Fans of the Cameron Diaz/Justin Timberlake pairing will be glad to know that the leggy actress is not only denying reports that she cheated on her crooner boyfriend of two years, but has officially filed a lawsuit alleging slander and libel against that most esteemed bastion of journalistic ethics, The National Enquirer. Diaz is seeking more than $10 million for the scandal sheet’s report, entitled "Cameron Caught Cheating," as well as all profits earned from the May 23 issue.

Notorious womanizer Charlie Sheen welcomed a new lady into his life when estranged wife and former Bond girl Denise Richards gave birth to the former couple’s second child. New daughter Lola joins the fractured celeb family with months to spare before both parents begin filming this fall on their respective television shows — Dad back to CBS sitcom "Two and A Half Men," and Mommy headlining new UPN drama, "Sex, Lies, and Secrets."

Curious about those notoriously Hollywood-savvy multi-studio honchos Bob and Harvey Weinstein? A new novel by former Mirimax publicist Rachel Pine hits the shelves this month, full of larger-than-life caricatures so thinly veiled you can decipher the "fictional" names with even a beginner’s knowledge of Tinseltown gossip. Pick up a copy of "The Twins of Tribeca" and indulge your salacious celebrity imagination.

Where’s Herbie when you need him? Teen actress Lindsay Lohan didn’t have the aid of a certain overprotective anthropomorphic VW bug when a crazed photographer chased and intentionally hit her car Wednesday in Los Angeles. The stalkerazzo was arrested after the crash, which left Disney’s favorite party girl with only minor injuries.

Europe’s politicos heard from Hollywood’s favorite Buddhist, Richard Gere, when he gave a press conference in Brussels to urge the leaders of the world to support his favorite cause — a free Tibet. The actor insisted the E.U. emulate American efforts to pressure China’s government into backing off the tiny region.

Oscar winning director Oliver Stone had a Memorial Day weekend to remember as he was charged with a misdemeanor DUI and an unnamed drug charge late Friday night in Hollywood. Stone, who is known for his politically charged films, is developing a new crime drama, "The Night Watchman," ironically about police corruption.

Also generating some negative legal publicity is chronic troublemaker Christian Slater, who was arrested Tuesday in New York for allegedly sexually harassing a woman in a grocery store. The reportedly intoxicated star, whose upcoming political thriller "The Deal" is due out this fall, apparently grabbed the buttocks of his victim, adding unsolicited groping to his already prolific criminal list of domestic battery, stomach biting, drunk driving, attempting to carry a loaded firearm onto a plane, and, critics agree, making the abysmally awful "Alone In The Dark" (an unprecedented 1% on the Tomatometer).

No, it’s not a WB spinoff — "The Gilmores of Beverly Hills," a comedy about a black family that moves to the rich neighborhood, is in the works by the hilarious twosome of Chris Rock and Adam Sandler, fresh off their butt-slapper "The Longest Yard." Sandler, who’s already got over a dozen producing credits under his belt, will be sure to guide the comedy with his trademark golden goofball touch while writer Rock is set to star.

Church officials rejected requests to film the controversial book-to-film thriller, "The Da Vinci Code" on location at Westminster Abbey, claiming it to be "theologically unsound." "Code," starring Tom Hanks, Paul Bettany, Jean Reno, and helmed by Ron Howard, is currently in pre-production and is slated for a 2006 release.

And finally, some happy news…everyone’s favorite celebutante and wax figure, Paris Hilton, has announced her engagement to her boyfriend, also named…Paris. Sounds at first like one of those Carrie Bradshaw-inspired single person self-weddings that are all the rage nowadays, but no — the Paris in question is in fact Paris Latsis, himself an heir to some obscure fortune, making this hot pairing full of love and richness. Gotta say it — that’s hot.
