American Pie star arrested, Megan Fox engaged - again

Add a comment

American Pie alum Chris Klein has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving, according to reports.

Klein, who was once engaged to fembot Katie Holmes, was pulled over by a Highway Patrol Officer after he was observed weaving in and out lanes on the 101 Westbound Freeway north of Los Angeles just after 3am on Wednesday.

According to website TMZ, Klein failed field sobriety tests and was arrested.

The actor's blood alcohol level was .20 - almost three times the legal limit of .08, according to law enforcement officials.

Klein's bail was set at $25,000.

Sadly, there's potentially a lot more drama heading his way.

This isn't the first time he's had a brush with the law. He was busted in 2004 and charged with two misdemeanour counts of DUI in California, meaning he could potentially face jail time (a paltry four days in the slammer under the state's law) if found guilty again.

Also, Klein could be affected by a new law, coming into effect in July, which requires repeat DUI offenders to have an 'ignition interlock system' installed in their car.

The sophisticated system, essentially a breathalyser test, requires the driver to blow into the unit to test their blood alcohol level. If they're over the limit, the car won't start.

Once bitten, twice shy? Not if you're Chris Klein. The silly, silly boy.

Still wondering who this Klein fellow is? Well, apart from being famous for dating and then breaking up with Holmes, he's hardly what you'd call a headline-hogger.

He played the character of Chris 'Oz' Ostreicher in 1999's American Pie and in the 2001 sequel. He was also featured in the 1999 film Election.

True, his Hollywood star has dimmed of late, but all that changed a few weeks ago when the beleaguered actor surfaced from obscurity with quite possibly one of the most toe-curlingly awful audition tapes we've ever clapped eyes on.

Yes, the now-legendary Mamma Mia! audition tape. The one where a maniacal Klein amazed us all with an eyes-bulging over-the-top performance.

So here it is, one more time for the kids in the cheap seats...

Whether or not the footage is genuine or not has yet to be confirmed, but, ironically, it's probably given the actor's career a much-needed boost.

Shame about the DUI though, that'll undoubtedly send him back to square one.

Put another ring on it

Transformers babe Megan Fox has got engaged to long-time boyfriend Brian Austin Green for the second time.

Fox's rep confirmed the news today to People.com saying, "Yes, she is engaged."

Twice the charm? Who knows. We've been here before. The pair initially got engaged in November 2006, but called it off in February 2009.

Word is Green re-popped the question on June 1 at the Four Seasons Hualalai hotel on the Big Island in Hawaii. A beach-side proposal, how lovely.

But there's a wee snag. Fox has already lost the ring!

A snitch tells Usmagazine.com that the beach side proposal turned into a full-on scram for the missing ring.

"I saw her jumping up and down," says the snitch.

"Later, I saw a half dozen staff sifting through the sand.

"Security and maintenance staff spent a couple of hours looking for it. No one found it."

Let's hope it's not an omen and things don't turn into a nightmare.

Speaking of which, clap your eyes on this gem of a video from Green's Beverly Hills 90210 days:

Such raw, untamed talent.

Rehab for Mueller

Rumours are swirling that Charlie Sheen's estranged wife Brooke Mueller is about to check into rehab to battle her well-publicised substance abuse problems.

According to TMZ, Mueller is eyeing up a 30-day stay at a rehabilitation facility in the not too distant future.

She's no stranger to rehab, having already checked herself in at least six times in the past in a bid to fight her booze demons.

Mueller's rep has naturally trashed the rehab reports, insisting she's merely getting professional help with "stress management".

Her rep, Elliot Mintz, said in a statement: "What we are really talking about here is not rehab. That is a term we are painfully familiar with. Brooke is receiving professional help in the area of stress management. She recognised that it would be in her best interest to deal with personal issues involving stress that have the potential of challenging her sobriety.

"By seeking proper guidance, she will be able to continue to resist returning to old behaviour patterns. There is no shame in asking for help when it is called for. I have been informed she is doing well."

Good for her. She'll need all the stress busting techniques known to man soon as she's reportedly about to divorce Sheen.

Word is the pair have signed divorce papers, but have yet to file them officially.

According to legal documents unearthed yesterday, Mueller will get US$55,000 a month in child support for the couple's one-year-old twin sons, Bob and Max.

The docs also stipulate that "under no circumstances shall the child support paid by Charlie for Bob and Max be less than the child support paid by Charlie to Denise Richards for Sam and Lola."

Elsewhere in the paperwork Mueller agreed "not to disclose to any media sources personal information relating to Charlie's sexual affairs or alleged drug usage".

Ha, good luck keeping that lot under wraps.

Tiger's cub?

Oh dear, if you swing your club as far and wide as Tiger Woods has, there's inevitably going to be some casualties ... or a secret love child, as the case may be.

A porn star and escort named Devon James has crawled out of the woodwork and claimed Woods fathered her love child. Oh, brother.

James gave birth to the purported love child back in 2001, before Woods and Elin Nordegren were married.

Class all the way!

No funeral for Coleman

Can't help but feel sorry for Gary Coleman. It now transpires that there will be no funeral for the late actor.

A chap called Robert Jeffs, the independent lawyer appointed as the special administrator of Coleman's estate, has just announced the news.

Jeffs said that the child star's remains will be cremated, but did not specify when.

What a sorry end to a bitter saga. RIP Coleman.
