Owen Pushed to Edge by Close Pal?

8/28/2007 9:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Owen Wilson may have lost it over the weekend after a "vicious quarrel" with a close friend -- though there's no word on who that friend might be.

The otherwise affable Owen, reports the New York Post, went off the deep end Sunday just after noon, and just after a "vicious quarrel with an unidentified friend." He was discovered at home by a "stunned family member," says the Post. Neither authorities nor reps would confirm reports that Wilson had attempted suicide.

As TMZ showed you yesterday, Wilson was visited by brother Andrew and actor pal Samuel L. Jackson.

Brit, LiLo, Paris Diss Teen "Award"


The unholy trinity of celebdom -- Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, and Paris Hilton -- was all set to get an award at the "Teen Choice Awards" on FOX Sunday night, but, according to Page Six, none of the girls dared to show up.

"There was originally going to be a 'Newsmakers of the Year' award" nominating the celebuwrecks for their jail-riding, head-shaving, rehab-hopping ways, says an insider. "[But] all the publicists went crazy on FOX, and they just scrapped the category." Their competition for the Newsmaker of the Year? Larry Birkhead and Sanjaya Malakar. Britney, of course, made her not-so-triumphant return to the world at last year's "Teen Awards," where she introduced her then-husband Kevin Federline's also not-so-triumphant rap debut.

Actor pair Jennifer Esposito and Bradley Cooper have agreed to end their four-month marriage, reports People, with the divorce effective in November. ... The Los Angeles Times reports that the totem of the WASP diet, Wonder Bread, will be leaving Southern California store shelves after Wonder's parent company has decided to stop making it.

Who in their right mind would want to win Newsmakers of the Year? Britany, Paris, Lindsey, Larry or Sanjaya. Now that's a group normal people don't want to be in. It's an insult to be considered for that award. Celebuwrecks is right.

The problems with celebs is their world is upside down. Jennifer Esposito ended her long four-month marriage because they drifted apart or something like that. Paris, Britney and Lindsay needed to stay away, because life is already hard enough for kids, the last thing they needed see is Loser's Inc. Owen, you breakup a marriage bad things happen to ya!!!

Do you know Owen personally? No?! Then you shouldn't comment on his attempting suicide. It is not a joke and something that is very serious. How do you know he was the cause of the marriage breakup? To joke about such a serious matter is just insensetive and unfortunately reflective of our current times. I think it is irresponsible of all the media to report on it as well. Why not give the man some peace so he can get the help he so obviously needs? I think the media of nowadays does not feel content unless it plays a significant role in the downfall of a celebrity, including death. Its pretty sick.

It's bad enough that Madonna sees herself as the Every Woman for Every man. Now she's a self appointed prophet from god leading 'thousands' to the Holy Land...Yuk..don't make me PUKE!!!

watched bottlerocket and tennenbaums yesterday. The guy is a creative genius. I am just glad to hear that his family swooped right in to help him. Now he has to stay on
those meds and he will be fine.

It bothered me this morning to hear local Memphis tv stations reporting about this and every time saying "stemming from his May break up with Kate Hudson" or "who recently broke up with actess Kate Hudson" . Who knows what is going on in his life or why he did this.
