Does having tiger blood and Adonis DNA make you immune to rehab? Charlie Sheen thinks so, since he told Good Morning America this week that he “doesn’t believe in rehab anymore.” (Did he ever?) “It’s not for me,” he said. “It’s not for everyone. It’s not a one-size-fits-all and it didn’t fit me.” Given the critical reception to his new show, Anger Management, comedy might not fit him, either.

It may be a paparazzi’s dream to end up driving around with an intoxicated Lindsay Lohan, but it was a nightmare for three men who ended up held captive on a joyride with Lohan back in 2007 after leaving a party. She was ultimately arrested for DUI, and the men sued for false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and assault and battery. Now, she’s finally settled with them, although details of the settlement haven’t yet been released. Glad to hear she’s putting that Liz & Dick paycheck to good use.

Despite a planned appearance at the music festival T in the Park, Libertines frontman (and Kate Moss’ famous ex) Pete Doherty has instead returned to rehab for the umpteenth time—this time going halfway across the world to Thailand for treatment. Doherty’s manager claimed that the “rigorous treatment programme” in Chiang Mai should finally “lead him to recovery once and for all.” 

File under “Completely Predictable and Not at All Surprising: Snoop Dogg was detained at a Norwegian airport yesterday after customs officials found eight grams of marijuana in his possession. in Norway, possession under 15 grams is punishable with a mere fine, which amounted to less than $2,000. Reportedly, Snoop paid it promptly and was on his way: a model stoner.

After a violent brawl between R&B stars Drake and Chris Brown’s respective entourages resulted in several injuries, the nightclub in question—New York’s W.i.P. and its adjoining club Greenhouse—have had their liquor licenses suspended, with the organization’s chairman saying they “would not tolerate violent bars that break the law."
