Gossip: Christina Aguilera Broke; Hugh Grant And Ben Whishaw Play Lovers

High profile weddings and performing at corporate gigs seem to be the new way of making cash for Christina Aguilera and her “dwindling finances.”

Sources say that exiting “The Voice” has “left a big hole in her pocket,” Aguilera’s last two albums have also flopped. The singer has been “hustling personal appearances” to make money. The insider added, “Its kind of humiliating, but she’s looking for a fast fix.”

Hugh Grant And Ben Whishaw Play Lovers In New BBC Biopic

Hugh Grant is returning to British television and playing gay in the new three-part period piece, “A Very English Scandal.”

Grant is portraying British Liberal political party leader Jeremy Thorpe, who in 1979, was tried and acquitted of the murder of his former lover, Norman Scott (Ben Whishaw).

The limited series was written by Russell T. Davies (Queer as Folk, Cucumber) and is helmed by Stephen Frears, who also directed Florence Foster Jenkins and The Queen.

Grant has played gay roles before, most notably starring in the 1987 period piece Maurice, directed by James Ivory. This will be his first television acting role in 20 years.
