Anthony Weiner reports to prison to serve out his sentenceAfter many years of publicly humiliating himself due to his sordid and illegal extramarital affairs, Anthony Weiner is finally going to prison for sexting and underage girl. He reported to prison this morning at the Federal Medical Center in Devens, Massachusetts. The facility offers treatment for sex offenders. Weiner will serve a 21- month sentence for sexting a 15- year old girl. There is a potential for early release for good behavior. He would get 15% of the 21 months if he complies by all rules while serving his time.

The New York rep. resigned his U.S.House seat in 2011 admit a sexting controversy and while that was being investigated, it was found that one of the multiple women he was sexting with during that time was a 15 year-old girl.

He was sentenced last September for transferring obscene material to a minor. Th judge said that the crime was a result of a “very strong compulsion”. During his trial, Weiner stated that he was undergoing therapy because he acknowledged that he was a very sick man. At sentencing in Manhattan federal court, his attorney Arlo Devlin-Brown said his client likely exchanged thousands of messages with and estimated hundreds of women over the years. He was communicating with up to 19 women when he begun communication with the teenager.

It was reported that he spent yesterday with his son to be ex-wife, Huma Abedin, and 5 year-old son. She filed for divorce after his guilty plea for sexting the underage girl. During their first divorce hearing, Abedin’s lawyer asked the judge to keep the divorce proceedings private for the sake of their son. The judge did not rule from the bench on that request at the time but said that, “I appreciate the parties’ request to keep this as quiet as possible, but as a practical matter, it does not appear to me that despite your attempt to have this be anonymous, it’s particularly anonymous.”

 

Carmelo Anthony and Wife La La Have Split After Seven Years of Marriage

carmelo-lala- separated In sad celebrity divorce news, this one comes as kind of a shock. After seven years of marriage, NBA star Carmelo Anthony and wife La La have called it quits after 7 years of marriage. The separation comes after a rumor started to make its way to the public that the reason behind the split is that Carmelo got another women pregnant. The basketball star is alleged to have slept with a stripper who works at a gentlemen’s club in New York.

TMZ broke the news that Carmelo knocked up another women who is now 6.5 months pregnant. TMZ also heard from multiple sources close to woman say that she believes that Carmelo is going to be paying for all medical expenses and any other baby related costs. There have been rumors that the marriage has been on the rocks for a long time and this pregnancy is certainly not the straw that broke the camels back but it is just another reason why this marriage was doomed.

There are no divorce papers filed yet but the couple has been living separately. La La moved out of the family home and has been living in New York. The couple has a 10 year old son named Kiyan. They have both acknowledge that their marriage has had its ups and downs. La La told Access Hollywood last year that, “If anyone says in 10 years you don’t go through ups and downs, they’re lying to you. We’re in a real relationship. We have our ups and we have our downs, but we definitely work through them, and we’re great right now.”

The original story behind the split had to do with the possibility of Carmelo being traded by the New York Knicks. It was reported that Carmelo was stressed out about a potential trade and it put a huge strain on their marriage and it seems now that most likely its because he got another girl pregnant.

 

Johnny Depp has yet to pay $7 Million Divorce Settlement to Amber Heard

in Divorce by

amber-heardWhen Johnny Depp and Amber Heard divorced last year, the tabloids were rocked when it came out that the reason for the divorce was due to the fact that Depp was both physically and verbally abusive to Heard.

When Heard filed for divorce last May, she accused Depp of being abusive and photo and video evidence of his alleged abusive behavior surfaced including a bizarre story about Depp writing messages to Heard in his own blood.

Here is a recap: when Johnny Depp and Amber Heard reached a settlement in their divorce case, which was scheduled to go to trial, Heard withdrew her petition for a restraining order against Depp and dismissed the domestic-violence case against him “with prejudice,” which means “she can never re-file it.” Heard got $7 million in the settlement which she then committed to donating the money to the ACLU and Children’s Hospital.

Well, TMZ published a very misleading article that stated that Heard was not going to donate that money to the charities. The headline of the article, “Amber Heard: CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL MONEY MIA.”, stated that she hasn’t given a dime to the charities and that “We’re told Heard and Depp have not signed the final settlement documents so everything has now stalled. Our sources say the main hang-up is that Depp wants to pay the money directly to the charities but she wants the money sent to her. Heard does not want Depp to get a tax deduction.”

Well that article is misleading and false. In reality Depp is refusing to follow through with the payment. Some rumors around the celebrity gossip mill is that TMZ has close ties with Depp and ran the article in retaliation to a domestic violence PSA that Heard released a few days ago. Although she does not name Depp during the video, everyone knows who she is referring to during the PSA. And the ACLU confirmed that Heard paid the money three days after the divorce settlement. Heard did deliver the advance under the assumption that Depp would pay the settlement. She was also preparing to donate to Children’s Hospital when Depp started to rethink the terms of the settlement.

Heard’s attorney, Pierce O’Donnell said that “Johnny is obligated by the settlement to pay Amber, and she in turn will honor her pledges to Children’s Hospital and the ACLU.”
