Police have reportedly launched an investigation after a guitar was allegedly stolen from Constantine Maroulis' band during a charity event in New York. A bass is said to have been snatched from the musicians following Maroulis' performance at the Love Heals gala in New York's Hamptons on Saturday (19Jul14).
A source tells New York Post gossip column Page Six that police officers are attempting to track down the culprit using pictures taken at the event.
The insider says, "Some idiot stole the bass guitar from the band... The thief was no genius - he was photographed (at the event). The cops are confident he will be tracked down."
Guests at the event included socialite Nicky Hilton.
Pharrell Williams celebrated his 41st birthday in style with a Spongebob Squarepants themed party in New York City. The Happy hitmaker marked the milestone at Cipriani Wall Street on Saturday (05Apr14) alongside his wife Helen Lasichanh and showbiz pals Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, Russell Simmons, Chanel Iman and Nicky Hilton.
Rapper Q-Tip took on DJing duties at the party, which was decorated with images of the characters from the beloved kids' cartoon series.
A number of stars who couldn't make the bash tweeted Williams with birthday messages.
One Direction singer Liam Payne wrote, "Happy birthday Pharrell hope you have a great day look forward to getting back in the studio with you next time I'm in Cali."
Williams' Blurred Lines co-star Robin Thicke added, "Wishing @Pharrell a very #Happy birthday", and Justin Timberlake wrote, "Happy Bday to my brother, @Pharrell!!! Been killing the game forever! And, you still look younger than the rest of us."
A German man has been arrested on suspicion of drug possession outside Paris Hilton's Los Angeles home, a day after he turned up at the property and reportedly professed his love for the socialite. The overzealous fan is said to have arrived in the U.S. on Thursday night (06Feb14) and went straight to Hilton's mansion, where he pleaded with her security guards to grant him access.
He allegedly appeared "extremely drunk" and was told to leave, but he returned on Friday (07Feb14) to try his luck again.
Police were called to the scene and the man, whose identity has yet to be released, was busted for possession of cocaine.
According to TMZ.com, the male had tattoos of Hilton inked all over his body.
Hilton was not at home at the time of the incidents - she left L.A. on Thursday to attend New York Fashion Week with her sister Nicky.
The hotel heiress and reality TV star previously spoke of her stalker fear in 2011 after obsessed fan James Rainford attacked her then-boyfriend Cy Waits outside a Los Angeles courthouse and then violated a restraining order months later by showing up outside her Malibu estate.
Revealing she had spent a fortune on new security measures, she said, "It's scary because you don't know what sort of frame of mind these people are in... I have had to put a whole new security system in, I have to have armed guards on the beachfront and on the PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) to guard my house."
"Flight home was cancelled due to the (snow) storm... guess I'm stuck in Las Vegas a little longer." Paris Hilton's socialite sister Nicky is stranded in Las Vegas due to bad weather which has been affecting flights in the U.S.
Britney Spears thrilled the crowd at her Las Vegas show on Monday night (30Dec13) by performing with former 'N Sync star Lance Bass. The pop superstar kicked off her residency at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Sin City on Friday night (27Dec13), and introduced a section of the show during which a male audience member is plucked from the crowd to perform with the star on stage.
TV host Mario Lopez was the lucky guest during the first concert, and on Monday, Spears was surprised to find her longtime friend Bass had been picked for a turn on stage.
Bass, who worked with Spears' ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake in 'N Sync, was pictured grinning as the singer serenaded him and she later thanked him in a post on Twitter.com, writing, "Lance Bass So so good to see you!! Thank u (sic) for coming tonight," while the former boyband star added, "Thank you for dressing me up as a kitty and spanking me! It's like old times. Xoxo Love ya (sic)!"
Socialite Paris Hilton was also in the audience with her sister Nicky.
It's no surprise that celebrities are a little extra, especially considering that's probably what got them famous in the first place. With Twitter, however, celebrities are given another outlet to express their predisposition to be drama queens and kings. Whether it's the passive-aggressive bible-thumping of Carrie Underwood or the latest in celebrity-on-celebrity poseur mob hits, Twitter is the place to be to catch celebs acting out for attention in their real lives.
Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus. They will be in my prayers tonight... 1 Peter 2:1-25
— Carrie Underwood (@carrieunderwood) December 7, 2013
The country queen tweeted this in response to the negative response to her, ahem, acting in The Sound of Music Live! on NBC last Thursday. Thin-skinned much? Instead of siccing Jesus on everyone, Carrie, maybe you should ask him to hook you up with some acting skills in your prayers.

Who? Exactly. It really doesn't matter - all you need to know is that this person who is famous for some undoubtedly senseless reason is hooking up with Kris Jenner, yet trying to deny it with tweets like this.
Bad things happen when you hang out with bad people.

In what can only be called the most exciting event that 2006 never got to see, world-renowned criminal Lindsay Lohan apparently "masterminded" an attack on Barron Hilton. Barron posted a picture of his injuries on Instagram, with sister Paris commenting about retaliation, while other sister Nicky tweeted these words of wisdom. Question, though: Barron is Paris Hilton's little brother, so isn't he always around bad people?!

Oh, Brandi. What the hell are you complaining about now? No seriously - what is she talking about, because that grammar is atrocious.
#Almostnude - YOu ASKED FOR IT, YOU GOT it. Tryna work that body, tryin', tryin'. http://t.co/a3AekX0zmK
— James Franco (@JamesFrancoTV) December 6, 2013
Professional attention-seeker James Franco released this "almost nude" picture of himself on Instagram, because ART. Franco needs to learn a thing or two about "almost nude," though - until that towel drops and all he's wearing is a sock or two, this is just "topless." Whatta tease.
Rockers Steven Tyler and Lenny Kravitz treated attendees at an art bash in Miami, Florida to an impromptu performance of Aerosmith classic Walk This Way on Thursday night (05Dec13). Guests at the Wall venue included fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger and Paris and Nicky Hilton.
Actor Leonardo DiCaprio turned his star-studded birthday party into a charity fundraiser on Sunday (10Nov13) after recruiting rappers Kanye West and 2 Chainz to headline a special concert in his honour. The Titanic hunk hosted a private dinner at TAO Downtown in New York for 100 of his friends and family, including frequent collaborator Martin Scorsese and actors Tobey Maguire, Orlando Bloom and Benicio Del Toro.
The guests, among them designer Nicky Hilton, hip-hop star Busta Rhymes and New York Yankees baseball aces Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez, were then treated to a show by West, who performed hits such as Gold Digger and Good Life, while 2 Chainz serenaded the birthday boy with his own version of Happy Birthday.
The event, which also featured a charity auction, helped raise $3 million (£2 million) for environmental causes supported by the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.
The Hollywood star actually turned 39 on Monday (11Nov13).
Lady Gaga performed an intimate show to a crowd of famous guests at a fashion magazine party in New York City on Saturday night (07Sep13). The Poker Face star was the guest of honour at the V Magazine bash in Manhattan and she took to the stage to debut new material from her upcoming album ARTPOP.
Gaga stripped off to a tiny seashell bikini and sang for VIPs including James Franco, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Courtney Love at the bash, which was decorated with mannequins covered in the singer's V magazine picture spreads.
Hilton took to her Twitter.com page throughout the party, posting pictures of herself with her sister Nicky, as well as other guests, and writing, "Loving these photographs of @LadyGaga from her new @VMagazine photo spread. She looks absolutely stunning! GoldenGoddess Icon POPART".
Socialite Paris Hilton made her debut as a resident DJ in Ibiza on Wednesday night (31Jul13) when she played her first set for jubilant clubbers on the Spanish party island. The hotel heiress has been hired to perform a month-long residency at the Amnesia nightclub hosting the Foam & Diamonds party once a week.
Hilton kicked off her stint on Wednesday, and she documented her first night on her Twitter.com page.
She posted video footage and a number of pictures online, showing her behind the decks at the famous club, and Hilton told fans she conquered her nerves to make it a memorable night, writing, "What an incredible night at my Foam and Diamonds party at Amnesia Ibiza! Everyone was having the best time!...
"Tonight was one of the most fun & incredible nights of my life! Loved seeing everyone smiling & dancing to my set. Proud. Happy. Yes! Loves it (sic)... Best party ever tonight... Never seen it so packed & full of amazing energy! What a fun crowd! I love Ibiza!"
Hilton received a slew of positive reviews for her performance from fans on Twitter, while her socialite sister Nicky was among the partygoers who came to see the set.
