Lindsay Accuses BFF Of Fashion Theft; Taylor Lautner's Abs Make BankS

  • Leggings! Drama! Lindsay Lohan and her BFF, a shaggy-haired dude named Patrick "Pootie" Aufdenkamp, had a falling out while on vacay in St. Barts.

Apparently Patrick was at meetings for LL's 6126 fashion line. Now he has a line of his own, leading LL to believe that he stole ideas. Patrick has Tweeted: "Everyone will know the truth soon enough. And I mean Everything…!" Ominous! He also says: "I'm way too creative of an individual to need to steal anything design-related from that girl. She knows how much my new line means to me and has seen first hand all the HARD and HONEST work I have put into bringing it to life. The fact that she is trying to take that away from me with a guilt free conscious and can still sleep at night, is in essence, (for those of you who may not already know) exactly what kind of person she is right now."

  • "As you know and have heard, the song — or part of the song — leaked, not by me because mine has been locked up in a vault since we recorded it. The DJ who's speaking over the track — I don't who that person is, I don't know how they obtained, I don't know what their purpose is but that person has nothing to do with the track. The song was recorded by Michael and myself, I produced it for him, I wrote the song and I played all the instruments on the track. It was one of the most amazing musical experiences that I've ever had. It was done by two people who had respect for each other and who love music, that was it. I'd like to see this thing get straightened out as soon as possible, because I'd like for you the fans, people who love Michael, to be able to hear the song in its entirety the way it was meant to be — the way Michael and I had intended it to be." — Lenny Kravitz, on the Michael Jackson track which has been leaked online.
