Thinner Lindsay Lohan to Host SNL Finale
Plus: Chris Tucker fined, Amazing Race couple engaged, and more
SHED: Lindsay Lohan, 18, has lost about 20 lbs. from her 5’5″ frame, she tells Teen Vogue, though her rep declined comment when New York’s Daily News inquired as to how and why she dropped the weight. “Suddenly you can fit into more, things look better and that feels good. But compared to a lot of actresses my age, I’m actually overweight,” the lean Mean Girls star tells the fashion magazine. Meanwhile, NBC has announced that Lohan will close out the 30th season of Saturday Night Live on May 21 as host. Coldplay will be the musical guest.
PLEADED: Chris Tucker, 32, has pleaded guilty to speeding and eluding police during a brief April 17 car chase in Georgia, reports the Associated Press. The Rush Hour actor told authorities he didn’t hear their sirens because he was on his way to church in his Bentley at 109 mph. The speed limit on that stretch of road is 70 mph. Tucker paid fines of nearly $7,000.
SUED: Calvin Klein model Maggie Rizer, 27, has filed a $24 million lawsuit against her imprisoned stepfather and several other individuals and businesses in connection with his theft of several million dollars from her, AP reports. The stepfather, John R. Breen Jr., pleaded guilty in October 2004 in Watertown, N.Y., to charges of grand larceny and scheming to defraud in connection with the thefts. He was sentenced to 16 months to four years in prison. Rizer’s lawyer, Edward W. Hayes, said a bank and other businesses were named as defendants because they let Breen waste Rizer’s money when they knew or should have known that he was stealing from her.
ENGAGED: Amazing Race male couple Lynn Warren, 30, and Alex Ali, 22, who came in fifth in this week’s season finale of the CBS reality series, are celebrating anyway. The two plan to wed on June 1 in Ottawa, Canada, where same-sex marriages are legal. “The wedding is at 8 a.m.,” Warren told PEOPLE. “I’m not a morning person but I’ll get up that early to marry Alex.” Local radio station Hot 89.9 FM will host a bachelor party the night before and the wedding itself.
