Sylvester Stallone: oppressive sex fiend or innocent victim?

Stripper Margie Carr has filed a sexual assault suit against the "Rambo" star, accusing him of "physically and sexually" abusing her at a gym last year. Carr, who also claims to have had a decade-long affair with the married actor, is seeking damages for the emotional distress caused by Stallone's alleged "oppressive and malicious actions."

But Stallone's people say the whole thing's a big scam brought by a "hanger-on" at the actor's gym.

"This lawsuit is completely frivolous and without merit," Marty Singer, Stallone's attorney, told the press. "It's unfortunate that in America, anyone can make up claims and sue anyone."

Goddamn America ...

There's gratitude for ya

"She's boring. We only had her in it because she did it free."

-- Kian Egan, of the Irish band Westlife, on Claudia Schiffer, who appears in the video for the band's single "Uptown Girl."

Can't we all just be friends and get along?

Now that their war of words has apparently escalated into gunplay, Foxy Brown says she hopes she and Lil' Kim can kiss and make up.

"I really don't know how it started," Brown said of the rappers' longstanding feud in an interview Monday with MTV News. "But Russell [Simmons] and I, we got together, and I said, 'Russell, I want to call a truce.'

"I want to have a sit-down with Kim," Brown continued. "I don't care what it is. Let's just end it. We can even do a collaboration. We're bigger than this. If it has to start with me, let it start with me."

But Brown says Kim's people "weren't responsive" to overtures on her behalf by Simmons, who heads up her label, Def Jam/Def Soul.

I guess they're still a lil' mad.

Jacko gets saddo

"I need a tissue. I'm sorry."

-- Michael Jackson, breaking down in tears while talking about his father's inability to express his love and his own thwarted desire "to be a typical little boy" at Oxford University on Tuesday.

Juicy bits

Was Michael Jackson too overcome by the emotions stirred up in his Oxford Union address to make it to his good buddy Uri Geller's wedding on time? Ananova reports that Jacko showed up two hours late Wednesday for the psychic's backyard nuptials, in which he was serving as best man. No, I don't suppose that, when he finally did arrive, the wedding party told him to just beat it.

Eh-oh! Jerry Falwell may soon be back on the Teletubby warpath. The U.K. Sun reports that Pui Fan Lee, the actress who played Po (the red one) in "The Teletubbies," is set to star in "one of the most explicit scenes ever shown on British telly." Lee (who reportedly lives with her boyfriend) will play "sex-mad" lesbian Jaye on the Channel 4 series "Metrosexuality," in which she is seen "romping naked with another woman and performing oral sex." As one perspicuous insider points out to the Sun, "It's a very different role to the one Pui is used to." And one Tinky-Winky can only dream of ...

Does David Cassidy know about this? The New York Daily News reports that in an upcoming Talk magazine piece, Eminem can be heard freestyling words to the Partridge Family classics "I Can Feel Your Heart Beat" and "I Think I Love You." At his producer Dr. Dre's request, the Slim Shady rapper spits out a verse: "My son's 16 came to say he had no place to stay ... I said he wasn't mine, slammed the door in his face." Sounds like a family problem even Reuben couldn't fix.

One indication that Drew Barrymore and Tom Green may actually be planning a splashy summer wedding: Swimwear designer Malia Mills tells USA Weekend magazine that Barrymore recently snapped up a bikini emblazoned with the words "Just Married." OK, but where do you tie the cans?

Getting paid to eat chocolate all day might be your idea of a dream job, but Johnny Depp says it bites. "If I had any deep love for chocolate, it was destroyed during the filming of that movie, just having to eat such a lot of it," Depp tells Ananova of his chocolate-scarfing role opposite Juliette Binoche in the film "Chocolat." "It was a little much -- it was kind of rich, dark, bitter chocolate. After about seven of them it tends to not have a nice effect." So that's what's eating Gilbert Grape ...
