Lindsay Lohan fires back at "gay' remark
LOS ANGELES - Lindsay Lohan said Friday that police have no business getting involved in her personal life, a day after the police chief explained that the paparazzi were no longer an issue - in part because the 22-year-old actress had evidently ""gone gay.'
""Police chiefs shouldn't get involved in everyone else's business when it comes to their personal life. It's inappropriate,' Lohan said in a video shot by paparazzi Friday and posted on TMZ.com. In the footage, Lohan and gal pal Samantha Ronson are trekking through the Los Angeles Airport on their way to catch a flight to Chicago.

Author may sue ex-guard over book
LONDON - Author Salman Rushdie has threatened to sue a publisher over a book by a former bodyguard that he said portrays him as cheap, nasty and arrogant and depicts his police guards as ""losers' who drank on duty.
Rushdie said Saturday that the book, ""On Her Majesty's Service,' contained ""a bunch of lies.' The author's lawyer said he had written to the publisher demanding that the as-yet-unpublished memoir be withdrawn.
The book was co-written by Ron Evans, a former Metropolitan Police officer who was one of the team guarding Rushdie while he was under an Iranian-backed death threat for his 1988 novel ""The Satanic Verses.'
