CHANHASSEN, Minnesota (AP):

A tribute fence will be installed at Prince's famed music studio and home in Minnesota as officials prepare for fans returning on the second anniversary of the rock star's death.

The fence will be set up inside the grounds at Paisley Park, where Prince died from an accidental painkiller overdose on April 21, 2016. It will also display fan messages and artefacts that Paisley Park has archived.

Paisley Park also announced on Monday new details about Celebration 2018, the second annual gathering for Prince fans from April 19-22. Ten more guest speakers have been added, including The Revolution members Bobby Z, Dez Dickerson and Matt Fink.

The celebration includes a concert called 'Prince: Live On The Big Screen' at Target Center in Minneapolis, where fans can also leave messages on a specially erected fence.

WASHINGTON (AP):

President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, is challenging porn actress Stormy Daniel's unsubstantiated charge that someone tied to Trump threatened her with physical harm if she went public with her story about a tryst with Trump years ago.

Daniels said in a '60 Minutes' interview broadcast Sunday that a man approached her in a Las Vegas parking lot in 2011, when she was with her daughter, and said: "That's a beautiful little girl. It'd be a shame if something happened to her mom." She said the man told her to "leave Trump alone. Forget the story."

Michael Avenatti, her lawyer, acknowledged Monday he has no direct evidence tying the threat to Trump or his lawyer.

But he said he was holding back certain details of the alleged affair, including the contents of a CD or DVD he tweeted a picture of last week.

Cohen's attorney, Brent H Blakely, demanded that Daniels or Avenatti apologise to his client for alleging intimidation.
