo San Lucas just last week.

Robert Pattinson may be a good sport about a lot of things, but he is not a fan of his R-Patz nickname, to put it mildly. “When I got [the role in 'Cosmopolis'], every single article that came out was, ‘R-Patz’s struggle for credibility,’” Pattinson tells the Guardian. “I don’t understand who invented that thing, ‘R-Patz. I want to strangle them.”

Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough have courted engagement rumors in the past, but is a trip down the aisle really in their future? Julianne’ brother, Derek Hough, sure seems to think so. “Yeah of course,” Derek tells Hollyscoop. “Listen, if people are in love and they are happy then the next step is marriage, so why not? I will be the ring bearer.”

While Miley Cyrus is happily celebrating her engagement to Liam Hemsworth, things aren’t so sunny for her brother, musician Trace Cyrus. Trace and fiancée Brenda Strong have called off their engagement and ended their relationship, according to People magazine. “Brenda and I have decided to go our separate ways,” Trace says in a statement. “We split up a couple of months ago. We will continue to focus on our careers. I wish Brenda the best and much success in the future.”
