Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez Get Caught Kissing, Teen Girls Go Apes**t

After the two recently got caught getting extremely close while on vacation in the Caribbean, it may be literally impossible for Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez to convince their fans that they’re not dating. The new images show the pair kissing one another on a private yacht in St. Lucia. Bieber can even be seen with his hand on Gomez's booty. Maybe this kid isn’t so bad after all. [TMZ]

Lindsay Lohan is Back on the Streets

After a brief stint in rehab, Lindsay Lohan has rejoined the world where she has pledged to become a positive member of society. RadarOnline reports that “Lindsay Lohan has been released from the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, California after a 90-day stint in rehab...The Mean Girls star, 24, served the rehab stint in connection with her 2007 DUI conviction, as her repeated failures to meet the terms of her probation caused her to serve two stints in rehab -- and two in jail -- last year.” Lindsay was not available for comment, but her mother told anybody who would listen that she is willing.

Actor Pete Postlethwaite passed away yesterday after losing his long battle with cancer. Best known for his for classic roles in films such as In the Name of the Father, The Usual Suspects, and Amistad, Postlethwaite first hit it big in Hollywood back in the early-‘90s. Even though Postlethwaite was suffering from cancer, he still managed to pump out amazing work this year in Ironclad, Clash of the Titans, Inception, and The Town. News sources have stated that Postlethwaite died peacefully with his family by his side at a hospital in Shropshire, England. Postlethwaite is survived by his wife, Jacqueline, along with his son, William, and daughter, Mary. RIP Pete Postlethwaite. [Telegraph]

Allen Iverson Hits New Career Low, Begins Hanging out at Applebee’s

Philadelphia Magazine decided to catch up with Turkish basketball sensation Allen Iverson to see how he was enjoying life overseas. (Spoiler Alert: He isn’t.) “With his NBA career over, his marriage in trouble, and rumors swirling about drinking and money problems, the greatest Sixer of his era finds himself playing minor-league basketball in Turkey and spending his nights at a T.G.I. Friday’s in Istanbul. Isn't it, weirdly, exactly how we always thought it would end for Allen Iverson?” The magazine asks. Yes, I always imagined him in a Turkish T.G.I. Friday’s. [Philly Mag]

Brett Favre is Finding it Difficult to Relax on his First Day of Retirement

Remember that one girl Brett Favre supposedly harassed via text message? Well, apparently there are two others. Good Morning America claims that “in the wake of a sex scandal that tarnished Brett Favre's storied 20-year NFL career and cost him a a $50,000 fine, two more women have come forward, filing a sexual harassment suit against the star quarterback. Christina Scavo and Shannon O'Toole, both former massage therapists for the New York Jets, filed suit against Favre, the New York Jets and Lisa Ripi, a woman who hires massage therapists for the team, in the Supreme Court of the State of New York today.” So, this is basically the Tiger Woods scandal Part Deux.
