According to New York Post,  Singer Pink has undergone surgery to have her gall bladder taken out in LA. A rep for the 32-year-old pop star said, “Pink had her gall bladder removed and is out of the hospital recovering nicely.” But the singer didn’t have any kind words for the lost organ. Pink wrote on Twitter, “F-YOU gall bladder! SAYONARA!!!!!!!”

She had good reason to be annoyed, having had to cancel a performance on Wednesday night at a Hollywood fund-raiser for President Obama.

She was also forced to celebrate her daughter Willow Sage’s first birthday in the hospital on June 2. Pink later tweeted: “So now I have let down my daughter and the president. wow. great week.”

According to AP/9 News,  Singer Lauryn Hill has been charged with failing to file income tax returns for several years.

Hill earned more than $US1.6 million during 2005, 2006 and 2007, the three years she allegedly failed to file returns, the US Attorney’s office in New Jersey said on Thursday.

Hill’s primary source of income is royalties from the recording and film industries, prosecutors said.

She also owns and operates four corporations: Creations Music, Inc, Boogie Tours, Inc, L H Productions 2001, Inc and Studio 22, Inc, according to court papers.

The 37-year-old Hill got her start with The Fugees and began her solo career in 1998 with the critically acclaimed album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.

The album, praised by critics for its incisive lyrics and synthesis of rap and soul, sold eight million copies.

She then largely disappeared from public view to raise her six children, five of whom she had with Rohan Marley, the son of famed reggae singer Bob Marley.

Hill lives in South Orange, a suburb just west of Newark, New Jersey, and had attended Columbia High School in Maplewood.

Hill is scheduled to appear in court on June 29.

Accoding to The London Standard,  Multi-millionaire couple Ben and Kate Goldsmith today said they “regretted” embarking on a bitter Twitter war and hinted their impending divorce would be settled amicably.

The pair were locked in a bitter war of words on the social networking site making claims and counter claims against each other following revelations that the 29-year-old Rothschild heiress had an affair with rising US hip-hop star Jay Electronica.

Lawyers had warned the increasingly acrimonious public spat could have a detrimental impact on either party’s potential divorce settlement. Even Electronica — real name Timothy Elpadaro Thedford — was tweeting about the row and posted an image he took of Kate.

And today the couple issued a joint statement blaming “high emotions” for the outbursts which they acknowledged should have been kept private.

They said: “We are both deeply saddened that our marriage has ended after nine years.“It is a matter of regret to us that, at a time when our emotions and those of our friends have run high, things have been said in public which should have been kept private. We accept our full share of responsibility for this.

“Contrary to what has been publicly stated, neither of us anticipates any major issues of contention to arise in the divorce, in which the interests of our children will come first.

“There will be no further comment, either directly or indirectly, from us on any aspect of our family’s private life.”

The online spat began when Mr Goldsmith branded his wife’s behaviour “appalling” after police were called to their Kensington home following a row after she confessed the affair.

He also accused her of caring more about her reputation than her children, ridiculing her for hiring a PR firm to deal with the fall-out.

Mrs Goldsmith has also been accused of dragging her children into the row by posting a picture on Twitter of them disembarking from a private jet which was “liked” by Jay Electronica.

Yesterday she took to Twitter to launch an impassioned defence of her behaviour.

In a series of extraordinary tweets, she said her “life had been saved” by the rapper, implied the story was being spun against her, accused her husband of cheating and being “irrational”, and said she was responding to the “vultures” taunting her.

She wrote: “All of you should go home and question whether you are really in a position to judge and condemn and then get on with fixing your own lives. Ben in a rational mood would be the first to say that my devotion to my children is unshakeable. I am with them now, as I always am.

“I have been with my husband since I was 17 years old, my whole life from then until now has been dedicated to him and our children.

Our marriage went bad a few years ago and none of you have any idea what I went through along with my husband. Then we separated for a while, anger and bitterness following that time led to a very one sided story being deliberately released in order to shame and hurt me.

“This is the darkest time of my life.” A later tweet said: “As for Jay Electronica … he saved my life in many ways and I am eternally grateful to him.”

Many of the couple’s messages on Twitter have now been deleted.

Friends also leapt to her defence. One, Joy Bellfahy, wrote: “Kate you are one of the most dedicated and wonderful Mothers I’ve ever known and I know a lot of them xxxx.”

The heiress is understood to have met the 35-year-old rapper last autumn.

She has been managing the star in her role as record producer, but Mr Goldsmith became suspicious of the time the pair were spending together.

Mr Goldsmith is on holiday in Sicily with his mother, Lady Annabel, while his wife is understood to be with the children in London at the family home, which has recently been put on the market for £20 million.

The rapper’s family in New Orleans refused to discuss the relationship.
