According to an interview in Brazil’s Quem (Who) magazine with Jesus Luz’s dad, the rumors of Madonna and his son getting married are kind of totally true!

Luis Heitor Pinto da Luz says: “The Kabbalah ceremony [in New York that] will link up my son Jesus Luz and Madonna only confirms he is extremely happy.”

There you have it, then!

Although, the Madonna-Jesus wedding most likely won’t result in the male model signing a prenup anytime soon, as the “wedding” won’t be legally binding.

“I don’t know if there will, in fact, be a real marriage between Madonna and my son. It will be a type of ritual, but I do not know kabbalah [or if the ceremony] will have legal validity,” says Luis, who doesn’t seem upset or concerned.

Jesus’ father, who is probably not God, continued to discuss his son’s relationship, saying He and Madge live together in her Central Park West apartment.

He denies another recent set of rumors that Madonna is shelling out large sums of money to teach her hunky Brazilian stallion to speak proper English.

“[Jesus] already spoke English very well before he knew Madonna!” his pop says indignantly, explaining: “He has an aunt residing in the United States.”

The young stud has also been playing “manny” to Madge’s kids, says papa Luz: “She has small children, and Jesus helps her out with various tasks involving all of them. He plays ball with the kids. Jesus has charisma and loves children.”

Whatever the nature of their post-ceremony relationship, Jesus’ dad heartily approves of his son’s choice in women – even if they’re over the half-century mark.

“I’ve spoken by phone with Madonna – in French, because my English isn’t fluent – and she appears to me to be a normal and polite person,” he says.

“She is feminine. I don’t feel she is a harsh person.”

Feminine? The woman’s arms are like pythons. We’re just saying. Has he seen Madonna recently? Good Lord. She probably juices up harder than A-Rod.

tyraTyra Banks had her own moment in the hot seat this morning.

The supermodel-TV host took the stand in Manhattan Criminal Court to testify against her accused stalker, 39-year-old Brady Green, who’s on trial for charges of stalking, harassment and criminal trespassing.

According to the New York Daily News, the star was calm as she told the court how terrified she and her staff were in March 2008 when Green attempted to get past security at the Tyra Banks Show studio show. The staff wouldn’t allow Banks to exit her dressing room.

“‘Stop! No! You can’t leave,’ ” she claimed they said. “I know I have fans, but I’ve never in my entire career had my staff act in this way.”

The incident has left her shaken to this day.

“I fear for my safety,” she said. “I feel extremely vulnerable.”

Prosecutors claim Green even threatened to slash a Banks employee’s throat when the person refused to give up the studio address, per the New York Post.

“I don’t fear for my life, I fear the safety of my staffers,” Banks explained. “I fear the safety of my family. I fear the safety of people in my vicinity.”

She admitted that since Green’s phone calls, love notes and the appearance at the studio, she has heightened her security, even having them tail her when she goes for a run.

“I don’t live that kind of sheltered, protective life,” she said. “I like to walk around my neighborhood.”

Banks also described Green as “more aggressive” than a typical fan, despite the defendant’s lawyer, Jeffrey Berman, pointing to the talk show’s website urging viewers to write to the model. Berman also pointed out that his client also watches Oprah Winfrey and Montel Williams’ shows.

If convicted, Green faces a maximum of 90 days in prison.

angelina-jolie-knocked-upIs Angelina Jolie pregnant again?

Yes, if you believe the April 27 issue of Star, a tabloid that has never heard a rumor it didn’t report as fact.

“Angie is pregnant,” a family insider told the magazine. “They’d been trying for another baby for months, but it was still a total shock when she found out. Brad and Angie have been fighting so much lately, it just didn’t seem possible.”

Sources say the actress is approximately two and a half months along.

“She’s thrilled. She said she knew she was pregnant before the test confirmed it!”

madonna-in-malawiMadonna’s application to adopt Chifundo “Mercy” James, 3, was turned down by a Malawi judge Friday morning in court. The judge cited requirements that adoptive parents reside in the African country for 18 to 24 months.

“I must have to decline to grant the application to Madonna,” judge Esmie Chondo, who was widely expected to sign off on the adoption, said in a closed-door ruling.

The icon arrived in Malawi last week to visit her orphanage, see Mercy, and take David to see his biological father to keep him in touch with his Malawi roots.

The star’s 2006 adoption of Banda was granted despite her not meeting the residency requirements, which caused outrage among some non-governmental groups that believes she was using her celebrity status to bend the law.

In his ruling, the judge expressed concern that by allowing Madonna or others to bypass their requirements, the courts could actually facilitate the trafficking of children by some unscrupulous individuals instead of safeguarding them.

Chombo also argued that Madonna’s good works with Malawi’s orphanages – she is now supporting more than 25,000 orphans in the country – will still benefit Mercy since she currently resides in a facility sponsored by the singer.

Madonna will be allowed to file an appeal against the order. Fortunately, she still has one adopted child in David Banda, and another in Jesus Luz.

Ghost Whisperer spoiler alert: Jennifer Love Hewitt is knocked up!

NOTE: She’s not really pregnant, nor is this really a spoiler, because if you watch the show, you probably knew Melinda was expecting already. Oh well.

Still, we found these Jennifer Love Hewitt pictures from the set of Ghost Whisperer in Pasadena with a fake pregnant stomach and thought we’d share:

We can’t help but be a little jealous of whomever created Jennifer’s fake baby on the show. We’re holding out hope that in real life, she’ll carry ours one day.

jason-trawick-britney-spearsWay back in the dark ages of early 2008, after a vacation in Costa Rica, rumors flew that Britney Spears was dating her agent Jason Trawick, who helped get her back with her parents and on the right career track post-meltdowns.

That buzz died pretty quick, but now it’s starting all over again, with E! News reporting that Jason Trawick and Britney Spears have been going on secret dates!

Trawick, a William Morris Agency rep who has worked with Spears for years, recently joined Spears for the first four shows of her Circus tour, but E! says the two recently have been growing much closer away from the workplace.

A Britney Spears insider insists that the rejuvenated pop star and the talent agent strictly have a “close professional relationship” and that’s it, calling it “ridiculous” to suggest the pair is anything close to “romantic.” But is it?

Another well-placed source reported to E! that Jason Trawick’s talent agency bosses are OK with his tight bond with Britney and, in fact, “They joke about it.”

The 37-year-old Trawick is credited with helping Spears reunite with her parents, her manager Larry Rudolph, and landing her comeback role on How I Met Your Mother.

He declined to comment on this story and referred a request to Spears’ rep.

But Jason, who also represents Hilary Duff, Taylor Swift and Paris Hilton, was spotted with Spears and her sons on March 1 in Louisiana, riding in a golf cart. Trawick was holding Sean Preston as Britney drove, holding Jayden James.

Perhaps most importantly, the “If U Seek Amy” singer’s father-conservator approves of Trawick’s involvement in Britney’s life, whatever that might be.

“Jason is one of the few people who Jamie Spears actually trusts,” says a Spears family confidante, and that could be his ticket inside her inner circle.

Wow.

Mere days after celebrity gossip outlets were wondering whether or not Chris Brown would go to jail for his alleged assault against Rihanna, there’s only one place this troubled singer appears headed: back into the arms of his forgiving girlfriend.

According to various sources, Brown and Rihanna are both currently at Diddy’s home on Star Island near Miami, Florida.

“She’s not listening to anyone,” a friend of Rihanna’s told Us Weekly. “It’s not easy to shut off a relationship she invested so much in.”

Witnesses say Brown has been spotted smiling and riding a jet ski.

Another source told People Magazine that the relationship was rekindled when Brown reached out to Rihanna on her 21st birthday earlier this week.

“He called to wish her happy birthday. They’ve reached out to each other. It’s been mutual.”

Added one more insider: “They’re together again. They care for each other. While Chris is reflective and saddened about what happened, he is really happy to be with the woman he loves.”

As the Los Angeles County District Attorney decides whether or not to charge Brown for his alleged beating of Rihanna on February 8 – and as the haunting photo of the singer following the incident remains seared in our brains – we just hope each side knows what it is doing.

A photo of Rihanna showing bad facial bruises allegedly sustained in an assault by Chris Brown has been posted by celeb gossip site TMZ. It is rather disturbing.

The Los Angeles police department has launched an internal investigation over what it is calling an unauthorized release of the photo of Rihanna, clearly showing injuries she sustained from an alleged assault by Chris Brown two Sundays ago.

“The photo has the appearance of one taken during an official investigation,” says a police statement. “The Los Angeles Police Department takes seriously its duty to maintain the confidentiality of victims of domestic violence.”

The LAPD said that Thursday evening it “began receiving numerous inquiries about the release of a photograph associated with a domestic violence incident that occurred on February 8, 2009, involving the entertainer Chris Brown.”

There have been some bogus Rihanna pictures going around, but this one appears to be the real thing – a haunting close-up of the woman with her eyes closed and severe bruises and cuts covering her forehead, lips and cheeks.

We have elected not to post it on our homepage due to the upsetting nature of the photo, but you may follow the jump if you wish to view it

chris-brown-rihanna-picDisgraced R&B singer Chris Brown has made his first statement following the alleged beating he doled out to superstar girlfriend Rihanna – he posted an update on his private Facebook page, according to the N.Y. Post, which reads as follows:

“You’ll begin to see her true colors. Believe it!”

Brown’s comment appears to suggest Rihanna is partly to blame for the alleged attack – which she says was not the first in their relationship and ended in his arrest Sunday on charges of battery and making criminal threats.

As if it weren’t obvious after inflicting horrific injuries upon her (or so the police report says), the troubled Brown appears to have confirmed his split from the Barbados-bred beauty by changing his relationship status to “single.”

As for what triggered the attack, rumors are swirling that Brown had been cheating on Rihanna and that a “booty call text message” sparked a heated argument as the couple drove back to their L.A. hotel prior to the Grammy Awards.

The text message reportedly angered Rihanna, who lashed out about it, only to have Brown attack her. She then faked a call to the cops and threw the keys to his rented Lamborghini out the window, further enraging him and leading to more violence.

The melee ended with Chris Brown fleeing the scene on foot, leaving Rihanna beaten and unconscious and in need of hospital treatment.

Brown, who posted $50,000 bail and had been holed up at the Hard Rock in Las Vegas before leaving yesterday for an undisclosed location, awaits word on whether the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office will be pressing charges.

So far, L.A. police have booked him on suspicion of making criminal threats, although that may not stick. A felony battery charge is a lock, however. Meanwhile, there is no word on Rihanna’s whereabouts since the incident.
