Celebrity Twitter Ads: Regulations, Allegations and Selling Out
by Rebecca Macatee Today 5:55 AM PDT Loading… Getting divorced is never easy, but when celebrities, fame and enormous bank accounts are involved, splitting up can get really difficult. Family law attorney Laura Wasser has helped many starsincluding Britney Spears , Ashton Kutcher, Christina Aguilera, Kim Kardashian , Angelina Jolie , Ryan Reynolds and Heidi Klum through the process of divorcing a spouse. She dropped by E! News on Tuesday, Oct. 9, to talk about her book,It Doesn’t Have to Be That Way: How to Divorce Without Destroying Your Family or Bankrupting Yourself, and explained why she treats every divorce “like a business transaction.” “[I tell clients] let’s do this in a way that we can keep your sanity and your bank accounts intact,” she said. “There’s no reason to turn this into some kind of a melodramaparticularly if you’re a famous person, because we know it’s all going to get played out through the media.” PHOTOS: Friendly exes As for why some celebrity divorce cases seem to take forever to play out? “It takes a while because you have to compile information and exchange it, and then you have to make a deal,” Wasser said. “I will say, when things take a long time, often it’s because one party or another is not really ready to cut the cord.” Andbrace yourselfany sort of “cheating clause” you throw into a prenup to protect yourself is “not enforceable!” She explained, “You cannot force someone to agree to certain kinds of behavior or to refrain from it.” Wasser’s handled a wide variety of divorce cases, but she won’t work with just anyone. “I would not represent someone that came to me with very unrealistic expectations,” she said. “And I have sent people away if they’ve said, ‘I don’t want my husband to have any custodial time with our kids,’ or if they say, ‘I understand I’m required to pay child support, but I’m just not willing to do that,’ and I say, ‘You know what, you should find another attorney and they can blow sunshine and they can tell you all kinds of things.'” “And in the end,” she said, “What I’m telling you Is you are going to share custody, you are going to pay child support, so let’s cut to the chase and make the best deal that we can given the circumstances we have.”

Celebrity birthdays for the week of Oct. 13-19
This has caused the Advertising Standards Authority (UK) and the Federal Trade Commision (USA) to investigate these types of tweets and state that adverts made via a celebrities Twitter page should incorporate the hashtag #ad. But, this raises the question of how to uphold these regulations and where to draw the line when it comes to celebrity endorsements. What if a celeb was simply tweeting their love of their new shoes or favourite restaurant without payments or promoting their own brands, television shows or records? Are Celebrities Selling Out? A Dispatches documentary on Channel 4 recently highlighted how celebrities tweeted for cash, and it seems that no one was surprised or shocked by this revelation. Many twitter users were aware of the practice and thought it naive to think that celebrities were not getting paid for their participation in tweet advertising. Celebrity Twitter Ads: Regulations, Allegations and Selling Out Celebrity Twitter Ads: Regulations, Allegations and Selling Out It seems that although celebrities are breaking ASA rules, tweeters are now savvy enough to realise that the tweet is not always a celebs own opinion. However, even when celebs use the #ad it can sometimes receive negative reactions from their followers. A recent example is that of Kate Thornton whose advert for Weetabix received a cold reception by her followers. Many stated they would unfollow the star and said it was shameful of her. Celebrity Twitter Ads: Regulations, Allegations and Selling Out Tweets which break FTC and ASA rules Kates tweet abides to the ASA and FTC guidelines on social media advertising. However, there are many celebrities who are breaking the rules on Twitter. Wayne Rooney was reprimanded for tweets about the sporting brand Nike last year, and was recently brought in front of the watchdog again due to the unclear nature of the marketing tweet . Wayne has now started to use the approved hashtag.
