Leighton Meester Wins Court Battle Against Mother

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Legal Issues,

Leighton MeesterLeighton Meester has won her court battle against her mother.

Constance Meester had claimed the pair had an oral contract guaranteeing the actress would pay her $10,000 a month in response to papers filed by the Gossip Girl star in July 2011 claiming the $7,500 she sent home each month to help care for her younger brother was misused by her mother for personal reasons, such as cosmetic surgeries.

Although Constance - who countersued for $3 million in damages - dropped her court case in December, Gossip Girl star Leighton pursued the legal action in order to obtain a ruling stating that she does not owe her mother parental support. According to gossip website TMZ, Judge Gregory Alacron ruled yesterday that there was no valid agreement for Leighton to pay Constance any amount of money.

iPhone 5 metal back

Video footage of the purported next-generation iPhone has surfaced today, courtesy of ETrade Supply, a reseller of parts. The video appears to confirm the new iPhone images we posted a couple of weeks ago, showing the two-tone rear metal casing of the next Apple smartphone, as well as a taller profile with larger display. Other changes that seem to be confirmed include the move of the headphone jack from the top of the device to the bottom, larger speakers, and a much smaller dock port. We also see that the SIM card tray in the new model is a bit smaller that the ones Apple has used in the past.

Kanye West Rants at Fan

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Concerts / Tours, Hip-Hop & Rap,

Kanye WestKanye West launched an expletive-filled tirade against a fan during his performance in Paris at the weekend.

The "All Of The Lights" hitmaker was furious when an audience member shone a laser pen in his direction at the show in France, causing the star - who was performing as part of he and Jay-Z's Watch The Throne world tour - ordered the man to "chill the f**k out" or be thrown out of the venue.

"You see this guy right here with the green laser? Don't f**k with everybody's show. This is not a f**king game. You're going to get f**ked up and kicked out, I don't want that s**t. So chill the f**k out," he said.

Following his rant, Kanye attempted to get the show back on track: "Are y'all having a good time this evening? I said, are y'all having a good time this evening?"

The gig was shrouded in further controversy because of a Tweet sent by Jay-Z's friend Gwyneth Paltrow.

Arctic Monkeys

Metallica thinks that Arctic Monkeys is a "heavy metal band disguised as an indie band."

The "Enter Sandman" group have signed the British rockers to appear at their Orion festival in the US, and while some think they are a weird choice to play alongside a metal band, drummer Lars Ulrich can see the band's hidden heavier side: "For me, having the Arctic Monkeys on there is big. I think they're a heavy metal band disguised as an indie band. If you listen to a song like 'Perhaps Vampires Is a Bit Strong But...' there's almost a Rush element in there."

X-Men: First Class Sequel to Feature Time Travel

X-Men: First ClassThe X-Men: First Class' sequel is set to feature time travel.

The makers of the movie have registered the title Days Of Future Past - which is one of the most famous story arcs from the comic book series - with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), according to aintitcool.com. The storyline switches between the present day and a future in which mutants are an outlawed species, following the assassination of Senator Kelly by villain Magneto (Michael Fassbender). Kitty Pryde manages to warn her future self of the threat and the X-Men embark on a race against time to stop Magneto before it's too late.

Simon Kinberg, who also worked as a screenwriter on X-Men: The Last Stand will write the script while Matthew Vaughn will once again direct.

Matthew has previously spoken about his ideas for the sequel saying he would only bring in one new character: "We will only have one more new character. I won't say who he or she is! But we will only be bringing one more new character in. Because, I think, as Professor X (James McAvoy) is in a wheelchair, Magneto needs to have a nemesis he can fight with. Someone that will be his equal. I know who it is. It would be nice if I could say something, but I can't!"
