Madonna Fails to Report for Jury Duty

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Legal Issues,

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.

L'Wren ScottL'Wren Scott has been found dead in her apartment.

The 47-year-old celebrated fashion designer - who was dating Rolling Stones star Mick Jagger - was found hanging from a scarf on a doorknob in her home in Manhattan, New York, earlier today, police told the New York Daily News newspaper.

The body is said to have been found by her assistant at her 200 11th Avenue address at around 10 o'clock this morning and although it's been claimed that police do not suspect foul play, the Medical Examiner's Office will determine the cause of death.

L'Wren has previously spoken out about her hate for being referred to simply as Mick Jagger's girlfriend as she wanted to be recognized for her own talents, although she often used the rocker as her muse. "I'm a fashion designer. I don't want to be defined as someone's girlfriend. You always wonder if people will pay attention to the hard work that goes into what you do. And when you're taking something on your own, it's your company, your investment - your life," she previously said. The former model designed all of her 70-year-old boyfriend's outfits for the Rolling Stones' 50th anniversary tour.

David Burka and Neil Patrick Harris with their kidsNeil Patrick Harris thinks moving to New York City will help his children's education.

The How I Met Your Mother star and his fiance David Burtka are relocating from Los Angeles to the East coast, and although the weather isn't as nice, he believes the move will ultimately be better for their three-year-old twins, Gideon and Harper.

"When we're lugging two children through the snow and sleet and wind, I don't know whether we'll enjoy it so much. But I think the kids' eyes will be open to a lot of things that I wouldn't have thought to show them in Los Angeles," he told Life & Style.

Neil and David recently bought a $3.6 million, 8,000-square-foot townhouse in Harlem, which boasts four bedrooms, two terraces, a backyard and rooftop, as well as a duplex apartment underneath which they are expected to incorporate into their new home.

Jake Gyllenhaal and his mystery womanJake Gyllenhaal has been spotted with a new mystery woman in New York City.

The End of Watch star, who recently ended his six-month relationship with model Alyssa Miller, sparked speculation he has already moved on as he strolled around SoHo with a pretty brunette woman on Saturday. The 33-year-old actor looked scruffy and extremely relaxed as he chatted with his companion, who wore matching snow boots, according to the MailOnline website.

Jake is currently shooting his upcoming film Everest, about a 1996 hiking disaster that left eight climbers dead, in Italy, Iceland and Nepal, but flew back to New York to attend Philip Seymour Hoffman's funeral with his pal Michelle Williams on Friday. The duo formed a close friendship on the set of Brokeback Mountain in 2005, and Jake is the godfather to Michelle's eight-year-old daughter, Matilda, with the late Heath Ledger.

A source previously revealed that Jake split from Sports Illustrated beauty Alyssa, 24, in December after they struggled to cope with him relocating to Los Angeles to film his upcoming movie Nightcrawler.

Katie Holmes and Jamie FoxxKatie Holmes spent the weekend in New York City with Jamie Foxx.

The duo, who first sparked rumors they were dating in August after they were spotted dancing at a party in the Hamptons, reportedly flew into the city from Los Angeles together but attended the Super Bowl separately on Sunday, as they are eager to keep their romance under-wraps out of "respect" for the 35-year-old actress' ex-husband, Tom Cruise, who is good friends with Jamie.

"Katie flew private to California to stay with Jamie at his home around the Grammys [on January 26]. Foxx's beautiful daughter Corinne was his date for the Grammys. But he and Holmes also spent time together during Super Bowl weekend, although they attended the game separately," a source said.

Emma WatsonEmma Watson is looking for an apartment in New York.

The 23-year-old actress reportedly has her eye on a lavish pad in an upmarket region of Manhattan, as she was spotted viewing properties in the area on Monday. It seems money is no object for the former Harry Potter star either, as she was looking at homes within a new building at 150 East 72nd Street, which has apartments priced up to $15 million, reports the New York Post newspaper.

The British beauty had previously looked at buying a New York home two years ago, and was said to have been considering splashing out on a $3.3 million penthouse near Central Park.

Emma - who is dating Oxford University rugby star Matthew Janney - is currently studying her final year of an English degree at Brown University in Rhode Island. The actress initially enrolled at Brown in 2010 but later dropped out to film the last Harry Potter film Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2. She then transferred to Oxford University the following year but had to put her studies on hold when she was cast in The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.

Taylor SwiftTaylor Swift is reportedly looking for a new home in New York City.

The "Red" singer has been viewing apartments in Greenwich Village in the hopes of finding a new pad, the New York Daily News Confidenti@l column is reporting.

Money is clearly no object for the 24-year-old star, who visited a $12 million Leroy St. townhouse that was once the home of West Side Story writer Arthur Laurents, with a mystery man by her side. "She was well dressed and seemed in good spirits. She was being driven around with this good-looking guy who looked about her age," an eyewitness said.

The impressive 1850s four-bedroom redbrick property spans over 4,400 square feet and is a stone's throw away from Hollywood heavyweight Robert De Niro's pad.

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux Moving to NYC

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Dating, Rumors,

Jennifer Aniston and Justin TherouxJennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are moving back to New York.

The couple - who have been dogged by rumors their relationship is in trouble - have been based in Los Angeles, but with the actor undertaking several commitments in the Big Apple this year, his fiancee has agreed to relocate with him so they can spend more time together.

"Jen and Justin have talked at length about the possibility of moving back to New York to give their relationship a proper shot because at the moment they are barely seeing each other. Justin can't leave New York for the foreseeable future because he is filming The Leftovers, so Jen has agreed to move back there predominantly so they can make it work and be together. Jen and Justin decided this was the only answer if they want to stay together because having a long-distance relationship just wasn't working out for them," a source said.

The couple plan to make the move later this month, and though Jennifer is expecting the change to be tough, she thinks the sacrifices she is making are worth it. "The real gesture is being made by Jen, because she's got two movies in production at the moment, so taking time out to be with Justin is a seriously big deal... It will be hard, as Justin will be working long hours filming and she will be away from many of her closest friends in Los Angeles but she thinks it is worth a go and will make trips back to LA, of course," the source added.
