Rap mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs will not face charges after he was arrested by UCLA police on suspicion of assault and making terrorist threats, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.

The DA referred Combs' case to the City Attorney's office to determine whether any misdemeanor charges will be filed, DA's office spokesman Ricardo Santiago said.

There was no immediate word on why county prosecutors refused to file charges.

"We are thankful that the District Attorney rejected felony charges in this matter. This case never should have been part of the criminal justice system to begin with," attorney Mark Geragos said in a statement.

Combs was arrested last week for an alleged assault involving a weight-room kettlebell at the athletics facilities of UCLA, where his son plays football.

A source familiar with the case said Combs said he acted in self-defense, and that his son felt he was being bullied by a football coach. Combs said he held up the kettlebell to defend himself, a source told NBC News.

The source added that Combs had gone to talk to the coach, who did not want to talk to the hip-hop impresario. The source said that the coach wanted to call campus police and Combs said that he would call 911.

Officials did not say who was allegedly assaulted or what led to it. No one was seriously injured, police said. Combs' attorney did not immediately return calls from NBC seeking comment.

A rep for Combs Enterprises said Combs was defending himself in the incident.

"The various accounts of the event and charges that are being reported are wholly inaccurate," Nathalie Moar, a rep for Combs Enterprises, said in a statement to The Associated Press. "What we can say now is that any actions taken by Mr. Combs were solely defensive in nature to protect himself and his son."

<![CDATA[Jim Carrey Calls Calif. Gov. 'Fascist' Over Vaccines]]> Wed, 01 Jul 2015 05:31:23 -0700 http://media.nbcsandiego.com/images/213*120/AP_170468991560.jpg

Actor Jim Carrey turned to Twitter to air his frustrations over California's new strict vaccination law on Tuesday, calling Gov. Jerry Brown a "corporate fascist."

In a series of tweets, the Golden Globe winner insisted that he was "pro-vaccine" but "anti-neutrotoxin" and "anti-mercury," which, he believes causes autism in children. The rant started with Carrey saying California's governor, who signed in the one of the strictest immunization laws in the country, "must be stopped."

Carrey and former girlfriend Jenny McCarthy, who believe McCarthy's son's autism was caused by vaccines, have become activists on the issue. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says there is "no link between thimerosal-containing vaccines and [autism], as well as no link between the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine and [autism] in children."

In the same Twitter tirade, Carrey also accused the CDC of being "corrupt" and unable to "solve a problem they helped start."

The California bill removes the state's personal belief exemption for immunizations and instead says that only children with serious health problems may opt out. It came in the wake of a measles outbreak at Disneyland last year that affected more than 100 people in the U.S. and Mexico. 

"This is truly a case where science — and what is the best case for public health — prevailed," state Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, said at a press conference Tuesday.

<![CDATA[Movie Star Walrus Dies at 21]]> Tue, 30 Jun 2015 06:34:06 -0700 http://media.nbcsandiego.com/images/180*120/Sivuqaq.jpg

A Six Flags Discovery Kingdom walrus who starred in popular movies passed away on Sunday.

Sivuqaq was taken in by the park in 1994 with three other orphaned walrus calves. All four made their debut together in spring of 1995 at the Walrus Experience.

“Words cannot describe the loss we feel,” said Dianne Cameron, marine mammal manager. “We are grateful to have shared his life with him. He touched many people and was loved enormously.”

Sivuqaq also appeared in the 2004 feature film “50 First Dates” as “Jocko” the walrus.

He was also the voice for various creature characters in “Lord of the Rings”, “The Hobbit” and “Jurassic Park."

The park reports that “Sivuqaq demonstrated an intelligence that scientists could not have known about walruses, and hence, he contributed greatly to scientific study of Pacific walruses, one of the least-known and least-studied marine mammals in the world.”

At 21, the male Pacific walrus died from heart failure.

Singer Enrique Iglesias is facing misdemeanor charges of obstruction and driving with a suspended license following a traffic stop in Miami-Dade County last month, Florida Highway Patrol officials said.

According to the FHP, on May 6, Iglesias was pulled over in a Cadillac Escalade after a trooper spotted the SUV driving northbound on Interstate 95 in the closed express lanes.

As the trooper pulled the Escalade over, Iglesias jumped from the driver's seat into the back and the passenger got into the driver's seat, according to an FHP arrest affidavit. Iglesias then climbed into the passenger seat, the report said.

"It was Mr. Iglesias that was the initial driver, yes," FHP Lt. Julio Pajon said.

Iglesias and the passenger, identified as Abel Tabuyo, were handcuffed, and Iglesias invoked his Miranda rights, the report said. Tabuyo said he didn't know why he switched seats with Iglesias, the report said.

Iglesias and Tabuyo, who was also charged with obstruction without violence, were released after signing notices to appear in court. Both entered not guilty pleas and Iglesias' next court date was set for July 10.

NBC 6 reached out to Iglesias' attorney and is awaiting an official comment.

The alleged incident happened just a few weeks before the 40-year-old Iglesias badly injured his hand after grabbing a drone at a concert in Tijuana, Mexico. He later underwent reconstructive hand surgery in Los Angeles.

<![CDATA[The Game Pleads Not Guilty to Hitting Off-Duty Cop]]> Mon, 29 Jun 2015 12:02:23 -0700 http://media.nbcsandiego.com/images/180*120/GettyImages-122720824.jpg

Rapper The Game pleaded not guilty on Monday to charges that he hit and threatened an off-duty LAPD officer during a basketball game in Hollywood.

The Game, or Jayceon Terrell Taylor, allegedly confronted the officer when the two were on opposing teams at a basketball game at Hollywood High School in March, according to the LA County District Attorney's Office.

After the 35-year-old rapper, a Los Angeles native, was accused of "committing a hard foul," he allegedly confronted the off-duty officer, struck him and later threatened to kill him, prosecutors said.

Taylor is charged with one felony count of making criminal threats and one misdemeanor count of assault and battery. He faces up to three years in prison if convicted.

The court appearance comes in the wake of a judge's order that Taylor pay over $200,000 to his children's former nanny in an Instagram-related libel case.

Taylor's representatives did not immediately respond to NBC4's requests for comment. He is due back in court July 30.

"Game of Thrones" fans devastated by the season finale’s killing of Jon Snow may have gotten their first glimmer of hope that maybe, just maybe, Snow will return some day.

In an interview with MTV News, Emilia Clarke, who plays the role of Daenerys Targaryen, reaffirmed that she really doesn’t know what the future holds for Snow, but hints that there’s a chance Snow and actor Kit Harrington could come back. 

“I can with all honesty say I have no idea what’s happening,” Clarke said. But when asked if she had to take a wild guess, Clarke said, “I mean if I had to bet, I’d say it’s like a 50/50 chance.

Clarke noted that there are characters on the show that could help ressurect the Watch Commander, including Melisandre, who conveniently arrived at Castle Black as the hero was stabbed.

Clarke added that the show’s producers know she can’t lie very well, so the news should be taken with some caution.

Still, it may be enough to build up anticipation for a possible return of Snow sometime in the future.

<![CDATA[Katy Perry, Nuns in Uproar Over Convent Sale]]> Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:32:32 -0700 http://media.nbcsandiego.com/images/213*120/463035626.jpg

A former convent in the hills above Los Angeles is at the center of a real estate dispute involving pop star Katy Perry, the archbishop of Los Angeles and a group of nuns.

The legal fireworks are about who has the right to sell the nuns' former convent in Los Feliz to the "Roar" singer, whose recent $14.5 million offer for the 8-acre property assessed at $13 million was accepted by the archdiocese.

But the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary said it's not the archdiocese's property to sell. They already reached a deal two weeks ago with Los Angeles restaurant-nightclub owner Dana Hollister for about $15.5 million, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The archdiocese, which said the deed to the property reflects a value of $10 million, is now attempting to block that sale. The Archdiocese has taken civil action against Hollister because the transaction "lacks the required approval from the Archdiocese and the Holy See, and does not provide a solution for the House of Prayer which is on the property," according to a statement from the archdiocese.

"God help us, we are going to fight this," Sister Rita Callanan said in an interview with TODAY.

The archdiocese claims in its statement that the alternative transaction, "supported by the majority of the sisters," includes property for a House of Prayer to be owned by the sisters.

Immaculate Heart sisters told the Times they met with Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gomez before the sale to Hollister. At the time, the sisters only knew that someone famous wanted to enter a deal with the archdiocese, they told the Times.

Once they found out it was Perry, they did some research into her music, videos and onstage performances.

"I didn't know who she was," Sister Callanan said of Perry. "I was particularly concerned about the video, the 'Dark Horse.'"

More than 50 sisters used to live in the convent, now only a handful remain after the archdiocese moved many to other locations.

Perry's parents still have a ministry in Southern California, and she grew up singing gospel music. In an effort to win their favor, Perry even met personally with the sisters earlier this year and performed a song -- "Oh Happy Day" from the movie "Sister Act 2," starring Whoopi Goldberg.

She made a fairly good impression, the sisters told the Times, but Hollister's offer was accepted by the nuns. She already moved into the villa-style home that offers sweeping views of Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Valley to the east, according to the Times.

The archdiocese has refused to back down and obtained a court order that allowed Perry to visit the property with an architect, according to the Times.

"We've already entered and accepted the offer from Ms. Perry," said Monica Valencia, of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. "The Archbishop has made a promise to care for the sisters, and we want to do what's best for them."

It's a girl!

Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry and his 9-month pregnant wife, Ayesha, are expecting another baby girl. 

Us Weekly revealed the gender of the couple's second child Friday. They are also parents to 2-year-old Riley. 

Ayesha took to her blog to share pictures of a new nursery, which was designed by Pottery Barn Kids.

The pair's home office has been converted into the nursery, Ayesha wrote, adding, "I feel so blessed to be able to bring our new baby home to a beautiful, peaceful and serene environment."

Not only did Pottery Barn Kids make Ayesha's nursery dreams a reality, but the company also completed the room's makeover in three days while the family was in Cleveland for the 2015 NBA finals where the Warriors walked away victors.

An eager “Seinfeld” fan re-creating Kramer’s famous entrance took down part of the door frame to the just-opened replica of Jerry’s Upper West Side apartment.

The video, which has gotten more than 150,000 views on YouTube, shows Tim McGeever spin through the door and take out part of the purple frame with his backpack.

“I came, I saw, I broke (by accident!),” McGeever wrote on YouTube where he shared the clip. “You might say I took my Kramer impression one step too far at Hulu's #seinfeldapartment...within hours of opening. Enjoy my spin-crash humiliation!”

McGeever told TODAY.com that he got the idea from the staff at the Hulu-created pop-up, which opened the same day all 180 “Seinfeld” episodes were released on the streaming site.

“While I was standing in line, the anticipation was building,” he said. “I had very little time to plan it, aside from knowing I wanted to do some slide/twist maneuver. Before I knew it I was inside, along with a smattering of debris. So you might say, it was equal parts planned and spontaneous.”

He said he was “mortified” and was received by a mix of anger and laughs from onlookers.

“Then I realized, no, Hulu was encouraging this behavior, they built this set, and they have a lot of money. I'm fine. Now how do I get out of here!?" he told TODAY.com.

Fans were ushered out of the room and McGeever was able to quietly sneak out of the recreated set.

The replica takes "Seinfeld" lovers through a real-life model of the apartment. Fans can see different items such as the Monk's Cafe table and booth, the Festivus Pole and George Costanza's photo shoot set from different episodes. There is also a canvas "brick wall" full of signatures from the show's many stars, guests and crew.

The free pop-up event, called “Seinfeld: The Apartment,” is open through this weekend from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Milk Studios, 451 West 14th Street, in Chelsea.

<![CDATA[ B.B. King Executor Designee, Kin in Court Over Estate]]> Thu, 25 Jun 2015 23:41:50 -0700 http://media.nbcsandiego.com/images/213*120/672611.jpg

Some of blues great B.B. King's heirs are due to ask a judge in Las Vegas on Thursday not to turn over control of the late music icon's estate to the longtime business manager he named as executor. 

But a lawyer for the B.B. King estate and designated executor LaVerne Toney says family members' claims that Toney isolated their father, stole from him and poisoned him before his May 14 death at age 89 have no basis in fact.

"We believe the judge will accept the will and appoint LaVerne as executor," attorney Brent Bryson said Wednesday.

In court documents submitted ahead of the hearing, Bryson accuses some of King's children and relatives of "attempting to do what Mr. King would never allow them to do when he was alive, which is to insert themselves into his business affairs."

King wanted to spend his last days in the comfort of his home, not in a hospital, the document said. It said King, not Toney, chose not to have daughters Karen Williams and Patty King visit.

Attorney Larissa Drohobyczer, who says she represents a five-member family board of B.B. King's 11 surviving children, including Williams and Patty King, said last week she believes the estate is worth between $5 million and $10 million.

B.B. King was married twice and had 15 children. Four have died.

Williams and Patty King accused Toney of preventing them from seeing their father, and Toney and B.B. King's personal assistant, Myron Johnson, of administering an unknown substance to him to hasten his death.

Toney and Johnson denied the claims, and Bryson dismissed them as ridiculous, defamatory and libelous.

The allegation prompted an autopsy by the Clark County coroner the day after a May 23 King memorial in Las Vegas. Results of toxicology tests are expected in several weeks. Police said there is no active homicide investigation. King's physician and the coroner said King died of natural causes — a series of small strokes attributable to a yearslong battle with Type 2 diabetes.

Toney managed King's road show business for 39 years and had power-of-attorney over his personal affairs. She is the executor named in his will of Jan. 18, 2007.

The document filed Tuesday dismissed as "unsubstantiated and wrong" a suggestion made by family members that another will exists.

"There is no missing will," it said.
