Celebrities “double dip” all the time to make easy cash under the table. It’s a shady practice that is frowned upon by the music industry. Double dipping may have gotten R&B singer Ciara into hot water with a Los Angeles nightclub promoter.

Troubled singer Chris Brown’s attorney Mark Geragos responded angrily to allegations made by the Los Angeles County district attorney and prosecutors that Brown faked his community service paperwork.
The District Attorney’s office is seeking to revoke singer Chris Brown’s probation based on what they called “fraudulent” paperwork.

George Zimmerman and his attorneys are being sued by the firm that provided security for him this past Summer.
In court documents, the security firm claims Zimmerman owes them $27,000 for services provided, which might explain why Zimmerman was selling his autograph earlier this month.
Zimmerman faces a 2nd degree murder charge in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin earlier this year.
