Police: Singer McCreery victim of home invasion

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Police say country music singer Scotty McCreery was the victim of an early morning home invasion near the campus of North Carolina State University, where he is a student.

Raleigh Police spokesman Jim Sughrue says officers were called shortly before 2 a.m. Monday to an apartment about a mile from campus. Three suspects armed with guns are reported to have taken wallets, cash and electronic items.

Police say the 20-year-old McCreery was among the victims. No one was injured.

A native of nearby Garner, McCreery won TV's "American Idol" in 2011.

'Modern Family' star agreement reached

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The mother and sister of "Modern Family" star Ariel Winter have settled a guardianship dispute over who will care for the teenage actress.

Winter's mother Chrisoula Workman and sister Shanelle Gray announced the accord on Monday in Los Angeles just before a guardianship trial was set to begin.

The 16-year-old actress will continue living with Gray, and Winter will decide whether to visit with her mother.

Chrisoula Workman had been seeking to reject Gray's petition to be appointed Winter's guardian until she reaches the age 18.

Cobain memorial park benches up for auction

ABERDEEN, Wash. (AP) -- Two benches that became an unofficial memorial to Kurt Cobain after the grunge rock singer killed himself 20 years ago are up for sale.

The benches sat in a Seattle park near Cobain's home and were covered with messages from fans that were written or carved on the wooden slats.

KXRO reports the slats on the Viretta Park benches were replaced with new wood in 2008, but the old slats were saved from the landfill.

Now, the old marked-up slats are fixed to new frames, and the Cobain memorial benches are for sale at a Tacoma auction house.

Allman sues to stop movie after train crash

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) -- Singer Gregg Allman is suing to stop movie producers from reviving a film based on his life story after a camera assistant was killed by a freight train while working on the project in southeast Georgia.

A lawsuit filed by the Allman Brothers Band singer in Savannah says Unclaimed Freight Productions lost its rights to make the film "Midnight Rider" when it failed to begin principal photography by Feb. 28. Production was suspended after a train plowed into director Randall Miller's crew on a trestle Feb. 20. Crew member Sarah Jones was killed, and six others were injured.
