Will Chaz Bono die young because he became a man?

That's the implication of a story in the National Enquirer. One that has him threatening to sue, claiming the article is a "smear campaign" and "blatantly false."

The "story" is plastered right on cover of the November 11 issue with a headline that screams, "Chaz Bono: ONLY 4 YEARS TO LIVE." Pretty overt, and awful.

The article cites "expert" opinions about Chaz's weight, stress and medication linked with gender reassignment, concluding he'll likely kick it by 2015.

Chaz Bono Will Die

The Dancing With the Stars cast member, understandably, is royally pissed, and has fired off a letter demanding a retraction and apology for this ASAP.

In the letter, Chaz's lawyer calls the story, "blatantly false and defamatory," not to mention "salacious and inflammatory," and "crafted for the malicious purpose of discriminating against our client's gender and sexual orientation."

Enraged over the "misleading and blatantly false" medical "opinions," his lawyer says if the tabloid does not retract the story pronto, Chaz Bono will sue.

Your move, Enquirer.

Jeremy Mayfield, the former NASCAR star who was suspended indefinitely in 2009 for various drug offenses, has reportedly been arrested for possession of meth.

Mayfield, 42, got popped on Tuesday at his western North Carolina home and charged with possession of methamphetamine, according to The Associated Press.

Records from the Catawba County Sheriff’s Office indicate that he was charged with possessing 1.5 grams of meth. Here's Jeremy Mayfield's mug shot ...

The former Pocono 500 winner posted $3,000 bond and was scheduled to appear in district court on Wednesday, and he may face other charges as well.

Officials tell the AP that approximately $100,000 worth of merchandise from businesses in neighboring Lincoln County was found in Mayfield’s home.

The items found included welding equipment, truck parts and various other items that were reported stolen. He denies this - and the meth possession.

Daniel Marin, Mayfield’s D.C.-based attorney said that the search of his client’s home was made on a “baseless allegation,” and he is denying all charges.

Mayfield showed promise in his early racing career but was suspended in 2009 when NASCAR said he tested positive for meth from a random drug test.

In Touch Weekly did not get the memo: This is Kim Kardashian divorce week among supermarket tabloids.

But the publication had an alleged bombshell of its own to run in place of anonymous quotes about the end of Kim's marriage: Demi Moore cheated on Ashton Kutcher with 27-year old actor Ben Hollingsworth.

Demi Moore Affair Story

Insiders tell the magazine that Moore met Hollingsworth soon after he relocated from Canada to Los Angeles. She proceeded to introduce him around, eventually helping him land a role in The Beautiful Life, a very short-lived series on The CW produced by... Kutcher!

"They smoked a lot of weed," a source randomly says about Hollingsworth's days partying with friends at Demi and Ashton's house.

Troubled star Lindsay Lohan will be calling a jail cell home for a bit.

Appearing in court today to face the wrath of Judge Stephanie Sautner, she was sentenced to 30 days behind bars for repeatedly violating her probation.

Hoping for mercy, Lohan admitted she violated probation by not attending therapy and getting kicked out of community service at the Downtown Women's Center.

The judge was unmoved, so off to jail the train wreck goes ... again.

  • Lindsay Lohan, Short Curly Hair
  • Lindsay Lohan, Polka Dot Dress

Lindsay Lohan will trade in this polka dot dress for an orange jumpsuit.

Sautner has her on a tight leash to ensure she completes that probation, too - all of her community service must now be done at the L.A. County Morgue.

She must put in more than 30 full days at the morgue between now and March, or else she'll pay. As the judge put it, Lindsay holds the keys to a jail cell.

Lindsay must adhere to a tight structure or have a warrant put out for her arrest. If that happens, she'll be serving AN ADDITIONAL 270 DAYS in jail.

As for the 30 days Lindsay got today, Sautner made it clear that there will be none of the house arrest nonsense we saw however. There will be a cell.

The Sheriff's Dept. says due to overcrowding, she may be let out after serving as little as 20 percent of that sentence, but that's still six days minimum.

LiLo, who was also told to quit tweeting about life at the morgue, walked out of court saying, "Thank God," under her breath. It could be a lot worse.

What do you think of Lindsay Lohan's punishment?

Justin Bieber has set a record by garnering over two billion hits on his YouTube channel. But all it takes is one mistake to make all that popularity go away.

The latest issue of Star Magazine alleges that the 17-year made that mistake with a young woman named Mariah Yeater.

The tabloid reports that Yeater, 20, had sex with Bieber after a concert in Los Angeles last year. She then gave birth to his child three months ago and has filed a paternity lawsuit against the superstar.

In response, Justin's reps have issued the following statement:

"While we haven't yet seen the lawsuit, it's sad that someone would fabricate malicious, defamatory, and demonstrably false claims. We will vigorously pursue all available legal remedies to defend and protect Justin against these allegations."

If Yeater's claim is proven true, it would give a whole new meaning to the title of Bieber's biggest hit.

Dr. Conrad Murray's defense received yet another blow Monday when his most important witness was held in contempt of court and fined $1,000.

Charged with involuntary manslaughter in the June 2009 death of Michael Jackson, Murray sought the help of Dr. Paul White, an expert in anesthesia.

White repeatedly violated court orders to by testifying about his private conversations with Murray, however, and the judge came down on him hard.

"Quite frankly, this constitutes direct contempt of court," Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael E. Pastor told White, the defense team's final witness.

White told the jury he believes that Jackson took extra doses of two drugs, including the powerful anesthetic Propofol, while Murray's back was turned.

White suggested on Monday that while he thinks Michael Jackson killed himself, it wasn't a suicide attempt and MJ didn't know the "potential danger."

Monday marked the second time Pastor held White in contempt – the first was October 21, when White called a member of the prosecution a vulgarity.

Yesterday's sanction was ordered after an intense exchange between White and D.A. David Walgren, who grilled him about Murray's medical decisions.

GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain denied allegations of sexual harassment Monday following a report that he treated two women inappropriately in the 1990s.

A report, which first surfaced in Politico, suggested that Cain had sexually harassed two female subordinates while he chaired the National Restaurant Association.

In an interview with PBS' Newshour, Cain was asked if there was any behavior on his part that may have been considered inappropriate. The businessman answered:

"In my opinion, no. But, as you would imagine, it's in the eye of the person who thinks that maybe I crossed the line."

"I worked for the Department of the Navy, the Coca-Cola company, Pillsbury, Burger King, Godfather's Pizza. Years and years and years of working in the business environment working around men, women, all types of people."

"Never, never have I been accused of any sort of sexual harassment. I have never sexually harassed anyone. This false allegation to now come up is kind of baffling."

Herman Cain, a former pizza company CEO, headed the association from 1996-99. The women later left the group after reaching undisclosed financial settlements.

J. Crew president Jenna Lyons' divorce from Vincent Mazeau has been playing out in the tabloids, with conflicting reports about just what transpired between them.

Specifically, when Jenna began dating Courtney Crangi.

"They met at a fashion event several years ago ... at least three years ago ... and became friends," a source close to them told People. "They got together this summer after Jenna Lyons' [nine-year] relationship [with Mazeau] ended."

The source also emphasized that the Lyons-Crangi relationship "absolutely" did not break up the Lyons' marriage. A Mazeau source, however, says otherwise.

Jenna Lyons, Husband

The insider close to the fashion icon says Jenna Lyons and Vincent Mazeau still live together in their Brooklyn brownstone for the sake of their son, Beckett.

"They separated two years ago, and Jenna went through several months of trying to work it out. But two years later their problems got worse and worse."

A source close to Mazeau takes issue with that perspective, however.

"Like most marriages, they had their share of ups and downs over the years, but despite what's been reported in the press, they were not split before Jenna and Courtney began their relationship," the Mazeau source says emphatically.

For the record: Taylor Swift is NOT posing topless anywhere on the Internet. That much is certain.

Over the weekend, however, a site desperate for traffic photoshopped a picture to make it look - to the REALLY untrained eye - as if the singer were propped on her bed, shirt off, smile on her face.

Protective of her reputation, Swift has fired off a letter demanding the site remove the image.

As of this writing, though, it remains live on a URL that bills itself as a "holy Muslim celebrity gossip site" and which has "jihad" in the name. Seriously, it's not even worth linking to. We're not gonna give the owners the pleasure.

Just rest assured, readers, that any headline you see that screams TAYLOR SWIFT TOPLESS is a lie. Thank you.

Not a great stretch for Terrell Owens these days.

The former NFL great wore out his welcome with the league and wasn't asked to any tryouts this fall. Then he possibly tried to off himself by OD-ing last week.

Now, dude's battling child support woes as well.

Owens, Terrell

Terrell Owens' rep says he should be paying less in child support to baby mama Monique Reynolds than back in the days when he, you know, got paid a lot.

Owens wants a judge reduce the payments he's making, and for them to "mirror his income today and not be based on income from over four years ago."

T.O. was due in court in Northern California for a child support hearing on October 24, but he did not show up. Lawyers for Reynolds wouldn't reschedule.

The former Pro Bowl wide receiver's audition for prospective NFL teams was the next day. No one showed up to that one either ... besides T.O. that is.

Here's hoping we won't hear another Terrell Owens 911 call this week.
