Adele sex tape claim spawns threat of legal action from Grammy winner

Rumors of an Adele sex tape have spawned threats of legal action from the Grammy Award-winning singer against anyone promoting the alleged video. French paparazzo Jean-Claude Elfassi stated Thursday via Twitter that he had a copy of an Adele sex tape, and French tabloid Public published photos allegedly taken from the video. Lawyers for Adele, however, say there is no such tape, the photos are fakes, and they will sue the pants off anyone claiming otherwise.

The French tabloid magazine, Public, screamed the alleged leak of an Adele sex tape in the headline of their latest issue: “Exclusive! Adele sex tape! Her ex’s revenge!” According to the tabloid, one of Adel’s ex-boyfriends leaked the sex tape video to get back at her for becoming famous over her poignant break-up songs. The tabloid reportedly printed three pages of alleged Adele sex tape photos from the video. The photos supposedly showed the singer “in the back seat of her car” and the tabloid called them “very risqué” and “shocking.”

Michael Jackson Trial Live Stream: Dr. Conrad Murray Girlfriends to Testify

Testimony continued in the Michael Jackson manslaughter trial on Monday. An emergency room doctor who attempted to resuscitate Jackson testified that Dr. Conrad Murray did not inform hospital staff he had been dosing the pop star with the surgical sedative propofol for months before his death. Tune in to watch the Michael Jackson trial live stream below for the latest updates.

In addition to the testimony of emergency room personnel, prosecutors are expected to call three of Dr. Conrad Murray’s girlfriends to the stand soon. One of Murray’s girlfriends, Sade Andig, testified in January that she was on the phone with Murray at the time Michael Jackson allegedly stopped breathing.

“I didn’t hear him on the phone anymore,” Anding said during her previous testimony. “I heard commotion as if the phone was in a pocket and I heard coughing and I heard a mumbling of voices.”

Another of Murray’s girlfriends, Bridgette Morgan, will reportedly testify that she spoke to him by phone just 30 minutes before Michael Jackson died. Nicole Alvarez, another of Murray’s girlfriends and the mother of his youngest child, will also reportedly testify. She is expected to tell jurors about the propofal used by Murray on Michael Jackson, which she claims was shipped to her address.

Dr. Conrad Murray Trial Continues With ER Doctor Testimony

The Dr. Conrad Murray trial continued on Monday with testimony from ER doctor Richelle Cooper about pop superstar Michael Jackson‘s death. Cooper testified in court on Friday that Dr. Conrad Murray never told hospital staff he had given Michael Jackson a dose of the surgical anesthetic propofol before the singer went into cardiac arrest.

Dr. Richelle Cooper, who was part of the team that attempted to resuscitate Michael Jackso at the Ronald Reagon UCLA Medical Center, said Murray only told her he had given Jackson two small doses of the sedative lorazepam. She said that Murray made no mention that he had been dosing Michael Jackson with propofol for several months to help him sleep.

According to her testimony, Dr. Cooper claims she gave paramedics permission to declare Michael Jackson dead at his mansion, but Dr. Conrad Murray insisted the singer be taken to the hospital for additional resuscitation efforts. A paramedic at the scene previously testified they believed Jackson was dead for at least 20 minutes before emergency personnel arrived on scene.

When Michael Jackson arrived at UCLA Medical Center, Dr. Cooper said her “assesment when he arrived was that he was clinically dead.”

The legal team for Dr. Conrad Murray claims Michael Jackson injected himself with the large dose of propofol that killed him. Murray has pleaded not guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson. Murray could receive four years in prison if he is convicted.

Jay-Z and Beyonce Pregnant: Announcement at VMAs Steals The Show

Beyoncé Knowles stole the show at the Video Music Awards on Sunday night when she announced live on stage that she was pregnant with Jay-Z‘s baby. Dressed in an elegant, loose-fitting red gown, Beyoncé teased reporters before her performance by cupping her belly and saying, “I have a surprise.”

Beyoncé, 29, has been plagued with pregnancy rumors for years and it seems like the latest round of gossip about her growing baby bump actually were true after all!

Before performing “Love on Top” at the VMAs, Beyoncé told the audience, “I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside of me.” After her performance, Beyoncé unbuttoned her jacked, rubbed her rounded stomach and visually announced that she and husband Jay-Z were expecting a baby. The screams from the audience were deafening.

Beyoncé’s husband, rapper Jay-Z, reacted to his wife’s announcement with a beaming smile, clapping loudly while Kanye West slapped him on the back.

“I think she’ll be an incredible mother,” Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland told EOnline.com. “She’s always been motherly. I think that takes after so many traits from her mother [Tina Knowles]. I just think it’s going to be so natural for her. It’s natural for her now. I can’t believe this to this day.”

Beyoncé’s pregnancy could delay her role in Clint Eastwood‘s remake film of A Star Is Born, which was tentatively due to start shooting in February, according to Deadline.com.

Trace Adkins Home Destroyed in Fire, Family Not Injured

Country music star Trace Adkins lost his Nashville home in a fire on Saturday. Luckily, no one was injured in the fire, but the house was completely destroyed.

Trace Adkins was reportedly on a plane to Alaska when the fire broke out at his home in the suburb of Brentwood near Nashville, TN. His three children were at home with a sitter but all managed to escape the flames without injury.

“The home Trace Adkins shares with his family has been lost in a fire that began early Saturday evening,” a spokeswoman for the singer said in a press statement. “Thankfully, Mr. Adkins, his wife Rhonda and their three daughters are unharmed.”

The entire Brentwood fire department turned out to try to fight the blaze, which was reported at 3:35PM, but they were unable to save the structure. TMZ.com reports the fire began in the garage, according to Brian Goss, the Assistant Fire Chief for the Brentwood fire department. Adkins’ 5,000-square foot home is a total loss after flames rapidly consumed the building.

Trace Adkins’ wife, Rhonda, was on her way home to Tennessee from Atlanta when a neighbor called to tell her the house was on fire. Rhonda Adkins told Channel 4 News that the family had a fire plan in place and everyone, including the family dog, got out safely.

“I’m just numb,” the singer’s wife of 14 years told The Tennessean. “I’m sad because we lost irreplaceable things like all Trace’s awards and our family photos. [But] you can replace things, not people. I’m just glad that my children are safe.”

Trace Adkins is scheduled to play at the CMA Music Festival next Saturday before heading back to Alaska for more shows starting on June 8.

Lady Gaga postpones Paris show – again

Paris just doesn’t seem to be working out very well for Lady Gaga.  A show scheduled for October had to be postponed due to street demonstrations regarding the legal retirement age, and now the rescheduled show has had to be postponed yet again, this time because of the heavy winter storms covering the region.

Gaga’s equipment trucks were prevented from reaching the venue because of safety regulations that limit the maximum weight load certain roads can handle in the snow.  She wanted to do a version of her show without her elaborate stage setup, but even the power sources and the sound system were unavailable, so the show has had to be postponed again.  Perhaps the third time will be the charm?
