The Playboy issue featuring Lindsay Lohan is flying off the shelves says Playboy founder Hugh Hefner. But it all depends on who you talk to. Hefner says that the issue is breaking sales records. However, Fox News and CNN are reporting lackluster sales based on calls to various newsstands around the country. CNN found that only one of the 12 retailers they contacted had sold out of the issue. If the sales are as good as Hefner states, this is good news given all that went wrong with the issue. First they had to do an entire re-shoot, (reportedly due to Lindsey’s bad teeth) Then the photos leaked out early, forcing Playboy to release the issue before they wanted to. And then a travel problem caused Lohan to miss her interview introducing the photos on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” Lohan was reportedly paid in the range of $1 million to bare all for the publication.

Lakers star Kobe Bryant and his wife, Vanessa, are taking great pains to keep the details of their pending divorce under wraps by negotiating the terms privately.But legal experts said it’s clear Bryant’s wife will leave the marriage with a windfall. Vanessa Bryant filed the divorce petition Friday, citing “irreconcilable differences.” The couple then issued a joint statement saying they had “resolved all the issues incident to their divorce privately.”
Some estimates put Bryant’s net worth at $150 million. Legal experts said Vanessa will probably receive at least $75 million in addition to ongoing spousal and child support.
Last season, as the NBA’s highest-paid player, Kobe Bryant earned $24.8 million in salary, and his contract extension signed last year is worth $83.5 million. Forbes estimates that with endorsement deals, Bryant last year earned $53 million before taxes and agent fees.
The fact the marriage lasted 10 years gives Vanessa several advantages under California divorce law. After passing the 10-year mark, attorney Dmitry Gorin said, a marriage is defined as a lengthy one, which means the spouse is allowed to maintain her standard of living after the split. Gorin said Vanessa Bryant may be entitled to permanent spousal support and may even be part of Kobe Bryant’s retirement plans. She’ll probably get “more than enough for many lifetimes,” Gorin said. Vanessa’s mother told The Times several years ago that the couple did not sign a prenuptial agreement when they tied the knot in 2001. If true, that would entitle Vanessa to half of their community property.
