Here's the Scoop...

Singer-songwriter Jackson Brown has announced he tested positive for the coronavirus and is social distancing at his Los Angeles home.

"As soon as I had a small cough and a temperature, I tested [for COVID-19,]" Browne, 71, told Rolling Stone magazine Tuesday.

"My symptoms are really pretty mild, so I don't require any kind of medication and certainly not hospitalization or anything like that."

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee retweeted the article.

Several other entertainers have disclosed they have the virus, including Younger actress Debi Mazar, opera singer Placido Domingo, talk-show host Andy Cohen, Hollywood couple Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Luther star Idris Elba, Lost alum Daniel Dae Kim, Quantum of Solace actress Olga Kurylenko, Bachelor Colton Underwood and former Game of Thrones cast-mates Indira Varma and Kristofer Hivju.

'Wonder Woman 1984' set for Aug. 14 theatrical release

Warner Bros. has announced it is delaying the theatrical release of Wonder Woman 1984 -- starring Gal Gadot -- from June 5 to Aug. 14 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"When we green-lit WW 1984 it was with every intention to be viewed on the big screen and are excited to announce that Warner Bros. Pictures will be bringing the film to theaters on August 14th," Warner Bros. Motion Picture Group chairman Toby Emmerich said in a statement Tuesday. "We hope the world will be in a safer and healthier place by then."

The studio released on streaming services Tuesday its films Birds or Prey and The Way Back -- which had opened this month, but lost their audiences when movie theaters closed.

The closures are part of an effort to keep large crowds from forming in the hopes of stemming the spread of the coronavirus, which has killed more than 15,000 people worldwide.

To provide entertainment for people social-distancing at home, Disney+ said it would release Onward on April 3 and Universal is making Emma, The Hunt and The Invisible Man available on video-on-demand services April 10.

Warner Bros.' announcement regarding director Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman 1984 crushed the hopes of those hoping the studio would release the film directly to home video.

Other potential blockbusters such as A Quiet Place 2 and No Time to Die have also had their theatrical release dates changed in recent weeks, instead of going straight to streaming.

Comedian Kevin Hart and his wife Eniko are expecting their second child together.

"Baby #2 in the midst of all of this we're counting our blessings and couldn't be more grateful! soon to be a family of 6! #glowingandgrowing," Eniko wrote in an Instagram message Tuesday, alongside a photo of her showing off her baby bump, while wearing a sheer slip.

"Harts #FamilyOfSix #Blessed #LiveLoveLaugh," Kevin captioned the same image on his own account.

The couple are already the parents of a 2-year-old son, Kenzo Kash.

Kevin has a 15-year-old daughter Heaven and 12-year-old son Hendrix from his previous marriage to Torrei Hart.

Kevin recently has been social distancing at home with his family amid the COVID-19 health crisis.

He told TV talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres in a video chat last week that he has been trying out material for his stand-up comedy routine on his loved ones and growing his hair gray.

Which late artist's tribute concert is coming to CBS on April 21?

Bill Rieflin, drummer for R.E.M., King Crimson, dead at 59

Bill Rieflin, a drummer who worked with bands R.E.M., King Crimson and Ministry, has died at the age of 59.

R.E.M., Ministry and Robert Fripp of King Crimson confirmed Rieflin's death on social media Tuesday.

"It is with heavy hearts we acknowledge the death of our dear friend and consummate drummer, Bill Rieflin," Michael Stipe of R.E.M. said on the band's official Facebook page.

"He is among all the the fine points of the stars and we are looking up with love - and with our own reverence for his beauty, his humor, his relentless curiosity and of course his incredible musical ear, his time here with us so precious and golden," he continued.

"Today we lost a wonderful artist, tremendous human being and an integral part of Ministry's developments and success...Safe travels my brother on the way to your next universal gig," Ministry said on Twitter.

"Fly well, Brother Bill! My life is immeasurably richer for knowing you," Fripp said on Facebook.

No cause of death was announced, however, singer and guitarist Robyn Hitchcock said on Twitter that Rieflin died following a long battle with cancer.

"The great Bill Rieflin has changed hotel rooms for the last time - after a long battle with cancer he checked out and left us today. Musical genius and bleak perfectionist, Bill graced me with his drumming, harmonies and laser-sharp insight between 2005 and 2013. RIP dear boy," Hitchcock said.

Krist Novoselic of Nirvana also paid tribute to Rieflin on Twitter.

"So sorry to hear of Bill Rieflin passing away. A straight up person and excellent musician," Novoselic said.
