Things are getting worse for Justin Bieber! His neighbors are being urged to call the cops on the singer and his friends. The Home Owner's Association in Justin Bieber's Calabasas home fired off a letter to its residents addressing a certain unnamed "celebrity" neighbor who has been wreaking havoc on their streets. It's clear that the HOA is talking about Justin Bieber. The letter reads: "The storyline concerns one of our celebrity residents confronting another celebrity resident over alleged dangerous driving." Just on Thursday, his friends Lil Twist and Lil Za zoomed through the gated community and went off on a resident who filmed them. Though no names are mentioned, the letter urges residents to call a Sheriff's Department hotline if they spot anyone driving recklessly. The letter also makes it clear that residents who violate HOA rules are subject to disciplinary action from the HOA board in the form of fines and other penalties… which I’m sure would be chunk change to the Biebs!
Say it isn’t so! Adam Levine made it public this weekend! I’m talking about his relationship with model Nina Agdal. The two were spotted in Los Cabos, Mexico, on Saturday. In the first-ever picture of the couple, a shirtless Adam Levine, wearing only shorts, is seen playing around with her in a bikini. My sources are telling me that Adam Levine, who is 34, is "having fun" with the 21-year-old model but "It's still new." Nina Agdal was first spotted on the set of The Voice on May 23rd and later attended a live taping in L.A. five days later to support Adam Levine. Jealous!
Sad news for Demi Lovato over the weekend. Her father has passed away. A rep for the “Heart Attack" singer confirmed that Patrick Lovato passed away, after Demi Lovato's older sister Dallas tweeted, "Rest in peace daddy I love you," on Saturday. Details regarding the circumstances of Patrick's death haven't been released, but he reportedly was battling cancer in the last couple of years. Demi Lovato has yet to release a statement or comment about her father's death on any social networking sites. Demi Lovato, who had been estranged from her father for years, told the New York Daily News in 2009 that she hadn't talked to her father since 2007. Demi Lovato also said, "You try to have faith in somebody, even when you're the last person that believes in him. But when somebody lets you down after you've been the only one there for them, and so many times, you don't know what else to do. I had to cut off all connection. It was hurting me too much." Hopefully she’ll feel ok about everything.
Good luck Lindsay Lohan! Considering the fact that Lindsay Lohan has been moving around from rehab to rehab, I doubt anyone would get Lindsay Lohan to stay put for LONGER than her court-ordered 90 days. But it sounds like Cliffside Malibu wants Lindsay Lohan to put in some extra time at their rehab facility in order for her to truly recover. The CEO of Cliffside, Richard Taite, recently gave an interview where he spoke about celebrities and rehab, and what he said was very interesting. He said: "The celebrities that so many people ask about, the ones who go to rehab after rehab without getting better, often have ["treatment resistant"] addiction … Celebrities who have been classified as ‘treatment resistant’ have come to believe that they are in every way special, and as such, the rules of life and recovery do not apply to them." Hmm… even though no names are mentioned, doesn’t that sound like he’s talking to Lindsay Lohan to you? He finished his statement by saying, "To recover from addiction, the addict must open up to caring professionals. These people often need longer stints in treatment than the average — something their dependents and entourages are not keen on, because the stay in rehab means no money coming in for those who live off another’s fame."
More decisions for Chris Brown and I can’t say I’m surprised! Chris Brown reportedly wants nothing to do with Rihanna anymore, even if it means cutting her moneymaking voice from his upcoming album when his record label is PLEADING that he should reconsider. One song in particular that Chris Brown recorded with Rihanna he wants off the album and he won’t allow the album o be released unless his executive producers TAKE it off. Doesn’t Chris Brown sound so mature? No doubt Rihanna's name alone would give sales a HUGE boost for him. Plus, given his history, he could use the help. Wonder what she did to him this time around!
Here comes another serving of drama for Paula Deen. Over the weekend, Paula Deen was fired from the Food Network for being racist and admitting in a court deposition that she used to use the N-word. Also over the weekend she posted TWO different apologies online. This first one was so bad that they took it down and put up another one because she didn't seem sincere. Paula Deen may also lose her deal with QVC since she was just fired from the Food Network. A representative for the shopping network, which sells her cookware, released a statement Sunday to PEOPLE Magazine that expressed concerns over the situation, stating, "QVC does not tolerate discriminatory behavior." The network is closely monitoring their business relationship with Paula Deen and at the moment has no immediate plans to have her appear on QVC

Here’s your Amanda Bynes story for the day! Her nose job is coming to a computer screen near you! Yesterday marked the day of the surgery, a procedure that Amanda Bynes has been talking about for months… and now, she would love to share the video with you. Amanda Bynes took to Twitter to reveal she not only made it out of the surgery alive, but she'll be posting a video of the process soon for all to see. The tweet reads: "I made it out of the surgery alive! Haha! I'll post the video soon! I need one more procedure to thin out the bridge of my nose!" Amanda Bynes, who said she got her first nose job to remove skin that "was like a webbing" between her eyes, revealed that the only reason she's come forward about having surgery was to force the media to stop using old photos of her. In the past, Amanda Bynes said that having surgery was the most amazing thing for her confidence!" Is it sad that I kind of want to watch the video?
