Tuesday gossip roundup: No, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper aren’t dating

Oscar-nominees Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence fall for each other in “Silver Linings Playbook,” but Cooper wants to quash any rumors of the recently single stars dating in real life. “I love her to death. She’s amazing, but no,” Cooper tells Entertainment Tonight about the prospect of him and Lawrence together. “No, no, no, no, no. Not even close. First of all, I could be her father. No, I’m kidding. But no, not even close.” Lawrence, for her part, isn’t offended, responding to his statement with, “True. I agree. I concur.”

Britney Spears reportedly had nothing to do with her breakup with ex-fiancé Jason Trawick, as the split was orchestrated by Trawick and Spears’ father, Jamie Spears, who still has legal control of her personal life and finances, according to Radar Online. “It really wasn’t Britney’s decision to announce the split last week, it was Jamie who made the call,” a source says. “Jason wanted out, and in the fragile state that Britney is in, it’s not like he could have a rational conversation with her about it, so it was really between him and Jamie. Britney was left out of everything and really didn’t even know what was going on.” The biggest surprise, though, is exactly how in the dark Spears apparently is about her personal life. “Jason and Jamie wanted to make sure that Britney didn’t lose it, so they had to water things down for her a bit,” the source says. “She still hasn’t exactly grasped yet that the relationship is totally over.”

Kristen Stewart may not have joined Robert Pattinson for the Golden Globes ceremony itself, but when she met up with him at an after-party at the Soho House, the “On the Road” actress wouldn’t leave his side, according to Us Weekly. “They hung out and stayed close for over an hour,” a source says of Pattinson and Stewart, who arrived in a less than red carpet-ready look of jeans and a backward hat. The pair then left with a group of friends including Sienna Miller for another party.

Lindsay Lohan recently parted ways with her long-suffering attorney, Shawn Holley, but apparently there’s still some unfinished business between them. “Lindsay owes Shawn over $300,000 in legal fees and she hasn’t made any payments to her in over six months,” a source tells Radar Online. “Lindsay hadn’t paid anything for any of the work Shawn has done on her three new criminal charges of lying to cops, in connection with her car accident in Santa Monica last summer. Shawn has kept Lindsay out of jail for over five years now and she has no idea how good she has had it. Shawn is extremely respected by judges and prosecutors and that has benefited Lindsay greatly. Lindsay’s new criminal attorney, Mark Heller, isn’t even based in Los Angeles and certainly doesn’t have the revered reputation that Shawn does.”

Much has been made of Jodie Foster’s rambling, confusing Golden Globes speech, in which she addressed her sexuality and criticized those that expect her to come out of the closet, but at least one thing is for sure: It wasn’t improvised. “It didn’t take me too long to write,” she told E! News on her way into the event, before anyone knew what she was going to say. “But there was a lot of whittling down. I had to do a lot of whittling down.”
