COPS MAY NOT HAVE CASE AGAINST BYNES
Looks like Amanda Bynes may have the last laugh, because TMZ reports there’s a good chance last week’s charges for marijuana possession and reckless endangerment may get dropped. The site claims cops in New York didn’t actually recover any pot at the scene, although the police report says officers smelled “a strong odor of marijuana.” As for the bong she allegedly threw out the window, cops didn’t find remnants of the glass until earlier this week, after a TMZ producer spotted it on a sub-roof of Amanda’s apartment. The fact that it was exposed for so long before cops found it means there’s no way of knowing whether it was tampered with, and would likely not be admissible as evidence. Even though Amanda admitted to throwing what she claimed was a vase, without the physical evidence it would be extremely difficult to prosecute her.
BYNES IN TWITTER WAR WITH MODEL
Amanda Bynes is once again calling someone ugly on Twitter. Her latest war is with supermodel Chrissy Teigen, who Tuesday night tweeted, “the fact that Amanda Bynes has any ‘support’ to retweet is really unsettling.” She then added, “support people with mental illness, yes. but don’t condone/enable scary and poor behavior.” Well, as you can imagine, Bynes didn’t take that too well. “@chrissyteigen Ur not a pretty model compared to me. I signed to Ford models @ age 13. I don’t look up to u beauty wise. I’m far prettier than u!,” she wrote in another rambling tweet. “I’m offended that you’re saying I have a mental illness when I show no sign of it, but thankfully not one man that wants me wants you and you are an old ugly model compared to me!” She added, “I think you’re jealous that you’re just an ugly model whos career is uninspiring! I don’t respect you! You’re no beauty queen! I’m a beauty queen!”
BYNES’ PARENTS ARE WORRIED
Amanda Bynes may not think she’s mentally ill, but her parents do. Radaronline claims that Rick and Lynn Bynes are worried their daughter could be suffering from schizophrenia, and sources say this isn’t the first time she exhibited such troubling behavior. An insider says Rick and Lynn moved to California years ago to be closer to their daughter because, “since Amanda was a teenager, she exhibited distressing behavior.” The source claims she “heard voices” and was worried she was being “spied on via smoke alarms and clocks in her home.” Said the insider, “it’s an extremely sad situation because Amanda just refuses to get help.” Radar claims Rick and Lynn recently consulted with lawyers about getting a conservatorship over their 27-year-old daughter, but have been told it would be difficult.

I mean awesome,” he told TMZ. “There’s a lot of healing going on, this is only the beginning of the process and she has 60 more days. In everyone’s life there comes an epiphany and I guess it’s come upon her in some way shape or form. It’s time and I think she knows that.” But regardless of how well she’s doing, Michael is still determined to get Lindsay moved from Betty Ford. He claims they don’t do any one-on-one treatment, or trauma therapy, which Lindsay needs, and he wants her moved to the Lukens Institute in Palm Springs, CA.

BIEBER’S NO BABY DADDY
Justin Bieber’s reps are denying a Star magazine report that claims he got a 25-year-old woman pregnant when he was just 15. The tabloid says that back in February, 2010, Justin spent the night with an unidentified “European woman” whom he met at a South Beach T.G.I. Fridays. He invited her back to his room, where they had sex, and when she was back in Europe she realized she was pregnant. She reportedly never told Justin about the baby, which was a girl.

LEVINE EXPLAINS COUNTRY DISS
When Adam Levine lost two contestants on Tuesday’s The Voice, he was heard saying “I hate this country,” because Blake Shelton’s three contestants remained.

But the Maroon 5 frontman took to the social networking site yesterday to insist he was only joking when he made his comments. “joke- noun 1. something said or done to provoke laughter or cause amusement, as a witticism, a short and amusing anecdote, or prankish act,” he tweeted, followed by “hu·mor·less (hymr-ls) adj. 1. Lacking a sense of humor. 2. Said or done without humor.” He also tweeted the definitions of “light-hearted” and “misunderstand.” He then told Us Weekly, “I obviously love my country very much and my comments last night were made purely out of frustration. Being a part of The Voice, I am passionately invested in my team and want to see my artists succeed. Last night's elimination of Judith and Sarah was confusing and downright emotional for me and my comments were made based on my personal dissatisfaction with the results."

Making matters worse, last year, a VS booker named Sophia Neophitou insulted Upton in the New York Times, saying, “We would never use Kate . . .

J.LO TOO RACY FOR BRITAIN’S GOT TALENT

The former American Idol judge was performing on the program Tuesday and wore a tiny black leotard that barely covered her famous bum, which seemed to outrage the public. Broadcasting regulator Ofcom confirmed they received complaints from viewers, many of whom took to Twitter to voice their displeasure with J.Lo’s show of skin. “#BGT does #jenniferlopez realize its a family show - only thing missing was the pole - cover up your cheeks please!,” wrote one fan, while another added, “Think I have seen a little too much of Jennifer Lopez - meant to be a family show? #inappropriate #bgt.” Finally, another wrote, “Watching Jennifer Lopez was almost porn.”
MISS UNIVERSE CANADA CROWNS WRONG WINNER
Talk about a big mistake. Denise Garrido, who was crowned 2013’s Miss Universe Canada on Saturday, had her title taken away less than 24 hours later because of what’s being called a “typo.” According to Miss Universe Canada director Denis Davila, an error was made when an employee inputted the judges’ handwritten scores into a computer, which significantly affected the outcome. The real winner was Riza Santos, while Garrido actually finished in fourth. "My heart sank," Garrido told the Toronto Star. "I was so sad." The new winner calls her victory bittersweet, but adds, “I think it's unfortunate and hard to handle, but [Denise Garrido has] been very gracious and [is] handling it very well."
