Judge Rules Britney Spears' Medical Records Be Kept Private

Aug 31, 2011 12:00 PM

BritneySpearsBrandSense230.jpgLos Angeles Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz has ruled that Britney Spears' medical records be kept private in a dispute involving the company Brand Sense.

Brand Sense requested access to Spears' confidential medical information to collect evidence in its $10 million lawsuit against the singer.

The company claims it was robbed of a 35 percent from Spears' Elizabeth Arden fragrance agreement.

In July, it was decided that Spears was not competent enough to testify in the case (Spears' father, Jamie, still has conservatorship of her affairs.) Brand Sense was hoping to prove otherwise -- using the medical records to help.

But Goetz said Brand Sense didn't have good enough reason to get the info.

In June, Spears' former manager, Sam Lutfi, was denied a similar request in his libel case against Spears and her mother.

In other Spears news, it's confirmed that a certain celeb will be joining her on the European leg of her Femme Fatale tour -- keep reading to find out who!

Bravo Will Air Suicide Prevention PSA During Russell Armstrong Special

Aug 31, 2011 10:55 AM


Bravo has released an official statement regarding the handling of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Russell Armstrong's suicide.

It had been reported that a special would air about Russell's suicide -- a special for which every housewife except his estranged wife, Taylor Armstrong, was interviewed.

Now the network has officially announced the special, and also revealed that public service announcements about suicide prevention will air during the broadcast.

The statement also confirmed what had been reported -- that re-editing is being done of the latest season's episodes, but that the intended Sept. 5 premiere date would not be changed. Said Bravo Media President Frances Berwick:

    "Given that these episodes were filmed months ago, the producers of the show taped a brief interview this week with several cast members to introduce the premiere. Re-editing of the episodes is still underway. Bravo will proceed with the Monday, September 5 premiere date ... Our thoughts continue to be with the Armstrong family during this difficult time."

Oksana Grigorieva Gets Only $750,000 From Mel Gibson In Settlement

Aug 31, 2011 09:50 AM


In a Los Angeles court Wednesday, Mel Gibson and ex Oksana Grigorieva finally reached a custody settlement over their daughter, Lucia, who was born in 2009.

The case seems a loss for Oksana. She will get only $750,000 over five years from a man once reported to be worth $900 million. He had reportedly offered her millions in the past, which she turned down. The terms of Wednesday's agreement:

    -Gibson will have to pay Grigorieva $750,000 over five years -- three installments of $250,000 -- one now, one in Sept. 2012 and one in Jan. 2016.

    -The house Grigorieva and Lucia live in must be sold when Lucia turns 18. The money from the sale will be put in a trust for Lucia.

    -Gibson and Grigorieva will have joint legal and physical custody of Lucia.

    -No books can be written by either party about the other.

The couple, who have been engaged in legal battles for months, separated in April 2010. Their relationship exploded online when audio was released of a fight between the two and Oksana accused Mel of physical abuse.

During the Wednesday hearing, Gibson and Grigorieva both thanked the judge.

Gibson is settling several matters this week -- he's also reported to have reached a settlement in his two-year divorce case with his wife of 28 years, Robyn. The divorce should be finalized this week.
