Gossip: Rihanna wants to have Chris Brown’s baby?

Rihanna claims that things are working better now with on-again off-again boyfriend Chris Brown because they’ve grown up a lot in the four years since his arrest for assaulting her. The singer insists to Elle UK that they have “a great friendship that’s unbreakable. Now that we’re adults, we can do this right. We got a fresh start, and I’m thankful for that,” she says. Rihanna even predicts that she will “probably have a kid” within the next five years.

Justin Bieber‘s celebrations for his 19th birthday didn’t go so swell Friday, leading the Canadian pop star to tweet a simple, “worst birthday.” And while many of his fans quickly leapt to the conclusion that the paparazzi were responsible for his dejection, it reportedly had more to do with the security at London’s Cirque du Soir nightclub, who wouldn’t let some of his entourage in because they couldn’t prove they were over 18, according to E! News. Bieber still managed to have some fun — dropping a reported $12,000 on bottle service for his pals — but the incident with security put an early stop to the festivities. “I think Justin and his friends had a good time,” a source says. “He had a complete separate area in the club, and most of his guests arrived earlier. He was, of course, not amused that some of his close friends were refused entrance.” But the folks behind the club are eager to stay friends with Bieber despite the kerfuffle. “Justin Bieber visits Cirque Du Soir regularly, and he and his friends are always welcome, as long the members of the group are legally old enough to enter the club,” a club spokesman explains. “This was simply a matter of regulation that we must adhere to.”

Lindsay Lohan appears to be living it up as much as she can in advance of her March 18 trial — and even skipped out the latest court appearance related to the case to stay in New York and go clubbing instead, according to Us Weekly. Maybe she knows it doesn’t look too good for her this time around when it comes to avoiding jail time, especially considering the drubbing her new lawyer, Mark Heller, has been getting from Judge James Dabney. After dismissing Heller’s motions to have the case put on a “slow track,” Dabney cautioned that Heller would need someone by his side versed in California law or “Miss Lohan is going to have to come in here and waive her right to have competent attorneys versed in California law and procedure.”

With his first starring role in an action film, “The Last Stand,” flopping at the box office, it may come as no surprise that Arnold Schwarzenegger is looking at new avenues of employment. Coincidentally, the former California governor has recently signed on to be executive editor of Muscle & Fitness and Flex magazines, two bodybuilding titles. “It was in these magazines that I found the spark that inspired me to start lifting weights, and eventually move to America and realize my dreams, and I’m proud to return as executive editor,” Schwarzenegger says in a statement. Over the course of his career, Schwarzenegger has been featured on the covers of the two magazines more than 60 times.

Former “Sesame Street” puppeteer Kevin Clash previously denied the batch of allegations against him from young men that he’d had sexual relationships with them while they were minors, and now Clash wants the three related lawsuit dismissed, according to TMZ. “There are two applicable types of statutes of limitations, a six-year one based on when the right of action has accrued, and a three-year one based on when the alleged victim turned eighteen and was therefore no longer under the disability of being a minor,” Clash’s attorney writes in motions filed last week in New York. Jeff Herman, who is representing the three plaintiffs, doesn’t think this gambit will work. “It should be noted his motion does not say the abuse did not happen, just that it is too late to file the complaints,” he points out to E! News.
