Justin Bieber has been caught in the act of spitting just 10 days after a DJ accused the pop star of assaulting him with saliva in an Ohio club. Addison Ulhaq claims the Baby hitmaker spat at him during an altercation at the Social Room in Columbus on 12 July (13), and now Bieber has been spotted spitting from a hotel balcony in Toronto, Canada.
The snaps of the singer spitting were taken on Thursday (25Jul13) and obtained by TMZ.com.
The star was also accused of spitting at a Calabasas, California neighbour when he was confronted about speeding in their gated community back in March (13).
Meanwhile, Ulhaq, who tested negative for hepatitis after his run-in with the pop superstar, is planning to sue the singer over the incident.
Michael Jackson's wrongful death trial was halted on Wednesday (24Jul13) after a blogger was ejected from the Los Angeles courtroom for allegedly taking pictures of the jurors on his cell phone. William Wagener, who has been a regular spectator at the proceedings, was asked to leave the court after bailiffs spotted him breaking the rules and using his camera phone.
He was banned from returning to the courtroom for the rest of the day and lawmakers have yet to decide if he'll be allowed to return for the remainder of the case as the King of Pop's mother, Katherine Jackson, and his three children sue concert promoters at AEG Live over the superstar's death in 2009.
Wagener claims he took the photo by accident and has argued a permanent ban will impede his ability to report on the case.
The Jackson family is suing AEG Live amid allegations bosses ignored signs the superstar was suffering from poor health leading up to his ill-fated This Is It residency in London. They also claim company executives were negligent in hiring Dr. Conrad Murray to care for him
Executives at AEG Live maintain Jackson personally hired Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter relating to his client's death.
The case continues amid reports suggesting the King of Pop's ex-wife Debbie Rowe is set to testify.
A group of former American Idol contestants is suing show producers for discrimination. The 10 African-American singers - including Corey Clark, who alleged he briefly romanced then-judge Paula Abdul - claim they were forced out of the TV talent contest because of their race.
The plaintiffs have accused Idol bosses of conducting a "cruel and inhumane" scheme to exploit them for ratings by illegally digging up their arrest histories and using the records to humiliate them on national TV, according to TMZ.com.
Clark's fellow Idol Season Two wannabes Jaered Andrews and Jacob John Smalley and hopefuls Donnie Williams, Terrell and Derrell Brittenum and Chris Golightly have joined forces for the battle.
The group's legal team claims the show producers portrayed the singers as "violent criminals, liars and sexual deviants" when, in fact, none of them had ever even been convicted of the charges stemming from their arrests.
The singers are demanding upwards of $25 million (£16.6 million) each.
Scottish comedian Frankie Boyle has completed a week-long hunger strike in protest against the detention of a British man in Guantanamo Bay. The funnyman stopped eating last week (17Jul13) in a bid to highlight the case of Shaker Aamer, who is one of several inmates at the American military's controversial detention camp who have stopped eating to take a stand over their treatment.
Boyle took to his Twitter account in the early hours of Wednesday (24Jul13) to tell fans he had completed the challenge.
In a series of posts on his page, he writes, "Well you'll be pleased to hear that my hunger strike's over and I just broke my tooth on a chicken wing. Happy days. And f**k Guantanamo, an immoral and illegal torture camp, they should level it to the ground and give it back to Cuba. F**k it to hell."
After winning $75,000 (£50,000) in libel damages from a British newspaper last year (12), Boyle donated the amount to a U.K. charity which is helping Aamer sue Britain's Secret Intelligence Service.
A lawsuit filed against Chris Brown and his rap rival Drake after their notorious nightclub brawl last year (12) has been thrown out of court. The pair's entourages came to blows in New York City's W.i.P venue in June last year (12) after an argument allegedly erupted over Rihanna, who has dated both of the stars.
Following the altercation, bosses at Entertainment Enterprises, Ltd., who own a large stake in Greenhouse, a club located in the same building, filed a $16 million (£10 million) lawsuit against the pair, alleging their reputation was ruined by the media fallout.
However a judge has disagreed with their claims and ruled the stars have no duty to behave in the club, especially as they were not even in the nightspot when the fight broke out. The judge also insisted altercations in nightclubs are common, and bosses can't sue everytime one occurs.
Last year (12), Drake filed legal papers urging the case's presiding judge to toss out the suit, claiming the Greenhouse already had a bad reputation and its liquor licence was once suspended due to a "string of violent incidents".
The DJ who accused Justin Bieber of spitting in his face during a night out in Ohio last weekend (12-14Jul13) has filed a police report over the alleged incident. Addison Ulhaq was working at the Social Room in Columbus last Friday (12Jul13) when the Baby hitmaker's security guards allegedly asked him to stop taking pictures of the 19 year old partying in the 21-and-over club.
The DJ denied photographing the superstar, but it wasn't enough to stop the singer himself from reportedly confronting Ulhaq in the early hours of Saturday (13Jul13) and he claims trouble quickly ensued.
He has accused Bieber of insulting him before spitting in his face, hitting his eye, nose and mouth with saliva - although the star's representative promptly dismissed the story, stating: "(The alleged victim is) another person looking for a paycheck in the witch hunt which at this point is just out of control."
However, Ulhaq is refusing to drop his claims and has now turned to authorities to have the club clash noted on record.
The police report, obtained by TMZ.com, reads: "The victim stated that the suspect told him that 'His mother was a b**ch, his father was a b**ch and he is a b**ch.'"
It continues: "The victim stated that he does not want anything done at this time and just wants to document the incident."
It is not yet known if Ulhaq, who tested negative for hepatitis after the supposed incident, is planning to sue Bieber over the incident.
The singer, who has hit headlines for all the wrong reasons of late, is no stranger to spitting allegations - his Calabasas, California neighbour shared a similar story in March (13), when the pop star reportedly spat on him after he confronted the teen about speeding in their gated community.
Gleeks across the world are mourning the recent loss of Cory Monteith. Glee's shinning star died from a lethal mix of alcohol and heroin last weekend. Jane Lynch, who worked alongside Monteith on the hit Fox show since its 2009 premiere, remembered him Wednesday night while on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
After Leno commended Lynch for still showing up despite the passing of her co-star and friend, Lynch held back tears as she fondly remembered Monteith. The Annie actress praised Monteith's inspiring spirit, saying, "He was one of those guys that, you know, he knew he was breathing rarified air. The gifts… this wonderful show gave us. And he was one of those guys aware that it was a gift."
Although Monteith's life was cut short at the young age of 31, Lynch disclosed, "I don't think he left one day unloved." And then went on to say, "We've lost a really great guy."
Ever since Monteith first appeared on the musical comedy as an underdog who grappled with balancing football with glee club, fans were enchanted by the extremely talented actor. Jane Lynch, who plays the malicious Sue Sylvester on Glee, reveals that Monteith was an inspiration off the screen as well. Lynch shared how Monteith once flew across the country with his own money to visit a sick child whose last wish was to meet him. "He was just a real giver," Lynch adds.

Actress Jane Lynch fought back tears as she paid tribute to her tragic Glee co-star Cory Monteith during a U.S. TV interview on Wednesday (17Jul13). The 31-year-old's body was found in his hotel room in Canada on 13 July (13), less than three months after he completed a stint in rehab, and an autopsy has confirmed the star died after taking a deadly mix of heroin and alcohol.
Lynch, who plays cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester in the TV musical, has been hit hard by the tragedy and she became emotional as she shared her memories of Monteith on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, branding him a "really great guy".
With her voice breaking, Lynch told the host, "Cory's one of the biggest hearts, was a real bright light. He was one of those guys that... you know, he knew he was breathing rarefied air... the gifts that this wonderful show gave us.
"He was always aware that it was a gift and he was quite generous. He was one of those adventurous types... I always admired how he would get up... you know, he would fly to Mexico, he'd throw parties for his friends. I don't think he left one day unlived. He was a real bright light in our family and we've lost a really great guy."
When asked how she hopes Monteith will be remembered, Lynch added, "He once flew across the country on his own nickel to meet with a sick kid whose last wish was to meet him. That's the kind of guy he was. Just a real giver."
Monteith's remains were reportedly cremated on Tuesday (16Jul13) and his mother, brother and actress girlfriend Lea Michele said their farewells during a private ceremony.
While we were pumped to see Justin Timberlake's latest single hit Vevo only two days after the sexy singer teased its release, we did have an inkling that its name, "Take Back The Night" could cause a bit of mayhem.
When Timberlake initially announced the title of his single, we had difficulty fathoming what prompted JT to name his tune after Take Back the Night, an activist organization and annual protest against rape and other forms of sexual violence observed all across the country. And we were not alone in our state of confusion, it seems. The organization itself, Take Back The Night, may sue the singer for using its name. We totally saw this one coming!
Take Back the Night is now threatening to take the Sexy Back singer to court. According to Radar Online, Katherine Koestner, who serves as Executive Director for the foundation, shared, "Everyone at Take Back the Night is really shocked, because normally we get asked when people want to use the name."
Koestner went on to put Timberlake's ditty to shame, saying, "The lyrics are definitely very sexual and not at all clearly anti-sexual violence. 'Use me,' for example, is not a really great phrase for anyone affiliated with the organization."
Although we do really love Timberlake's catchy, club-banger tune, we still think of the well-known foundation every time we jam out to the track=. We hate to say it, Justin, but… we told you so!

British singer Kerry Katona feels "ashamed and embarrassed" about her latest bankruptcy bid, according to her fiance. The Atomic Kitten filed her petition at Wigan County Court in England on 2 July (13), five years after her last bankruptcy drama, when she was left unable to pay a $133,300 (£86,000) tax bill.
Katona took to Twitter.com to declare, "Hold your head high and be proud, never be ashamed!" - but her fiance George Kay reveals the singer is "struggling" to cope with her latest financial crisis.
In an interview with Britain's Sunday Mirror, he says, "What Kerry's going through has hit her hard and I'm there for her. Her mind is always racing - thinking about 101 things.
"She can step outside the house and be all bright and bubbly. She puts on a brave face to take the kids to school, and for work. But what people see and how Kerry actually is are two different things. She's struggling. I can tell she's depressed because she curls up on the couch and falls asleep in the afternoon - she's very lethargic at home.
"When I go to bed she stays up watching the telly (TV) to try to switch off from all her thoughts. She feels ashamed and embarrassed of being bankrupt again. She'll eventually come to bed but then she's up again in the middle of the night. Four hours is a good night for Kerry but, at the moment, we're lucky if she's getting two."
Katona's young children are also rallying to boost their mother's spirits, with Kay adding, "When Kerry told the kids she was bankrupt our Lilly-Sue (the star's daughter by ex-husband Brian McFadden) took out all the money she's ever saved and said: 'You can have my £100 mummy'. It was heartbreaking. We both cried about it. But I say, 'Everything's going to be alright. We'll get through it.'"
