in Scandals by

Jussie Smollett on ABC News“Empire” Actor Jussie Smollett is sought for further questioning regarding his reported attack that happened on January 29th at 2 in the morning. Police have now reached back out to the actor requesting that he come back in to answer additional questions after the release of two brothers that were questioned last week about the alleged attack.

The brothers were caught on surveillance tape recorded during the time frame of the attack but the video did not capture the attack itself. The police tracked down the two men and  after questioning, they were released. The media started to report that the attack had actually been orchestrated by Smollett himself.

On January 29th in the earlier morning hours, Smollett claims that he was attacked by two men while he was walking home. He told police that he was beaten, claimed homophobic slurs, had a chemical poured on him and they put a rope around his neck. It was classified as a hate crime. Smollett also said that the men were wearing what appeared to be a MAGA hat. Smollett also claimed that a few days before the attack, he received a threatening letter at FOX Studio that contained a death threat along with the word “MAGA”.

After the attack, Smollett was interviewed by numerous outlets about the attack. The media started to question his version of the attack. He released a statement saying that his attack did happen and he was is 100% truthful in his account. It appears though that he might not have been all that truthful.

Media outlets are now reporting that the attack had been orchestrated by the actor. The police raided the home of the two brothers from Nigeria, Ola and Abel Osundairo, and found a black face mask hat, an Empire script, phone, receipts, a red hat and bleach. The brothers were questioned and released. One of the brothers has been reported to have been Smollett’s trainer.

Media outlets, after the release of the two brothers, are now reporting that the brothers told the deceives that they were paid by Smollett to participate in the attack. The brothers claim that they were paid $3,500 for the attack. The returned to Nigeria on January 29th and then were promised an additional $500 when they returned to the states.

Based on this information, deceives are now requesting that Smollett come to the police station for additional questioning. His attorneys, Todd Pugh and Victor Henderson, are denying the claims made by the brothers and released the following statement, “As a victim of a hate crime who has cooperated with the police investigation, Jussie Smollett is angered and devastated by recent reports that the perpetrators are individuals he is familiar with. He has now been further victimized by claims attributed to these alleged perpetrators that Jussie played a role in his own attack. Nothing is further from the truth and anyone claiming otherwise is lying.”

So far, Smollett has not made himself available for questioning. Celebrities who had previously voiced their support for the actor have been deleting their support of the actor on their social media accounts.

Track Palin Arrested Again for the Third Time in Three Years on Domestic Violence Charges

in Scandals by

Track Palin, to the surprise of no one, has been arrested again on charges of domestic violence. This is the third time in three years that he has been arrested for the exact same charges. Track Palin, the oldest son of ex-VP hopeful Sarah Palin, was arrested last Friday around 11:30pm. Track Palin has a history of violent outbursts so this latest came as no surprise.

Alaska State Troopers responded to a home in Wasilla last Friday after there was a report of a disturbance at the residence. When the investigators showed up at the house, they discovered that Track Palin had assaulted an unnamed female acquaintance. When she tried to call the police, it was reported that Track took the phone away so she was unable to call. When he was placed under arrest, he resisted arrest. According to the report, he was charged with fourth-degree assault, interfering with the report of a domestic violence crime, resisting arrest by force and disorderly conduct.

It was reported earlier that the incident involved the mother of his child, Jordan Loewe. He allegedly hit Loewe on her neck and head. Court records show that on Monday, she filed for a a request for a short-term protective order against Track. She was granted the protective order on Tuesday. She also filed a petition for a long-term protective order, which would last longer than 30 days and a hearing for the long-term order was scheduled for later this month.

It has been less than a year since his last arrest for domestic violence. Last December, he was arrested for attacking his father. His mother Sarah called the police and told them that she believed her son had taken some kind of medication and was freaking out. When police arrived during this incident, they found Track walking erratically around and his father was bleeding from his head. Last June, he accepted a plea deal. He plead guilty to one charge of criminal trespassing in exchange for the charges of criminal mischief and assault to be dropped. He also agreed to enroll in a therapy program which required him to undergo drug and alcohol testing.

His first arrest was in January of 2016. The police came to his parent’s Wasilla home and found him “uncooperative, belligerent and evasive,” and his girlfriend was hiding and crying underneath a bed.

He was released yesterday and must were an electronic monitoring bracelet for the time being. This is also not the first time that Loewe has filed a protection order against Track. She received one in 2016 when Track allegedly attacked her while drunk. Loewe isn’t the only ex that has filed a restraining order against Track. His ex-wife was granted a temporary restraining order in December of 2017.

 

Soon-Yi Previn Breaks Her Silence on her Marriage, Her Husband and the Allegations

in Scandals by

Woody Allen’s wife, Soon-Yi Previn has finally broken her silence in an in-depth interview with New York Magazine. She opened up about  the allegations, her marriage, her relationship with her adoptive mother and how much she disliked being painted as victim. She remained relatively quiet about the allegations until now. She has spoken out before about how she was characterized as a “slow” and “dim”  adult who was taken advantage of Woody Allen but now she has decided to show more of her story, especially her own experiences with her adoptive mother Mia Farrow.

The interview, written by Daphne Merkin, was not intended to smear her adoptive mother, but Soon-Yi felt like it was time to break her silence because of how hurt she has been by the allegations leveled against her husband by her adoptive sister Dylan O’Sullivan Farrow. In the wake of the Me Too movement, these allegations have gained new momentum and Soon-Yi felt like she could no longer remain quiet.

Soon-Yi insists that her granting this interview had nothing to do with her trying to get back at her adoptive mother but that, “what’s happened to Woody is so upsetting, so unjust. [Mia] has taken advantage of the #MeToo movement and paraded Dylan as a victim. And a whole new generation is hearing about it when they shouldn’t.”

The article also reveals details about the couple’s townhouse and their discussion over lunch about how Soon-Yi was painted as a “retard” after the affair came to light. Allen joined the interview for lunch and said that, “People think that I was Soon-Yi’s father, that I raped and married my underaged, retarded daughter.” He said that couldn’t be farther from the truth. According to the article, Mia Farrow’s point of view about the affair and everything that followed has been well distributed in the media. Also, Ronan and Dylan Farrow have been very vocal about allegations against her husband but Soon-Yi stayed silent for decades.

Soon-Yi details her relationship with her mother growing up and how the only option she had was to be perfect. She discusses with the author about how she came to be adopted by Farrow and her life growing up in China. Even from the beginning, Farrow did not come across as sincere to Soon-Yi. At one point, Farrow after she adopted Soon-Yi demanded that she make a tape of her story about being a child of a prostitute who was beaten severely by her mother. Soon-Yi refused the request and was puzzled by this because she had no recollection of being beaten by her mother.

She claims that since the beginning her mother and her were lie “oil and water”. She says that Farrow was not maternal and Soon-Yi was still traumatized by the first time farrow gave her a bath. Soon-Yi says, “I’d never taken a bath by myself, because in the orphanage it was a big tub and we all got in it. Here, it was for a single person, and I was scared to get in the water by myself. So instead of doing what you would do with an infant — you know, maybe get into the water, put some toys in, put your arm in to show that you’re fine, it’s not dangerous — she just kind of threw me in.”

Soon-Yi also recounts when she moved to the US and her time growing up in a sporadic environment. She barely received an education and by her admission she has a learning disability that made it difficult for her to advance her education. She said, “I’ve never spoken about it, because Mia drummed it into me to be ashamed about it. It comes out in spelling, and I had to work much harder in school. But I was driven and interested, and I wish I’d had a tutor the way some kids do for homework.”

She speaks of being humiliated by her mother and slapped by Farrow when she was in trouble. Both Soon-Yi and Moses Farrow has similar recollections of being broken down emotionally by Farrow through harsh words, name calling and humiliation. When asked if she had any positive memories from her childhood, she flat out said no.

The article also delves into great detail about the beginning of the relationship between her and Allen. At first, she only knew him as the boyfriend to her mother but she stated that she did not like him. At first, he was not interested in getting to know the children but over time, Soon-Yi and Allen started talking and then spending some time together by going to Knick’s games. She talks about how their relationship started to blossom when she turned 21. She said that it was a very gradual process and that she said happened over a long period time. They spent a lot of time with each other and soon an affair started. They both discussed the potential issue it would cause with the family and they deiced to keep it a secret.

But secret always have a way of coming to light and soon it was discovered that Allen and Soon- Yi were having an affair. She acknowledges that the affair was not the moral thing to do. She refers to it as, “a huge betrayal on both our parts, a terrible thing to do, a terrible shock to inflict on her.”

Soon-Yi was kicked out and cutoff from her family. She didn’t know who to trust and recalled how scared she was of Mia during this time. Mia Farrow became increasing irrational and angry. She would call Allen to tell him that Soon-Yi was threatening to kill herself, something that Soon-Yi adamantly denies ever wanting to do.

Soon, the infamous custody case took place. It became the the featured topic in tabloids across the country. The news of the allegations against Woody Allen soon become one of the most talked about cases in the 20th century. The article also says that two of Mia’s attorneys floated the idea of a $5-7 million dollar confidentiality agreement in order to keep the allegations under wraps. The next day he sued for custody and soon, the couple went public with their relationship. The author then asks Soon-Yi if she wishes she would have done anything different with the affair and she simply answered no.

The article ends with Soon-Yi talking about their adoptive children and the fact that she is a very hands on mother. Her children are older and now her and Allen have grown closer than ever. The article ends with the author stating that, “Later, as I walk home, I find myself wondering whether Soon-Yi’s voice — having finally been heard — will be listened to, much less change anyone’s opinion. It’s a gamble she’s taken by speaking out, but then again, she’s never been one to play it safe.”

Heather locklear arrested for batteryHeather Locklear is not having a great 2o18. She has been arrested again for a second time and is back in jail. She was released only days ago from an involuntary psychiatric hold and she is currently being held on $20,000 bail. She was arrested on Sunday night after two calls to 911, with the first one being around 6pm and the second one at 11pm. After the first call, the police came to the house and determined that there was no crime and left. It was after the second call, that Locklear allegedly attacked an officer.

It was the second call that the deputies made contact with Locklear and then all hell broke loose. According to the Daily Mail, Locklear attacked an officer after he tried to separate her from other people at the residence. Law enforcement stated that Locklear was heavily intoxicated when they arrived at the residence. She was uncooperative at the scene and kicked the officer that was trying to break up the disturbance. Then, EMS showed up to assess her and she kicked the EMS personnel examining her. She was then taken into custody at 11:30pm and booked at 2am for two misdemeanor counts of battery. She is due in court on Tuesday.

She was arrested back in February of this year for when she got into a fight with her boyfriend, Chris Heisser. Her 20 years old daughter, Ava, was in the house at the time of the fight. She claims that he was choking her but he says that she attacked him. She then checked herself into rehab after the incident and was attending AA meetings in California.

But that did not last, she once again became aggressive with family members and she ended up in the hospital on an involuntary hold. She allegedly attacked her parents and threatened to kill herself. Her mother was the one to call the police. It was after this latest incident that she was once again arrested.

She was booked on two counts of misdemeanor battery and is currently facing similar charges stemming from the previous incidents with the police. So far there has been no comment from Locklear’s reps.

 

Kim Kardashian Posts Controversial Instagram Ad about Appetite Suppressants

in Scandals by

Kim Kardashian flat tummy co lollipops Another day, another Kardashian in the news. Kim Kardashian is being raked through the coals for an Instagram post that she posted early today. The post featured the reality tv start sucking on a Flat Tummy Co.’s appetite suppressant lollipop with the caption, “#ad You guys… @flatummyco just dropped a new product. They’re Appetite Suppressant Lollipops and they’re literally unreal. They’re giving the first 500 people on their website 15% OFF so it you want to get your hands on some…you need to do it quick! #suckit”Needless to say, the world at large was not impressed. Kardashian currently has about 111 million followers on her Instagram account and many of them expressed their displeasure with the star. People made comments that called Kardashian “vile”, “irresponsible”, and “toxic”.

One of those most outspoken critics of the post was “The Good Place” actress, Jameela Jamil. She tweeted, “You terrible and toxic influence on young girls. MAYBE don’t take appetite suppressors and eat enough to fuel your BRAIN and work hard and be successful. And to play with your kids. And to have fun with your friends. And to have something to say about your life at the end, other than ‘I had a flat stomach.’

The actress also tweeted in celebration when the post was removed. There is some confusion over whether Kardashian took it down or it was reported as a violation of Instagram’s policies.  Jamil posted a tweet that showed a clip of Meryl Streep clapping at cheering at an awards show with the caption, “Kim took the tweet down. Well done twitter people. Bravo.” The post, however, appears to be back up.

The tweet not only angered some people but also raised some eyebrows. The lollipops have no scientific evidence to back up the claims of weight loss. There has been only one active study done of the lollipop’s main active ingredient. The study was performed in 2010 by a French researcher at a low-profile pharmaceutical company on the outskirts of Toulouse. The active ingredient is satiereal, a saffron extract that is sold as a supplement in some wellness stores that has no actual proof of living up to the claims that Kardashian made on her post. Satiereal supposedly activates a neurotransmitter that combats the urge to overeat but there is no actual scientific evidence to back up that claim.

The posted was taken down but now appears to be back at the comments are still overwhelmingly negative. People are continuing to blast her for her tone deaf message. There has been rumors that the post was taken down twice and then it reappeared. People thought that maybe she had heard their pleas and removed it out of respect but turns out that wasn’t the case. The post currently has 1,308,451 likes.
