Scoop: Tiger in rehab for painkiller addiction? 

Tiger Woods reportedly is back in rehab — but this time it’s not for sex addiction. The disgraced golf great is getting treatment for his dependence on painkillers, according to the newly reputable National Enquirer.

“In [sex] therapy, Tiger blamed a lot of his cheating behavior on his drug addiction, saying that the drugs were responsible for impairing his judgment,” a source told the tabloid.

Wife Elin Nordegren allegedly told cops her hubby had prescriptions for the sleep aid Ambien and the painkiller Vicodin after his infamous post-Thanksgiving car crash.

Well, if Tiger’s not planning to return to golf anytime soon, we’re pretty sure Dr. Drew could get an entire show out of his personal demons.

Angie: Daddy’s Girl

Apparently, helping rebuild New Orleans wasn’t enough of a challenge for Brad Pitt. Now, he’s moved on to helping rebuild Angelina Jolie’s relationship with her father. The Oscar-winning actress, Brad and their kids met up with long-estranged dad Jon Voight in Venice last weekend, and Jon has Brad to thank.

According to an E! source, though Angie and her dad had a falling-out years ago, family guy Brad thought his kids’ grandpa “deserved a second chance and so he stepped in.”

“The visit actually went really well, and Angie’s thrilled he got on really well with all her kids,” the insider said. “She’s grown up a lot, and forgiving Jon is a huge step.”

Indeed, paparazzi photos of the family outing show Jon beaming as he meets all six grandchildren for the first time.

Darn it, Brad Pitt, you just get dreamier and dreamier!

Kourtney: Faking It?

Depending on who you believe, Scott Disick is either a model partner to Kourtney Kardashian and doting dad to newborn son Mason, or a cad who’s just sticking with the reality TV star and their child for fame and money.

“He’s always at home helping Kourtney,” new aunt Kim Kardashian said, adding, “Mason has contributed to Scott growing up a lot.”

Or is it all for show?

Thanks to the buzz their relationship generated on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” a friend of the socialite tells In Touch magazine, “Kourtney has never been more rich and famous in her life, but unfortunately, she’s never been more miserable. Staying with Scott is good for her bank account, but he treats her like dirt, and she’s growing unhappier by the day.”

At a recent event, “Kourtney was sitting with her girlfriends, but Scott barely paid any attention to her,” an onlooker told the tabloid. But when paparazzi appeared, “suddenly Scott and Kourtney were all lovey-dovey” — until they got their shots and moved on, at which point Scott took off.

Jeez. Can somebody get Brad Pitt to straighten this dude out?


MK: Joshing Around

Mary-Kate Olsen hasn’t had a particularly high profile of late. So it was news to us that she split with beau Nate Lowman “a while” ago, as her rep told Us magazine. But we’re not terribly surprised to hear that she’s evidently already moved on — allegedly to actor Josh Hartnett, who, much like MK, has been linked to half of Hollywood at one time or another.

At a bash after Britain’s BAFTA Awards last weekend, the petite twin and the underemployed hunk “were making out in a dark corridor of the party,” a source told People magazine.

The former “Full House” star had been dating Nate since 2008. Prior to that, she was rumored to have been dating the late Heath Ledger, who also was rumored to be close with supermodel Helena Christensen, who had been linked with Josh Hartnett. Move over, Kevin Bacon!
