NEW EVIDENCE SUGGESTS BRUCE JENNER WON'T BE CHARGED FOR RECENT CAR ACCIDENT

New evidence in Bruce Jenner's recent car accident may exonerate him.

According to Gossip Cop, law enforcement officials have determined that the reality star's Escalade was apparently only going 38 MPH at the time of impact. This, in addition to the fact that he was not under the influence of anything and was not on his phone, is likely to get him out of any manslaughter charges. He may still be given a citation for following too closely behind the Lexus that he struck.

  • An official decision has yet to be made.

JUDGE ORDER LINDSAY LOHAN TO DO MORE COMMUNITY SERVICE

A judge in L.A. has ordered Lindsay Lohan to complete more community service. According to TMZ, it was determined that over half of the hours she completed as part of her probation were unacceptable to the court.

Lindsay must now complete an additional 125 hours as part of her punishment from her 2012 reckless driving case. The prosecutor in the case urged the judge to re-examine the hours approved by CSV in London after it was discovered that she was credited for six hours of service during hours when she was on stage acting in Speed-the-Plow and meeting fans.

  • The decision was made privately in the judge's chambers.
  • Lindsay's lawyer, Shawn Holley, discussed the prosecutor's complaint with TMZ saying, "He didn't like some of the work shadowing. And I think that was primarily it. I mean, my feeling was really that the prosecutor should cal l and speak with the community service director cause I think a lot of his concerns would have been answered if he had done that. But it made sense for us to just move forward and so that's why we reached a compromised position so that we can move forward. And by the way, it's not a problem because she's been enjoying doing community service and will continue to."
  • Lindsay has been spending most of this week attending events for London Fashion Week.

ZENDAYA COLEMAN FORGIVES GIULIANA RANCIC AS HOLLYWOOD WEIGHS IN

Celebrity women are rallying around Zendaya Coleman after Giuliana Rancic's insult about her dreadlocks at the Oscars. Sources are also telling Radar Online that the E! personality may not be in the clear just yet even though she gave an on-air apology which Zendaya has accepted.

One insider said, "The entire cast of Fashion Police is done with Giuliana and they are hoping that she will be not only kicked off the show, but also off of the network. The network does not condone racism in any way, shape or form and they know that their reputation is now at stake." The source added, "The staff at E! is comprised of many different races and everyone is pissed off. Giuliana cannot take her words back, regardless of what she tweets or how many times and ways she says she is sorry."

  • Rancic has also caused controversy over her skinny appearance which caused some fans to threaten a boycott if she isn't fired.
  • Zendaya posted a statement to her Instagram account on Wednesday (February 25th) to publicly accept Giuliana's apology. She wrote, "Studies have shown that even though we try to act without prejudice, sometimes it's just hidden inside us due to our past or surroundings. That hidden prejudice is often influential in our actions. It's our job to spot these issues within others and ourselves and destroy them before they become hurtful. I have so many people looking up to me, that I couldn't be scared, wait it out, nor could I just stand up for me; I had to do it for WE. It is important in this journey to remember that just because someone has inflicted hurt upon us, it does not give us the right to do the same. Body shaming and other hurtful tactics will never get the job done. As hard as it was to stop MYSELF from being ignorant and from posting the first mean words that came to my mind because I was hurt, I had to think about the bigger picture. Instead I sat for two hours on my phone, doing my research and formulating an educated response. Giuliana, I appreciate your apology and I'm glad it was a learning experience for you and for the network. I hope that others negatively affected by her words can also find it in their hearts to accept her apology as well. From a quote we all know by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., 'Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.' Let's be that light and spread that love."
