Two of Glen Campbell's children are launching a legal battle against the ailing country star's wife, Kim. The Rhinestone Cowboy singer, who resides in a full-time care facility as he battles Alzheimer's disease, is allegedly "secluded from the rest of the family" at Kim's hands.
His eldest children, Debby Campbell-Cloyd and Travis Campbell, have lodged a petition at a court in Nashville, Tennessee, accusing the singer's wife of prohibiting them "from participating in his care and/or treatment".
They are urging a judge to appoint conservators and a guardian to protect their father's medical and financial interests.
Campbell-Cloyd has previously protested against Kim's decision to move her father to the facility, to which Kim responded, "It is crushingly sad to see him afflicted with Alzheimer's but indulging those feelings does not help him. I am his wife and no one wants him home more than me but I must do what is in his best interest."
The singer has been married to Kim since 1982 and shares three of his eight children with her. Campbell-Cloyd is from his first marriage to Diane Kirk, and Travis Campbell is from his second union, with Billie Jean Nunley.
Actress/comedienne Tracey Ullman is set to return to British TV screens after departing England for the U.S. 30 years ago. The Tale of Despereaux star first found fame on U.K. television in the 1980s in shows including A Kick up the Eighties and Three of a Kind before she relocated to America to launch multi-award winning programme The Tracey Ullman Show on U.S. network Fox.
Now the self-titled show has been recommissioned by the BBC for a six-part series.
She tells BBC, "It's a privilege to be doing this... The BBC has changed a bit since the last time I worked here, when it was all men in bow ties who had completed National Service.
"Now there are a lot more women. Great ones. The important things haven't changed, though. The BBC still provides an environment that allows you to the freedom to create the best shows possible."
Shane Allen, BBC controller of comedy commissioning, adds, "It's about time the Americans gave her back. Tracey has been the missing gem in the British comedy crown for too long. Talent doesn't come much bigger and the BBC audience is in for a huge treat."
Bruce Willis is poised to make his Broadway debut in the stage adaptation of Stephen King's acclaimed novel Misery. The Die Hard star will take on the role of bedridden writer Paul Sheldon, the role James Caan portrayed in the acclaimed 1990 movie version of King's book.
House of Cards actress Elizabeth Marvel will play his crazed captor Annie Wilkes, the part that earned Kathy Bates an Oscar for Best Actress.
Academy Award winner William Goldman, who wrote the screenplay for the film adaptation of the 1987 thriller, has also penned the script for the play.
Oscar-nominated costume designer Patricia Norris has died, aged 83. Norris, who frequently worked with directors David Lynch and Mel Brooks, passed away on 20 February (15).
She earned six Academy Award nominations for Best Costume Design throughout her storied career, including nods for films Sunset, 2010, Victor, Victoria, Lynch's The Elephant Man, Days of Heaven, and last year's (14) 12 Years a Slave.
Under Lynch, Norris served as both a production and costume designer, on films including Wild At Heart and Lost Highway. She also earned an Outstanding Costume Design Emmy award for the pilot of Lynch's cult TV drama, Twin Peaks.
Norris collaborated with veteran entertainer Brooks on three of his films, including Silent Movie, High Anxiety and History of the World: Part I.
Her other credits include Scarface, The Candidate, Killing Them Softly, The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford and The Singing Detective.
Norris was feted with a lifetime achievement award from the Costume Designers Guild in 2007 and the Art Directors Guild in 2011, making her the only person to receive the top honour from both organisations.
Ever super famous actors can be embarrassed by their mothers. Last night on The Tonight Show, Ansel Elgort told the best story we've ever heard about what his mother did at the 2015 Oscars.
Ansel, star of 2014's mega-hit The Fault In Our Stars, stopped by Jimmy Fallon's show to promote his new film, Insurgent (sequel to last year's Divergent), which comes out later this month. But what was more interesting was the story he told from his trip to the Oscars 2 weeks ago. Being the total sweetie that he is, Ansel brought his mother as his guest to the event. After the ceremony was over, there were parties to attend, which is the perfect setting for a mom to be such a Mom. Cue hilariously embarrassing moment.
Watch Ansel tell the hysterical story:
"Mom, you're embarrassing me!" We're actually crying real tears right now, it's that funny. Only a mom could be so oblivious, yet so proud of their child at the same time. Kudos Mama Elgort, we love you!

Actress Margot Robbie has mixed emotions about her thieving abilities now she's an expert pickpocket - because she felt awful taking a pair of cashmere pants from behind the scenes at The Wolf Of Wall Street. The Australian star studied slight of hand for her role in new movie Focus and admits she could become a professional pickpocket - if she didn't feel so bad about taking what she doesn't think belongs to her.
She jokes to Aussie radio host Kent 'Smallzy' Small, "I'm gonna quit the whole acting thing and survive on stolen watches and cell phones from now on. We were taught by a pickpocket... one of the best.
"But I did take a pair of cashmere track pants from Wolf of Wall Street and I felt really naughty about it."
And co-star Will Smith also felt the buzz and guilt of stealing when he swiped a packet of gum at a convenience store.
The actor celebrated his quick-fingered skills outside but had to take the gum back.
Chris Brown's on/off girlfriend Karrueche Tran has wished the R&B hitmaker the "best of luck" after ending the couple's romance following reports suggesting he secretly fathered a baby girl last year (14). The Kiss Kiss hitmaker has yet to address rumours he is the dad of a nine-month-old daughter, who was born to a 31-year-old model friend named Nia, but Tran appears to have confirmed the news by tweeting goodbye to the singer on Wednesday (04Mar15).
In her farewell post, she writes, "Listen. One can only take so much. The best of luck to Chris and his family. No baby drama for me."
Nia and Brown have reportedly been friends for years and sources insist the pair is on good terms following the child's birth.
The baby's mother is also no stranger to Tran - editors at TMZ.com have since obtained a photo of Tran posing with her arm around Nia at a party in Las Vegas in May, 2013, months before the model fell pregnant.
Brown and Tran have been romantically involved since 2011 and have previously overcome a brief love triangle with the singer's ex Rihanna. They have also had to contend with his multiple legal woes, including probation violations which temporarily landed him behind bars last year (14).
Oscars presenter Ansel Elgort was secretly betting against the technicians behind Guardians Of The Galaxy winning the Best Visual Effects Academy Award last month (Feb15) because he feared he would "pull a Travolta" and mispronounce their names. The Fault In Our Stars actor helped to announce the winner of the technical prize at Hollywood's big night, but he admits he was working up a sweat fretting about who would claim the title because there was only one group of film editors' names he could actually figure out how to pronounce.
Elgort feared messing up the names would get him banned from future ceremonies and turn him into a laughing stock, like John Travolta, who infamously introduced Broadway singer/actress Idina Menzel as 'Adele Dazeem', at the awards show in 2014.
The 20 year old says, "I was actually most nervous because I had to present Best Visual Effects and the people who make visual effects are really good at their jobs, but they have really hard names to pronounce for some reason...
"I didn't know who was gonna win, obviously, and whoever wins, it's four names per winner... I looked at all the people who could've won and I said, 'OK, I really hope Guardians of the Galaxy doesn't win' - no offence - because it's all the four names I couldn't pronounce! I didn't wanna pull a Travolta; it's my first time at the Oscars, I'll never be invited back...!"
Elgort's nerves were put at ease once he opened the golden envelope and discovered Guardians of the Galaxy's Stephane Ceretti, Nicolas Aithadi, Jonathan Fawkner and Paul Corbould had lost out to the guys behind Interstellar - Paul J. Franklin, Andrew Lockley, Ian Hunter and Scott R. Fisher.
He adds, "I've never been so happy that someone won an Oscar. I was like, 'Guys, your work is great and your names are even better!'"
Finely crafted, well thought out, always humble…are phrases that would never be used to describe the things Kanye West says in public. Whether it’s interrupting Taylor Swift’s VMA speech, gushing over wife Kim Kardashian, or – his favorite – bragging about himself, Kanye is the wordsmith of crazy. But one thing’s for certain: When he speaks, he always gets attention. So maybe he’s a genius after all? You be the judge. Here are some of his most ridiculous quotes, taken from various interviews and appearances.
"I’m a creative genius and there’s no other way to word it.”
"When I think of competition it's like I try to create against the past. I think about Michelangelo and Picasso, you know, the pyramids."
“I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period. By a long jump. I honestly feel that because Steve has passed, you know, it’s like when Biggie passed and Jay-Z was allowed to become Jay-Z.”
“There’s no way a Kim Kardashian shouldn’t have a star on the Walk of Fame.”
"Come on now! How could you be me and want to be someone else?"
“Sometimes people write novels and they just be so wordy and so self-absorbed. I am not a fan of books. I would never want a book’s autograph.”
“When Beyoncé was working on her album, she had pictures of Kim on the wall because Kim represents powerful women.”
Somehow we doubt this.
"All barber shops, fashion designers, architects, corner stores, Wall Street, all over the world: Y'all acting like this ain't the most beautiful woman of all time! I'm talkin', like, arguably of human existence — the top 10 of human existence."
“God chose me. He made a path for me. I am God’s vessel. But my greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform.”
“Like, I’m just giving up my body on the stage; I’m putting my life at risk, literally!”
"So, the voices in my head told me go, and then I just walked up, like, halfway up the stage... But I just didn’t really want to take away from Beck’s moment, or the time he’s having to talk. It was kind of a joke – like the Grammys themselves."
At least he admits he hears voices.
"I hate when I'm on a flight and I wake up with a water bottle next to me like oh great now I gotta be responsible for this water bottle."
This man has a child now...
"I don't even listen to rap. My apartment is too nice to listen to rap in."
"I'm a pop enigma. I live and breathe every element in life. I rock a bespoke suit and I go to Harold's for fried chicken. It's all these things at once, because, as a taste maker, I find the best of everything."
"I will be the leader of a company that ends up being worth billions of dollars, because I got the answers. I understand culture. I am the nucleus."
