Lindsay Lohan was escorted from a Los Angeles courtroom on Wednesday (October 19) in handcuffs. A judge revoked Lohan's probation because she failed to perform community service, and admonished the troubled actress for failing to treat her sentence seriously. At a progress hearing for Lohan, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner called her previous ruling of probation on a theft charge a "gift" and told Lohan, "there's something called looking a gift horse in the mouth." Lohan posted bail and did not spend time behind bars. She was ordered to appear at a November 2 hearing at which court officials and attorneys will present evidence as to whether Lohan did, in fact, violate her probation. If so, she could be returned to jail. The involuntary manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray resumed in Los Angeles after a five-day break with what is expected to be the last witness for the prosecution. Dr. Steven Shafer, regarded as one of the leading researchers in the use of propofol, said that the drug, which is normally used to sedate patients before surgery and not as a sleep aid as Jackson used it, had gotten a bad name since it was ruled the main cause of Jackson's death. But he testified it was an "outstanding drug" when administered in the right setting. French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Italian supermodel-turned-singer Carla Bruni are now the parents of a baby girl. Both Bruni and Sarkozy have repeatedly refused to comment about the pregnancy and the Italian-born former supermodel has kept a particularly low profile since her pregnancy became known. The child is the first baby to be born in modern history to a French presidential couple in office. It is Sarkozy's fourth child and Bruni's second. Irish boyband Westlife is calling it quits after 14 years. The band notched 20 top five hits and are planning a farewell arena tour and album. The final tour will showcase the 14 number one hits, such as "Flying Without Wings" they have clocked up since they launched as a five-piece group in 1998. Lindsay Claiborn, Reuters.
