GossipMomma's RumorRoom

and partner were shocked by news of a plot to kidnap their newly adopted son Pax Thien, it has been reported.
An exclusive report in this week's Life & Style reported that Jolie's security team learned a "credible" plot was "meticulously planned" by a deadly gang to abduct the 3-year-old Pax Thien as the actress made plans to return to America on March 19th soon after she finished his adoption papers.
"They're highly skilled operatives with little regard for human life," says an insider close to Brangelina's security team. "Information came out that leaders of the gang ordered their L.A. members to devise a plan to kidnap Pax before demanding a ransom of $100 million--equal to the profit from a year of drug dealing--for his safe return."
"Brad and Angie would have a number of days to hand over the money or risk the boy's life," the source went on saying. Meanwhile, Brad has reportedly installed a $500,000 security system in the home he and Jolie bought in New Orleans, which is just a block away from a police precinct. (ACESHOWBIZ)

Fashion designer DONATELLA VERSACE and her ex-husband PAUL BECK are to sue several newspapers over their reporting of their daughter’s battle with anorexia.
On Tuesday (27MAR07) night, US reports suggested 20-year-old ALLEGRA VERSACE BECK had been hospitalised after years of battling the eating disorder.
In Wednesday’s (28MAR07) editions of London’s Evening Standard and Italy’s Corriere della Sera newspaper, Versace was quoted as saying, "Anorexia is consuming her… The doctors are doing all they can to snatch her away from this cruel disease." However, a statement from the couple insists Versace made no such comment and their daughter is receiving medical treatment at home.
It reads, "Our daughter, Allegra has been battling anorexia, a very serious disease, for many years. She is receiving the best medical care possible to help overcome this illness and is responding well.
"Allegra is not at present staying in any hospital, she is living in her private residence and her condition does not cause particular concerns.
"As parents, we are doing our best to protect our daughter. However, due to numerous media reports, we want to let everyone know that we appreciate their concern for Allegra, and we ask that her privacy be respected at this time." Allegra is heir to the Versace fashion empire. Her late uncle GIANNI bequeathed 50 per cent of the fashion label to her in his will. Her mother Donatella owns 20 per cent.(SOURCE WENN)

Hollywood star Halle Berry attempted to commit suicide over a failed relationship but backed out at the last minute, the actress says in a candid US magazine interview due to appear this weekend. The 40-year-old actress, who won an Oscar in 2002 for her performance in the hit "Monster's Ball," told Sunday magazine Parade that she tried to gas herself in her car over her stormy marriage to baseball star David Justice.
"I was sitting in my car, and I knew the gas was coming, when I had an image of my mother finding me," she says. "She sacrificed so much for her children, and to end my life would be an incredibly selfish thing to do. It was all about a relationship. My sense of worth was so low," Berry said.
"I promised myself I would never be a coward again."
Berry describes her second marriage, to singer Eric Benet, as "really horrific." "We were in sex rehab after one year. I wish I had left then, but I was putting everyone's needs before mine," she says. For the past year, Berry has been dating model Gabriel Aubry and says she is now ready to have a child. "Now my sights are set on a different chapter in my life, which is motherhood. That's the goal I have very clearly set for myself," she says.(SOURCE YAHOO NEWS)

Troubled rapper FOXY BROWN pleaded not guilty to attacking a beauty store employee in a Florida court yesterday (28MAR07).
The CANDY hitmaker’s appearance in court comes a week after a Broward County judge issued a warrant for her arrest after she failed to attend her scheduled 22 March (07) hearing.
The hip-hop star, real name INGA MARCHAND, is accused of throwing hair glue and spitting on SAM HAYSSAM, owner of Queens Beauty Shop in Pembroke Pines, after he asked her to leave so he could close the store in February (07).
Marchand reportedly struggled with the police officer who arrived at the store and resisted arrest. In court yesterday, Marchand pleaded guilty to both misdemeanour charges of battery and resisting arrest without violence and has been released on $1,500 (£769) bond.
The latest court appearance follows the rapper’s 2004 arrest for assaulting two manicurists in New York City. She was sentenced to three years probation last October (06) and ordered to undergo regular drug testing and attend anger management classes.(SOURCE PR INSIDE)
