Chris Brown Busted . . . Again!

Jailed for violating his parole

Chris Brown is back in jail again after he violated the terms of his on-going probation, stemming from his criminal conviction back in 2009 for his brutal assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna. Brown, who has had brushes with incarceration many times since 2009, was finally tossed back behind bars where he belongs for his continued insistence on refusing to satisfy the terms of his probation punishment. Brown was ordered to spend more time in rehab so that he can learn to get control of his violent anger issues but ended up getting kicked out of his rehab facility, which triggered his immediate arrest and incarceration. To this I say, it’s about damn time. More »

Michael Lohan & His Baby Son Show Up At Court For Mommy Kate Major’s DUI Arraignment

Lohan Family Values

It’s been about a year since we’ve checked in with Michael Lohan and his newborn son Landon who was borne of his tumultuous relationship with Kate Major. As you may know, Lohan and Major have been on-again/off-again over their years together which have involved domestic violence and jail sentences. Usually, it’s Lohan who ends up in jail after he and Major get into a spat but this time around, Kate was the one who was cooling her heels in jail. After Michael and Kate got into one of their usual physical alterations, Kate sped away from the scene and was arrested by police for drunk driving. Earlier today, Lohan bundled up the couple’s 1 year old son for a visit to the courthouse for mommy Kate‘s arraignment. Just another day in the life of the Lohan family. More »

Justin Bieber Responds To The Release Of His Embarrassing Deposition Video

"They can't break us."

Yesterday we saw excerpts from a 4+ hour videotaped deposition Justin Bieber sat and answered questions for stemming from a lawsuit that alleges that he participated in the assault and theft of a photographer last Summer. As you may recall, JB exhibited all kinds of arrogant behavior in the video clips we saw, which inspired much discussion about The Biebs from fans and critics alike. In response to the criticism he has been receiving in the wake of the release of said deposition footage, Justin took to his official Twitter profile to give his side of the story. You see, Beliebers, Justin says he has the right to defend himself and he is happy to do so in as snotty a way as possible. Click below to read what JB wants you to know. More »

Watch: Justin Bieber Gets ‘Arrogant’, ‘Lovesick’, ‘Contentious’ & ‘Disrespectful’ In A Videotaped Deposition

"I don't have to listen to anything you have to say"
"I object"

I’ve got an update on Justin Bieber’s continuing legal woes but this time, it has nothing to do with Bieber’s most recent arrests in Miami Beach, FL (on charges of drag racing, DUI and resisting arrest) and Toronto, Ontario (on charges of assault). Last Summer, Bieber was sued by a photographer who claims that Justin ordered his bodyguard to attack him with a gun and subsequently steal money from him. On March 6, The Biebs was deposed by the photogs attorney and video footage of the 4+ hour interview has been released. TMZ very graciously curated the video and shares clips of JB being “arrogant”, “lovesick”, “contentious” and “disrespectful” to the lawyer questioning him … and all of it was recorded on tape. This is a side of Justin Bieber that we, the public, has rarely seen. He’s not the polished, sweet popstar that millions of fans adore … he comes across as an entitled little jerk in each of the clips. Granted, he’s being sued for a lot of money (hence his anger) but you get the sense that this is the way Justin Bieber is when he thinks the public isn’t watching. The clip above features Justin Bieber being “arrogant”. Click below to watch 3 other clips from his deposition last week to get a fuller sense of what The Biebs is really like behind closed doors.

‘Frank Ocean’ Is Legally Changing His Name To Frank Ocean

He is also getting sued by Chipotle

Did you know that singer Frank Ocean‘s real name is Christopher Edwin Breaux? Well, it won’t be for much longer because Ocean has started the process to legally change his name to Frank Ocean. Many celebrities get famous by using a stage name and oftentimes keep their birth names personally without legally changing their names. Other celebs, like Miley Cyrus (who was born Destiny Hope) decide to legally take on the name that made them famous … which is what Frank has decided to do himself. That is the good Frank Ocean news. The bad Frank Ocean news is that he is being sued by Chipotle for failing to make good on a contract he signed with the company for one of their commercials. Lots of legal stuff going on in Frank‘s life right now, the good and the bad. More »

Watch: The Miami Beach PD Releases More Jailhouse Footage Of Justin Bieber Taking A Pee Test

If you wanted more video, urine luck
More American Justice

Yesterday we saw video released by the Miami Beach Police Department that showed popstar Justin Bieber peeing into a cup slightly off camera while he was in police custody after he was arrested for drag racing, DUI and resisting arrest back in January. Today we get to see more video of JB taking his pee test while in custody but this time, we get a bit more up close and more personal with him. This new video features Bieber on camera peeing into a cup so that his urine can be tested for drugs and/or alcohol. To protect his modesty, tho, a big black censor square has been placed over his penis area. Again, I have no idea why the Miami Beach PD is releasing this video footage but clearly, it has something to do with the way the judicial system works in Florida. Enjoy the vid?

Watch: The Miami Beach PD Wants You To Watch Justin Bieber Take A Pee Test

Yes, seriously
American Justice In Action

Earlier today we got to see a batch of photos that were taken by the Miami Beach Police Department of Justin Bieber‘s numerous tattoos back when he was in police custody after he got arrested for drag racing, DUI and resisting arrest back in January. Before those photos were released, the Miami Beach PD released video of Bieber taking a sobriety test and video of him being frisked. Right now, we get to check out newly released video footage that was taken of Justin Bieber urinating into a cup so that it could be tested for evidence of drugs and/or alcohol because … well, I don’t know why we are watching this video … but the Miami Beach PD wants us to see it so … here we are. I honestly do not understand why the cops are releasing so much footage from JB‘s arrest. I don’t really understand how this helps their case against him but … I understand that even more footage will be released soon (of him actually peeing into the cup, like, up close and blurred). I dunno. I watched this video, it’s just weird. I mean, right? This is so weird, right?

The Miami Beach PD Releases Intimate Photos They Took Of Justin Bieber’s Tattoos

Jailhouse Photoshoot

Back in January, popstar Justin Bieber got arrested in Miami Beach, FL on charges of drag racing, DUI and resisting arrest. A few weeks after his arrest, the Miami Beach Police Department released jailhouse video of Bieber being searched while in police custody. Last week, they released more jailhouse video footage of Bieber in custody, this time as he was given a walk the line sobriety test. Today we learn that the Miami Beach PD has released a batch of intimate photos that were taken of Bieber‘s tattoos. As I understand it, police photograph the tattoos of people they arrest in an attempt to record possible gang-related tattoos. In Bieber‘s case, all they got were photos that include a Bible verse, a tattoo of Justin‘s mother’s eye, an unfortunate tiger, a court jester, etc. Click thru the gallery presented here to get an up close and personal look at Justin Bieber‘s collection of tattoos, courtesy of the fine folks in the Miami Beach Police Department.

‘Real Housewives’ Stars Teresa & Joe Giudice Plead Guilty To Felony Fraud Charges

The Real Jailbirds of NJ

Last August we learned that Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Teresa and Joe Giudice attempted to make a plea bargain deal with the US government in an attempt to avoid prison punishment on their federal fraud charges and were DENIED. Today we learn that the couple have decided to give up their claims of innocence and have decided to plead guilty on several counts of bankruptcy fraud, conspiracy to commit mail fraud, wire fraud and failing to pay taxes owed. Both Teresa and Joe have plead guilty and each faces a jail sentence. It remains to be seen how long they will be incarcerated for, IF they are sent to prison but at long last the truth about the Giudice family has been revealed — they are admitted frauds. More »

Watch: Miami Beach PD Release New Jailhouse Footage Of Justin Bieber In Custody

Does this help or hurt his case?
Bizzle Walks the Line

Earlier this month we got to see surveillance video from inside the Miami Beach Police Department jail where Justin Bieber was taken last month after he was arrested on charges of drag racing, DUI and resisting arrest. As you may recall, that video showed JB getting searched by police just after his arrest while in custody. This week it was reported that more surveillance video would be released by police and right now, we get to see that footage. As I understand it, police believe that this video is their best evidence that Bieber was drunk when he was arrested … but it looks to me like he is walking that straight line pretty well. Check out the video embedded above to see the world’s most popular popstar trying to prove to police that he is not drunk. Do you think this video footage helps or hurts his case?
