Legendary New York gossip columnist Liz Smith dies at 94

Former New York Post gossip columnist Liz Smith, who won her own A-list status with her witty chronicling of the glitterati, died of natural causes on Sunday, said her literary agent, Joni Evans.

Smith, who was one of the first gossips to start covering Madonna, was also responsible for officially breaking the news of Madonna’s pregnancy with her now 21-year-old daughter, Lourdes Leon, in the New York Post. At the time, Smith was a columnist at the paper, and said, “Madonna wanted the news released in as low-key a manner as possible” – which, for the pop star, meant it was Page 1 news.

Smith later defended Madonna amid a brouhaha surrounding her marital status, pointing to her divorce from Sean Penn as her impetus behind not marrying Lourdes’s father, trainer Carlos Leon. Said Smith, “Madonna can’t do anything right as far as most of the press is concerned. I think if she took the veil it would be criticized.”

Years later, Smith said of their friendship, “She’s an extremely talented, deeply complicated woman. We were close for a while, or as close as anyone can get to her. The first time we met, she glowered at me and said, ‘Aren’t you scared of me?’ I just laughed. We got along real well after that.”

Madonna dodges punishment in worn underwear lawsuit

Madonna ducked a legal sanction Thursday for refusing to have her deposition videotaped in her lawsuit over the auction of some of her memorabilia, including a pair of worn satin panties and a love letter from late rapper Tupac Shakur.

The Queen of Pop is suing former pal Darlene Lutz for consigning her “highly personal items” to the online auctioneer Gotta Have It! Collectibles last summer, claiming the ex-friend did not have permission to sell her property.

Madonna’s lawyers barred Lutz’s videographer from attending her deposition in the case in August.

On Thursday, Lutz’s lawyer asked the judge to punish the “Vogue” singer for the move.

“[Madonna’s] credibility was called into question a number of times” during the legal grilling, the lawyer, Judd Grossman, told Judge Gerald Lebovits in Manhattan Supreme Court.

For example, Grossman said, he asked Madonna during the deposition about a pair of panties she’d sent to a former lover over 20 years ago that were yanked from the auction block when she sued Lutz.

“Do you have any good-faith basis to allege that my client, Darlene Lutz, took these underwear from you?” as the singer has alleged, Grossman pressed.

“I do not,” Madonna admitted.

She also conceded that fan-club letters and snapshots from a Miami bachelorette party that are at issue in the suit had previously been published, according to Grossman. read more →
