The Star Wars director, 68, is engaged to DreamWorks animation chairman Mellody Hobson, a rep for Lucasfilm confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday.Hobson, 43, has been dating Lucas since 2006. This will be her first marriage and Lucas's second; he previously was married to film editor Marcia Lou Griffin. The exes adopted a daughter Amanda before their 1983 divorce. Lucas went on to adopt two more children. Lucas's fiancée is also a contributor to Good Morning America's financial segments and has received many honors, including a 2002 listing as one of Esquire's "Best and Brightest" in America.Lucas has made headlines of his own, recently donating to an education foundation much of the $4 billion from his sale of Lucasfilm to Disney. According to THR, Lucas said at the time, "As I start a new chapter in my life, it is gratifying that I have the opportunity to devote more time and resources to philanthropy."
$55,000 ... that's how much it took for the chick from Michael Jackson's "Thriller" music video to call a truce in her war with the MJ estate ... TMZ has learned. TMZ broke the story ... Ola Ray settled her lawsuit with the estate earlier this year, and now we know what for ... $55,000 to Ola ... and $20,000 to her lawyer. Ola originally filed the suit against MJ and his production company in May 2009 -- a month before Jackson passed away -- claiming breach of contract. Ola said she was still owed a massive chunk of the "Thriller" profits ... nearly 30 years after it was released.The director of the music video John Landis -- who filed a similar lawsuit against the estate -- has also settled ... but he wanted in excess of $2 million, so we're guessing he got a little more than Ola.
The holidays have come in gone, but not for Honey Boo Boo! TLC kicks off its Here Come Honey Boo Boo "Holladay" specials Sunday, Jan. 6 with a Halloween episode.For Halloween this year, the kids decide to try to cure June "Mama" Shannon of her greatest fear -- mayonnaise!"I can't stand mayonnaise," Mama says, though she admits she will eat potato salad or a tuna salad sandwich if someone else makes it and she can't see it. "The reason why is because when I was growing up, the babysitter I had, we ate mayonnaise sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack . . . I can't talk about it. It is making my flesh crawl."
If Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana were still dating, you'd think they would have spent the holidays together. But nope, the twosome—who have never actually publicly confirmed they were a couple ever since they became more than just friends during the making of The Words—were thousands of miles apart. They called it quits just before the holidays a source confirms to E! News. (The New York Post was the first to report the split.)
Bristol Palin is begging for protection against an obsessed stalker ... claiming the dude sent her a creepy wedding proposal -- complete with a ring -- and even showed up at her mom's house on her son Tripp's birthday ... TMZ has learned.According to court docs ... the "Dancing with the Stars" all-star obtained a temporary restraining against Michael Cummings -- a 39-year-old Texan she claims she's never met ... and only came into contact with after he sent her an engagement ring, along with a note saying, "I (heart) you."Bristol alleges Cummings was later spotted at her mom Sarah Palin's house on December 27 -- Tripp's fourth birthday -- at which point she immediately filed for protection. She's hoping to make the order more permanent at a hearing later this month.Considering Cumming's own mom called local police to tell them her "unstable" son was in town to see Bristol ... protection's probably the right way to go

Rex Ryan’s loyalty to Mark Sanchez may not be set in stone, but it is etched in ink. From the category of “you just can’t make this stuff up,” Ryan will carry Sanchez around with him for the rest of his life. It will be too painful to get rid of him, as much as that may pain Jets fans. The embattled Jets coach was photographed by the Daily News on Thursday at The Atlantis in the Bahamas lounging by the pool reading a book. The photo revealed an interesting tattoo on Ryan’s right arm. Just below a shamrock surrounded by the names of his sons Payton and Seth and his wife Michelle, is a drawing of a blonde-haired lady bearing a striking resemblance to Michelle wearing Sanchez’s No. 6 green jersey and nothing else.
