EXPECTING Actor and Parkinson’s-disease-research champ Michael J. Fox, 40, and actress wife Tracy Pollan, 41, are expecting their fourth child in December…. There’s another li’l cowpoke comin’ to the ranch. On May 31, country stars Faith Hill, 33, and Tim McGraw, 34, announced they’ll have baby No. 3 in January…. Oscar-nominated actress Cate Blanchett (The Man Who Cried), 32, and screenwriter hubby Andrew Upton, 35, said they expect their first child later this year…. Maybe he did it all for the nookie, but now Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst, 30, is expecting a son with an unidentified gal pal. Due in about three months, the boy will be called Dallas. In a statement, Durst described the mother-to-be: ”[She] lives in Minnesota…. She is a beautiful, smart, normal girl.” Durst has a daughter, Adriana, 9, from a previous relationship.
WEDDINGS Bad news, boys. Sexy Saturday Night Live co-anchor Tina Fey, 31, is taken. She married theater director Jeff Richmond, June 3 near Philadelphia — the first time for both.
ENGAGED So she’s really not gay. A spokeswoman for Anne Heche (Psycho), 32, said May 30 that the former Ellen DeGeneres paramour has agreed to wed cameraman Coleman ”Coley” Laffoon. No date was announced. Heche reportedly met Laffoon while he was shooting DeGeneres’ HBO special last summer.
COURTS So he’s really, really not gay. On June 4 in L.A., Tom Cruise, 38, sued Bold magazine publisher Michael Davis, 32, for $100 million, claiming Davis told news organizations that he knew of a videotape of Cruise having sex with a man. Davis denies the allegations, adding that he did not intend to damage Cruise. The actor, who doesn’t gladly suffer rumors about his sexual orientation, sued gay porn star and self-described ”erotic wrestler” Kyle Bradford in May for the same sum, alleging Bradford had claimed he’d slept with the superstar. (Bradford denied making such a claim.)… On May 31, a judge banned actor Vince Vaughn (Made), 31, and screenwriter Scott Rosenberg (Spider-Man), 38, from bars in Wilmington, N.C., and ordered them to undergo ”alcohol assessment” and pay $250 fines. The ruling follows an April pub brawl in which Vaughn, Rosenberg, and actor-director Steve Buscemi (28 Days), 43, tussled with locals; Buscemi was stabbed during the incident and later recovered. The movie folk had been in town filming Domestic Disturbance with John Travolta. If the two comply with the order, the misdemeanor fighting charges against them will be dropped, said a court official…. Alec Baldwin (Pearl Harbor), 43, is having a hell of a time with his partners on The Devil and Daniel Webster. On June 1 in L.A., the actor filed a $10 million suit against Cutting Edge Entertainment, alleging the production company misled him about the status of funding for the unfinished film and failed to pay him sufficiently for his acting, directing, and producing efforts. He seeks to have his directing credit removed. A Cutting Edge spokesman calls Baldwin’s claims ”completely untrue.”… On June 1, rapper Jamal Barrow (a.k.a. Shyne), 22, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for his involvement in a December 1999 shooting in which three Manhattan clubgoers were wounded. He plans to appeal. Shyne’s mentor, Sean ”Puffy” Combs, 31, was acquitted in March on weapons and bribery charges stemming from the same incident. In a statement, Combs called Shyne’s sentence ”unfair and extreme.”… On May 25, writer Gary K. Wolf, 60, who wrote the novel that inspired the 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit, sued Walt Disney Pictures, claiming the studio hasn’t fully paid him merchandising royalties. He seeks unspecified damages. Disney had no comment.
