Don’t you hate it when you get the chance to meet a celebrity and they’re a jerk? An Internet radio host in Charlotte, North Carolina claims that Justin Bieber was rude and insulted her when she tried to work out at a local gym. Colette Harrington says Justin was working out with a trainer and one of his backup dancers, when she approached and introduced herself as a radio host. Justin replied, quote, "Good for you." Then she asked for a picture and he said no so she just went ahead with her workout. Colette says she counts her reps out loud and Justin and one of the other guys started mocking her by counting out loud with her, and then shouting "Shut the [eff] up" every time she hit 20. She said she felt like she was back in grade school and being made fun of. Justin's rep says that they were making snide comments. But he says they were ripping on each other, and NOT on Colette.
Good Grief Charlie Brown. Peter Robbins…the man who provided the ORIGINAL voice of Charlie Brown…was arrested for stalking and making violent threats. He was arrested at a border crossing in San Diego after a background check turned up a warrant. There's no word what he did, but the official charges against him are one count of stalking and four counts of making a threat to cause death or great bodily injury. All five are felonies. Robbins is 56 years old now. He was 9 when he became the first person to voice Charlie Brown, in the 1965 special "A Boy Named Charlie Brown". He continued doing the character until the age of 13… in such specials as "A Charlie Brown Christmas" and "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown". No comment from Robbins lawyer
We saw the big Nicki Minaj fight from Charlotte that went viral and sparked ongoing backstage bickering. Nicki wasn’t happy that Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson urged contestant Summer Cunningham to go country, even though Summer said she had done "the country thing." Nicki said, "Maybe I should just get off the f**king panel,” before bolting. Mariah took exception at the diva-like behavior. Nicki was heard off-camera telling her fellow judges to "Shut the f**k up."
This could be a PR nightmare for mama Kardashan….The widow of Robert Kardashian released some of his journals to "In Touch Weekly". These journals were supposedly written in 1989 and '90. And in one entry, Robert talks about his then-wife, Kris, beating up their daughter Kim….who would have been 9 or 10 at the time. Robert said, quote, "Kris was kicking and beating her and said she was going to kill [Kim]! Kim was hysterical." In another entry, Robert wrote about how Kris would leave for days to mess around with Todd Waterman…a guy she has since admitted to cheating on Robert with. Apparently, Kris also skipped a Christmas with the family…quote, "Kris couldn't get her act together. I was home alone with 4 kids." Kris's rep says, quote, "We have no knowledge of these diaries existing and these accusations are ridiculous and not true."
We heard Lindsay Lohan turned down a $550,000 offer to do "Dancing With the Stars" because she thinks she's above reality TV. But according to a new report, her advisers turned it down because they don't think she can handle live television. A source says, quote, "Lindsay has been a mess on movie sets lately. She doesn't show up on time, she keeps everyone waiting and so her team decided that there was no way that she could handle the pressure of a live show like 'Dancing With the Stars'."
Manti Te’o’s interview with Katie Couric airs on her show today…but ABC showed a clip from it on "Good Morning America" yesterday. The new development is that Manti admits to Katie that he did lie to the media…but only "briefly" and NOT about being involved in the hoax in any way. Basically, that "brief" time was the SIX-WEEK period from December 6th to last week, when the story broke. December 6th is when he got the phone call from his dead girlfriend's cell phone number, where he was told she was ALIVE. And yet, after that he continued to talk about the dead girl Lennay Kekua in interviews leading up to the National Championship game.
ESPN believes they have Manti’s phone records for the final four months of Lennay Kekua's fake life…and he wasted A LOT OF TIME talking to her. There were more than 1,000 calls between them, totaling more than 500 hours in length.
Meanwhile, Diane O’Meara…the woman whose pictures were stolen and used to represent the dead girlfriend, Lennay…has been in her own relationship for the past five years. Presumably, with someone she's actually met.

Adele will perform her "Skyfall" theme at the Oscars next month. It'll be her first U.S. performance since last year's Grammys
Lena Dunham…the brilliant creator and star of the HBO series "Girls"…doesn't think young girls should look up to Rihanna. And she's worried about how many actually do. She says, quote, "I don't want to ever throw stones from my glass house…but I follow her on Instagram and I just think about how many little girls beyond what I could even comprehend are obsessed with Rihanna." "Like, you know, she left Barbados, she's had this amazing career, she's won a Grammy…She's talented. And then she gets back together with Chris Brown and posts a million pictures of them smoking marijuana together on a bed. "And it cracks my heart in half in a way that makes me feel like I'm 95 years old." She adds, quote, "I've had to become more conscious about what I say and what I promote, not in a way that stifles me, but just in a way where I realize now that there are 17-year-old girls who come up to me and tell me that the show means a lot to them."
Christian Bale may have his anger issues, but I'm calling it now: He's an awesome. In the past year, he's visited victims of the "Dark Knight Rises" shooting in Aurora and flown a 4-year-old cancer patient and his family to Disneyland to spend the day with him and his own family. And now there's this: Bale recently called an 8-year-old leukemia patient named Zach, who's a huge Batman fan…and talked to him for about nine minutes. With a little prodding from his parents, Zach tells Bale about his custom-made Batmobile, and how he's actually convinced his little brother that he really IS Batman. Bale tells Zach, quote, "The whole point of the movie is anybody can be Batman. Anybody can be as strong as that and help people and put good out into the world."
The biggest question facing our nation today has finally been answered. Sort of. Beyonce did NOT sing the national anthem live at President Obama’s inauguration on Monday. We think. We still can't be 100% certain, because this comes from an anonymous source. However, CNN claims it's an inauguration official who asked not to be named. This source said, quote, "Because she didn't have time to rehearse with the Marine Band, she decided to use her recording with the Marine Band. It was all Beyoncé." Still no word from Beyoncé.
Barry Manilow was forced to cancel a Broadway show on Tuesday night, after losing his voice. His rep blamed it on a, quote, "brutal case of bronchitis."--According to the "New York Post", Barry was, quote, "mobbed by women of a certain age outside" the theater before his show . . . and when it was determined that he had to cancel, they were NOT happy.--A "source" says, quote, "A riot has broken out. Traffic is stopped on the entire street. There were middle-aged ladies losing their minds and mounted police." (???) (--Barry Fever! The show has been rescheduled for February 26th.)
