Mariah Carey's Bodyguard Is Facing Battery Investigation After Run-In Backstage With A Journalist… Or Was It A Stalker?!

no title

An ugly incident backstage could turn into charges… but first, we need to know who exactly is involved!

Mariah Carey was backstage at her show with Lionel Richie on Thursday night in San Diego, when a man purportedly claiming to be a journalist asked to take a picture with her.

The man, James Pablo, said to TMZ that he was working backstage as a journalist and that he even had a credential around his neck on a lanyard to prove it.

American Idol Is THIS Close To Locking In Their Stars As Mötley Crüe's Nikki Sixx Is Eyed For A Seat At The Judges' Table!

American Idol is so close to locking in its host and remaining judges.

As we previously reported, Ryan Seacrest has faced some hurdles while negotiating his contract for his return as host for the singing competition. While the Live! host agreed to be paid somewhere between $10 and 15 million for the gig, it's said he and the producers are clashing over his desire to be named an executive producer.

Apparently, the producers are unwilling to grant him this title as they rejected Katy Perry (who is being paid $25 million to be a judge on the show)'s request to be made an executive producer — and they don't want to ruffle any feathers. Still, Seacrest is likely to return to Idol as he reportedly met with ABC executives this week.

And while there are no updates about whether or not Lionel Richie has been locked in as a judge for the former FOX hit, it's believed the music legend is eyeing a contract somewhere in the range of $3 to $5 million. But what about that last spot at the judges' table??

Well, according to TMZ, both the Idol producers and the higher ups at ABC want Nikki Sixx from Motley Crue to be a judge. Why?? Because Mr. Sixx is supposedly willing to make less than Richie. Well, well!

Hopefully, Idol finishes up these contracts sooner than later or it'll just be Miz Perry running the show. Actually, we'd totally watch that show!

Ryan Seacrest's American Idol Contract Negotiations Hit A Snag Over THIS Little Request!

Ryan hasn't signed his 'Idol' contract

Ryan Seacrest's contract for the American Idol reboot isn't a done deal yet!

As we previously reported, the TV personality has been offered somewhere between $10 and $15 million to once again host the celebrated singing competition. While new judge Katy Perry is making significantly more than the 42-year-old, *cough*$25 million*cough*, the industry vet isn't upset about his paycheck.

Reportedly, negotiations for Ryan's contract have reached a standstill over the fact that Seacrest wants an executive producer credit in addition to his host title. It's said Fremantle Media and Core Media are hesitant to hand over that title to Ryan and have been stuck in a stalemate over the issue for the last week. Yikes!

So far, it's unclear if Seacrest is trying to snag more day-to-day responsibilities. Although, we doubt that's the case as Ryan is already spread pretty thin thanks to his Live! gig, radio show, production company, etc.

Nonetheless, as the producers are still scrambling to lock in another judge (potentially Lionel Richie), we're sure they'll cave and give Ryan what he's asking for. We mean, it's hard to imagine Idol WITHOUT Seacrest!

Lionel Richie Postpones Joint Tour With Mariah Carey Due To Knee Surgery Complications — But Are Weak Ticket Sales Truly To Blame?

Filed under: Music MinuteMariah CareySad SadInjury

no title

If it's Lionel Richie you're looking for, you'll have to keep looking.

Because the music icon just postponed his joint tour with Mariah Carey!

According to TMZ, the 67-year-old is still recovering from a surgery he underwent last month to address a preexisting knee problem.

Apparently, there were complications with the procedure and the injury did not heal correctly, so the Hello singer had to push his tour back to give himself more time to recover.

Lionel and Mimi were scheduled to kick off their All The Hits tour in Baltimore on March 15 — playing 35 shows, including Chicago, New York, Boston, Detroit and LA.

That delay might not be so bad considering sales were reportedly tanking, with Ticketmaster even offering a "buy one, get one free" promotion for the shows.

Could the poor sales be the real reason the show was postponed? Hmm…

Either way, we hope the music legend makes a full recovery in time for his tour, which is being rescheduled for the summer.
