'Wedding Singer' gets married

Malibu, Calif. -- Adam Sandler married model-actress Jackie Titone in an outdoor ceremony that was attended by celebrity friends and his pet bulldog dressed in a custom tuxedo.

"Sandler got married," the comic's Web site said. "Woopity Doo!"

Photographs of Sunday's nuptials showed "The Wedding Singer" star in a black tuxedo and white yarmulke, and Titone in a white gown with spaghetti straps, standing among hanging pale rose bouquets and chairs draped with pink satin.

It was the first marriage for Sandler, 36, and Titone, 28.

Titone has appeared in Sandler's movies, including as a waitress in "Big Daddy" and an angel in "Little Nicky."

'Punk'd' to pick on more celebs

New York -- Ashton Kutcher will be picking more people to punk.

MTV plans to air 20 more episodes of "Punk'd," a hipper version of "Candid Camera" in which Kutcher plays elaborate pranks on his celebrity friends. The new season is scheduled to begin this fall.

"All of Hollywood should be afraid," the 25-year-old actor said Monday. "If you are famous, we will find you and you will be 'Punk'd."'

His previous targets have included Justin Timberlake, Kelly Osbourne and Pink.

Kutcher co-stars in the Fox sitcom "That '70s Show" and is up against Prince William in an online vote for People magazine's top bachelor of the year. He has been photographed everywhere lately with Demi Moore, whom he's reportedly dating.

Lil' Kim's bling-bling goes bye-bye

New York -- Hip-hop performer and producer Lil' Kim, known for flaunting her jewelry, said someone stole $250,000 of it at John F. Kennedy International Airport.

Lil' Kim, 27, was on her way to Los Angeles for tonight's Black Entertainment Television awards, in which she's nominated as best female hip-hop artist.

The rapper, whose given name is Kimberly Jones, was catching a Friday morning flight on which she intended to carry a Louis Vuitton bag filled with as much as $500,000 in jewelry.

But an error at the check-in counter caused the bag to be mixed up with eight other pieces of Lil' Kim's luggage, her attorney, Mel Sachs, told the Daily News for a Monday story.

She realized the mistake and the flight was delayed while the bag was retrieved from the baggage hold.

Although some of the jewelry was still in it, other pieces were gone and the bag looked "tampered with," Sachs said.
