Adam Levine takes supermodel to be his lawfully wedded wife

Posted: July 22, 2014

EVEN IF you're not a big fan of weddings, the nuptials of Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo sounds like it was a pretty good time.

The destination affair was at Flora Farms, in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

A number of the bridesmaids were Victoria's Secret models.

Stevie Nicks performed at the reception.

The ceremony was officiated by Levine's longtime friend, Jonah Hill.

"Jonah was hysterical," an unnamed source told E! News. "He was telling so many jokes, but then in the middle would be so sweet and sincere.

"He also talked about how sweet Behati is and how perfect they are for one another," the source said.

Additionally, Behati's dad, a minister, also gave a blessing during the "loose, romantic and fun" ceremony.

How loose? Although the bridesmaids wore white dresses, the groomsmen wore black Hawaiian print shirts and black trousers.

E! News reports that Behati wore a Marchesa lace gown with spaghetti straps and silk tulle from knee to floor.

During the reception, Levine also sang with Nicks, and Behati serenaded her new husband with "Bright Eyes."

"It was kind of a bet between them," a source told E!. "He introduced her and she sang it. She had a beautiful voice."

The food was organic, the drinks were mojitos of all flavors and the couple will honeymoon in South Africa before Adam returns for "The Voice."

Get on the good foot

A judge has ordered South Carolina's attorney general to turn over documents to freelance journalist Sue Summer, who's investigating the court fight over the estate of James Brown.

Summer wants to see the records, which include the diary of the woman who said she was Brown's wife when he died in 2006, an appraisal of Brown's assets and documents about how much trustees and attorneys are being paid from Brown's estate. She requested them under the state's Freedom of Information Act.

Attorney General Alan Wilson had claimed he shouldn't be forced to release the records because they are part of different lawsuits over Brown's estate.

In his ruling, J udge Eugene Griffith Jr. said that Wilson's position is "inconsistent with both the letter and spirit" of the state's open-records act, which allows public records to be kept secret only in very specific circumstances.

Summer said that she was pleased with the order. She said that part of the reason she keeps pursuing the story is that she wants to make sure Brown's dying wish - to pay for scholarships for poor children in Aiken County and Augusta, Georgia - is done.

"It is past time for the secrecy that has surrounded the James Brown estate proceedings to come to an end," Summer said. "It is past time for the public to receive an answer to the question - after seven years, will Mr. Brown's last wishes be honored in the state of South Carolina? The needy children Mr. Brown wanted to help with his education charity are waiting for an answer."

If it's a battle between estate lawyers, greedy relatives and needy children, we're not betting on the needy children.

TATTBITS

* A 20-by-9-foot, colorful billboard from the 1937 release of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" has been sold at auction for $10,755.

The billboard was printed in England to promote the Disney animated film there. It features three scenes, the main one showing a rosy-cheeked Snow White in front of a castle, surrounded by the dwarfs and other characters from the film.

The billboard had been in a private collection. Dallas-based Heritage Auctions said it was not identifying the winning bidder.

At that price, people might think he's Dopey.

* Egypt's state news agency says that Tom Hanks has started shooting portions of his new film in the country's Red Sea resort city of Hurghada.

MENA reported Saturday that Hanks will film scenes for "A Hologram for the King" in diving areas off the coast.

The movie, directed by Tom Tykwer and based on a novel by Dave Eggers, is about a struggling American salesman who travels to Saudi Arabia to sign a contract with a wealthy monarch, but instead finds himself entangled in a series of misadventures.

Egyptian officials view Hanks' visit as a boost to the country's faltering tourism industry.

So hard to imagine why tourism is down there.

* In a sort of related story, TMZ.com reports that the Backstreet Boys have canceled a trio of concerts in Tel Aviv slated for the end of this month due to the rockets flying into Israel and the tanks rolling through Gaza.

And Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, Iraq, Iran and Libya are no travel bargains either.

It would have been the middle-aged-man band's first visit to Israel. They hope to reschedule.

* In addition to being a hit-making radio DJ, the late Casey Kasem was the voice of Shaggy on the old "Scooby-Doo" cartoon.

Now Variety reports that Kasem's body has disappeared from the Washington state funeral home where he was awaiting burial.

Kasem's daughter suspects his widow.

Ruh-roh.
