Miley Cyrus and company are the last thing you want staying at your hotel, the folks at NYC's schmancy Greenwich Hotel learned recently when her entourage checked in. "It was like a tornado hit the lobby. Miley and her posse took over, screaming and carrying on so much that management received a number of complaints," a source tells Life & Style. "Someone in the group was smoking pot, and they were swearing loudly and throwing themselves all over the expensive furniture." I hear another guest, possibly a Vanderbilt, was treated for a sprained wrist after too much pearl-clutching. Hotel management tried to give Miley a talking to, but she was having none of it, responding that "she's spent so much money there that they should be glad to have her," the source says. Well, she just sounds like a peach.
Paltrow and new man live it up in ... Utah?
So Gwyneth Paltrow was serious about all that conscious uncoupling stuff after all, as she's reportedly dating "Glee" co-created Brad Falchuk, according to Star magazine. The two spent some quality time together at a resort in Utah in late July. Because nothing says romance like Utah. In late July. "I saw Gwyneth and Brad one afternoon sitting in the dining room," a fellow vacationer tells the tabloid. "She had her hair down and wasn’t wearing any makeup. They were chatting and smiling and looked totally at ease." I'm sure there's a new Goop post coming about how an $8,000-a-night private villa at a resort in Utah is a great place for a little "me time."
Aniston and Theroux take quick jaunt to Bora Bora
Take note, Gwyneth: When Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux want to just get away for a bit, they apparently get very far away. The couple reportedly spent last week taking a quick jaunt to Bora Bora in honor of Theroux's 43rd birthday, according to E! News. Not too shabby. Aniston and Theroux stayed in a private swim-up bungalow at the Four Seasons where they pretty much just sunbathed and, you know, caught up on reading. As you do. In Bora Bora.
Angelina Jolie's plagiarism claims won't go away
The Croatian author who claims Angelina Jolie ripped him off for her film "In the Land of Blood and Honey" may have lost his last court battle against her, but he isn't giving up that easily. James Braddock sued Jolie in 2011, accusing her of using his book "the Soul Shattering" as the basis for her film, but a judge ruled in her favor. Now Braddock is filing an appeal in federal court, according to Radar Online. "The court’s decision noted a number of material errors, starting with clear descriptions that are interpreted or translated incorrectly," his appeal reads. "The tests that were performed were not executed in the right way."
Usher: Marriage was a mistake, but no regrets
For Usher, the biggest mistake of his life was "getting married to at 28." That may sound severe, but he still insists he has no regrets. "Most people probably think I regret it because I ended up getting divorced," Usher, who went through a lengthy legal battle with ex-wife Tameka Foster, tells Oprah Winfrey's O magazine. "But it helped me learn that sometimes I think I know more than I actually do."
