The Word: A big, legal Memorial Day weekend for E!

This weekend, E! Online posted an item saying January Jones and her “X-Men: First Class” director, Matthew Vaughn, had a “very close” relationship on the film’s set. This wouldn’t be such a scandalous allegation if Jones weren’t currently pregnant and keeping mum on the baby’s paternity — and if Vaughn not currently married to Claudia Schiffer, with whom he has three children — the youngest of whom was born just last year. E! Online went as far as reporting that Schiffer and Vaughn supposedly abandoned their rented home in Beverly Hills around the time Jones revealed she was pregnant.

Vaughn’s lawyers got ahold of the item, and it’s now scrubbed from E! Online’s website. Meanwhile, Vaughn’s lawyer, Martin Singer, told Page Six that the report is an “absolute lie.” No word yet whether Vaughn’s attorneys are going to pursue any further legal action.

However, many sites are commenting on how odd it was that there was no “X-Men” premiere, just a “cast screening” in New York last week, which Jones and other stars of the film attended. Vaughn wasn’t present due to a “severe” case of tonsillitis, according to his publicist, even though he was able to do interviews for the film the same day.

So far, the bigger sites such as TMZ.com and RadarOnline, not to mention People and Us Weekly, have kept silent, meaning they’re either waiting until there’s more proof or the item is indeed a total lie.

I’m going with lie as no man would cheat on Claudia Schiffer, right? If so, there really is no hope for the rest of us.

Kingston in ICU

Sean Kingston is in critical condition in a Florida hospital after being badly injured in a jet skiing accident Sunday evening, reports TMZ. Jackson Memorial Hospital says the hip-hop star was transferred from their trauma unit to the ICU and as of Monday night was in critical condition. Kingston was jet-skiing with a female companion around 6 p.m. on Sunday and crashed into a bridge near Miami Beach.
