Thursday gossip roundup: Chris Brown and Drake got in a fight

Brown added an image of his busted chin to his Instagram account — and then deleted it.

R&B singers — and Rihanna exes — Chris Brown and Drake reportedly came to blows a New York City nightclub early Thursday morning, according to TMZ. Bottles were reportedly thrown as their entourages clashed, and a photo was posted to Brown’s Instagram profile showing a bloody gash on the singer’s chin — though the image was quickly removed. Five people were reportedly injured in the brawl, and while police were called, neither Brown nor Drake was present when they arrived. There have been no arrests made in connection to the altercation.

In possibly the most amicable split in Hollywood history, Courteney Cox reportedly filed her divorce paper the same day as soon-to-be ex-husband David Arquette, also citing irreconcilable differences, according to TMZ. Like Arquette, Cox is seeking joint custody of their daughter and no spousal support, and she will represent herself in the proceedings. The biggest discovery is that the couple, married for 11 years before separating in 2010, did not have a prenup, so all of their community property will be divided equally. Cox is worth a reported $75 million, while Arquette is said to be worth $18 million.

Jake Gyllenhaal is nothing if not persistent. Though Minka Kelly reportedly turned him down flat when he asked her out last fall, the pair apparently did eventually go out a few times recently, according to Us Weekly. “Minka wasn’t into Jake when he first pursued her,” a source says, explaining that the actress “decided to give Jake another chance” after her romance with Wilmer Valderrama fizzled out. But it looks like things between Gyllenhaal and Kelly didn’t last, either: “It was never serious, and it’s over now,” the source says.

Alec Baldwin and fiancé Hilaria Thomas have reportedly set the date of June 30 for their wedding, according to the New York Post. “This wasn’t a quick decision. It took a lot of planning,” a source says. The ceremony will reportedly be a full Catholic wedding at the Bascilla of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in downtown New York. Baldwin is allowed to get married in the church this time because his first marriage — to Kim Basinger in 1993 — didn’t take place in a house of worship. The pair were married on a beach in the Hamptons.

Always the romantic, Russell Brand says the hardest part of divorcing Katy Perry has been all the paperwork. “I suppose a divorce is difficult, isn’t it? Because of the admin. There’s a lot of admin,” he tells the Mirror. Still, his 14-month marriage wasn’t all bad: “Well, it did work out in a way because you are married for some time, and that’s really good, and then you’re not married, and that’s really good. You just have to have acceptance of things,” Brand says. So how does he find this acceptance so easily? “I don’t want to sound like a lunatic, but if you meditate and do yoga you become attuned to that there is different energy that’s constant and very, very beautiful,” he insists. “Some people would call it God, some people would call it karma or the cosmos. Me, I call it sexual charisma.”

Scarlett Johansson gets a lot of attention for her beauty, but it’s not something she’s exactly thrilled about. “I don’t like being labelled as ‘the sexiest woman alive.’ As an actress I prefer to maintain the anonymity,” Johansson says in an interview with Grazia Italia. And as for being a role model for other women? She’d rather not. “There are so many wonderful women out there,” Johansson says.

It’s been a rough week for Lindsay Lohan, what with crashing her Porsche and allegedly lying to police about whether or not she was behind the wheel. And her dad, Michael Lohan, thinks everyone is ganging up on her unfairly. “Why doesn’t the press emphasize that she went through an extremely traumatic accident that could have been fatal, but she still wants to prove herself and went back to work even against medical advice?” Michael tells Hollyscoop. As to how Lindsay is recovering, Michael says she is “still in some pain but really well otherwise.”
