  • Ja Rule admits to tax evasion

    NEWARK, N.J. — Rapper and actor Ja Rule admitted Tuesday that he failed to pay taxes on more than $3 million in income, and he faces up to three years in prison.
    The platinum-selling rapper, whose given name is Jeffrey Atkins, earned the money between 2004 and 2006 while he lived in Saddle River, an upscale community in northern New Jersey.
    If the plea conditions are met, the government will dismiss two counts against him for unpaid taxes on about $1 million he earned in 2007 and 2008.
    Atkins is scheduled to be sentenced June 13 on the three tax evasion charges. He faces up to one year in prison and $100,000 in fines on each count.

  • CHICAGO — There was no stopping “Limitless” at the box office.

Suddenly he’s cleaned up, making millions and wowing everyone he meets. Robert De Niro co-stars as a financial guru who’s fascinated by him, with Abbie Cornish as Cooper’s skeptical girlfriend.
    “Limitless” broke out of a crowded pack of new releases and holdovers to take the top spot.
