Lindsay Lohan Completes House Arrest

Stephen Dunn/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- With the removal of a GPS ankle bracelet, Lindsay Lohan is again a free woman.

The 24-year-old actress' 35 days of home confinement came to an end around 10 a.m. PT Wednesday.

She still needs to complete 480 hours of community service. The Mean Girls and Machete star will continue working at a Los Angeles-based women's shelter and will also spend some time working at the Los Angeles County Morgue.

Her rep Steve Honig insists she's "very focused" on finishing her service.

Lohan has expressed her desire to put her most recent run-in with the law behind her.

The actress was sentenced to four months in jail in May for violating her probation in a 2007 drunken driving case when she reportedly swiped a necklace from a jewelry store earlier this year. She pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor theft charge and was allowed to serve time under home confinement thanks to overcrowding at Los Angeles' only women's prison.

Tracy Morgan Offends Mentally Disabled

Andrew H. Walker/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Tracy Morgan is in hot water again for comments he made during a stand-up routine.

The nonprofit organization The Arc is demanding an apology from the comedian for remarks he made during a performance at a New York City comedy club on Saturday.

E! Online reports during the 30 Rock star's second show at Caroline's, Morgan told the audience not to "mess with women who have retarded kids."  He reportedly went on to say, "Them young retarded males is strong.  They're strong like chimps."

Morgan then reportedly followed that with a joke about hooking up with a girl he labeled as "a cripple" on a dialysis machine who had a prosthetic arm.

The Arc's CEO, Peter Berns, told E! News, "Tracy Morgan should apologize immediately.  This quote is far too offensive to be excused as comedy, and it is very hurtful to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families."

The Arc promotes and protects the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Saturday's stand-up appearance was Morgan's first performance since his infamous homophobic rant in Nashville, Tennessee on June 3.  Morgan has apologized several times for his anti-gay comments.

Halle Berry Claims Gabriel Aubry Violated Custody Agreement

Steve Granitz/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Halle Berry and her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry are headed back to court to hash out another child custody issue regarding their 3-year-old daughter, Nahla, reports TMZ.

Berry claims her baby daddy has violated the rules of their custody agreement, and she alleges that Aubry has been negligent in his care of their child.

Berry was in court Tuesday morning with her attorney Laura Wasser, who gave the custody judge legal documents detailing all of Aubry's alleged violations. The judge scheduled a future hearing on the matter because Aubry was not present in court to defend himself.

The former couple spent much of the early part of 2011 hammering out child custody terms for their daughter, and the matter seemed to be resolved, at least temporarily, at a hearing in April.
