tiger woods arrested for suspicion of DUIWhile most people were safely enjoying the holiday weekend, Tiger Woods had a really rough weekend. Woods was arrested on 5/29 in the early morning hours on suspicion of driving under the influence and illegally parking his car. Tiger Woods was asleep in his Mercedes-Benz when police came upon Woods in his car on the side of the road. He told the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s officer that he had been coming back from playing golf in Los Angeles.

TMZ obtained the police report and details about the 14 time major champion was observed asleep at the wheel of his 2015 Mercedes with the motor running and the right blinker light flashing. Woods foot was also on the brake. An officer then woke Woods up and he appeared to be very disoriented and his speech was slurred. Woods told the officer that he was coming back from “coming from L.A. California from golfing” but that he was unclear exactly where he was. He then changed his story and admitted that he didn’t know where he was. Woods asked the officer how far he was from his Hobe Sound, Florida, home and he also admitted he was taking several prescription medications, including Vicodin.

Woods preformed all the field sobriety tests and he failed every single one of them. He was unable to complete the one-leg stand or the nose touch. The report says when asked if he understood the Romberg alphabet test, he stated, “yes, recite entire national anthem backwards.”

According to the report, there were four different types of drugs listed under medical conditions. The drugs included Solarex, Vicodin, Torix and Vioxx. It notes Vioxx was not taken this year. It says Tiger has has 4 left knee surgeries and  four Achilles surgeries.

He was then arrested and taken to a testing facility. A second officer’s report stated that Woods was given a breathalyzer test and he did blow a 0.00 and that he complied with the requested urine test.

Late last night, Woods issued an apology to his fans regarding his arrest. Woods stated that alcohol was not involved, and that his condition resulted from “an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications.”

Dani Mathers pleads no contest in invasion of privacy caseFormer Playmate Dani Mathers had been sentenced for body shaming an older gym goer at an LA Fitness last year. She either can serve 45 days in jail or 30 days of community service removing graffiti after body-shaming a 71-year-old woman at an LA Fitness gym last July. On top of that, Mathers was  ordered to pay the woman $60 in restitution in order to replace a backpack seen in the photo in order to help protect the women’s identity.

Mathers went to court on Wednesday to agree to a plea in her criminal invasion of privacy case. When presented with the two options of either serving jail time or community service, she chose the community service.

The victim decided to not be in court on Wednesday for the court hearing. The prosecutors said the victim was humiliated by the cruel act. “Body shaming can devastate its subject,” Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer said. “People are mocked, they’re humiliated and in ways they can never fully get back.”

Mathers’ attorney addressed the media after the hearing saying that his client is happy to put this behind her. He said, “She really apologizes from the bottom of her heart for what happened. She never thought this would come out like this. Never intended to hurt anyone.”

The 2015 Playmate of the Year was highly criticized for body-shaming the woman after secretly taking a photo of her naked in a locker room at an LA Fitness. Mathers then posted the photo to her Snapchat. She captioned the picture, “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either”. Mathers claimed that she only meant to send the Snapchat pic to a friend but instead she accidentally sent it to all of her followers. The media caught wind of her Snapchat snafu and soon Mathers lost jobs and says she got severely bullied online.

 

 

New Report Claims that Johnny Depp’s Erratic Behavior Caused Chaos on the Set of New Pirates of the Caribbean Movie

Johnny depp's bad behavior caused chaos on the set of the new Pirate's movieJohnny Depp’s quirky facade has pretty much fallen away to reveal what appears to be a inconsiderate drunk. The latest report describing the chaos he caused on the set of the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie claim paint Depp to be inconsiderate and violent. His behavior caused delays in filming and caused chaos in general on the set much to the disappointment and chagrin to Disney executives and those who had been supporting Depp through these last few years.

While filming the Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales on the Gold Coast, Australia, in 2015, staff from the set reported that Depp’s ‘excessive drinking’, ‘constant lateness’ and ‘physical fights’ with then-wife Amber Heard caused mayhem on set. Multiple sources have been reporting that the actor’s agent and Pirates producer Jerry Bruckheimer fought over whose responsibility it was to make sure that Depp kept his behavior in line. These same sources claim that a staff member was allegedly tasked with watching the rented home that Depp stayed in during filming and was to alert production to his movements and when he would be coming on set.

However, Bruckheimer said Depp was under intense media scrutiny while filming and claimed that a lot of the information reported during that time about Johnny wasn’t true. One of the more disturbing stories that emerged during that time was about a fight that Depp and his then wife Amber Heard while on the phone. Heard was filming The Danish Girl and she claims that Depp cut his finger in a fit of rage when he thought that she was having an affair with Billy Bob Thornton. He then mixed his blood with blue paint and the proceeded to write on a mirror “STARRING,’ ‘Billy Bob, ‘ and ‘Easy Amber’. Bruckheimer claims that this didn’t happen and that he was pretty sure that Depp sliced his finger open because it got stuck in a car door. However, Heard had actual photos of the incident in her court papers that she filed for her domestic violence case last year.

Johnny Depp has been in a vicious downward spiral in the last few years. It is our opinion that Depp’s handlers have been helping to hide his erratic and destructive  behavior for a long time. Instead of hiding this horrible behavior, it would be in Depp’s best interest to get him into some kind of rehab. Until then, we fully expect more of this kind of behavior from Depp.

 

 

Dance Moms’ Abby Lee Miller Sentenced to a Year in Prison

in People/Scandals by

Dance Moms’ is facing a new kind of drama of a more serious nature. Almost a year and a half after she was first indicted on 20 accounts of fraud, former Dance Moms host Abby Lee Miller was sentenced today to one year and one day in prison by a federal judge in Pittsburgh. Abby Lee has found herself in some hot water.

The reality star, who rose to fame on the Lifetime series Dance Moms, was sentenced to one year and one day in prison followed by two years of supervised release on Tuesday. She was also reportedly fined $40,000 and ordered to pay a $120,000 judgment. She has 45 days to report to prison. “It’s a very serious situation when someone who files for bankruptcy isn’t truthful with the court,” Judge Joy Flowers Conti told the reality star in court.

The 50-year-old dance instructor was initially indicted in 2015 on 20 charges of bankruptcy fraud, concealment of bankruptcy assets and false bankruptcy declarations after the FBI, IRS and postal inspectors conducted an investigation. She allegedly hid more than $755,000 in other bank accounts, income reportedly stemming from appearances on the show in 2012 and 2013.

Lee Miller initially filed for bankruptcy in 2010. In the reorganization plan she submitted to the court, the reality star did not indicate she had a contract for the show. It reportedly was not until Judge Thomas Agresti spotted the choreographer on television that he canceled a hearing to discharge her bankruptcy case and requested she disclose any contracts.

“The problem here is that it looks to the court that she was hiding the ball,” Judge Agresti said at the time, per the newspaper, “and until she got caught we wouldn’t have known about this. Miller also pleaded guilty to one count of not reporting an international monetary transaction. In March, she also announced she was leaving the TV series.

While appearing in court Tuesday, she told the judge she was ashamed to be meeting this way and that she wished the judge could have taken her class. We wonder what her dance studio girls will think when they find out their teacher has gone to jail, and if she is sorry for her actions, or just sorry she got caught.  What have we learned here? It’s always better to tell the whole truth. And if you are not sure about a legal question, it’s better to investigate with professionals than making assumptions. You know what they say about assuming.

 

Stephen Colbert Doesn’t Regret Trump/Putin Joke

Stephen Colbert

Stephen Colbert has ruffled some feathers this week. Stephen Colbert responded to #FireColbert backlash over a crude oral-sex joke he made about President Donal Trump and Vladimir Putin on Monday, May 1. Trump supporters and others thought the comment was inappropriate and called for the comedian to be dropped from the CBS show. Social Media did not take kindly to Colbert’s comment on the President of the United States. He got roasted.

The TV host, 52, opened his Wednesday, May 3, episode by addressing the controversy. “Welcome to The Late Show,” he said. “I’m your host, Stephen Colbert. Still? I am still the host? I’m still the host!”

Colbert went on to explain that his scathing monologue was inspired by Trump abruptly ending an Oval Office interview with fellow CBS correspondent John Dickerson. “Now, if you saw my monologue Monday, you know that I was a little upset at Donald Trump for insulting a friend of mine,” he said. “So at the end of that monologue, I had a few choice insults for the president in return. I don’t regret that. He, I believe, can take care of himself. I have jokes; he has the launch codes. So, it’s a fair fight.”  On Monday evening, Colbert riffed on the fact that Trump abruptly ended an interview with CBS News political director John Dickerson after the journalist asked about Trump’s disputed wiretapping claims against former President Barack Obama.

“Mr. Trump, your presidency, I love your presidency; I call it ‘Disgrace the Nation,'” Colbert, who calls Dickerson a friend, said Monday. “The only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c—holster.” The joke was met with backlash from Trump supporters and conservatives, and the #FireColbert hashtag started trending on Twitter. “Life is short, and anyone who expresses their love for another person in their own way is, to me, an American hero,” Colbert said Wednesday. We can always count on Colbert to push the limits and ruffle so feathers. Just like those who don’t like Donald Trump have to deal with what he says, those who don’t like Colbert can also deal.
