More trouble for Lindsay Lohan. The IRS has reportedly seized the “Liz and Dick” star’s bank accounts because of her outstanding debt, according to TMZ. Lohan previously had liens filed against her for unpaid taxes from 2009 and 2010 totally more than $233,000, but the government apparently got tired of waiting for her to make good on the debt. She is said to also owe money for 2011. Sources tell the Web site that Lohan is in panic mode and is scrambling for ways to make enough money to get out of debt pronto.

A man who told the National Enquirer that he had a “steamy affair” with John Travolta while working as his pilot from 1981 to 1987 is now suing the actor, insisting he never signed a confidentiality agreement that would bar him from talking to the media about his time with the actor, according to TMZ. The man, Doug Gotterba, claims Travolta’s lawyer, Marty Singer, threatened a lawsuit after the story was published. Singer  maintains that Gotterba’s termination agreement included a confidentiality clause and that the former employee is just out for attention. “Mr. Gotterba obviously filed this lawsuit to get his 15 minutes of fame,” Singer says. “We plan to get this meritless case promptly dismissed.”

Might her upcoming “Maleficent” mark the end of Angelina Jolie‘s acting career? It’s not out of the question, the actress says. “I have enjoyed being an actress I am so grateful to the job and I have had great experiences and I have even been able to tell stories and be a part of stories that mattered and I have done things for fun, but…” Jolie tells Britain’s Channel 4 News coyly, once again prompting rumors of a planned early retirement. “If it went away tomorrow I would be very happy to be home with the children,” she says. “I wake up in the morning as a mom and I turn on the news like everybody else and I see what’s happening and I want to be part of the world in a positive way.”

A nice dinner out at the Beverly Hills Polo Lounge with John Mayer turned awkward for Katy Perry when her ex-husband, Russell Brand, showed up. Just how awkward are we talking about? Perry reportedly crouched under her table and hid just to avoid Brand, according to Us Weekly. “The hostess almost seated Russell next to Katy,” a source says. “Katy’s face was like, ‘Oh s—!’” And while the seating disaster was averted and Brand was set up elsewhere in the restaurant, he apparently needed to satisfy his curiosity upon learning of Perry’s presence.  “On his way to the bathroom, he looked at [John and Katy] through a window,” the source adds.

Now that the world has learned that Kate Middleton is pregnant, the next question is exactly what kind of mother will she be? “Kate will be a firm but fair mother,” a pal of the Duchess of Cambridge predicts, according to Us Weekly. “Kate will let her children have fun and freedom, but she will also make sure they do what is best for them.”
