Gerard Butler is being treated for substance abuse at the Betty Ford Center, reports TMZ. Trouble for Butler started with the physically demanding shooting of 300 and got worse when he was hurt on the set of the surfing movie Of Men and Mavericks. Back in December, Butler was pulled underwater by a wave and dragged over rocks. Butler reportedly realized he was relying too much on prescription drugs and entered rehab to avoid a "full-blown" addiction, which reportedly also included cocaine.
Don't expect to see Jennifer Aniston at Central Perk anytime soon. Aniston said she doesn't see a Friends reunion movie happening in the near future. "Friends is in your living room; Friends is not in a movie theater. It doesn't make sense to me. I think it would be going against its authentic self," Aniston tells The Hollywood Reporter. In the meantime, there's Aniston's "successful" movie career, which this weekend's Wanderlust might help.
Justin Bieber is going after a beaver. The Biebs legal team filed a cease and desist letter to RC3, the company behind the iPhone app Joustin' Beaver. In the game, users maneuver a beaver who resembles Bieber down a river, while trying to fend off "phot-hogs." Bieber's team wants the app removed and an accounting of all the money made. RC3 says it will continue to sell the 99-cent app, claiming it's a parody and therefore protected.
Chris Brown is being accused of stealing a fan's iPhone, calling her a name, and then driving off with the phone. If true, the move could land the singer four years in prison because he's still on probation for his assault charges. Brown is denying the accusation but the local D.A. is keeping a close eye on the matter.
And in celebrity ink news, Bieber's girlfriend, Selena Gomez, showed off her first tattoo — a heart on her right wrist.
