Lindsay Lohan says she suffered a miscarriage during the taping of her reality TV series, The Associated Press reports.

The 27-year-old actress made the disclosure during Sunday's final episode of "Lindsay," the OWN cable channel series.

Lohan said the miscarriage was the reason that she was unable to appear on the program at one point. She said she was sick and unable to move.

She didn't offer any further details on the program about her ill-fated pregnancy.

Lohan began taping the OWN reality show shortly after leaving her sixth stint in rehab last summer.

The producers behind the past two Oscar telecasts are coming back for a third time, the AP reports.

The film academy announced Monday that Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will return to produce the 87th annual Academy Awards. The two were responsible for the 2013 show hosted by Seth MacFarlane and this year's telecast starring Ellen DeGeneres.

Film academy chief Dawn Hudson said Zadan and Meron "are masters at tapping into the zeitgeist." This year's show set social media records when DeGeneres' star-studded selfie became the most re-tweeted image ever.

Meron said on Twitter on Monday that it's "a great honor" to produce the Oscar show again.

The 87th Oscars will be held Feb. 22 at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre.

Pharrell, Drake and Blake Shelton are among the A-listers set to perform at the first iHeartRadio Music Awards, the AP reports.

Clear Channel announced Monday that Kendrick Lamar, Shakira, Ed Sheeran and Arcade Fire will also take the stage at the May 1 awards show in Los Angeles. Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Lorde and Coldplay's Chris Martin will make appearances.

Contenders for artist of the year include Rihanna, Maroon 5, Justin Timberlake, Imagine Dragons and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

The awards will air live on NBC from the Shrine Auditorium starting at 8 p.m.

Luke Bryan, Pitbull, Ariana Grande and Thirty Seconds to Mars will also perform during the three-hour telecast.

Justin Bieber's former neighbor Keyshawn Johnson may have complained about the pop star's driving last year, but now it's the former NFL star suspected of being on the wrong side of the law.

Sheriff's deputies responded to a Calabasas, Calif., residence early Monday morning regarding a possible spousal assault call for service, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. Per authorities, when deputies arrived at the scene, Johnson and his ex-girlfriend appeared to be "involved in a domestic dispute." According to the LASD, the "ensuing investigation" resulted in Johnson's arrest for misdemeanor domestic battery.

The 41-year-old former "Dancing With the Stars" competitor was booked at Malibu/Los Hills Sheriff's Station and bail was set at $20,000. He posted bond and was released from custody around 9:15 a.m.

Johnson currently appears as an analyst on ESPN's Sunday Morning Countdown. When NBC Sports' Professional Football Talk blog asked for comment, an ESPN spokesman said, "We are aware and are looking into it."

A rep for the retired football player has not yet returned a request for comment.

Fortunately, Johnson no longer needs to worry about running into Biebs at the corner store: Kourtney Kardashian bought the athlete's Calabasas home in January, and Khloe Kardashian purchased Bieber's home in March.

 

After Justin Bieber's January DUI arrest inspired a petition to kick the Canadian singer out of the country, the official response from the government's We the People may let down the non-Beliebers, People reports.

"Sorry to disappoint, but we won't be commenting on this one," reads the statement.

"The We the People terms of participation state that, 'to avoid the appearance of improper influence, the White House may decline to address certain procurement, law enforcement, adjudicatory, or similar matters properly within the jurisdiction of federal departments or agencies, federal courts, or state and local government in its response to a petition.' "

The statement continues: "So we'll leave it to others to comment on Mr. Bieber's case, but we're glad you care about immigration issues."

The petition, created Jan. 23 and titled "Deport Justin Bieber and revoke his green card," received more than 273,000 signatures (nearly triple the 100,000 needed to guarantee a response). And while the White House didn't go into further details about the singer's own legal problems, the statement discussed immigration reform.

"Independent economists say immigration reform will grow our economy and shrink our deficits by almost $1 trillion in the next 20 years," reads the response. "For those of you counting at home, that's 12.5 billion concert tickets -- or 100 billion copies of Mr. Bieber's debut album."

Meanwhile, Bieber, 20, was spotted enjoying the States last week as he hit Coachella with on-again-off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez.

Since pleading not guilty to all charges (driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving without a valid driver's license), he is currently awaiting trial now scheduled for May 5.

The bodyguard for R&B singer Chris Brown was convicted of assault Monday in connection with an altercation with a fan, and a judge delayed the singer's trial until Wednesday, the Washington Post reports.

Attorneys for Brown, who is accused of striking a fan outside a District of Columbia hotel in October, had asked for the delay in the case, which had been scheduled to go to trial Monday.

The request came after Brown's bodyguard, Chris Hollosy, 35, was found guilty of misdemeanor assault in connection with the incident. His two-day trial was held last week in D.C. Superior Court.

Brown's attorneys have said that he is innocent and that he and Hollosy were trying to protect Brown and his property. But Senior Judge Patricia Wynn, who oversaw Hollosy's trial, rejected Hollosy's self defense claim and said Hollosy's reaction "was not justified" in protecting Brown and that the victim in the case presented no serious threat. Wynn called Hollosy's punch "excessive."

Hollosy is scheduled to be sentenced on June 25. The charge carries a maximum of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Brown is in custody of the U.S. Marshals Service and was transported via prison bus from a Virginia jail to the courthouse Monday morning.

If Brown's trial begins on Wednesday, the witnesses scheduled to testify are expected to be the same who testified in the Hollosy trial, including the victim Parker Adams, his girlfriend, a Howard University freshman and a limo driver.

If Brown is convicted, in addition to a maximum six months in jail, he also faces as much as additional four years in jail in California as a result of violating the terms of his probation in the Rihanna case.
