Justin Bieber faces legal trouble in Brazil
Nothing good has yet to come Justin Bieber’s way. While on the South American leg of his “Believe” tour, the 19-year-old pop star has been charged with vandalism in Brazil.
After a week of being spotted partying at all hours of the night and participating in all sorts of bad boy antics, the Biebs is finally getting caught. The “Bad Day” singer chose to paint graffiti on the side of the Hotel Nacional in the Joá neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro. Bieber chose to tag the words “Free Breezy” in support of singer Chris Brown and show homage to his fans with the words “Beilebers 4 Ever.” A complaint was filed last week as locals were upset by the pop stars art, being displayed on the side of a $30 million hotel.
A rep for the Grammy nominee says every place that Justin and friends painted graffiti was pre-approved. The complaints led to an investigation by the Rio police, where Bieber was found guilty of vandalism. Now that he has been convicted, the “Boyfriend” singer has to either pay a fine or spend three months to a year in jail.
Bieber, took to his Instagram to defend himself ,posting a picture of his artwork with the caption “Every place I have tagged has been approved I do not suggest tagging private property. I still suck but I have fun doing it.” Despite his latest legal woes, Bieber is continuing on with the South American leg of his world tour, telling fans on Instagram “Who’s gon stop me haaannn.”
Charlie Sheen custody controversy
The Charlie Sheen custody battle saga continued this week with ex-wife Denise Richards throwing in the towel. The former Bond girl told the court earlier in the week that she could no longer raise ex-husband Sheen’s twin boys with Brooke Mueller. Richards revealed that it was becoming extremely hard for her to take care of her own three daughters and manage the 4-year-old tykes.
After an emergency hearing over the weekend, trying to urge Richards to rethink giving up custody was unsuccessful. A source told the Daily News that the children have temporarily been placed in the care of Stephen Mueller, the brother of Sheen’s ex-wife. The boys will be making a smooth transition from Richards’ home to living in Mulholland Estates, the same gated community as their half-siblings and father, Sheen.
The news of the boys’ custody arrangement upset Sheen, leading him to voice his opinion over Twitter. The Anger Management star tweeted that his sons were now in “harms way and grave danger.” He told the Department of Children and Family Services that he believes the children suffer from fetal alcohol syndrome and wants them to be tested.
As Mueller continues to struggle with drug use and goes in and out of rehab, Sheen is seeking a different living situation for his twin boys. The uncle, Stephen Mueller, is asking the court to order Sheen to pay $55,000 a month as the young boys transition into their new temporary home.
Will Smith’s racy photo scandal
Will Smith is involved in a bit of a cheating scandal. Racy photos of the actor and a mystery woman appeared in Star magazine with the story inside reading, “cheats with sexy 23-year-old.”
Soon the hot and steamy pictures of a shirtless 45-year-old Smith cuddling and lifting his shirt with the unidentified blonde emerged on the web. As the pictures made their rounds around gossip blogs, the media buzzed with rumors of infidelity.
It was revealed that the mystery woman was Smith’s co-star, Margot Robbie, an Australian actress. The two actors took the eyebrow raising pictures in between takes while filming scenes for their new movie “Focus.” The budding actress spoke out against the photographs claiming there was “absolutely no truth to the ridiculous rumor.”
She took to Twitter to tweet her frustration about the shocking rumor, saying “It’s disappointing that goofing around on set could be taken so out of context.” The ‘Fresh Prince’ has yet to directly comment on the alleged affair.
A source confirmed with People magazine that the pair is not on the verge of splitting. The two were spotted enjoying each other’s company and posing for family photos along with their two children Willow and Jaden, putting those nasty rumors to rest.
