The Disputed Tee Don't expect Rihanna to be shopping at Topshop for T-shirts anytime soon. The superstar is suing the British mass retailer to the tune of $5 million in damages over a graphic T-shirt that features her image-and wasn't approved by anyone on her team, reported Page Six. To make matters worse, the 25-year-old isn't receiving any royalties from the product, which is sold in the store's UK outposts.

According to the New York Post's gossip page, RiRi's team have desperately been trying to negotiate with Topshop for almost a year on the matter, but the fast fashion chain isn't budging. Apparently, they've been dismissive throughout, offering up a paltry $5,000, and essentially telling her to go away.
So how can Topshop get away with is? It seems the retailer's defense is a creative copyright loophole that exists in the UK. "Rihanna's management asked Topshop a number of times to stop selling

Lindsay Lohan/Avril Lavigne We all have those people we simply don't care for, and guess what? Celebrities do too. The difference between us and famous folks, though, is that we tend to confront our enemies in private, not on the red carpet or in a crowded club. Of course, when stars do face off in public, there's nothing more entertaining (especially since there always seems to be a gossip columnist or camera nearby.)

In honor of a recent confrontation at last week's Met Gala (read on for that story), we decided to round up the craziest celebrity showdowns of all time.
1. Miley Cyrus vs. January Jones: Back in March, rumors began to swirl that trouble was brewing for Cyrus and her fiancé Liam Hemsworth. During Oscars weekend, paparazzi spotted him getting into a car with Jones and allegedly kissing her. All parties were mum on the subject, but their conflict came full circle at last week's

Sara Blakely In today's ultimate good deed, shapewear queen and Spanx founder Sara Blakely has just become the first female billionaire to sign the Giving Pledge, an initiative started by Bill Gates and Warren Buffet in 2010 that encourages the world's richest people to give at least half their wealth to charity, reported Forbes. Blakely-who's worth a whopping $1 billion-became the world's youngest female billionaire last year at the age of 42.

"Since I was a little girl I have always known I would help women," Blakely wrote in her pledge letter. "At Spanx, we say it's our goal to make the world a better place, one butt at a time. With this pledge my goal is to make the world a better place…one woman at a time."
Blakely's story is seriously amazing, as she started Spanx less than 15 years ago with an investment of just $5,000. At the time, Blakely-a young graduate of Florida

Kris Jenner and Ramona Singer When Kim Kardashian showed up in a floral gown by Riccardo Tisci at last Monday's Met Gala (not to mention dined the night before at Anna Wintour's New York townhouse in head-to-Prada) the fashion world was more than a little shocked. Had the legendary Vogue editrix who'd previously expressed distaste for the pregnant reality starlet finally let up? In other words: Had pigs started to fly?

Well, as it turns out, just because Wintour let Kim in doesn't mean the rest of her famous family has carte blance to traipse around in couture on fashion's biggest night.
According to Radar Online, upon receiving a desperate request from 57-year-old Kardashian momager Kris Jenner to attend the ball, Wintour firmly stated: "One Kardashian is enough!" A source explained that just because Kardashian was invited (no doubt thanks to her boyfriend, style-setting superstar Kanye West)

Beyoncé Could it Bey?!
In what's probably the biggest celebrity rumor we've heard in a while, the New York Post is reporting that sources inside the music industry are abuzz that Beyoncé is pregnant with baby number two. Of course, expectant celebrities rumors tend to fly no matter what, especially since Queen Bey just gave an interview to ABC News in which she shared that she definitely wants to have another child.

"I would like more children," the singer said. "I think my daughter needs some company. I definitely love being big sister."
After her appearance at the Met Gala a week ago in a belly-concealing Givenchy gown, it wouldn't be all too surprising if the singer is once again pregnant with husband Jay-Z's child-although we can't imagine she'd plan her second during this hectic time, as she's traveling the world for her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, which concludes in New York in August.

Miley Cyrus Miley Cyrus has yet again reminded us that her Disney Channel days as "Hannah Montana" are a thing of the past. This time, the 20-year-old starlet posed for Maxim, landing the coveted number one spot of number one on their annual "Hot 100″ list.

For the pictorial, Cyrus stripped down (shocker) in a pair of strategically ripped high-waist jeans and what appears to be vintage Versace jewelry, both of which are staples in her wardrobe.
While Cyrus obviously looks killer (the Pilates totally paid off), we can't help but question why she's constantly nearly-naked on the many magazine covers she's scored during the past year. She's working on an upcoming album, and we get that her non-Disney image is an integral key to its success, but between her racy V magazine cover released last week and her March Cosmopolitan cover, we've seen a lot of Miley-in more ways than one.

Gwyneth Paltrow Gwyneth Paltrow's at it again! The 40-year-old actress, well-known for her brazen and often elitist comments, has another bone to pick-and this time it's with the annual Met Gala. If you recall, on Monday night, Paltrow strutted down the red carpet at the high-profile fashion event clad in a coral Valentino Haute Couture gown and looked happy as can be vamping for the cameras.

However, looks can apparently be deceiving-as Paltrow told USA Today that she was actually having an abysmal time. "I'm never going again. It was so un-fun. It was boiling. It was too crowded. I did not enjoy it at all," she told the newspaper. Look, we've all been to our fair share of events where they could have cranked up the air conditioner a little, but this is ridiculous. It's one of the most exclusive nights in the entire industry, and it was an honor she was even invited. Additionally, isn't this a

Kristen Stewart When it came time for the red carpet at last night's Met Gala, we had a list of people we couldn't wait to see-and Kristen Stewart was definitely one of them. The 23-year-old starlet turned up (sadly without Robert Pattinson) in a glamorous red jumpsuit by Stella McCartney, and was instantly one of the night's standout stars.

Naturally, we had to consult her longtime stylist, Tara Swennen-who also dressed Teresa Palmer in Diane von Furstenberg for the big night-to get the full scoop. Swennen and K-Stew have worked together since the actress was 14 years old, so it's no surprise that she has some great insight into the A-lister's much-discussed sense of style.
Below, Swennen dishes on what it takes to style such a major event, as well as Stewart's fashion evolution, and the one trend the "Twilight" actress refuses to try.

As much as we hate to admit it, the fashion at this year's Costume Institute Benefit-a.k.a. the Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala, was a little more more "meh gala" than "Met Gala."
Considering the grandiose ball marked the official debut of the museum's upcoming exhibit "Punk: Chaos to Couture"-and attendees' attire is typically loosely inspired by the exhibition's theme-we thought we were in for a dizzying fashion spectacle filled with leather corsets, ripped flannel gowns, and maybe a combat boot or two.
While that wasn't exactly the case, we did notice that quite a few celebrities in attendance looked as if they were channeling other famous folks with their "punk" looks.

The 32-year-old reality starlet touched down in New York yesterday-presumably to attend the Met Gala tonight with boyfriend Kanye West-and immediately got some private time in with her rapper beau while clad in a chic dress from Prada's memorable Spring 2013 collection. Of course, we use the phrase "private time" loosely, as she posted the above image to Instagram, where she has over 8 million feverish followers. Us Weekly reports that the duo were attending an intimate dinner at Anna Wintour's townhouse, so it's no surprise that she opted to wear a dress from this particular collection-which is clearly one of Wintour's favorites.
Kim captioned the photo "Date night with my ❤" and, considering all
