Early Wednesday, TMZ.com reported that Chris Brown and his entourage got booted off a rented private jet in Miami. The pilot, TMZ says, had warned the group not to smoke marijuana on board, but then detected the oder.
Cops arrived, and ordered everyone off the plane. Under terms of the Important Persons Act, however, nobody was arrested.
Brown laughed it off. In an Instagram video from Cannes, he asks “why the hell we in Cannes if we got kicked off the plane?”
But then adds this odd note: “You probably should check with the pilot, ’cause he definitely kept asking my homies for an eight-ball, and we definitely don’t sell drugs.”
An eight-ball, I am somewhat reliably informed, is one-eighth of an ounce of cocaine — not the sort of request you want to hear from your pilot.
Sometime soon, Mariah Carey will marry Australian zillionaire James Packer. This will be quite the wedding, but one vital detail remains unresolved.
So, ETOnline reports, somebody asked Carey just who would be qualified to sing at her wedding.Her response was clear and precise: “(Bad word) nobody. Bye!”
When will the wedding be? The happy couple haven’t said, but RadarOnline claims that plans are “on hold” because Carey’s ex, Nick Cannon, is stalling on finalization of their divorce.
The Good Wife, which just finished after seven seasons, will indeed have a sequel, CBS says. But the new show will be on CBS’s streaming-video-on-demand service All Access, not on broadcast TV.
CBS Corp Chairman Les Moonves announced the project this week. Julianna Margulies is gone, but the new show — no title yet — will star Christine Baranski and British actress Cush Jumbo, whose character Lucca Quinn appeared in Season Seven.
Some other cast members will be back too, Deadline reports. And Robert and Michelle King, creators of the original show, will run this one, too.
CBS is pushing hard to make All Access work. They’ve already announced a Star Trek project, for which production begins in Toronto starting this fall.

Lifestyles of the too-rich: I’ve already told you how retired boxing champ Floyd Mayweather likes to splash his money around. Now TMZ.com has another example:
Hair stylist Jackie Starr tells the website that she charges US$1,000 a trim and — get this — “I cut his hair two times a week … If he’s in training I will cut him Monday, Wednesday and Friday.”
And if Floyd’s away from home, Starr is flown out to do the trimming.
