Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Legal Issues

Ray JRay 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.

Justin Bieber Sued

Justin BIeberJustin Bieber is being sued by a photographer who says his bodyguard locked him in a restaurant.

Manuel Munoz claims in a new lawsuit that he was taking pictures of the "Believe" hitmaker as he left the SET Nightclub in Miami Beach in January - hours before the singer was stopped by police for drag racing and alleged driving under the influence (DUI) - and was chased by the 20-year-old star's minder Dwayne Patterson into a nearby Subway eatery.

According to the photographer, the bodyguard locked the restaurant door and cornered him in the bathroom, demanding he delete the photos, before trying to "forcibly" remove the memory card and kicking and punching him, damaging his camera in the process.

However, a police report obtained by TMZ shows the photographer made no mention of being punched and kicked, but that he was tripped, causing a "small scratch in his left knee."

The 27-year-old singer "flipped out" at the rapper, 44, in an elevator at the Met Gala after-party in New York last week because she was offended by a comment he made. "Solange flipped out over something Jay had said, that she took the wrong way. She took it too hard or too far. Not sure what it was, but she greatly overreacted," a source said.

Solange was caught on surveillance kicking and clawing her brother-in-law as they left the bash held in the Boom Boom Room at The Standard Hotel in New York City, last Monday. Jay didn't appear to retaliate as the brunette beauty screamed in his face, but he did attempt to hold her hands down as their bodyguard struggled to hold her back.

Beyonce appeared to stay calm and collected throughout the scuffle and watched on helplessly as her sister violently attacked her husband.

Chris BrownChris Brown is extending his stay in rehab.

The "Fine China" singer recently completed his court-ordered 90 days in a treatment facility in a bid to overcome his anger management issues but has decided to stay there for further treatment.

"It was his choice. He will come out soon," a source close to the 24-year-old singer told E! News.

The star voluntarily checked himself into rehab in Malibu, California in October after being accused of assaulting Parker Adams, who is suing the singer and his bodyguard for $3 million, in Washington D.C., but he was kicked out after throwing a rock through his mother Joyce's car window. The R&B singer was then ordered to seek anger management at a different facility instead of being sentenced to jail when his probation, stemming from his violent assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, was formally revoked as a result of the alleged assault.

Justin BieberJustin Bieber will be deposed and questioned about an attack on a photographer.

The "Baby" hitmaker, who is being sued for allegedly instructing his bodyguard to attack Jeffrey Binion and take his camera after he took photographers of the 19-year-old star outside a recording studio in Miami last June, had tried to block the paparazzo's lawyers from interviewing him about the incident but a judge dismissed his appeal, according to documents filed in the city's Third District Court of Appeal last Tuesday.

"Miami Judge Sarah Zabel initially denied Bieber's requests to stop Binion's lawyers from deposing him and asking questions about other incidents involving him and his varied bodyguards' aggressive behavior. Although Bieber's lawyers appealed the judge's rulings, the appeal was denied. Bieber can no longer hide. Binion's lawyers are waiting for a deposition date to be set in Miami," a source said.

The judge also denied the Canadian star's request to stop the public's right to view his scheduled videotaped deposition.
