The couple at an SNL after party in NYC, Dec. 17, 2006. WireImage.comJustin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz have finally confirmed their breakup. They issued the following joint statement on Thursday: "It has always been our preference not to comment on the status of our relationship, but, out of respect for the time we've spent together, we feel compelled to do so now, in light of recent speculation and the number of inaccurate stories that are being reported by the media. We have, in fact, ended our romantic relationship and have done so mutually and as friends, with continued love and respect for one another." Diaz, 34, and Timberlake, 25, began dating in 2003 after meeting at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards. They called it quits just before the new year, with one source pinpointing the pair's split to have taken place between their lovey-dovey December 16 night on the set of Saturday Night Live and Timberlake's Christmas Day trip to visit Diaz in Vail, Colorado. However, you can see the former couple together again (in cartoon form anyway) when they costar in the upcoming animated sequel, Shrek the Third.

*Whitney Houston’s clear plastic grand piano, purchased new for $121,000, was sold at an auction Tuesday for $20,000, according to reports. It was the top seller of about 406 lots sold from a warehouse in Irvington, N.J., where Houston left behind an array of personal items for months without payment. The company decided to put the stuff up for bid after the singer reportedly stiffed them for $175,000 in storage fees. "I feel so badly that all her beautiful stuff is being sold off like this," Debbie Benge, 56, a school nurse from Bloomfield, N.J., told the New York Daily News as she paid $375 for a red-and-gold pantsuit embroidered with musical notes. Benge says she plans to resell it on eBay. The buyer of Houston’s clear piano, a Mississippi antiques dealer in snakeskin boots who asked to remain anonymous, said he would resell the instrument as well. Also on the auction block were a set of 16 music awards won by Houston's estranged husband, Bobby Brown, including gold records for his song "Humpin' Around." According to the Daily News, they sold for $25 apiece to magician Meir Yedid, 46, of Fair Lawn, N.J. "It's the only item that's personal," Yedid explained. Steve Newmark, co-owner of A.J. Willner Auctions, which handled the sale, said he is unable to announce the overall sale total for legal reasons.
When Justin Timberlake, 25, was casting the femme fatale for his new $1 million video, "What Goes Around," the singer – who was on the rocks with 34-year-old girlfriend Cameron Diaz -- went after one actress: Scarlett Johansson. And Johansson readily agreed, an odd choice for the seasoned thespian who’s known for her careful film choices. But not if you have a crush on the leading man, says a pal of Johansson. “Scarlett has always liked Justin. They’ve always had a flirtation – that’s why Cameron was threatened by her.” With good reason. The decision to cast the 20-year-old as the video vixen pushed Timberlake's relationship with Diaz to the breaking point, and paved the way for Johansson to move in for the kill. “She could not believe he went behind her back to put her in the video," says a Timberlake pal. "Cameron was very jealous of Scarlett.” Adds the source, “they definitely got together after she did the video.” Indeed, sources in both stars’ inner circles tell Us the couple are in the beginning stages of a relationship and excited to get to know each other. Where did Cameron's long-standing rivalry with Scarlett begin? How is Cam coping with the Justin’s newfound romance? What happened during Justin's sexy encounter with Kate Hudson when he attended her New Year’s Eve bash? For more details on Cameron and Justin’s split and his budding romance with Scarlett Johansson, check out the new issue of Us Weekly, on newsstands this week.
Sources has learned that Michael Jordan and his wife Juanita have agreed to split the marital assets 50-50. An insider tells us that Juanita's take will be in excess of $200M. Wow, I guess putting up with all Michael's blondes may have been worth it after all.
I Love New York," the new reality series starring former "Flavor of Love" contestant New York, made history on Monday (January 8) scoring the highest debut in VH1 history. 4.4 million people between the ages of 18 and 49 reportedly tuned in to the "celebreality" debut earlier this week, which has 20 men competing for the affection of New York (born Tiffany Pollard). Here is part of an interview done by Black Newswire: Now I read an interview with you and you said that a woman wanted you to urinate in her drink so she could be like you? Oh God, yes. Oh my God (screaming). It's funny that you brought that up because I guess these interviews really do get posted, chile. Yes she did. Yes she did really do me like that in the bathroom. Oh my God, you know New York is always getting her party on. I was clubbing. I don't know if they want me to give them a plug so I'm not going to say which club I was at… you know it was in crazy ass New York City. And then you responded to her that she would have to pay you money to do that for her, but I want to know what would be the price for you to do that? (laughing) Let's just say that her purse wasn’t able to hold all the money that I was looking for in order to have to do that. Oh okay. So we all watched your evolution on the television. On the first season, I liked you on the first season. Then you came back and then you were like thin…I was like what did she do to herself? And then we see these new photos of you and you're a bit bustier. Oh absolutely (giggles). I'm not going to say that I'm the Oprah Winfrey of dieting but I do happen to fluctuate a lot with my weight, and Season 1, that was me, lets say 20 pounds heavier than I usually am. And then on Season 2, I came back on the real thin, thin, thin side because I don’t know when to quit. And when something's going good, I keep going. And that was definitely too small, too thin for me. So right now I am a bit busty and I guess all of my weight is going to my bust line and I'm not mad at it either. Did you get plastic surgery? Yes. And if I can just rebuttal real quick, that is so amazing because I am one of the most confident women that I know besides my mother. The reason why I really went and got a breast job was because, onceagain, I was tired of my weight fluctuating in that area… I was so sick of it. I was like 'Hey, we gotta make this a permanent busty type thing.' That's the real reason why I really got my breasts done. It wasn't really because I wasn’t happy with what God gave me. I was just tired of him giving it to me and taking it back on certain days. SHOW AIRS EVERY MONDAY ON VH1

Britney Spears took her wheels-coming-off act, and some new K-Fed-esque man-candy to the high seas off Los Angeles over the weekend. The careening mother of two spent some quality time with a young, well-built sailor (identified by Perez Hilton as Los Angeleno Isaac Cohen), and engaged in that time-honored, one-two, health-giving punch of suntan oil-slathering and cigarette smoking. Brit also managed, once again, to leave the house sans trousers, and without painting three of her fingernails.

Just when you thought Mariah Carey slumbered on a flock of butterflies every night comes the slightly less weird news that she sleeps in a sauna on a bed comprised of towels. The singer says she keeps her sleeping quarters like a steam room in order to keep her vocal chords at their most hydrated. (Where was this room on The Barbara Walters Special when we were forced to spend 10 minutes in her mildly terrifying Hello Kitty bathroom?) “Literally I’ll have twenty humidifiers around the bed,” Carey tells V magazine via MSNBC’s The Scoop. “Basically it’s like sleeping in a steam room. The bed is all terry-cloth, the ceiling is pitched so the water can’t fall on my head, and it drips down to my side, and the TV is behind glass.” Carey, 37, also said that the media is responsible for her sexualized persona “I think that a lot of women are just trying to live up to the stereotypes and to the standard that’s set on TV and in magazines, which is airbrushed women who weigh 3 pounds,” she said. “And it’s not fair. It’s not easy. But everybody gets really protective of me. They’re, like, ‘Be less sexy.’” She said that if she does overdo the sexy look “it’s not intentional — if you film my body a certain way, it’s gonna look like a certain way. But honestly, I’ve been the same way since I was a little kid. Like, I’m just emulating whatever’s on a magazine.” It’s fairly ballsy to blame your sexy image on a camera angle when you show up to the opening of Oprah’s South African girls school wearing a plunging, skin-tight zebra print dress (above). But we’ll let it go if only because the image of Carey reclining on her bath towel diva cradle, watching the Care Bears in steamy splendor from behind glass in order to avoid electrocution is going to keep us going for weeks
