    Justin Bieber, Modern Day Princess Diana, Strikes Back at a Citizen Paparazzo

    Today in celebrity gossip: Justin Bieber created a scene at Dave & Buster's and later compared himself to Princess Diana, plus Miley Cyrus' homeless VMA date is in trouble with the law, and Kim Kardashian no longer wants to be friends with Beyoncé.

The seething tensions have underscored deepening divisions in a city that Israel claims as its "indivisible capital". Damage caused by Palestinians to a Jerusalem light railway, which links Arab and Jewish neighborhoods and was once hailed by Israeli authorities as a symbol of coexistence, put a third of its carriages out of commission.

  • COUPLE WEIGHS RECONCILIATION FIVE YEARS AFTER VIOLENT SPLIT

    DEAR ABBY: Five years ago, my husband got drunk and physically attacked me in front of his family. It was horrible. I was in shock, and our relationship never recovered. The next four years were a series of court visits for custody of our child and eventually a divorce. Last year, his mother began requesting visits with our son. I was happy about it because I have tried to be accommodating to my ex and his family regarding our son.
