More trouble for Weezy as he’s on the receiving of a lawsuit after a man was hit in the head with a skateboard by one of Wayne’s employees! Read on for all the details.
Lil Wayne‘s no stranger to trouble with the law, and the rapper’s facing down a new lawsuit from a fan who claims that one of Weezy’s employees bashed the man in the head with a skateboard — all for trying to take a measly photo!
The victim of the alleged attack, Alfredo Marino, has attorney Craig Chisvin file his lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court on Feb. 8. Alfredo claims that he spotted the rapper, 30, on the streets of L.A. in 2012 and attempted to take a picture. But before he could, a man who works for Weezy grabbed a skateboard and hit him in the back of the head.
In his lawsuiw, Alfredo claims he suffered a severe injury to his head as result of the assault, and is blaming the “Lollipop” rapper and his record label, Young Money Records, for the battery because he believes they were responsible for “enabling the attacker,” TMZ reports.
Alfredo is suing for unspecified damages.
Lil Wayne’s Recent Health Scare
The lawsuit comes just months after Lil Wayne had a health scare and had to be hospitalized twice for reported “seizure-like symptoms”. He was first hospitalized on Oct. 25 after exhibiting the symptoms aboard his private jet. The plane made an emergency stop in Texas, where he was rushed to a local hospital, TMZ reported.
His rep told HollywoodLife.com exclusively, "Lil Wayne was successfully released from the hospital after being treated for a severe migraine and dehydration. He is at home on doctor mandated rest and will return to work soon. He appreciates all of his fans for their support and love."
The following day, he was reportedly rushed to the hospital again after exhibiting the same symptoms on a flight from Texas to Los Angeles.
Do you think Lil Wayne should be held responsible for this other man’s actions, HollywoodLifers?
Rihanna attended court with Chris on Feb. 6, and he’s returning the favor come Grammys night. HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY confirm that Chris will be by RiRi’s side on Feb. 10! Read on for all the inside scoop.
As Rihanna gears up for her big Grammys weekend, she’s making it clear to friends that, come the big day, there will only be one man on her side: Chris Brown!
Just like Rihanna, 24, has been by Chris’ side as he’s dealt with his recent legal troubles, the R&B bad boy, 23, will be on the Unapologetic singer’s arm at the Staples Center in L.A. on Feb. 10, four years after the two were involved in the infamous assault that changed both of their lives.

She’s focused and looking forward the the Grammys and [she] will be with Chris the whole night, so you know that’s going to be extra f**king special. He already told her he would go with her, so its a wrap.”
Rihanna & Chris Brown’s Troubled Week Before The Grammys
While the two may be looking to have a little fun come Grammys night, the days preceding the event have been considerably more morose. On Jan. 5, Chris faced an allegation that he’d doctored his community service records, thereby violating the terms of his probation.
He and his lawyer were ordered to appear in court the following day to respond the the District Attorney’s claims, but Chris has one more important person with him as he arrived: Rihanna. The two were spotted leaving his house together before arriving at the courthouse.
While in the courtroom, Rihanna reportedly blew her beau a kiss, as she sat in the gallery with his mother, Joyce Hawkins. After the hearing was over, she and Chris emerged from the courtroom arm-in-arm.
Are you excited to see Chris and Rihanna together on the red carpet, HollywoodLifers?

On the 2013 SI swimsuit cover, Kate, 20, looks HOT, and according to the magazine, she looks “Polar Bare.” Standing against some snow and ice bergs — man, that must have been chilly for Kate — she looks sexy and sultry while showing her ample bosom in nothing but a fur lined ski jacket and some white bikini bottoms.
However, Kate is certainly used to showing off her sexy side, as she cleaned a car better than anyone I’ve ever seen for Mercedes Benz. In her sexy Super Bowl ad, Kate cleans a car in slow motion. And that’s about it, but who cares!
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Does Kate look sexier than ever? Will you be getting a copy of Sports Illustrated when it hits shelves?

Talk about an awards season bummer! Rob’s filming obligations in Australia will be keeping him from attending the 2013 Academy Awards on Feb. 24, according to a new report! Read on for all the details.
We love it when our favorite hunk, Robert Pattinson, is on the slate of presenters at an awards show — it lessens the sting from his lack of nominations! Because of this, we’re totally bummed by a new report that says Rob, 26, won’t be in attendance at the 85th Annual Academy Awards on Feb. 24!
It turns out that Rob’s obligations to his new project, The Rover, will be keeping the English hunk in the Australian outback, according to E! News’ Marc Malkin. The columnist writes, “While Pattinson fans have been hopeful that they’d see their fave star in Los Angeles for the Oscars, I’m told filming will keep him away from this year’s festivities.” Bummer!
Robert Pattinson’s Australian Antics
Rob’s been keeping quite busy down under, with his crew filming is mostly remote and desolate towns on the outskirts of Flinders Ranges, but it’s not been all work. The Twilight actor was had a run-in with police after being caught riding a bike without a helmet!
"Yes that is the case [that he was cautioned]," a representative with the SA Police told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. "He will not be fined, it is just a simple caution. We had a chat with him and told him that it is a requirement to wear a helmet while cycling a pushbike. It's no biggie."
As for how the hunk was caught, it turns out it was a pesky fan! "Someone took a picture of him when he was out cycling so that is how we knew," the officer says. "If he does it again, he will be fined."
Are you bummed that Rob won’t be at this year’s Oscars, HollywoodLifers?
Poor Jennifer Lawrence is having a rough month. First she had what looked like a wardrobe malfunction at the SAG Awards, now she’s tripped and fallen at an event in London on Feb. 8, losing her shoe in the process! She really is just like us!
Jennifer Lawrence may have taken a tumble en route to a London event in support of her film Silver Linings Playbook on Feb. 8, but the glamorous star handled her stumble with ease. Much like when her dress appeared to rip at the SAG Awards in L.A. on Jan. 27, Jen, 22, dealt with losing her shoe just as we’d expect the girl who played Katniss to — by landing on her feet!
The Oscar-nominated actress was attending a dinner in honor of Silver Linings Playbook at Little House, guided by security, when she tripped and fell. In the process, Jen lost her shoe, but she never lost her dignity!
Jennifer Lawrence Addresses Her SAG Awards Wardrobe Malfunction
The charming starlet tends to address moments of humility with grace and humor, much like when she appeared on Piers Morgan Tonight on Jan. 31 to joke about her SAG Awards blooper! She was hysterical when, while watching the footage, she told Piers, "My pants fell off! Somebody trips me on the way, I remember that. I'm keepin' it together, keepin' it together…and then my pants fall off! Yep! Oh, god."
J.Law’s Uneven Breasts
Jennifer’s humility has been on full display, as of late. She also sat down with Jimmy Kimmel and recounted a hilarious story about how she discovered her breasts were uneven!
“I just went to the doctor today, I got a chest X-ray of my lungs and discovered that my breasts are uneven," Jennifer told an amused Jimmy. "I was like standing there with these doctors and they're like looking at my lungs and I just couldn't—it felt like an elephant in the room—and I was like, 'Are my breasts uneven?' And they were just kind of, like, stifled and uncomfortable, obviously. So I kept thinking, 'Well, I'm gonna dig myself out of this hole by bringing it up again.'”
Do you think Jennifer handled her fall with grace, HollywoodLifers?

Miley Cyrus, 20, may be in the process of planning her upcoming wedding to Liam Hemsworth, 23, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have time to hang out with friends like Ed Westick!
The pair were spotted out together on Feb. 7 when photographers snapped pictures of Ed, 25, getting into the same car Miley was in.We’re not exactly sure what Miley was doing with Ed, but we’re definitely jealous!

"They want classic but unique wedding bands,” a friend of the jewelry designer reveals to Life & Style.
The couple’s Palm Springs wedding will also follow suit — classic with a unique twist. "They're inviting just their closest friends and family, and they're writing their own vows,” the friend of the couple explains.”They will be silly and sweet."
A small wedding sounds like the perfect plan for the private couple. We think it’s so sweet that Miley and Liam are putting so much work into tailoring their wedding rings and vows uniquely to them!

Rob — you should trust Kristen. If you don’t love her, fine — but if you love her and don’t trust her, that’s no good. The only way to really repair your relationship is to trust her again!
Robert Pattinson, I know you were heartbroken when Kristen Stewart cheated on you with Rupert Sanders, but if you are committed to rebuilding a successful relationship with Kristen, you HAVE to trust her! It’s not fair to anyone for you to keep holding her mistakes against her.
It was a huge mistake and she groveled in front of the world. In her very public apology, she pleaded for your forgiveness,”This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry."
Everyone makes mistakes, and Kristen recognizes this was a huge one. You’ve decided to give her a second chance, so you have to honor that. If she ever cheated on you again, that would be it and you would be right to not trust her. But this was a one-time mistake, and she deserves your forgiveness and trust.
Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart’s Committed To You
She has done everything to prove it was a mistake and assure you that she will never do it again. A source recently told Hollywoodlife.com that Kristen made a “commitment” to you to cut Rupert out of her life forever, and she’s stayed true to that promise. While you’re away in Australia, she’s making it clear she learned her lesson and is staying far away from him!
I know you’re worried that, while you’re away filming The Rover, Kristen may stray from that promise, but stop! You have to trust her while you’re away. You didn’t have to take her back after the affair — but you did. It isn’t fair to you, her, or your relationship for you to continue to focus on her past mistakes. To give your relationship a real, honest try, you have to start over with a clean slate.
Rob, Give Couples’ Therapy A Try
If you really do still love her and are still unable to get past her infidelity, it’s probably insecurity. The only way to get past these issues is for you to go to therapy. Lots of couples go to therapy so they can build a happy, healthy relationship together, and that may be exactly what you and Kristen need. You and Kristen had a beautiful relationship together, it would be a shame for you to lose it because you didn’t try everything.
If this relationship is really special to you — you need to hold on to it. You’ve made it clear your relationship with Kristen is something worth fighting for, so you need to give it all you’ve got! Do you agree, HollywoodLifers? Tell me now!
