Aw, come on! Who sues a 5-year-old??

Well, in this case, Simon Cowell's ex-fiancée Mezhgan Hussainy may not have had a choice in including little King Cairo's name as a defendant.

See, Mezhgan is Tyga's landlord, and according to TMZ, her suit says the rapper hasn't paid his $40K/month rent since January! Damn!

Naturally, she's suing to evict and get her rent money — harsh but fair. 80 grand is a lot of money, and a home in Beverly Hills could be bringing it in.

As far as why specifically list King Cairo? Well, apparently Tyga put his name on the lease!

Katy Perry is about to face one of the biggest obstacles of her career — sexism!

With her high profile (and high paid) upcoming gig as a judge on American Idol, Katy has already said she's looking to be more honest, like Simon Cowell.

Unfortunately, as she tells Glamour in the March issue (on newsstands February 13), she worries because she's a woman people will see her as "the bitch" of the show.

According to TMZ sources, the Swish Swish singer is "almost always" late for the tapings of the audition rounds. In fact, insiders close to production claim Katy regularly shows up anywhere between 10 to 25 minutes after call time. Tsk, tsk!
