Most celebrities would probably politely decline an autograph request, or at least just ignore the person. Not, say, shoot them six times with an air gun.

That's what a lawsuit claims rapper Method Man did to a fan outside of a show in Houston, Texas, in November 2008. That would be pretty rough if so.

According to a lawsuit filed in court last week, Mary Anderson tried to get an autograph from Method Man after the show by handing him a ticket stub.

Anderson claims that's when Method "pulled out an air gun and ... began firing pellets." Anderson says that in the attack she was hit at least six times.

Hmm. Not very methodical, was he?

Method Man had no comment.

Method Man's real name? Clifford Smith. Real hard. No wonder he goes by Meth.

Elle Magazine recently became the latest in a long line of publications to put out a Jennifer Aniston sob story. Oh no, she's 40 and single. Cry for her!

Poor, lonely Jen. Seriously, does anyone think that celebrities in relationships right now won't get divorced, or that she truly can't find love after 40?

Overplayed as this angle is, Jennifer Aniston doesn't seem too bothered by it, although she says she is aware of what's whispered behind her back.

"I'm not going to ignore the pink elephant in the living room," the actress, tells the September issue of the fashion magazine. "It's fine. I can take it."

"If I'm the emblem for 'this is what it looks like to be the lonely girl getting on with her life,' so be it," says the actress, who was recently linked to Bradley Cooper following splits with Vince Vaughn, Paul Sculfor and John Mayer.

"I can make fun of myself. And I'll bring it up as long as the world is bringing it up," Aniston adds. "And I'm fully supportive of anybody who is in a place that's not their strongest [but] is ready to push forward."

Jennifer Aniston says that she has always used humor to get her through tough situations. Her folks made each other laugh "like nobody's business," she says.

"I put a lot of value in that at a very young age."

But that hasn't always easy.

Her father, soap opera star John (who has been a cast member on Days of Our Lives from 1985-present), left her mom, Nancy, when she was just nine.

Says the actress, "My dad walking out and not seeing him for a year and not knowing where he was ... Trying to understand, 'Where did that person go?'"

It explains so much. Only not at all.

These Rihanna-Chris-Brown rumors just won’t go away.

A UK celeb news magazine claims this afternoon that rather than what was described as a mere coincidence - when the two superstars both stayed at New York’s Trump International Hotel a few weeks back - they actually hooked up in the Big Apple.

Star reports that a hotel source saw them “canoodling” in her room (their word, not ours) and that they used decoy cars to "put off" the media in the process.

The magazine also claims exclusive quotes from Rihanna’s mom Monica Fenty, who is pretty upset that her daughter is supposedly back in Chris Brown’s arms.

“I’m devastated, but what can I do? Rihanna is her own woman with her own mind. Independent. Chris has a bizarre power over her," Fenty said (supposedly).

"She still loves him and he knows it. In her eyes he’s a god. Even after all this time, after what he did, it’s not diminished, no way,” she added (supposedly).

What he did, of course, was beat the $h!t out of her. But if you're a god, then you can pretty much do whatever you want and receive no jail time. Right?

Chris, who filled in for Drake at a Virginia Beach concert over the weekend, publicly apologized for the first time last month. The assault happened in February.

Rihanna has been seen out and about frequently, and has been linked to Drake (ironically). But rumors of her reconciliation with Chris have been heating up.

The conditions of Chris Brown’s plea bargain prevent him from coming within 50 yards of the singer, but does that even apply if both of them want to hit it?

Should Rihanna and Chris Brown get back together?

The son of Academy Award winner Michael Douglas has been arrested - and not for the first time - but Cameron Douglas has really outdone his drugged-out self.

Police say that the younger Douglas, 30, was in the middle of a deal to sell an eye-popping pile of crystal meth before he was snared by federal authorities.

The sometime-actor / sometime-DJ was busted back on July 28 at the Gansevoort Hotel in the Meatpacking District by a DEA task force, police sources report.

He'd been staying at the hotel for some time in a room rented by his dad. When the authorities barged in, they found the place a mess and Cameron "very strung out."

An informant had told the investigators that Cameron Douglas was the middle man in a deal to move a half-pound of crystal meth from California to New York to sell.

The drugs were intercepted before they got to New York.

Crystal methamphetamine sells for approximately $80 a gram - meaning Douglas had allegedly dealt about $18,000 worth. Not a small-time sentence, we'd guess.

Michael Douglas was informed and was "furious," a source said. A spokesman for Michael has not return calls for comment. Nor has the U.S. Attorney's Office.

As of this report, Cameron Douglas is still being held in custody.

In 2007, when the dude was still a n'er-do-well and not a full-fledged drug dealer, he was arrested with another man after being pulled over in Santa Barbara, Calif., with a bottle of liquid cocaine and a syringe in the car.

In 1999, when he was working as a DJ at the Tunnel club in Chelsea, he was busted buying cocaine with a gal pal from a drug dealer being tailed by cops.

Aside from getting arrested on drug charges, Cameron Douglas is best known for starring with his father and grandfather in 2003's It Runs in the Family.

The last time Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan hung out, the former was just starting to go bat$h!t insane, and was likely wearing no pants, while the latter was still interested in male anatomy, and none other than Paris Hilton was riding shotgun.

Paris was nowhere to be found Sunday night, but Lindsay, Britney and their matching blonde weaves met up at Full Frontal Disco (really) in L.A.'s Chinatown.

The last time these two went full frontal? Well, to be honest, it's been a good while for Britney. But Lindsay Lohan nude is sort of becoming a frequent thing.

Anyway, here are the two recovering train wrecks at the club ...

Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears

Two-thirds of the Ho Train reunites as Britney and Lindsay par-tay!

It looks like they were having a good time. We can only pray this night did not end with the second worst car ride ever. And that it wasn't a precursor to Britney being placed under a 5150 hold and Lindsay passing out face down on Samantha's lawn.

Now why would the late Michael Jackson's dermatologist want a say in how the King of Pop's three children - Paris, Prince and Blanket - are raised?

If you know what's already been rumored about Dr. Arnold Klein, it's not too hard to connect the dots here. A man's gotta look after his own offspring!

That hasn't been confirmed, of course. But acting on behalf of Dr. Arnold Klein, lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan made a surprise appearance in court Tuesday to express his client's concerns at the Michael Jackson custody hearing.

Kaplan said he was there to represent Klein's interest in the "education, health care and welfare" of Jackson's two eldest children, Prince Michael and Paris.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff, who awarded Katherine Jackson custody of the three children and agreed to visitation rights for Paris and Prince's biological mother Debbie Rowe, said that Klein had no standing to object.

Klein is said to be the biological father of the children. He has never denied this, saying only that he is not the father "to the best of my knowledge" and even admitting that he was a sperm donor "at some point" if not to Michael directly.

These Us photos show how close Dr. Arnold Klein was to Michael Jackson and his kids ... but was it more than a friendship? His court maneuver yesterday suggests so.

Arnold Klein had objected to Katherine being awarded custody as per Michael Jackson's last will. But later, the doctor said in a statement via his attorney that he does not have any problem with Katherine Jackson taking care of them.

According to Mark Vincent Kaplan and co-counsel Bradley P. Boyer:

"Arnold Klein is merely acting on promises he made to Michael with respect to ensuring the long-term health and stability of the children and their ability to enjoy as normal of a life out of the spotlight as could be reasonably possible."

"Dr. Klein has always had a special relationship with Paris and Prince, loves and cares deeply for these children and is looking out for their best interest."

"Dr. Klein has been involved with the children in sharing holidays and other special events and wishes to have the ability to continue his involvement as a very close associate of their father and offers his guidance and protection forever."

The judge said Klein can file court papers pertaining to his guardianship concerns, and his legal team says it plans to do just that on September 1.

So Kaplan essentially explained why Dr. Arnold Klein wants to stay in the mix without actually explaining anything. For about $500 per hour, too.

Do you think Arnold Klein is the children's biological father?

Blondes do have more fun ... - Britney

With these sage, powerful words, delivered via Twitter, queen Britney Spears has signaled her approval of the recent switch back to blonde hair she underwent.

She was seen sporting her new locks - as well as a possible engagement ring - having gone back to her roots (sort of literally) at a Beverly Hills salon Monday.

What do you think of the change? Does Britney look better as a blonde than with some of the other hairstyles and colors she's rocked in the recent past?

Tell us what you think in the survey below ...

It's a slow news week. Exhibit A? During yesterday's "Hot Topics" segment of The View, the panel got into a huge fight over none other than Cookie Monster.

Things got a bit testy as Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd discussed an upcoming healthy eating PSA on Sesame Street, in which Cookie Monster, the show's lovable, ravenous blue dessert fiend, is taught about the benefits of smart food choices.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and a polite, well-educated stalk of broccoli try to teach the Monster a lesson in dieting. But is this really necessary?

Sherri Shepherd thinks so, apparently blaming Cookie Monster for the poor dietary habits of our nation's youth. Whoopi's answer? "Bull! It's a puppet!"

Check out the all-important spat below ...

Call us crazy, but is Cookie Monster even fat? It looks to us like he balances out his love of tasty snacks with an exercise regimen. He can be a tad rude, yes, but who among us hasn't devoured a dessert and left a shower of crumbs in its wake?

It's all about moderation, kids. Why can't you have a cookie but not 73 in one sitting? Besides, all this will do is anger Cookie Monster. Before, he focused on the Cookie aspect; do you really want to be around when the Monster comes out?

And where does it stop? Will Oscar be put on Prozac? Will Elmo next be barred from speaking in the third person, to cure the country's self-centeredness?

Whose side are you on?

In other guest star news, Gossip Girl signed Tyra Banks to appear on the show this season, reportedly as a character in a faux movie starring Duff's character.

Is this a sign of the show getting more notoriety and credibility, or of jumping the shark? Should we see more of Blake Lively in low-cut tops instead?

What do you think, Gossip Girl fans?
