Jennifer Lawrence Felt "Gang-Banged" By the Planet During Hacking Scandal

The 27-year-old actress recently explained that she still feels affected by the violating situation and revealed the reason she didn’t want to sue. “When the hacking thing happened, it was so unbelievably violating that you can’t even put it into words. I think that I’m still actually processing it,” Jennifer told THR. She added, “And, I don’t know, I feel like I got gang-banged by the f**king planet — like, there’s not one person in the world that is not capable of seeing these intimate photos of me. You can just be at a barbecue and somebody can just pull them up on their phone. That was a really impossible thing to process.” While many other women who were also impacted wanted to sue, Jennifer says that it wouldn’t have helped her. “None of that was gonna really bring me peace, none of that was gonna bring my nude body back to me and Nic [ex-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult], the person that they were intended for. It wasn’t gonna bring any of that back. So I wasn’t interested in suing everybody; I was just interested in healing. I think, like, a year and a half ago, somebody said something to me about how I was ‘a good role model for girls,’ and I had to go into the bathroom and sob because I felt like an imposter — I felt like, ‘I can’t believe somebody still feels that way after what happened.’ It’s so many different things to process when you’ve been violated like that.”.....»»

The Taylor Swift Groping Legal Drama Will Continue With The Jury On Monday No Matter What Judge Decides On Her Dismissal

We WILL be seeing you all next week! As you surely know, Taylor Swift has been going head to head against a Denver based DJ, named David Mueller, in court.

As you surely know, Taylor Swift has been going head to head against a Denver based DJ, named David Mueller, in court. In case you forgot, the A-lister has accused Mueller of sexually assaulting her as he allegedly "grabbed her ass" during a meet and greet back in 2013. Related: Leah Remini Wants Scientology Investigated By The Feds The feud between Mueller and Swift intensified when the disgraced DJ sued Swift for slander and the Blank Space singer responded with a sexual assault and battery countersuit. While the radio professional maintained his innocence throughout the course of the trial, the pop star testified under oath that David "grabbed [her] bare ass." Both Swift and Mueller's legal teams made their cases to the jury this week. In a twist on Friday, Taylor's team asked Judge Martinez to dismiss the case because they never directed Mueller's employer to fire him. After about twenty minutes of deliberation, the judge was unable to come to a conclusion as to whether Taylor should be released from the case and the jury was dismissed -- court will resume with the jury on Monday morning. However, a decision is expected sometime today from the judge on whether or not Taylor will be dismissed from the lawsuit against her: What to expect: Judge's ruling TODAY on releasing @taylorswift13. Regardless of ruling-- On Monday: closing arguments & jury deliberation. — Michael Konopasek (@MikeKonopasek) August 11, 2017 This officially concludes the evidentiary part of the trial and the jury will hear closing arguments next week. Since Taylor countersued, even if she is dismissed, court will have to resume to handle that part of the case. There you have it...for now! [Image via WENN.].....»»

On Tuesday, it was revealed that the Spice Girls alum's bid to seal her domestic violence case has failed. Related: Mel B Accused Of Bullying ANOTHER Witness According to TMZ, the judge overseeing the case denied the America's Got Talent judge's request to have the courtroom closed AND shot down her plea to have all the records sealed from the public. This is a huge loss for the A-lister as she believes her soon-to-be ex, Stephen Belafonte will expose their sex tapes by submitting them as evidence. The last thing Mel wants is for her children to one day discover the explicit content. However, per the judge, "salacious details" are often not enough to have a case sealed from the public. Thankfully, he did confirm that decisions regarding the children (e.g. visitation schedules) will not be discussed in open court. In short, the judge isn't willing to seal the WHOLE case, but will decide which topics will be public or private as the proceedings continue. Stay strong, Mel!! [Image via FayesVision/WENN.].....»»

Judge Who Sent Meek Mill Back To Jail For Violating Probation Is Reportedly Being Looked Into By FBI!

Sketchy. Earlier this month, a judge sentenced Meek Mill to two to four years in jail for violating probation from his 2009 drug and weapons case.

Earlier this month, a judge sentenced Meek Mill to two to four years in jail for violating probation from his 2009 drug and weapons case. It's said one of Mill's lawyers believes Judge Genece Brinkley has a grudge against the celeb because he wouldn't do a remake of Boyz II Men's On Bended Knee and give her a shoutout. Um, yes. You read that correctly. Related: Meek Mill Is *Still* Mourning His Failed Relationship With Nicki Minaj! Now, the FBI has launched a probe into Philly judge presiding over the case, according to Page Six. The 30-year-old's legal team argues Brinkley has shown "enormous bias" against Meek and acted "inappropriately" by demanding the rapper to drop his current management, Roc Nation, to sign with Philly's Charlie Mack (who has a criminal history). A source told the outlet of the new development: "The feds have an interest in the judge and [her] potential relationships. This is an investigation looking into a possible extortionate demand. Undercover agents have been in the courtroom monitoring the Meek proceedings since April 2016. Mack had previously told Meek how he ‘knows the judge and he could help him with his case.'" So strange. We'll keep you posted as we learn more. [Image via DJDM/WENN.].....»»

Related: Mandy Reveals How She Caught Her Fiancé's Eye! In the show's usual nature of exploring real world issues, The Most Disappointed Man touched on race and discrimination in the judicial system circa 1981. [These are spoilers!] The Pearsons were expecting a breezy court proceeding to make the Big Three official, but were caught off guard when the judge (Delroy Lindo) didn't think that two white parents should be raising a black child. He told the white couple: "I don't believe that child belongs in your home. That child belongs with a black family Mr. and Mrs. Pearson. How else will he see himself? Understand who he is?" Judge Bradley evoked even more emotion by using the n-word without censorship. He later explained to Jack and Rebecca: "I never understood what my blackness meant until a white man called me a n*****." Damn, NBC!

As Vogue's September cover star, the 26-year-old opens up about her relationship with director Darren Aronofsky, her upcoming projects, that video of her pole dancing, and the invasive photo hacking scandal. We've rounded up highlights from the insightful interview (below)! On being attracted to the 48-year-old director, who she met while filming Mother!: "We had energy. I had energy for him. I don't know how he felt about me. . . . I normally don't like Harvard people, because they can't go two minutes without mentioning that they went to Harvard. He's not like that." Related: How Do YOU Feel About J.Law These Days?? After seeing the final product of their upcoming project together, the Hunger Games starlet admitted: "When I saw the movie, I was reminded all over again how brilliant he is. For the past year, I've been dealing with him as just a human." She went on to praise Aronofsky as an "amazing father" (to his son he shares with actress Rachel Weisz): "I've been in relationships before where I am just confused. And I'm never confused with him." Filming Mother! with Darren was so intense, Jennifer revealed she ended up hyperventilating and dislocating a rib: "I ended up getting on oxygen. I have oxygen tubes in my nostrils, and Darren's like, ‘It was out of focus; we've got to do it again.' And I was just like, ‘Go fuck yourself.'" When asked about that infamous video of her pole dancing in a strip club, J.Law shared: "My biggest fear from that whole thing was that people were going to think that I was trying to be sexy. Also, it looked like I had taken my shirt off. I was in a crop top. I did not take off my shirt. I'm on the phone with my lawyers, and everybody's like, ‘Is there anything we need to know before it comes out?' And I'm like, ‘No, it's all there.'" And that wasn't the first time her privacy was compromised -- the actress said of the highly-publicized photo hacking scandal: "It's scary when you feel the whole world judges you. I think people saw [the hacking] for what it was, which was a sex crime, but that feeling, I haven't been able to get rid of it. Having your privacy violated constantly isn't a problem if you're perfect. But if you're human, it's terrifying. When my publicist calls me, I'm like, ‘Oh, my God, what is it?' Even when it's nothing. I'm always waiting to get blindsided again." So it's understandable why she's hesitant to allow selfies with fans in public: "I'm happy to meet people, give autographs, shake hands, and say ‘Thank you.' I wouldn't have a job if people weren't going to see my movies. It's just . . . if I'm on an airplane and I have no makeup on, I don't want to take a selfie that's going to end up on E!" Fair enough!

She made a point of mentioning all the assault victims who don't have a voice -- and what she would be doing to help change that: "I acknowledge the privilege that I benefit from in life, in society and in my ability to shoulder the enormous cost of defending myself in a trial like this. My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard. Therefore, I will be making donations in the near future to multiple organizations that help sexual assault victims defend themselves." The only thing that would be better is if it was David Mueller's money going to those organizations. But Taylor's entire payout from winning her case will be a symbolic $1.

Taylor Swift's trial against radio show host David Mueller for alleged sexual assault made some progress on the second day in court as the jury was selected, opening statements were made, and witnesses began taking the stand. To catch you up, the songstress claims the former on-air personality "reached up under my skirt and grabbed my ass right when I was having to pose for a photo" back in 2013. The Denver DJ hit back by accusing the singer of slander, and Tay then counter sued David for sexual assault and battery. What a mess. Related: Taylor Wins A Small Victory In Groping Case! During Swift's lawyer's opening statement on Tuesday, the attorney argued the 27-year-old was "taking a stand for all women" and that "this is a case of sexual assault in the workplace": "A woman is assaulted. She reports it and she gets sued … it doesn't make sense. She's trying to tell people out there that you can say no when someone grabs you no matter who they are." He went on to accuse Mueller of targeting the songstress three times: "He grabbed her rear, he victimized her by filing this lawsuit, and now he wants her to pay." Andrea Swift, Tay's mom, was visibly upset during the statement -- and she is expected to later testify during the nine-day trial. Mueller's attorney asserted his client didn't inappropriately touch Taylor, and insisted his career has been destroyed as a result of the accusations. Mueller was the first witness called to the stand -- where he said once again under oath that he did not grope the celeb when he hopped into the controversial photo. He recalled being kicked out of Swift's concert by her tour manager. More details to come as the trial continues... [Image via ATP/WENN.].....»»
