Sources tell the news outlet that every venue on the tour has had a picture of Robbins and has been on high alert to stop her. Sources also say that the Soundgarden singer was informed of the arrest before the show.
According to Rolling Stone, Robbins was arrested by the FBI in 2014 for allegedly harassing Cornell online and charged her with stalking. The Tampa Bay Times reported, at the time, that Cornell and his wife believed Robbins had entered their Miami home in 2013. The Cornells also pulled their kids out of New York public schools out of fear that Robbins would hurt them. Read more here.
"My heart speaks, I ain't seen you or bin' with you for weeks, but I see online that you've begun to be a good girl and take trips with your boyfriend, being attentive continue to pretend," Newman sings.

So Barker is searching for an alternate form of transportation so the band can tour Europe. "Travis is looking into the possibility of taking a boat from LA, which is a very long trip," bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus told NME.
A long trip, indeed. The most convenient route from California to the UK would require two-and-a-half weeks of transportation, reported the Daily Star. "I'm on a bus for six days, travelling from LA to New York, and then I'm spending eleven days on a boat," Barker said. Read more here.
Predictably, the video was parodied by U.S. talk shows, and now BBC Radio 1 crafted a brilliant spoof of the instantly iconic video by assembling a team of A-listers to shoot scenes in bed together.
The list is long, but features Justin Bieber, Nick Jonas, Meghan Trainor, Carly Rae Jepsen, 5 Seconds of Summer, Troye Sivan and more. All of the stars play themselves, fully-clothed and prepared to have a laugh at the absurdity of Kanye's set-up.
"I really really really really really like you," Jepsen purrs to Nick Jonas. "This is fun," he says intimately. Watch the stars parody Kanye's here.
Coldplay shared a video of Chris Martin performing Prince's "Sometimes It Snows in April" with English folk singer Lianne La Havas at Copenhagen's Telia Parken From Wednes night (July 6). The band as a whole sits out the tribute, letting La Havas' acoustic guitar provide the only backing.
Although the crowd appreciates Martin's at-time shaky but still steady vocals, they absolutely go wild when La Havas approaches the mic and lays down her singular style. It's a sentimental moment honoring one of music's greatest. Check out the clip here.
The family released the following statement via a GoFundMe page set up by Christina's manager.

"This is definitely empowering moms to have fun. Being a mom and having a career, taking care of yourself and still being able to be flirty and fun and a little naughty sometimes – there's nothing wrong with that," Fergie said, according to Billboard. "Society tries to tell moms what they should and shouldn't be, and it's just a little freeing to have fun with pushing those limits a bit. I might do it a little bit more than others, but that's just who I am."
Fergie added that it was a delight to work with the powerful, visible, much-followed ladies in her mom squad. "These girls are insanely beautiful and they're all doing great things. These women, they were just having so much fun on set, giving their best 'Got Milk' ad if you will," she said. "It was just great." Read more here.
At the time, 50 claimed $36 million in debts against his $20 million in assets, creating a $16 million hole. A judge has now approved his plan for climbing out of that hold, reported the BBC. Here's the math:
Lastonia Leviston, the woman from the sex tape judgment, has agreed to accept a reduced settlement of $6 million. That could subtract $1 million from 50's total docket of liabilities.
50 is on the hook to pay creditors with unsecured claims between 74 and 92 percent of what he owes. That could potentially bring the total bill down to between $11.1 million and $13.8 million.
The restructuring plan will begin with a $7.4 million down-payment-style installment to be disbursed among various creditors. Read more here.

He's had surgery on his hip and back as a result of the condition. Carlile says: "This past Sunday I was finally baptized, after taking 28 years to realize God's work playing out in my life and that I had to get out of the middle of the road and fully follow Him.
"Trying to do things my own way completely left me stranded. Relying on my own perseverance and strength was not enough. His grace has been overwhelming, and with every obstacle I've faced I'm proud to say my hope through Him is what has pushed me to continue on, and to keep fighting." Read more here.
"It's so crazy to think about touring with Weezer," he tells Radio.com. "Because that's a band that I grew up with. 'The Blue Album' and Pinkerton were huge for me; I learned how to play drums and guitar to those records. And they hold such a special place for me."
Besides the fact that he's a Weezer fan, Urie is happy to play in front of audiences that may not be totally familiar with Panic! "It's kinda why I love playing festivals too; there's something about having to prove yourself. People that came to see Weezer, I wanna see what kind of reaction I can get from them. I wanna pull some kind of visceral reaction. I wanna shock people, I wanna impress people."
Urie recently spoke with Radio.com about another time when he played in front of someone else's audience when he made a surprise appearance during Halsey's set at Coachella. He says that his music tastes expand from pop to alternative rock, and far beyond that. Read more here.
In the brief 45-second video, Blink-182 are set to open for Mumford & Sons during an evening show. But–as they say–while the cat's away, the mouse will play. With Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker and Matt Skiba away doing something else, Mumford & Sons overtake their dressing room and have a rollicking good time pretending to perform "Brohemian Rhapsody."
Things, of course, get awkward once Blink-182 returns and catches everyone red handed. The video's quick edits and zoom-in shots make for an added chuckle. If you're wondering why Mumford & Sons decided to be Blink-182 for a day, it's all an ad for the latter's new album California and to promote their upcoming tour. It just goes to show that beneath every earnest, emotional folk band there's a ranging alt-rock band waiting to get out. Watch here.

Atkins has a brief role in the film, he tells Radio.com, but it's a memorable one. At first, however, he wasn't sure he wanted to sign on for the film. "They called me to come do this movie," he says. "I was up in the Northwest, we were on tour somewhere, and my agent called. She's like, 'There's a little part in this movie that they want you to come and do. It would just require you to be there for one day. You can fly to New Orleans and do it for one day.'"
"So I said, 'I really don't want to fly down to New Orleans to do just one scene in a movie.' So she says, 'Well, you get to throw a guy around the lobby of a hotel.' I said, 'That sounds like fun, but still'' And she says, 'It's [Mark] Wahlberg that you throw around.'" "'OK, I'll go.'"
As a plus, he got to chat with one of Wahlberg's famous co-stars: "It was a fun day, I got to meet Kurt Russell, [but I] didn't do any scenes with him." Read more here.
