** - Said report comes from Star Magazine.

In the exciting world of celebrity news, you have sources that are at least somewhat believable, and then you have Star, In Touch Weekly and OK! Magazine.

Our point? There's celebrity gossip, and there's making up blatant lies, which is somehow not illegal. We've got to meet Star's legal team someday.

Anyway, according to Star, which already claimed Britney and Adnan married in Mexico, Ghalib is now bragging that she is going to have his baby.

The evidence: The pop princess' belly is bulging. OMG it's true! That can't be from sucking down pork rinds and Starbucks lattes all day long or anything.

"Britney is Adnan's dream come true. He knows that if he has a child with Britney, he'll be made for life," a friend of Ghalib tells Star.

But while Adnan may be pumped up, Britney's parents are not.

Father Jamie Spears has tried hard to stabilize his eldest daughter's life and the last thing he and her mother, Lynne, want is another grandchild. Casey Aldridge already assured they'll be getting another l'il mistake in 2008.

"Her parents know she can't handle more children," says a family source.

Well, they probably didn't make that quote up at least.

No official word on whether a special new man surprised Lauren with flowers or whether Conrad simply picked them out herself for decorative purposes.

The LAPD is finally commenting on the record regarding the investigation first reported earlier this month. The subject? You-know-who.

As TMZ reported in early February, Sam Lutfi is under investigation by the Robbery Homicide division of LAPD for allegedly drugging Britney Spears.

Brit and the Boys

LAPD officials initially said there was no such investigation, despite sources within the department saying that Sam Lutfi was, indeed, being looked at. 

Sam Lutfi: Shady doesn't begin to describe him. 

Now, Captain Kyle Jackson of the Robbery Homicide division has issued the following statement regarding the LAPD's investigation:

"The issues regarding Britney Spears are being considered by the department to determine if laws have been violated. Particular suspects have not yet been fully identified nor has a formal investigation into open charges officially commenced. At this time we don't know whether or not a formal investigation will be initiated."

Translation: Find the nearest cave and hide, Osama.

Yesterday, we published an interview with Ali Lohan that quoted her as saying she wants to follow in the celebrity-clad footsteps of older sister Lindsay.

In that case, Ali, prepare to be so desperate for attention that you pose for any magazine that calls. Such as one called Paper.

Paper Magazine

Previewing its article about Lindsay Lohan, Paper holds nothing back in its scathing critique of the Firecrotch Queen:

"After a few well-publicized bumps in the road and a wild girlhood spent under scrutiny, Lindsay Lohan emerges strong, ready to work and without regrets. Girl, you're a woman now."

Now that's what we call investigative, hard-nosed journalism!

Britney Spears' mom, Lynne Spears, has been praising her ex-husband, Jamie Spears, who has taken control of their troubled daughter's affairs.

"Jamie had to change his whole routine. Lynne sings his praises. He has been such a rock. He has stepped up to the plate," a family friend says.

"Jamie has gathered a team of reputable people who are around [Britney Spears] now. She's not well, but for the first time in a long time she has people around her who really care about her."

As for how Lynne Spears is coping with having her daughter in and out of the hospital, the friend says, "She's up and down. It's a roller coaster ride as a mother."

On top of that, Lynne also has pregnant 16-year-old daughter, Jamie Lynn Spears, who lives in Kentwood, La., to take care of. Lynne, who has been shuttling between Louisiana and California, is currently back in Los Angeles.

Lynne and Jamie Spears also have a 30-year-old son, Bryan Spears.

"She has to spend time between L.A. and Kentwood. As a mother she feels needed in both places. She's doing whatever she can to help both girls. She's got that maternal instinct, and it's in high gear."

One big positive lately? The ostracizing of Sam Lutfi.

Another positive step for the family has been Britney Spears' recent visits with her sons Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1.

"Lynne talked to Jamie, and he said it was a good visit," says the source. "[Britney] slipped into that motherly mode. They picked up right where they left off. She still has a long way to go [to get better], but that's what we hope and pray for ... Lynne and Jamie want their child to be whole again."

According to his reality TV show, Hulk Hogan knows best.

According to Christiane Plante, the former WWE star sure does know best... about how to have an affair!

Welcome to the Gun Show

The 33-year old Plante, who worked with Brooke Hogan on her bomb of a 2006 album, told unreliable celebrity gossip tabloid The National Enquirer about her affair with Hulk.

"My relationship with Terry [Bollea, Hogan's real name] began at a time when Terry and Linda privately knew their marriage was ending. She had left him already, although no official papers had been filed," Plante said. "Terry is a good man, good father and a good friend, and he and I grew close at a time when he was going through a very difficult period. It seemed right then, but I know it was wrong."

Not wrong enough to accept money from an entertainment news source and tell her story to the world, of course.

"Having felt the guilt and pain build up, I gave a note to Brooke apologizing for my actions," Plante added. "I will never be able to fully forgive myself for this. I have lost an amazing friend."

For her part, Brooke wrote the following on her MySpace blog:

I'm going through one of the hardest issues i've ever had to deal with in my life…please keep me and my family in your prayers…. I'm continuing work in the studio… I'm sure my writing will reflect my state of mind at the moment.

And we're sure the songs that result from that writing will suck more than Plante during a night out with your father.

Last night on American Idol, the issue of which female put on the best performance was far from grey. In fact, it was black and white.

Brooke White!

Grady on Stage

The quiet crooner sat on a stool, strummed her guitar and performaned a perfect version of Carly Simon's "You're So Vain." Consider what Simon Cowell - the judge about whom that song could have been written - said about the audition:

I absolutely loved it. The absolute perfect song for you. It was one of the rare occasions where I felt the artist had genuinely chosen the song. It absolutely connected; I thought you sang it very well. The song didn't sound old-fashioned. This is why we put you through into the latter stages.

Take a look and a listen for yourself and let us know: is Brooke White now the female favorite?

Also earning praise last night from the judges were:

  • Kristy Lee Cook: Bounced back from last week with a rendition of "You're No Good" by Betty Everett that was a "100% improvement" from the prior week, according to Randy Jackson.
  • Carly Smithson: Simon didn't love the song choice of "Crazy on You" by Heart, but did tell the Irish singer that "I don't think any of these girls can touch you vocally."

Jenna Bush and Henry Hager celebrated their final moments of unattached life with respective girls-only and guys-only getaways this month.

Bush, 26, the daughter of President George W. Bush, and a group of female friends headed to Florida in mid-February for a girls-only getaway.

"She had her weekend ... in Boca Raton, but at a private home," a source tells People. "It was like a spa weekend. It was very low-key."

The following weekend, Henry Hager, 29, and a group of male friends kicked off a bachelor party in Miami. It was one for the ages.

"It was a total boy's weekend," says the source.

"There were about 20 guys, most of whom came down from D.C. and New York. They went fishing all day Saturday, but they didn't catch anything!"

The group then headed to South Beach to continue the festivities. Wooo!

Jenna Bush and Henry Hager got engaged last year.

Henry Hager "was having a great time," but called it a night around 1:30 a.m., while some of his friends stayed behind.

The couple is set to marry May 10 at the President's ranch in Crawford, Tex. The Prez says he's writing the checks but is out of the loop as far as planning.

The People source says Jenna Bush and Henry Hager are considering traveling to many countries and spending four weeks in Europe on their honeymoon.

Four weeks! Sucks to be an Intern at The Hollywood Gossip and receive a measly one week off ALL YEAR. But of course, wherever they go, our interns don't have to worry about the Secret Service. So there are trade-offs.
