PAUL SIMON AND EDIE BRICKELL ARRESTED

NORWALK, Conn. (AP) -- Paul Simon and Edie Brickell (EE'-dee brih-KEL') were in court yesterday holding hands while they faced disorderly conduct charges. Simon told a judge in Norwalk, Connecticut, he had a rare argument with Brickell on Saturday night at their home in New Canaan. Police chief Leon Krolikowski says officers responded to a 911 hangup and found minor injuries in what they believed was a case of domestic violence. He would not say who was injured or the nature of the injuries, only that it wasn't a result of punching. Police will not say what the argument was about but they say there was aggressiveness on both sides. Simon and Brickell have been married for nearly 22 years and have three children.

COLDPLAY'S CHRIS MARTIN DISCUSSES THE FAILURE OF HIS MARRIAGE

LONDON (AP) -- Chris Martin of Coldplay says the reason his marriage to Gwyneth Paltrow fell apart is because he could not let love in. Martin tells BBC's Radio 1 up to a certain point of his life, he "wasn't completely vulnerable and it caused some problems." Martin says, "You can be with someone wonderful, but because of your issues you can't let that be celebrated in the right way." Martin says it wasn't a breakdown of his marriage so much as a realization about trying to grow up.

PEBBLES UPSET OVER TLC BIOPIC

ATLANTA (AP) -- Pebbles is suing Viacom over how she was portrayed in the VH1 movie about TLC. Pebbles was TLC's former manager and she says the movie "Crazysexycool: The TLC Story" made her seem like "an unethical and dishonest businesswoman." She's seeking 10 million dollars in compensatory damages and 30 million dollars in punitive damages, as well as stopping further publication of the movie. The lawsuit says Pebbles always paid the group what they were owed and she never controlled TLC's lawyers or accountants. A Viacom spokesman did not return calls for comment.

'THE VOICE' TOP TEN PERFORM

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- It was a night of tears on "The Voice." Cat Perkins from Adam Levine's team was crying because she was so into performing "Landslide." Blake Shelton said she was going to make him cry. Levine told Bria Kelly from Team Usher he didn't feel connected to her version of "I'm With You." She left the stage in tears. The judges had positive reviews for Tess Boyer, Delvin Choice, Josh Kaufman and Audra McLaughlin (mik-LOHK'-lihn). Levine said Christina Grimmie's gutsy reworking of Drake's "Hold On We're Going Home" was purely her idea and there was no ceiling for how proud he was. Shelton said Jake Worthington was "a real dude" who represented the majority of America, while Shakira said Kristen Gremlin was a true artist who represented the minorities. Levine told Sisaundra Lewis they needed a new roof because she blew it off with her rendition of "Oh Sherrie." Two singers go home tonight.

DID BLAKE SHELTON TWEET ADAM LEVINE'S CELL PHONE NUMBER?

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Blake Shelton may have turned his bromance with Adam Levine into an all-out war -- or maybe it was just a joke. Shelton claims he tweeted Levine's cellphone number during last night's edition of "The Voice." Levine answered his phone during the show and pretended he didn't understand English. He later told Shelton that was not cool. Calling the number resulted in a busy signal, although Shelton was shown talking to someone on Levine's phone. Levine had been taunting Shelton on Twitter before the incident. Levine says his revenge will involve "a fork, an enclosed space and human poop."
