Chad Johnson’s arrest for domestic battery is making headlines, but an alleged friend of his says it's not the first violent episode between them.

"Chad didn't like [Evelyn Lozada]'s party lifestyle and it made his anger worsen,” the source added. “He hated the way she acted on [Basketball Wives]."

"He would often lash out at her for any little thing."

The turmoil may have been a long time coming for Chad, whose subsequent release by the Miami Dolphins was even filmed for HBO's Hard Knocks.

Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson, Evelyn Lozada

Johnson’s pal says that Evelyn Lozada filing for divorce from Johnson just 41 days after they tied the knot does not come as a surprise.

"Chad and Evelyn's marriage was volatile in nature and a mistake from the start,” the friend said, adding that epic fights were almost the norm.

"He [Chad] went off the scale at her once because he was tired of having Evelyn's friends, like her assistant and stuff, living in his house."

The Johnsons' friend also says a group of pals close to the couple were beginning to get very concerned for Lozada’s safety and well-being.

"She told me Chad threatened to kill her one time and that was really a red flag," Radar Online (we know) quotes the insider as alleging.

Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine says President Barack Obama somehow "staged" the recent Colorado shooting as part of a conspiracy to ban guns. Seriously.

In comments that may put even Ted Nugent to shame, Dave suggested that Obama was behind the massacre perpetrated by James Holmes ... and a lot more.

At a Tuesday, August 7 performance in Singapore, Mustaine told the crowd, "Back in my country, my president ... he's trying to pass a gun ban."

"So he's staging all of these murders, like the 'Fast And Furious' thing down at the border ... Aurora, Colorado, all the people that were killed there ... and the beautiful people at the [Wisconsin Sikh temple]."

The rocker continued, "I don't know where I'm gonna live if America keeps going the way it's going because it looks like it's turning into Nazi America."

One major hole in Mustaine's "theory" (besides basic facts): Obama has not made any push for gun control in the wake of these tragedies.

The short-lived marriage of Evelyn Lozada and Chad Johnson came to an end yesterday in the aftermath of his arrest for domestic violence.

Her discovery of a receipt for condoms, alleged head-butting and 911 call may have been the final straw, but the die was cast long ago.

Chad Johnson (formerly) Ochocinco has been accused of cheating in the past, and now Beverly Shiner, 30, claims she was a participant in said activity.

From January-May of THIS YEAR, with Evelyn elbow-deep in wedding plans.

After first making contact by following him on Twitter, Shiner claims he sent his number in a personal message, inviting her to dinner.

"I Googled him before we met and saw he was engaged, but at the time there were reports that she had broken it off because she thought he was cheating, so I assumed they had broken up," she told Radar, presumably without irony.

It became clear she still lived at his home, however.

"While I was there, he called Evelyn and asked if she could order a pizza to be delivered for him, and even had her pay for it," Shiner said. "I thought it was odd and I wondered if she was really his fiancee or just a secretary."

She's not his fiancee anymore, having filed for divorce yesterday. Chad apologized in a statement to his fans, while wishing Evelyn well.

Shiner, herself a mother of two, revealed that she still railed Chad that night in January ... and more than a few more times in the ensuing months.

The founder and CEO of Crocs shoes was arrested for DUI last weekend, and reportedly told police that they could go "f*%k" themselves "in the ass." 

George Boedecker also revealed in his drunken stupor that he's currently dating Taylor Swift ... a revelation that's probably news to Conor Kennedy.

Boulder, Colo., police responded Saturday to a call about a man who was "drunk as crap" and passed out in front of his 2010 Porsche Panamera.

George Boedecker Mug Shot

The man, 51-year-old Boedecker, told officials he just pulled over to take a nap ... then that his girlfriend was driving. And that she's "batsh*t crazy."

Asked about the girlfriend, George told police she's a really f*%king famous” singer ... then asked officers if they were "familiar with Taylor Swift."

When asked for his address, Boedecker reportedly replied, "I have 17 f*%king homes." Apparently the man has sold a lot of hole-filled sandals.

Police proceeded to arrest him for DUI, at which point Boedecker said he "knew his f*cking rights" ... and told cops to "Go f*%k yourselves in the ass."

George, who the Smoking Gun claims was wearing flip flops at the time, concluded that the cops had made an "enemy for life" and would "f*%king die."

Wow. This story is almost as embarrassing as people over age 7 wearing Crocs.

Move over, Robert Pattinson. Make room at the bar for Anderson Cooper.

The CNN anchor may need to drown his sorrows in a few suds, following the publication of a few photos that certainly make it look like Ben Maisani has gone all Kristen Stewart on his live-in boyfriend.

Anderson Cooper at the Daytime Emmys

The Daily Mail has posted shots of Maisani locking lips with an unidentified brunette in Grand Central Park. They were reportedly taken this past week and follow rumors that the journalist was hoping to marry his loved one as soon as Labor Day.

Cooper and Maisani - who owns the bar Eastern Bloc in Manhattan's East Village - have been together for approximately three years. They live together in Cooper's NYC townhouse.

Last month, following years of speculation, Cooper came out as gay in one of the classiest, most well-written statements we've read yet on this issue.

Chad Johnson (formerly Chad Ochocinco) was arrested last night for domestic violence. The alleged victim was his wife, Basketball Wives' Evelyn Lozada.

The NFL star is accused of head-butting Lozada during an argument.

Police arrived at the scene to find her with lacerations on her forehead; Lozada went to the hospital for treatment. Crazy. So what started the incident?

Chad Johnson (Ochocinco) Mug Shot

According to TMZ, the fight started over condoms in Chad's car. Seriously.

Evelyn Lozada apparently found a receipt for them (not sure which brand or what size) in the couple's Maserati and confronted him about it.

An argument broke out and Chad head-butted Evelyn. The football star reportedly told the cops he butted heads with his wife by accident.

Johnson was in custody in Davie, Fla., as of 8:45 p.m. last night and will have to go before a judge before he can be released on bond.

It's possible he could be there until tomorrow morning. Stay tuned.

Lozada married Chad Ochocinco - who changed his named back to Johnson so his wife wouldn't have to take the name Ochocinco - on July 4.

For what it's worth, the couple briefly called off their wedding earlier this year, allegedly amid rumors of his cheating, before reconciling.

UPDATE: Johnson has been released from jail - and released by the Miami Dolphins, who cut the star 24 hours after this story broke.

Joan Rivers made headlines this week when she handcuffed herself to a cart at Costco in protest of that chain refusing to sell copies of her memoir, shouting to customers that the store is akin to "Nazi Germany."

In response, the Anti-Defamation League issued a statement that called out the comedian for these remarks, saying:

"Such comparisons only serve to trivialize the Holocaust and are deeply offensive to Jews and other survivors."

But Rivers - who is Jewish - isn't exactly backing down. She fired back at the organization via TMZ:

"My husband lost his entire family in the Holocaust. My comment reminds people of the Holocaust because half the people now don't even believe it ever happened... Germany is where banning books started, and it can start here just as quickly."

What do you think? Should Rivers apologize for her comparison?

For the record: no member of The Hollywood Gossip would ever urinate on a member of the opposite sex.

We make this important note because Jay Penske - the son of a billionaire, CEO of PMC Media and owner of Deadline.com and Hollywoodlife.com - was arrested early yesterday morning in Massachusetts after allegedly using two women as a urinal.

TMZ broke the story: police were called to the Nantucket Yacht Club around 2 a.m. after the women said they approached Jay because he was relieving himself in the parking lot. Upon seeing them nearby, he allegedly turned and sprayed his urine all over one of the ladies' boots.

He's also accused of shoving these strangers. Penske then tried to run away from the club.

The women actually chose NOT to press charges for either of these incidents, but Jay and his brother Mark were arrested on counts of breaking and entering with intent to commit a crime at the Yacht Club.

They spent some time in jail and have since been released.

Joe Simpson, the 54-year-old former minister and manager/father of Jessica and Ashlee Simpson, was arrested for DUI in L.A. back on August 4.

During the traffic stop, on Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks, officers got the feeling he was intoxicated and ultimately made an arrest.

Joe Simpson spent the rest of that night cooling off in jail.

He was released without bail at 9:41 the following day. If charges are filed, Simpson will not get any jail time since it's his first offense.

Expect something more in line with probation, community service and a sizable fine ... along with a heaping dose of embarrassment.

No comment yet from any of the Simpson clan.

Amy Winehouse's ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, is on life support and in a coma after suffering an alleged overdose on Friday, according to UK news reports.

Blake, whose history of substance abuse is well documented, was found by his girlfriend, Sarah Aspin, choking in bed Friday and was rushed to a local hospital.

He reportedly suffered multiple organ failure and has been placed on life support in a medically-induced coma in the West Yorkshire, England medical facility.

Blake and Wino

Sarah Aspin claims Blake Fielder-Civil arrived home late on Thursday "slurring words and staggering," and she feared that "he was on something."

Aspin and Blake have one 15-month-old son together.

Fielder-Civil and Amy Winehouse, who were married for two years until 2009, had an turbulent and tabloid-dominated relationship, to put it mildly.

In an out of jail for assault, burglary and firearm possession in recent years, Blake was widely considered to be the chanteuse's chief enabler.

Amy died in July 2011, a tragedy many believe could have been prevented had it not been for years of addiction aided and abetted by Blake.

That's nowhere on the mind of her family today, however.

Amy's father, Mitch, took to Twitter Thursday to express his concern over Fielder-Civil's health, writing, "Terrible news about Blake this morning."

"Remember Amy loved him. Let's pray for his recovery."
