Alleged Craigslist killer Philip Markoff broke down during a visit to his family, saying to "forget about [him]" and that there's "more coming out" - meaning either victims or evidence against him in the crimes he's already charged with.

The shocking outpouring came as Markoff spent the weekend meeting with his parents, Richard Markoff and Susan Haynes, and brother Jonathan and his wife, Deanna, all of whom visited him at a Boston jail with his lawyer, John Salsberg.

Salsberg refused to discuss his client’s mental state, but said that: “Philip’s brother and sister-in-law both are very happy they had a chance to see him. They love him dearly. They continue to remain very supportive to him.”

The 23-year-old upstate New York native remains on suicide watch in an isolated cell. Philip Markoff had “markings on his neck consistent with trying to hang himself” and that correction officers have been on high alert.

The medical student stands accused of seeking out women who advertised erotic services on Craigslist, robbing them, and fatally shooting Julissa Brisman, 25.

Some who knew him wonder if his brash, intense and occasionally off-putting behavior is a piece with the portrait that authorities are now painting.

In other news, the August 14 dream wedding on the Jersey shore between the accused sociopath and his fiancée, Megan McAllister, has been called off "for now," according to the leader of what would have been their wedding band.

It was bound to happen.

The Spencer Pratt-Heidi Montag wedding may have gotten all the attention, but over in Europe, Salma Hayek and Francois-Henri Pinault - who quietly married at City Hall in Paris on Valentine's Day - also walked down the aisle again Saturday.

The two wed on the second floor at the Teatro La Fenice, an opera house in Venice, Italy, where guests arrived by boat, with Venitian masks covering their faces.

Among the celeb attendees: Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem, Ashley Judd, Antonio Banderas and wife Melanie Griffith, Woody Harrelson and Edward Norton.

Lilies, orchids and other blooms were delivered earlier in the day, so the wedding of Francois-Henri Pinault and Salma Hayek had a strong floral scent.

A five-course reception banquet took place after the ceremony.

The weekend celebration began with a rehearsal dinner at historic Punta Della Dogana. Guests at the masked ball included former French president Jacques Chirac and wife Bernadette and Charlize Theron and her beau, Stuart Townsend.

Asked about her feelings for her Francois-Henri Pinault, Salma Hayek, 42, told April's In Style, "He's the best." Truly moving praise if it ever existed.

After three years of courtship, publicity stunts and whoring themselves to any celeb gossip magazine willing to pay, Heidi Montag is officially Mrs. Spencer Pratt.

The Hills' infamous couple got married - for real this time - in a sunset ceremony at the Westminster Presbyterian Church in Pasadena, Calif., on Saturday.

Heidi Montag: Nailed

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, 22 and 25 respectively, exchanged their cue cards vows before 200 guests, including Hills co-stars Audrina Patridge, Justin-Bobby, Lo Bosworth and Brody Jenner, Kristin Cavallari, and Frankie Delgado.

Heidi's estranged former BFF, Lauren Conrad, had a change of heart and attended the festivities, but made a quick exit from the church following the ceremony.

The wedding party comprised Heidi's sister Holly Montag and Spencer's sis, Stephanie Pratt, both of whom were dressed in matching floor-length, yellow, silk chiffon gowns, while the groom was joined by two nonceleb friends.

Despite "security concerns," everything seems to have gone well:

The plastic bride wore over $1 million in jewels from designer Neil Lane, including a pear-shaped diamond floral necklace with multiple diamond chains layered over it, diamond earrings and diamond hairpins.

The groom borrowed a pair of diamond cufflinks from the jeweler for the big day and even shaved for the occasion. They arrived in a white Rolls Royce Phantom.

Before the ceremony, which was of course captured by MTV cameras, a plane flew overhead and wrote "Spencer loves Heidi" in the sky (see photo after the jump).

Pratt pointed out the planes which were now going to write "Heidi's No. 1 Hit on iTunes." Hey, nothing wrong with a shameless plug, even on your wedding day.

Spencer Pratt looked dapper in a black suit, smiling and signing autographs for fans outside the church as Montag posted updates on Twitter throughout the day.

Henry Ian Cusick probably wishes he could channel his character, Desmond Hume and - Lost spoiler alert! - go back in time to change this one.

A former ABC Entertainment employee filed a harassment and sexual battery claim against the Lost star Friday, claiming the Scottish actor groped her and made inappropriate sounds and gestures in October '07 on the show's Hawaii set.

Plaintiff Chelsea Stone alleges that, on or about October 16, Cusick "placed his hand on her buttocks" and caressed her back "while making moaning sounds."

The 42-year-old actor then put his face in her cleavage and wagged his head back and forth, according to the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Cusick then touched her breasts with his hands and kissed her on the mouth, the accusations state. See ya in another courtroom, aye, brotha?

Stone says ABC and production company Grass Skirt Entertainment, also named as defendants, did nothing to keep Cusick away, even after she complained, and in the next few days the star and fellow employees became "very hostile" toward her.

On October 28, 2007, Stone was informed she had been fired.

Per the lawsuit, "Plaintiff suffered humiliation and severe mental and emotional distress, and suffered injury when, by means of stress, Plaintiff miscarried."

Cusick's rep would not comment on the lawsuit, which seeks damages for "physical injuries, sickness, substantial losses in earnings, and other indignities."

Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo, who recently announced she and husband Chris Ivery are expecting, showed off the beginnings of a baby bump - and her two adorable pet poodles Valentino and Gigi - while visiting a friend in Hollywood.

She's pretty cute as pregnant people go ...

Bob and Brooke

Ellen Pompeo carrying three cute critters - if you follow!

How Ellen's pregnancy will be written into Grey's Anatomy, if it is at all, remains to be seen. Will Dr. Meredith Grey become pregnant also? Will the actress take a leave of absence? Will the producers use camera tricks or other ploys?

The latter appears to be the producers' choice for Pompeo's pregnant co-star Chyler Leigh, whose character, Lexie, was nervously stuffing her face last episode.

Such a technique has also been pioneered on How I Met Your Mother, while Gossip Girl opts for the neck-up and overdressed approach for Kelly Rutherford.

Jewelers who lent Rihanna approximately $1.4 million worth of accessories the night of the alleged Chris Brown smackdown apparently want it back.

Since late March, Rihanna has been trying to recover the borrowed jewelry from the LAPD, who took the items into evidence in their investigation.

"Since there appears to be no evidentiary value to the continued holding of this jewelry, we respectfully ask the court to order the return of this property to [Rihanna] without further delay," her lawyer Donald Etra wrote in a court request.

The items: two yellow metal hoop earrings with white stones; one yellow metal ring with white and green stones; two yellow metal rings with white stones.

A source adds that Rihanna also borrowed a Gucci dress for the February 7 Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Party she attended, which also has not been returned.

Rihanna: Prince?

Etra stated in the court documents that the owners of the jewelry were going to hold Rihanna liable if the accessories weren't returned, with the total cost and damages related to their late return as more than $1.4 million.

According to the court papers, the LAPD detective on the case referred Etra to the prosecutor on the case, who apparently has not responded to his requests.

"At this stage [of the Chris Brown case], we're not even sure what evidence is going to be entered into the case," DA spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons said.

"For now, we don't have any further comment on this matter."

The LAPD also declined to comment. Brown, who has pleaded not guilty to two felony charges, assault and criminal threats, has a court date Wednesday.

Not a good day in the life of Snoop Dogg.

As if the civil trial accusing the perpetually-high rapper and his posse of beating down a fan wasn't bad enough, the rapper was outed as a tax dodger by state officials, who confirmed that a lien had been put on his SoCal homebase.

Regarding the first issue, Richard Monroe Jr. filed suit against Snoop Dogg in April 2006 for assault, battery, negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress. His opening statement? Playing a video of the incident to jurors.

The Kent, Wash., native claims he sustained serious injuries after hopping onstage during the rapper's rendition of "Gin and Juice" during a 2005 gig in Seattle.

According to court documents, Monroe thought he had an "open invite" to join Snoop onstage, but he found himself tackled by the Dogg's bodyguards, along with other rappers, including The Game, Kurupt, Soopafly and Daz Dillinger.

Monroe says he was punched and kicked until he lost consciousness. Best of all, when he came to, his diamond earrings, watch and wallet were MIA.

He was treated at a local hospital and is seeking $22 million in damages.

Meanwhile, the California Franchise Tax Board claims Dogg, who is also known as Calvin Broadus Jr., hasn't been heeding the taxman lately, if ever.

Officials say he owes the state $284,053 in back taxes and has a lien on his home.

Come on, Snoop. Tax evasion? At least the first legal problem we wrote about in this article makes you sound semi-hard. DMX? Rolling in grave.

Miley Cyrus has some bad news for Justin Gaston, according to a report in today's New York Daily News. She wants to get back with her ex, Nick Jonas.

Despite dating 20-year-old underwear model-musician Gaston for nearly eight months, Miley apparently says her heart belongs to Nick, her first love.

Destroyed by Daddy

The two - who split in 2007 - find it "impossible to stay apart."

“Miley and Nick want to get back together,” a source says. “They’re working together [on a new video], in close proximity to each other. They’re now spending more and more time together, and they’re constantly on the phone.”

When the two were seen on a lunch date at L.A.’s Village Idiot in mid-April, Miley Cyrus laughed off romance rumors, using the “just friends” line.

But do friends kiss? Do they cuddle? Justin Gaston may have reason to worry. When Miley and Nick get together these days, things hardly seem platonic.

“Miley was over at the Jonas house recently, and they were smooching," says the Daily News source. "Nick’s parents have this rule that when a girl is over, the door has to be open, but that didn’t stop Nick and Miley from making out.”

Nick Jonas and Miley Cyrus are “very sweet together,” but they do have squabbles - the insider says - like when it comes to telling Justin Gaston the truth.

The source says that when it comes to dumping Gaston, Miley turned on the waterworks recently, crying: “How do I tell him? I don’t know how to do this!”

Adds the insider, “She doesn’t know how to tell Justin that they are over, but Nick is being very firm with her. He’s a good, stand-up kind of guy, and is making Miley tell Justin very, very soon. He’s being tough about it.”

Some say the two are MFEO (made for each other). Miley recently told Ryan Seacrest, “Me and Nick talk all the time and he is one my best friends. We love each other, and I am happy we have been able to stay such good friends.”

But should they be - and are they already - more than that? Do you believe this story? Who do you think Miley Cyrus should date?

Yesterday, Lindsay Lohan said she's still in love with Samantha Ronson.

Earlier today, Sam changed her Facebook status from "in a relationship" to "it's complicated" - a devastating blow in the land of Internet age love.

After Class

And now, in the latest installment of the girl-on-girl action saga that is Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson, the troubled actress is said to have logged some quality time over at her manly DJ lover's Hollywood home yesterday afternoon.

Then, Ronson was seen driving away from Lindsay Lohan's home at 6 a.m. Friday, E! confirms - and the police were not even called to the scene once!

The visits, captured by celebrity gossip photographers, immediately followed Ronson's return from a vacation in Oahu with a (gay) male friend.

(RIB) CAGE MATCH: Lindsay Lohan may be back together with her sparring partner and lover Samantha Ronson, but she is definitely in need of a cheeseburger or two.

In the past week, the tumultuous tandem has spoken over the phone. In fact, a source says, "Sam texted Lindsay from Hawaii and said she missed her."

On the Ellen DeGeneres Show episode yesterday, Lohan admitted to the host that she is in touch with Samantha Ronson, if only via text message.

Lohan said she wasn't "looking to be with anyone right now" and needed to focus on her career. She also said, though, that "I really care about Samantha and we'll see what happens. Maybe when we're fully in the right place..."

What do you think? Should Lindsay and Sam get back together?
