Robbie Williams was left terrified after his neighbor Joe Pesci threatened him with a golf club during a furious bust-up.The 64-year-old actor saw red when Robbie invited his friends over to his Los Angeles home for a game of soccer and they blocked Pesci's driveway with their cars. Pesci stormed out brandishing a club, ranting: "Which one of you mother f***ers blocked my drive?" If you don't move in 30 seconds, I'm going to smash your windscreen."Robbie - who has a soccer pitch at his home and holds weekly matches -initially thought his Oscar-winning neighbor was joking, but quickly realised the star was serious and ordered his friends to move their vehicles. A pal of the 'Rudebox' singer compared the row to a scene from 'Goodfellas', in which Pesci played psychotic gangster Tommy DeVito.The friend told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "It was pretty terrifying in 'Goodfellas' when Pesci's character flew off the handle. Imagine seeing it in real life. Robbie has never had any sort of dispute with his neighbors before and has now given his friends strict instructions to steerclear of Pesci's driveway."One of the things he really likes about Los Angeles is the anonymity - big showdowns are the last thing he wants."

Whitney Houston with Bobby Brown and daughter Bobbi Christina
Whitney Houston has been awarded custody of her daughter in her divorce from Bobby Brown.The 'I Will Always Love You' singer's divorce was approved yesterday by Judge Franz E. Miller in California's Orange County court and will be finalised on April 24. Whitney, 43, will have custody of 14-year-old Bobbi Christina, her daughter with 40-year-old R'n'B star Bobby.The singer dabbed her eyes with a tissue during the hearing and declined to comment on the proceedings as she left the courthouse. Bobby's lawyer said the 'My Prerogative' singer will file a petition to overturn the judge's decision.Whitney initially filed for legal separation from Bobby on September 8 last year and then followed with a divorce request in October. But on December 28, she requested a default judgment to fast-track the dissolution of the marriage. The couple married in 1992 when Whitney was at the height of her success. During their marriage Bobby has been arrested for drugs and alcohol related charges and Whitney has twice entered rehab to be treated for addiction to crack cocaine. Since their separation she has been recording a new album with J Records president Clive Davis in Los Angeles. Despite their split, Whitney and Bobby have been seen together on several occasions dining with their daughter.

Lily Allen has hit back at Lady Sovereign in their war of words. Earlier this week, Sovereign slammed Lily claiming she has only been successful because she has had a helping hand from her dad, top British comedian Keith Allen.The 21-year-old rapper fumed: "I'm not hating on her, but someone like Lily Allen, just because her dad's famous, doesn't have to work as hard as someone like me."Now Lily has sarcastically offered the 'Public Warning' rapper the chance to be adopted by her father Keith so her career can flourish.The 'Smile' singer said: "I've spoken to my dad and he says he'd be happy to adopt you if you think it will give you a leg up."Despite achieving chart success in the US - where she is signed to Jay-Z's record label Def Jam - Lady Sovereign is yet to match her Stateside acclaim in the UK. Lily was left disappointed at last week's BRIT Awards after walking away empty-handed despite being nominated for three accolades, including British Female.

Rapper Diddy "screamed" at Naomi Campbell during a heated bust-up at a Grammy's after-party. Diddy and the supermodel both attended Jermaine Dupri's post-ceremony bash on Sunday night, and eyewitnesses claim the hip-hop star angrily confronted Naomi as soon as he laid eyes on her. A source told the New York Daily News newspaper: "Diddy just started screaming at her when he saw her. No one could believe it. He was screaming obscenities at her, and also screaming at Terrence Howard, who was with her."Naomi is said to have "played it totally cool" and brushed off the unpleasant incident. Diddy and the catwalk beauty - who recently admitted assaulting her former assistant and confessed to having anger management problems - used to be friends. However, Diddy's long-term partner, Kim Porter - the mother of his new baby twin girls - allegedly doesn't like Naomi.
