Scoop! Demi on Ashton: True love a ‘surprise’ 

Surprised that Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher have lasted for the long haul? So are they.

"If somebody would have said … ‘You’re going to meet a man 25 years old and he’s going to see being with you and having your three kids as a bonus,’ I would have said, ‘Keep dreaming,’" Demi admits in the February issue of Vanity Fair about falling for her husband of more than a year. "I think it caught us both by surprise, and particularly him. He was in this real rise of his career just as we met, which for a young man is prime opportunity for heavy-duty play."

Though the "Bobby" co-stars’ 2003 hookup seemed so out of the blue that some speculated it was a "Punk’d" prank, Demi, 44, now calls the "Dude, Where’s My Car?" star, 28, an "old soul" who she’d "most definitely" be happy to have more kids with.

After all, the mother of three teenage daughters with actor Bruce Willis explains, "Once you hit three, when you’re outnumbered, it’s really, like, what’s the difference between [that and] four or five?"

Demi famously appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair nude and pregnant in 1991. Though she’s covered up in a white bathrobe on the new issue’s cover, the gorgeous star hasn’t changed a bit otherwise. No wonder the age difference is a nonissue.

Britney: Getting Help?

The latest grist for the Britney Spears rumor mill: According to a new report, the troubled pop star may have discreetly entered a rehab program.

As Scoop! reported Wednesday, Britney’s camp has denied that alcohol was involved in the divor-cing diva’s mysterious collapse — er, power nap — shortly after midnight on New Year’s. In a line presumably cribbed from the script of "The Lindsay Lohan Story," the mother of two was said to be simply "exhausted" from her grueling schedule.

But now Life&Style says that on Monday, Britney checked herself into Arizona spa Sanctuary, and that the treatments she’s seeking involve more than just seaweed wraps.

"With these celebrities, ‘exhaustion’ sometimes means something else, and a little rest at a spa sometimes actually translates into something a little more serious," the magazine quotes a source as saying. (No kidding.)

Her family’s prompting may have convinced Brit to confront her problems. "It’s just been heartbreaking for her parents to watch Britney on this downward spiral," a source said. "It’s so sad."

Her fans couldn’t agree more. Let’s hope Britney really is getting whatever help she needs to reorder her life.

Kid Knock

Next time Kid Rock storms off to start a fight, he might want to stop and ask for directions.

The Detroit rap-rocker reportedly went ballistic on New Year’s Eve when pals told him recently separated wife Pamela Anderson was hooking up with her first husband, Tommy Lee. All three members of this tattooed love triangle happened to be in Las Vegas, so Kid headed for the Hard Rock Hotel, where Tommy was staying, to exact revenge.

Only trouble was, he ended up at the wrong room.

Kid "got all riled up. … He went over at 6 a.m. with two bodyguards, and began kicking down what he thought was Tommy’s door," a source told the New York Post. "Only it wasn’t — and Kid found himself staring at some poor, startled family. He signed an autograph for them as security arrived, then bolted over to the Paradise strip club."

Priceless! Wouldn’t you love to have been a fly on that hotel wall?

Ironically, Pam was seen that night snuggling up to "Oz" actor and biker Chuck Zito … whose hotel neighbors apparently escaped Kid’s wrath.
