Redo on Brown sentence sought

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Los Angeles prosecutors are asking a judge to order Chris Brown to redo his community service because of significant discrepancies in records submitted to a court.

Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray writes in a motion filed Tuesday that the records submitted by Richmond, Va., police to prove the R&B singer performed six-months of community labor are "at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting."

Brown was allowed to perform his community labor sentence for the 2009 beating of Rihanna in his home state of Virginia. Richmond police submitted paperwork last year indicating Brown had completed his sentence, but the logs showed the singer performing double shifts in the city and at a day care center where his mother once worked.

Richmond Police spokesman Gene Lepley had no immediate comment, and a phone message for Brown's attorney wasn't immediately returned.

Bono, Williams join storm relief effort

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- U2 frontman Bono and NBC news anchor Brian Williams are the newest board members of a charity launched by the New Jersey governor and his wife to help victims of Hurricane Sandy.

With their appointments, announced Tuesday, they join Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi and other celebrities on the board.

So far, the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund has raised more than $32 million from more than 22,000 donors worldwide.

Known for his humanitarian efforts, Bono said he was inspired by the work of volunteers after the superstorm hit. Williams grew up at the Jersey Shore.

The Oct. 29 storm was one of the worst to strike the Northeast U.S. It is blamed for more than 130 deaths and tens of billions of dollars in property damage.

Queen Latifah strikes Netflix deal

Latifah said in a statement that Netflix is a "strong brand and the perfect place to showcase our projects."

Flavor Unit is also producing the upcoming Terrence Howard thriller "House of Bodies" and "Percentage," starring Ving Rhames and Macy Gray.
