Sheryl Crow adopts second baby boy

NEW YORK -- Sheryl Crow is the mother of another baby boy.

The singer-songwriter announced Friday that she has adopted another son, Levi James, who was born April 30.

The 47-year-old shared the news on her website, and her publicist confirmed the adoption.

She wrote that ''Wyatt has a new little brother!'' referring to her 3-year-old son, who is also adopted.

The Grammy winner has also appeared on ABC's ''Cougar Town'' this year.

'Idol' DeWyze to sing anthem at Game 2 of NBA Finals

NEW YORK -- Lee DeWyze is going from one championship to another.

The ''American Idol'' winner has been tapped to sing the national anthem at Game 2 of the NBA Finals in Los Angeles, where the Lakers have a 1-0 lead on the Boston Celtics in the best-of-seven series.

DeWyze follows in the path of other ''Idol'' winners who have performed at the NBA Finals.

DeWyze won the ''Idol'' crown last week.

NYC man guilty of burglary in Kirsten Dunst handbag heist

NEW YORK -- It was a real-life remake, with a different ending.

A mechanic was convicted Friday of burglary in the theft of Kirsten Dunst's $2,000 designer purse and actor Simon Pegg's cell phone and other items from a chic hotel, a 2007 heist that forced the co-stars to twice play the part of witnesses.

James Jimenez, who said he just tagged along on what he thought was a co-defendant's legitimate errand, was convicted of trespassing after a trial last fall. But that jury deadlocked on the more serious burglary charge, spurring a retrial that brought the actors back to the witness stand this week.

Their roles were simple: They explained that their possessions disappeared from a SoHo Grand Hotel penthouse suite they were using as a lounge during filming for ''How to Lose Friends & Alienate People,'' and that they didn't know the men they later saw ambling around the penthouse floor on surveillance video.
