Suspicious Fire Destroys 50 Cent's Home

A multi-million dollar home of 50 Cent and his former girlfriend, went up in flames early this morning. The fire that one of the fire official called "definitely suspicious", completely destroyed the rapper's home in Dix Hills, New York. According to AP,

Six people, including 50's ex-girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins and their 10-year-old son, Marquis, were taken to a hospital after suffering smoke inhalation and later released. A firefighter also suffered a minor eye injury, officials said.

The house was at the centre of legal dispute between 50 Cent and his ex-girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins.

Tompkins' lawyer, Paul Catsandonis, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview that the dispute over the house had become "extremely, extremely contentious" in recent days. Although he declined to be specific, he said there was an "extremely dangerous incident" Monday in his Manhattan office while taking a deposition for the lawsuit

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Welcome Baby Twins?

After French media reports kicked off rumors of the babies’ arrival earlier today, Entertainment Tonight is now reporting that Angelina and partner Brad Pitt’s twins have indeed arrived.

The newest additions to the Jolie-Pitt clan join four siblings - Maddox, Pax, Zahara and Shiloh - who reportedly joined their mother and father in the delivery room for the oh-so-special moment.

Amy Winehouse: Doing It For the Kids

It seems that Amy Winehouse loves her fans so much that she allows them to come to her door for autographs. And yesterday she hooked some youngsters up with a photo op.

The troubled singer was spotted outside her Camden, London home posing for pictures with some children and signing a basketball. And it looks like she may be turning to religion in her times of trial.
Winehouse sported a red polka dotted scarf in her hair along with a black tank top and a pair of denim Capri shorts and a Star of David necklace, signifying her belief in Judaism.

And while her family comes from Jewish heritage, this may be the first time the “Rehab” singer has decided to embrace her religious heritage. Could she be turning the corner?

Britney Spears Conservatorship Case Stunted

PhotobucketThough she’s doing well on her road to recovery, it’s very important that Britney Spears not bite off more than she can chew. And according to her lawyer, she’s not healthy enough for court proceedings.

Samuel Ingham told Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz, “Because of changes in her treatment, it would not be appropriate and could be harmful for her to participate in court proceedings.”
His assertion was met with approval with Goetz adding that the “Gimme More” singer’s doctor had made a “differential diagnosis and wants to do additional testing in the not-distant future. She can’t participate in any meaningful way in any court proceedings.”

What does this mean for her conservatorship case then? Brit’s father Jamie is currently her co-conservator but his term, unless extended, will expire on July 31st.
