The banjo player from Nashville had logged onto a website and began communicating with someone he thought was the mother of two young girls. He asked the woman to send photos of the girls and in exchange, he sent back a photo of himself in his underwear, and allegedly offered to be the girls' "teacher." What he didn't know was that the girls' "mother" was actually an FBI agent.

HOLLYWOOD

 

“Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Harvey Relief” is set to air live next Tuesday night across ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, and cable network CMT in a roadblock fashion - and will feature stars from every facet of Hollywood, including Beyonce, George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Barbara Streisand, Resse Witherspoon, Oprah and more.  Country superstar George Strait will appear on the telecast in concert from the Majestic Theater in San Antonio, Texas. The telecast will originate from the Universal Studios lot, Times Square and Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry.  Proceeds from the event will be distributed to a range of charities aiding recovery efforts in Houston, which was ravaged last week by the storm and widespread flooding left in Harvey’s wake. The organizations include the United Way of Greater Houston, Habitat for Humanity, Save the Children, Feeding Texas and the Mayor’s Fund for Hurricane Harvey Relief.  Appearances from Jamie Foxx, Karlie Kloss, Rob Lowe, Matthew McConaughey, Dennis Quaid, Kelly Rowland, Adam Sandler, Ryan Seacrest, Michael Strahan, and Blake Shelton are also planned for next Tuesday's telecast.  The cost of Hurricane Harvey clean-up and repair is said to be the second most expensive natural disaster in history, second only to Hurricane Katrina that struck New Orleans over a decade ago.

 

A French court convicted six people of complicity and breach of privacy yesterday over long lens photographs taken of Princess Kate sunbathing while on vacation with Prince William in 2012.  France's Closer Magazine was fined just under $120,000 by a Paris court yesterday after it ruled the magazine had breached William and Kate's privacy.  A second publication, La Provence newspaper, was fined a little more than $3,500 for publishing images of Kate in her bathing suit.  Each photographer and magazine exec tied to the photos have been convicted of criminal charges as well, and each were also ordered to pay a fine.  In all, the photos will cost the parties involved around a million bucks. 

 

Taylor Swift is gearing up for a huge performance at this year's College Football National Championship in Atlanta this January.  A source says she'll headline a concert in Centennial Olympic Park during halftime of the game, and that it will be a free concert.  ESPN has her booked for the event and has a massive deal to release new music from her upcoming album Reputation through its college football coverage this season.  No plans for Taylor to play the Superbowl Halftime show.  It's not that they don't WANT her there - it's that she has that tiny little multi-million dollar deal with Diet Coke, and since the Superbowl is sponsored by Pepsi, Taylor has found it best to follow the money.
