Lilo Almost Home Free; Bobby Brown Arrested; Fake Will Smith Tweets, Khloe Quits PETA
Posted 03.27.12 by Chris
If Lindsay Lohan stays out of trouble for the next 48 hours, she's home free... almost. The troubled starlet is scheduled to have her final court appointment for her probation this Thursday. TMZ reports the L.A. County District Attorney is satisfied that LiLo completed the terms of her probation (she's been on probation for four years, stemming from a DUI arrest). The D.A. said it will not object to the judge terminating Lohan's probation case. But Lohan isn't completely off the hook. Because her of jewelry incident last year (LiLo was accused of stealing a $2,500 necklace), she'll have to remain on informal probation, meaning she'll no longer have to regularly report to a probation officer or judge. If she keeps her nose clean for the next two-and-a-half years, the misdemeanor theft charge will be dismissed. Something tells us this is going to be the longest 48 hours ever.
The legal troubles for Bobby Brown are just beginning, however. Brown was arrested for DUI on Monday. Brown, the troubled ex-husband of Whitney Houston, was initially pulled over in Reseda, CA, for talking on a cell phone while driving. The officer on scene reportedly then noticed that Brown seemed impaired. Brown failed a field sobriety test, was booked on DUI, and released Monday afternoon. Brown was previously convicted of DUI back in 1996 in Georgia. In that case, he pled guilty and served 8 days in jail.
Will the real Will Smith please tweet? Spike Lee and Rosie O'Donnell were among the celebrities who retweeted a quote from Smith's Twitter account connecting the death of Trayvon Martin to the flour bombing of Kim Kardashian. The only problem? Smith isn't on Twitter. The account, @ReaIWiIISmith, turned out not to be real. The imposter tweeted: "WE live in America where a girl that threw flour on Kim Kardashian was arrested on site But the man who KILLED Trayvon Martin is still free."
Speaking of the infamous flour bomb incident... There will be one less nude celebrity now that Khloe Kardashian, who posed semi-nude for PETA's anti-fur campaign, said she's pulling her support from the group after it announced it would pay for the legal fees for the woman who flour bombed her sister, Kim. On her website, Khloe writes, "[PETA has] proved that they support this kind of behavior. I've been a vocal supporter of PETA for a long time but I have also been very vocal about anti-bullying, so this was a huge disappointment for me. As you all know, I don't condone violence and bullying and what happened last Thursday was just that. I am absolutely disgusted by their behavior." Khloe went on to say, "I personally don't wear fur but that doesn't mean I am going to force my views on anyone else, ESPECIALLY by violating them." Kim was wearing a black leather outfit when she was flour bombed.
And in talk-about-awkward news, there's this uncomfortable photo of Peter Facinelli and Jennie Garth, who recently announced they were divorcing, out shopping with their kids.
