Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Legal Issues,

Madonna‘s alleged stalker claims he won’t stop pursuing her until he meets the singer.

Retired fire-fighter Robert Linhart, who has been arrested twice since Saturday, was arraigned in court yesterday on charges of criminal mischief, graffiti and being in possession of a homemade 7.5 inch ice pick, after writing messages to the pop superstar on the pavement outside her apartment in Upper West Side, New York City.

The messages read “Meet me please,” “Tell me yes or no,” and “If it’s yes, my dream will come true. If it’s no, I will go.”

According to court documents, he reportedly told officers after his arrest on Tuesday, “I can be here. This is police brutality. I have a right to do this. I am not doing anything wrong. I keep running into Madonna. I saw her in 1992 and I’d actually like to meet her in person. I won’t stop until I actually meet Madonna. I’m going to go right back there and do it again.”

This followed his earlier arrest on Saturday, where he played loud music out of his car and was charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and criminal possession of a weapon.

Naomi Campbell Breaks Down on Oprah

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Legal Issues, Meltdowns,

Naomi Campbell breaks down on Oprah broke down in tears as she blamed her notorious temper on “abandonment issues.”

The supermodel was questioned by , who confronted her frankly about her temper - which has seen her previously lash out at her own staff, camera crews, police officers and airline workers. Naomi blamed her furious outbursts on her mother, who left her at home while she pursued a career as a ballet dancer.

When asked by Oprah if she was “just a petulant diva,” she replied, “It comes from a deeper place than that with me. It comes from another type of emotional disorder because it’s not just, if I don’t get what I want I throw a fit. It comes from, I think, an abandonment issue and it comes from also trying to just build up a family around me that’s not my immediate family and if I feel a mistrust, then, all my cards go down. It’s not a right thing to do. I just see red.”

Naomi, who is 40 this month, admitted she is ashamed of her fits of rage and is remorseful every time her temper gets the better of her. She added: “I take responsibility for the things that I have done and I do feel a great sense of shame. I am ashamed of everything I’ve ever done. I don’t have an excuse for my behavior.”
