Justin Bieber is Being Sued for $650k by Canadian Company
Team Productions is suing the Biebs for defamation after, they say, he broke their contract and caused irreparable damage to their business. The company says they contracted with Bieber to do a live performance in a Montreal club, and that he was supposed to promote it on social media. But Team Productions says Justin was not promoting the event. Then Justin threatened to not show if they didn’t pay him the rest of the money. They didn’t want to pay the full amount, because Justin didn’t hold up his side of the contract by promoting the show. So Justin tweeted this:
Montreal due to the promoter of today’s event breaking his contract and lying I will not be able to attend today’s event. I’m sorry
— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) August 22, 2015
Now Team Productions says no one will work with them because of Justin’s comments. They are seeking $500,000 in lost earnings potential, $100,000 for damage to the company’s reputation and $50,000 in punitive damages. Get more here.

Prince’s six siblings are in a frenzy trying to get themselves enough money to live on until his estate is settled. So they decided to put together a TV special honoring their late brother.

Cara Delevingne Had a Meltdown at a Train Station
Cara Delevingne had a meltdown at a Paris train station after they pulled her luggage aside for a random security check. She started swearing at the security officers, then got down on her knees to mock-pray they would let her on the train. A source said, quote, “It was like she thought she didn’t have to abide by the same rules as everyone else just because she’s famous.” But she DID. Security actually detained her in a private room for a while. When she came out, her eyes were red, as if she’d been crying, and she apologized to the officers. She got hit with a fine, and was allowed to board the next train. If you don’t know who she is, you’d probably recognize her:
