CELEBRITIES BEHAVING BADLY - SOFIA VERGARA'S SPILLED DRINK SPAT: SOFIA VERGARA'S 2013 started off with some drama. According to the New York Post, Sofia was kicked out of a Miami nightclub for bad behavior.
The trouble started when a fellow party-goer bumped into the "Modern Family" hottie and caused her to spill her drink. Boyfriend Nick Loeb -- who was supposedly already upset that the party was being hosted by club owner Chris Paciello, who dated Sofia in the 90s -- got into a verbal spat with the guy.
Sofia then started arguing with Nick because she thought he was making a scene. It went from bad to worse later after Vergara agreed to take a flirty photo with the same guest who'd knocked into her. Word is that's when Nick really lost it. Things got so bad that Nick was eventually thrown out of the club, with an F-bomb dropping Sofia not far behind.
But no worries, it's all good now between them -- a few hours later Sofia tweeted this photo of Nick with her mother.
UPDATE - JUSTIN BIEBER PHOTOGRAPHER DIED SEEKING POT PICS: The photographer who was killed while trying to snap photos of JUSTIN BIEBER was allegedly trying to get a shot of the Bieb smoking weed behind the wheel of his Ferrari.
A source at Chris Guerra's photo agency tells TMZ that the paparazzo called in with a report that he'd spotted Justin with a marijuana pipe in his hand and Selena Gomez in his passenger seat. The agent says that Guerra was probably "overzealous" in pursuing the story and didn't see the vehicle that hit and killed him as he was returning to his car.
Los Angeles Police say no charges are expected to be filed against the man who hit Guerra.
Justin, who was not in the car at the time, seems particularly upset that TMZ is trying to make the story more salacious. "It's really sad that people are trying to push a story without the facts so soon after this tragic accident,” read a statement from the singer’s rep.
“Justin was not present or involved in this incident and the focus should remain on honoring the memory of the victim."
