The Dredge: Bruce Springsteen has an Irish passport, Martin Sheen has an Irish great-grandchild

The best of the day’s celebrity dirt.

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt – from the top to the very bottom.

#STREETS OF PHILA… LIMERICK The Boss is settling in well in Ireland for his series of gigs here (he played Limerick on Tuesday, Cork tonight, Belfast this weekend, and Kilkenny next week).

So much so that he’s even earned his own Irish passport… kind of.

A superfan called Jimmy from Kilrush in Clare made Bruce Springsteen an oversized version, and managed to pass it to him at Wednesday night’s concert.

According to Bruce The Boss downed a pint before exclaiming:

I drank that beer and I think I earned my Irish passport.

He then took the gift and placed it in front of the drums for the remainder of the show.

The New York Post reported that the woman gave birth to the former Oasis frontman’s child late last year, after having an affair.

She’s suing Gallagher for $3m in the Manhattan Family Court, claiming that the 7-month-old baby is his.
