British rocker Gary Glitter, 61, will be detained in Vietnam for up to three months as investigators look into allegations that he had sex with underaged girls, prosecutors announced last week. Though he so far hasn't been charged with a crime, Glitter reportedly was detained Nov. 19 at Ho Chi Minh City's international airport while attempting to catch a flight out of the country.
