Kanye Charged With Felony Attempted Robbery After Aasault

Why TMZ Kanye? Anybody but TMZ!

Once again ‘Ye’s temper got the best of him as he bumrushed a TMZ photographer , who was tad too aggressive and asking the rapper too many questions.

The incident happened on Friday around 2pm outside of LAX airport, Yeezy went off and basically wrestled a paparazzi down to the ground, all the while yelling at the man.

Paramedics soon arrived and tended to the shaken and scratched up cameraman. The man was treated at a nearby hospital and now an investigation has ensued.

And yes, the photographer is pressing charges. In fact,  law enforcement has labeled the case a felony attempted robbery — not an assault — apparently because Kanye may have been trying to swipe the paparazzo’s camcorder.

Come on Yeezus, Harvey Levin is an ex- Los Angeles attorney and can make anything happen.

Lilo-Pallooza! Looks like Lindsay may be Charged With Assault

Actress Lindsay Lohan may be charged with attacking that female employee during her stint at the Betty Ford Rehabilitation Center, police say.

Despite Dawn Holland’s refusal to cooperate with a police investigation, the Palm Desert authorities are now claiming that the actress may have committed MULTIPLE violations of her probation, and are referring the case to prosecutors.

“The investigation determined Ms.  Lohan violated several aspects of her probation, including the battery (charge),” the Palm Desert Police Department said in a statement.

Although it’s not 100% clear on what other terms she violated during her stay, a source close to law enforcement officials claims that she also refused a breathalyzer.

Linday’s probation officer refused to arrest the actress the night of the altercation, which brings wonderment on why police are so adamant about other probation violations.

IN OTHER LINDSAY NEWS…

Daddy Michael Lohan is furious with Lindsay’s acquaintance Linda Koopersmith, who betrayed Lindsay by bringing a camera into the actress’ house hours after she was released from rehab.

“She violated Lindsay’s privacy, safety and the trust Lindsay had for her. How sick is that? Lindsay just gets out and already people are using her to promote themselves and make money.”

Here’s what Lindsay’s attorney Shawn Chapman Holley had to say about it:

“I had numerous conversations with Betty Ford counselors and doctors and it was never suggested by anyone that she ever drank or used drugs. Her discharge letter is totally consistent with that.”

winehouse at trial: accused of assaulting woman

amy winehouse

Amy Winehouse plead to the court yesterday that she is too short to have punched another woman in the face, especially because her trademark beehive hairstyle gets in the way.

The singer is on trial and has been accused of assaulting dancer Sherene Flash, who asked to take her picture after a charity ball in London’s Berkeley Square.

Winehouse told District Judge Timothy Workman that at “5 foot 2Ω, or 5 foot 3,” (about 1.6 metres) she was too short to have hit the taller woman in the face.

“My hair does make a difference,” said the singer, who sported her signature hairdo in court.

She then proceded to show the court her shoes, that she said were similar to the  ones she wore the night of the assault.

“These are really flat. They don’t even have a sole,” she said.

Winehouse, who was granted a divorce from her ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil a week ago, say quietly and attentively while her case was plead; and she occassionally took notes.

The singer looked very healthy while taking the stand. She said she had felt intimidated and annoyed when Flash “lunged at me and put her arm around me,” and had only meant to push the other woman’s arm away.

“I pushed her up, like away. I wanted her away from me,” Winehouse said.

“It was more like an indication of ‘leave me alone, I’m scared of you.”’

“I meant to just get her away from me. I was scared. I thought, people are mad these days, people are just rude and mad, or people can’t handle their drink.”

However, to no ones surprise, the prosecution attempted to tear Winehouse down by inquiring about her corruptive lifestyle.  They implied that the singer seemed to have been under the influence of alcohool or some kind of drug and that she may have agreed to take the photo, but became enraged when a third party attempted to enter the photo as well.

The trial is adjourned until Friday.
