Ludacris Sues Over Disturbing tha Peace
(TMZ) Ludacris says his record label "Disturbing tha Peace" has a reputation to uphold -- so he's slapping a Texas couple with a lawsuit accusing them of stealing his company's name.

Ludacris -- real name Chris Bridges -- filed legal docs this month ... claiming Demetri and Donna Evans-Brown are illegally using the phrase "Disturb The Peace" for their audio equipment business and musical recordings.

But Ludacris says he's owned the trademark for "Disturbing tha Peace" since 2003 -- it's also the title of his 2005 album -- and the couple's use of a similar name will confuse customers and ruin his reputation.

Luda is asking a judge to force the Browns to stop using the trademark -- and he's suing for damages, plus attorneys' fees. more on this story

The Warming Center has been a destination for those in need of food, clothing, cleaning supplies, and just a warm place to go. Celtic Thunder pitched in to help distribute the other much-needed items. Earlier in the day, they traveled with The Coalition of Hope to see first-hand the severely damaged area. The organization is responsible for the warming tents, which have had up to 750 people there in one day. The band reflected on the day sharing, "you hear the stories and it's something that really touched home with us," band member Emmet Cahill said. "You know we feel very blessed to be able do what we do and we're very lucky we've never gone through something like this. So when we see people in a time of need like this, we basically want to give something back."

Castle Star Jon Huertas Releases New Single
Jon Huertas, who plays Detective Javier Esposito on "Castle," has released a new single, "Ledge of Love," and you can hear it online. Were sent these details:

Many Castle fans may be surprised to learn Jon spends much of his free time creating and performing music. He's traveled the world singing in large auditoriums, small and sexy jazz clubs, even appearing in "The Wiz". It all stems from his first featured singing solo, at the ripe age of six, at his catholic school's 2nd grade Christmas show.

Recently Jon has collaborated with Grammy nominated songwriter/producer Christian "Davis" Stalnecker and together they've produced Jon's new album "Grown and Sexy". Jon describes his genre as Urban Pop and believes that his acting background has helped him immensely as a singer. "We write these songs so that they tell a clear story. That's what I love about Christian, he gets it. It's about story telling, just like in TV and film, and I know how to do that."

Throughout the album, He and Christian have created undulating peaks and valleys within the genre effortlessly shifting between club dance tracks and classic R&B pop. Jon is looking forward to doing spot dates to promote the album across the country starting in January 2013, and then expand to a multi-city tour during "Castle's" shooting hiatus starting in April 2013. Jon will also have a chance to showcase his skills as a dancer during these performances. However, fans of Jon can still catch him on every week on "Castle", Mondays on ABC.

Listen to the new single "Ledge of Love" here.
