Thurman thrown off horse

Uma Thurman broke several bones after being thrown off a horse earlier this week in the Caribbean.

A representative for the 46-year-old US actress (left) told People magazine: "Uma was in an equestrian accident. She was training on a young thoroughbred who got spooked."

Media reports said the injured actress was spotted "walking gingerly" into a restaurant in St. Barts. There was no other information as to whether Thurman was riding for a future film project.

Rita Ora breaks down in court

English singer Rita Ora broke down at a court hearing looking into the burglary that took place at her £1.2 million (S$2.4 million) home in north-west London on Nov 28 last year.

The alleged burglar, 26-year-old Charaf Elmoudden, was reported to have taken £200,000 worth of items such as jewellery, clothes and electronics.

The court played the recording of 25-year-old Ora's phone call to the London police during the trial.

She was heard shouting: "Don't ****ing come up these stairs, I will **** you up, you ****ing hear me!"

Earlier this year, Ora's sister Elena picked out Elmoudden at an identity parade.

He claimed he was with his partner during the time and pleaded innocent to all counts of burglary.
