Justin Bieber's Bodyguard Is His Wingman: Does Justin Bieber employ his bodyguard to pick up chicks for him at nightclubs? Word is Justin keeps a low profile while visiting 21+ clubs (he's 19), and has his older bodyguard scope out chicks to invite to his private tables.
Verdict: True. That's what we are hearing from RumorFix, who reports Bieber is able to get into several hot nightclubs despite being underage. While in New York City he walking into several 21+ clubs, and a source shares, “He was upstairs so no one actually saw him except for when he was going up, but his people did pick out girls and sent them upstairs.”
The source also said the obvious, "All the clubs didn’t care about his age because of the amount of money he spent."
Nicki Minaj And Mariah Carey Gone From American Idol: Is American Idol having another judge exodus? Reports claim that not only is Mariah leaving, but that Nicki is getting out too, leaving just Keith Urban - because Randy Jackson has already said he's retiring.
Verdict: True. Hours after Mariah Carey said she was leaving the reality talent show, Nicki confirm she was as well. She tweeted, "Thank you American Idol for a life changing experience! Wouldn’t trade it for the world! Time to focus on the Music!!! Mmmuuuaahhh!!!"
FOX confirmed the news in a statement which read, "Nicki Minaj is a superstar who brought a level of honesty and passion to ‘American Idol’ and who had a tremendous positive impact on so many contestants this season.

Twilight Producers Sued... By Spoofers: In an ironic twist, the makers of a film titled "Twiharder" is suing Twilight producers Lionsgate for revealing a cease and desist order that scared away distributors.
Verdict: True. Behind the Lines Productions, which made the film described as "hyper-exaggerated caricatures from The Twilight Saga movies and lampooned expressive elements embodied in [the official movies] through imitative reference," says they had several distributors lined up for their film. Then, according to a lawsuit, Lionsgate sent out a "sham cease and desist" that scared away the other companies and left them with an un-sellable film. They want $500 million in damages, according to GossipCop.
