Justin Bieber will put his criminal vandalism case behind him on Wednesday (July 09). Online tabloid TMZ reports that Bieber is set to plead no contest to misdemeanor vandalism, for allegedly pelting a neighbor's home with eggs in January. Reps for Bieber will appear in court to make the plea. The singer is not expected to receive any jail time, but instead be put on probation and get community service. George Clooney criticized Britain's Daily Mail for publishing a "completely fabricated" story saying his future mother-in-law is against his upcoming marriage to Amal Alamuddin. The story, published online, said Alamuddin's mother was telling family that she is not happy about the wedding for religious reasons. Clooney said "none of the story is factually true." The MailOnline issued a statement apologizing to Clooney, his fiancee and her mother. Keira Knightley visited South Sudan. The actress was there on behalf of Oxfam, helping to raise awareness about severe hunger problems. While there, the British star met with locals and listened to their stories. The U.N. has warned that if the aid effort in South Sudan does not increase, 50,000 children could die from malnutrition.
