WAYNE NEWTON SUED OVER MONKEY BITE

LAS VEGAS (AP) _ Wayne Newton is being sued by a woman who claims Newton’s pet monkey bit her daughter. Jocelyne Urena says in her lawsuit that the monkey attacked her daughter, Genevieve, during an invited visit in October, 2017 to Newton’s former estate home, Casa de Shenandoah. The girl’s age and the nature of her injuries were not detailed in the complaint, filed yesterday in Las Vegas. Casa de Shenandoah was opened as a tourist attraction in 2010 that features Newton’s animals, including Arabian horses, flamingos, penguins and a sloth. Newton and his family sold it to investors and moved to another home in 2013. The lawsuit seeks at least $15,000. Newton’s representatives did not return requests for comment.

“ABBEY ROAD” CROSSWALK CRAMMED WITH BEATLES FANS

LONDON (AP) - Beatles fans marked the 50th anniversary yesterday of the taking of the photo of the band members crossing the street for the “Abbey Road” cover - as in, a LOT of Beatles fans. Thousands of people crowded the crosswalk in the St. John’s Wood neighbourhood of London to take their own photos. When photographer Iain Macmillan took The Beatles’ photo in 1969, a police officer stopped traffic. The band members crossed back and forth three times, and only six photos were taken. This time around, the crowds made it nearly impossible for any traffic to get by. The Beatles will release a 50th anniversary edition of “Abbey Road” on Sept. 27.

VANESSA CARLTON FINDS HER TEENAGE SELF TO PLAY CAROLE KING

NEW YORK (AP) - The hardest part for Vanessa Carlton about playing Carole King in the Broadway musical “Beautiful” was getting back to the goofiness she had as a teen. Carlton says both she and King had an energy where they believed the world was their oyster, but that was “before people sort of beat it out of you.” The first time Carlton did the show, she cried at the end. She said her thought was, “I did it! Now I have to do it 79 more times.”

TITO JACKSON IS READY FOR HIS SOLO SPOTLIGHT

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ The reason you never heard much from Tito Jackson is that he wanted to be a family man. Jackson was the only member of The Jackson 5 not to release a solo album, until he finally did in 2016 with “Tito Time.” He’s working on a second album that he hopes to release next year. He says he purposely did not pursue a solo career so he could raise his three sons. He says now he’s doing things that some would have done 20 or 30 years ago, and he’s aware of those who doubt his talent. He singles out Charles Barkley, who once said, “Just tell me, if Tito wasn’t in The Jackson 5, would you really miss him?” Jackson says he tried to do the right thing and raise his sons as good young black men, and now his time has come.
