Troubled singer Chris Brown is denying that he was due to perform at the BET Awards on Sunday night, amid gossip he was dumped over his recent assault case with Rihanna.

He got a community service order and five years supervised probation as well as being told to stay away from Rihanna.The singer was allegedly due to take the stage at the BET Awards ceremony in Los Angeles California. But his performance was rumored to have been canned because of his recent legal trouble at the insistence of Rihanna's musical mentor Jay-Z. A source tells the New York Daily News, "Jay is a big name in the BET community, and he was very vocal about his displeasure with Chris attending the ceremony. He didn't want Chris anywhere near the awards so close to the court's ruling."But a spokesman for Brown is denying that he was ever booked to play at the glitzy show.The rep tells New…

Deborah Gibson With Michael Jackson


We here at Times Square Gossip are big Deborah Gibson fans ... always have been! So, when we asked the original American idol what she thought of Michael’s passing, she gave us this reply: I have always been and will always be a fan of Michael Jackson. I remember asking my parents to buy me the red jacket with glove and sunglasses, which I still have today. He influenced my life, from his music to the way he danced and performed. Michael Jackson will always be the King of Pop. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. I met Michael and he told me he had just watched a Disney special I did. I was blown away by the thought of The one and only Michael Jackson sitting there watching me on TV. He then invited me to be in his "Liberian Girl" video. I actually was one of the few who got to sing a little snippet live over his vocal. To say it was an honor is an understatement.…

MELONI AND HARGITAY SIGN NEW CONTRACT

Mariska Hargitay


Law And Order: SVU stars Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay have finally ended their months-long contract disagreement with television bosses, after signing two-year deals to remain on the hit show. The couple reportedly jeopardized their return to the show by demanding more money from network bosses. Hargitay and Meloni allegedly asked for a share of the program's profits from the NBC network, in addition to the $350,000 they earned per episode, a rare deal similar to ones TV bosses cut with "Law and Order: Criminal Intent" stars Vincent D'Onofrio and Chris Noth. Media reports in April suggested bosses had threatened to can the couple when their contracts expire in May if an agreement could not be reached, but they have agreed to a new two-year deal. "Law and Order: SVU" has been on the air for 11 years.

Denise Richards In Steppin Out Magazine


DENISE RICHARDS ON "JON AND KATE" AND DEALING WITH THE BAD PRESS:


I think my show is so different from their show. I got a lot of flack the first season about my kids being on the show, but that was partly because my ex-husband [Charlie Sheen] wasn’t happy about it. With Jon and Kate, it’s honestly none of my business. I don’t know what’s going on with them. I feel for them because to be thrown into the spotlight is very difficult to deal with. Although, I can relate to bad press. What helped me get through it was truly not reading anything. It’s an awful thing to deal with. So, I just put myself in a bubble. I wouldn’t read anything, and I didn’t wan…

Pop singing star Michael Jackson's worldwide fans will get a chance to pay their final respects to him at a public viewing at his Neverland Valley Ranch on Friday. According to CNN, Jackson's body will arrive on Thursday. There will be a 30-car motorcade to the home that he lived in for almost 20 years. A spokesperson for Jackson also told the news outlet that a private memorial service for the legend will be held on Sunday. There has been no announcement on where Jackson will be buried. On Monday, Jackson's father, Joseph, denied rumors that his son would be buried at Neverland and said that it was too early to talk about funeral plans because the family was still awaiting the results of a second autopsy, that the family ordered. Jackson spent much of his life living in the Los Angeles California area, but the mayor of his hometown of Gary, Indiana has asked the family to consider burying the singer there. A spokesperson for Mayor Rudy Clay told CNN that the city's l…
