Nugent admits illegal bear kill
In a plea deal with the feds, Ted Nugent has admitted he illegally killed a black bear in Alaska two years ago. He apparently wounded one bear, then killed a second, breaking a “one bag” rule. He must pay a $10,000 fine and create a 30- to 60-second public service announcement about responsible hunting on his outdoors cable TV show, Spirit of the Wild. His lawyer says the law is preposterous.

Two weeks after Brangelina announced plans to wed, the tabs say Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are planning a dueling wedding this summer in Jen’s dad’s homeland, the paradisal island of Crete, as a response to the (reported) decision by Jen’s ex, Brad Pitt, to marry Jen nemesis Angelina Jolie this summer in France. What’s more, People says reunited honeys Justin Timberlake, 31, and Jessica Biel, 30, want a really big wedding, also this summer. No other human will be able to marry after this.
Back in reality: None of this has been confirmed by fact. Fact, Jen’s rep says the Crete report is a “total fabrication.”
