Kanye West has been sentenced to two years probation.
The "Blood on the Leaves" rapper was in court today where he pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges of battery against a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport last year. In a special plea deal, the City Attorney did not make Kanye plead guilty and will be allowed to maintain is innocence legally.
As well as his probation, the rapper will have to undertake 250 hours of community service and undergo anger management counseling.
Kanye was originally charged with counts of battery and grand theft after an altercation with photographer Daniel Ramos at the airport in July last year. The photographer claimed he was punched and Kanye wrestled his camera to the ground during what he claimed was an unprovoked altercation. Kanye was not in court, but Daniel testified saying he felt the rapper should go to jail, claiming his emotional injuries are still prominent and he thinks the star had used the incident to promote his album Yeezus.
Chris Pine has pleaded guilty to drink driving.
The Star Trek actor was fined $93 and had his driver's license suspended for six months during a court hearing at the Ashburton district court in New Zealand today. Chris' lawyer, Marilyn Gilchrist, had applied for the star to be discharged without conviction after claiming he had already suffered emotionally and professionally because of the worldwide negative coverage of his crime. The judge, Joanna Maze, said she accepted Chris was "entirely remorseful" of his actions as he had pleaded guilty to the charge at the earliest opportunity and had complied with the police.
The 33-year-old star was stopped by officers in a "routine operation" in Methven, Canterbury, New Zealand, on March 1 and was arrested after tests revealed his blood-alcohol level was 0.11 per cent, which is over New Zealand's legal limit of 0.08 per cent.
Chris was in the country filming Z for Zachariah and had been out celebrating the end of the shoot, the night before he was arrested.
L'Wren Scott has been found dead in her apartment.
The 47-year-old celebrated fashion designer - who was dating Rolling Stones star Mick Jagger - was found hanging from a scarf on a doorknob in her home in Manhattan, New York, earlier today, police told the New York Daily News newspaper.
The body is said to have been found by her assistant at her 200 11th Avenue address at around 10 o'clock this morning and although it's been claimed that police do not suspect foul play, the Medical Examiner's Office will determine the cause of death.
L'Wren has previously spoken out about her hate for being referred to simply as Mick Jagger's girlfriend as she wanted to be recognized for her own talents, although she often used the rocker as her muse. "I'm a fashion designer. I don't want to be defined as someone's girlfriend. You always wonder if people will pay attention to the hard work that goes into what you do. And when you're taking something on your own, it's your company, your investment - your life," she previously said. The former model designed all of her 70-year-old boyfriend's outfits for the Rolling Stones' 50th anniversary tour.
Ciara is expecting a baby boy.
The "Goodies" singer is due to give birth to her first child with her fiance Future next month and the 30-year-old rapper may have let slip the sex of the unborn tot.
During an interview with Tim Westwood TV, he said, "The baby's listening to music already now. [Ciara] sent me a video while I was over here with the headphones on her stomach. She's like, 'The baby just listened to 'Turn on the Lights,' the version with me and you.' I said, 'You gotta play the 'Anytime' for him, the new one you did. Let him hear that, see how he kicks.' She played it and he started kicking crazy."
Meanwhile, the 28-year-old star has remained tight-lipped about whether she is carrying and boy or a girl over the past four months, but recently admitted the gender didn't initially match her "preference" when she found out. "I did have a preference before I found out what it was. I had a preference at first and when I was told what it was, I felt it's going to be what it's supposed to be," she said previously.
Lena Dunham doesn't want to act any more.
The Girls star, who also created the TV show, admits she doesn't love performing as much as she does standing behind the camera and watching other people take to the set. "I don't know if I'm going to want to act any more. I'm always relieved on the days I don't have to. I'd rather give parts to other women than be the woman having the parts," she said.
Meanwhile, the 27-year-old actress - who plays unlucky in love aspiring writer Hannah Horvath in the HBO comedy - admits her relationship with boyfriend Jack Antonoff, whom she started dating shortly after Girls became popular, works really well because he accepted her "baggage." She explained in the April edition of Glamour, "'The dialogue around the show already existed, so it was sort of clear to him what the baggage of dating me was going to be. And I remember talking with him on our first date and him being like, 'God, all the articles about your nudity on the show are such b******t.' It's funny, because in some ways that's the conversation we still have when I'm upset [about the stuff I read]."
Kim Kardashian will get $1 million for every year she stays married to Kanye West.
The couple have signed a prenuptial agreement ahead of their forthcoming wedding this spring, in which Kanye has been very generous toward his future spouse.
"The entire process for the prenup for Kim and Kanye has been extremely easy, and relatively drama free. Kanye didn't even think the couple needed a prenup, and was ready to give Kim carte blanche to all of his financial assets. Yes, he loves Kim that much," a source said.
The source adds drawing up the document was much easier than the last time Kim, 33, married, to basketball player Kris Humphries, in 2011, a union which lasted just 72 days. "There is a huge difference from Kim's prenup with Kris Humphries ... the preparation of their agreement went on for several months. It was long and tedious," the source added.
Paula Patton is "open" to giving Robin Thicke another chance.
The Baggage Claim actress split from the "Blurred Lines" singer last month, and though she was reported to have insisted to him she wanted a divorce, insiders say she is now reconsidering her stance.
Sources told gossip website TMZ that the estranged couple - who have been married for eight years and have a three-year-old son, Julian, together - have been talking "constantly" and are now discussing what Robin needs to do to convince Paula they can make their marriage work. The 38-year-old actress is said to be particularly impressed with how much of a good dad Robin, 36, has continued to be since they separated, keeping in touch while on the road and seeing their little boy whenever he can.
According to the source, Paula hasn't yet hired a divorce lawyer and has no plans to do so. However, though their conversations have been "smooth and cordial," one thing the Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol star is unhappy with is Robin's public declarations of love for her.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt don't want their children to be actors.
The couple raise six kids together - Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, seven, and twins Vivienne and Knox, five - and despite letting Vivienne have a cameo in her new film Maleficent, Angelina is not encouraging them to become screen stars.
"We think it's fun for our kids to have cameos and join us on set, but not to be actors. That's not the goal for Brad and me at all. I think we would both prefer that they didn't become actors. But she was four at the time and other three and four year old [actors] really wouldn't come near me. Big kids thought I was cool - but little kids didn't really like me. So, in order to have a child that wants to play with [Maleficent]... it had to be a child that really liked me and wasn't afraid of my horns and my eyes and claws, so it had to be Viv," she said.
Ke$ha has left rehab and is feeling "healthy."
The "Timber" hitmaker has finished her treatment for an eating disorder at the Timberline Knolls clinic near Chicago and claims she's "happy" to be working on new music.
She took to Twitter last night to update her fans on her progress, writing, "Happy to be back! Feeling healthy & working on tons of new music, I can't thank my fans enough for all the love & support u have given me [sic]." She later added, "Life is beautiful. I'm so blessed to have u all [sic]."
The 27-year-old singer recently postponed her upcoming Warrior world tour, which would see her perform in Hammond, Indiana, on March 15 and Green Bay, Wisconsin, on April 13, following doctor's orders to overcome her issues before focusing on her career again. "I was so looking forward to performing at these dates but I need to follow my doctor's advice and get my health back on track ... I couldn't have done this without you all. I look forward to coming back stronger than ever on the next tour," she previously said.
Harry Styles reportedly had a secret romance with Alison Mosshart.
The One Direction hunk, 20, who has split from model Kendall Jenner, was seen getting cozy with The Kills frontwoman, 35, at The Box nightclub in London's Soho during London Fashion Week. "They were very touchy-feely in a booth and both pretty drunk. But they were having a great time together, laughing and joking with a lot of PDA. It was Harry who made the move as he was looking after her," an eyewitness told The Sun. "At one point he was stroking her hair as she lay her head on the table. Harry's knack with women of any age is pretty amazing," the source added.
