Police reports make Michael Jackson out to be ‘drug- and sex-crazed predator’
The King of Pop was also the king of kinky. Michael Jackson’s Neverland estate in Santa Barbara County, Calif., was filled with child pornography, bloody animal torture and S&M pictures, according to police reports obtained by Radar Online. The reports stem from multiple raids by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department on the compound connected to the 2003 child sex abuse investigation of the pop icon. An investigator on the case told Radar that the seized items, which include dozens of videos, photos and personal notes, “paint a dark and frightening picture of Jackson.” “The documents exposed Jackson as a manipulative, drug- and sex-crazed predator who used blood, gore, sexually explicit images of animal sacrifice and perverse adult sex acts to bend children to his will,” the source said. “He also had disgusting and downright shocking images of child torture, adult and child nudity, female bondage and sadomasochism.”
Anton Yelchin’s Death Under Investigation By Fiat Chrysler
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV (FCHA.MI) said on Monday it would investigate a crash that killed “Star Trek” actor Anton Yelchin in his recalled 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Yelchin was killed when the SUV rolled away and pinned him against a fence in Los Angeles, police said on Sunday. Fiat Chrysler in April recalled more than 1.1 million cars and SUVs worldwide because vehicles may roll away after drivers exit, an issue linked to 41 injuries, 212 crashes and 308 reports of property damage, though it had no immediate fix for owners. Yelchin died of accidental blunt force asphyxia, Los Angeles County Coroner Assistant Chief Ed Winter said in a phone interview Monday. The results of toxicology tests to determine if Yelchin was under the influence of any substances are not due back for at least six weeks, he added.
‘Finding Dory’ Keeps Swimming To Massive $136.2 Million Box Office Debut
Family audiences turned out in droves over the weekend, propelling “Finding Dory” to a massive $136.2 million debut and establishing a new record for an animated film opening. The sequel to 2003’s “Finding Nemo” was bolstered by strong reviews and residual affection for the Oscar-winning first film. It’s a return to form for Pixar after the animation studio behind “Toy Story” and “The Incredibles” suffered its first box office failure last year with “The Good Dinosaur.” But its decades of excellence continue to be the brand’s major selling points. “It’s amazing when you look at the longevity of this brand, the viability of it, and the unfettered enthusiasm pretty much everyone has for Pixar,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at comScore.
Taylor Swift is dating like a dude
Taylor Swift scoops up awards left and right for her music, but it’s her romances that have everybody talking. Last week, she was seen making out with British actor Tom Hiddleston just days after splitting up with DJ Calvin Harris. Pretty swift, right? The singer’s dating style is distinctly dudelike. Although she may have once been the little girl who cried over her exes in song, she’s since transformed into a strong alpha. Standing up repeatedly to guys like Kanye West has seemed to inform the way that this 26-year-old deals with her men.
Here’s how T-Swift dates like a total bro.
Iggy Azalea: Evicts Nick Young’s Car … It’s a Classic!
Iggy Azalea was dead serious about getting Nick Young out of her life — ’cause the classic car she gave him for Xmas was just towed away from her home. Iggy gave Nick the 1962 Chevy Impala for Christmas back in 2014 — much MUCH happier times. Nick loved the car and drove it to Lakers practice to show it off right after he got it. But that was before things went sour — and, with Iggy announcing that she dumped him over the weekend, seems she wasted no time getting his ride out of the house.
Don McLean, wife finalize divorce with $10M settlement
“American Pie” singer and songwriter Don McLean and his wife have finalized their divorce and agreed to a $10 million settlement. A spokesman for McLean said Monday that the singer “chose to ignore a premarital agreement” and provide the settlement. McLean’s wife Patrisha, an author and photographer, filed for divorce citing “adultery, cruel and abusive treatment, and irreconcilable differences” in legal papers. The couple had been married for about 30 years. They have two adult children. McLean, who lives in the coastal town of Camden, was arrested in January on charges including domestic violence assault. He has pleaded not guilty.
‘Game of Thrones’ actress almost died from cocaine overdose
In the bloodthirsty fantasy world of “Game of Thrones,” Josephine Gillan has stayed the course – but then she is a born survivor. Many popular characters have been unexpectedly slaughtered in the steamy TV saga about warring families, but the 27-year-old remains a “GoT” veteran. The Brit has played prostitute Marei since the second season and will be back for the seventh, which starts shooting later this year. More importantly, she has survived a troubled childhood and a debauched porn star past, when she sold her body to fuel her drug addiction. She is deadly serious when she says “GoT” saved her from an early grave. Josephine says: “’Game of Thrones’ saved my life. I couldn’t have gone on for much longer. I was addicted to cocaine and to keep the supply I needed I had to sell my body three or four times a week. I was earning thousands of pounds a time for sleeping with wealthy punters. They’d pay a fortune knowing they were having sex with a porn star.
Eddie Redmayne and wife welcome first child
Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne and his wife, Hannah, have welcomed a daughter just in time for Father’s Day. The actor’s rep confirmed Sunday that the couple are new parents to daughter Iris Mary Redmayne. They announced the arrival of their first child in the U.K. paper “The Times.” The Redmaynes have been married since late 2014. The 34-year-old actor won an Oscar in 2015 for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in “The Theory of Everything.” Redmayne was nominated again this year for his role as transgender artist Lili Elbe in “The Danish Girl.”
The departing ‘Hamilton’ actors are making big plans
Now that ‘Hamilton’ has harvested its Tonys, some big names have announced their departure from the show — July 9 will be the last performance for Lin-Manuel Miranda, Phillipa Soo and Leslie Odom Jr. Don’t worry, they won’t be out of sight for long. Miranda, of course, is never short on projects. Most recently The Man Who Never Sleeps authorized the sale of a T-shirt bearing his Tony-acceptance sonnet (“Love cannot be killed or swept aside…Now fill the world with music, love and pride”) to benefit Equality Florida Action. Looking further ahead, Miranda will be in the news again this fall when the Disney animated movie “Moana,” for which he wrote songs, comes out. He’s also slated to star alongside Emily Blunt in “Mary Poppins Returns,” playing a lamplighter named Jack. That one’s scheduled for Dec. 25, 2018, but it’s not too early to start obsessing about it. Finally Harvey Weinstein’s talking of doing a movie version of Miranda’s first Broadway musical, 2008’s “In the Heights,” so our man will be busy on that front as well — even if he may be a little too old to reprise his role as Usnavi.
