Amidst reports that Lindsay Lohan’s father Michael fathered a love child, photos have surfaced of 13-year-old Ashley, the alleged secret sister of the Mean Girls star. Rumored babbymama Kristi Kaufman released photos of the teenager who she claims was conceived during an affair with Michael Lohan, while he was briefly separated from ex-wife Dina.
Kristi reveals to OK! that she had attempted to contact Michael in the past, but now feels the media is the only way she can get his attention. “Many times I offered to do this privately so the other Lohan kids wouldn’t be hurt,” Kristi told OK!. “But Michael would not live up to his obligations.”
Indeed, hours after the news broke Michael, 48, told OK!, “I haven’t spoken to Lindsay or my other kids about it yet. When I get home to New York, I’ll discuss it with my kids. I love them. I’m sorry for them finding out like this.”
Kristi now lives in Montana with her husband and daughter and says she went public with the news after trying for over a decade to get Michael to live up to his obligations as a dad.
Michael reportedly took a paternity test, and can’t wait to share the results. Just when you thought the Lindsay Lohan Daddy soap opera couldn’t get any better, a voicemail Michael left for his starlet daughter, in which he pleads for her to call him back, was “leaked” today.

Although Will Smith now spends his time hanging with A-list pals like Tom Cruise and David Beckham, he certainly hasn’t forgotten that it was his role on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air that got him his start. The Fresh Prince himself, in fact, reunited with DJ Jazzy Jeff for a special performance at the afterparty for the Hancock premiere in Hollywood Monday night, which paid tribute to his famous TV role.
People reports that Smith, 39, took the stage and said, “I’m out of shape-I’m playing an out of shape superhero here,” before performing several hit songs, including the theme song from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
An excited crowd, including Hancock costars Charlize Theron and Jason Bateman, bobbed to the music, and Tyrese Gibson even jumped on stage.
Will’s life certainly has come leaps and bounds since his start as an unknown rapper. Maybe sometimes the current box-office sensation, husband of Jada Pinkett-Smith, and father of three gathers the family ‘round the fire and recounts how his life went from a struggling kid in Philadelphia to $100-million-dollar sensation, and it goes something like this: “Now this is a story all about how, my life got flipped-turned upside down…”
Check out our gallery of the role opposite DJ Jazzy Jeff that catapulted Will Smith to fame:
Update: We are no longer accepting pictures for our You Are WHO sweepstakes. Thank you.
Sure, lots of us wind up playing air guitar when a great song comes on the radio. And for an instant or so, maybe we even think we are that rocker. Well, to celebrate this year’s Rock Honors show, we’ve come up with another way to pretend you’re a star. We’re offering everyone a chance to immortalize themselves by becoming Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey for awhile.
Our You Are WHO sweepstakes provides all its participants with masks of the band’s leaders. We want you to get creative by taking pictures of yourself in wild situations while you’re wearing ‘em. You could be cooking burgers, water-skiing, or sky-diving – doesn’t really matter to us. We want to see your most fun (meaning odd, cool, bizarre, or memorable) photos. Two winners will be randomly chosen from all entries and will take home a new version of Rock Band and enough points to download a bundle of Who songs being released on July 15th. (Sorry Wii players, the bundle is only for XBOX 360 and Playstation 3.)
There are two categories: “group” photos and “solo” photos. Grab some pals, or go it alone. We’re looking for some crazy scenarios that will help evoke the spirit of the band’s impact on modern music. The ones we like best will be shown to the world in a photo gallery on the VH1 blog. Make a statement!

“I unconditionally love my wife, even though we’re not together anymore. The Linda that I know was a great mother and a great person.”
The wrestler-turned-reality star also commented on how his daughter Brooke is doing.
“Brooke has gone through a range of emotions. She was a little confused about who everybody was, and maybe had misinformation, but right now Brooke understands who I am, and who her mom is, and what’s real and not real. She’s doing real well now.”
Britney Spears is making a comeback; at least that is what producer Rodney Jerkins is predicting. Jerkins, who is working on Spears’ new album, slated for 2009, told Rap-Up TV, that he and the “Gimme More” singer are working on tracks that are “very dance-y, really up-tempo, in the clubs, aggressive, catchy and real hook-friendly.”
Jerkins revealed, “I’m trying some new things [with Spears]. I’ve always worked with Britney, and I love working with her. I’m trying to reinvent her and reinvent myself with her project.”
Regarding the pop star’s reported chaotic personal life,
French mag Closer is reporting that Angie went into labor with her twins last night and gave birth to the latest perfect Jolie-Pitts this morning. Finally someone has arrived to knock Shiloh off her cutest kid ever throne. Good riddance!
We’ll keep an eye out for further reports, and will be sure to watch if we notice Jennifer Aniston binge drinking at bars while looking depressed. Until then – congrats to the Wanted star and her family if it’s true. [JustJared]
Update! Angelina IS at the hospital, but she’s not given birth. She’s currently under observation and will remain at the hospital until she gives birth, which should happen in the next couple of days. Babies!
Young Jeezy took on John McCain recently, drilling the presidential hopeful about his plans to help those in need when they appeared together on Saturday Night Live. He called the Senator a “fraud” and described their tense encounter:
“I told [John McCain] the ‘hood was f**ked up, and he was like, ‘How you doing?’ (It was) real talk. They know entertainers, so they shake your hand (and say), ‘I’m your friend.’ But my mama is about to have surgery that I gotta pay for out of my pocket because she can’t get insurance. “I don’t really feel McCain. It ain’t just because Barack is black; he can make change. Just like Bush equals recession, Barack equals progression. I really feel that.”
Next week, sonic journeyman Beck’s latest album Modern Guilt hits stores, actual and virtual. Last night, the VH1 blog was lucky enough to get a listen, and we learned a few things. Though he might be one of the coolest, most talented individuals making music, he’s still worried about the same things we are. Social anxiety, questions of the soul and our current position in world affairs play over heavily ‘60s-influenced rock and producer Danger Mouse’s (Gnarls Barkley) beats. Check out our impressions of Beck’s latest. Listen to Beck on Rhapsody.
Jay-Z jumped to defend pal Kanye West after Amy Winehouse’s wacky performance at the Glastonberry Festival in London where she called the “Stronger” singer a c—t. Amy improvised the lyrics of her song “Some Unholy War” to say, “At least I’m not opening for a c–t like Kanye.” It’s moments like these that make live performances so fabulous!
Jay-Z told MTV,
“I don’t agree with it. [Kanye’s] my brother and the biggest artist on Roc-A-Fella right now. … I guess I should hook them up, because he’s a great guy, too. I don’t know what the problem is. I don’t know where that came from.”
Of course, never one to let others steal the spotlight, the Jiggaman participated in his own musical feud with Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher, by performing his own rendition of Oasis’ “Wonderwall” complete with a guitar strapped to his shoulder. Gallagher had criticized Jay as headliner of the traditionally rock-based festival, telling the BBC,
“If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. I’m sorry, but Jay-Z? No chance. Glastonbury has a tradition of guitar music. I’m not having hip-hop at Glastonbury. It’s wrong.”
Jay told MTV Base of his on-stage response,
“I have a sense of humor like a Brit, so I thought people would appreciate that. Noel Gallagher was one of the biggest detractors, so I figured that was a cool way to start the show.”
Celebrities using the media to blast each other is so out; on-stage disses are the new way to play the celebrity feud game.
