"Fast and the Furious" star PAUL WALKER was killed in a car crash north of L.A. on Saturday afternoon. He was just 40 years old. He left a charity event in a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, driven by a friend who's a former race car driver. They were SPEEDING, lost control, the car slammed into a light post, it EXPLODED, and they were both killed instantly.
The exotic sports car in which Paul Walker violently died, crashed as a result of mechanical failure -- very possibly a steering fluid leak ... this according to sources closely tied to the auto shop where the vehicle was stored and maintained. Sources connected to Always Evolving -- the shop co-owned by Walker and the Porsche driver Roger Rodas -- tell TMZ they saw evidence of a fluid burst and subsequent fluid trail before the skid marks at the accident scene.The AE sources point to the fact there is a noticeable absence of skid marks until just before the point of impact. They say if Roger had lost control the skid marks would show swerving, but instead the marks were in a straight line. They feel this cements the theory the driver didn't have steering control.Also suspicious -- the fire spreading so quickly in the front of the car. The sources say flames would be expected in the rear where the engine is ... but fire in the front reinforces their theory of a fluid leak of some sort. We're told the $500,000 Carrera GT was NOT modified and was driven rarely so they believe any failure must be a factory defect.As one source put it ... "Roger was a world class driver" -- and while he might have been speeding (as cops have said) ... the notion he just lost control is preposterous.
PAUL WALKER was in the middle of shooting the seventh installment in the "Fast and the Furious" franchise at the time of his death. There's no official word on the movie's status . . . but the "Hollywood Reporter" says the plan for now is to delay production, but NOT to scrap it altogether.

Every star athlete was a rookie once . . . which means that they all endured their share of hazing. Even DAVID BECKHAM. Beckham says that when he was a 16-year-old pro back in 1991, his teammates made him FONDLE HIMSELF while looking at a picture of a MALE soccer star named Clayton Blackmore. He says, "Everyone had an initiation that you had to go through on the youth team, that was one of the most uncomfortable ones. It was definitely something I wouldn't like to go through again!"
Actress MARIA BELLO wrote a piece in the "New York Times" revealing that she's romantically involved with a woman named Clare. She was inspired to come out publicly after finding herself in the position of having to reveal the relationship to her 12-year-old son. He took the news well and responded by saying, quote, "Mom, love is love, whatever you are.” And she's not labeling herself either. She says, "I would like to consider myself a 'whatever' . . . Whomever I love, however I love them, whether they sleep in my bed or not, or whether I do homework with them or share a child with them, 'love is love.'"

The NFL may stick both the Pittsburgh Steelers and head coach MIKE TOMLIN with six figure fines, and take away one of their DRAFT PICKS, after what Tomlin did in last Thursday's game against the Baltimore Ravens. Tomlin basically stepped onto the field and into the path of Ravens kick returner JACOBY JONES. Tomlin claims it wasn't intentional, but it's possible that he cost the Ravens a touchdown.
On Wednesday night, the Brooklyn Nets were losing to the L.A. Lakers late in the game, and they were out of time outs. So coach JASON KIDD improvised. And by "improvised", I mean he CHEATED.He told one of his players, TYSHAWN TAYLOR, to bump into him so he could SPILL HIS SODA. While it was being cleaned up, he stole a few extra moments to strategize. The Nets lost anyway, but Kidd was still fined $50,000. Kidd fully admitted what he did. He said, quote, "The league fined me for something that I probably shouldn't have done. We'll move on."
MICHAEL J. FOX says he was so frustrated about losing roles to MATTHEW BRODERICK early in his career that he almost quit showbiz. Broderick was even the first choice for "Family Ties", but he didn't want to commit to a TV series, so Fox finally got his breakthrough role.
A ton of people went to the movies over Thanksgiving weekend, because "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" AND "Frozen" both broke records. "Catching Fire" brought in another $74.5 million from Friday to Sunday, the highest total for a three-day Thanksgiving weekend EVER. And if you count Wednesday and Thursday, it made an additional $35.6 million, bringing its five-day Thanksgiving weekend haul to just over $110 million. Yes, that's also a record. (In the 10 days since it was released, "Catching Fire" has made $297 million in North America. And when you add in the $277 million it's made in foreign markets, it pushes its worldwide haul to $573 MILLION.)"Frozen" had a big weekend too, earning $66.7 million from Friday through Sunday, and $93 million from Wednesday through Sunday. That's the best DEBUT ever for a movie over Thanksgiving weekend, and puts it just behind "Catching Fire" on the all-time Thanksgiving list.

Everyone was expecting Miley Cyrus to do something outrageous at Sunday night’s American Music Awards, but it turned out to be her usually squeaky-clean pop rival who did the offending.Katy Perry raised plenty of eyebrows as she opened up the ceremony at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles with a culturally insensitive, Japanese-themed performance of “Unconditionally” which featured the singer dressed as a Geisha. Within minutes, fans and viewers were accusing her of cultural appropriation with one Twitter user commenting “This is the performance equivalent of an offensive Halloween costume.”

You're not going to believe this, but "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" made a ton of money at the box office this weekend. Shocking, right? Since Friday, it's pulled in an estimated $161 MILLION, which makes it the second best opening weekend of the year, behind "Iron Man 3". That's easily the best November opening ever and, if estimates hold up, the fourth-best opening weekend of all time, It's ahead of "The Dark Knight Rises" for the #4 spot by less than a million dollars. But since that's only based on the studio's estimates, we won't know anything for sure until the actual totals are reported later today. The original "Hunger Games" made $153 million when it came out in March of last year.

Since then, she has been fielding rumors of reconciliation with the "Heartbreaker" singer, and some reports of new flames.
TMZ reports that Lindsay Lohan’s appearance at the Foxwoods casino in Connecticut last night wasn’t as tidy as you’d imagine an appearance by Lindsay Lohan at a boozy casino party would be. Lindsay was paid $50,000 to appear at 10pm to pose for pictures and talk to fans on the red carpet (a red carpet for a Halloween party at a Connecticut casino? Sure, why not). Instead, Lindsay pulled a classic Lindsay Lohan move by appearing nearly 2 hours late at 11:43pm and blowing passed the red carpet.
