Rob Kardashian has been charged with petty theft and battery. The reality TV star was charged with one count of each misdemeanor after allegedly attacking a photographer and stealing her equipment in an altercation in Los Angeles in March.
The criminal charges come shortly after the alleged victim, Andra Vaik, filed a lawsuit for alleged robbery and assault over the row, which was sparked by her taking a shirtless picture of him as he worked out at the gym. "While this case is still in the preliminary stage, it is clear from our investigation that Robert Kardashian's violent behavior and his use of force towards Ms. Vaik was completely unjustified," Andra's lawyer said last month.
Rob - who has been struggling with his weight ever since breaking up with singer Rita Ora last December - insists the paparazzo was trespassing on private property in order to get a shot of him. He says he was justified in snatching the memory card out of the camera, with eye-witnesses backing up his claim the photographer was lying in wait in her car in the garage at his West Hollywood gym. Andra filed a robbery report at the time, despite the 26-year-old star insisting he would pay her back.
Gabriel Aubry has been arrested for battery following a brawl with Olivier Martinez.
The model - who is the father of Halle Berry's four-year-old daughter Nahla - reportedly attacked the actress' French fiance Olivier on Thursday morning when he was dropping the tot back at Halle's house, but came off worse in the fight.
Gabriel was taken to hospital for his injuries and charged with battery, while Olivier did not need extensive medical attention for his own wounds but wants to press charges. A source told gossip website TMZ, "Gabriel went nuts," in front of Halle and other witnesses.
The fight comes after Halle, 46, recently had her bid to move Nahla to France with her and Olivier, denied by a judge. Gabriel, a Canadian model who lives and works in Los Angeles, had petitioned the court to stop Halle's plans as it would give him limited access to his daughter, while the Cloud Atlas actress argued the privacy laws are stronger in France and would keep Nahla safe from the paparazzi.
Paris Hilton's boyfriend River Viiperi has been arrested for misdemeanor battery.
The 31-year-old socialite and her 21-year-old beau were partying at Las Vegas' XS nightclub inside the Encore hotel in the early hours of Monday morning when the Spanish model punched an onlooker in the face. According to gossip website TMZ, a male party-goer filed a police report claiming his girlfriend was "making out" with Paris on the dancefloor when a jealous River punched him so hard that he needed medical attention.
The leggy blonde - who was formerly banned from all Steve Wynn owned hotels after being arrested for cocaine possession - is adamant she wasn't kissing another girl and that River simply stepped in to protect her from a couple who were harassing her.
"Paris is steadfast that she never made out with another girl at the nightclub in Las Vegas. Paris is very upset that River got arrested because it was his first trip to Las Vegas. According to Paris, another couple had been harassing them at XS, and the guy was getting to close to the hotel heiress, and River just shoved him away from his girlfriend. River didn't hit the dude, he was just protecting Paris and trying to give them a little space," an insider said.
Lindsay Lohan has settled a dispute with a Betty Ford worker according to reports.
The actress - who was accused of being violent with a member of staff at the rehabilitation clinic in 2010 - is said to have paid off the worker. At the time, Lohan said she was provoked by the alleged victim, Dawn Holland, and may have injured her in self-defense. The woman sued the 25-year-old star following the occurrence where she was apparently opposed to taking a breathalyzer test.
According to the prosecutor, the defendant appeared intoxicated at the time and Holland says she grabbed her right wrist, "twisting and pulling it for eight to 10 seconds." According to TMZ, the case was closed for an undisclosed amount.
Last week it emerged that Lohan has escaped any criminal charges for her alleged hit-and-run in March.
Lindsay Lohan claims she was at home last week when she allegedly assaulted a woman at a West Hollywood nightclub.
The actress was allegedly involved in an altercation with another female during a night out last Thursday, and although the woman filed a battery complaint on Saturday, Lindsay's representative claims she wasn't present.
"Lindsay was at home when this supposedly happened. There are so many holes in this story. At this point it's not a question of 'Did it happen?' because we know it didn't," Lindsay's representative, Steve Honig, told E! News.
Steve has previously questioned why the woman waited until Saturday to go to the sheriff department's at West Hollywood Station to file a complaint: "You have to wonder about someone who calls the media before the police."
The incident allegedly occurred at the Standard Hotel on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.
Lindsay Lohan has been accused of shoving a woman at a West Hollywood nightclub.
The actress - who, last month, successfully completed the terms of her probation, which was initially set as punishment for a 2007 driving under the influence (DUI) conviction - was allegedly involved in an altercation with another female during a night out last week and on Saturday, the woman filed a battery complaint against Lindsay.
"It's just an allegation. It's been received by our detectives," said Los Angeles County Sheriff's official Sergeant Chris Bowman. Bowman said a detective will check the validity of the complaint but Lindsay's publicist has questioned why the woman waited until Saturday to go to the sheriff department's at West Hollywood Station to file a complaint.
"You have to wonder about someone who calls the media before the police," said Steve Honig, Lindsay's publicist.
American Idol 9 runner up Adam Lambert is facing battery charges following an altercation with a photographer in Miami Beach on Thursday.
Photog Victor Eras says Glambert charged toward him and attacked him. Although the 38-year-old did file a report, police say Eras did not sustain any injuries. It’s not known what, if anything, precipitated the scuffle.
According to the Associated Press, the state attorney’s office will decide if any charges should be filed against the singer.
Adam addressed the story via Twitter: “Battery? Nope. I attempted to grab a camera, no punches were thrown and no one was on the ground…. It was literally harmless. If embarrassment is a crime- thats all I’m guilty of.”
It’s actually one of the most lucid Twitter posts we’ve read all week.
