The photographer Alec Baldwin allegedly punched Tuesday morning has filed a police report.
According to Gossip Cop, New York Daily News photographer Marcus Santos has filed an assault complaint with the New York Police Department after this morning's incident.
The actor's rep released a statement denying that Baldwin ever threw a punch, but Baldwin has made his own statements about the incident, tweeting throughout the day.
"The photographer who assaulted me has (belatedly) gone to a hospital claiming injuries. Colin Myler and his NOTW scams come to NY ...," he wrote on Tuesday afternoon.
Isn't it funny how celebrities who hate photographers for violating their privacy couldn't get off Twitter if their careers depended on it?
The Daily News alleges the "30 Rock" actor punched photographer Marcus Santos outside of the city Marriage License Bureau on Worth Street.
According to the paper, Baldwin and his fiancee Hilaria Thomas were exiting the building after just obtaining a marriage license.
TMZ has a picture of Baldwin lunging at the photographer, who seems to be lunging backward.
Santos and other paparazzi were waiting outside when the 54-year-old actor approached with "an angry glare." The actor reportedly asked the photographers to step back and Santos claims they began to give Baldwin some space. Baldwin then allegedly grabbed another Daily News photographer, and Santos demanded that the
"I said, 'Don't touch him.' I knew he was going to attack me. I stepped back, and he kept coming," Santos told the paper. "He comes after me, starts shoving and punching me -- one time, right in the chin. And then he started shoving me, and pushing me. Then he goes the other way."
Baldwin claims in one of his Twitter posts that one of the photographers nearly hit him in the face with a camera.
JOHNNY DEPP BACK ON THE MARKET: After months of rumors, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis are confirming that they've split up.
After 14 years and two children together, the couple "have amicably separated," Depp's publicist told E! News Tuesday.
She probably couldn't take him stealing all her makeup anymore.
Rumors that the actor, 49, and Paradis, 39, had split began to surface in January 2012. At the time, Paradis adamantly denied their relationship was on the rocks.
"Yes it's false! Of course it's false," she told French television program Grand Journal. She added that it worried her how these rumors "can truly harm my family" and affect her and Depp's two kids, 11-year-old Lily and 9-year-old Jack.
In the statement released to E! News Tuesday, Depp's publicist asked for everyone to "please respect their privacy and, more importantly, the privacy of their children."
The split was first reported by Entertainment Tonight.
OCTOMOM FACING FORECLOSURE: Octomom's home has officially been foreclosed upon.
Nadya Suleman's house officially went back to the bank after a foreclosure auction Tuesday morning at which no one bid.
If an auction happens in the forest, and no one hears a bid, is it still an auction?
Amer Haddadin, the man who owned the La Habra home, told TMZ the auction took place Tuesday morning, but because no one bid on the property, it went back to the bank.
The opening bid was $355,643. No word on whether the crayon graffiti was included in that price.
Suleman -- famous for giving birth to eight children in 2009 after undergoing fertility treatment, bringing her brood to 14 -- wasn't making the monthly payments. The bank will have to initiate eviction proceedings to kick her and family out.
In other breathtaking Octomom news, strip club T's Lounge in West Palm Beach, Fla., is threatening to sue her, after she quit her stripping job because a club employee called her a "little bit crazy" on TV.
Well, that co-worker was dead wrong. Having 14 kids is incredibly crazy.
TMZ reports that Suleman's lawyers say she has no plans to appear at T's, despite her agreement to dance there.
BRITNEY GETS EMOTIONAL: Britney Spears became emotional Sunday when a familiar face showed up at the Bay Area auditions for "The X Factor" on Sunday and revealed a secret.
When a male contestant stepped onto the Oracle Arena stage "You could see that Britney recognized him straight away," a source told People.com. "She got this huge smile on her face and her eyes lit up. It was so sweet."
That's nice that Kevin Federline is back, trying to get a job again.
"I know him," said Spears, who was sitting on the panel with Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid and Demi Lovato. "We did a duet together ten years ago."
People.com did not identify the singer, but subsequent reports noted it was Don Philip, who performed a duet with Spears on the ballad "I Will Still Love You," which appeared on her first album "... Baby One More Time."
When the singer started to cry and told the judges and the audience, "I'm gay," the audition became emotionally charged.
"At the time I didn't think I was worthy," he told Britney. "I didn't think you thought it was OK that I am gay."
Spears said "I think it is fine you are gay," she said.
She better say that, or no one will show to dance auditions for her next tour.
"When he started crying and saying he thought he'd never see her again and that he'd had a lot to deal with, Britney was comforting him to calm him," the source says.
But during his audition, Spears was visibly shaken.
"She's been through a lot in those ten years, too, so it must have been a shock for her to see him," the source says. "You could tell she was emotional and she really felt for him especially when he was crying, but she also stayed calm."
In the end, Spears gave the singer a typically straightforward critique.
"She handled it unbelievably well and really stepped up to the situation," says the source, who would not confirm the identity of the singer or whether he made it through the audition. "It was probably the most personal and emotional situation for her that's happened so far on "X Factor," and she took it totally in stride in front of a live audience of thousands."
BOBBY BROWN GETS MARRIED: Bobby Brown is off the market.
I know ... it's difficult for you ladies to hear.
Brown married Alicia Etheredge, his manager and the mother of his 3-year-old son Cassius, on Monday in Honolulu. The ceremony was private, Either that, or no one showed up.
According to People.com, Brown was surrounded by some of his kids Landon, La'Princia, Bobby Jr. and Cassius. Bobbi Kristina -- Brown's daughter with ex-wife Whitney Houston -- was apparently otherwise engaged.
Perhaps confusing a 2012 wedding ceremony with a 1987 video shoot, Brown wore red pants and a pair of white Adidas shoes.
Brown and Etheredge got engaged back in 2010, three years after his divorce from Houston.
MIKE TYSON GOES TO BROADWAY: Mike Tyson is headed to Broadway.
The former boxer announced Monday he will team with director Spike Lee to bring his one-man show, "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth," to the Longacre Theatre for six nights only, July 31 to Aug. 5.
And if people don't clap, he'll punch them.
The show, a raw confessional on the highs and lows of the life of the retired heavyweight and tabloid target, will mark both Tyson's and Lee's debut on Broadway. It made its debut in April for a weeklong run at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
"I'm very vulnerable and I'm just telling you who I am and where I'm from and how this happened," Tyson said at a news conference at the Longacre, wearing white pants, a white shirt and a gray jacket.
Tyson, like Lee a Brooklyn native, became the youngest-ever heavyweight champion in 1986, when he won his title as a 20-year-old. His life since then has been marred by accusations of domestic violence, rape, drug use, and the death of his young daughter.
"It takes courage to get in the ring," said Lee, who urges theatergoers to have an open mind when it comes to the work. "But it takes courage to get on the stage."
Right. And if people don't clap, he'll punch them.
Tyson, 46, said he was inspired to do a one-man show after watching Chazz Palminteri tell stories about growing up in his show "A Bronx Tale." The boxer said: "I'm really just excited about this genre here."
Tyson said that the show would be "raw" and "filthy" and that he would show his vulnerable side. It will include tales about his stormy marriage to actress Robin Givens, his time in prison, his relationship with his trainer and surrogate father, Cus D'Amato, and the time he spent in a psychiatric clinic as a result of his addiction to cocaine.
One story sure to return is one in which he spotted Givens returning to her home in his car with Brad Pitt.
Brad Pitt is lucky to be alive.
The pair will start work on it after the July Fourth holiday.
"It's a great story and he tells it masterfully," said Lee, who calls it a tale of redemption that only needs some tweaking from the Vegas edition. "He's lifted himself off the canvas."
Tyson began boxing in a facility for juvenile delinquents in upstate New York at the age of 12. Eight years later, he became the youngest heavyweight champion ever when he knocked out Trevor Berbick. But in 1990, he was defeated by James "Buster" Douglas in one of the biggest upsets in boxing history, and soon after he was convicted of raping a beauty pageant contestant in Indianapolis. Tyson, who still denies he raped the woman, served three years in prison.
As his career continued, so did his bizarre behavior. He bit off a piece of Evander Holyfield's ear during a boxing match and once threatened to eat the children of heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis. There have been charges of cocaine possession, driving under the influence, scuffles with photographers, parts in films like "The Hangover" franchise and tragedy, including the accidental death of his 4-year-old daughter, Exodus. He said he's been clean and happily remarried for the past few years.
