Despite recent reports suggesting that Gwen Stefani is struggling to sell tickets to her “Just A Girl” Las Vegas residency shows, Gossip Cop is reporting that the pop star’s show is actually a big success with tickets flying out the door for her shows at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
The debunking came after Star Magazine alleged that Gwen had supposedly been struggling to sell tickets to her shows in Sin City since she kicked off the gigs in June.
A supposed source alleged that Stefani had “thousands of tickets” still on sale for concerts that are set to take place in just a few days’ time, while another claimed that a ticket website was supposedly “dumping them at a 75 percent discount” to try and get fans through the door to see her show.
The cover of TimeMagazine’s July issue is a controversial one, to be sure. Just days after a meeting with Putin in what many feel was Trump’s biggest presidential faux pas, Time is digging in even harder, going quite literal with the perceived blurred lines between President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
As reported by CNN, the face of Donald Trump has been overlain onto the face of Vladimir Putin, resulting in an effect where one may have trouble differentiating either face of the two world leaders.
The Time cover is an image created by visual artist Nancy Burson.
As of the time of this writing Donald Trump has not responded to the magazine cover via his usual method of twitter, nor has he responded in any other way. Typically such a brazen implication by such a ubiquitous magazine does attract the attention of the president, often resulting in angry tweets being sent out.
The fact that butterflies drink turtle tears is not necessarily a new revelation. As the Inquisitr previously reported, science has already confirmed a few years ago that butterflies are attracted to turtle tears because of their salt content — something which lacks from these insects’ diet in the Amazon.
While carnivorous animals, turtles included, get their sodium intake by eating meat, herbivores — which also include butterflies, since they only eat plant matter with a high sugar content — are forced to look elsewhere for the precious salt they need.
Which is why butterflies in the Amazon have developed the unique practice of snacking on turtle tears. And, according to the YouTube channel called World’s Greatest Animals, the insects have also developed a taste for gator and crocodile tears as well.
While we’ve known about this for a while now, the stunning sight of butterflies gathering around turtles to sip their tears never ceases to amaze and delight us.
Duchesses Kate and Meghan aren’t both going through pregnancy together, despite misleading (or downright false) claims made by a family of celebrity gossip magazines.
As the old adage goes, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” And the prospect of royal sisters-in-law both being pregnant at the same time – Kate with her fourth, Meghan with her first, twins even! – is just too juicy to pass up. And in the absence of fact, says Gossip Cop, a couple of magazines just made stuff up.
Here’s the thing: celebrity gossip magazines rely on tips and “insider sources” for their stories. Some do a better job than others at checking them out. Star and the National Enquirer, for example, are at the bottom of the barrel of reliability, according to The Atlantic, while In Touch Weekly is not going to win any Pulitzers but is generally reliable.
A 72-year-old man was beaten and left with serious injuries, and security video of the incident showed the young men who did it, reports SFGate. It happened in the wee hours of July 6 when the older gentleman was seen walking on Martin Luther King Jr. Way between University Avenue and Addison Street as he was attacked from behind by what looks to be around six to eight young men, according to the Berkeley Police Department. It was a blow to the back of the head that caused him to fall, which then led to the others kicking him repeatedly. The whole ordeal left the older man in terrible shape, practically unable to even crawl across the sidewalk.
Parents Michael and Heather Martin ran the YouTube channel FamilyOFive, and currently, they’re serving probation in Maryland for child abuse.
Yesterday, Inquisitr reported that the FamilyOFive account still actively published videos despite the scandal and 2017 conviction that resulted in the parents losing custody of their two youngest children while three older children continued living with the family. The family moved to West Virginia and continued to publish the same style of family prank videos that led to their conviction under channels called FamilyOFive and FamilyOFive Gaming.
According to a report from WUSA 9, YouTube took down the channels yesterday right after 5:30 p.m. Google released a statement that said, “Content that endangers children is unacceptable to us. We have worked extensively alongside experts in child safety to make sure we have strict policies and are aggressively enforcing them. Given this channel owner’s previous strikes for violating our Guidelines prohibiting child endangerment, we’re removing all of his channels under our Terms of Service.”
Richard Sovenski, 52, of Hayden, Idaho, has been arrested and charged for a hate crime caught on video at a McDonald’s in Coeur d’Alene on July 12. In the video, Sovenski is hurling racial slurs a group of teenagers from Spokane that were on an outing associated with Immanuel Church, The group stopped for ice cream after traveling to see a guest preacher in the area. Police Captain David Hagar officially charged Sovenski with one count of misdemeanor battery and one count of felony malicious harassment under Idaho’s hate crime statute five days after the incident took place.
Stormy Daniels told the police officer arresting her that no one had warned her about Ohio’s strip club laws before a performance that got her taken to the clink earlier this month.
As ABC News reports, the Columbus, Ohio Police Department on Thursday released body-camera footage from the adult film star’s arrest. The footage shows the 39-year-old Daniels (real name: Stephanie Marie Clifford) being cooperative with officers as her bodyguards stood nearby. One of her bodyguards asked if he could ride with Stormy in the police van to the station; he was denied.
The otherwise mundane video shows simple police procedure. Other than Stormy protesting that she wasn’t aware of the law that got her into trouble in the first place (more on that in a few paragraphs), neither Daniels nor the other two women arrested with her that day – Miranda Panda and Brittany Walters – resisted or argued.
Law enforcement officials out of Kazakhstan have confirmed the brutal slaying of Olympic figure skater Denis Ten. According to People, the Kazakh medalist was attacked by two alleged thieves who were attempting to steal the mirrors off of his vehicle. The three men reportedly argued before the stabbing occurred.
A passerby happened upon Denis Ten’s unconscious body after the two suspects fled the scene. Ten was transported to a hospital, but medical professionals were unable to save him. The New York Times indicated that CPR was administered for at least two hours, but Ten ultimately succumbed to the massive blood loss he sustained from the stabbing wounds. Kazakhstan police have launched a homicide investigation and are currently looking for the two alleged assailants.
Joliet, Ill., officials are in the beginning stages of investigating a traffic stop that resulted in a violent altercation between police officers and 21-year-old Milton Travis. As The Root reports, Travis was on his way home on Friday night when he was pulled over. The police officer alleges that he ran a stop sign, and that “officers had to aggressively apply their brakes on their squad car to avoid making contact with the other vehicle.”
The officers then honked their horn at Travis, who pulled over and stopped his vehicle. When the officers approached the vehicle, Travis did not roll his window down. In the video, recorded by 19-year-old Deandra Robinson, one of the vehicle’s passengers, the officer who approached the car could be heard clearly through the glass.
Drake and Blac Chyna have become the focus of dating rumors after the two were recently seen leaving a nightclub a short time after each other. Media Take Out (MTO) reports that the Toronto rapper and the former stripper were seen talking to each other for “the entire night” in the club’s VIP section. They also claim that Drake and Chyna have a previous romantic history and that there was a time when they were more than friends/”entertainment industry associates.”
“Drake – who loves well-endowed women with LOOSE MORALS – and Chyna have dated each other in the past. But this is the first time n (sic) more than 3 years that they’ve been seen out together,” the article says.
The former CIA official who headed the agency’s hunt for terrorist leader Osama bin Laden from 1995 to 1999 is now himself calling for acts of terrorism. But the 66-year-old Michael Scheuer, who quit the CIA in 2004, said in a shocking new blog post that these new terrorist acts should be carried out not by Islamic fundamentalists but by supporters of Donald Trump. As Mediaite reported, Scheuer calls for Trump’s backers to murder his political opponents and critics — including Trump’s own predecessor in the Oval Office, President Barack Obama.
“It seems likely that it is quite near time for killing those involved in the multiple and clearly delineated attempts to stage a coup d’état against the legitimately elected Trump government and thereby kill our republic,” Scheuer wrote last Thursday on his personal blog, Non-Intervention.
Despite countless rumors that Emma Stone is pregnant with Justin Theroux’s baby, thanks to Gossip Cop we can now officially confirm the rumor is a myth. The publication debunked the rumor earlier today on their website.
Various websites and tabloids claimed that Stone was wearing baggy clothes to hide a baby bump, but Gossip Cop nixed that with cold hard facts in the shape of actual photos from events that Stone has recently attended.
Stone watched the Tony award-winning musical The Band’s Visit in late June. She snapped a photo with two of the cast members and in those pictures she’s wearing a pair of tight jeans with a tucked-in shirt, as opposed to “baggy clothes” other sources claim. It’s pretty clear that Stone is still in slim shape. Just Jared released the photo of the three, all smiles, and no bumps.
According to a recent rumor, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston are supposedly meeting in London, but Gossip Cop disputes the Grazia report that claims that the former couple is reengaging their relationship.
Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux split earlier this year, which fueled rumors that Brad Pitt has entered the picture despite the exes not being photographed together.
According to the article, Aniston is moving on from Theroux with Pitt and they plan to meet up in London where the actress is filming a new Netflix project with Adam Sandler, Murder Mystery.
However, Gossip Cop points out that the Troy actor is not in London, England, and several celebrity news publications deny that Aniston and Pitt are back on speaking terms.
This week, the 54-year-old actor was on the set of Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming movie Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, which is being filmed in Los Angeles.
Residents in the Flatiron district of Manhattan woke to the sounds of an explosion as a 100-year-old pipe burst beneath the street. According to the New York Times, the explosion happened around 6:40 a.m. Thursday morning. The pipe had burst, “producing a thick geyser of white smoke and debris that the authorities said was probably contaminated with asbestos.”
Though there were no major injuries, five people were hit with debris as asphalt and concrete were thrown hundreds of feet into the air. At least 49 buildings in the vicinity of 21st Street and Fifth Avenue had to be evacuated. Commuters this morning were also delayed due to the explosion.
Residents who had been exposed to the debris were told by city officials to place any exposed clothing in a bag and to shower to remove the debris.
Aaron Sandusky, 48, is a man stuck in a federal state penitentiary for medical marijuana. He is originally from Southern California and currently serving a 10-year federal drug sentence for running a state-legal medical marijuana business. In 2013 he was sentenced on federal charges of conspiracy and possession with the intent to distribute marijuana for running three dispensaries in Southern California even though medical marijuana was completely legal in that state.
“I wake up every day in here and ask myself, ‘How did this happen?’ There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t say, ‘Why am I here again? I’m surrounded by marijuana farms and I’m doing time for cultivation and distribution,” Sandusky sadly explained to the Huffington Post.
Joel Davis, a Columbia University student with a reputation for volunteerism and extensive work with non-profit organizations that aid women and children, left many people in shock when he was arrested and charged with possession of child pornography and other sex crimes.
The Daily Beast says that Davis, who founded an international organization called Youth to End Sexual Violence and worked with numerous outreach programs, was also the target of a federal sting. He was charged with sex crimes against children, on counts of possessing child pornography and attempting to have sex with a minor and coercing a minor.
The federal prosecutor, U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman, said that Davis fooled an entire community, portraying himself as the good guy while involved in dark deeds.
“Joel Davis started an organization devoted to stopping sexual violence, while allegedly engaged in the duplicitous behavior of sharing explicit images of infants engaged in sexual activity.”
There truly is a Guinness World Record for everything.
On Tuesday, July 17, a man from New York City set a new record for slicing the most watermelons in half on his stomach.
Ashrita Furman cut 26 watermelons in two with a sword in just 60 seconds, according to ABC News.
The 63-year-old sliced six more melons than needed to establish the new world record.
Furman completed this dangerous feat by laying on a table outside and having assistants place the large fruit onto his stomach.
He wore regular clothing, a blue T-shirt and khakis. There was no protection, such as a cutting board, underneath his shirt, which he did slice a hole into during the challenge.
At the end of a video posted on Reuters‘ Twitter page, he lifted up his shirt to see the damages and, relieved to see only a few cuts that were not bleeding, said, “Not bad.”
Lana Whitner, a Marine corps veteran, and her family were travelling from Illinois to Florida for a family vacation earlier this week. Their service dog, Wrigley, was tagging along as per usual. Whitner stopped off for a pit-stop during the long drive, when to her and the family’s shock, the SUV they were driving was stolen. Wrigley was taken, along with the vehicle. Justin Lawrence, a police officer involved in the investigation, spoke with CBS News regarding the vehicle theft incident, and how the police department’s social media plea went viral, ultimately leading to the discovery and rescue of Wrigley.
A “Ride the Ducks” boat with 30 people onboard capsized on a lake in Missouri, with multiple fatalities being reported in the accident.
The incident took place on Table Rock Lake in Bronson on Thursday evening, Fox 4 KC reported. The tourist boat collapsed at close to 7 p.m. near the Branson Belle dock, the report noted. Conditions on the boat were treacherous at the time of the crash, with wind gusts reaching 60 miles per hour at the time of the accident.
There were multiple agencies on the scene for what police had termed a “mass casualty incident.” Officials have not yet said how many people died in the Ride the Duck boat accident, the report noted, though some initial reports indicate it may have been at least six people.
Ride the Ducks is a amphibious bus that tours the land around Branson and embarks into Table Rock Lake during a 70-minute tour.
