Everyone is talking about the alleged assault charges pending against pop teen idol Justin Bieber.
According to online reports, Justin is accused of assaulting a 12-year-old boy at a laser tag centre in Canada over the weekend.
Bieber, who was in Canada visiting his dad, was allegedly cornered inside the laser tag center by an “aggressive” 12-year-old boy who taunted him and called him a “faggot.”
When the boy extended his hand to him, Bieber shoved the kid’s hand away and left the area. The boy had no visible injuries.
Bieber was subsequently thrown out of the Planet Lazer Entertainment Centre in Richmond, B.C. by its owner on Friday afternoon, according to one report in Canada. The “Baby” singer was said to have been with two of his bodyguards at the time of the incident.
The boy’s father, who told witnesses that he was a lawyer, later complained to police, who are now investigating the claims. A spokeswoman for The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said: “We are investigating an alleged assault at the venue.”
Ever since Bieber took the teen world by storm with his high pitched voice and bubble gum hits, he has been the subject of gay rumors.
He surrounds himself with effeminate looking men, and the 16-year-old loves to play with little kids.
His best friend is Will and Jada’s son Jaden Smith — who is not the most macho boy in Hollywood.
And Bieber has never been seen with a girl — unless you count those staged photos of him kissing his music video co-star in the back of his mom’s Honda.
According to TMZ, Bieber will be going public — probably within the next week — to lend his support to the anti-bullying campaign.
With all the depressing news about gay teens ending their lives after incidents of bullying, wouldn’t this be the opportune time for Bieber to finally come out of the closet?
Ciara is getting a lot of mileage from that brown Hermès bag that she borrowed from her BFF Kim Kardashian. Maybe if CiCi had some hit records she could afford to buy her own Hermès bags in different colors?
Rihanna posed with an excited fan outside of Madeo restaurant in Beverly Hills yesterday.
Meanwhile, her ex-boyfriend chris brown was thousands of miles away strolling in the Soho neighborhood of New York City yesterday.
According to producer Kanye West’s tweet over the weekend, his new album cover was banned in the USA.
The cover features a painting of what looks like a black man reclining on a blue chaise lounge while holding a bottle of beer. The man grins leeringly at the viewer while being straddled by a mythological winged creature (that looks suspiciously like a white woman).
“Banned in the USA!!! They don’t want me chilling on the couch with my phoenix!” Kanye wrote on his Twitter page.
But was the cover really banned before the album is even released? Or is this yet another lame attempt by a troubled man to garner more attention than he deserves?
Christina Aguilera’s divorce drama has taken a new twist. They say Christina dumped her hubby, Jordan Bratman, for Lindsay Lohan’s former live-in lover, DJ Samantha Ronson.
If the rumors are true, that would explain why Lohan can’t stay off the sauce or stop self-medicating with prescription meds.
A source very close to both Christina Aguilera and Samantha Ronson tells X17online exclusively that the singer and the DJ are taking their friendship to the next level.
Ever since Samantha went to Cabo with Xtina, “the two have been inseparable,” says our source. “I’ve seen them hanging out together. Christina Aguilera really lets down her guard around Sam. They’re very comfortable with each other.”
The pop star was even seen leaving Sam’s place late at night earlier this week AND she stopped by The Roxy on Sunday to see her new favorite DJ spin.
In June of this year, Xtina herself even told Company Magazine that she is “attracted to women.”
The singer also said the following to Out Magazine in May: “My husband knows that I get into girls. I think it’s fun to be open and play.”
Is it a coincidence that Aguilera suddenly split from Jordan Bratman so soon after her Cabo trip (where she got even closer to Samantha)?
Our source also reveals that the twosome’s relationship is nothing like the one Samantha had with Lindsay Lohan. “Their relationship is different because Christina doesn’t create the kind of drama that Lindsay did.” Ouch!
Pseudo-singer Ciara was potted shopping at Intermix in West Hollywood, CA yesterday, wearing a Helmut Lang Shearling Collar jacket that she copped for the retail price of $1,140.
Most likely, CiCi saw the same jacket on Halle Berry last week and she decided she had to have one for herself. Or maybe CiCi is switching careers from fading pop star to fashion icon, which seems to have worked for other non-talented socialites such as Kim Kardashian and Teyana Taylor.
Despite the fact that the question answers itself, I still have to ask it: Who wore it worse: Halle Berry or Ciara?
An emotionally distraught Tiny Harris leaned on her friend, R&B singer Monica, as they left the Russell B. Federal building. Tiny reportedly “burst into tears when a judge handed down T.I.’s sentence of 11 months.
Emotional pics of T.I., his wife Tiny and friend Monica leaving the Richard B. Russell Federal courthouse in downtown Atlanta today. A judge revoked T.I.’s probation and sentenced him to 11 more months in prison. T.I. is free while he appeals the decision.
Atlantic Records just dropped a new single by T.I. titled “Get Back Up” featuring chris brown. The video for this single was shot two days ago in Atlanta. The guys were filmed against a green screen backdrop. So that means the finished music video will be bangin’.
This song is fiya! I actually like chris brown’s part, and normally I hate anything he sings.
In his typical articulate flow, T.I. raps about stumbling along the way to redemption.. again:
Hey, what it is world
Yeah, it’s me again
Back before you, at your mercy
On bended knee again
No running from the truth
As much as we pretend
That it ain’t what it is
Then it hits CNN
T.I. also lashes out at the “clown who twitpic’d my wedding.” Didn’t I tell you he was heated about that!
A federal judge handed down a sentence of 11 months in federal prison to rapper T.I. today. T.I. will remain out on bond while he appeals the sentence.
According to TMZ.com, T.I. told the judge he needed help for drug addiction and begged not to be sent back to prison. We’re told one of the officers from Wednesday’s jumper incident testified on T.I.’s behalf.
Declaring that T.I. “has had about the limit of second chances,” an angry federal judge on Friday sentenced the rapper and movie actor to 11 more months in prison for violating his probation.
T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., asked the court for leniency.
“I screwed up,” said the rapper, wearing a three-piece gray suit. “I screwed up bigtime, and I’m sorry. I’m truly and sincerely sorry. I don’t want and I don’t need to use drugs anymore. I want them out of my life.”
“I think Mr. Harris had had about the limit of second chances,” Pannell said. “The worst thing is this case was an experiment. You certainly dumped a lot of smut on the whole experiment.”
As if convicted woman beater chris brown didn’t have enough problems. Today we learn that new photos of pop star Rihanna’s battered, bloodied face have surfaced, and are on sale to the highest bidder.
RadarOnline.com, which broke the story, has seen four of the new photos, but RO declined to purchase any of the images. We can only imagine how gruesome the photos are sine these are more clear and graphic than the photo that was purchased by TMZ.com from 2 former LAPD police officers.
The photos were taken in a Los Angeles emergency room where Rihanna was being treated after she was assaulted the night of the Grammy awards in February 2009.
The most graphic photo is a close-up; her left eye bloodied and bruised, with four lesions on her face and multiple cuts on her bottom lip.
Rihanna, wearing a grey tank top with her short hair pushed off her face, is also photographed in a profile position, showing the right side of her face. A ruler is being held up which shows the reddish swelling to span two inches – from the bottom of her eye almost all the way down to her mouth.
In another image, Rihanna is shown pulling her busted lips apart to show numerous lacerations on the inside of her mouth.
brown, who was in Atlanta over the past two days shooting a music video with T.I., declined to comment for this story.
