As if a crazy stalker trespassing on her property wasn't enough, a man has been arrested after jumping on stage during Britney Spears' latest Circus concert.

The venue was Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut.

Connecticut State Police say Kyle King, 20, who had definitely been drinking, charged on stage during Britney's encore performance of "Womanizer."

Security and Britney Spears' backup dancers accosted King before he could come in contact with her, and he was arrested for breach of peace.

The CSP says after Kyle King was taken into custody, he was being highly uncooperative - so they also booked him for interfering with police.

He was released this morning after paying a $250 bond and is due in Norwich Superior Court on June 18. It was definitely worth it, right Kyle?

Check out the video of the incident below, in which Britney Spears freaks out and the grinds to screeching halt after seeing King on stage.

Pay attention around the 2:10 mark ...

Follow the jump for another angle, in which you can see how fast her security and dancers sprung into action. Blink and you might even miss it:

Celebrity gossip photographers are going to have to bust out the long lenses if they want to get the money shot of Amy Winehouse from now on.

The 25-year-old "Rehab" singer has won a court order preventing celeb news personnel from snapping photographs outside her north London home.

Photographers are now banned from approaching Winehouse within 100 yards of the house. The injunction is hanging outside her home in Enfield.

However, all is never well in Amy Winehouse's world - she was hospitalized for "dehydration" on Friday in St. Lucia, where she's been on "vacation."

  • Rehab Regular
  • Young Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse now, and in her younger days. Just saying.

Her spokesman confirms that Winehouse, who is scheduled to perform at the annual jazz festival in St. Lucia next week, spent the night in the hospital.

She was taken there after fainting and becoming exhausted.

He said that prior to passing out and being hospitalized, Amy Winehouse was "running around with children" and "failed to drink enough water."

That's what they call it now?

In an interview this morning on CBS' The Early Show, Malawi native James Kambewa is again voicing his opposition to pop superstar Madonna's efforts to adopt his three-year-old daughter, Chifundo "Mercy" James.

"I want to take care of her and I'm capable to take care of my baby," says Kambewa, who is only 15 himself. "Mercy, she is a Malawian - so [I] need her to grow as a Malawian, as well with our culture."

In the CBS interview, Kambewa is wearing a necklace he made bearing his daughter’s name but says has never held or even met her in person.

The little girl's birth mother died shortly after childbirth.

Lucy Chekechiwa, Mercy’s maternal grandmother, says she, too, was initially opposed to the adoption but eventually gave in. Madonna was negged in her efforts by the country's government, however, before filing an appeal.

“I did not want my granddaughter to be adopted,” Lucy says, “but because they have been persistent enough, I have been forced to let my granddaughter go."

Madonna will make her appeal before Malawi's Chief Justice Lovemore Munlo. In April, a judge rejected the 50-year-old superstar's adoption request because she doesn't meet the minimum 18-month residency requirement.

Here's hoping Jesus Luz will comfort her if she fails again.

Rande Gerber, husband of Cindy Crawford, is being sued for sexual harassment by two women who used to work for him. A lawsuit was filed in March in San Diego County Superior Court by a pair of former employees of the business mogul.

The women, both waitresses, claim they were fired from a restaurant owned by Gerber's company for refusing to give in to the advances of Gerber and other managers.

Cindy C.

On one occasion in 2008, while working at the Moonstone Lounge in San Diego, one claims Rande Gerber "attempted to kiss her three times during the night, then put his hand up her dress in between her legs in an attempt to fondle her crotch."

"These allegations were previously investigated and shown to be baseless," a Gerber Group spokesperson said in a statement. "This lawsuit has no merit."

Gerber owns the Midnight Oil chain of bars and lounges. He and Crawford, who have been married 11 years, have two children, Presley, 9, and Kaia, 7.

If he jeopardized a future of seeing Cindy Crawford nude by hitting on random waitresses, Rande Gerber would pretty much be the biggest moron ever.

Well, except for Eliot Spitzer.

Even though Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt's wedding only took place a week ago now, there's already talk of the gruesome twosome starting a family.

"Heidi wants four boys," new sister-in-law Stephanie Pratt told Us at the grand opening of Catch Boutique in L.A. "Imagine ... four Spencer Pratts!"

Yes. Imagine.

Does Spencer's sister, who was a bridesmaid in The Hills wedding event along with Holly Montag, think that Heidi Montag will make a good mom?

"Yeah, she's really good with our niece," Stephanie said, referring to Ava, the flower girl at Speidi's wedding. "They're [both] kid lovers."

Stephanie Pratt, who said she had never been to a wedding before Spencer and Heidi's Saturday nuptials, thought the ceremony was "wonderful."

"It was the most - I didn’t think they could be that beautiful," she said, adding that her absolute favorite moment of the evening was, "for me, it was walking down the aisle - which wasn’t that long of an aisle - and I felt so nervous!"

"I had to walk slow, but I was running down it and crying, with my brother laughing at me because I could not keep it together. I’ll never forget that."

Even Steph and Spencer's parents, Skip and Janet Pratt, got choked up.

"They’ve always loved Heidi," she said. "My mom was very emotional. He’s her only boy."

Truly, so touching. We can't wait to watch it unfold on The Hills' finale. Don't forget to give us your funniest Speidi jokes in our Caption Contest.

Since Chris Brown's arrest in February, his normally loquacious attorney, Mark Geragos, has said nary a word about how he plans to defend Brown against charges that he punched, choked and threatened to kill his pop star girlfriend, Rihanna.

But comments by the attorney in court Wednesday suggest part of the strategy might be attacking police for the leak of a photo of Rihanna's bruised face.

The defense lawyer told a judge he planned to request information about possible police misconduct or bias and mentioned by name an appellate court ruling that provides defendants access to files in internal police investigations.

Geragos' remarks seemed a clear reference to the probe sparked by TMZ's posting of a photo consistent with Rihanna pictures taken by police that night.

LAPD investigators have been interviewing their own officers and scouring computers for two months - so far in vain - in an effort to determine if someone inside the agency sold or gave the photo to the celebrity gossip website.

Is Chris Brown's lawyer's apparent strategy of focusing on this haunting, leaked Rihanna photo relevant to his client's defense - or a shameless, distracting ploy?

With a preliminary hearing date now set for May 28, Geragos' actions indicate he may seek to have the case thrown out over the photo at that time.

Whether he proves effective or not, the attorney's focusing on the photo's leak would most definitely compound the LAPD's embarrassment over the apparent failure to safeguard evidence in a case that has attracted world attention.

A state law makes it a misdemeanor for officers or law enforcement employees to profit by leaking confidential reports or images. Police Chief William J. Bratton promised "a very painful experience" for any LAPD employee found to be involved.

"We are still following leads and the case is far from closed," said Deputy Chief Mark Perez, head of the LAPD's Professional Standards Bureau.

Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin split a few months ago. That we saw coming.

What we could not have predicted was the unwed teenage baby daddy turning into a complete media slut, talking to every TV show that will take him and throwing Bristol and her mom, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, under the bus.

According to a report in the National Enquirer, Bristol Plain is getting a bit fed up with the act - and wants to keep their baby, Tripp, away from him.

"What Bristol is doing amounts to emotional blackmail," says a source close to the previously engaged couple. "She no longer wants Levi in her life and she's been threatening to have him cut out of their newborn son Tripp's life."

Levi, along with his drug-dealing mother Sherry and sister Mercede, appeared on Larry King Live on April 22 to discuss the ongoing feud they're having with the former Republican candidate for Vice President and her family.

According to a source, the escalating feud between former lovers Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston is very ... well, high school. They are just 18 and 19, after all.

"Bristol holds a grudge against Mercede because some of her friends dated Levi. The girls meant nothing to Levi, but Bristol wouldn't accept that."

"The irony is that Bristol stole Levi from her childhood best friend, Lanesia Garcia, who dated Levi for almost three years before Bristol did!"

Levi has said throughout his media tour that he is not allowed to take his 4-month-old son out of the Palin home. Both Levi and his mom confirmed to King that they've retained lawyers to help Levi battle for custody of his child.

Levi also admitted he isn't paying Bristol Palin child support, but denies he's a deadbeat dad, saying: "I have everything my boy needs back home."

Bristol is said to be stunned that Levi is fighting back publicly.

"Bristol constantly threatens Levi, telling him that if he keeps up these publicity stunts she won't let him see Tripp," said the source.

"In the end, she'll have to do to whatever a judge decides. Her mother may be governor, but Levi has a right to see his son, like it or not!"

Octomom Nadya Suleman has been confronted by social services, cops, lawyers the media and countless critics for her antics of the past several months.

While some instant celebrities like Carrie Prejean are polarizing figures, there's simply no debate when it comes to Octomom: she's America's Most Hated.

Octomom on the Horn

Even her own mom is getting in on the action.

"How did this happen?" Angela Suleman demanded of her daughter, holding up the front page of the local newspaper featuring an article on local social services and cops visiting Nadya's house, in a video captured by Radar Online.

On Wednesday, the La Habra Police Department and Social Services of Orange County stopped by the Octo-residence to investigate a claim of neglect.

Nadya Suleman's son Kaleb, 3 - she has six kids in addition to the octuplets born in January - showed up at school with bite marks, raising red flags.

The mother-daughter - who have had a contentious relationship - bickered back and forth outside her house with Nadya cutting her off, yelling "I'm talking!"

"This is stupid," the drain on society said. "Social workers even said, 'This has been a false allegation, but thank you for being so open and transparent.'"

"My child got bitten by my two-year-old," Nadya said.

Back on tape, Octomom ranted: "CPS is on my side. Nothing happened to Kaleb. He got bitten by Aidan. He has meltdowns, he slams his face on the ground. Especially when one is autistic, they will slam themselves."

What a mess. Follow the link for Radar's video of the affair.

Casey Aldridge, boyfriend of Jamie Lynn Spears and father to her 10-month-old baby, has been released from a Mississippi hospital, just five days after flipping over in his pickup truck while partying with friends at a late-night bachelor party.

"Casey got home today, and he's doing well," a source tells People. "He'll have to rest for the next few weeks. He's still got a headache, but everything looks good."

Aldridge, who celebrated his 20th birthday Thursday, was taken to a small, rural hospital in Vidalia, La., and later transferred to the larger University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, where he spent time in the ICU.

He suffered a head injury that, while significant, ultimately required no surgery and apparently caused no permanent damage, the source says.

Jamie Lynn Spears has been at his side since the incident, even riding in the ambulance with Aldridge on the way to the Mississippi hospital.

"They're both at the house in Liberty (Miss.)," the source says. Spears' mother, Lynne, has been keeping the couple's baby, Maddie Briann, "for most of the time during this whole episode, but I guess the baby will be going back home."

"Now Jamie Lynn will have two babies to care for."

Casey Aldridge had been attending a bachelor party for one of his cousins who is getting married next week. He is the best man, "but I don't know if he'll be up to that or not. We'll just have to wait and see," the source says.

Having vacationed there for most of this year so far, Amy Winehouse may be looking to stay in St. Lucia for good, according to recent reports.

The troubled singer has been a fixture on the Caribbean island as she tries to escape her chaotic and often drug fuelled life in London.

The result? A vacation album for all time.

The Sun (UK) claims she is having so much fun, she now wants to make the move permanent by buying property on the holiday isle.

A source told them: “Amy is fed up with all the stress and trauma that comes with being in London... She has made so many friends in St. Lucia and says it feels like home. When she returned to the UK in March she felt like a total outsider.”

Amy Winehouse partakes in water sports in St. Lucia.

Amy was recently joined in St. Lucia by her father, Mitch Winehouse. The two have been scoping out properties, looking for the best fit for her.

This move is for the best. With Blake Fielder-Civil dating Francesca Morralee and knocking up Gilleen Morris, there's little for her back home.

Sadly, an extended stay on the island means there's no chance of Amy delivering a third album soon, but we abandoned hope of that long ago anyway, and if Lost has taught us anything, it's that when destiny calls, you must heed.
