They've been engaged for eight months, but Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are already on the rocks, if a recent report is to be believed.The 23-year-old Australian actor allegedly cheated on the singer with 35-year-old Mad Men star January Jones, according to Star magazine. The tabloid reports the pair got 'hot and heavy' at a pre-Oscar party last weekend.
Liam was pictured arriving to the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood without Miley. January Jones was also at the event, and apparently the actors were seen getting cosy when they thought others weren't looking. 'It looked like they had some hot chemistry. They were all over each other – and they even kissed!' a source said. MailOnline has obtained a picture of the actors in the back of the same car after partying Saturday evening.
Getting cosy? January Jones and Liam Hemsworth were seen partying at a pre-Oscar bash at Hollywood's Chateau Marmont last weekend
Miley meanwhile turned up solo to Elson John's AIDS Foundation gala on Sunday night. The 20-year-old singer and actress recently gushed about her relationship with Liam in the new issue of Cosmopolitan magazine. Asked what she values most in her life, she said she is most proud of her connection with her fiance.'Number one is my relationship with Liam,' she said, contrasting their relationship to the ups and downs of her music career: 'That's what I feel the most confident in because you never know; there's so much hype behind my new record, but it could come out and, worst-case scenario, everyone f***ing hates it.'
Fueling rumours: The pair were seen in the back of the same car after an evening out
She also used the word 'hubby' to describe the actor, which set tongues wagging as to whether or not the couple have already tied the knot in secret.Clearly smitten with Liam, she said she often finds herself struck by how good-looking he is.‘I'll literally look at him and be like "You are hot, dear god!"’ she said. ‘The other day, I turned on the pool heater and it was steaming, and he walked outside and took off his clothes and jumped in the pool.‘I was like, "I'm gonna faint – the hottest guy of my life is in a steaming pool. This looks like a Playgirl shoot." So I took a photo and made it the background on my phone. My best friend grabbed my phone and was like, "Who's that? He is so hot!" That's my hubby!’A spokesman for Liam has yet to reply to MailOnline's request for comment.
Engaged: Miley Cyrus and fiance Liam Hemsworth grab a coffee in Toluca Lake, California on December 22, 2012
Jones is no stranger to making headlines with her relationship drama.
It was reported last month the actress had called time on her relationship with writer/director Noah Miller.
The couple, who met on the set of their new film Sweetwater last July, are said to have split before their relationship even got off the ground.
A source told UsWeekly the Mad Men actress kept the break-up under wraps for a long period of time, adding that they were over 'a while ago'.
January has spoken in the past about dating someone in her industry, admitting it rarely seems to work.
'When you date someone else who’s in the industry someone has to make the sacrifices. And if no one's willing to, then you just have to be friends,' she has said.
The actress has yet to comment on the alleged split.
January has previously been linked to Ashton Kutcher, Josh Groban and Jason Sudekis, and has a 17-month-old son, Xander, from a previous relationship.
The identity of Xander's father remains unknown to the public after the actress chose to leave his name off of the birth certificate.

Cricket bosses should take hair samples to test for drugs after Tom Maynard died while high on a cocktail of cocaine and alcohol, a coroner said last night.Dr Fiona Wilcox made the recommendation after a verdict of accidental death was recorded on the 23-year-old Surrey cricketer, who was hit by a Tube train on a live rail having been stopped by police on suspicion of drink- driving last June.
Westminster Coroners Court heard that hair taken from the scalp of Maynard was 'consistent with daily use of cocaine for a period of at least three-and-a-half months'.
Ecstasy was also found in his system, along with four times the legal alcohol limit for driving. At the end of the seven-hour inquest, Dr Wilcox directly addressed officials from Surrey and the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), saying: 'I suggest hair analysis should form part of testing for recreational drugs in sport. It shows patterns in drug use stretching back several months.'Only blood and urine samples are currently tested, meaning several drugs are undetectable within 24 or 48 hours. There are also as few as 200 tests carried out annually on around 360 county players.Surrey chief executive Richard Gould said: ‘We would welcome the idea of hair testing. It is something the ECB and the PCA (Professional Cricketers’ Association) are also looking at. If it helps us get the most complete system to protect players, we would support it. Rugby already test hair and it’s the direction we should go in.’The ECB issued a statement minutes after the jury of six women and four men had delivered their verdict in a case that has shaken English cricket, outlining a drugs policy that involves players being tested for recreational drugs. Until now, cocaine was only tested for during games, when it was deemed to act as a stimulant.
Tragedy: Maynard has used cocaine every day for over three months, according to the coroner
Court date: Friends and former team-mates Jade Dernbach and Rory Hamilton-Brown were at the inquest
'While we accept that recreational drug use is part of modern society, we do not condone it and will take all reasonable steps to prevent its use within the game,' said the ECB.'We also believe we have a responsibility to educate all our players and are committed to supporting any player who needs help in this area.'Surrey began their own investigation into conduct at the end of last season and introduced a team-wide anti-drug policy which all players and management are required to abide by. Working in partnership with the ECB and PCA, further recommendations have been initiated.'The ECB board have agreed to develop an out-of-competition testing programme to encompass recreational drugs, in co-operation with the PCA.'These measures will supplement the ECB’s existing anti-doping programme which involves in and out-of-competition testing through UK Anti-Doping in compliance with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) code and financial support which the ECB provides to the PCA for player education and support programmes.’
Ban it: Maynard's girlfriend was in attendance as the timeline to his death was put together
There have been rumours of a drink and drug culture at Surrey but Gould insisted that the club’s investigation was not prompted by those suspicions. ‘No,’ he said. ‘We looked at the broader picture of cricketers' conduct generally rather than at drugs specifically.'We found that the incident involving Tom was isolated rather than a sign of a deeper problem at the club. It was a tragedy. He was a very fine young man. The incident does not define him.’Emotion briefly overcame Maynard’s housemate and former Surrey captain Rory Hamilton-Brown, who sobbed quietly at the start of the inquest as Maynard was praised for his humour and modesty. But Hamilton-Brown, who returned to his old club Sussex as a result of Maynard’s death, regained his composure to assert that he had no idea Maynard took recreational drugs.Another close friend who drank with Maynard on the night he was killed, the England bowler Jade Dernbach, also flatly denied under oath all knowledge of Maynard’s habit. Dernbach said players could be tested ‘eight to 10 times some years’, although that does not fit with official figures.

From single colour eating to the 'drip diet' and wheatgrass shots, bizarre slimming crazes are par for the course in Tinseltown.
But there's a new fat-buster on the block, and this time, there are no oddball eating habits in sight.The new A-list diet aid of choice is the green coffee pill, which is believed to help suppress the appetite as well as encouraging fat burning.
Already believed to be using the pills are Demi Moore, Jennifer Lopez and Katy Perry, while the rest of the Los Angeles glitterati are set to follow suitThe pill, sold under the trade name Verdesse in the UK, is made from unripe coffee bean extract, and contains no caffeine - unlike green tea.Instead, the beans contain chlorogenic acids, including one that happens to be a potent natural fat-buster called 5-caffeoylquinic acid.
Slender: The petite Demi Moore is rumoured to be using green coffee bean pills to control her weight
'My clients have been going crazy for green coffee bean pills,' a well-respected Hollywood nutritionist revealed in an interview with Grazia.'They're taking Tinseltown by storm. In the run-up to the Oscars, actresses do almost anything to look as slender as possible and they're all fighting it out to have the best body on the red carpet.'As soon as this pill got a name for itself as being the new miracle weight loss tablet, word spread like wildfire among the Hollywood elite.'You're supposed to take 800mg a day but some are taking 1,600mg and insisting "it can't do any harm".'
Competitive: According to one nutritionist, awards season pressure to be the slimmest is behind the rise of green coffee bean pills among Hollywood actresses
Tinseltown trend: Pills made from green coffee beans are believed to be popular among Hollywood slimmers
Although taking double the correct dose isn't recommended, there is some evidence to support green coffee's fat-busting reputation.A study conducted by scientists from the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania found that taking the pills can help boost weight-loss by an impressive 10 per cent - even when taken in relatively low doses.Joe Vinson, who led the study, said: 'Based on our results, taking multiple capsules of green coffee extract a day — while eating a low-fat, healthful diet and exercising regularly — appears to be a safe, effective, inexpensive way to lose weight.'But not everyone agrees with Vinson, and a significant number of health professionals have come forward to outline the downsides of green coffee bean pills which can include anxiety and high blood pressure.'Side effects can include anxiety, high blood pressure and IBS [irritable bowel syndrome],' says Romi Polichino, a London-based nutritionist. 'People have suffered from any of these things, or panic attacks and epilepsy, shouldn't take them.'Worse, suppliers outside of Europe and the USA are relatively uncontrolled and some have been found to substitute cheap ephedrine for the expensive coffee extract.'The quality of these pills can vary,' adds Polichino. 'You can buy them cheaply online but who knows what's in them? I've heard that lots of them have fillers added to bulk them out.
Inexpensive: The green coffee bean pills cost just £14.95 from UK supplier, Nature's Best
Banned in the UK, ephedrine is a substance that acts similarly to cocaine when ingested, leaving the user with a racing pulse and making them hyperactive, while also suppressing the appetite.But even without the potential for ephedrine contamination, nutritionists are concerned that the pills will become popular with women who don't need to lose weight - and will suffer as a result.
'Women who are already slim shouldn't be taking these pills,' says Polchino. 'In my view, more rigorous research needs to be carried out before we start putting them in our mouths.
Celebrity fans: Singers Jennifer Lopez and Katy Perry are rumoured to use the fat-busting pills

Brides have many styles of dresses and gowns to choose from and they can have many considerations for Empire Wedding Dresses
they will choose to wear on their special day. However, every bride’s goal is to look her best during her special day. Therefore to achieve this goal she must choose a certain style of dress that will perfectly compliment and show her best features.
Empire wedding dresses must be fit for you if you have a petite figure. This style of dress will give more focus on the bust. The seams just below the bust line which run transversely towards the hem with no interruption can effectively elongate your body and thus make you seem and look taller than your real height. In general, empire dress style fits almost all types of bodies.
You can pair it with sleeves or straps that are widely set apart or with a square-shaped neckline. Similar to the A-line style, Empire dresses are also versatile in a way that it can be suitable and be modified according to the level of formality you require. This is primarily because of the area where the waistline is placed. So, empire dresses can be enhanced with other design alternatives to create the desired general appearance of the dress. An empire dress can be made with different styles and length of sleeves. It can have a set of long sleeves or bell sleeves to fit a Renaissance winter wedding. The empire dress may also be made without sleeves to perfectly suit an outdoor summer occasion.
For the best possible movement from the waistline, the dress may be made with lighter fabrics. If you want to have a romantic look, you may use layer of chiffon over your base fabric. Better yet create tiered layers or make the dress in petal-like arrangement which gently lies on top of one another at the front. You may also use lace to add texture and detail to a simple empire dress.
Accents and embellishments on the fabric can also be used to create the desired appearance or effect on the bride who wears it. This style of dress, as just mentioned is perfect for brides with smaller bust, and so to make the attention more focused on the neckline and chest, using delicate beading and capped sleeves can be created with the dress to make an illusion of a bust that is fuller.
All in all, if you have a long torso, if your legs are short or your body is shaped like a pear, you can also use the empire dress to hide your body flaws. That would make you look more fantastic.

Forget crossword puzzles and scrabble, the way to keep your brain sharp into old age is to get on Facebook, new research suggests.
Research shows that over 65-year-olds could benefit from learning how to use social networking sites
Scientists from the University of Arizona have found that over 65s who use the social networking website performed better in cognitive tests than those who simply surfed the internet or didn't use it all.
It's thought the ever-changing nature of the site - such as the constantly rolling updates - may boost mental acuity.
Adults who used the site performed about 25 per cent better on tasks designed to measure their ability to continuously monitor and to quickly add or delete the contents of their working memory – a function known as 'updating'.During the study, 14 adults between 68 and 91 who had either never used the site or used it less than once a month were set up on Facebook.
They were instructed to make 'friends' with those in their training group and were asked to post on the site at least once a day.A second group were taught to use online diary site, Penzu.com, in which entries are kept private, with no social sharing component. Before the tests, participants completed a series of tests which assessed their levels loneliness and social support, as well as their cognitive abilities.
The assessments were done again at the end of the study, eight weeks later.In the follow-ups, those who had learned to use Facebook performed about 25 per cent better than they did at the start of the study on tasks designed to measure their mental updating abilities.
Participants in the other group saw no significant change in performance.
Posting updates on Facebook may improve the cognitive performance of older adults
Lead researcher Janelle Wohltmann, from the University of Arizona department of psychology, said: 'The big difference between the online diary and Facebook is that when you create a diary entry, you create the entry, you save it and that's all you see.'[Whereas] if you're on Facebook, several people are posting new things, so new information is constantly getting posted.'You're seeing this new information coming in, and you need to focus on the new information and get rid of the old information, or keep it in mind if you want to go back and reference it later, so you have to constantly update what's there in your attention.'The researchers said they also see Facebook as a potential alternative to some online games marketed to older people to help boost mental acuity.'Those games can boring after a while, and this might be a new activity for people to learn that's more interesting and keeps them socially engaged,' said Wohltman. She added that those considering teaching their elderly relatives how to use the social networking site, should also consider their safety.'It's also important to understand and know about some of the aspects of Facebook that people have concerns about, like how to keep your profile secure,' she said.
'So I wouldn't suggest to anyone to get out and get Granny online right away, unless you or somebody else can provide the proper education and support to that person, so that they can use it in a safe way.'

When it comes to maternity wear Kim Kardashian has taken rather an unconventional approach.And while her aversion to smock dresses and elasticated waists is impressive, it occasionally leads to some rather strange outfits.The reality star stepped out in an eye-catching combination of leather trousers and an unusual dress-type top on Tuesday.
The top featured plunging floor-length sections on either side that floated around Kim's legs as she walked, but hung like trousers when she stood still.With Los Angeles experiencing a rare rainy day Kim covered up by layering a blazer on top of the dress - also in black.A pair of high black leather sandals completed the look.
Daring choice: Kim Kardashian teamed her leather trousers with an unusual top which featured floor length sections as she filled up her car at the petrol pump on Tuesday
Unusual choice: The top featured plunging floor-length sections on either side that floated around Kim's legs as she walked, but hung like trousers when she stood still
Flattering: Kim's floaty outfit skims her growing bump without revealing itDespite the unforgiving nature of leather Kim has boldly chosen to incorporate much of the material into her maternity wardrobe.Along with her collection of leather trousers, which both she and boyfriend Kanye West are fans of, Kim has also been spotted in a leather dress.The shiny black outfit clung to her pregnancy curves as she posed on the red carpet while making a brief but lucrative public appearance in Nigeria on Sunday.
While the risks of the any dangerous chemicals being at high enough levels to cause a problem are very low, Kim didn't take any chances.
The ultimate accessory: Kim matched her outfit to her huge car
However with her growing bump it is not very practical for now, with Kim's growing waistline meaning she will soon grow out of her purchases. Kim was photographed in her outfit as she left a photography studio and headed to a petrol station to fill up her car.
Once Kim welcomes her baby in the summer she may well find the wipe-clean nature of leather appealing.
Women are advised that if possible they should stay clear of the pump while pregnant, in order to avoid inhaling fumes which could affect their child's development.

She just announced that she pregnant with her first child. And Fergie stepped out for the first time since announcing her exciting news on Monday night. The Black Eyed Peas frontwoman was seen leaving her home with her husband Josh Duhamel during the evening.
The 37-year-old was still rocking her favourite leather trousers, but hid any sign of a baby bump with a yellow loose-fitting top. Her casual ensemble was rounded out with a leather motorcycle jacket lined with sheepskin and a pair of lace-up ankle boots featuring a slight heel. The singer was heavily accessorised as she wore a floral scarf around her neck, toted a large black leather Yves Saint Laurent handbag and shielded her eyes with funky round-rimmed sunglasses.

She had also slipped on some metallic Chanel gloves on her hands to shield them from the cold.
Parents-to-be: The pair were perhaps going out to celebrate after sharing their happy news
Fergie already appears to be benefiting from the pregnancy glow, and she was seen grinning from ear-to-ear, clearly thrilled after announcing her happy news. Meanwhile, Josh protectively stayed close to his wife, walking behind her. The Safe Haven actor looked handsome in a fitted white T-shirt, a plaid shirt and a pair of jeans.

Fergie has made no secret of her wish to be a mother.And the delighted singer announced that she was expecting her first child with her husband of three years on earlier in the day on Monday.'Josh & Me & BABY makes three!!!' tweeted the delighted singer, with the hashtag 'Mylovelybabybump', a reference to her hit song with the Black Eyed Peas.

Alongside her announcement Fergie tweeted childhood pictures of her and Josh, giving a glimpse as to what their child might look like.The happy news comes after the singer, real name Stacy Ferguson, was forced to speak out to deny she was expecting.
Baby makes three! Delighted Fergie, seen with husband Josh at the premiere of Safe Haven last week, announced that the couple are expecting their first child on Monday
Back in September she said: ‘[People ask if I'm pregnant] every time I fluctuate a few pounds. Like right now, I'm a couple pounds up.
‘Sometimes I go a couple pounds down and I wear the clothes that are more fitted, but people kind of look at me because they're expecting [that] it's that time.'But she told Rachael Ray: 'We do hope for children and that will be coming up, but it's not yet.’
The singer recently joked she and her hunky 40-year-old spouse were enjoying trying for a baby.
What cuties! Fergie accompanied her announcement with what appeared to be a picture of her and husband Josh as youngsters
She said: 'We'll be happy when it happens. It's not really in our hands but trying is great for our relationship.'Last year following the death of the couple's beloved rescue dog, Meatloaf, from a brain disorder, Josh revealed they were planning to start a family rather than replace the pooch.
He said: 'I think we're going to focus on our human baby first. Hopefully we'll have kids and then at some point we'll get another dog.' Fergie's Black Eyed Peas bandmate, Apl.de.ap, has previously insisted he wants to be godfather to her first child.
H said: 'Fergie's great and it would be amazing if she and Josh had a baby. I would definitely love to be godfather. It'll be one cool baby and she's such a cool lady.'

In recent weeks, she had faced a cloud of suspicion after her live-in boyfriend David Wilson died from a gunshot wound on January 13. Police have said they are investigating whether foul play was involved in his shooting.McCready revealed in an interview law month that the dog had found the bullet that killed Wilson and tried to eat it.
Scroll down for video from Mindy's heyday
Tragic: Mindy McCready, 37, killed herself on the same front porch where her 'soulmate' David Wilson died on January 13
Leading lady: Mindy McCready became an instant star in 1996 at age 20 with the release of her debut album 'Ten Thousand Angels.' She dated 'Lois and Clark' actor Dean Cain and was frequently seen on the red carpet
She told Dateline NBC: 'I didn't find the bullet, the dog did. It was in the dog's mouth. I mean, that’s a horrific things to say, but it was in the dog’s mouth.'
Tragic: This is the Arkansas house where Mindy McCready was found dead on the porch on Sunday - the same spot where her boyfriend David Wilson died one month ago
McCready had been to deny she had played any role in Wilson's death and called him her 'soul mate.' Asked by Dateline if she had killed her boyfriend, McCready responded: 'Oh my God, no. He was my life, we were each other's life.'
Her death came only days after she was released from rehab. A judge had ordered her committed to a mental health facility after she admitted she had been drinking too much. Her father said she was also abusing prescription drugs again.
McCready spent just one day in a treatment facility before she was allowed to go home earlier this month.'She was released because they think she is mentally stable enough, and she was tested for drugs and alcohol and everything came up fine,' a source toldE! News. 'Nothing illegal came up.''One of the reasons they released her is she didn't have any symptoms of what an alcoholic would have. There were no signs she had a problem to the doctor.'
Cloud of suspicion: McCready appeared on television to deny that she had anything to do with her boyfriend's death. Wilson stood to inherit $143,000 from a trust this month
Her two children - Zander, age 6, and Zayne, age 9 months - had been placed in foster care and were not home at the time of her death.Wilson was Zayne's father. McCready's mother had custody of Zander until McCready 'abducted' him in 2011 and took him to Arkansas to live with Wilson. A national manhunt ensued and McCready was fighting to regain custody of her oldest son.
MINDY MCCREADY'S STAR PEAKED WITH DEBUT ALBUM
Mindy McCready spent her life fighting to recapture the fame that she gained with her debut album at age 20.
- 1994: McCready, age 18, moves to Nashville with only karaoke tapes and dreams of becoming a star. She signs with BNA Records.
- 1996: McCready's debut single 'Ten Thousand Angels' shoots to number six on the country music charts. Her next single 'Guys Do It All the Time' became a number one hit.
- Her debut album 'Ten Thousand Angels' sells 2million copies and rises to number five on the Billboard country music charts
- 1997: McCready's second album 'If I Don't Stay the Night' reaches number four on the country charts and is certified gold. She begins dating 'Lois and Clark' star Dean Cain.
- 1999: Her third album 'I'm Not So Tough' is a commercial flop, selling less than 150,000 copies. BNA drops her from the label.
- 2002: McCready signs with Capitol records, but the label drops her when her self-titled album is a flop as well.
- 2010: McCready appears on 'Celebrity Rehab with Dr Drew.' She releases her final album 'I'm Still Here,' which rises to just number 71 on the Billboard charts and receives tepid reviews from critics.
McCready's career hit its peak in 1996 with her debut single 'Ten Thousand Angels' and the subsequent hit 'Guys Do It All the Time,' which climbed to number one on the country music charts.
Since then, she faced multiple arrests suffered drug and alcohol problems and attempted suicide twice. Earlier this month, McCready was ordered to complete up to 21 days of outpatient treatment and undergo drug and alcohol tests.McCready's two children – Zander, six, and Zayne, nine months – were removed from her home and are currently in foster care. Zayne's father was David Wilson. 'Being involuntarily committed and having her children taken away from her was eye-opening. It helped her realize she needs to focus on putting her family back together and moving forward from this tragedy,' the unnamed source told E! Online. 'She is in a better state of mind.'
Zander's father is singer Billy McKnight, who lost custody to his son after he was accused of trying to kill McCready.
McCready's spokeswoman released a statement saying: 'As you can imagine, the tragedy of David Wilson's death has been devastating and crippling to Mindy and her entire family.
'We can confirm Mindy was admitted to an in-patient facility yesterday. While taking appropriate and much needed time to grieve, her sons have been placed in foster homes where they are comfortable and cared for.
'We have no further statement at this time. Thank you for your patience, understanding and sensitivity.'
McCready struggled with arrests and drug addition after her career began to fade in the late 1990s.
She was dropped by BNA Records in after her 1999 album had disappointing sales and then dropped by Capitol Records in after her 2002 record suffered the same fate.
She was arrested in Tennessee in 2004 and pleaded guilty to using a fake prescription to buy the painkiller OxyContin.
She was arrested in Nashville in May 2005 for drunk driving and driving with a suspended license after she was stopped for speeding. Two months later, she was charged with identity theft, unlawful use of transportation, unlawful imprisonment, and hindering prosecution in Arizona.
In July 2007, she was arrested in Fort Myers, Florida and charged with with fighting with her mother.
In 2005 and 2008, she was hospitalized for attempting suicide. She was taken to the hospital in 2010 for a drug overdose, as well.

Troubled: Mindy McCready, 37, has waged a public battle with drug addiction since her career peaked in 1996
MCCREADY HAD MORE ARRESTS THAN HITS IN RECENT YEARS
Mindy McCready was arrested several times and attempted suicide at least twice after her success faded.
Her first arrest came in 2004 when she was busted in Tennessee for using a fake prescription to buy OxyContin.
In 2005, her ex-boyfriend Billy McKnight was arrested for attempted murder for choking and severely beating her.
That same year she was also arrested in Tennessee for drunk driving and charged in Arizona for identity theft, unlawful use of transportation, unlawful imprisonment, and hindering prosecution.
She was also charged twice in 2005 for violating her probation.
In 2007, she was arrested for beating her mother at her Fort Myers, Florida, home and resisting arrest.
The following week she was arrested for violating her probation.
She served a year in jail for the probation violation charges.
She was arrested for violating probation again in 2008.
McCready has been mounting a comeback in recent years, though. Her 2010 album 'I'm Still Here' was praised by critics for McCready's vocal prowess.
She also appeared on Celebrity Rehab with Dr Drew as she attempted to work out her drug issues.
On the show's website, VH1 made references to her personal problems and even pegged the root of her troubles on her relationships.
Her biography on the show's page says: 'Although she was arrested and jailed for trying to buy OxyContin with a false prescription and attempted suicide with an overdose of drugs and alcohol, Mindy believes her only true addiction is to violent relationships.'
Wilson's death continued to cast a cloud on McCready because the sheriff's office did not immediately rule the death a suicide.
Detectives say they are awaiting autopsy, ballistic and toxicology reports to determine how, exactly, Wilson died.
The MailOnline revealed that he was due to inherit $143,000 just weeks after he killed himself.Wilson was set to get the first of three installments from a $430,000 trust fund that was left to him when his mother Charlotte died in 2008.The money would have arrived on February 11, which would have been his 35th birthday.The developments raise further questions as to why Wilson would harm himself at a time when life seemed to be going so well.He bought a new truck three weeks before his death and was living with his son Zayne, nine months.McCready had denied point blank any involvement in his death and she is not being treated as a suspect in the case. But police in Cleburne County are still investigating and have ruled nothing out. Their initial conclusions hours after the incident were that he shot himself dead.
Custody battle: Zander, 6, was at the center of a tug-of-war between McCready and her mother, who had legal custody
The inheritance appears to date back to his late father Robert who died in 1986 at the age of just 48 whilst working for Shell.Wilson himself would have been just eight at the time.When his mother Charlotte died in 2008 at the age of 68, her $906,000 estate was split between Wilson and his brother Mark, apart from $45,000 she gave to charity.On Wilson’s 35th birthday he would get just over $143,000, or one third of the pot. On his 45th birthday he would have gotten half of the remaining amount, and on his 55th birthday he would have received the rest.Wilson did not have a will, meaning that all his possessions - including his $430,000 trust fund - was slated to go to his baby son Zayne.McCready would have ‘no claim’ at all over it, according to George Wise of Little Rock, Arkansas-based probate lawyers Brad Hendricks Law Firm.
Mental health: McCready admitted to the judge that she had turned to alcohol because she could not cope with the death of songwriter David Wilson
He said: ‘Arkansas state law does not recognise common law marriages. ‘If there was no will in this case then she won’t have any rights. Cohabiting couples have no rights to each other’s property unless there is shared ownership of an asset like property.‘Given that the child is so young someone will have to petition the court to set up an estate and they will be called to administer that estate.‘It could be the person who petitions the court or it could be somebody else who administers the estate’.Mr Wise said that in cases where there were few assets, the process could be wrapped up in as little as three months.

Other than displaying the time, date and chronograph instruments, a watch says a lot about the person who wears it. Since way back when, timepieces were and still continue to be an important accessory one can wear. And although you may wear a fancy watch, you'll end up reaching for your smartphone to tell the time more often than not. It's a habit that came to be as a result of modern society. But some of us feel weirdly incomplete without wearing one. And we're not ashamed to admit that we too reach deep into our pockets for that conveniently back-lit digital clock that just so happens to be our everything device.
Our hands-on today includes the Swiss-made Tissot PRS 516 watch by a company called Tissot. You may or may not recall the name immediately, but chances are that you've seen one of their watches at a watch boutique and just about everywhere watches are sold. Tissot has been around for years and they've been in the Swiss watch making biz since 1853, which is proudly stamped on every watch face Tissot makes.
Tissot watches are known to be in the affordable category as far as known brand named watched are concerned. The PRS 516, which our friends at Ticwatches kindly let us get our hands on, is actually a part of an entire series of Tissot's Sport lineup which includes a magnitude of styles and color flavors. This particular PRS 516 model we've got here is the T0444172105100 that retails for $550, or at a more pleasant $330 over at Ticwatches. Tissot's PRS 516 is a chronograph watch with a quartz movement that features a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal surrounded by a beautiful black metal tachymeter bezel (static), and can submerged under water down to depths of 330ft/100m.
Attached is a rather bold looking stainless steel wrist strap finished off with a subtle brushed metal finish and high-polished trimmed edges throughout the watch casing, strap, chrono and crown buttons. The dial on this model is black contrasted with flaming red hands that give this watch its sporty, speedometer-like style that we really like. You can also get this same exact model with a white dial and black bezel for a more brighter color scheme. It has a 43mm case diameter that wears nicely on your wrist without looking too big or too small.
This watch is without a shadow of a doubt classy, yet it's also flashy at the same time. You have those three circular chrono sub dials that have a high level of polish which reflects light surrounding you very brightly. This probably isn't the ideal casual watch for day-to-day use as its quite hefty. Besides having chrono dials, there's a small date display, a must on any watch.
The PRS 516 is a proper analog men's watch (sorry there ladies), with that very familiar sporty watch design inspired by 1960s motorsport racing. It even has a steering wheel stamped on its case back. By no means is this a unique watch, but it's not a boring one either. In fact, we actually think the PRS 516 has a lot going on. That numeral-less watch face is very much legible, however, we're afraid to say that when night falls, you won't see a thing. While there are plenty of luminescent indicators, the don't shine quite as bright as we'd hoped. What's more is that if you take using the chronograph seriously, the PRS 516 isn't the most accurate watch to be using for such purpose. We tried retuning it, but it seems to be off my a hair.

London couturier Norman Hartnell was the man the Queen chose to dress her for all the pomp and circumstance of the special occasions in her life.
He designed her wedding dress for her marriage to the Duke of Edinburgh in 1947 and her Coronation dress six years later, as well as many of the gowns she wore on other state occasions.
His grand creations made her the very image of royalty...
The wedding of Princess Elizabeth to her third cousin, Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten, in 1947 was a long-awaited moment of glamour in the austere post-war years. Hartnell’s dress and its 15ft star-patterned train incorporated symbols of rebirth and growth
Showing due respect for a fellow monarch, the Queen introduced the rich yellow of Thailand’s Order of the Royal House of Chakri into the beaded panels of her Hartnell dress for her state visit to the South-East Asian kingdom in 1972
Flying the flag overseas has always been high on the Queen's agenda. A Hartnell dress was again her choice for a three-week visit to Nigeria in 1956, where she addressed the country’s House of Representatives
Another elegant Hartnell creation for the Queen, this time for her sister Princess Margaret’s wedding to Antony
Armstrong-Jones (Lord Snowdon) in 1960. Elizabeth was 34, and that same year her third child, Prince Andrew,
had been born
Precious memories: The sentimental value of the Queen's jewellery
Beaming a mother’s proud smile at the new-born Prince Charles in 1948, the Queen wears a flower-basket brooch on her lapel, given to her by her parents to mark the birth of a son and heir
True lover's knot: The Queen’s choice of jewellery is always carefully thought out. Close to her sister Princess Margaret, she wore this diamond brooch, inherited from Queen Mary, to her wedding. She also wore it, romantically, to the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton last year to celebrate their ‘true love’
As her ‘something borrowed’, Princess Elizabeth wore the Queen Mother’s diamond fringe tiara at her wedding to Prince Philip in 1947. Princess Anne borrowed the same tiara for her wedding to Captain Mark Phillips in 1973, right
On her 18th birthday in 1944, the young princess was given this sapphire and diamond Cartier bracelet by her parents
Left: A flower-setting for a fabulous 23.6 carat pink diamond. The original stone was mined in Africa and was a
wedding gift to Princess Elizabeth from a Canadian geologist, and set into a jonquil-shaped brooch by Cartier in
1952. The Queen wears it often
Right: Fifth anniversary gift from her husband, this diamond, ruby and sapphire bracelet incorporated entwined Es and Ps, a naval badge and two Roses of York to the Duke’s own design

She has made several sensational revelations about her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian's affair with LeAnn Rimes in her new book Drinking & Tweeting.
But now, new allegations have surfaced about Brandi Glanville, claiming that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star also 'cheated' on Eddie during their eight year marriage.According to a report inUs Weekly, Brandi is alleged to have 'cheated several times' on Eddie, 'even before' his affair with LeAnn.
Working out: Brandi Glanvglle attended a Pilates class the day she took to her Twitter to furiously deny the cheating allegations
Multiple sources are alleged to have told the magazine that Brandi 'had sex with restaurateur Harry Morton just six weeks after son Jake was born' - something which Brandi furiously denied on her Twitter page on Tuesday.'I had the baby blues after Jake was born I wasn't even hav n sex with EC let alone anyone else,' she wrote. 'Such BS but I kind of want to buy the mag now.'Sources allege that Brandi also 'hooked up' with Morton on a number of other occasions, although she denied it to the magazine saying: 'Harry and I have been friends forever and are nothing more.'
Revelations: Brandi has made explosive claims about LeAnn and Eddie's affair in her new book Drinking & Tweeting
Morton has been linked with a number of famous ladies including Hayden Panettiere, Jennifer Aniston, Lindsay Lohan, and more recently Demi Moore.
The magazine even alleges that Brandi was 'scoping out other men' on the night of her bachelorette party in 2001.
A former friend alleges she spotted former LA Lakers player Rick Fox at one bar. 'Brandi went over to Rick's table, came back and announced: "I just made out with Rick Fox."' Brandi denies the kiss.
'Brandi loves to play the victim,' one source told Us. 'But she doesn't tell the whole story.'Another insider adds: 'She wasn't proud of it and definitely wanted to keep it from him at the time. She didn't want him to think she was a bad person.'Earlier, Brandi posted a Twitter post, claiming the reports were 'grasping at straws.'She wrote: 'Apparently I cheated on eddie a few times with some Hot guys!Wow!Grasping at straws 4 yrs later a week before book is out #WISHIHAD watev'
Refuting: Brandi was busy on her cell phone perhaps taking to her Twitter page to deny the allegations made in Us Weekly
Denial: Brandi took to her Twitter page to deny the allegations calling the report 'grasping at straws'
Brandi met Eddie in a West Hollywood bar back in 1996, and told Us she believed he had 'already broken up' with his then-girlfriend, actress Julianne Morris.However, an insider told it differently: 'She stole Eddie away from Julianne.. And she complains about LeAnn being a homewrecker.'Brandi's marriage to Eddie, 39, ended in 2009 after his affair with LeAnn became public - they divorced in 2010.LeAnn was also married at the time of the affair - to backup dancer Dean Sheremet - while Eddie and LeAnn were parents to two young sons Jake and Mason. According to 'several friends close to the situation,' Eddie 'had his suspicions' during the marriage but 'Brandi swore up and down that she didn't cheat,' one friend said.
Past love: Julianne Morris had been dating Eddie before he took up with Brandi
'Finding out something like that never makes anyone feel better,' said the source close to the actor. 'It doesn't change what Eddie and LeAnn did but it paints a clearer picture of the scenario. It was frustrating to him because she had built a story around being a jilted wife.'The new allegations follow a stream of revelations from Brandi's book, including a candid recollection of the moment she first caught Eddie and LeAnn treating each other as much more than friends.
Linked: Brandi has denied 'hooking up' with either restaurateur Harry Morton (left) or LA Lakers player Rick Fox (right)
'LeAnn had "accidentally" smeared some cake frosting on her top (she was still a bigger girl and completely flat-chested at the time) and asked my husband, not realising that I was standing behind the both of them, if he wanted lick it off her,' she writes.'This woman asked my husband if he wanted to eat the frosting mess she’d dropped on her non-existent chest? He hadn’t realised I was there, either, and he laughed with hungry eyes at the suggestion,' she added.
Another life: Brandi and Eddie pictured at an event in Hollywood, California in May, 2005
A representative for Brandi has not yet responded to a request for comment on the new allegations. Drinking & Tweeting and other Brandi Blunders is scheduled to hit shelves on February 12.
Husband swap: LeAnn and then-husband Dean Sheremet, left, in 2006, and the singer with Eddie Cibrian in April 2012

Lara Stone may be pregnant with her first child, but the model's baby bump hasn't stopped her from posing in high-fashion get-ups.
The 29-year-old mother-to-be poses alongside Stephanie Seymour and Joan Smalls, wearing a look from Comme des Garcons' spring 2013 collection; a overlapping thick cotton canvas toile dress that is vaguely reminiscent of a parachute harness or straitjacket.
Styled by the provocative Carine Roitfeld, the shoot marks the former Vogue Paris editor's first fashion feature as global fashion director ofHarper's Bazaar.
Ms Roitfeld’s feature will run concurrently in all 26 international editions of Harper’s Bazaar's March issue, a magazine publishing first according to Hearst.The 58-year-old stylist collaborated with Stephen Gan, creative director of Harper’s Bazaar U.S., to conceptualize, style, and cast the 16-page spread, titled 'Carine on the Collections,' giving her own take on spring trends.

I also want to respect the traditions and mentality of each country and not shock anyone.
Baby bump: Ms Stone is expecting her first child in May with her 41-year-old comedian husband, David Williams
The French native, who was at Vogue Paris for ten years, explained that she 'tried to be a very good girl for the first issue; there is no nudity, nothing that would make anyone feel bad about anything, I tried to quite respectful to all readers.'Other labels included in the shoot's line-up are Alexander Wang, Azzedine Alaïa, Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière, Céline, Chanel , Christopher Kane, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, Jil Sander, Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane, and Tom Ford.A behind-the-scenes video of the shoot shows that Ms Stone, married to 41-year-old comedian, David Williams, was also styled in a floor-length dress from Marc Jacob's stripe-heavy show; perhaps not ideal for pregnancy concealing.

The Harper's Bazaar shoot took place in New York City, on the same weekend that Hurricane Sandy wrecked havoc America's East Coast, and was captured by up-and-coming photographer Kacper Kasprzyk

.'It was terrible because - of course this was just a fashion project and I didn't lose my house - but I couldn't get all the clothes because the plane never came and all downtown New York was totally closed.'We couldn't get to Marc Jacobs or another label because everything was underwater,' she admitted, bashfully.

In light of the exciting release of the Beats By Dre Studio HD
(yes, that Dr.Dre, of international rap fame) Project RED headphones, we ask the following: what should you consider when buying headphones? (And are Dr.Dre’s headphones any good?) The criteria for selecting headphones is generally straightforward: type, comfort, sound quality, style, sound muffling and durability are the six things that tend to differentiate one set of headphones from another. And despite the specs listed on the box, the best way to see if a pair of headphones is for you or not is actually to try them out and listen to some music.
Dr.Dre’s Solo HD headphones pass these tests with flying colours, though durability remains to be seen given how relatively new the product is; there are also some questions about sound muffling capabilities on the Solo edition, yet, for most people, its positive qualities will make these headphones a better buy than many of its similarly-priced competitors (the Beats by Dr.Dre Solo headphones usually come around £150, with a larger version for the recording studio, with better sound-proofing, available from £280). It is also worth noting that the maker of these headphones, as part of the RED campaign, donates a portion of all the proceeds to the global fight against AIDS.
The Beats by Dr.Dre Solo HD headphones offer several outstanding features that include on-cable volume control and a microphone feature so that listeners can talk on their phone (the headphones are compatible with all iPhone products) without removing their headphones. The headphones also come with a thick wire (which protects it against shorts and other sound problems) that snaps snugly into virtually any device or MP3 player. The headphones are sturdy, collapse neatly into a fraction of their in-use size, come with a plush case and cleaning cloth and — most importantly — provide a full, rich sound you’d expect from a premium set of headphones endorsed by Dr.Dre.
For many, the headphones are the perfect combination of style and substance; indeed, the red exterior and grey interior make them among the most fashion-forward headphones on the mass market and are sure to secure them appearances on music videos, television shows and perhaps a city street near you.

Planet Earth is set to have a very close encounter with an asteroid the day after Valentine's Day.
The asteroid - which goes by the catchy name of 2012 DA14 - will miss our home planet by just 17,200 miles, which is a very near miss in space terms.
The asteroid, which is about 150ft across, will come closer to Earth than the ring of geosynchronous satellites, which are in orbit about 22,200 miles above the Earth.
Space rock: Although it will come uncomfortably close to the Earth, the asteroid will only be visible if you have a good pair of binoculars
Although the asteroid is small, if it were on a collision course with Earth, it would produce the equivalent of 2.5 megatons of TNT.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN AN ASTEROID HITS: THE 1908 TUNGUSKA EVENT
On June 30 1908, in a remote part of Russia, a fireball was seen streaking across the daytime sky.
This event – now known as the Tunguska event – is believed to have been caused by an incoming meteor which exploded in the atmosphere.Evenks natives and Russian settlers in the hills north-west of Lake Baikal reported a column of bluish light, nearly as bright as the sun, moving across the sky.
About 10 minutes later, there was a flash and a sound similar to artillery fire.
Eyewitnesses closer to the explosion reported the sound source moving east to north.
The sounds were accompanied by a shockwave that knocked people off their feet and broke windows hundreds of miles away.
The majority of witnesses reported only the sounds and the tremors rather than the sighting of the explosion.
The explosion registered on seismic stations across Eurasia.
In some places the shock wave would have been equivalent to an earthquake of 5.0 on the Richter scale. It also produced fluctuations in atmospheric pressure strong enough to be detected in the UK.
Over the next few days, night skies in Asia and Europe were aglow - and all of this came from a meteorite exploding some four to six miles above the Earth's surface.Says Don Yeomans, manager of the Near-Earth Object Office at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory: 'The generally agreed upon theory is that on the morning of June 30, 1908, a large space rock, about 120 feet across, entered the atmosphere of Siberia and then detonated in the sky.'
And this is just one of some 500,000 rocks circling the Earth.The good news is that scientists say that that isn't enough to wipe out life on the planet - but it could wipe out a city the size of Greater London. However, a miss is as good as a mile, and unless you're specifically looking for it, you almost certainly won't see the asteroid.
NASA says that it won't be bright enough to see with the naked eye, but that a good pair of binoculars or a telescope should be able to pick it out.On the 15th, said NASA, the asteroid will travel rapidly from the southern evening sky into the northern morning sky, with its closest Earth approach occurring about 19:26 UTC when it will achieve a magnitude of less than seven, which is somewhat fainter than naked eye visibility.
About four minutes after its Earth close approach, there is a good chance it will pass into the Earth's shadow for about 18 minutes or so before reappearing from the eclipse.
When travelling rapidly into the northern morning sky, 2012 DA14 will quickly fade in brightness.
The best view for astronomers will be from Indonesia, says NASA, while stargazers in Eastern Europe, Asia and Australia should also be able to get a good look at the space rock as it whizzes past us at a speed of 17,400mph.
The asteroid was discovered only last year, by astronomers in southern Spain.The team was operating from the La Sagra Sky Survey observatory near Granada in Spain. The observatory uses automated telescopes to track small asteroids and comets.2012 DA14 was discovered after the astronomers decided to search areas of the sky where asteroids are not usually seen.Its orbital period around the sun is very close to our own, at 368 days, and it has made a close approach every year.
This year's is the closest, say scientists - and the good news is that this is the closest it will get to Earth for at least three decades. Dr Gerhard Drolshagen, a near-Earth object observer from the European Space Agency's Space Situational Awareness (SSA) office, said: 'In future times the possibility of a collision cannot be completely excluded. It is highly unlikely, but the chance is greater than zero.'
The asteroid's next very close shave with Earth will be in 2046, when it will squeak by us at a distance of 37,000 miles.And there's another close encounter in 97 years' time, on February 16 2110, when the chance that it will hit the Earth is 1 in 7,692,308,000.
Near miss: The asteroid will pass closer to Earth than the ring of satellites above the planet
