Robin Williams has postponed the rest of his comedy tour to have heart surgery.

The release also included this statement from Williams:

“I’m so touched by everyone’s support and well wishes. This tour has been amazing fun and I can’t wait to get back out on the road after a little tune-up.”


Rihanna Chris Brown Spotted on South Beach Together

“They’re together again. They care for each other,” an unidentified source gushed to the magazine.

“While Chris is reflective and saddened about what happened, he is really happy to be with the woman he loves,” the source said.

The relationship apparently started warming up again after Brown called Rihanna last week to wish her a happy 21st birthday. Rihanna then reached out to Brown.

“She doesn’t care about her image. She is so in love with that boy that it doesn’t matter,” said a source.

Brown, 19, has been lavishing Rihanna with jewels, designer shoes, a handbag and the video game “Guitar Hero” in an effort to make up.

“It doesn’t matter what he buys her, though,” said the source. “She loves him. For his part, he knows he screwed up and he is going to try like hell to make sure it doesn’t happen again.”

Rihanna’s father, Ronald Fenty, said he’s OK with them getting back together.

“I love my daughter with whatever road she takes. I’m behind her win or lose. I will be supportive,” Fenty told Us Weekly magazine’s Web site from his home in Barbados.

A Brown rep had no comment and Rihanna’s publicist couldn’t be reached.

Brown, a rising star with a huge teen fan base, was charged with making criminal threats following a reported attack on Rihanna after Clive Davis‘ pre-Grammys party on Feb. 8.

A picture of a bruised Rihanna with swollen lips was leaked on the Internet last week, apparently from Los Angeles police files, and added credence to widespread reports that she was the woman involved.

The assault on the eve of the Grammy Awards caused both stars to cancel their scheduled appearances.

It sent shockwaves through the music industry, stunned fans of the couple who had been dating for about a year, and rocked Brown’s career.

“Goodies” singer Ciara reportedly ditched plans for a duet with Brown and has hinted she’ll leave his vocals out of her single, “Turntables.”

Rapper Flo Rida has already pulled his collaboration with Brown on his upcoming album “R.O.O.T.S.” and a Sacramento radio station has banned Brown’s songs from rotation indefinitely.

The incendiary singer also is said to be omitted from promo clips for the upcoming movie “Bone Deep.”

Rihanna returned to her family in Barbados and Brown issued a statement Feb. 15 saying he was “sorry and saddened” about the incident and was seeking counseling

“The Climb” was first performed by the teenage pop sensation last January 19.  Of course, many remember this as the “Kids Inaugural: We Are the Future” concert held in Washington, D.C.  It was the free gig celebrating the presidential ceremony of Barack Obama.  Miley Cyrus was joined by her fellow Disney stars, the Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato and Corbin Bleu, for the event.

Her movie “Hannah Montana” is due for release in theaters April 10, 2009.
