Actress Susan Sarandon's apartment in Manhattan, New York was ransacked by a burglar over the weekend (02-03Aug14). A thief broke into the Thelma & Louise star's home and made off with a laptop, camera, jewellery and documents, according to the New York Post.
Sarandon's son Miles left the property around 8pm on Saturday and returned home the following morning (03Aug14) to find the apartment in a state of disarray. Sarandon is thought to have had $100,000 (£58,000) worth of jewels in her home.
The actress was out of town at the time of the raid.
Ne-Yo is taking his former manager to court amid accusations he conned the R&B star out of $4.5 million (£2.65 million). The Closer hitmaker claims Kevin Foster convinced the singer to allow his accounting company to look after his funds in 2005, but after recently hiring a new firm to oversee his financial affairs, Ne-Yo discovered his "trusted adviser" had been making a number of questionable transactions.
According to the lawsuit, filed in New York's Manhattan Federal Court this week (ends01Aug14), Foster reportedly made unauthorised transfers from his accounts and allegedly committed fraud by forging Ne-Yo's name on loan documents to invest money in a financially-strapped water company the defendant was president of.
Ne-Yo is demanding the return of $4.5 million (£2.65 million), in addition to the $3.5 million (£2 million) the star had paid Foster in fees over the years, reports the New York Daily News.

Music promoter Joe Isgro has pleaded not guilty to gambling, conspiracy and money laundering charges. Isgro, who helped Michael Jackson, Billy Joel and Elton John secure radio airplay in the 1980s, stands accused of running an illegal gambling operation for the mob, according to the New York Daily News.
Police claim Isgro and six others used banned gambling software owned by the infamous Gambino crime family to run the online operation from 2005.
On Wednesday (30Jul14), Isgro, who also served as an executive producer on the 1992 film Hoffa, appeared in Manhattan Criminal Court, where he entered his plea and posted $250,000 (£147,058) bond.
A New York conman who duped concert promoters out of millions by posing as a booking agent for artists such as Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga and Rihanna has been sentenced to prison. Meceo McEaddy, 39, pleaded guilty to 21 charges, including felony grand larceny and fraud, after he and his partner Sylvester Vincent Carroll were busted by authorities last summer (13) on suspicion of scamming more than $2 million (£1.18 million) from promoters around the world.
McEaddy was handed five to 10 years behind bars during his sentencing in a Manhattan court on Tuesday (30Jul14) and ordered to pay $550,750 (£323,971) in restitution to his victims.
Earlier this month (Jul14), his co-defendant Carroll, who had also pleaded guilty, was jailed for between three and nine years. In addition, he had to hand over funds amounting to more than $2 million in compensation.
Veteran R&B group New Edition's former managers are suing the singers for outstanding fees amounting to over $500,000 (£295,082). The founders of Benchmark Entertainment filed documents in Manhattan Supreme Court on Tuesday (29Jul14), alleging their former clients refused to pay up after firing them last month (Jun14), according to the New York Daily News.
Originally hired in 2012, Benchmark's founders Steven Greener, Kevin Gasser and John Hammond claim they masterminded a New Edition reunion tour, which is set to kick off later this year (14).
However, after band members Bobby Brown, Ronnie DeVoe, Johnny Gill, Ralph Tresvant, Ricky Bell and Michael Bivins cut ties with them, the Benchmark bosses claim the group refused to pay them for the work they did securing the upcoming tour.
The management company founders claim they are owed at least $500,000 for setting up radio interviews and photo shoots, organising merchandising deals, securing venues and hiring a publicist,.
Benchmark's founders have also served as managers for artists such as Will Smith, Erykah Badu, Green Day and Smashing Pumpkins.
The lawsuit is the latest blow for the band - Bobby Brown bowed out of an ongoing U.S. tour due to medical reasons earlier this month (Jun14).
The singer struggled to bounce back from "an intrusive medical procedure" and found himself exhausted and fatigued onstage. The 45 year old, who was placed under doctors' care, returned to the spotlight in Detroit, Michigan on Friday night (25Jul14) but still appeared to be struggling to keep up with his bandmates.
Reports suggest Brown had difficulty with the demanding choreography and frequently walked to the end of the stage to pause and break from dance routines.
New Edition's current tour wraps up in Los Angeles on 3 August (14).
A homeless man who broke into a U.S. TV studio wielding a knife has been sent for mental evaluation after an outburst in court. Andre Johnson was arrested for assault, criminal possession of a weapon, and menacing earlier this month (Jul14) after he gained access to the Good Morning America studio in New York City and allegedly threatened presenter Michael Strahan.
Johnson was indicted for felony attempted assault at Manhattan Supreme Court on Monday (28Jul14) but the proceedings were halted when Johnson launched into a tirade against his legal team.
He yelled, "I want a new lawyer! This lady's against me! She's part of the Illuminati!... There's a war against me, ma'am. Obama was elected to defend us. This is some bulls**t, man!"
According to the New York Daily News, the judge ordered a mental evaluation and Johnson is scheduled to return to court on 15 September (14).
Actress Dara Tomanovich was charged with driving while impaired in New York City earlier this month (Jul14). Tomanovich, best known for her role in 1996 comedy Bio-Dome, allegedly crashed her Porsche in Manhattan and was arrested after she failed two breathalyzer tests at the scene.
According to TMZ.com, Tomanovich was taken into custody and charged with driving while impaired. She was released without bail.
Police in New York City have arrested a homeless man on suspicion of stalking pop star Rihanna. Kevin Mcglynn was detained by cops on Thursday (24Jul14) and he was arraigned on charges of stalking, menacing, and harassment in Manhattan Criminal Court on Friday (25Jul14).
The 53 year old is accused of sending a batch of threatening messages to the Umbrella hitmaker, delivering many of them by hand to her apartment in the Big Apple.
Police officers tracked him down after he allegedly dropped his benefits card, which featured his name and last-known address, in the star's building.
Rihanna's lawyer told the court on Friday that Mcglynn's alleged behaviour caused the singer to "fear for her physical safety".
Mcglynn has been held without bail.
Former Fugees star Pras Michel revived his child support battle in New York City on Thursday (24Jul14) just weeks after he was scolded by a magistrate for skipping a previous hearing to reportedly attend the soccer World Cup in Brazil. The musician-turned-film producer hit headlines last month (Jun14) when he missed a court hearing in Manhattan because he was reportedly out of the country on a trip to the sporting event.
He was ordered back to court on Thursday, and the star showed up to face his former girlfriend Angela Severiano, who is seeking a raise in her child support payments.
During the hearing, Severiano told the court Michel's four-year-old son Landon is living in a cramped studio apartment while his father is away enjoying a life of luxury, according to the New York Post.
She is seeking more money from the star to cover school fees and a move to a larger home.
Michel is scheduled to testify in September (14).
