Births On June 6, erstwhile TV cop Don Johnson, 52, and his wife, ex-teacher Kelley Johnson, 34, welcomed their second child, 8-pound 12-ounce Jasper Breckenridge. Daughter Atherton Grace is 2; Johnson has a son, Jesse, 19, from his relationship with actress Patti D’Arbanville, 51, and a daughter, Dakota, 12, from his second marriage to Melanie Griffith, 44…. On June 10, Internet hottie Cindy Margolis, 36, and restaurateur hubby Guy Starkman, 31, greeted their first child, 6-pound 14-ounce Nicholas Isaac.

Weddings Former Beatle Paul McCartney, 60, and ex-model Heather Mills, 34, came together June 11, in Glaslough, Ireland. Guests included Ringo Starr, 61. McCartney’s first wife, photographer Linda McCartney, died of breast cancer in 1998. It’s Mills’ second marriage…. Something borrowed, something NYPD Blue: On May 31, actress Sharon Lawrence, 40, and psychiatrist Tom Apostle, 39, tied the knot in the L.A. church where her Blue character wed Andy Sipowicz in 1995.

Splits Has J. Lo had Enough? On June 7, Jennifer Lopez, 31, reportedly left her husband of eight months, dancer-choreographer Cris Judd, 32. At press time, no divorce papers had been filed. Lopez’s spokesman had no comment; a rep for ex-beau Sean ”P. Diddy” Combs, 32, denied rumors that the couple had reunited.

Courts Don’t shelve that ”Free Winona” shirt. On June 6, an L.A. judge ordered Mr. Deeds starlet Winona Ryder, 30, to stand trial on burglary, grand-theft, and drug-possession charges. The decision came after a Saks Fifth Avenue guard testified that in December she saw the actress cut sensor tags off merchandise she hadn’t paid for. Prosecutors later told EW they hope to present evidence of Ryder’s alleged ”prior acts” at her trial, which at press time hadn’t been scheduled. Attorneys for Ryder did not return calls…. The bittersweet lowdown: On June 11, Woody Allen, 66, settled his suit against his former producer Jean Doumanian, 67, and her partner-paramour Jacqui Safra, 54. Terms weren’t disclosed. The couple had disputed Allen’s claim that they cheated him out of $12 million in profits…. On June 5, a Florida court dropped pot-possession charges against former Psychic Friends pitchwoman Dionne Warwick, 61, who was arrested May 12 in Miami. In turn, the Grammy winner attended a ”drug assessment” program and will make an antidrug public-service announcement. In a statement, Warwick said she remains ”puzzled” about her arrest.

Arrests What a strange trip, even for hemp-happy Cheers alum Woody Harrelson, 40, who was arrested for ”suspicion of criminal damage” after a car chase through London in the wee hours of June 6. According to police, Harrelson broke the ashtray and a lock in one cab before jumping into another and speeding away. Cornered by cops, the actor reportedly fled on foot. Scotland Yard will decide whether to file formal charges before Harrelson returns for a July 1 hearing. His publicist says Harrelson ”offered to pay for the damages and apologized.”… On June 4, federal prosecutors in Brooklyn charged Steven Seagal‘s ex-partner and producer Julius Nasso (Fire Down Below), 50, with extortion. According to court papers, Nasso was nabbed in a dragnet in which 17 alleged Gambino crime family associates were charged with a total of 68 felonies. Authorities say Nasso tried ”to extort hundreds of thousands of dollars from an individual in the film industry,” whom Nasso’s attorney identifies as Seagal, 50. In March, Nasso sued the action star for $60 million for allegedly backing out of a four-film deal in 1990. Nasso’s lawyer calls the new charges ”ridiculous,” claiming that in December Seagal ”offered $500,000” to Nasso. Seagal’s attorney, disputing that claim, calls the suit ”meritless.”
