Today’s top gossip:

Peaches Geldof‘s ex-husband Max Drummey has admitted that the pair’s marriage – which ended after just six months – was a complete sham, saying it was a bid to get more publicity for him and his band Chester French. “It was totally a publicity stunt. 100%. I have Peaches on retainer,” Drummey said. “She’s my friend for money. She also orchestrates publicity stunts for me, I’ve garnered so much amazing publicity from amazing people.”
Drummey also tried to joke about Chris Brown, who allegedly hit girlfriend Rihanna in February. “We’re guys who have been hurt by women and I’m glad people like Chris Brown are finally taking it back and hurting women,” Drummey is quoted as saying (Daily Mirror).
