Kanye West is convinced he is under constant surveillance by camera drones which could drop out of the sky and injure his baby daughter.
The hip-hop superstar expressed his fears during a deposition as part of a legal battle with a photographer who is suing him over a scuffle at Los Angeles International Airport last year (13).
West, who was convicted of battery for attacking snapper Daniel Ramos, reveals he is convinced his every move is monitored by futuristic flying machines, and he fears his young daughter North West is in danger.
In the transcript of the deposition, obtained by TMZ.com, the star testifies, "Is your daughter stalked by like drones? Are there drones flying where she's trying to learn how to swim at age one?... Wouldn't you like to just teach your daughter how to swim without a drone flying? What happens if a drone falls right next to her? Would it electrocute her?... Could it fall and hit her?"
Marianne Faithfull has stirred up the mystery surrounding Jim Morrison's death in a revealing new magazine interview, insisting her ex-boyfriend supplied the drugs that cost The Doors legend his life. The singer/poet is alleged to have died of a heroin overdose in Paris, France in 1971, but as no autopsy was performed, the exact cause of his death is still disputed.
But now, in an explosive Mojo article, Faithfull has accused her ex-boyfriend, aristocrat Jean de Breiteuil, of supplying the drugs that killed Morrison.
She claims she knew something terrible was about to happen and chose to stay away from the apartment Morrison shared with his girlfriend Pamela Courson when de Breiteuil was planning a final visit.
Faithfull tells Mojo, "I could intuitively feel trouble. I thought, 'I'll take a few (sedative) Tuinal and I won't be there. And he went to see Jim Morrison and killed him."
But she insists the drug overdose was an accident: "The smack (heroin) was too strong? Yeah. And he died. And I didn't know anything about this. Anyway, everybody connected to the death of this poor guy is dead now. Except me."
Beyonce and Jay Z's joint summer tour has grossed more than $100 million (£59 million), despite reports of poor ticket sales. The hip-hop supercouple's On the Run Tour ends its U.S. leg on Wednesday (06Aug14) in San Francisco, California, and after nearly two months on the road, the trek as been labelled a success.
Vice president of North American touring for concert promoter Live Nation, Omar Al-Joulani, tells People magazine the gigs sold at more than 90 per cent capacity, insisting all parties involved with the trek are "winning".
The concerts rake in more than $5.2 million (£3 million) a night, and fill an average of 45,000 seats per performance.
Al-Joulani adds, "These events are driven by content and demand, and being dramatic and creative and putting out content people want to see. The two of them are as about creative as you can get, and it was pretty brilliant to watch them work. The show itself is spectacular.
"It was a very successful tour, and we're pleased to have that big gross number at the end."
Beyonce and Jay Z are set to take the On the Run Tour to Paris, France for the only international dates on 12 and 13 September (14). The shows will be filmed for an upcoming special on America's HBO network.

Sir Mick Jagger's jewellery designer daughter Jade Jagger has been conned out of more than $51,000 (£30,000) worth of gems by a celebrity stylist. Jagger loaned the valuables to Charles Adesanya, who told the socialite the jewellery would be used for a model to wear in a shoot for a women's publication and then returned to her.
Instead, Adesanya pawned the items - along with more gems fleeced from other jewellers - to pay off his debts.
When Jagger contacted Adesanya about the return of the items, he lied to her that they had been mistakenly couriered to Paris, France.
Only half of Adesanya's total haul, worth around $720,000 (£423,529), has been recovered.
Adesanya admitted fraud and theft between August, 2012 and May, 2013 during a hearing at London's Southwark Crown Court on Monday (28Jul14) and was jailed for four years and two months.
Actor Jamie Foxx is set to portray boxing legend Mike Tyson in a movie biopic after five years of preparation for the role.
The Django Unchained star spoke of his desire to step into the ring as the former world heavyweight champ as far back as 2009, and now Tyson has revealed the project is up and running and he hopes cameras will begin rolling by the end of 2015.
He is also hoping producers will use the latest computer technology to help Foxx appear the correct age as he portrays the fighter at various stages of his 58-bout career, and he will even serve as the actor's personal trainer to help him achieve the correct level of fitness.
Tyson says, "Me and Jamie Foxx are in discussion, and we gonna do it (sic). Within a year to 18 months, we're going to do the Mike Tyson story and he's going to portray me, and now they have this new animation; because you know Jamie's pretty much my age so he can't portray me but they have this new system."
In 2005, Foxx won a Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of blues musician Ray Charles in movie biopic Ray.

The venue is soon to be vacated by Tupac Shakur musical Holler If Ya Hear Me, which closes on Sunday (20Jul14).
An American in Paris, directed and choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon, will appropriately have its world premiere at the French capital's Theatre du Chatelet this December (14) for a limited run.

Dance music superstar David Guetta is still fighting over the division of assets with his ex-wife Cathy, four months after their divorce was finalised. The couple's 24-year marriage was officially declared over in a Paris, France court in March (14), but it appears the pair has yet to reach an agreement over how to split its shared business interests.
A source tells the New York Post's Page Six column, "Cathy owns all of the business names, and the music (rights), (including) their 'F**k Me I'm Famous' brand (of dance parties and popular compilation albums).
"Even though (their divorce) is finalized, things are not good."
The report suggests Guetta will lose half of his $30 million (£17.65 million) fortune to his ex as she was key in helping him establish himself as a top producer/DJ over the years.
Another insider adds, "He's the rock star, but she's the business mogul."
