Wednesday gossip roundup: Prince Harry named ‘Most Eligible Bachelor in the World’
Jeremy Renner is reportedly going to be a father, as an ex-girlfriend of his is set to give birth next month, sources tell Us Weekly. Renner was overheard at a Golden Globes after-party telling Eva Longoria, “I’m going to fly in when her water breaks,” to which Longoria responded, “I’m so blown away.” The unidentified ex-girlfriend has reportedly been staying in Renner’s L.A. home during the last months of her pregnancy. “They used to date but it wasn’t serious,” says a source, adding that Renner is “being ultra-secretive about it, but she has been going on about her life and not hiding it.”
Elton John and David Furnish are parents once again, welcoming their second son, Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John via surrogate late last week in Los Angeles, the singer announced on his Web site. “Both of us have longed to have children, but the reality that we now have two sons is almost unbelievable,” John and Furnish tell Hello! magazine. “The birth of our second son completes our family in a most precious and perfect way. It is difficult to fully express how we are feeling at this time; we are just overwhelmed with happiness and excitement.” The boy’s birth comes just one day after John’s rep was flatly denying reports that the couple was expecting another child.
Lindsay Lohan reportedly did enough damage to her room at the W Hotel in New York’s Union Square last summer that she’s no longer welcome in the hotel, according to Us Weekly. “Her suite had so many cigarette burns, they had to change all the carpets. She did at least $50,000 worth of damage while partying,” a source says. “She is not allowed back at any W hotel in NYC, ever.”
He may trouble-prone and lack his older brother’s line of ascent to the British throne, but Prince Harry still beats out George Clooney to be named Town & Country magazine’s Most Eligible Bachelor in the World for 2013. “He’s the wild-card royal, the naughty one, the one who goes out with rah women, hangs out with a fast crowd, downs too many drinks, and goes home at the wrong moment. That’s why we all like him best,” the magazine’s editors say. “Harry might not possess a towering intellect — he was a lackadaisical student at Eton, and he skipped university to go to Sandhurst, the English equivalent of West Point — but he is cooler and more appealing than his older brother, sweet as William undoubtedly is.”
Justin Bieber‘s tattoo habit is insatiable. The 18-year-old Canadian singer has already gotten his second piece of body art of 2013, a set of Roman numerals across his collarbone, as revealed in an Instagram photo he posted of himself and producer Jamal Rashid, who got the matching digits on his bicep. In a comment on the photo, Rashid claims the numerals, “I IX VII V,” stand for 1975 and have some spiritual meaning, though Bieber hasn’t offered an explanation as to the meaning. In any event, if it’s mean to be the year 1975, it should be “MCMLXXV.”
