The latest "swatting" call may have sounded a bit more realistic than previous prank calls aimed at the rich and famous.

Chris Brown's house was swarmed with police after a fake report of domestic violence was made late Monday.

According to the Los Angeles Times, a caller contacted police to report the domestic situation and said Breezy's mother may have been shot.

Officers arrived at the scene and found only members of Chris' staff in the home. Police searched the premises, and the singer's parents arrived hours later.

Swatting has become a fast-growing phenomenon where pranksters call police to see if they can get emergency response teams to swarm someone's home. The pranks often target celebrities.

Other recent victims are Tom Cruise, Kris and Bruce Jenner (who were home at the time), Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus.

According to E! News, a juvenile arrested last month is believed to have masterminded several of the hoaxes.

Atop Twitter

Justin Bieber has just topped the Twitterverse.

The "Baby" singer took over as the tweeter with the most followers, knocking Lady Gaga down to No. 2.

Both singers have more than 33 million followers, but Justin now has 4,000 more than Mother Monster, who had held the title for almost three years.

LiLo says 'no' to stardom

Cash-strapped Lindsay Lohan has reportedly turned down an offer to appear on "Dancing With the Stars."

According to TMZ, several offers were made for LiLo to join the cast of the upcoming season, but the actress has shut them down. The gossip site says the top offer was in the $550,000 range.

Lindsay, who owes tens of thousands of dollars in back taxes, has reportedly told friends she won't consider doing reality TV and wants to concentrate on films.

So no 'Titanic 2'?

Leonardo DiCaprio is reportedly letting go of his film career for the time being.

The A-lister told Germany's Bild newspaper that he's taking a break from acting.

"I am a bit drained," the 38-year-old said. "I'm now going to take a long, long break. I've done three films in two years and I'm just worn out."

Leo's back-to-back films included "Django Unchained," "The Great Gatsby" and upcoming "The Wolf of Wall Street."

But Leo isn't planning on sitting poolside sipping mai tais while he's on sabbatical. The actor has expressed interest in getting back to raising awareness about the threat of global warming.

"I would like to improve the world a bit," he said. "I will fly around the world doing good for the environment."
