"The concerts have been canceled"

Words no ticket holding fan wants to hear.

But this is the reality for more than 400,000 Irish fans of country superstar Garth Brooks.

Brooks---who is huge in Ireland---wanted to play 5 concerts to launch his comeback.

Only 3 were approved, after residents who live close to the stadium objected.

In a statement given to the Irish media, Brooks said, 
"Five shows or none at all."

None, is what they decided.

Harry Potter fans, here is some good news for you.

Author J.K. Rowling released a short story with a glimpse at the life of 30-something Potter Tuesday.

The author posted the story on her interactive fan site.

In the story, Potter lovers hear more about the wizard's marriage to Ron's sister, his gray hairs, and that he's rocking a mysterious scar on his right cheekbone.

Apollo Nida, husband of Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks, is going to prison.

The reality star will serve 8 years, plus 5 years on parole.

In May, he pleaded guilty to charges in a fraud scheme--stealing millions of dollars.

Nida will find out how much he has to pay back to his victims next week.
