SLY STONE WINS LAWSUIT

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Sly Stone of Sly and the Family Stone has won a big award in a breach-of-contract suit against his business partners. A Los Angeles Superior Court jury has ruled Stone's ex-manager Gerald Goldstein, attorney Glenn Stone and Even St. Productions owe Stone $5 million. Stone's attorneys argued Goldstein and Glenn Stone convinced Sly Stone to become an employee and co-owner of the company in 1989 so they could get at his royalties. Attorneys for Goldstein and Glenn Stone had argued Sly Stone didn't have any royalties because he owed millions to the IRS. Goldstein and Glenn Stone plan to challenge the ruling.

MORE ON THE BLINK-182 SITUATION

UNDATED (AP) -- There's more back-and-forth between the members of Blink-182 over what's going on with the band. Guitarist Tom DeLonge writes on Facebook he was asked to drop all his projects to do a Blink-182 album in six months. DeLonge says he couldn't break contracts already in place for his other projects. He says, "Never planned on quitting, just find it hard as hell to commit." Bassist Mark Hoppus tells Alternative Press DeLonge enjoys being on stage but other than that, he doesn't want to be in Blink-182.

NICK JONAS EXPLAINS "JEALOUS"

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- There was only one woman Nick Jonas considered casting in the video for his song "Jealous" -- his girlfriend. She was the one who inspired the song, after all. Jonas says they were out together and a guy was staring uncomfortably long at her. Rather than get upset, Jonas wrote a song about it. He says jealousy is a feeling that isn't good but everyone has at some point, so it's a relatable song.

PROSECUTOR DENIES IMMUNITY CLAIM IN GREGG ALLMAN FILM CASE

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) -- A prosecutor denies ever promising immunity to a crew member working on a film based on Gregg Allman's autobiography. District Attorney Jackie Johnson says in court papers assistant director Hillary Schwartz was only promised that anything she said in an interview would not be used against her. Schwartz is one of four people charged with involuntary manslaughter and trespassing after a train slammed into a railroad bridge last February where the crew was filming. A camera assistant was killed. Schwartz wants a judge to dismiss the charges, saying prosecutors offered her immunity in exchange for an interview, then charged her anyway.
