British reality-television star — from two “Big Brother” appearances — Jade Goody was awakened in her London hospital room Sunday afternoon and saw a woman with a hammer leaning over her. (Her new husband, Jack Tweed, had left the room to get a cup of tea.) The actress suffers from cancer and has been given just weeks to live.

According to the Agence France-Presse report, a 41-year-old woman was arrested for possession of an offensive weapon and was released Sunday night. The Evening Standard says the woman was believed to be French.

Without a song

James Hetfield, lead singer of the heavy-metal rock group Metallica caught a stomach bug and was hospitalized Sunday before returning to the United States from Sweden with the rest of the band to the disappointment of 16,000 fans at the Stockholm Globe Arena.

Fans learned of the illness and cancellation minutes before the arena concert was to start, AP reports. Drummer Lars Ulrich said the band members were truly sorry and added, “Trust me, none of you guys wanna hear me, Rob or Kirk sing,” referring to bassist Robert Trujillo and lead guitarist Kirk Hammett.
