Did Brad and Angelina Secretly Wed?
November 2, 2005

The headlines are flying in London today: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have secretly tied the knot! A British tabloid shocked the world this week, claiming that the stars sealed their love in a private Buddhist ceremony, adding that Pitt has been spotted with a "thick, gold band on his finger."

But Pitt's people claim the report is all a hoax, saying that the tabloid "used a wedding picture from ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith.'"

"There's simply no truth to this whatsoever," Pitt's rep added.

The raging custody battle between Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin just got even nastier, and this time, Basinger is on the offensive. In a statement released to "Extra," Basinger said, "Everyone knows about Alec Baldwin's behavioral problems -- his anger, his rages -- they are, unfortunately, legendary. If his relationship with his daughter is fractured, there is only one person to blame, and it is himself."

The statement comes fresh off the heels of Baldwin's attack on Basinger earlier this week in court, claiming that Basinger needs psychological counseling. Baldwin also accused his former wife of trying to turn his daughter Ireland against him.

Meanwhile, Us Weekly spotted Jessica Simpson on a safari in Africa this week, without husband Nick Lachey and without her wedding ring. The two have continually denied their marriage is in trouble, but Simpson is now admitting to Teen People magazine that she has been to a therapist to deal with all the breakup rumors.

Eva Longoria arrived without her man Tony Parker for Derby Days in Australia this week, but rumors swirled that the actress now has a secret tattoo hidden somewhere on her body.

We didn't get a glimpse of a tattoo, but Longoria did show us one secret Tony token. "I have him here on this number nine necklace," she revealed. "So he's not too far."
