Child Protective Services Is Reportedly Investigating The Pinkett-Smith Family Over That Willow Smith Bedroom Photo

An Update

Remember that photo that came out of 13-year old Willow Smith laying in bed with that 20-year old man, Moises Arias — who was shirtless in the photo? Well, mama Jada Pinkett-Smith may have gone on the record to declare that there was “nothing sexual” about the photo but apparently Child Protective Services isn’t so convinced. A new report is out today that claims that the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services has formally opened an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the photo to determine if any child endangerment or abuse took place. HMMM. The report claims that Jada and husband Will Smith have been cooperative with investigators. Hmmm. More »

Justin Bieber Is Being Investigated For Attempted Robbery

Bad Boy Biebs strikes again

It’s been a few months since Justin Bieber last got in trouble with the law but his streak of good behavior came to an last night when police were called to investigate The Biebs for attempted robbery of a woman in Sherman Oaks, CA. JB and his homies made their way to the Sherman Oaks Castle Park to do some batting in the cages there. Naturally, Bieber got into some sort of “altercation” with some other people and he noticed a woman holding her phone. He assumed she was taking photos and demanded that she give him her phone. When she refused, Bieber reportedly went into her purse and took her phone. The police were called and now The Biebs is being investigated for a new crime. More »

Chris Brown Has Just Been Sentenced To 4 MORE MONTHS In Jail

JUSTICE

Last month we learned that felon Chris Brown would be sitting in jail at least until June in the wake of his probation violation stemming from the Rihanna assault case back in 2009 as well as the recent charges leveled against him for that bar fight he got into in Washington DC last October. Just a couple of hours ago, the ruling judge in his probation violation case ruled that he did violate the terms of his probation and sentenced him to just over 4 more months in jail! It’s possible that Brown may get released from jail sooner due to jail overcrowding but he may yet get more jail time if he is convicted of those new assault charges in DC. Either way, Chris is going to continue to be locked up behind bars for a few months at least. More »

Dolce & Gabbana Have Been Sentenced To 18 Months In Jail For Tax Evasion

Dang

Last year we learned that fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana were found guilty of tax evasion, a ruling that the duo immediately appealed to a higher court. Today we learn that Dolce and Gabbana have lost their appeal and they have been sentenced to 18 months in jail for not paying their taxes (which is 2 months shorter than the original sentence of 20 months in jail). As you can well imagine, the plan now is for the duo to file another appeal to Italy’s highest court … but if they lose there (or if the court doesn’t take their case), they are surely headed for the big house.

Justin Bieber Released From Custody, Allowed To Enter The US

Free Bieber

Yesterday afternoon, after he landed at LAX Airport here in LA from a flight from Japan, Justin Bieber was detained by customs officials when he attempted to enter the US. Bieber‘s detainment lasted about 4-5 hours before he was finally cleared and allowed to enter the US. Because of his recent arrest record and the numerous criminal charges that have been leveled against him, the customs officials decided that the young pop star had to be questioned extensively before he could be allowed into the country. Upon his release, JB was all smiles and he ran thru the throng of people at LAX waiting to catch a glimpse of him. More »

Justin Bieber Has Been Detained At LAX Customs, Is Currently Being Denied Entry Into The US

For now

Justin Bieber has been spending some time in Asia in recent days and just now landed on US soil at LAX Airport here in LA. According to reports, JB has been detained at customs and is thus far not being allowed entrance into the US. It’s likely that his legal troubles in Florida and Canada in recent months have raised red flags with the customs agents when he tried to enter the country but it is unknown if they will preclude him from being allowed to enter into the country. After they make him squirm for a bit, officials will probably let him in the US but … then again … maybe not. More »

Chris Brown Will Remain In Jail Until June

At Least

Back in March we learned that Chris Brown would be spending at least 30 days in jail after he violated the terms of his probation punishment which stems from his conviction for the brutal assault of Rihanna back in 2009. Since that time, Brown was flown to Washington DC to face new assault charges that stem from an incident that took place back in October of last year. Today we learn that his DC case, which was due to start this week, has been pushed back to June. As a result, Brown asked the court to release him from jail until the trial can get underway and he was shut down … which means that his ass will remain behind bars until June, at the very least.

Kevin Clash, The Voice Of Elmo, Has Been Completely Cleared Of All Sex Abuse Charges

The US Court of Appeals has thrown out all 3 lawsuits

Back in late 2012 we heard a lot of torrid sex abuse claims leveled against voice actor Kevin Clash, the man who provides the voice of Elmo on Sesame Street. A series of men accused Clash of sexually abusing them when they were minors which resulted in 3 formal lawsuits filed against him. Throughout it all, Clash denied any wrongdoing but ended up resigning as the voice of Elmo until the matter was settled. Last July, we learned that the cases against Clash were tossed out of court due to a statute of limitations technicality and today we learn that that decision to dismiss the cases has been upheld by the US Court of Appeals … which means that Kevin Clash has totally and finally been cleared of those sex abuse claims.
