Amanda Bynes lunged at a man she believed took a picture of her in the lobby of Atlantic City casino Revel.Continuing her bizarre streak over the weekend, the former Nickelodeon child star chased Bobby Cohen around the lobby of the casino on Friday, demanding he hand over his iPhone.Bobby, 56, a recruitment expert from Long Island, was there celebrating Father’s Day weekend with his son Brett when they randomly bumped into the actress wearing her trademark platinum wig and huge black sunglasses.Brett, 22, a TV producer and comedian from Long Beach, said, “She ran into the lobby alone looking totally frazzled with a load of shopping bags and a bag to carry a dog. She tried to get into the elevator, but then came out again, so my dad thought he’d try and take a picture.

Kim kardashian gave birth to her baby girl on Saturday.  Kanye West was at the hospital at the time.  There's no word on a name yet but supposedly, it'll start with the letter "K."  The girl was born five weeks early, but the baby and Kim are fine.

Neither KIM KARDASHIAN nor KANYE WEST have commented since their daughter's birth on Saturday . . . but some of Kim's annoying family members have.  Here's the rundown:Her mom KRIS JENNER Tweeted, quote, "HAPPY FATHER'S DAY, Kanye!!!!!!"  (She also linked to this collage, which features photos of Kanye, Lamar Odom, Scott Disick, Bruce Jenner and the late Robert Kardashian.)She also said, quote, "God is so amazing!!!  Jesus loves the little children."  (It would've been funny if she would've called Kanye "Yeezus" . . . you know, his "god name."  But maybe she's too religious to find humor in that. KHLOE KARDASHIAN Tweeted, quote, "I cannot even begin to describe the miracle that is now a part of our family.  Mommy [and] baby are healthy and resting.  We appreciate all of the love.  More info will come when the time is right!"

A "forensics expert" named Joe Mullins studied pictures of KIM KARDASHIAN and KANYE WEST, and created an image of what he predicts their daughter could look like in the future. 

The woman who accused KANYE WEST of CHEATING on KIM KARDASHIAN was LYING.  LEYLA GHOBADI is now saying she DID have sex with Kanye, but it was BEFORE he started dating Kim.  There's no word WHY she made it up . . . but supposedly, the "Star" tabloid paid her $20,000 for her story.

KANYE WEST'S new album "Yeezus" comes out tomorrow, but the whole thing leaked online over the weekend.  Naturally, a lot of fans hit up the torrent sites and music blogs to check it out . . . and those who did already have a favorite lyric.On the track "I Am a God", Kanye raps, quote, "I am a god, so hurry up with my damn message.  And a French ass restaurant, hurry up with my damn croissants.  I am a god.  I am a god.  I am a god." The croissants line has been a BIG HIT on social media sites . . . so if you saw some stuff about croissants in your Facebook and Twitter feeds, that's what it's all about.

 

 

 

 

 TIM ALLEN turned 60 on Thursday.  And to celebrate, he THOUGHT he was just going to see "Man of Steel" with his friends, who'd rented out an entire theater. But after he sat down, they surprised him with an entire MARCHING BAND that walked through the theater playing "Born to Be Wild" and then "Happy Birthday".

Before LEONARDO DICAPRIO was an Oscar-nominated actor with the face of a 15-year-old, he was an ACTUAL 15-year-old.Someone recently dug up old footage of him from 1990, when he was a celebrity contestant on the "Double Dare"-style game show "Fun House".Back then, he was starring on the FIRST show based on the movie "Parenthood".  (He played Garry Buckman, who was played by Joaquin Phoenix in the 1989 Steve Martin movie . . . back when he was going by the name LEAF Phoenix.) The other team's celebrity was Danny Pintauro from "Who's the Boss?".  The challenges included being pelted with water balloons, picking up plastic fish with their teeth, and running around in lame Godzilla costumes.

"Man of Steel" had a huge opening weekend, making $125 million since Thursday.  That breaks the record for the biggest June opening weekend ever.  It's also the second best opening for the year, with only "Iron Man 3" doing better.As for how it compares to the other Superman movies, that's more than double the $52.5 million "Superman Returns" made when it came out in 2006.  And almost as much as the $134 million that CHRISTOPHER REEVE'S "Superman" made during its entire theatrical run back in 1978.The SETH ROGEN comedy "This Is the End" made a respectable $20.5 million in 2nd place.  Here are this week's Top 10 movies:

GENE WILDER is still angry over TIM BURTON'S 2005 remake of "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory".  He says the newer "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" was "an insult" . . . and adds that he doesn't care for Burton, although he likes JOHNNY DEPP.

  "The 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards" were handed out this weekend . . . and disgraced Elmo puppeteer KEVIN CLASH was a winner.  And so was GEORGE LUCAS, who was honored for "Star Wars: The Clone Wars".

KIRSTIE ALLEY'S upcoming TV Land show "Kirstie" is reuniting her with her former "Cheers" co-star RHEA PERLMAN.  And now, the "Cheers" reunion got bigger . . . at least for one episode.GEORGE WENDT, who played Norm on "Cheers", will guest star on an episode.  He's playing the ex-husband of Rhea's character.  "Kirstie" will premiere sometime this fall.

 

 

ELTON JOHN and BILLY JOEL'S relationship seemed to fall apart a couple years ago, when Elton publicly outed Billy as an alcoholic as an act of, quote, "tough love."  But apparently, things are cool now.While accepting an award at the annual Songwriters Hall of Fame event in New York City, Elton said, quote, "Mr. Joel, I haven't seen you tonight . . . but I love you dearly."Later in the ceremony, Billy was up on stage, and said, quote, "Is Elton still here, by the way?  We're OK.  Call me.  It's the same phone number."

Father's Day came early for Kanye West, who welcomed his first child with girlfriend Kim Kardashian on Saturday morning.Although PEOPLE confirmed the news through a source, the Kardashian family has remained uncharacteristically mum on social media – until Sunday afternoon, just in time to honor the day for dads."HAPPY FATHERS DAY @kanyewest !!!!!" Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner Tweeted. Jenner's shout out was followed by a message from Kim's sister, Khloé Kardashian Odom, who Tweeted, "I cannot even begin 2describe the miracle that is now a part of our family. Mommy/baby are healthy & resting. We appreciate all of the love." In a follow-up Tweet, she addressed the public's curiosity in further details on the infant, explaining with a heart icon, "More info will come when the time is right! Thank you all for understanding! We love you all dearly! Overwhelmed with love right now." Kim, 32, who appears to have gone into labor several weeks early, was accompanied by her beau, 36, at the hospital when she gave birth to their baby girl, whose name has not yet been released to the public.
