KARRUECHE TRAN FILES RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST CHRIS BROWN – (02/22/2017)

Please note the following story contains language that could be considered offensive.

Chris Brown‘s ex, Karrueche Tran, has filed a restraining order against the singer following claims that he threatened to kill her. According to Complex via the Associated Press, Tran said in a sworn statement to a judge that Brown told people he was going to kill her. The statement also says that the singer’s threats are rooted with jealousy and that he threatened to “take” Karrueche out and shoot her. 

Tran also revealed that Brown was abusive to her in the past when they dated. She accused Breezy of punching her in the stomach more than once and pushing her down the stairs. Brown was also accused of threatening Tran’s friends and allegedly threw drinks at them. TMZ reports that the domestic incidents occurred shortly after Brown pleaded guilty in his Rihanna assault cause, which means he was in violation of his probation. 

  • The terms of the restraining order state that Brown must stay a minimum of 100 yards away from Tran, her mother and her brother. 

MARIAH CAREY ‘BLAMES EVERYBODY’ FOR INFAMOUS NEW YEAR’S EVE PERFORMANCE – (02/22/2017)

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Mariah Carey revisits her disastrous Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve gig and stands firm with the statement her camp released asserting that the show sabotaged the performance and “set [her] up to fail,” which the production company in turn refuted. “I used to get upset by things,” she says of the performance. “This was out of my control, and had everything not been such a total chaotic mess, then I would have been able to make something happen. Even the dancers should have stopped dancing and helped me off the f***ing stage. I’m sorry. It was a mess, and I blame everybody, and I blame myself for not leaving after rehearsal.”

During Carey’s performance, she fumbled through three songs, visibly struggling with her earpiece as the broadcast continued. “It’s just something where if I can’t explain it to the entire world, then they’re not going to understand it, because it’s not what they do,” explains Carey. “Just like I wouldn’t understand somebody who had a desk job and how to do that. I couldn’t. I literally am incapable of being in the real world and surviving.”

LINDSAY LOHAN CLAIMS SHE WAS RACIALLY PROFILED FOR WEARING HEADSCARF – (02/22/2017)

Amid speculation that Lindsay Lohan is converting to Islam, the actress claims that she was the victim of racial profiling and Islamphobia at London’s Heathrow Airport.

The Mean Girls star was flying from London to New York after meeting with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Turkey to discuss the refugee crisis.

  • While she was in Heathrow she was stopped because she was wearing a headscarf, she claims.
  • Lohan tells Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain: “[British Airport Security] opened my passport and saw ‘Lindsay Lohan’ and started immediately apologizing, but then said ‘please take off your headscarf.’ And I did, it’s okay.”
  • The incident jolted her, she said, and made her rethink how she benefits from the privilege of being a non-Muslim celebrity: “What scared me in that moment [is] how would another woman who doesn’t feel comfortable taking off her headscarf feel? That was really interesting to me. I was kind of in shock. It was jarring.”
  • As far as the question of converting to Islam goes, she says she hasn’t made any decisions yet but that “it’s a consideration.”
