Justin Bieber's alleged attack on a member of the paparazzi - who accuses him of roughing him up and leaving him in need of medical attention - is clearly BS.

Can you see Justin Bieber roughing someone up? Seriously?

That's beside the point, though. Whatever happened, Biebs' altercation is just the latest in a long string of tense run-ins between stars and the media who cover the celebrity gossip we crave. Here's a look back at seven of the most memorable:

1. Britney Spears: After a downward spiral that saw her shave her head, file for divorce and deliver her second child in the span of a year, Spears suffered a meltdown in February 2007 that saw her violently attack a paparazzo's car with an umbrella:

2. Russell Brand: Katy Perry's ex recently gave a whole new meaning to the term "dropped call" as he grabbed a photographer's iPhone and flung it through a nearby window. Brand later turned himself in after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

3. Kanye West: The rapper racked up three misdemeanor charges in 2008 after he was arrested for allegedly wrestling with a photographer at LAX, grabbing his camera and smashing it on the floor. The charges were eventually dropped.

"Some complain on Twitter about Obama."

So began Alec Baldwin in a Tuesday Twitter rant about the 2012 presidential election, in which it's safe to say he will not be voting for Mitt Romney.

Baldwin referred to Romney, President Obama's likely opponent, as "a corporate puppet" whose election would mean a return to "lying thieves in the White House who make war under false pretenses in order to make $ for their friends."

Alec asked, "You wanna go back? To Bush? Cheney? Paulson? Rumsfeld? Unfunded wars? Death of US soldiers and innocent civilians for oil?"

Baldwin criticized Mitt Romney's pro-business positions and said that the GOP will only "squander more US natural resources, revenue and perhaps lives."

Though he allowed that "America is competitive" and "there are winners and losers every day," he maintained that this alone doesn't solve problems.

"The America I love believes that all deserve some modicum of care and security," he said, ending his missive with a simple "Obama 2012."

If the election were held today, for whom would you vote?

Genevieve Sabourin, a 40-year-old actress from Montreal, Quebec, has been arrested for her alleged aggravated harassment and stalking of Alec Baldwin.

After repeated warnings to leave the actor alone, Police say she showed up at his home and "made" unwanted contact with the 30 Rock star again.

The one-sided relationship began in the form of romantic emails and text messages, as well as requests for financial help ... then got even weirder.

On March 31, 2012, the 54-year-old actor filed an official complaint against her after Sabourin showed up at his home in East Hampton, Long Island.

Days later, she trailed Baldwin at an event and was finally apprehended after trying to access his Manhattan home via the doorman. That worked well.

We realize she may be jealous that Alec got engaged to Halaria Thomas and all, but seriously. Cool it. Chill out. And don't mess with Jack Donaghy.

Alec Baldwin turns 54 years old today, but he went ahead and gave himself an early birthday present over the weekend. The actor proposed to yoga guru Hilaria Thomas!

We send our very best to this newly-engaged couple, while also sending our birthday wishes to the Capital One spokesperson/Oscar nominee/unparalleled Saturday Night Live host/30 Rock star behind the Jack Donaghy quotes that crack us up on a weekly basis.

Perhaps we'll purchase a new tuxedo for Baldwin in honor of this occasion. After all, it's past 6 p.m. somewhere and what is he, a farmer?

Other stars celebrating birthdays today include: Amanda Bynes (26), Jennie Garth (40), Picabo Street (41) and Eddie Murphy (51).

Alec Baldwin turns 54 years old tomorrow and has found the perfect way to celebrate: he proposed over the weekend to girlfriend Hilaria Thomas! And she said yes!

"Yes, it's true!" the actor's rep tells Us. "We're all excited for the newly engaged couple."

Hilaria Thomas and Alec Baldwin

Baldwin divorced Kim Basinger in 2002 and went through years of an ugly custody battle with his ex.

He remained out of any long-term relationships until he met Thomas, a 28-year old yoga instructor and co-owner of New York's Yoga Vida yoga studio.

She was born in Mallorca, Spain; grew up between Boston and Spain; and studied dance and art history at NYU. The two often write to each other on Twitter.

We wish this couple a lifetime of happiness!

We knew Jack Donaghy looked sharper in a suit this season on 30 Rock.

Backstage at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday, Alec Baldwin told Access Hollywood he was diagnosed with diabetes in May 2011 and proceeded to lose about 30 pounds in four months. His trick?

"I gave up sugar," the actor said, adding that "I do Pilates and spin... When we're shooting and I can't work out, I just have to eat less. So I'm very conscious of that."

Baldwin - who took home the trophy for Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series at the event  - is actually dating a yoga instructor named Hilaria Thomas, but says the two of them rarely practice her trade together often.

The best news, of course? Baldwin's slimmer figure has not resulted in any less hilarious 30 Rocks quotes this year.

Also, he should probably live longer as a result of the diet.

As you're probably aware, Alec Baldwin was kicked off an American Airlines flight last week when an attendant dared interrupt his intense game of Words With Friends.

How is the 30 Rock star handling this minor PR nightmare? By impersonating an AA pilot on SNL's Weekend Update and issuing a faux apology to himself, of course.

Sounding a little like John Edwards with a hilariously bogus Southern accent, "Captain Steve Rogers" went out of the way to apologize to the actor for removing him.

Not only that, he praised Baldwin as a bright, American hero.

Occasionally volatile actor Alec Baldwin has issued an apology for the crazy incident that saw him get kicked off an American Airlines flight on Tuesday.

Baldwin became irate after his game of Words With Friends was interrupted with the flight from JFK to LAX still at the gate, but the cabin doors closed.

When he was asked to turn off his phone, Baldwin retreated to the bathroom and allegedly slammed the door, leading the pilot to call for his removal.

Today, he's feeling bad about all this. He writes:

Alec Baldwin Picture

"First off, I would like to apologize to the other passengers onboard the American Airlines flight that I was thrown off of yesterday. It was never my intention to inconvenience anyone with my 'issue' with a certain flight attendant."

"I suppose a part of my frustration lay with the fact that I had flown American for over 20 years and was brand loyal, in the extreme."

"The ticket agents and Admiral's Club staff have always been nothing but abundantly helpful, as I have flown hundreds of thousands of miles with the one carrier."

Alec Baldwin and American Airlines are engaged in an epic feud after the actor was removed from a flight Tuesday, then tore the airline a new one on Twitter.

All over a game of Words With Friends, too.

When Baldwin was told by flight attendants that he had to get off his phone in the middle of a game, he stormed off and slammed the bathroom door so loudly the captain of Flight 4 had to get involved, according to fellow passengers.

The cabin door was closed, but the plane remained at the gate at the time of the incident. Alec then got up to go to the can and angrily slammed the door.

The captain then himself made the call to have Baldwin removed.

Sources close to the 30 Rock star counter that he did not slam the door, and only got up to get the flight attendant's name so he could file a complaint, but since the fasten seat belt sign was on at the time he was forced off the aircraft.

Alec proceeded to board the next LAX-JFK flight.

American Airlines claims Baldwin was "extremely rude to the crew" of the first flight, "calling them inappropriate names and using offensive language."

The execution of Troy Davis last night drew widespread criticism, including from 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin, who did not hold back on Twitter today.

Never one to shy away from controversial subjects, Baldwin made sure that his disgust over the Georgia man's death was heard loud and clear.

Of Davis' execution, which occurred at 11.08 p.m. by lethal injection, despite a plea for clemency, "The anti-justice haters won tonight," Baldwin said.

Alec Baldwin Tweet

The 53-year-old actor went on to make a stream of politically passionate comments that attracted both praise and criticism from Twitter followers.

He referred to the family of police officer Mark McPhail, who was gunned down rushing to the aid of a homeless man in a Burger King parking lot in 1989.

"Wonder if the MacPhail family will seek death penalty for US leaders who killed thousands of US soldiers and countless innocent Iraqis," tweeted Alec.

He then went on a Twitter rampage about his disgust in the execution of 42-year-old Davis, which was based on questionable eyewitness evidence.
