January 04, 2006 08:46:30 GMT

Finally the law of restricting hardcore photographers from harming the public has come into real form in California as former movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger who now becomes the state's governor introduced the new law right on the first day of the 2006. It strongly states that anyone who commits assault in an attempt to get a photograph/video recording has to pay triple damages and hands down profits from the photograph.

Eagerly welcomed the law, Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Bill Hodgman expressed his support upon its materialization and advised all celebrities who become victims of any vicious photographers to contact his office. "We encourage them to come to us with their complaints and then co-operate with us in an effort to bring these people to justice," he said.

January 04, 2006 07:39:50 GMT

After facing a lawsuit from Zeta Graff, the former girlfriend of her ex-fiance Paris Latsis, Paris Hilton reportedly revealed a shocking statement that she has fabricated the story about Graff's jealousy and criminal behavior she previously claimed to be directed toward her in June 2005. According to a reliable source, the beautiful socialite made a deposition in the slander lawsuit and admitted she planted a false story in the press in which she affirmed Graff's attack on her in a London nightclub.

In the meantime, Graff herself has been spotted saying: "Hilton will learn a valuable lesson about what happens when you try to ruin another person's reputation. She made a number of false statements about me, and she repeatedly lied under oath during her recent deposition. I look forward to her explaining all of this to a jury." Seems that Hilton will have to pay high for all of this mess then.

Phoenix Walked His Line in Prison

January 04, 2006 04:24:45 GMT

Followed the trail of his character in "Walk the Line", Johnny Cash who once held his concert at Folsom State Prison, Joaquin Phoenix visited the spot Tuesday to perform several acoustic songs with his co-star, Shooter Jennings, while also accompanied fifty-plus inmates to watch the acclaimed biopic feature. Dressed head to toe in Cash's trademark black suit, Phoenix humbly asked for apology due to his "rusty" performance as he had not played since the movie's completion. "I don't know if you've noticed but I've messed up like 40 times," he said. "I'm all over the place."

The event itself was organized by Prison Fellowship, a group that runs Bible studies and other educational programs in prisons, with the consideration that the movie's message would be good for inmates because Cash's "whole life was a message of redemption." "The movie is about how he screwed it up really bad, and he turned to Jesus Christ to help him change," said Prison Fellowship spokesman Joe Avila, explaining the reason behind the selection.

It's really such an awful way to end a year for Obie Trice as he unexpectedly experienced a gunshot wound while driving his SUV with his girlfriend on Detroit's Lodge Freeway around 1:10 a.m. on December 31, 2005. One of the bullets that were fired toward him went through the back window of his car and horrifyingly grazed his head, but fortunately the rapper did not encounter any serious injuries.

According to Michigan State Police Sergeant Mario Gonzalez, Trice continued to drive after the shot before exited the freeway in the suburb of Southfield and was taken to receive a treatment from Providence Hospital later that night. "He's doing fair, but he's naturally quite upset," Delois Askew, Trice's grandmother, told the Detroit News Sunday. "It's a puzzle why anyone would want to do this. Was it just a random incident, or did someone go after him? That's what we're trying to figure out."
