KIEFER SUTHERLAND SHIRTLESS IN LONDON

Kiefer Sutherland had a jolly good time in London last week -- maybe a little too jolly.

After a night of boozing, the 24 star was spotted being escorted out of a strip club, shirtless and being held in a headlock by bouncers. The owner of Stringfellow's Gentlemen's Club, Peter Stringfellow, wrote on the club's website, "Around about 3:15 a.m. [Sutherland] decided it would be very funny to take his shirt off. When it was explained to him very gently that that was the job of the girls and not the customers, he burst out laughing. His friend thought that this would be a good time for them go home."


VOLCANO COSTS JOHN CLEESE FIVE GRAND

John Cleese took a $5000 taxi ride last week -- and that volcano in Iceland was to blame.

The Monty Python alum was in Oslo, Norway for a TV appearance. But when his flight to London was cancelled because of the volcanic ash cloud and no boats or trains were available, he found himself stranded. So he decided to take a taxi to Brussels, Belgium, a 930-mile trip, and from there he was able to hop on a train to London. No word on how much Cleese tipped.


BOMBSHELL McGEE GETTING PAID IN SINCITY

Michelle "Bombshell" McGee is cashing in on her home-wrecker status.

The club's advertising and marketing director tells People magazine, "Good publicity, bad publicity, it's all publicity to me. I mean, I don't expect Sandra Bullock to show up."


KIM KARDASHIAN IS NAKED AND UNRETOUCHED

STEVEN SEAGAL'S DONE THIS BEFORE

Looks like Steven Seagal has a history of sexually harassment.

According to Radar Online, more women are about to come forward accusing the action star of sexual misconduct.

Earlier this week, Kayden Nguyen filed a sexual trafficking and sexual harassment suit against Seagal. Now, her lawyer says, "Several of Seagal's other victims have already come to my office and submitted sworn declarations detailing the facts of Seagal's illegal conduct towards them."

Meanwhile, CBS News has unearthed an interview with Jenny McCarthy, who said Seagal asked her to strip during a casting call for Under Siege 2, and then he threatened her to keep her mouth shut. In the 1998 interview with Movieline magazine, Jenny said, "I go inside Seagal's office, and he's by himself and says, 'Sit on my couch.' Then he said, 'Take off your dress.' I just started crying and said, 'Rent my Playboy video, you [a-hole]!' and ran out to the car."


KATE HUDSON IS A BIT FULLER UP TOP

Kate Hudson has gotten a boob job.

The actress didn't quite go Heidi Montag -- a source tells Us magazine that Kate had a small breast augmentation in late March. Another insider says, "Kate makes jokes about her boobs, but her chest has always been one of her biggest insecurities."


KATE GOSSELIN SAYS THE KIDS STAY WITH HER

Kate Gosselin says she's not afraid of losing her kids to her ex.

The mother of eight is in a battle with Jon, who's seeking primary custody, claiming Kate's an "absentee mom." She tells People magazine, "I won't lose my kids. We're glued together, as a package, and nothing, nothing, will stop me from being with my kids."


PARIS HILTON'S FAMILY CELEBRATES HER BREAKUP

Paris Hilton's family took the heiress out the other night to celebrate her dumping Doug Reinhardt.

According to E! News, her parents, Rick and Kathy, were overheard telling Paris how "relieved" they were that Doug is history. An insider said, "Paris has been over him for a while and felt bad ending it. She broke up with him weeks ago."


SPENCER PRATT BLASTSHILLS

CASTMATEON TWITTER

Spencer Pratt is on the attack.

After his Hills castmate Audrina Patridge commented on Lopez Tonight that Heidi Montag "changed a bit" after her numerous cosmetic surgeries, Spencer went nutso on Twitter. "I would like to make it CLEAR! My wife and Audrina have severed all ties! We no longer deal with that fake world and fake people like her." He added, "Audrina -- don't hate because your nasty Tijuana plastic surgery got you no press."


MADONNA APPROVES OF GLEE EPISODE

Glee'sMadonna-themed episode has gotten the Material Girl's seal of approval.

CHARLIE SHEEN'S FAKE MUSTACHE WASN'T A DISGUISE

Charlie Sheen isn't a cheater -- but he does like to wear fake mustaches for fun. At least that's what his rep says.

The trouble began when the rehabbing actor was spotted wearing a faux 'stache, dark sunglasses and a hoodie by InTouch Weekly­ -- who claimed it was a disguise as he tried to sneak out of the apartment of an alleged mistress.

But Charlie's rep, Stan Rosenfield, tellsPeople there's no mistress and the crazy get-up was just a joke for the paparazzi. "The woman in question is the sister of one of Sheen's campmates and Sheen was only responding to a 12th-step call. Since Sheen knew he was being followed and how this would look, he wore the moustache in a tongue-in-cheek disguise gesture."


TIGER CLOSE TO DIVORCE AFTER WIFE FLEES FLORIDA

Tiger Woods lost The Masters and now it looks like he's about to lose his wife.

After the tournament, Elin reportedly flew out of Florida without Tiger and the kids for an "unknown destination." An insider tells People magazine that Elin wasn't happy about that Nike commercial featuring a voiceover by Tiger's dead father or the fact that he returned to golf so soon. "Elin was violently angry over this commercial and thought it was a cheesy thing to do. She wouldn't have gone near the Masters under any condition, but that just made her madder. She is over Tiger. I wouldn't be surprised if she files for divorce sometime soon."


STEVEN SEAGAL: LAWMAN SUSPENDED

Production on Steven Seagal: Lawman has been suspended and an investigation into the actor's sexual-assault case is pending a criminal complaint being filed by the alleged victim.

During a news conference yesterday, Sheriff Newell Normand of Jefferson Parish, Louisiana said he cannot launch an investigation into Seagal's sexual-assault case until alleged victim Kayden Nguyen files a complaint, and he invited her to do so.

Nguyen has filed a civil lawsuit claiming Seagal treated her like a "sex toy" while he filmed his A&E reality show. Seagal is a reserve deputy for the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office.


LARRY KING DIVORCING FOR THE EIGHTH TIME

Larry King will soon be on the prowl looking for wife number eight -- because wife number seven, Shawn Southwick, has been kicked to the curb. Larry filed for divorce yesterday citing "irreconcilable differences." Among those differences was the fact that Shawn believed Larry was having an affair with her sister.

This is actually Larry's eight divorce. This might get confusing... He divorced his second wife, Alene Akins, in 1963, and married another woman, Mickey Sutphin, that same year. In 1967, he divorced Sutphin, and remarried Akins, only to divorce her again in 1972.


MEL GIBSON BREAKS UP WITH RUSSIAN GIRLFRIEND

Mel Gibson and his baby mamma have called it quits after a year of dating.

Mel's wife Robyn filed for divorced in April 2009.


NO CHARGES FOR JON AND KATE PRODUCERS

Kate Gosselin's brother and sister-in-law blasted Jon and Kate Plus Eight while testifying in an investigation against the show.

Though Kevin and Jodi Kreider said the reality show harmed the Gosselin children, the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry decided not to file charges against the producers for violating child labor laws. But in the future, producers must obtain child-labor permits to film the Gosselin brood and a portion of the proceeds from the show must be put into a trust fund for them.


PAMELA ANDERSON CLAIMS TO WEAR UNDERWEAR ON DWTS

Pamela Anderson says she's hasn't been going commando on Dancing With the Stars.

Amid reports that she's been forgoing undergarments while competing and that producers had to ask her to please wear a bra and panties, Pam tells Pop Eater, "I do wear underwear! I don't think anyone has ever said anything to me."


KATHY GRIFFIN LETTING IT ALL HANG OUT FOR REALITY SHOW

This is probably a case of too much reality.

Kathy Griffin plans to film herself getting a pap smear for her reality show My Life on the D-List -- and she's invited the press to watch. The gynecological procedure will go down tomorrow, poolside at the Palomar Hotel in L.A. The comedienne says she even bedazzled her privates for the special occasion.

According to the press release, Kathy "wants to say 'Suck It to Cancer' and educate women all across the world about keeping their bodies healthy and of course inform them about when they should be getting their check-ups."


CELEB

PIC OF THE DAY

From guidettes to glamorous... The ladies of JerseyShore(Snooki,J-Woww and Sammi Sweetheart) have gotten high-fashion makeovers in Harper's Bazaar. Snooks tells the mag, "I know a couple things about manners. I just haven't been using them."

SANDRA BULLOCK & JESSE JAMES FIGHTING OVER THE PHONE

Sandra Bullock is reaching out and shouting at someone -- and that someone is Jesse James.

Sources say Sandra has had several phone fights with her cheating hubby, and even reduced the bad-boy biker to tears when she told him she was leaving him. A friend of the actress tells Us Weekly, "When they do talk, it's very little and very nasty. She won't forgive him for this."

Sandra's also been busy on the phone with a divorce lawyer. The insider tells the magazine, "She has made up her mind. She is talking to her lawyer and definitely decided to file for divorce from Jesse... She is over him."

Meanwhile, Sandra was spotted for the first time since the scandal broke. On Wednesday, she was in L-A visiting Gabriel Brener, who runs a Beverly Hills investment firm. A source tells People magazine, "She's not there on business. They've been friends for decades."

But according to T-M-Z, Charlie is just playing a game of brinksmanship. An insider tells the gossip site, "Does anyone really think Charlie will walk away from 48-million dollars?"

The funnyman went on Letterman the other night and called Aussies "English rednecks."

RICKY MARTIN ADMITS HE'S GAY

Ricky Martin is living la vida gay-o.

On his website, the "She Bangs" singer wrote, "I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am."

Ricky credits his twin sons (who turn two this summer) for inspiring him to come out. He writes, "To keep living as I did up until today would be to indirectly diminish the glow that my kids were born with. These years in silence and reflection made me stronger and reminded me that acceptance has to come from within and that this kind of truth gives me the power to conquer emotions I didn't even know existed."


JESSE JAMES' MYSTERY MISTRESS STAYING A MYSTERY

Some good news for Jesse James -- one of his alleged mistresses has decided to keep her mouth shut.

James's supposed fourth mistress hired attorney Gloria Allred, but never revealed her identity. Yesterday Allred said, "I can confirm that she has decided not to tell her story.

Last week, Allred announced that her client, a "beautiful model and businesswoman," had a three-year affair with Sandra Bullock's husband and has "hundreds of texts, E-mails and photos" to prove it.


DEMI MOORE ISN'T BIG ON PIMPIN'

After Kim K. tweeted that she was "big pimpin'" with her friends Serena Williams,LaLa Vazquez and Kelly Rowland, Demi responded, "Are you using the word 'pimpin'' as in pimping?" Kim replied, "Doesn't everyone? L-O-L." Demi, who campaigns against child slavery, wasn't having it. She wrote back, "A pimp is nothing more than a slave owner! If we want to end slavery we need to stop glorifying the 'pimp' culture." Kim ended the Twitter war, by saying, "Good point! I agree! It was just a song, not literal."


CHAZ BONO ASKS FOR NAME CHANGE

Chaz Bono is all man now -- and he wants a new name. The 40-year-old recently filed a petition to change his name legally from Chastity to Chaz.

According to the doc, "an irreversible surgical procedure for the purpose of altering Chaz Bono's sex characteristics from female to male" was performed in September.


LINDSAY LOHAN ALMOST TOSSED IN THE LOONY BIN

Her dad isn't the only person worried about Lindsay Lohan.

According to T-M-Z, several police officers who've helped the actress deal the paparazzi almost forced her to get a psychiatric evaluation recently. The cops say they were concerned about LiLo's "erratic behavior" and "attitude." The officers, however, decided against the involuntary evaluation because they believed she could still take care of herself.


CELEB QUICKIES

DAD DEFENDS MICHELLE "BOMBSHELL" McGEE

Someone has finally come to the defense of alleged home-wrecker Michelle "Bombshell" McGee.

The tattoo model's dad Denny McGee tells Cleveland's FOX 8 News, "She told me that she was going out with Jesse James...the motorcycle guy. I'm like, 'Oh, I thought he was married to Sandra Bullock.' She goes, 'Well, they were, but now they have a thing where they kind of live apart.'" McGee also denies his daughter's alleged ties with Nazism, after photos of her in Nazi-themed garb emerged. "I don't know about my daughter having any Nazi -- any relations with them at all. That's ridiculous. She's always been a good girl."

JESSE JAMES' ALLEGED MISTRESS COUNT UP TO FOUR

Jesse James is quickly becoming the Tiger Woods of the motorcycle world.

A third woman has come forward claiming she had an affair with Sandra Bullock's husband. Brigitte Daguerre, an L-A photographer, says she had sex with James only four times, but the two kept in contact through texts and E-mails for a year. And she has 195 of the racy texts to prove it.

But wait -- there's more. There's a fourth alleged mistress, and she's being represented by attorney Gloria Allred. Allred describes the mystery woman -- who hasn't yet decided to go public -- as a "beautiful model and business woman" who had a three-year fling with James that ended after the scandal broke. She too has damning texts, E-mails and photos.

By the way, Tiger is still way in the lead with at least 15 alleged mistresses.


SANDRA BULLOCK SAID SHE'D HAVE BEAT TIGER WITH A BAT

A few months ago Sandra Bullock imagined what she'd have done if she was in Elin Nordegren's shoes.

When the Insider's Niecy Nash asked, "You would still be swinging the golf club?" Sandra answered, "Yeah, [Elin] stopped. She was respectable. I'd get the baseball bat. I'd get everything out." No word yet on what sports equipment Sandra used on Jesse James after learning of his infidelity.
