Gossip roundup: For once, Lindsay Lohan receives good legal news

Lindsay Lohan Trial

Lindsay Lohan got some good legal news for once late last week, learning that she will not be facing any charges related to her arrest following a November nightclub brawl in New York City, according to E! News. The Manhattan District Attorney is reportedly dismissing the case altogether because witnesses close to the plaintiff, professional psychic Tiffany Mitchell, were uncooperative and surveillance footage of the fight was inconclusive. “Tiffany is very disappointed that the District Attorney has not decided to prosecute Lindsay,” Mitchell’s attorney, Gloria Allred says.

Ashton Kutcher has vowed to keep his mouth shut when it comes to dishing on his relationship with Mila Kunis after how things turned out with ex-wife Demi Moore. “You know, I’ve learned the hard way how valuable privacy is,” Kutcher tells Elle magazine. “I’ve learned that there are a lot of things in your life that really benefit from being private. And relationships are one of them. And I am going to do everything in my power to have this relationship [with Kunis] be private.”

Sources say that prior to Katy Perry and John Mayer’s recent split the pair had been “fighting,” possibly over how fast their relationship was moving, according to Us Weekly. Perry had even brought Mayer home for the holidays to Santa Barbara. “Introducing her to his dad was a big deal,” a source close to Mayer says. “It was just too much, too soon.” But don’t count the pair out completely: “They’ve broken up before so it’s hard to tell,” another source says. “She’s changed a lot since she’s been with him.” And Perry hasn’t been shy about her heartache, posting a link on Twitter to a song by Tristan Prettyman called “I Was Gonna Marry You” with the message, “Perfectly put.”

Amanda Bynes‘ family is reportedly very concerned about the troubled actress and wants her to move back to Los Angeles where they can keep a better eye on her, according to E! News. The accident-prone starlet has been living it up in New York, tweeting pictures of her outlandish recent makeover and a new cheek piercing along with bizarre and nonsensical declarations like “Baby corn and fried tofu,” “Fear is pain arising from the anticipation of evil” and “I created the phrase lly and lololol.” Bynes has reportedly refused her family’s requests that she move back to L.A.

Matthew McConaughey is sticking by buddy and disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong following Armstrong’s confession to doping. “He told a lie, he’s not a liar,” McConaughey tells Details magazine. “When it came out, I took it personally, but then I realized it ain’t personal to him. I was going, ‘That son of a bitch!’ but then I thought, ‘Well, what was he supposed to do? Call me to the side and go, ‘Hey, I did this’? But I’m happy for him now because despite all this outside conflict, he doesn’t have this inner conflict anymore.”
