How The Mighty Have Fallen: The Downfall Of Shia La Beouf
Once one of the most promising actors of his generation, likened to Tom Hanks, Shia La Beouf has ridden to the heights of Hollywood fame and today, to its lowest points. How could a young man who once had it all, have fallen so far, so fast? With La Beouf now entering rehab and hopefully moving on to a more positive phase of his life, a timeline of events that led him to this point in his life reads like a road map of excess and issues. Starting from 2007 until today, La Beouf seems to be interested more in making a name for himself as a disturbed young man rather then the promising young a...

Chris Brown's Assault Case Heads To Trial After Second Plea Deal Crumbles

June 26th, 2014 7:01pm EDT
Chris Brown
Chris Brown was offered a plea deal in his assault case that would make sure he didn't see the inside of a jail cell, but he turned it down over a technicality.

The plea deal was pretty sweet for Brown; it would credit him for the time he's already spent in jail with no probation and he would plead guilty to simple assault.

Brown's attorney Mark Geragos told reporters outside the courthouse, as seen in the video bel...
