Vanessa Minnillo cheating on Nick Lachey

Former MTV presenter Vanessa Minnillo has been caught canoodling with a man and it wasn’t long-term boyfriend Nick Lachey.

A source tells Page Six the 28-year-old was spotted cosying up to 90210’s Matt Lanter at the SLS hotel in Los Angeles.

“Vanessa definitely wasn’t with Nick. She sat on Matt’s lap and was really close to him for two hours at the party. He looks like a younger version of Nick.”

Rumours of a split have plagued the couple for a while now so perhaps she isn’t cheating. 

Better yet does anyone even care about these two? Thought not.

Dad cleared in Slumdog Millionaire star sale

Rubiana Ali and father

The father of Slumdog Millionaire child actor Rubiana Ali has been cleared by Indian officials of allegations he tried to broker the sale of his famous daughter in exchange for £200,000.

Rafiq Qureshi was accused by the News of the World of attempting to profit off his 9-year-old daughter, who plays a young Latika in the film, after the paper set up a sting operation and had a reporter pose as potential buyer masquerading as Arab royalty.

Nisar Tamboli, a senior Mumbai police officer said: “So far there is no evidence of any offense, hence there is no registration of complaint and no arrest.” 

Qureshi has always proclaimed his innocence, claiming that the tabloid “tried to frame” him and had “played dirty.”

jade-goody

Deceased reality TV star Jade Goody asked her mum to smother her with a pillow – but only after Mother’s day.

Jackiey Budden has admitted she considered helping her cancer-stricken daughter die but knew Jade’s new husband Jack wold be horrified.

The 50-year-old told OK! magazine: “We watched her slowly disintegrate. It was more heartbreaking than just seeing someone die.

“She wanted me to put a pillow over head. I really didn’t want to see her go that way. I thought, I don’t want to have to put a pillow over her head and suffocate her without anyone knowing.

“If she was on a machine, we’d have to turn it off, but when you’ve got cancer you don’t have a machine.

“I knew she was waiting for Mother’s Day. She’d done her wedding, her christening, planned her funeral and she wanted to see her boys on Mother’s Day.”

She also warned Jade’s husband Jack Tweed, currently serving a jail term for assault, to stop getting into trouble or risk never seeing Jade’s sons, Bobby (five) and Freddie (four), again.

The 27-year-old lost her battle with cervical cancer on March 22.

Britain’s Got Talent Shaheen Jafargholi is a thriller

Speaking of Britain’s Got Talent, another star in the making has come out of the woodwork, in the shape of 12-year-old Shaheen Jafargholi.

The Welsh schoolboy’s Susan Boyle’s current biggest rival on the television show, which will see the winner performing their act in front of the Queen at the Royal Variety Performance and receive a £100,000 prize.

Shaheen wowed Saturday night viewers with Who’s Lovin’ You by the Jackson Five, after switching over from a so-so rendition of Amy Winehouse’s ‘Valerie’.

The show’s fans have been flooding internet forums with complaints after Jafargholi‘s impressive CV was leaked online, revealing Shaheen has appeared on Casualty, Torchwood and attended the prestigious Mark Jermin Stage School. He also played a young Michael Jackson in stage musical Thriller Live! 

Some people love complaining about anything and everything. Had anyone even heard of this boy before the show? Exactly. So why are people complaining that he’s not an amateur?

He isn’t already famous so I don’t see the problem. As far as I’m concerned he would be a deserved winner, with a long and bright future ahead of him, dare I say, he’s possibly the next Jacko (minus the wacko part).

Britain’s Got Talent Susan Boyle is YouTube hit

A video of Susan Boyle’s audition for Britain’s Got Talent looks set to become the most viewed YouTube clip ever.

Less than two weeks after it was uploaded to the site Susan’s audition has been watched more than 100million times – closing in to smash the previous record.

And it has been watched five times more than US President Barack Obama’s inauguration ceremony in January, which has had 18.5million views.

The current most watched clip on YouTube is comedian Judson Laipply’s Evolution Of Dance, which has been viewed 118 million times since it was uploaded in April 2006.

The 47-year-old Scot left viewers open-mouthed with her sensational rendition of ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ from the musical Les Miserables.

She is the red-hot favourite to walk away with the television programme’s £100,000 prize and to perform in front of the Queen at the Royal Variety Performance.

She said: “I’m doing all this as a tribute to my Mum. If she could see me now, she’d be very proud.”

I’m just waiting for the impending makeover.

Slumdog Millionaire star put up for sale by dad

Rubiana Ali

According to the News of the World, the father of 9-year-old Rubiana Ali, who played the young Latika in the film, attempted to sell his daughter into illegal adoption for millions of rupees (about £200,000).

Rubiana’s father Rafiq Qureshi feels slighted by the filmmakers – despite the film doing so well and his daughter becoming so famous his family are still living in such rough conditions.

“We’ve got nothing out of [Slumdog Millionaire].” claims Qureshi. “They gave some money at the start, but they gave nothing afterwards. They gave us around 150,000 rupees [£2,800].

“We live in one room — seven of us sleep on the floor,” Rafiq reportedly said. “I earn £2 to £3 a day. I have to consider what’s best for me, my family and Rubiana’s future.”

This is not the first time that the young “Slumdog” cast has been swept up in controversy. In January, several of the actors’ parents spoke out to protest their lack of financial remuneration from a film that has grossed over $327 million at the international box office.

Director Danny Boyle & Co. donated $750,000 to a Mumbai children’s charity on top of an additional $750,000 for the education and hosing of both Ali and Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail, the youngest Salim.

Police in Mumbai are now investigating the allegations of which Qureshi is denying.
