Actress Eva Longoria has revealed her iPhone was hacked by an Apple employee after she visited one of the company's stores in her native Texas in a bid to fix a technical issue.
Longoria was not among the many female stars who woke up on Sunday (31Aug14) to find their privacy had been violated by a hacker who leaked celebrity nudes online, but she admits she has been a victim in the past. The former Desperate Housewives star tells Access Hollywood Live she discovered she had an unwelcome new email contact after a visit to an Apple Store in San Antonio, revealing a staff member offered to send her a dress she had made.
Longoria says, "(She wrote), 'I work at the Apple Store here in San Antonio'." The stunned star immediately attempted to track down the employee and find out how the security breach had occurred, asking store bosses, "Did someone give out my email? Or my phone?"
The actress claims the individual who allegedly hacked into her account and got in touch eventually responded and told Longoria, "I saw your phone number from your profile, I just wanted to call and say hi, I'm a fan."
Apple bosses launched an investigation following Sunday's security breach and assured customers it was "a very targeted attack" and not an issue with their iCloud servers, as previously indicated. A statement read: "After 40 hours of investigation, we have discovered that certain celebrity accounts were compromised by a very targeted attack on user names, passwords and security questions, a practice that has become all too common on the Internet."
Jennifer Lawrence, Victoria Justice and Kate Upton's representatives have threatened to take legal action against the culprit behind the nude photo leak.
Iggy Azalea's huge chart-topper Fancy has been named the Song of the Summer by Billboard magazine.
The track, which features vocals by Charli XCX, topped America's Billboard Hot 100 chart seven consecutive weeks over the summer (14), and it has now topped the magazine's list of most popular tracks. Azalea scored a double in the countdown as Problem, her collaboration with Ariana Grande, took third place behind Rude by MAGIC! at two.
Last year's (13) Song of the Summer was Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke.
The bridal gown Princess Diana wore when she wed Britain's Prince Charles in 1981 is set to be handed over to the couple's sons William and Harry, 17 years after her tragic death. Diana stipulated in her will that the silk and taffeta lace dress, designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel, should be given to her boys once her youngest, Prince Harry, turns 30. He will reach the age milestone on 15 September (14).
The iconic outfit, which featured 10,000 pearls and boasted a 25-foot (7.62-metre) train, has been in the possession of the late princess' brother, Charles Spencer, since Diana lost her life in a car crash in Paris, France in 1997.
He previously used it as the centrepiece of the Spencer family museum at Althorp in Northamptonshire, England, where it remained on display for over 10 years from 1998.
It is not yet known what Princes William and Harry plan to do with the dress.
Justin Bieber has been charged with dangerous driving and assault following an altercation in his native Ontario, Canada on Friday (29Aug14).
Reports suggest the pop star was riding an all-terrain vehicle when it was involved in a collision with a minivan and that led to a fight. A spokesperson for Ontario Provincial Police tells the Associated Press Bieber was released on a promise to appear in court on 29 September (14).
Bieber's latest legal woe could land him back behind bars - Los Angeles County Probation Department officials have since launched an investigation into the weekend arrest to determine if it violates his probation from his misdemeanour vandalism case, relating to an egging attack on a California neighbour's home. That case was settled in July (14), when he was sentenced to five days of community service, 12 weeks of anger management counselling, and two years of probation. Probation bosses have 30 days to lodge any alleged violation in court, reports TMZ.com.
The singer also pleaded guilty to misdemeanour charges of careless driving and resisting arrest last month (Aug14), seven months after he was booked in Miami Beach, Florida.
He is also facing legal action after allegedly assaulting a limousine driver in Toronto, Canada in December (13).
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have reunited in Malta a week after their secret wedding in France.
The couple exchanged vows at their estate in France on 23 August (14) and subsequently parted ways as Jolie jetted to Malta to begin work on the couple's new film By The Sea. The newlyweds have spent the week after their wedding apart, but they were reunited on Monday (01Sep14) when Pitt jetted in to the country.
Pictures show the actor arriving at a local airport before being whisked away in a car. He is expected to start work with Jolie on the film this week (beg01Sep14) instead of jetting off for a traditional honeymoon. Jolie has written the script and will direct the movie.
Newlywed Angelina Jolie has debuted photos of her surprise nuptials to Brad Pitt, revealing she wore a designer wedding gown featuring artwork by their six children. The Hollywood couple tied the knot during an intimate, secret ceremony at its Chateau Miraval estate in Correns, France on 23 August (14), and made the event a family affair.
In the first images of the ceremony, released to America's People magazine, the Tomb Raider beauty is shown wearing a flowing Atelier Versace wedding gown, designed by the brand's master tailor Luigi Massi.
And Massi helped created a special accessory for Jolie, as her veil was covered with colourful drawings by their kids Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Vivienne and Knox.
Gushing about Massi's work to the publication, she says, "Luigi is like family to me and I couldn't imagine anyone else making this dress. He knows and cares for the children and it was great fun putting it together."
As for Pitt, he decided to wear a suit from his closet, complete with a tie borrowed from one of his sons, since the actor forgot to pack his own.
The kids were also involved in the ceremony, with Maddox and Pax walking Jolie down the aisle, Shiloh and Knox serving as ring bearers, and Zahara and Vivienne playing the roles of flower girls.
Jolie and Pitt add, "It was important to us that the day was relaxed and full of laughter. It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family."
Another picture features the entire Jolie-Pitt clan sitting on steps at the estate as they pose in the formal wear for a family portrait, while a photo published in Hello! Magazine shows the couple's first kiss, as the two happily lock lips after exchanging vows.
Jolie and Pitt began dating in 2005 after meeting on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith and became engaged in 2012.
It is Pitt's second marriage following his divorce from actress Jennifer Aniston in 2005. Jolie was previously wed to actors Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton.
Angelina Jolie has issued her first statement as a newly-married woman - but it has nothing to do with her nuptials. The actress and activist has made the most of the interest in her following her top secret wedding in France a week ago (23Aug14) by shining the spotlight on the plight of refugees fleeing the civil war in Syria.
As fans waited for word from Jolie or Brad Pitt about their wedding ceremony, the Wanted star, who is also special envoy to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, used the interest to raise awareness.
In a statement released on Friday (29Aug14), she wrote, "Three million refugees is not just another statistic. It is a searing indictment of our collective failure to end the war in Syria.
"International stability is steadily bleeding away in Syria. UN Security Council Resolutions are being ignored; war crimes are being committed on a daily basis; regional countries are staggering under the human burden; and Syrian refugees are dying in the Mediterranean sea, trying to reach Europe.
"We need to see a new attempt to resolve the conflict and greater efforts to support more than 13 million Syrians who are in desperate need. The reputation and credibility of the international system is at stake with so many thousands of lives threatened in Syria."
Newlywed Angelina Jolie has kickstarted her Maltese honeymoon early without new husband Brad Pitt. The couple wed in secret in France last weekend (23Aug14) and now the blushing bride has jetted off to Gozo to prepare for the couple's upcoming working honeymoon.
Pitt and Jolie will play a married couple who become sexually obsessed with their neighbours in new film By The Sea, which Jolie has written, and the movie will be shot on location in Malta and Gozo.
Jolie was photographed wearing her new wedding band as she arrived for pre-production on the project on Wednesday (27Aug14) and Pitt is expected to join her this weekend (30-31Aug14).
A local source claims Jolie took a helicopter tour of the three main Maltese islands and then dined at top restaurant Ta' Frenc, where she and Pitt previously enjoyed a romantic dinner during a trip to the islands.
The actress will also direct herself and Pitt in the film.
Actress Katie Holmes is breathing a sigh of relief after her daughter Suri Cruise's lost dog was found alive and well.
Chihuahua Honey went missing during a visit to a friend's house in Benedict Canyon, near Beverly Hills, California last weekend (23-24Aug14), just weeks after Holmes adopted her.
The worried Batman Begins star plastered posters around the neighbourhood alerting locals to the dog's disappearance and even offered up a $1,000 (£588) reward for the pet's safe return, but the search was called off on Wednesday (27Aug14) after officials at the Lucky Puppy Rescue organization located the pooch not far from where she disappeared.
Suri's furry friend was subsequently checked out by a vet and given the all-clear to return home, reports TMZ.com. Suri, eight, is Holmes' daughter from her marriage to Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise.
Britney Spears has confirmed reports her romance with David Lucado is over.
The couple has been dating for 18 months but the love affair has officially come to an end.
After online bloggers suggested a video of Lucado with another girl is being shopped around news outlets, Spears took to her Twitter.com account on Thursday (28Aug14) and wrote, "Ahhhh the single life!" Spears' publicist also confirmed the split to Billboard.com and said, "Yes, she's single."
The news of their breakup comes days after Spears invited Lucado on stage during her Las Vegas Britney: Piece of Me show on Saturday (23Aug14). During the sexy performance, he had a leash tied around his neck and was led around on all fours by Spears.
Lucado and Spears started dating in March 2013, shortly after the singer called off her engagement to former manager Jason Trawick.
