Former American football hero O.J. Simpson's luxury house is set to be repossessed on Tuesday (27Aug13). The disgraced sports star stopped paying the mortgage on the four-bedroom property in Kendall, Florida in 2010 and reportedly owes more than $892,283, (£573,064) in back payments.
A Miami-Dade County judge has ruled officials can take possession of the home, and it is due to be sold on an auction website in October (13).
The 66 year old lived at the house before he was convicted of armed robbery and kidnapping in Las Vegas in 2008.
He was sentenced to serve up to 33 years behind bars in October, 2008 but has since been granted parole, which is due to begin in October (13). However, Simpson will serve at least another 12 months in jail over his use of a weapon during the robbery.
Rocker Jack Russell and his former bandmates in Great White have reached a settlement in their ongoing legal spat over the group's name. The co-founding member and original frontman sued Mark Kendall, Michael Lardie and Audie Desbrow over their continuing use of the moniker after poor health forced him to take a hiatus from the group.
Russell claimed his bandmates kicked him out while he was recovering from surgery to repair a perforated bowel. The band countersued.
Now, after three days of mediation, the two parties have reached an agreement which will allow the members of Great White to continue performing and recording under the name, while Russell will perform as Jack Russell's Great White.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have bucked tradition in favor of a more unique *ahem* direction with the naming of their first born daughter. The power couple has settled on the name North West, a source has confirmed for People.
Rumors of the cartographic name first circulated in March, at which time we prophesied a future of nightclub promotion, Cape Cod summers, and a chain of successful travel agencies for the budding mogul. With a name that so invokes guidance, pioneering, and a great sense of direction, who knows where she could go?
But while wee North West's professional future may be bright, we can't help but worry about her personal well-being. Nope, I'm not concerned with peer-on-peer bullying — Lord knows Kanye won't stand for that tomfoolery — but rather ostracism within her own family. Kim, Kanye, Kris, Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall, Kylie — the Kardashians have never been shy about their fondness for the alphabet's 11th letter. And now here poor North is, K-less. She'll have to form a clique with Rob, Mason, and Penelope.
No word yet on whether the baby's middle name is Donda, for West's late mother, as previously hypothesized.

"I love Kylie and I love Kendall. They're just really good friends... We all just kind of hang out because we live in the same neighbourhood and they're really cool girls. I love hanging out with them. They're just friends." Will Smith's actor son Jaden plays down reports he's dating Kim Kardashian's half-sister Kylie Jenner.
Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love's daughter has sparked a feud with Kim Kardashian's half-sister after taking offence to a tweet the young model posted and later deleted on Tuesday (21May13). Frances Bean Cobain took aim at Kendall Jenner after reading a post, in which she stated, "Just wish things could be easier sometimes."
Eagle-eyed followers were stunned when the rock offspring responded, "Oh shh. There are kids on earth abandoned & homeless who forcibly drink contaminated water because clean water isn't accessible... Oh ya, not to mention, cancer, famine, poverty, draught (sic), disease, natural disasters, death."
She later added, "Humans are so self involved... I'd like to thank my parents for providing me with a high IQ & I'd like to thank my grams (grandmother) for encouraging me not to be a self absorbed idiot."
Cobain later toned down her remarks and deleted some of her tweets, but not before Jenner had seen them.
She fired back at 20-year-old Cobain on Thursday night (23May13), tweeting, "An individual's feelings are relative to their environment. You don't know me, you don't even know what I was referring to.
"I am aware that I am very privileged and blessed, and I'm thankful for that everyday. I know there are greater problems... in the world. I pray for those people every night and give back as much as I can. So who are you to judge me?"
Jenner later edited her response.
"A lot of girls like Sofia Richie or Kylie or Kendall (Jenner) or Ariana Grande, it's cool to hang out with them, but it is kinda like two magnifying glasses on us because it's two times the paparazzi." Teenage movie star Jaden Smith on the downside of living in the spotlight. He has been romantically linked to both Kim Kardashian's half-sisters.
Big Time Rush singer Kendall Schmidt has filed a complaint with airline bosses after $7,000 (£4,516)-worth of jewellery went missing from his luggage during a recent flight to Austria. The pop star had planned to hand out the custom-made items to fans at last Monday's (13May13) gig with his new band, Heffron Drive, in Vienna, Austria, but the bag failed to appear when he touched down in Europe from Orlando, Florida.
Schmidt was forced to go on an impromptu shopping trip to find clothes to wear for the concert and shared his lost luggage drama with fans attending the show that night.
He told the crowd, "On my way here they (airline staff) lost my suitcase. So I had a whole bunch of stuff in my suitcase I was gonna throw out, bracelets and stuff like that, all that kind of stuff."
Schmidt was eventually reunited with his bag on the group's next tour stop in Berlin, Germany - but the jewellery had gone missing from his suitcase, prompting the star to report the loss to airline executives in the hopes of landing a cash reimbursement, according to TMZ.com.
