A chaotic scene unfolded at the Ohio State Fair after a ride malfunctioned during opening day — killing one person and injuring several others.
Donald Trump announced via Twitter on Wednesday that the United States military, in a reversal of an Obama-era policy, will no longer “accept or allow” transgender individuals.
“After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender [sic] in the military would entail. Thank you,” he wrote in a series of three tweets.
Police arrested McVey after his ex-girlfriend, Brittany Bullock AKA Just Brittany, filed a complaint with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office about an incident she claims occurred in April near West Side Forest in the Katy area. Bullock backed up her claim with a 20-minute recording of the alleged assault.
According to the complaint, on April 29, Bullock arrived at McVey’s residence to discuss the canceling of a dinner date.
Upon her arrival, Bullock claims McVey began to slap, punch and drag her throughout the residence while holding a pistol.
She told police the attack lasted roughly an hour and a half and said she was assaulted so many times “she eventually got sick and threw up.”
At one point, Bullock asked to go to the restroom, where she began recording with her phone. The alleged assault continued once she left the restroom.
Police said they could hear McVey state “you’re dead” in the recording as well as sounds that appeared to be slapping.
Police also heard Bullock state “why did you just push me” and “get your fu**ing hands from around my neck.” They also heard Bullock crying and asking McVey to stop.
McVey is being held without bond.
R Kelly has reportedly hired Bill Cosby’s lawyer to help him wade through the latest round of sexual assault allegations leveled against him.
Monique Pressley specializes in in civil litigation, crisis management and communications. According to The Daily Mail, she joined Kelly’s legal team following last week’s explosive Buzzfeed report alleging Kelly of holding several women in a sex cult.
Pressley previously represented Cosby in his own sexual assault case before stepping down last August.
It’s unclear whether Kelly is currently under investigation. Consequence of Sound has reached out to various law enforcement officials; the Johns Creek Police Department confirmed a welfare check back in December 2016, but Kelly’s residence was vacant when officers arrived. Other law enforcement officials declined comment.
Written by veteran Chicago journalist Jim DeRogatis, the Buzzfeed article alleges Kelly of brainwashing, grooming, and imprisoning six different women at his homes in both Chicago and Georgia. The story came to light after the family of one woman, 19-year-old Jocelyn Savage, reached out to DeRogatis. Three members of Kelly’s inner circle subsequently corroborated the parents’ allegations. Savage’s parents say their daughter has completely cut off communication with them and they fear she is suffering from Stockholm Syndrome.
In a subsequent interview with TMZ, Savage disputed her parents’ account, saying, “I am totally fine. I’m happy where I’m at. Everything is okay with me.” She said she hasn’t spoke to her parents in “five or six months” due to “everything they’ve been causing, problems in my life, saying [I’m a] hostage and being held against my will.” However, she became flustered and refused to answer TMZ’s questions regarding her whereabouts and whether or not she’s with other people.
For his part, Kelly released a terse, threatening statement through his other attorney, Linda Mensch. “Mr. Robert Kelly is both alarmed and disturbed at the recent revelations attributed to him,” the statement reads. “Mr. Kelly unequivocally denies such allegations and will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name.”
Lil Wayne was completely caught off guard by Drake’s new tat honoring him when his prodigy sent him a photo of it … 5 months ago!!!
That’s right … Drake’s new arm ink went unnoticed for almost a half a year, at least to the general populous. We’re told Drizzy got it while overseas and sent Wayne a pic when it was done, and Wayne was beyond floored and honored, since loyalty’s a big deal with him.
The tat’s on Drake’s tricep, so it’s covered by the average t-shirt, which explains why no one picked up on it sooner.
As for returning the favor, no word yet on that … space on Lil Wayne’s already heavily tatted bod is pretty limited.
A woman who accused Usher of exposing her to herpes now confirms she contracted the STD.
The “U Got It Bad” singer, after a $1.1 million settlement with a woman who claimed he infected her with herpes, now faces a $20 million lawsuit from a second woman, who just days ago filed suit for $10 million and has now upped her demands after finding out she contracted the disease, TMZ reports.
Jane Doe, as she is referred to in the suit, reportedly found out the results on Saturday and was “devastated,” according to the gossip site. She increased her demands after learning she tested positive, citing emotional distress, medical bills and punitive damages, according to TMZ.
She claims she performed oral sex on Usher and had sex with him while using a condom during an April encounter in Atlanta, and that the pair then had unprotected sex days later in New Orleans, TMZ reports.
She insists she never would have slept with Usher if she was aware he was infected.
The suit alleges Usher never warned the woman that he was carrying the herpes virus — and she only recently learned she could be infected after reading recent reports that the “U Got it Bad” singer paid $1.1 million to another woman who claimed the R&B star infected her with herpes.
RadarOnline published documents pertaining to the 2012 settlement, in which the stylist accused him of infecting her.
The suit alleges Usher Raymond IV was diagnosed with herpes in 2009 or 2010 — around the time he split from his first wife Tameka Foster.
The “Confessions” singer married a former executive chef for “The Cosby Show,” Grace Miguel, in 2010.
Usher has yet to publicly comment on the allegations.
