This time for allegedly smashing a Houston, Texas man’s cellphone to pieces at a club. The Baby singer spotted Robert Earl Morgan taking cellphone photos at Cle nightclub last month and reportedly grabbed the device. According to his $100,000 lawsuit, Morgan claims the phone’s SIM card, which was never returned to him, contained important family moments, including snaps from his grandmother’s 100th birthday celebrations. He alleges the phone grab and smash also cost him business as it wiped out his contacts and has also eaten into his commission as a budding photographer, according to TMZ. Bieber has yet to respond to the latest lawsuit hanging over him. (Toronto Sun)

Julia Roberts earned $3 million for “Mother’s Day” for a supporting role that required her to shoot for only four days, Variety has learned. That means her rate — of $750,000 a day — still puts her among the top-earning actresses in Hollywood. But it’s nowhere near the record (for a woman) $20 million she received at the peak of her career for 2000’s “Erin Brockovich,” a legal story that grossed $250 million worldwide based on the sheer power of its star.
