Cameron Diaz allegedly told magazine staffer ‘I hope you get cancer’ … as Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner recalls the incident in his new memoir
Cameron Diaz seems to be featured in a new memoir by Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner, where he recalls an unpleasant interaction with the star.
The American magazine tycoon, 76, shared an incident that took place in the mid-2000s – while he owned Us Weekly – with an actress who was pictured in a paparazzi photo kissing Justin Timberlake on a surfboard, appearing to point to Diaz, 50.
Though he did not name the movie star, Wenner described her as ‘unpleasant to deal with’ and alleged she told one of the magazine’s researchers, ‘I hope you get cancer,’ as per Page Six.

Wenner revealed that one of the magazine’s first scoops was a paparazzi photo of the unnamed actress kissing Timberlake on a surfboard.
Diaz was famously pictured sharing a tender kiss with the singer on a surfboard as they vacationed in Hawaii in 2006 – which appears to match the timeline described in the memoir.
Wenner’s memoir, titled Like A Rolling Stone, is set to hit the bookshelves on September 13.

The Charlie’s Angels star and the NSYNC alum, 41, met in 2003 at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards where they hit it off.
However the two eventually broke things off in early 2007.
The Cry Me A River hitmaker met his now wife Jessica Biel, 40, while still dating Diaz, as described in his 2018 memoir ‘Hindsight: & All the Things I Can’t See in Front of Me.’

He spoke of meeting up with Biel at the Golden Globes: ‘Then the Golden Globes came up, and that’s when we planned on seeing each other.’
‘We were both still seeing other people, keeping ourselves safe from getting hurt, from really putting ourselves out there. It took a bit for both of us to admit to ourselves that we were really, really into each other. ‘
Timberlake and Biel got married in 2012. The couple share sons Silas, 7, and Phineas, 2, together.
Meanwhile, Diaz went on to marry Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden in 2015. The two became parents to daughter Raddix, now two, via surrogate in December 2019.
