More trouble for Justin Bieber. The pop star was charged with assault and dangerous driving over the weekend after an incident near the small Canadian town where he grew up, one of his lawyers said in a statement on Tuesday (September 2).
The charges came after two drivers got into a "physical altercation" on Friday, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported, citing police. The CBC said a minivan and an all-terrain vehicle had collided in Perth East township, just outside the town of Stratford, Ontario.
Grammy-winning R&B singer Chris Brown pleaded guilty in a Washington court on Tuesday (September 2) to a misdemeanor assault charge stemming from a scuffle with a fan last year.
Brown, 25, was sentenced to time served in jail, or two days, and was ordered to pay 150 dollars (USD) in court costs. The charges stemmed from an October 2013 sidewalk altercation in which a fan tried to jump into a photo with the singer.
Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence has contacted authorities to investigate who stole and posted nude images of her online, part of a reported mass hacking of celebrities' intimate photos.
Images purporting to be of dozens of other female actresses, models and athletes were also posted. The authenticity of many could not be confirmed.
Supermodel Kate Upton was among celebrities whose photos were posted online.
Comedian Joan Rivers remained on life support on Tuesday after being hospitalized in serious condition due to cardiac arrest, her daughter Melissa said.
Rivers, 81, was hospitalized in New York last week after she stopped breathing during outpatient surgery on her vocal cords at a Manhattan clinic.
