Prosecutors in Lindsay Lohan’s latest legal battle have reportedly offered the troubled starlet a plea deal that would let her avoid jail time — but she doesn’t want it, according to TMZ. Sources tell the Web site that if Lohan agrees to plead guilty to as-yet-unspecified charges, she’d only have to serve 90 days under house arrest and attend a mandatory rehab program. But Lohan is reportedly adamant that she will avoid any punishment whatsoever and has rejected the plea deal, the sources say. Her trial is set to begin March 18.

With Justin Bieber’s bummer of a week in London behind him, at least one mystery has been solved: the Canadian pop star’s penchant for wearing a gas mask in public. “The gas mask Justin has been wearing around London is a joke between his friends, but people are starting to take it seriously,” a source tells Us Weekly. “All his friends take turns wearing it as a joke to throw off the paparazzi. It’s not a serious thing, they’re just having fun around London with it.”

Taylor Swift is doing everything she can to avoid her fear of ending up alone. “I don’t want to end up being awful and intolerable. Alone. Laying in a marble bathtub by myself, like sad, with a glass of wine complaining that my life ended up alone because I pushed everyone away,” she tells InStyle UK. “The typical Hollywood sad cliché of the poor lonely starlet with no one because she put up all these walls and didn’t trust anyone, that’s my fear. And that’s why I live my life the way I live my life because I’d so much rather feel everything than end up like that.” She does have friends, though, she insists — but being friends with guys has proved problematic for her. “I’m a girls’ girl. I have guy friends but the problem with having guy friends is, like, I always get [romantically] linked to them,” Swift says. “And they’ll end up in a slide show of people I’ve apparently dated on the Internet.”

While her fiancée, Liam Hemsworth, is in his native Australia spending time with family, Miley Cyrus finds herself doing damage control, taking to Twitter to quash rumors that their relationship is in trouble. “I am so sick of L.A. And sick of the lies that come with it,” she posted last week. “I didn’t call of my wedding.” Of course, being spotted out and about in Hollywood without her engagement ring on probably don’t help. But a source assures E! News that all is well in the Hemsworth-Cyrus household. “She is not listening to what everyone is saying about her and Liam,” the source says. “Everything is find between them, as far as I know.”

Hilaria Thomas Baldwin is already making plans her for daughter that might not include husband Alec Baldwin. “We’re having a girl and we definitely want her to speak Spanish,” Baldwin Thomas tells Us Weekly. “It’s a little tricky because my husband doesn’t speak Spanish, so that’ll be a little tricky in the house. But maybe we will have our own conversation and he’ll have to learn. We can talk behind his back. I cannot wait.”
