Miley Cyrus Obtains Permanent Restraining Order

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Legal Issues,

Miley CyrusMiley Cyrus has secured a permanent restraining order against an obsessed fan.

Devon Meek - who was arrested near the "Wrecking Ball" hitmaker's Los Angeles home on May 16 and previously claimed he would rather die than spend another day without her - must stay 100 yards away from her for the next three years. The new court order also prevents him from going near any of the venues where the blonde beauty is performing, according to gossip website TMZ.com.

Miley's lawyers obtained the permanent protection order in court today after they filed an emergency restraining order last month. Meek, 24, previously claimed that Miley was communicating with him through the radio and believed she told him that she "adores" him.

A law enforcement source said Meek, who also said he hears "screaming voices" in his head, is still undergoing treatment after initially being hospitalized under a 5150 involuntary psychiatric hold. "Mr. Meek stated that when he is released from the hospital, he will not stop seeking Ms. Cyrus and that he will continue to go to Ms. Cyrus' residence until Ms. Cyrus accepts him or he dies," the insider also previously said.

Ad-Rock and Mike DBeastie Boys have been awarded $1.7 million in a copyright lawsuit.

The surviving members of the hip-hop group - Michael "Mike D" Diamond and Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz - have been handed the payout after winning their legal case against Monster Beverage Corporation, which they sued for the unauthorized use of their music in a video advert.

The commercial featured five of the "Fight For Your Right" hitmakers' songs in a "Beastie Boys Megamix" and a message which read, "RIP MCA" to promote a show in 2012.

The groups' final member Adam "MCA" Yauch, who passed away in the same year after a three-year battle with salivary gland cancer, stated in his will that his likeness or art - which includes the music he made with Beastie Boys - was not to be used in any promotional material. "In no event may my image or name or any music or artistic property created by me be used for advertising purposes," the document read.

MadonnaMadonna is being sued over her fitness brand.

The "Hung Up" hitmaker has been accused by beauty and fashion company Hard Candy of maliciously stealing their name to sell exercise DVDs and apparel and the firm have filed a lawsuit in federal court for trademark infringement and unfair competition.

The case claims the 55-year-old singer began selling her goods under the Hard Candy name in 2011 despite a previous rejection from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. "Defendants' actions have caused and will cause Hard Candy, LLC irreparable harm for which money damages and other legal remedies are inadequate. Unless Defendants are restrained by this Court, Defendants will continue and/or expand the improper activities alleged in this Complaint and otherwise continue to cause great and irreparable harm and injury to Hard Candy, LLC," federal court papers obtained by RadarOnline.com state.

The lawsuit also targets Madonna's manager Guy Oseary, but claims the "Material Girl" singer is "the driving force behind the infringing activity, taking credit herself for the initial selection and subsequent expansion."

MadonnaMadonna has failed to report for jury duty.

The 55-year-old star had been summoned to the Manhattan Supreme Court at 111 Centre Street near City Hall in New York to perform her civic duty along with a jury of her peers but failed to attend, according to the New York Post newspaper.

The "Hung Up" singer allegedly did not inform the court she would not be attending, despite New York jurors being granted one automatic postponement upon application, and therefore at 9 am court security were expecting her to arrive.

Madonna - who reportedly earns $1 million for each of her stage appearances and whose real name is Madonna Louise Ciccone - last participated in jury service in 2008 at a court in Beverly Hills, California, but the case was dismissed just fours later.

Chris BrownChris Brown has been sentenced to 131 days in prison.

The 24-year-old singer has been forced to spend just over four months behind bars after he admitted in a Los Angeles court yesterday that he violated his probation by getting into a fight in Washington D.C. last year.

The judge, James R. Brandlin, originally sentenced the "Loyal" hitmaker to 365 days in custody, but gave him credit for the 234 days he has already spent in rehab and jail. However, it is unclear how long he will actually serve as he could get out earlier due to over-crowding in the prison.

The judge also ordered Chris, who has recently been diagnosed with Bipolar disorder, to attend therapy sessions with a shrink twice a week and undergo random drug testing three times a week, according to TMZ.com.

Emma RobertsEmma Roberts is "scared" about appearing in court after she was recently stopped by a police officer while driving.

The Wild Child star has a court case looming after she was pulled over in Los Angeles and ticketed for talking on a mobile phone and driving without a license. However, the 23-year-old actress insists she was wrongly accused by the officer and she was actually chomping on a bagel, rather than nattering on her phone.

"I'm eating my bagel and driving and this cop on a motorcycle is driving and I see him and I smile because he's looking at me, and before you know it the lights are flashing and I'm like, 'Who are they pulling over?' Then I realise it's me. He [the officer] goes, 'I just saw you talking on your phone.' I'm like, 'No, no, no, I was eating a bagel. My phone's in my purse.' But he was like, 'I've heard a lot of stories but eating on the bagel ... I've never heard that one,'" she recalled when appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Ariel Winter Guardianship Case Resolved

Ariel WinterAriel Winter's guardianship case has been resolved.

The Modern Family actress - who plays Alex Dunphy in the series - will remain in the care of her older sister Shanelle Grey, who took on temporary custody of the 16-year-old star in 2012 after she claimed her mother, Chrisoula Workman, was physically and mentally abusing her.

At a hearing yesterday, Chrisoula agreed Ariel could continue living with her sister - if she watched a video montage of family photographs in court. The young actress and other members of her family - including Chrisoula and Shanelle - sobbed as the video played, and then Superior Court Judge Daniel Murphy signed off on the custody agreement.

The judge advised it would be up to Ariel to decide if and when she would visit her mother, but he would keep jurisdiction over her care until she turns 18, and her father Glenn workman will remain in control of her finances.

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

Dina LohanLindsay Lohan's mother has been ordered to perform 100 hours of community service.

Dina Lohan pled guilty in court in Long Island, New York on Tuesday morning to Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and speeding last September. Along with her community service, Dina must attend a mandatory drinking and driving program, a victim impact panel, and pay the necessary fines and fees.

The 51 year old is also expected to have her license revoked and an interlock device will be installed in her car, according to gossip website TMZ.com. The Lindsay star was initially arrested for driving at "a speed of 77 mph in a 55mph zone" and police then discovered her blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit.

Shortly afterwards, her lawyer Mark Heller attempted to blame the paparazzi for the incident. "It is the professional opinion, as stated here by the evaluator, that the circumstances leading to Dina's arrest were largely impacted by ongoing daily stresses caused by you folks, the paparazzi, media attention and distorted tabloid character profiles," he said.

Chris BrownChris Brown has been ordered to stay in a Miami rehab for another two months.

Doctors at the facility blame the musician's behavior on his previously undiagnosed PTSD and bipolar disorder, but they do claim that he is making improvements and becoming less impulsive.

Despite a report in which Brown said he "is happy with the program," he reportedly didn't look too happy to hear that his stay would be extended. A probation officer wrote to the court that Brown has indeed showed progressing and "[responding] well to treatment," but he additionally pointed out that the positive changes in his behavior "[have] occurred only recently."

Brown had been placed in rehab back in November after his was charged with a misdemeanor assault in Washington, D.C. - a direct violation of his probation for his 2009 assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna.
