Lindsay's family gets special permission to visit on a week day. A photograph of Mel Gibson's possibly abused baby surfaces. Britney Spears is possibly on Team Mel. Katy Perry floats in a cloud of cotton candy. Thursday gossip is tentative.

  • Lindsay Lohan is in jail, but she is not alone: Dina and Ali Lohan (and a random lady holding Ali's hand) made a special visit yesterday, outside of regular visiting hours. Usually visitors are limited to weekends, but the sheriff lets people come on weekdays if there's a reason for it. Like, you know, a paparazzi clusterfuck ruining everyone else's weekend visits. Now everyone's talking about "Lindsay's special treatment," with various just-released inmates talking about why they loathe or love Lindsay. "Every time she walks [out of her cell], they put us, the whole jail, on lockdown," said a lady who coexisted with LiLo at Lynwood for a couple hours or something. Prediction: "Lindsay Lohan prisonmate" becomes the new "Tiger Woods mistress." When can we expect a satirical lesbian porno? [NYPost, TMZ, image via Splash]
  • Speaking of LiLo, she's reportedly scheduled for the cover of October's Vanity Fair. Apparently they planned the shoot and interview before she was sentenced to jail, but she made good and posed aboard Judy Garland's old yacht (a new suicidal actress fetish?) wearing an evening gown to cover her booze-sniffing SCRAM ankle bracelet. Complex is so jealous right now. [GossipCop]
  • The terrible material leaking from the Mel Gibson-Oksana Grigorieva mess reaches a startling new low: A picture of their infant daughter Lucia, allegedly sporting an abrasion on her face from the time Mel hit Oksana while she was holding Lucia. [Radar]
  • Apparently Britney Spears is Team Mel: "Mel has been talking to her a lot. They speak on the phone all the time, usually late at night... Mel was one of the only people who reached out to help Britney when she was at her lowest point." This story is baffling, strange, and probably fake. Now that he's in charge of her conservatorship, Jamie Spears does a pretty good job keeping Brit away from other celebrities—much less toxic clouds of alcoholic rage, like Mel. But the Schadenfreude seekers can always dream. [InTouch]
  • Speaking of heinous domestic disputes: Kate Major—the Jon Gosselin ex who is now engaged to Michael Lohan—reported Michael to the police. Apparently he kicked her in the face while she was lying on the ground. The police issued an order of protection. [TMZ, TMZ]
  • Are Sandra Bullock and Jesse James getting back together? This was Life & Style's cover story yesterday, and Popeater is buzzing about it, too. L&S says Sandra's commitment to Jesse's children—whom she co-parented for five years—is driving them together. Jesse just won a custody hearing that will allow him to take the kids to Austin, Texas, where Sandra spends most of her time, and where Jesse just bought a $2 million mansion. Popeater quotes a "friend of the actress" (do we really believe anything these people say, after they all missed the story of Sandra's baby? What kind of "friend" doesn't know her bestie has been raising a new child for months?) who says, "Sandra has made it clear that Jesse is the love of her life... Sandra misses him and their life together every single day." But enough to forgive a public humiliation second only to Elin Nordegren's? Do we believe Jesse is really that great a catch?

  • Brittany Murphy's deceased husband Simon Monjack's cause of death has been announced: Acute pneumonia and severe anemia, with multiple prescription drugs in his blood stream. Same cause of death as Brittany. [TMZ]

Katy Perry's new album cover features her naked in a cloud of cotton candy. There is a big picture here, if you're into that sort of thing. [X17]

  • Christina Applegate is pregnant with fiance Martyn Lenoble's child. Mazel tov! [People]
  • Leonardo DiCaprio says he was better at picking up chicks before Titanic: "I had better success meeting girls before Titanic. My interactions with them didn't have all the stigma behind it, not to mention there wasn't a perception of her talking to me for only one reason." This from a guy who only dates world-famous supermodels. [RollingStone]
