A Seven spokesperson shut down claims Koletti was paid for his interview – despite a rumoured $50,000 for his first exclusive last October – explaining he has a unique relationship with the network’s executive producer.

“Anthony is a friend of the show [7News Spotlight] and does hair for the EP [executive producer] Mark Llewellyn’s wife,” the spokesperson told Emerald City last week.

“Mark has cooked Anthony numerous chicken dinners at his home when Anthony has finished doing his wife’s hair, so it is a natural fit he tells his story with Seven,” the spokesperson added.

However, Emerald City understands Koletti’s latest exclusive may have been shopped around to a number of media outlets by publicist Melissa Seymour in exchange for a fee. It’s no secret that Koletti is short of a penny or two. In December, he told the court he had only $1.95 in his bank account.

Since vacating his clifftop mansion Koletti is understood to have found accommodation at a two-bedroom property in nearby Bondi. Rent in the eastern suburbs isn’t cheap and neither is legal representation. A source close to Koletti has informed Emerald City that his lawyer Judy Swan is working on behalf of her client pro bono in exchange for his hair expertise. However, Swan has told The Sun-Herald that she denies that these are the terms of her retainer with her client, and says that such matters are privileged.

Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Gosling will soon call Australia home after it was announced he’s set to star in a classic reboot of The Fall Guy, to be shot in both Sydney and rural NSW later this year.

The Canadian actor is tipped to be joined by his actress wife Eva Mendes and the couple’s two children Esmeralda and Amanda. While neither the director nor start date for the movie has been announced, it is to receive $30 million in funding from the federal government’s location incentive scheme and $14.5 million from the state government’s Made in NSW fund.

Federal Arts Minister Paul Fletcher said the production was expected to inject $244 million into the Australian economy and employ more than 1000 cast and crew as well as more than 3000 extras.

Meanwhile, one half of the world’s most famous couple, Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson, will temporarily relocate to Australia after it was announced that he’s set to star in the new movie Wizards!, which is scheduled to be shot in Far North Queensland later this year.

While there’s no word if his megastar girlfriend Kim Kardashian will be joining him, there’s no doubt her ex-husband Kanye West will keep fans updated with his opinion in the ongoing slanging match on social media.
