“Hold on,” says Brad Pitt. We’re speaking over the phone, as he makes his way home in LA and some guy – a guy who’s about to have a story he can dine out on for years – is blocking traffic.
“What are you doing?” asks Pitt, giving the horn a couple of short pumps. Then two more, longer this time.

Former Playboy Playmate Ariane Bellmar accused Jeremy of groping her on the set of Entourage and later at the Playboy Mansion. Two more women also accused Jeremy of being gross, and Jeremy responded by denying it all and offering to take a lie detector test (which he passed). Things might have worked out in Jeremy’s favor, but he’s still so upset that it happened to him. — Dlisted

According to the court documents, obtained by E! News, the Magic Mike star is seeking protection for himself, ex-wife Jenna Dewan, daughter Everly Tatum, as well as his and Jenna’s personal assistants.
