Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Legal Issues,

Kanye West and Kim KardashianKanye West has been sentenced to two years probation.

The "Blood on the Leaves" rapper was in court today where he pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges of battery against a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport last year. In a special plea deal, the City Attorney did not make Kanye plead guilty and will be allowed to maintain is innocence legally.

As well as his probation, the rapper will have to undertake 250 hours of community service and undergo anger management counseling.

Kanye was originally charged with counts of battery and grand theft after an altercation with photographer Daniel Ramos at the airport in July last year. The photographer claimed he was punched and Kanye wrestled his camera to the ground during what he claimed was an unprovoked altercation. Kanye was not in court, but Daniel testified saying he felt the rapper should go to jail, claiming his emotional injuries are still prominent and he thinks the star had used the incident to promote his album Yeezus.

Ray J and Whitney Houston

Whitney Houston's boyfriend Ray J will seek counseling to help him cope with the singer's recent death. The record producer is heartbroken after Whitney, 48, died last month - after allegedly taking a lethal combination of drugs and alcohol - and his sister Brandy has urged him to seek professional help to manage his grief.

"'Ray J is obviously absolutely devastated by the loss of Whitney, who he says was the love of his life. Even though a month has passed since she died, Ray still can't believe that Whitney is gone. He has saved voicemail messages on his cell phone from her that he has been listening to. His sister Brandy has urged him to go to counseling to deal with this loss, and he has finally agreed. Brandy and her brother are extremely close, and she has been a rock for him in the weeks since Whitney died. However, Brandy is also dealing with a huge loss, as she worked with Whitney professionally, and loved her like an older sister. Brandy recognizes that she can only help her brother so much. Ray has promised Brandy he will see someone," a source said.

Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller

UPDATE: You can hear Brooke’s 911 call here.

Charlie Sheen may have only been in jail for less than a day, but it’s doubtful he’ll be celebrating this New Year’s Eve.

The actor, who was arrested on Christmas Day for some type of domestic violence-related incident, is reportedly back in Los Angeles after a short stay in a Colorado jail. Meanwhile, wife Brooke Mueller was recently spotted in Aspen—the same city where Sheen was taken into custody on Friday.

Although the Two and a Half Men star was initially booked for second-degree assault, menacing and criminal mischief, formal charges have not yet been filed by prosecutors. Unfortunately, Mueller, who was reportedly drunk when she made the 911 call, has not been cooperating with authorities and has since tried to recant her statement. One claim she made is that Sheen threatened her with a knife.

South Korea to Cure Cyberspace Addicts

South Korean Boot Camp

South Korea has decided that Cyberspace Addiction is a definite problem and has created the Jump Up Internet Rescue School to fix it. Students must go through military type obstacle courses, counseling sessions, and workshops to teach pottery and drumming to get away from those keyboards to break “bad” habits. The government has come up with an actual checklist based on the K-Scale (for Korea) and claims that about 2.4 million people under 18 are close to becoming addicts there. We are thinking that instead of trying to cure them, they might just take those same users and find out how they can help their country with their obvious technological skills.
