Daniel Franzese, who played high school student Damian alongside Lindsay Lohan in "Mean Girls," has come out publicly as gay, in an open letter posted online a week before the 10th anniversary of the cult comedy film.

The 35-year-old also says many may consider the news a "duh moment" and indicates he was reluctant to reveal his sexuality to the public earlier because he did not want to jeopardize his chances of playing other types of roles after portraying "a sensitive, moisturizing, Ashton Kutcher-loving, pink-shirt-wearing kid." After "Mean Girls" was released on April 30, 2004, Franzese appeared in "War of The Worlds" and several small-budget films.

Chris Brown appears in a Los Angeles court on March 17, 2014. He was ordered to remain in jail until an April 23 probation violation hearing. The singer was arrested on March 14 for violating his probation. - Provided courtesy of OTRC

A trial over Chris Brown's misdemeanor assault case in Washington, D.C. has been delayed again, this time for months, after prosecutors refused to grant immunity to his bodyguard, who was found guilty of the same charge and is a witness.

Brown was scheduled to face a judge in Washington D.C. on Wednesday, April 23. The 24-year-old R&B and pop singer and his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, were arrested in October and accused of punching Parker Adams, 20, outside a city hotel. Brown, who was jailed in March in California for violating his 2009 probation in a separate case and was flown with federal agents for his trial, previously pleaded not guilty to felony assault -- which was later reduced to a misdemeanor. Hollosy was found guilty of the same latter charge on Monday and his lawyer had said he plans to appeal.
