Bass' boyfriend says couple won't hide from threats

New York - Lance Bass' boyfriend, Reichen Lehmkuhl, said he and the former 'N Sync star have been dealing with threats ignited by his new memoir about the trials of being gay while serving in the military.

"We have to be very protective," Lehmkuhl said Wednesday during an interview on the TV show "Inside Edition."

"I am not going to hide," said the former Air Force captain and winner of season four of CBS' "Amazing Race." "There are threats that come in from people who do not want me to be so public and expose what is going on in the military."

Lehmkuhl, 32, said that he and Bass, who revealed he is gay in July, forward the threats to private security personnel who send what they consider the more serious ones to the FBI. "Everything is being covered so we feel safe," he said.

Lehmkuhl's book, "Here's What We'll Say: Growing Up, Coming Out, and the U.S. Air Force Academy," recounts his time keeping his sexual orientation a secret from Air Force colleagues.

Supermodel Campbell jailed after another alleged spat

London - Someday a great therapist will figure out what childhood trauma caused Naomi Campbell's allegedly insatiable need to rage against female employees.

The 36-year-old supermodel spent 12 hours cooling off in the nick Wednesday in London after being arrested for allegedly assaulting her (female) drug counselor.

In a formal complaint, the unnamed therapist - who police say had "blood-red marks down both her cheeks" - told police Campbell scratched her face.

A Campbell employee said, "We believe there has been a misunderstanding."

Campbell, who's been accused eight times in the last eight years of assaulting employees - often by cell phone - is out on bail. Police say they are investigating the incident.

Sara Evans, husband agree to split cash, negotiate visits

Franklin, Tenn. - Country singer Sara Evans and husband Craig Schelske agreed in court Thursday to divide money Schelske removed from a joint account and to come up with a visitation schedule for their three children.

Evans dropped out of the reality TV show "Dancing with the Stars" and filed for a divorce from Schelske two weeks ago, alleging that he committed adultery, was verbally and emotionally abusive, drank excessively and frequently watched pornography in their home.

Schelske denied the allegations in court papers and said Evans filed for the divorce a day after he discovered her "intimate relationship" with another man and the two argued about it.

Both attended a hearing on their case Thursday but didn't speak in court.
