Deongelo Holmes, one half of the rap duo Ying Yang Twins, was arrested.

Holmes got popped last week for marijuana possession and DUI.

According to the Gwinnett County Police report ... when the arrest took place on June 1 in Duluth, Ga., Deongelo's eyes were "bloodshot and glazed" and his speech was "mumbled, slurred and slow." Always good signs when one is driving.

Holmes was also booked for child endangerment ... because his two kids, ages 3 and 2 months, were in the car at the time, but at least after he failed a field sobriety test, authorities say Holmes was "cooperative and friendly" with officers.

The Ying Yang Twins had a 2005 hit with "Wait (The Whisper Song)."

In more recent, tragic Atlanta hip-hop news, Lil Phat was killed.

Creflo Dollar, the Megachurch pastor and televangelist who has faced criticism over the years for his flamboyant lifestyle, was arrested today after allegedly injuring his 15-year old daughter in a fight.

Authorities from the Fayette County Sheriff's department responded to a call of domestic violence at approximately 1 a.m., according to investigator Brent Rowan, who added that the religious man and his daughter were arguing over whether the latter could go to a party when Dollar "got physical" with her, resulting in "superficial injuries" on the teenager.

Dollar - faces misdemeanor counts of simple battery and cruelty to children - left jail this morning on bail and said in a statement:

"As a father I love my children and I always have their best interest at heart at all times, and I would never use my hand to ever cause bodily harm to my children. The facts in this case will be handled privately to further protect my children. My family thanks you for your prayers and continued support."

Michigan model Melissa Stetten did more than just make idle conversation with actor Brian Presley aboard a red eye flight the other night.

Stetten live Tweeted Presley's advances - his hilarious, alleged advances - and her Tweets went viral, given that he's married with a kid.

The publicly, devoutly sober Presley supposedly had three beers, too, but that's just her side of the story, and it's wrong, he claims.

Melissa Stetten and Brian Presley

On Friday, Presley, who stars in Touchback with Kurt Russell, posted a note to his Facebook page denying the entire alleged incident.

"I took a red eye flight to NY, had a 10-minute friendly conversation with the person sitting next to me, had some food, and went to sleep!"

He continued: "I learned today this person has been tweeting about me drinking beer in the airplane bathroom, and trying to commit adultery with her on the airplane."

"Really absurd and quite funny!"

"None of what this person said happened is true," Brian went on. "I guess in today's age you have to be careful who you say hello too. Sobriety, God, & My Family are the most important things in my life!"

Regardless, Stetten's in-flight narration caused quite a stir.

Heading into this season, America's Got Talent assumed the hiring of Howard Stern would be its most controversial move.

Then Timothy Poe happened.

The contestant is under major fire for lying about his experience in Afghanistan, as Poe claimed during his audition that he suffered a brain injury from an explosion in 2009, but he has no evidence of this occurrence and the photo he provided to AGT of himself in combat has been debunked as someone else.

But Poe did move on to the next round and is scheduled to be featured in Las Vegas next week. What's a reality competition to do?

TMZ says producers will "definitely" edit down footage a bit, but it's unclear whether they will axe Poe altogether.

"I was blown away that I was totally taken in," Howie Mandell says of the act. "I'm really angry with the guy."

What do you think America's Got Talent should do? Should Timothy Poe be disqualified?

Jenny McCarthy made headlines today when she surprisingly revealed that her ex, actor Jim Carrey, isn't quite as serious about the 10-year-old.

"I've tried to ask (Jim) numerous times (to see Evan), because he still asks," McCarthy told Howard Stern, adding that Evan asks about Jim "almost weekly."

“As a mother, you just hope when you have a relationship with someone, it has nothing to do with the child when you break up,” she said.

”I tell [Evan] that someday you’ll cross paths, meet again … [but] it’s hard. He’s been in therapy. It’s a process, he’s working on it.”

Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy

McCarthy, 39, who is currently dating Brian Urlacher and will be posing nude in Playboy this year, dated Carrey, 50, for five years. They split in 2010.

Evan's father is John Mallory Asher, who Jenny was married to from 1999-2005. As for Carrey, he was far from pleased that Jenny made this public.

Carrey said, "I will always do what I believe is in the best interest of Evan's well being. It's unfortunate that Evan's privacy is not being considered."

"I love Evan very much and will miss him always."

It's pretty clear from Jim's brief statement that he acknowledges he doesn't see the boy, though he does not explain why - probably by design.

One theory (and it's just a theory) is that he feels it would be more harmful to the boy if he comes in and out of his life, so he's cut ties altogether.

Officials say Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose was robbed of three gold-and-diamond necklaces worth over $200,000 after the hard rock band's concert in Paris.

A Paris police spokesman said that the lead singer of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band - Axl declined the Hall of Fame induction - was fuming after the theft.

Whoever robbed Axl Rose is believed to have done so during a private gathering after the band's show at Bercy stadium the previous night, the police said.

Axl Rose should really have a cameo in Rock of Ages.

Judicial police have opened an investigation but the spokesman said it didn't appear that Rose was wearing the necklaces at the time his bling was pilfered.

The spokesman spoke on condition of anonymity because of office policy.

The GNR website says that they are scheduled to play in Moenchengladbach, Germany, before returning to France as part of a tour of Europe and Israel.

The tour runs through July 22. Use the safe between now and then, Ax.

After a week or two of relative quiet, the John Travolta sex scandal has exploded again with a new report that the actor had a six-year gay affair with his pilot.

Travolta and Doug Gotterba were lovers in the 1980s, according to Travolta’s former secretary and Gotterba’s ex boyfriend, who spilled to the National Enquirer.

We know, we know, it's the Enquirer. Grain of salt. But 1) these are just the latest in a LONG string of people alleging similar things, and 2) Rielle Hunter.

Joan Edwards was Travolta’s secretary from 1978-1994 and is the first ex-employee to publicly say the actor is gay - a surprisingly common revelation of late.

“I did everything for him, including taking care of his personal and professional schedules. Of course I knew he was gay. It never bothered me,” she said.

Carrie Fisher has also said John Travolta is gay. Edwards says specifically, she knew of Travolta's affair with Gotterba, who began working for him in 1981. 

"That's how I met Doug. We both worked for John at the same time. Doug is a wonderful guy and we are still good friends," she told the celebrity news mag.

"He told me that John was gay and they had a sexual relationship," she said.

Doug Gotterba is not quoted by the Enquirer about his relationship with Travolta. The tabloid says only that he confirmed his employment with the actor.

But Gotterba’s post-Travolta boyfriend, Robert Britz, confirms that and more.

"Doug told me right at the beginning of our relationship that he'd had a homosexual relationship with John Travolta in the 1980s," Britz recalled.

William "Billy" Bretherton, star of the A&E reality TV show Billy the Exterminator, was arrested in Louisiana for drug possession, according to reports.

Police issued a warrant last week for Bretherton and his wife.

His drug of choice was bath salts. Just kidding, but not too far off. Bossier City spokesman Mark Natale says authorities found items that tested positive for a "designer" or synthetic type of marijuana, plus "a device commonly used to smoke narcotics."

You'll have to use your imagination on that one.

Another interesting note in the case: Natale said police were called on April 28 to a Bossier City hotel following a 911 hang-up call from that room.

A great way to get arrested: Start to call 911 on yourself while in the midst of some illegal activity, then sketchily hang up. It works almost every time.

The reality show star and his wife surrendered to the police on Friday and were eventually released later that day after posting a $6,000 bond each.

A&E reps were not available for comment.

Miss Pennsylvania USA Sheena Monnin resigned this week, calling the Miss Universe Organization "fraudulent, lacking in morals, inconsistent and trashy."

Let's start with the first part. She wrote on Facebook that a fellow contestant saw a list revealing the top five Miss USA finalists before the show took place.

The Miss Universe Organization denies this, saying in a statement:

"The Miss Universe Organization can confirm the resignation of the Pennsylvania title holder after she did not place in the Top 16 at the Miss USA pageant."

"In an email to pageant organizers, she cited the Miss Universe Organization's policy regarding transgendered contestants as the reason for her resignation."

"Today she has changed her story by publicly making false accusations claiming that the pageant was fixed, however the contestant she privately sourced as her reference has vehemently refuted her most recent claim."

"We are disappointed that she would attempt to steal the spotlight from Olivia Culpo of Rhode Island on her well-deserved Miss USA win."

Culpo, who won Sunday, was asked during the show about the inclusion of transgender contestants, which the organization permitted two months ago.

"I do think it is fair," she said. "I could understand how people could be apprehensive to take that road, but I do accept that ... I believe it's a free country."

After the organization changed its rules to allow Jenna Talackova, who was born male, to compete (for Miss Canada), Sheena Monnin was PISSED.
