LBN HISTORICAL COMMENTARY By JOHN LENNON:
The Gossip Girl star who wore a black blazer with a gray T-shirt underneath held court at a back table but also bounced around the club talking to partygoers.

Azoff-owned ATC Aviation got another $229,542 from Ticketmaster for the two months last year when he used an ATC plane.
While he's still alive, Azoff takes good care of his family:
