    When New York City's mayor Bill de Blasio named Stacey Cumberbatch as one of his new commissioners, the New York Times was immediately on the case, revealing that she shares a history with a similarly named celebrity.

    According to the Times, the descendant of Caribbean immigrants owes her name to the ancestors of none other than Benedict Cumberbatch, the star of the PBS series "Sherlock" and films like "Star Trek Into Darkness" and "12 Years a Slave." Stacey revealed that her relatives worked as slaves on Benedict's fifth great-grandfather's plantation in Barbados. During that time, slaves traditionally took their owner's last name as their own.

    Heidi Klum has said "auf wiedersehen" to boyfriend Martin Kirsten.

    A rep for the "America's Got Talent" judge confirms to Yahoo that the couple has broken up after a year and a half of dating.

    The romantic relationship between Heidi, 40, and Martin, 41, began while he was serving as a bodyguard for her family.

    "Martin was there for her during a challenging time in her life and it was something she will always be grateful for," a source tells People.

    People reports that Heidi and Martin have ended their professional relationship as well.

    Klum was previously married to singer Seal from 2005-2012. The couple separated in January 2012 and became officially divorced in April 2012. They have three biological children together.

    While Seal and Heidi's split seemed amicable at first, things got ugly later that summer when he accused the supermodel of cheating on him with Martin.

    Klum was also wed to stylist Ric Pipino from 1997-2002, with whom she has a daughter.

  • Meet the newest member of the Hinds County Sheriff's Department. (AP Images)In "The Blues Brothers," Dan Aykroyd — along with his sidekick John Belushi — memorably tried to evade the law. Now, Aykroyd is the law.

    The 61-year-old Canadian actor was sworn in as the newest member of the Hinds County Sheriff's Department's reserve squad on Friday. The ceremony took place at the group's Jackson, Mississippi, headquarters during which the "Ghostbusters" and "Spies Like Us" star received a uniform and badge.

    "It's an honor to join these ranks today," the star said humbly during his swearing in. "I understand the challenges that law enforcement face in today’s world."

    And Aykroyd, who previously served two law enforcement agencies in Louisiana for almost 16 years, said he wouldn't be scared to roll his sleeves up if duty called.

    "If there's some raid and I have to go in and do some negotiation, or I have to do something that requires me to be on the front line, my experience there is obviously very limited — I've acted in this reserve capacity in some departments

  • Teenage Intruder Arrested at Selena Gomez’s Home

    Selena Gomez has a scare at her house in Tarzana, California. (George Pimentel/GC Images) Justin Bieber isn't the only star having run-ins with the cops. On Saturday police responded to a call from the home of Selena Gomez (who — in case you forgot — happens to be Justin's ex). But it wasn't the raven-haired beauty who was accused of breaking the law; officers had received word that there was an intruder on her Tarzana, California, property.

    According to reports, one of Selena's family members saw a young man wandering around the house that morning and called 911. Police arrived and arrested 19-year-old Juan Daniel Garcia on suspicion of trespassing shortly thereafter, at 9:25 a.m., the LAPD has confirmed to Yahoo. As of now, it remains unclear how long he had been lurking around before he was first spotted.

    For his part, the teen allegedly told the cops that he was there to see Selena in person, though officers would not confirm if the "Come and Get It" singer had been home at the time of the incident. Garcia's bail was set at $1,000.

    Jess started out her series of charming pics by posting a shot with her fiancé Eric Johnson, which she captioned, "Date Day! Thank God he likes me in a ponytail... Duh ;)." The busy parents likely didn't escape from their kiddos for too long though.

    Shortly after, the "Fashion Star" judge joked that her daughter, Maxwell, was busy "raiding mom's closet" and snapped a photo of her in a pair of huge cowgirl boots. The tiny tot, who is the spitting image of her A-list momma, was rocking her fashionable footwear with a diaper.

  • The Upside of Being Justin Bieber

    Justin Bieber (WireImage)The bad news is a 19-year-old male was arrested for drunken driving in Miami Beach, Florida, on Thursday. The good news is the 19-year-old male was Justin Bieber.

    For all the downsides there may be to growing up in the spotlight as a teen idol or child performer, there are plenty of upsides, too. For one thing, the numbers are definitely in your favor. If the day of the Bieber incident was an average day in the United States, then, per federal government data, there were about 3,300 DUI arrests nationwide. Of those, approximately 3,299, or 99.997 percent, did not involve Grammy-nominated prodigies.

    This particular stat is of no comfort to Bieber because he, in fact, did represent the .0003 percent of the day's noted DUI cases. But on the plus side, the pop star's Forbes-estimated career earnings of $58 million teamed with his apparent means to rent a yellow Lamborghini Spyder suggest he'll be able to shoulder the estimated $8,000 in costs associated with
