Monday gossip roundup: Jack Osbourne has multiple sclerosis

Jack Osbourne attends the Cops 4 Causes annual Fallen Heroes benefit at Avalon on December 14.

There’s been at least one casualty in the wake of the bar brawl between Drake and Chris Brown: W.iP., the New York nightclub where the fight took place last week, has been shut down by police over multiple code violations, though authorities wouldn’t elaborate as to what those violations are, according to the Associated Press. Also, more details are emerging about the massive brawl, and sources now say that Brown and Drake never confronted each other directly. “Chris and Drake never got in each other’s faces,” a source says. “It was entourage versus entourage, never Drake versus Chris.”

Lindsay Lohan must bounce back quickly. After being treated for exhaustion Friday — brought on by her hectic filming schedule — the troubled actress was out Saturday night partying at the Chateau Marmont, according to Us Weekly. “For someone so exhausted, it was shocking to see her out past 1 a.m.,” a source says. Lohan, who was reportedly still in air and makeup from the Elizabeth Taylor biopic she’s filming, stayed until the hotel’s restaurant cleared out for the night.

Despite her ongoing troubles, Lindsay Lohan at least has a friend in Woody Allen, with whom she was spotted having a dinner meeting in New York last month. “I wouldn’t hesitate to use her in a movie because she’s a very talented girl,” Allen tells Access Hollywood. “If there was some legal reason I couldn’t [cast her], that would be a different story, but it would not concern me personally, no. I think that she’d be just fine and she’d do a great job.”

Selena Gomez‘s popular “Fifty Shades of Grey” spoof made for humor site Funny or Die is about as close as the former Disney star is going to get to the racy, mega-popular material, according to MTV News. “I know I’m taking risks, but I don’t think I could do that,” Gomez says when asked about starring in the planned movie version of the book. “That would be a little too much for me.”

Jack Osbourne has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, he confirms to People magazine. “I was just angry and frustrated and kept thinking, ‘Why now?’ ” says Osbourne, who welcomed his first child two weeks ago. “I’ve got a family and that’s what’s supposed to be the most important thing.” There’s no word yet on how serious Osbourne’s condition is.

Kate Middleton is usually pretty tight-lipped about life married to Prince William, but she did open up to a group of inner-city youth during a visit to their outdoor learning center, according to Us Weekly. “William is very sweet and kind of spoils me,” Middleton told one of the children. Of course, seeing Middleton working so well with children raises the question of when she and William will start a family of their own, and royal sources say sooner rather than later. “There’s a window in place,” a source says, explaining that the couple is hoping to get pregnant between September and next summer. “The pregnancy will be announced. It won’t be hidden.”
