(SL) – Janet Jackson gives women like me hope. Pregnant at 50, the star stepped out to do some shopping (reportedly for baby furniture) in London. The singer/actress has been on bed rest since discovering she was carrying her first child with husband Wissam Al Mana.
After canceling her tour in April, Ms. Jackson has been following her doctor’s orders and keeping it light to ensure a safe and healthy pregnancy. Janet looked happy and comfortable as the natural beauty was causal in sweats and a black headband.
Entertainment Tonight reports that Janet arrived in her chauffeured Mercedes. Workers then shut down the shop so Janet could sit down and look over some of the store’s offerings without being bothered by members of the public. After about 45 minutes inside, Janet left with one bag.
Can’t wait until a gender reveal and hopefully she won’t make us wait a whole year to see what the little bundle of joy looks like.
(SL) – Dramatic video has been released showing the final minutes of Keith Lamont Scott’s life. City officials haven’t released dash-cam or body-cam footage yet claiming they don’t want to impede the investigation. But Scott’s family submitted video taken by Scott’s wife Rakeyia to the New York Times.
The cellphone camera video includes Rakeyia’s pleas to her husband to get out of his truck and her pleas to the officers not to shoot him. But the video does not include a view of the shooting itself. Nor does it answer the crucial question of whether Mr. Scott had a gun, as the police have maintained. The officer who shot Scott has been identified as Brentley Vinson.
What is clear is that Mr. Scott had parked his truck in a visitor’s space in their apartment complex, where he often waited for one of his children to return home on a bus. The police were there to serve a warrant on someone else.
The lawyers said Ms. Scott had come out of the apartment with a cellphone charger for her husband and noticed that police officers were around the truck.
Justin Bamberg, one of the attorney’s representing the Scott family along with Eduardo Curry, said in an interview Friday that the video did not prove whether the shooting was justified or not. Rather, he said, it offered “another vantage point” of the incident. He says he hoped the Police Department would release its own videos of the shooting, as protesters have been demanding since Mr. Scott was killed on Tuesday afternoon.
Take a look at the Video…WARNING…DISTURBING VIDEO AND GRAPHIC LANGUAGE
(SL) – It was a scene out of a movie. Dozens of police officers camped outside of Pop/R&B star Chris Brown’s mansion during a day long standoff in which some media outlets reported that the singer had ‘barricaded’ himself inside.
But really he was just waiting on his attorney Mark Geragos to arrive and for LAPD to issue a warrant. It all stemmed from a fraudulent ex-beauty queen who claimed to be at Brown’s house on business but had somehow found herself in his hot tub and around some jewelry that she was warned not to touch….and that’s where the drama ensued.
Baylee Curran who was stripped of her Miss California (Regional) title (after nude photos surfaced) and has yet to return her sash and crown to pageant officials who claim they’ve requested the items be returned several times, is also wanted in NY after she stole a girl’s $1000 LV purse and the contents inside which included cash and a wallet. Reportedly, after falsely accusing a few friends of infractions one that resulted in a restraining order, some of them are speaking out about Baylee’s ability to stretch the truth which appears to be what happened with Chris Brown.
Baylee claims that she became curious about a diamond necklace that was being presented among the group at Brown’s mansion and after an associate of Chris’ warned her not to touch the jewelry Chris ordered her to leave the house and even pointed a gun at her head to push the seriousness of her desired departure.
But in today’s world of technology it looks like a text message might clear Chris’ name.
Furthermore, Browns Attorney told ABC News: “There was a search that was done.
“They went in, and said they had a description of the piece of jewelry.
