Mel Gibson’s racist, vulgar rants caught on tape

AP

When it comes to celebrity news not much is very shocking these days. But the audio RadarOnline.com says it attained of Mel Gibson’s racist rant against his ex-girlfriend just makes you stare blankly into space. Or does it?

Gibson is in the middle of a bitter custody dispute with Oksana Grigorieva over their infant daughter. She apparently taped him during a series of arguments and well, there aren’t enough bleeps to make it printable.

At one point he reportedly is heard saying she looks like a “pig in heat” and it would be her fault if she was raped by a group of men – and no, it wasn’t stated so nicely. He also threatened to burn down the house.

Gibson is no stranger to foot-in-mouth disorder. In 2006, the Oscar winner had an anti-Semitic outburst against the Malibu police when he was arrested for DUI.

Powerful odor clouds sale of Lil Wayne condo

lilwayneSometimes celebs make things too easy for us. Really. And even though we were hoping this was a “Family Guy” skit waiting to happen, well…

According to Page Six, rapper Lil Wayne is renting a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom condo that the owners are trying to sell. The challenge – the Miami broker has to lead prospective buyers through the overwhelming smell of marijuana and music-video-like settings.

The multi-platinum, Grammy-winning artist, aka Dwayne Michael Carter, also owns a posh multi-million dollar condo in Murano Grande, according to the Miami News blog.

A house hunter told Page Six that in addition to the crushing smell of weed, “two hot, rap-video-looking girls were walking around in nothing but a bra and underwear, blasting hip-hop. We just went in and looked around and tried not to stare.”

Weezy wasn’t there at the time but seemed to be very neat and tidy.

“He had a perfectly organized closet of crisp T-shirts on hangers, neatly stacked piles of XXL magazines, and a fully …

Chris Brown cancels Twitter account after profanity-filled tirade

R&B singer Chris Brown canceled his Twitter account after a weekend of angry rants against the music industry.

His “MechanicalDummy” Twitter account is no longer visible (of course, it could have been record label Jive stepping in) but recently there were increasing signs of frustration. The AJC’s Buzz noticed just last week that he posted a Tweet effectively telling his haters to stop the “bulls***” (it was spelled out). He immediately followed up with a Tweet apologizing to his “young fans” for the cursing.

A few weeks before that, we saw that his Twitter account mysteriously posted a comment criticizing the performance of rapper Jay-Z (who discovered Chris’s ex Rihanna and was extremely critical of Chris after the beating earlier this year) during an awards show. Just as quickly the Tweet was removed and Chris followed up saying he didn’t write the comment.

But over the weekend Chris went on a potty-mouthed Twitter rampage against record stores, claiming they weren’t …

Courtney Love loses guardianship of daughter

courtneyTMZ is reporting that Courtney Love has lost legal guardianship of her daughter, Frances Bean Cobain. We aren’t exactly sure why this is news considering Frances, the only child of Love and late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, is 17 years old.

Does she really need a guardian? Apparently so because TMZ cites court documents saying Kurt Cobain’s mom, Wendy O’Connor, and his sister, Kimberly Dawn Cobain, are now legal guardians.

The only thing that might make sense is that the new guardians have custody of Frances, whose godfather is Michael Stipe of Athens-based band R.E.M., as well as her financials – but not the trust established after Kurt’s death.

tylerTyler Perry was named one of Barbara Walter’s 10 Most Fascinating People for 2009. It was no surprise that Michelle Obama, complete with sleeveless dress, topped the list, which also included Sarah Palin, Bret Favre, Glenn Beck and Michael Jackson’s children. Controversial performance artist Lady Gaga also made the list (and even got Ms. Walters to say “muffin” on air).

During last night’s show, the filmmaker recounted his violent childhood and meteoric rise to fame and fortune by tapping into a faith-based, comedic core that appeals to middle-class African-Americans – mostly women. When asked how he knows what women want, he talked about spending time at shops and hair salons with his aunt and mother, the late Willie Maxine Perry, who were trying to shield him from his abusive father at home.

A man has been charged with trying to extort money from Cindy Crawford and her husband, according to the AP.

The former supermodel and entrepreneur Rande Gerber were contacted by Edis Kayalar. The 26-year-old suspect, who wanted $100,000 for the picture, was recently deported to Germany and has not been arrested.

Apparently, a former nanny took the photo “as a joke” and the daughter, then 7, told her parents it was part of a “cops and robbers” game. Kayalar allegedly stole the photo from the nanny, who has not been charged.

Creepy.

We’re sad to say but the Katt Williams drama continues. We go from burglary charges to the 911 call from a 17-year-old dude to being kicked out of the Four Seasons hotel.

AJC is reporting that just days after his release from the Coweta County Jail, the comedian says he was kicked out of the posh Four Seasons Hotel in Midtown.

Katt held a press conference in Atlanta Thursday night and told everyone that he was asked to leave the upscale hotel on 14th Street after employees claimed he was causing a disturbance.

He even told local TV station 11Alive that he recently bought a penthouse at the Four Seasons and had rented seven rooms for seven nights.

“I haven’t been here 72 hours and I’m being kicked out of the Four Seasons even though I paid up front and in cash. I don’t understand,” he …
