It was a quality celebrity rumor: Lady Gaga had a leg amputated below the knee just 'cause she thought it'd be cool and "different." Sadly, it's not true.

Well, fortunately is more like it.

Totally Gaga

Despite reports that this is "accurate and based on facts," and she dropped the bombshell "whilst hopping around the studio," don't believe the hype.

The Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumor, however? That we leave to you to draw conclusions on. The pics are more conclusive than her "peg leg" ones.

Hilariously, the Fame singer's record-label rep was actually asked him to confirm, deny or clear up the leg amputation rumor, and finally replied Saturday:

"It's not true," the rep said.

Lady Gaga: Two legs to stand on. This rumor: Zero.

It's surprising it even made this far and a rep addressed it. No "Exclusive: Lady Gaga Amputates Leg" headlines on any reputable site was one clue.

As was the lack of any doctored Lady Gaga pictures looking even remotely real. Besides, when would the alleged operation have even happened?

Lady Gaga is a touring machine, most recently taping a performance for American Idol. The girl hops around, but only figuratively.

Not to mention the logistical and ethical impossibility of a doctor doing this: "I do not know any country or any location where this has happened, or would be considered legally or ethically correct," sums up one plastic surgeon.

Finally, a suggestion for rumor-starters: Next time, say if it's the left or right leg and throw in more medical "details." Makes it more convincing ... and funny.

As for how this got started, Lady Gaga's amputated leg is the work of Britain's Daily Squib, which posted a peg-leg photo and an article about Gaga's "new look."

The April 24 piece was meant as a satire, but peeps actually ran with it. Nice work!

So much for that pledge to shut up mercifully until May 13. Michael Lohan will be back in L.A. Monday ... and he's already telling people that he's going to start the legal ball rolling to create a conservatorship for Lindsay Lohan.

That would leave him, or a court-appointed third party, in charge of the actress' finances, career, medical decisions and pretty much her whole life.

Hey, it worked for Britney Spears.

No word if he would actually be granted such a role, but Mike says he'd gladly serve as conservator but is open to someone else in the role as well.

Lindsay is in New York City right now but refuses to see her father, who has been angling to meet with her for weeks. Michael says it's now time.

This photo of Michael Lohan has absolutely nothing to do with this article or his turbulent relationship with Lindsay Lohan. Though in a way it explains so much.

Michael Lohan also says he does not want his daughter to go to jail, and fears that she will die, as do many people close to her and on our staff.

In the immediate future, however, jail is the more imminent threat.

Lindsay Lohan is likely to be jailed because she has squarely violated the terms of her probation in her DUI case and a big court day of May 20 looms.

Michael wants Lindsay in rehab but not a traditional, group facility. He wants to go the Brooke Mueller route - a private home with lots of doctors. 

What Michael isn't factoring in, of course, is how that type of rehab is real expensive and Lindsay has no job and is saddled with credit card debt.

It's the thought that counts, though.

Has President Barack Obama been having an affair with Vera Baker? That's the shocking allegation made by the National Enquirer in this week's edition.

The publication claims Obama and Baker, a former campaign aide, holed up at Washington, D.C. hotel, and a "security video" could expose everything!

Baker, now 35, worked tirelessly to get Obama elected to the U.S. Senate, raising millions in campaign contributions, in 2004. They grew close since.

While Vera Baker insists that "nothing happened" between them, the Enquirer says anti-Obama "operatives" are digging hard into the alleged affair.

Some are reportedly offering $1 million for information confirming it.

El Presidente

Did Barack Obama and Vera Baker have an affair? That's the allegation of sources who claim the former aide is now his mistress - and claim there's evidence out there.

According to the celebrity gossip tabloid, a limo driver (anonymous of course) claims he drove Vera to a secret hotel rendezvous with the President.

He says he drove Baker "from a friend's home in the D.C. area to the Hotel George where I learned later that Obama would be spending the night."

The driver recalled that he "waited in the lobby while she went to change her outfit. But to the best of my knowledge she did not have a room at the hotel and she was not staying there so I thought that it was a bit odd."

He says he picked up Barack Obama at the airport and drove both he and Vera Baker to various locations while he was raising money.
