Justin Bieber warned not to drive Can-Am Spyder on path

Justin Bieber has been warned by police not to drive his Can-Am Spyder on the sidewalk again.

The 20-year-old singer, who is currently on probation, was accused of "putting other people's safety in jeopardy" after he was captured on video illegally driving the three-wheeled motorcycle dangerously close to pedestrians on the sidewalk to avoid traffic in Beverly Hills yesterday.

A spokesperson for the Beverly Hills Police Department told E! News: "We highly encourage Mr Bieber to stay off the sidewalk and remain in traffic. This is incredibly unsafe. He's putting other people's safety in jeopardy."

He also said that such reckless driving is a "vehicle code violation, which is an infraction."

According to gossip website TMZ.com, which obtained the video footage, the Heartbreaker hitmaker, who is believed to have rekindled his relationship with Selena Gomez again, merged off the sidewalk at an intersection, and came close to crashing into an elderly woman with a walker.

Justin is on two years probation stemming from the egging of his former neighbour's house in Calabasas, California earlier this year and was also recently ordered to perform five days of community service and attend 12 weeks of anger management classes.

Gwyneth Paltrow 'happy' for Chris Martin

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin "both just want the best for one another."

The Iron Man 3 star, who announced her separation from the Coldplay frontman, 37, in March after 10 years of marriage and recently started dating Glee co-creator Brad Flachuk , reportedly isn't surprised he is now romancing Jennifer Lawrence, as she believes she shares "some amazing similarities" with the 24-year-old Silver Linings Playbook actress.

A source told E! News: "Gwyneth is very happy for Chris, that he has moved on and found someone else. Their split has been remarkably amiable and they both just want the best for one another."

The 41-year-old actress, who has daughter Apple, 10, and son Moses, eight, with the Magic hitmaker, "can see why Jennifer is a good match for Chris."

The insider explained: "Chris is very drawn to her personality, and ambition and talent. There are actually some amazing similarities between Jennifer and Gwyneth and how they view life and career, and so Gwyneth knows that ultimately Jennifer has the power to make Chris happy in the long term.

"And that's all Gwyneth wants for Chris. They might not be a couple anymore, but they will always be co-parents and best friends."

The Inbetweeners' Kiwi connection

They may have shot the sequel to the phenomenally popular first Inbetweeners movie in Australia, but the co-director of The Inbetweeners 2 movie, which hits New Zealand cinemas on August 28th, says he would love to film here.

Two of the stars of the TV ONE sitcom about a group of school boys negotiating life, girls and peer pressure were, along with the co-director Iain Morris, in Auckland for the premiere of the second movie this week.

Morris wrote two episodes of the Flight Of The Conchords sitcom back in 2007, including one episode which saw Jemaine's character risk ostracism for dating an Aussie.

Morris says he's "desperate to make films here. One of my best mates is Taika Waititi, I had lunch with him and I'm in awe of everything he does. I love his films so much. I'm still good friends with Bret and Jemaine. I'd love to come here and make something with them. I went to stay with Bret in Wellington a year ago and he showed me all the Wellywood stuff and the studios, and it's incredible. It's an incredible set up. The trick is to find a film that I can make in New Zealand because I can't imagine anything better than shooting here."

The Inbetweeners 2 sees the trio of Simon (Joe Thomas), Will (Simon Bird) and Neil (Blake Harrison) re-locate to Australia after getting a message from Jay (James Buckley) who's revelling in a gap year down under.

The second film's already been a box office smash in its home country and raking in nearly 8.6 million dollars in its first two weekends.

But despite the success, stars Simon Bird (who plays Will) and Joe Thomas (who plays Simon) have ruled out any future outings for the hapless four.

Bird knows they made the same promise after the release of the first film:  "Yeah, we did say it last time, but every time we've said we meant it, it wasn't like a line. We genuinely didn't realise the first film would be such a massive hit. We did this second one as a bonus, a thank you to the fans but we knew going into this it would be the end, because it's about characters who are at a certain age, and we can only do that for so long - I think it's come to its natural conclusion."

Bird says he never expected the show would be a hit: "I had no concept of the show being as popular as it was and it's sort of grown at every stage. For us to be in New Zealand promoting the sequel to our number one movie is flabberghasting."

The Inbetweeners 2 is in New Zealand cinemas from August 28th.
