Brown holds high-end yard sale at his Los Angeles home

LOS ANGELES — Chris Brown held a high-end yard sale Wednesday at his Los Angeles home, with hundreds of fans, gawkers and bargain-seekers waiting for hours to try to get a piece of the singer's stuff.

Brown posted a flyer on his Instagram and Twitter accounts Tuesday night that included the address of his suburban mansion in the Tarzana neighborhood of the San Fernando Valley.

Brown burst onto the music scene as a teen in 2005. He's had dozens of hits and won a Grammy Award in 2011 for best R&B album for "F.A.M.E." But in the past decade, he's also been known for a stream of highly publicized run-ins with law enforcement, starting with a felony assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 to which he pleaded guilty.

People began gathering late Tuesday for the sale at his house. A long line that stretched down the sidewalk began slowly moving late Wednesday morning toward a driveway filled with large canvas canopies shading rows of clothes.

Tribute to late singer Cassidy planned in Florida

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Two years after the death of former teen idol David Cassidy, the new owners of his Fort Lauderdale home plan to post a plaque honoring him.

Thomas L. White, who co-own the home known as Casa de Mayan, says the tribute is meant to recognize Cassidy's achievements as a singer, actor and horse racing enthusiast.

White tells the South Florida SunSentinel he knows Cassidy still has millions of fans because he hears from them all the time.

The plaque will be unveiled Nov. 21, the anniversary of Cassidy's death from liver and kidney failure. It will be placed on the exterior wall and open to public viewing from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. that day.

Cassidy rose to fame as the star of "The Partridge Family" in the 1970s.
