Chidi Uzomah Jr., who is 25 (but looks 40 in his ever attractive mug shot) has been ordered to stay at least 500 feet away from Seacrest for the next three years, according to the Los Angeles Superior Court.
Uzomah is a sergeant with the Army Reserves and part of the special forces.
Army spokesman Lt. Col. Nathan Banks told TMZ, “We apologize to Ryan Seacrest. Pending the outcome of the local investigation, the Army will decide what further action to take. We take all matters of our personnel seriously.”
This is the price of fame, unfortunately. We have no clue what his rationale for going after Seacrest is.
- I attended the taping of the Soul Train Awards last night at the Georgia World Congress Center. Fantasia was there to fete Chaka Khan, who received a lifetime achievement award. She did her usual vocal theatrics. I videotaped a few seconds of it and will post it tomorrow. I was too far away from the stage so I ended up taping the video screen near me.
- Remember Chris Richardson from the less-than-enthralling season six? Kind of? Sort of? Not really?
Well, he did an interview with Walmart to promote his upcoming album. Yes, it’s taken him two years to get one out. Here’s a photo of him from MJ. He may have been hanging at the Checkers drive through with Blake Lewis, eh?
-And MJ also has a hilarious photo of Kelly Clarkson from a Halloween concert dressed as Stewie from “Family Guy.” And you have to love Clarkson’s sense of humor. She sang a portion of Beyonce’s “Halo” at the end of “Already Gone.” Remember when Ryan Tedder gave both artists the same backing track?
I am seriously bummed she’s skipping Atlanta on this tour.
