Late Bee Gees star Robin Gibb excluded his love child from his will so the little girl will not receive any of his $39 million (£26 million) fortune. The singer, who died last year (12), fathered a daughter, Snow, now four, with his housekeeper Claire Yang in 2008 and he bought her a house in Oxfordshire, England before he lost his battle with cancer.
It has now emerged that Yang will be allowed to keep the house, but neither she nor her little girl were included in Gibb's will, meaning his $39 million fortune will be be handed to his widow, Dwina.
The estate includes Gibb's U.K. property as well as his share of the royalties from the Bee Gees back catalogue.
The singer's grown-up children Robin-John, Spencer and Melissa will each receive a cash payment, and they will split his assets following Dwina's death, according to documents obtained by Britain's Daily Mail.
Yes, we admit it, we got a little excited when we found out that Destiny's Child was reuniting. Can you blame us?
When Beyonce teased new music on her official Facebook page a couple days ago, we thought it might be just that, a tease. But only days later we already have the girl group's first new single in eight whole years, "Nuclear."
The song — which was produced by hip hop producer Pharrell Williams (also of The Neptunes and N.E.R.D fame) — is the last song on the upcoming Love Songs album, set for release on January 29. The other 13 tracks include:
1. "Cater 2 U'
2. "Killing Time"
3. "Second Nature"
5. "Now that She's Gone"
6. "Brown Eyes"
9. "If You Leave" (featuring Next)
12. "Say My Name" (Timbaland Remix)
What do you think of this smooth and sultry single? Do you like the slow jam, or are you too hoping some of the other singles give us the catchy beats of the girls from the past?
Have a listen below and tell us what you think of the song Bee, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams are set to play at the Super Bowl halftime show early next month.

Bee Gees' co-founder Robin Gibb has "contracted pneumonia and is in a coma," according to a statement on his website. "We are all hoping and praying that he will pull through."
The news comes less than six months after the 62-year-old singer suffered abdominal pains, later to find out he had liver and colon cancer. He was thought to have made a recovery. Especially troubling is his twin brother and fellow Bee Gees member, Maurice, died in 2003 after falling ill with intestinal problems that also started out as stomach pains. He was only 53-years-old.
Fans from around the world have been leaving messages of support and wishes for a full recovery on the singer's Facebook page.
Based on a true story The Longshots takes its inspiration from 11 year-old Illinois native Jasmine Plummer’s (Keke Palmer) incredible feat--becoming the only female quarterback ever in the Pop Warner football league. The film’s arc really revolves around the relationship between the young gridiron star and her down-on-his-luck Uncle Curtis (Ice Cube) a former high school football great who can’t seem to do anything right except keep his trouble-prone niece in line. With his own dreams on the field now reemerging in the form of Jasmine the two become an unlikely pair as he gets her to tryout for the all boys local team The Minden Browns. The skeptical coach (Matt Craven) becomes a believer watching her natural talent unfold. When he becomes ill the call goes out to Curtis to come in and help guide the team--now led by the unlikeliest of quarterbacks. In his recent family comedies Are We Done Yet? and Are We There Yet? Ice Cube (who started in gritty movies like Boyz N The Hood) seemed to be turning into the new Tim Allen a safe father figure that would be right at home in a Disney movie. Even though The Longshots is definitely PG it offers him an edgier role and a well-defined character to play for a change. Curtis Plummer is a lazy down and out ex-ballplayer whose passion for life and football have disappeared. Cube at the top of his game gets this guy and gives him three dimensions which makes his later scenes pay off all that much more. Perhaps it was having a real-life person to play that allowed Cube to stretch even in a rather formula vehicle such as this. The other key ingredient that makes Longshots work as well as it does is clearly Keke Palmer who made such a memorable debut in Akeelah and the Bee and confirms her promise as the feisty Jasmine. Together this twosome make The Longshots a pleasure to watch. Second feature by Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst is no embarrassment as he clearly is serious about his new directing career and brings out all the action and comedy running through Nick Santora and Doug Atchison’s script. Getting a first-rate performance from Ice Cube and a sterling turn from Palmer proves he knows what he’s doing with actors which is no small task. The game scenes are well-staged and the football stuff seems authentic even though this story of a girl quarterback would not seem that believable if it weren’t true. Still no sports movie cliché is left unturned in The Longshots--right from the title to the end credits--but for some reason it doesn’t seem to matter. There are generous doses of heart and soul on display here making The Longshots a winner for the whole family.
