Barbadian recording artist Rihanna tweeted an Instagram photo of her ex-beau Chris Brown lying shirtless in an unkempt bed topped with Simpsons-themed bedding.

Earlier in the week, Rihanna tweeted, “All alone in my big ole jet!!! See u soon lover,” presumably while en route to meet Brown in Germany.

Halle’s holiday throwdown

Halle Berry’s Thanksgiving festivities took a turn for the worse when her fiancé, French actor Olivier Martinez, and her ex, model Gabriel Aubry, got into a heated altercation in front of her 4-year-old daughter, Nahla, outside the star’s Hollywood Hills home. According to L.A. Now, Aubry was arrested and then transported to West Hollywood’s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he received treatment for facial wounds. A judge has since issued an emergency order of protection that requires Aubry to stay at least 100 yards away from Berry, Martinez and Nahla. He is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 13.

Bieber goes hillbilly for award ceremony

Justin Bieber made an, um, unfortunate fashion decision when accepting a prestigious award from Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper on Friday. He strayed from the event’s formal attire and donned unbuttoned blue-striped overalls and a black baseball cap, worn backward of course, to accept the Diamond Jubilee Medal, awarded to Canadians who have made significant achievements.

The Bieb then boasted about it on Twitter. Later the prime minister tweeted back, joking that he too had planned on wearing overalls.
