A-Rod Moves On; The Last Days of Casey Johnson

• In happier celebrity couple news—and after months of schmoopy public displays of affection—Katy Perry and Russell Brand are now engaged. Brand reportedly proposed while in vacation in India, a trip they decided to take after Perry expressed her love for "Indian culture while they were eating curry." [Us]
• An autopsy has been performed on Casey Johnson, the socialite and pharma heiress who was discovered dead on Monday. There weren't any signs of trauma, but more should be revealed when toxicology tests are completed. In the meantime, friends of Johnson report she went into a diabetic coma on several occasions over the past year, "spent the last months of her life in a suicidal drug haze," and had been living in squalor up until her death, since her family had cut her off. Speaking of the Johnson clan, they're planning to have a private funeral for Casey later this week. [TMZ, NYP, NYDN, People]
• In other Johnson news, she was dealing with a long list of legal problems when she died, including a lawsuit by Porsche (for failing to keep up with her car payments), and another suit by a nanny service (which claimed it was owed money). As for fame addict Tila Tequila, her alleged fiancée, she's been busy posting to Twitter, recounting the "haunting visions" she's been having of Johnson and how they "made such a lovely couple."

• Lindsay Lohan promised there'd be drama in 2010. And she's now delivering on her word. She says her long-time friend, Patrick "Pootie" Aufdenkamp, stole her sketches for her new 6126 clothing line and has since been banished from LiLo's inner circle, although given how LiLo's fashion career has been going as of late, he probably shouldn't have bothered.

Mariah Carey says makeup was responsible for creating the mustache she sports in Precious. But the makeup artist who worked on the movie is denying she did anything to make Mariah look like she had a mustache. So either this is an innocent mix-up or someone is lying. Or maybe this is all an elaborate effort to get you to go out and see Precious? [Us]
• Alexa Ray Joel seems to have really bounced back from her suicide attempt last month: She's now counseling people and doling out love advice on Facebook. ("Through helping others, I feel I am helping myself," she explains). One of Joel's particularly helpful tips for dealing with "heartbreak-related depression"? Taking a hot bath. [NYDN]

• A judge dismissed a battery charge against Gerard Butler for allegedly getting rough with a paparazzo back in 2008. Which is good for Butler, sure, although a few months of exercise in the prison gym yard wouldn't have been the worst thing in the world. [MSNBC]
• Redmond O'Neal, the drug-addled son of Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O'Neal, is in trouble again. He admitted to violating his probation by using drugs during a 24-hour pass from his rehab facility, and he's been sent to a "30-day jail rehab facility." [People]

Interestingly, she's been dating director Darren Aronofsky since 2001, they've been engaged since 2005, and they have a son together, although they still haven't managed to set a date for the big event. Awkward. [Telegraph, DM]
