KIM KARDASHIAN: Blasts Rob's Ex
Kim Kardashian is standing by her brother Rob.
In an interview with Latina magazine, Adrienne Bailon dissed her ex as well as the fam. Adrienne, who dated Rob a few years back, claimed that he was "so disloyal" to her. And if that wasn't enough, the former Disney star says her association with the Kardashians tainted her image. She told the mag, "To be stuck with that Kardashian label, that was so hurtful to me and to my career. I probably realized that too late — not that it would’ve affected my decisions in terms of who I dated, but it would’ve affected my decision to appear on the show."
Kim took to Twitter Wednesday to blast the singer. She wrote, "Funny how she says being with a Kardashian hurt her career yet the only reason she has this article is bc she is talking about a Kardashian." In a second tweet, she added, "#LetItGoooooLetItGoooooo(FROZEN VOICE). So sad when people try to kick my brother when he is down #FamilyForever."

JUSTIN BIEBER: Waging Cyber War Against Orlando Bloom
Justin Bieber is waging a cyber war against Orlando Bloom. A day after Bloom threw a punch at the Bieb, the singer posted an Instagram photo of the actor crying.
That's Justin's second strike. Last night (Tuesday) he put up a pic of Orlando's ex-wife,Miranda Kerr, and then quickly deleted it.

COLUMBUS SHORT: Arrest Warrant Issued
An arrest warrant was issued for Columbus Short today (Wednesday) after the former Scandal star failed to show up for a court date.
The actor was ordered to appear in criminal court for a hearing in his domestic violence case. His estranged wife was asking the judge for more protection from Columbus. When he didn't appear, the judge issued a bench warrant.
He pulled the same stunt earlier this week when he skipped a court date in a different criminal case. The judge threatened to issue a warrant, but Columbus suddenly appeared.
KELSEY GRAMMER: Forgives Sister's Killer
Kelsey Grammer gave some emotional testimony yesterday (Tuesday) in a parole hearing for the man who murdered his sister four decades ago -- but fell short of advocating for his release.
Freddie Glenn was convicted in 1975 of raping and killing Karen Grammer, as well as murdering two other men in Colorado. Speaking via video conference, Kelsey said he forgives Glenn -- but that's as far as he'll go. He said, "I accept your apology. I forgive you. However, I cannot give your release my endorsement. To give that a blessing would be a betrayal of my sister's life."
MIKE TYSON: Jamie Foxx to Play the Boxer in Bio-Pic
Jamie Foxx has been cast to play Mike Tyson in a bio-pic, according to Variety.
Jamie has been impersonating Mike for years. During an appearance on Live With Kelly and Michael back in May, Jamie expressed his interest in the project. He said, "I got a chance to hang out with Mike when Mike was at his height and I watched [him] go from his height to where he is now, and I talked to him about doing his story. I had my makeup artist dress me up as Mike Tyson… People were literally coming up asking for autographs. So hopefully, Mike, if you’re listening, let’s make history."
THE BIG BANG THEORY: Production Delayed Amid Contract Standoff
You may have to wait a bit longer for new episodes of The Big Bang Theory.
The cast is still holding out for more money and has forced production on the new season to be delayed. It was set to begin today (Wednesday). Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki,Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar all remain without new contracts. Sources say they're holding out for Friends money -- by the end of their run, the stars of the NBC hit were raking in a million bucks per episode.
Creator Chuck Lorre tells E! News that "it will be fine. Warner Brothers has done this before. Everybody should be very successful and happy and rich. They earned it. It's a great cast. Great cast. It's their time."
The Big Bang Theory's eight season is still set to kick off on September 22nd -- but if that doesn't work out, you can always watch the reruns.
