PARIS—Investigators focused Tuesday on a possible inside job in the theft of more than $10 million worth of jewelry from Kim Kardashian West, after taking her chauffeur that night and his brother into custody.
Three Paris officials, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss the ongoing investigation, confirmed the arrest of the driver and his younger brother among 17 people taken into custody. Michael Madar, 40, and Gary Madar, 27, worked for the same livery company, according to two of the officials.
A spokeswoman for the reality star said she had no comment after Monday's arrests.
LONDON—George Clooney didn't vote for Donald Trump and doesn't think he's the right choice to run the United States. But he hopes Trump succeeds in office.
"We have to hope that he can do a decent job, because when the president of the United States fails, really terrible things happen," Clooney said Monday at London reception for Syria rescue-workers documentary "The White Helmets."
Clooney, who supported Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in the presidential contest, said the United States has generally been lucky in its presidents.
"I think we're going to be a little unlucky now," Clooney said. "I can only hope for the best."
LOS ANGELES—Mariah Carey is blaming producers for her bungled performance on "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve," saying, "They foiled me."
Carey says on her Twitter page that the show's production team had technical issues and her ear monitors didn't work. Carey stopped singing during her live New Year's Eve set as pre-recorded vocals continued to play behind her.
"Thus it turned into an opportunity to humiliate me and all those who were excited to ring in the new year with me," she says in the minute-and-a-half long audio statement posted Sunday with the hashtag #thefoilers. A Carey spokeswoman confirmed the authenticity of the post.
