FILE - This Oct. 10, 2013 file photo shows a truck entering the Foster Farms processing plant in Livingston, Calif. The Obama administration is overhauling poultry plant inspections for the first time in more than 50 years, a move it says could result in 5,000 fewer foodborne illnesses each year. The final rules announced Thursday would reduce the number of government poultry inspectors by around a fourth. But those that remain will focus more on food safety than quality, requiring them to pull more birds off the line for closer inspections and encouraging more testing for pathogens. There would also be more inspectors checking the facilities to make sure they are clean. (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli, File)

The Daily News reports that Ne-Yo has sued onetime manager and confidant Kevin Foster in Manhattan federal court. Foster started handling Ne-Yo’s finances in 2005. The lawsuit says Foster moved some of Ne-Yo’s money without permission. It also alleges that Foster faked Ne-Yo’s name on loan documents and invested Ne-Yo’s money in a water company that was teetering on the edge of bankruptcy. It seeks $4.5 million plus $3.5 million in fees that the singer says he paid Foster. (Photo by Richard Shotwell/Invision/AP, File)
