Kristen Stewart not allowed on Robert Pattinson's 'lads' holiday'

Tabloid tales: R-Patz on lads-only holiday, Tulisa hits out against 'haters', Kentish Apeman 'spotted'

LAST UPDATED AT 12:20 ON Thu 22 Nov 2012

ROBERT PATTINSON'S friends have organised a 'lads' holiday' for the actor, and Kristen Stewart is not allowed anywhere near it. According to The Sun, Pattinson's friends have been worried about him since his much-publicised break-up and reconciliation with Stewart and the gruelling promotional duties he has had to do while promoting the final Twilight instalment. His concerned mates plan to indulge in some 'boy time' travelling around America's west coast, "playing cards and drinking beer". They have even booked a camper van so they are saved the pain of booking into hotels.

TULISA'S TWITTER RANT AGAINST 'HATERS'
Tulisa has hit out against her "haters" with another rant on Twitter. The X-Factor judge was criticised recently for her relationship with Newcastle United player Danny Simpson, after his ex-girlfriend accused Tulisa of being a "home wrecker". In a series of tweets, she wrote a "message 4 the haters n the negative media", saying "you can all bite me" and branded Simpson's exes "lying skanks". According to the Metro, X-Factor bosses have tried to cut down her appearances in the press as they are overshadowing the talent show, but Tulisa responded to this by tweeting: "as 4 shuttin up..NEVER GUNA HAPPEN!!!"

BIG FOOT OF TUNBRIDGE WELLS
An ape-like creature, similar to America's legendary Bigfoot, has been scaring walkers in Tunbridge Wells, Kent. According to the Daily Mail, a man walking in the woods was left "terrified" when he came across an "8ft tall beast with demonic red eyes and long arms". Over the past six months there have been a number of sightings of the "mysterious beast". However, reports of the creature go back decades: the 'Kentish Apeman' was first spotted on the town's Common 70 years ago, when it scared an elderly couple on a bench. However, some locals believe it is merely someone in a fancy dress costume.

FLAMING LIPS BOMB SCARE
Wayne Coyne, frontman of The Flaming Lips, recently caused a bomb scare which closed an American airport down for hours. The Sun reports that an X-ray machine detected a grenade in the musician's bag. The airport was then put on 'lockdown' as police and a bomb disposal unit were called in to investigate the object. Coyne said the grenade, which was painted gold and missing the explosive parts, had been a gift. "I would agree that it was stupid of me, but I don't feel wholly responsible if people missed their flights," he said. "It's not illegal for me to have that grenade with me." ·
