Tragic actor Robin Williams helped to make a New Zealand-based cancer patient's dreams come true by recording a video message for the dying woman shortly before his death. Friends of Vivian Waller, who is suffering from lung, bowel and liver cancer, reached out to the Good Will Hunting star after she made it clear she would like to meet the funnyman as one of her 'bucket list' desires, and shortly after learning about his sick fan, Williams sent her an viral video.
In the footage he said, "Hi Vivian, it's Robin Williams here saying, 'Hey girl, what's going on down there in New Zealand?' I'm sending all my love to you... Knock this off your bucket list. Much love to you, baby."
Waller was moved to a hospice care facility on the same day Williams passed away last week (begs11Aug14), but the young woman's husband has not yet discussed the actor's death with his wife.
He tells the Sunday Star Times, "Viv struggles with a lack of energy and it is quite difficult for her to concentrate. We are just enjoying the time we have together. We take things a day at a time.
"(We released the video because) we love him. We want to show people how awesome a person he was."
Veteran musician Wilko Johnson is plotting a return to hit TV show Game Of Thrones after he recovers from cancer surgery.
The former Dr. Feelgood star appeared in the fantasy show as executioner Ser Ilyn Payne and he was last seen on screen in 2011, two years before he was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer. Johnson defied doctors to continue working after his health news, and he is determined to bounce back after undergoing an operation in April (14) to remove a tumour from his pancreas.
His journalist friend Charles Shaar Murray has given an update on the star's condition, revealing he enjoyed an outing to the beach with a group of friends on Sunday (17Aug14) and is even eyeing a return to TV.
Murray writes in a post on Facebook.com, "Yesterday: a lovely Sunday afternoon by the seaside... to be precise, hanging out with Wilko Johnson and a bunch of his mates... Wilk's still in the comparatively early stages of recovery from his massive life-saving surgery, but he's in good spirits (though he's no longer drinking any), working hard to rebuild strength and stamina, itching to resume maltreating Telecasters (guitars) in public and even speculating on returning to Game of Thrones once Ser Ilyn Payne is no longer ill in pain and he's strong enough to wield the Big Sword once more. And he thanks all y'all for the good vibes."
The note was reposted on Johnson's own account with the message, "We just had to share this heartening update from the inimitable Charles Shaar Murray. As you can imagine, Wilko's still got a long way to go, but he's in good spirits and we must reiterate CSM's last line - he really does appreciate all the positive vibes."
Chris Brown has sparked rumours of a reconciliation with ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran after they were spotted embracing at a charity football game over the weekend (16-17Aug14). The couple was rumoured to have split last month (Jul14) following a three-year on/off love affair, with Tran recently describing the end of the relationship as "heartbreaking".
However, the pair was seen together at a sporting event in Glendale, California on Saturday (16Aug14) and they sparked rumours the romance is back on again after they were photographed laughing and cuddling.
In a recent interview, Tran revealed she struggled to deal with the pressure of dating the singer following his relationship with Rihanna, saying, "Not only am I fighting a battle with her, I'm fighting a battle with her 14 million fans. So imagine how that feels for me."
British singer Ella Eyre nearly missed her slot at Britain's V Festival over the weekend (16-17Aug14) after her tour bus was involved in a terrifying accident. The star was on her way to the second leg of the event in Chelmsford, England when a wheel on the bus came loose.
No one was injured in the accident, but Eyre and her crew were left stranded on the roadside until the early hours of the morning.
She tells British radio show In:Demand backstage at the festival, "The wheel fell off and we were moving. We're all fine but we were stuck in the bus until 4am... So we didn't think we were going to make it. My poor hairdresser was on the bus doing my hair like, 'Is this going to blow the fuse? Are we going to blow up?'"
Eyre nearly missed her set at the Isle of Wight Festival earlier in the summer (14) after she was caught up in travel chaos in Europe. Her flight from Poland was delayed and she made it to the U.K. event with just minutes to spare before her set.

Speaking to British radio show In:Demand at V Festival in the U.K., Smith voiced his hope that the video will pave the way for a collaboration, saying, "It was amazing, I love it. It's really weird because I'm a massive fan of his music. I love Chris Brown's music so much, yeah. I'd love to meet him so possibly, who knows? It would be cool to collaborate."

Actor Jamie Foxx partied with politicians on Saturday night (16Aug14) by inviting former presidential candidate John Mccain and New Jersey governor Chris Christie to join him onstage for a dance at a star-studded fundraiser. The Ray star was a guest at the annual Apollo in the Hamptons bash and he made an extra special effort to get the party swinging.
He took to the stage and invited Christie to join him for a dance, before Senator McCain got up to join in, swiftly followed by Sir Paul McCartney and director Spike Lee.
After the stunt, Foxx told New York Post gossip column Page Six, "Its always the ones you don't expect. Republicans love to dance - in the Hamptons."
Other guests at the event, organised by business magnate Ron Perelman, included Robert De Niro, Jack Nicholson, Barbra Streisand, Roger Waters, Anjelica Huston, and Don Johnson.
The audience enjoyed performances by Pharrell Williams, Sting, Gladys Knight, and Jon Bon Jovi at the fundraiser, which netted $4 million (£2.4 million) for development projects at New York's famous Apollo Theatre.
At the close of the evening, Nicholson told Page Six, "That was one hell of a night. Christie really held his own. I told him, as he walked back to his seat, 'Governor, you can't let New Jersey down.'"
A judge has issued an arrest warrant for Jovan Clayton after the rapper failed to turn himself in to begin a four-month jail sentence. The Rej3ctz star pleaded no contest to receiving stolen property stemming from an arrest in April (14) amid accusations he had taken more than $2,000 (£1,177) worth of alcohol and personal items from revellers at a Los Angeles nightclub.
Clayton was handed a 120-day prison sentence and three years probation, and he was ordered to surrender himself to authorities on Friday (15Aug14) to begin his stint behind bars.
The hip-hop star-turned-actor did not show up by the deadline, so a judge in California has now issued a bench warrant for his arrest, according to TMZ.com.
