Angelina Jolie Reportedly a Psycho

A former bodyguard has come forward and alleged that all is not rosy in the Pitt-Jolie house. In an interview with In Touch magazine, former bodyguard "Bill" claims Angelina “is self-centered and a control freak,” “totally psycho,” and prone to fits of erratic behavior. The bodyguard, who was working for Brad and Angelina at the start of their relationship, remembers "a lot of laughing and fun" and "spontaneous sex" back then. Now he claims the “couple often sleeps in separate bedrooms, and that honeymoon phase seems to be ancient history.” You've gotta wonder how much he’s getting paid for his 15 minutes of fame.

How Jennifer Aniston Keeps Looking So Good

Jennifer Aniston is out and about promoting her new flick The Bounty Hunter. The 41-year-old sizzles on the cover of the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar.  She tells the mag the secret to her good looks is diet. She says, “Look, I eat really well and I work out, but I also indulge when I want to. I don't starve myself in an extremist way. You're not taking away my coffee or my dairy or my glass of wine because I'd be devastated. My advice: just stop eating shit every day.” With straightforward advice like that Aniston could solve America’s obesity problem. [Huffington Post]

A lawyer for Michael Jackson's father said yesterday that he intends to file a wrongful death lawsuit against MJ’s doctor, Dr. Conrad Murray, within 90 days, claiming that the physician's actions amounted to murder. Brian Oxman, who represents Joe Jackson, said the amount of the powerful anesthetic propofol given to Michael by Dr. Conrad Murray before Jackson's death on June 25, 2009, "was reckless" and is akin to second-degree murder. "The continuous administration of drugs over six weeks -- he (Murray) gave him propofol every night -- that is Russian roulette, that is loading six bullets into a gun with only six chambers," Oxman told Reuters.

Baseball Player Hits Mother With Foul Ball

At a sparsely attended and somewhat relevant Spring League baseball game, Minnesota Twins centerfielder Denard Span fouled off a pitch into the stands that struck someone wearing a Denard Span jersey. What are the odds it was his mother? The slightly older woman was reportedly fine, and is excited to see her son play (and hit somebody else) in the upcoming days. [ESPN]

IsoHunt Told To Pull Torrent Files Offline

The founder of popular BitTorrent site IsoHunt, Gary Fung, has been ordered to remove the .torrent files for all infringing content — an order that could result in the site shutting down. U.S. District Judge Stephen Wilson issued the order last week after years of back-and-forths over the legality of IsoHunt and Fung's two other sites (Torrentbox and Podtropolis). Fung claims he's still hoping for a more agreeable resolution that won't result in IsoHunt closing its doors, but for now, things aren't looking good for the torrent site. [Wired]
