DWAYNE JOHNSON-`SAN ANDREAS'

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Is The Rock stronger than an earthquake? We find out this weekend, as Dwayne Johnson's new movie "San Andreas" opens. Johnson's had a busy week leading up to the debut of the earthquake disaster movie. He set a "Guinness" record in London for the number of selfies taken in three minutes. Johnson says he didn't even know there was such record. And The Rock isn't about to slack off. He says he officiated at a friend's wedding, then "drank more alcohol in one night" than any other human. But he says he still got up to train the next day.

Alexandra Daddario says she was impressed by Dwayne Johnson's helicpoter-borne entrance at the premiere for "San Andreas."

JUDGE CLOSES BOOK ON LAST LINDSAY LOHAN CASE

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Lindsay Lohan is off the legal hook. For the first time in nearly eight years Lohan isn't on probation. A judge in Los Angeles yesterday signed off on Lohan's community service logs, and determined she completed her sentence. Lohan wasn't in the courtroom for the hearing. This last case stemmed from a reckless driving charge. Over the years, Lohan was briefly jailed five times and sentenced to rehab. Lohan missed a deadline last year to complete her community service. A judge earlier this year ordered Lohan to redo 125 hours of service. Prosecutors said that Lohan claimed community service credit for meeting fans of a London stage play and other questionable activities.

AP correspondent Anthony McCartney reports Lindsay Lohan has completed her sentence in a reckless driving case, and has satisfied all court requirements.

The initiative was launched yesterday by a pharmaceutical company, the National Alliance on Mental Illness and other mental-health advocacy groups.

MICHAEL JACKSON'S NEVERLAND IS FOR SALE

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Neverland Ranch is for sale. The Wall Street Journal reports Michael Jackson's former home and personal fantasyland is being listed at $100 million. The California property has a train station, six-bedroom house, 50-seat movie theater and a pair of lakes on 2,700 acres. It's been in limbo since Jackson's death in 2009. Jackson distanced himself from the ranch after a 2005 verdict that he was innocent on charges he molested children there.

MOLESTATION CLAIM AGAINST MICHAEL JACKSON'S ESTATE DISMISSED

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A claim that Michael Jackson molested a boy has been tossed out of court. Choreographer Wade Robson says he was molested as a child and sued Jackson's estate. A Los Angeles judge as dismissed the suit, saying Robson waited too long to go to court. Robson had previously denied that Jackson molested him and testified in Jackson's defense in a criminal trial in 2005. Robson then sued Jackson's estate in May 2013, claiming he didn't realize the long-term damage until he had a pair of nervous breakdowns.

Rewind Time

May 30, 2015 07:05 GMT

Today is Saturday, May 30, the 150th day of 2015. There are 215 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History:

On May 30, 1935, Babe Ruth played in his last major league baseball game for the Boston Braves, leaving after the first inning of the first of a double-header against the Philadelphia Phillies, who won both games (Ruth announced his retirement three days later).

On this date:

In 1431, Joan of Arc, condemned as a heretic, was burned at the stake in Rouen (roo-AHN'), France.

In 1814, the first Treaty of Paris was signed, ending war between France and the Sixth Coalition (the United Kingdom, Russia, Austria, Sweden, Portugal and Prussia).

In 1883, 12 people were trampled to death in a stampede sparked by a rumor that the recently opened Brooklyn Bridge was in danger of collapsing.

In 1911, the first Indy 500 took place at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway; the winner was Ray Harroun, who drove a Marmon Wasp for more than 6 1/2 hours at an average speed of 74.6 mph and collected a prize of $10,000.

In 1922, the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., was dedicated in a ceremony attended by President Warren G. Harding, Chief Justice William Howard Taft and Robert Todd Lincoln.

In 1937, 10 people were killed when police fired on steelworkers demonstrating near the Republic Steel plant in South Chicago.

In 1943, during World War II, American troops secured the Aleutian island of Attu from Japanese forces.

In 1958, unidentified American service members killed in World War II and the Korean War were interred in the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery.

In 1962, Benjamin Britten's War Requiem had its world premiere at the new Coventry Cathedral in England.

In 1971, the American space probe Mariner 9 blasted off from Cape Kennedy on a journey to Mars.

In 1980, Pope John Paul II arrived in France on the first visit there by the head of the Roman Catholic Church since the early 19th century.

In 1996, Britain's Prince Andrew and the former Sarah Ferguson were granted an uncontested decree ending their 10-year marriage.

Ten years ago: Quoting letters of the fallen from the war in Iraq, President George W. Bush vowed to a Memorial Day audience at Arlington National Cemetery that America would honor its dead by striving for peace and democracy, no matter the cost. American teenager Natalee Holloway vanished in Aruba after leaving a bar with three young men, including the chief suspect in her disappearance, Joran van der Sloot (YOHR'-uhn VAN'-dur-sloht); her fate remains unknown.

Five years ago: Joran van der Sloot (YOHR'-uhn VAN'-dur-sloht), the prime suspect in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba, was seen leaving a hotel room in Lima, Peru, where the body of 21-year-old Stephany Flores was found three days later. (Van der Sloot later confessed to murdering Flores, and is serving a 28-year prison sentence.) Dario Franchitti (DA'-ree-oh fran-KEE'-tee) drove 199 nearly flawless laps, then got a huge break from a spectacular crash on the last lap to climb back on top of the open-wheel world with a win at the Indianapolis 500.

One year ago: Beset by growing evidence of patient delays and cover-ups, embattled Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki resigned from President Barack Obama's Cabinet, taking the blame for what he decried as a "lack of integrity" in the sprawling health care system for the nation's military veterans. Six climbers went missing from Washington state's Mount Rainier; they'd apparently fallen to their deaths. Oscar-nominated actress Joan Lorring ("The Corn Is Green") died in Sleepy Hollow, New York, at 88.

Today's Birthdays: Actor Clint Walker is 88. Actress Ruta Lee is 80. Actor Keir Dullea is 79. Actor Michael J. Pollard is 76. Pro and College Football Hall of Famer Gale Sayers is 72. Rock musician Lenny Davidson (The Dave Clark Five) is 71. Actor Stephen Tobolowsky is 64. Actor Colm Meaney is 62. Actor Ted McGinley is 57. Actor Ralph Carter is 54. Actress Tonya Pinkins is 53.

RIHANNA: CONCERT SERIES STARTS WITH PARTY

MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Usually showing up late for a date will get you a less-than-warm reception. But Rihanna got cheers -- even though she was two hours behind schedule for her performance in Mexico City the other night. She started what's known as her "777" tour with an exclusive party for about 2,000 fans. She thanked fans for their patience, saying their hanging in there until she showed up Wednesday night really made her "feel loved." The concert swing will see Rihanna perform seven shows in seven days in seven different cities. Stops on the tour include Toronto, Paris, Berlin and London before ending up in New York City.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Nicki Minaj has already won a lot of awards during her career. But she says her career isn't about collecting hardware to put in her trophy case. She says the biggest draw for her being awards shows is performing before a live audience at the venue and on TV. She says that's what she will be looking forward to at the American Music Awards on Sunday. She says she has been at awards shows where she totally forgot she was up for a nomination -- until her name was read off as a winner. The way she sees it, if she keeps making good music, the awards will take care of herself. If you should happen to run into Nicki between now and Sunday, you can remind her she's up for four nominations at the AMAs.

THE SUPREMES: FORMER HOUSING PROJECT IN DETROIT TO BE RAZED

DETROIT (AP) -- They most recently were known as the Frederick Douglass Homes in Detroit. But back in the day they were known as the Brewster projects. And that was the place where Diana Ross and the Supremes grew up. Now, the housing project is about to become another memory. Detroit mayor Dave Bing says the demolition of the massive high rise apartment buildings could start early next year. The city has no set plans for redevelopment of the complex where Diana Ross, Florence Ballard and Mary Wilson lived before signing with Berry Gordy's Motown Records in the early 1960s. Bing says he knows the former Brewster projects have "a lot of history" -- but has since "become an eyesore."
