A city attorney’s spokesman said Jason Luis Rivera was charged Monday with two counts of trespassing and one count of resisting arrest.

It’s official: Nicki Minaj did not endorse Mitt Romney.
The rapper confirmed Monday on Twitter that she was taking literary license when she referenced the GOP nominee. Some took her words to mean she was backing President Barack Obama’s opponent.

“She likes to play different characters.”
The rapper thanked Obama for understanding “my creative humor and sarcasm,” noting “the smart ones always do.”
Minaj rapped the verse in question while making an appearance on the Lil Wayne mix tape track “Mercy.”

A jury on Monday awarded casino mogul Steve Wynn $20 million in his slander case against “Girls Gone Wild” founder Joe Francis, who claimed the creator of some of Las Vegas’ most upscale resorts threatened to kill him over a gambling debt.
In siding with Wynn, the jury determined there was clear and convincing evidence that Francis slandered the casino mogul and knew his allegations were false when he made them. Francis claimed Wynn threatened to hit him over the head with a shovel and have him buried in the desert.
