Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Lauryn Hill’s Tax Evasion Tour In the Works

As we predicted, Lauryn Hill is about to start singing for her supper again!

The recently sprung ex-Fugees member was recently released from the clink for tax evasion and now that her three months is up, Hill is looking to make some cash to pay off the balance and feed her children (she had 5 the last time we counted).

According to sources, Hill was set to have home detention for the next three months, but she has asked the judge presiding over her case to give her permission to perform and make some money and he bought it. With that out of the way, Lauryn is busy trying to promote her new single and book venues to promote it.

Hey, it’s either this or sing ‘No Woman, No Cry’ on the sidewalks and we cannot have our hip hop legends doing that, right?!

Nick Carter Dedicates Rest of Tour to Late Sister

It is been a rough day or so for the Carter family. After losing Leslie, I can only imagine the pain and grief they must feel. Nick and Aaron both released statements about their loss.

Via Aaron’s rep:

Aaron Carter would like to thank all his fans, friends and especially his cast and crew at The Fantasticks for their outpouring of love and support during this tragic time. I am with my family spending much needed time together as we deal with this private matter. I look forward to returning to my Fantasticks’ Family and performing the role of ‘Matt’ for all my amazing fans. Again, I request privacy for my family and no further statements will be made at this time.

And Nick’s camp released the following:

Nick Carter is thankful to the many people and the fans who have shared their wishes and prayers during this tragic time. We want to let the fans know the tour will go on as promised. “Performing is cathartic to me and I am dedicating the rest of my tour to my sister since she loved to watch me perform.” Also we ask that the press to respect Nick’s privacy during his time of grief.

For all of you Nick Carter fans who have purchased tickets for any of the other remaining dates of his tour, from what it sounds like the shows will go on.

Michael Jackson’s Family checks out The Immortal World premiere in Vegas (PHOTOS)

[nggallery id=68]

The Michael Jackson The Immortal world premiere went down in Vegas over the weekend and it brought out not only the Jackson family (yes, even Michael’s three children attended and Mama Katherine, who had a big fat smile on her face), but a slew of big name celebrities. FYI: The show will continue to play there until December 14th so you still have time to head over to the Mandalay Bay Resort to check it out.

I have a feeling the Jackson family was finally able to enjoy themselves after the stressful couple of months they endured with the Conrad Murray trial and all. Ya think?

Paul McCartney to Tour with One Extra Leg?


Paul McCartney is going on a world tour and according to a source Heather Mills will be joining him.  Umm, what?  I thought he wanted to get rid of this hag?

Well, folks, we’ve seemed to forget one very important part of what came out of this marriage, besides a big headache for Paul and some big cha-ching for Heather…a little girl named Beatrice.

Because Paul is set to go on a 14-month world tour, he is determined to see his daughter and not miss any important milestones in her life.  And, in order to do so, guess who’s gotta go with?

Miss Heather Money Bags Mills.

According to a source, “He realizes he has to do some kind of deal with Heather, and to keep disruption to a minimum he has come up with this idea. He feels that letting Heather fly to him where they are touring could be the best way.”

Sounds like it will be a fun tour!
