Tuesday gossip roundup: Naked Prince Harry video could soon surface
Prince Harry‘s headaches over his naked romp in Las Vegas earlier this month may not be over, as Radar Online is reporting that a video of the incident could end up online shortly — for the right price. “There is video of Harry partying naked with women in the Las Vegas hotel room. There have been some very quiet inquiries to see how much the video is worth,” a source says. “The video has not been shopped around yet. With all the attention the photos got, the people with the video know it could be worth a fortune.”
Lindsay Lohan and her assistant, Gavin Doyle, are reportedly being investigated by police in connection to $100,000 worth of watches and sunglasses missing from the home of Sam Magid, according to TMZ. Police are said to be considering Lohan and Doyle formal suspects in the case, and detectives reportedly contacted their lawyers requesting an interview recently but were turned down. While Magid has actually recanted his story and now says nothing was stolen, the LAPD is still reportedly moving ahead with the investigation.
A month after finalizing his divorce from American pop star Katy Perry, British comedian Russell Brand is apparently sticking closer to home. Brand is reportedly dating Spice Girls member Geri Halliwell, according to the Sun. Brand and Halliwell, who hung out during the Olympics Closing Ceremony earlier this month, were recently spotted out and about at Hampton Court Palace along with Halliwell’s 6-year-old daughter. Halliwell, for her part, admits there’s a new special someone in her life — but she’s leaving it at that. “I’m not going into details,” she tells Hello! Magazine. “Right now there’s nothing serious.”
Amanda Bynes‘ most recent hit-and-run incident has led investigators to renew their interest in a similar accident involving the actress from earlier this year, according to Hollyscoop. “Both of Amanda Bynes’ hit and run cases are under review right now. I cannot say that we re-opened the original hit-and-run case because it was never closed,” a spokesman for the L.A. City Attorney’s office tells the Web site. “We are reviewing both cases with the LAPD and CHP, so both incidents are under investigation at this time. She has not been charged with anything as of yet. No dates have been set for arraignment or anything else with Amanda at this time.” Both incidents — one in April and one in August — involve Bynes reportedly rear-ending another driver and then fleeing the scene.
While Mariah Carey‘s reported $18 million payday for joining “American Idol” is impressive, the show was apparently willing to go even higher to snag Katy Perry, according to Us Weekly. The reality competition reportedly offered Perry $20 million to become a judge for its 12th season — following the departure of Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler — but she turned them down. “Katy was being hotly pursued, ” a source says. “They really wanted her.”
