GOSSIP 2 GO 9/9APPLE WON'T FALL FAR FROM THIS TREE
GWYNETH Paltrow has declared war on the paparazzi because she feels her daughter, Apple, is in danger. The star is afraid she'll end up like Princess Di. "If I have my daughter in the car and they are making me nervous, I'll do whatever I have to do," Paltrow tells V Life. "I keep a whole log. I take pictures of their cars, write down license plate numbers, everything. If they do it again, I can go to the police. I know my rights, and believe me, I will have them arrested. I will stop at nothing." Paltrow gave up her too-accessible West Village townhouse in favor of a high-security TriBeCa pad to foil the photogs.
MARY KATE MAY NOT EAT FOOD, BUT SHE SURE IS MAN HUNGRY
MINI-mogul Mary-Kate Olsen is furious at hot model May Andersen for hitting on her ex, David Katzenberg, we're told. The other day our spy spotted Olsen on a TriBeCa street corner screaming into her cellphone about the duplicitous Danish delight. "I'll kill that [bleep]ing slut!" Olsen screeched to her pal. Olsen and Katzenberg, son of toothy Hollywood heavyweight Jeffrey Katzenberg, broke up last year, but her feelings for him are obviously still strong. More recently she's been linked to gargantuan Greek shipping heir Stavros Niarchos III. If Andersen, a party-loving gal with a body built for sin, is doing the nasty with Katzenberg, it must mean her relationship with "Jackass" star Steve-O has fizzled. "That's just silly gossip," Olsen's rep assures us. "It sounds ridiculous. The Katzenberg thing is ancient history at this point." "We never comment on the girls' personal lives," a rep for Andersen's agency tells us.
CHRISTINA'S A BIGGER HAG THAN I
The New York Post reports Christina Aguilera was spotted holding court with several admiring males in a cabana at West Hollywood gay hotspot The Abbey, with the curtains closed for privacy. No word if one of those admiring males was her fiancé, Jordan Bratman.
MARIAH KNOCKED DOWN BY GOLD DIGGER
As summer comes to a close, so does the domination of Mariah Carey’s “We Belong Together.” The ballad drops down to No. 4 on the Hot 100 following its summer-long death grip at No. 1 for 14 of the last 15 weeks.
Kanye West’s “Gold Digger” featuring Jamie Foxx rockets 19-1 to claim the top spot, leaving Carey’s other single, “Shake it Off,” at No. 2 for a second week. On the Pop 100, the cut makes an unheard of 94-2 leap.
Sean “Diddy” Combs is reportedly in talks to open a fabulous Atlantic City hotel that would bare his name.
The Bad Boy brother is said to be in talks with the property developers who helped Cindy Crawford's husband, Rande Gerber, launch his bars and restaurants.
Gerber is currently planning a $3 billion Las Vegas resort with “Ocean's Twelve” actors George Clooney and Brad Pitt.
Clooney hopes Pitt, who has a love for architecture, will design the project, to include 4,400 hotel rooms and a 48,000-square-foot casino.
BIGGIE'S MAMA TELLS IT LIKE IT IS(OR ISN'T) IN NEW MEMOIR
In "Biggie: Voletta Wallace Remembers Her Son," due out Oct. 25 from Simon & Schuster's Atria books, Wallace alleges that Combs - who signed Biggie to his Bad Boy record label in the 1990s - and Kim, Biggie's sometime lover, both used him to further their own careers.
"I'm glad my son does not have to witness that the very people that he thought he could ride and die with wouldn't think twice about using his mother," Wallace writes about her late son Christopher, Combs and Kimberly Jones. "I am glad that he's not here to see how they have used his image and his name."
She adds: "I believe Sean loved my son - after he was dead. I used to tell Christopher all the time not to trust Sean."
Ever since Biggie's death, Combs has regularly invoked his memory, as he did weeks ago when he performed an elaborate tribute at the MTV Video Music Awards in Miami.
Wallace accuses Lil' Kim of pilfering her New Jersey home after she let her use it for a magazine interview.
When the magazine hit the stands, "The first picture I saw was Kim wearing my son's mink coat, holding his chain and wearing his hat. I was in shock," Wallace writes. "I felt violated."
Wallace continues: "I read the entire article and learned that not only was Kim wearing things belonging to my son, but she claimed that the home belonged to her as well. This experience helped me draw my own opinions about Kim. And they weren't good."
PR reps for both Diddy and Kim were mum yesterday.
