Nicole Richie’s Second Child

Harlow (so cute!) And Nicole

Nicole and Harlow (so cute!)

Hollywood socialite Nicole Richie has given birth to her second child in Los Angeles.

Richie, 27, and musician partner Joel Madden welcomed a baby boy to join big sister Harlow, 20 months – and their newborn son continues the long-running Hollywood tradition of celebrity offspring being bestowed with offbeat names.

“In the middle of night, the very early hours of September 9, 2009, Sparrow James Midnight Madden was born to Nicole Richie and Joel Madden. He weighs 7 lbs. 14 oz. Nicole, Joel, Harlow and Sparrow are all doing well. Thank you for all of your good wishes,” a statement on Richie’s official website read.

She was jailed in Los Angeles while pregnant with her daughter Harlow after being charged with driving under the influence. Richie was sentenced to four days, but was released due to overcrowding after just 82 minutes.

Since the birth of her daughter in January 2008, Richie has stayed busy designing a jewellery line, House of Harlow 1960, and recently released a line of maternity fashion in conjunction with US clothing line A Pea in the Pod.

Richie and Madden, 30, have been a couple for two-and-a-half years.

Okay- two things- what does her being jailed have to do with this article? Are they trying to prove something here, like perhaps, she is not a good mother? Or are they just putting in the piece of information for the sake of spicing up something that isn’t scandalous enough for the sake of gossip? I’m not a fan of Nicole Richie or anything, but I think that is slightly unfair that they had to state that and even more wrong because they stated it so vaguely. And again- she was released ‘after just 82 minutes’- for the love of God the woman is pregnant! They make it sound like it was absolutely incredulous to let her go. I mean, they just said that she was pregnant and then they say that she was released due to overcrowding making it sound like it was because she threw a tantrum or something. I’m not saying she was right to be driving intoxicated while she was pregnant- she’s at fault there, definitely.
Is it me or is this article a bit ambiguous?
Leave a comment and let me know what you think about this in general, even if it is just to say how cute Harlow is!

Katherine Jackson to get custody

Michael Jackson’s mother has agreed a deal to get custody of his children.

Katherine Jackson – who became the temporary guardian of Prince Michael I, 12, Paris, 11, and seven-year-old Prince Michael II shortly after her son’s death last month – has reportedly reached an agreement with the eldest two children’s biological mother Debbie Rowe.

Katherine’s lawyer L. Londell McMillan told US TV programme ‘Early Show’: “It’s an agreement, an agreement for the best interests of the children. This is not a money deal. This is not about money.

“There is no situation better for these children than for them to be raised and reared in the loving care of Mrs. Katherine Jackson.”

It is believed Katherine will be given full custody, while Debbie will receive visitation rights.

Debbie will not be given any money, contrary to reports she was willing to accept a lump sump to give up her rights to the children.

The Los Angeles Times newspaper claims a child psychologist will be hired to discuss how, when and where Debbie’s visits should take place.

Various reports suggest Prince Michael I and Paris have had little or no contact with their mother since she divorced Michael in 1999, when she gave up her parental rights claiming he was the best father imaginable.

McMillan also responded to claims Michael did not want his father Joe Jackson – who Michael accused of physically abusing him when he was a child – to help raise his kids.

He said: “I don’t think it’s valid at all. I think Joe Jackson is the husband of Mrs. Jackson, but he’s not living in Los Angeles.”

McMillan also spoke about Michael’s 2002 will, in which he named lawyer John Branca and former music executive John McClain as the executors of his estate.

Katherine is arguing she should be kept abreast of any decision made relating to Michael’s estate, even though she was not named an executor.

Howard Weitzman, the lawyer for Branca and McClain, argues Katherine and her attorneys are trying to “re-write Michael’s will” so she can be more involved.

McMillan said: “He’s incorrect. Mrs. Jackson is not contesting the will. We are not trying to rewrite the will. Our concern is for anyone to have extraordinary powers, they need to have extraordinary trust and integrity.

“The question is what happened to this will in 2002? How come no one knew about it? How come Mrs. Jackson didn’t know about it? How come I didn’t know about it? How come we learned about it the day we filed a petition in court stating he died without a will?

“That estate is worth, in my estimation, a couple of billion dollars. You hear $500 million. Don’t buy it.”


Twilight Shocker…

Lefevre shocked over ‘Twilight’ dumping

By Yahoo!Xtra Entertainment

Summit Entertainment’s decision to replace Rachelle Lefevre in the upcoming Twilight movie, Eclipse, was a shock to actress herself as well as fans of the series.

Yesterday the company announced that redheaded actress Bryce Dallas Howard, daughter of director Ron Howard, would replace Lefevre as vampire Victoria in Eclipse, due to begin filming in Vancouver on August 17.

Summit blamed ‘scheduling conflicts’ for the decision to replace the 30-year-old Canadian with Howard, who last appeared on the big screen in Terminator: Salvation.

Lefevre has played Victoria through previous two instalments of the series – Twilight, released last year, and the upcoming New Moon.

The actress has a role in independent film Barney’s Version, co-starring Paul Giamatti, also due to begin filming on August 17 in Quebec, on the other side of Canada.

Rachelle Lefevre released this statement to the media today.

“I was stunned by Summit’s decision to recast the role of Victoria for Eclipse. I was fully committed to the Twilight saga, and to the portrayal of Victoria. I turned down several other film opportunities and, in accordance with my contractual rights, accepted only roles that would involve very short shooting schedules.

“My commitment to Barney’s Version is only 10 days. Summit picked up my option for Eclipse. Although the production schedule for Eclipse is over three months long, Summit said they had a conflict during those 10 days and would not accommodate me. Given the length of filming for Eclipse, never did I fathom I would lose the role over a 10-day overlap. I was happy with my contract with Summit and was fully prepared to continue to honour it. Summit chose simply to recast the part.

“I am greatly saddened that I will not get to complete my portrayal of Victoria for the Twilight audience. This is a story, a theatrical journey and a character that I truly love and about which I am very passionate. I will be forever grateful to the fan support and loyalty I’ve received since being cast for this role, and I am hurt deeply by Summit’s surprising decision to move on without me. I wish the cast and crew of Eclipse only the very best.”

Fans of the Twilight series have already taken their fight for Summit to retain Lefevre public online.

Ok, to be honest i’m not much of a Twilight fan anymore. That obsession died out ages ago. But i do think this is kind of sad. This article’s from Yahoo! so it’s believable. If she was backing out of this, then i think it would have been all gud but Summit Entertainment is just…cutting her out. That’s not nice. I’ve always thought there was something…cold about Summit. Although i think her little farewell statement is a bit overdoing it, i think it’s sad and rather stupid to cut her off like this. I mean, she was part of the reason Twilight rocketed last year. You can’t deny that; there are heaps of fans out there that would hate to see her leave. And if Summit takes her out, they might just lower the number of Twilight lovers. But maybe i’m jumping to conclusions here. No matter how trustworthy Yahoo! is, it’s still media and who can trust the media?

Snappy

Well…that’s my opinion. So what do you guys think? I assume there’s a lot (and i mean a LOT) of Twilight Fans out there. So don’t be shy to drop us a comment about what you think about this and come back to check out for more news!! Later.



Michael Jackson died with doll

Michael Jackson was cuddling a doll when he died.

A Los Angeles Police Department source has claimed the ‘King of Pop’ spent his last night snuggling up to the “child-sized porcelain doll”, which was wearing a dress.

Detectives reportedly found the “bizarre toy” on the bed where Michael collapsed into a coma last month.

The source claims the star was “living in squalor” in the months before he died, with clothes and other items strewn around his bedroom in his rented Holmby Hills mansion in Los Angeles, which was kept “stiflingly hot”.

There were strange notes, apparently handwritten by Michael himself, stuck onto the room’s walls bearing the words “children are sweet” and “children are innocent”.
The police officer said: “The temperature upstairs was stiflingly hot, with gas fireplaces and the heating system on high because Jackson always complained of feeling cold.

“The singer’s bedroom was a mess, with items seemingly thrown about and some 20 handwritten notes stuck on the walls. A porcelain girl doll wearing a dress was found on top of the covers of the bed where he slept.”

The officer also claims the singer’s staff were banned from entering his room to clean up the mess.

Meanwhile, the fight for Michael’s inheritance between his mother Katherine and the attorneys for the singer’s estate and concert promoter AEG Live has intensified.

After losing a bid to be named temporary administrator of her son’s estate, Katherine has demanded to see hundreds of financial documents, including contracts her son had with his record label, concert officials and even his father Joseph.

In papers filed at Los Angeles Superior Court, Katherine said: “The special administrators of Michael’s estate have, up to this point, refused all requests. They are apparently intent on keeping me in the dark as much and for as long as possible.”

Attorneys for AEG Live – the company promoting Michael’s comeback concerts in London – argued Katherine could not be granted access to the documents because she “would not uphold a confidentiality agreement”.

Papers filed by AEG Live said: “Without the safeguards necessary to ensure the continued confidentiality of the artist agreement and any proposed modifications, AEG cannot provide such information to Ms. Jackson or her counsel without risking serious harm to its business.”


Paris Jackson’s Gift To Daddy

I know that a lot of you are interested in the Michael Jackson thing so I found another article about it on Yahoo! Entertainment. 🙂

Michael Jackson’s grieving daughter wrapped a heart necklace around his wrist as his body lay in an open coffin.

Paris Jackson, 11, wanted to give the piece of jewellery to her late father when she visited him at Los Angeles’ Forest Lawn Cemetery last Monday (06.07.09) as she wanted to make sure he always had something to remind him of her.

Michael’s elder sister La Toya, who witnessed the heartbreaking act during the family’s private viewing, said: “Paris told me, ‘The heart is in two pieces. I want one half to go to daddy and I will wear the other half forever.’

“She carefully wrapped it around his wrist and said, ‘Daddy this is for you. On daddy, it will be blue because he is cold. On me, it’s purple. He’s so cold, he is so cold.’ ”

Paris bought the necklace – which changes colour according to temperature – after Michael died of a suspected cardiac arrest last month and she wore it when she made her emotional tribute to him at his memorial service last Tuesday (07.07.09).

Paris Jackson

As well as the jewellery, Paris also got some coloured stones to decorate her dad’s body with.

La Toya – who has claimed Michael was murdered by the “shadowy entourage” he surrounded himself – also recalled the moment she first saw Paris and her brothers, Prince Michael I and Prince Michael II, also known as ‘Blanket’, after the ‘Thriller’ singer’s death.

She said: “When I got to the hospital my mother was crying and the kids were crying. I screamed, ‘Is it true?’ and my mother said, ‘Yes, he’s gone.’ I couldn’t stop crying. I’m screaming and the kids are screaming. My mother was sitting there with all three of them on her lap, just crying.”

La Toya also revealed Michael was not the biological father of ‘Blanket’, revealing the youngster was conceived via artificial insemination.

She said: “Michael didn’t want to know who the biological parents were. They took eggs from a donor and I believe the sperm came from one of five donors picked from a book.

“I don’t know who carried the child or if the surrogate knew whose child she was carrying. Those children were his greatest joy. He was a superstar but the only people who loved him unconditionally were the children.”


Jackson’s ex says he’s not the father!!

Michael Jackson’s ex-wife Debbie Rowe has admitted that the singer is not the father of his two eldest children.

In an interview with British tabloid News of the World Rowe says she was artificially inseminated with the sperm of an anonymous donor to conceive son Prince Michael, 12, and daughter Paris Michael, 11.

Rowe, who worked as a nurse at the practice of Jackson’s dermatologist before marrying the singer in a surprise Sydney ceremony in 1996 – told the paper she does not want custody of the two children and expects not to see them again.

“I was just the vessel,” she told the paper in an interview which ran yesterday. “I got paid for it, and I’ve moved on.

“I know I will never see my children again.”

Since Michael Jackson’s death Debbie Rowe is no longer bound by the confidentiality agreement she signed with the singer after their marriage. Rowe, 50, received a multi-million dollar payout following the couple’s divorce in return for giving up all custodial claims to her son and daughter.

She now lives on a ranch in a remote part of California which she shares with 11 dogs and around 30 horses.

Rowe agreed to have children for the singer after his first wife, Lisa Marie Presley, refused to start a family with him.

“I went to the ‘office’, which is what we called the medical clinic. They impregnated me. It’s just like I impregnate my mares for breeding. It was very technical.

“Just like I stick the sperm up my horse, this is what they did to me. I was his thoroughbred.”

The end of the couple’s union came, Rowe claims, after the difficult birth of daughter Paris. In a previous interview Michael Jackson admitted taking a newborn Paris from the hospital where she was born just hours after her birth, with the placenta still attached to the baby.

“The delivery was so hard. My insides were all torn up and I was barren. When he knew I couldn’t have any more babies he didn’t want anything to do with me.”

The couple never consummated their marriage, with Rowe receiving a kiss on the cheek from Jackson on their wedding night.

“He wanted to pretend that we were a family. But we never lived together as a couple. We never had sex. He was on the road, doing his thing.

“He never wanted to live with me. That’s why he bought me a house. There was always ‘my house’ and ‘his house’, never ‘our house’.

“We would jump in bed together and read magazines and watch movies, with all the animals around us before the kids were involved. We used to hang out with each other.

“But that was his life. That’s Michael. That was what it was like.”

Despite reports, she says she will not fight for custody of the Prince and Paris. The children are expected to live with their paternal grandmother, Katherine Jackson, in Encino, Los Angeles. Jackson’s youngest son Prince Michael II, also known as ‘Blanket,’ was born to an anonymous surrogate mother in 2002.

“I was never a good mother, I never felt any attachment to them. It was a better feeling giving them to him than it was keeping them as my own. “I was never cut out to be a mother – I was no good. I don’t want these children in my life. My children are my animals now.”

Article from Yahoo! Entertainment
Her just saying that ‘ I don’t want these children in my life. My children are my animals now.’, i wonder if she even thought ONCE what effect that may have on the kids. I mean, whatever, but she doesn’t have to be such a cow about it. Quite honestly, i think she’s right in saying she isn’t ‘cut out to be a mother’ because God forbid anyone having a mother like that! I just think it’s so wrong, how could she be telling the press this? God has she no shame?!
