A doctor tied to Michael Jackson, Dr. Allan Metzger, was reprimanded by a Medical Board in September 2000 for "fraudulent medical practice based on prescriptions written for an international entertainer, using a false/fictitious name."

Dr. Metzger confirmed to TMZ that this entertainer is Janet Jackson.

The doctor has also treated Michael Jackson, gone on tour with the star on his HIStory tour in the 1990s and videotaped his wedding to Debbie Rowe.

He is a lupus specialist - Michael Jackson reportedly had the disease.

In the late 90s, Metzger wrote prescriptions for Janet Jackson using the name of her chef, Ricardo Macchi, he admits, saying the prescriptions were for diuretics.

Macchi sued Dr. Metzger over the matter but the suit was dropped.

He also wrote a prescription for a hepatitis B injection - he says he wrote it because Janet was going on tour and wanted to guard against the disease.

"I had done this for Janet for her anonymity," he said.

As for Michael Jackson, Metzger claimed, "I have not treated Michael Jackson for many years." He says he has talked to Jackson on the phone over the years, even giving him medical advice. As for whether he prescribed meds for Jackson?

"I am not at liberty to discuss Michael's medical care," he said.

Doctors associated with Jackson are coming under intense scrutiny due to the singer's death June 25 from what is looking more and more like a drug overdose.

Jessica Biel is gorgeous, beautiful and sexy.

According to those that know the actress well, however, she's also needy and annoying.

Biel on the Move

Rumors of a break up between Biel and longtime boyfriend Justin Timberlake have grown stronger this week. Multiple insiders have confirmed as much to The New York Daily News.

“Things don’t look good for them right now - they’ve hit a really rocky spot,” said a source close to Timberlake, adding that issues began during a trip to Vegas JT took with his friends in February because "they got into a huge screaming match over the phone about how she’s always ‘checking up’ on him. She’s extremely needy and is always keeping tabs on him.”

While Lance Bass labels Biel as "fun to be around," others within Timberlake's circle of pals don't agree.

“All his friends think she’s really annoying,” said an insider. “She’s always trying to be one of the guys. She and Justin have no chemistry.”

We don't know either side of this couple well, but our staff has often debated this same theory. Timberlake is one of the most charismatic, outgoing stars in Hollywood. He's the kind of guy that tries to mount his girlfriend at a Lakers game.

Biel, conversely, comes across as far more serious.

Fortunately, she also comes across as naked in the movie Powder Blue, so... uhhh... we lost our train of thought.

Happy Fourth of July, celebrity gossip fans. Below, The Hollywood Gossip staff takes a look back at what was a tragic, eventful week in the celebrity world.

As you all know, one story dominated the news ...

  • The cause of Michael Jackson's death is looking more and more like an overdose of dangerous prescription drugs. An LAPD and DEA investigation continues.
  • Meanwhile, Jackson's ex-wife Debbie Rowe wants custody of "her" kids, while speculation persists that he was not the biological father of his own children. Dermatologist Arnold Klein, who treated MJ, is rumored to be the actual dad.
  • Media coverage of Jackson's demise has run the gamut. The OK! cover pic showed him dying, while Life & Style alleges he someone killed him. Amazing.
  • In a new interview, Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag say birth control is a conspiracy, think September 11 was an "inside job," abhor fame, etc. 
  • As some Bachelorette spoilers predicted, Ed returned, while Wes Hayden's "girlfriend" Laurel Kagay has been broken up with him for a year.
  • In other Bachelor news, Melissa Rycroft is engaged to Tye Strickland!
  • Sarah Palin abruptly calls it quits as Governor of Alaska.
  • Former John Edwards campaign aide Andrew Young is allegedly writing a tell-all book. One rumor? He has a Rielle Hunter-John Edwards sex tape.
  • Kendra Wilkinson wedding pics: Not at all cheesy or tacky.
  • Kevin Jonas gets engaged to girlfriend Danielle Deleasa! Yay!
  • Robert Pattinson's aunt offers him some helpful dating advice.
  • Speaking of dating, check out this Jon Gosselin Match.com profile.

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin announced at a press conference yesterday that she is stepping down from her post July 26 and won't seek re-election in 2010.

Palin, who has 18 months left in her first term of office, said she is going to spend more time with her family, but specific reasons why she quit are unclear.

Her rambling, holiday-eve decision to resign as governor blindsided both her supporters and critics and left everyone trying to come up with an explanation.

As Andrew Sullivan of The Atlantic Monthly put it, "it was only a matter of time before she imploded or exploded or some gruesome combination of the two."

Does Palin simply want to devote more time to her family - or her status as a celebrity gossip fixture? Is she starting her 2012 White House bid super early?

Below are 10 theories why Sarah Palin is stepping down ...

  1. She's running for president. Conventional wisdom prior to yesterday was that Sarah Palin would be running - and not just in Runner's World - in 2012. Maybe she still is, and is just launching her White House bid three years early?
  2. She's not running for president. Conversely, some believe Palin isn’t aiming for the White House or any other office. If that's true, why stay Governor?
  3. She's pregnant. Pure, baseless speculation. But would you be surprised?
  4. She's sick of Alaska. A CNN source says Palin "thinks she has had a positive influence on people's lives" from traveling around the country like she did last year. Maybe she really believes this is what's best for the party.
  5. It was spontaneous. Hey, no one ever accused the loose cannon of thinking things through. See her response to all things Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston.
  6. A federal indictment is looming. The Daily Beast's Max Blumenthal reports that Todd Palin's snowmobile sponsor, Spenard Building Supplies, may have been mixed up in questionable political and Palin family business.
  7. The media got to her. Palin is never one to shy away from butting heads with media, but Vanity Fair's 10,000-word critique of her this month was a killer.
  8. She is unstable. Well, to a point there's no doubt about this one.
  9. Her staff is incompetent. Ditto #8.
  10. She is a narcissist. Is her ego such that she is angling for greater fame, fortune and publicity than the Alaska Governorship could offer? Does she desire a TV show to go along with her recently-signed book deal?

We are interested to hear why you think she is stepping down. Share your theories with us via comments below. Here's the video of Sarah Palin's resignation ...

You know what they say. The 36th time is the charm.

Like Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green, these two have broken up and gotten back together so many times that we can't even keep track anymore. And also like the aforementioned couple, one of them is much hotter than the other!

Last night, Lindsay Lohan celebrated her 23rd birthday - which she already did a week ago - by advertising that she is totes back together with Samantha Ronson.

The manly DJ and the Crotch of Fire were seen toting pizza below ...

LiLo and SamRo: Every day is an adventure.

The on-off-on-off-on-off-on-off-on-off-on-off-on-off-on-off-on-off pair had a very civilized date for them, having lunch in Malibu with no cops called even once!

Hey, it's progress, right?

Michael Jackson fans will get a chance to say goodbye to the King of Pop at a public memorial service to be held at L.A.'s Staples Center on Tuesday.

Tickets will be available to the general public and will be free of charge.

Fans from around the world are expected to fly to Los Angeles to say farewell to Jackson, who died at 50 after suffering cardiac arrest on June 25.

Jackson's final rehearsal took place at Staples, where he was prepping for his London tour, sponsored by AEG Live (which owns Staples Center).

Preliminary details of the funeral service are as follows:

  • The main event will be at the Staples Center and will be simulcast at the adjacent Nokia Theatre in the same complex throughout.
  • There is a lottery set up to obtain tickets. You can sign up on the Staples Center website, if it's not crashed by the time you do.
  • 17,500 tickets are available for the event - 11,000 for Staples and 6,500 for Nokia - a maximum of two per person is allowed.
  • If you are one of the 8,750 people selected, you will be given further instructions Sunday. Sounds Mission: Impossible-like.
  • Only U.S. citizens can apply for tickets to Jackson's funeral.
  • Still unclear is whether Jackson's body will be there.

Rumer Willis is covering all her guest-starring bases.

The daughter of Bruce and Demi will portray a pregnant teenager on an August episode of The Secret Life of the American Teenager.

Meanwhile, we've just received word that she'll go in the opposite direction on an installment of 90210 this fall: Rumer will take on the role of Gia, a "punky, cute lesbian," according to Access Hollywood, which first broke the story.

The character will work alongisde Navid, Adrianna and Silver at West Beverly's student-run newspaper. Somewhere, Andrea Zuckerman is smiling.

Earlier this week, The CW announced that Hilary Duff would be appearing on Gossip Girl.

Which guest star are you more excited about?

Ashley Greene can do more than just pose for sexy photos in Nylon Magazine.

She can also answer questions about the eventual big screen release of Breaking Dawn!

We know, we know: New Moon hasn't come out yet; and the premiere date for Eclipse was only just announced. But does any Twilight fan not have an interest in every possible nugget of information regarding this franchise? That's what we thought.

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson will return for Breaking Dawn. That's all we know for now. But isn't that all we need?!?

So, Ashley, tell us about the script for Breaking Dawn.

"I haven't seen a page," the actress told E! News.

Hmmmm, okay. What about production on the final installment?

"We're going to start right after Eclipse," said Greene.

Makes sense. Those at Summit Entertainment are on record saying they wanna churn out this franchise as quickly as possible. As for the Breaking Dawn director, Green can only say who it won't be.

"[Eclipse director] David [Slade] and [New Moon director] Chris [Weitz] will both be busy in postproduction, and Catherine [Hardwicke] will be doing Hamlet."

Cobie Smulders stars on How I Met Your Mother.

How the world has officially met her daughter!

Levi McConaughey Picture

The Canadian actress and her fiancé, actor Taran Killam, are the proud parents of a baby girl, Shaelyn Cado Killam. Congratulations, kids!

While attending an event in January with her co-stars – including fellow pregnant pal Alyson Hannigan – Smulders joked that the co-stars' topics of conversation were generally focused on babies. And who can blame them?!

"You really can't help it, because you have babies on the brain, and you can't help but talk about it a lot," she laughed.

"From creams, doctors, birth methods, dilation ... everything."

Fortunately, she had Hannigan – who welcomed daughter Satyana with husband Alexis Denisof in March – to confide in, with the two swapping stories on set.

Shaelyn is the first child for Cobie Smulders and Taran Killam.
