In case you missed it: Tina Turner has formally “relinquished” her American citizenship, reports Al Kamen. The legendary singer has lived in Switzerland for about 20 years, and recently married music producer Erwin Bach, whom she had been dating since 1985. (In the Loop)

So, that new Nelson Mandela biopic — what does Nelson Mandela think? Producer Anant Singh said he showed part of the movie to the former South African president, a scene where Idris Elba is wearing prosthetics to look much older. “He says, ‘Is that me?’” Singh told Variety. “And it was very cute and he smiled and laughed, so it was very good.” (Variety)

The New York Daily News paints the picture of quite a scene inside the trial of Genevieve Sabourin, the Canadian  actress charged with stalking Alec Baldwin. Her lawyer claims she wanted “closure” after she and the actor had a fling; Baldwin says it never happened and she started harassing him after a brief lunch meeting. Apparently, Baldwin nearly broke down on the stand while Sabourin yelled that he was lying about everything. (NYDN)

Update: Sabourin gets 30 days for contempt after repeatedly interrupting the trial Wednesday. (New York Post)
