Joe Jackson Dead at 89
Just days ago, we learned from the Jackson family that patriarch Joe Jackson had terminal pancreatic cancer and now, he passed away at the age of 89. Joe, the early manager of the Jackson 5, passed in hospice care in Las Vegas.

The band went on to sign with Motown Records in 1970, and had number one hits with such songs as “I Want You Back,” “I’ll Be There,” “ABC” and “The Love You Save.” The success came at a price with claims from Michael Jackson of physical and emotional abuse at the hands of his father.

Scarlett Johansson Denying She Ever Auditioned To Date Tom Cruise
Scarlett Johansson is shooting down rumors that she’d been 'auditioned' to date Tom Cruise in the wake of his divorce from Nicole Kidman. Brendan Tighe, a former member of the Church of Scientology, stopped by Meghan Kelly Today and said that he found out about the audition process by accident & is pointing the finger at ScarJo. “The very idea of any person auditioning to be in a relationship is so demeaning. I refuse for anyone to spread the idea that I lack the integrity to choose my own relationships,” Scarlett said in a statement. “Only a man – aka Brendan Tighe – would come up with a crazy story like that.” For the record, the Church of Scientology has denied Tighe’s claims as well. Unfortunately this sin't the first time this idea has been floating around.
