Colin Farrell Sues Ex over Sex Tape
Ah, you'd think this is the kind of thing that Colin Farrell encourages, but he's trying to sue a woman over a sex tape that she's made public. He says the two had an agreement that they would never make the tape public. The lawsuit filed Monday seeks general and compensatory damages as well as a temporary restraining order and injunction prohibiting the distribution of the videotape. The woman, Nicole Narain, had an intimate relationship (hey, who hasn't?) with Farrell two and a half years ago. The 15-minute tape was going to be released by an Internet pornography company.
Polanski Testifies in Libel Suit from France
Filmmaker Roman Polanski is testifying from France in his libel case against Vanity Fair magazine. The magazine published an article saying that Polanski tried to seduce a woman while en route to his slain wife Sharon Tate's funeral in 1969. Polanski testified to the London courtroom via video link from Paris that he was in a "state of shock" when he read the article. Polanski isn't traveling to England, because he would be extradited to the U.S. (he's wanted here after pleading guilty to having sex with a minor in 1977). The 71-year-old said, "This was the worst thing ever written about me. It's absolutely not true. But I think it was particularly hurtful, because it dishonors my memory of Sharon." His wife at the time, actress Tate, was murdered by the Manson family in 1969, while she was eight and a half months pregnant with Polanski's child.

Lil' Kim has filed a lawsuit against one of her recent trial witnesses, who is allegedly using the rapper's name and image to promote a DVD. Madonna is becoming an English rose, she tells Vogue. The singer talks about raising chickens on her country estate, as she poses in ladylike clothes. Christina Aguilera has cut her arm at home, and is now in a cast and sling. She was hurt after picking up a piece of glass from a vase knocked over by her dog -- and ended up cutting two tendons in her arm. Ouch!
