They're now saying that Katy Perry set a Super Bowl halftime show record by changing outfits four times. In fact, they're saying they were some of the most amazing changes this year, not counting Bruce Jenner.
A second search has turned up drugs at the home of BOBBI KRISTINA BROWN. Police only did a visual sweep of things that were lying out in the open the first time, but a more thorough search turned up the drugs, although it wasn't revealed just what exactly they found. This could be trouble for a person named Max Lomas. He's the one who found Bobbi Kristina in the bathtub and he allegedly forcibly drugged his girlfriend weeks before so she wouldn't run away. When the girlfriend's parents called police, they did a welfare check and determined she was fine and not being forcibly held. However, cops did find marijuana and Xanax and a gun and arrested Lomas. Meanwhile, Bobbi has been moved to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, which is one of the top facilities for neurological treatment. The Houston and Brown families have been bickering about visitation, but one thing they seem to agree on is a statement issued by Brown's attorney that Bobbi Kristina never officially married Nick Gordon. Houston family sources also say there are no legal documents that would allow Gordon to get any of the fortune Bobbi Kristina inherited from Whitney Houston if she passes.

Wal-Mart heiress Paige Laurie is divorcing and apparently her soon-to-be ex-husband Patrick Dubbert doesn't want to have to shop at Wal-Mart. Dubbert is seeking as much as $240,000 a month in spousal support. He itemized his monthly expenses in legal papers and they include around $50,000 for a rental home, $10,000 for furniture, $6,700 for a personal chef, 5-grand for clothes, a personal trainer for $2,500, $30,000 a month for vacations, $80-G's for entertainment, and a mere $1,000 for a personal stylist and $4,000 for a driver. He says Paige makes $872,000 per month just from stocks and dividends alone, so she can afford it.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will again visit the Texas Rangers during spring training. Last year, Wilson spent a day in Arizona and went through a morning workout with the Rangers and took the lineup card to umpires before a spring training game and sat in the dugout without playing.
Some people get arrested for not paying their taxes. However, Wichita Falls, Texas' Timothy Andrew Norris got arrested while paying his. An apparently disgruntled Timothy was at the Wichita County Courthouse Annex paying his $600-worth of property taxes in $1 bills. County Tax Assessor Collector Tommy Smyth was apparently not in the mood for his shenanigans and asked Timothy to leave. Timothy refused and was arrested on charges of criminal trespass and, following a struggle, resisting arrest. Norris' bail totaled $500, but there's no word on whether he paid for it with $1 bills.
