U2 Bassist's Assistant Caught Embezzling!

U2 Bassist Adam Clayton

Achtung, Baby! Theft could happen to U2!

Carol Hawkins, personal assistant to U2 bass player Adam Clayton, has been found guilty of embezzling funds from the rocker.

Hawkins apparently moved in mysterious ways for over 4 years of her service; she was convicted last week of 181 counts of theft totaling nearly 3.5 MILLION dollars! It's NOT alright!

The thief will be where the streets have no name and the windows have bars for 7 years.

Clayton is reportedly pleased with the verdict, and will carry on rocking with or without Hawkins.

Bono Is The Richest Rocker In The World, After Today

Bono Is The Richest Rocker In The World, After Today

Don't cry Paul McCartney!

Friday, the Beatle will lose his title of World's Richest Rock Star, to Bono.

Thanks to a wise investment, Bono now owns 2.3% of Facebook shares.

THAT MEANS, by the end of the day a $90 million investment the U2er made 2 years ago, will magically turn into $1.5 billion.

Sir Paul only has a little over $1 billion, the poor chap!!

Since he earned most his money from the stock market, this officially makes Bono better at investing than music. LOL!

Either way, we bet the billionaire is gonna have a VERY special night tonight!

It seems the LEGENDARY Irish rock band U2 is seeking an elixer of youth so that their next album reaches the ever-coveted Tween demo.

U2 have seduced the Swedish song-writing talents of Carl Falk, the scribe behind One Direction’s award winning What Makes You Beautiful, and their hit One Thing.

Courtney Love Used U2's Bono As A Character Reference On Her Rental Application!

Filed under: Courtney LoveBonoFor Reals Estate

courtney love u2 bono apartment

She may not have gotten evicted from her apartment, but Courtney has moved on to a new residence…with the help of Bono!

To recap - back in December, Courtney Love's landlord was trying to get her evicted from her NYC apartment for several reasons, including "redoing the wallpaper without permission" and "setting the walls ablaze!"

Then in January, a judge tossed out the landlord's case…but Courtney has decided to live somewhere else anyway!

She's just moved to "The Lafayette building" In Nolita (in NYC), and she was able to land her new place thanks to a character reference by U2's Bono!

Here's what she said about it:
