Macaulay Culkin is not on heroin.

A statement released on his behalf makes this abundantly clear - and urges people not to believe recent rumors about the former child star, now 31.

The Macaulay Culkin heroin rumor surfaced this week when a tabloid claimed he's basically a depressed, chronic junkie with about six months to live.

Not the case, his rep insists.

The rep says reports claiming Culkin is hooked on heroin are "not only categorically without merit, but it is also impossibly and ridiculously fictitious."

"We beseech responsible media to consider the source and its reputation and to please not perpetuate this destructive, insulting story by pursuing it any further."

Emily Maynard and Arie Luyendyk, Jr. GOT. IT. ON.

At least according to a new tabloid report citing intimate knowledge of their Fantasy Suite loving before she accepted Jef Holm's proposal.

The Us Weekly staff, of course, makes stuff up about The Bachelorette like it's their job, so we recommend taking this with a boulder of salt.

That said, here's what they claim went down ...

Arie Luyendyk, Jr. and Emily Maynard

Just days before Jef Holm got down on one knee and proposed on The Bachelorette season finale, Emily was hooking up with runner-up Arie.

Us says that contrary to Emily disavowing overnight dates because she's "a mother and a role model," the two did get intimate on the show.

Naturally, Arie Luyendyk, Jr., was upset to learn he wasn't the recipient of Maynard's final rose - especially after their fantasy suite magic.

"He stormed off," says the source, claiming his full reaction was edited out. "He screamed, 'You just slept with me!' It wasn't shown on TV."

The insider says that Maynard never intended to lead him on and was truly "in love with two people" and torn between Jef Holm and Arie.

By Holm's admission, their romance "started off slowly," while her chemistry with Arie was obvious early ... it couldn't have been an easy call.

Even if she did sleep with Arie, it's unfair to criticize Emily if she truly felt he could be husband material. A guy wouldn't be criticized in the same situation.

But again, remember ... tabloid. Salt. Boulder.

As for Emily and Jef: Will they last?

Jon Gosselin's claims he's broke and can't pay rent because he has to pay child support. This is apparently news to his ex-wife Kate Gosselin.

According to her attorney, he's not even on the hook anymore.

Cheryl Young, who has represented Kate in her ongoing legal battle with her ex, says Jon no longer has to pay Kate a dime for their kids.

Says Young: "I read Jon’s statement and was quite surprised to read that he claims to be struggling to keep his child support payments current."

"As of April 27, 2012, Kate voluntarily relieved Jon Gosselin of all current and future child support obligations for their eight children," she added.

The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star claimed yesterday that he is strapped for cash and fearful of his ability to pay support - and stay out of jail.

"I can't afford to pay my rent and the domestic-relations staff tells me they will put me in jail unless I pay child support," Jon told Star Magazine.

While hundreds of thousands partook in Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin repeated her support for the fast-food chain.

In a Fox News interview, the 2008 V.P. nominee defended Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy's decision to publicly express anti-gay marriage views.

Moreover, she called backlash against Chick-fil-A an affront to free speech.

You Betcha

"Well, that calling for the boycott is a real - has a chilling effect on our 1st Amendment rights," Palin told Fox News' Greta Van Susteren.

"And the owner of the Chick-fil-A business had merely voiced his personal opinion about supporting traditional definition of marriage."

"One boy, one girl, falling in love, getting married."

"Having voiced support for kind of that cornerstone of all civilization and all religions since the beginning of time, he then basically [is] getting crucified."

Whichever side you're on in the gay marriage debate, Sarah Palin's interpretation of the 1st Amendment is interesting to say the least.

Dan Cathy certainly can express his opinions, but as the head of a popular company, has to expect repercussions from such statements.

No. Please, God and Mayans who predicted our demise before this calendar year is over, just... no.

In an interview with the September issue of Seventeen, Kendall and Kylie Jenner make it very clear: they want their own reality TV show.

"We go on a lot of adventures!" Kendall says of what the spin-off would depict. "We do crazy stuff. We will kidnap one of our friends or get a group together and go to Disneyland for the night."

Sure. Whatever the writers come up with, basically.

E!, of course, has also spun-off Khloe Kardashian and husband Lamar Odom. Kourtney Kardashian has taken both Miami and New York City and, let's face it, is there any doubt a Kim Kardashian and Kanye West series is on the way?

The sisters are writing a science-fiction novel together and compare themselves to their older, more successful, frequently naked siblings.

"Kim and Kourtney were the same way," Kendall, 16, said of working with Kylie, 14. "They were fighting constantly when they were our age, and then there was a point where they flipped and loved each other and they were best friends."

Dare we ask: Would you watch a Kendall and Kylie reality show?

For Rebecca Black, it will always be "Friday."

The 15-year old tells Billboard Magazine that she has no plans on slowing down her music career any time soon. In fact, she's nearly finished recording her debut album, a CD whose influences include Rihanna and The Black Keys.

Will any of those artists be collaborating with Black?

Rebecca Black at Teen Choice Awards

No, says the artist: "Since it's my first album, we're really just starting off and getting the base but maybe next time."

And, yes, Rebecca plans for there to be a next time. And a time after that. And a time after that. Asked if fans can expect more videos in the future, Black didn't hesitate, replying:

"For sure. Until the day I die. Until the day I die."

Fortunately, death threats against the singer have passed. So let's all hope that day doesn't arrive any time soon.

Ryan Lochte and K. Michelle are not two people we ever expected we'd be posting dating rumors about, but here you go, with the supposed evidence:

Lochte is a hip-hop fan who rocks that sick grill, so it's not that surprising he'd be an acquaintance of a cast member on VH1's Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.

Here's Ryan Lochte and K. Michelle at the NBA All-Star game together:

Ryan Lochte, K. Michelle

Whether or not they've ever hooked up or are hooking up - Ryan Lochte's girlfriend Blair Evans may have something to say about that - they clearly hang out.

There are also shots of them partying together on other occasions, and throughout the Olympics, K. Michelle has been Tweeting about her "Pooh."

Yes, her Pooh, who has (mostly) been kicking ass ...

K. Michelle Lochte Tweet

Are they actually dating? Or just friends? Friends with benefits?

Who can say, but Lochte continues to be all the Olympic rage.

Ryan may have a long way to go to match Michael Phelps' career medal haul, but he's right on his tail in terms of celebrity gossip attention.

Eminem, Facebook King. The rapper has that title all to himself after surpassing 60 million "Likes" Wednesday, more than any other living person.

Rihanna and Lady Gaga, who each have huge social media followings of their own, are Liked by about 59.4 million and 53.5 million, respectively.

Despite the fact that fan interaction and writing in first person on Facebook is the #1 way to get shares and Likes, being famous trumps all.

On Eminem's Facebook page, the 39-year-old generally posts links to YouTube videos of his music and interviews, with little or no comment.

According to AppData, Eminem is close to nabbing more than 26,000 "Likes" each day, with Rihanna not far behind with 22,000 "Likes" per day.

Rihanna and Gaga's more engaged approach top Eminem in the "talking about this" metric, however, which measures overall activity on a page.

Eminem has 290,896 people talking about him, while Rihanna has 1,016,304 and Lady Gaga has 1,209,588 ... that's a lot of Little Monsters.

When it comes to Twitter, however, Lady Gaga is the undisputed queen with more than 27 million followers. Justin Bieber has nearly 26 million.

P.S. Please Like THG on Facebook and help us catch Eminem! We're only like 59 million behind! Hey, 872,000 isn't too shabby people.

The Paperboy debuted at the Cannes Film Festival and is based on the true story of a southern woman who falls in love with a convicted killer.

It stars a very impressive cast of Nicole Kidman, John Cusack and Matthew McConaughey and it deals with some serious issues.

But it also features Zac Efron in his underwear! Forgive us, but that's our main takeaway from the following trailer, as the former High School Musical actor sheds his teen image by slow-dancing with Kidman... in a pair of tighty-whities.

Seriously, this is what we call breaking movie news. Watch for yourself:

The Paperboy hits theaters on October 5.

Destinee Hooker's unusual name receives a lot of attention, but the 25-year-old U.S. Olympic volleyball standout wants to be known for her play.

She's succeeding. Hooker scored 22 points and the U.S. women's team improved to 3-0 with a three-set preliminary round victory over China.

The top-ranked U.S., led by Hooker, toughed out a 26-24, 25-16, 31-29 win against the third-seeded Chinese in a possible medal round preview.

The Americans may be a team of ... wait for it ... Destinee.

Hooker isn’t surprised that her name is getting a lot of press at the London Olympics; she's been dealing with the remarks since she was a child.

She says it doesn't faze her, though, as she's proud of it.

Destinee’s name was a result of severe complications at birth; she nearly died then, but pulled through, inspiring her dad to call his baby girl “Destinee.”

As for the double E? “Since I was such a blessing, [my father] decided he wanted to spell it uniquely,” she explained to celebrity gossip website TMZ.

“So I am thankful to be here and glad my Dad gave me the name.”

We're thankful as well. The Chinese team? Maybe a little less so.
