Not So Fast, Enrique Iglesias!


Enrique Iglesias probably won’t be your hero, baby…at least if you’re on the passenger side.

The singer got busted for trying to slip out of the driver’s seat of his ride when cops pulled him over recently, which is a very dignified way of saying, “why yes, officer, I AM driving with a suspended license. Thanks so much for checking in on me!”

According to TMZ, Iglesias was driving a white Cadillac Escalade back in May when cops pulled him over for driving in a closed off express lane (which is something you should DEFINITELY do if you are driving with a suspended license). That’s when Miama police say Enrique did the old switcheroo- he hopped into the back seat while his passenger slid into the driver’s seat.

Obvi, cops were NOT amused.

Enrique and the passenger, his tour manager, both got arrested and as of now, both pled not guilty to obstruction. Enrique also pled not guilty to driving with a suspended license.

I’m no fortune teller, but sounds to me like you have some community service and a major fine in your future, Enrique.  Next time- get your license renewed, and maybe stick to OPEN express lanes?

On that note, have a save weekend, y’all.

Mischa Barton Is Suing Her Own Mother?!

Mischa Barton Sued For $320,000 Over 'Promoted' Movie Snub

This family drama sounds SO FUN. And by fun, I mean like a living nightmare. 

Mischa Barton is suing her own mother/manager for taking a large chunk of her salary on The Hoarder, a new film she’s acting in…and for kicking her out of her own home.  According to the filed lawsuit against momager Nuala Barton, the 29-year-old is claiming her mother is a “Greedy stage mother posing as a talent manager.”


The document also says Nuala lied to Mischa about her income for her work on the new indie flick; when the actress found out what she was actually making from the production company on the set (which was, uh, a lot more than she thought) and naturally, she was pretty pissed. In the lawsuit, Nuala took the difference and a 10% management fee, but no specific numbers were revealed in the legal docs.

In ADDITION, the actress claims Nuala used her name to start a handbag line and to open a Mischa Barton fashion boutique in London, and kept all that moolah for herself.

And FINALLY, Mischa is claiming her mom changed up the paperwork to give herself co-ownership of Mischa’s the eight bedroom, 11 bath Beverly Hills mansion, taking out loans against the property and kicking Mischa out of her own house!

Apparently neither Barton parent have had a job outside of their daughter’s brand in years, and I can see why. Sounds like they are totally taking advantage of Mischa’s fame. This would be crazy even if it was just a manager, but a MOM and manager? Man, so sad.

Jeremy Renner Strikes Settlement Deal With Estranged Wife

The Bourne Legacy Rome Photocall

Jeremy Renner can finally put a tumultuous chapter of his life behind him.

The actor’s battle with estranged wife Sonni Pacheco has somewhat officially come to an end, as she has FINALLY agreed to a settlement, something Jeremy was hoping for since December.

The settlement includes both custody and child support involving their 2-year-old daughter Ava, under terms which involve joint custody and a stipend of 13K a month for child support.  Pacheco will get no spousal support, however, as the marriage lasted a mere 10 months (ahh, Hollywood) and there was no prenup.

According to TMZ, Sonni’s lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, hinted that there could be more issues than the settlement, but Jeremy’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, rolled her eyes to the judge and said the case was fully resolved.

So, it it?

Sonni filed for divorce back in December of 2014 and since the two have been fighting bitterly over the custody of their daughter…Pacheco wanting primary custody and Jeremy wanting a 50/50 split. What’s weird is that Jeremy’s had 50% custody since they split, so the 100% custody seems a little like a power play (gross).

 I hope this is the end of the line for these fightin’ exes…

Tom Petty Addresses Sam Smith Controversy

Z100's Jingle Ball 2014

Tom Petty finally issued a statement about all this Sam Smith copyright hubub, and it’s chill, laid back and low key (just like Petty).

As you know, Petty and his Traveling Wilbury’s partner Jeff Lynne were awarded royalties to Smith’s “Stay With Me.” In a statement to Billboard, the rock legend praises Smith and tells everyone that errythings gonna be all right:

About the Sam Smith thing. Let me say I have never had any hard feelings toward Sam. All my years of songwriting have shown me these things can happen.  Most times you catch it before it gets out the studio door but in this case it got by. Sam’s people were very understanding of our predicament and we easily came to an agreement. The word lawsuit was never even said and was never my intention. And no more was to be said about it. How it got out to the press is beyond Sam or myself. Sam did the right thing and I have thought no more about this. A musical accident no more no less. In these times we live in this is hardly news. I wish Sam all the best for his ongoing career. Peace and love to all.

See? Cool as a cucumber, and no feelings hurt. What do you think about the statement? Should Petty have been harsher on Smith?
