Amy Winehouse has been arrested and taken into custody in connection with an alleged plan to derail a criminal case against her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil.
"A 24-year-old woman has been arrested by appointment at an East London police station," a police spokeswoman said, without naming Amy Winehouse.
"[The woman] is currently in custody. The arrest was in connection with an investigation into perverting the course of justice."
Amy Winehouse's U.S. representative confirmed the singer's arrest, saying: "I can confirm that she did go in voluntarily to be interviewed and was placed under arrest, as is common practice in the U.K., before being questioned."
The arrest of Amy Winehouse relates to a witness-tampering charge against husband Blake Fielder-Civil, 25, who's accused of assaulting a barman in June.
He is currently in jail awaiting trial. As is British custom, police do not publicly name people who are arrested - only if they are later charged with a crime.
Winehouse was forced to give fingerprints and a saliva swab to police, as "any person arrested is required to give both DNA and fingerprints," the police said.
Another source denied a recent News of the World report that Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil have a suicide pact if they both are put behind bars.
junkies birds of a strung-out feather really do OD flock together.
Now that her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, is in jail, Amy Winehouse seems to be spending more time with Pete Doherty - and her father is not happy.
In fact, seeing the often-arrested Babyshambles singer out with his daughter made dad Mitch Winehouse go berzerk, he admitted to Grazia magazine.
"I do worry about people like Pete Doherty. He's a scumbag," a distraught Mitch Winehouse said. "I flipped when I saw him sitting with Amy backstage at her Brixton gig. I went crazy. My wife thought I was going to have a heart attack."
Some sources reported that Pete Doherty was present when Amy Winehouse overdosed on drugs in August. Regardless, they are hanging out a lot nowadays.
The diminutive jazz-pop diva, 24, has struggled mightily since her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, was arrested for alleged witness tampering in November.
She also canceled all 2007 shows, and mother Janis Winehouse wrote an open letter published by the media, begging Amy to come home and get clean.
"I know the real problem here is that she's depressed about [Blake Fielder-Civil] being in prison," Mitch Winehouse said. "I wasn't in favor of the marriage, but they are married and I will support them. And he's shown while he's been in prison a level of maturity that he didn't have before."
While admitting to the magazine that Amy is "not very well," Mitch Winehouse said he can't force his daughter - who was recently nominated for six Grammy Awards for her smash hit album, Back to Black - into rehab.
"Believe me, my first instinct is to get hold of her, pick her up and take her back to my house and lock her away," he said. "But I've spoken to the finest drug counselors in the world, and they've said that is exactly the wrong thing to do."
The Hollywood Gossip would like to wish a very happy birthday to a trio of stars on this 18th of December: Brad Pitt, Katie Holmes and Christina Aguilera!
Brad Pitt was born in Shawnee, Oklamoma, back in 1963, while Katie Holmes came into this cruel world in Toledo, Ohio, in 1978, and Christina Aguilera was welcomed by her Staten Island, N.Y., parents on this day in 1980.
These three beautiful celebrities have enjoyed enormous success in the arenas of movies, TV and music, but in the past year, each has become known as much for their role as parents - or parents-to-be - as for their respective careers!
Katie Holmes gave birth to daughter Suri Cruise in 2006, while Aguilera and her husband, Jordan Bratman (pictured), will welcome their first child in January.
Which a biological daughter in Shiloh and three adopted youngsters in Pax Thien, Maddox and Zahara, the Brangelina Brood is a formidable one.
Happy birthday to Katie, X-tina and Brad! We know the latter won't don his birthday suit on film anymore, but Angelina Jolie will be seein' Brad Pitt nude tonight!
Remember Kristin Cavallari, the original Laguna Beach alpha girl? Well, she has become a thing of the past as Lauren Conrad and her Laguna spin-off, The Hills, became a sensation. But it looks like we haven't seen the last of Kristin yet.
This morning, E! Online reports that Cavallari was spotted entering the NBC Universal building today for a casting meeting for Lipstick Jungle (the new drama / comedy starring Lindsay Price, Brooke Shields and Kim Raver).
Oh, and wait, it gets even better. According to inside sources close to The Hills, the show's producers are looking into the possibility of bringing Kristin on board to reunite with Lauren Conrad. Take a minute to let that sink in.
Will Kristin Cavallari appear on The Hills with Lauren Conrad ?
Not surprisingly, according to insiders, Lauren is less than thrilled with the idea of Kristin coming onto her show, possibly due to their previous high school love triangle involving that two-timing punk (and hottie) Stephen Colletti.
Of course, as Heidi Montag can attest, a scuffle with Lauren can also make for very good TV - scripted or not - and seriously high ratings.
But Kristin Cavallari even want to be on The Hills? After Laguna Beach, she said she was leaving reality TV behind in order to focus on a real acting career. But with The Hills' huge success in the past year, perhaps she would reconsider.
Tell us, fans: Team Lauren or Team Kristin? And do you want KC to be back together with LC for some old-fashioned, Laguna-style drama on The Hills?
Although Lauren Conrad had a heart-to-heart with Brody Jenner and admitted romantic feelings for him before leaving for Paris on The Hills season 3 finale, the 21-year-old reality star may have found a new love interest in France?
According to the New York Post, Lauren Conrad reportedly "hooked up" with a member from the popular band Rock & Roll while she was in Paris, where she and Teen Vogue counterpart Whitney Port were working at the Crillon Ball.
Eight bonus episodes of The Hills will chronicle this next spring.
"Lauren was filmed riding off with the guitar player, Matthias, on the back of his bike," a source told the Post. "They hooked up."
For those who are unfamiliar with the new rock band, their biggest hit so far is the song "Loser, Boozer, Jacuzzi-User."
Did The Hills' Lauren Conrad find love in Paris?
Of course, as you might expect, nothing is quite what it seems in The Hills - the New York Post reports that producers had actually arranged for both LC and Whitney to be set up with the band even before the two girls flew to Paris.
"[The producers] were frantically calling publicists to see if anyone knew any guys to set the girls up with in Paris," the Post reports. "They felt that if they had some sort of love affair there, then it would look better."
While The Hills producers have previously admitted to re-filming certain scenes, a show rep declined to comment on the Paris trip.
Speculations that The Hills is scripted have surrounded the show, and creator Adam Divello admitted that some scenarios a "a little fake." However, Divello clarified that "all the relationships and dramas are the characters' own making."
The Hills cast members have also come to the show's defense. Before the finale, Whitney Port told the New York Daily News that "it's completely real."
"All the drama and mishaps that happen between everybody is what's going on in their lives today," Whitney Port said. "At certain points, maybe our mics get messed up or, you know, we don't have confessionals, so at certain points we might say something, but the story and everything is completely true to life."
Kevin Federline's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, is going to court today to send a message to Britney Spears - there are going to be serious consequences when you party the same night you say you're "too sick" and "anxious" for court.
If you recall, last week Spears did not show for her mandatory court deposition but later that night, she cruised around (in no pants), hitting up two gas stations and her home away from home, the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills.
Today's hearing in the custody case is all about that night. From what TMZ and other sources are reporting, Mark Vincent Kaplan may ask the judge to prevent Brit from regaining any custody until she gives her deposition.
Mark Vincent Kaplan is seriously pissed at Britney Spears.
In the ongoing battle over Sean Preston and Jayden James, Mark Vincent Kaplan and K-Fed may also try and block Britney Spears' lawyers from taking depositions on the Federline side of the aisle until their client actually takes the oath.
In our opinion, Kaplan should also consider subpoenaing Sam Lutfi. Not sure if that has any sort of relevance to the custody case, but that dude is real sketchy.
The incomparable Brody Jenner nearly missed a scheduled appearance at Chicago nightclub Enclave Saturday night - yes, he gets paid to appear at nightclubs - after he got booted from a flight shortly before takeoff in Dallas.
An A.A. spokesperson said several passengers, including Brody Jenner, did not comply with flight attendant's requests to turn off electronic devices.
They became verbally abusive toward the flight attendants and were removed from the plane by airport police. Where are The Hills cameras when you need 'em!
American Airlines to Brody Jenner: Turn off the damn iPhone!
No charges were filed against Jenner and his pals, which surely included Brody's "manager" Frankie Delgado. The gang later got an ATA flight to the Windy City, where Brody told partygoers, "I guess I won't be flying American Again!"
His powers of deductive reasoning are amazing. The young Jenner has always been a smart one. Lauren Conrad had no comment. That we know of.
Actress Katherine Heigl can't wait for her wedding day this coming Sunday - if only so that the marathon planning sessions will finally come to an end.
The Grey's Anatomy star told Extra that she's more than ready for her big day, albeit a little nervous. So basically, she's like any bride-to-be.
"We've talked a lot about it, like, 'Are you having any second thoughts? And [her fiance Josh Kelley] is like, 'No, I'm so ready for this to happen.' It's already been 18 months of planning, and we're both just ready for this to happen already."
The last-minute arrangements are proving to be hair-raising, however.
"I'm mostly panicking about all the many details, and getting there, traveling, transportation, talking to the pastor, getting the license," she says.
Her worst wedding-day fear? "Not being present in the moment, you know? Like, building it up so much you can't really enjoy the moment you're in."
Katherine Heigl will be a married woman in five days!
Once the wedding is over, the Golden Globe nominee and her musician groom may very well embark on a different kind of planning - for having kids.
"I'm super excited to start a family," Katherine Heigl said. "I've always wanted a family, a large family. But I say that now!"
Katherine stars in the upcoming romantic comedy 27 Dresses, opening January 11. She won raves for her portrayal of Alison in Knocked Up, in which she and Seth Rogen conceived a child. What about having kids in real life?
In a separate interview with Entertainment Tonight, Heigl says she wants to be a mom in a year's time. Josh Kelley, though, is pushing for two years.
Says the prospective mother-to-be: "We'll meet somewhere in the middle."
The NBC sci-fi smash Heroes was shut out of the Golden Globe nominations last week, but Milo Ventimiglia believes it can rebound from its second season slump.
"For the most part, people still walk up to you with smiles on their faces saying, 'I love it. I love it,'" the 30-year-old star tells Entertainment Weekly.
"Occasionally, you get somebody who kinda looks at you and thinks, 'Eh, first season was better, but I still watch you guys. You're doing pretty good.'"
What does the handsome Milo Ventimiglia tell those fans?
"As a person that's on the show as well as a fan of the show ... I'm hoping we get back to the feeling of the first season," he says.
Other fans recognize Milo Ventimiglia from his earlier roles on Gilmore Girls and American Dreams. The certified hunk has built quite a following.
"I get it all," Ventimiglia said. "When people call me Chris Pierce from American Dreams, it definitely gets a big smile from me."
As for the entire cast's recent Golden Globes snub, Milo Ventimiglia says that's just added motivation for the talented ensemble that works on Heroes.
"I think it's one of those things that's going to make us work harder, make us be a little more focused," he says. "I remember when we didn't win [last year], I turned to the table and raised my glass and said, 'It's a pleasure and a privilege to work with you guys.' We all kind of bonded over that."
In other Heroes news, Milo's friend Hayden Panettiere is ridiculously cute... and Ali Larter just got engaged to Hayes MacArthur!
