Spike Lee has apologized for retweeting the purported address of George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who shot Trayvon Martin in Florida and sparked national outrage. The address Lee shared last Friday actually belonged to David and Elaine McClain, a Sanford, Fla., couple who fled their home out of fear that people would seek retaliation against them. (The McClains have an adult son named William George Zimmerman who no longer lives at their residence.) “I Deeply Apologize To The McClain Family For Retweeting Their Address,” Lee tweeted Wednesday night. “It Was A Mistake. Please Leave The McClain’s [sic] In Peace. Justice In Court.” The McClains have retained an attorney, according to the Orlando Sentinel. (Yahoo’s Cutline)

Hours after his attorney denied that he was driving drunk over the weekend, Bobby Brown was charged with three misdemeanors, including two DUI counts and a charge of driving with a suspended license. The ex-husband of Whitney Houston faces up to six months in jail on the DUI charged; he is scheduled to appear in court April 16. (Associated Press)

Five-year-old Suri Cruise was spotted wearing red lipstick while out in New York with mom Katie Holmes. Honestly, that detail in this Us Weekly photograph is of far less interest than how much this kid is starting to look like her dad, Tom Cruise. Seriously, did they put his head on her little girl body? (Us)
