From weddings to yet another song leak, Celebuzz is rounding up the weekend’s hottest headlines.

#UnfollowSaturdays

OK that hashtag probably isn’t real, something like that happened on Saturday. Smilers and some members of the general population discovered that Miley Cyrus is no longer following her fiance Liam Hemsworth on Twitter.

Bieber The Boy Wonder?

While some people are still dealing with the fact that Ben Affleck will play Batman in the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman movie, Justin Bieber made things even more confusing with an Instagram snap of the film’s “script,” suggesting that he’s been hired for the role of Robin. The only thing that’s certain from this weekend, as far as Beliebers are concerned, is that the singer is BFFs with boxing champ Floyd Mayweather.

I Do x 2

Two famous couples tied the knot this weekend: Chrissy Teigen and John Legend in Italy; LeBron James and high school sweetheart Savannah Brinson in San Diego. Ah, love is so not dead, contrary to what Hollywood’s most recent breakups have indicated.

She’s Back…

Britney Spears woke up to some unsettling news on Sunday: her song “Work Bitch” leaked one day ahead of its official release date. The incident caused Team Britney to release the song to radio and iTunes 24 hours earlier than scheduled.

She’s Back Too!

The one and only Paula Deen returned to the public eye on Saturday, taking part in a cooking demo in Houston. The appearance marked the former Food Network star’s first public gig since a federal judge dismissed the civil lawsuit filed by a former employee.

Paula Deen Case Officially Dismissed

Paula Deen can officially breathe a sigh of relief.

A federal judge has approved the deal dismissing the lawsuit against the celeb chef, according to court docs filed Monday.

As originally reported by Celebuzz, the remaining charges in the civil case against the silver haired chef were dismissed last Friday in Georgia after a settlement was agreed upon by both sides without any fees or costs going to any party.

This marks the finality in a legal case that over the last two months has brought down Deen’s cooking empire as a result of the mounting public scrutiny when a recorded deposition was released in which the former Food Network star admitted to telling racist jokes and using the N-word. Numerous endorsers, like Target and Walmart, pulled the plug on their professional relationship with the chef, costing the 66-year-old millions in the wake of the media firestorm.

It all started in May 2012 when Deen’s former restaurant manager, Lisa Jackson, filed a $1.2 million lawsuit alleging racial discrimination and sexual harassment by her brother Bubba Hiers.

Case closed.
