Kris Jenner Orchestrated Kim Kardashian And Ray J's Sex Tape, Sez Kris Humphries

You know when you're with someone you're totally into but he can't stop talking about his ex and her family? And it's kind of like "shut up about Kim Kardashian, Kris Humphries! You're with me now! Me!" but you don't want to be mean about it? Like, he still won't stop texting you all "Kim used to blah blah blah" and "Kim always used to yadda yadda yadda" and "The sex tape Kim made with Ray J—the one that leaked online and made her 'unintentionally' famous—was actually her mom Kris Jenner's idea. She set the whole thing up and even asked them to reshoot it when she wasn't happy with it the first time"? And then after you and Kris break up you leak it to the tabloids for revenge? You know when shit like that happens? No? Myla Sinanaj does. [TMZ]

It's looking like Johnny Depp was the proactive one in his split with Vanessa Paradis; he's offered a $156 million buyout to the model, singer and actress as a way to amicably end their 14 year relationship and stay out of court. Meanwhile, Depp's Rum Diary co-star Amber Heard, 26, has been visiting Depp on the set of The Lone Ranger and he even bought her a horse so they can ride together. (Heard isn't a lesbian but is in fact bisexual.) You'd think someone whose contract requires a "cool side door" to walk onstage from at awards shows and dresses like a jaunty homeless person would have a more unique and interesting midlife crisis.

The tale of Alec Baldwin and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad people who make him rich and famous continues: in an appearance on Letterman right after punching a pap in the face outside the city Marriage License bureau, Alec Baldwin played off his attack by dropping trou as a distraction to display weight he'd lost. Later, he told David Letterman: ""They want you to react... they want you to take a punch or push them or something." Full account of Baldwin's post-punch press attacks: rolling his mountain bike over a 5'2" Inside Edition reporter's foot and hitting another reporter and photographer with the handlebars. [NYDN]

Today is Prince William's 30th birthday, and he might be inheriting a trust left to him by mom Diana upon her death in 1997. He could inherit more than $15.7 million dollars, which he and Kate Middleton—sorry, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge—might spend on a country house. Prince Harry will receive his share of the trust in 2014. [Page Six]
