Tuesday gossip roundup: 50 Cent was in a car accident, but he’s doing fine

Rapper and actor 50 Cent, is interviewed in the WGCI-FM "Coca-Cola Lounge" in Chicago, Illinois on JUNE 21.

Rapper 50 Cent was hospitalized in New York Tuesday after sustaining injuries in a car accident on the Long Island Expressway, according to the New York Daily News. A report on the rappers Web site claims his SUV was read-ended by a Mack truck, causiing it to nearly flip over. 50 Cent “was taken to New York Hospital Queens where he was treated for minor neck and back injuries,” his rep tells the newspaper. “He was released this morning and is doing fine.”

There’s more legal trouble for John Travolta, as a former Royal Caribbean Cruises employee is suing the actor of accusations of improper sexual conduct, according to People magazine. Fabian Zanzi alleges that when he delivered food to Travolta’s cabin during a June 2009 cruise, the actor stripped off a robe, pushed against Zanzi and said, “Take me, I will take care of you, please.” Zanzi says the actor then offered him $12,000 to keep quiet. The federal lawsuit was filed last week in Los Angeles, and Zanzi is seeking unspecified damages for assault and battery and emotional distress.

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis were spotted out at another dinner together, this time hitting up the chic Giorgio Baldi in Los Angeles, according to TMZ. The pair was spotted sneaking out the back door and into the back of a waiting town car, and Kunis was wearing a rather slinky little black dress. But despite the regular dinner dates and a trip out of town together in April, the actress insists that she and Kutcher are just friends.

Channing Tatum is laughing off allegations from two of his former stripping colleagues that he’d stolen their moves for “Magic Mike,” his new film about male exotic dancers. “It’s stripping. I don’t think anybody has copyrighted any of the moves, and if so I’d be shocked,” Tatum tells Hollyscoop. “This movie has nothing factual in it other than I was a 19-year-old kid going into this world. Everything is fictional.”

An innocent-enough Twitter post from Miley Cyrus over the weekend led to an avalanche of speculation that she and fiancé Liam Hemsworth would be tying the knot as soon as this week. “Super lazy Sunday. Can’t wait for next week,” Cyrus posted. But it turns out Cyrus is actually just eager for Hemsworth to visit, as he’s shooting a movie in Louisiana. A source close to the Australian actor says not to expect a wedding anytime soon. Right now they are enjoying being engaged,” the source says. “There is no rush.”

More than six months after her separation from husband Ben Gibbard, it looks like Zooey Deschanel is ready for romance again, as she was spotted at the “Magic Mike” premiere after-party with screenwriter Jamie Linden, according to Us Weekly. “Jamie’s a really nice guy, a says. “He’s funny and a little geeky. He’s into her.” And apparently she’s into him, as the couple held hands for most of the party, sources say.

All five Spice Girls reunited for the first time in four years this week in London to announce “Viva Forever,” a West End musical based on their hit songs. “It’s better than we could ever have imagined,” Melanie “Sporty Spice” Chisholm said during a press conference, while Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham added that the show will “be introducing a whole new generation to Girl Power.” The musical was written by “Absolutely Fabulous” co-creator and star Jennifer Saunders, who jumped at the chance to work with the Spice Girls. “The second I knew this project was up for grabs I rang my agent and said I had to be involved,” Saunders said.
