It's official: The latest from CNN Entertainment

Here's the latest confirmed news from CNN Entertainment:

  • Drake and Chris Brown offered $1 million each to fight: An organization called Celebrity Boxing Gym has offered both Chris Brown and Drake - the two hip-hop stars named in an alleged altercation at a New York nightclub two weeks ago - $1 million a piece to fight each other in the ring. They've even reached out to Rihanna - who reports speculated was the reason for the brawl - to be the ring girl. Yep. A rep for the Celebrity Boxing Gym tells CNN that they're waiting to hear back from reps for both Drake and Chris Brown, and that while they're "99.9 percent sure" Rihanna's going to pass, they're positive she'd watch the fight, if it were to happen. Proceeds would go to benefit a charity that helps abused women.
  • Jennifer Lawrence helps collapsed girl: Add Jennifer Lawrence to the growing list of celebrities you want around when you need a helping hand. The 21-year-old "Hunger Games" star came to the aid of an underage girl on Monday after the young woman collapsed on the front lawn of Lawrence's Los Angeles apartment complex. Lawrence was one of those attempting to offer help when police arrived around 6:49 p.m. Police say the young woman was treated on the spot and cleared to go.
  • 50 Cent suffers minor injuries after car crash: Rapper 50 Cent was in a car accident in New York early on Tuesday, but thankfully he only suffered minor injuries. His rep tells CNN that he was "taken to New York Hospital Queens, where he was treated for minor neck and back injuries. He was released this morning and is doing fine."

    Ugh both Chris AND Drake are little girls though! Drake is a no talent, annoying, ugmo little canadian piece of trash. No self respecting person with any hint of class even listens to his "music" And Chris Brown is a loser who feels the need to beat on women. So now that I think about it, yeah I would like to see them beat each other up for charity! Woo Woo!

    I hope they take the offer and beat each other to death. It'd be no great loss...two talentless idiots.
