PARTY CRASHER: Britain’s Queen Elizabeth and her family received an apology from Scotland Yard after a comic crasher interrupted Prince William’s 21st birthday party, Reuters reported. “The Commissioner has tendered apologies to the Royal Family for the appalling breach of security at Windsor Castle on Saturday evening,” the Yard’s Assistant Commissioner, David Veness, said in a statement. Aaron Barschak, 36, an aspiring professional entertainer who calls himself a “comedy terrorist,” bypassed security at the weekend event by climbing a wall and then fooling a police officer inside.

ASHTON EXTENDS: MTV plans to air 20 more episodes of “Punk’d” — its hip version of “Candid Camera” starring PEOPLE coverboy Ashton Kutcher, 25, who plays elaborate pranks on his celebrity friends. The new season is scheduled to begin this fall. “All of Hollywood should be afraid,” Kutcher said, according to the Associated Press. “If you are famous, we will find you and you will be ‘Punk’d.'” Previous targets of Kutcher’s pranks include Justin Timberlake, Kelly Osbourne and Pink.

COMIC WEDS: Adam Sandler, 38, married his “Big Daddy” and “Little Nicky” costar Jackie Titone, 36, on Sunday in Malibu. The nuptials took place during an al fresco ceremony that was attended by celebrity friends and Sandler’s pet bulldog, Meatball, who was dressed in a custom tuxedo, Sandler’s Web site reported. “Sandler got married,” read the posting. “Woopity Doo!”

MEL MESS: New complaints have been lodged against Mel Gibson’s forthcoming film about the final days of Jesus Christ, “The Passion,” according the Hollywood Reporter. The Anti-Defamation League of America (ADL) charged that, based on a study of an early version of the screenplay, the project could be “replete with objectionable elements that would promote anti-Semitism.” In a prepared statement addressing earlier charges, Gibson, 47, said: “To be certain, neither I nor my film are anti-Semitic. Nor do I hate anybody — certainly not the Jews.”

DADDY-O: Ozzy Osbourne vehemently denied allegations by a woman claiming he’s the father of her 6-year-old child. Osbourne, after all, had a vasectomy 17 years ago, he said in a statement released to PEOPLE. The unidentified woman was reportedly seeking an out-of-court settlement from Osbourne, 53. But the metal pioneer says the claim has no merit, adding in his statement, “The most precious thing I have in my life is my marriage and my children, and now someone is trying to destroy the harmony in my family. This is not going to happen.”
