Alexis Cohen, who was ridiculed by Simon Cowell and termed the Green Goblin during auditions for American Idol, was killed on the New Jersey shore Saturday.

According to the The Asbury Park Press, Alexis Cohen, 25, was apparently struck and killed by a car in what authorities are calling an apparent homicide.

Deputy Chief Michael Mohel of the Ocean County Prosecutors Office reports that an autopsy revealed that the Allentown, Pa., passed away after suffering severe chest, abdominal and closed head injuries as a result of the collision.

Authorities are currently conducting an investigation into Alexis Cohen's death, asking anyone with information on the hit and run to speak up.

Alexis Cohen provided one of American Idol's most colorful tryouts.

Cohen rose to reality stardom after her 2007 American Idol audition resulted in a showdown with Cowell, who likened her to the Spider-Man character.

Alexis responded with a bird-flipping rant, in which she claimed to "march to the beat of a different drummer" while vowing to "leave with [her] dignity."

Resilient, she returned to audition in 2008. Again, she was shown the door.

Don't know why Kimberly Wyatt is? That's because Nicole Scherzinger is, like, the only focus of the Pussycat Dolls, and the other Dolls are not pleased.

One by one, Nicole is being assailed by her fellow Dolls line up to complain about how she gets all the press, the fans' attention and blah blah blah blah.

Topless Nicole Scherzinger

We didn't realize she got that much, but hey. If Kimberly Wyatt is jealous and wants to rant about wanting celebrity gossip attention, more power to her.

“There has always been a lot of focus on Nicole which has been hard to deal with sometimes," Wyatt said. "Every video and stage performance we’ve done."

"Nicole has been our leader, and I wasn’t in videos like I wanted and wasn’t seen in the way I was hoping, which has been the same for the other girls too.”

PUSSYCAT FIGHT: Kimberly Wyatt is hating on Nicole Scherzinger.

Mixing in a strange restaurant metaphor, she add: “I don’t make any of the decisions, I’m in the group and can voice my opinions but at the end of the day it is a business. There are a lot of chefs in the kitchen that run the Pussycat Dolls.”

We would do a poll asking you to choose which of these mediocre singers you side with, but no one knows who Kimberly Wyatt is or cares much about Nicole.

Well, except for ogling Nicole Scherzinger nude. Some peeps are into that.

Michael Jackson's rumored love child, Omer Bhatti, has revealed how the star made him his "honorary" son after inviting him to move in with him years ago.

Omer Bhatti, 25, hails from Norway, and lived at Neverland ranch for eight years. Rumors say Jackson fathered him during a one-night stand with his mom, Pia.

But he says there is no biological link between them, despite the rumors that he is Jackson's secret son. He says the music legend was just his "best friend."

Omer, who still lives in Norway, reveals that Jackson used to say that he was "like a son" to him and thinks that must be the reason for the love child rumors.

Confiding in a close friend from Oslo, Omer Bhatti said: “Michael Jackson is not my father. He and I were just very, very close. He was my best friend.”

Omer was a guest of honor at Jackson’s memorial service in L.A. two weeks ago – sitting along with the pop legend’s closest relatives in the front row.

“Michael always used to say I was like a son to him,” he said. “But my true parents are in Norway. The reason I was asked to sit with his family at the memorial service is because I was Michael’s closest friend – not because I am his son.”

Bhatti also confided in a girl pal: “Michael was such a special person to me and I cannot believe he is gone, I am in total shock. I have lost weight because I cannot eat anything. All I can think about is how Michael died.”

Omer Bhatti says he moved to Neverland Ranch in 1996 after Michael Jackson met him and his parents in Tunisia where 12-year-old Omer had been on holiday.

Jackson was so taken with Omer, who he dubbed "Little Michael," that he had the adolescent boy, his mother, father and sister move to L.A. with him immediately.

Michael gave Omer’s mum Pia a job as a nanny for his son Prince Michael and employed dad Huayoun as a driver. Meanwhile, he and Omer grew very, very close.

Another of Omer’s friends, Ricky Harlow, also reveals how Omer’s bond with Jackson grew so strong that he shared the star’s bed – while his family stayed in a cottage in a different part of the sprawling Neverland complex.

Amazingly, the sleepovers took place at a time when Michael Jackson was still reeling from allegations that he had molested 13-year-old Jordan Chandler.

When paramedics arrived at Michael Jackson's house, he was already dead and it took them a while to even realize the victim was the music icon, new reports say.

Jackson was flatlined when the paramedics arrived shortly after noon PST on June 25. There was no electrical activity in Michael's heart and no sign of life.

Michael Jackson Autopsy Findings

Paramedics wanted to pronounce him dead at the scene but Dr. Conrad Murray, Jackson's personal physician, insisted the singer be transported to the hospital.

As a higher medical authority than the EMTs, Dr. Conrad Murray had the power to overrule them. So it went and EMT personnel could not "call it" at his home.

Paramedics didn't realize for nearly 10 minutes the victim was Michael Jackson. As one emergency worker put it: "It just looked like a frail, old, sickly man."

Meanwhile, law enforcement sources continuing to investigate Conrad Murray say he kept a stash of drugs - including the powerful anesthesia Propofol, which they think stopped Michael Jackson's heart - hidden in his closet.

Sources say when the LAPD first searched Jackson's home the night he died, they did not turn up Propofol or many of the other drugs that were in his house.

Dr. Murray talked to the LAPD the following Saturday and the incriminating statements he supplied triggered another, broader search warrant, police are saying.

Cops returned to the house the next Monday and found "various drugs" clandestinely stashed in a closet of the guest room where Dr. Conrad Murray stayed.

Dr. Murray himself apparently told detectives about the closet when interviewed, triggering the search and ultimately a manslaughter investigation against him.

A law enforcement source tells TMZ that "The drugs were concealed... they weren't obvious." Among the stash - Propofol, the drug they believe killed Jackson.

We love Kendra Wilkinson.

Anyone else her age (24), and with her current career resume (posing naked), we would likely mock for writing a memoir. But we just can't with her.

"I feel like the luckiest girl in the world," she says in a statement released by publisher Simon Spotlight Entertainment, who will publish K-Dubs' book.

"I have a husband I adore, a baby on the way, and my memoir is going to be published!" Best of all, you can read her thoughts and not have to listen to her laugh!

The book - scheduled to hit stores next summer - will explore Wilkinson's childhood, her Playboy years (including her romance with Hugh Hefner), her time with The Girls Next Door and Kendra, and newlywed life with NFL star Hank Baskett.

"The memoir will be a humorous, relatable, fish-out-of-water tale capturing the spirit of one of the most beloved Playboy models in history," says the release.

Adds Jennifer Bergstrom of Simon Spotlight Entertainment: "Kendra Wilkinson is so genuine and funny that her memoir is sure to be unique and refreshing."

"It will be a reflection of the woman so many people have fallen in love with."

No word on whether any vintage Kendra Wilkinson nude shots will be in it.

Jon Gosselin may have been seen with Kate Major lately, but he says he is a one-woman man. That one woman is Hailey Glassman, of course, not his wife Kate.

"My heart is always with Hailey," the d-bag father of eight told Us Weekly at the 2009 Mercedes-Benz Polo Challenge at Blue Star Jets field in Bridgehampton, N.Y.

Hello? Major Douchebag Here

Hailey Glassman, 22, is the daughter of the plastic surgeon who performed Kate Gosselin's free tummy tuck, as depicted on Jon & Kate Plus 8. The irony.

Jon and Hailey have been hitting it for a little while now, and went public on a romantic trip to St. Tropez. But then he sparked controversy with a couple of appearances with Kate Major in New York and in the Hamptons the following week.

She said they were dating. This was news to Hailey.

Gosselin says rumors of him being romantically involved with Major are lies and that dating multiple women is "not me." One woman while still married? All good.

Kate Major resigned from her job as a reporter at Star, citing a conflict of interest for "falling for him." Jon says they are just friends and Kate Major is a liar.

In any case, Jon Gosselin has been hanging out with Lindsay Lohan's father, Michael, in Southampton for the past week. Talk about good for your image.

Yesterday afternoon, the troubled tandem went shopping at J.Crew, where Gosselin spent a hefty $423.05 on T-shirts, flip flops and boxer shorts.

Kate Major was not present.

Hey, as depressing as it is that Nadya Suleman is getting a f*%king reality show, there are a couple of silver linings if you are willing to look hard enough:

  • At least the jobless drain on society will be making some money and paying taxes to the broke state of California for the first time in memory.
  • She can't possibly screw up and scar her children for life worse than Kate and Jon Gosselin already have. The bar has officially been lowered!

Even better, Octomom's 14 children (yes, she had six prior to the octuplets) are going to be earning $250 a day for a total of $250,000 over three years.

The British production company handling the show will pay the kids each the same rate: $125,000 collectively for 36 days of shooting in the first year; $75,000 for 21 days in the second year; and $50,000 for 14 days the third year.

According to the Octomom reality show contract, 15 percent of the children's earnings will be placed in a trust account, as required by California law, that none of them will have access to until he or she is 18 or legally emancipated.

So as soon as they can speak and ask for a lawyer.

Octomom is ready to ruin her kids' lives even more than she already has. Although, on the flip side, how much worse can it get? [Photo: PacificCoastNewsOnline.com]

The as-yet untitled series, due to start shooting September 1, is said to be less of a day-to-day intrusion look at the huge, burdensome family's life and more of a documentary-style show focusing on milestones in the children's lives.

No word on how Gloria Allred feels about this. We just hope there are ample Crooked Houses plugs and that Nadya Suleman starts wearing a Bluetooth headset.

Former Miss California Carrie Prejean, who gained great notoriety earlier this year before being dethroned, is known for hurting people when opening her mouth.

But until now, she has inflicted purely emotional duress.

The noises the beauty queen recently made into a mic at a horserace in Del Mar, Calif., took her painfulness to a new level, though. Good thing it wasn't a talent show.

Here's Carrie Prejean making ears bleed ...

All we can say is 1. Thank goodness Carrie is merely writing a tell-all memoir instead of a debut CD, and 2. Please don't ever attempt to sing, Tami Farrell.

Months after rumors arose that LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian were having an affair, the country singer says she has separated from her husband, Dean Sheremet.

"LeAnn and Dean have been separated for quite some time now, but they are continuing to try and work through their relationship," a Rimes pal says.

The couple married in 2002, when she was only 19.

News of Rimes and Sheremet's split comes days after Eddie Cibrian's wife, Brandi Glanville, said they were splitting - because of his affair with LeAnn Rimes.

"Eddie is a devoted, loving father first and foremost and the speed bump he and Brandi are experiencing needs to be worked out privately," his manager said.

Eddie Cibrian, who is joining the cast of C.S.I. Miami this fall, denied he was having an affair with Rimes, his co-star in the Lifetime movie Northern Lights.

No one had confirmed they were romantically involved until Glanville's statement earlier this week, even though video footage made it kind of obvious.

In March, a Rimes friend confirmed the singer and Dean Sheremet were having problems in their marriage, but maintained Cibrian was "not the cause," and that "there have been issues brewing for months prior to meeting Eddie on set."

The estranged couple's Nashville home is currently on the market for $7.45 million. Click to enlarge more LeAnn Rimes and Dean Sheremet pictures ...

Bar Refaeli seems to be quickly moving on with life after her recent breakup - which apparently actually did take place - with Leonardo DiCaprio.

The Israeli supermodel was spotted partying with Brazilian polo player and entrepreneur Ricardo Mansur in the French Riviera town of Saint-Tropez.

Ricardo Mansur's playboy credentials are impeccable: his former flames reportedly include model Isabeli Fontana and none other than Gisele Bundchen.

Bar Refaeli, who graced the cover of this year's Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, was seen laughing, taking photos and drinking a beer with Mansur.

Is Ricardo Mansur dating Bar Refaeli?

The new sighting comes just one month after Refaeli and Leonardo DiCaprio, who had been an item for nearly three years, decide to call it quits in June.

At the time, a source close to the model was quoted saying "She wanted to move faster than he did – she wanted to move in together. So he broke it off."

He's clearly crazy if so. Check out these Bar Refaeli pics. Honestly.
