A Creeper Was Arrested In Front Of Taylor Swift’s House

Taylor Swift Leaves Her New York Apartment

Yikes.

Yesterday afternoon, a suspicious looking man wearing army-like fatigues was swarmed and arrested after lingering too long on the driveway of Taylor Swift‘s Los Angeles compound.

According to reports, Mr. Army fatigue was taken into custody around 4 p.m. after a neighbor called in the uncomfortable lurker. The police came to the rescue, and all very calmly LAPD put the person into the back of a squad car.

Though not super threatening, it sounds like the person was mentally imbalanced because after he was questioned, the cops decided that he needed an evaluation from a hospital. No charges have been filed, but hey, her first stalker at 26? Not bad for an international superstar.

Hey Rita Ora, How’s It Feel To Be Sued? Love, Jay Z

2015 Billboard Music Awards

Rita Ora, Jay Z‘s coming for ya!

Jay’s music label, Roc Nation,  is suing his former ​protégé Rita Ora for breaking her recording contract and failing to deliver just one of the five albums she’s supposed to. So how much are four mystery albums worth to Roc Nation? A cool 2.4 million.

The Manhattan civil suit comes just six weeks after Ora sued the label in California, claiming record execs pushed her aside when they started representing professional athletes. It’s a real he said/she said, and all the lawyers are like, this is NBD, y’all. But it seems like it is:

In the new suit, Roc Nation counters that it’s spent over $2 million developing and marketing the British pop singer’s still-unreleased second album.

The label says the ​British ​​”​X Factor​”​ judge was supposed to deliver a total of five albums when she signed with Roc Nation in 2008, but has only put out one.

Roc Nation says it scooped up Ora, 25, when she was an “unknown singer” and “has tirelessly promoted [her] career, investing millions of dollars in marketing, recording and other costs, which was instrumental in guiding Ms. Ora to her current level of success and fame.”

The Los Angeles suit is still pending. Roc Nation says it filed the countersuit in Manhattan because Ora’s contact specifies that any litigation between the parties must take place in New York.

Ora’s attorney, Howard King, said, “Jay Z has personally and graciously promised Rita complete freedom from Roc Nation, the details of which are now being finalized.

“We believe that Roc Nation’s distributor, Sony Music, has required Roc Nation to file this action to preserve whatever rights Sony might have pending resolution,” King said.

Hmmm….who do you think is to blame, Rita or J? She’s been busy wearing weird outfits and  being in some Fast and the Furious movies, but other than that…is she even really a singer anymore? THOUGHTS PLZ

Conrad Hilton Is Going Into Rehab (And Loves Instagramming Hairless Cats)

Screen Shot 2016-01-27 at 11.10.36 AM

Oh Conrad Hilton, what will you instagram now that you’re going to rehab?!

On Wednesday, the hotel heir was ordered to spend 90 days in a treatment center for violating his probation last year by smoking pot on an international flight and generally going apes*it. He checked himself into rehab then, but was arrested for a second time when he violated a restraining order his ex Hunter Salomon had against him.

Paris Hilton‘s little bro should consider himself lucky that he’s not in jail, because dude seems to have no regard for law. Hilton broke his probation a second time for failing drug tests, bailing on treatment programs, trespassing and leaving CA without the permission of his probation officer. Hey, at least the dude’s dependable.

So he’s not good at most of life, but he IS good at taking pictures of hairless cats on instagram. Here’s hoping this stint in rehab will help you quit the sauce and start taking more of these adorable snaps!

Note To Self, Don’t Use Sofia Vergara’s Unlicensed Likeness If You Don’t Wanna Get SUED.

Sofia Vergara and Nick Loeb still battling it out over frozen embryos

Don’t mess with Sofia Vergara, people!

The actress just filed a $15 million lawsuit against Venus Concept for using her name and likeness in their advertising materials without her permission, after one visit and a weird selfie? Us Weekly reports:

Vergara, 43, was first linked to Venus Concept ahead of the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards in August 2014. The Colombian star used the Venus Legacy machine to get red carpet ready, and posted a WhoSay photo during the treatment.

In the selfie, Vergara rested on her stomach as a woman worked on her backside. “What is so funny Marilyn??” she wrote at the time. “Legacy massage at @drlancerrx.”

According to court documents, the company has allegedly been using blown-up photos of Vergara’s face and her name to promote its products at exhibition booths, trade shows and on the internet.

EW.  Not only is this probably pissing off her other endorsement deals(Cover Girl and Head & Shoulders, to name a few) but this seems totally freaking classless and sleazy and this needs to end. There might be no such thing as bad publicity, but I’ll tell you one thing- I’m probably not going to be using Venus Concept anytime soon.
