Tamar Braxton has called it quits on her marriage to Vince Herbert, who is also her manager.
The singer and reality TV personality, who has been in a relationship with the record executive since 2003 and told him "I do" in 2008, filed for divorce Tuesday in L.A. County, according to the Associated Press. The separation happened this month.
The couple have one child, 4-year-old Logan Herbert. While Braxton is asking for joint custody, she also wants their son to live with her.
Rapper Eminem's camp prevailed Wednesday in a copyright dispute with a political party in New Zealand that used a version of his song "Lose Yourself" without permission in a 2014 election ad.
The lawsuit was brought by the song's publisher, Eight Mile Style, which according to the New Zealand Herald was awarded the equivalent of about $412,000 U.S. The court in Wellington, New Zealand's capital, deemed that sum to be the "hypothetical license fee" the party should have paid for the song in the first place, as well as damages and interest.
"This decision is a warning to soundalike music producers and their clients everywhere,” a Sydney, Australia-based attorney whose firm repped Eight Mile Style told the Associated Press. "It sets a major precedent in New Zealand and will be influential in Australia, the U.K. and elsewhere."
When Fats Domino sat at a piano and let loose, he did so with a flair that turned those 88 keys into 88 drums.
An original framer of the rock 'n' roll constitution whose way with rhythm was as singular as John Hancock's signature, Domino delivered melodies via vocal runs that explored desire, heartbreak and the allure of his New Orleans home.
The artist, who died early Tuesday at 89, documented life's emotional highs and lows while organized chaos swirled around him.
Metallica, the Dave Matthews Band and rapper G-Eazy are banding together to support Bay Area relief efforts in the aftermath of the catastrophic wildfires that ripped through the region earlier this month.
The acts have teamed up with the nonprofit Tipping Point and a coalition of local businesses calling themselves Band Together Bay Area to put on a benefit concert at San Francisco's AT&T Park on Nov. 9. More acts are expected to join the set.
The major fundraising campaign will support recovery efforts and raise money for low-income, vulnerable communities hit by the Northern California fires, which left 42 people dead and caused more than $1 billion in damage. The organization has already collected $6.5 million, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
“$32 million? Do you know how much money that is?” asked Noah. “...I’m sorry that I’m stuck on this, but it’s just an amazing amount of money to pay out, especially if you’re not guilty.”
Noah then shared the recording the New York Times released of O’Reilly denying the allegations, claiming he had “shocking evidence” to prove his downfall was somehow “politically and financially motivated.”
Paul Walker's daughter, who previously settled with the estate of the man who was driving in the fatal crash that killed her actor father in 2013, has settled a wrongful-death suit she filed against Porsche as well.
"The matter has been resolved to the satisfaction of all involved," Jeff Milam, her attorney, told The Times on Wednesday.
Meadow Walker was 16 when she filed suit against the automaker in 2015, alleging that her father initially survived the crash in November 2013 but died because he couldn't release his seat belt to escape from the sports car as it burned after a high-speed crash in Santa Clarita.
You have to get the story, so you just press the gas pedal and just take a deep breath and go, 'Ugh.' If you can feel it down here [points to stomach], way down here in the swamp, you know that you have to ask the question. It does feel terrible, but then everyone's alive at the end.
If ever there was an example of the adverse effects of late-night Twitter use, it’s the story of how Kate del Castillo became entangled in one of the most bizarre stories of modern times.
The outspoken actress has long been a household name in Latin America and beyond thanks to her roles in numerous telenovelas such as “Muchachitas” (“Girls”) and “La Reina del Sur” (“Queen of the South”). Then a 2012 tweet, in which she expressed having more trust in Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman than the Mexican government, thrust her into a media frenzy of a different sort — and captured the attention of the notorious drug lord in the process.
The tweet eventually led to text message exchanges and, ultimately, a secret introduction in Sinaloa in 2015. Del Castillo met with Guzman, who was on the run from Mexican authorities after breaking out of maximum-security prison (a second time), with the intent of making a film about his life after being contacted by his lawyers. Adding a real-life telenovela twist to the encounter: she was joined by actor Sean Penn— with whom, she reveals in the documentary, she developed a brief intimate relationship — who would go on to chronicle the experience for Rolling Stone magazine.
Notorious celebrity and fashion photographer Terry Richardson has been banned from working with any magazines under the Condé Nast International umbrella.
Condé Nast U.S. operates independently of the international group and has not worked with Richardson for years. "Condé Nast has nothing planned with him going forward," a U.S. spokesperson said Tuesday.
In a leaked memo obtained by the Telegraph, an executive with the overseas media group -- which publishes international editions of Vogue, GQ and Vanity Fair, among others -- told key staff that Richardson shoots already commissioned or those that have been completed but not published "should be killed and substituted with other material."
