Amy Winehouse's drink spiked with Ecstasy?

Amy Winehouse’s dad Mitch says his daughter was rushed to University College Hospital on Monday night because she accidentally overdosed on prescription drugs.

‘She had a bad reaction to some medication,’ he tells the Daily Star. ‘She took 2 doses instead of 1, by mistake.

'She did not take a deliberate drug overdose. She is on medication to wean her off hard drugs and she took the wrong amount.

‘The drug replacement is an opiate and caused her to fall ill and have a fit. We are now waiting for the toxicology report.’

But another tabloid claims Mitch, 57, thinks a pal spiked Amy’s drink with ecstasy – and he is even said to have reported his suspicions to police.

‘He is convinced that one of her hangers-on was responsible and he’s waiting for a toxicology report to show what caused her to fit,’ a source tells The Sun.

Amy, 24, was diagnosed with lung disease emphysema last month.

Christian Bale: I have dark moods and an obsessive streak

The Dark Knight actor admits he's difficult to live with

Christian Bale has revealed that he suffers from extreme mood swings.

The Batman actor, 34 – who was arrested in connection with a alleged assault on his mum and sister last week – admits he’s a very intense person.

‘Sometimes I’ll get into these strange, dark moods,’ he says.

‘They don’t last very long any more. Ever since my daughter was born, I’ve learned that it doesn’t make sense to be gloomy when you have such beauty and wonder in your life.’

Christian - who has 3-year-old Emmeline with wife Sibi - says he's lucky that his wife empathises.

Blake Fielder-Civil is said to be struggling to cope in Pentonville Prison.

Amy Winehouse’s husband was sentenced to 27 months behind bars last week after pleading guilty to GBH and attempting to pervert the course of justice.

Britney Spears Wants No Contact With Sam Lutfi

Britney Spears doesn’t need a restraining order against former sidekick Sam Lutfi anymore.

“Britney has made clear to everyone that she does not want to be further harassed or contacted in any way by Osama ‘Sam’ Lutfi, now or at anytime in the future,” the pop star’s attorney said.

Spears will not seek an extension for a restraining order against Lutfi, because she has made it clear to the old pal that she wants nothing to do with him.

Lutfi, for the time being, seems willing to go along with those wishes.

At attorney for Lutfi released the following statement Wednesday: “Mr. Lutfi and Mr. Spears have mutually agreed in private that no hearing or order is necessary at this time.”

Attorneys for Spears and her father, Jamie, are expected to appear in a Los Angeles courtroom Thursday morning to give an update on the conservatorship. A hearing on a temporary restraining order barring Lutfi from having contact with the pop singer was also scheduled for Thursday. The order issued earlier this year required Lutfi to stay 250 yards away from Spears or her homes.

Spears’ mom accused Lutfi in court papers of keeping her daughter a hostage in her own home, drugging her and taking over her finances.

He was with the singer when she was photographed without underwear and various other situations the star exhibited erratic behavior.

Spears’ father has control over his 26-year-old daughter’s personal life and finances. Thursday’s hearing had originally been scheduled to decide whether the conservatorship should be made permanent, but Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz decided weeks ago that she would instead consider other issues.

It is unclear how long Spears’ affairs will remain under her father’s control, but Ingham wrote that he does not expect her feelings about Lutfi to change.

“If Mr. Lutfi makes any future attempt to contact Britney after the temporary conservatorship has concluded, Britney has made clear she will take all appropriate legal action,” Ingham wrote.

Lauren Conrad: “I’m Not a Tortured Soul”

The Hills Lauren Conrad says there’s more to her than tears and anger.

“I know I look tortured...I’m not a tortured soul,” she tells the September issue of CosmoGirl.

“But, it’s a TV show and you don’t see all sides of people,” the reality star adds.

“The Hills is meant to be a dramatic show about relationships,” Conrad said. “It’s not about me being a designer. No one wants to see me working at the factory on my collection, or me and Lo [Bosworth] having a dance party in our pajamas.”

However, Conrad isn’t so easygoing about all of the aspects that come with fame.

“Can you imagine being 22 and having your parents know everything about you?” she asks the magazine.

“Literally, my mom can go on the Internet and find out where I went last night, who I was with. I mean, there are no secrets!”

Conrad’s clothing line was recently dropped from L.A. boutique Kitson because, they say, she did not promote it enough.

Alex Rodriguez Responds to Wife’s Divorce Filing

New York Yankees Alex Rodriguez takes a slug at his wife, Cynthia, in a new statement.

The baseball player responds to his wife’s claim of “emotional abandonment” and her request to keep the $12 million Coral Gables mansion.

He argued that the divorce settlement should be determined by their prenup, which Cynthia signed a month before their 2002 wedding, reports People magazine.

The pair have two children, Natasha, 3, and Ella, three month. A-Rod admits that his wife is a “loving and nurturing mother.”

According to court documents, the athlete wants the two to work out a time-sharing custody schedule without the court’s intervention.

Although A-Rod admits the marriage is “irretrievably broken,” he feels that mentioning “immaterial and impertinent” issues like his alleged “extra marital affairs and other marital misconduct,” is unrelated to the case, because Florida is a “no fault” state.

Although Madonna was not mentioned in Cynthia’s court documents, her attorney called the Yankee’s association with the singer an “affair of the heart” and “the last straw.”

While most stars keep their romantic lives under wraps, Jessica Simpson spills her guts on everything from her current boyfriend Tony Romo to an abusive relationship with an unnamed ex.

But, the 24-year-old singer’s love life hasn’t been all roses.

“I was going through a lot of pain,” she said of her past relationships. “I didn’t try anything to change my life other than dating different types of guys and conforming to their worlds. I thought I had to be artsier, more intellectual.”

When the asked about the song “Remember That” which references an abusive relationship she tells the magazine she has “definitely experienced abuse in a way that [she] would tell people to take their heart and run.”

But who is the mystery man? Simpson wouldn’t go into detail, but was quick to praise ex-boyfriend John Mayer making it clear he wasn’t the culprit.

“John believed in the Jessica Simpson that’s within,” she gushed. “He cherished our love. He helped make me the woman I am today. John is going to be an amazing man for someone, but I know that I was supposed to be with someone else.”

Jennifer Aniston Wed Brad Pitt Eight Years Ago yesterday

Eight years ago today, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston wed in a star-studded, $1 million ceremony in Malibu, CA.

"We were engaged for a year-and-a-half, and we just got married when it felt right," Pitt, then 36, has said of their decision to tie the knot.

In her vows, Aniston, then 31, promised to always make Pitt his "favorite banana milk shake." Pitt, in turn, vowed to "split the difference on the thermostat."

While exchanging rings, the couple declared: "With this ring, I thee wed... so that all the world may know my love for you."

Aniston later recalled: "Nothing is more moving than seeing a man cry at his own wedding."

Look back at romantic photos of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston.

Hollywood's golden couple split in January 2005 under speculation that the actor had turned to Mr. & Mrs Smith co-star Angelina Jolie.

"This decision is one of much thoughtful consideration," Pitt and Aniston said in a statement about their breakup. "We happily remain committed and caring friends with great love and admiration for one another."

Jolie gave birth to the couple's twins Knox and Vivienne earlier this month. They join the pair's adopted brood of Maddox, 6, Pax, 4, Zahara, 3, and biological daughter Shiloh, 2.

Aniston, meanwhile, has been dating musician John Mayer.

Who do you think looks best on the arms of Brad Pitt? Jennifer Aniston or Angelina Jolie?
