Iggy Azalea: Don’t Take My Case to Texas!

Iggy Azalea's Ex Files For Divorce; Iggy Denies Being Married

I’m sure I’m not the first to say it, but Iggy Azalea is having a TERRIBLE week!

According to TMZ, the rapper is pleading with a judge to block her ex-BF’s attempt to force her back to Texas, because she says he’s violent and she fears for her safety!

So what’s this all about? I’ll tell ya. Iggy is involved in a bitter lawsuit with her ex Hefe Wine: she sued him for downloading and trying to sell materials from her personal computer. Wine is asking the judge to move the case from L.A. to Houston (where he lives) but Iggy thinks this is no bueno, saying that Houston is his turf and he’s “vindictive and violent.” She fears if the case moves to Texas, she might be in danger.

Iggy wants to stay in LA where she feels more familiar, probably with the help of boyfriend/Lakers’ guard/6’7″/generally huge dude Nick Young.  Wow, fame seems fun but also…stressful. We got your back, Iggy!

Chris Brown is Almost Done with his Community Service

Chris Brown Talks Mistakes And Lessons On Instagram

Wow, time flies.

How do I mean? Well, Chris Brown is almost done with his 1,000 hours of community service for the assault of his ex-girlfriend Rihanna. The 25-year-old is not only almost done with his hours, but apparently he’s doing a pretty good job at it!

According to sources, the artist has been doing labor five days a week, 6 hours a day in order to complete his community service by mid-January. His duties include painting, cleaning, trash removal, and moving furniture at a facility approved by his probation officer. Apparently, he’s been super well behaved and has been successfully juggling his hours with work obligations.

Hopefully, this means Chris has turned over a new leaf…

David Schwimmer to Play Robert Kardashian in O.J. Simpson Series

2013 NBC Upfront Presentation Red Carpet Event

David Schwimmer in on O.J. Simpson Trial docudrama? Count me IN.

The Friends alum is officially joining FX’s anthology American Crime: The People v. O.J. Simpson, The Hollywood Reporter learned today.

Produced by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, the ten episode first season is based on Jeffrey Toobin‘s best-selling book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson. The season is told from the perspective of the attorneys, and chronicles the chaotic behind-the-scenes drama on both sides.  But more importantly, it will (according to the Hollywood Reporter): “display how a combination of prosecution confidence, defense wiliness and the LAPD’s history with the city’s African-American community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt.”

Schwimmer will co-star as Simpson’s friend and attorney Robert Kardashian, joining a pretty hardcore awesome cast that includes Cuba Gooding Jr. as Simpson and Sarah Paulson as prosecutor Marcia Clark.

What do you think about the casting on this new show? I’m exciiiited….

Beyonce, Jay-Z Sued Over “Drunk In Love”

Beyonce & Jay-Z Want To Try For Another Baby

Maybe don’t pop bottles just yet, you two- you got a Hungarian on your back!

Beyonce and Jay Z have apparently outraged Hungarian singer Monika Miczura, (aka Mitsou) who claims the two plus producer Timbaland ripped off a Roma folk song she recorded in 1995 for the first 13 seconds of their gigantic hit “Drunk in Love.”

That’s a big claim, lady!

Miczura wants “Drunk in Love” put on the shelf for good, saying that she never gave them permission and that they are distorting the message of her song. While Miczura’s song is about hopelessness, Beyonce twisted it “to evoke foreign eroticism alongside the sexually intense lyrics.”

According to TMZ, Mitsou says the bastardization of her song, called “Bajba, Bajba Pelem” was done by digitally manipulating her voice with Auto-Tune and various cuts. She wants some sweet, sweet cash for damages done and is also asking a judge to prohibit anyone from playing the song as long as it still has her voice.

What do you think? Does this seem like another person trying to tap into the BeyJay fortune? Or does this feel like a real claim?
