Tomb Raider star Angelina Jolie was left petrified when she was attacked by a crazed look-alike fan at the premiere of her action movie Salt in Moscow.

Jolie, 35, was grabbed by the deranged, tattooed stalker as she walked up the red carpet, but she somehow managed to wrench herself free with minders pulling the attacker away.

'Angelina looked petrified as she tried to wrestle herself from the woman's grip,' the Daily Star quoted an onlooker as saying.

Meanwhile, fans were worried about the actress' health when enlarged veins in her bony arms were exposed during a trip to Tokyo.

They feared her punishing promotional schedule was taking its toll.

A woman, who claims to be the late King of Pop Michael Jackson's illegitimate love child, has filed legal documents for a share of his estate, saying that her existence was being covered up.

Mocienne Petit Jackson claims that back in 1975, 17-year-old Jackson secretly impregnated her mother Barbara, who happens to be singer Diana Ross' sister, TMZ.com reported.

And that when she was 9-years-old, Katherine Jackson hatched a plan to "abduct" her and send her off to Belgium to protect the late singer's reputation.

In documents she filed with LA County Superior Court she also claims that all 7 of her abductors were later murdered.

Mocienne, who currently lives in the Netherlands, decided to come forward with her story so she can formally claim a part of the inheritance.

She is waiting for the judge to give the go-ahead on a DNA test, and claims that she was diagnosed with Vitiligo.

She also wants custody of MJ's kids so she can give them a "more normal life".

R&B singer Rihanna has revealed that she agreed to duet with Eminem on his new track as she could relate to the song's references to an abusive relationship.

The Umbrella hitmaker lends her vocals for Eminem's new track Love The Way You Lie which focuses on domestic violence.

It features the lyrics, I laid hands on her. I'll never stoop so low again. I guess I don't know my own strength.

Rihanna admitted she instantly 'understood' the song because of her experiences with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown -- who famously attacked the singer in 2009.

'It's something that, you know, we've both experienced... on different sides, different ends of the table,' the Daily Star quoted Rihanna as telling Access Hollywood.

'He (Eminem) pretty much just broke down the cycle of domestic violence and it's something that people don't have a lot of insight on.

'I knew if he sent me a record there must be something to it. It couldn't just be, ''Oh, Duh! She was in that relationship so we have to get her.'' The lyrics were so deep, so beautiful and intense. It's something that I understood, something I connected with,' she added.
