Former singer and current train wreck Amy Winehouse appeared in front of a judge in London and showed him her pink ballet shoes in an effort to show that at a petite 5'2" she could not have possibly punched a fan accusing her of doing so.

“I’m probably 5 feet 2 inches to 3 inches tall,” she said before rearranging her 8-inch black beehive hair and adding: “But my hair does make a difference.”

In one of her most bizarre public performances to date (and that is saying something), the Grammy-winning singer insisted she had not attacked Sherene Flash right after being asked to pose for a photograph at a charity summer ball.

Instead, Amy Winehouse, 25, claimed Sherene Flash, who is 5'7" and was wearing high-heeled boots, was drunk and being rude as she towered over her.

“Miss Flash came over and put her arm around me. She lent down. She’s taller than me. I had flat shoes on,” she said. “I had shoes on like this. In fact these are the very shoes I had on that night. Look, they don’t even have a heel.”

Amy Winehouse's tattoo of Blake Fielder-Civil's name is still visible. This is why you do not tattoo your drugged-up future ex-husband's name on your breast, kids.

The prosecution claims she acted with “deliberate and unjustifiable violence” towards Flash, a dancer who, like Winehouse, had performed at the Princes Trust charity ball in Berkeley Square, Mayfair, in Central London, last September.

Other dancers told Westminster Magistrates’ Court how Winehouse appeared to be either drunk or high on drugs during the altercation in a dressing room.

Wow, now that would have been a first.

Miss Flash said that after her performance she had been “tipsy” on champagne and had used the time to “network” or to take various celebrity photos.

This is Winehouse's first trip off the island of St. Lucia in ... well, that we can even remember. Her "vacation" has spanned late 2008 and all of this year.

A seemingly absurd rumor we reported last week that Norweigan-born Omer Bhatti, 25, is Michael Jackson’s secret son just got a little bit less absurd.

Omer Bhatti claims that Jackson fathered him after a one-night stand with his mother Pia. Yeah, right, we thought, but this has been lent credence by the revelation he sat with the family at the singer’s memorial service July 7.

Here is Bhatti in the front row ...

LOVE CHILD: Is this the secret son of Michael Jackson next to the late King of Pop's son Prince and his sister Rebbie Jackson at the memorial service? It sure looks like it.

Of course, this does not prove his relationship to Jackson. But when asked about his son’s appearance at the Staples Center event, Pia's husband Riz said:

“Yeah, yeah, I know all of this because I was watching. I told my wife. Just wait until the press see this. It’s not going to be a small thing.”

Presumably Riz is cool with the fact that MJ is Omer's dad.

Omer is believed to be in L.A. waiting to take a DNA test to prove whether or not he is Jackson’s son, and is spending time at the Jackson’s family home.

Related or not, Jackson did know him in some capacity since the '90s when he lived on and off at Neverland (weird in itself) and even toured with the singer.

Some say that Jackson claimed Omer Bhatti was his son, others say he just referred to him as that (as in a term of endearment) but it's not technically true.

Sources within the Jackson family inner circle are reportedly saying that if Katherine Jackson, Michael Jackson's mom, gets custody of his kids as per the late singer's will, Michael's big sister Rebbie Jackson will raise the children.

Maureen Reillette "Rebbie" Brown (née Jackson) is 59. She is the eldest of the nine children (Michael was the seventh) of Katherine and Joe Jackson.

She lives in Las Vegas with her husband of 40 (!) years.

Rebbie has always kept a low public profile - she has even been called the "forgotten" member of Jackson family - but privately she has been deeply involved in the lives of Michael's children, Paris, Prince Michael and Blanket.

Rebbie Jackson is currently living with Katherine at the family's Encino home and caring for the kids day-to-day. All three children are said to adore their aunt.

While the Jackson family is deeply divided on issues involving Michael's estate, there is supposedly no argument when it comes to Rebbie caring for the kids.

Whether she eventually becomes the custodial parent in name or not, she will be entrusted with the primary responsibility of raising Michael's three children.

Rebbie Jackson has three grown children, Stacee, 37, Yashi, 31, and Austin, 24. It sounds as if she might be a good person to care for Michael's kids too.

No word on whether they were trying to set a record for most douchebags at a single dinner table, but Jon Gosselin met up with Lindsay Lohan's father, Michael Lohan, in Southampton Wednesday night. Yes, we are quite serious.

With Jon were Kate Major, the celebrity gossip reporter (for Star) who he was seen having dinner with earlier this week, and Real Housewives star Jill Zarin.

Obviously.

"Jon is a friend, he's a great guy, he needed a place to get away to, and my doors were open to him and Kate Major," said Michael Lohan, who's apparently doing better after threatening to kill his fiancee and himself in May.

"Jon and Kate [Major] are good friends of mine. She's with him [at Lohan's house]. Kate's like a daughter to me. When she needs a place my doors are open."

"Jon is a really nice guy. All he does is to talk about his kids," Lohan says, adding that Kate Major "only has his best interests at heart."

Jon G.

We definitely did not see this bromance coming.

The strange foursome reportedly met the mayor of Southampton, N.Y., for dinner. Gosselin and Major have been in Southampton together for three days now.

Is there something romantic going on there?

Gosselin and Major were first spotted together at NYC eatery Accademia di Vino over this past weekend. Some say she "was flirting shamelessly with Jon" at the Italian restaurant, but they are believed to be just friends. We think.

Jon has been dating 22-year-old stoner family friend Hailey Glassman since splitting with wife Kate Gosselin earlier this year. Maybe you heard about that.

Michael Jackson's nutritionist, Cherilyn Lee, has been subpoenaed as the police and DEA try to hunt down the singer's medical records, the AP reports.

Los Angeles County Coroner's officials paid a visit to Cherilyn Lee's Inglewood, Calif., office on Wednesday, her spokeswoman, Belinda Foster, confirms.

The news comes hours after the Drug Enforcement Administration and homicide detectives raided the office of Jackson's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray.

Authorities entered Murray's Houston office thanks to a search warrant that states the doctor is under suspicion and may be looking at manslaughter charges.

Her spokeswoman says she's cooperating fully with investigators, and a subpoena was only necessary because the records are protected by law.

Cherilyn Lee treated Jackson between January and April.

She has alleged the singer asked for Diprivan, the brand name for Propofol, a powerful anesthetic administered via IV, for help sleeping. The drug is central to the investigation of Jackson's death by cardiac arrest on June 25.

Jackson's longtime dermatologist, Dr. Arnold Klein (the biological father of the singer's eldest children, Prince, 12, and Paris, 11, depending on what you read), was served a subpoena by an L.A. County Coroner official on July 14.

Bar Refaeli has replaced Brazilian beauty Gisele Bundchen as the new face for the young contemporary brand, Rampage. It's hard to argue with either choice.

“The Rampage line is comfortable. The cuts are very feminine," Bar said. "It fits perfectly to the curves of a woman. I have curves and I feel really good in it!”

Truly, who are we to argue with such a strong point as that.

Ads like this make you wanna go all Rampage Jackson ...

Bar Refaeli for Rampage. We know. You are not reading this.

Lake Bell is an actress of some kind. We're sure she's really good and all, but we cannot recall anything she's been in off the top of our heads right now.

Not that it matters, because we're here to talk about the Lake Bell nude pictures shot by actor Scott Caan (son of James) for his new book of photographs.

Scott's book features the Lake Bell pictures below, as well as many other photos of celebrities such as Lindsay Lohan. Way to aim high there, Scott Caan.

Anyway, check out the glory that is Lake Bell nude below ...

Next Monday on the season finale of The Bachelorette, Jillian Harris finally makes her choice. Ed Swiderski and Kiptyn Locke are the last men standing.

Except for the ousted Reid Rosenthal, who - Bachelorette spoiler alert - looks poised to return and possibly propose to Jillian in a surprising twist.

The promo that ran after this week's "The Men Tell All" show - at which Reid was MIA - shows him returning to Hawaii for another shot at Jillian.

What does Jillian say about who returns and what happens?

"I can't really tell you too much," Jillian tells ET. "I watched the tease for the finale, and I can tell you it is an exciting episode and a crazy day. I can't tell you who comes back, but it is all very traumatic, unfortunately."

Traumatic? That doesn't sound good. Nor do some of her other comments. Maybe she is just a good bluffer, but Jillian Harris makes no reference to being engaged, or even being in a relationship with a great guy or anything like that.

Again, she could be playing it cool. But it's only about "her decision."

Jillian's Decision

"All I can say is that after all the drama is over, and I make ONE LAST FINAL decision, I hope you all are as thrilled with the outcome as I am," she wrote in her last blog. "You have no idea how excited I am to let this secret out!!!"

Then: "I struggled with a lot of decisions. Again, I admit that I’m human. But I stand by my statement that I am very happy. I have had two months living with my decisions and am still very happy with them. That is what matters right?"

Get the feeling she is pulling a Brad Womack here?

Jillian even admits having second thoughts about getting engaged, and she talks to her dad about it. He told her that accepting a proposal from the man of her choice did not mean that she has to walk down the aisle immediately.

He pointed out to Jillian, "Getting a proposal in this scenario signifies for me that you are ready. Let's have a proposal, get engaged and start a life together and a year from now see where things are at and then get married."

"My dad was very right," Jillian adds.

That said, Jillian does rate the final three men:

"I would definitely have to say for Reid, it would be his sense of humor and just his quirkiness. Kiptyn is just so genuine and has such a huge heart."

"With Ed, I would have to say it is his balance. He has a good balance in life between personal, business and family. He is a well-rounded individual."

What do you think? Is this all a smoke screen, or does Jillian Harris not pick anyone at all? Who, if anyone, will win The Bachelorette?

Kelis gave birth to baby Knight, her first with estranged husband Nas, on Tuesday in Los Angeles. Knight has been born into a rather nasty divorce battle.

The new parents, who wed in January 2005 after a two-year engagement but filed for divorce in April, have already begun duking out financial battles in court.

Britney, Sean

Kelis is seeking child support, major spousal support and legal fees from her hip-hop mogul hubby who once ruled her world. And that of rap, you could argue.

She says he makes $11 million a year and wants half. He says he is only sort of rich these days, pulling in around $140,000 a month. The recession hurts.

Kelis is officially an estranged, single, kind of broke baby mama!

There were some rumors of an alleged Kelis sex tape sending Nas over the edge, but last month, Kelis vented on Twitter about Nas' infidelities.

"This lovely day I would like to touch on cheaters. Super brief! Why be cowardly why not go after what you really want," the oddball Tweeted.

"All the scum bag husbands and less than impressive sluts unite! You can go down in flames together. I am here to say the husband is way more at fault."

That about covers it. Thank you Kelis.

Either Ben Roethlisberger accuser Andrea McNulty has painted a disturbing picture of the two-time Super Bowl winner, or she has a very active imagination.

The Nevada hotel employee accusing the Pittsburgh Steelers star of raping her last year says that she told him to stop but the football player refused.

She also alleges that she tried to report the sexual assault, but was shut down by her bosses who downplayed it and threatened her job if she spoke out.

There is also the question of the mental state of Andrea McNulty, who has been treated for PTSD, insomnia, anxiety and depression since the incident.

Is this a byproduct of what happened with Roethlisberger? Or, on the flip side, did her condition lead her to embellish what happened with the NFL star?

Below is the timeline of events, according to the plaintiff's lawsuit.

Once again, this is only Andrea McNulty's side of the story. Ben Roethlisberger denies any contact that wasn't consensual took place at any point ...

March 2003: Andrea McNulty begins work as a desk clerk at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe casino and is promoted steadily, becoming executive casino host by February 2008.

July 2008: Ben Roethlisberger checks in at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe to play in the NBC American Century Celebrity Golf Tournament on or about this date; McNulty is introduced to the Steelers quarterback by a butler there.

July 10, 2008: Ben has casual conversation with her about fly fishing.

July 11, 2008: Roethlisberger asks Andrea McNulty to come to his room to fix his TV. She obliges, cannot find anything wrong with it, and tries to leave, only to have him (allegedly) sexually assault her despite her protests.

July 12, 2008: McNulty tells hotel security chief Guy Hyder about the rape. Hyder dismisses her claims and makes some pretty crude remarks about them.

August 2008: McNulty is told that Harrah’s president John Koster will fire her if she "starts rumors" about Roethlisberger. McNulty falls into deep depression.
