Jennifer Aniston may be back with Brad Pitt according to tabloid reports that are hilariously manufactured, but she is still Gerard Butler’s biggest fan.

In fact, she's been praising her co-star in The Bounty Hunter so much, she's fueling long-standing rumors that the hotties are more than just friends.

“We just had so much fun together you know. He’s just fun. Gerry’s the most unpretentious guy,” Jennifer told Access Hollywood in a new interview.

“He’s definitely a guys guy, but he’s absolutely the most lovely, sort of self-deprecating and just what you see is what you get,” she says of Gerry.

“We look at work the same way. We always have each other’s back.”

Jen and Gerard

Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler: More than chums?

As the mother of Ali Fedotowsky told Jake Pavelka last night on The Bachelor, that's the most important thing in a relationship! You better have her back, Gerard!

Jen is celebrating her 41st birthday at a resort in Cabo San Lucas. Friends on hand include Courteney Cox Arquette, Jason Bateman, Sheryl Crow, and Butler himself.

So, how does she feel about turning a staggering 41? “Thirty-one, pssh,” she jokes. “It’s quite lovely I have to say. 30 was a hump but you know 31 is fabulous."

This isn't the first time Jen has gotten flirty with the hunky Scotsman. What do you think? Would they make a cute couple? Or would they be better as friends?

The involuntary manslaughter charge filed against Dr. Conrad Murray in the death of Michael Jackson wasn't nearly enough to satisfy the late icon's father, Joe.

Following Murray's arraignment on Monday, a disappointed Joe did what he does best - went on Larry King Live to ridiculously say that Michael was murdered.

Joe Jackson never met a microphone he didn't like to babble nonsensically into, and somehow managed once again to make Michael's sad death all about him.

The Jackson family patriarch said that Michael's death was part of a larger plot and Murray got off easy. Michael's sister La Toya issued a similar statement.

Here's Joe Jackson on Larry King Live last night ...

Attorney Brian Oxman seconded that the reckless administration of Propofol by Murray would constitute second degree murder for any victim not named MJ.

Never mind that the charge came after a six-month investigation and that there was clearly no intent by Murray, however careless he was, for Michael to die.

Yesterday, Katherine Jackson, Michael's mother, labeled Murray a monster. That he may be, but a murderer in the eyes of the law is quite another matter.

Jake Pavelka toured the hometowns and met the families of his remaining four women on The Bachelor last night. From New York to Oregon, everything went well.

Until Ali Fedotowsky dropped the biggest bombshell in Bachelor history, that is. Well, except for last summer on The Bachelorette when the same thing happened.

The story editors really need to step it up. As always, THG endured Jake's trials and tribulations on The Bachelor to recap the action in our exclusive point system:

Gia Allemand says Jake's unlike anyone she's dated. Yup, he's that dull. Minus 3.

Erick, Gia's brother, is like a poor man's Pauly D from Jersey Shore. Plus 4.

Gia confesses was with a "bad guy" who cheated on her with all her friends. Wow, so Carl Pavano is not only wildly overpaid, he's a complete jackass. Minus 7.

Jake Contemplates

Jake pretends to deliberate while looking at pictures from ABC.com.

Visiting New England in the late fall, Jake tells Ali that it comes to cold, "I'm a big baby." Replace "cold" with just about anything and that would be true. Plus 5.

Ali drags poor Jake to ... her deceased grandmother's empty house. To borrow one of the simplest, but most profound Liz Lemon quotes: "Dealbreaker!" Minus 3.

Ali's mom says she Googled Jake. THG ranks #1 when one does this. Plus 30.

Jake to Tenley: "I run everything I do by my parents." Groan. Minus 8.

Jake to Tenley: "You have to be a we." Swoon. Plus 9.

Tenley choreographs a ballet dance for Jake set to a traditional wedding march. We can't decide if genuine cuteness trumps extreme awkwardness, so ... Even.

Jake asks Tenley's dad for his blessing - while dating three other girls - and gets it! Why? Because he's "a man of integrity." On The Bachelor. LOL. Minus 48.

Farewell, Ali Fedotowsky ... or will you return?

For once, Vienna Girardi was not the focal point of the entire episode. Plus 12 for that, but an obligatory Minus 7 because her dad has some major screws loose.

The "bombshell" is Ali Fedotowsky going all Ed Swiderski on Jake Pavelka's Jillian Harris. She's gotta go back to work! Minus 100 for the absurd hype this got.

But Plus 86 for Ali crying in the hallway; Jake leaning over the banister. Ali pulling out of the rose ceremony, and Jake's remark: "All I have right now is hope."

While it's rather lame of Ali to up and leave, she probably made the right choice. Jake is pretty lame, and it's hard to get a new job in this economy. Plus 24.

In the promo for next week, the phone rings and it's ... Ali! Who would have guessed? Oh wait, us. Since this already happened on The Bachelorette. Minus 8.

TOTAL: -12. SEASON: +1. Roses: Tenley, Gia, Vienna. Gone: Ali ... or is she?!

Who should Jake Pavelka give his final rose to?

Recent rumors of their demise have gotten so out of control that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are suing a London tabloid for claiming they are planning to split.

The couple's lawyer, Keith Schillings, tells BBC News that Pitt and Jolie have begun legal proceedings against the always-reputable News of The World tabloid.

On January 24, that publication said the two had agreed to divide their assets and made arrangements for the custody of their six kids. This is not the case.

Schillings tells the BBC that the report contained "false and intrusive allegations" and the paper failed to meet a demand for a retraction and apology for it.

Schillings says Sorrell Trope, an L.A. divorce lawyer identified by some publications as advising the two, denied that he had been in contact with the couple.

Brangelina is not dividing up assets or Maddox anytime soon.

"I have had no contact from... Angelina Jolie and/or Brad Pitt," Trope said in a statement. "I have never met... your clients or had any involvement with them. The foregoing is true with respect to all other members of this firm."

Basically, for a lawsuit to have merit, the plaintiff must prove it was deliberately defamed by false reporting, rather than the publication merely screwing up.

It certainly looks like that was the case here, as evidenced by Trope's denial. The News Of The World has yet to comment on the story or lawsuit.

Pitt and Jolie, who are not married, nonetheless appear wholly committed to their relationship and each other, as their Super Bowl PDA in Miami Sunday.

They took their eldest son, Maddox (pictured), to the big game. Surprisingly, there was no sign of Jennifer Aniston, who Brad is still in love with, according to OK!

Better have some good lawyers on retainer, OK!

A year to the day we reported on Chris Brown's arrest for beating up Rihanna before the Grammy Awards, could the singer be romancing a new R&B diva?

He's already collaborated with Keri Hilson musically, and last night, Chris "was all over" Keri at the Axe Lounge at Liv, where Diddy was hosting a big bash.

While Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush celebrated the Saints' big Super Bowl win, Chris was apparently looking to score a touchdown himself. Eh, eh?

He and Keri were "grinding each other" on the dance floor, reports say, and Chris even made a request: "He insisted on her being in a photo with him."

Now that's a big deal!

Thugz Gotta Move On

Run for it, Keri Hilson! Chris Brown's creepin'!

The two left together, along with a group of friends. No word from either of their reps as of right now, but Keri posted the following on her Twitter page:

"LMAO paps think they slick!! Gone ask CB & I to tk a pic on carpet then asked da crew if we datin!! LHLAB so, no! I'mma let yall know now :P"

Okay, then. We'll consider that a denial ... maybe.

As for Rihanna, she hosted a party at that same venue just two nights earlier. We have nothing funny or significant beyond that, just pointing it out.

She's also dating Matt Kemp, most likely.

He already took a big step in life by winning a playoff game (singular) this year. Could the Dallas Cowboys quarterback be stepping it up off the field too?

Rumors are swirling again that Tony Romo and Candice Crawford, who were linked last year, are not just dating again, but ready to walk down the aisle.

Back in December, Candice Crawford was spotted sporting something shiny and diamond-like on her finger, but colleagues shot down engagement rumors.

However, friends close to the Dallas power couple are now saying that Tony and Candice, sister of Gossip Girl star Chace, really are getting that serious.

Tony Romo is pumped about Candice Crawford. Deservedly so!

"Tony's ready to make the next step," a friend of the hunky QB tells E! about the cute former Miss Missouri and current Dallas-area sports journalist.

"They'll move in together," adds the sports (and relationship) insider, "because he's telling friends he's most likely going to pop the question... soon."

Whoa.

Perhaps Tony has learned from past, public courtships with Carrie Underwood and Jessica Simpson that he should keep things a bit more under wraps.

We applaud that ... as well as his taste in women. Well, looks-wise. Jessica was kinda painful by the end, which was a big reason why he dumped her.

Kate Gosselin sure refuses to go away is keeping herself busy.

The mother of eight has several gigs coming up, including a return stint on The View, as well as working on a her new TV show for former employer TLC.

Now sources report Kate is also set to release a new book on April 13, titled I Just Want You To Know: Letters To My Kids On Love, Faith And Family.

What exactly Kate has to offer the average person after the past year is anyone's guess. But it can certainly offer her own bank account some comfort.

The book will feature "prayers, excerpts from her personal journal and eight individual letters to each one of her children." Wow, she left out Jon?


Kate's next book will be titled Entomology of the Reverse Mullet.

"Each day the thought crosses my mind that when they get older, my kids are going to look back and think about how they were raised," Gosselin said in a statement.

"I know they will have questions about things that may not make sense because they were raised so unconventionally. I don’t want them to grow up and wonder."

Kate concluded: "I want them to know without a shadow of a doubt how much I love them and how much every sacrifice made was worth it for them."

Mmmyeah. Whatever helps you sleep better at night!

This will be the third book written by Kate. Her two previous works, Multiple Blessings and Eight Little Faces made it onto the New York Times bestseller list.

A new memoir by Jon Gosselin, Mediocre Girls: Memoirs of a Douchebag Bachelor's First Year of Freedom, is tentatively scheduled for a January 2011 release.

Gia Allemand is vying for Jake Pavelka's heart on The Bachelor, but she vied for men's attention in a different way when she posed for these racy Maxim pics!

It turns out Gia, one of Jake's final four remaining women this season on the reality show, wasn't kidding when she lists her profession as "swimsuit model."

Apparently, Gia Allemand stripped down for Maxim a few years ago after breaking up with her previous boyfriend, injury-proned MLB pitcher Carl Pavano.

Here's Pavano's previous "catcher" as you've never seen her ...

Gia Allemand Nude

Gia Allemand: Bachelor hopeful and major heart-stopper.

It's hard to say if Jake Pavelka is a lateral, downward or upward move from Carl Pavano, who probably went on the disabled list after seeing these photos.

Three things are beyond dispute here, however:

  1. This needs to come up during Gia's hometown date ... or else.
  2. Carl Pavano is a freaking idiot for (supposedly) cheating on Gia.
  3. Jake is a freaking idiot for (supposedly) choosing Vienna Girardi.

Facing a seven-figure breach of contract lawsuit, Jon Gosselin shockingly may allow TLC to film his children again ... if the network ceases legal action against him.

The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star pulled the plug on the show last fall, citing its "exploitation" of the kids, but really just out of bitterness toward TLC and Kate.

Jon Plus 4

He is staring at an expensive trial as TLC pursues its breach of contract case, claiming Jon Gosselin has cashed in illegally with his countless media appearances.

TLC has already won a preliminary injunction against Gosselin, prohibiting him from engaging in behavior that violates the non-compete clause in his contract.

In short, he's getting screwed, and not in a good, Morgan Christie way.

That being said, Jon is ready to make a deal, and he's playing the only chip he's got left - allowing them to film his children again in exchange for backing off.

This is pretty much our reaction when we see Jon, as well.

Don’t expect Jon & Kate Plus 8 Reloaded, though. A source with knowledge of the situation says the network will never welcome the douche back with open arms.

“You can be sure that if the kids come back to TLC it will be only with Kate, not with Jon," an insider dished. "And there’s no guarantee that will happen either.”

TLC is convinced they can make their new project with Kate work no matter what Jon, who's also on the hook for major child support he can't pay for now, does.

It is also possible that Kate Plus 8 could return as several specials, rather than a regular series. In any case, all the settlement talk is coming from Jon alone.

When you think about it, TLC has little reason to cave. Jon is barred from making money off TV quasi-fame and will likely lose his trial, set to begin this Spring.

Still, his lawyer Mark Heller vows: “You haven’t seen the last of Jon Gosselin.”

Sorry for that disappointing news. Don't shoot the messenger.

Tiger Woods just got sprung, and we don't mean in the way Rachel Uchitel used to ... forget it. He has officially left sex addiction rehab, according to reports.

His wife, Elin Nordegren Woods, flew to Hattiesburg, Miss., earlier this week, to be with him as he exited the Gentle Path program he had been enrolled in.

Elin and Charlie Woods

Elin and Tiger are flying out of Mississippi on Friday and are planning on spending some quality time alone as they attempt to repair their broken marriage.

There's been no official statement from the Woods camp on his release from rehab. Then again, there had never been an official statement on his entry.

Elsewhere on the Tiger Woods rumor mill:

He's supposedly returning to golf at the Accenture Match Play Championship this month. Ironic, since Accenture was the first company to cut ties with Tiger.

"We don't know anything official yet, but wouldn't that be nice?" Wade Dunagan, the executive director of the big PGA event, told the Arizona Daily Star.

"The main question is, 'Do I know anything you don't?' The answer is no. We're still in the dark. I can't confirm or deny anything, because I don't know."

PGA Tour spokesman Chris Reimer said as much, calling reports of the golfer's return merely "speculation." The Accenture event is February 17-21.

In the meantime, though, Tiger Woods' mistresses continue to garner massive amounts of media attention, albeit my increasingly ridiculous means.

Yesterday, porn star Joslyn James held a freaking press conference to voice displeasure over a company's decision to market a line of new golf balls.
