With the recent investigation currently progressing, netizens have moved on their interest to the location where Lee Byunghun, Lee Jiyeon and GLAM’s Dahee met.

On September 10th, it was reported that netizens are curious as to where the alleged meeting in the said video clip took place. On initial reports, it was stated that the three met at Lee Byunghun’s house or at a certain club. However, police reports revealed a different finding and stated that the incident took place at Lee Jiyeon’s house.

Today, a representative from Lee Byunghun’s agency, stated a different story from the presented facts, claiming that the three were drinking at an Italian Restaurant instead, denying previous reports of it happening in any other location mentioned. The representative was quoted saying, “The women involved Lee Byunghun’s blackmailing scandal were mutual friends of junior. He has come to know them by being at the same Italian Restaurant as them,” claiming that the actor quickly left after.

As the contents of the video are still unverified pending to the investigation, netizens remain curious to the actual facts of the incident.

Lee Byunghun recently filed an attempted extortion case against GLAM’s Dahee and model Lee Jiyeon, as the two women blackmailed the actor for money in exchange of the obscene video clip in their possession.

Recent reports claim that if proven guilty, the two women will possibly face a $20,000 fine and ten years imprisonment.

A Detroit-area law firm has filed suit against the Four Tops, claiming the singing group owes it $109,000 in legal fees.

Sullivan, Ward, Asher & Patton filed the lawsuit in Oakland County Circuit Court.

According to The Detroit News (http://bit.ly/1h5A8si ), the Southfield firm says it has provided legal services on behalf of the Four Tops, but the group failed to pay an outstanding balance of $109,156.73.

Four Tops spokesman Matt Lee said Thursday he had no comment.

The group was a key member of the Motown Records family of artists during the Detroit label’s 1960s heyday.

Abdul “Duke” Fakir is the only original member still with the group. He’s named in the suit.

The Four Tops’ hits include “Reach Out, I’ll Be There” and “Baby I Need Your Loving.”

Fashion Designer Brian Lichtenberg Filed A $100 Million Federal Suit Against His Brother Christopher

Fashion designer Brian Lichtenberg has filed a $100 million federal suit against his brother Christopher, accusing the younger sibling of ripping off his products and waging a “highly destructive campaign to viciously malign . . . and interfere” with his business.

The suit comes as cheeky hipster clothing lines that parody high-fashion brands — for example, ball caps and T-shirts that read Commes des F - - k Down instead of Commes des Garçons, or Givraunchy rather than Givenchy — have become big business. Brian’s dispute is over gear with the words “Ballin” and “Ballin Paris” as a play on pricey Balmain. (His other “designer ­parodies” have included logos that spoof Hermès (Homiès), Céline (Féline) and Gucci (Bucci).

The LA suit claims Brian “came up with the original idea to create a parody logo for the designer Balmain,” and that he “would often use [Christopher] for a sounding board for his confidential . . . parody ideas” and hired him to work on graphic design and confidential mailing lists.

Brian’s customers have included stores Kitson and Colette, and Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus.

In court papers, Brian alleges that when Christopher’s own business, called Alex & Chloe, was struggling, “Christopher’s desperation for money caused him to set out to steal the ‘Ballin’ parody design.” And that Christopher “copied . . . confidential customer lists” and “represented to . . . people and companies in the fashion industry that his counterfeit ‘Ballin’ design was his original.”

(In a bizarre twist, the suit claims Christopher’s “drinking was spiraling out of control to the point that he created an alter ego known simply as ‘Stacey,’ that would come out from time to time when he had too much to drink.”)

Through power lawyer David Graziani, Brian’s suing for trademark infringement, unfair competition, defamation and other claims.

An Alex & Chloe rep said in an e-mail: “As we have always stated, the Ballin and Ballin Paris design is an Original design made by and for Alex & Chloe. The [designs were] NOT designed by Brian Lichtenberg. Accept no Imitations.”

Robin Thicke Files Lawsuit Over “Blurred Lines” Against Marvin Gaye’s “Got To Give It Up”

Sometimes, the best defense is an offense.

At least that’s the strategy that Robin Thicke, T.I and Pharrell Williams seem to be taking with their summer pop hit Blurred Lines.

An attorney for Thicke and collaborators Williams and Clifford Harris Jr (aka T.I.) filed a lawsuit Thursday, asking a federal judge to determine that their song Blurred Lines does not copy elements from two older songs from Marvin Gaye and Funkadelic (George Clinton).

This comes after Marvin Gaye’s family and Bridgeport Records’ alleged claims against the singers that the song sounds remarkably similar to Gaye’s Got To Give Up,demanding financial compensation for copyright infringement.

“Gaye defendants are claiming ownership of an entire genre, as opposed to a specific work,” the suit alleges.

Funkadelic, the George Clinton-led band that led the ’70s funk movement, has also allegedly claimed similarity between Thicke’s hit and Sexy Ways.

A copy of the suit obtained by The Hollywood Reporter reads:

“Plaintiffs, who have the utmost respect for and admiration of Marvin Gaye, Funkadelic and their musical legacies, reluctantly file this action in the face of multiple adverse claims from alleged successors in interest to those artists. Defendants continue to insist that plaintiffs’ massively successful composition, ‘Blurred Lines,’ copies ‘their’ compositions.”

JYY Wins Lawsuit Against Avex

January 18th, JYJ won their lawsuit against one of Japan’s biggest management company, Avex, after the agency attempted to stop the trio from holding a charity event in 2011.

Avex was ordered to pay 660 million yen by the Tokyo District Court, as well as an additional 1 million yen after the court recognized that Avex had slandered C-JeS’s CEO.

In 2009, JYJ filed an injunction against SM Entertainment, with whom they signed an exclusive contract with Avex Entertainment. Due to their injunction in South Korea, the relationship between JYJ and Avex became strained, and in September 2010, Avex released a notice stating that C-JeS’s CEO was affiliated with gangs, bringing about the halt of JYJ’s activities in Japan.

Since then, JYJ’s album releases in Japan has not been included in the Oricon Charts and the trio were limited to their promotional activities.

However, now that the Tokyo District Court has ruled in JYJ’s favor, stating that Avex is to no longer interfere with the trio’s activities, there is excitement among fans in Japan. JYJ is now free to resume their activities in the country.

JYJ’s return to Japan is expected to make the Hallyu Wave rise yet again as they are one of the hottest Korean artists in the country, having made their debut as part of TVXQ, breaking multiple records before their split.

Despite not having promoted as artists, JYJ’s appearances in Korean dramas has garnered a still hot fan base in Japan. Park Yoochun’s acting has been receiving good responses from fans in Japan.

On the other hand, Avex recently posted on Avex Group that they do not agree with the Tokyo District Court’s rulings and is preparing to appeal. According to, Koreaboo.

According to London Standard Evening,  Tito Jackson’s daughter Tanay Jackson thinks grandmother is too old for guardianship.  Jackson says that her 82-year-old grandmother is not the right person to take care of Michael’s 3 children.

She said: “I don’t think she should raise the kids. I understand that she is attached to them and she has been raising them and that’s probably why she still wants to have a little bit more involvement.”

Taryll Jackson, the middle of Tito’s three boys, denied Tanay is even his half-sister.  “Tanay Jackson is NOT related to us.”

I’ve never known Tito Jackson to date black Women. Tanay Jackson appears to be black. Who is her mother?
