Redmond O’Neal, the son of Ryan O’Neal and Farrah Fawcett, has been in jail awaiting trial for attempted murder, among other charges, since last May. Redmond’s “crime spree”, which lasted several days, included allegedly trying to rob a Venice Beach 7/11 with a knife, allegedly punching a man in the head who tried to speak to him, allegedly stabbing somebody in the face at the Venice boardwalk, and allegedly attacking another man with a bottle. The alleged victim of the latter assault is a man named Ken Fox, and he claims that the attack was a hate crime. And he’s suing Redmond for $100 million in damages. Nothing alleged about that.
Everybody’s getting in trouble for their role in the Jussie Smollett “event” (Happening? Occurrence? Parade of fuckery? That last one, I think), except Jussie himself. TMZ reports that Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx has been subpoenaed to appear in court to answer for her role in helping Jussie Matrix strut his ass home, practically scot-free.
A couple of weeks ago, documents came out that showed Kim was unable to sit there and eat her rice after “informally” recusing herself from the case. Text messages between herself and her top assistant calling Jussie a “washed up actor” but advising against “overcharging” him, completed the “not good” look. Now a retired appellate judge wants to drag this mess out further. All over a nasty Subway sandwich?!? Tuna at that! #TeamToGos
Remember this asshole? Harvey Weinstein’s trial for sexual assault is moving forward, but according to Page Six, we’re not going to be privy to an upcoming pre-trial hearing which “focuses on whether evidence of Weinstein’s bad behavior for which he is not charged will be admitted at trial”. During a preliminary hearing today, a judge decided to keep that hearing sealed and the courtroom under wraps, which is what attorneys for the prosecution and the defense wanted, but for different reasons.
The City Of Chicago Is Moving Forward With Plans To Sue Jussie Smollett For Failing To Pay His $130,000 Bill
The deadline for Jussie Smollett to march his ass into Rahm Emanuel‘s office, wearing his Matrix sunglasses, and plop a bag filled with $130,106 crumpled up dollar bills onto his desk has passed. So the city is suing. Last week Rahm issued Jussie an invoice that might have read “for sundry chicanery” and asked that he reimburse the City of Chicago for the costs it incurred investigating what they think was a fake attack. The deadline for repayment was last night, and according to Deadline, ain’t nobody seen hide nor hair of Jussie yet.
That Rolling Stone interview from last year gave me the impression that Johnny Depp’s closest friends are his legal team (and any random journalists who happen to stop by for a chat). Now I’m pretty sure I’m right because he’s just filed a wild $50 million lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard. In it he states that Amber’s claims of domestic abuse are all just “an elaborate hoax to generate positive publicity” for herself. The suit is pinned to claims Amber made in a December, 2018 Op-Ed for The Washington Post. Johnny also dragged Elon Musk into this mess by claiming he and Amber started their relationship a month after they were married, and that Elon was at their house, creeping in and out of the penthouse elevator, the night he and Amber got into a fight over a postnuptial agreement. Johnny says that fight led to Amber throwing a vodka bottle at him, which resulted in him having to have his finger “surgically reattached”. Just when we all finished treatment for the smoke inhalation we suffered from during their train wreck of a divorce, Johnny is bringing it back. Grab your oxygen masks!
As you sit there, comfortable in your pampered existence, never forget that there’s a whole other world of pain, turmoil and danger up #inthesestreets. Well, to be more exact, up #ontheseslopes. Gwyneth Paltrow knows better than anyone about the dangers of the dog-eat-dog world of recreational skiing, especially since she got slapped with a lawsuit by a man who accused her of skiing into him on the mean slopes of Park City, Utah. Now Gwyneth is taking justice into her own hands by enacting what is called a “Connecticut Drive-by“. Gwyneth is counter-suing Dr. Terry Sanderson, claiming that it was he who skied into her! And she’s digging the knife in even further by pulling a Randolph and Mortimer Duke on him and asking for retribution in the sum of $1, according to TMZ.
