Justin Bieber Meets Young Fan Battling Leukemia

DISNEYLAND/MARK ASHMAN(SALT LAKE CITY) -- An online and social media campaign helped a young Utah girl battling leukemia meet Justin Bieber on Saturday.

The Deseret News reports 7-year-old Millie Flamm had planned to attend Justin's concert Saturday in Salt Lake City until she suffered a relapse two weeks ago.  The newspaper reports her relapse prompted friends and family members to enlist thousands of Millie’s supporters in an online campaign to encourage the singer to meet her.

As late as Saturday morning, Millie's mother, Amanda, wasn't sure the meeting with Justin would happen, and didn't even know if her daughter would be able to meet him because she was running a fever and was on oxygen.

Then, at the last minute, a private meeting was arranged. Millie’s mother tells the Deseret News, "All of a sudden it pulled through and we were able to do a really intimate little meeting with just her and us and Justin and it was incredible and he was so sweet to her.”

Amanda described the meeting to the newspaper, "[Justin] walked in and [Millie's] whole face just lit up, and she turned around and hugged her dad, and then he ran over and came next to her and gave her a big hug."

Justin sang his song “Baby” to Millie and gave her a guitar pick. He then gave her a kiss on the cheek before leaving.  The newspaper reports Millie told her mom, "You are never going to wash my face again."

A photo of Justin and Millie with the caption "Look at this bundle of joy...I love her," appeared on the singer's Instagram page.

Millie will continue her treatment re-energized, according to her mother, who added, "I have no words. There is no way to say thank you to everybody who helped make this happen," she said. "I have no words but thank you, and that's not enough."

Kat Von D Granted Long-Term Restraining Order Against Obsessed Fan

Albert L. Ortega/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- A judge has granted Katherine von Drachenberg, who is better known as tattoo artist Kat Von D, a three-year restraining order against an obsessed fan who was allegedly harassing her, reports TMZ.com.  The man, named Michael Nunn, allegedly sent her creepy messages on Twitter, went to her house uninvited, called her phone constantly and repeatedly showed up at her public appearances.

Kat had already been granted a temporary restraining order against Nunn.  In her legal papers she said that he exhibited "delusional and paranoid tendencies, including the belief that the FBI is watching him."  Now, the judge has ruled that the restraining order will be extended until 2015, which bans him from coming within 300 yards of the tattoo artist at all times and prevents him from contacting her in any way.
