A warrant has been issued for Wiz Khalifa's arrest.
The 26-year-old rapper failed to appear for a scheduled court appearance in El Paso yesterday for a hearing over a misdemeanor charge of possession of marijuana.
When Judge Ricardo Herrera learned neither the "We Dem Boyz" star - whose real name is Cameron Thomaz - nor his lawyer had arrived for the hearing, he issued an arrest warrant, TMZ reports. The charges stem from an arrest in May when the rapper - who has 17-month-old son Sebastian with wife Amber Rose - was detained at an airport in El Paso, Texas, after officers from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) allegedly found a "green leafy substance" in his luggage before he boarded a flight to Dallas.
The rapper shared several images online from behind bars, including a "jail selfie" in which he appeared to not be wearing any trousers.
A sexual abuse lawsuit against Bryan Singer has been dropped.
The X-Men: Days of Future Past director was accused by an anonymous British actor - identified only as John Doe No. 117 - of abusing him as a teenager but while Gary Goddard, a Broadway producer, remains a defendant, Bryan is no longer involved.
According to the New York Daily News, a voluntary dismissal was filed on Friday in Los Angeles. Singer's lawyer Marty Singer previously insisted there is no legal basis for the lawsuit and said it was filed improperly. The filmmaker was also seeking $300,000 from the plaintiff to cover the costs of his legal fees, which are said to be "exorbitant."
The unidentified British actor's lawyer Jeffrey Herman filed a lawsuit in May against both Singer, 48, and entertainment industry executive Gary, who filed a similar motion to dismiss in June.
A homeless man has been arrested for stalking Rihanna.
Kevin McGlynn, 53, was taken into custody on Thursday after leaving threatening notes at the star's rented New York home. The New York Post's Page Six reports he was charged with stalking, menacing and harassment and held without bail after writing a string of insulting notes and delivering them twice on July 8 and once on July 1.
Rihanna was forced to put her own sprawling estate in Pacific Palisades, California, on the market in May after owning it for just over a year. The "Stay" hitmaker was put off living at the house, as stalkers kept showing up unannounced.
The singer secured a three-year restraining order against Steveland Barrow in March 2013, after he broke into the property next door, which he wrongly believed to be her home. A judge also ordered Robert Melanson to stay at least 100 yards away from the "Umbrella" singer's house and, or, place of business, after the 26-year-old male trespasser was caught creeping around on her roof last June. In court documents, Rihanna, who was not at home at the time of either incident, wrote she feared for her safety because Robert was unstable and had a criminal history.
Miley Cyrus has secured a permanent restraining order against an obsessed fan.
Devon Meek - who was arrested near the "Wrecking Ball" hitmaker's Los Angeles home on May 16 and previously claimed he would rather die than spend another day without her - must stay 100 yards away from her for the next three years. The new court order also prevents him from going near any of the venues where the blonde beauty is performing, according to gossip website TMZ.com.
Miley's lawyers obtained the permanent protection order in court today after they filed an emergency restraining order last month. Meek, 24, previously claimed that Miley was communicating with him through the radio and believed she told him that she "adores" him.
A law enforcement source said Meek, who also said he hears "screaming voices" in his head, is still undergoing treatment after initially being hospitalized under a 5150 involuntary psychiatric hold. "Mr. Meek stated that when he is released from the hospital, he will not stop seeking Ms. Cyrus and that he will continue to go to Ms. Cyrus' residence until Ms. Cyrus accepts him or he dies," the insider also previously said.
Usher believes that Justin Bieber needs to "manage" his own life now that he's an adult.
The rapper has mentored the pop heartthrob since his career took off at the age of just 13, seven years ago, but he hasn't tried to stage an intervention following Justin's recent run-ins with the law and bad publicity as he insists the youngster needs to learn from his own mistakes.
"I gave every bit of advice and always told him it was up to him if he really wanted this. Now that he has it, as an adult, it's his to manage. Do I turn my head in shame based off of what I see, what I know? Nah, I don't because it's all part of life's process. Am I in it with him? Yeah," Usher said in Nylon.
Usher, 35, was mentored by Diddy from the age of 15, so he understands why it's important to have someone else in the industry looking out for you. "Artistic development made me who I am. Somebody took the time to help me find what it is that works for me as an entertainer and who I am as a music maker," he explained.
Chris Brown has been released from jail.
The 24-year-old singer left prison at midnight last night after serving 108 days of a 131-day sentence for probation violation, TMZ reports.
Chris was originally sentenced to 365 days in custody on May 9 after admitting violating his probation by getting into a fight in Washington D.C. last year, but Judge James R. Brandlin gave him credit for the 234 days he has already spent in rehab and jail.
The judge also ordered Chris, who has recently been diagnosed with Bipolar disorder, to attend therapy sessions twice a week and undergo random drug testing three times a week.
The "Yeah 3x" hitmaker had been in custody since being kicked out of a court-ordered rehab facility in mid-March for breaking three internal rules.
Ray J was arrested in Beverly Hills last night.
The R&B star, who is Brandy Norwood's younger brother, reportedly got into a violent confrontation and spat in a police officer's face at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. A law enforcement source told gossip website TMZ.com that police were initially called to the scene because the 33-year-old star made contact with an unidentified woman's butt in the bar.
Although it was determined to be "incidental" and not sexual battery, Ray J was asked to leave the hotel, but he allegedly became belligerent and refused to leave so security made a citizen's arrest. The situation is said to have escalated further when law enforcement arrived at the scene and the "I Hit It First" hitmaker kicked out the back window of the police car and spat in an arresting officer's face as he was being handcuffed.
He was booked for trespassing, resisting arrest, vandalism and battery on a police officer, and later released.
Brad Pitt has secured a restraining order against Vitalii Sediuk.
The 50-year-old star, who was allegedly hit in the face by the Ukrainian prankster while attending the Hollywood premiere of his fiancee Angelina Jolie's new movie, Maleficent, Wednesday night, obtained a temporary emergency protection order today on Thursday, forcing Sediuk to stay at least 500 feet away from him for the next five days.
The 25-year-old reporter, who was placed on probation for three years after trying to interrupt Adele's speech at the Grammy Awards in 2013, could also face criminal prosecution for attacking the actor and breaking his designer sunglasses.
A law enforcement source told gossip website TMZ.com that a file has been sent to the Los Angeles City Attorney.
Madonna has failed to report for jury duty.
The 55-year-old star had been summoned to the Manhattan Supreme Court at 111 Centre Street near City Hall in New York to perform her civic duty along with a jury of her peers but failed to attend, according to the New York Post newspaper.
The "Hung Up" singer allegedly did not inform the court she would not be attending, despite New York jurors being granted one automatic postponement upon application, and therefore at 9 am court security were expecting her to arrive.
Madonna - who reportedly earns $1 million for each of her stage appearances and whose real name is Madonna Louise Ciccone - last participated in jury service in 2008 at a court in Beverly Hills, California, but the case was dismissed just fours later.
Wiz Khalifa was arrested for marijuana possession yesterday morning.
The 26-year-old rapper was detained at an airport in El Paso, Texas, after officers from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) allegedly found a "green leafy substance" in his luggage before he boarded a flight to Dallas.
A law enforcement source told gossip website TMZ.com that the "Black And Yellow" hitmaker, who has 14-month-old son Sebastian with wife Amber Rose, was taken into custody and turned over to local police. The "We Dem Boyz" rapper shared several images online from behind bars, including a "jail selfie" in which he appeared to not be wearing any trousers.
Despite creating the hashtag "FreeTrapWiz," on Twitter and poking fun at the incident, he later hinted that he was becoming increasingly frustrated: "I wanna drop 28 Grams but they got me locced up. Soon as I get out, the tapes comin out. Fucc that... They're tryna figure out how many grams I had. How ironic [sic]."
