Justin Bieber's rise in America produced a slew of European wannabes who try to sing like him and look like him — and even change their stage names to Bieber. One emulated the real Bieber’s bad side — and ended up in serious trouble.
Belgium's Chris Bieber is in deep legal doodoo — at a time when Justin Bieber's Miami DUI case is about to come back to the forefront of the news again.
Chris, 19, is facing a manslaughter charge in a tribunal in the eastern part of Belgium. He is accused of drag racing a friend’s Porsche on the country's notoriously dangerous roads. He crashed the sports car into the back of a truck, killing his 11-year-old brother in the passenger’s seat.
Chris Bieber survived the April 2013 accident but now faces up to two years in a prison without parole and a five-year license suspension.
Doesn't end there. Last year Chris Bieber, who put out music that could be considered Justin Bieber lite, was also accused of selling online fake tickets to Beyoncé and One Direction concerts. A judge is scheduled to render his judgment at the end of the manslaughter trial April 29, a week before Justin Bieber's DUI and drag racing trial is scheduled to start in Miami.
Hollywood action hero Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson should be moving into this new mansion outside Fort Lauderdale by summer, and we’ve got the first photo of the new crib.
The wrestler-turned-star of blockbusters such as Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and Fast & Furious 7 agreed at Christmas to pay $4.5 million for the 13,700-square-foot, five-bedroom, six-car garage house at the gated Landmark Ranch Estates in Southwest Ranches.
The house, Pietra D'Oro (golden stone in Italian), sits on 2.5 acres of prime land and already boasts a $300,000 gym.
Miami Heat Assistant Coach Juwan Howard has moved some real estate over the past two years.
Records show he sold a vacant piece of land on Old Cutler Road and his apartment on Brickell Key in Miami, in addition to buying a mansion in Coral Gables at Christmas.
Howard, a former member of University of Michigan’s Fab 5 and a former Heat player, lost his shirt on the 3.5 acres on Old Cutler, losing $1.7 million in the sale seven years after he bought it for $11.7 million.
However, he made almost $900,000 last week when he sold his 46th-floor penthouse at Three Tequesta Point on Brickell Key.
The former center sold the condo after paying $3.4 million for a single-family house in Coral Gables.
Rabble-rouser Alan Rigerman has sued two businesses bearing the name of wheelchair-bound football icon Don Shula in federal court.
Rigerman is suing the Don Shula Athletic Club and Don Shula’s Hotel & Golf Club in Miami Lakes because, Rigerman claims, they are not compliant with the Americans With Disabilities Act.
Rigerman, who has a disability walks with a cane, says he wants to “enjoy” both facilities but can’t. He wants better access from the handicapped parking spots to the front doors of the facilities, and better markings.
The athletic club and the hotel are owned by The Graham Companies, which were founded by the family of former Gov. Bob Graham. They have yet to file an answer.
