— Those who barely remember “American Pie” star Chris Klein, let alone that he dated the current Mrs. Cruise, will be nonetheless shocked to learn that he may have impregnated Katie Holmes long before she met Tom.
“Shortly after his relationship with Katie ended, Chris and I had a heart-to-heart,” some guy claiming to be Chris’s friend recently told the National Enquirer. “We were having dinner at Cafeteria, a restaurant in New York’s Chelsea district, when Chris blurted out: ‘Dude, you know I got Katie preggers.’”
“There was a long silence,” remembers the guy National Enquirer claims passed a polygraph test. “I realized Chris had said more than he had intended. My next thought was: What happened to the baby?”
Chris never said, the National Enquirer reports. “From the look in Chris’ eyes, I realized this was highly personal,” his highly perceptive pal shared. “I didn’t want to probe any further.”
“Chris never brought it up again,” added his empathic buddy, “but I know he must be reminded of Katie’s pregnancy every time he sees her daughter, Suri.”
A spokesperson for Holmes says the Enquirer story is false.
Lindsay Lohan dumps another one
As she openly admits, Lindsay Lohan hates sleeping alone. So much so, she even books an adjoining room for her “sober buddy” when staying at hotels. So it could have been a close call for the rehabbed starlet’s sobriety when, according to Star, Lindsay’s pal Courtenay Semel packed her bags just weeks after the BFFs became roomies.
“I think it was a jealously issue,” the magazine’s insider confided. But it wasn’t Lindsay’s money Courtenay envied — her dad is is Yahoo! chairman Terry Semel. It was Lindsay that Courtenay wanted, claimed Star’s spywitness.
“Every time Lindsay had a girlfriend around the house, Courtenay started acting all weird,” said the source. “She’d go up to her bedroom and start texting Lindsay — even though they were in the same house! It was like Courtenay wanted Lindsay all to herself.”
Courtnenay’s exit may’ve been a good thing, since she has one hard-partying reputation. Unfortunately, now that LiLo’s back in Hollywood, she’s surrounded by bad influences.
Another friend told Star that Lindsay’s planning to replace Courtenay with a female model named Alex. “Alex has a boyfriend who really likes to drink,” said the insider. “This could lead to trouble.”
Dish on the fly
Jimmy Kimmel took issue with Paris Hilton's description of Britney Spears as a “great mother.” “Well, maybe compared to yours,” the talk-show host retorted in a Page Six quote. “(My mother) always showed up to custody hearings and rarely did she show her vagina to the press.” … Who needs writers when Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie happily put on a free performance at the Screen Actors Guild Awards? People reports that the attractive twosome couldn’t keep their paws — or lips — off of each other throughout the show. Even a visit to their table from Mickey Rooney couldn’t cool the make-out session. … Boy George recently told the Telegraph that flamboyant soul singer Amy Winehouse, along with her intimate love songs and troubled personal life, “reminds me of myself in the early days of Culture Club.” Boy confessed, “My favorite thing was seeing her going into Shoreditch police station because that's where I was nicked. It's obviously the pop-star cop shop.”
