Green, whose bond was expected to be set at $30,000 late yesterday, was busted because the woman reportedly recorded him apologizing for the incident and mentioning the Mickey Finn.
Green's attorney, Blair Berk, issued a statement yesterday that Green was pleased prosecutors dropped the rape charge.
As for the drug rap, Berk said Green "will responsibly address" that in court.
Clarkson off the market
For all you guys (and gals) who feel that special way about Kelly Clarkson, it's our unpleasant duty to bust your romantic dreams: The first "American Idol" insta-star has dived into the sea of holy matrimony with Brandon Blackstock.
"I'm officially Mrs. Blackstock," Clarkson tweeted yesterday. The pair (she's 31, he's 36) got hitched over the weekend at posh Tennessee resort Blackberry Farms.
The nuptials definitely took Clarkson Nation by surprise. She and Blackstock had planned a ginormous bash befitting a pop-music queen. But the logistics started to get out of hand, and the lovebirds decided to elope.
The rush to the altar was interpreted by some fans as an admission that Clarkson was preggers. But she tweeted to the contrary: "FYI . . . Brandon & I are getting married & no I am not pregnant. We are eloping for one reason only. We both want an intimate ceremony."
Still, Clarkson has said that she has strong maternal urges, so one assumes spawn should follow sooner rather than later.
Call him The Beerber?
We at Tattle will certainly rue the day when Justin Bieber turns 21. His not-yet-legal status is the gift that keeps on giving.
Last Friday, the Wild Boy of Canada held what the supersnoops at TMZ describe as a Dos Equis fiesta inside a Texas nightclub.
Someone involved in managing the NOX Houston nightclub insisted to TMZ that The Biebs' beverage of choice was plain old H2O. But a representative of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission said a complaint alleging that Bieber quaffed Double-X was filed, and an investigation is now underway.
Not that JB has anything to fear: If it is determined that he did imbibe, he'll skate, because he wasn't caught in the act by authorities. However, NOX management would have some 'splainin' to do to save its license to peddle booze.
'Entourage' flick update
Last Thursday, Tattle reported that Mark Wahlberg, executive producer of the HBO hit series "Entourage," blamed greed on the part of unnamed parties for the holdup in a big-screen version of the show. Over the weekend, Adrian Grenier, who starred as fictional Hollywood It Boy Vincent Chase, responded via Instagram.
"To all 'Entourage' fans," he wrote, "I owe it to you to make a couple things clear. I take my role as Vince on the show & off very seriously. All decisions I make personally & for business are for the principle of friendship and brotherhood. It has, & never will be about the money for me . . . The spirit of Entourage is about sharing the opportunities given to us and I will sign any deal that gives ALL the boys an opportunity to share in the upside of success EQUALLY. I assure you, despite the perception, there is no greed in my heart."
