Wilson proceeded to sit next to Styles before she leaned over to hug him and then turned that hug into something…more. "I got accused of sexually assaulting Harry Styles," Wilson told Ellen when she appeared on the show today (February 18th).

Wilson said "these little girls, I think they were about 12, were very, very unhappy with that." When Wilson tried to mollify the situation on Twitter, she just made things worse.

I told [the girls] that on Twitter and then, they just sent me more death threats."

Selena Gomez Threatens To Quit Instagram Over Justin Bieber Drama 2016 In Review

(Radio.com) Selena Gomez Threatens To Quit Instagram Over Justin Bieber Drama was a top 16 story from Feb 2016: Selena Gomez has had it with Instagram. The singer is threatening to quit the social media platform after fans twisted what she meant as a fun post into something about her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber.

Gomez filmed herself singing along to Lil Wayne's track "Single," and hilariously responding to all of the lyrics Wayne shares about his girl. When he raps, "She hate it when I do that s-," Gomez says in a no-nonsense voice, "I did!"

And when he raps, "And when I get home she goes through my s-," she exclaims, "I sure did go through that motherf--'s s-!" Gomez finishes off the video post by shouting at the end, "I'm single!"

When her fans started talking about the connection to Bieber, Gomez fired back. "Thats (sic) a joke. I was singing back to Lil Wayne. My life isn't about my ex," she wrote in a comment (via Seventeen Magazine). She followed up that retort with another: "I want to delete my Instagram. There's no drama. Everyone else creates drama. Including this post."

Although it looks like Gomez has since removed the video that led to the comments, @SelenaGomezNews captured the video before it disappeared forever, and shared it via Twitter on Thursday, February 25th. Check it out here.

(Radio.com) Timbaland Camp Denies Charity Event Champagne Claims was a top 16 story from Feb 2016: Timbaland's camp has denied a report from NY Daily News that he refused to perform at a charity event because his favorite champagne wasn't served.

After being hired to perform several songs at Detroit's Club Bleu last Thursday, the venue's promoter, Mitchell Jaworski, claimed that Timbaland refused to perform because he asked to have Armand de Brignac ("Ace of Spades") champagne and was, instead, served Dom Perignon.

"They had about 15 bottles of liquor and champagne, which is extremely excessive especially for a charity event," Jaworski told the Daily News. "They seemed more concerned about getting every drop of liquor."

After the contract calling for a performance was shown to management, Timbaland took a position behind the DJ booth and bobbed his head to the music for thirty minutes. He "just stood there in defiance," reports the NY Daily News.

But, according to Timbaland's camp, that was not the case. "Unfortunately, the statement made by the promoter in Detroit is simply not true," Timbaland's rep tells Billboard. Read the original report here.
