Justin Bieber Sued

Justin BIeberJustin Bieber is being sued by a photographer who says his bodyguard locked him in a restaurant.

Manuel Munoz claims in a new lawsuit that he was taking pictures of the "Believe" hitmaker as he left the SET Nightclub in Miami Beach in January - hours before the singer was stopped by police for drag racing and alleged driving under the influence (DUI) - and was chased by the 20-year-old star's minder Dwayne Patterson into a nearby Subway eatery.

According to the photographer, the bodyguard locked the restaurant door and cornered him in the bathroom, demanding he delete the photos, before trying to "forcibly" remove the memory card and kicking and punching him, damaging his camera in the process.

However, a police report obtained by TMZ shows the photographer made no mention of being punched and kicked, but that he was tripped, causing a "small scratch in his left knee."

Oprah Winfrey Sued by Nuclear Physicist

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Legal Issues,

Oprah WinfreyOprah Winfrey is being sued by a nuclear physicist.

Charles D. Goodman, an 86-year-old scientist, has filed a lawsuit in San Miguel County District Court against the media mogul, arguing that a plot of land she purchased near Telluride, south-west Colorado, denies people access to public trails. Oprah, 60, bought the 66 acres of land in Mountain Village - which was originally owned by the U.S Forest Service - for $10.85 million in March this year.

Since then, Mr. Goodman argues that Oprah's company have ignored the Forest Service's clause that public access must be included in all trades of the land and access to the trails is no longer available to Goodman and his family and other residents, access they have enjoyed for almost 30 years.

"I don't care if Oprah is a neighbour, but if she is going to cut off access to trails, I don't find that acceptable," Goodman told The Denver Post newspaper.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Rumors,

Ellen PageEllen Page has called the sexual abuse allegations against X-Men director Bryan Singer "super disturbing."

The actress, who stars in X-Men: Days of Future Past, has spoken out about Bryan's ordeal, after two men accused him of abuse when they were teenagers.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the star called the claims "super, super disturbing" and said, "I guess the truth will come out in the way that it does, but it's hard to hear about someone being in that situation, someone you like working with." But whatever happens in the case, she said, "I do think that there's a systematic issue of people in places of power manipulating and abusing young people."

"Defendant Singer told plaintiff how 'this group' controls Hollywood. Singer masturbated plaintiff and then performed oral sex upon him. Defendant Singer solicited plaintiff to perform oral sex upon him, which plaintiff resisted... Singer flagrantly disregarded plaintiff's unwillingness to submit, and forced plaintiff's head underwater to make plaintiff perform oral sex upon him. When plaintiff pulled his head out of the water in order to breathe, defendant Singer demanded that he continue which plaintiff refused. Defendant Singer then forced plaintiff to continue performing oral sex upon him outside of the pool, and subsequently forcibly sodomized plaintiff," the suit reads.

The couple were taking legal action against YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley for posting a 150-second video of the rapper's lavish proposal at San Francisco's AT&T Park stadium, but the tech entrepreneur had sought for the case to be dismissed on constitutional grounds, claiming it violated his rights to free speech.

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

Justin BieberJustin Bieber will be deposed and questioned about an attack on a photographer.

The "Baby" hitmaker, who is being sued for allegedly instructing his bodyguard to attack Jeffrey Binion and take his camera after he took photographers of the 19-year-old star outside a recording studio in Miami last June, had tried to block the paparazzo's lawyers from interviewing him about the incident but a judge dismissed his appeal, according to documents filed in the city's Third District Court of Appeal last Tuesday.

"Miami Judge Sarah Zabel initially denied Bieber's requests to stop Binion's lawyers from deposing him and asking questions about other incidents involving him and his varied bodyguards' aggressive behavior. Although Bieber's lawyers appealed the judge's rulings, the appeal was denied. Bieber can no longer hide. Binion's lawyers are waiting for a deposition date to be set in Miami," a source said.

The judge also denied the Canadian star's request to stop the public's right to view his scheduled videotaped deposition.
