Celebrity Scoops…updated Wednesday, 8.23.17

Mark WahlbergSay hello to the world’s highest paid actor…Mark Wahlberg. The 46-year-old raked in an estimated $68 million in 2017 thanks to his “Daddy’s Home 2” and “Transformers: The Last Knight” flicks. Those following on Forbes’ top earners list include: Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson with $65 million, Vin Diesel with $54.5 million for “XXX: The Return of Xander Cage” and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”, Adam Sandler with $50.5 million and Jackie Chan rounding out the top vie with $49 million. Last week the magazine declared Emma Stone as the world’s highest paid actress with $26 million – and it noted that the top 10 men earned $488.5 million – nearly three times the amount the top 10 women earned $172.5 million.

Crazy…a dispute between Jon and Kate Gosslin broke out yesterday afternoon…in an orthodontist’s office. Cops were called to the scene around 1:10pm in Wyomissing, PA, due to a “verbal domestic dispute over child custody involving one minor (female/13 years old).” TMZ reports one took their daughter to the orthodontist and the argument escalated over who would take her home. A Wyomissing Police Department spokesperson told “Entertainment Tonight”: “No one was arrested and the daughter did go home with the father after she expressed that was her desire to do.” The former stars of “Jon & Kate Plus 8” divorced in 2009. This gives new meaning to a painful trip to the dentist!!!
