Beyonce’s Dad may have stole from singer

Beyonce’s firing of her dad as her manager is now believed to be the result of him stealing money from her.

According to legal papers obtained by TMZ, Mathew Knowles is claiming that Live Nation Entertainment made false claims about him to his daughter in the hopes of coming aboard her 2011 world tour.

“I’ve only parted ways with my father on a business level. He is my father for life, and I love my dad dearly. I am grateful for everything he has taught me,” Beyonce said in a statement on the termination in March.

“I grew up watching both he and my mother [Tina Knowles] manage and own their own businesses. They were hard-working entrepreneurs and I will continue to follow in their footsteps,” she added.

While Mr. Knowles denies claims that he stole any money, Beyonce’s law firm conducted an audit that concluded that Knowles had in fact stolen money.

Mr. Knowles has asked a judge to take depositions from Live Nation employees to determine how they arrived at their conclusions.

Beyonce’s most recent album, “4”, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts.

“Harry Potter” star Emma Watson admits to being drunk once in her life

While “Harry Potter” star Daniel Radcliffe has claimed he no longer drinks, his co-star Emma Watson says she’s only been “very, very drunk” once in her life.

The 22-year-old British actress, who appeared on “The Late Show with David Letterman” on Monday in New York City, said she got drunk in England after she turned 18.

“Yes I have tried spirits, we drink at 18 in the U.K. but I’m actually legal to drink here now, it’s worth mentioning. I’m 21,” she said. “Yes, yes I have. I got very, very drunk once in my life as everyone does. Fine, I got drunk, I have been drunk – and I’ll bow to that!”

When Letterman asked if she had ever peed on the subway, Watson replied that it has never gotten to that point.

“Thankfully it’s never been that bad,” she said.

But when the late show host asked if she knew about Radcliffe’s drinking on the set of the “Harry Potter” films, Watson replied: “To be honest, it’s rarely not something that I genially know much about. He ‘s the one to talk about it. But as far as I know, he never took a sick day. He was like the most professional, amazing guy.”

Earlier this month, Radcliffe revealed to GQ magazine that his drinking became an issue on the set of 2009’s “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.” Lucky for him, he said the paparazzi were not around.

“I really got away with that because there were many instances when a paparazzi shot like that could have been taken,” he said. “I became so reliant on alcohol to enjoy stuff.”

The actor, who stars in Broadway’s “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” said drinking was an attempt to cope with his early success.

“There were a few years there when I was just so enamored with the idea of living some sort of famous person’s lifestyle that really isn’t suited to me.”

Radcliffe said he’s been sober for almost a year and prefers to be home than attending movie premieres and parties.

“As much as I would love to be a person that goes to parties and has a couple of drinks and has a nice time, that doesn’t work for me,” he said. “I’d just rather sit at home and read, or go out to dinner with someone, or talk to someone I love, or talk to somebody that makes me laugh.”

Radcliffe and Watson star in the final installment of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” which opens in theatres on July 15.

Katie Holmes says she is under no pressure to have another baby.

In the August issue of InStyle magazine, the 32-year-old actress, who has a five-year-old daughter, Suri, with husband, actor Tom Cruise, said her biggest concern right now is taking care of her daughter.

“I don’t feel pressure to do that. We already have a very big family: a full household with cousins who are over a lot, and she has her friends,” she said. “My biggest thing is making sure she’s fully taken care of and doing well.”

Holmes, who is currently filming “Jack and Jill” with Adam Sandler in Cancun, Mexico, is also stepmother to Cruise’s adopted children, Isabella, 18, and 15-year-old Connor from his marriage to actress Nicole Kidman.

The “Batman Begins” star said she has a lot of hope for Suri’s future.

“I think she’s going to do a lot of different things. She’s an amazing athlete, singer, and dancer, and I think she’ll probably be an actress.”

While she loves being a jet-setting mother, who recently traveled to Miami Beach to celebrate her husband’s 49th birthday, she admitted that it isn’t always glamorous.

“I’ve been thrown up on many times, right in the face.”

Rapper Pitbull says he was influenced by 80′s rock bands.

The Miami native, whose current hit “Give Me Everything” has sold over two million copies and is number one on Billboards Hot 100 chart, recently told The Boombox in Hollywood, Calif. that he learned a lot by watching Guns “N Roses and Poison.

“Definitely as part of growing up in the ’80s, I seen a lot of the rock bands and the rock shows, whether it was the big hair spray, Def Leppard and Poison, you had the U2, they didn’t have the hair like that. I think they were the ones really living it up, Guns ‘N’ Roses, so yeah, you seen a lot of that.”

While the 30-year-old rapper, whose real name is Armando Chrisitian Perez, considers himself a rock star, don’t expect to catch him doing “rock star-type things.”

“Rock stars could get away with a lot before. There wasn’t a Twitter or Facebook, it wasn’t as real time as it is now,” he explained. “Catch one of your rock stars messing up a hotel room or pissing from a balcony or whatever they used to do and watch how quick that hits the world.”

Pitbull also said collaborating with Marc Anthony, Chris Brown T-Pain, Ne-Yo, Kelly Rowland and Sean Paul on his sixth studio album “Planet Pit” wasn’t something that was planned.

“As far as the collaborations on the album, I wasn’t looking to work with all these folks to be honest with you. This happened kind of on its own. There was a plan, didn’t pan out, but it did in a weird way,” he said. “But the thing is when you line up an album with all this music, you’re looking for people to jump on it, the people hear the music and go, ‘Oh, man, yeah, definitely want to be involved in this, one way or another.’ A lot of folks just sent me music and I think that with “Planet Pit” we did exactly what we wanted to do, which was put together an album full of hits. And I wanted to tap into everybody’s world to create our own.”

While Pitbull is off promoting his album with Enrique Iglesias on a tour around the world, the rapper said he wants to forget about the big production and stick to giving music to the public _ like the rock bands he looked up to.

“As far as massive production, I’m not a big fan of that; I’m a big fan of giving fans the artist, giving them entertainment,” he said. “The music is what drives this, drives the public and drives the show. But I guarantee you go to a show and you’ll leave going, “Whoa. How does he stay up there an hour and a half doing that?” I’m still an old-school believer of the artist and the band bringing the music to the public.”

Maria Shriver buys $10 million home after filing for divorce

Nine days after Maria Shriver filed for divorce from Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former television journalist has bought a $10 million mansion in an exclusive neighborhood in Brentwood, California, reports TMZ.

The 11,000 square feet home, which is not too far from where O.J. Simpson lived, is undergoing a complete makeover.

According to pictures obtained by TMZ from inside the vacant mansion, the palatial pad has eight bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a three-car garage, gym, theater and wine room

But the pictures of dust-filled rooms, and empty pool and unfinished carpentry leave a lot to be desired.

The complete renovation is expected to be done in three months.

According to the divorce petition, Shriver cited “irreconcilable differences” as her reason for ending the 25-year marriage.

She is asking for joint custody of their minor children, Patrick, 17, and 13-year-old Christopher.

The filing comes months after the former California governor and one-time action star revealed he had fathered a child out of wedlock with a member of his household staff years ago.

Cheryl Cole Must Finish Filming for X Factor

On the heels of her dismissal from X Factor, Fox has asked Cheryl Cole to come back to the US to complete more filming for the show. Reports, however, say that Cole is not interested.

Cole was fired from the show in June, but had already participated in four audition shows. The show, which is set to air in September, will still air these episodes.

Part of Cole’s deal with Fox includes returning to the show to complete filming before scenes involving her replacement, Nicole Scherzinger.

A source says, “She made no secret of the fact that she does not want to go- and agreed only because TV channel Fox bosses gave her no option.”

Cole was recently seen as the American Embassy to get her visa. Another source says that Cole “left it until the last possible day to collect her visa because she didn’t want to spotted.”
