Gossip: Lady Gaga cancels world tour

New Year's Eve 2012 In Times Square

Rihanna has received her share of criticism for reuniting with Chris Brown, who was arrested for assaulting her in 2009. And it turns out the rekindled romance is even costing her some friendships. Rihanna and Katy Perry “aren’t tight anymore because Katy doesn’t approve of Rihanna dating Chris Brown,” a source tells Us Weekly. Perry and beau John Mayer reportedly steered clear of Rihanna and Brown at the Grammys last weekend.

It looks like those four postponed shows Lady Gaga announced earlier this week won’t offer enough time for her to recover from her hip injury. Instead, the singer has canceled the rest of her Born This Way Ball tour, with refunds available for tickets to the scuttled performances, Live Nation has announced. “After additional tests this morning to review the severity of the issue, it has been determined that Lady Gaga has a labral tear of the right hip,” a statement reads. “She will need surgery to repair the problem, followed by strict down time to recover. This, unfortunately, will force her to cancel the tour so she can heal.”

Charlie Sheen is still looking out for Lindsay Lohan financially, apparently. The “Anger Management” recently offered to cover half the costs of a fancy gown Lohan wore to a charity event last week, stylist Phillip Bloch tells E! News. “Never in a business like this do you see a celebrity pay for another celebrity,” Bloch says. “He’s very considerate.” Bloch adds the request came from Sheen himself and not from an assistant. Sheen also gifted Lohan with $100,000 last year to help pay off her bill to the IRS.

Evan Rachel Wood went on a Twitter tirade after discovering that the Daily Mail had published a photo of her ultrasound. “Which sick f— paparazzi hid in the parking lot of my hospital after my ultrasound? I can’t stand this,” she tweeted. “I couldn’t be more furious right now. I want to cry. My child isn’t even born yet.” Wood is expecting her first child with husband Jamie Bell. After asking the newspaper in a later tweet to remove the image, the story was taken off its site.

“How I Met Your Mother” star Alyson Hannigan has been granted a temporary restraining order against John Hobbs, a New Hampshire man who has repeatedly threatened the lives of Hannigan, her husband, Alexis Denisof, and their children, according to E! News. Hobbs, who was recently discharged from a mental hospital, must stay at least 100 yards away from Hannigan and her family and must refrain from posting about them online. “I still can marry you tomorrow. I can kill you tomorrow too,” one Facebook posting by Hobbs last month reads. “It doesn’t end. Even after death.”
