DEMI LOVATO IS THE FACE OF MENTAL HEALTH IN NEW CAMPAIGN
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- When Demi Lovato was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, she was actually relieved. She says she "felt very, very depressed."

Lovato is sharing her story and encouraging others through Be Vocal: Speak Up For Mental Health. It's an effort to improve treatment options and erase the stigma around mental illnesses. The initiative was launched yesterday by a pharmaceutical company, the National Alliance on Mental Illness and other mental-health advocacy groups.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A claim that Michael Jackson molested a boy has been tossed out of court. Choreographer Wade Robson says he was molested as a child and sued Jackson's estate.

Robson had previously denied that Jackson molested him and testified in Jackson's defense in a criminal trial in 2005. Robson then sued Jackson's estate in May 2013, claiming he didn't realize the long-term damage until he had a pair of nervous breakdowns.
