Catherine Zeta-Jones checks into a clinic to deal with her recurring bipolar disorder. (People)
(She was not with husband Michael Douglas at Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ dinner; she has openly discussed her bipolar diagnosis in the past.)

A secret Rolling Stones show in a small L.A. club. “How was the gig?” writes Randall Robertson. “How the hell do you think it was? It was the Stones in a little club.” (LA Times)

Arguments begin in the Michaek Jackson wrongful death suit, with lawyers for his mom claiming that AEG Live was negligent in hiring Dr. Conrad Murray to look after him. But lawyers for the concert promoters say they had no idea he was using the anesthetic propofol to sleep. (AP)
