Morning Sideboob: Watch Out! Charlie Sheen Goes After John Mayer
Charlie Says John Mayer’s Lawsuit Is Revenge for Rolling Stone Cover
All of life’s problems may boil down to magazine covers. It’s a new theory we’re working on. Supporting research includes Drake vs. Philip Seymour Hoffman (Rolling Stone), Kimye vs. the universe (Vogue), and now we’ve got the case of Charlie Sheen vs. John Mayer (Rolling Stone).
John Mayer is a watch nerd. Big-time. He’s spent $5 million on timepieces.
A lot of the watches were purchased through his friend Bob Maron, who happens to be a watch dealer. Maron is also a close personal friend of Charlie Sheen.
When Mayer sent one of his Rolexes to the manufacturer for repair, he was told it wasn’t “authentic.”
Mayer claims Maron admitted to him Rolex was right but called it an “isolated event.” Mayer says Maron took the watch back and gave him a credit, which Mayer used to buy another Rolex. Mayer claims in 2011 Rolex informed him at least 7 of the watches Maron sold him were counterfeit. Apparently Mayer is still satisfied with some of the watches, but he wants a refund for the 7, which totals $656,000.
Denied the refund, Mayer filed a lawsuit.
Maron’s lawyer told TMZ: “John Mayer, who briefly claimed expertise in Rolexes but now has apparently changed his mind, has brought a lawsuit that is legally and factually meritless. Mr. Maron refuses to pay Mr. Mayer a cent to settle his frivolous claim, and will instead defeat him in court.”
Now here’s where Sheen comes into the picture. Also a big watch collector, Sheen has become buddies with Maron and says the lawsuit is all about Sheen getting a Rolling Stone cover over Mayer.
He explains here:
Feeling somewhat responsible, Martin Sheen just wants everyone to get along.
Peace and love.
Lady Gaga Is Submissive to Her Boyfriend
While Lady Gaga may be making all the mind-bogling decisions in her career, when it comes to her relationship with actor Taylor Kinney, she wants everyone to know, he’s in the driver’s seat.
On Sirius XM’s The Morning Mash Up, Gaga copped to being submissive to her man.
He’s totally in charge. I mean, when I am home, I am like, shoes are off, I’m making him dinner. He has a job, too, and he is really busy! I’m in charge all day long, the last thing I want to do is tell him what to do. It’s not good for relationships to tell men what to do.
She can bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan.
Besides, after a long day of picking out Michael Jackson, Jesus, and Gandhi impersonators and wrangling the cast of the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” (including Giggy), a girl can get tuckered out. Check out Lady Gaga’s newest video for G.U.Y. as proof.
We hope you didn’t really sit through the 4 minutes of credits.
Separation Makes Robin Thicke Happy
Looks like Robin Thicke is cooling it on Operation: Get My Wife Back. The crooner was dedicating songs at his concerts to his estranged wife Paula Patton, pouring his heart out about how he wanted to win her back. No more. Either he’s realized that ship has sailed or he’s taking a liking to the single life, cuz he’s singing a new tune.
My music is very honest about what I’m going through and my songs are about my life. And my relationship with her was 21 years of my life, so I just thought it was important to me to let people know how much she means to me. We’re both doing well. We’re both very happy right now—much happier. Everything about this moment in my life—this amazing year I just had and what I’m going through personally—has actually ignited some of the best writing I’ve done in a long time. Whatever everybody’s wondering about, they’re going to hear it all in the album.
Additionally, Robin’s goals for the year include “to be a great father and hopefully write some great music, put on some great shows, and be a great friend to Paula.”
You’re officially in the “friend zone,” Paula. We hope your weren’t playing hard to get, girl.
Sideboob of the Day
None other than Robin Thicke’s soon-to-be-ex Paula Patton. You were punching way above your weight there, guy.
